Night Drives

The best way to enjoy a car is to drive a car. Only the driver can truly feel this sensation, the joy of applying pressure to your right foot and getting a direct reaction as you rev it through the RPM's knowing you are solely responsible for the power and sound it produces only to shift milliseconds before redline. Only the driver can directly feel the feed back from the steering wheel as he goes through a turn, and only the driver can truly feel as one with machine. After all the driver truly is the secret ingredient in the workings of a car, because if it wasn't for the driver you would  basically just have big electric generator. The driver is the key element to making the car an amazing car or just a basic car, for he has the ability to apex the turn correctly, apply the correct amount of throttle, shift at just the right moment in the power band, and apply the correct amount of brake. knowing when and how to exploit these elements of a car separate the Ricers from the true enthusiasts. I believe bridging the gap between ricer and enthusiast comes from within ones self, the feeling they get when they drive their car, and the passion behind driving their car. for instance if you are only concerned about how many likes you get, magazines you get featured in, and the increasing the value of your car based solely on its popularity. then this would make you a ricer. Someone that is a truly passionate  enthusiast would be more interested in the performance of his car, improving driving techniques, driving the car on canyon roads or track with out fear wrecking the car because after all the passion is in the build, and the feelings you get when you stiffen your chassis, add more braking power, or increase power. going out and driving the car after adding some new modification can be a very rewarding thing.

The point I'm trying to make is that its hard to load your friend(s) in your car and take them out for a spirited drive, they just won't have as much fun as you the driver will be having. this leads into my post "Night Drives." All enthusiasts love to drive their cars weather is be on the street or on the track sometimes you just want to "go for a drive" you know it will be therapy for you, you know it can help you get through a tough time or relive stress or just cheer you up. everyone knows that the darker and later it is the less people that will be out, this theory makes what is normally a crowded road during the day that at night becomes a desolate highway pretty much all to your self. the best way to enjoy these "Night Drives" is to invite your friends that have other modified cars, so they can enjoy the driving sensation privately in their own cars, but you can stop at gas stations, and restaurants to discuss how the drive has been going for each other, or ways to improve your driving skill, or the OH SHIT moments you might have had. in my opinion there is no better way to experience the thrill of driving, and having good company than doing just this.

here are some pictures from the other night.

Athazagoraphobia

My civic
                   As I come into the home stretch portion of my K-swap I took a moment to reflect on why this has been such a time consuming swap. Nearing 2 years of not driving my civic, I have almost completely lost touch with cars. Motorcycling has pretty much taken over my life, helped influence my friends to get motorcycles, or to get more serious with motorcycles. after acquiring my Brothers FZ 09 in may of 2014 my love of motorcycling began to explode, almost exactly 2 years later in April of 2016 I purchased this...

Untitled

A 2016 R1M, which I purchased with track days in mind. I ended up catching the track day bug which directly affected the amount of money going in to the K-swap. It ended up being zero money for K swaps, and all money towards motorcycle track days. At the risk of babbling ill spare you the details, and jump into the Civic part of this post. 


As the civic sits today it will only need... Wiring harness, Kpro, Exhaust, and Primary O2 sensor. My goal is to have it ready for the Porsche club track day in march. Once i get the civic all the way driving i will do a complete write up on it. For now please enjoy these awesome pictures Ever snapped of my neglected project.

Track Daze!

In December ever purchased an NSX! since then he has been turning it into an even more impressive car than Honda designed. This weekend was its inaugural track day event, and It was also another momentous weekend because Patrick debuted his freshly K swapped civic.  While patrick had encounterd a few small glitches with his tune, and a bad TPS. Ever's car performed flawlessly without even a minor hiccup. While the two of them were out on track enjoying their cars i was behind the lens trying to resurect FUNCTIONTHEORY.COM. This event was put on by the LVRPCA Las Vegas Region Porsche Club of America, and took place a spring mountain motorsports race track in Pahrump NV. Ever wasn't the only one with a mid engined super car, as you can see in the pictures below there was definitely some people with money out there.

Below are some of my favorites, and to see the other 200+ click the flickr links below. if you hover over day 1 and day two you can scroll through all the pictures, or just click each album to view in large format.
