1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You should kill whoever called an ambo for you. Never involve the authorities with your (incapacitated) buddies lestin' there's a legit emergency. Even then lol

    I can see that stance nation is just as awful on the other side of the ocean.

    That Soarer isn't bad though. Reminds me of my cousin's (pretty rare) Corolla liftback of the same generation. His was white with gold wire wheels.

    Huh? I'd rather have had some potassium chloride and electrolytes in me via an IV than not. And you're assuming they were hammered and I should kill them for doing the right thing. My friends aren't idiots.

    Edit: On a lighter note - gorgeous Sunday morning drive. Normally hate vertical photos, but this deserved it. Best part was chasing an Interlagos Blue E39 M5 towards the end.

    That soarer engine is ridiculous. ITB setup?

    Stance isn't really my thing, but some of those cars have been lowered pretty tastefully. I don't 'get' it. The miata wasn't as awful as some of the ones I've seen here.

    In other news, had a pretty awesome day of driving today. Local roads in NH with the top down and gorgeous fall scenery. Should have made my gf take some video. Should have also installed my header on friday night/saturday morning. Need to do ittt early this week so I can put some miles with the setuppp.

    @ramuman that's freaking weird. How do they get you for your license if you pass out at a wedding for unrelated issues...

    I went to Stance nation expecting to see pastel green golfs with bicycles on the roof and the drivers Vaping. :lol:
    But it was so much better than expected. Famlies were out. People were walking their dogs. Friends who came in groups were having Barbeques. It was a relaxed festival atmosphere. Where the Stance crowd hosted the show. But all types of car tuners showed up. A fantastic day out. And i got to meet and chat with the Dude who make the "rocket Bunny" bodykits. Look at product booths. And could really admire some of the top notch work people are bringing to the party. :happy:

    These are my personal faves from the show.

    This Silvia had a full tubed chassis. A plethora of custom work. But painted in stock colors.

    Omg. The color fade left to right, the pink panther on the fuse box, and the rattle can painted oil cooler with all dat bling.

    The welding. O. M. G. The welding. .

    With all breeds of Subaru on show. Miata's, Z cars, and some Euro's. There really was something for everyone.
    While stupid camber is a fad that will pass, the age old formula of slamming a car to the ground, with slick paint. On nice wheels. With quality workmanship is something that will never go out of style. So thanks stance crowd. For keeping hot rodding and tuning alive into the next generation. :fonz:

    And you can believe it. Next year there will be a Slammed yellow Gc8 wowing the crowds.

    Challenge is, "how to make this pretty car more sinister":devil:. . .

    @double00. The hot tub bimmer was a satin metallic wrap.

    @rtc. Yup. Itb's and a showstopping eye for detail.
    I really was surprised to see so many tastefully modified street cars.

    So teh plan for Subie Supremacy?
    Widebody. Carbon. Slammed. With just enough suspension to still be race car.
    2-piece rims(work,BBS,whatever.)and dat mean exhaust note. Inside? Early 2,000's "Bride" seat. Nardi steering wheel. Stealth fit. But decent audio. -going full tilt, almost period correct daily racecar. :slayer:

    Friend will take his ratted widebody Silvia.

    Are you shitting me???!
    -you hold the brake, push in the clutch, turn the key, and THEN push a Button????!!!!!! :fu:
    Yeezus.
    [​IMG]

    Help us.
    What the eff ever happened to checking the park brake is off. It's not in gear. And you just twist the key? Key on, key off. Honda. You have failed this city. You only need a start button with keyless entry. And a sensor key. So you sit yo ass down and push the damned button. (Like Toyota does)

    [VIDEO] [/VIDEO]

    Subaru over engineer stuff to be awesome. Like the 2x3 way cupholders. Honda just makes more stuff. I don't want to "feel more involved" by having more to do . F*ck.
    Amen for 90's cars.
    The key works, and so do the Cupholders. :worship:

    I died a little at that stanced JZA80 Supra but then the Soarer redeemed it. HRoi hits it on the head - I was under the romantic ideal that stance hadn't invaded Japan as badly as it has here. Those are some quality cars tho.
