Racing Secrets Revealed

Delay Dilemma

by Roger

First and foremost, my apologies for the complete lack of new content these past few weeks. As much as I'd love to cite personal life taking over or work taking priority, the reality is that none of it has anything to do with it. I've just been futterly failing at getting adequate photos of the Prelude's underbody for the Building a Honda Prelude Racecar series.

Yes, it sounds like pedantic nonsensery, but the exhaust is such a critical piece of the whole power puzzle for the H23A powered Prelude. Robert put so much time and effort into designing this one-off exhaust (did I mention that no one sells this as an off the shelf part?) that I feel like I have to get some pictures that will at least do half of it justice. Fortunately, the weather is getting much warmer here in the Mid-Atlantic region, so I'll hopefully have those photos and some more details for you very soon.

In the meantime, I'm planning to do a two-part review of a new acquisition arrived over the weekend: my new Tenhulzen Automotive 4-wheel alignment system.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Tenhulzen system, it's a portable alignment rack that measures caster, camber, toe and thrust angle across all four wheels of any race or street car in your very own driveway or garage. The manufacturer claims that this system is accurate enough to compete with professional alignment racks at a tiny fraction of the price. Stay tuned to find out how this system measures up against the competition, and more importantly, whether it meets the needs of the amateur racer.
