Once again Super Street’s yearly Tuner Battle Week has managed to gather some of the most killer street and track cars from the west coast! We were super excited that our #Project86S was picked to participate in this Tuesday’s inaugural 86 Showdown presented by Continental Tire, sadly our project car wasn’t exactly 100% ready to attack the Streets of Willow due to a little incident that happened on the freeway right before this years 86 Fest. However we still decided to bring her out to duke it out with many well prepped street and track FR-S’s that Southern California Car Enthusiasts and Companies brought out alike! We’re not at liberty to discuss lap times, you will just have to wait for it in a future issue of Super Street’s magazine! However we would like to thank our friends over at Auto Tuned in Monrovia, CA for helping with last minute prep on our car, and the people over at Continental Tire for the awesome set of brand new ExtremeContact Sport Tires which will be available for sale in February 2017! Final thanks to Super Street for hosting Tuner Battle Week! Please enjoy this small coverage of the many participants of #FFBattle and #86Showdown at the beautiful Streets of Willow!

Devyn Bandonillo’s 2011 Acura CSX Conversion, sadly Devyn was experiencing a major alignment issue with this Jackson Racing SC that ended up making him not able to run more than 1 session at the FFbattle. After a couple of hours of fiddling it one of Devyn’s friends came in and disassembled his kit and we ended up finding out that all it took was two broken bolts to end his day early. Don’t worry though you will be seeing this CSX ripping up the track soon enough!
