"My Fiancée's" Miata: Part 8 - Whiteline Roll Bars and Track Test

by Daniel O'Donnell

In Part 6 of our ongoing Miata project, we got to spend a lovely day tracking the car and finding out its good and bad traits. One of the most glaring problems, at least from the driver’s confidence standpoint, was a massive amount of body roll in the corners. Body roll, in and of itself, isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the world, especially as our Miata is at the stock ride height. It didn’t appear that we were running out of shock travel and we didn’t notice any exaggerated or strange tire wear, confirming that the suspension was working more or less as designed. That being said, it didn’t exactly inspire confidence. The car would set into a turn and take significant time to transfer load if I had quickly change directions. To improve the dynamics of the Miata and not feel like we’d roll over and off the track, the body roll had to be rectified.

Project S550 Mustang GT: Part 6 – Installing a Radium Engineering Coolant Expansion Tank and Dual Oil Catch Can

by Nathan Brummer

Recently one of our other Project Mustangs, The Grey 5.0, installed a very slick looking Radium Engineering expansion tank. I instantly fell in love with the way the tank looked and, after reading the benefits of the tank in the article, I was sold. I got in contact with our friends over at Radium and ordered their expansion tank, 2015 Mustang 1.5 bar radiator cap, as well as their dual catch can system.

Project S550 Mustang GT: Part 5 - Addressing Wheel Hop and Alignment Capabilities with BMR Suspension!

by Nathan Brummer

First off, we know most of you hate the “air’d out look”, but we are really liking the looks of it for a street car and liking the multi-function capabilities of the shocks. We know it’s been a few months since our last update, but rest assured we’ve been hard at work abusing the car and getting things sorted out. It's probably good to pick up where we last left off, and that’s with the suspension. Overall, the suspension has performed very well, but there are still two main areas that need some attention. The first is the slight wheel hop we’re encountering under very hard launches. The second is the limitation of the rear alignment capabilities due to the stock components. We plan to address both areas in this update.

Project C7 Corvette Stingray Z51: Suspension Upgrades

by Mike Kojima

In previous articles about our Project C7 Corvette, we got into the high tech chassis construction of the C7 that rivals the stuff found in exotic cars for a fraction of the price. We also did our baseline testing of the car at Buttonwillow Raceway to get an initial impression of the car. We were quite impressed with the results. In stock form, the Corvette is one of those cars that is so good from the factory that heavy-handed, poorly conceived aftermarket suspension mods can ruin.

Project Sim Racer: Part 4 - Project Cars 2 Review

by Erik Jacobs

Having constructed a quality sim rig and then upgraded it with even better controls, I’ve spent a fair bit of time putting in laps on both iRacing and rFactor 2. A while back, an associate offered to make an introduction to the folks at Slightly Mad Studios, the creator of Project Cars. The introduction came very early in the development cycle of Project Cars 2, but the conversation was fruitful. Not long after the release, I received a copy to review.

Nerd-O-Scope: Honeywell Garrett’s G-Series Turbochargers

by Khiem Dinh

The new Honeywell Garrett G-Series turbo line is the most exciting product launch since the infamous Disco Potato. Everyone knows the GT-Series turbos were getting very long in the tooth. The GTX launch was an upgrade with updated compressor aero and new families of v-band, T3 divided, and v-band divided turbine housings. The GTX Gen2 launch was a further improvement in compressor flow along with new compressor housing castings. But overall, the foundation of the turbos had stayed the same for two decades. Enter the G-Series which is a clean sheet design to address and upgrade every aspect of the GT/GTX series turbos. This is a true motorsports grade turbo for the masses.

Project AP1 S2000: DIY Oil Filter Stopper 

by Vincent Soto

Most S2000 owners know about the oil filter problem on AP1 S2000's. At high RPMS, the engine vibration causes the filter to loosen up (our Project AP1.5 S2000 knows this well, as the F22 swap happened due to this happening on track with the original F20 engine). After a nice Sunday drive, before heading home I decided to check the oil. A gut feeling casued me to check if the filter was tight- which is a good thing that I checked because it was loose. After re-tightening the filter, I was back on my way home- only to find it slightly loose again.

TESTED: Ford Mustang GT Power Packs 1-3

by Billy Johnson

Ford Performance offers three different 50-state legal “Power Packs” for the 2015-2017 Mustang GT that increases horsepower without affecting the factory warranty*.  We back-to-back test Power Packs 1, 2, & 3 on a stock Mustang GT to see if Ford’s claim of 13-37hp increases are legitimate.  We then analyze the GT350 intake manifold’s effect on the torque curve to see if it really has less low-RPM torque than stock in favor of high-RPM power.  Finally, we determine which packages would be best for street and track use through in-depth torque and gear ratio analysis.

The Worst Cars Are the Best Cars

There are no bad cars, there are only cars that cost more than they should. My first car was a Plymouth Volare. It did not cost me more than it should; it cost me $600, and it was worth every penny.

by Frank Ewald

Photos by Motovicity and M1 Concourse

The Speed Ring by Motovicity is the richest Time Attack event held in North America. The fastest time of the weekend headed home from The Speed Ring with $20 000.00 cash in their brand new briefcase. Plus the ultimate bragging rights as the fastest Time Attack car in North America - backed up by a big, shiny, and hugely coveted 'Ultimate Badass' trophy. This is the second year that Motovicity has held The Speed Ring and it is, without a doubt, a not to be missed event.

2017's Speed Ring took place in the mid-west at Michigan's new M1 Concourse. It was a two day event with Saturday being a standard time attack event while Sunday was a crowd pleasing, Touge-style bracket race with the best two out of three laps coming out on top as the winner. Motovicity teamed up with GridLife to build the event which is just two years old. This is a quick overview of The Speed Ring with a focus upon the cars that ran in the Touge Bracket Racing. Did you miss The Speed Ring this year? Plan for it next year. And if you are overseas, start looking into booking your shipping container now so that you will be ready. The North American's are ready for you!
