RCO #006 – Shoe String Budget RX-7

By |October 5th, 2017|

Being a fan of RX7’s since my early teen years, I fell in love with my first one at age 13. My Grandfather’s Step son had a beautiful Red 90’s RX7 Turbo II, shod in meshed wheels, and some other goodies to young to remember. But he gave me a ride in it around the neighborhood and I instantly fell in love. With a un-removable grin, I remember telling my mom to take pictures of me with the car, so I could remember that day. (I’m still trying to unearth those old photos) Years after I was fascinated with the car, and started learning about Rotary Engines and what made them different. Matter of fact during that time I started writing about them in my High School Class projects, giving my classmates information back in the 90’s about the difference and why those who own such machines love them differently.  […]

Times Are Changing – Global Time Attack x Motor Massive 2017

By |July 29th, 2017|

With the growth in Time Attack, the other parts of the motoring world has responded. Leading premier company Global Time Attack teamed up again with Motor Mavens/86 Fest to create the first ever Motor Massive. Car Show checked, Vendor Row checked, Auto-X checked, and Time Attack Hell yeah! The chosen facility was none other than Auto Club Speedway in Fontucky (Fontana) California. Home to many races, and events, this one surely didn’t disappoint as it filled up that fast with people and cars from the parking lots to the garage pits. This year we didn’t do a booth, since time and proper product I would have wouldn’t be available on time. But we did manage to make 60 86 Fest x Motolyric Shirts just in time to be sold at the Motor Massive Booths. To our luck all 60 were gone in 6 hours. But that’s another story for another day.  […]

93 Motolyric Snapbacks

By |July 10th, 2017|

Usually I post up a write-up here before we start selling the next product we have. But 2017 has been a lot about taking action and just putting out what we believe is a great quality product. Through the years when we started making our first T-Shirts, we tried and used many different materials. Always experimenting the reliability and usefulness of everything we put out there prior to us selling it. From washing them a 100 times or putting them through the worst types of accidental cleanings. Just to see what the result would be, and therefore understand how long and how valuable our product will be in the outside world.  […]

Big Willow RD3 – Global Time Attack 2017

By |June 15th, 2017|

The expectations were high for me, as days ago a post on the GTA Facebook Group page was stated Roy Narvaez saying he will make it rain with a $10k stack of hundreds if he podiums, but only if he doesn’t get sprayed on with Champagne. Pretty easy to do right, and with people knowing Roy as the person he is, and a very giving guy, I figured yeah he would probably do it. Right away thoughts in my mind of how badly I wanted to get the Motolyric Race Car going these past months, I knew this could be my ticket on some free money. From the night before, till my drive up to Willow Springs Raceway I could smell the cash and wondering where, and how am I gonna pull this off. Making sure I keep an eye on him and be prepared to grab as many 100’s I can when it goes down. But first I had to take care of business and capture the fast cars attending.  […]

FWD Take Over -Global Time Attack Road Atlanta 2017

By |May 31st, 2017|

For the first time at a Global Time Attack event a fwd not only breaks the long standing record, but tops it off by clenching the fastest overall time. Every year at Road Atlanta it seems to change between who to look out for or what to expect. No matter how many times I’ve tried, my predictions never match the results. With my mind set at the usual Unlimited AWD class taking the best time of the day, I search the list for the players. Seeing Brian Faessler return with his Paul’s Automotive Engineering Ford Mustang and the only Pro/Comp entrant, he was extremely fast last year but just got edged out by last year’s winner Jeff Westhphal driving the hard to beat GST Motorsports Subaru Impreza and LYFE Motorsports Nissan GTR driven by Cole Powelson. So off the bat, I figured if it wasn’t going to be Rick MacPherson with his DBW Motorsports GTR or Tony Szirka and his UMS Tuning EVO, or  just maybe one of the Canadians with their oh so powerful Honda’s might do it. But if I placed a bet as if it where a Vegas sports book I would have lost for sure.  […]
