One Helluva journey (to buttonwillow)

In the quest to try to come up with new content for the blog, I am always searching for new ideas. After blowing his rear JRZ’s (shock was bottoming out before the actual suspension would be maxed out) on the way down to Chuckwalla a few weeks back, and not being able to run a lap time he was happy with he got new rear suspension, and wanted some redemption. An open test day came up at Buttonwillow, on Friday…

Buttonwillow Open test day

Buttonwillow Open test day

Last Friday I was invited to accompany Patrick to California (Buttonwillow raceway). The original reason was to document his journey down there from Las Vegas, and show people what it takes to get yourself to the track,  just how simple, and relatively inexpensive it is to actually track your car.   If you follow FUNCTIONTHEORY on Instagram you will already know that things didn’t go exactly as planned, and he ended up blowing his engine 4 laps into the day. But…

Headlight restoration

When I see people with a “modified” car driving around with hazy, discolored, yellowish headlights I am instantly judging you. How can you say that you’re an enthusiast if you don’t even care how your car looks. Yes looks aren’t everything, and usually here on FUNCTIONTHEORY looks take a back seat, but everyone wants their car to look somewhat appealing. You spend all your hard-earned money on getting cool wheels, and lowering it which as we know makes the car…

SCCA @ LVMS ORC

Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) has a many race tracks on its facility, and is located very close to any Las Vegan in the valley.

This leaves only the Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch in Pahrump NV, which most people say is too far (yet its only 45-60 min away depending on your location in the valley). As our society only becomes more lazy and only…

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…
