AEM No Weld O2 Sensor Mount

AEM No Weld O2 Sensor Mount

By Mike Kojima

Being able to quickly attach a bung for a wide band 02 sensor is a big pain in the ass.  I know a lot of you have probably tried to help a friend tune their car.  No matter how many times you told them to have an O2 sensor bung welded into their exhaust before they show up at your place, then they arrive and you ask them where it is, they blankly look at you and go "what?"  I know this happens to me all the time.

Ryan Gates Modifed Class EVO X

Tire Test (LeMon's Style): Falken Azenis RT615-K

By Dave Coleman

The typical new tire introduction goes like this: The new Pazoosy Jaberwoky XR 745 Ultra R Super Star uses triple-inverted diagonal ply Inconel belts and a directional, asymmetrical tread pattern to optimize wet and dry grip, minimize road noise, increase your fuel economy and magnify your sex appeal. The sad truth is that neither the author, nor the PR team that fed him that line of technospew has any idea what triple-inverted diagonal ply Inconel belts are or what they do.

Doing More with Less: Ryan Gates Time Attack Mitsubishi EVO X

By Mike Kojima, photos by Jeff Naeyaert

If you're into the Time Attack scene, no doubt you're well aware of Ryan Gates and his winning 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X; Ryan has been tearing up the Time Attack record book with an unheard of winning record.  In the 2009 Redline Time Attack Season Ryan blew up the record book with an amazing 7 wins in 7 events in Modified Class.  Ryan also scored wins at the Buttonwillow Superlap Battle Finale and at the NASA Road America Time Trial in the TTB class.  That’s an amazing 9 wins in 9 events entered!

Revenge of the Nerd, Hope for my Green Ass

By Mike Kojima

During my trip to Germany to the 24 hours of Nurburgring last week I hung out with D Sport Magazine's publisher Mike Ferarra who was also traveling with us.  Mike holds the same ideas about the green revolution as I do, perhaps even more extremely, hence last months "Green Sucks" issue of D Sport. Sharing rants, I realized that I forgot to finish my thoughts about being green here.

The Green Hell, Life at the Nordschleife

By Mike Kojima, Photos by Jeff Naeyeart

It's past 2 am and I am lost somewhere in the middle of the pitch black German countryside. I am stumbling around in the bush.  My tiny LED mechanics light can hardly illuminate the sucking quagmire I am trying to escape. My boots which I am damn glad I packed, squish in mud and water.  It is probably in the high 30's and the cold damp air penetrates several layers of North Face goretex and fleece.  I now understand why multi time F1 champ Jackie Stewart called the Nordscheife The Green Hell.

By Jeff Naeyaert

With our super tight schedules everyday we rarely have time to get back to the media center to download photos and spend any meaningful time writing, so we apologize our day-to-day coverage is more day-to-every-other-day-or-so…  But I'm taking a break from shooting today to stay back and write about the lap we just took of the Nordschleife--IN A FUCKING CHOPPER!!!

Eurotrip, 2010 Geeks on a Plane

By Mike Kojima and Jeff Naeyaert

If updates have been sort of slow lately, it's because Jeff and Mike have been out of the country leaving Martin in charge of the palatial MotoIQ headquarters where he has probably been sleeping on a semi-permanent siesta.  We are currently in Germany for the world famous 24 hours of Nurburgring thanks to the good folks at KW Suspension.

Now that you probably have more than enough information about how basic clutch systems work, we will go on and explain the workings of some of the more exotic clutches and delve into the world of flywheels a bit.
