Project Gen 3 STi: Suspension upgrade with M7
by Wes Dumalski
When last we left off with Project Gen 3 STi we were enjoying the power and up to this point the only modifications we had done so far were to make the car go faster. It was time to change that as the GR STi is a bit soft around the middle. Our friends at M7 came to our rescue with their Super Street Performance Coilover setup. We were eager to put this new suspension through its paces to see what type of performance it really offered so step inside and read all about it.
Global Time Attack - Round 1 - Road Atlanta

Attacking time is a funny thing… All sorts of things happen during these 2 day race weekends and no one knows what mother nature or Newton has in store for us. This past weekend at Road Atlanta both of these personas had a chance to show us who's boss and utterly prove that we are in control of very little. In this case the Saturday forecast brought likely promises of rain and when the teams hit the track to sunny skies they were in a fury to set down fast laps as no one knew (not even the weather people; do they ever?) what would unfold. As luck would have it the rain held off and as teams pushed ever further it was Newton who would prevail on this day. Through 11 wins in a row and numerous track records the Professional Awesome EVO VII would turn its last laps in anger, its life cut short by Road Atlanta.

Project 240SX Land Speed Racer: Flat Out on the Bonneville Salt Flats (Video)
By Chuck Johnson
It’s really easy for people to discredit going fast in a straight line. Hell, I myself have been guilty of snickering at the thought of "run what you brung" night at the drag races. I mean how much skill could it really take to hold a steering wheel straight and mash on the throttle for a ¼ mile? The truth is though, it doesn’t matter if it’s driving in a straight line or around the same damn circle for hours. Click on the link to see the in-car video!

Evolution Dynamics Pikes Peak Edition Evo
By Sarah Forst & Wes Dumalski
F1 race car driver Stirling Moss once said "To achieve anything in this game, you must prepare to dabble in the boundary of disaster." Of course, he also broke both ankles and chipped four vertebrae after falling three stories down an elevator shaft a few years back so accidents can happen to anyone...
But how do you prepare for a floor routine that involves 14 somersaults 100 feet down a 45 degree abyss polluted with boulders? They don't call Turn 16 of the Pike's Peak course "Devil's Playground" for nothing. 12,500 feet up the side of the summit - just 1500 feet shy of the finish line - the corner features a steep unprotected cliff. Perhaps the asphalt leading up to the turn should be nicknamed Skidmark Alley.
Global Time Attack Round 5 - Texas Edition
By Wes Dumalski
"Everything is bigger in Texas!" At least that's what they say... When I stepped off the plane my first destination was the bathroom. I unzipped with nervousness and as I relieved myself I realized that so far, the above cliche was completely untrue. After leaving the facilities with my head hung in shame I realized that something WAS bigger in Texas... The ASS whooping that Global Time Attack was going to deliver to the infield course at Texas Motor Speedway!
VIDEO: Rhys Millen Pikes Peak 2012 World Record FULL CLIMB
2012 marks the first time in history that the historic Pikes Peak hillclimb has been done on a fully paved course. This marks a new era in the event with new records. It was not a surprise to us that Formula D ace Rhys Millen set the new record for an assault at the peak. We were surprised that his car of choice was not his high tech PM580 race car built specifically for the mountain but his Formula D Hyundai Genesis!
