Tested: RS-R's Ran-Up Oil Treatment, Power in a Bottle

By Mike Kojima

"Mike, MotoIQ has to try our Ran-Up oil treatment", RS-R's John Masuda would say to me every time I saw him over the past year.  "It gives you 5-12 more whp in our testing and I really want you to try it".  Yeah right I would think.  Sounds too good to be true.


Turbosmart Time Attack FC RX-7

by Khiem Dinh

The FC is the middle child in the RX-7 family meaning it doesn't get quite as much love as the other two.  The 1st generation FB was a pure sports car that really introduced the rotary to North America while the 3rd generation FD was (and still is almost 20 years after its introduction) sex on wheels.  The FC was designed to be a little softer than the FB, but it was still a better performance car all around with an independent rear suspension and rack and pinion steering.  Of course, you could also buy the FC with boost!  For the 2011 World Time Attack Challenge, the boys down under at Turbosmart decided to show that the FC is a highly capable car even with a simple build.

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off we had just gotten our TRD big brake set and were anticipating installing them on our Project Tundra Supertruck.  However our brakes were so big we could not fit them under our forged 17" TRD wheels.  It was not even close.  Checking with TRD we found that the smallest diameter wheel we could use was a large 20" in diameter wheel.

By Mike Kojima

Was the SR Swap a Mistake?
Or is the GA a hidden gem that was simply overlooked?

By Frank Ewald

Overheating is an ongoing issue with an SR20DET stuffed into an NX1600, but the NX GTiR is getting there. A significant addition to combat this challenge is a G-Spec oil cooler. This is a monster and that's what I needed to keep things cool. However, the capacity and size posed its own issues regarding where to locate it.  Read on to see how we resolved this issue and others that have cropped up along our Motorsports journey.


PLX Devices KIWI Bluetooth OBDII Adaptor and Palmer Performance Dash Command

By Mike Kojima

We have been reviewing the KIWI from PLX devices for the last few months.  The KIWI is a device that allows you to wirelessly monitor your car's OBDII functions via your smartphone.  There are plenty of options to do this if you have an iPhone but the KIWI works well with your Droid.  Since many of us don't do iPhones, the KIWI is a product we have been waiting for..
