PCI spherical RTA bushing install/review

To say that this is the best thing I have ever installed would be a bold statement! I have installed lots of great things in my years of fixing up Hondas. But none have given such an immediate improvement to all areas of driving as the PCI spherical RTA bushings. Right away most of you are probably thinking I’m crazy for installing them in my daily driver. You’ve probably all heard that these will increase road noise, and be too…

Patrick’s double duty S2000

Patrick’s double duty S2000

I’ve known Patrick now for about 8 years. When I first met him he came rolling up in a Integra with black painted spoon calipers, and black painted Teins. I was appalled that someone would disgrace a spoon caliper like that. He said the reason he was doing it was to be more low-key, which I half way agreed with. But still you don’t dishonor a spoon caliper by changing its appearance, it would be like painting over the Mona…

SCCA @ LVMS ORC

SCCA @ LVMS ORC

Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) has a many race tracks on its facility, and is located very close to any Las Vegan in the valley. However there are not as many public track day events as you would think there. This leaves only the Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch in Pahrump NV, which most people say is too far (yet its only 45-60 min away depending on your location in the valley). As our society only becomes more lazy and only…

Hardrace Front and rear camber kit Install/Review

You know how when you drive a brand new car it just feels so nice and crisp? It goes over speed bumps smoothly, it drives so straight and true, it feels so responsive, and any steering input is immediate. It’s nice right? You wish your car could feel this way? Well truth is your car can feel this way. As your car gets older, as the weather and climates of the environment you live in start to take a toll…

The hype is real with Pete’s S13 build

The hype is real with Pete’s S13 build

Tein Flex Z review/install

So let’s start off with the “must haves” of my purchase… It had to be below 1000 bucks, not too aggressive since it was going on my daily, be readily accessible, from a company with a good reputation, no pillow ball top hats, and no crazy spring rates. Now that you know the criteria of my purchase I don’t want to get comments about you should have bought this, or that, blah blah blah. Three weeks ago I started to…

How to: change Honda manual trans fluid

How to: change Honda manual trans fluid

Manual trans fluid change. This is probably one of the most overlooked fluid changes out there, I mean really how often do you ever, or hear of people changing it. Even by Honda’s official standards you have already done the coolant twice and the brake fluid once before they “recommend” you change the trans fluid at the 90k service. By that time even the worst of car owners have done 9 oil changes, the average owner will have done 18,…

How to: properly set Honda ignition timing

How to: properly set Honda ignition timing

Most people now days that call themselves “car enthusiasts” don’t know the first thing about actual maintenance of their car/motor. They could care less about longevity of engines, or whether or not its going to make reliable power. Ever since I have been into cars I have always performed maintenance frequently. Oil changes every 1000 miles, valve adjustments, ignition timing, coolant flush, and trans oil changes every 3000k miles ( or in the case of my race car after every…
