Project E46 M3: Part 13 - Lightweight clutch and flywheel, and more!

by Pablo Mazlumian

Our E46 M3 is really coming along. In the power department, in order to get significant gains we're pretty much at a point where we either need to get into the motor, or go forced induction. However, a clutch and flywheel is one way we can get more out of the already existing power. In the next two parts we install and dyno test a Clutch Masters FX400 clutch and lightweight flywheel, and show you several other products we used to drop more weight for additional overall performance.

"My Girlfriend's" Miata: Part 7 - LRB Speed Aero Cooling Panels

by Daniel O'Donnell

An update for My Girlfriend’s Miata Project has us dipping our toes into the world of aerodynamic performance. I feel as this is an often overlooked aspect of street car performance and another area we shall address as we try to improve all aspects of our Miata platform. We’ll hold off on improving downforce/reducing drag for a future article and instead start with improving reliability through better control of the air for the cooling system.

Project Viper GTS - Part 9 - Bob's Air Oil Separator

Project VIPER GTS: Part 8 – Bob’s Air-Oil Separator

by Billy Johnson

All cars create blow-by and positive crank case pressure which pumps oil and vapors into the engine’s intake to be burned off for emissions.  This problem is worse on forced induction cars and performance cars driven at the track.  Not only does this oil gunk up the intake tract and valves, it reduces the octane of your fuel which robs power and causes detonation.  We installed a Bob’s Air-Oil Separator to the PCV valve and a catch can for the valve cover vent to see how much oil our Viper’s engine was pumping into the intake after some street and track use.

Nerd's Eye View: Alex Kelsey's MC2 Rally Car

by Khiem Dinh

Rally cars are awesome. They are small, nimble, and pack a lot of horsepower to roast four tires worth of carbon into some smoky state between solid and gas. Most rally cars are built to a pretty common formula for rally cars based on a strict set of rules. There’s also a lot of heritage that goes along with rally racing. But what if you raced where the rules were more open? What would you do?

M2K Motorsports' Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang

by Erik Jacobs

There’s an old adage that nothing good comes out of a sequence of events starting with “Hey y’all, watch this!” In the case of Bill and Billy Wagner, what started with a friend’s sideways remark of “Wow, that’s a big motor. How fast will it go?” turned into a world-record setting 232.8 MPH Shelby GT500 Mustang. Maybe that old adage is wrong.

Dedicated Motorsports' 255MPH GT-R

by Erik Jacobs

There was a time in the import world when a 10-second car was considered blazing fast. The Nissan GT-R was always a little more special, though. 10-second GT-Rs, especially in street trim, were not hard to come by. Mark Johnston’s 2012 GT-R “Premium” definitely fits into that special category, knocking on the door of the 8.0s with a best run of 8.15 at 177 mph in the quarter. But that’s not why we’re here.
