Sunday Funday

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2009 by ekhatch

Started off the day rolling to the Ohio Hondas fall meet with Duke. It was about 50 degrees and pretty windy so I wasn’t expecting much of a turn out but it was decent. My camera is every bit as lame as my car so don’t expect much from the pictures, but I did take a bunch. I got to meet Brian and the super cool gang from Team Function and got to see Brian’s graffiti hatch in person. Seeing pictures of it is one thing, seeing it roll down the street is a whole different experience, it is crazy! Bunch of truly great down to earth people who have fun with thier cars and even stuck a Team Function sticker on my car! I’m not even allowed in Jason and Duke’s team and they’re my best friends lol. There were a lot of cool cars to check out but hanging with them was definately the highlight of my day. After the meet we rolled down to the hood to take some pictures and buy crack, I’ll have them up later this week. Let’s take a look at the stats for the day:

cars: 35 ish

people: around 50 maybe

beautifully done turbo K swaps: 2

J swaps: 1

friends made: lots!

homeless kittens abducted from the ghetto: 1

stickers sold: 1

Yea, little disappointed by that last one. I had a big sign on my window about the Melissa Project along with the stickers but only sold 1. Thank you dude whoever you were! It’s all good, it’s $5 we didn’t have yesterday, and that’s what counts. If I have to stand 4 hours in the cold to sell each and every one I’ll do it with a smile on my face.

So shut up and get to the pix already!

If you’re at Import Alliance next weekend be sure to check out Brian’s graffiti hatch, well, you probably won’t have a choice, it tends to stand out!

Cool story about the guy with this widebody turbo NSX, he took his car off his trailer and drove it 150+ miles home from Import Alliance so he could trailer a fellow enthusiast’s car home that broke down. Considering the amount of very high dollar carbon fiber sitting 2 inches off the ground on this car, that really says something, much respect!

It must be J series night here at HL tonight, first turbo J I’ve seen. Is that a DSM sidemount IC?


They Just Don’t Fit

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 26, 2009 by ekhatch

Just to kind of bring what I was saying in the last post back close to home, I love how they don’t fit under the hood, it’s just got a raw badassness to it. I think I read somewhere that Hasport was coming out with new J series mounts that will set the motor down lower, not sure what kind of oil pan clearance that will leave or whether or not you could ride dumped with a setup like that.

SlowMotion Motorsports Open House & Dyno Day

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 16, 2009 by ekhatch

Since Duke woke me up at the crack of dawn and I couldn’t go back to sleep I headed up to Slowmotion Motorsports for their first and hopefully annual open house and dyno day. It was a better turn out than I expected and some nice cars, I didn’t stay long but it seemed to be a really nice event they put on. I sold my good camera last spring to get the silver car back on the road so 2 megapixel point and shoot is what you get, not that it matters because even with a good camera I suck.
