Welcome to Modified powered by Honda, an all-new series focusing on the love of tuning cars. On this episode, Matt Powers and Geoff Stoneback descend upon GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan to give you a firsthand look at Gridlife 2017. Nothing has taken over the scene in the past few years like Gridlife. It popped up seemingly out of nowhere, and now it’s one of the biggest events in the industry. Part festival, part time-attack racing, part drift competition, it’s the site of some of the most fun that can be had at a racetrack. But the event wouldn’t be complete without adding in a challenge of our own. Borrowing a 771-hp turbocharged K24 Civic Si from driver Will Au-Yeung and an LS3-swapped Enjuku Racing 350Z from driver Savanna Little, Powers and Stoneback face off in a time-attack challenge to see who is the fastest around GingerMan Raceway.
