    Exclamation April 2008 Ride of the Month

    Congratulations to Brandon Eads, alias: xbrandonx, of Shelbyville, Kentucky. His 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V was chosen as the April 2008 FreshAlloy Ride of the Month. Brandon first fell in love with Nissans when he started modding a 1.6L automatic 1998 Sentra. He longed for more power though, so he upgraded to a newer Sentra Spec V. That still wasn't enough... he continued upgrading every aspect of his ride, turning it into a truly stunning ride. Thats why it was chosen to represent FreshAlloy staff, moderators, and FreshAlloy Elite as this month's winner.

    Bio of the Car:

    The car has toured on several car show circuits and now is just for my full enjoyment. I still do some small local shows and I continue to mod the car, but everything is done because its something I want to do, not because it'll bring extra points to a judge. I've even been seen at the track, full stereo system in the trunk, 19" wheels and all. I still have quite a few ideas for the car just as any project, no matter if you're going for just performance, all show or a mix, the car is no where near being finished.

    Thanks to all who entered the April competition. Tough competition is what the ROTM is all about, and every month even stiffer competition steps up to the plate. Think you've got a ride worthy of enough for next month's competition? Submit your ride to or

    Winners are also entered in the FA Ride of the Year contest, voted on by all Freshalloy members, the winner receiving a grand prize yet to be determined. Additionally, keep in mind our friends atNissan Sport Magazine will be watching the ROTM threads for prospective vehicles to feature in their magazine!

    Before/after weights available? The body parts replaced seemed it would shave a decent amount of weight, but did the ICE offset that? Just curious, not being picky.

    Seriously, congrats on ROTM xbrandonx - good to see a Sentra getting love from the electors (I drove one back in the day - not of the dinosaurs - but back a few ....)

    Couldn't agree more on the all-around performer that is the B15 SpecV, had a '03 myself, loved that car, miss it tons.

    Congrads on the ROTM for April, loving the car and that color w/ the cf, is just sexy as hell.

    BTW, where's the underhood pics? :p
