The Cars of Knox Mountain Hill Climb

by Frank Ewald

There was something for everyone at Leavitt Machinery's Knox Mountain Hill Climb that recently took place in Kelowna, B.C. The spectacular views of Okanagan Lake surrounded by mountains truly set the scene for this event. The cars ranged from open wheel through fully caged track cars to street prepared and then vintage. These cars ranged from obviously well-used track toys to vehicles that looked like they would be more at home at a show and shine placement. Make no mistake, the drivers were all here for one thing: to find their personal best and, just maybe, become the King of the Hill!

Project EP3 Civic Si: Fixing EP3 Bumpsteer with Hardrace

by Mike Kojima

In prior editions of Project EP3 Civic Si, we went over the history of the car- the worst handling Civic made with suspension geometry taken right from the Stream minivan. Well, so far we have gotten rid of squishy rubber and added sway bars with help from Whiteline. We also got rid of the flaccid shocks with a set of coilovers from Fortune Auto. Now we will address bumpsteer issues with Hardrace!

Event Coverage: 2017 Indianapolis 500 Presented by PennGrade Oil, Part 1

by David Zipf

There is no place like Indy.  It’s big, it’s fast, it’s narrow, and the track is like no other on earth.  Even in this modern, high tech world, winning Indy is one of the toughest tasks in motor racing today.  The cars may be much faster and more reliable, but winning Indy in 2017 is still just as tough as it was in 1911.

A Tribute to Nicky Hayden: The Kentucky Kid, The Champion of Champions

by Khiem Dinh

It has been some number of days now since Nicky Hayden passed away in a cycling accident. The world of motorsports still hurts with the void left behind. The Kentucky Kid, as he was known, was special in the high profile world of top-level motorsport athletes. His character, his work ethic, his love of riding and racing, his easy-going personality, and the time he made for his family and fans is what puts Nicky a step above any other athlete in motorsports. It is said over and over Hayden was the nicest guy in motorsports. He was the commensurate professional and never spoke negatively of anyone.

NX GTi-R: Hill Climb Edition

by Frank Ewald

Two years of wait time is over. With the car now running and putting down reasonable horsepower, it was time to dust off my driving gear and check out how rusty my skills had become. The NX GTi-R was pulled out of AES Auto, loaded up on my tow dolly, and started the trek east down the Trans-Canada Highway and Coquihalla Highway to Kelowna, B.C. and the home of Knox Mountain Park. This was the location of my next bucket list adventure, the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb.

Project EP3 Civic Si: Installing Fortune Auto 510 Coilovers!

by Mike Kojima

Over the past few installments of our EP3 project, we have been working on fixing on what is perhaps the car's major weak point, the handling. Previous Civics were known for excellent handling with 4-wheel multi-link suspension. The EP3 however, uses the suspension from a Japanese market Stream van in a really dumb case of parts bin engineering.

by David Zipf

If you’ve followed our coverage of the Indy 500 here for the last couple years, you may have been mistaken for thinking that there isn’t much to do on Indy weekend aside from...you know...watch the race.  But that is where you would be mistaken.  The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has dedicated a lot of time and resources into turning the Indy 500 into a three day event, celebrating tradition, speed, and teamwork.  If you’re planning to attend the 500, plan to call in sick and spend Friday and Saturday enjoying the sights and sounds of Indy.

Analyzing Turn by Turn- the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb Course Technical Analysis

by Frank Ewald

The cover photo is of Wouter Bouman's 916 whp 3-rotor Mazda that put down 916 whp the week prior to the event while. During this anniversary edition of Knox Mountain Hill Climb, Wouter captured the overall victory and set a class record in the process. This is the 60th running of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb hosted by Leavitt Machinery. To this writer's knowledge, this is the oldest continuously running hill climb event in North America. The parkland at the start line quickly changes to the mountainous terrain that you can see in the background. That should give you a hint for what is in store.

Project DC2 Integra - Addressing Gaskets and Maintenance

by Clint Boisdeau

With most DC2 Acura Integras being anywhere from 15 to 20 years old by now, it takes some smart maintenance to keep everything running well and the engine bay clean. Good thing is, most B-series OEM parts are still readily available through several sources. Strategic preventative upkeep can keep Honda B-series engines running for an extremely long time.

So everyone into Hondas just about universally ignores or even hates the dumpy EP3 Civic. The EP3 represents, to most Honda fans the generation of Civic where Honda lost their brand identity and started to make cookie cutter shitboxes.

Nissan NX GTi-R V. 3 Continued

by Frank Ewald

You have either been waiting for a year for this update or you are not even sure of what the NX GTi-R is. Of course, a minority may be saying not again but you will have to endure my writing about my favourite car. For those of you who have been waiting, it has been a challenging couple of years but, with the help of AES Auto, things are moving in the right direction. For those of you who are not familiar with this project, this one owner Nissan NX1600 comes with a pedigree earned in the school of hard knocks. The SR20DET swap took place about five years ago and it has been an ongoing learning process - and I must admit I have made some mistakes along the way. When a cracked oil pump took out the engine in 2015, it was time to sit down and really think through the process.
