New Product Release: Radflo 2.5 Coilovers for 10-14 Raptor
December 11, 2018
Although Ford did an excellent job with the Raptorâs suspension, they had to build everything to a certain cost just like any other vehicle. This means there is room for improvement if you are willing to spend the money on aftermarket components. Radflo Suspension Technology has been around since the 1980s and has built a reputation for tough and versatile dampers, and now theyâve just released their new OEM replacement 2.5 shocks for the 10-14 Raptors!
The days of high revving, naturally aspirated Honda engines are gone. Oddly enough, Honda used the same 1.5L turbo in both the Si and base models, but the Si has over 25 more horsepower. This left enthusiasts who wanted a Civic Hatchback Si a little upset, as the base Hatchback has the same engine, but Honda decided to hold it back. Luckily, uncovering the performance that Honda locked up is very easy. There are two ways to go about tuning your Honda: a full ECU flash or a piggyback style tuner. Our new VR Tuned ECU tuning box is perfect for any Civic owners looking for an easy 50+ horsepower gain.
Lowrance Elite 5 Ti GPS Installation on a Can-Am X3
December 10, 2018
GPS systems in a UTV can be a life saver and extremely useful. Whether you are racing or just cruising the trails, lefts and rights, ups and downs, can all start to look the same. For the Vivid Racing Project Can-Am X3 we chose to install the new Lowrance Elite-5 TI unit to make our travels easier. At first I thought the Lowrance packages were very expensive making the add-on hard to justify. But when I discovered the new Elite-5 TI Lowrance kit is only about $400, it was a no brainer. With all the mods I have in our Can-Am X3 Max, I needed something compact and that can easily be moved or removed. The Elite-5 TI is about the size of an i-Pad Mini with more depth to it. Featuring a full 5 inch wide touchscreen that is color, its extremely easy to use. You can easily load maps, save way points, and follow your trail back to where you started. I found this the best feature while cruising the surrounding areas of the Glamis Sand Dunes heading back to camp.

December 08, 2018
Even though the FK8 Civic Type R is the fastest Type R ever, there is always room for improvement. Since the FK8 is the first Type R to use s turbocharged engine, it opens a world of tuning possibilities. Bolt on parts have a much larger impact on forced induction engines compared to naturally aspirated engines. For this reason, the aftermarket for the FK8 is HUGE. Injen, a world leader in cold air intake systems, has just released their second FK8 Civic Type R intake.
