Nissan Sentra SE-R- Turbo SR20 Final Build Items

Project  Nissan Sentra SE-R- Turbo SR20 Final Build Items

By Aaron LaBeau

Without a doubt the stage of adding all the little components to a major modification is the part where you can really blow your project over budget. It's also one of the most frustrating aspects because every unique piece must work in conjunction and be reliable. We did our homework and researched what we thought the best parts for the value were while noting our strict requirements for this project.  We'll try not to make this article a boring parts list.

Battle Evome Final - Highlights

By Elena Nikolova

Two sleepless weekends in a row for me, and probably a whole sleepless week for the time attack enthusiasts who took part in Battle Evome at Tsukuba circuit this month. Last two rounds were just a week apart so there was little prep-time before the final round on Sunday. The fight against time is definitely not for lazybones. I set off for the circuit at 3:30 AM on Saturday a week ago with part of the Evome Battle staff and it was worth it for sure. Seeing everything from the very start and leaving with the last cars is a one of a kind experience.

Mazdaspeed Motorsports Media Day

By Laura Heng

The 24 Hours of Daytona usually kicks off the racing season but for Mazda the racing season officially begins at the Mazdaspeed Motorsports Media Day where the company lays out its motorsports strategy for the coming year.  It was also a great history lesson in Mazda’s rich motorsports history that continues today.  Mazda is not only involved in a ton of different pro level motorsports such as ALMS and GrandAm but Mazda also heavily supports and subsidizes grassroots racing efforts for the rest of us.  A little known fact is that Mazda shells out several million dollars per season in driver scholarship money and prize money through their various racing programs.  With all of this support that Mazda gives back to racers it's no wonder why Mazda is the most road raced brand in America.

FIGHT ON, SC - Building Formula D Driver Robbie Nishida's Bridges Racing Achilles Tire Lexus, Part 1

By Bob Hernandez

Entering its ninth season, the competitive ranks of the Formula DRIFT pro series are pretty top heavy when it comes to talent, and we're not just talking about the rock stars in the driver's seat. Many accomplished fabricators, engine builders, and all manner of car constructor have gravitated to the sport as it's grown in popularity. A team lines up the right elements – that is, an adaptable ace driver in a well-built, well-prepared car under savvy team management – and they put themselves in a favorable position to nab podiums, victories, even championships.

World Time Attack Team America - ARK Design's BNR32 Skyline GT-R Intro Part 1

by Eric Hsu

The team and I have been hard at work with ARK Design's BNR32 Skyline GT-R. You may remember this car as the old XS Engineering BNR32 GT-R, but that was the distant past. ARK Design now owns this car and it is being rebuilt from the ground up. Follow us as we convert this car from the glorified street car that it was to the world class Time Attack car that it will become. The team only has until June to have this car built, tested, and loaded into a shipping container for Sydney's 2012 World Time Attack Challenge with a limited budget and limited man power. One last thing: this will be the last time you will see an RB26 in it and the last time you'll see this car blue.

Karting: Staying Sharp

By Khiem Dinh

I got a call from Dan Gardner of DG-Spec/Scion Racing to go karting.  Gardner's 25 Hours of Thunderhill teammate Craig Stanton had invited a number of people out to the kart track at Autoclub Speedway for a little bit of fun.  Craig Stanton has raced everything from trucks in the Baja 1000 to a GT Porsche in The Grand-AM Rolex Sports Car Series.  Most recently, Stanton has been named the lead driver and team development manager for MBBS Racing which will field an AMG Black Series in the2012 World Challenge GT Series.  With a career spanning over two decades, I wasn't going to miss this opportunity to gain some knowledge.

Basic Drift Chassis Setup Part 3

By Mike Kojima

Alignment is one of the most important things in getting your drift car to handle correctly and a subject that is mangled quite a bit on internet forums.  It is important to make your alignment adjustable.  In the case of you having a popular car like a Nissan S chassis you can get adjustable front tension rods, rear toe, traction and camber links all off the shelf from companies like SPL Parts and Battle Version.  If you have cars with MacPherson struts in the front, you can often get camber plates.  Ground Control Suspension has camber plates for many different cars.
