We get a lot of oils and lubricants to evaluate at the MotoIQ office and for the most part we have had good results with the latest high quality synthetic motorsports oils that come across our desks and into the crankcases of our various race and project cars.  When it comes to quality oils we get pretty uniform results, clean burning, low deposits and good wear of the engine's internal components.

by Martin Gonzales

The second race weekend of the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship presented by Motul was a much further drive than the usual SoCal events the series is used to participating in. This time around the MPTCC was taking a road trip to Nevada! But we're not talking about the bright city lights and nocturnal lifestyle of Las Vegas. No sir.

Nerd’s Eye View: McLaren P1

by Khiem Dinh

The McLaren P1 represents one of the latest exotics to come to the market. The P1, Porsche 918, and Ferrari LaFerrari represent the newest hyper cars, cars that go beyond the previous super cars in not only performance but also price. You’ll need a solid seven figures in the bank to own and operate each of these cars. The cars have their own differences in flavor to the hyper car theme, but know they have all taken hybrid technology to develop cars with performance beyond anything imaginable previously.


 

The Road to Speed Week 2014 Part 3: Gettin' Wired With Zombie Vampire!

by Joe Lu 

The countdown to Speed Week is well underway, which means that pretty much everything becomes secondary to getting the car put back together.  One of the most important additions to Project 240SX LSR this year is the new wire harness, the sole informational network responsible for making sure that the car is able to operate to its full potential, and also do it reliably.  As covered in a previous update, the old wire harness which was completed as the car was literally being loaded on the trailer accomplished the goal of getting the car to the salt. However, we knew that it would need to be upgraded in the interest of reliability for future seasons.  Well, the future is now, and the new wire harness is built to perform.  


 

Attacking Time: James Houghton's Integra Type R

by Frank Ewald - with James Houghton

In 2013 Jimmy set multiple track records in the Canadian Sports Car Series (CSCS). Including a time at Toronto Motorsports Park of 1:14.376 in the unlimited Front Wheel Drive (FWD) class, besting his own record of 1:16.52 that he had set in 2012. Car and driver still hold the street car track record for CSCS, set in 2011 before it had forced induction. Not content with this season, Jimmy hauled his car 4000 kilometres to Buttonwillow to compete with Global Time Attack. He switched around his setup so that he could compete in the Limited FWD class. He placed second with a time of 1:55.685.
