DSM Injector

Ask Sarah- DSM Fuel System Tips

By Sarah Forst

Dear Sarah

I read your last article about using a properly sized fuel system and wondered if my fuel system is adequate enough for when I finish my engine build.  I have a 1995 Eclipse GS-T that I’m upgrading to the 16G turbo.  Is there an easy way to determine how big of injectors or fuel pump I need so I don’t run out of fuel at full boost?  Any other helpful hints?

By Jeff Naeyaert

In our efforts to build the ultimate Honda GET 50cc engine for our Honda Ruckus, we have learned a few things with our first iteration of our modded engine, lessons to make our second one better we hope.  In our quest to get even more power out of our little Honda we are going to build another engine, this one is going into another Ruckus in our stable. Our goal for engine number 2 is to surpass the 58 mph of our first engine and reach 60 mph with the Honda engine that came with the Ruckus.

ACT six puck sprung hub clutch disc

Clutch Technology Part 3, Clutch Disc Construction

By Mike Kojima

Read Part 1 about how the clutch pressure plate works here!

Read Part 2 about clutch disc friction material here!

The clutch disc isn't just a simple round and flat disc that rubs against stuff to help transfer the engines torque to the wheels.  It is actually a very sophisticate component that has many design features to help it do its job.  The clutch disc has a very important set of functions.  It must engage smoothly and predictably to help get a car underway, it should help cushion the drivetrain from excess shock and should have low inertial mass to speed shifting.  Of course like all mechanical things there are many compromises that need to be considered with the design of clutch discs.  To learn more, read on.

Moto IQ Staff Report

The 2009 Formula D Pro Drift Season is wrapped up and in the can. While we are waiting for the end of the 2010 Silly Season and busying ourselves for Formula D’s 2010 opener in Long Beach, we spotted this video overview of the 2009 season by Josh Herron. We at MotoIQ have been longtime fans of Josh’s work. His capability with a camera and post production magic not only captures the motion and rapid fire action of Pro Drifting but also strikes a genuine emotional chord that great video can do.

MotoIQ Project Ducati Hypermotard

Project Ducati Hypermotard Part 1

By Jeff Naeyaert

 We would like to introduce our first motorcycle project, Project Ducati Hypermotard. The Hypermotard is the opposite of a Supermoto bike.  Where the Supermoto bike is a Motocross bike modified for the pavement, the Ducati Hypermotard is more like an ultra high performance street-touring bike modified for dirt use with some full on road racing technology thrown in.  Its like the parts from a Honda CRF 450, a Ducati Monster naked street performance bike, a Ducati Multistrada sports touring bike and a Ducati 1098 sports bike were thrown in a pot to create a very unique bike that doesn’t really fit into any category other than its own.

 Nissan Pathfinder  Project Pathfinder Part 9, Headwork

by Mari Umekubo

As we have reached the limit in bolt on potential for Project Pathfinder we now delve into building the ultimate tow motor.  The ultimate tow motor is probably the ultimate off road motor and perhaps the ultimate motor for a heavy clumsy SUV.  Our motor will be built to emphasis low-end torque, better for pulling, good fuel economy and the ability to run on lower grades of gas.  Since we're dirt cheap and as this is just our tow/daily transportation vehicle, we placed additional emphasis on staying away from exotic and expensive parts, instead rummaging in our spare bins of factory Nissan parts.
