Project Ford Fiesta ST- Improving the Suspension With Suspension Techniques

by Mike Kojima

If you love performance compact cars, then you should really be paying close attention and focusing your next purchase intent on The Ford Fiesta ST.  The Fiesta ST is basically the same joint Ford, Mazda 2 platform that we loved so much as a B Spec racer.  We felt the chassis handled well but was lacking power in gobs.  Well Ford fixed the problem in a big way with the Fiesta ST by dropping in a turbocharged direct injection Ecoboost 1.6 liter engine with a six speed manual transaxle that delivers 197 hp and  good mileage together in a package that leaves you grinning from ear to ear.

Project Honda Ruckus - Part One

by Jeff Naeyaert

Enjoy a Throwback Thursday to one of our very first projects!  In typical MotoIQ fashion we decided that our Ruck was going to need some help in the suspension, handling and brakes department before we increased the power to help keep things safe.  We had almost rear ended cars due to weak brakes and ended up doing a flying W by hitting a water dip at 35 mph on the street. Although this sounds somewhat comical, it was not safe and had to be addressed.

What the F-Stop: Event Coverage from Behind the Camera Lens

by Sarah Forst

There's just something invigorating about the smell of race gas in the morning, the smoke produced by tires screeching, and the high pitched wail of a high horsepower engine going all out. And while I'd love to be on track owning that racket, I am just as excited to be covering it from behind a camera. From Formula Drift at Road Atlanta to 24 Hours of Nurburgring, my lame attempts at photography ("needs more blur"- thanks Jeff!) have taken me places I couldn't have dreamt about being so close to the action. And at the end of the day when I'm covered in rubber, drenched in either sweat or God's tears, and have claw hand from holding the camera grip for hours, I still have a smile on my sunburnt face.

NX GTi-R: The Search for Traction

by Frank Ewald

At Canadian Tire Motorsport Park the car with Hoosier R6 205 50 15s ran 1:47 with the GA16DE powerplant. At the same track the same fast driver, Katie, took the car with Toyo RA1 225 45 50s around at a time of 1:40 with the SR20DET. That is a good jump, but with a 200 whp gain I wanted more! You have to be in the car to realize how much speed is being lost exiting corners. It simply cannot find traction.

Project MKVI Golf TDI: Dieselgeek "Panzer" Heavy Duty Aluminum Skid Plate

by Jeff Naeyaert

In our last update we were impressed so much with our Dieselgeek shifter we took a look at some of the other products Dieselgeek makes for our MKVI Golf and found a nice skid pan or as Dieselgeek calls it—Panzer Plate.   We’re not sure if the name is paying homage to the old German tank or the literal meaning of the word meaning “armor” but we get it…  It’s a tough ass piece of aluminum bent to fit underneath the engine and protect all the vital stuff that’s vulnerable to impact now that we’re riding considerably lower than stock.
