A First Timer's Visit to SEMA

A  First Timer's Visit to SEMA

By Colin Holte

Like many auto enthusiasts it had been one of my long held dreams to attend that glorious feast of automotive aftermarket goodness known as the Specialty Equipment Market Association or SEMA.  Also like many auto enthusiasts I didn't really have a job in the automotive industry that would work to gain me entry to the show.  How I fixed that is an interesting story.


 

 
Project Sipster part 3 lead

by Dave Coleman

Any dropout parts jockey can open a parts book and order a new left axle for a '91 Integra, but what if you have an engine from a '91 Integra and an insatiable desire to put it in an '86 Chevy Sprint? There isn't a book in the world that will tell you which axle will work for that one.

The King, an Up Close and Personal Interview with 2010 Formula D Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr.

By Mike Kojima and Vaughn Gittin Jr.

The one most notable thing about the 2010 Formula D season was the domination of the series by one man.  What was amazing was his domination in an era of extremely tough competition by many highly skilled and well backed drivers and teams.  To us, for one driver to be so in charge of the situation in the face of such odds seems impossible.


 

2010 Source Interlink Superlap Battle + Sierra Sierra = Domination

by Eric Hsu

It's been a long hard road to get to 1:41.0, but we've arrived. We are nowhere next to finished so you can expect even faster times in the near future, but for now winning the Source Interlink Superlap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway, CA two years in a row is pretty damn sweet.

Project Sipster Part 2 - The Road to Regina

by Dave Coleman

 

The Diesel engine's stubbornly inaccurate reputation as smelly, rattly and tragically underpowered was cemented in America's collective memory in large part by the Diesel Rabbit. However great they may seem with the tint of nostalgia and the amnesia of time, they were, in reality, pretty awful. But even judged by the exceedingly low standards of its original performance, this particular example was utterly pathetic. Pedestrians could beat it across an intersection at full throttle, and nothing short of driving off a cliff would convince it to break 30.

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V Part 6: Modifying the Brake System

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off working on Project Spec-V, we were modding our engine and suspension for maximum power and road holding. Since we have will now have power and cornering capability, we now turn our attention to the other important part of the performance trifecta, the brakes.


 

Project Miatabusa depowering the miata steering rack

Project Miatabusa Part 5 - De-powering the steering rack the right way

by Dave Coleman

That's right; this installment of Project Miatabusa has nothing to do with putting the engine in the car. This may be the only Miatabusa strory where I don't mention the 11,000 rpm redline at least 3 times. Don't get used to it.

By Mike Kojima, photos by Jeff Naeyaert

We were stoked when we got a call from KW Suspension asking if we would like to visit their facilities in Germany a few months ago.  We felt like how Charlie in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory must have felt when he found that golden ticket for a tour of a wonderful place.  If you don't know who or what KW is, they are the makers of some of the best suspensions available for both the tuner and the professional racing market.

Project Racer Part 8: Nissan SR20DE S4 Cams from Jim Wolf Technology

By Annie Sam

So what was the cherry on top of our Nissan SR20DE horsepower upgrades? S4HL Camshafts from Jim Wolf technology. What are cams? First, let’s start off with the term “cams”. Cams are actually the lobes of the entire assembly, which is more formally known as the camshaft. But, for this article, we’ll stick to calling them cams, as that is the casual term for the part. So, let’s give a little introduction on the basics of cams.
