Professional-grade photo and video equipment used to only be accessible by those with the right connections or fat wallets, but this concept has changed drastically in just the last few years. The industry of visual media has exploded, popularized by social media and web-based platforms that allow everyone to share thoughts, ideas and creations in high quality. The struggle now is on the manufacturers’ end, as brands push the capabilities of their cameras while attempting to keep prices low, in order to meet the demands of the fast-growing photo/video enthusiast market. No stranger to both the professional and the hobbyist…

Everyone knows that guy that never drives his car. You know, the friend that has a sick car but never drives anywhere. On occasion, he might bring his car out for a Sunday cruise but that’s about it. The car rarely leaves the garage. Either he’s scared of theft or after buying all those parts, he can’t afford the gas. Rawgie Tagle of Orange County, California is the exact opposite of that guy. Rawgie can be seen rolling his Integra sedan to the racetrack, grocery store, work, anywhere and everywhere he needs to go. Heck, he even cruises with a…

From holiday get-togethers in hometowns to the giant ball drop in Times Square, you can depend on a series of celebrations occurring as the year comes to an end.

For those that know racing, know the incredible amount of time and energy it takes to go from a concept to actually taking the finished product down the strip. The thought of transforming a car from an OEM slug to a quarter-mile monster in just six days would make most shops cringe, unless the shop is Factor X Engineering. Staff Report // Pictures by Michael Ferrara The Acura NSX may be the finest automobile to ever come out of Japan, at least if you are a Honda enthusiast. Those that know the NSX, consider it as a celebration of balance…

About a week ago I mentioned the name Abel Ibarra to one of our younger sta members and all I got back was a blank stare. I though to myself, well maybe this person isn’t a rotary fan. So I mentioned the names Steph Papadakis and Ed Bergenholtz. I thought to myself that of course they would know these pioneers of Honda performance. Alas, the reaction was the same stare of ignorance. The names David Buschur, Adam Saruwatari and Vinny Ten also meant nothing. I was both sad and angry that any “import performance enthusiast” wouldn’t know about some of…

In 1985, the Titanic was found, Back to the future was number one in the box office and Bill Cosby had the number one show on television. During that same year, Publisher Kipp Kington launched Turbo & High-Tech Performance magazine. During an age when “no replacement for displacement” ignorance reigned supreme, Kipp’s fascination with the magic of boost and nitrous oxide convinced him to launch a new magazine into an automotive segment that simply didn’t exist yet. Kipp’s combination of insight, courage and perseverance allowed him to successfully explore and define a new area of automotive performance on an unexplored…

A lot has changed. We have two presidential candidates on deck that seem no better than each other and even Britain is following in our footsteps to secede from the motherland. While we haven’t done the best job keeping our readers updated on D’GARAGE Project CR-X,rest assured that the project is alive and well. In fact, we pulled late nights for weeks to ensure that the vehicle stays running and doesn’t fall into the trap of becoming a non-operational paperweight collecting dust in the garage (aka 99% of project cars). In short, we’ve got a lot of catching up to…

TOP SECRET AND ITS FOUNDER Mr. Kazuhiko “Smoky” Nagata have earned a reputation for building fast cars and taking them around the world to exploit their capabilities.

Get back in the driver’s seat. this popular and sound advice is often given to drivers that recently experienced a mishap, in order to keep them from losing their edge. Some can’t bounce back, while others return with a vengeance. The latter group exudes a champion’s spirit, the motivation that separates the world’s best from the rest. Text by Richard Fong // Photos by Richard Fong and Courtesy of Brian Young/AMS Performance A Winner’s Drive Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi offers a prime example of this attitude. He captured the GT-R Quick Class victory at the 2014 Shootout presented by Buschur Racing…

In automotive culture, excess garners attention. People love to compete for the highest peak horsepower, the lowest possible ride height or the most flamboyant widebody fenders. For Yokohama tuning shop, Advance, building a car that balances style, speed and practicality without being excessive makes the most sense.

When he started his search for a car, Yagihashi knew he wanted a lightweight chassis with plenty of power. Most importantly, he wanted something exciting on track but also practical for commuting to and from work. To…
