By |2019-06-25T09:22:19-05:00June 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

In its 24th season, the IndyCar Series is quite the spectacle to see in person. We spent this past weekend with our VIP guests at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI taking in all the action. Plus, we weren’t just able to see it in person, but we got to meet drivers, get in the pits, and even explore an IndyCar with a full hands-on tour! Our brand new Morrie’s Tiny Honda served as our “hub” for the weekend. We had catered lunches, great trackside viewing from the top, and our racing sim inside. We had such an amazing time that we’re already planning for the next event! So check out all the fun by scrolling through our photo tour. […]

Although this race does not have nearly as much glamour as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it is easily just as grueling if not even far more grueling than the French race. The race in question is the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, otherwise known as the Nurburgring 24. This past weekend, racing teams from all around the world pulled one intense all nighter in hopes of taking home a victory from this famed track. […]

Over this past weekend, the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans took place and most of us are rather disappointed we could not attend. This legendary race is a grueling form of auto racing and can only be performed by the best drivers and teams. It is rather amazing that these teams can keep these high end racecars in a suitable form for a full 24 hours of endurance racing. […]

Replacing the Clutch Cable on a Porsche 914

By |2019-06-11T08:39:18-05:00June 11th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I should preface this by saying I’m not a mechanic. We have 25+ cars here at MHCC, but it’s rare that we pick up some tools and dig into something that’s not straight forward repairs. That being said when it’s my own vehicle and I have time to work on something, I’m going to give it my best college try. So the clutch cable conveniently snapped right outside the warehouse full of tools, and not driving down the highway, which I was thankful for timing wise. In worse news though, I’m not a certified Porsche mechanic so this wasn’t going to be something I’ve done before. So I grabbed my Clymer Manual and ordered a new clutch cable from 914rubber.com for around $23. That was it. One part, one job, one goal. Fix the 914 clutch cable and get this rectangle hot rod back on the road. […]

F1 is in a decline. To some it may seem fine but to many, it is constantly tumbling downhill. Hamilton and Mercedes dominance is turning the sport into a monopoly that is boring and near unbearable to watch in full. The Canadian Grand Prix has not helped with this. After Vettel lost minor control and went into the grass, he re-entered the track, in the best manor that he could, half pushing Hamilton almost into the wall. After a few minutes, the incident was put under review and Vettel was given a 5 second penalty, causing him to lose the race and give Hamilton the win. Check out the incident here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqhX-ZzPhzo   Toyota has been rather sneaky these past few months. As the all new Supra starts to hit dealers soon, some people have been lucky enough to get theirs a little earlier than others. With the acclaimed 335hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, what is their not to love? Well apparently there is even more to love as Toyota has been rather relax with those power figures. After customers and journalists have put the Supra on a dyno, they have found that the car produces more power than Toyota has been claiming. The team found the Supra to be producing 332hp and 387lb-ft of torque to the wheels, not the crank like Toyota's numbers have been claiming. Read the full story here. Tuner Evo is a car show in short. But it generally is one that displays [...]
