Tein Flex Z’s on my 8th gen

Tein Flex Z’s on my 8th gen

Two years ago, I installed my first set of Tein Flex Z’s on my 98 Honda Civic. At that time, I was in the market for some coilovers that were going to be installed on my “budget” daily/track toy and ill admit that the price point of the Tein Flex Z’s is what first lured me in. After doing some research and reading all about them on Tein’s website I decided to go ahead and give them a shot.  You…

Great, Decent, and MEH modifications for an 8th gen

Great, Decent, and MEH modifications for an 8th gen

In my never ending quest to make this car into something it’s not, I decided to add three more modifications that would only further prove how dumb I am. Considering how easy all three of the modifications are, rather than make individual posts for each part I figured I would lump three of them into one big post. Preface: Below you will read about three different modifications I have done to my 8th gen. I will go through the installation…

RPF1’s

RPF1’s

If you have been keeping up with the blog for the past few months, I’m sure you could have seen this one coming. As with all my “daily’s” I can’t just leave them stock no matter how hard I try, even after telling myself it’s a waste of money to fix them up. What person actually needs 3 modified Civic’s? Apparently I do, I mean one of mine I haven’t even driven in a year and the other one only…

Incremental advancements

Incremental advancements

Well, if you’re reading this I’ll assume you are interested in the build of my 8th gen R18, so here goes. If you found yourself here without knowing the backstory, you can click the two links below to get yourself all caught up. What does one wish for when they have a R18 civic? Well, they wish they had an SI of course. When my dad told me he knew someone willing to let go of a civic for a…

How to lower an 8th gen civic

How to lower an 8th gen civic

As it turns out I just can’t drive a stock car. Sure, I already have 2 other cars that are heavily modified so why do I need a third? The only thing I can come up with is, I hate driving a stock car and I always end up wanting to improve its performance in some way or enhance its looks. For me, the few seconds I look at my car as I walk towards, or away from it are…

Knocking the rust off

Knocking the rust off

It’s been 241 days since my last track day, and two weekends ago I was finally able to get out onto the track again. Sure, in California, track days have been going on for some time now, but in the Las Vegas area we haven’t been so lucky. Covid has put a halt to a lot of extracurricular activities in Vegas, which is why when I found out about this event I knew I had to sign up. This event…

My New Daily

My New Daily

Despite being 5 weeks since since I last made a blog post, I have still been busy doing automotive related things. Unfortunately, most of those things do not warrant a blog post, and quite honestly would be pretty boring to my average reader. However, in effort to get some content out, I will attempt to give you a quick recap of how the last five weeks have been going for me. The last blog post that came out on June…

CRV FINALE

CRV FINALE

December 21st 2019. This was the day I picked up the worn out CRV from my dad. I had just two days off of work to get down to my dads house (in Torrance, CA) to not only purchase/pickup the replacement B20 swap from HMO, but also load up the CRV to transport back to my house in Las Vegas. When you try to cram so much into only two days there are bound to be some bumps in the…

K24A MRS: Ever’s insatiable quest to be happy

K24A MRS: Ever’s insatiable quest to be happy

If you’ve been reading the blog long enough or know Ever personally, you’ll know that the man is truly never satisfied. For most, owning an NSX, MRS, R1, and a 4runner daily would be more than enough to keep us satisfied. Not Ever, he actually owns everything mentioned above and he’s still not happy (well not as happy as he should be). Don’t get me wrong, this is not a negative post where we bash Ever for not being content…

John’s (purpose built) CRX

John’s (purpose built) CRX

A 1991 CRX isn’t the most popular choice now-a-days among enthusiasts but 20+ years ago it was a completely different story. The non SI models were among the lightest chassis that Honda had to offer and because of that it was a great candidate for a motor swap. Another reason it was a great candidate for a swap was because in Japan it actually came with a B16 so it wasn’t too difficult to cram a GSR/TypeR swap into it….
