A Trip To Penang With The Mitsubishi ASX

I recently had the chance to try out the new Crossover from Mitsubishi known as the ASX (Active Smart X-over), it’s a new genre of car which is becoming very popular. It has the utility of an SUV but the driving characteristics of a sedan. It’s quite a fierce looking car and very well specced […]

Proton Takes 2nd In APRC Manufacturers Championship

I like motorsports, that’s just how it is. I’m not a huge fan of F1, I kind of lost interest during the Schumacher days when there was no point watching because you knew who was going to win. I’ve always been a bigger fan of Rally! It’s more exciting, more dangerous, technically more challenging to […]

The Johnnie Walker Pit Crew Experience At Sepang International Circuit

I had quite the weekend on August 27th/28th. It started out extremely early…rather too early for my liking – in fact I still consider it the middle of the night waking up at 6.15am..it wasn’t even light yet! This was due to the fact Johnnie Walker, the world’s number one selling Scotch whisky gave 48 […]

Project Airtrek — The First Service – Part 2

After the first major 2-part service I thought I’d be all good, after spending RM6100…I thought I’d be ready to go! But no, the car was smooth and powerful now but the idle was very lumpy, there was jerking during WOT (wide open throttle) and it STILL kept stalling. This was the part where things […]

The Inagural Mini Driver Training in Malaysia!

And yes I was there, wuwu so lucky being an over-privileged and under-deserving blogger. Can’t really blog properly right now because my brain isn’t really functioning after 2 mornings waking up before 8am and the long World Cup stretch…I think I have a massive sleep debt and I feel like fainting now. It’s all good […]

Project Airtrek – The First Service AKA The Wallet Destroyer

So I’d got my car and as the tyres were almost bald and seriously hardened, I got those changed first thing as a priority. After that came time for the first major service, this is an important thing to do when you buy a second hand car – even if it has a ‘full service […]

The New Toyota Vios Launch (2010 Facelift)

As you’d know if you’d read my blog for some time, I’m quite a petrolhead – I love cars, racing, motorsports and anything related. One car I’ve always admired is the Vios, for the price you pay you get a hell of a lot of motor vehicle! The good news for Vios fans is that […]

I Drove An Aston Martin V8 Vantage In Malaysia!

And no, it wasn’t in my dreams! I’ve always been a huge lover of Aston Martin, a proper homegrown British luxury car marque. Although it’s debatable if Aston is still really British or not (partially Kuwaiti owned now). The actual car I fell in love with was the Aston Martin Virage Volante convertible. Anyway a […]

Project Airtrek – A Day At The Dynojet Dyno

A few Sundays ago a bunch of us headed down to Sunway to do some dyno runs with a friend of ours who was doing some dyno tuning on his Evo 6.5 Tommi Makinen Edition (still considered one of the most powerful evos ever made). I was gonna do some dyno tuning too, but due […]
