Pretty soon you are going to have to rename this series to Japanese Word Of The Day.

 

I predict much wailing and gnashing of teeth over this one.

Me too.

People seemed to dig the JDM stuff, so we revisited it.

My word of the day for super-stretched tires and 20 degrees of negative camber:   "Asinine" - adjective; meaning stupid, ignorant, and downright dangerous.

I went on a toy run last year and a Veedub with crazy camber and and about 2 inches of barrel sticking outside the tire had the beads blow sending them almost careening into nearby cars
