GTA Road Atlanta: #teamcanada is Coming

by Frank Ewald

Canadians are known for their love of hockey. We are known for having a Tim Horton’s Coffee shop on every other corner of some cities.  We are known for putting the letter ‘u’ in words like neighbour and colour and doughnuts. We are known for being the small country above the United States of America – your northern neighbour with a much larger land mass yet a drastically smaller population. We are known around the world for being a country of polite and respectful people – accepted around the world in more places than American Express. Canadians are known for great Time Attack builds and drivers – whoa, you say! Things were going okay until that bit about Time Attack!

Project [Rotary] FD RX-7: Part 5 - Cooling Oil and Generating Spark

by M-P Spierer

Whether it's high RPM, high power density, or for some, high failure rate, the word "high" is regularly used to describe various attributes of the rotary engine.  Today we are fighting against the rotary engine's high inclination for dangerous oil temperatures and ignition break-up. This requires significant upgrades to both the oil cooling system and the ignition system...and by upgrades, we of course mean complete redesign.

Wrench Tip: How To Plug A Tire

by David Zipf

Flat tires suck. They're always a hassle and they ALWAYS come at the most inopportune or annoying times. As a former tire changer/ tire repair man, I've seen all sorts of weird stuff in people's tires. Nails, screws, screwdrivers, spark plugs, large chunks of metal (I'm not making any of those up either).  In the old days I'd be going to a repair shop to fix my tires, but these days I just do it myself.

Extreme Engine Tech: Technosquare's Monster Naturally Aspirated Toyota 4AG - Part 2

by Mike Kojima

In our last edition of the building of Technosquare's monster Toyota 4AG, we mainly looked at the details of the bottom end.  Now we will finish our tour of the bottom end and delve into the engine's cylinder head which is the heart of any high performance engine.

The 83mm x 83 mm stroker motor gives 1800cc.  The 200 extra cc's makes a huge difference, fortifying the 4AG's notoriously narrow power band. The engine cranks out over 250 crank hp, more than the most highly developed Formula Atlantic engines of yore and 30 more hp than the previous 1600 cc version of this motor. Here it is, re released again for your reading pleasure!

Nerd’s Eye View: Erik Buell Racing 1190RX

by Khiem Dinh

When your average guy thinks of a sport bike, typically Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki come to mind from the land of the rising sun. For those with more means, Ducati, Aprilia, and MV Agusta from the land of love are the crotch rockets of choice. Even the Germans have jumped into the fray in relatively recent times with BMW launching an assault on the established players from Japan and Italy. When it comes to America, Harley Davidson comes to mind with big rumbling V-twins in big hogs. But there is a glimmer of hope.

Vetting the Vet's Vettes – A Look Inside MTI Racing

by Erik M Jacobs

Reese Cox cut his teeth behind the wheel of a Corvette, and his experience shows. In 1993, during the heyday of his time as team manager for Tommy Morrison Racing leading ZR-1 Corvettes through the 24 HRS of Daytona and other IMSA series, Reese founded MTI (Motorsports Technologies Incorporated) Racing. The 1998 SCCA World Challenge Rookie of the Year knows a thing or two about making these sleek bowties fast and powerful, and he was kind enough to open the doors of their shop to MotoIQ. Inside, we found a lot more than just some fast coupes.
