I found this nice lil R/C car (about 1:24 scale?) from Tomy for $59HKD (around 10CAD?) That's their effort after the famous ripoff called bitch arg. full function 6 direction R/C car with Toyota Hiace body to boot...feel so gangster. 2 speed to choose from puts together like Tamiya's Mini 4WD car has all the difficult bits like IC board and battery terminals pre-assembled for you. Pretty good drifter R/C too just find some hardwood floor and it'd be drifting all day. Same as the bitch arg it has a slew of aftermarket parts straight from Tomy from a fast gear set to heatsink to ABS plastic bodykits for your particular ride...

Also comes in 350Z, RX-8, March, Legacy wagon, Crown Athlete, MARK X bodies to choose from. Technically it has solid rear axle with locking diff and mcpherson front struts...steering system consist of a motor (same size as the motor driving the car and I'm not joking) running a centrifugal clutch system steering the car. controls are digital but the clutched steering system allows the steering angle to correspond to vehicle speed.

Front wheels can have mad camber... :cool:

This is my now famous random car pics:

All these cars are found in on single block in Mongkok known to house the maddest craziest tuners in HK.

Car #1 Subaru Impreza WRX STi - Every replaceable panel is replaced with CFRP and with a huuuuge intercooler and turbo combination this car is lethal.

Car #2 Silvia S15 - Silvia is sex
http://www.dorikaze.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2597&stc=1

Car #3 Silvia S15 - inspired by D1GP cars this has a Top Secret style gold paint job and chrome blings. Brembo brakes F/R completes the looks. No idea on the performance.

Wow, great pics. I remember I went to that area of Mong kok when I went to HK on 2002. All the shops were so small, they had like 1 car width garages with 1 hoist and a shop area that's like 15ft wide and 6 feet deep. Guys would be doing stereo installs on cars that just double park! Craziness!

Good find on that DIN pocket thing. :)

Finally a memorabilia picture of me bashing one of the most difficult and dangerous touges in the city. Using my family's Crammy...I mean Cumry....I mean Camry. 2.2L automatic fury. I have a video in .mov format but I can't find a host for it...The Ying Hung Ting building next to the car is unique and symbolizes the collecting spot for local racers... I went in a particularly odd time 2am Monday morning to get a clear shot.... There were still a few racers there when I just got there though. Funny thing is I managed to race a Toyota hiace down the hill later that night....drifting cargo vans is a sight to behold.

Talk about the "cartoon" cars I didn't take any pics of the R32 because we get more R32 density in the streets than Japan. I didn't take any pics of the FC because I forgot to. Funny thing about the FC is that it's the only vehicle of the 4 that has zero damage on it. My friend jokes that the engine must have blown before it could take the first corner. The display is done at the New Century Plaza which is in the heart of Mongkok the cars are not worth the land space they are occupying IMO. But to those people in HK who rarely see anything more than 10 years old they sure attract a crowd.

HK cops are lazy. I mean I can be going up and down the touge for hours and no one gives a damn says a lot.

I'm not disclosing the location of the cup holders because they are raking in huge $$ for me over ebay right now and no one is taking that away from me. :D

Anyone got space to let me host some touge runs?

I can host your vids, unlimited bandwidth on a T3 connection. I also host a few of Mig's videos (remember the 300C vids?). So how about a trade? I host your vids, unlimited bandwidth, on a fast T3 connection... for a din cup holder at a reasonable price...? ;) :D

TVK: I'll have to see my supplier about it...

Finally found a 86 that's not used in the movie:
http://www.dorikaze.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2622&stc=1
To top it off it's a COUPE! The body is immaculate condition not a single spot of rust anywhere.

Nice Advan rims on this Levin. Notice the Advan NEOVA rubber.... some tires I'd kill for.

Close relative to the Echo hatchback, the Fun Car Go (often misunderstood as Fun Cargo) It's basically an Echo wagon.

http://www.dorikaze.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2646&stc=1
http://www.dorikaze.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2648&stc=1
It's a steering wheel hub spacer from HKB. Some china man bought my existing steering wheel hub so I had to get another one...wait now that I think about it he didn't take my spacer with him..... dayum. To ebay it goes!

and this is my "stock" of cup holders.... :D

Finally seen it in person!!! THE LV 86!!

the plates are LV 86 too!!! This guy is brilliant, he probably didn't have much money for a full body paint job so he painted his car flat black, and then pasted LV transparent stickers all over the car to make it LV spec....

I found this very nice looking Echo sedan derivative in Shanghai. If only we got this instead of the ugly Platz...As someone mentioned this is called the Toyota Vios. The wagon was Fun car go or Echo Verso.

My friend watched the Initial D movie....he said it sucked big hairy bum donuts. He said the only people that would like it are ricers and people that thought the "Young and the Dangerous" movies were real. He now wants to officially kill Jay Chow. For some reason I believe him.
He also wants to sue the makers for compensation as a result of losing 2 hours of his life watching this movie. LOL

I dunno...until I watch it i cant say nothing...just relaying what he said. :confused:

if you watched enough HK movies you'd know. 90% of the HK movies have NO story. its all about people wanting to see the actors/actresses/singers being in the movie. Personally, i don't like seeing singers get mixed into actors/actresses careers or vice versa.
And whats in the 10% of good HK movies i like? ALL Steven Chow movies (the guy who made shaolin soccer, and kung-fu hustle) <- those aren't new to you guys, cause over here these alot of these movies (eg. Scary movie, kung pow? altho Kung-fu hustle is a relatively new "real" kung-fu movie made since Bruce Lee, because Steven chow admire Bruce Lee, so do i :D), but back 7-8 years ago when i lived in HK these non-sense comedy movies were a new "style" to hk. And another good HK movie is, Infernal Affairs, which i think Tom Cruise just bought the storyline.

PS. Please don't be dissappointed about the ID movie if it SUCKED. Its from HK, therefore the style is completely different from film makers in North america.

1985trueno
07-06-2005, 08:41 PM
Aren't you glad to know that Initial D movie was directed by the same 2 directors who made up infernal affairs? Also the script writer is the same dude as infernal affairs?

It's a change of direction towards a much simpler much "young" storyline for them to do I-D... but it's better than most other HK movies in terms of plot and rhythm.

07-06-2005, 09:30 PM
thats very interesting, i'm actually more confident on the iD movie now. Because the way HK made Infernal Affairs actually blew me away.

Man, if those cup holders you have would work in a Celica Supra, you're sitting on a gold mine. That's the only thing the old Supras don't have. I bet they'd sell like mad on celicasupra.com's forum.

I downloaded the ID movie just for ****s and giggles.... pretty gay. The racing scenes were total crap, music was horrible, and they couldn't seem to decide if they wanted to use regular speed footage, or sped up cheeseball 1960's style footage. Of course I couldn't understand a word they were saying, but that probably worked to the movie's benefit.

Thumbs down, waaaaaay down.

What an awesome piece of road! With spectators and rival cars, government provided start lights and a parking area to get some spontaneous racing going on to boot! Driving down there...... I mean watching the film makes my adrenaline pump!

enjoy!

PS I'm not in any of this, really!!! :D
