Because we spend all of our time on AIM, YouTube, 4chan, and just simply hung over, we had to hire the help of several freelancers to come in and do our jobs. This month's list is a bit longer than usual, as two of your three editors went to Japan to terrorize umbrella girls at Tokyo Auto Salon.

Tetsuya Ogushi
Once again he blows our mind with the grammar skills. Get the ibuprofen out cause you will definitely get a headache after reading Tetsu's Tail... err I mean Tetsu's Tale.

Roel Concepcion
Like a bad STD, we just can't get rid of Roel. Even though he's technically no longer with Source Interlink, he's still infecting the pages of our magazine.

Matt Greenop & Alastair Ritchie
When these two aren't shooting events and cars down under, they're wrestling crocs and throwing Coke bottles at the Bushmen. "Fosters," it's Austrailian for let's get crunk.

Ben OH
Is it Ben Oh, or Oh Ben? If we knew anything about car audio, we'd still have to resort to this guy. Oh Ben, you are the Oracle of car audio.

Taro Koki
Lucky Taro got to attend the I Heart Honda event in Japan, meeting with the likes of Keiichi Tsuchiya, Manabu Orido, Nobuteru Taniguchi, and Tatsuru Ichishima (Spoon Sports). We're not sure if we should pay him for this or make him pay us.

Wes Allison
Having your full name consist of two first names must be kinda weird. If we were Wes, we'd names all of our kids with using last names. "Hasselhoff"

Scott Dukes
We love to do it with the lights on, and so does Scott. Well that's two different things, but nonetheless that's one of the many reasons the Dukes is one of the best in the business.

Josh Mackey
Big Macs are 2 for $3.50 this month at McDonald's, but we couldn't get the same bargain with this Mac. Please hold the secret sauce from our order Josh.



If you love the way the Honda Civic Type R drives but wish it stood out more, the folks at Mugen have the solution

How do you make the Volkswagen GTI even better? Just add the letters “TCR” and crank up the boost.

Just about the only thing that can improve the supercar experience is taking the roof off, especially when the change results in basically no penalties to weight, performance, or dynamics

Look out Honda and VAG; Hyundai has just rolled out its new Veloster N race car that will compete in TCR (touring car) classes globally, including the 2019 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in the U.S.

A limited-edition, thoroughly revised WRX STI that’s only for the U.S., the S209 has more power, more grip, and plenty of chassis upgrades.
