K SWAP GUIDE (THE PROLOGUE)

K SWAP GUIDE (THE PROLOGUE)

About 2 years ago Patrick and I were at our local track (Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch) in Pahrump NV.  I was having a great day driving at my peak, while Pat was trying to work through some minor issues. Once he had worked all the kinks out he managed to get a few laps in before catastrophe struck! He pulled off the track into our pit and as he pulled close you could hear the unmistakable sound of rod knock….

Hybrid Racing Shifter Review and Install

In today’s world of social media, we have become so used to validating someone’s credibility by basing how many followers they have to how knowledgeable they are.

As we all know too well, once you start modifying your car there is a never ending domino effect of parts that you need to keep adding.

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

Over the past 6 months you have watched me build this car into the daily driving, track capable, budget car that you see here today. The point of this build was to have an all around car that I could thrash on with out fear of financial consequences if I were to wreck it. This once daily driver, slowly turned track car was built from spare parts I had lying around as “cheaply” as possible, and as “stock” as possible…

Track Day Prep

Track Day Prep

The terms track inspired, track build, or even track stance have no doubt been gaining  popularity over the last few years.

Budget Big Brake Kit

Budget Big Brake Kit

When most people think about building a car, the first thing they usually do is power, then handling, and braking always tends to get pushed on the back burner. However if you actually take your car to a track day event, you will quickly learn how having adequate braking is more important than power. Just because your brakes “feel” good on the street doesn’t mean that they will work well under harsh track driving conditions. No one better understands this…
