We constantly complain about how NASCAR doesn’t like racing in the rain. It’s the butt of every joke about the biggest racing series in North America. So, we at the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championships will always race come snow, sleet, hail or… Wait, we canceled Round 1 because of rain?! Well, what are we to do? Go karting at K1 Speed in Torrance, CA, that's what!
When Nitto Tires sent us the release on Loren Healy’s win at the 2014 King of the Hammers, it was a momentous occasion. When you consider what it takes to win the King of the Hammers, it is amazing any truck survives. We take a moment during Nitto’s celebration of Loren Healy to look at the truck and do a Sneak Peek to see what it takes and what you bring back other than a trophy.

After all the breaking news about Nexen last week, drivers were still in shock by the time MotoIQ Radio was to be aired. Now that a week has passed, we'll now see what two former Nexen drivers are doing for 2014. We'll first have Joon Maeng on to discuss what the next step is for him after some pretty big changes from last year. Then we'll have Kyle Mohan on to talk about his program and see how progress is being made on the Mazdatrix RX-8. While the MPTCC couldn't play in the rain, Global Time Attack's ProAm Shift Sector decided that Buttonwillow was dry enough to hold their first two rounds. We'll talk to Stephanie Cemo and Yukio Taira about that and how wet Buttonwillow really was.
The second event in the 2014 Rally America series took place last weekend in the foothills of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, with stages spread amongst the towns of Salem, Steelville, and Potosi. The scenic backdrop named after the fabled home of Winnie the Pooh is a favorite for spectators, with drivers enjoying the fast, flowing, and dusty gravel roads. The weather seems to be dramatically different every year, fortunately last year’s snow and ice wasn’t repeated for this event, although passing heavy rains on Thursday would leave some stages rather slippery throughout the weekend.
I know I know, it’s been months since we first introduced you to Yost Autosport’s Project #YAE92 M3 endurance race car build, but we have a good excuse. Truth be told, the past few months have been slow moving on this project as we entered the R&D phase. We’re helping a number of companies develop new products for the E9X M3 platform and when you do that, things tend to end up in an engineering black hole.
Project Mustang gets a bunch of parts for the next season to improve throttle response, braking, and gauge information!

Buttonwillow Raceway, a track synonymous with Time Attack in North America. With its multiple configurations, it's a favorite among track enthusiasts as well.

In looking for more low hanging horsepower fruit for Project 350Z, we decided to try an intake manifold plenum spacer from MotorDyne Engineering. The 350Z's VQ35DE engine has a very thin intake manifold plenum that slopes toward the front of the engine to clear the low hood line. Although this is good for styling, the engine would prefer more plenum volume and the flow to the front most cylinders is somewhat choked off due to the low overhanging plenum wall.
