ARK Design Team America BNR32 GT-R Update

by Mike Kojima and Eric Hsu

The Team America crew has been busy and the car has really come together in the past couple of weeks.  The goal is to be able to have the car dyno tuned and track session tested before it has to go into a shipping container and hopefully end up in Australia this time (if you have been following our story, two years ago, instead of going to WTAC, the car ended up in China for a few months due to the freight forwarder making a huge mistake).

Eric Hsu and Gary Castillo have been working around the clock to get the car done with everyone else on the team pitching in on the weekends. The major fabrication is nearly complete and the engine has been started and run.  What's left is to finish up the top secret Andrew Brilliant designed aero package, do the final installation of the wire harness and to clean up and work on the cosmetics of the car like the Team America inspired wrap.

Global Time Attack - Pro Championship - Road Atlanta

by Wes Dumalski

Additional Photos by Sarah Forst

I am sitting on the plane on the way to Atlanta to cover Global Time Attack’s first Pro round of 2014 and reading my coverage of last year's event. As I read my own words I am excited by what happened and I think to myself, how in the hell do we top THAT? My fingers frantically type this while the angry toddler behind me uses my seat back as a jungle gym. Perhaps he too was reading last years coverage, or perhaps he was just pissed he was cramped up in this tin can. I share his sentiment as I also want out of here... Partially because I want this damn kid off my back but mainly because I am a total geek for time attack. 

Like last year, Global Time Attack shares Road Atlanta with the 2nd stop for the Formula Drift series and that brings out a lot of people and a lot of cars. Looking at the entry list  gets us excited as the classes are full of some of the top names in the sport from nearly every corner of the country and even some of our friends up North eh’. Time Attack is not dead... It's right here on MotoIQ.

GrimmSpeed Subaru top mount intercooler tested MotoIQ

Tested: GrimmSpeed Subaru Top Mount Intercooler

by Wes Dumalski

Around here we appreciate quality and well thought out parts that fill a void in the marketplace. Regardless of company size or the expanse of their market reach it is refreshing to see a company and its collective mindset introduce a product that doesn’t re-invent the wheel but goes a long way to making it much more efficient. In this case that company is GrimmSpeed and that product is their Subaru Top Mount Intercooler.

igloocase igloo case iPhone 5 MotoIQ review Wes DumalskiTested: Igloo Case for iPhone

By: Wes Dumalski

As much as we like fast cars and sano builds here at MotoIQ we also love tech gadgets! Messing with cameras, microphones, cell phones, instatwittergrambook uploads; all of these things are what we do on a daily basis to bring MotoIQ to the masses. It should go without saying that when new items hit the market that offer us the ability to do those things in a more efficient manner, our pointy nerd ears perk up and our fingers buzz the web in search of said future altering technical goodness. In this case the gadget of mention is the Igloo case for the iPhone. Click on is as we put the case through its paces…

Road Trip: 24 Hours of Nürburgring

By Sarah Forst

One of the world's most awesome motorsports events is more like car racing at Fusion Festival, Germany's version of Burning Man. The cars, the camping, the bonfires, and this year, the deluge of rain and fog that caused a red flag to the race. Follow us as MotoIQ visits Germany for Beer and Soaking at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring and search for Bill Caswell.

Turn in Concepts TiC X Brace CarLab Development

Tested: TiC WRX Suspension Components 

By Wes Dumalski

Here at MotoIQ we really love our jobs; despite the pay or lack thereof we get the chance to play with some really cool toys, see some really cool cars, and test some cutting edge parts! One of the difficult things we face is having parts we really want to test that do not apply to one of our immediate project cars. When we have those scenarios we are forced to improvise by finding a guinea pig vehicle and having our way with someone else's ride for our own sick pleasure and for the sake of filling this web-site with real world content.  In this case the bovine friendly folks at Turn in Concepts wanted us to put some of their latest products through the proverbial MotoIQ paces and report back with our rants and raves. 

For this test TiC wanted our review on the CarLabs Development X Brace and Super Sexy bushing set for the 02-07 Impreza Sedan platforms.

2013 Modified StreetCar Shootout - The Rules, The Cars, The Big Tease.

By Wes Dumalski and Sarah Forst 

Like all good stories, this one starts on the airplane while on line for the shitter. I hear a voice come up behind me “my GOD this woman won’t shut the hell up”... I turn to fund the animated Bill Caswell and we begin bantering about this woman on the plane who had been talking about absolutely nothing at all for 2 hours. I am on this plane and talking to Bill Caswell because I could not get a refund on my Expedia package and rather than let the tickets go to waste I figured I could still head to Arizona and cover the UMS tuning time attack event and find some good feature cars. As luck would have it two complete car nuts are on the same plane heading to the same place to do the same damn thing; be geeks.

Detailing 111: Wax Tech

by Connor Harrison

To many people, waxing is an annual hassle and the benefit is only temporarily appreciated.  It is treated as something that isn’t really necessary, and only needs to be done if we’re getting spiffy for a night out on the town.  Waxing once a year is simply not often enough (don’t believe what you see on TV)!  Your car is under attack every time you drive it; all the dirt, tar, bug guts, bird poop, hard water, and acid rain work to degrade the finish of your vehicle.  Your wax is your protection from these environmental offenders, and it wears away much sooner than you might think.

Forza Horizon

Sneak Peak: Forza Horizon

By Justin Banner

"Cool, new Forza game coming out!" Was the first thought I had after hearing about what was coming down the pike from Turn 10. Then I read more into it, "Wait, open world environment, story lines, no real tracks?! Is this for real or some sort of practical joke?" The more I read about it, the more I worried. Then I played the game. Were my fears coming true or did I worry too much?

Company Profile - Radium Engineering

By Wes Dumalski

por·nog·ra·phy  

[pawr-nog-ruh-fee]

noun: obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit.

Shit, I could use the above to describe just about every article I have ever written. But the reality is that when I first laid my eyes on the offerings of Radium Engineering, PORN was the first thing that came to mind. In the current sea of inferior parts to lay gaze on the products that Radium proudly engineers, prototypes, and builds here in the States is nothing short of inspiring!

Red or Blue threadlocker?

Ask Sarah: Red or Blue thread locker?

By Sarah Forst

I just recently completed Eibach lowering springs and anti-sway bars upgrade on my 08 Infiniti G37S Coupe.  My question is when and where should I use threadlocker (red/blue) or Loctite? Different sources say different things, but is there a rule of thumb for applying these adhesives?

Thanks,
Kelvin
