BOOM BAP

Yoooo!!! Press play!

Ya hear that?! That’s that BOOM BAP! The shit that KRS-ONE was preaching about to the ignorant fucks back in the days.

You see the background?! Yo Matt, if you’re reading this, don’t that shit remind you of Sac PD? Rolling up on you on the waterfront and shit? Hahaha! If you live or been to Elk Grove with a modified car, you know all about that shit too! HAHA!
Anyway…

As I was saying yesterday, I installed my new bucket seat: A Buddy Club P1 Version 2 in wide. This has to be the best bucket seat I’ve ever sat in. Hands down, it’s super comfortable and the ergonomics is phenomenal. I purchased the wide because… well to be honest, I got tired of always crushing my junk getting into a seat that’s made for like a 32 waist (I’m a size H, for Husky.) With the wide seat, I have extra leg room which means room for my junk to chill and relax.

For reference, the wide version can fit up to a 36 waist. I sat in a standard Recaro SPG before and I fit fine. Super snug but if you plan on wearing thick clothes with a jacket, it might be a little too tight. With the Buddy Club wide seat, I can sit comfortably with layers and a jacket. The PCI seat rails accepted the wide seat perfectly as well.

I’ve always liked Buddy Club. I have their special edition shift knob and now their bucket seat. I plan to purchase more of their parts in the future. (Sponsorship please?) I remember hearing about their parts back in the early 2000’s but of course they’ve been around before that. I had to whip out the Hyper Rev Vol. 7 for these pics:

That issue was released back in 1998. When I heard of them in the early 2000’s, they already had their engine internal parts out, which is their performance line of camshafts. I know a lot of people in the US have reviewed their entry cams, Spec 3 and Spec 3+, as “ok” performance camshafts. However, IIRC I remember when I was learning how to dyno tune, I walked up to the shop where I would eventually start working at, and old boy was tuning a circuit car that was using Spec 3+ with 13:1 cr. I remember looking at the dyno graph at the end of the session and that shit read 230whp on a dynojet. I don’t remember what else it had internally but I do remember it was an EG hatch with a built B20V and probably on race gas.

I feel that if you have the “just right” combo, you can get some good gains from their “entry level” camshafts. If you look up their Type IV cams, those numbers are up and above the 220whp mark. Moreover, I came across this thread that kinda validates my view of having the right combo, which is key: https://honda-tech.com/forums/all-motor-naturally-aspirated-44/simple-b20-vtec-dyno-inside-3220625/

You read that right. Cam gears are set at 0,0. I even chatted with the owner about his build and even he was shocked at the gains. Like I said, right combo and then add one hell of a tuner. It is possible. Sometimes you don’t need big cams to make great usable power. I plan to play with their camshafts in the near future. My experience with their Spec 3+ was years ago; dropped into a stock GSR with bolt ons. It had some good mid range and was plenty of fun. Here is a dyno graph from Katman, comparing his graph with Dylan’s EG from back in 2004.

But enough with their power adders. Buddy Club has good quality parts. Their light weight P1 wheels are the shit too! Ok, I don’t want this post to sound like an advertisement so I will end it here. Peace!

BOOM BAP!

What is sleep?

That’s what I’ve been asking myself lately. Got me feeling like a cat, looking like I’m “always tired” and shit. But in the end, it’s worth it, especially if you’re a hard worker.

Speaking of cats, I purchased these dope stickers from Triple Cat Deluxe:

This one reminds me of the cat from Sailor Moon. Mrs. Runner loves this one lol

😼

“Aye yo, waddup Run?! How you feeling?”

And that’s an understatement by the way. When you are working long hours, you gotta ask yourself “what is sleep?” Cat naps has been my best friends when it comes to getting my energy back. It’s also hard to fit anything into your schedule, like chores, grocery shopping, and WORKING ON YOUR CAR. I started up the ol’ Runner the other day and when he warmed up I smelled coolant… I popped the hood, did a thorough inspection and found this:

Looks like the intake manifold gasket… I thought the Hondata heat shield gaskets are supposed to last forever? Well, nothing lasts forever unfortunately! I won’t know for sure until I take the intake manifold off, but from the looks of it, there might be a crack on the gasket

Whatever the issue may be, it can and will be fixed. The real question is, how do I fit the repair into my schedule? 🤔

Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…

Legend.
That’s the best way to describe this album. This will always continue to blow minds lyrically. Today marks it’s 22nd anniversary since it dropped back in 1995.

I like to use music as a medium; a way to describe and relate to a situation. I said in a previous post that the Infamous album molded the Private Runner’s oath.
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… is one of the many lyrical soundtracks for me and Tougel. Every time I listen to this album it brings back memories of chilling at Tougel’s pad, working on cars and talking about shit that’s on our chest; talking about the moves we need to make in life in order for us to grow.

“We gotta move God, we gotta move God, we gotta migrate. Get the f-, get the fuck outta New York, yaknowhatI’msayin?”
– Ghostface


“I’m not tryna just be sitting on motherfucking 200 thou and acting like I’ma just be a drug dealer all my life son. I got bigger and better plans son.”
– Raekwon

In an interview from 2010 Raekwon states, “When we sat down and did ‘Striving for Perfection,’ we knew how important the intro to an album is. We were coming in as young, scrambling niggas. We had visions—goals and dreams. And when we was saying certain things, shit was relating to niggas’ lives for real. But at the end of the day, we was just trying to let it be known that, Yo, we gonna do this and we ain’t gonna stop. If we fall off, we fall off. But if we get on, this is only the beginning.”

Pretty much how I felt when I formed the Private Runners and made Tougel the first member.


I remember sitting in Tougel’s garage talking to him about shit like that. Preaching the PVT philosophy and him relating to shit. The album playing in the background…

“Get the fuck outta New York Sacramento, yaknowhatI’msayin?” Would be my version. Now I live in San Diego and Tougel lives in Nagoya.

“No man, can judge for another.
But each man must weigh all facts and circumstances,
and find truth in his own judgment of righteousness.
See, the way to evil, balance equality in no man.
For no man is good and bad at the same time.
Either you good, or you bad”

 

If I was a Satanist

would y’all still be my friend and/or follow this blog?

The funny thing is if I was a Satanist, a high percent of people would probably cast me away like a leper. But yet, that same percentage of people will still follow manipulating dicks who do whatever it takes to benefit themselves. We all seen it and still see it, you know, The type of people who will screw over anyone and everyone as long they get what they want. You guessed it: FUCKBOYS.

This webpage is a certified #nofuckboysallowed blog. If this offends you then unfollow and block me from all social media 😀
(I thought I filtered out a lot of fuckboys but I guess I missed some lol)

HAHAHAHA Bitchez!
