Project Honda Ruckus - Part One

by Jeff Naeyaert

Enjoy a Throwback Thursday to one of our very first projects!  In typical MotoIQ fashion we decided that our Ruck was going to need some help in the suspension, handling and brakes department before we increased the power to help keep things safe.  We had almost rear ended cars due to weak brakes and ended up doing a flying W by hitting a water dip at 35 mph on the street. Although this sounds somewhat comical, it was not safe and had to be addressed.

What the F-Stop: Event Coverage from Behind the Camera Lens

by Sarah Forst

There's just something invigorating about the smell of race gas in the morning, the smoke produced by tires screeching, and the high pitched wail of a high horsepower engine going all out. And while I'd love to be on track owning that racket, I am just as excited to be covering it from behind a camera. From Formula Drift at Road Atlanta to 24 Hours of Nurburgring, my lame attempts at photography ("needs more blur"- thanks Jeff!) have taken me places I couldn't have dreamt about being so close to the action. And at the end of the day when I'm covered in rubber, drenched in either sweat or God's tears, and have claw hand from holding the camera grip for hours, I still have a smile on my sunburnt face.

My Weekend At The USCA And Optima Search For The Ultimate Street Car

by Nick Betz

What's the best way to get out of organizing a brand new shop over the weekend? Well, here at MotoIQ the only excuse you can use that won't get you fired is "I'm headed to the track." That was my excuse to not put in a 4th day of shop moving, and it worked! 


 

NX GTi-R: The Search for Traction

by Frank Ewald

At Canadian Tire Motorsport Park the car with Hoosier R6 205 50 15s ran 1:47 with the GA16DE powerplant. At the same track the same fast driver, Katie, took the car with Toyo RA1 225 45 50s around at a time of 1:40 with the SR20DET. That is a good jump, but with a 200 whp gain I wanted more! You have to be in the car to realize how much speed is being lost exiting corners. It simply cannot find traction.

Project MKVI Golf TDI: Dieselgeek "Panzer" Heavy Duty Aluminum Skid Plate

by Jeff Naeyaert

In our last update we were impressed so much with our Dieselgeek shifter we took a look at some of the other products Dieselgeek makes for our MKVI Golf and found a nice skid pan or as Dieselgeek calls it—Panzer Plate.   We’re not sure if the name is paying homage to the old German tank or the literal meaning of the word meaning “armor” but we get it…  It’s a tough ass piece of aluminum bent to fit underneath the engine and protect all the vital stuff that’s vulnerable to impact now that we’re riding considerably lower than stock.


 

ChumpCar: Calabogie Motorsports Park

by Frank Ewald

ChumpCar competitors and organizers take great pride in their organization, their cars, and their teams. There is a great deal of support for each other and that is seen on track also. But, it is racing and there is no doubt that a cloud of red mist will come over drivers who are chasing that victory, even if it is simply the pride of knowing that you passed that car that has already lapped you two or three times!

Revenge of the Nerd - Power Wars

By Mike Kojima

It's been quite a while since I had the time to write my supposedly "monthly" column. Since we started MotoIQ In 2010 it's been a wild ride which has taken us around the world and on all sorts of adventures. I have been super busy as well.  My normal day job here at MotoIQ is a pretty full time gig but I also do engineering consulting for several key OEM and aftermarket clients as well as several private motorsports ventures.  Perhaps my biggest outside of MotoIQ job is doing chassis engineering for Falken Motorsports' Formula D team.
