Lifted Civic Update #16: Diff Is (Mostly) Mounted! S1Built Diff Mount Install

Lifted Civic Update #15: S1Built Sponsorship Announcement! Plus, Body Work Begins:

I have waited over 3 months to make this announcement... We would like to thank S1Built for sponsoring our project lifted Civic build. These guys were actually our very first sponsor on the build, matter of fact. We did not want to announce them too soon and not...

We are making great progress on our lifted AWD EK Civic! Last week, we ran into an issue with our ECU wiring on the lifted AWD EK Civic. Turns out, the solution is at least 3 weeks out. In the meantime, we are getting to work on the AWD swap in the rear. We started by...

What’s wrong with the Automotive Industry

You know what… yep… I’m gonna beat this dead horse one last time & then I’m done. I will never, ever understand why the new Toyota Supra is a BMW that doesn’t come with a manual transmission or targa top. It's impossible to wrap my head around it. Furthermore -...

Cross Streams // Solid Axle Swap WD21 Nissan Pathfinder

What we’re lookin’ at here - is a solid axle swap 1988 WD21 Nissan Pathfinder. It's awesome! But it’s not easy… or cheap lol.  This straight-axle swapped WD21 Pathfinder belongs to Daniel Pence. He drives it a lot actually, both on & off-road. He’s owned this...

Lifted Bronco Sport – Is it a Real Bronco?

The Bronco Sport isn't even a "real" Bronco... A lot of folks have been skeptical about the off-road capabilities of Ford's new Bronco Sport. I'll be the first to admit, I was a skeptic myself - was. That's until I got the opportunity to experience the Bronco Sport...

Lifted Civic Update #13: Front End 90% COMPLETE! Headed to Gambler 500 TN

Can of Whoop RS

There’s always been something special about the way us car guys look at life... The way we envision the future, the way we calculate risk & investments, and the way we attack problems… all seem to bear the same color to us. When we find an old abandoned body, we...

Soulful Oldschool R32 Skyline

Any of y’all ever get this deal from your dad?? “Save your money… and I’ll double whatever you save.”  Well me personally - I got that deal when I was about 11 years old. And man I saved every dollar of my allowance, Christmas, birthday… all of it. But at the end of...

A Tale of Two Bagged Volkswagens

A Tale of Two Bagged Volkswagens

I bought this perfect spec B7 Passat... Back in 2018, I found an absolute unicorn of a Passat. It was a 2015 model with the dealer optioned Votex body kit. The best part? - A 3.6L VR6 engine. This, in my opinion, is the best engine offered in modern Passats. A few...

Why Small Town Car Shows Are The Best

Why Small Town Car Shows Are The Best

There's something about a local car show... I can remember being in middle school, obsessed with cars. One of the things I looked forward to the most was going to local car shows with my dad. Almost every show we attended was local, so I got to see a lot of the same...

Ford F100 suspension upgrades

Ford F100 suspension upgrades

There’s an extra level of sport in 'doing things with a vehicle' that it was never supposed to do. Auto-crossing a Mazda Miata is fun no doubt. But auto-crossing a ’68 Ford truck is… much more erratic. Like taking the brakes off your bike to save a little weight, or...
