Glory Days

I’m glad I can look back at my glory days and be happy that I never tracked my car because the streets is where my heart is at. I am also happy that I don’t do that shit no more, but don’t get it twisted, that past life is what motivates me til this very second and gives me pure nostalgia every time I think about it.

“Does street racing count?” Yup! In my case it’s Street Running. Even the few auto cross events I’ve attended, I was just teasing myself. Who the fuck was I foolin!? I was always dreaming of running in the streets! 😁👹
Mmhmm. I passed you on this wheel and tire set up. I could of easily ran a Toyo R888 but as my brother Hex would say “those are cheater tires” RUN WHAT YOU GOT.

It doesn’t matter if it’s Wangan Running or Kanjo Running, it’s all Roulette Running at the end of the day. Whether it’s Osaka or Tokyo (or the streets of Sacramento) it’s all the same. The thrill of running is different than an organized race event. Only the ones who do it and have done it can relate. I had nothing to prove back then and I still have nothing to prove now. Long live the glory days.✌️

Wangan Thoughts

One thing I really like about Wangan Midnight is the realistic view of COST. These people in the manga/anime (and in real life) drop shit loads of money into their builds to gain every drop of horsepower. Many worked two jobs, in the story one character is a Doctor. Some lost friends and family all for their build. Something to keep in mind. Cuz in real life some fake the funk and really have a sugar momma or daddy to support their wants (along with rich parents). Remember nothing is more respectful than the “broke speed hungry kid” that doesn’t need justification to fit in nor does he care about fitting in. Especially if that person has skills that reigns supreme over those clout chasers. For that Roulette Runners never fall into the category of clout…! ✌️

Total Mess

Abandoned and a total mess. Like a temple turned into a fox den.

“As with all TRA cars, underneath the hood, the engine bay is a dirty mess. This is all part of the Mad Max street style that Miura grasps so well.”
Sometimes you may find random shit underneath the hood. Seen here. Hidden melee weapon?

If it ain’t ghetto it ain’t KANJO

“No lift? That’s ok, I’ll find another way.” That’s kanjo.
Painting the car outside? Yup that’s kanjyo.
With a roller too? Yup that’s kanjyo!
Rigging up your own device to hide your plate? Yup that’s kanjo.
Inside a mess? Yup that’s KANJO.
Battered and bruised but still running it? Yup that’s KANJYO!!!

And I wouldn’t have it any other way. 💪✌️🫡 #kanjo #kanjyo

How Tuned Are You?

Pick your class: Tune – Full Tune – Maximum Tune

The Running Temple’s class is Tuned. Which is sometimes called “light-tune” or “mild-tune” with more room for gains. Mods may include an upgraded/chipped ECU or a stand alone with bolt ons. Perfect for short range fighters.

Many Kanjozoku cars are in this class.
Kanjozoku’s doing what they do best… causing HAVOC. 👹

An example of Full Tune:

A prerequisite for Wangan Runners is a full tuned vehicle. Long hours on the dyno fine tuning to get optimal horse power gains. These long range fighters mean business.

Maximum tune vehicles have reached their full potential and there is no more room for gains. These are the monsters of the concrete jungle. 👹😈👺

No matter what class you’re in, if you’re into the car culture, it all started with you being a speed fanatic and the journey to feed your addiction…! ✌️
