If you are an automotive enthusiast, you will quickly recognize the phrase “Hellaflush“. It has become synonymous with modified cars and trucks that have aftermarket wheels that are flush with the fender. This might not seem like a big deal to the average Joe, but to the auto enthusiast, especially import enthusiasts, Hellaflush has become a trend that looks like it’s here to stay.
Getting your car Hellaflush requires a lot of research to ensure that the wheels and tires you purchase are the correct offset to make it sit just right when lowered. The tires also come in to play as each tire manufacture has different tire designs and this can make or break the stance of your car. The suspension is also very important and needs to give your car proper clearance. Popular suspension setups such as KSport Kontrol Pro Coilovers and Blackworks Coilovers have been used to create optimal stances. Seeing a video of the same car you have that is hellaflush gives you creative ideas on creating that look for your car or truck.
Online Video for Motorsports made easy with the GoPro HD
It’s never been easier to get motorsports action converted into online video. Before, enthusiasts would need to strap a makeshift camera to their roll cage or interior bars to be able to record the action to later show off on YouTube or Vimeo.
Before, people would take videos with their iPhones or other devices and then upload them to YouTube, but the picture quality was very low. However, GoPro can take 1080p video at 30 fps with incredible audio. Another incredible feature is a still shot feature, so you can take pictures as well as video.
