APC Go Away!

APC needs to stay the hell away from drifting, those bastards! I picked up a copy of Modified mag a while ago and saw that they managed to sponsor a FD3S and two S15's. I can say that I doubt any actual APC parts are on the car except maybe one of their ****ty air filters. I dunno if anyone else has griped about this yet but I am fet-up. I dont care if they sponsor a GTO or a Vette or a Viper. Thats a American car for APC to rice out. Please don't touch JDM cars APC stay with Rice Mobiles! ThATS all I had to say feel free to add anything if you want.

We should welcome all manufactures, wether it's APC, nismo, Autozone, etc...
I live to see the day KIRKLAND will make parts for cars. I just might have to buy my intake in bulk @ COSTCO.

Moved to OT

I don't feel like going deep into it...but APC has been around in the US drifting world from what I know/seen for about a year. The only APC parts that I know those cars have, are the neon/leds. I'm with sirikool btw

They actually have an S13 bodykit and it's not that bad... at least they're actively trying to help promote drifting and they're participating in its growth here in the U.S.

On the same note... you won't see generic brands sponsoring race cars... like Bomz, Matrix, Megan, and all the other so-called "performance racing" companies on Ebay

...imagine N.O.B. with a set of those "Nismo" racing seats in his car ROFL

team orange of japan is sponsored by APC. i think it was those cars that you saw. they should have been orange.

i know two of them are 180sx's with s15 front end. one of the 180sx is a truck. the third car i cant remember what it is, but i think it is an FD.

Just for further explanation I have no problem with APC promoting drifting. They need to stay away from nice Japanese cars though. I guess it's just a opinion.

...so what about B&M into a 240sx? That's probably one of the best upgrades for these cars.

And remember, don't blame APC, Matrix, etc. the other makers of stuff you don't like or stuff that sucks - Blame the people who buy into all that crap and put it on their cars.

yea its like a nissan v tec or a honda hemi i dont think they where meant to be but i guess its not necesarily a bad thing, just somethin that everyones gonna feel differently about. i honestly dont think to much about it cause i dont buy their products, i dont work for them, and i dont care for them so whats it gonna hurt me if they rice out a few s 13s or fd's i know poor cars but they aint mine, just as long as it dont get out of hand and every car in d1 starts doin it then i could care less about 2 or 3 riced out cars. its makein them money so what do they have to lose?
