Pictures by tons of different random people (but all the best ones are taken by David Karey because he actually knows what all the knobs and buttons on a DSLR do).
Rossy had an idea to get a bunch of people together for a toy drive to benefit the kids at City of Hope in time for Christmas. The result went WAY beyond expectations. The event was a huge success. There were a bunch of DSMs, EVOs, some drift cars and even one STi that showed up. Also, Joon Maeng was on hand signing autographs while his car was filled to the brim with toys that he and Rossy
Another MOD and another great event as usual. We brought cars, the RRE Girls, the RRE Dynapack AWD Dyno Contest, parts displays, shade, robots, a kid’s play area and more shade for the July heat. We teamed up with our partners Road Race Motorsports and Zeitronix to fill out the Road Race Pavilion with non stop action.
We pulled out all the stops this year. Rossy scored a coup and got Danielle Lo and Erica Ocampo from two of our recent DSPORT cover cars along with our regular RRE models Holly Lee and Michele Yee to come out.
Danielle and Erica were signing magazine covers of their respective shoots with Ben Denkers’ red EVO 8 RS and Tim Smith’s blue EVO X.
For now, I’ll just let the pics speak for themselves :-)

Girl’s Tank top
Road Race Engineering teamed up with Mr Ticket and went to Hot Import Nights at Pomona Fairplex recently. This was the first HIN event of the year and we brought the RRE 4G Eclipse GT as well as Tim Smith’s EVO X GSR which won second place in the four door class competition. Tim’s GSR was recently featured in DSport Magazine. RRE model Natalia Marie was with us to keep the peace and deal out a little street justice where necessary.

I have been buried for a few months but just before things went nuts with work and life, I got a chance to update my stealthy street/track EVO VIII. My goal with this car is to have a car that does not get too much attention from unwanted parties and is streetable with a tad of blingage but can still be more than fun to drive to the track, drive on the track and drive home from the track.

Rossy took the RRE race cars to the LA Convention center for a night out this last weekend. The shop EVO 8 and 4G Eclipse got a lot of attention as always :-)
A Euro magazine sent Jay Canter to the shop recently to get some pics of our shop EVO 8 race car. We went to the closed refinery down Lakeland Rd asked if we could get in to take some pics with the freaky background. With a little begging and a lot of convincing that we wouldnt be doing donuts and generally causing a hazmat response – we got in. After we took some beauty shots, we ran the car through Turnbull Canyon for some driving shots with the car moving.
Looking forward to see how it turns out. I can shoot over the shoulder of these pro photographers all I want and… well with them being professionals and all, my pics look amateur for some reason :-P
Here are my point and shoot pics:
RRE’s tuner Scot Gray is dialing up the cute on his built motor. We had his valve cover and intake manifold gloss black. We topped off the valve cover with the RRE Hot Dog Grille plug wire cover in brushed aluminum finish. With what we learned from when Justin powder coated his valve cover last year, we made sure nothing got inside the valve cover when it got sand blasted to clean it up. The intake manifold also got a thorough cleaning inside before installing it.
Scot picked up a carbonfiber hood from Carbontrix next door. Carbontrix also set him up with one of our hood scoops in carbon. We cut it into the hood to grab the hot air coming off the radiator and turbo just ahead of the valve cover.
