TESTED: KW Dynamic Damping Control - DDC

By Martin Gonzales

There comes a time in every gear heads life when he/she must ask themselves, "Why in St. Kojima's name am I driving my track set-up to work?".  If you can relate, then no doubt you've been victim to the track-bug's high octane venom.  Which also means the vehicle you use for daily transportation has been molested and tinkered with to the point that it no longer has what little refinement it had when it drove off the showroom floor.  All done in the name of faster lap times of course, but your vehicle is now serving as a constant reminder that there really is no such thing as an all purpose vehicle.  Well, enter KW's Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) system.

World Endurance Championship: Circuit of the Americas 2013

by Mark Zimmerman

The WEC event at the Circuit of the Americas was all about firsts this year, and probably the most dramatic was the 3 inches of rain that fell between Thursday and Friday. This made for some rooster tails through practice, and soaking fans roaming the paddock and vendor areas. If you were lucky, you had quick access to shelter in the grandstands on the front straight, under the walking bridge, or in the SRT lounge with the “Rush” trailer blaring on several TV monitors. After an hour of downpours, I can recite the Rush trailer by heart. I am still looking forward to it.

MotoIQ Radio: Kyle Mohan on WDS China, Jeff Jordan of Jordan Innovations, and Ryan Wagner of Raceseng

By Justin Banner and Kerryann De La Cruz

Drifting in Smog City, nerding out, and billet, that kind of sums up this episode of MotoIQ Radio! First, we'll talk to Kyle Mohan of Mazdatrix Racing about his latest trip to China for the World Drift Series. WDS is always an adventure for him, so we'll see how this trip went. Next, we talk everything wiring with Jordan Innovations' name sake, Jeff Jordan. We'll talk wire tucks, wire gauges, and everything you're doing wrong with your wiring harness unless you get if from Jeff. Finally, we'll talk to Ryan Wagner of Raceseng. These guys craft some of the best looking CNC products to come out in some time. They started out in karts and now are working on parts for the ZN6 FR-S/BRZ chassis.

Yost Autosport #YAE92 M3: Part 1 – We Officially Void the Warranty

by Mike Bonanni

The BMW M3 has long been touted as one of the best production sports cars ever and I would have to agree. From the current generation’s 4.0L S65 V8 to the fine Bavarian leather upholstery, everything about the BMW M3 exudes perfection. This is why it made perfect sense to tear one completely apart. Enter Project #YAE92, and yes I do pronounce the hash tag. To make a long drawn-out story short, this project is the brainchild of two race car drivers; myself and a good friend of mine Jordan Yost. Both of us have had our ups and downs over the years trying to make it to the professional ranks of North American sports car racing, neither of us ever quite getting the opportunity we were after to go racing in the big name series like Grand-Am or ALMS.  After another failed start-up race team Jordan and I worked on together for someone else, we decided it was time to throw a Hail Mary and start our own race team for once.

Tested: Qstarz LT-Q6000 GPS Lap Timer

by Clint Boisdeau

Proper technique, experience, and seat time are usually what gets you faster around a road course.  But once a certain level is reached, finding time and consistency takes more then just instinct and a lap time.  Lap telemetry and data acquisition used to be the dreams that race teams were made of.  Such data loggers were either out of most grassroots drivers' budgets, and/or more complicated to use than sending a man into space.  Within the last few years though, the combination of high market demand and  cost reduction in technology have made way for many different lap telemetry products that are not only affordable, but also easy to operate with high levels of available tech support.  Qstarz is one of these companies, and the LT-Q6000 is their flagship lap telemetry/data unit.

Project S2000: Part 19 - Ram Air!!! Plus Hot Air Testing!

By Khiem Dinh

Did I mention there would be more hood hacking? Why yes I did. Somewhere along the other 18 parts of this project, I noticed the stock air box looked relatively well sealed along with having a location ideal for ram air. Ram air is used on practically every sport bike you can buy to coax as much power as possible from the engine. Even cars such as the Corvette Z06 and Dodge Viper use ram air.

Learning the Craft: Grassroots Drifting

by Andy Noggle

Just outside Madison, Wisconsin lies Columbus 151 Speedway.  It's a family owned semi-banked quarter mile oval, a classic Midwest circle track, and home to Friday night stock car races throughout the summer. But every few weeks on a Saturday morning, as the staff are picking up the empty beer cans and hot dog wrappers from the last night's races, the track comes alive again.

However, we won’t gloss over anything here at MotoIQ as we give you coverage of the eliminations at Round 6 from Top 32 on down.
