Whether you appreciate track-focused builds with purpose-driven go-fast bits, or instead prefer the look of perfectly stanced-out street cars, chances are you are a car enthusiast. And as a true enthusiast, you may have at one point or another thought about modifying your own car, or even to pick up a dedicated project car to serve as a base platform upon which you would build your own ‘masterpiece’.

Believe it or not, this type of conversation happens quite frequently at 11Tenths between our team and current/prospective clients. And it is during these countless discussions, that we’ve come up with some things for people to consider as they plan out and execute their own projects.

Goals. This is a really important starting point that many people lose focus of as they continue their build, or worse, don’t even take the time to think about it to begin with. What are your goals for the car? Is it going to be a daily driver during the week, and track weapon on the weekend? Do you plan on keeping it street legal? Is it going to be a trailer queen that will be transported from one event to the next? Do you plan on driving it year-round? Or will it be stored during the winter season only to be pulled out on warm sunny days? These are all important questions to think about as they will guide your overall build and dictate your parts selection. This will save you from mistakenly buying parts that don’t align with our overall objectives for the build.

Budget. Before you lower your inhibitions and loosen your wallet for the first few purchases, you should have a budget in mind. Far too often, people will impulsively start purchasing parts for their car before having a good grasp of their overall budgeted spend. Setting up a concrete budget up front will allow you to look at the entire build and start allocating monies to specific portions of it. It will also enable you to prioritize specific areas of the build, should you have conflicting purchases that put you outside of your budget. Finally, if used properly, a budget should be able to prevent you from ending up in the worst possible spot – having a partially complete car only to realize you have maxed out your budget.

Reliability. While this applies to a number of scenarios, here are just 2 to think about. If you daily drive the car, you want to ensure that you are not adding modifications to the detriment of reliability. Otherwise not only will you get frustrated with car fairly quickly, you’ll be using your CAA card (or worse spend money) getting it towed every time it breaks down. If you are building a car doing a lot of track time, you need to factor in the added stresses being placed on the car lap after lap. This includes having all the supporting mods in place. For example, if you have a turbo-ed car, or are turning up the boost or adding bigger turbos on a factory turbo-ed model, you will need to have adequate cooling in place; which means a bigger intercooler and possibly an oil cooler. Otherwise heat soak will set in very quickly and you’ll find that a few hot laps weren’t worth loosing the entire session for.

Sacrifices. Oftentimes improving many traits (speed, uniqueness/looks, handling) of a vehicle results in sacrificing things previously taken for granted.  That stanced-out show car looks hella-sweet when parked, but how stressful was it driving to the “meet” with 1″ ground clearance, fenders rubbing & catless fart-burbles fearing an MTO/Police impoundment while cruising below the speed limit?  Doing that V12 swap earns Nationwide recognition, but sitting in traffic on a scorching-hot August afternoon really makes your reconsider the A/C delete.  Tearing out the entire wiring harness of the new track toy saved you 90lbs in wiring, but now there is no ABS or DSC and the VANOS doesn’t work correctly. While the sacrifices will be different and specific to your build, you should take note of them to ensure they are worth the ‘anticipated’ smiles the end product will give you.

Recurring costs. While this will typically fall outside of your project budget, so to speak, it should be something you pay close attention to as it will affect the ongoing operating costs you will have to cover. That new black paint job looks amazing, but going to a detailer for a 2-stage polish before every big car-show gets expensive. Those TrofeoR tires get the best lap times, but buying a set every month requires a bank robbery. 800whp on the E85-Ethenol on an N54 is impressive, but sourcing that fuel locally proves impossible and it breaks down on a weekly basis, plus you can count on 1 hand how many drives it didn’t go into limp mode. While recurring costs might not be something on your radar yet, it is something you should take a look at during your build phase to ensure you don’t end up with a car too costly to run.

