Global Time Attack Texas Motor Speedway GST Impreza L Jeff Westphal Mike Warfield

Global Time Attack Round 5 - Texas Edition

By Wes Dumalski

"Everything is bigger in Texas!" At least that's what they say... When I stepped off the plane my first destination was the bathroom. I unzipped with nervousness and as I relieved myself I realized that so far, the above cliche was completely untrue. After leaving the facilities with my head hung in shame I realized that something WAS bigger in Texas... The ASS whooping that Global Time Attack was going to deliver to the infield course at Texas Motor Speedway!

Project Nissan 370Z - Keeping it cool with a CSF radiator, HPS Hoses and a Nissan Motorsports Oil Cooler

By Mike Kojima

The Nissan 370Z is a notoriously under cooled car.  It has a pretty bad reputation for easily going into overheat limp mode very quickly under track conditions and sometimes even on the street during normal driving in extremely hot conditions.  Nissan knows about the problem - 370Z press cars are fitted with oil coolers and diff coolers.  Probably Nissan does not want to add to the price of the car and instead relies on cheaper electronic nannies like limp mode to control the engine's and driveline's temps.

Project Tundra

Project Toyota Tundra Part 10- Suspension by King Shocks

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off, we had installed bigger brakes as well as wheels and tires on Project Tundra.  The big wheels left us with rubbing problems which we addressed by moving the fender liners and modifying the front crossmember.  We wanted to get even more wheel well clearance so we decided to raise our truck slightly.  The stock Tundra has a nose down attitude which looks a little funny so we wanted to raise the front of the truck by about an inch.  We did not want to build a Metal Mulisha bro mobile, just raise our truck a little and improve handling if we could.

To do this we decided to get a set of King Offroad coilover OEM replacement shocks.  The King shocks were designed to maximize performance on a stock truck at close to the stock ride height.  The King Shocks were designed to run at the stock rear ride height while raising the front about 3".

Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 6: Horsepower and Handlebars

Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 6: Horsepower and Handlebars

By Dan Barnes

This might be a record among MotoIQ projects for number of articles before engine work to improve performance. Reliability and durability were higher priorities, but the TE610's stock silencer is big, a bit heavy and leaves some performance on the table without being really quiet. Plus, we wanted to clean up some rideability issues.

Refresh Your Brakes With Stoptech's Sport Kit

By Mike Kojima

Usually at MotoIQ we evaluate brake systems that make a big difference on our project cars,  bigger rotors, calipers and pads are the norm.  These are brake systems that are great for big power cars, with big sticky tires or cars that often see track use.

These brake mods are not for everyone.  If you have a car that sees sporting driving but not necessarily track use, have mild mods or perhaps you don't do braking intensive driving events like drifting or autocross and don't want to have the expense of a big brake system but could still stand to upgrade your brakes, a simple solution exists.

Driver Blog: Tyler McQuarrie

By Tyler McQuarrie

Round 6 of the Formula D Championship would be in Sin City, Las Vegas! I had some unfinished business from a year ago when Formula D made its stop here and I was really hoping to repeat my win at this round in 2010. I wasn’t surprised to see a new track layout, simply because Formula D has changed almost every track we have gone to this year.
