Motovicity's Ticket To Ride Scion FR-S Update- Eibach Pro Street-S Coilovers

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off, we had just gotten a load of AEM stuff for the Motovicity Ticket To Ride Scion FR-S.  For this week we will be looking into the suspension, mainly some sweet street coilovers from Eibach.

Eibach's new Pro Street-S coilovers are meant for durable daily driving use on the street.  They are a monotube, gas charged damper with an all weather, durable stainless steel body.  It is great to see this sort of quality on a basic street coilover.

The Hail Mary: The Build Story Behind Speed Week Part 1

By Chuck Johnson
 
Defined as a very long, low percentage pass made in sheer desperation, the term Hail Mary is perfectly fitting of Project 240LSR’s journey to Speed Week. While Eric Hsu and "Team America" were making their own Hail Mary attempt to make it to World Time Attack, the perhaps lesser known, yet equally determined team behind MotoIQ’s Project 240LSR were simultaneously in pursuit of their own Hail Mary pass. Let’s face it though; this is par for the course. If it wasn’t for race day, almost every race car would be forever damned to a hellish state of incompletion. This is the story of how we made it.

Turbo Tech:  Intercooler Testing

by Khiem Dinh

An intercooler is essential for maximum performance on a highly boosted turbocharged vehicle (no duh right?).  However, just putting an intercooler into the system does not guarantee it will cool down the charge air (air compressed by the turbocharger) efficiently.  A number of variables contribute to the efficiency of an intercooler: size, design, end tank design, and volume of cooling air moving through the intercooler to name the big variables.  You can try to calculate efficiency, or you can just measure it.  Ain't nothing better than the real thing, so I opted to measure it using a portable thermocouple data logger.

Project E36- How to Install a Seibon Carbon Hood

By Nick Betz

Project E36 is a pretty well used car.  It has been a non pampered, non garaged daily driver for its entire life.  With this sort of use and from continual baking under the hot California sun, the hood on our car was in sad shape.  After seeing just how much a bodyshop was going to charge to sand all the paint off the hood, get rid of the rust and to fix a few dents, we decided that perhaps getting a carbon hood from Seibon would be a similarly priced, and better alternative.  Want to know the correct way to do a durable installatation of a carbon fiber hood on a daily driver?  Read on!

Achilles Tire Test Cover G20

TESTED: Achilles GS-328 Race Tire

By Steve Rockwood

I've driven on a lot of tires, some of them horrible, some of them great. All of them have been DOT legal. Until now. When we were approached by Achilles Tire to try out their new GS-328 racing slick on Project G20 Racecar, we predictably jumped at the opportunity.

Nerd's Eye View- Ryan Tuerck's 2JZ Powered FR-S!

By Mike Kojima

Ryan Tuerck has always been one of our favorite drivers in Formula D.  A consistent and solid performer, Ryan is always right there in the season end points race mainly due to his consistency.

Ryan has been known for his work in Nissan S chassis and had driven for Gardella Racing for many years in various Chevy platforms.  For 2013 Ryan has a new ride in an exciting car, a Scion FR-S.  Now the FR-S is a pretty exciting car but the flat 4 Subaru based engine is just not up to the task of propelling a competitive Formula D car.

The Eibach Meet: A Non-Honda-Lover's Guide

By: Aaron Bonk 

You hate the Eibach meet and all eight degrees of negative camber that it stands for. But don't be bitter because behind every pack of graffiti-covered engine bays, every row of Otter Pop-colored Civics, and every stock JDM airbox short-sightedly matched alongside four-into-one race headers lies all sorts of Hondas and Acuras that care about a funny thing: going fast.

Project 240SX Land Speed Racer:  Racecar Livery, the Function Behind the Form

By Chuck Johnson  Photos by Joe Lu

I’ve put together a lot of cool project cars over the years and would like to think that with each one, I push the envelope a little bit further and get a little better at what I’m doing.  I’ve learned a lot from building racecars and a good portion of that learning in most recent years I’d say, is far beyond that of just turning a wrench.

Science of Speed S2000 Turbo Kit AP1 Ap2 Chris Wilson NASA TT

Nerd's Eye View: Science of Speed S2000

By: Sarah Forst 

Images by Sarah Forst and Wes Dumalski

Back in March while covering the Modified Streetcar Shootout, this S2000 was tearing up the track. The car was clean but sounded dirty and upon inspection under the hood, the engine looked like it was put together by techs in white lab coats. What struck us about this car was the very exotic appearance! Surely this one off piece of art must cost a bajillion dollars and be impossible to re-create! As we looked closer we were absolutely shocked by what we found within this build.
