Analyzing Turn by Turn- the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb Course Technical Analysis

by Frank Ewald

The cover photo is of Wouter Bouman's 916 whp 3-rotor Mazda that put down 916 whp the week prior to the event while. During this anniversary edition of Knox Mountain Hill Climb, Wouter captured the overall victory and set a class record in the process. This is the 60th running of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb hosted by Leavitt Machinery. To this writer's knowledge, this is the oldest continuously running hill climb event in North America. The parkland at the start line quickly changes to the mountainous terrain that you can see in the background. That should give you a hint for what is in store.

Project DC2 Integra - Addressing Gaskets and Maintenance

by Clint Boisdeau

With most DC2 Acura Integras being anywhere from 15 to 20 years old by now, it takes some smart maintenance to keep everything running well and the engine bay clean. Good thing is, most B-series OEM parts are still readily available through several sources. Strategic preventative upkeep can keep Honda B-series engines running for an extremely long time.

Project EP3 Civic Si, Suspension Upgrades with Whiteline! 

by Mike Kojima

So everyone into Hondas just about universally ignores or even hates the dumpy EP3 Civic. The EP3 represents, to most Honda fans the generation of Civic where Honda lost their brand identity and started to make cookie cutter shitboxes.

Nissan NX GTi-R V. 3 Continued

by Frank Ewald

You have either been waiting for a year for this update or you are not even sure of what the NX GTi-R is. Of course, a minority may be saying not again but you will have to endure my writing about my favourite car. For those of you who have been waiting, it has been a challenging couple of years but, with the help of AES Auto, things are moving in the right direction. For those of you who are not familiar with this project, this one owner Nissan NX1600 comes with a pedigree earned in the school of hard knocks. The SR20DET swap took place about five years ago and it has been an ongoing learning process - and I must admit I have made some mistakes along the way. When a cracked oil pump took out the engine in 2015, it was time to sit down and really think through the process.

2017 Formula Drift Pro2 - Road Atlanta

by Erik Jacobs

Formula Drift's Pro2 series is a relatively recent creation, in comparison to the big show's 14-year history. But do not mistake its youth for innocence. The level of attention to detail in the preparation of the cars and the skill of the drivers are nothing to shake a stick at. Making it to the Pro2 show represents a significant achievement, and the competition is fierce. Here's how the Road Atlanta round of the 2017 Formula Drift Pro2 series shook out.

Lessons in Turbo Technology with Garrett - Burst Containment

by Mike Kojima

What is burst containment for a turbocharger, and why is it important?  A turbocharger is a system that has a lot of potential to cause a lot of bad stuff to happen to drivers, spectators, and surrounding equipment.  Why, might you ask? Well, a typical turbocharger can spin at up to an unfathomable 200,000 rpm for a small frame turbo and a still amazing 90,000 rpm for a large frame turbo!  That is a ton of potentially ass-kicking force. We will show you how much later and it's enough to make you cringe.

Project STurdteen: Installing Progress Sway Bars

by Rathyna Gomer

To run sway bars or to not run sway bars? That is the question. In the drift world, there's been a reoccurring debate if there is any true benefit to running sway bars. Sometimes it comes down to the driver's preference and sort of drift "style" they're aiming to achieve. As the debate continues, we opted to run sway bars. Sensei Kojima tells me there's no other way!
