clean is still stylish

My best friend's EVO IX. Everything on it is top notch. Nothing is over done but everything is done perfect. Still more to come, but it sits nicely right now. Advan, SUN, Garage HRS, Ralliart... just to name a few brands that he's rockin.

Future-Forward design for the world you inhabit !!!

Not tuning related.. but I thought this was interesting and need to be shared!!!

Travel Lodge Hotel Made From Shipping Containers
By Adrianne Jefferies
Travelodge recently opened a hotel in Uxbridge, England that is constructed entirely from prefabricated shipping containers. The completed design uses eighty-six containers of various sizes that were retrofitted into bedrooms and bolted together onsite. The exterior has been clad and fitted with windows, thus converting the assemblage into a seamless 120-bedroom hotel. Verbus Systems estimates that the structure’s prefab composition saved the hotel chain more than half a million pounds and at least 10 weeks of construction.

Verbus Systems claims that the hotel’s modular construction makes its construction 40-60% quicker than traditional building methods, plus it doesn’t require complicated construction processes or specialized labor, which helps to reduce cost. They also quote a 70% reduction in on-site waste. The interiors are indistinguishable from other Travelodge hotels, and after construction, the exterior betrays nothing.

Travelodge plans to follow up with a 307-room version at Heathrow. They expect to save up to 10 million pounds (18.6 million dollars) a year on hotel development by using this new method.

Subiefest 2008

The event was a blast! From the general gathering of subarus to the show car to the amazingly well built track beasts. There was also a Porsche track day and a drift session going on at the other tracks at Willow Springs that same day.
