Technobabble - Redefining Monkeypower

by Dave Coleman


Automotive terms and definitions have a long history of being stupid and arbitrary, and I have no intention of changing that, but if we’re going to be stupid, let’s at least use monkeys.


4G63 Divided by 8

Inside are some images of some 4G63 heads and a block I sectioned for a study back in August 2010.

Project Racer Part 11: Grip Addiction; We Install Progress Sway Bars

Project Racer Part 11: Grip Addiction; We Install Progress Sway Bars

By Annie Sam

Modificum Racerium – a chronically debilitating disease which is characterized by the irrationally obsessive addiction to car modification and speed. “More!” we keep chanting, as we illogically pass up hot meals for cup o noodle in order to quell this addiction by buying more upgrades for our soon to be NASA PTD car.

Project Racer: Back to the Track with NASA, Part Two

By Annie Sam

Our last article gave you a brief introduction to the learning curve for the average driver through the different stages of HPDE (High Performance Driving Event). As promised, this month’s article will give you a little more detailed tutorial on the basics of driving on the road course. Keep in mind that since this Project NASA PT car is an NX2000, the information given here pertains primarily to FWD vehicles, the typical drivetrain of many compact racing cars.

NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill with BMC Tool Racing, Part 2

by Eric Hsu

In part 2, I cover most of the engine and some of the drama with the engine and engine installation. Racing's never easy is it? I included pictures of some of the engine's internals and components selected for the turbo Mazda DISI/MZR hybrid power plant.

Turbosmart Comp-Gate40 Wastegate

by Eric Hsu

A trick, tiny, high flowing, new wastegate from Turbosmart Australia. I used a pair on the Sierra Sierra EVO. Good enough for Sierra Sierra, plenty good for you (or those of us with normal cars). The tiny package size means you can fit this wastegate in almost any engine bay.

Revspeed Super Battle Time Attack 2010 - Tsukuba Japan

by Eric Hsu

This isn't full event coverage, but just some info on a few of the cars present at Revspeed's Super Battle Time Attack. The Garage Revolution FD almost beats the HKS EVO's time at Tsukuba. Some pictures and videos inside.



NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill with BMC Tool Racing, Part 1

by Eric Hsu

Part 1 of BMC Tool Racing's story to get to the 2010 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Inside are images of parts of the cars including some new aero, new coolng system, and of course a turbocharged Cosworth/Mazda engine. 400+bhp in a sub 1500lb car? Hell yeah! The only catch is that it has to last for 25 hours...

Cosworth XFE ChampCar Engine on Dyno

by Eric Hsu

Cosworth's last CART/CCWS engine revs to 12,000rpm on the engine dyno with glowing headers and all. A 2.65L V8 that revs to "only" 12,000rpm with approximately 7.5psig of boost = 750bhp.


2010 Source Interlink Superlap Battle + Sierra Sierra = Domination

by Eric Hsu

It's been a long hard road to get to 1:41.0, but we've arrived. We are nowhere next to finished so you can expect even faster times in the near future, but for now winning the Source Interlink Superlap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway, CA two years in a row is pretty damn sweet.
