AMS GT-R ALPHA 12 Package

Holy shit balls, the crew at AMS are at it again, but this time with their Alpha 12 package for the Nissan GT-R

From Nagtroc

"Over the past few weeks we have been doing some ALPHA 12 testing on Tim Sanders GT-R at his request. The man REALLY likes power lol.

The major changes from the 10 to the 12 are the engine and the turbo kit itself. Tim's car is now fitted with an AMS ALPHA 4.0 big bore engine and ALPHA 12 Turbo kit. The combination has proved to be pretty potent only spooling 150 rpm later than the ALPHA 10 package. The power....well it's surprising even us. This is just preliminary testing on MS109E unleaded race gas. We also kept the RPM's a little lower than we normally do to see how the kit is responding.

The result was an astonishing 1118WHP and 884 ft/lbs of Torque!

The scary thing is this kit is far from being maxed out. We have some more tuning and some more tricks up our sleeve but I think this is quite possibly the baddest power package for the GT-R YET!" -Eric Gaudi

Interview With Mike York(Skater and Family Man)

Chrome Ball caught up with Mike York, a long time skater, a cool ass friend, and a down to Earth cat. It's always a pleasure to be around him and his family. Check out the interview, it's a good read.

"First things first, are you still considered the official skateboarder of the hyphy movement?

Nah, that movement has kinda died out. I was happy about it at the time because it was a way for everyone to just go crazy and it was accepted. Fools weren’t trippin’ on you for having a good time and not trying to act all macho gangster. But whatever… that was more of a joke anyway. Now I’m a dad so I’m more part of the Yo Gabba Gabba movement. "

Rape Yellow

You too can customize and own a Bugatti Veyron in "Rape Yellow"
When I first saw this, I nearly cried from laughing, but then I realized that rape(rapeseed) is flower/seed known as Brassica Napus and Conola(Canadian oil low acid).

I did get a good laugh from a few friends about other colors that they should offer:

Andrew: Think I prefer "Consensual Red." Much safer color.

Thomas: Four swatches to the right must be Sodomy Brown.

Ray: I'm ordering mine in Gang Bang Green

Old Hip-Hop Posters

Today I was doing some more house cleaning and I came across these posters. I'm surprised that I've held on to these for this long. I remember back in the day I would walk around Melrose and collect a lot of these posters that I saw hanging on light post, walls, etc. Brings back a lot of fun memories of amazing hip hop shows and friends.

Pic Of The Day

Will.i.Am @ SoundLessons 11.26.10

Last week Friday I went to SoundLessons hosted by J-Logic and they had a very special guest come by and bless the tables. There were a few other surprises, but was just hanging out with Gladys, Emily, Damon(Smooth), and my man Donald(bay area). As usual we all had great time dancing and laughing. After the event you were treated with Pigeon John's outburst while eating bacon wrapped hotdogs.

Anyways, here's a video from Friday night.

Tron Pop-Up Shop 11.30.10

There's a special limited pop-up shop that opened in Culver City for the movie Tron. The event was nice and a few celebs showed up.

During the event they had an open bar, playable Tron games for the Wii and PS3, and a private room to listen to the Tron Motion Picture soundtrack scored by Daft Punk.

Skyline Movie Premiere

After long months, days, nights, hours, minutes, and seconds of hard work put in from everyone that worked on Skyline, we finally got a chance to see in all it's entirety last night at the premiere in Los Angeles at LA Live. We had a great turnout and all the noise I kept hearing from the crowd after the movie was over was how much they enjoyed watching the movie. I 'm really looking forward to seeing Skyline again this weekend with a public audience and hear their reaction. So if you don't have any plans this weekend, be sure to see Skyline. If you do have plans, break'em or squeeze in the time to watch it.

PingChat VS KIK

I have an iPhone4 and I use ping to connect with my blackberry, Android, and iphone friends. What's good about it is that it's a work around for people who don't have unlimited SMS or MMS plans. PingChat goes off your data plan so you don't get dinged as much if you were to text all the time using SMS.

Kik is the same thing BUT you can't send pics. It does one thing that PingChat doesn't do and that is to check if the receiver read your message or not.

So in the end PingChat is .99 and Kik is free. I'm going to go ahead and stick to using PingChat.

Aokigahara Suicide Forest

Next time I go to Japan I'll be sure to stop here to check it out, but I have NO plans on "hanging around."

Nokia VS. Apple Patent Woes

The SMS pic below is funny

"The Wall Street Journal is reporting that International Trade Commission (ITC) staffers, in a pre-hearing statement, noted that evidence in a pending patent-case Apple launched against Nokia will “not establish a violation.” Nokia and Apple have been exchanging legal blows since October of 2009; both companies have filed multiple complaints with the ITC in an attempt to get the competition’s importing rights banned.

“The ITC staff said on Monday that some of the Apple patents were invalid and others weren’t infringed,” writes the WSJ. “The statement said that if a judge determines Nokia violated patents, he should ban some Nokia phones from being imported into the U.S.”

The judge is expected to render a final decision in February."

SEMA 2010 Sneak Peek


Earlier in the week I went to the Clipper game with my boy Donnie and yes I'm a Clipper fan. This game was the season opener for them and the first game for Blake Griffin as rookie who would have started last year but he somehow injured his knee. The Clippers played the Portland Trailblazers which started off strong. Blake turned into a beast with his first dunk and score in the NBA within a minutes of the first quarter. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the Clippers had a 6 point lead and then they choked, so we ended up losing. In all I had a good time at the game.
