Project Mustang 5.0 Part 3: Optimizing Weight Transfer and Roll Steer

By Vince Illi

In the last installment, we tightened down Project Mustang 5.0's chassis with Whiteline sway bars and strut bracing, dramatically increasing its tarmac-holding capability and making the chassis much less prone to being "upset" in quick transitions such as slaloms.

The Ultimate Guide to Suspension and Handling Part IX: It’s All in the Geometry - The Roll Center

By Mike Kojima

In the first parts of our suspension series we have covered basic suspension stuff. Now it’s time to bury ourselves in tuning suspension geometry. Geometry tuning is a step above the usual bolt on street parts. Making changes on this fundamental level is what racecar and suspension engineers do for a living, but we’ve found that with the more popular cars in this market there are parts available to help with these mods.  Some of you are also advanced enough to experiment with this as well.

A Dummy's Guide to Formula 1 in Austin

By Khiem Dinh

Austin is the home of my old college stomping grounds, the University of Texas at Austin (duh).  There will be a Formula 1 race in Austin?  Why yes, I think I will go (like I needed any more excuses to visit Austin).  Here are my tips, tricks, and notes on the first F1 race in Austin.

Garrett Turbo Bug

Sneak Peek: Craig Gibbs 1970 Volkswagen Beetle

by Justin Banner

The Volkswagen Beetle, a timeless car that is popular to this day despite its early and rather, evil, beginnings. The Volkswagen was supposed to be the "People's Car" and hippies loved them. Then the car nerds got a hold of one and found out they made a great jack of all trades car. From Baja to Sand Drags, from drag racing to road racing. "Bugs," as they are affectionately known, are the most versatile cars on the planet. This story will be one of versatility, as you'll soon discover this Bug has lived many lifetimes even while under the care of its second owner, Craig Gibbs, Technical Manager from Garrett Turbo. Yep, it's got a turbo, too.

Aeromotive - New Phantom Stealth Fuel Systems

Industry Press Release

The hottest trend in hot rods and muscle cars today is late model EFI engine swaps and aftermarket EFI systems. It’s no secret why either; you can make ridiculous power and do it more affordably than ever. What makes these conversions so affordable is the ample supply of parts and kits from the aftermarket. But until now, the fuel system has been a costly and time-consuming upgrade.

OFF-TRACK: Ruger 1022 Buildup - Making a Match Grade .22!

By Mike Kojima

Judging by the people we hang around with in the car industry, it seems like about 90% of car nuts in our circle are also into guns so we decided to do a little write up on one of our gun projects.  This is a purely for fun tech story and we would never politicize our interest.  We are not doomsday preppers, nor are we fantasizing about smoking zombies, but we do like target shooting and higher performance in the stuff we do.  We figured that our readers would like to see what we did to turn a Ruger 1022 into a tack driving paper puncher.

Project Evo X GSR- Keeping Cool with Greddy and Koyo

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off with our Project Evo X, we had achieved some good results with simple bolt ons from Greddy and AMS in the form of an exhaust system and a downpipe.  With some further open source ECU tuning we were then able to extract another pretty good gain from our car.

Project Scion FR-S Part 2- Uncorking the exhaust with Greddy

By Mike Kojima

The more time we spend behind the wheel of Project Scion FR-S, the more dear it is becoming to our hearts.  This car is really fun to drive.  What really puts a damper on things is that it simply just doesn't have enough power.  If power is the FR-S's weak point then that's what we are going to address first. To help us get more power, we turned to our friends at Greddy who supplied us with their new Evo 3 exhaust for our evaluation.
