How to install Origin fabrication S2000 UCA mount gussets

How to install Origin fabrication S2000 UCA mount gussets

Before I get into explaining all about why you would need to get these gussets and how to install them, let me explain why I didn’t post a blog last week. If you read the last blog post, you would know that I was applying for a new job and wasn’t sure when I would be able to do any car projects. I ended up getting that new position, and had to immediately start my new job just 7 days…

3 Dudes 1 Track (Audi Club adventures @SMMR)

3 Dudes 1 Track (Audi Club adventures @SMMR)

Last Friday we all attended our first Audi club event. We were intrigued by this event not only because it was going to be the Andretti 4 mile config, but it was also going to be run as an open test day. This meant that there would be no groups and the only time the track was going to be cold would be for the 1 hour lunch (which was included for us with our registration fee). As events gets…

PCA Track Days AT SMMR

PCA Track Days AT SMMR

Last weekend we closed out our 2019 season at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch by doing the final PCA (Porsche Club of America) HPDE event of the year. This one was a little different than the normal PCA weekends because we actually ran a different configuration. Usually we run the Mansell 3.4:   This time around we were running the Lauda 2.6: Usually, the Mansell will favor higher horsepower cars. This can make it challenging for me in my D16Y8 to…

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…

THE NFR (New Formula Red) CURSE

If you’re somewhat into Honda’s then you will know about, or have at least heard of the “Y-49 Curse.” Y-49 is the color code for the yellow CRX, which has been dubbed by many as a cursed color.

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…

Patrick’s double duty S2000

Patrick’s double duty S2000

I’ve known Patrick now for about 8 years. When I first met him he came rolling up in a Integra with black painted spoon calipers, and black painted Teins. I was appalled that someone would disgrace a spoon caliper like that. He said the reason he was doing it was to be more low-key, which I half way agreed with. But still you don’t dishonor a spoon caliper by changing its appearance, it would be like painting over the Mona…
