Weekly Dos and Donts of Modifying

Hello BZOCAs and readers, leaving a ride in stock condition is hard to accomplish by. Even by adding a turbo timer would consider as messing with the ride already. Here at BZOCA, asking and giving suggestions to each member's next mod has become a ritual. Sharing thoughts and ideas on how they want their Zs to be, does require a second or a third opinion. The moddifying scene are full of both good and bad modifications on a particular ride.

Hence the intro of "Weekly Dos and Donts of Modifying" is posted whereby each week, a "Do" and a "Dont" of modifying in general is shared. Bare in mind this is just a guideline, it may or may not be useful but its good to share. This week's:

Do: Spend Most money on tyres

This applies to all the rides out there. The very best tyres that you can afford is the way to go as tyres are the most important components to any ride. It is the main contact patch of your ride to the road.

Decent tyres will improve your ride in term of its handling, braking power and a few other aspects. However expensive tyres does not mean its good. Therefore do your research and ask your friends on the tyres they have used before.

Dont: Compromise your safety

(Pic from

Once your on the road, safety is the main priority. You may be the most carefull driver on the road, however the drivers around you may not. Installing a full point roll cage, a quick release steering or changing bucket seats may be on the next to do list of a modder. But do bare in mind that the ride you bought do come standard with optional features that other cars do not have (i.e side and seat airbags), and you have paid for it.

Main point is, give it a good thought before installing anything that might compromise your safety and your passenger.

Thats all for this week, enjoy your weekend and drive safe.

Building a show winner ride 101 (Part 1)

Good morning BZOCAs and readers. Recent car show events here in Brunei has surprised more spectators each year with their amazing mods and presentations. Each has its own taste of mods and themes. Towards the end of the show, any participant's mind would tend to be nervous during the trophy presentation and hoping to bring back at least a trophy home. On today's post, BZOCA would like to share a few tips on how to improve your chances during a car show. Enjoy...

(Pic from

Section A: Interior

Make sure it is consistent with your theme. For example, race theme with racing bucket seats and a few appropriately placed meters. Or an elegant theme with rich leather interior. For those with customs leather or vinyl interior make sure the material is consistent from panel to panel.

Section B: Eye for details

For those with wide fenders or body, make sure it flows smoothly with your current ride's body line. Avoid unexpected widening just to fit in wider rims. Rims with deep dish should be polished mirror shine.

Section C: Undercarriage

Theres no use modding and detailing your undercarriage with aftermarket items such as coilovers, braces,chamber kits and so on if it is all hidden from the judges view. Put up blocks under your wheels and flaunt your undercarriage with mirrors underneath. This is a major advantage for participants going for drifters theme whereby most of their amazing mods are definitely shown there. Another example is to take of one of your wheels to show the aftermarket items hidden back there.

Section D: Paint and vinyls

Vibrant and unique colours may help you stand out from the other participants however again choose wisely to match with your theme. Watch out for those cracks on paints and any stone chips before the show. For those who may not opted to change their body paint, body vinyls is your next cheaper option. Choose your design wisely.

Section E: Bodykit

Spending thousands of dollars on an authentic bodykit or doing a custom kit wont guarantee you in favour of the judges giving a high score. Judges will look at the paint quality finish and the fitting done to your ride. Any distortion or misalign finishes and poor fitment may cost you.

Thats all for now. Section F to G will be continued on a later post. Any comments or additional tips are welcome and may be posted up here. Thanks
