AntiGravity's XA 4-1 Multi-Function Flashlight!

by Mike Kojima

A lot of you might be familiar with AntiGravity Batteries as the supplier of ultra light and powerful Lithium Ion batteries used in Motorsports. Their batteries have been used by us in a few of our projects, and most of our personal race cars sport their batteries. 


 

Lessons in Turbo Technology with Garrett - Burst Containment

by Mike Kojima

What is burst containment for a turbocharger, and why is it important?  A turbocharger is a system that has a lot of potential to cause a lot of bad stuff to happen to drivers, spectators, and surrounding equipment.  Why, might you ask? Well, a typical turbocharger can spin at up to an unfathomable 200,000 rpm for a small frame turbo and a still amazing 90,000 rpm for a large frame turbo!  That is a ton of potentially ass-kicking force. We will show you how much later and it's enough to make you cringe.


 

How Magical is Black Magic Intense Wheel Cleaner? We Test it Out!

by Karla Pestotnik

With a word such as 'magic' in the name, it's easy to assume that you're getting some really good wheel cleaner. We are slightly more skeptical, however, and we had to see for ourselves. What if Black Magic wheel cleaner didn't live up to its name? 

Okay, enough quirky jokes. Let's get to scrubbing! Or do we even need to scrub? Looking at the directions...


 

Testing Meguiar's Two Step Headlight Restoration Kit!

by Mike Kojima

Any car that has the newer plastic headlights will experience weathering and yellowing eventually. This is caused by UV light exposure degrading the protective coating on the surface of the lights. Once the coating is eroded, UV light makes quick work of the clear plastic underneath, and the light becomes cloudy and yellow. 


 

Tested! NOCO Genius Boost GB40-Emergency Jump Starter

by Mike Kojima

Having a dead battery really sucks. Not only can it leave you stranded, but you are also dependent on finding a good samaritan that is willing to give you a jump start. Not only is this bad because you are depending on luck, but it also exposes you to danger as you ask perfect strangers for help.


 

Making the Ford F-150 Ecoboost Drive and Tow Smoother with Eibach Shocks

by Rathyna Gomer

My dad's Ford F-150 Ecoboost is something I frequently drive, usually to pick up car parts and to tow one of the racecars out to the track. Similar to many folks who also own a racecar, the majority of my focus and money has gone into the racecar, not the tow rig. In actuality, I'm spending hundreds of more hours in the truck picking up parts for the car and towing the car to the track, than actually driving on the track. 


 



AEM AQ1 - Affordable Data Logging and More!

by Ramitha Edirisinghe

While on-board data logging has been used by professional race teams for decades, it has been simply too expensive for the average grassroots racer to afford. Recently, however, AEM came out with an awesome entry level data logging unit aimed at the grassroots racer: the AQ1. With an MSRP of $395, the AQ1 packs a lot of great features at a very reasonable price.


 

Tested: KW Suspensions BMW F30 DDC Remote Adjustable Suspension

by Mike Kojima

A few years ago we got to test a sample of KW Suspensions' electronically adjustable DDC coilovers while visiting them at their German global headquarters. We sampled a 3 series BMW coupe on twisty German back roads and on the Autobahn and came away favorably impressed. We were able to easily, and quickly, adjust the suspension from comfortable to firm to match our current driving modd and/or road conditions. 


 

Zestino Gredge 07RS Race Track Tire Test

by Karla Pestotnik

It would be pretty comical if we saw Usain Bolt running the 100 meter dash in the Olympics without shoes. He would most likely not be breaking any world records or winning any gold medals without shoes on. Undoubtedly, a good pair of track spikes has helped Usain gain the traction he needs to push himself forward and eclipse the run in record breaking pace. The same can be said for someone looking to whip up some quick lap times with just wheels and no tires on. A good set of high-performance tires can make or break the handling capabilities of any vehicle. This concept applies even more so on a purpose-built vehicle designed to push the limits of lateral g's around a race track.


Tested: Shoei X-Fourteen Helmet

by Khiem Dinh

A buddy of mine had a brand new Shoei X-Fourteen helmet that he was testing out. He wanted to get a second opinion on it so he asked me if I wanted to try it too. As I’m a cheap bastard and it would take hell freezing over for me to spend my own money on this top-of-the-line helmet, I definitely jumped at the opportunity to try it out!
