Project Mazda3: Part 1 - This Is The Droid We’re Looking For

by Per Schroeder

You know that perfect dreamworld where you’re dating a super model and Patrick Dempsey asks you how you make your hair look so cool?   It doesn’t exist.  In our heads, we should all be driving <insert sports car du jour> and making each and every highway on-ramp a text book example of a four-wheel drift. But that’s not how the ball bounces all the time with life and we need to roll with it.

by Billy Johnson

We test Ford’s new 2015 Mustang EcoBoost to determine if a turbocharged 4-cylinder Mustang bridges the gap between the American Hot-Rodding community and Import Tuners.  How does the Ecoboost stack up against rear-wheel drive icons such as the Honda S2000, turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars like the Subaru WRX, and hot hatches like the VW Golf GTI?  Read on to find out.


 

Project Professional Awesome Time Attack Evo: Part 1 - Roll Cage and Chassis in Detail

by Daniel O'Donnell

Hi! For those that don’t know me, I drive the Professional Awesome Evo from time to time. That being said, I am no engineer, I don’t weld, I don’t fabricate, but when it comes to pushing the broom around the shop and holding things while the guys tack important bits of metal in place, I’m a champ. This should be kept in mind when reading this article. I may not be a complete dip sh!t, but I don’t know everything there is to know on this topic. Please don’t hesitate to comment and add to this conversation, let me know where I’m right and where I should get to studying!

NX GTi-R: The Search for Traction – Part Two

by Frank Ewald

The thing about being involved in a search, perhaps more aptly named a quest, is that one usually follows a meandering path as opposed to a direct route. My quest started just over a decade ago when I began the path to improve my Nissan NX 1600 beyond the limitations of what the factory had imposed upon it. Having owned the car since 1992, I knew what it was good at and what some of the limitations were. In 2011 I fulfilled a huge part of my quest, which was the installation of an SR20DET from a Pulsar GTi-R. That moved me into the next phase of my quest, which was improving the handling and the traction. If you have read my previous articles then you know my disappointment in finding that adding the horsepower has produced great straight line speed but reduced what was an amazing momentum/cornering car into a cornering lump. Each year since there has been improvement, and hopefully this year will be a huge step in the right direction.

Polystrand GT-Lite CRX: Part 3 - Simulating the Suspension

by Jonathan Spiegel

At the end of Part 2 of the Polystrand GT-Lite Project, we had finalized the preliminary design for the independent rear suspension (IRS), generated the CAD model, and sent our CRX off to the bodyshop sans rear suspension. Thanks to Rassini, we had our virtual computer model of the chassis courtesy of Chris Galea’s work with the FARO unit, and Tony Berlingieri prepared the car by removing the old rear suspension and a lot of the now unnecessary supporting structure. Additionally, before the car left on the flatbed, Tony added some framework to which we’ll install the new IRS unit when the car comes back.

by Mike Kojima

One of the markings of a better shock company is if the company can service their product by offering rebuilding and revalving if the the customer needs it for their usage.  We recently visited Tein Suspension since they are rebuilding and revalving the shocks on our Project Supra.

Our SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge car's progress is coming along nicely.  With all of our other mods coming together we now will focus on getting serious power out of our FA20 engine with an HKS supercharger.  With power comes heat and we will be relying on a CSF racing radiator to take care of our cooling needs. 


 

The Alley, Enrique Perez's LS-1 powered TE72 Toyota Corolla

by Mike Kojima

In keeping with our new tradition of using our secret photoshoot location behind the palatal MotoIQ Mega Shop, our next Alley feature is a very special car. Enrique Perez's 1980 TE72 Toyota Corolla. The TE70 series Corolla produced from 1978 to 1983, is one of our favorites as it is a classical Corolla with a front engine and rear wheel drive.  Much of our youth was spend modding these cars.  With their near bulletproof 3TC engine they could take a lot of hard use and we spent a lot of time boring them to 2 liters, strapping on dual sidedraft carburetors and hosing them with Nitrous Oxide. 


 

Project S2000: Part 22 – Testing New Goods and More Intake Mods

by Khiem Dinh

The whole point of modifying cars with go-fast parts is to go fast right? So of course, Project S2000 required a good romping at Buttonwillow after the installation of the Blacktrax Performance/Kingpin Machine spherical bearing suspension setup and Hasport rear differential mounts. The car is also in a constant state of tweaking requiring adjustments along the way as lessons are learned. Everything is better with video too and Replay XD stepped in to help.
