Rally America Round 8: Lake Superior Performance Rally

by Connor Harrison

Heralding the end of another Rally America season, the north woods of Upper Michigan came alive with the sounds of Subarus, anti-lag systems, spraying gravel, and cheering fans that turned out for the Lake Superior Performance Rally. Known as the oldest, meanest, and toughest rally on the circuit due to its rough and rocky terrain, LSPR would be the final hurdle for the Subaru Rally Team’s attempt at a perfect season. Its worth mentioning here that nobody has achieved a perfect season since John Buffum did it in one of those beautifully boxy Audi Quattros… 28 years ago!

In our last edition of Project VA WRX we showcased some of the preliminary testing involved for the design validation of our new big brake kit by Stoptech.  A baseline for the stock brake system was established using Stoptech's test protocols.

Sneek Peek: K-PAX Flying Lizard McLaren 650S GT3

by Mike Kojima

Earlier this year we were able to get a close look at the K-PAX Flying Lizard McLaren 650S GT3 that races in the Pirelli World Challange series in GT class. 

If you are not familler with the GT class, the allowed body styles within this class are coupe, sedan and convertible. The cars permitted in GT are typically sold in the market as “sports” cars, “sport touring” cars, or performance versions of “luxury” cars.  The GT class allows FIA GT3 homologated cars like this McLaren. Forced induction is permitted on cars that come equipped with forced induction stock, or on cars that SCCA Pro Racing has determined need help reaching the target horsepower range. Power output for the GT class ranges from 425 – 525 hp. The allowed weight varies depending on power output and tire size. All of the vehicles in GT are either rear or all-wheel drive.

Verena Mei: One of America's Only Female Rally Race Car Drivers

Rally race car driving is a multi-million dollar industry and it is considered by many to be one of the most treacherous sports of its kind. Unlike Formula One racing, rallying doesn't take place on a track, and crashing and car flipping are common occurrences. Verena Mei is one of the only female rally race car drivers in America. A trained stunt driver, with former careers in modeling and acting, she has managed to penetrate the male dominated sport, gain respect, and become a serious threat to the competition.

Sneak Peek: Team R-Colt Time Attack Mitsubishi Ralliart Colt

by Khiem Dinh

A Ralliart Colt? Most of us here in the US of A are probably unfamiliar with this car but this vehicle did exist in North America way back when. An uncle of mine had a Dodge Colt, you know, back in the day when it seems half of the Dodge products were rebadged Mitsubishis. Anyway, in the regions of the world retaining right hand drive, the Mitsubishi Colt lived on. On top of that, there was a Ralliart version!

Project VehiCross Part 4: The Single Worst Repair...In The World!

by David Zipf

Last time you read about our VehiCross project, we ended with a tease about how bad replacing a power steering hose is.  Originially, this was going to be the closer of our previous post, but as the power steering hose balooned, it took on a life of its own.  A few years ago, I replaced the same hose on my 240SX.  It took a little more than an hour and was fairly easy to do with the most basic of hand tools.  In the VehiCross, it took 11 hours spread over three days.

Project VehiCross Part 3: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

by David Zipf

If you've ever owned a project car, you know that things never go according to plan.  Our VehiCross is not supposed to be a normal project car, falling more into the mildly restored daily driver category.  But when you need to replace parts and can gain some performance, you might as well, right?  Unfortunately with any project, things don't always go as planned and as you replace one thing, you find another and another and...

Project Focus ST- Making Power with Cobb Tuning!

by Mike Kojima

It's been a while since we have done much with our Project Focus ST but that is about to change.  In the past installments we worked on upgrading our car's suspension.  With the suspension done it's time to focus on other stuff.  What a bad pun.  The other stuff is going to be handled with the arrival of a big pallet of goodies from Cobb Tuning.

Our stuff from Cobb is mostly going to focus on getting more easy and plentiful bolt on power from the engine with their Stage 3 Power Package with a few other goodies to enhance the car's handling as well.  Man we cannot get away from these focus puns.

Rywire/CSF Radiator SEMA Build: Taking An Integra From A Row Boat To Paddle Shifters

by Ryan Basseri

Paddle shift conversions can be done a million different ways using various components, theories, hidden secrets and technology that is well above my pay grade. What you’ll see here is not by any means the only way to do it, nor is it even the "correct" way to do it. I thought long and hard, weighing the costs vs. benefits, the pros and cons, and this is what I came up with.

Project #YAE92 M3: Part 6 – Roll, Stop, and Stick

by Mike Bonanni

Like aerodynamics, the suspension on a car is highly specific to the cars setup and modifications. Our E92 M3 is so different than a stock E92 M3 that many off-the-shelf aftermarket parts just won’t work for our application.
