“3 Minute Fire”- Cody Loveland revisits Pikes Peak 2013 Crash with FabricationLife

Posted on

Cody Header 3

We have seen his video all over the net, but what you didn’t see is the behind-the-scenes aftermath of Cody “LOVEFAB” Loveland’s fiery collision at Pikes Peak.  Just put yourself in the drivers seat on this wild ride.  It was a brief ride, but extremely dangerous with a vicious crash. This could have been deadly had it not been for top notch safety equipment.  That, and proper chassis fabrication, is the only reason this was not a fatal ride that day in Cody’s used-to-be NSX, now coined Enviate.

Sedrick aka FastGuy builds SFWD Civic

Posted on

Let us start by saying we will call him FastGuy. So remember Sedrick=FastGuy. Aka Straight Outta Brooklyn. 

Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 9.36.21 AM

 

Now that we have got that out of the way, let us introduce to you one of the most outspoken people we get to deal with. Blowing phones up at 2am, running around to get parts like a mad man looking to finish the car, and keeping the photos flowing, FastGuy Racing simply put is madness. To recap a little, Sed had a All Motor build that started up and went well. He hit the wall with that chassis.

Build #1 All Motor K breakout. Not that this car did a ton, but it was the start for Sed.

One week later we had build #2. After that crash into the wall on Sunday, the following week this car was together and ready to run! This build went faster, more parts, more money, and then…. BOOM! Dropped a valve, it was a wrap on that build.

Build #3. FastGuy Racing decides to step up from the All Motor class to Sport Front Wheel Drive.

Known as SFWD, this class is strictly for bad asses these days. This class is made to still have the appearance of a street car. Hell, in some states, it could be! Key points include:

    • Limited to 72mm Turbochargers/2,400lb weight, 67mm Turbochargers/2,200lb weight
    • Air to Air intercoolers only
    • Max tire 25×9
    • Full Original Chassis
    • Full Glass
    • No Sumps
    • Electric fuel pumps only
    • No 1-piece front ends
    • Must have 1 headlamp
    • Stock style suspension only
    • Interior from front seats forward is required (passenger seat and rear seats are allowed to be removed)

It also is found explained by Aaron Bonk here on HondaTuningMagazine.com.

 

Here is the video build up of FastGuy’s new SFWD Civic

Here is another look into FastGuy’s build from a different prospective. These feature some language (NSFW), but you shouldn’t be watching while you are working anyways! Who does that?!!>?? :)

So for this build up to Honda Day, FastGuy has been on a complete tear to get this car finished up, on the Dyno, and ready for competition. Will the car race at Honda Day? We cannot say for sure yet  but the mad dash to finish up in time is definately going on. This guy have probably burnt hundreds of dollars this week alone trying to run around for last minute parts. We do not want the bill for that!

 

Here is a mod list for this SFWD coupe:

  • K20a2 long block
  • AP2 s2000 crank
  • InlinePro rods (Custom specs)
  • CP flat top pistons
  • Webb cams (Custom grind single lobe)
  • AEBS sleeves
  • Ferrera valve train
  • 4piston 153 ported head
  • Source Racing front end
  • Shaved engine bay (done by STS auto design)
  • Strange suspension
  • Nrgtech front subframe
  • DSS PRO level axles
  • SheepeyBuilt side winder manifold
  • Single 60mm Tial waste gate
  • Precision PTE 7285 SFWD legal T4 turbo
  • Garrett 12x24x4.5 intercooler core (Custom end tanks by Full Time Fab)
  • and more…

This week, we had entries featuring Industrial, Exhaust Headers, Race Radiators, and Exhaust Systems. We tried to focus on complete parts rather than 1-10″ sections of welding. The idea was to have featured images that showcase finished products. We will be looking for that this week in our submissions as well. Good luck and submit early!

 

On to the Review!
