A couple of weeks ago we loaded up and headed to Hastings NE for 18 hours of chump car racing. After pulling the car out of storage after a year of sitting, we had a lot of major work to do which took a couple of weeks of prep. The initial outing at Autobahn raceway was not good, the guys lost a fuel pump and had some running issues that they could not figure out. Our outing to Hastings was …

Wes picked up this little bike a few months ago to start his own restomod project. He is going Cafe Racer theme with this one, so it should be pretty cool! This is probably one of the roughest bikes we have torn down so far. Everything was rusted together quite badly. It all cleaned up nicely in the bead blaster though, and the current state is looking great. This bike has lived a rough life. I believe this bike’s engine …

Hooked up BWT to the trailer on Thursday and headed down to Oklahoma City to Oklahoma Foreign auto parts to pick up some much needed parts. Probably not good to get spoiled driving a brand new rig that can roast the tires with a 24 foot trailer behind it. It just don’t care what is behind it. HP sells cars, torque wins races 🙂 Jager ready to roll! 5 down, 5 back, and a few hanging out at OK foreign. …

A couple weeks ago after racing at MAM, we came home via a trip to the breeder. We had planned to get a new puppy in September from the same breeder we got Tia from, but the dog we were breeding now has Diabetes that got so bad she had to be put down 🙁 Her name was Jäger. So we found another breeder north of KC and went to check them out on the way home. Hint: Don’t go …

Todd and I both bought a HUGE upgrade for our LS1 944’s this year. The cars are stupid fast on the race track, and in certain areas of the track, also a bit scary due to the lightweight and high speeds. We decided to tackle that this spring and see what it would do. We called up Kyle and Cody of Brooks Motorsports and had them work their magic. Their stuff runs on the NASA TT3 national champs car, so …

Since the Honey Badger is having custom pistons made we are at a standstill on that project, so after seeing the orange bike, Mike brought his 1978 CT70 that he has had since new by for a refresh! This bike has about 3500 miles on it, so it is well used! His kids grew up on it, so it has it’s share of dents and bent handle bars etc, but in true Mike fashion, everything has been well cared for …

With the orange CT70 out of the way, we found another beat up example to get running for Valerie. This example is a 1972 CT70HK1. The H models came with the 4 speed manual engine, but well, that is out of here. Wes was able to get that engine up and running after a little carb work, so it will be set aside for another project. To help with the learning process of being on a bike, we decided to …

This little 997S came into the shop a few weeks back to rejuvenate some life back into it and the owner’s love for the car! After years of owning the same car, everyone hits that wall where they are tired of the same car with the same performance. Many will trade off and buy a newer model, dropping a lot of money in the process. Some will add a little pep to the car to make it seem like a …

Ok, I have to get back to blogging on a regular basis. Sometimes the projects seem redundant and uninteresting to me, but I forget others enjoy seeing these cars in various states of repair. We have been in full blown track season mode, daily driver business is rocking, and the performance modification business is starting to pick up speed after a few years of being stagnant with the economy. Vlad the impaler came in for some preventative maintenance before heading …

Blog has been a little slow as things have been crazy to say the least. I have had the CT70 done with the exception of the clutch cable to arrive, but I got that in this week, on the bike, and she has her first 4 trouble free miles on her 🙂 I waited for quite awhile for the parts to arrive to rebuild the front forks. I needed the piston spacer sleeves on both sides which were on backorder. …
