If you own a C7 Corvette, you know very well the car's achilles heel is the cooling system – often going into limp mode when driven hard on the track, or even just cruising the canyons on a hot day.
We worked with @motoiq to track-test our high performance triple-pass aluminum radiator for the C7 – a must have if you're headed to summer track days. 🌞
Usually when driving the car hard or on track, water temps are ~220°F and quickly climb to 230°F, before the car goes into limp mode. 👎
When tested at the track in 100°F, the water temp with a pro-am driver behind the wheel, never got past 208°F. 👍

It was Spring 2019, and I was on my way to work, dodging cars through traffic on the infamous 91 freeway in Southern California. This was pre-COVID-19, so there were tons of semi trucks and commuters clogging up all six lanes of Calfornia concrete. On my usual +/- 1 hour drive to and from work, the light bulb went off my head…
What is a TOPCAR Stinger GTR? …Basically, you take a standard Porsche 991 Turbo S and turn the volume up to 11.
This build features TOPCAR’s Stinger GTR 18-piece body kit including custom front and rear bumpers, fenders, a custom diffuser and a ton of carbon fiber pieces. Painted in a BMW Frozen Grey color with yellow accents, both the interior and exterior have just the right amount of stealth and sport. This is a uniquely customized 991 Turbo S, created specifically for TOPCAR’s customer, Felix Ferro.
Recently, it seems it’s hard to find true enthusiasts in the car scene – someone that not only enjoys experiencing building a car and what’s left of the Southern California scene, but someone that truly can call it their passion and want to share that passion with others… Steve Samuel (@soofy619) is an exception to this.
Big news flooded the car scene back in 2017. For Honda fans, it was huge. The United States was getting its first ever Honda Civic Type R.
For decades, die-hard Honda fans have been importing Type R vehicles, parts, and other components. The company’s high-performance roots are unlike any other, and have been survived by a group of true “grassroots” enthusiasts since the Integra Type R – until the return of the NSX and release of the CTR.
The sound of a V8’s cold start, the satisfying feeling of a perfectly rev-matched downshift, or banging off a car’s rev limiter, sliding through a corner – all things that cannot be fully experienced without the internal combustion engine.
Anyone that has truly experienced one, knows M cars are a class of their own. Sure, they sit within that popular luxury-performance segment alongside the -V lineup, AMGs, and more – but, unlike many others, they still sort of have that raw feeling when you’re behind the wheel that makes them so much more fun to drive than their plush counterparts.

The BMW E30 was your typical entry-level luxury car that started off with a two-door sedan style body. BMW eventually evolved the E30 into four door sedan models, convertibles and estate (“Wagon”) models in its later years. The E30 was the first 3 series to offer not only the estate and sedan body styles, but the first 3 series to offer a diesel engine and all-wheel drive models with the 325iX. The BMW Z1 roadster was also based on the E30 platform. Let’s not forget that the FIRST BMW M3 was built on the E30 platform (you can check out the world famous BMW E30 M3 with an S55 swap cooled by CSF here).
Wekfest is one of southern California’s most premier import car shows. This is CSF’s last show of the year as we focus on pushing for the end of summer in our busiest time of year and preparing for the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The 2019 Wekfest show was held on August 4th at the LA Convention Center. Bringing enthusiasts from all over California to compete against some of the best builds in the industry to take home the iconic trophy and bragging rights.
Summer is in full effect and not only is it the busiest time of the year for us here at CSF, but it’s the peak of the car show season. From the cars and coffee weekly meetups and the countless car shows taking place in the summer heat, it’s finally good to be indoors with the AC on blast. Spocom 2019 was a huge success, CSF brought the RUF 996 RTurbo Porsche and the S55 swapped BMW E30 to stage at our booth, both cars rolling in with the radiator fans blasting after just finishing a shoot with Matt Farah’s Smoking Tire, One-Take, check out the video HERE. This year’s show took place in a larger section at the Anaheim Convention Center compared to the previous years. I would think the spacing would be a bit more spread out due to the space, but I was wrong. They took advantage of the extra space and filled every nook and cranny.
