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.  


 

Tested! NOCO Genius Boost GB40-Emergency Jump Starter

by Mike Kojima

Having a dead battery really sucks. Not only can it leave you stranded, but you are also dependent on finding a good samaritan that is willing to give you a jump start. Not only is this bad because you are depending on luck, but it also exposes you to danger as you ask perfect strangers for help.


 

Project Mazdaspeed3: Building a Stock Class Cone Killer- Introduction and Installing Koni Shocks

by David Zipf

Autocrossing is a ton of fun. It’s super cheap, you can take almost any car under the sun, it’s fun, and the crowd is very friendly. Within 2 weeks of laying claim to a 2008 Mazdaspeed3, we were dodging cones. The Speed3 is a great Street Class car, with lots of grip, tons of torque, and low gearing to take advantage of that torquey, turbocharged Mazda MZR engine. In other words, a Mazdaspeed3 (or a Ford Focus ST, which is built on the same platform), makes for a great cone killer, with just a few simple modifications.

PRI 2016 was full of famous cars from the Street Outlaws show on the Discovery channel, and we took the opportunity to give you a closer look at several of them.

Making the Ford F-150 Ecoboost Drive and Tow Smoother with Eibach Shocks

by Rathyna Gomer

My dad's Ford F-150 Ecoboost is something I frequently drive, usually to pick up car parts and to tow one of the racecars out to the track. Similar to many folks who also own a racecar, the majority of my focus and money has gone into the racecar, not the tow rig. In actuality, I'm spending hundreds of more hours in the truck picking up parts for the car and towing the car to the track, than actually driving on the track. 


 

Building the FR-S FA20 engine with Stay Crushing, Assembling the Engine!

by Mike Kojima

In our previous installments of the Stay Crushing FR-S engine build, we have been accumulating the parts to build the supercharged FA20 engine. Now we have everything, and it's time to put it all together!


 

Save Our Cars and Our Industry - RPM Act of 2017

SEMA Action Network

It is time to make our voices heard and protect our race cars! Though our industry made a lot of noise last year, it was not enough to get our bill passed. Thanks to the SEMA Action Network's efforts Representative Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and his colleagues have reintroduced the RPM Act. Right now the EPA maintains that it is illegal to convert a street car into a racecar and any company providing parts or services for these cars has engaged in an illegal act. This is unacceptable! So spread the word and use the provided link to write to your elected officials stating that we will not tolerate the EPA meddling with our cars or our industry!


 

LA Auto Show 2016: Nerd’s Eye View – Race Cars and Randoms

by Khiem Dinh

There are always a handful of race cars at the LA Auto Show. The old saying goes, “race on Sunday, sell on Monday." Motorsports are a place for auto manufacturers to test their technology too. If the technology holds up on the race track, the technology should work on the street, right? There were a couple of other race vehicles there, along with some other random things I thought were cool.


 

Project Lexus SC300 Road Racer: Part 8 - Planning for Performance

by Erik Jacobs

So far in the epic rewiring saga of Project SC300 we’ve managed to write thousands and thousands of words, and we don’t even have any wires pulled or harnesses assembled. It just goes to show how much work and planning goes into doing wiring right. While there is still a lot of fabrication to be done, and little odds and ends to take care of, it’s time to talk about planning a wiring job. Get your reading glasses ready- this article is going to get wordy.

by Pablo Mazlumian

In the first four parts of PRI 2016, we've shown you a ton of parts and a plethora of racecars. In this installment we not only have more parts to show you, but we also take a more in-depth look at some of the world's most highly advanced racecars! Let’s get started!


 

Project 5.0 Mustang (The White One) Building the 302 Coyote Engine!

by Mike Kojima

We were eager to get into our motor and install the Ford Motorsports parts that would basically enable us to rev to over 8000 rpm reliably and breathe better on top. The parts we accumulated would bring us to a spec about the same as the Ford Motorsports Aluminator performance crate engine and a little bit more than the Drag Racing Cobra Jet NA engine. 


 



AEM AQ1 - Affordable Data Logging and More!

by Ramitha Edirisinghe

While on-board data logging has been used by professional race teams for decades, it has been simply too expensive for the average grassroots racer to afford. Recently, however, AEM came out with an awesome entry level data logging unit aimed at the grassroots racer: the AQ1. With an MSRP of $395, the AQ1 packs a lot of great features at a very reasonable price.


 

LA Auto Show 2016: Nerd’s Eye View – Ford

by Khiem Dinh

Ford has been pushing a lot of performance within their product lineup. Much of that pushing has taken the form of placing their Ecoboost technology in everything they make. However, they do have some other goodies too that don't involve turbos. For the type of guys who got pissed that Ford put a twin turbo V6 in the Ford GT, they’re really going to be pissed about what Ford did to the new Raptor.

by Pablo Mazlumian
