Winter is quickly approaching here in Buffalo NY. That means it’s time for my yearly undercoating. I use a company called Rustkote and highly recommend it as it’s one of the least-messy products I’ve seen in this field. https://www.rustkote.com

Always Point Out Downed Cones. Always Point Out Downed Cones.

I was really looking forward to yesterdays Autocross. After roughly 2.5 months of so-so results while constantly adjusting alignment and damper settings of my Koni 2812's, I finally feel like I have my RX-8 about 90% ‘dialed in’ now.

Bought a Thing. (Again) Bought a Thing. (Again)

They say “Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results”. Well the people who know me well would certainly equate my obsession with cars with ‘Insanity’.

Buying a Car Sight-Unseen and Pre-Purchase Inspections?? Buying a Car Sight-Unseen and Pre-Purchase Inspections??

I have been expanding my searches lately for a new vehicle. The kinds of cars that I want seem to be few and far between locally to me. This means I might have to take a blind leap of faith and plunk down cash on something that I won’t be in the seat of until I have already purchased, or have nearly purchased it.

So I find a package at my door this morning that was overnighted from Bendpack:

Tool Review: The QuickJack.  Is it as Good as a Real Lift? Or is it Just an Expensive Set of Jack Stands? Tool Review: The QuickJack.  Is it as Good as a Real Lift? Or is it Just an Expensive Set of Jack Stands?

I’ve always wanted my own vehicle lift. Unfortunately, I don’t have the space or that Tavarish money for one. Fortunately, I came across a product that, for me at least, provides me with enough lifting capacity to accomplish 90% of what I would use a real lift for: The QuickJack Car-Lift System

The Mazda RX-8: One of the Best, Worst Cars: A Buyers Guide The Mazda RX-8: One of the Best, Worst Cars: A Buyers Guide

I love my Mazda RX-8. It’s a car that I truly love driving and working on like nothing else that I have owned. I am also well aware that this car has its issues and is not for everyone.
