An open test day came up at Buttonwillow, on Friday…

Headlight restoration

When I see people with a “modified” car driving around with hazy, discolored, yellowish headlights I am instantly judging you. How can you say that you’re an enthusiast if you don’t even care how your car looks. Yes looks aren’t everything, and usually here on FUNCTIONTHEORY looks take a back seat, but everyone wants their car to look somewhat appealing. You spend all your hard-earned money on getting cool wheels, and lowering it which as we know makes the car…

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

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…

Night Drives

Night Drives

The best way to enjoy a car is to drive a car. 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. Only the driver can directly feel the feed back from the steering wheel as he goes through a turn, and only…
