EVO X Clutch install, repairs, and upgrades.



We just finished up a clutch install and repairs on this Mitsubishi EVO X!  This car came in with a clutch that was barely drivable.  So we set to work getting the transmission out so we could inspect the issue and replace the clutch with something better, what we found is an issue that’s common with aftermarket clutch replacements!

Tuning a new 2017 STI, Clogged cats, & Found power.


We recently tuned a new 2017 STI for a local customer, and we ran into some issues tuning the car that we wanted to pass on to our readers. We'll be covering a problem we have seen in quite a few Subarus, and going over changes made to the 2015+ STI that makes fueling an issue with breathing mods.  Read on for good tuning info!

Repair, Test, Repeat.


   It has been almost a year since I made my first post. Life has been busy and repairs plenty for 2016. After traveling almost 40,000 miles in a year and reaching 100.000 miles on the odometer, it was time to replace the head gaskets. Back in March, I stopped into Kinetic Motor Works in Hampstead, NH. It has been my main service shop since Orlando is quite the distance away.


The Justang EVO II & The $2016 Grassroots Challenge



The $2016 Grassroots Motorsports Challenge has come and gone.  We competed and gave it our best.



We laughed.



We cried.



We got covered in 93 octane.



All-in-all we had a great time and we achieved our goal; Ultimate Autocross Domination.  That’s right, we competed and outright won the autocross placing 1st by almost a full second.  We were very pleased with that result and it was gratifying to see the car do so well after all the hard work we put into improving it over the past year.  Combining a 1993 Subaru Justy and a 1999 Mustang Cobra was no easy task to begin with, and trying to improve on that combo, with almost no budget, was not easy. So, how did the rest of the event go?  Read on!

2016 Autocross Has Begun!

     After a several month winter hibernation, I have returned to the racing scene, and thus to my blog posts! I know you all missed hearing about all the adventures my dear STI and I have gone on. But first we need to recap last year.
