People’s Choice Car Show and Parade of Garages

by Pablo Mazlumian

During this time of the year, every week in the Kansas City area you'll find multiple car shows or meets to feast your eyes on. I went to this one not expecting to see much, but a few minutes into I had to grab some shots to show our readers. Check out this tremendous mix of cars, ranging from current and old-school muscle, to exotics and hot rods, to Jeeps with machine guns, and a garage parade! Enjoy flipping through the cars and garages of the Carriage Houses of Johnson County and KC Automotive Museum. If you make it to the last page, tell us what you think of our new styling updates on one of our Midwest garages!


 

TESTED: BG Syncro Shift II Synthetic Gear Oil

by Billy Johnson

Changing out the factory transmission fluid for a higher performance oil is a common solution to reduce the notchy-ness and improve shifting feel. This is especially important in the Getrag MT-82 used in the 2011-2017 Ford Mustang. While we already changed out the trans fluid in our test car, Tim at OPMustang.com said I “HAD TO” try the BG Syncro Shift II Synthetic Gear Oil. I wasn’t really motivated, since the current Royal Purple Synchromax was already a big improvement over stock, but Tim offered to buy me a steak dinner if I didn’t think there was an improvement, so I gave it a try.


 

Event Coverage: Red Bull Global Rallycross Indianapolis

by David Zipf

MotoIQ and Global Rallycross go quite a way back. In fact, all the way back in 2009 Dave Coleman gave us a peek at the Olsebergs Fiesta engines and just a couple years ago our chief nerd was in the pits at the Long Beach GRC race and brought us An Inside Look at mountune's GRC Ford Duratec Engine. GRC is much like the circus: they pop-up in town, put on a show, and leave without a trace. Well, if you don’t count a bunch of skid marks as a trace. GRC has hosted a ton of new events in the Midwest this year including in Louisville, Memphis, and Indianapolis. I'm in Kentucky so attending the Louisville race would have made much more sense for me, but I was a bit preoccupied that weekend covering the IndyCar Grand Prix. So to get my rallying fix, I took the drive north to Indianapolis. 


 

TESTED: STEEDA Anti-Wheel Hop Package

by Billy Johnson

First iterations of new technologies are rarely flawless. When the Mustang ditched the solid axle in 2015 in favor of a 21st century Independent Rear Suspension, it transformed into a modern-day sports car with greatly improved ride quality and handling dynamics. Unfortunately, the new diff and subframe are mounted with soft, compliant rubber bushings that cause a significant wheel hop when launching the car and unwanted toe changes in corners. This affects drag and road racers alike. In order to eliminate these issues, we tested Steeda Autosport’s Ultimate ‘Stop the Hop’ Package and Adjustable Differential Bushing Insert System.


 

Motor Massive, Global Time Attack, 86 Fest: Everything You'll Want In One Place

by David Kim

Toss in a little Global Time Attack into the mixing bowl, add a little 86Fest into the mix, include a touch of Auto Club Speedway, then sprinkle in everything motorsport to make yourself a delicious treat of Motor Massive. Enjoy on a beautiful, but very hot, Sunday afternoon- the collaborative affair between GTA and 86Fest brought one massive automotive event to Southern California, and yes, I was probably a little hungry at the time of writing this, but this event catered to literally all forms of automotive interests. Want a slice of high performance Time Attack? Sure, it’s only a few steps this way.


 

Sneak Peek: Killer B Motorsport’s KILRB1

by Khiem Dinh

Those who race a Subaru know the name Killer B Motorsport. They likely have a number of Killer B parts on their car, such as the engine saving Killer B oil pickup, which replaces the failure prone OEM component. Aside from their oil related products, Killer B is well-known for their unique and highest performing Holy Header too. KILRB1 is the car all those parts were developed on, and it is the highly regarded STi in the Subaru world for its top-notch build quality and innovation. 


 

#LeMansDay at the Petersen Automotive Museum

by Khiem Dinh

The Petersen Automotive Museum has started a tradition of holding a 24 Heures du Mans (that’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in English) watch party. This year, a little competition on Forza was also held to be entered into a raffle to win a set of tires from Michelin. But really, the Petersen Automotive Museum has a stunning array of vehicles showing both history and modern technology, so anyone should visit the museum regardless. 


 

Why You Need to Get a 3D Printer!

by Nikita Rushmanov

Why do you need a 3D printer? A better question would be, why haven’t you got one yet? 3D printing has long been hailed as the “next big thing in tech”, and it’s for a good reason. It allows you to manufacture parts for literally pennies, without any tooling and setup costs, which can’t be said about other manufacturing methods, such as injection molding or CNC machining. In addition, with printing, you can make parts that just can’t be manufactured by other methods. Because the object is built from scratch by depositing material where it needs to go, rather than starting with raw stock and cutting it to shape, you can build completely enclosed objects that have cavities inside of them. Even casting or injection molding can’t match the geometric possibilities that printing offers you. A 3D printer is one of those tools that just seems to have endless possibilities. If you can dream it, you can make it.


 

AutoX’ing Steed: Gregg Biddlingmeier’s 1988 Ford Mustang

by Justin Banner

It’s not the first choice of those who go autocrossing or tracking, but when a Fox-body Mustang is set up right, it can make for a potent road racer. Gregg Biddlingmeier’s example is one of many he’s owned and shows what these Fords are capable of with some planning, fabrication, and execution.


 

ASN Canada FIA Canadian Autoslalom Championship

presented by Toyo Tires

by Frank Ewald

Pitt Meadows, B.C. was home to the ASN Canada FIA Canadian Autoslalom Championship presented by Toyo Tires on June 24th and 25th. Held at the expansive YPK Pitt Meadows Training Facility and hosted by the VCMC Motorsport Club, there was plenty of open space on this massive paved training ground for a huge course layout. And not just one, but four courses were run over the weekend. At the noon break on both Saturday and Sunday, the courses were changed slightly at the start line and finish box to allow the courses to be run in reverse. This gave the drivers a huge challenge and also kept them on their toes throughout the weekend. Further adding to the challenge, the four best scores for each driver were tallied up and that combined total led to the final score.
