TESTED: Toyo Proxes RA1

By Steve Rockwood

It seems the RA1 has been around since before time began. Ask an "old timer" (well, relatively) and they'll tell you that the RA1 was the holy grail of DOT competition tires. A decade ago, a walk through the hot pits of any track event would net you rows and rows of RA1-shod cars. Times have changed, but have they passed the RA1 by? We installed a set on Project G20 Racecar to find out.


 

OFF-TRACK: Ruger 1022 Buildup - Making a Match Grade .22!

By Mike Kojima

Judging by the people we hang around with in the car industry, it seems like about 90% of car nuts in our circle are also into guns so we decided to do a little write up on one of our gun projects.  This is a purely for fun tech story and we would never politicize our interest.  We are not doomsday preppers, nor are we fantasizing about smoking zombies, but we do like target shooting and higher performance in the stuff we do.  We figured that our readers would like to see what we did to turn a Ruger 1022 into a tack driving paper puncher.

Project Gen 3STi: Testing the COBB Intake with Some Anti-Bling

By Wes Dumalski

Welcome to WCOB radio... all Cobb Tuning All the time... OK so yeah... the last few installments of Project GR have sounded like the making of a Cobb Tuning radio station! Well quite frankly every time we get the car to a certain point power wise we talk to our friends at Cobb and they tell us we should "try the SF Intake, it's a trick bit of kit and you will love it..." OK so our arms get twisted and we wind up with Cobb's SF Intake and Airbox along with a slew of Cobb goodies to look the part. In this installment we will be testing the SF intake and airbox along with showcasing the e-tune possibilities with the Cobb AccessPORT.

TESTED: HANS Adjustable and Sparco Harness

By Steve Rockwood

Racing is hazardous to your health.  With a helmet on, one of the most immediate dangers to your continued existence on this planet is a basilar skull fracture. I, like most out there, prefer my neck to stay unbroken, so I went in search of an SFI 38.1 compliant device and harness built specifically for it.  Luckily, HANS and Sparco had something available that had higher expectations than me.


 

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?


 

Tested: RS-R's Ran-Up Oil Treatment, Power in a Bottle

By Mike Kojima

"Mike, MotoIQ has to try our Ran-Up oil treatment", RS-R's John Masuda would say to me every time I saw him over the past year.  "It gives you 5-12 more whp in our testing and I really want you to try it".  Yeah right I would think.  Sounds too good to be true.

Project Gen 3STi: Testing the COBB Down Pipe and Exhaust

By Wes Dumalski

When last we left off we were singing the praises of AMS and the Cobb AccessPORT, what we left out was the fact that on the way home from AMS we were already making phone calls for more go fast parts. Yes, I had been in the car for all of 10 minutes enjoying the new found power only to realize that more power was just a phone call away. HMM what should I do next? Easy, free up horsepower through less exhaust restriction. The call was to Cobb and it was to discuss the downpipe in particular. I honestly had no plans to replace the stock exhaust as I am a stick in the mud when it comes to loud street cars and quite frankly every Boxer engine with a fart can sounds like Project 200SX with a blown head gasket... (No really they do). 


 

2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport review

TESTED:  2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport

by Greg Vogel

The all new Lexus GS 350 F Sport shines in a lot of the right places. Park and walk away and you find yourself looking back at it more than once. Slip inside the cockpit and you find it very comfortable and easy to enjoy. Mash the loud pedal and the car jumps and screams with a very pleasing wail. This car could be driven quite sedately to the track, flogged for the day, then brought home and sported to the club for a night out. It really is that versatile.


 

  

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!


 

Project G20 Racecar: AEM AQ-1 Data Logger Install

By Steve Rockwood

My memory is horrible.  Outside of which landmarks to aim for, my recollection of what I just did to nail that last corner just right is downright absent, and I couldn't really even tell you if it actually was nailed just right.  Peak coolant temp on that last session?  Hell if I know, seemed fine when I bothered to look at it.  A/F ratios?  The guy behind me said I shot flames on decel, so rich would be my guess.  Intake temps?  No clue.  The fact is, there's a lot going on inside a racecar, and it requires a whole hell of a lot more of my attention than I can give.  Enter the AEM AQ-1 Data Logger.
