A Tribute to Paul Walker from The Fast and the Furious

5th December 2013 | BY Adam

We grew up with The Fast and the Furious, with Vin Diesel’s tank tops and Paul Walkers granny shifting and not double clutching like he should. They were easy watching, exciting and most importantly inspired millions of people to get in to the modified car scene.

The Fast and the Furious released this emotional tribute to Walker less than 24 hours ago and already it has had nearly 700,000 views - testament to the support and following the star has.

Rest in peace Paul.

MEET: TDOC Diesel Dyno Day at RS Tuning, Leeds

31st May 2013 | BY Adam

Turbo Diesel Owners Club Dyno Day (6)

A beautiful sunny dawn broke to the sound of birds chirping, a gentle breeze rustled the leaves on the trees and the NSNP Leon’s PD engine spoiled it all as it chugged it’s way out and on the the street. Our destination was RS Tuning in Leeds where we were attending the TDOC diesel dyno day. After a traffic free 2 hour blast up the M1 we made it to Leeds with enough time time to spare that we had the Leon cleaned before the 9am kick off.

Happy New Year!

1st January 2013 | BY NSNP

It was around this time last year that the final preparations for the site were being made. We had an idea as to what NSNP would be and where we wanted it to go. An inclusive community built up around a love for diesels, a blog featuring cars, companies and individuals that inspired us (and you) and a social calendar to merge our online presence with real life face time.

We’ve come a long way in twelve short months and already the site has evolved and developed organically. We’ve made a few subtle changes to our original plans and listened to the feedback we’ve had from you guys. What we’ve found most humbling is the response NSNP has had and how it’s been embraced by so many in an industry that’s notoriously tightly knit. In June Tom and I drove to Belgium to attend Maximized, when we arrived we set up our pitch and watched the locals arrive in their hundreds. By the early evening we were sat around a camp fire drinking beers with a huge group of new people who we’d now proudly call our friends.

We’re starting to see our stickers appearing on cars across the world and talk on the web about NSNP.

We’ve featured some amazing companies who are pushing the envelope in their respective automotive fields, with the guys working behind the scenes as welcoming and accommodating as those at the forefront. The Christmas go karting meet was a perfect way to finish off the year with the friends we’ve made along the way and we’re hoping that each event will grow bigger and better than the last and bring more new faces in to the fold.

We’re looking forward to what 2013 brings.

We’ll be at more shows and featuring more cars, there will be more NSNP clothing and accessories, more videos and photo shoots and a loads more social events. In the New Year we want to team up with new photographers and writers to bring more fresh content from across the world. We want to reach out to as many as we can this year and start connecting people who’s paths wouldn’t usually have crossed.

So here’s to 2013, lets make it a good one and we hope it brings you good health, good luck and a whole lot of happiness.

From us at NSNP…

Happy New Year!

SOCIAL: Christmas Karting Meet @ Cannon Raceway, Wolverhampton [W/ VIDEO]

12th December 2012 | BY NSNP

Last Sunday saw a group of the World’s top ranked drivers shoot it out at a secret UK location to finally find out who is the greatest racer of all time… Ok so it was more like a group of mates meeting up for some pre-Christmas karting, but the stakes were still high. There was something more important on the line than some old championship, this was bragging rights down the pub and lad’s (and ladies) honour!

MEET: REVO & STaSIS Winter Breakfast meet

11th December 2012 | BY NSNP

If you’re in the market for a remap, chances are somebody has suggested you have your car “Revo’d”. Back in 2002, Revo became industry pioneers by offering “switchable” ECU maps via the OBDII port and their reputation has grown and grown ever since.

Last weekend they opened their doors to the unwashed masses, hosting a breakfast meet and hog roast at their Daventry HQ, so we went along for a pork bap and a nosey around the workshop.
