Honestly, it's a regional Winnipeg show that doesn't really have much weight in the grand scheme of things, so life goes on and future work/plans move forward.

Probably because there are like 9 million rocket bunny kitted frs/brz and its nothing special. Tbh i wouldn't bother entering one of these shows, I could care less about subjective judgement of random people. Your car is pretty awesome, looking forward to what comes next!

    lmao @ nothing special. Are you serious?  Seeing them pop up on IG/FB feeds doesn't make something common.

        Seriously? You got banned off Zilvia for saying the same stuff and here you are, doing it again.

        It's funny how to always talk about stuff being common cause you always see it on the internet yet hardly see it in real life. If you don't like common things how come you bought that $1700-$1900 red Maxis (not even a Zeros LOL) a few weeks ago when you said they were played out only a few months ago? Sounds like back tracking to me.




        You buy off the shelf parts that have been around for over 15 years and claim that you're doing something original. Wow, red maxis, some Japanese bolt in roll cage and a hitman steering wheel? So original my dude

        You also said that you "could care less about subjective judgement of random people" then why are you stating yours? Last time I checked your just some scrub judging a car that he hasn't even seen in person.

        I could say the only uncommon thing you have going on your car is your GOD AWFUL wheel fitment with your hella sick $700+ 50mm spacers

          its just over done is what im saying, almost every show car modified brz/86/frs has one of these kits. it looks cool, but if you walk into a car show today and there is a brz/86/frs there, its not very surprising to see a rb kit fitted.

            Alex, car is looking sick as ever. Probably my favorite  BRZ/FRS I've seen.

              Do me a favor and answer a question for me. How many large market import car shows have you attended? Be honest

                  I've followed your build since you posted in ft86club.com last year some time and its been an addicting and fun read.  I loved your car as you entered it last year voted for you too. 

                  Lets be honest tho.  RB 86's are awesome.  But to pretend that they aren't common in the online car scene and regional/national shows is just silly.

                  I'm no expert on car scene judging but I expect that the massive online presence of RB 86's has a desensitizing effect and the bunny no longer has the impact it once did. 

                  I don't know how active you are on 86 forums but anything bunny related nowdays gets boo'd right out the door.  So I would have to agree that ONLINE the bunny is overplayed, but we don't live online do we.  Seeing the reactions of every day people when they see the car is all you need to know your driving something special.  But I wouldn't expect a car show judge to show that same enthusiasm after seeing them for 4 years.  My .02

                      I actually agree. IG/FB have completely changed the way people view cars. We live in a very small market and a lot of things you see on JDMGram don't exist here, so I honestly don't think anything could be considered "played out" or "common" in our province. Hearing that there are "9 million" others when in reality there are two (V1 and a V2) is agitating. Online though, I would agree that it doesn't take much effort to find a picture of one. In my opinion, the parts don't buy a free pass into recognition, it all comes down to how it's been executed.

                        Yeah man 100%.  I would say more than half the bunnies out there online are botched and almost give the kit a bad name in some places.  Yours really is something special and I hope one day I get to see it in person.

                        I might bring mine down to Winnipeg one day if the roads don't total it before I get there.  (Might even loop down into the states just to find a decent road there lol).

                        I went straight Miura-san inspired and didn't change too much else on the outside.

                            Haha oh god I can't tell you how many times I stared at your old build with the RS05's.  It was the perfect wheel for the build it brought tears to my eyes.

                            10.5 +15 face R(deep conc) and 10.0 +22 face R in front too.

                                      Oh damn, why the sale?

                                      I might be interested in a few items.  The hood comes to mind off the top of my head.
