If you ask anybody under thirty years of age about the sport of Rally, you’d be hard pressed to get an answer that’s doesn't include something about Ken Block. Thanks to his not-quite-rally-and-not-quite-autocross online videos, he’s mashed the two most esoteric motorsports into something that doesn’t really exist, but is now “Rally” to the masses.

My philosophy in modifying my bicycle is the similar to Project S2000 or anything for that matter: when something wears out, upgrade! The past year has seen some significant upgrades to my pedal powered ride with the goal of going faster of course. Remember, the better shape you’re in, the faster driver you’ll be.

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.

Some of the cars at Australia's World Time Attack or WTAC for short are so amazing and so exotic that for most of us, we can just look and drool. We were looking at cars to feature and we wanted to show what could be done for a moderate amount of cash by regular people. Clean solid work by smart people but nothing that needed open wheel or prototype levels of engineering and fabrication skill. In short, something that most of us or a good local shop could build with a regular person reachable budget.

We test Ford’s new 2015 Mustang EcoBoost to determine if a turbocharged 4-cylinder Mustang bridges the gap between the American Hot-Rodding community and Import Tuners. How does the Ecoboost stack up against rear-wheel drive icons such as the Honda S2000, turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars like the Subaru WRX, and hot hatches like the VW Golf GTI? Read on to find out.

The thing about being involved in a search, perhaps more aptly named a quest, is that one usually follows a meandering path as opposed to a direct route. My quest started just over a decade ago when I began the path to improve my Nissan NX 1600 beyond the limitations of what the factory had imposed upon it. Having owned the car since 1992, I knew what it was good at and what some of the limitations were. In 2011 I fulfilled a huge part of my quest, which was the installation of an SR20DET from a Pulsar GTi-R. That moved me into the next phase of my quest, which was improving the handling and the traction. If you have read my previous articles then you know my disappointment in finding that adding the horsepower has produced great straight line speed but reduced what was an amazing momentum/cornering car into a cornering lump. Each year since there has been improvement, and hopefully this year will be a huge step in the right direction.

Here it is, one of the most iconic cars in Formula Drift and you can race and drift it for yourself! Mike takes us through the unboxing video of this RC car with his unique dry humor and Dai himself makes a cameo appearance.

At the end of Part 2 of the Polystrand GT-Lite Project, we had finalized the preliminary design for the independent rear suspension (IRS), generated the CAD model, and sent our CRX off to the bodyshop sans rear suspension. Thanks to Rassini, we had our virtual computer model of the chassis courtesy of Chris Galea’s work with the FARO unit, and Tony Berlingieri prepared the car by removing the old rear suspension and a lot of the now unnecessary supporting structure. Additionally, before the car left on the flatbed, Tony added some framework to which we’ll install the new IRS unit when the car comes back.

In keeping with our new tradition of using our secret photoshoot location behind the palatal MotoIQ Mega Shop, our next Alley feature is a very special car. Enrique Perez's 1980 TE72 Toyota Corolla. The TE70 series Corolla produced from 1978 to 1983, is one of our favorites as it is a classical Corolla with a front engine and rear wheel drive. Much of our youth was spend modding these cars. With their near bulletproof 3TC engine they could take a lot of hard use and we spent a lot of time boring them to 2 liters, strapping on dual sidedraft carburetors and hosing them with Nitrous Oxide.
