Driving Impressions: The CXC Simulator! 

by Mike Kojima

I am not a gamer, I have never liked video games and never gotten good at them.  I have always felt that I don't have the time for them.  I mean, I own a driving simulator chair with force feedback that my daughter plays with when she does Grand Turismo on our home big screen TV but I never got into it and when I have played it, I have always felt that it feels nothing like a car, not enough anyway where I could jump in and drive it.

By: Wes Dumalski

As much as we like fast cars and sano builds here at MotoIQ we also love tech gadgets!

World's Biggest Engine

Ken showed me a magazine the other day that showed the world's biggest engine. Being the engine geek I am, I did some googling and found out that the world's biggest engine is a Wartsila-Sulzer two-stroke turbo diesel RT-flex96C. It is available in an inline-6 (RB26000?) to an inline-14 cylinder configuration in 1 cylinder increments. Here's some stats on the 14 banger version:

Bore:   960mm or 37.8 inches
Stroke:   2500mm or 98.43 inches
Speed: 92-102rpm
Peak cylinder pressure: 19.6 bar or 2...

Ipod Battery Change

Last week my iPod took a shit and all it displayed on the screen was an cartoonish image of an iPod with a sad face. Nothing told me it was the battery taking a dump though. After several unsuccessful attempts at connecting with my PC via USB cable, I read somewhere on the Apple site that said that the battery might be gone if the symptoms I was having were happening. I was thinking that I should just buy a new iPod because my 4th gen click wheel iPod just looks so old school, but the Chinese side of me said, "no way man, this thing works perfectly." So I found the website an...

Snowboard Binding Angle

So I'm not an experienced snowboarder or anything nor do I claim to be. In fact my trip to Niseko (where I am at the moment) is only my 6th or 7th trip to a mountain for snowboarding. I am not hardcore into boarding, I do not give a shit about jumping or doing tricks, and I don't really care to look all stylish while doing it. I just enjoy kicking ass gliding over snow and slicing and dicing through turns. I own a pair of snowboard pants, some water resistant socks, some low buck Thinsulate gloves, some early 90's SCOTT Turbo goggles, and some thermal underwear. The gloves I use are not name brand and cost me $9. The SCOTT goggles were pretty much new, but I bought them in high sch...

Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens Camera


Real quick: the Kodak V705 is the bombest ass camera that is commercially available for a point and shoot. ISO and aperature adjustments are some of the cool features. The ultimate feature is the ultrawide angle lens. There are two lens an ultrawide and a 5x zoom. The trend started when Phil and Toshi bought the V570 in Japan when filming JDM Insider. My cheap ass finally forked out for a new digi cam and I must say I love this camera. $289 at if you use the google checkout feature. It comes in black, silver, and pink for you girls or fags out there. I got the silver one. Check it:
