$20,000 at Stake: The Speed Ring by Motovicity!

The Speed Ring by Motovicity is the richest Time Attack event held in North America. The fastest time of the weekend headed home from The Speed Ring with $20 000.00 cash in their brand new briefcase. Plus the ultimate bragging rights as the fastest Time Attack car in North America - backed up by a big, shiny, and hugely coveted 'Ultimate Badass' trophy. This is the second year that Motovicity has held The Speed Ring and it is, without a doubt, a not to be missed event.

2017's Speed Ring took place in the mid-west at Michigan's new M1 Concourse. It was a two day event with Saturday being a standard time attack event while Sunday was a crowd pleasing, Touge-style bracket race with the best two out of three laps coming out on top as the winner. Motovicity teamed up with GridLife to build the event which is just two years old. This is a quick overview of The Speed Ring with a focus upon the cars that ran in the Touge Bracket Racing. Did you miss The Speed Ring this year? Plan for it next year. And if you are overseas, start looking into booking your shipping container now so that you will be ready. The North American's are ready for you!

Pedders eXtreme XA Coilovers - Chevrolet SS Installation & Test Drive

by Martin Gonzales

We've had good experiences with companies from down under such as Whiteline, Turbosmart and PE Racing so we were anxious to try out the suspension offerings from another Australian company, Pedders. Although the name Pedders is probably new to most of you MotoIQ readers, they have been around for a long time, 67 years, in fact, being founded in 1950. 


 

Wrench Tip: In Defense of Cheap Tools

by Matt Brown

I have a $400 multimeter in my toolbox. I’m not sure why, but at some point in the recent past, I decided I needed to measure voltage with an accuracy of less than one-tenth of one percent and current down to ten microamps. Sitting on top of it, is that red multimeter that Harbor Freight occasionally gives away free with any purchase. Guess which one gets used most often?


 

We Look Inside Fredric Aasbo's Papadakis Racing Toyota Corolla iM Drift Machine

by Mike Kojima

It is really hard to build a competitive car in Formula Drift nowadays. The rules set is mature, and the competition is ruthlessly tough. When even the best teams develop a new platform, it can take a whole season to sort a new chassis out. A radically different chassis can take a couple of seasons for even a top team to get competitive. Not so for Papadakis Racing and their Rockstar Toyota Corolla iM that they built for 2015 Formula Drift Champion, Fredric Aasbo.


 

WATCH: Project V8 RX-7 gets ARP wheel studs, wheel spacers and a new set of nuts!

We were so excited about our new Sikky shifter video that we almost forgot to show you exactly how we approached new lug studs and spacers for the rear. We did a pretty good job guessing what offset would give us that perfect flush fitment of our SSR SP4 wheels on our Rocket Bunny widebody RX-7, but there was still room for improvement! We took care of all that with a set of 10mm FIC spacers, new ARP wheel studs and Muteki lug nuts!


 

WATCH: Project V8 RX-7- Sikky T56 Magnum Shifter Install!

5 years ago we installed Sikky Manufacturing's original T56 Magnum relocation shifter, and it served us well, but now they've updated the design. We got our hands on one to compare and install in Project V8 RX-7! Click to watch and see more!

by David Zipf

Welcome back to our post-race breakdown of Formula 1! In case you missed the Malaysian Gran Prix review, MotoIQ will be bringing you its own particular nerdtastic take on the latest news and developments in F1. Impress your neighbors, stun your friends, and woo the ladies with your newfound F1 knowledge! Let's break down what happened during last weekend's Japanese Gran Prix and get into some predictions for the American Gran Prix!


 

MotoIQ Takes a Trip to [HOONIGAN] With Project V8 RX-7 and Project Civic EP3 Si!

Wild burnouts, fun games and plenty of laughs. These are all things to be expected when watching an episode of the Daily Transmission on [HOONIGAN]'s YouTube channel. What they didn't expect was MotoIQ Editor-In-Chief, Mike Kojima, to come and enlighten everyone with some suspension knowledge and history. Click to watch to see what all happened!


 

Straight From Japan: Nissan R33 Skyline GT-R

by Alvin Miles Jr. 

What started as a highly sought after performance choice in Japan, turned into an eight-second, 1000 horsepower drag build before leaving the Japanese shores. After being imported into sunny California's traffic-filled lands, simplicity was re-envisioned for the sake of drivability and enjoyment. This R33 GT-R is reminiscent of its history while being driven and appreciated in the States. 


 

Project F150: Part Three - Center Line Wheels and Nitto Trail Grappler Tires

by S.Tate

We deal with a basic but important set of decisions when selecting wheels and tires for your vehicle. We’ll freely admit that aesthetics are a big part of our choice, but we have other considerations too for this racecar hauler rig. We selected Center Line RT3X wheels and a set of Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. In addition, we reprogram our speedometer to accommodate the increase in rolling circumference. 


 

Tested! Weego's Lunch Box Automotive Power Source

by Mike Kojima

We get all sorts of cool stuff in the mail at MotoIQ's palatial mega-garage. Manufacturers send us stuff in hopes that we will test it and write about it. This means that we have more than our share of miracle lubes and additives, car care products and weird gadgets. Most of these things end up not working, so well so you never read about it here. However, the other day we got a box from a company we had never heard of called Weego.


 

Curly's Corner: A Nerd's Eye on Formula 1 - Malaysian Grand Prix

by David Zipf

Regular MotoIQ readers will know that I have a particular fondness for IndyCar racing. However, I also have a BIG passion for Formula 1. While the on track action can’t even begin to touch the excitement of the Indy 500, there is so much more to the sport than just what’s happening on track for 2 hours every few Sundays. In this new column (inspired by my appearance on the Cars & Popcorn podcast where we discuss the movie Rush), I will try to mush together all the big stories in F1 right now and try to turn it into a coherent narrative. If you’re a casual fan who wants to up your F1 nerd cred, you’ve come to the right place!
