Since we first formed Far North Racing in 1997, we've been documenting what we've learned along the way. Racing technology is filled with too many Secret Squirrels and Super Tunas, and we had to learn the truth about what works and what doesn't the hard way - cut and try, test and evaluate.

Our core modus operendi is "Knowledge shared is knowledge squared". It was hard for us; it need not be hard for you.

We've stopped actively racing, but that doesn't mean the learning has halted. We are currently resto-modding a 1993 Dodge Stealth, and we continue to document the progress of that project and reviews of tools and techniques we use along the way.

We also took up cycling, and some cycling stuff sneaks in from time to time.

In 2016, we added a YouTube channel to augment our static website, and that has added a whole new hockey sock of challenges - now we have to learn filmmaking! Why not? Specialization is for insects.

Proceeds from this channel are used to directly subsidize the continuation of this project, by paying for bandwidth for the main website, or by adding capacity to our video production process or project tools.

We have a few ideas in the pipeline that we want to explore, including:

- The CNC conversion of a benchtop mill
- A video series version of our e-book "Autocross to Win"
- A print version of A2W

And that's just to start.

Your support ensures that we can keep creating content and sharing what we've learned with the world.

Goals
$1 of $1,000 per month
The big project I want to kick off is the conversion of a benchtop mill (King Canada KC-20VS or Craftex CX 601) to CNC control. That process has been done before, but I feel like nobody has documented it correctly - and once complete, it opens up a HUGE hockey-sock worth of capability.

I'm estimating $4k to do the purchase and conversion.

This goal feeds in enough extra money that I can route funds into this project, instead of having to balance the project costs against regular household expenses and maybe skip a month every now and then.
