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.

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.

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.

TRANSLOGIC 56: Bremach T-Rex Electric
Have you ever seen a truck advertisement that doesn't mention torque? We didn't think so. That's because torque is one of the most important metrics used to measure a truck's ability. It provides the "get up and go" that comes in handy when towing a heavy payload, or pulling a stump (roots and all) from the soil, or anything you've seen a rugged pickup do in one of those "like a rock" ads. If you're a fan of the show, you may have heard us mention torque a few times as well. That's because nothing provides more of it off the line than a good ol' electric motor. That's where the Bremach T-Rex comes in; a workhorse ATV that also happens to be 100% electric...and 100% badass.





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?
