I’m sure some of you are aware of Grange’s.. err.. I mean “Apple Valley Speedway’s” new membership deal. Basically, it’s something like $300 for a year’s worth of open practice days or 200 visits, whichever comes first. So, the plan is to practice once a month, which makes the math go something like this: (each visit = $25).… Read the rest of this now >>
After going thru some diagnostic chores, it was finally time to take the 14 back to Koji for some tuning. Hopefully, with the new cat and cleaned injectors, we could do a full boost tune without knocking.
Previously, we were only able to tune for 13-14 psi before it would start knocking.… Read the rest of this now >>
Here’s the face Eric makes when it’s time to work on his car. Although gruesome, we must agree that this is how we all feel on the inside when it’s time to play the “mechanic game.” “What’s the ‘mechanic game,’ you say?” Well, it’s basically the game where we pretend we know everything about cars and end up braking more stuff than we repair or we repair the cars slower than ever anticipated.… Read the rest of this now >>
So, today I had to take the S14 over to the body shop because the rattling windows were finally starting to really get on my nerves. I guess… that’s what happens when you start doing things like… plugging water leaks in the trunk and fixing the air conditioning. You start to get a little bit more picky about things, like when the doors sound like rattling bird cages whenever you run over a bump in the road.… Read the rest of this now >>
What’s it been, like… 1 or 2 years since the last update? LoL! I guess having broken cars and stuff has kept us out of the “game” for a little while, but we’re back to report on a project that’s been growing for some time now. We give you… Jex’s Ultra Alignment Shop of Norwalk.… Read the rest of this now >>
It’s not too often that I get a chance to surround myself with exotic cars. To be honest, I practically have an ill disinterest in them. A guy like me enjoys cars that are more relatable, and for someone of my meek social status, one could say that these million-dollar symbols of wealth have little for me to identify with.… Read the rest of this now >>
It was a gay o’l time … it was a jolly good time.
The New Year has come and brought us another weekend of problematic install. What we thought would go somewhat smooth went and took a detour. Fear not… we managed to tackle them and finished the install.
Quick recap of how we got here…
I have acquired a 2000 Miata NB.… Read the rest of this now >>
A lot of fun stuff… and not so fun stuff… happened today. It was a good chance for me to capture some more cool in-car footage from my GoPro, and also I finally tested the new engine build on the S14 at the track. With the previous stock build, I was able to get a 1:30 on 595 RSR tires.… Read the rest of this now >>
Technically, I should have been driving a Miata on this day. But unfortunately, it wasn’t ready for tracking. So, I ended up taking my S14 instead, which also was not prepared for a grip event (it had drift tires on it) but was at least mechanically okay. Here are 4 video, I hope you enjoy them.… Read the rest of this now >>
The thing with going to the Balcony… is that it’s just the Balcony. You get a handful of turns to practice car control, and when you have it all figured out, you’re mentally done for the day. And this can happen as soon as… Ohh… lunch time, if you’re good enough.… Read the rest of this now >>
