Building the Subaru VA WRX clutch and Flywheel with ACT!

by Mike Kojima

All wheel drive cars are traditionally hard on clutches. With tons of traction, launches involve a lot of clutch slippage. Fast shifting and even downshifting are all harder on the clutch due to the increased traction of 4 wheels.  With this in mind building a daily driver heavy duty clutch for a street car is always a challenge. 

It just so happened that our friends at ACT were wrapping up development of a clutch and flywheel combination for the late model VA WRX when we were at their office and we thought it might be a good opportunity to show what is deep inside ACT's WRX clutch which shares many design features with all ACT clutches.

Fast forward a few months and our friends at StopTech were able to get one of the first NP01 kits.  Since StopTech's facility was undergoing expansion it was agreed that the car would get built at the palatial MotoIQ mega shop and that we could do a series of articles on what it takes to build a winning NP01.

How we Killed the Value of a Partnership

by Mike Bonanni & Jordan Yost

Partnership, sponsorship, what’s the difference right? Although most of the automotive industry uses “sponsorship” as a general blanket term there is a major difference between a sponsorship and a partnership and they should in no way, shape, or form be treated the same way.

by Erik M Jacobs

Reese Cox cut his teeth behind the wheel of a Corvette, and his experience shows. In 1993, during the heyday of his time as team manager for Tommy Morrison Racing leading ZR-1 Corvettes through the 24 HRS of Daytona and other IMSA series, Reese founded MTI (Motorsports Technologies Incorporated) Racing. The 1998 SCCA World Challenge Rookie of the Year knows a thing or two about making these sleek bowties fast and powerful, and he was kind enough to open the doors of their shop to MotoIQ.

The rumble of a  Corvette’s big V8, supercharged, with cams is enough to shake the foundation of nearby buildings ... Walking to the shop door we were greeted with a beautiful, glistening black Chevrolet Chevelle SS.  And then you looked up and there was a 64 Corvette, the 69 Prostreet Camaro, a 2013 Camaro ZL1, a 2012 Corvette Z06, … and I could not count them all in that first few minutes.

Pioneer Video Producer Taro Koki is Now Using Social Media to Distribute Videos

By Jeff Kawano

Taro Koki was born in Japan but grew up most of his childhood life in the United States. As a child, he learned that Japanese pop culture was well received among his American classmates. Anime, manga books, figurines, funky snacks and of course cool cars. Japan was the land of all things “cool.” So when he moved back to Japan for college and several years later started his own video production company, he knew there was a demand for Japanese pop culture in the US.
