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.

Nerd's Eye View: The MCA Suspensions "Hammerhead" Silvia S13

Story by Eric Hsu, Photos by Jeff Naeyaert and Josh Coote at MCA Suspension

The MCA S13 finished in 3rd place overall at the 2012 World Time Attack Challenge which is pretty amazing considering it's rear wheel drive. That's no simple feat in an event dominated by all wheel drive cars, big budgets, and world famous JDM tuners. What got the MCA S13 there was a great build by Murray and Josh Coote and their crew of friends with attention to detail exactly where it was needed. Of course great driving by ex-A1 GP Kiwi driving ace, Earl Bamber, doesn't hurt either. You've seen how crazy this thing looks and you've heard how fast it is. Now come and check out what's underneath the skin of the MCA S13 as I walk you through the car in detail. Best of all, IT DOESN'T HAVE AN LS ENGINE IN IT!

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. Click on the link to see the in-car video!

10 Fastest Cars of the World Time Attack Challenge Pro Class

by Eric Hsu

Now that the dust has settled from WTAC 2011 itself and the thrashing to prepare in the weeks prior to the event, I'm going to attempt to do an overview of the 10 fastest cars @ WTAC 2011. It seems there was plenty of coverage of the event and the cars on sites, blogs, picture hosting sites, etc. but nowhere could I find a summary of the 10 fastest cars in one place. Looking to build or bring a car to the WTAC 2012 Pro class? Look no further because this is your guide to your competition.

Project 200SX: Time Trial Bound - Part 1

by Wes Dumalski 

Track Photos by Tom Hitzeman

Let's pretend you spend years of your life, thousands of your hard earned dollars, a pint of blood, a gallon of sweat, and countless four letter words building a car. It goes through various stages in its life, and the end result of the project is a car destined for the track.... Two possible outcomes for this somewhat common scenario.... You either become a hard parking car show stunta with a track worthy car or you actually take it to the track. Obviously we chose the latter. The next question was if our last name isn't Johnson, Coleman, or Kojima.... How do we enter the competitive world of motor sport?

The answer..... Time Trials.

WPC Treatment saved our engine!

WPC Treatment Saved Our Engine!

By Mike Kojima

We had just installed a freshly built SR20DE engine for the Dog Car.  This is the B14 Nissan Sentra race car that we have been campaigning for many years in road racing and time attack which had been sitting dormant since 2006.  With the advent of Redline’s MPTCC race class we decided to dust the car off, freshen it up and have Formula D drifting ace Dai Yoshihara campaign the car in the TU class.

By Mike Kojima

Fastbrakes is an Arizona company whose claim to fame is making affordable brake upgrade kits for many cars and having applications for niche models like the Nissan Sentra SE-R.  Since some of us race SE-Rs as they are a cheap and sturdy platform, we have a lot of experience with Fastbrakes' upgrade kits for the car.

Go fast Bits G-Force boost controller!

By Wes Dumalski

Our mates overseas at Go Fast Bits have been hard at work perfecting a new feature packed boost controller called the G-Force that has hit our shores! This cutting edge unit has all the bells and whistles any boost junkie could ask for. We recently put the G-Force through it's paces on Project 200SX in an effort to share our feedback with Go Fast Bits themselves..... Here are our impressions of the unit they sent us.

Project 200SX - Track Ready?

By Wes Dumalski

It's no secret that driving your car at speed on a road course will bring to light all of the car's weaknesses. After sorting the motor and suspension we decided to take Project 200SX to a few track day events to put the car through its paces. While the car has proven dead reliable we certainly found its shortcomings.

Project 200SX - Overhauling the suspension...

By Wes Dumalski

We're not going to lie, our old Ground Control and KYB AGX combo might have been good back in the day, but after too much autocross and track time it was showing its years. The time has come to replace it with something worthwhile, the big question we had was what do we replace it with?

Project Nissan 200SX - Slimming down and cleaning up...

By Wes Dumalski

We realize this installment's title sounds more like we are getting Project Nissan 200SX ready to hit the dating scene and quite frankly that is what all of the odd's and end's we have been cleaning up has felt like... Only our crunches were done tweaking under the dash and the shaving of weight was done via mail order rather than a strict diet.

Project Low Buck Nissan SR20DE Part 2

By Mike Kojima

In our last edition of Project Low Buck SR20DE, we stated our goals to obtain a decent amount of naturally aspirated horsepower and good track day drivable reliability from an underdog plain jane SR20DE without braking the bank. Fulfilling these goals would also create an engine with excellent street driving characteristics as well. All of our engine work will be done on the cheap with a tight budget in mind but with plenty of attention paid to minor details that can really help an engine live under the stress of track day pounding, perhaps the most abusive environment that a grass roots enthusiast will subject his engine to.

Project 200SX- Getting it Down the 1320

"Hey Brah, wutz it run in da quarter mile"

In the 6+ years of building this project this is the question we have gotten asked more than any other, sometimes it was asked in a less ghetto fashion, the fact remains that people wanted to know how fast the car could cover 1320'...
