The Amazing HKS R35 GT-R

by Mike Kojima Photos by Andrew Perry and Mike Kojima

When Motovicity Distribution announced The HKS Speedring Time Attack at Cal Speedway, the unique draw besides the guaranteed purse for the winners was announcement that HKS would be bringing their Time Attack R35 GT-R to the states, throwing down the gauntlet and offering a $20,000 prize to any team that could beat the car.


 

Nerd's Eye View: Alex Kelsey's MC2 Rally Car

by Khiem Dinh

Rally cars are awesome. They are small, nimble, and pack a lot of horsepower to roast four tires worth of carbon into some smoky state between solid and gas. Most rally cars are built to a pretty common formula for rally cars based on a strict set of rules. There’s also a lot of heritage that goes along with rally racing. But what if you raced where the rules were more open? What would you do?


 

The Life of Opy: The Nissan Juke Multi-Purpose Racer: Part 3

by Khiem Dinh

The last time we saw the Nissan Juke Multi-Purpose Racer Opy, Opy had some fun competing at a hill climb event. However, Opy ran into some over-heating issues and Lars started working on upgrades. It was time to put in more equipment to put some more ‘Racer’ into the Multi-Purpose Racer too.


 

Building a NASA NP01 Prototype the Right Way with Stoptech! Part 2

by Mike Kojima

Ever since we laid eyes on the conceptual drawings and parts of the NASA/Elan NP01 at the PRI Show 2 years ago, we have been enamored by it.  Since we have loved the exotic cars in the various Prototype classes throughout history, we saw the NP01 as the affordable Prototype.  The fact that it looks like a contemporary P class car seals the deal!


 

Dedicated Motorsports' 255MPH GT-R

by Erik Jacobs

There was a time in the import world when a 10-second car was considered blazing fast. The Nissan GT-R was always a little more special, though. 10-second GT-Rs, especially in street trim, were not hard to come by. Mark Johnston’s 2012 GT-R “Premium” definitely fits into that special category, knocking on the door of the 8.0s with a best run of 8.15 at 177 mph in the quarter. But that’s not why we’re here.


 

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.


 

Project G20 Race Car: Building a More Bulletproof SR20DE!

by Mike Kojima

The good old stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar has been doing yeoman duty, reliably lasting for the last few years racing in the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship and doing many for-fun track days.  The stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar came from a Japanese engine importer and has never been opened up, other than to add big cams back when we used to run the car in N/A trim.  For the past three years the engine has been turbocharged which has greatly increased the strain it's experienced. 


 

The Life of Opy: Part 2 - Building a Better Opy

by Khiem Dinh

There aren't a lot of off the shelf parts available for a Nissan Juke. In part 2 of this series Lars Wolfe fabricates or adapts many parts and updates the shifting pattern to get Opy further race ready.


 

No Rest For the Studious: The Story of the University of Delaware BHR14 (Part 4)

by David Zipf

In Part 3 of our SAE saga, we finally got our beast running and driving, then promptly threw the diff out like bad Taco Bell.  We then jammed to get the chassis welded back together in time for a powdercoating appointment while we took our final exams.  With the chassis at the paint shop, we pretended to be students long enough to actually graduate.  We then hopped into my trusty old CRV and headed down to see what we got.  If you’ve been reading our first three parts, you’ll remember this was an ambitious redesign, with a split chassis, heavily revised suspension, and large weight saving goals.  We also had a greatly expanded budget and needed to have a car that was not only fast, but looked good too, hence the powdercoating.


 

Steve’s STi: Doing It Right!

by Frank Ewald

When talking with Steve about his car you can sense the passion he has for his STi but also for amateur motorsport. Our discussions went on and on as we chatted about the car, friends we have met at the track, the challenges of building a car that performs how you want it to, and the joy of volunteering and seeing newcomers get inspired by track events. The heart of this story, however, is this 2004 STi which, when you get right down to it, has had almost every component and body panel modified in the pursuit of performance. And boy has it worked!
