Bigger, stronger, faster, louder: this is the only way that we can describe last weekend’s fifth chapter of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack in Coalinga, California. One sold-out event, one half mile, two days, and eighty degrees in the middle of the desert. Completely booked Best Western. Two hundred drivers. Twenty-two world-class sponsors. Seven hundred spectators. Fifty media personnel. An average of fourteen hundred horsepower. One hundred seventy mph average trap speeds, and one three-way twerk team. Records were broken, engines were blown, heads were lifted, and GTRs were flipped. This is the event known as Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack. This is an event you cannot miss.
What started out as an idea, gradually spiraled into something amazing. We picked a set of locations and assembled our small team of automotive photographers and videographers known as #TeamRevv and set out on an adventure. From Los Angeles to San Diego and finally to Las Vegas, we documented our experience along the way. This is the story behind what went down at the first of many ModLife Tours. The people we met, the cars we shot and the places we went.
With a bit of a lull as we wait for a few parts to show up for Project BRZ, we wanted to give a little extra insight into some of the processes employed by our partners during the build of the car. In this case, we got some great details on what SCR Performance does during the teardown and rebuild of an engine, specifically in regard to their experience with the Subaru EJ-series engines, which heavily applies to the FA20 / 4U-GSE.
It all started out as a simple idea; an idea that would spiral into something amazing. We picked a set of locations that were easily accessible, assembled a small team of automotive photographers and videographers known as #TeamRevv, and set out for an adventure. What was originally an idea focused on capturing original, exclusive and exceptional content has morphed into something more along the lines of a social experiment. An experiment where the subjects aren’t just highly modified cars, but also the personalities, the locations, the crews, the meets, the nightlife and the car culture at large. The way we capture this experiment is what makes it unique. The photography and film that allows us to pass on our experiences. Welcome to the first #ModLife Tour. The first of many.
