Huge shoutout to The Higher Echelon! They currently have a brand new sticker maker and can handle any of your sticker needs. Recently they made an exclusive CarsxHype window banner my car, that turned out amazing! If you came out to our 3rd annual show (Carsxhype.com 3rd Annual Show coverage), you probably saw the huge mint sticker on my car
It is with a heavy heart I bring you guys the news that SWAY GEAR will no longer be operating. Although it may seem like somewhat of a melodramatic opening, to me it truly feels like the loss of a close friend. For those of you familiar with Carsxhype.com you are probably well aware of SWAY GEAR’s existence, whether it is through our product reviews of their merchandise or our recent collaboration with them on shirts. However, for those of you unfamiliar with SWAY GEAR let me share with you my experience with this great brand.

Here at CarsxHype we like to show support for our friends and the awesome work they do. Recently Sway Gear featured one of their sponsored cars, and this really caught our eye. Personally I love seeing slammed domestics, and what makes this one even better is, it is a domestic drifter!
Hey guys, my name is Ger (pronounced like you’re about to say Germany and not like Grr from invader zim ) I love photography, cars, drifting, and dubstep! I am the Head photographer of Norcal & merch man. These are my two babies; my 03 Honda Accord which was my first car, and my new project car a 92 Lexus Sc300 that I’m absolutely in love with. These photos are a bit old of my Sc300, I currently just got a new wheel setup (Miro 398 18×10.5 +20).
Hello all. I’m the Photog bringing you content from the Chicago area. I drive a 2002 Acura RSX. Its my Daily Driver but I take it Autocrossing and to the Track all the time in the Spring and Summer, because cars are meant to be driven so why not push it to its limits on the track and have some fun while you are at it. It is currently dropped on Koni Yellow’s with Neuspeed 1.75″ drop springs (Soon to be upgraded), I have an Eibach 24mm rear sway bar with Hotchkis Endlinks, Megan Racing front and rear Strut Braces, HPS SRI, 05-06 RSX base Wheels, Type-R Spoiler, DEPO Headlights, STI V-Spec Front Lip, 35% Tints all around, and a GSP Camber Kit. My plans for it this year are to get an A-Spec Rear Lip, Mugen Sideskirts, Type-R Front Lip, Summer Performance Tires (Not sure which tires I’m getting yet but I will be deciding and ordering them soon), a Megan Racing H-Brace, Takata Racing Harness (5 Point), and a few other small goodies. I have become so attached to my RSX, I don’t plan to sell it, just improve it more and more. About a year ago I started a Club for RSX’s in the Chicago Area called Chicago DC5, it now consists of 160+ Members in just the Chicago area, not bad for a car that was only made for 5 years
First off I’d like to start with a disclaimer…Carsxhype.com and those affiliated with carsxhype.com are not responsible for any wheels that turn out poorly from following these directions. This post is merely to show you what I did, there are a plethora of different ways to paint one’s wheels, this is just the poor college kid’s route I took. Check it out!
If you haven’t heard of the GMK crew yet, here they are! Grease Monkey Krew did it big this year! They brought out some of the freshest cars to the shows and their hard work paid off, by taking home some trophies and landing a feature. Gmk is a crew based out of Santa Rosa and they daily their cars. I remember first seeing their cars last year at West Coast Nationals and thinking those are some dope cars. I didn’t get a chance to talk to them last year though. Then I didn’t see them again until this year at Blox, where I saw that they changed up their whole style. I honestly didn’t recognize the cars. The time off gave em time to take already clean cars and make em different than what you normally see in Norcal. I introduce to you two members from GMK, Jose’s Fa5 and Jesus’ s14.
Here at Carsxhype we are a family, and when one of our family members are in need we try and do anything to help! Recently one of my friends and fellow carheads was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive soft tissue cancer, synovial sarcoma. Terry Richards an active carhead, father, fiance, and supporter of CxH. He is now in need of our help. He currently rents a house with his fiance where they live and take care of their 2 yr old son, Joshua. He’s only 21, and we’re trying to raise money because he’s not going to be allowed to work through treatment, so he won’t be able to afford the $25,000 in bills for treatment plus support a family. You can read the full story here @DoItForJoshey.
