A Day at Sportcar Motion…

So I had nothing really pressing going on during the week and I hadn’t really hung out with my homie Loi Song in awhile so I decided to head down to San Marcos. If you all don’t know Loi, he’s the head honcho over at Sportcar Motion and is responsible for building some of the fastest Hondas in the nation. Last week he mentioned that Skunk2 recently released their new K-series header and I wanted to check it out. I don’t own a k-series or anything Honda related mind you, but I guess I might as well stare at something while I was there…

Rodrez and Jeremy from NWP were already down there pulling the engine from Rodrez’s hatch and wanted to have lunch. I really didn’t bother taking pics of it because nothing special really happened. We ate at Boudin’s and Jeremy and Loi were competing over who could eat the outside of their breadbowl first. Actually, it wasn’t much of a contest because Jeremy was competing with himself. Loi normally eats the outside of the bowl anyway so he finished at his own pace. After that, we headed back to the shop and bullshitted with eachother for a little bit before Rodrez decided he had something better to do and took off. Then I pulled out the camera and snapped some pics of the shop…

I’ve been there plenty of times before but for those of you that haven’t this is what the shop looks like…

The hall is filled with plaques of previous features from well-known customer cars as well as Loi’s previous vehicles…

Here’s a look inside the “showroom” area…

Loi also cashing in on all the latest ricer trends…. =P

One of the sections was strictly for Skunk2 stuff and had all of their newer products…

Speaking of Skunk2, here’s their new K-series header that I mentioned earlier. The craftsmanship on this header is beautiful. Makes me wish I had a K but I’m broke and Honda-less….oh and my car has a flat, a bend, and it’s not getting fixed anytime either…anyways back to the header…

Here’s a shot of the B-series version…

I walked outside to see what Loi was doing and he was showing his time attack hatchback to some guys….

Yes that is a custom front splitter made out of wood…whatever works right? If you’re wondering, yes, this is the same Civic that won 1st place in the Limited FF class at last years Super Lap Battle…

These are my old 16×8 Advan RGs that I once had on my old Accord. I honestly thought that Loi was a little crazy when he first offered to trade me his brand new Regamaster Evos for these things but I guess it worked out for him because I no longer have the Evos and he’s put these wheels to work. He had them on his previous time attack DC2 and now he’s still running them on his current car. They’re also still in perfect shape too. You figure after all this time with it being used all the time on track cars that they would have at least a nick or something. They look as good as the day I gave them to him…

K26 hybrid under the hood, with BDL accessories…

The Greddy oil catch can was recently added from what Loi was telling me…Other than that, most of it remains the same. Most of you have probably just seen it from the outside on the track though so here’s some fancy artsy close-ups of it…

Damn, I didn’t realize I took so many pics and it’s getting pretty late. That and some of you guys who view this on your phone probably hate me right now for freezing your phones from all the images loading…

I’ll put up the rest later. The other pics are mostly cars that are inside and some projects that are upcoming that Sportcar Motion plans to campaign this year…stay tuned…
