Making the Ford F-150 Ecoboost Drive and Tow Smoother with Eibach Shocks

by Rathyna Gomer

My dad's Ford F-150 Ecoboost is something I frequently drive, usually to pick up car parts and to tow one of the racecars out to the track. Similar to many folks who also own a racecar, the majority of my focus and money has gone into the racecar, not the tow rig. In actuality, I'm spending hundreds of more hours in the truck picking up parts for the car and towing the car to the track, than actually driving on the track.

Save Our Cars and Our Industry - RPM Act of 2017

SEMA Action Network

It is time to make our voices heard and protect our race cars! Though our industry made a lot of noise last year, it was not enough to get our bill passed. Thanks to the SEMA Action Network's efforts Representative Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and his colleagues have reintroduced the RPM Act. Right now the EPA maintains that it is illegal to convert a street car into a racecar and any company providing parts or services for these cars has engaged in an illegal act. This is unacceptable! So spread the word and use the provided link to write to your elected officials stating that we will not tolerate the EPA meddling with our cars or our industry!

LA Auto Show 2016: Nerd’s Eye View – Race Cars and Randoms

by Khiem Dinh

There are always a handful of race cars at the LA Auto Show. The old saying goes, “race on Sunday, sell on Monday." Motorsports are a place for auto manufacturers to test their technology too. If the technology holds up on the race track, the technology should work on the street, right? There were a couple of other race vehicles there, along with some other random things I thought were cool.

Project Lexus SC300 Road Racer: Part 8 - Planning for Performance

by Erik Jacobs

So far in the epic rewiring saga of Project SC300 we’ve managed to write thousands and thousands of words, and we don’t even have any wires pulled or harnesses assembled. It just goes to show how much work and planning goes into doing wiring right. While there is still a lot of fabrication to be done, and little odds and ends to take care of, it’s time to talk about planning a wiring job. Get your reading glasses ready- this article is going to get wordy.

Project 5.0 Mustang (The White One) Building the 302 Coyote Engine!

by Mike Kojima

We were eager to get into our motor and install the Ford Motorsports parts that would basically enable us to rev to over 8000 rpm reliably and breathe better on top. The parts we accumulated would bring us to a spec about the same as the Ford Motorsports Aluminator performance crate engine and a little bit more than the Drag Racing Cobra Jet NA engine.

LA Auto Show 2016: Nerd’s Eye View – Ford

by Khiem Dinh

Ford has been pushing a lot of performance within their product lineup. Much of that pushing has taken the form of placing their Ecoboost technology in everything they make. However, they do have some other goodies too that don't involve turbos. For the type of guys who got pissed that Ford put a twin turbo V6 in the Ford GT, they’re really going to be pissed about what Ford did to the new Raptor.

Building the Naturally Aspirated Honda K Engine Part 3, Assembling the Engine

by Mike Kojima

In the previous two installments of our engine build, you were able to take a look at the parts we will be using to build the bottom end and the cylinder head of our Ariel Atom. Notably, we went with a Dailey Engineering dry-sump system, since the Atom has a lot of aero-enhanced grip, and we want to avoid oil starvation.

Velox Motorsports - FR-S / BRZ Rear Diffuser Development 

by Erik Hazen

The people at Velox Motorsports are our kind of gearheads- engineers who believe aftermarket components should be well-engineered, functional, and shouldn't just look good enough for mass production. With the popularity of the FR-S and BRZ chassis, there has been no shortage of so-called "aerodynamic" products, that are mostly cosmetic and don't have any engineering behind them.

The lack of in-depth engineering within the aero parts industry triggered Velox Motorsports to design their own rear diffuser. They knew that they could improve on what was on the market currently. They wanted to maximize performance, leverage aesthetics, add to their already existing front splitter, and offer additional components not offered to the market previously.

LA Auto Show 2016: Sneak Peek – Porsche 911 RSR

by Khiem Dinh

Porsche has gone and done it now. Personally, I think Porsche should have just transitioned to the Cayman for their GT race car, but I’m no Porsche ‘purist’. And in the interest of not getting their butts kicked, apparently neither are the heads of Porsche Motorsports.
