Built for the Human Race – 4 door R32 Skyline (HCR32)

When I was a kid, sports cars were badass, untamed, and sexy. The car commercials on TV marketed performance. Hell - performance was mainstream! And Nissan was at the TOP of their game. Just look up this Nissan 300zx Superbowl commercial. Car brands based their...

Prestone Total Cooling System Cleaner

This is a 100% real life scenario... no 'paid promotion' I swear lol. I recently used Prestone Total Cooling System Cleaner in my Porsche 944, and it seems to have totally fixed my overheating issue! The 944 is kind of a never-ending project… go figure lol. But it's a...

Prentice Performance // Heaven Is a Place On Earth

Let’s go back in time... to the late 90’s. I was a kid. And the kid-version of me would trade in my chores for a trip to the local hobby store. It was my favorite place to go, as I was heavily into trains the first 6-7 years of my life. There was one shop in...

Wicked supercharged-to-turbocharged R53 Mini Cooper S

In the car world, saying “from humble beginnings” is a phrase that's often followed with someone’s explosion of e-fame stardom that leaves them with an inflated ego. While this isn’t always the case, in today’s day & age, it seems more & more that it’s...

Got Balls? (throwback feature from 2007)

Let's journey back... back to S3 Magazine circa 2007: -----You gotta have a big set when your goal is winning the NOPI Drift Championship. A great car and a large bank account are nice to have at your disposal, but if you don’t have the balls to risk both man &...

Lifted Civic Update #20: All About Verification

It's been an... interesting week to say the least. We went from making incredible progress on the car to nearly a standstill in the same week. As we went to test fit the CR-V axles, we realized that the bearings were improperly installed. They were loose and crooked....

The Never Selling Story

Chris Neranjan has owned this Hawkeye STI for over a decade. Notice - the trend of longterm ownership with STIs & Evos. These ultimate tuner cars of the 2000s car may have been a little pricey when they came out, sure. But they’re still pricey now. It was a good...

Getting Elevated: Overland Jeep JL

Getting Elevated: Overland Jeep JL

“It’s all about the journey, not the destination” That’s a quote I’ve heard many times, but a concept I didn’t fully understand until I joined the Overlanding scene. Overlanding gave me the ability to explore different areas near & far, at my own pace, all while...

GT-R Done: Red and Carbon R35

GT-R Done: Red and Carbon R35

Recently, Wooley and I got the chance to drive a new NSX for the weekend. While shooting a video on that car, we realized how it’s impossible to grasp the real feelings behind the car’s unreal numbers… until you’ve had 1st-hand seat time. And frankly, for a lot of us,...

Drive Más – Overland Toyota Tacoma

Drive Más – Overland Toyota Tacoma

I'm a Jeep guy. That means I wave back. I think crossover SUVs are basically minivans, and I'm probably going to have an eclectic collection of rusting junk in my backyard one day. I blame my father for this addiction, as he owned (only) a CJ-5 when I was born… which...
