Speedhunters could very well be "the worlds largest website for the compact car performance and lifestyle enthusiast" but the quality of the content often time is mediocre at best.
Staff members of MotoIQ: you shouldn't be wasting your precious time with a bunch of photographers, you know better than that.

I think the 2 sites compliment each other very well. MotoIQ being in-depth tech, and Speedhunters filled with lifestyle coverage and sweet sweet pictures. Minimal overlap and neither is under the delusion that they're everything to everyone.

Hey anytime MotoIQ can get coverage is good. It brings people here where they can learn something important.

The part I liked most about the interview was hearing about Dai. It must be very refreshing when the entire team is on the same page and you guys have to force him away. Much better than the opposite way around huh?

Speedhunters used to be awesome, until they became the destination for HellaFlush VW douchenozzles.

@Dusty Duster:
I don't know if I would say "awesome" but some individuals (staff members) from Speedhunters brought something unique on the table (for the most part); then a bunch of hipsters-JDM-wannabe-fixed-gear-hellaflush-folks came on board and gave the site a totally different image.

The site emphasizes more on picture-quality rather than the content.
I browse on the net daily (car blogs and other sites) and look for stuff that I am not familiar with, trying to learn something, something constructive.
You know? Juicy content. Stuff that you read on magazines such as Racecar Engineering, Race Tech International, or Grassroots Motorsports just to name a few; or here on MotoIQ, and when I think about Speedhunters, I can't associate that word (juicy) with that site.

Like I stated earlier, most of those photographers never wrenched on their own cars (changing the engine oil and inflate the tires do not count), let that alone distinguish between a wet-sump system and a dry-sump system.
It's pathetic because these folks get paid to publish this stuff, and a lot of hipsters-JDM-wannabe readers fall for it.
