Take a Ride in the new 2015 Chevy Z06 at Road Atlanta

Very cool in-car view of one hot lap at Road Atlanta with Corvette Racing’s Tommy Milner. It's amazing how fast these stock off the shelf street legal cars are, and how capable they are on a race track. He ends up turning a lap just under 1 minute 30 seconds, which is crazy fast for a full street car, especially for a car in the … [Read more...]

December ’14 Feature of the Month: Aaron Oberle’s 1965 Chevelle “Brown Bruiser”

  Bells, whistles, or air conditioning, this brown bruiser doesn’t have them. Starting life as Grandma’s grocery getter complete with a straight-six and air-cooled powerglide, this Malibu was anything but the bruiser it is today. Aaron Oberle picked this car up from Grandma for a mere $6,000. The paint you see on it is still the original factory paint for the most … [Read more...]

Goodguys 2014 Autumn Get Together in Pleasanton

I don’t usually start an article with a point of contention, but I’m going to do it this time. When I go to the Goodguys show and autocross, I want to see a bunch of eye candy and form over function Pro Class ingenuity on the autocross, my Lateral-G (and Pro-Touring) brothers and sisters, awesome vendor hardware, and a good corndog! Maybe not all in that order, either. And … [Read more...]

Sema 2014: Big Crowds, Great Cars, and Good Friends

While walking the aisles of Hot Rod Alley this year it seemed I couldn't get more than a few feet without running into someone I knew. I guess after 12 years of attending Sema plus my involvement with Lateral-G and car boards in general, I've met a lot of great people. This years show did not disappoint. Looked to be a good crowd and no shortage of great cars and products on … [Read more...]

USCA Optima Recap Day Two: Road Course

I got to the track around 8:30, and they were getting ready to make the final runs for a handful of cars who did not complete the autocross on Saturday. But all eyes were on the road course today, for me this is my favorite event. After the tractor made its final pass with the large broom to remove the last of the debris on the track, they started letting cars out by group to … [Read more...]

The 2014 Lateral-G Meet And Greet Is In The Books

This was our second year at Margaritaville on the strip in Las Vegas. Think of it as a group of buddies getting together for dinner with your own private room and bar. Three full hours to eat and bench race with your friends and fellow members on the Lateral-G forums. The atmosphere was great, and the view of the strip from the floor to ceiling windows was incredible. Everyone … [Read more...]
