Polystrand GT-Lite CRX: Part 2 - Designing an Independent Rear Suspension From Scratch & A Composites Primer

by Jonathan Spiegel

When we last left off, the GT-Lite Project CRX was being loaded onto the big orange transporter and headed to the Detroit area and into the capable hands of SANLUIS Rassini. We’re about to take a trip into a place where absolute state-of-the-art hardware and software is used daily in the design and development of suspension systems used worldwide by most of the major OEMs.


 

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.

by Justin Banner 

It’s November and that means it’s time for the great debates on who’s fastest around Buttonwillow to be confirmed with the grand finale.

Drivers gave it their all, cars put down their best times, and there were teams who were heartbroken or elated. So, who would take the fastest time around the track and who would burn out this year?

Killer Conquest - LS Powered Conquest Starion 

by Mike Kojima

We are starting a new feature at MotoIQ called "The Alley". The Alley is our ultimate photo location area, which also happens to be the alley behind the palatial and luxurious MotoIQ Megashop. With its mix of legit urban backdrops, great lighting and convenient location, it's perfect for our lazy ass photographers! The Alley moniker will be used when we feature street builds that we would be proud to drive ourselves.

When I first saw John Lazorack's 1988 Conquest TSi at the Japanese Classic Car show, I immediately did a double take and backtracked to get a closer look.  You see I have always had a soft spot in my heart for these cars after having wanted one really badly when I was a young man.  Well not a Conquest but but its badge engineered sibling, the Mitsubishi Starion ESi-R.

by Sarah Forst

The 2014 Global Rally Cross season wraps up for the 3rd consecutive year in Las Vegas, but at the Linq Hotel and Casino for the first time. The Strip's reputation for being flashy and over-the-top could only be upstaged by one of the most exciting finales in Red Bull GRC history.  Four drivers were vying for the top of the podium in the Supercar title- Joni Wiman, Ken Block, Nelson Piquet Jr., and Scott Speed.


 

Driver Development Title

DRIVER DEVELOPMENT: Learning Processes

by Billy Johnson

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right?  Well not necessarily.  Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits.  So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect.  In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.


 

Sneak Peek: BAC Mono at Sector 111

by Khiem Dinh

Those crazy blokes from England have a knack for making ‘streetable’ track cars. Caterhams, Ariel Atoms, and Radicals come to mind. Sure, they really really stretch the definition of streetable, but they can be equipped with head lights, brake lights, turn signals, and mirrors. One of the latest cars designed across the pond is the BAC Mono and it’s even more extreme than the others.


 



AEM Infinity EMS: The Power to Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control

by Chuck Johnson

When it comes to building cars, I've always tried to maintain a "keep it simple, stupid" approach. At the center of my dead reliable formula was my factory re-flashed ECU. When I decided to get serious about land speed racing, along with that came an exponentially growing need for more capability. I reluctantly dug my heels in denial, touting my "keep it simple stupid" argument. Ironically, that very argument was what would convince me to finally make the change to a standalone ECU. It comes down to this one question. Is a race car running a re-flashed ECU in tandem with a plethora of standalone systems for boost control, wide band sensors, variable valve lift, and data logging really simple? No. Enter the AEM Infinity 8 EMS.
