Project Sim Racer: Part 2 - Let's Go Racing!

by Erik Jacobs

When we left Project Sim Racer in Part 1, we had just finished constructing our cockpit and outfitting it with controls from Logitech. Now it is time to get to gaming! I mean driving! I mean driving in the games! OK, whatever!

In this segment we will evaluate two extremely popular simulators: iRacing and rFactor 2. If I had to choose between these two titles, I would have a very, very tough time. They both are excellent, both have their advantages, and both have their disadvantages. It really depends on what you’re after. Read on and make your own decision.

Japanese Cars Suck!

by Mike Kojima

As a hardcore Japanese car enthusiast, it pains me to write this. I have seen the Japanese car phenomena go full circle first hand. When I was a little kid, adults used to snicker and the funny little weird crap boxes that were first imported from Japan by Datsun, Toyota and then Honda. The cars were small, underpowered and quirky. There were some standouts like the Datsun 240Z, the Toyota 2000GT and 510 that were pretty cool cars but for the most part, no one cared.

The Continual Beginner

by Christy Carlson

Repetition leads to boredom. Boredom leads to unrest. Unrest leads to new beginnings. Well, that, and running out of means will force a person to "reconsider the options available" in a fairly brisk manner. I've been precariously balancing the pocketbook of life for a while, be it health or wealth, youth and unrest, ambition and means. This is my life in motorsports, starting at 25.

Honeywell Garrett Boost Festival 2017: Part 1- Global Time Attack

by Karla Pestotnik

Global Time Attack is known to be the premier Time Attack series in Northern America, and arguably, in the western hemisphere of the globe. This isn’t MotoIQ’s first rodeo at another wildly successful GTA event, and it is far from being Global Time Attack’s first highly publicized, sold out competition. GTA teamed up with Honeywell Garrett for Boost Fest 2017, taking place at Southern California’s Streets of Willow Springs Raceway. Hundreds of teams and spectators made the trek to cold and windy Rosemond, CA, in order to pursue and find who can put down the quickest lap times.

Drivers that are willing to risk it all for one hot lap are heavily rewarded at this track…however, isn’t that the very nature of Time Attack? This is why we love the sport, so let’s see what crazy competition there was and who brought their best!

Project E46 M3: Part 18 – Project M3 vs E90 M3 V8

By Pablo Mazlumian

We were pleased with our S54 3.2-liter in stock form, and the goal was to bring it up to V8 M3 performance. Was a 12% power improvement and 90-lb fat reduction enough? Find out inside! We test them to speed and in the quarter-mile. We also compare them from 30-100 MPH in third gear to compare low- and mid-range torque for you track guys! And why not--we even throw in a Mustang GT 5.0 in there...

Most of us have a daily-driven vehicle that sees year-round driving.

We’ve compiled 10 things to consider when readying your car for the upcoming warm season. Doing these things will not only ensure better fuel economy and overall performance, but increased life of the vehicle itself.

Sneak Peek: Global Time Attack Cars Round 1

by Khiem Dinh

The first round of Global Time Attack 2017 was held at Streets of Willow as part of the Honeywell Garrett (formerly Air Research, Allied Signal, Garrett, Turbo by Garrett, Garrett by Honeywell, and maybe a couple other names I’m forgetting) Boost Fest. The thing we like about the cars and drivers at GTA is it’s still all very grassroots. Not many people with crazy budgets, a lot of homebrew economic performance enhancers, you know, stuff your average car nut can relate to in their own garage.

Project E46 M3: Part 17 – The preferred exhaust setup and more AEM tuning by MKC

by Pablo Mazlumian

Life would be a lot easier if we'd stayed with the stock headers, but when we tested our VAC headers in Part 3, the increase in power was too much to let go. Since then, we've tried different header-back systems but they either were too loud, droned at low RPM, or didn't fit all too well. Today, however, we think we've found something that works great and doesn't break the bank. Dynos graphs and video clips inside!

A Ride with VCMC AutoCross!

by Frank Ewald

Like most of you, everyone here at MotoIQ loves automobiles and motorsports have obviously been an interest for years. Taking our cars out for a track day are an absolute highlight. Time Attack. ChumpCar World Series and ChumpCar Canada. Simply attending races of various levels over the years and even being privileged enough to photograph some of these events. However, unlike some of the enthusiasts at MotoIQ who have participated in everything, this writer has never attended an AutoCross event.  Anywhere. Not even as a spectator! So when VCMC provided an invitation to join in their Autocross Warm-Up, signing up was not a question.

Grassroots Drifting: Tennessee Based & Battle Tested

by Taylor Haney

Grassroots drifting or automotive racing in itself already creates a sense of camaraderie through sportsmanship and love for the sport. If you add in being a military veteran on top of that, you create a strong melting pot that resembles more of a family than a team. The Clarksville, Tennessee-based drift organization Battle Tested Motorsports did just that with 15 out of 16 members being military veterans, active duty or reserve.

Project S550 Part 3: Looking Better with Wide Project6gr Seven Wheels, Cervinis Ram Air Hood, AirDesign Front Fascia & More!

by Nathan Brummer

In our last update, we focused on improving the stock handling of Project S550. While we still have some suspension work to do (and we have some big plans in mind), we’re going to pause on that while we turn our attention to the car’s appearance. The 2015 Mustang has become extremely popular and they look great right out of the box but, given that popularity, we need to do something to make this project stand out from every other Mustang on the street. We’re not looking to do anything extreme or over the top, so we’ll concentrate on making subtle changes that accentuate Ford’s already stellar design.

Project Lexus SC300 Road Racer: Part 9 - Begin Rewiring at the... Back?

by Erik Jacobs

After over a year of slow and methodical removal, preparation, and planning, it is finally time. We held our noses and closed our eyes and clicked the button to place an order with MilSpecWiring. Dozens of connectors, hundreds of feet of wire, heat shrink tubing, buttons, pins, tools, and other supplies were finally on their way. And on the day they arrived, the panic truly set in. We actually had to finally build everything.
