My Civic v11.0.2

  February 2017…. I was in a ‘little’ motorcycle accident.  I was off work for about three months, and by the time I was ready to come back from it all my life was spiraling outta control.   Disability checks weren’t comping in, work stuff was falling apart and then right when I got back……the company I have working for my life, a career of 18 years was bought out by another company…Amazon. Needless to say it has been one…

While i know this is for good reason’s Cheap, parts are readily available, proven chassis, everyone is or knows someone that is knowledgeable about them.

If you were into imports in the late 90’s or even early 2000’s there was no better car to get than a 1992-95 civic hatchback (except for a Integra type r), call it what you like EG, or EH either way it was the holy grail of being an enthusiast of imports. With its incredible lightness, its ease to work on, pretty much anything off an Integra was a direct bolt on/upgrade. these little civic’s were highly sought after for…

Vegas Drift 1/28/17

This was the first event of the 2017 season, and it was held on my most favorite track of all the Vegas layouts the outside road course. With about only 20 drivers drifting on the actual road course (north course) and (main course) it left those drivers that showed up with more seat time than they could handle,not only was the drivers roster low but we were lacking event staff too.  I was asked to run the north course which…

Now before you go and give me a hard time about taking out my door bars, let me explain my reasoning.

Getting into and out of my car was a bit ridiculous, and when i would drive aggressively  i would always hit my…

Night Drives

Only the driver can truly feel this sensation, the joy of applying pressure to your right foot and getting a direct reaction as you rev it through the RPM’s knowing you are solely responsible for the power and sound it produces only to shift milliseconds before redline.
