[COVERAGE] Tuner Evolution – Philadelphia

August 10th, 2015 by Elusive Media

Tuner Evolution has always been one of those shows we all count down the days for, why? We know it will be well organized, plenty of entertainment, vendors we are interested in, beautiful ladies in the model lounge, and only the best cars make the cut. This year Tuner Evolution invited back the Drift RC Comp/Demo along with the popular Breakdance Comp/Demo. The main stage also had live music and DJs throughout the day, until the Bikini Contest and Awards finish off the night. Because the show attracts such a wide audience of enthusiasts, the show also expanded into another section of the Expo Center, which allowed more car builders to show off and unveil their builds. We also had fire alarm go off which sent us all outside for about an hour. While this was a minor inconvenience, we all just continued to chat with our friends before getting the all clear to reenter the building. The show is not only organized car enthusiasts but the staff live the lifestyle every day. They know what their fans what to see and for almost 10 years, i have left the show disappointed. Thanks to the Tuner Evo Staff for another successful year that we will all remember!

[COVERAGE] Tuner Evolution

August 5th, 2013 by Elusive Media

Previously in York, PA, Tuner Evolution grew to the point where it needed to find a new location and the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center was it. With more room and all in doors, weather would not be a factor. Besides all the great vendors, cars, and model lounge to keep ya busy for hours on end, Tuner Evolution bring something different than any other show; AM Flatland Circuit BMX Competition along with a Breakdance 1v1 Dance Battle competition. TJIN Edition Road Sideshow was also in attendance showing off their recent builds, a Chevy Camaro and a Toyota Tocoma. If that wasn’t enough, Driftsylvania RC Drift demo and competition and the popular bikini contest with a $500 prize finished off the night at the event! Hats off to everyone that showed up and made this show possible, amazing time and way to step it up from years past.

Enjoy the photos!

[COVERAGE] WIP’s Wing Bowl 21

February 2nd, 2013 by Elusive Media

As the new couch of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly, who showed up at this years Wing Bowl XXI, said “that the second most important bowl, besides the Super Bowl, which is my goal, is the Wing Bowl”..at least in Philadelphia area. With that said, this years Wing Bowl did not disappoint. After last years domination of Kobayashi, Jon Squibb was ready to reclaim his crown after his 3-year streak was broken last year. A new comer, McDonald “the Bear”, wouldn’t give Squibb an easy victory tho. After the first round, Goldstein “US Male”, was winning at 148 eaten; Squibb at 138 and Bear at 130. Once the 2nd round started, Bear devoured 135 wings to take the lead from US Male and lead over Squibb at 265 vs 253. It would come down to the 2 minute to find out who would be crowned this years winner. After a quick 120 seconds, 37YR old US Navy Veteran, The Bear, makes an upset defeating Squibb by only 5 wings eaten!! US Male holds onto 3rd, downing 266 wings, capturing a win in the local bracket.

1. The Bear – 287
2. Jonathan “Super” Squibb – 282
3. US Male – 266
