Inside Matt Field's Drift Assassin Nissan S14 

by Mike Kojima

We have been watching Matt Field for the last few years.  Matt originally was a hero of the "keeping it real" stretched tire scene but has evolved from the time we first noticed him in 2010 to become a fierce competitor whose time has come.  Matt has always fielded (bad pun) really nice looking cars and his latest ride not only looks damn good but is packed with some of the latest state of the art drift technology.

Project STurdteen:  Building the Competitive Drift Car from a Pile

by Mike Kojima

Rathyna Gomer is MotoIQ's sales manager but in her other life she is a Pro-Am drifter.  We are in the process of rebuilding her 350Z competition car and due to its complexity the process is taking a while.  In order for her to have a ride for the 2016 season, we decided to do some upgrades to her practice car, an S13 with the venerable SR20DET.  For a practice missile car, her S13 is pretty decently built but since it is a missile car, it has seen better days.  The car has been worked over by a conveniently placed practice lot pole and by doing tandem with a random on a drift day.  That and Rathyna's habit of doing body repairs by backing her car into the wall at balcony has left the old S13 in a state of ugly.

Keep Racing Fun- Bonneville Speed Week-2013

By Mike Kojima

Every once in a while we do a behind the scenes story about some of our Motorsports adventures and stuff we do on the road.  Although this might look like we're living the life according to what a lot of our readers think, when you try to perform on a high level, it actually takes a lot of blood, sweat, hard work, and passion to do what we do.  We are often too busy making things happen in the Motorsports world to document our adventures but this time we decided to focus on one of our main projects for this year: Editor Chuck Johnson breaking the H/PS world land speed record at Bonneville Speed Week 2013.

Project 240SX Land Speed Racer:  Flat Out on the Bonneville Salt Flats (Video)

By Chuck Johnson

It’s really easy for people to discredit going fast in a straight line.  Hell, I myself have been guilty of snickering at the thought of "run what you brung" night at the drag races.  I mean how much skill could it really take to hold a steering wheel straight and mash on the throttle for a ¼ mile?  The truth is though, it doesn’t matter if it’s driving in a straight line or around the same damn circle for hours.
