ice cold

i had a nice dinner with my cousin last night before we started drinking way too much for a sunday night. so i wanted to stop for munchies. we were at the ol 7-11 and i looked across the lot at the shell station and caught glimpse of this monster. sitting, idling, purring. the owner was a bit of a jag off but his car was right.

sit down. shut the fuck up.


so we are currently waiting on the schedule for 2010 for everything really, redline, speedventures, willow springs, all of it. i dont really plan on heading to AAA speedway (Roval) for anything other than redline this year. that track can suck my cock.

all these motherfuckers still talking shit about stretched tires and hellafunchtional this and that. idiots, all of em. yeah you can run a 275+ tire all you want. but if youre just driving around on the street, shut the fuck up. and on top of that, what kinda tire is that? oh some piece of shit knockoff brand? well then you need to sit the fuck down.

for example, some guy over the weekend was clownin on the issue of stretched tires and how you cant turn fast with em, this, that and another. yet, when we go through the canyon, hes dead last and waaayyyy too far back. oh, excuse me, im in my stock subaru legacy on all season tires, where was your BMW??? oh thats right, back there....with a sack of excuses.

prosperity and good fortune


tech art i believe. GT Street RS. antonio posted this up on the motormavens tumblr blog. i immediately dropped whatever i had in my hands to stare and drool for a few minutes. im a big fan of porsche, i plan to own one or two in the near future. just waiting things out right now.

money has been tight this year, its been terrible for business. everyone really retracted alot since the whole meltdown with the stock market. and it hit us. not as badly as it could have but we definitely felt it. i am very grateful that we are still up and running. and i look forward to 2010 being a very prosperous year. the year is coming to an end very quickly.

looking back ive had much less projects to take in and that kinda bothers me. looks like i have a few to start with in the new year so ill be happy with that. mainly getting my baby back on the road and getting the 57 pickup hummin. working on an art project too. stay tuned for that one.

swedish chef

inverter.

i posted this up on my facebook today. and decided it needed to be reiterated here. id like to introduce you all to the reynard inverter. powered by a honda 900cc motorcycle engine. and with enough aero to be able to drive upside down. hence the name. built by famous race car chassis company reynard im sure it can handle whatever you throw at it. im in love.

race face (2)



thanks earl. EQH Blog.

race face...



living in so cal, i get more than a fair share of exotic cars. i see them everyday, all day long. doesnt matter where i go, i see more exotics in a day then people do in a year. not really exotic to me anymore. but when i see said cars in race trim, it makes my heart skip a beat, and warms my blood. like the LP-560 whateverthehellthenumber is up above. i love it.

totally unrelated...

over the years ive noticed something about meeting online friends. most are really weird in person. reason for being online friends i guess. they get weird and clingy. well, not all but most do. i have a pretty solid group of friends that ive known for a while, and events with them usually take precedence. simple as that. but said "friends" dont get that, so they blow my shit up tryin to get me to hang out. its like seriously? my ol lady doesnt even blow my shit up, so what makes you think ill want to hang out? and then there are the guilt trips, oh man. yeah, i REALLY love when i get guilt trips from people. oh, cause you were bored with your life, i have to drop what im doing to entertain you right? no, thats not how this works. always complaining about how your friends dont wanna hang out, theres a FUCKING REASON for that. youre just too dumb to notice. maybe im an asshole, maybe not. just dont be clingy, and needy thats all im sayin.

but mucho thanks and love to my friends that i actually like. thats why i keep you monkeys around.

speedventuring.



bit of an LOL kinda weekend. so its confirmed that the spring rates on the KW's for the ISF are junk. even with R compounds the car is all over the place. so currently the car is worse than stock. how does that even happen. onto the LOL part, while sitting around after a session paul walker comes up and starts askin me about my helmet. hahaha. thats right, paul walker. and thats his GT2 up above there. apparently he owns half of AE performance. anyhow, he hung out for a couple sessions and split.

zombie car from texas.



props to gary bonner and his SC for making it onto Speedhunters for this month. hes on CL and goes by 1jz/240sx. sittin on M6 miro wheels and D2 coilovers. most of you fakers wish you could roll like him. i like the extremely well one fender pull on the back, it looks so clean. after it gets painted youd think it was meant to be there from factory.

our work is never over.





i think every forum and site i go to, i see people bashing on rollin slammed, and hellaflush. its mostly people online that have too much time on their hands and just have to hate on something. look, i cant stand lookin at some of your ugly ass rides, but i dont say mean shit to you. although maybe i should, it might snap your ass out of putting ill fitting, and equally ugly wheels on. with a ridiculous ride height. i dont mind stretched tires for street cruisin and the occasional canyon run. which most people can relate to cause well, it seems like getting forum people to a track is like pulling teeth. but on the track i wanna run some meaty tires.

bottom line, i hate people.

gentleman driver.

been a long long month. its finally dying down and i can have some time to relax. SEMA has come and gone, Redline Time Attack has come and gone, all thats left is the 2 speedventures events and no more track time for the year. 2010 looks to be far more ramped up than previous years though. im ok with that. seems like every year is getting more and more intense.

the hemi is about done with all of the machining and honing. all thats left is the crank to go in and we can start the shortblock assemble. rods and pistons are balanced and weighed. the new intake manifold is port matched to the heads. and life is good. heres a pic of the initial inspection for the port matching process.
630 ci. 800 on pump. mated to a 5 speed. good lord.

function over form.

currently an official sponsor to the lexus challenge cars. yes, hellfish racing is a sponsor. not just a blog with delusions of grandeur. as we prep for the 2010 track season, this year shows alot of promise. other than myself, we have Circuit Motorsports, FSR Motorsports, and possibly K&N to start with sponsors. come on out and support. we will be at Redline Time Attack tomorrow Nov. 15th at AAA Speedway in Fontana.

Lexus Challenge (3)




spent the better part of thursday at the roval. bit of an intimate occasion with the new baby from lexus the LFA. christ, say what you will, but that car is what dreams are made of. didnt hurt that scott pruett was the one flogging it around the infield with the lucky few plastered in the seat, praying to whatever god they believe in. our own paul aka t0e got the sick chance to take a ride with him. hell, he even got the ride along the bank at 173. also got a little auto cross fun with the ISF and the Fsport equipped cars.

even had a little time to do a little photoshoot.

streetwise professor

i dont ride fixie. im a fan of wall rides, gap jumps and smooth transitions. i used to have this issue of bike magazine that i loved. it had an article called streetwise, this was back in early 2001 when the whole freeride/street mountain bike movement started gaining ground. pinkbike.com was just firing up with the guys from canada, and companies like kona, rocky mountain, and specialized were pumping out some stout bikes for the scene. i think ive gone through about 9 bikes since i first got into it. not counting the various huffys and schwinns when i was a kid. but this one i love the most.
