by Chuck Johnson

Photos by Joe Lu

In our last update, we left off having just set a new Bonneville H/PS land speed record at 184.1 MPH.  On the second of the two record passes, Project 240SX LSR and its 600 plus horsepower 1.5 L engine, had recorded a fastest speed of 191.9 MPH.  With more than enough power on tap, our goal of pushing the record to over 200 MPH seemed well within reach. Did we get the coveted infamous red hat? Or did we just spin trying? Read on to find out.

Project Miatabusa part 18, Research and Destruction

Project Miatabusa Part 18, Research and Destruction

by Dave Coleman

It has been so long since our last update that you could be forgiven for dismissing Project Miatabusa as dead and forgotten. It is not.

It has, in fact, moved forward in such complex bursts of productivity that there was little time to document it as it happened. And then, frankly, I forgot some of it. What follows is my best recollection of what the hell just happened.

Sneak Peek: Ford GT Street Car vs. Race Car

by Khiem Dinh

Photos courtesy of Ford Media Center

Back in 2005, Ford brought back the Ford GT as a halo car. Ten years later, Ford dropped a new GT at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. It features a carbon fiber monocoque with a 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine not far removed from the Roush Yates engine used in the IMSA Daytona Prototypes. So it came as no surprise when Ford showed off a race version at the 2015 24 Heures du Mans. After all, being in France, there’s the whole romance of 2016 being 50 years since Ford won Le Mans. There’s not much in the way of photos, but we can glean a little bit in what it takes to convert a street car into an endurance race car.

King Bearings Announces Oversized XPG Main Bearings For Subaru EJ

Industry Press Release

King Engine Bearings has just released two new oversized main bearing kits for the Subaru EJ series engines. Due to the nature of the Subaru split-block boxer engine design,  where two halves of the engine are fastened together around the crankshaft, there can often be distortion or misalignment even on new engine blocks. This distortion can lead to uneven main bearing wear and occasionally bearing failure due to insufficient lubrication and overloading of the bearing surface material. Main line bore distortion can also occur in new blocks that have been assembled using high strength case fasteners, which are common in racing and high performance engine builds.

Upgraded NX: Breaking 10!

by Frank Ewald

Breaking the ten second barrier in the quarter mile in any vehicle is an accomplishment. In a front wheel drive car perhaps even more so. The challenge is even greater for Carlos Joseph, who has his sights aimed at breaking the ten second mark in his 1993 Nissan NX2000. There are very few Nissan's with the FWD SR20 based engine that have accomplished this, but I think that Carlos is going to make it happen in his AES Automotive built NX2000.

Project V8 RX-7: Wheel, Brake and Tire 3 PART MEGAPOST!

Part 3 - The Wheels and Tires Meet the Brakes and Body Kit

by Jeff Naeyaert

In Part 1 of our Wheel, Brake and Tire miniseries, we ordered a set of SSR Professor SP4 wheels for our RX-7 from Tanabe and were patiently enduring the two month wait for them to be built in Japan. During that time we fitted our car with a Stoptech Trophy big brake kit (in Part 2) hoping they would clear the wheels.  Right on schedule our wheels arrived and we were able to pick them up from Tanabe's facility in Torrance!  In Part 3 we’ll finally see how close all our guesses were to being “good enough”!

Project Autocross BRZ: Dodging Cones With GT Radial

by Bart Hockerman

“Who is GT Radial?”

That was the 1st words out of everyone's mouth when reading the SCCA Solo Contingency Program page. 

What seemed to be a more known name on the West Coast was virtually unknown throughout the rest of the country. The next big question is “What tire do they have that we will want to use?”
