DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.


 

Drivers Review: The Ferrari 458 Italia

by Mike Bonnani of Exotics Racing

The Ferrari 458 Italia, what needs to be said that isn’t already blatantly obvious? It is an amazing machine and you can tell just by looking at it. It is a Ferrari after all, but there’s much more to it than just being a fast looking car.

Project Car Dreams

Part 1: Finding Your Project

by Per Schroeder

For everyone that says that the hardest part about any project is the first step, I counter with this:  starting something is easy—it’s finishing the job that takes the most out of you.   Automotive restoration can be thought of as a metaphor for life.  There are lessons learned, problems solved—and layers of complexity that are often overlooked as we go from day to day, or task to task. 


 

Sneak Peek: BAC Mono at Sector 111

by Khiem Dinh

Those crazy blokes from England have a knack for making ‘streetable’ track cars. Caterhams, Ariel Atoms, and Radicals come to mind. Sure, they really really stretch the definition of streetable, but they can be equipped with head lights, brake lights, turn signals, and mirrors. One of the latest cars designed across the pond is the BAC Mono and it’s even more extreme than the others.


 



AEM Infinity EMS: The Power to Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control

by Chuck Johnson

When it comes to building cars, I've always tried to maintain a "keep it simple, stupid" approach. At the center of my dead reliable formula was my factory re-flashed ECU. When I decided to get serious about land speed racing, along with that came an exponentially growing need for more capability. I reluctantly dug my heels in denial, touting my "keep it simple stupid" argument. Ironically, that very argument was what would convince me to finally make the change to a standalone ECU. It comes down to this one question. Is a race car running a re-flashed ECU in tandem with a plethora of standalone systems for boost control, wide band sensors, variable valve lift, and data logging really simple? No. Enter the AEM Infinity 8 EMS.

Protect your FR-S Airdam with Protekt Skidplates!

by Mike Kojima

No matter how careful you are, you will do it eventually.  We have done it plenty of times. Modern high performance cars now almost always come with low airdams which make a big difference aerodynamically.  This means that you have probably hit them on the ground and damaged them on speed bumps, driveways and parking lots no matter how anal you are.

Project M3: Part 8 - Dealing With The Dreaded EML Light

by Pablo Mazlumian

If you've ever had the yellow EML light come on, it usually has to do with the drive-by-wire system.  In Project E46 M3's case, every time it came on, it would stall the car and render it useless unless you knew what to do to reset it.  Check out what we did to get the car running tip-top again.


 

Project V8 RX-7: Part 15 – Major Suspension Overhaul

by Jeff Naeyaert

A couple of annoying sharp eyes on our last update a few weeks ago revealed that we had some KW suspension bits on our RX-7, so we've been forced to get off our lazy butts and write about them, some SuperPro bushings and a bunch of Improved Racing suspension goodies we put on as well in our attempt to make Project V8 RX-7 not only corner as well as it goes straight, but also remain tolerable and civil for daily driving.
