Event Coverage: 2017 Indianapolis 500 Carb & Legends Day

by David Zipf

If you’ve followed our coverage of the Indy 500 here for the last couple years, you may have been mistaken for thinking that there isn’t much to do on Indy weekend aside from...you know...watch the race.  But that is where you would be mistaken.  The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has dedicated a lot of time and resources into turning the Indy 500 into a three day event, celebrating tradition, speed, and teamwork.  If you’re planning to attend the 500, plan to call in sick and spend Friday and Saturday enjoying the sights and sounds of Indy.

by Frank Ewald

The cover photo is of Wouter Bouman's 916 whp 3-rotor Mazda that put down 916 whp the week prior to the event while. During this anniversary edition of Knox Mountain Hill Climb, Wouter captured the overall victory and set a class record in the process. This is the 60th running of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb hosted by Leavitt Machinery. To this writer's knowledge, this is the oldest continuously running hill climb event in North America. The parkland at the start line quickly changes to the mountainous terrain that you can see in the background. That should give you a hint for what is in store. 


 

Project DC2 Integra - Addressing Gaskets and Maintenance

by Clint Boisdeau

With most DC2 Acura Integras being anywhere from 15 to 20 years old by now, it takes some smart maintenance to keep everything running well and the engine bay clean. Good thing is, most B-series OEM parts are still readily available through several sources. Strategic preventative upkeep can keep Honda B-series engines running for an extremely long time. 


 

Tested! BMW 335i NGK Coils and Bosch Plugs

by Pablo Mazlumian

One of the problematic areas of the BMW 335's N54 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine is the ignition failing, specifically with the coils. And, unfortunately, a new set of coils and plugs can run you over $800 at the stealer. Today we show you how to refreshen those components with new OE replacements from Sparkplugs.com, and we save nearly $500!


 

Project EP3 Civic Si, Suspension Upgrades with Whiteline! 

by Mike Kojima

So everyone into Hondas just about universally ignores or even hates the dumpy EP3 Civic. The EP3 represents, to most Honda fans the generation of Civic where Honda lost their brand identity and started to make cookie cutter shitboxes. 


 

Event Coverage: 2017 Indianapolis 500 Qualifying

by David Zipf

Week one of “The Greatest Month in Racing” started with left and right turns, kicking off with the IndyCar Grand Prix last week. This week, the right turns are abandoned and the focus is on nailing down the fastest time at one of the fastest tracks on Earth. One week of practice leads up to two days of qualifying for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 Presented by PennGrade Oil.  


 

Nissan NX GTi-R V. 3 Continued

by Frank Ewald

You have either been waiting for a year for this update or you are not even sure of what the NX GTi-R is. Of course, a minority may be saying not again but you will have to endure my writing about my favourite car. For those of you who have been waiting, it has been a challenging couple of years but, with the help of AES Auto, things are moving in the right direction. For those of you who are not familiar with this project, this one owner Nissan NX1600 comes with a pedigree earned in the school of hard knocks. The SR20DET swap took place about five years ago and it has been an ongoing learning process - and I must admit I have made some mistakes along the way. When a cracked oil pump took out the engine in 2015, it was time to sit down and really think through the process.

2017 Formula Drift Pro - Road Atlanta

by Erik Jacobs

14 years. It has been 14 years since Formula D first came to Road Atlanta. It's the first place the series ever went, and yours truly even got to drive in it. But, things have changed a lot since that first event long ago. The cars, the drivers- it has all come a long, long way.


 

2017 Formula Drift Pro2 - Road Atlanta

by Erik Jacobs

Formula Drift's Pro2 series is a relatively recent creation, in comparison to the big show's 14-year history. But do not mistake its youth for innocence. The level of attention to detail in the preparation of the cars and the skill of the drivers are nothing to shake a stick at. Making it to the Pro2 show represents a significant achievement, and the competition is fierce. Here's how the Road Atlanta round of the 2017 Formula Drift Pro2 series shook out.

by David Zipf

That can only mean two things: flowers blooming and racecars racing.  Well I don't know about you, but I don't see no pansies above. That’s right, the world famous Month of May is upon us again and MotoIQ is back to cover The Indianapolis Grand Prix, Indy 500 qualifying, and the 101st Indy 500.


 

2017 Global Time Attack - Road Atlanta

by Erik Jacobs

For the past few years, Formula Drift weekend at Road Atlanta has brought the Global Time Attack series in tow as a support event. By day, Road Atlanta sees lap after lap of GTA's classes pounding the pavement in pursuit of fractions of a second. By night, the machines of Formula Drift take the stage.

Lessons in Turbo Technology with Garrett - Burst Containment

by Mike Kojima

What is burst containment for a turbocharger, and why is it important?  A turbocharger is a system that has a lot of potential to cause a lot of bad stuff to happen to drivers, spectators, and surrounding equipment.  Why, might you ask? Well, a typical turbocharger can spin at up to an unfathomable 200,000 rpm for a small frame turbo and a still amazing 90,000 rpm for a large frame turbo!  That is a ton of potentially ass-kicking force. We will show you how much later and it's enough to make you cringe.
