Tein Flex Z review/install

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: 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…

You have what engine in there?!

You have what engine in there?!

When I first met Nate I’m sure neither of us knew what good friends we would become. It all started 5 years ago or so with motorcycles and some mutual friends that brought us together, you see 5 years ago I had just inherited a Yamaha FZ09 from my brother and I was new to motorcycling. Some longtime friends of mine had mentioned that there was a guy they knew that had just gotten a bike too, and that I should ride with him….

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

A year ago December, Ever had just gotten back from his tattoo apprenticeship in Washington.  Since he had sold his Tundra to fund his tattoo adventure he no longer had a car that he could drive daily, he was actually just driving around his NSX. Since clearly this was not the best choice for a daily driver, Ever needed a car and even more specifically he needed a Toyota 4Runner. In classic ever fashion he wanted a very specific one…

New Supercar eXperimental

New Supercar eXperimental

  A few years back Ever was presented with an opportunity to go “ALL IN” and try to make the biggest financial mistake thus far. Buying an actual sports car, and were not talking some hopped up civic, 30-year-old 240sx, S2000, Evo, or STI. We are talking about a full on purpose-built exotic/super/track car, one with actual pedigree, one designed in wind tunnel, with power to weight ratio, and braking on the fore front of design, one where an actual…

Perfecting the Perfect

Perfecting the Perfect

As many of you know i do many different kinds of Motorsports, but nothing will ever compare to the love and passion i have for my Honda civic. Since before i even had a license I loved the sound and style of a small sport compact, with that exhaust note that would just drive people up the wall with its annoying high pitched scream that could wake Cleopatra from her grave. these cars really focused on the “power to weight…

Vegas Drift “Sports Land Tamada”

Last weekend Vegas drift put on one of the coolest events they have ever done! they replicated the kart course from Sports Land Tamada, a multi sport venue in Japan that hast multiple events such as, drifting, carting, motorcycle, mountain bike, gymkhana, and more.

My Civic v11.0.2

  February 2017…. I was in a ‘little’ motorcycle accident.  I was off work for about three months, and by the time I was ready to come back from it all my life was spiraling outta control.   Disability checks weren’t comping in, work stuff was falling apart and then right when I got back……the company I have working for my life, a career of 18 years was bought out by another company…Amazon. Needless to say it has been one…

Imperfectly Perfect

Imperfectly Perfect

If you were into imports in the late 90’s or even early 2000’s there was no better car to get than a 1992-95 civic hatchback (except for a Integra type r), call it what you like EG, or EH either way it was the holy grail of being an enthusiast of imports. With its incredible lightness, its ease to work on, pretty much anything off an Integra was a direct bolt on/upgrade. these little civic’s were highly sought after for…
