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…

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…

Tein Flex Z review/install

So let’s start off with the “must haves” of my purchase… It had to be below 1000 bucks, not too aggressive since it was going on my daily, be readily accessible, from a company with a good reputation, no pillow ball top hats, and no crazy spring rates. Now that you know the criteria of my purchase I don’t want to get comments about you should have bought this, or that, blah blah blah. Three weeks ago I started to…

How to: change Honda manual trans fluid

How to: change Honda manual trans fluid

Manual trans fluid change. This is probably one of the most overlooked fluid changes out there, I mean really how often do you ever, or hear of people changing it. Even by Honda’s official standards you have already done the coolant twice and the brake fluid once before they “recommend” you change the trans fluid at the 90k service. By that time even the worst of car owners have done 9 oil changes, the average owner will have done 18,…

They could care less about longevity of engines, or whether or not its going to make reliable power. Ever since I have been into cars I have always performed maintenance frequently. Oil changes every 1000 miles, valve adjustments, ignition timing, coolant flush, and trans oil changes every 3000k miles ( or in the case of my race car after every…

You have what engine in there?!

When I first met Nate I’m sure neither of us knew what good friends we would become. It all started 5 years ago or so with motorcycles and some mutual friends that brought us together, you see 5 years ago I had just inherited a Yamaha FZ09 from my brother and I was new to motorcycling. Some longtime friends of mine had mentioned that there was a guy they knew that had just gotten a bike too, and that I should ride with him….
