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…

A few year ago, Ever bought His NSX. If you’re curious with how it all started, follow the link below. http://functiontheory.com/2018/06/new-supercar-experimental/ It is a great read, very personal, and also lots of photos.

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…
