Inside T.R.A Kyoto aka Rocket Bunny

When for first time I found myself looking for TRA Kyoto I was already excited. Just the pleasure of finding the workshop in the streets of UJI was amazing. TRA Kyoto is that kind of place you think that don’t really exist. Is just on the internet and is not the real life.

After searching internet at yahoo and some other japanese place I did get the address, then was just google how to go.

I know that this is not the kind of post you expect about TRA Kyoto. You expected rocket bunnies all around, but this post is something more spiritual. Here in rthirtytwotaka we love the classic images and classic stickers and signs, so I decided that the first post will be about showing something more about TRA Kyoto.

Like almost half of Japan, the mess is like the rule number one. Here we have an scale model of the most recent Miura-san Scion FRS. Yes Scion, as the car was imported from the US, more specifically straight from Santa Monica.

The well known Rocket Bunny PS13 also in scale model version.

As I am spanish born, this really surprised me. Old school Rallies from Mexico all them wrote in Spanish. Really amazing stuff inside the office.

Do you have a letter to Miura San? Post box can’t confused you, If you find this, you are already visiting TRA Kyoto, and if you are here you are really excited.

More classic images and signs, Miura San has a great taste and he is a great american culture lover as we can see.

Here as a result of many many bumper cuts everything is plenty of white dust. But for I don’t now the reason is like the only way it can be. If weren’t like that then this would be another shop but not TRA Kyoto.

The collection of T-shirt and Jackets is awesome, some were never used yet, maybe waiting the next Kanjo Battle in Osaka. The skate was just as cool as the rest of the stuff inside the office. There is an strange feeling when you sit down together to Miura San. Like you and the Master teaching you and showing you all the stuff around. Such a great feeling.

I promise you next post will have many Rocket Bunny cars and some other cool things that Miura San showed to rthirtytwotaka. Now I just wait to find one of our sticker in the next project, which of course I have seen but is really confidential. See you soon.

Bee*Racing 86/FRS/BRZ

DSC_0947

So I lied, there is one last car I want to show you guys that I shot at Tokyo Auto Salon. This is the crazy Bee*R “FR-S”. The reason I use quotation marks is because a lot of people don’t know that this car started it’s life actually as a Subaru BRZ, not a Toyota 86. I’m not sure why they rebadged it, but they’re both the same car anyways.

Scion Racing Debuts FR-S Race Car

Scion unveiled its Scion Racing/GReddy FR-S race car during a press conference at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The FR-S will be competing in the 2012 Formula DRIFT series with veteran driver Ken Gushi behind the wheel.

The 600-horsepower FR-S race car is the result of a collaboration between Scion Racing and GReddy, a performance-products company that has been involved with Toyota and racing for over twenty years.

The race car is inspired by the 2013 Scion FR-S, a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car that will go on sale in the spring of 2012. The high-performance coupe is the fifth model to join the Scion family.

2010 Trends part II

The last 2009 year is gone. Was one of the better years for creativity, iniciative and over anything try to get new styles.

The hellaflush was growing up very quick last year, as well as, restorations in the “new old classic” like Civic EF and CRX.

Honda world will see more and more restorations in Civic’s to get them completely OEM look, with OEM colours and I think using only quality rims, being BBS and RAYS almost the best choice for next year.

The one who decide swap his Honda will fit more K20 and J-series engine, the support is growing up and every time will be easy find plug and play engine mounts and wirings to swap J-series engines.

Hellaflush will be very very popular in 2010. Not only in US, even being Australia and Europe with HF love. More deep rims, insane camber with colourful rims will be present in HF.

Stickers, roof racks will be the same. Cars will be even more clean than ever with new colours over the OEM colours and stickers in bumpers, bonnets or trunks will increase popularity for next year.

This is my prediction, but I wish to be wrong and get more and more trends for next year. And see who will be more original being VW guys, BMW or Honda who develop new trends.

The new cool car this 2010 is going to be the S2000 and G35. I forget the role for new Hyundai Genesis…We are going to see many of those this year.

Old school is the next…and more old school is coming…Old Toyota and Datsun cars will increase in popularity being Cressida and AE86 even more populars. More people will try to get cheap 240Z and 510…they are almost finish… Hurry up.
