Keep Drifting Serious: ProAm Competitor Andrew Attalla

by Rathyna Gomer

The editorial series, Keep Drifting Serious is intended to shine some light on what it takes to build a competitive drift car (some of you may have read the first Keep Drifting Serious article featuring Vaughn Gittin Jr. a little while ago). 

If you've been following Formula Drift (FD) for the last few years, I'm sure you've made note of how quickly the cars have been evolving. The competitiveness has trickled down into many ProAm series as well. Nowadays, ProAm cars are what FD cars used to be 8+ years ago. 

So as we continue looking at what it takes to build a professional drift car, we take a look inside ProAm driver, Andrew Attalla and his LS1 E46.


 

Project Sim Racer: Part 3 - Enhancing the Experience With Fanatec

by Erik Jacobs

After spending a good number of hours behind the Logitech G920 controls on our GT-R Simulator GTA-F cockpit, we wanted to see if we could enhance our experience. There wasn’t anything wrong with the Logitech setup, but there is a whole lot more high-end gear out there that we wanted to try. Enter Fanatec and another pile of boxes!

External Combustion Rocket Anti Lag System + JDM Spec C Impreza STI

By Eric Hsu 

The external combustion anti-lag "rocket" combustor was used on the factory Prodrive built WRC STi Subaru cars to improve the EJ20 engine's inherent mediocre torque and engine response. The rocket is so good that a version of it is still in use today in the 2012 Japanese Super GT GT300 STi BRZ which also uses an EJ20. Last time I wrote a teaser article, but this time we'll take a look at some of the details of the rocket combustor anti-lag system as it applies to my buddy Ben's JDM Impreza STi Spec C street car over in the UK. 


 

Japanese Cars Suck!

by Mike Kojima

As a hardcore Japanese car enthusiast, it pains me to write this. I have seen the Japanese car phenomena go full circle first hand. When I was a little kid, adults used to snicker and the funny little weird crap boxes that were first imported from Japan by Datsun, Toyota and then Honda. The cars were small, underpowered and quirky. There were some standouts like the Datsun 240Z, the Toyota 2000GT and 510 that were pretty cool cars but for the most part, no one cared.


 

The Continual Beginner

by Christy Carlson

Repetition leads to boredom. Boredom leads to unrest. Unrest leads to new beginnings. Well, that, and running out of means will force a person to "reconsider the options available" in a fairly brisk manner. I've been precariously balancing the pocketbook of life for a while, be it health or wealth, youth and unrest, ambition and means. This is my life in motorsports, starting at 25.


 

Markos’ Snail Performance WRX: Attacking Time with a Message

by Khiem Dinh

Markos Mylonas just kicked a lot of ass in his Snail Performance WRX. See how he put the hurt on his Street AWD competition and threatened the times of GT-Rs with a smart selection of bolt-on components.


 

Honeywell Garrett Boost Festival 2017: Part 1- Global Time Attack

by Karla Pestotnik

Global Time Attack is known to be the premier Time Attack series in Northern America, and arguably, in the western hemisphere of the globe. This isn’t MotoIQ’s first rodeo at another wildly successful GTA event, and it is far from being Global Time Attack’s first highly publicized, sold out competition. GTA teamed up with Honeywell Garrett for Boost Fest 2017, taking place at Southern California’s Streets of Willow Springs Raceway. Hundreds of teams and spectators made the trek to cold and windy Rosemond, CA, in order to pursue and find out who can put down the quickest lap times.

Drivers that are willing to risk it all for one hot lap are heavily rewarded at this track, however, isn’t that the very nature of Time Attack? This is why we love the sport, so let’s see what crazy competition there was and who brought their best!


 

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. 


 

A Ride with VCMC AutoCross!

by Frank Ewald

Like most of you, everyone here at MotoIQ loves automobiles and motorsports have obviously been an interest for years. Taking our cars out for a track day are an absolute highlight. Time Attack. ChumpCar World Series and ChumpCar Canada. Simply attending races of various levels over the years and even being privileged enough to photograph some of these events. However, unlike some of the enthusiasts at MotoIQ who have participated in everything, this writer has never attended an AutoCross event.  Anywhere. Not even as a spectator! So when VCMC provided an invitation to join in their Autocross Warm-Up, signing up was not a question.
