By Sarah Forst

Find out what it's like to get around in the South Pacific.  There are a number of small islands in the South Pacific that you can leap frog across the Pacific and fulfill your wanderlust for "Transportation off the Beaten Path."   Rarotonga is no transportation paradise but does have its fair share of fun behind the wheel.  


 

Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 3: Nut and Bolt Check
Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 3: Nut and Bolt Check

By Dan Barnes

More so than with any other vehicle I've experienced, it's proven necessary to strip all the covers off the Husqvarna TE610 and inspect everything, top to bottom. Every detail is an opportunity for a problem, and buying a brand-new bike would only have gotten us off the hook for a few parts and maybe an oil change. No one part of it took much time or money, but it all needed to be done.

Driver Blog: Tyler McQuarrie

By Tyler McQuarrie

Hey MotoIQ readers, I'm Tyler McQuarrie and I'm very excited to be writing my first blog for MotoIQ. Some of you may know me from Formula D, or time attack, or even Grand Am. I simply love cars and love manipulating them to do what I want them to do, whether it's drifting or racing. I have a packed schedule for 2012 with a full season of Grand Am in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge in the Insight Racing BMW, a full season in Formula Drift (announcement soon), and Global Time Attack with the FXMD NSX. I will post up a blog on MotoIQ after every event and give you guys an inside look at my event or race and how I switch from each discipline.


Project Nissan 350Z- Making the Chassis fully Adjustable and Getting Rid of Flex with SPL and Whiteline

Project Nissan 350Z- Making the Chassis fully Adjustable and Getting Rid of Flex with SPL and Whiteline

By Mike Kojima

We had last left our Project 350Z with much improved braking at the track with a big brake kit and other parts from Stoptech.  After her last on track foray at Buttonwillow, Sera reported to us that her 350Z was having trouble laying down power out of the turns.  On the gas her car wanted to drift immediately which was limiting how hard she could apply the throttle on corner exit.  The corner exit drift was not smooth but twitchy as well.  When drifting with stock tires, her car was not so bad but with the forces generated by big sticky NT01’s the suspension’s bushings were getting overworked causing toe changes, hurting the car's stability.

Angry Hamster EVO II: Holy Crap, I Drove it

(and now I'm deaf) 

by Dave Coleman

EVERY INSTINCT STARTS TELLING ME TO UPSHIFT AS THE DIN PASSES THE FAMILIAR DON’T-PUSH-YOUR-LUCK FREQUENCY OF 8000 RPM, BUT HAVING JUST DONE THAT IN PIT LANE, IT'S OBVIOUS NOTHING MEANINGFUL IS GOING TO HAPPEN AT SUCH LOW REVS. WITH AN ANGRY MOB OF LIKE-MINDED HALFWITS QUICKLY APPROACHING THE PART OF MY CAR THAT SHOULD BE A REAR BUMPER (BUT IS ACTUALLY A GAS TANK), I HAVE LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO PUT THE HAMMER DOWN AND EXPLORE THE UPPER FREQUENCY RANGES OF MY AUDITORY HELL IN AN EFFORT TO SEAMLESSLY BLEND WITH THE CHAOS.


 

Project Infiniti G20 Racecar: Even More Power

By Steve Rockwood

In kid's soccer, everyone gets a trophy, regardless of finishing order.  No winners, no losers.  Motorsports, on the other hand, is completely defined by whether you're winning or losing.  Unfortunately, our normally aspirated SR20 was not so mighty when compared to the other MPTCC cars, so we forced some air down its throat in the hopes of finally getting some hardware. 


 

The 50th Rolex 24 at Daytona

The 50th Rolex 24 at Daytona

By Efrain Olivares

Let's not beat around the bush. These are the hard numbers; 58 cars started the 2012 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The winning margin in the Daytona Prototype class was 5.198 seconds. The winning margin in the GT class was 9.412 seconds. The 50th Rolex 24 at Daytona lived up the hype and was a slugfest – literally and figuratively – from start to finish.

Greddy 35RX GT-R + Tarzan Yamada at Fuji Speedway, December 2011

by Eric Hsu

Back on December 10 last year, I took a short trip with Tarzan in his right hand drive PT Cruiser to Fuji Speedway so he could spend the afternoon testing the Greddy 35RX on the world famous Fuji Speedway. Greddy's goal was to hit 338kmh at the end of Fuji's front straight. But would Tarzan be able to do it with the new Bensopra body kit? A short feature on the car and that afternoon at Fuji with plenty of pics after the jump.

I've heard of spraying a head gasket with copper spray.  Is there a greater benefit to using a solid copper head gasket?

Now that we have completely beefed up the suspension and brakes of Project Honda Civic  with the Skunk2 Pro-C Coil overs and camber kit, and the Fastbrakes big brake kit, it's time to button things up with the last several suspension upgrades we had lined up for our little weekend warrior.
