Gotta Cool It Now – Power Steering and Hard Driving

One of the things I absolutely do not miss about driving my car when it was KA24DE-T powered was the constant leaking from the power steering reservoir after my autox runs. Some people ran a small power steering cooler to help. I was lucky enough to be able to find a custom power steering reservoir […]

It’s… ALIVEEEEEEEE! Kandi 2.0 Grand Re-Opening

It’s been many months since I’ve updated progress on the car, but for good reason! School started picking up again, so the project was kind of on hold for a lot of 2013 & I wanted to have some significant progress before posting again. I also wanted to finish her up and debut her at […]

However, I quickly realized many parts were worn out; looks like spherical bearings on a semi-daily driven car doesn’t last forever. Over the past couple of years, I […]
