- The Art of Engine Warm Up -
Warming up the engine is not something any team crew could do. Because it's
not only about warming up, but it's also a procedure to check the condition
of the engine before the car goes on to the race track.
Usually, the warm up process is performed by a specific mechanic through
out the season. This mechanic is likely to be an engine mechanic who knows
everything about the engine, and he has his own way of testing it using his
own eyes, ears, and even nose.
Open the throttle in various speed (quick/slow), try that at different rev
levels, maintain that rev point, and listen what each of them sound like.
He will also check around the engine room to observe any leak of oil, and
sometimes even check the smell to see if the gas is burned properly.
Through out this process, the mechanic will compare the data and his
"sense" with his experience from the past to diagnose the condition. That
is why, not any team crew could perform this task.
This video is only a minute long, but the actual warm up takes 5 to 10
minutes depending on the climate (in cold weather they need more time).
They would usually do this half an hour before the car gets on the track,
because if it's earlier than this the engine will become cold, and if it's
later, they won't have time to deal with any problems found.

Honda NSX Concept-GT
What if you are the only one who has the wrong tool to fight with, while
everyone else has something right? This is exactly the situation Honda is
about to face in the 2014 Super GT series.
Chassis of DTM is purely designed for FR racing cars - a chassis destined
to work when an engine is mounted on the front. But Honda will put engine
on the rear to make it MR, and even add a racing hybrid system to it. Why
do this? Most people think that Honda just wants to race with a vehicle of
features that their new NSX will have. Well, that's not everything.
The extreme kind of race cars, like the ones in Super GT or DTM, are almost
never built over their production model cars. An engineer of Nissan in
Super GT series says that the only real common part between GT500 GT-R and
the production R35 is the "door knob". All other parts of the vehicle are
mere imitation of the production model just to keep the resemblance. Race
cars in these categories are created with completely different materials,
developed by a different team, and built in a different factory. There
almost nothing in common between the two cars.
With that in mind, we are close to understanding what is Honda trying to do
with this NSX Concept-GT. Mount an engine on the rear of FR chassis, add a
hybrid racing system of their own, and still race trying to compete with
others with better condition. The race is not actually about the car
itself, but it is the place where manufactures and teams show their spirit
of challenge, test their own ideas and skills, to prove who is the best in
creating new things. If you are complaining about NSX Concept-GT having a
2.0L engine, or becoming smaller in size compared to HSV, you are only
seeing the surface of this race. I recommend that you go see a production
It's true that currently Honda is lacking lineup of sports cars. But it's
only about the production cars, and they have never abandoned their spirit
in racing. After 2009 when they stopped producing S2000, they came up with
HSV that does not exist anywhere in the world except on race track. They
fought equally to Toyota and Nissan and won series championship. Now with
the new NSX-GT in 2014, they will start a new story of challenge. Let's
not just see "what they make", but also see "how they think" to improve
their unique race car and fight against other manufactures. Hopefully in
the near future, they'll produce a new sports car filled with that spirit.

Lexus ISF Meisterschaft Exhaust
*ATTENTION* I'm going to be selling this Exhaust! Message me for details or if
This ISF has the Meisterschaft catback Exhaust with the Meisterschaft midsection
(section 1 pipe)
In my opinion and by many others that have heard the car, it is by far the
best sounding/loudest Exhaust made for
the F. The GTC means it contains a controllable EV system which allows you
to control your Exhaust flow and also
Exhaust sound by a wireless remote

FIRST DRIVE! 2015 Lexus RC F
After a 15 year absence from having a coupe in their lineup, Lexus launches
the 2015 RC F, High-Performance Sport Coupe, to rival the BMW M4, Audi RS5
and Mercedes-Benz C63. With 467 horsepower, this V8-powered
track-ready car is poised and ready to make an impact.
2011 Lexus ISF 6 Piston Brakes Painted F Blue, Custom Logo - Plus bonus Smoke!
in anticipation of my new wheels that are being custom made for this car, i
wanted to change the color of the brake calipers. I love the color and I
figured since they didnt have a blue ISF on the lot when i got this one,
that this would fill the "void" just fine for me :D The new wheels, as
stated in the video will be 20" Black on black 3 piece wheels with an
offset. They should be ready next week.
In the meantime, while i wait for my wheels to be finished, i called up Roy
Devore, the man responsible for painting my Tahoe and Chickens Hoopty Caddy
(search candy blue Escalade in my vids). He didnt even hesitate and came
right over. After looking at them closely, it was determined that we could
paint them completely without taking them off. I honestly didnt want to
mess with pulling them off the car anyway since it would be a pain in the
ass. As you can see, it turned out great! Having my own lift really
helped and Roy was able to hit the brakes inside and out with no problem.
We had some custom logo's made for them and they turned out perfect.
Special thanks to Roy for doing a spectacular job, as usual!
