JMS Racing Subaru WRX STi at the Texas Mile

by Erik Jacobs

JMS Racing is no stranger to AWD performance, having been in the Mitsubishi Evo game for some time. They also have been around the block when it comes to drag and other straight-line racing, having built the first 9-second Evo in Texas. At a customer's request they turned their attention to Subaru mile performance racing and built this 200+ MPH capable beast.


 

Sneak Peek: Global Time Attack Cars Round 1

by Khiem Dinh

The first round of Global Time Attack 2017 was held at Streets of Willow as part of the Honeywell Garrett (formerly Air Research, Allied Signal, Garrett, Turbo by Garrett, Garrett by Honeywell, and maybe a couple other names I’m forgetting) Boost Fest. The thing we like about the cars and drivers at GTA is it’s still all very grassroots. Not many people with crazy budgets, a lot of homebrew economic performance enhancers, you know, stuff your average car nut can relate to in their own garage. 


 

Grassroots Drifting: Tennessee Based & Battle Tested

by Taylor Haney

Grassroots drifting or automotive racing in itself already creates a sense of camaraderie through sportsmanship and love for the sport. If you add in being a military veteran on top of that, you create a strong melting pot that resembles more of a family than a team. The Clarksville, Tennessee-based drift organization Battle Tested Motorsports did just that with 15 out of 16 members being military veterans, active duty or reserve.


 

Driver Development Title

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.


 

Hooman Rahimi's 350Z: Pro 2 and the Cost of Drifting

by Taylor Haney

At the end of a long day or week, we all have our own way of unwinding and loosening the shackles of responsibility. For some of us, it might be alcohol or working out at the gym, but for Hooman Rahimi, it’s always been about roasting some tires.


 

Building a NASA NP01 Prototype the Right Way with Stoptech! Part 3

by Mike Kojima

We have been following the Stoptech's team build of their NP01 in the MotoIQ Megashop for the past quarter. Although we stretched out the coverage for editorial scheduling, the actual build took about a month. Although the NP01 can be built relatively quickly as a multi-weekend project, we are showing the right way that Stoptech is going about it to build a first class, reliable NP01 that is going to win some races.  


 

Terrorizing Time: Integra Type R

by Frank Ewald

James Houghton has been to Buttonwillow three times over the last four years. You are forgiven if you assumed he's been there every weekend practicing, because his 2016 time was almost six seconds faster than his 2015 time! He knows the track, but as he is from Canada, it is far from his home track. He took almost 6 seconds off of his 2015 lap time and yet his horsepower levels are almost the same as 2015. There are many other aspects of the car that have been tweaked between then and now and in this article we will look at some aspects of this fine tuning. It is not an understatement to say that James eats, sleeps, and breathes racing. He is constantly looking at ways to expand his capabilities as a driver. Over the years he has been carefully honing his Integra Type R into the incredible machine that it is now- a car that terrorizes in all the Time Attack events that it enters. Forget the fact that it is running in the Unlimited Front Wheel Drive class, as he is right on the heels of or beating the RWD and AWD competition! That this Type R has evolved from an incredibly solid street car into this record breaking beast is a testament to the hard work that James and R-Division's Eric Lavigne have put into this project. Driver, Car, and Mechanic combine to create a team that is, well, almost unbeatable.

by Mike Kojima

If you are a fan of drifting, then you know all about Forrest Wang, who is renowned for his spectacular high angle and smoky driving style. His car builds have a lot of style as well and we have been trying to catch up with him for a year to be able to capture one of his masterpieces in a story. 


 

Attacking Time with the LYFE Motorsports Nissan R35 GT-R

by Mike Kojima, action Photos by GTA and Snap Studios

When Cole Powelson set out to build an R35 GT-R he initially didn't have the ambitious plans to build one of the world's fastest time attack cars. The 2012 GT-R originally was built as a modified but streetable time attack car which was run for fun.  Then the car was repurposed and underwent a metamorphosis, eventually being rebuilt into the sophisticated machine that appears on our site here.
