an engine community

What We Do

A message board / fourm surrounding a popular Honda and Acura engine swap. (engine- swap is taking a stronger faster engine and placing it into a lighter or older chassis.)

Industry

Automotive

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Power, Speed and Performance
#2 - Leader in kseries knowledge
#3 - That we are about community and contribution to the community

Our Target Audience:

Males from the age of 15-50, they love to build cars, they love honda and acura, they are about high end engine performance, education ranges but most are HS to College, located all around the world. At the end of the day these are people completing high end high cost engine swaps into there Hondas and Acuras.

Color Preferences

Red, Black, Grey or Blue. Not all of these colors need be included and possibly none of them. i am not sure a pink or yellow would go to well.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

k20a dot org one of the competitors and k-series dot com another competitor

The main goal of kseries.org is to promote the parent company hybrid-racing.com. We manufacture and sell all the parts needed to complete this engine swap. We are not really trying to brand it as a spin off of hybrid-racing.com

#1 Its a good start...

I think there should be an emphasis on the domain name as when it becomes a sticker etc I want people to know that it is a website. So using .org in there somewhere would be a major plus.

I would like the logo to do well both with a black background and a white background.

I dig the Gold color.

A few ideas I would like to see would be to have a small Kseries engine in the logo or possibly using a lower case k... again these are just ideas.

I get a somewhat back to the future vibe from it... and I am not sure that the I in front of the words is working for me.

I have a few inspirational logos and images I plan on sharing but I was thinking I would wait until a few more people posted before showing them.

All in all I think a fresh start would probably be best, but a good start.

Here's the motor illustration revised. I also changed the typeface and included a couple of color options.

Additional options to consider:
#16 doesn't have boarder around the talk bubble.
#19 has a shadow below under the motor, which I think adds a nice touch.

Let me know what you think.

I love love love #107. The talk bubble rotated 90 degrees fits better with the new engine and allows it to be enlarged quite a bit, which fixes some of detail issues you're seeing.
