You see, when you make a car capable of going faster before you increase its ability to stop in shorter distances, you’re asking for trouble. But you can’t really make a car stop too fast. There is an order to almost everything in life, so let me drive this point home one more time. Start your performance mods with the brakes. Bra ... read more

What To Do If Your Engine Overheats

What To Do If Your Engine Overheats

The engine is the heart of your vehicle and is vital to your vehicle’s overall operation. When your vehicle’s engine overheats, it essentially stops working and irreversible damage can quickly occur. Engine overheating is never something that you want to have to deal with, especially when it happens when you’re on the road. Let’s look at some of the reasons that engine overheating can occur, how to handle it, and how to prevent it. Why do engines overheat?
