March News

Welcome back to the TeamShock news letter.

Were already at that time of year where the final few fresh mods are being added to the cars in preparation for the 2007 show season. With only 2 weeks before Fast Show and with Donny only a month away cars have been away having there new looks for the coming season.

Fresh new metal

So what’s new and coming to the TS stands this year? Heres a brief line up of a small selection of the new and freshened up rides:

Alex’s Integra has evolved in leaps and bounds and is now dripping in carbon with a real mean JDM look.

Phil’s Polo is away at Imagination having a new lick of paint and some subtle smoothing.

Another VW joins the site fresh out of Panel Crafts work shop in the form of Jacks Candy Red Golf with some seriously small euro rims tucked under the arches.

My own MR2 is back after being pampered by the boys at Xqusite with a new lick of Baby Blue paint and a set of colour coded lips along with a few new body mods.

Chunkys Civic is on the horizon and in its running in stages with its new supercharged lump.

Mr Toakley is back in his element, his Mini has been stripped and there’s a serious engine project going on to make the little car another little road weapon. Check out his work log in car chat.

Matt has been working hard on his Sierra and the blue oval is now sporting its new turbo engine, with a few more tweaks the motor should be on the road again soon soon.

Its been exhausting work for our Joe and his Integra, after picking up a custom exhaust system off E-bay it was soon binned in favour of a buddy club system that was also quickly removed from the car for fear of waking the dead, annoying isn’t the word this thing caused brain haemorrhages! However the sporty Honda now stops on the spot with its new AP Racing disks and greenstuff pads. The teggy also has a bit of custom work in the pipeline soon to be released and sure to turn heads.

Cruise for cancer.

TeamShocks 2nd charity cruise took place in January and raised £850 for the Royal Berkshire Cancer Care Unit. In excess of 500 cars turned up and supported the event at MOTO services in Reading. What started off as a very wet day soon dried up and brought the cruisers out for a successful night. We are waiting on a donation of an additional £500 from a large bank before we hand the money over to the charity. The event was covered by local papers and Street Life TV for there April issue. Thanks to all those who supported the cruise including Mark from Max power who came along with us for the night.
