2013 Eibach Meet by LumDigital (Updated)


2013.0417 Updated: According to Clint, who was at the factory tour, Eibach said that they do in-house production as much as possible. This is a key difference than others, that the parts are built with high quality and precision and durability here in the US.  And the tight precision control as well as the abilities to produce part shapes that are difficult to manufacturing, set them apart from other manufacturers or import companies.We can see the success formula in this great company!

cars.wheelsandheelsmag.com / Los Angeles, CA (photo by Clinton, Text by Py) - Our true car-passionate Clinton Lum, right after two long days of gruesome Formula Drift event coverage, went to the Eibach car meet and had a cool factory tour,  Eibach is well known for their professional grade springs as well as anti-roll kits.  This meet was a great opportunity to see how the products are actually made and meet other Eiback enthusiasts.


To really understand the great products from Eibach, Clint did a factory tour and was shown how the great products are made, including the shock springs, and others.  The quality control  room and shops also showed how the product were well tested and manufactured, including their PRO KIT, PRO-PLUS, and other PRO series products.



 
Coming back to the awesome cars, there were several cool ones at the parking lot with the product.  Scion's FR-S seems to be a favor these days.  

There will be more Eibach meets coming up, including the May 19, 2013, Eibach Honda meet at Lake Elsinore, CA.  Awesome!

2013 Formula Drift Round 1 Long Beach Day 1 Quick View #formuladrift #drifting


wheelsandheelsmag.com / Long Beach, CA (Py) - We want to bring you the first hand pictures of the Formula Drift Round 1 Long Beach event.  The Friday opened with an overcast, but when the practice run started, the clouds got burned out, and the sky is replaced with the smoke coming from the tires of the fierce FD drifting competitors trying out the course.



This year is the 10th anniversary of Formula Drift, and there are a lot of new changes brought to the cars, the competition, and the event.  The first thing you may or may not notice is the look of the driver decal.  They are smaller than the past big square and have a subtlety in them.  However, if you blur  your camera a bit, then sure you will miss the name and the number or sometimes the country flag.  But we are sure that the true fans know their beloved drivers and cars by heart already.



Then the competition rules are also different.  The new scoring system makes today's competition even more important.  Check out the Formula Drift web site for more information [ext link].







There are also new entries of cars, including the FR-S's for Ryan Tuerck and Tony Angelos.  This adds more diverse flavors to the races and see how they fare compared to others.


 

We look forward to tomorrow's main competitions and see who will come out the top and which car is the best!  Stay tuned!

Los Angeles, CA (W&HM) - The art works of some of the cars are literally artworks.  Some of them are a show of graphic design.  Then some of them are cool image transfers.  All of these make the DUB Show LA a wonderful place not only for the cool metals, but also for the art appreciation.  It's definitely a both-sides brain stimulation environment.
