SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

This event was randomly added to the Speed ventures schedule only weeks prior to the event. You weren’t even able to register for the event from their home page, you had to register via a link they emailed out. (I know this because I deleted the email and couldn’t register, I had to have Patrick email me the link) It seems the event was added last minute as an addition to the other activities taking place around the LVMS facility…

Hybrid Racing Shifter Review and Install

Hybrid Racing Shifter Review and Install

In today’s world of social media, we have become so used to validating someone’s credibility by basing how many followers they have to how knowledgeable they are. It’s the same thing as sports players that endorse products. Like I’m supposed to believe that because someone drinks red bull, they are good at what they do. If that were the case then we could all just drink red bull and be super stars. A Social Media Influencer is defined as:  a…

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…

However, this year some of those…

Patrick’s (track car) Integra

Patrick’s (track car) Integra

You’ve seen the feature of his S2000… Now let’s dive into the build of his FF track car. Patrick has had this car for almost 6 years now and we aren’t talking about just regular driving miles. No, we are talking all out, complete lack of respect for, maximum track attack miles. The kind of miles where all you see is red, where you only live one lap at a time, glueing your eyes to the AIM as you pass…

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…

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…

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…
