STOMPed and Lovin’ It!

Image sourced from Stomponline Mom, what’s ‘STOMP’? If it makes you think of screaming, running kids making lots of incoherent noise, you are half right. Well, not quite. It is far from incoherent, and far from being just ‘noise’. So what exactly is STOMP? I’d call it a buffet of music, rhythm and dance, theatre […]...More

The iPod. Nano-fied. I want.

I have to hand it to Apple Computer. They have this gift. The gift that makes you want things. This uncanny ability to spur interest. Desire. From the very depths of your inner soul, your gut, your emotions. If you think Apple does just computers, hah!, think again. They are way beyond that. How about […]...More

Supercharged Kleemann-Proton 1.8 class engine in the works?

According to Utusan Malaysia Online, this seems to be the case, as far-fetched and unverified as it is. Kleemann, much like Brabus and AMG, is an exclusive aftermarket tuner specialising in the design and manufacture of exclusive tuning and styling solutions for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. Industry sources envisaged that the Satria Replacement Model (SRM) will house […]...More

MIVEC RS

Was scrummaging the net looking for info on MIVEC gearboxes and stumbled on a wealth of information, thanks to the NZ-based MIVEC site, one with quite a bit of Malaysian presence. I found info on the MIVEC RS and some detailed specs. Impressive to say the least. Power rating is 175bhp at the flywheel....More

Me. Designer, prostitute.

My endeavours into motorsports and being an absolute car freak has left me broke. Before I sell my youthful body to the horny, desperate public, I am generously offering graphic design/web/multimedia and coffee-making services in exchange for a much-needed MIVEC LSD gearbox. Currently running a Powerzone LSD kit with the standard F5M22 1.8 gearbox, but […]...More

Grrr....More

Down, but not out!

It was no consolation, I tell you, even after Powerzone managed to clock some impressive times for the century sprint with my SR3 on Saturday. Sirazul of Powerzone was rather delighted with the numbers – quickest being 7.25s, from the previous 8.56s some months back. Way back when it was still virginal, stock with cat […]...More
