Blurry picture, but it’s all I could get on my phone atm. How I miss driving my Integra. Daily driving, inspirated driving, driving at 1 A.M. in the morning shifting into 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so forth(haha.) Anyone that’s a true car enthusiast can appreciate the mechanics, design, and overall research and development that it takes to build a car. I truly miss driving my car and revving it to 9k and just hear it sing. I have driven many cars in my life. While some are smooth, luxurious, powerful and right out just raw. Still, nothing compares to the B series that I have in my own car that I have built from the ground up. Nothing on this car has been left the same since the day 1. And I’m not stating this to boast myself in any way.
From the cockpit, suspension, chassis braces, wheels and one of the most crucial parts which are brakes.
Everything works as one single unit, utilizing every single component on the car and laying it out on the pavement.
I drive my car and I can just feel it all pull together. For some that are reading this post, or rant I would say, might not understand, and it saddens me that some never will.
It’s like no other feeling in the world, and I can guarantee that.
Driving down the mountain using the curved chicane to catch an apex right next to the guard rail and just feel all the g-force around every single corner and somehow you can just read the mountain and feel it’s grooves to where you get rid of that “scared” feeling and just drift into this different state of mind.
Or, after a warmup lap at the track, and after that final turn, you rev up, drop a gear, and gun it down the straight away before the next corner. No other feeling like it, to drive and push your car for what it was built to do, maxing out all of your gearing and pushing your car and your very own self, to the limit.
I’m glad I have gotten the chance to learn and grow with my car.
A fast car doesn’t score the best lap times, nor does the best driver. It takes both of these to get the best experience and time. A driver that knows his car, knows how to handle his suspension, brakes, gearing, understeer, oversteer, and whatever the road shoots at him.
“A level 10 car, and a level 1 driver will never even out.”
P. S. for those who are wondering, my car has been down for a while as I am working on rebuilding some engine components and my brakes as well. One major thing I have been focusing/working on is the overall balance of my car. Stay posted.
