Green and white combination for HT81S?

Green and white combination is something new for HT81S, the result aren't that bad and it does look interesting. This HT81S from Japan do give a great vibe at every angle. I personally feel it is a great job on the exterior and it does turn head.
What do you think about this color scheme ? Match with a red mud flap too ?

Whats behind those arches ?

Have you every wonder what happening behind the wheel arches ? All HT81S comes with additional bodykit to make the car wider and look better, however those plastic arches is an extension to the steel body.
On average most of the HT81S are around 10 years olds so what do you think happened to the paint behind those arches ? The photo above show what happening, so what do you think ?
Anyway, the picture do not belong to me, just borrow from a fellow HT81S owner in twitter.

BCrews Tuned Car for Sale

Yesterday while browsing the internet for something special and nice about HT81S, I bump into a HT81S for sale via tradecarview Japan website.
What really attract me to this listing is the price, normally for a typical HT81S, they are selling around USD4,000 but this was listed at a price double that near USD9,000. That is expensive for a 13 year old car in Japan.
Then I look at it more and the more I look at it, it does look similar to BCrews tuned car. I wonder whether this is their company demo car, there are a lot of similarity. The roll cage, intake kit and exhaust.
Bcrews tuned HT81S does give a very balance car, their tuning are not too much on the engine and horsepower but they further enhance the advantages of HT81S which is lightweight, response and manoeuvrability. They done a lot of customs, engine parts, intake parts, suspension, reinforcement parts too. 

Bcrews HT81S also been feature in HyperRev magazine too. If you have the money to buy this car, the parts somehow might justify the price but for me it is still a bit too expensive.

TM-Square Carbon Plug Cover

TM-Square had launch a plug cover for ZC31S which look neat and the price is reasonable too. Why it is reasonable is the design and the material used are carbon fiber on the top and the internal are using FRP for strength.
Retail price are at JPY14,000 and you can buy it online for price less than that…

Personally I like this design a lot and I would swap the aluminium piece on the front with my custom design logo and signature….

Small wing below the rear mirror

This is a simple mod on the rear door, additional wing below the rear mirror.  Personally I do not fancy this design, but it doesn't mean it look bad.

Flipped HT81S

I do not wish to see something happened to a HT81S but we can't avoid accident. This collection of photograph was from a Japanese owner via his twitter account. I downloaded this before and think I can share this.
It is heart breaking to know another HT81S will be out of the road and would like to advice all to be careful on the road.
I myself had done a lot of stupid stuff with HT81S many years ago and luckily the worst is a spin on the interchange with a damage front bumper.
Anyway, stay safe and enjoy HT81S!

Finally, HT81S feature in the local Magazine review, the lucky owner Jerry got his car review by Hypertune Malaysia. The review is not long but it does give some exposure and brief details of HT81S.
The review was done in Bahasa Malaysia and for those who can't read it, you can always google translate it.
Some mod done on the light tuned yellow HT81S include reinforcement bar at the engine bay and the c pillar, exhaust, cooling,brake, rims and intake. Interior kept original and minor mod on the front bumper.

Nice miniature Ignis JWRC photo

The photo are some very nice miniature photo shoot using and Iphone and look amazing. One of the complain is the scale of the car in relation to the background is a bit off.
The car is the Ignis Super 1600 5 door version and is a euro spec, not the HT81S model used in the early days of JWRC campaign.
I wish to get hold one of the miniature JWRC model but the cost is still high especially with the forex rate and the shipping cost. Hope that the price will drop further in the future and I can get one as a display in my room.
Since I do not know what language used and the origin of the website, I do hope someone can help me on that part and post it in the comment section. Great job to the website owner and photo owner!
