Basic Control Theory and Engine Management Systems

By Vince Illi

Killer B’s, Honda and Mazda to Release B Segment Racers

By Mike Kojima

We can just about all agree that racing is fun. We can also agree that racing is also very expensive. It is the expense of racing that deters most of us with racing ambitions from actually taking part in wheel to wheel racing. Well the SCCA, NASA and several manufacturers of sub compact cars, known as the B Segment have gotten together to support a new affordable racing class.


Ask Sarah: MPH vs MPG

Husqvarna TE610 Dual Sport Bike
Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 1: Dual Sport Adventure Bike Options

By Dan Barnes

Buying a semi-obscure Italian motorcycle and riding it out to the middle of nowhere may not seem to be a well-thought-out plan, but really, there was some thought. I swear. An off-road bike is ridiculous fun, but it's also kind of like having a track car that needs a trailer. The goal of this project is a go anywhere, do anything bike.

Project Civic EJ: Fast Brakes Rear Disc Brake Conversion Kit

by Chuck Johnson

After completing the install of the front Fast Brakes big brake kit, we knew that we had to do something about the drum brake lameness that was taking place on the rear of Project Civic. Project Civic had been retired to commuter car only status almost a decade ago and since then had only the basic maintenance performed. We were pretty suspicious that the rear drums weren't contributing any work in the whole braking equation since there seemed to be an abnormal amount of front brake bias.  Never mind that the rear drums and shoes had not been replaced ever even after 260,000 miles of use.


 

How To Degree Cams

How To Degree Cams

By Aaron Bonk

An engine works best when the right things happen at the right time. Say your spark fires before your pistons are in their right spots—you might embarrass yourself on the dyno. You might even end up with a scenic view of your bottom end. The relationship between an engine's crank and its cams is no different. The rise and fall of its pistons has to sync with the opening and closing of its valves, which happen to be controlled by its cams. This is even more important to pay attention to once aftermarket cams, adjustable cam gears or other mismatched components are introduced as well as once an engine's block or cylinder head have been resurfaced. All of this should be enough to make you want to degree your cams.

Basic Drift Chassis Setup Part 2

By Mike Kojima

In part one of our series we spoke about the importance of good suspension which is probably the first major step in setting up a car for drifting.  Although the suspension is really important, perhaps just as important is a good limited slip differential.
