OH SNAP> Risky Devil RPS13: Endangering Chicago

Risky Devil Junkhouse RPS13 180SX S13 240SX

Oh snap! Just found this Risky Devil RPS13 180SX photo on my hard drive! I’m back from a period of non-publishing on the blog – 3 weeks to be exact. Sorry folks, I injured my wrist/elbow, which made it very difficult to edit photos or even type on a computer. This being said, I’ve only been able to publish new content on Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. If you don’t follow @MOTORMAVENS in these places, you’re sleepin!

This is a photo of Josh Maghirang‘s right hand drive RPS13, taken while I was sitting shotgun in Leigh Roto‘s JZA70 Supra. It’s no secret that the Risky Devil crew, the boys from Grip Gambler, and all their other Chicago-based friends under the Junkhouse banner are a bunch of lowlifes who terrorize Chicago streets by driving like a bunch of a$$holes – tailgating each other at high speeds on the freeway, drifting freeway onramps and offramps, and street drifting in downtown Chicago right in front of popular clubs. No wonder all the residents of Chicago always yell F*CK JUNKHOUSE when they see these cars passing by! These guys are always up to no good… which is probably why I love hanging out with them! They are fun. (more…)


VIDEO> Risky Running the Windy City Wangan

Last night, when I asked Leigh and Dave from Risky Devil to pick me up at Chicago O’Hare Airport’s baggage claim, I had no idea what I would be getting into. I didn’t expect much… I thought maybe we’d go to a bar and get some deep dish pizza or something. Instead, Leigh and Dave texted a bunch of friends, and picked me up from the airport in a long procession of Chicago’s finest drift cars!

A simple “airport pickup” somehow turned into high speed freeway running and drifting through city streets in Chicago IL with all our boys from Risky Devil, Grip Gambler, Touge Factory, and JUNKHOUSE. Here’s a short, completely unprofessional looking video snippet of the experience. More to come later… it’s time for pizza! (more…)