Resale. Are you “investing” into a platform that will garner you some sort of return, or at least hold its principal reasonably well (such as a vintage 911, MK4 Supra, E30 M3, FD-RX7, etc.), or are you prepared to kiss that mod-money goodbye when it come time for resale? While this is a hard question to ask yourself, its an important one – its easy to get excited to spend money on a project you are excited about in that moment. As time goes by, and the excitement dwindles, it could start to become a bitter pill to swallow (if you have not prepared yourself for it)

There you have it, a quick list of things that you should think about when you’re pondering your next build. In fact, it might even be something to consider on your current build if you feel you have lost focus. If there are any other lingering questions you have that aren’t covered on this list, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and concerns.

Sometimes the lesser car is almost the same as the greater. This means with a little bit of tuning you can have a better car for the money. But that really depends on perspective and the usage of the car. There are multiple examples from BMW to Hyundai and Porsche to Honda where sometimes there isn’t much of a change and other times it is drastic. Have a listen. We also chat about our Tech’s projects which are awe inspiring in their own right!


Listen to the Podcast below:

Driving or storing your car in Winter – here is what our experts had to say:

1. Tires

It’s been said before, and will be for a LONG TIME. Tires are the most important factor on your car. Literally “where the rubber meets to road”. Contact patches the size of your hand are what do all the stop, go and turning!So with that said if you’re driving in the winter make sure to dress accordingly! Summer tires are useless under 7 degrees celsius and all seasons aren’t far off. Winter tires are the best bet (even cheaper ones) than no winter tires at all. The rubber is formulated for the cooler temperatures and generally have special tread designs specific to snow and ice. Don’t neglect the tire pressures either for safety or your wallet’s sake. Under-inflated or overinflated tires come with their own driving and wear characteristics. Just do what the manual says and inflate them as required.

Tires also need to be checked before storage. Make sure that if you’re storing your summer tires don’t put them directly on concrete or stack them directly on top of each other. Neither is good for the side wall.Keep in mind that storing your car and also lead to flat spots. While this is debated and there are all sorts of ‘preventive’ things such as increasing tire pressure, the most common practices are; foam mats, old yoga mats or dedicated flat spot preventing storage blocks under all 4 tires. Some people prefer to jack the car up off the ground for the winter but it’s contested that this isn’t great for your suspension.


2. Oil

Do you really want to worry about doing an oil change on a bad weather day? Have you thought about the range of temperatures that your car has to sit in? Cold to warm to cold. How about all the idling in the coffee shop drive through? If you’re close to an oil change, get it out of the way now before later, plus your mechanic will appreciate a dry and salt free undercarriage!

While changing your oil isn’t really necessary since your car will sit most of the winter, just keep in mind in the spring it should be top priority. Tell your phone or personal robot to have an oil change as a priority in the spring. Oil breaks down two ways. By using it and making it dirty or through time by breaking down is lubrication and detergent properties. Maybe a post it note in the cup holder wouldn’t be a bad idea.Most importantly don’t do that mid-winter I miss you start-up and idle. You car was not meant to sit for months and then idle for 10 minutes and then be shut off. Also wasn’t meant to be revved cold!!! The nature of how an engine is supposed to operate is with driving. Heat doesn’t properly get into all the parts for their operating tolerances. Oil and coolant doesn’t circulate as it would in regular driving and warm up situations. You can argue that it’s not that bad, but it’s tough to argue that it’s good.


3. Wiper Blades

Similar to the oil, do you want to inspect or change them in the freezing cold? More over, do you want to find out when they are not work while driving down the highway in a winter storm? Check your blades, at minimum wipe them clean with a rag. Replace if necessary.

Give em a wipe, less to do in the spring.


4. Battery

You might have caught on to the trend here. Don’t be stuck not checking. A battery sees the harshest conditions in the winter. Cold start ups are hard and the colder it is that more energy and ‘crank energy’ is required.  A lot of cars these days come with a starter for the winter so you can get that car toasty before you get into it. Don’t sacrifice the feature, your battery should operate at 12.6 volts or above and should be 13.7-14.7 when the engine is running. If you don’t know how to check your instruments or the battery itself, get your mechanic to check it.

