Car spotting at JDM TT 3.0

By Faiming_low on 22 Feb 2016 in Modifications, Events

Attached Image First and foremost, I must apologise for the long overdue post on my end. Yes, I was actually at last year's JDM TT 3.0 in Kuala Lumpur but time wasn't on my side, so I never really had the opportunity to sort out what I shot at the event until recently.

For those who have no idea what event this is, it's basically a hangout ( TT meant "Tea drinking" in Malaysia i guess?) session/car meet for Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars. Organised by Racenotrice.com, this is the third installment of the meet since 2013 and an estimated 500 cars and 1,000 people turned up for the meet.

Anyway, enough of talking. Here's what turned up at the event...

Attached Image The Toyota AE86 needs no introduction I believe. This one here looking mint.

Attached Image It's a pity we don't get to see the Toyota Supra in Singapore anymore.

Attached Image Large exhaust for the Supra is the norm.

Attached Image Yes that's a Toyota engine in a Mazda RX-8. Owner was keen to show what he had as he was revving it once in a while.

Attached Image Retro trucks are cool...

Attached Image So are retro police cars...

Attached Image How about a K20 swapped Honda EK Civic hatch?

Attached Image The Supra was one of the best show car that turned up...

Attached Image Veilside Mazda RX-7. Fast and Furious fans would love this.

Attached Image

Attached Image Lovely Toyota Cressida.

Attached Image The Datsun 510, another retro JDM favourite.

Attached Image

Attached Image Silvia S13 looking ready for time attack.

Attached Image Mazda RX-7 again...

Attached Image And another one.

Attached Image And while it was pulling away, we spotted another one.

Attached Image There are many Honda CR-Zs here in Malaysia. This was just one of the many that drove past.

Attached Image One of my personal favourites, the Toyota Altezza. Again, there seems to be quite a few of them here too.

Attached Image As usual, the Honda Civics were well represented.

Attached Image Those familiar with highway street racing in Osaka will like this dressed-up Kanjo-look EK sedan and the third generation Civic below.

Attached Image More Kanjo weapons here...

Attached Image One of the few DC2 Integras that we spotted. Attached Image

Attached Image No JDM meet would be complete without some GT-Rs. Since they are quite common locally, I skipped taking photos of them.

Attached Image Then to my astonishment, I chanced upon a big group of Mitsubishi Evolution 5 and 6 at the quieter end of the meet. While there are a couple of these mean rally heroes here in Malaysia, they are rarely seen on the roads. So seeing so many at one time took me by surprise!

Attached Image As this lone Subaru WRX crawled past... I realised there might just be a group of Subarus parked nearby...

Attached Image True enough there was!

Attached Image But before I had time to shoot, everyone started to leave as it was getting late.

Attached Image Well, that sums up my little coverage of the JDM TT 3.0 meet. For those who wish to attend the next one, do hang out on the Malaysian car forums and you might get to know when the next one is!

jdm, malaysia, kuala lumpur and 2 more...
