Tanner Foust is returning to Formula D, bringing his GRC sponsors VW and Rockstar Energy Drinks to his FD program. Unfortunatly Tanner is only going to be at selected events on the FD schedule that don't conflict with his other professional commitments. Tanner's return to drifting is also significant as he is teamed up with Papadakis Racing's Star driver Fredric Aasbo making the Rockstar Energy team the dream team of drifting.

Newly formed on January 1, 2015, ChumpCar Canada is now a distinctly separate organization from the Optima Batteries ChumpCar World Series. Months of planning, working behind the scenes, and a lot of sweat, tears, and laughter resulted into the roar of motors firing up as forty-two cars participated in the inaugural race. Held at Ontario's storied Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, you could sense the excitement in the air. Photo-journalists from several publications, yours truly included, were present to witness this new race organization's first race.

When your average guy thinks of a sport bike, typically Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki come to mind from the land of the rising sun. For those with more means, Ducati, Aprilia, and MV Agusta from the land of love are the crotch rockets of choice. Even the Germans have jumped into the fray in relatively recent times with BMW launching an assault on the established players from Japan and Italy. When it comes to America, Harley Davidson comes to mind with big rumbling V-twins in big hogs. But there is a glimmer of hope.

Reese Cox cut his teeth behind the wheel of a Corvette, and his experience shows. In 1993, during the heyday of his time as team manager for Tommy Morrison Racing leading ZR-1 Corvettes through the 24 HRS of Daytona and other IMSA series, Reese founded MTI (Motorsports Technologies Incorporated) Racing. The 1998 SCCA World Challenge Rookie of the Year knows a thing or two about making these sleek bowties fast and powerful, and he was kind enough to open the doors of their shop to MotoIQ. Inside, we found a lot more than just some fast coupes.

The lines on this C2 Corvette are stunning. Whether you are looking at it from the front, the back, the top, or the sides this car is an incredible work of art. The one that I am currently looking at and writing about is a 1964 Corvette StingRay and is now a fifty-one year old automobile. While this particular car has undergone a frame off restomod the paint and body have not been touched. The body on this car is in amazing shape and the paint is almost perfect. The only sign that this car has had any changes made are the massive brake rotors and calipers peeking out from behind the wheels and replacing the original drum brakes. That is, until you see under the hood or have the car up on a hoist.

Extreme Engine Tech: Technosquare's Monster Naturally Aspirated Toyota 4AG - Part I
by Mike Kojima
The Toyota 4AG is a historic engine, one that was essential in launching sport compact car culture in the USA. In 1985 the 4AG first rocked the automotive world. It was the standard engine in the Toyota Corolla GTS, the famed Hachi Roku AE86. The AE86 was the last of the RWD Corollas and Toyota made history by equipping it with the revolutionary 4AG engine. Not to be forgotten, the AW11 MR2 mid engine sports car was also powered by the 4AG.

In Part 1 of Size Matters, we went over the basic concept of sizing the turbo for the application and desired torque curve shape to match the intended use of the vehicle. You know, because a couple million people a year ask what size turbo they should get for their _______ (insert application here, i.e. car, motorcycle, boat, scooter, lawn mower, etc). Once everyone gets a bit more turbo savvy, they learn of the concept of boost from a small turbo does not equal boost of a big turbo. Well, we’re going to explain why.

One of my tasks for this winter was to ensure that all of the vacuum lines on the SR20DET were accurately connected. Small stuff but I have not been positive that it was completed properly. I have put off an accurate setup for too long. While I read tons about this on SR20-forum, I went to my buddy Will at PZ Tuning for the expert's touch. After all, if you miss the small stuff it may damage your car.

Our government connection West Virginia Legislator Delegate Gary Howell sent us these pictures today. Apparently Gary was eating at a Chick-Fil-A and noticed that a disguised vehicle was sitting in the parking lot. He managed to snap a few pictures before the car's driver sped off in it. If you look close you can see his reflection in the glass! We think that the heavily disguised vehicle is the new 2016 Camaro. In fact, we're just about sure it is.

With winter finally departing, for most of us car guys, that means racing season is back! F1 and Moto GP will soon get back on track and local time-attack and racing series kick-off their season as well.
