480WHP Honeywell Garrett Powered F20C: Devin Giles' Time Attack S2000

by Khiem Dinh

It all starts the same way. “I want to go auto-crossing!” you say. So, you start browsing the interwebs and research the S2000. You start auto-crossing and start modding and moving through the classes. Then, you do a track day. Then, you mod the car some more. Then, you do time attack. Then, you end up with a highly built race car like Devin Giles- owner and driver of this fast S2000. It’s a familiar path; there’s probably a support group for it out there.


 

Project Unpimp My Ride: Pedders Easyfit Suspension and Swaybars, Street Performance for the Toyota86/BRZ/FR-S

by Mike Kojima

Not all of us want a race car for the street. Although many of us are hardcore track day participants, autocrossers or canyon runner nuts, there are a lot of enthusiasts who don't want a super edgy race car with a license plate as a commuter or daily driver.  


 

LA Auto Show 2017: Nerd’s Eye View – Porsche

by Khiem Dinh

I was short on time this year at the LA Auto Show, so I had to do a bit of a blitzkrieg. The one booth I have to visit every year is Porsche because the cars are simply awesome. In addition to the GT2RS, Porsche was highlighting the Cayman and Boxster GTS siblings, 911 Carrera T, and a few 4-door sedans. I got sucked into the GT2RS and almost completely ignored all the other cars. 


 

Project Vehicross Part 8: Pinion Angle 101

by David Zipf

It’s been awhile since we’ve done anything with our funky Isuzu project. There’s a simple reason for that: I was planning to replace it with a Mazdaspeed 3 (in 2016) and have a fun, practical, and incognito hatchback to replace the fun, tough, and weird Isuzu. Due to a series of unfortunate events (some relating to a lazy previous owner, and some relating to unfortunate shortcomings in Mazda’s quality), we decided to offload our 3 and keep the Isuzu. That meant dealing with some of the issues we’d been ignoring for months while we fussed with the Mazda.


 

Project Corvette Stingray C7 Z51: Body Modification

by Mike Kojima

Typically aftermarket aero parts are lame; they don't fit and have gaps. They require you to drill holes in your body panels for sheet metal screws. The carbon deteriorates in the sun and gets cloudy. Not so for these Chevrolet Performance offerings. They fit perfectly and are built to the same OEM durability standards as the car!

Honda S1000: How To Install A Motorcycle Engine in a Car

by Matt Brown

It is well established that:  Small Car + Big Engine = Hot Rod. The bigger the engine and the smaller the recipient vehicle, the hotter the rod. Putting a 1.8 liter in your Honda CRX? Mild hot rod. Putting a Space Shuttle SRB in your Peel P50? The hottest of rods. Installing a motorcycle engine in a car seems to be a violation of this rule. I hope you will agree with me after reading this article: it is anything but.


 

Building an FA20 Race Engine for Michele Abbate: Part 1- Planning the Internals

by Mike Kojima

We have known Michele Abbate ever since she was a college student doing track days with her trusty Mazdaspeed Protege and have followed her career as friends as she has progressed up the ranks from recreational driver to a Scion Sponsored driver in SCCA's GT1 class. 

Up to now, Michele has been running her car with a bone stock FA20 engine at a very low boost street blower drive ratio. Although this is decent power, she needs a lot more to be competitive in one of SCCA's fastest classes for production-based cars.

All-Season Versus Winter Tires: A Racecar Driver's Consensus

Presented by Tire Rack and Michelin

by Karla Pestotnik

I think I can comfortably say that I’ve used all-season tires in almost any creative scenario that I can think of. I’ve used them on a racetrack countless times in several different cars, trying to drive as cleanly as possible with minimal grip in search of the best possible lap time for each given platform. I’ve used them as “rain tires” because that is what was available at the time and had better water dispersion than race slicks in a sprint race with down pouring rain. I’ve done some off-roading with them on trucks, SUVs and even vans, and had my fair share of times getting stuck in sand and/or mud with them (a few occasions with a trailer connected even). I have even used them for what they are generally intended for- you know, normal driving in a regular passenger car on public roads and highways. However, after attending the Winter Driving Event that Tire Rack and Michelin hosted, I can now say that I have used all-season tires in ice drag racing!

We did several comparison tests to evaluate whether or not it's worth it to buy winter tires, considering how versatile all-season tires can be. What does a racecar driver have to say about it? Click to find out!


 

"My Fiancée's" Miata: Part 8 - Whiteline Roll Bars and Track Test

by Daniel O'Donnell

In Part 6 of our ongoing Miata project, we got to spend a lovely day tracking the car and finding out its good and bad traits. One of the most glaring problems, at least from the driver’s confidence standpoint, was a massive amount of body roll in the corners. Body roll, in and of itself, isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the world, especially as our Miata is at the stock ride height. It didn’t appear that we were running out of shock travel and we didn’t notice any exaggerated or strange tire wear, confirming that the suspension was working more or less as designed. That being said, it didn’t exactly inspire confidence. The car would set into a turn and take significant time to transfer load if I had quickly change directions. To improve the dynamics of the Miata and not feel like we’d roll over and off the track, the body roll had to be rectified.
