    Misconception

    Post  Nemesis on Tue Aug 03, 2010 3:52 pm

    Well apologies to whoever read my message and mistook it as me knocking mike. What I meant was that he was like 1 of I think like 5 winners for his class, out of 16 total in his class and he probably was the best out of those even tho there is no way of telling for sure. People flocked to his car as always and I even commented to Mike about all the cameras around his car and we had a laugh together.

    Whoever misconceived the intentions of "not remotely best of show" as that I was bombing on him is wrong, I only meant that there were some absolute nasty cars and yeah his car is badass, but were talking about cars with every inch of paint airbrushed and completely modified and chromed engine bays and such. Those who know car shows well understand what I meant by it and whoever read that and was offended just doesnt know me and doesnt get how I am but look at it this way, if my statement came off as foul to those who know me they would have let me know especially Kurai.

    Food for thought here is that when everyone wanted to leave saturday night, myself included, I was the one who walked across the damn place with Mike trying to find a judge with him to settle his discrepancy on my fucked up ankle after a whole day of walking, I was the one making sure I'm right behind him in the convoy most of the time, and he is not only a close friend but my boss...I'm obviously not going to bomb on him, which is why I not only congratulated him but also pointed out how he always wins.

    Yes Eric there will be some competition when you get back and depending on the show we will most likely be in different classes because my car was judged in the mid/full size CUSTOM Toyota Sedan class at HIN while the AE86 was in the Compact Toyota Coupe class in which the Celica was in as well. So all in all we both would of took home top spots for our classes. There were NO SECOND place spots. Just Winners. Now the other shows like Extreme Summer Nationals this Saturday we would of been going against eachother. I beat out 2 very nice looking Supra's last year which are a part of Pacman's crew Street Innovationz. Both Supra's was at the HIN show that just past and didn't win an award. So if you was here ERog you would have 1st, me 2nd and then someone else for 3rd. Or I would have 1st, you 2nd and so fourth and so on. As long as we sweep like we did in ATL Motorsports Nationals is all that matters to me. Also whether its 1st,2nd or 3rd as long as you bring home a trophy then you are a winner. One thing I do believe we all need to do is we need to work as a group on EACHOTHERS cars so that way we can get all of our cars up to the same standard so we ALL can have badass cars and can start taking home some cash. Street Innovationz took home $1000 from HIN because they had 17 members which is $500 and they had the top 5 quality cars out of all the clubs which adds another $500. Eric your car is DONE even though you still want to add more to it in which I don't see why. Your trunk is gorgeous, engine phenominal, inside looks great, paint and decals poppin, hood is on fire and body kit fits well. You add anything else and you will be just making your car that much more slower from all the weight you have already. As for me my trunk is no where near done. Yes I have a floor that shoots lightning through it when my base hits but I have a lot of imperfections due to driving it and lack of money to finish what I started. My manifold has 2 brand new cracks in it, I have a partial tune due to loosing it when my batt died at a show and I need a new front bumper cause mine is now cracked due to avoiding an accident. Pacman's team has 3 painters, 4 mechanics, 6 electrical installers and 3 wheel guys. They work on each car with atleast 3-4 people working on one car at a time. We need to do the same instead of working alone on our cars which takes longer time to get to a finishing show car point. Eric your car is BEYOND show car status. Anything else and you will be flying your car to space. We need to help Nicole finish her car, Christopher Muir finish his body work and paint, Andy finish his lighting and NOS purge setup, Mike Adler get an engine and install it in his Silvia and anyone else who needs help. With this being said we need a location to do all of this. I say at each person's place of residence unless they don't have a garage. Me work on my car out of my gargage, Andy out of his, and for people who don't have a garage or yard can work at one of the members houses as long as that member don't mind. I wrote Steph and havent heard back from her on facebook. Do anyone over there still talk to her? I want to know how she is doing and want to make sure she is not leaving the RPM family.

    lol i love giving you a hard time bro lol, Yeah we are a team as always and you know my feelings on the whole trophies thing there are just trophies.
    Damn are u serious two more cracks!! we need to get you to a tubular style manifold that log style just isnt cutting it...but yeah we def need to come together on are whips I got a few ideas in mind that you might wanna get on board with as well long as there is none of that "biting" talk lol tongue
    But damn thats alot of classes but still cool as hell motivates more ppl to enter and thats good for all.

    But yeah just giving you a hard time Mike lol tongue I run some ideas I have been playing with by you when i get there in a few days see what you think...more performance oriented things but visual as well. Cool

    I know Eric and thanks Lady Racer. Nemesis the cars you are talking about are what we call "Trailer Queens" because they never are driven. They go from a trailer to a show back up onto a trailer. If you seen my car a year ago when my paint, bodykit, engine brand new and everything perfect you would of been like DAMN that car looks HOTT plus its driven. Eric will tell you if we all never drove our cars and carted them to shows there would be no dirt anywhere on them like the cars we seen. For instance. That Camaro was by far the sickest car there but I bet both my nuts and the sack that he didn't drive that car to the show. He loaded it up onto a trailer or better yet in a trailer and drove it here. Thats what makes our cars that much more appreciated. We drove 3 in a half hours through bugs, weather and dirt and still I had it lookin show room clean enough to win at the 2nd largest car show in the country behind SEMA. That should count for something in my book.

    yeah i def got more respect for a car that is driven all the time vs a trailer queen or show cart lol, they should have their own class like MSN where they had that show/shop class that was for u guessed it show/shop cars that was all they were built for.
    But either way no hate and def congrats to Mike Cool
    You guys will see with time like me and mike have that it just depends on the show and the judges one year you make take 1st then the next not even place with the same level of competition its just how it rolls not a big deal.
    but see you guys in a couple days im rolling to manifest in a few minutes Very Happy

    they had me enter nd mike suggested vw euro unfinished due to the car having some new ideas being drawn up so I did and didn't place. I was disappointed but couldn't be mad because some of those vw out there where on a whole other level from me. You could tell even the unfinished ones those drivers had money. So I look at it this way now I know what to do nd what needs to be done. There where 29 in that class and 1 out of every 5 won. Like I said I was alittle sad but there is always next year.
