Simplicity never goes out of style, and in GT Channel’s case, their Scion FR-S build for the Scion Tuner Challenge 2014 is just that. Staying true to the “tuner car” definition, this isn’t a full-out race car but one that’s fast and can be driven on a daily basis
No matter how careful you are, you will do it eventually. We have done it plenty of times. Modern high performance cars now almost always come with low airdams which make a big difference aerodynamically. This means that you have probably hit them on the ground and damaged them on speed bumps, driveways and parking lots no matter how anal you are.

Houghton, MI (October 21, 2014) -- Subaru Rally Team USA's David Higgins and Craig Drew outlasted the competition and the wet stage conditions to take victory at the Lake Superior Performance Rally (LSPR) on October 17-18, 2014 in Houghton, MI.
If you've ever had the yellow EML light come on, it usually has to do with the drive-by-wire system. In Project E46 M3's case, every time it came on, it would stall the car and render it useless unless you knew what to do to reset it. Check out what we did to get the car running tip-top again.

A couple of
annoying sharp eyes on our last update a few weeks ago revealed that we had some KW suspension bits on our RX-7, so we've been forced to get off our lazy butts and write about them, some SuperPro bushings and a bunch of Improved Racing suspension goodies we put on as well in our attempt to make Project V8 RX-7 not only corner as well as it goes straight, but also remain tolerable and civil for daily driving.

Wanna watch video of Mike geeking out over suspension on the GTChannel/MotoIQ Scion SEMA Tuner Challenge FR-S? Silly Question. Of course you do! Click inside for Episode 1 from GTChannel where Mike details the selection rationale for the parts placed on the car.
Sometimes the best roadtrips arise from happy accidents. Maybe “accident” is the wrong word choice when talking about a drive in a car, but nonetheless, random happenings make for the best trips. One such bit of randomness got me on the best roads in the country with a set of tires that needed to be worn out before they were thrown away.
The US-spec E36 M3 not only falls short in the powertrain department to its 321hp European counterpart, but also in terms of its headlight output, looks, and quality. We replace the old, low output US-spec factory headlights with a set of European style Depot Euro Ellipsoid projector headlights from European Auto Source and add HID ballasts to give our E36 a 21st century output and looks.

With day one of competition in the books, it was now time for the final showdown to commence at Sydney Motorsports Park. Scorch Racing was at the top of the Pro Class leaderboard, with MCA and Tilton nipping at their heels less than a second behind. And who could have predicted that a Pro-Am car would be at the top of the overall rankings!? PMQ Racing's Evo blistering time of 1:25.27 was the talk of the paddock at the end of Friday's competition schedule and fans and teams alike we're anxious to witness what would happen on the final day of the 2014 World Time Attack Challenge.
The World Time Attack Challenge has come a long way since its initial running back in 2008 when it was simply an Australian time attack event. WTAC has grown from a national event to one of the most anticipated time attack events in the world. The formula has been a very simple one, provide a venue and the means for the fastest time attack machines in the world to compete while giving fans a wide variety of motorsport related activities to enjoy. The level of competition at WTAC is on a completely different level than we're used to seeing in the states. Couple that with an extremely passionate fan base and there is no surprise why the WTAC has earned a permanent spot in our event calendar.
