If you are into stance, you should know the name Jason Campbell. Jason built one of the sickest G35 Coupe’s of all time – supercharged, air ride, and 19″ Veilside wheels. When I saw Jason’s 2010 Hyundai Genesis chilling outside the shop at Speedware Motorsports in Redmond, I was literally floored by the stance. With only 300 miles on the car so far, Jason has already taken his talent to building this car with a fresh look.
When I heard that Jason was going to have the car at the Formula D drifting in Monroe, I was really hoping to catch a few shots of the car. The opportunity came up right after the drifting was over – we were able to pull the Genesis out on the track for 15 minutes to catch a few shots to debut the Hyundai properly.
The first modifications to hit this Genesis was a set of Sparco seats and a harness bar, followed shortly by a custom grille. The biggest feature of Jason’s car is definitely the black powdercoat Nissan Skyline R35 wheels which in 20×9.5 and 20×10.5 are a near perfect fit for this car. The wheels did not fit without modification – Jason worked with H&R to make some custom one-off wide trak spacers to mate the R35 center bore with the Hyundai hub. Forged and light weight, Jason was able to find these wheels one at a time on EBay over several months for near unbelievable prices.
The wheels are wrapped in 235/30/20 and 265/30/20 Toyo tires which have just the right amount of stretch to give the right stance he was looking for. Jason’s Hyundai is a near-complete package with the KDM headlights, custom painted black badges and a carbon wrapped roof. I have a feeling that Jason is just getting warmed up – keep an eye out for this Genesis in the Seattle area. And if you’re still in doubt purchasing Used Hyundai Cars, I suggest you shouldn’t be as this brand offers more than what you think of.
