THE EPIC SAGA OF WHEEL SELECTION

THE EPIC SAGA OF WHEEL SELECTION

Im not even sure the best way to start off this post. You see, some people feel like I’m going crazy for writing an article about wheel fitment on a Fit. They say things like… “That’s not very functional” or “now you’re all about stance?” For starters, yes, this is very functional. Angies car isn’t just a cookie cutter civic/integra where all the perfect  recipes are at your finger tips, and making them look good is as easy as searching…

Kaiju Motorsports Grand opening Meet

Kaiju Motorsports Grand opening Meet

Ever since I have lived in Vegas (since 2003) there has always been a void here when it comes to aftermarket parts for any sort of vehicle. I have always “wished” there was a shop in town that would carry top tier parts, fluids, and be knowledgeable or well versed in any type of project you were doing. Yea sure, ordering online is what we all do most of the time anyway. But it’s always such a risk when you’re…

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…

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…

How to detail a NSX

How to detail a NSX

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. From day one, this car has been plagued with light surface scratches and swirl marks from years of hand washing. Most average consumers don’t know any better. Car wash technology and practices have grown leaps and bounds from what it was 20 years ago. Yes, there has always…

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…
