Project Honda Civic EJ

Project Honda Civic EJ: Staying Cool with Koyo and HPS

By Annie Sam

Now that the motor was back in the car ready to be buttoned up, we decided to give it a little bit of a cooling upgrade to avoid another Buttonwillow incident. Although the stock radiator was reliable for over a decade for daily driving, our beefed up Civic would also need a beefed up cooling system. The radiator we opted for was the Koyo All Aluminum Racing Radiator tied together with some hoses from HPS Performance Silicone Hoses.

Project S2000: Phase 2, More Grip

By Khiem Dinh

"Where has Project S2000 been" do you say?  I've been having fun and driving the piss out of it.  I had completed Phase 1 of the build which was to make a fast, reliable, and uncompromised daily driven street car that could be driven at the track without fear of breaking anything.  Well, the car is no longer my daily driver, so I have decided to commence with Phase 2.  A Porsche GT3RS is my philosophical car build benchmark; while it CAN be driven on the street, it's not exactly a car that you would want to daily drive as it introduces compromises to DD duties in order to improve track performance.  Phase 2, Step 1 = more grip and protecting the engine against increased lateral Gs.

Red Bull Hangar 7

Road Trip: Red Bull Hangar 7

By Sarah Forst

20 miles west of Salzburg, Austria is the Red Bull Museum.  Red Bull co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz has amassed a huge collection of F1 race cars and Flying Bulls aircraft.  They are on display in a hangar that looks more like artwork, nestled at the bed of the Austrian Alps.  This isn't just a car collection.  It also houses an art gallery, lounges and bars, and even a Michelin starred restaurant.  And the best part of it?  It's open to the public- and free!

Project Scion FR-S Part One - An Introduction

By Mike Kojima

27 years ago I bought the first new car in my whole life, a red Toyota AE86 GTS Corolla hatch.  It was in 1985, I was in my last semester of College and I was working as an intern at TRD.  A whole new world was ahead of me.  It was an exciting time in my life and the AE86 was the car for that time.  It was inexpensive, economical, good looking and its twin cam 16 valve 4AG engine was quite advanced for the time.  What ended up making the AE86 an Iconic car was that it (and the Nissan S chassis) was one of the last RWD compacts made.  I had a lot of fun with that car and wish I had never sold it.

Ask Sarah - Dimples on Cars

By Sarah Forst

Project Land Speed Racer 240SX: All The Right Gauges

by Stephen Quinn - Photos by Joe Lu and Chuck Johnson

Let's face it. There are hundreds, if not thousands of aftermarket gauges readily available for purchase. Most can tell you what you need to know in whatever color, shape, and size you desire. But an array of gauges strewn across the dash and up the A-pillar accompanied by a tachometer the size of your head isn't the most effective way of delivering essential information to the driver. An unorganized gauge setup is distracting and can be even more dangerous than not having the gauges to begin with.

(Another) Dai Does It! Formula Drift Round 7 - Irwindale

By Justin Banner

Who could come out of the smoke and raise the trophy for the 2012 Formula Drift Championship?

Magic Black Box: Stillway's Time-Attack Evo

By Tatsunori Tsuchida

Situated in the sticks of Himeiji is Stillway Japan. That's like finding a go-fast shop in Bozeman, Montana. Okay never-mind that analogy, it's more like finding one near Hearst Castle in California, which is a distant suburb of San Louis Obispo, which is a distant suburb of Los Angeles. So there is some semblance of civilization in these parts. But you get the point, this is a long way out to find such a top-level Time-Attack EVO.
