F20/H22 complete cooling system upgrade civic chassis specific (nate’s car)

About a year ago Nate bought his 92 F20B swapped civic SI, and since then we have been slowly fixing up what the previous owners had done poorly. Ever since he bought the car there has been small pin hole leak in the radiator. It was nothing to worry about, just would drip a couple of drops out while driving splashing coolant drops on various parts under the hood. As many of you should know, the cooling system is a…

Vegasdrift 5/29/19

I probably have more friends that drift than I have that drive Hondas. This means for me its great to head out to our local grassroots drift events held by Vegasdrift and hang out, talk shit, and watch some people beat on their cars. I have known Nick Dizon, the man behind Vegasdrift for about 10 years, and he always welcomes me with open arms and treats me as family. As some of you may know I used to drift…

The kind of miles where all you see is red, where you only live one lap at a time, glueing your eyes to the AIM as you pass…

Buttonwillow Open test day

Buttonwillow Open test day

Last Friday I was invited to accompany Patrick to California (Buttonwillow raceway). The original reason was to document his journey down there from Las Vegas, and show people what it takes to get yourself to the track,  just how simple, and relatively inexpensive it is to actually track your car.   If you follow FUNCTIONTHEORY on Instagram you will already know that things didn’t go exactly as planned, and he ended up blowing his engine 4 laps into the day. But…
