Project S2000: Part 2 - Suspension Tricks

By Khiem Dinh, photos by Jeff Naeyaert

We chose our S2000 as a project car for its handling prowess.  With multilink suspension and a 50/50 weight distribution, the S2K has all the right stuff to carve corners with. AP2 S2K's like our car have revised rear toe link pick up locations so they don't exhibit the twitchy at the limit cornering issues that the older AP1 chassis has.  What's good can always be made better so we decided to spend our efforts in improving our car's suspension in the next round of mods.

VIDEO: Project Scion tC at Long Beach!

Check out this sweet video of our Project Scion shot at the Long Beach Grand Prix.  Great in car camera shots show exactly how hard it is to drive on a street course.  Looking at how little the driver can see to aid in positioning the car and even work in traffic will give you reasons to respect what Dan Gardner and Robert Stout do!  This video is a must see.  If there is interest we can post some more raw in car video at a later date.

Project EVO X Part 2, Making Great Brakes Even Better!

By Mike Kojima

When we last worked on Project EVO X we installed a very comprehensive yet very streetable suspension system from KW and Whiteline. In continuing our theme for building the ultimate EVO X without compromising its daily driveabilty, we now turn our attention to the brakes, wheels and tires.

Team owner and driver Dan Gardner was the fastest Touring Car in MotoIQ's Project Scion tC, with Stout taking second position in its sister car.  Neither driver had ever driven the course before, with both of the DG Spec drivers coming up to speed quickly on the unforgiving Long Beach street course.


 

MotoIQ Project Sentra Spec V

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V part 5; Lessons in Geometry

By Mike Kojima

Although Nissan hyped up the Sentra Spec-V as a performance sedan in its marketing campaign, in truth the car was a little more than a piece of basic transportation with a few performance enhancing bells and whistles.  The car was cursed with a crude beam axle rear suspension and a McPherson strut front suspension whose geometry was designed around efficient packaging and relentless understeer rather than performance.  Because of this, the Sentra is at a significant disadvantage in the handling department when compared to its FWD rivals, mainly Hondas, the Scion TC and even the Infiniti G20.  Despite of all this, we at MotoIQ are always up to an engineering challenge and we set about to rework the SE-R's suspension to attempt to make it a little more competitive.

By Jeff Naeyaert

Normally we don't do Project "previews" here on MotoIQ, but normally Mike hasn't ground down 1 of his only 2 typing fingers in a power sanding accident rendering him unable to write and normally the FedEX guy doesn't bring us as exciting stuff as he did last week!  So here it is, an introduction to Project V8 RX-7!

Project Pathfinder Part 11, Fixing the Wobbly Steering for Good

By Mari Umekubo

We had just gone through the front suspension of Project Pathfinder a year ago in the hope that our mods at the time would tighten up its pathetically loose and wandering steering.  Although our mods made a huge difference, after about 12,000 miles, a couple of off road excursions and a bunch of towing it became apparent that our front suspension would again need attention.


 

Project Miatabusa Part 1: What The Hell Are We Thinking?

by Dave Coleman

Today we bring you a very special Flashback Friday to Part 1 of Project Miatabusa. Why would we do this you ask?  It must be because Part 17 is just around the corner! So for those who aren't familiar with the project here's a chance to start at the beginning.  For those who are already familiar here's a chance to stroll down memory lane and get excited for the next installment.
