April 15th, 2008 - Track

Last Saturday I had an opportunity to join our good friends at MotorStars Oy Ltd at their first test of the all new Honda Challenge 2008 car at the Alastaro racetrack here in Finland. I had been following their progress of building the car for some time now at my visits to their shop and the quality and parts they have put into the new car is simply amazing. I told them I would like to see the car in action when they finally get it done. As the weather took a turn to better, I received a call that they would be testing the car on Saturday (April 12th).

I have owned my Mini for one and a half years now, and have got to know it very well during it. The car has a lot of potential and funfactor, but there were certain things in my Mini that were starting to bother me and needed to be corrected. The goal was to make it more stable in the corners, improve the sounds and of course, add more grunt under the hood.

As the weather is still freezing outside, roads covered with ice and the DSC light keeps blinking in your dash, the carfreaks are preparing for the summer. I’m quite sure, that most of the carfreaks honestly hate winter for the horrible driving conditions it throws at you. You rarely get the same kicks as you do in the summer. But there is also something good in all this too. As there simply is nothing else to do in winter, you have time to surf the internet for various stores and forums, researching for ways to improve your car. Pasi has taken this to the extreme with his E30 M3 project, and has not been seen much after he started working with it. Other carfreaks are also improving their already great rides, maybe not in the same scale as Pasi is, but clearly there is quite a bit going on. The finnish winter is the proving ground for us, although you don’t get to see the results before the summer arrives. I’m sure everybody is anxiously waiting for the summer, I am for sure.

Choosing the right wheels is always one of the hardest choices when it comes to customizing your car. They are one of the most visible changes outside, and represent your styling eye. I spent an considerable amount of time just browsing around for nice looking wheels, when I finally came across the ASA AR-1 rims. Thanks Kaizu for flooding me with all sorts of references from all over the internet. :) Read the rest of this entry »

December 25th, 2006 - Lifestyle

At the very early state of carfreaks activity, we have used web to keep the carfreaks entity alive, to give it a cornerstone to build our petrol filled dreams. The early versions of carfreaks.net were more focused to our members, keeping them up to date what was going on in carfreaks. As time passed by, people outside our group were starting to get curious of the mysterios carfreaks who appeared in the track-days and were spotted shooting photos in various locations in Finland. Who are they?
