By David Karey

The 2010 Formula D finale at Irwindale was probably some of the best, most drama filled and intense drifting ever witnessed.  There were many stories, a close title fight between Falken Tire teammates Vaughn Gitten Jr. and Dai Yoshihara was a backdrop to a fight for second and third place in the points as well between Dai Yoshihara, Ryan Tuerck and Tanner Foust.


 

Sierra Sierra EVO Update & BorgWarner EFR Turbos

by Eric Hsu

The last test at Buttonwillow was the straw that broke the camel's back both for the choice of turbocharger and the cylinder head sealing issues. You can see the despair (and my head scratching) in the picture above, but with any down there's always going to be an up. BorgWarner with their EFR turbo lineup and Cosworth with our turbo race engine experience are coming to the rescue.

Images of broken turbos, fire damage, and other cool stuff are just inside.

Project V8 RX-7: Part 2 - Inside the GM LS-3 E-ROD Crate Engine

By Mike Kojima
 
Hybridnoun- the offspring of two animals or plants of different breeds, varieties, species, or genera, esp. as produced through human manipulation for specific genetic characteristics.
 
In what was nearly a generation ago, a fire was started in the Sport Compact performance market. Some guys on the west coast started dropping DOHC B series engines from the Acura Integra and H series engines from the Prelude in to the smaller Civic, dumping out the SOHC D series econo motor. The creation was called a Hybrid and in the smaller lighter Civic the bigger engines produced amazing for the time performance and launched a huge industry that for awhile dominated the modification scene creating a lifestyle of its own. Import Performance. This generation was rooted firmly against anything domestic. Domestic offerings were considered unrefined, unreliable, unsophisticated and redneck.

 

Suck Squish Bang Blow part 5 Avoidance of Detonation

By Mike Kojima


Detonation is perhaps the deadliest sin you can inflict upon your motor.  It is usually caused by gluttony, another bad sin, gluttony for more power. Detonation is the result of going too far in the quest for power.  Pushing things to the limit when eking the last bit out, too far for your fuel's octane, too far for your fuel system flow capacity, too much heat for your cooling system to dissipate, the list goes on and on.  All of these can lead to a quick end to your motor. Really bad detonation can destroy any engine very quickly, about the only way quicker would be to dump out your oil while it's running full tilt.

The Ultimate Handling Guide Part V: The One Unforgivable Sin, Overlowering Your Car

By Mike Kojima

I am not Jesus so I don't have to forgive you if you mess things up when setting up your car. I am talking about sin, pure dumb unforgivable sin. No it's not the one that’s talked about in the New Testament that gives clergy fits to explain to lay people, its a big mistake, one that nearly all enthusiasts are unknowingly guilty of that is the most common mistake when modifying a car's suspension.  It’s a sin which so thoroughly screws up handling that it gives engineers fits when trying to explain why this is so to automotive enthusiasts.
