    Few Articles I've Written

    It will take me a while to get the tire article out but it's going to be very, very in-depth. Basically to the extent of my knowledge and what I can find. If you want to follow the new articles, you can always like me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/vikingspeedshop ... I haven't sold parts in half a year, the site is just a blog now.
  6. I've been writing the occasional article here and there to help explain some concepts to friends of mine and some Facebook groups. They tend to get shared pretty widely on forums so I thought I'd stop by and list them for your reading pleasure. I also am always looking for new topics to write about. Most of these are entry level, and I do have a very big article about tires coming out that is sure to be informative. However, if you have any ideas for articles, or even questions, feel free to send me an email.
