For the last 15 years the S14 is considered to be one of the most modified FR platforms. Drift or grip, the car cemented its nameplate in the tuning scene with its countless aftermarket support. With the rise of fitment enthusiasts in the last 5 years, it has also been a solid choice due

Offset Kings Japan, Nissan Style

If I could choose one Japanese car brand to drive forever, it would be a Nissan. For the past 10 years, Silvias and Skylines are the cars I pay closer and immediate attention during meets and shows. It has been a part of my automotive DNA and that’s what makes
