Billy does Buttonwillow

Billy does Buttonwillow

That’s right! I finally popped my Buttonwillow cherry. Last April, I made the trip down there with Pat to create content for the blog by documenting his journey. Some of you may remember that it didn’t as planned. He ended up blowing his motor on his third lap out, and we had to get his car towed all the way back to Vegas. Let’s just thank the lord that a few days prior to us leaving he had gotten a…

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

This event was randomly added to the Speed ventures schedule only weeks prior to the event. You weren’t even able to register for the event from their home page, you had to register via a link they emailed out. (I know this because I deleted the email and couldn’t register, I had to have Patrick email me the link) It seems the event was added last minute as an addition to the other activities taking place around the LVMS facility…

Streets of Willow Redemption!

Streets of Willow Redemption!

A few weeks back I made my first trip to Willow Springs international Raceway. It was going to be first time ever at Street’s, and my first night event. I was very excited because this was going to be the first event I have done outside of the Vegas area, and it was going to be the first event I did in my 4 door. Going into this event I had put a lot of pressure on myself to get…

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….

Comparing the differences

Comparing the differences

In this post I’m going to be covering the obvious, and maybe not so obvious differences between my two Civics. The timelines of the builds, what I have learned, the pros and cons of each car, and if it’s possible to “overbuild” you car. Lets first start off with some obvious differences… Ones a four door (EK) and ones a hatchback (EG), one having a K20 the other a D16. As most of you should know (if you’ve been keeping…

Hardrace Front and rear camber kit Install/Review

You know how when you drive a brand new car it just feels so nice and crisp? It goes over speed bumps smoothly, it drives so straight and true, it feels so responsive, and any steering input is immediate. It’s nice right? You wish your car could feel this way? Well truth is your car can feel this way. As your car gets older, as the weather and climates of the environment you live in start to take a toll…

Tein Flex Z review/install

So let’s start off with the “must haves” of my purchase… It had to be below 1000 bucks, not too aggressive since it was going on my daily, be readily accessible, from a company with a good reputation, no pillow ball top hats, and no crazy spring rates. 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: change Honda manual trans fluid

How to: change Honda manual trans fluid

Manual trans fluid change. This is probably one of the most overlooked fluid changes out there, I mean really how often do you ever, or hear of people changing it. Even by Honda’s official standards you have already done the coolant twice and the brake fluid once before they “recommend” you change the trans fluid at the 90k service. By that time even the worst of car owners have done 9 oil changes, the average owner will have done 18,…

How to: properly set Honda ignition timing

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…
