Hybrid Racing Shifter Review and Install

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. It’s the same thing as sports players that endorse products. Like I’m supposed to believe that because someone drinks red bull, they are good at what they do. If that were the case then we could all just drink red bull and be super stars. A Social Media Influencer is defined as:  a…

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.

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.

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…

Whats Up with ERIC’s Car?! plus k20 how to install.

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: 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…
