The Blitz Electronic Supercharged Toyota Yaris!

by Mike Kojima

The Toyota Yaris has been a vehicle that has pretty much been universally panned by the performance aftermarket. Can you really blame the aftermarket though, the Yaris was not designed for any sort of fun nor would it win any beauty contests.

by Khiem Dinh

Outside of the BMW and Porsche booths, there were a handful of cars which caught my attention. Of course, there were the track day toys from GM and Ford, but I’ve already shown you guys those cars back at SEMA. So what other cars caught my attention? Well, it’s an odd bunch likely due to my ADD.

Squirrel Power: Saving a Suzuki FA50

by David Zipf

You may remember when we were battling the power steering in our Project VehiCross, that the biggest reason we got so hosed (no pun intended) was I had no way of getting myself to the parts store for things like crush washers, coolant, or big buckets.  With only one functioning car, we needed something else to get us around when we were wrenching on our daily driver.  See how we rescued and resurrected a forgotten scooter that hadn't turned a wheel in over a decade.

Wrench Tip: Get a Jewelry Cleaner

by David Zipf

Cleaning small parts can be a real hassle.  If you’re rebuilding, say, a carburetor, with lots of little jets, needles, and pins and screws, it can be very easy to break or lose something.  Some parts refuse to come clean, even when scrubbed with strong solvents (brake calipers are a great example of this).  So what’s a car guy to do?

Celica GTS: Kyle's Time Attack Car!

by Frank Ewald

The Toyota Celica is a car that, if you are like me, you have probably admired and enjoyed over the years. And then wondered why it vanished from the lineup. Over the decades that Toyota produced this model they have been both fire breathing dragons and then merely enjoyable sporty type cars. Kyle Beaty's Celica GTS was the later. A sporty type car that began it's life with him nine years ago, as his first car and basic get around vehicle. The chassis of Kyle's Celica now has 380 000 kilometres or 236 000 miles on it. He has owned this 1990 model since he was seventeen. His first car. The one he drove to high school.

Robby Gordon Brings The Holley HydraMat to Stadium Super Trucks

Industry Press Release

Every motorsport poses its own unique challenges for fuel supply. In drag racing, cars leave the starting line at three G's or more, depending on the level of racing. In stock car racing, fuel is constantly being pulled to the outside of the car as they make turns at high speeds on speedways all over America. In drifting and road racing, cars are under immense G's not only from acceleration and cornering, but also braking. As demanding as these environments are, the Stadium Super Truck Series might just be the most demanding from a fuel supply standpoint. Not only do these trucks accelerate, brake, and corner hard, but they also go over huge jumps, literally adding an additional dimension to the fuel supply equation.
