Piech's Hot Rod: Porsche 914/8

By Mark Zimmerman

You develop Porsche’s racing program in the late sixties, rewriting their racing history from race to race, win to win. Your team is developing faster and wilder racers, putting you in reach of the company’s first Le Mans outright victory. So what do you do when you are handed the responsibilities of developing the company’s new entry car platform? If you are Ferdinand Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, you jam the biggest racing engine in it that will fit.

Project MKVII Golf R: Part 1 - Introduction

by Isaac Sandoval

I finally decided to give in and buy a German made car. Perhaps it’s the clever marketing that captured me this time, but I want to believe it was the clever engineering that drew me to the 2016 MKVII Volkswagen Golf R. While some of the rivals in the segment (WRX STI, and discontinued Evolution) have used the same stale drivetrain for several generations, Volkswagen has taken a different route and the result is a modern drivetrain package consisting of a direct injected turbo four-cylinder as well as a refined double clutch transmission and torque vectoring AWD system. This most recent addition to the MotoIQ project car fleet is a real wolf in sheep's clothing, and in this article we will take a look at some of the cool features of this project car.

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.

Project G20 Race Car: Building a More Bulletproof SR20DE!

by Mike Kojima

The good old stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar has been doing yeoman duty, reliably lasting for the last few years racing in the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship and doing many for-fun track days.  The stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar came from a Japanese engine importer and has never been opened up, other than to add big cams back when we used to run the car in N/A trim.  For the past three years the engine has been turbocharged which has greatly increased the strain it's experienced.

MagnaFlow Launches Its Cat-Back For The 2016 Focus RS

Industry Press Release

Ford’s turbocharged hatchbacks in the US have given enthusiasts something they’ve wanted for a long time; budget-friendly, practical performance. The ST line has that covered, but now the Focus community has its very own halo car, the 350 horsepower, 2016 Focus RS. The factory exhaust has a nice tone with some rally-inspired crackles at full throttle, but MagnaFlow always figures out a way to add more volume, a deeper tone and more power and has done so with its latest system for the RS.

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.

"My Girlfriend's" Miata: Part 6 - Gingerman Raceway Baseline

by Daniel O'Donnell

As luck would have it, the girlfriend had to work out of town and the semi-local track that we do all of our testing for the Professional Awesome Evo, Gingerman Raceway, was hosting a weekend track day. This would be the perfect opportunity to take the Miata, with or without her knowledge, up to the track. With tech and driving support from PA Motorsports owner, Grant Davis, it looked like the perfect opportunity to take the car around this wonderfully challenging racetrack to get some data on what the Miata could do. With the roll bar, seats, brakes and cooling system ready to go, it was also a great time to track test these systems to ensure everything was up to snuff and baseline the car for future improvements.

Project E90 M3: Part 5 – K&N Filter

by Billy Johnson

We gave our M3 a quick and easy bump in power by swapping out the factory air filter for the industry-leading High Performance K&N air filter.  We have seen some impressive gains from K&N products and feel there’s no reason you shouldn’t have one on every car you own!  But how much power can really be gained over the OEM BMW air filter in this highly stressed and finely tuned 8,250rpm screaming V8?  Read on to find out!

Project Viper Part 7 Heatshield Products Cover

Project VIPER GTS: Part 7 – HeatShield Products

by Billy Johnson

From coolant to cabin temperatures, Vipers are notoriously hot due to having one of the largest engines ever stuffed inside a sportscar.  To combat this problem we turn to the thermal insulation experts at HeatShield Products to keep the heat in the exhaust system to lower the temperature inside the cabin and side sills.  Hopefully we will prevent our side sills from discoloring and burning our legs when getting in and out of the car without proper clothing and ingress/egress technique.

Ghostwalk the Whip: Fixing Subaru Bump Steer with Whiteline Bushings

by Daniel O'Donnell (With language assistance for Subaru owners in bold)

There aren’t many more usable vehicles than a Subaru Outback (Scooby Vapewagon). Mild off-roading to your next rock climbing trip? Easy-peasy. Need to take your Australian Cattle Dogs to the vegan dog park? Donezo. Hauling your butch friend Karen and all her camping gear to Beaver Island for a weekend under the stars? Legally, only Subarus are allowed to perform that task. Yet with all these wonderful positives, there’s one annoying issue that nearly makes all these points moot, over time Outbacks can develop terrible rear bump steer (totes gnar dorifto).
