Streetpower 2016

As with every big event, it always starts with a small pre-meet for everybody who got up on time.
This year our group was even bigger with ofcourse Alex being late…
Special addition to our group was a friend from Lex with the stance coupe. He brought Lars who was kind enough to take pictures throughout the day.

So at the local gasstation near Circuit Zandvoort, you can imagine that we were not the only cars to stop before attending the event.
This UK civic was competing in the dragracing shootout due to the markings on his window.

Also Laurens had his Integra Type-r MOT’d and roadlegal again for 2 weeks and was a last minute entry to our group. Next to the repaint and some suspension upgrades, the car was back on the road without a few of new parts, which will be shown on Hondafest.

Laurens his co-passenger Thom Kwerreveld also shot some great footage and will be writing for San-toso this year.
Next to the stand with our cars, some of us were also competing in the dragracing event helt on saturday an sunday morning.
In the picture below you can see Calvin having some late-minute discussion with the rest.

Calvin entered with his B18 Turbo Coupe, Sidney ran his B18 all-motor civic coup and Lex was running his little DOCH D-series ED Hatch.

Next to our own cars, we also love to see the other cars people bring to race. One that stood out was this Toyota Corolla station, all caged’up with lexan windows. And also the little Toyota Glaza aka pocketrockets were fun to see racing.

The thing we have been seeing for the last couple of years is STANCE. Running camber with deep wheels used to look like a thing for the bigger lexus models but Civics are getting the hang of it like this yellow EK hatch and our own Lex with his “Blackprince”  Coupe with 10J wheels on the back.

For those who have missed 100% tuning last october, might have missed that our friendly belgium neighbours have a Liberty Walk kitted Nissan GTR, which looked way better in the bright sunlight from last sunday.

Ofcourse when you talk Nissan, you cannot love Jim his R33 GTR with upgraded brakes and Volk Racing Ce28N wheels. Jim again enjoyed him on the track the day before. Also 2 jewels of Datsun cars were present by the Kamikaze Speedshop.

Due the large amount of the pictures that Lars took, we won’t keep you from work any longer and continue our review of Automaxx Streetpower in the next week. Again, Thank you Lars for providing us with footage.

The Coupe Brothers

Before we start with the meetings from last weekend, We would like to introduce the Coup Brothers.

Lex and Calvin, both are long time friends & supporters of San-Toso. It all started a couple of years ago, Lex spotted this magnificent Civic Coup at the local dealership and his dad was kind enough to buy it.
So his dad drove around in the coup and when Lex got his drivers license, he could buy the car for a nice fee and its was ready to rock on some Lenso D1 wheels.

Calvin started with a VW Polo and stepped up his game towards an E36 BMW. Being a car mechanic is an easy way to the carscene and started to “Stance” the hell out of the car.
Unfortunately our little country has insane gas prices and Calvin started looking for a different car, This way he became the owner of a nice civic coup.

Both of the guys drive the D16Y7 engine with a few small modifications. Also they started to look for different wheels. Calvin wanted a set which you usually don’t see on any Honda.
So he got himself a set of Borbet A wheels, A Daiyama coilover set and some Skunk2 LCA’s. Lex on the otherhand started his first year with just a set of wheels and didn’t care about the rest.

During the breakup with his girlfriend, Lex decided it was time to focus on other things. The car scene, as already stated in “The Pursuit of Function”  Its becomes everything…
Lex focussed on the things he liked without giving a damn about the opinions of others. He scored a set of XXR 02 ET0 wheels which caused the wheels to become wider than the car.
Ignoring any advice for a camberkit and getting pulled over by the police every weekend, it was time to score a camberkit for the front and the back.

Calvin wanted to have some more options in the civic, like he was used to in the beemer. So it was time for those nice little “EK9” touch-up parts. A cupholder and shiftbooth.
After rocking no lip for the first couple of months, His mind was set on a “Mugen”  bumper lip to complete the outside look of the car.

Lex went all out and got introduced into the Eurochapter of Team Hazardouz. spending last summer with the rest of the crew chillin at the garage or during one of the local meetings in Holland. A few weeks ago, Elio and Alex had the time to capture these machines for the camera and introduce the cars to the rest of the world.
