Since many of the guys that normally participate in the HFF challenge are based in souther California, its a great way to test your skills against some of the premier guys from southern California. However, this year some of those…

PSA about hardrace super tie rods/DIY string alignment

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…

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…

As most people with K20’s know things aren’t cheap, and having your transmission rebuilt is one of them. Since both Eric’s car…

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…

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…
