Insurance Is Necessary
Everybody who drives knows that insurance is a must. Accidents are a fact of life, and while having things like upgraded LED lighting may help, sometimes you may be involved in an accident through no fault of your own. This is why insurance coverage is imperative.

While insurance is a must, it can be a very costly payment to make every month, especially for the younger drivers that insurance companies charge more to cover (as they are statistically riskier than older drivers). read more

How Drag Racing Got Its Start

Drag racing has a long history, because—let’s face it—people love thrills and competition. If you wanted to best someone, you did it in a race. What was once horse versus horse quickly turned to horsepower versus horsepower. The sport has roots in the United States from the late 1930s when engines began getting better. Top speeds began to reach 100 mph, and drivers were getting bolder. Favorite racing locales popped up in the dry lake beds of California.

By the end of World War II, teenagers were desperate for ways to pass the time. Many of them took to drag racing, and with that its popularity began to grow. These races were illegal to begin with, and more often than not took place on rural back roads. Two teenagers would battle it out in two cars of the same model, down a straight quarter mile stretch to show off their superior mechanical skills in front of their friends. If you watched the movie Grease, you know how important it was to be the top dog like Danny, Kenickie, and the T-Bird crew. read more

Underglow LED lighting has become a very popular way to turn your car or truck into a personalized statement of aesthetics.

As more and more people started adding underglow LED lights to their vehicles, some states enacted laws to curb what the state legislatures saw as a safety hazard. Other states have completely banned these vehicle enhancements.

However, where underglow is legal, it can be a great way to customize your car.

What Is Underglow?

Underglow, also known as ground effects lighting, has become a popular supplement to vehicle ornamentation. Conveniently available in easy-to-install kits, the LED (light emitting diodes) acrylic tubes are placed along the car’s lower frame to illuminate the ground beneath it. They’re available in almost any color and can be used in a solid color mode or a variety of lighting patterns. read more
