CSFs 300HP NA RSX: Part 1

Giving New Life to the Daily

Written by Ravi Dolwani, Owner of CSF Race

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 headโ€ฆ

In The News: CSF’s F10 M5

The 630hp Daily Driver That Means Business

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 โ€“ but, unlike many others, they still sort of have that raw feeling when youโ€™re behind the wheel that makes them so much more fun to drive than their plush counterparts.

SpeedHunters x CSF โ€“ Old & Cool with a BMW E30

Just Because Youโ€™re Old, Doesnโ€™t Mean You Canโ€™t Be COOL

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 (โ€œWagonโ€) 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. Letโ€™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).

CSF x Spocom 2019

CSF COOLS the best in SHOW BIZ

Summer is in full effect and not only is it the busiest time of the year for us here at CSF, but itโ€™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, itโ€™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 yearโ€™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.ย
