Revved Magazine and VQ35DEs
A good friend of mine for the past 15 years or so emailed me earlier this year asking if i would be interested in writing for the magazine where he works. I agreed and really enjoyed this article.

Lone Star Pro Am Round 1 Top 16
This weekend proved to be an interesting one for drivers. A fast course, coupled with a tough line definitely separated the men from the boys. Adverse weather conditions late into qualifying certainly posed issues for Kevin Williams and Fielding Shredder. The track has become insanely slick now and will certainly provide for a dangerous Top 16 bout.
Our sponsored car piloted by Fielding Shredder of Shredder Racing qualified Top 16!
Garret Hoyt, Dewayne Ramsey, William Little, Josh McGuire, Ben Green, True Taylor, Chris Tyrone and Mario Gomez make it to Top 8!
Mario Gomez beats out Garret Hoyt, William Little takes the lead over Dewayne Ramsey, Josh takes the win from Ben Green, and True Taylor forfeits to Chris Tyrone due to the wet conditions for the Top 4 spots
Mario Gomez, William Little, Josh and Christ Tyrone battle it out for the Top 3 spots
Mario beats William, securing a podium spot. Chris spins out his first run against Josh, giving Josh a strong advantage. Josh wins the round and faces off with Mario Gomez in the battle for First Place.
Vying for 3rd place spot, Chris comes out of drift after entry trying to compensate which ultimately will give William an advantage. Chris goes off track, giving William the 3rd place spot.
Mario Gomez, the Texas native, goes against Josh (who apparently just moved to Texas) for 1st and 2nd places. Josh puts some distance between the two cars while leading the round. Upon switching positions, Mario spins while leading, and Josh wins 1st place!
Congrats to Josh McGuire for first place, Mario Gomez for 2nd and William Little for 3rd!!
oh, the tides of change
So much has been happening in the past 8 months that i have neglected this site, and i apologize. Between moving to Texas, used for housing by some awful drift-groupie broad, getting my deceased father’s affairs in order, revamping his house, setting up shop (Hell Bent Garage), another amazing 8 Ball Rally in the works, sponsoring Shredder Racing‘s Pro Am series car, building my own 240SX… the list goes on and on. I promise to update this site more so that both of my blog’s followers are kept abreast of what’s been going on out here in the Lonestar State.
8 Ball Coast2Coast generation 2 flyers are out!
So, we’re nearing the big day!! Register at http://www.8ballcoast2coast.com before March 31st to guarantee your spot!!
Register for the 8 Ball COAST 2 COAST
Remember, kiddos: Registration ends March 31st for the 1st Annual 8Ball Coast 2 Coast Poker Run!!
8 Ball Coast 2 Coast
Hey, do YOU like 80’s themed poker runs? Do YOU like Spring Break in Daytona?! DO YOU WANT TO SCORE SOME SCRATCH?!?!?!!
Welcome to the First Annual 8 Ball Coast 2 Coast Rally!!
This will be a 5 stop poker run from a currently undisclosed starting point (TBA shortly before event) and ending in Daytona Beach on Saturday, April 6th, 2013. Each stop will be ran by one of our AMAZING title sponsors!
And more to be announced!
This event will also include a 5 item scavenger hunt. Each item (of which there is only one of – so get there first!) will be worth a wildcard on your poker hand!!
Each paid entry (one entry per driver/car) will get you a custom 8 Ball Coast 2 Coast t-shirt, sticker, flyer and other misc shwag! Each sponsor will also be handing out their own brand on nonsensical shwag for you to covet until the end of days!
Note: If you are a passenger in a car, you cannot participate in the poker hand unless you also purchase an entry. One poker hand per paid entry (cards to be supplied day of event)
Click to enter >>>Enter Now! <<< Click to enter
Rules of the event:
This is a poker run, not a race. 8 Ball coast 2 Coast, its affiliates and sponsors will NOT be held responsible for any/all legal troubles your dumb, speeding ass gets into. Got a speeding ticket? Sorry for your loss. Hopefully you get the best poker hand and will be able to pay for it.
Paying your entry fee does NOT guarantee that you’ll win big money. But, it WILL get you plenty of awesome, useless stuff (t-shirt, stickers, etc)
Best poker hand at the end of the rally yields 25% of entry fees collected. (example: 100 entries = $5,000. 1st place winner would win $1,250.00!). 2nd place wins 10% and 3rd place 5%
One entry fee = one poker hand card. Have four people in your car? One entry is cool, but only one person can get their card filled out. Passengers can also pay entry if they wish to participate in the poker hand portion of the day. If they don’t wish to, that’s cool, they can just ride along for the antics. Each poker card MUST be stamped at each stop in order to qualify to win. Yes, we have custom stamps at each stop so you can’t cheat.
Scavenger hunt: There will be 5 items sprinkled along the way with vague details as to their whereabouts. Be the first to find that item and snatch it! Bring it with you all the way to the end, and earn yourself a wild card on your poker hand! Find all 5, and have the highest hand of the day! (Must still have a completed poker card stamped at each poker stop. We can’t have you just out there looking for my shit)
Hotel details to be announced soon.

RIP Yellow Lab Volcano
Sad to say, but it was doomed before it was ever started. Our good buddy from America’s top hat, Sasha, opened up his newest shop iteration: OnPoint Dyno
Much to the chagrin of the Ziptied community, he strayed away from our recommendations of calling this new facility, “Yellow Lab Dyno”. Such a shame. Sure, his shop name brings to mind young, slender women gallivanting about on their tiptoes to some glass armonica whilst being thrown by some big dicked Russian of equal stature, but YLV just DOES something for us instead.
mmmm… sugar plums
That being said, We wish him the best with this new endeavor. Sasha offers mobile dyno tuning where he “brings the party to you!”
Contact him via his FB fan page: HERE
And then lament the awesomeness that could have been “Yellow Lab Volcano”
RIP 2012 – 2012

Florida takes over Formula D!!
So many fresh faces this year in Formula D! This weekend is their Long Beach, CA round and it proves to be pretty gnarly!! Lots of luck to the local Florida boys, Pat, Chelsea & J-Lowe… plus the boys from Lutz Performance doing big things with Kenny Moen! Looking good guys! Watch the Formula D live feed right here!
Time for some new pants…
AMS is always doing big things, but 233mph in the new GTR? Intense.
Sliding out of control due to a road imperfection and wrangling it back into shape at that speed? Fully Sick.
