The Ricer Series - Episode 2 'Texas DC5 All State Meet 2020'

I think the DC5 is one of the most underrated chassis... you don't see many being tracked or driven much anymore.. one reason is because they are sought after for their engine and transmissions... also, they still retain some value.  When tuned correctly, they look and handle amazing.. or so I've heard.  I guess that's what all these guys are meeting up for in Austin.[...]

Final Bout Pre Meet hosted by Mayday Garage - Houston, TX

As I'm typing this, the world is on a Coronavirus pandemic with people canceling events left and right, stocking up on toilet paper for some reason, and just mass hysteria... I get it, it's a crazy big deal and we should all be cautious, but the widespread panic is a bit much tbh.  All types of small businesses and contracts are being slowed down... the economy is jus[...]

We Got Shut Down! - Mayday Garage's 2018 Wekfest Pre-Meet

Mayday Garage's 2018 Wekfest Pre-Meet - Yep, I'm just now posting about it because I have some downtime...

Team 5Star OG 2018 Meet

When is the best time to throw a meet in Houston?  I would have to say April after attending Team 5Star OG 2018 Meet...  The weather was nice and sunny but not too hot.  I would say it's equivalent to a summer in California.  So, how was the turnout of Team 5Star's meet?  Check below for photos and words... If you're not familiar with Team 5Star, they are a bunch o[...]