Tender the battery. Either in the car or out of it. A battery will still discharge, so for its health putting it on a tender that is ‘smart’ and changes the delivery of charge is great for ensuring longer life and a battery ready for the spring start up. Keep in mind a dry area is also preferable.


5. The Inspection

Driving and Storage
Do a visual inspection of the car. Lights, brakes, belts, seals and everything else we’ve already mentioned. Be prepared to drive or store your car. Taking an interest in it now will go a long way down the road. If you need help make the time to bring it in. Prepare for surprises and make your winter more enjoyable.

When 24 Hours of Le Mans isn’t enough you just get back on the highway and go to then next track…or two.


Listen to the Podcast below:



Many a car person’s bucket lists include a trip to the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. 11Tenths went there in 2019 and it was an experience! Racing, traffic jams, crepes and dare I say some track side Schnitzel (oh wait, that’s part 2)

Listen to the Podcast below:

Did you know that roughly one year ago Bugatti announced that it would no longer be chasing speed records with their cars? Ironically enough, this was freshly after achieving a 304 Mph run. Now even though it was not with a production car you could buy at a local dealership, it was a prototype based on the road going Chiron. They listed all sorts of reasons why they had this sudden change of heart; most of which can be boiled down to one single sentiment – they think outright top speed is unnecessary. How ironic, since that was their whole mantra with the Veyron to begin with.

I’d like to posit another theory (and what I believe to be the more likely) theory. I believe that through the grapevine, they had become aware that an ‘American’ with big biceps and a can-do attitude was working on a hypercar with a top speed target far beyond what their fleet could achieve. So, they picked up their baguettes and bratwurst and hobbled back into their leather lined dens. Backing out long before the comparison was even going to take place. Fast forward a year, and that aforementioned ‘American’ proved to be a force to reckon with. As of October 2020 the SSC Tuatara positively DESTROYED every single record out there for production ‘road’ cars. This car hit 331Mph or 530Km/h. Incredible.

Now most of us are aware that the truth of realizing such speed all comes down to two engineering feats. Co-efficient of drag and power. Yes, there are additional factors such as suspension travel, tires being able to maintain their structural integrity, and the list goes on. However, these aside, it really does come down to these 2 aforementioned factors. And as with most other challenges, throw enough money at any problem and you will come up with a solution. The Tuatara is no exception to the rule.

Power, you ask? The Tuatara has a twin-turbo V8 capable of delivering an asphalt scorching 1,750hp. The coefficient of drag is surprisingly disappointing, however. With a 0.279 coefficient of drag, it is bested by the likes of the Subaru BRZ, Hyundai Elantra and even the 1998 model year S-Class from Mercedes (for crying out loud)! The list of cars with better coefficient of drag figures runs longs, and features entry level consumer cars all the way to concept prototypes. But I guess with anything, throw enough horsepower into the mix, and it can literally overpower other less-desired areas. But don’t feel too bad for the Tuatara, it did beat the Ferrari F50 (Cd of 37.2), Koenigsegg CCX (Cd of 32.0) and the McLaren F1 (Cd of 0.32), among others.

That said, watching the Tuatara’s record-breaking run, the car looked incredibly stable. Not as dramatic as I would have expected. Might as well thank the computational fluid dynamics of modern CAD software, right?

Here’s the thing. As impressive as these runs are, beyond production numbers where do you draw the line for these road car records? Could 11Tenths not theoretically weld together a 5 foot long pointy nose cone for a BMW M2, then boost the motor until the head bolts stretch out of the bonnet? Boom top speed. The impressiveness is the complete package of these hypercars. Koenigsegg is a great example of a top speed car that can go around a corner but also be functional enough to act as a grand tourer. We need to learn more about the Tuatara, but I’m sure the goal is similar – a car that is not just about top speed but incredible handling as well.

So, is top speed a joke and just a battle of math and engineering? Of course not.

I’ll tell you what it is: Marketing.
