Every once in a while, there’s a vehicle that really catches my eye at SEMA. A vehicle that is something different than everything else at the show that year.

Motorcycle Track Day: Prep and Action

by Khiem Dinh

The last time I took the good ol' CBR to the track was somewhere around eight years ago. A group of friends were going to Autoclub Speedway and they had space available in the trailer, so I decided I needed to shake off the rust and get back on track. However, before hitting up the track, a couple upgrades were required.

Tested: Shoei X-Fourteen Helmet

by Khiem Dinh

A buddy of mine had a brand new Shoei X-Fourteen helmet that he was testing out. He wanted to get a second opinion on it so he asked me if I wanted to try it too. As I’m a cheap bastard and it would take hell freezing over for me to spend my own money on this top-of-the-line helmet, I definitely jumped at the opportunity to try it out!

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?

Project Autocross BRZ - Dialing in the KW Clubsports

by Bart Hockerman

It's always funny how things work out when you look back. Dialing in ride heights, alignments and suspension settings is really no different. It seems to be a long road where it involves a lot of time tuning everything in to maximize what you can get out of your suspension. Adding more knobs to turn does not make it any easier but it does allow you to fine tune the way your suspension works. Then, when you finally hit that point when it all comes together, it’s amazing. You become one with the car, as it feels like it is an extension of you performing feats that some people can’t comprehend. When you look back at what it took to get there you have to laugh at how you sometimes really need to take the long way there. Chalk it up to character building or the gaining of wisdom.

Project MKVII Golf R: Part 1 - Introduction

by Isaac Sandoval

I finally decided to give in and buy a German made car. Perhaps it’s the clever marketing that captured me this time, but I want to believe it was the clever engineering that drew me to the 2016 MKVII Volkswagen Golf R. While some of the rivals in the segment (WRX STI, and discontinued Evolution) have used the same stale drivetrain for several generations, Volkswagen has taken a different route and the result is a modern drivetrain package consisting of a direct injected turbo four-cylinder as well as a refined double clutch transmission and torque vectoring AWD system. This most recent addition to the MotoIQ project car fleet is a real wolf in sheep's clothing, and in this article we will take a look at some of the cool features of this project car.

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.
