Replace FUNCTIONTHEORY: 06/01/2011 - 07/01/2011





oh man i bet when larry chen and joe ayala made this video they had no idea it would become such a controversial video, making headlines and local nightly news all over the world. who would have thought that getting stuck in dallas fortworth airport, after a layover returning from formula d in florida would make them instant celebs most people in the drift world know who they are, but now everyone knows who they are.while they have managed to raise questions about airport security, who really cares. they have not hurt anyone or anything. we dont need more airport security we dont even need the amount we have now. please lets just keep this a funny video with 2 bored guys stuck in an airport.

STUCK from Joe Ayala on Vimeo.




got my PSM down pipe, installed clutch and turbo lines. still waiting on many more parts that have been out of stock to trickle in. just wanted to share my happy with you.



Check out Vann's super clean, and functional car. he has put together the correct recipe for this car. not just slapping parts together to make it work. he actually matted the correct gsr tranny to a b20 thats the first i have seen. most people just assume that the b16 tranny is better since its shorter, a very comon mistake. or people just try to get the cheap ass ls tranny. any how... solid car with a solid parts list. what more could you ask for... well maybe some wheels and a vtec head lol... no worries he has got that coming up next. we will update when he gets it done. but for now please enjoy his beautiful car.

Well this is a very special function certified. I know we have had domestics in the past, but this one is a classic example of making what you have work. This car fits the function theory to a T. It's not your typical car that you would fix up. Honda, Toyota, Nissan, but in fact a chevy cavalier. James' 97 z24 is not your average car. When you hear fixed up cavalier You dont realy know what to think, will it be stupid like some Midwestern teenagers fast and furious domestic wanna be, or will it be one of the most amazing home built all by hand cars you have seen in a while. We are going to go with the latter one. Big congrats to James for making this car a more then qualified candidate for being function certified. Enough with the words here is all the specs and pictures.enjoy!!!
