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. This is all apart of the scenes evolution, and people trying to be different or stay relevant by having a “track car” that is insanely built but will never see the track. Or, it only does one day at the track never getting close to its full potential and then all of a sudden it’s justifiably a track car….

THE MRS THAT ALMOST WASN’T

THE MRS THAT ALMOST WASN’T

What does a man that already has a mid-engine super car buy, when he wants a beater to play around with? Well, he buys another Mid-engine sports car of course, A Toyota MRS to be exact. You see if anyone reading this knows Ever, then they will understand why he chose to get another Mid-engine sports car. Why did he not just buy a Civic or Integra? Those are all over the internet going for super cheap, not to mention…

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…

THE NFR (New Formula Red) CURSE

If you’re somewhat into Honda’s then you will know about, or have at least heard of the “Y-49 Curse.” Y-49 is the color code for the yellow CRX, which has been dubbed by many as a cursed color. If you google “Y-49 curse” you will come across countless stories about how people that own yellow CRX’s with the color code Y-49 always have bad things mysteriously happening to their cars. There is even a whole community of owners that are…

Chester’s FK8

Chester’s FK8

A few weeks ago at the Vegas Drift event I stumbled across Chester’s Civic Type R, which at the time I did not know it was Chester’s or even who Chester was. It was parked inside the event next to a few other drift cars, all incognito just like a wolf amongst sheep, and for me it was amazing to see such a tastefully built FK8 here in Vegas. When I did a write up on the Vegas Drift event…

Catch can tech, how to, theories, and install on S2000

Catch can tech, how to, theories, and install on S2000

Lets talk catch cans, and why you need one.  A catch can, put simply will help relieve excess crank case pressure that has built up in your engine. This excess pressure is caused by blow by. Blow by is the small amount of air that will sneak past your piston rings during the compression stroke of the engine. All engines get blow by, new and old. This is why all cars come equipped with a PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system…

Kaiju Motorsports Grand opening Meet

Ever since I have lived in Vegas (since 2003) there has always been a void here when it comes to aftermarket parts for any sort of vehicle. I have always “wished” there was a shop in town that would carry top tier parts, fluids, and be knowledgeable or well versed in any type of project you were doing. Yea sure, ordering online is what we all do most of the time anyway. But it’s always such a risk when you’re…

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…
