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...

Awww Mom, You’re Just Jealous it’s the ST Boys!

Let’s be honest for a sec. The Fiesta ST is hands-down the car you want. …Without the nameplate you want. It’s a proportionately out-of-wack jellybean car with a piñata badge. So what… get over it dude. Because if you can’t have fun in a FiST, then you just can’t have...

1oz Fine Silvia

Has anybody ever owned just one 240? I don’t think that’s exists. It seems like people have either owned none… or 5+. And that really says something about Nissan’s S-Chassis. Doesn’t it? So let’s give the car some credit… as ENTHUSIASTS and not just drift junkies. I...
