An inside look at the Feal 441 Suspension for the B13 Sentra SE-R!

by Mike Kojima

The original B13 Sentra SE-R has always held a dear spot in many of our hearts. Produced from 1991 to 1994, the SE-R combined the lightweight shell of the Sentra coupe with the sparkling performance of the beloved SR20DE engine. For its time, the SE-R offered a great performance bang for the buck, and to this day, it has scores of hardcore devotees who treasure them.

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

by Matt Brown

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.

$20,000 at Stake: The Speed Ring by Motovicity!

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!

Although the name Pedders is probably new to most of you MotoIQ readers, they have been around for a long time, 67 years, in fact, being founded in 1950.

Wrench Tip: In Defense of Cheap Tools

by Matt Brown

I have a $400 multimeter in my toolbox. I’m not sure why, but at some point in the recent past, I decided I needed to measure voltage with an accuracy of less than one-tenth of one percent and current down to ten microamps. Sitting on top of it, is that red multimeter that Harbor Freight occasionally gives away free with any purchase. Guess which one gets used most often?

We Look Inside Fredric Aasbo's Papadakis Racing Toyota Corolla iM Drift Machine

by Mike Kojima

It is really hard to build a competitive car in Formula Drift nowadays. The rules set is mature, and the competition is ruthlessly tough. When even the best teams develop a new platform, it can take a whole season to sort a new chassis out. A radically different chassis can take a couple of seasons for even a top team to get competitive. Not so for Papadakis Racing and their Rockstar Toyota Corolla iM that they built for 2015 Formula Drift Champion, Fredric Aasbo.

WATCH: Project V8 RX-7 gets ARP wheel studs, wheel spacers and a new set of nuts!

We were so excited about our new Sikky shifter video that we almost forgot to show you exactly how we approached new lug studs and spacers for the rear. We did a pretty good job guessing what offset would give us that perfect flush fitment of our SSR SP4 wheels on our Rocket Bunny widebody RX-7, but there was still room for improvement! We took care of all that with a set of 10mm FIC spacers, new ARP wheel studs and Muteki lug nuts!

After being imported into sunny California's traffic-filled lands, simplicity was re-envisioned for the sake of drivability and enjoyment. This R33 GT-R is reminiscent of its history while being driven and appreciated in the States.
