Speedventures x hff_challenge @LVMS

Speedventures x hff_challenge @LVMS

Once a year Speedventures makes its way out to Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) and they bring with them the HFF challenge which often means we get to see more FF cars then we usually see out in Las Vegas. 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…

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…

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

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. As many of you know the internet can be a very helpful place, but it can also be full of misinformation, subjective opinions, and flat-out incorrect answer’s. 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…

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

A year ago December, Ever had just gotten back from his tattoo apprenticeship in Washington.  Since he had sold his Tundra to fund his tattoo adventure he no longer had a car that he could drive daily, he was actually just driving around his NSX. Since clearly this was not the best choice for a daily driver, Ever needed a car and even more specifically he needed a Toyota 4Runner. In classic ever fashion he wanted a very specific one…

New Supercar eXperimental

New Supercar eXperimental

  A few years back Ever was presented with an opportunity to go “ALL IN” and try to make the biggest financial mistake thus far. Buying an actual sports car, and were not talking some hopped up civic, 30-year-old 240sx, S2000, Evo, or STI. We are talking about a full on purpose-built exotic/super/track car, one with actual pedigree, one designed in wind tunnel, with power to weight ratio, and braking on the fore front of design, one where an actual…

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…
