anti lag rocket beyond the dyno

External Combustion Rocket Anti Lag System + JDM Spec C Impreza STI

By Eric Hsu 

The external combustion anti-lag "rocket" combustor was used on the factory Prodrive built WRC STi Subaru cars to improve the EJ20 engine's inherent mediocre torque and engine response. The rocket is so good that a version of it is still in use today in the 2012 Japanese Super GT GT300 STi BRZ which also uses an EJ20. Last time I wrote a teaser article, but this time we'll take a look at some of the details of the rocket combustor anti-lag system as it applies to my buddy Ben's JDM Impreza STi Spec C street car over in the UK.

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.

How to PROPERLY select and size TIRES for PERFORMANCE

by Billy Johnson

The most important part of your car is not the engine, suspension, or brakes. It’s the TIRES!!!  This is because your car can only perform as well as the capability of its tires. I’m often asked which tire is best and what size to buy.  In this article I discuss my methods for choosing and properly sizing the right tires.  I’m not into the “hella-flush” or “stance” scenes so this article is focused towards those who care about the PERFORMANCE of their car, whether on the street or on the track.

Heyward Wagner has been tasked with helping the Sports Car Club of America grow and with that comes a pretty official, yet nebulous sounding title as the Director of Experiential Programs. Just who is he and what the heck does he do?

GarageLove How To: Tire Testing

by Per Schroeder

The neck-twisting grip that modern performance tires deliver was once the territory of just limited-production race compounds. Couple that delightful evolution with the rise of affordable data acquisition systems and more track-capable cars than ever before—and you just have to wonder—are we in the era where anyone can find the absolute best tire for their car? Can the hardcore enthusiast simply buy several sets of tires and figure out which brand works best for their car, track and driving style?

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Car Control

by Billy Johnson

Braking late, hitting apexes, and powering out of corners:  The goal of driving a car quickly requires keeping the tires at their limit at all times.  Having good car control is a crucial skill in the development of a driver to not only drive a car fast, but also to have the ability to get up to speed quickly in a new car and on new tracks.  However, without self control and discipline, having good car control can actually work against you.

Project Car Dreams

Part 1: Finding Your Project

by Per Schroeder

For everyone that says that the hardest part about any project is the first step, I counter with this:  starting something is easy—it’s finishing the job that takes the most out of you.   Automotive restoration can be thought of as a metaphor for life.  There are lessons learned, problems solved—and layers of complexity that are often overlooked as we go from day to day, or task to task.

Chasing the Dragon

by Per Schroeder

Sometimes the best roadtrips arise from happy accidents.  Maybe “accident” is the wrong word choice when talking about a drive in a car, but nonetheless, random happenings make for the best trips. One such bit of randomness got me on the best roads in the country with a set of tires that needed to be worn out before they were thrown away.

GarageLove: A Corner Station In My Backyard

by Per Schroeder

A friend of mine pointed out that that it was pretty funny that many of the houses he saw on his morning commute had a corner station in the backyard. Puzzled, I asked RJ what the heck he was talking about. "Gazebos—everyone has a prefabbed gazebo on their property it seems—that’s what a lot of race tracks use as worker stations."

GarageLove: Five Car Things Anyone Can Collect

by Per Schroeder

Thanks to collector auction craze and the inevitable glut of reality shows about it, the market for classic cars has become very volatile. Many enthusiasts have been priced out of the market as values of even the rattiest of project cars skyrocket. The early Porsche 911s are the latest beneficiary—victim—of this trend, with values increasing 50 to 100 percent within the last year.
