Koni Yellow Sport vs Race

Did you know that there are actually two Koni Yellow models? Most Yellows are the 8041 Sport model, but racers often want a shock that can handle even higher spring rates and lower drops, which is where the 8041 Race shock comes in. While the Sports are said to max out around at 400-600 lbs/in spring rates, depending on who you talk to, their Race shocks have the popular SPSS3 valving and can do up…

Race Car Video Setup

We all love racing and track day videos, but setting up cameras in our race cars is usually a last-minute rush job… Too many other things to do first! Sometimes we get lucky and happen to choose a good camera angle and settings, but more often we end up not seeing all of the action because our camera setup wasn’t optimal. So, after years of many of us learning the hard way and missing out…

After a long stressful week of pulling all-nighters to get our cars ready for wheel-to-wheel racing, some of which ended up being race legal but still not quite finished, we had the first ever Front4 W2W race on Saturday afternoon! It was the first of four races this weekend, so there was plenty of opportunity for rematches once we learned our competitors’ strategies.…

Honda B20 Engine Info & Tips

Instead of replacing an Integra’s engine with another B18 (1.8L), several of us have opted for a B20 (2.0L) from the first generation Honda CR-V. These engines tend to be easier to find in good condition, are potentially less expensive, and of course they make more power and torque due to being larger displacement. We’ve learned a few things along the way, and hope that this will save you some time and frustration:   Basic…
