Project Scrap Metal: 5.7 Liters of Organized Chaos

Well I know a lot of people didn't think I would actually finish it this year but here is the LS240 Vert in all its glory. Project scrap metal has come a long way since we last saw it here. Last time I explained what I did and didn't like about the build and well... instead of bailing on the project I did something about it. I really wanted to build a car to tandem with and not have to worry about too much. There was only one answer, a 240sx. I had huge plans at first and picked up an LQ4 block but at the time I really didn't have the cash to finish it that way. I sold that block and built a KA, which was a big mistake. So I sold the KA and picked up an LS1 to do it right, and here is that build!. Click read more to check it out!!

Formula 1 returns to the United States!

Christian here, racefriv didnt have any of their usual crew going to the US Grand Prix, so I agreed to take some pictures and write about it!  The first Formula 1 race I attended was at Indianapolis in 2006.  This was the year after the Michelin fiasco, so tickets were subsidized and affordable for a college intern.  The experience was incredible.  I had been to ALMS races before, but it did not prepare me for the noise of an F1 car.  Sitting on the front straight during the start still stands as one of my favorite motorsport moments ever.  When the FIA announced that F1 was returning to the US, I knew I had to find a way to the race.  I traveled to Austin, Texas, with my friend Ian to celebrate F1 coming to the first purpose built Formula 1 track in the United States.
