Best engineered cars of lemons 3 - the angry hamster

The Best-Engineered Cars of LeMons - #3: The Angry Hamster.

By Dave Coleman

At 1400 lbs and 116 hp, the Angry Hamster has the power/weight ratio of an S2000. It packs a mid-mounted, 10,000-rpm V4 engine mated to a 6-speed sequential dog box, and puts its power down through a limited-slip diff. Weight distribution is a dead-even 50/50, and the wheelbase is nearly a foot shorter than a Lotus Elise's. And all of it was built for $449.

Project Honda Ruckus Part 6: The Final Option, Tuning the Transmission

By Jeff Naeyaert

In our last installment of Project Ruckus we got our super motor tuned and running well, however although our acceleration was vastly improved, we did not see much of an improvement in top speed, only gaining about 3 mph before hitting the 10.500 rpm rev limit. To make matters worse, our Ruckus is now always topped out on the rev limiter. Doubling our power has enabled our bike to zoom right on up to its top speed but once that speed is reached, the engine is screaming at 10,500 rpm continuously. This probably is not the best bet for long life!

Project Honda Ruckus

Ask Sarah-Hey Sarah, what did the cost of all the Phase 3 mods on project Ruckus cost?

By Sarah Forst

If bling isn’t your thing, you can skip some of the pretty stuff and save about $600 but to get to the 50mph, open your wallet. READ ON...

Project Honda Ruckus Part 5, Engine Bottom End

by Jeff Naeyaert

In the previous installment of Project Honda Ruckus, we worked with Dan Paramore of DPR racing to go where no one else had gone before by carefully porting the head of the Honda GET engine to maximize flow, improve combustion and raise the compression ratio.  To follow the progress of Project Ruckus, click here!

Project Ruckus part 4, Building the Ultimate Honda GET Engine

by Jeff Naeyaert

In part 3 of Project Ruckus we applied a bunch of bolt on mods to our bike to reach our goal of 50 mph with decent acceleration.  Now that we have hit 50, we still have some shortcomings to our project.  We feel that 50 MPH is the minimal top speed any street driven machine should have, any less and you end up being a hazard, cars tailgate and road rage may ensue.  At the least, you might get cars tailgating and cutting you off, giving you the finger.

Project Honda Ruckus part 3, 50 mph or bust!

by Jeff Naeyaert

When we last left Project Honda Ruckus, our first performance mods which included a Yoshimura pipe and a Bowls PC20 big bore carburetor kit had increased the top speed of our Ruckus from a pathetic 37 mph stock to a more reasonable 45 mph. However this was not fast enough to safely cruise on the fast streets of Orange County. The acceleration to reach this top speed was pretty lame as well. We had to get more speed, for safety and to be able to smoke the snobby Vespa riders in our area that would turn up their noses at our little Honda.

Industry Press Release

If you are a fan of the late model B-Segment cars, you probably feel like us that the Honda Fit is one of the best of the breed.  It certainly has the best handling.  However the cars in this segment are pretty anemic and the amount of truly effective performance parts for these drivelines has been lacking.  Well now things have changed as KraftWerks is pleased to release their new Supercharger kit for the Honda fit.  If you didn't know, KraftWerks is the brain child of supercharger guru and long time veteran master Honda tuner Oscar Jackson.  If you know Oscar like we do, you can be confident that these are complete and well engineered kits.

Project Honda Ruckus Part 2 - More Stuff, the Next Stage

by Jeff Naeyaert

In our Last edition of Project Ruckus, we worked mainly on getting the handling and braking of our bike up to a standard of reasonable safety, safe enough to handle the mean streets and venture beyond the safety of suburban neighborhoods and the pits at the track. Our bike is still far from our goal of it being able to handle itself on main streets though. For one it’s pitifully slow being barely able to creep up to 37 mph. At this speed the poor Ruck will get run over on the crowded, fast main streets of the South Bay where our office is located. It is also not as cool looking as we would like. So in this edition of Project Ruckus we are going to spiff up the looks of our ride and start working on the issue of power.
