Recognized by Academia: By 1999, Z.Team Yossi was recognized as a tour-de-force in creating the import car scene culture and subsequently became an integral focus in the University of California, Berkeley, Masters Thesis, by UC Berkeley (Cal) graduate, Susan Kwon. Susan put together an abstract for RACINGMIX: "What's the Story Behind All Those Asians in the Import Scene?" by Susan Kwon.

International Notoriety: Guardian Unlimited UK, an internationally renown newspaper both in print and online, published an article, Speed Addicts, before the release of the film, The Fast and the Furious (Cohen, 2001). The author claimed the film storyline and character elements were closer to fact than fiction. An excerpt from the article reads: Drag-racing teams may not actually be populated by shiny-pated hunks like Vin Diesel or tough beauties like Michelle Rodriguez, but in other ways the film got it right. Diesel's chief rivals are a tough oriental gang; the real-life Z-Team Yossi, led by the fearsome Tai brothers, are one of the most successful drag-racing teams in California. Shaun Tai has got his nitrous oxide-powered VW Tessa under the 10-second mark in various official meetings, while the Yossi's group of sexy "Hunnies" are there to bring some glamour to the all-oriental team wherever they race. (Will Hodgkinson, The Guardian, September 8, 2001
