Redline Track Events: Round 1 Race Report - Willow Springs Raceway 

By Laura Heng

Redline Track events kicks off their racing season with a cornucopia of racing events in a single weekend at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, CA.  Spectators were able to feast on a buffet of different disciplines of motorsports with the four different racing events running simultaneously. The Redline Pro Track Challenge is where the high dollar machines came out to do battle for a chance to win a part of the massive $250,000 prize purse being offered and the Redline Pro Time Attack is the traditional time attack we are all familiar with.  The MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship (MPTCC) which is a half hour wheel to wheel race with a vast array of cars competing on the same racing surface.  And lastly we had the Lotus Cup series which is a manufacturer supported series that featured their own time attack and wheel to wheel race.

For our next round of tweaks, we obtained a set of Cosworth M2 cams for the MIVEC variable cam timing version of the 4G63 found in our EVO IX.  Camshaft design is very tricky with many of the aftermarket offerings not being engineered to control spring surge induced valve float.

2 Cars, 1 Bike

Different jobs require different tools.  What makes a tool great for one job can be the same characteristic that makes it difficult for another.  What is said about tools can also be applied to motor vehicles as a metaphor. The three jobs we are gonna talk about are: track work, romping through the canyons, and daily driver duties.  The three tools we will compare are: A 2005 Evo VIII, a 2005 Honda S2000 and a 2005 Honda CBR 600RR.

EVO X Tech Tips - February 2010

The serpentine belt idlers on the 4B11T do not last very long. In fact they will probably not even last the factory recommended service interval. Read inside for the idlers you want to replace them with to ensure the belt doesn't break and you don't smoke an engine prematurely.

 More Than the Sum of Its Parts

Two Drivers. Their eyes on two Championships. One Car. A lofty goal for any team, for our Father and Daughter team some considered it virtually unattainable. And when the car being shared is a 1992 Nissan NX1600 with a GA16DE engine, it is a goal that most would suggest bordered on lunacy.

I finished 14th overall and won the Touring 2 division.
