Default 949Racing 6UL 15x8 wheels, Hankook R-S3 225/45/15

I have been eyeballing these wheels for a really long time. I ordered them when they redid the whole design (gen 4). I ordered them in July 14' and didn't get to pick them up until December 14'. It was a long wait but well worth it. I ordered the 6UL 15x8 in charcoal also got the matching black anodized valves, valve caps and lug nuts. They are only 11.6 lbs each, very light! So when it came to ordering my tires Hankook had pulled the R-S3 to redo the design if i am remembering correctly, no one could get them in the US. John was able to get the first set of R-S3 in the country delivered straight from the ship to my car! It was my Birthday gift from him as well, lets just say it was a great birthday! lol Took my tires to get mounted at the local America's Tires and told them to not eff them up or else! lol No the usual i told them to clamp from the outside instead from the inside. Ended up the guy mounting and balancing had a Miata with the same 6UL's so he took care of us. Then he asked how we got R-S3's because no one had them yet, he was like i work at a tire place and i can't even get them. lol

The last time she ever looked like this...


Picked up at 949Racing facility




Unboxing




949Racing lug nuts

First mockup of the wheels on my car


Steamrollin' for days

Not a bad view...

Default Added A new member to the Family - 08' Civic Si

Officially around a year ago i made the decisions that it was time to turn my Integra into a race car and pick up a daily driver. To much hard work for it to be left outside among the crazy world. So probably 6 months before i bought my civic i said to myself if i find the right car the integra will not be street driven except to the track. Best decision I ever made. This car is comfy and i don't need to do nothing to it. Love it because i can still go on drives and run errands in comfort. Big thumbs up for this car. I thought i would share since it is a big part of my timeline.

Here is just a few pictures and a video of our adventures during the 1st year that i have owned Violet!

Delilah and Violet


















Did i mention my cars love tunnels? lol (video clip)

Default OEM oil pan, baffle plates welded by Designcraft Fab, new safety gear

Since I am going to be tracking the car a lot I don't want oil starvation to become an issue. So i decided to have some baffle plates welded in my new oil pan. The oil pan baffle plates are made by Fastline Performance. Designcraft Fab welded the baffle plates in.


Brand new OEM Honda oil pan


Old crusty sludgy oil pan


Took it to Designcraft Fab to get welded


Beautiful welds by Designcraft Fab


Installing new oil pan





I also picked up new safety gear. There is a place that is local to me in Huntington Beach called Sube Sports. They have everything there in regards to safety equipment! You can try on helmets, gloves, seats, check out steering wheels and racing suits. The staff there is VERY knowledgeable in safety so if you have questions don't hesitate to ask, even if you think its stupid ask it anyways. Safety is their specialty i mean i had A LOT of questions and he was questioning me and i came out with the right equipment for what i want to do. My helmet is an Arai GP-5W SA2015, with a clear shield, it also has the drilled out holes for the HANS anchors. Later i will be installing the anchors I also picked up some Alpinestars gloves Tech 1-ZX, very comfortable. I tell you its the smallest things that make a BIG difference. I compared all of my new stuff to the old helmet and gloves and nothing compares. A very good investment on my part to get some proper safety equipment. You can never cheap out on this stuff. I use a Puma helmet bag to travel with everything fits real good, you could also add other items such ass cleaning rag, head sock etc etc.
