Project Fried Turkey

Project: Fried Turkey

MotoIQ Staff Report

Well, the holiday season is upon us and we decided we were going to cook something MotoIQ style which means it has to be technical and dangerous.  What better thing to cook than a fried turkey?  Frying a turkey gets the job done in only 45 minutes and leaves you with a succulent and tasty bird with very little hassle and an easy clean up.

Project Bucket: EP3 Honda Civic Si

by Mike Kojima

What, I said, your brother in law wants to sell his Civic Si for $500?  I was speaking to one of my friends who thought I might be interested in this deal.  What's wrong with it? Does it run? Has it been wrecked?  Is it stolen?  No, my friend said, it's in great shape and runs fine with about 100k miles on it.  Everything works, he just doesn't want it anymore.  What's the catch? I asked. I dunno said my friend, it's a 2003 Si.

3.5 Seconds: Street FWD Record Obliterated at SuperLap Battle!

Global Time Attack: SuperLap Battle at Buttonwillow!

by Frank Ewald

If you follow Global Time Attack, you will likely recognize this car and driver. Boersma Racing is no newcomer to GTA or the SLB. In 2013 he was at Buttonwillow and won street FWD class - even though it was his first time on the course. Chris won street class at Road Atlanta in the spring of 2015. Dominating the class with a fastest overall time of 1:35.8 and breaking the previous Street FWD record by over nine seconds. His time was the fastest Street time - period. Better than both RWD and AWD. Any question of his intentions were made completely evident when, during the first timed session at Buttonwillow on Wednesday morning, before the track was really even warmed up, he broke Ken Suen's long standing Street FWD record of 1 minute 55.6 seconds with a time of 1:53.962. And, then, almost every time he went back out onto the track he further obliterated the former record.

LS3 V8 RX-7 Accusump

Project V8 RX-7:  More Oiling Insurance From Improved Racing, Accusump and Earl's (Part 1 of 2)

by Jeff Naeyaert

It’s no secret the LS family of engines can have oil starvation issues particularly on the racetrack. In high-g turns oil is forced to once side of the pan leaving the oil pickup dry and thus starving the oil pump and the engine's components of oil. Catastrophic damage can result in as little as a few seconds depending on engine speed.  We already installed an Improved Racing oil pan baffle, today we'll go one step further to protect our E-Rod LS3!

Project Professional Awesome Time Attack Evo: Driver Safety Part 1 (Being Safe and Looking Like a Million Bucks While Doing It)

by Daniel O'Donnell

There’s an interesting thing I’ve learned when it comes to safety in racing. It’s never a priority until you’ve had you first experience with a concrete barrier. Concrete puts a new perspective on life. One starts to plan and prepare to reduce chances of injuries if a second experience were to occur. An accident will also have you reevaluating the quality of equipment you use. Gone are the days when a borrowed motorcycle helmet with a missing visor and paint chips seem like a wise tool to protect your noggin.

No Rest For the Studious: The Story of the University of Delaware BHR14 (Part 2)

by David Zipf

A few months ago, we shared the first part of the tale of how a small SAE team in Delaware began building their car for the 2014 season.  We left off with a few CAD renderings and teaser shots of mills and saws doing mill and saw stuff.  Well now it’s time to get into the meat and bones of this build, which is of course the build itself!  We pick up in October 2013, when the design process was still ongoing, but finalized enough to begin turning tube to car.

Lake Mills Cars & Coffee

by Connor Harrison

Cars & Coffee, the original, started off as a way for a few friends in California to meet up and enjoy some caffeinated brews while chatting about their cars. Apparently, this was a pretty good idea, as it grew into an automotive mega-meet that would play host to droves of all variety of vehicle you never thought you’d be able to stand and stare at in-person. Since its inception, it has grown too big for its own good and had to dissipate due to not having a venue sizable enough to host it. The success of the original inevitably spawned many similar events and gatherings across the country, a few of which we’ve featured here. One such event popped up in the sleepy small town  of Lake Mills, WI.

Nerd’s Eye View: Porsche 962

by Khiem Dinh

The original Cars & Coffee in SoCal is no more, but a number of smaller ones have sprung up filling the void. One is hosted by Pelican Parts (Porsche specialists) every three months in Palos Verdes, located roughly between LAX and Long Beach. This is actually relatively close to me, so instead of having to wake up at 5:30am to hop into the car to drive down to Irvine, I woke up at 6am to hop on the bicycle to ride down to PV.

Project Honda Civic EJ Finale: Dyno Results and Lap Times

by Chuck Johnson

Back in 2011, we introduced Project Honda Civic EJ to the readers of MotoIQ.  Originally, the goal of the project was to take Annie’s beat down 1997 Honda Civic with over 260,000 miles on it and restore it back to the formidable yet reliable street and track machine it once was.  All this, while keeping to a reasonable budget. However, what could only be described as massive scope creep ensued. Now four years later, Project Honda Civic EJ has finally come to an end... or to a new beginning?

Pocket Size Terror - Building a CRG ICC Shifter Kart

by Mike Kojima

If you are a long term reader of MotoIQ you have probably seen some of our stories on karting. We think that karting provides excellent low cost training for racing cars and for some of us it's actually harder than driving a car.

So we have several karts in our palatial shop, everything ranging from 100cc air cooled HPV karts to 125cc senior Tag karts.  These karts are all pretty good and the 125's are really fast.  So of course we had to do something even more extreme by building a shifter kart.  Not just any shifter kart but an open class ICC kart.

Road Racing Tire Setup Part 1: Compound Selection & Sizing

by Steve Rockwood

Tires. Every road racer has them on his or her mind. If things are going well, tires are the car’s only interface with the track, making tire choice the single most important decision a road racer can make. Unsurprisingly, their price reflects their importance: over a season, short of wrecks and major mechanical overhauls, more money is spent on tires than on any other item for the car. Better make it count.

Extreme Engine Tech, Building a High Boost 2JZ-GTE with Brian Crower and JE Pistons-Part 1

By Mike Kojima

Building a 2JZ-GTE is not new on the pages of MotoIQ.  Pablo Mazlumian documented the building of a pretty healthy 2JZ in his Project Supra chronicles over the past couple years. We like the 2JZ powerplant.  It is a strong, robust powerplant capable of sustaining well over 1000 hp and has been competition proven in everything from time attack to drifting.  It is still quite a viable engine 23 years after it was introduced.
