Testing the Nitto Motivo All Season Ultra High Performance Tire

Testing the Nitto Motivo All Season Ultra High Performance Tire

by Tom Paule

"Hey, want to do some tire testing for Nitto next week?" is what the voice on the phone says. "Hey, want to come with us and shred some tires driving someone else's car" is what I hear. I'm at max vacation days at work, and this is a great excuse to get out of the office, so I say "I'm in – just tell me when to be there." and hung up the phone. The details were to spend a day at Cal Speedway to evaluate three different Nitto tires with fellow drivers Formula D pilot Mike Essa and the incomparable Tyler McQuarrie, putting the Nitto NT05s, Invos and all new All Season Motivos through some very tough courses to evaluate each at their limits.

VIDEO: Blowin' Up Garrett Turbos

By Mike Kojima

No this is not a problem with Garrett turbochargers but an example of Garrett's suburb OEM level engineering.  A turbo can spin at up to 250,000 rpm.  That's right two hundred and fifty THOUSAND rpm.  A turbo is also a powerful turbine machine that can generate over 100 hp in some applications.  When you combine revs and stress you potentially have yourself a pretty mean food processor spinning in your car.  You don't want it spinning through your car.

GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series from Barber Motorsports Park

By Efrain Olivares

The Barber circuit provides unique challenges for both the drivers and the engineers responsible for setting up the Daytona Prototype and GT-class cars of the Rolex Sports Car Series. With a layout that makes passing difficult, an abrasive surface that rapidly degrades tires, as well as high ambient temperatures, racing at Barber is very difficult.
