Scraped Crusaders’ Favourite Ride FITTED 2015

Judging a show usually results in a bunch of sore losers bitching about how they should have placed.  This is exactly why we choose to name our award the Scraped Crusaders Favourite Ride. Favourites are not put through the ringers of a scaled judging system.  We just pick the car that fits our mantra, or […]

FITTED Ontario Place

FITTED Ontario Place was a great show.  The organizers decided a second venue  to compliment their Brampton show.  I thought the location they chose worked out well.  Its a central location is much easier to get to than the Brampton one.   I really need to work on mixing up my photo angles.  I only realized once editing these […]

86 Day 2015 at Cyrious Garage

August, 6th,  86 Day in the car community.  The AE86 authority in Mississauga is definitely Cyrious Garage.  Having campaigned their coupe for numerous years in DMCC and FD Pro2.  Every year they open up their shop on this day for a small pop up meet.  And pretty much every 86 in the GTA showed up.

I Spent the Weekend in the Gridlife Zone

A few weeks ago I got a call from my buddy Martino from Garage Collective saying he was going to Gridlife and had an extra seat. Having no idea what, when or where Gridlife is, I obliged. Why not, what’s the worst that could happen. I love road trips, and the idea of going to […]

FITTED 2015 via Gill

There are 3 staples in our year.  Eurokracy, H20i and Fitted.  We’ve been attending FITTED for over 4 years now, going back to the second ever Stretch and Poke event at Lakeshore.  We’ve gone from casual attendees to now being able to bring 2 builds and a booth.  This year we had Danny’s 1.8T swapped […]

Cars and Coffee Season Opener

Dart, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, Corvette, Corvette.  Few things have me waking up at 7am on a Sunday.  That line up will do it. Yesterday was the first Cars and Coffee event held at Engineered Automotive.  They’re held the first Sunday of every month in Vaughn.  The early time of 8-11am seems to deter most of the riff […]

Topp Drift Throwback

The first Topp Drift event is coming up fast.  It’s scheduled for April 12th at Shannonville.  To get us in the mood for drifting again, we’re posting pics from an event last year. Steve’s E30 has been decommissioned for this season.  He’s moved on to an E46 chassis.  Link to his build, HERE.  And in […]

Scraped Crusaders at Money Gang: Winter Builds Part 2

Part 2 of our look at MONEY GANG, with Marin, Mitch and myself. Marin’s always been known as some sort of Zen drift character that people can’t get enough of. Ever since his killer 2012 CSCS season, where he literally cleaned up the competition, he’s made quite the name for himself. Not many have pushed […]

Getting Lost in the Build

You’ve just done your first drift day. You’ve had a great day and spent a lot of time setting up a mild tune in your early-mid 90s Nissan, Toyota, BMW or whatever. You got yourself some good-ass coilovers, some extra wheels, a track oriented alignment and a bunch of tires with similar compounds–the whatever’s free […]
