K SWAP GUIDE (THE PROLOGUE)

K SWAP GUIDE (THE PROLOGUE)

About 2 years ago Patrick and I were at our local track (Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch) in Pahrump NV.  I was having a great day driving at my peak, while Pat was trying to work through some minor issues. Once he had worked all the kinks out he managed to get a few laps in before catastrophe struck! He pulled off the track into our pit and as he pulled close you could hear the unmistakable sound of rod knock….

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…

PSA about hardrace super tie rods/DIY string alignment

In the quest for faster lap times we always assume that race car stuff is the best and that is what we should upgrade to. Aero, anti-bump-steer, BBK, expensive suspension, spherical this and heim that. It’s easy for us to look at other people’s builds, guys who are fast, or crazy time attack cars, and try to mimic what they are doing because we assume if they are “fast” or have a “big” following they know how to build a…

10k words about brakes! everything you need to know about every part of your brake system.

I wanted to dive into the world of brakes, and share some of the experiences I’ve encountered over the years.

With this blog post I want to try to help clarify any misinformation and just help you understand how every aspect of you braking system plays a key role in how the whole…

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…

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

If you read the last blog post about my brother’s (Eric) car, you’ll know he was half way back to D.C. from Oklahoma when his transmission decided to give up the ghost. You can read all about it here>>>>> http://functiontheory.com/2018/11/erics-car-we-can-rebuild-we-have-the-technology/ So hopefully you’re all caught up to date or, none of this going forward will make much sense.

Eric’s car… we can rebuild, we have the technology.

Eric’s car… we can rebuild, we have the technology.

Travel back with me to a much greater time, a time when life was simpler. A time when we didn’t have K20’s and we knew not of the struggles that would lay ahead. The year 2014, Eric had run into some money and he wanted to make a car that would pull double duty, Not only did he need a daily driver but also a fast exciting car. Since Eric was a baby he was involved in all my automotive debauchery…

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…
