Claire's MK2 MR2

If you saw a fire damaged, old Japanese car in a scrap yard, you’d leave it there wouldn’t you? Well not Claire. Purchased 12 years ago, it’s been through a few changes since she bought it. First up, an olive green paint job. They had a military vehicle at the time (who doesn’t?), so the paint was really cheap and gave the car a unique (for the time being) look. Unfortunately, someone decided to drive into the car, using the (rather poor) excuse of “you were driving past a bush.” As if that’s some kind of excuse to not use...

Lindsay's MK1 MX5

We love a MX5 here at Violent running. Lindsay’s is no exception. Sporting fresh Audi mythos black paint and a Duce kit From Firefly speed shop, this car looks the part! Currently with a stock 1.8, we are assured a turbo is coming this winter, most of the work on this car has gone into the driving experience as well as the aesthetics. Purchased to be her first drift car after seeing Ryan Asquith drifting one on YouTube, she set about finding one before knowing if they were any good or not. She sent Ryan a message to ask, but...

Simon's Supercharged MK2 MX5

Simon's Supercharged MK2 MX5

 This week, we’re looking at Simon’s MK2 MX5. Powered by a M65 supercharger with a 59mm reduction pulley, 14psi and a 1.8 engine. Simon is yet to get it on a dyno, as it is a freshly built car, but he’s hoping to get around the 200-220bhp mark. Simon purchased the car as a weekend toy after he sold his previous drift car. Although, we all know MX5s make fantastic cars to drift in. He always knew these little cars were fantastic fun in stock trim, but started seeing others had turbo’d and supercharged theirs before spotting a supercharger...

Over lockdown Connor took a built a neglected daily driver and built this SR20DET powered weekend toy. Lock down has given us all a lot of time to work on our project and for Connor to produce this in 5 months is an awesome effort. All the work has been carried out by Connor himself on his drive. This is the kind of home build we can get behind. So what's been done to it? Well:  Bc racing coilovers Polly bushed suspension M3 anti roll bars. Azev 5 spoke 17" wheels Over arches rears.

Dave's Civic FN2 Type R

Here is Dave's Bagged FN2 type R Champ white edition. He picked it up a year and a half ago whilst he was on stand with us at Yakushi Show. Is there any bigger flex than arriving at a show in one car, disappearing and returning with your new ride?  Since then, he blew up one engine after the previous owner getting some rocker cover paint in it. Whilst it was sitting around he found some cheap bags, jumped in the daily and drove a 7 hour round trip to get them, got home, and put them straight on. A couple of months later,...
