by Martin Gonzales

Your nerd herd may have missed last year's World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC), but thanks to the amazing team over at BorgWarner we are heading back down under! We can't begin to tell you just how excited we are to be making the trip over to Sydney Motorsports Park again, as this event has really made a mark in the the time attack world. Every past WTAC has been filled with excitement and controversy, and there's no reason to think this year would be any different. Will the Tilton Evo defend its title?

Plastic is Fantastic – The Polystrand GT-Lite Project

by Jonathan Spiegel

The racing environment is an excellent arena for the development of new technology, as it allows for components and systems to be exposed to extreme operating conditions in a controlled environment, and offers a competitive venue that rewards anything that improves performance. Enhanced acceleration, braking, handling, and fuel economy are all properties that are highly valued both on and off the racetrack. To that end, let us introduce the Polystrand GT-Lite Project, a tool designed to allow us to experiment with thermoplastic composite suspension design.

Datsun 510: Are You Sure?

by Frank Ewald - with John Paul Ellis

John Paul’s 510 was not running. Sitting for a dozen years it actually was in the way more than once, and was sometimes moved with less attention to its history than it deserved. It was not forgotten; but it was derelict and at risk of sitting forever. It came with a 1.8 L series engine that was used in vintage endurance racing. Initially considering keeping the blood lines in the family a CA18DET was thought about. Then a KA24DE engine was considered - it was even placed into the engine bay. So was a built SR20VE drivetrain. Purchases were made and plans were in place, but then J-P tossed them all out and moved to a 9000 RPM AP1 Honda S2000 engine. It is not the first time that an S2000 engine has been transplanted into a Datsun 510. But no other 1973 Datsun 510 comes with the history that this two door model contains.

Project 370Z - ARK Design Superflow Exhaust Test

by Clint Boisdeau

So Project 370Z has not seen a power part upgrade since the first installment of the series which included the AEM “E.T.I.” cold air intake nearly 3 years ago.  Despite the Fairlady’s solid power to weight ratio as it stands, a bit more power, sound, and weight reduction from an aftermarket cat back exhaust system was desired.  With the help of ARK Design USA, the exhaust side of Project 370Z was going to see its first step in unlocking some power and performance oriented notes.

GarageLove: A Corner Station In My Backyard

by Per Schroeder

A friend of mine pointed out that that it was pretty funny that many of the houses he saw on his morning commute had a corner station in the backyard. Puzzled, I asked RJ what the heck he was talking about. "Gazebos—everyone has a prefabbed gazebo on their property it seems—that’s what a lot of race tracks use as worker stations."

Event Coverage: Hagley Classic Car Show

by David Zipf

Fun fact: The DuPont company is based in Delaware.  In fact if you travel the Wilmington/Greenville/Hockessin area, the landscape is dotted with past and present DuPont family households.  The past DuPont estates are amazing: Beautiful tracts of East Appalachian land dotted with 150+ year old buildings.  Many of the original 1800s estates have been turned into public museums to help preserve the history of the DuPonts.  One of Delaware’s crowning jewels is Hagley Museum which is one such former estate: In its previous life, Hagley was the first powder mill founded in Delaware by E.I. DuPont in 1802. Every September 600 cars show up to Hagley and are put on display.  The only rule is all vehicles must be at least 25 years old.  Some amazing automotive history turns up each year and we were able to snap some pictures of the event.

Kevin Mullins' Record Setting Mustang

by Erik Jacobs

An interesting guy once said that drag racing is “an exercise in keeping your eyes pointed forwards in your head”. While that might be the case for your run-of-the-mill street car, Kevin Mullins' 1997 Drag Radial Mustang requires an obscene level of coordination of myriad systems to propel it down the track at a world record pace.

Project SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S 

by Mike Kojima

MotoIQ is teaming up with the good folks at The GTChannel to produce a Scion FR-S for the SEMA Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge.  The Challenge will be between Speedhunters, Superstreet and GTChannel/MotoIQ to see which media group can build the best FR-S with the car to be displayed at the SEMA Show in the Scion Booth.

We figure that our competitors at Speedhunters and Superstreet will be putting out cars with a heavy emphasis on cosmetics, most likely with special bodywork done by Kei Mura of TRA-Kyoto fame or something like that. We also figure that Superstreet will probably outsource their build and will have a much bigger corporate fired budget than us. Speedhunters seems to be working on their build by themselves so hats off to them!

Canadian Automobile Sports Club - Ontario Region:

Celebration of Motorsport

by Frank Ewald

Celebration of Motorsport is the CASC-OR's final race of the season. It was held at the beautiful Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (formerly known as Mosport) just a short drive North-East of Toronto. The weather was in the mid-twenties Celcius (mid-seventies for those of you used to Fahrenheit) and the 3.957 kilometre long track (2.459 miles) was perfect. Sunshine with barely a cloud in the sky. The kind of weather that you long for when you are camping - which I was - and that you dream for if you are racing.

Tested: EBC Brakes Long Term Review

by David Zipf

Most CR-V owners will go to their nearest dealership or trusted mechanic’s shop and get whatever brake deal is being offered.  But this is MotoIQ…why would we put boring old Honda or off-brand parts on one of our cars?  Besides that, the plan for this CR-V was to be a useful trucklet.  It needed to be able to go off-road, haul people, drive cross country, and tow small trailers.  With that in mind, it seemed prudent to install something better than what Honda originally gave the car.  Civics and Integras are popular platforms and have a seemingly endless supply of brake options.  The CR-V?  Not so much. Luckily EBC came to the rescue.

Nerd’s Eye View: Ducati 1199 Superleggera

by Khiem Dinh

Sport bikes are the closest things you can easily buy that are track ready. They come with adjustable suspension, titanium valves, sticky tires, and typically lightweight aluminum frames. You can basically take off the mirrors, get rid of the lights, swap tires and brake pads and go racing in AMA Supersport class. But then there are bikes like the Ducati Superleggera. Actually, the Superleggera is really the only bike of its type that you can buy.
