TRANSLOGIC 32: Japan, Modding

We travel to Japan for a look at some of the most innovative, interesting and insane forms of transportation in the world. First up: modding culture. The Japanese don't just modify their cars for performance and style, they trick out their scooters and cargo vans as well! http://translogic.aolautos.com/

YikeBike | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/BoVVnM Before we depart the UK for the rest of our European tour, we had to check out the YikeBike. Hardcore fans of the show will recall this personal mobility device from TRANSLOGIC 5 where it confounded our hosts. But after more than a year to refine their concept, we wanted to give YikeBike's 2-wheeled wonder another chance. We're glad we did.

How will Honda's new CR-Z hybrid sports car hold up against the acclaimed S2000 roadster and 1st-gen Honda Insight? Does the novel CR-Z strike the right balance of performance and efficiency? Bradley takes all 3 cars for a test drive to find out. http://translogic.aolautos.com





Volkswagen XL1 | TRANSLOGIC
How do you build the world's most fuel-efficient production car? Start with the world's most aerodynamic design. The Volkswagen XL1 is capable of 261 miles per gallon thanks to its sleek shape and ultra efficient diesel-electric hybrid powertrain. The downside is that only 250 will be made and none will be sold stateside. That didn't stop us from taking our turn behind the wheel of this truly revolutionary ride. Here's our test drive of the Volkswagen XL1.

Lexus LFA | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/tsvm7I What do you get when a carmaker like Toyota decides to combine the performance knowledge of its racing division with the refinement and exclusivity of its luxury brand? The Lexus LFA: a nearly $400,000 supercar with power and technology oozing from its many gills. The LFA may carry a civilized Lexus badge on its hood, but underneath, its 552 hp V10 engine is anything but. Oh, and did we mention it's offered in an understated hue of eye-melting yellow?

Japan Car Mod Gangs - Kaido (Highway) Racer I
A strange phenomenon occured in the 80s - the birth of the car modding genre "Kaido Racer". Kaido means Highway in Japanese. The idea was to take a regular car and make it colorful, as wildly modded as possible and often as noisy as possible. The modding isnt to make the car better - it is to take a car and turn it into a public offense. The idea was to essentially rebel against the law - the cars are illegally modded with huge tailpipes that often run directly from the engine block, massive spoilers that jut out to the point of being absurd. This modding style was popular around the Tokyo area in the 80s and like most Japanese trends, evntually died out in the larger centers....but trickled into the countryside and remained in small pockets of Japan. This footage was taken from an event that took place in Ibaragi Prefecture in 2007... a countryside province of Japan - nothing but rice fields, simple people and idiots like these guys... These car enthusiasts are usually lower income manual labour countryside types - bricklayers, builders, mechanics and such. "Hicks" would be a suitable term to describe them simply. The premise is to drive up and down the highway making a nuisance of themselves... revving the engine noisily, hanging out the window, driving slowly, swerving all over the road, causing obstructions and being defiant toward the police. Rebellion born into a very peculiar form of expression. The funniest part is that these guys are dead serious about it. This isn't funny to them - It's a lifestyle.





Kenguru Wheelchair-Accessible EV | Translogic
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/T9YPk3 One major issue facing transportation is accessibility, especially for those in wheelchairs. From public to personal transit, a wheelchair presents unique mobility challenges. Sure, it's possible to outfit existing vehicles for wheelchair accessibility, but the process is expensive and doesn't always yield a complete, integrated solution. That's where Kenguru changes things. The Kenguru is an electric vehicle with no seats, that allows drivers to control the car from their wheelchair. We went to Pflugerville, Texas to try it out.

Jetsprint Racing | TRANSLOGIC
Watch Next Ep. Here: http://goo.gl/8TBrjb If you thought H1 Unlimited was the craziest motorsport on water, then you've probably never seen a Jetsprint race. While not as fast as their hydroplane counterparts, sprint boats are plenty nimble. The winding waters and twisted trenches of Jetsprint courses rarely occur naturally, so competitors actually dig the 3 foot deep channels themselves.
