Don't Trust Strangers!  How Dynos Lie and When to Believe One

By Khiem Dinh

Ah yes, the dyno plot and power numbers.  The dyno plot is the subject of many forum pissing matches, the holder of false prophecies, the teller of partial truths…  Reading the forums, you would be led to believe that everyone had their car dyno'd on a "low reading" dyno.  Well, except for in South Florida; there must be some magic octane booster in the air down there.  Dynos are a great tool for tracking performance changes, but trying to compare across different dynos on different days with different cars is borderline meaningless.  We’re here to tell you why.  We'll also tell you the best case for getting results you can compare.

Motion Sport Compact Auto Show and Expo 2011

by Laura Heng

You’ve got to give credit where credit is due.  Car show builds are privateer efforts for the most part and people doing it just for the love of the hobby.  This group of car fanatics meticulously build these magnificent showcases of technogadgetry on wheels and put them on display for the rest of us to admire.  The craftsmanship and obsessive attention to detail on many of the cars at the Motion Autoshow ooze pride of ownership and a passion for the tuning industry that any gearhead can appreciate no matter what discipline you come from.

Formula SAE: What a Few Car College Gear Heads Can Do In Their Free Time

by David Zipf

A good percentage of MotoIQ's staff  and readership is comprised of Mechanical Engineers.  That title isn't given to just anyone, you have to work through a (minimum) of four years of hard college work full of long lectures, late nights, and a hermit-like social life.  So what does a car geek do when he's tired of working the books and nerdulator?  He (or she) finds the campus Formula SAE team and wrenches of course!

10 Fastest Cars of the World Time Attack Challenge Pro Class

by Eric Hsu

Now that the dust has settled from WTAC 2011 itself and the thrashing to prepare in the weeks prior to the event, I'm going to attempt to do an overview of the 10 fastest cars @ WTAC 2011. It seems there was plenty of coverage of the event and the cars on sites, blogs, picture hosting sites, etc. but nowhere could I find a summary of the 10 fastest cars in one place. Looking to build or bring a car to the WTAC 2012 Pro class? Look no further because this is your guide to your competition.

Project EJ Honda Civic: Skunk2 Pro-C Coilovers

by Annie Sam

My Koni Yellows coupled with the Ground Control coilover kit served me well for street use, and I think I got more than my money's worth out of these shocks over the last eight years. Now that I am no longer a starving college student, my grown up self decided that I should upgrade to a grown up set of coilovers. After a little bit of research, we decided to go for a set of Skunk2 Pro-C coilovers for Project EJ Civic.
