I could just post this picture and not a word more.
I could be happy with that in itself as a successful blog post.
Nothing in the car world makes me more happy at this very moment than looking at the fenders of these two FD3S from this profile. Just take 20 seconds and stare at the profile of these cars. And yes, I’m avoiding using the lately far too overplayed term that so appropriately would fit this situation visually…because these cars are not designed for the current usage of the “s” word, they are designed for the “r” word. Racing.
Why is it that whenever a car in Japan has the infamous Mid Night crew sticker on it that I’m blown away. Never mind, I know the answer. It is because everyone in that crew in Japan are the real deal and build highly functional maximum velocity cars. Mid Night is a tight crew of top speed enthusiasts with cars that are not designed and intended to simply park hard. Ab Flug happens to be very much involved with Mid Night, so this Ab Flug FD3S is part of the crew.
And of course I need to share one more amazing picture too…

EDITED – After some insightful and thoughtful comments I made light edits to this post to keep with the essence of the original post but to not endorse activities that could endanger people. I want this blog to represent the love of this lifestyle, but I’ll shut up and self edit when I misspeak and indirectly promote something that might endanger others. What we do with our cars may be dangerous at times, that’s a given. Endangering ourselves is a risk that we each have a various degree of appetite for. For example, even in controlled environments, taking our cars to the track poses some moderate dangers…however endangering ourselves voluntarily is different from endangering others involuntarily. I want nothing to do with encouraging anyone to put innocent people in exposure with our own adrenaline rush, that is not what I want to promote here, hence the edit. Those of us who live this lifestyle and appreciate driving our cars hard should do just that, but lets try to limit the health risk of this (at times dangerous hobby) to ourselves. That also means that racing or driving exceedingly near or at our limits with friends or loved ones in the car is also a risky move that should be avoided as well. I’m no saint with this stuff, but I know very well that I don’t want to contribute to innocent people getting hurt and if anything I’d like to help so that less people get hurt by the love of motorsports and this racing/car culture that we all represent.
