Check out these shots of Kazu Imai’s USDM inspired Type-R sent to me from the homie Yuya Yasunari. This DC2 is no stranger to the USDM Jams going down over in Japan, so you may remember when it was rolling on Work Meisters. Well, he’s back with a refreshing change, a custom set of reversed LeMans.

    I am lost. There is nothing USDM about that car. So why was it at the USDM jam?

      Do yourself a favor and research what the USDM Jams are all about, then maybe you can answer your own questions without making useless assumptions. Also, while you’re at it check out some past coverage from these shows and tell me how many Fatlace/StanceWorks/Canibeat stickers, roof racks, US license plates, tucked bays, etc. you can count, unless you think they’re not a USDM thing also? Please think twice before replying again.

        Really Bro? You’re gonna be that big of an ass? If ya really wanna get technical. The stickers, and roof rack thing actually started as a Euro thing, not USDM. But hey who am I? I just make useless assumptions. BUT….if you read the list of mods to the car. Almost all are either JDM or EDM. So again, there is nothing USDM about the car. Alot of the stuff is copied here in the US. Now, rip me again….o and by the way, those are not US plates….douche

    Apparently EDM tails and gauge cluster=USDM inspired…
