Turbo Tech:  Turbo Bearings

By Khiem Dinh

We like turbos at MotoIQ.  Why?  In the phrase made famous by Tim Allen, "more power!"  In order for a turbo to cram air into an engine, it has a pair of wheels and a shaft spinning at incredible speeds.  Depending on the size of the turbo, they can spin anywhere from 100,000 rpm (big turbos) to 300,000 rpm (small turbos).  300,000 rpm equals 5000 revs a second.  Put another way, if you rolled a compressor wheel on the ground, it would go about six football fields a second.  That's about 1.7 times the speed of sound.  Wrap your head around that!

Project V8 RX-7: Part 4 - Dressing the E-Rod

By Jeff Naeyaert

So we’ve got our E-Rod kit, unpacked everything and laid it all out, but curiously missing are all the spinny things that go on the front of the engine—more specifically, the alternator, power steering pump, a/c compressor and the other pulleys and tensioners necessary to keep everything playing together nicely.

Professionally Awesome - A look inside Professional Awesome's EVO VII Street Class Time Attack Challenger

By Mike Kojima

We first spotted Team Professional Awesome's EVO VII at last year's Redline Time Attack at Cal Speedway.  To be honest, it was not the car that first attracted us but the name of the team.  After looking the car over, we knew at once that this was a well constructed and balanced car.

Formula D Round 3: Palm Beach International Raceway

By Justin Banner

"Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable." - General George S. Patton

Ladies and Gentlemen, Formula Drift has just decided to declare war on the lack of Professional Drifting in Florida and their battleground is the Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida! This multiple use facility has hosted drag racing, open wheel cars, karts, and even concerts. Surrounded by marshland, this land has made its mark on racing by being difficult, even for the best drivers. However, PBIR is conquerable, although it will require knowledge of the track, including its history, and the general area of Jupiter and West Palm Beach!
