SEMA 2016: Wrapup

by Sarah Forst

The car industry is back! The last decade has been a little like wheelspin at the line but we're finally getting some traction. The Las Vegas Convention Center was jam-packed with 60,000 weary enthusiasts drooling over the latest trends, crazy builds, and hottest products. Previously empty halls inviting a siesta were congested with manufacturers, cars that barely resemble their stock look, and the occasional fatigued booth model while attendees battled to swim upstream. Join MotoIQ for some autoerotica action!

Doodlebug of Doom: Saving a Superpowered Minibike

by David Zipf

If you’re already planning to skip this article because it includes the word “Doodlebug” in the title, then I implore you to read on.  What we stumbled onto is no kid’s toy: some deranged individual took a cheap, Walmart bike and then strapped an actual go-kart racing engine to it, lost interest, and put it on Craigslist.  And then we picked it up because if it’s one thing a man needs in his life, it’s an interesting story to have told at his funeral.

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.

by Mike Kojima

If you are a Honda fan or a follower of Time Attack then you are probably familiar with the Spoon Sports USA Civic, the little Honda that could. Last year the Spoon Civic with Formula Drift Champion Dai Yoshihara at the wheel, set the Time Attack world on its ear by surpassing the previously thought unbeatable FWD Unlimited lap record for Buttonwillow 13 CW.

Project 5.0 Mustang (The White One) Making it Stop with Essex Parts AP Radi-CAL Brake System

by Mike Kojima

Our Project Mustang came stock with pretty decent brakes. From the factory our Ford features 4 piston Brembo calipers with 355x32mm one piece rotors. However, we still wanted to upgrade our brakes as our much wider tires, 20" wheels, upgraded suspension and engine would stress the brakes a lot more. Our Mustang also weighs a punishing 3700lbs with really cooks the brakes. The Ford factory has put larger brakes on some of the higher end SN197 Mustangs so we figured we should follow suit as well.


 

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.


 

Effort Equals Results: 50 Years of Penske Racing

by David Zipf

The greatest man to ever lead a racing team is Roger Penske.  NASCAR, Formula 1, Can-Am, Trans-Am, ALMS, IMSA, V8 Supercars, and of course IndyCar:  All are series where Roger has fielded cars; cars that have won.  In 2016, Penske Racing celebrates its 50th year and as the track that helped make Roger who he is, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum has a special exhibit on Penske Racing to commemorate this golden anniversary.  Follow us on a journey of half a century of great American Racing.
