There's just something invigorating about the smell of race gas in the morning, the smoke produced by tires screeching, and the high pitched wail of a high horsepower engine going all out. And while I'd love to be on track owning that racket, I am just as excited to be covering it from behind a camera. From Formula Drift at Road Atlanta to 24 Hours of Nurburgring, my lame attempts at photography ("needs more blur"- thanks Jeff!) have taken me places I couldn't have dreamt about being so close to the action. And at the end of the day when I'm covered in rubber, drenched in either sweat or God's tears, and have claw hand from holding the camera grip for hours, I still have a smile on my sunburnt face.

You might have read our previous articles on how easy it is to set up the AEM Infinity EMS on the BMW M3 with great results in the heat of competition. Well the AEM Infinity is not just for BMW's, it works great on just about anything and we would now like to show you just how easy it is to set up on a Honda S2000.

It's been quite a while since I had the time to write my supposedly "monthly" column. Since we started MotoIQ In 2010 it's been a wild ride which has taken us around the world and on all sorts of adventures. I have been super busy as well. My normal day job here at MotoIQ is a pretty full time gig but I also do engineering consulting for several key OEM and aftermarket clients as well as several private motorsports ventures. Perhaps my biggest outside of MotoIQ job is doing chassis engineering for Falken Motorsports' Formula D team.

When last we left off, Project 240SX LSR was under the knife again, in the midst of an entire electrical system and engine management revamp. In this update, we'll continue to follow 5523 Motorsports, Specialty Car, and the rag tag Team MotoIQ as they continue the build with parts from AEM, Fastbrakes, and Earl's Performance Products.

Everyone "knows" that rod-ends and spherical bearings are best for handling, but do you know why that is? And those rock-hard bearings totall suck on the street, right? Well, maybe not... Project Mustang 5.0 tests out some of BMR Suspension's components and learns a bit about the streetability and performance of spherical bearings in the process!

After Round 3 in Miami, Chris Forsberg in the Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z and Vaughn Gitten Jr in the Monster Energy / Nitto Tire Ford Mustang continued trading podium reigns with comfortable leads over the rest of the field. Would another competitor be able to crack the code and land the top spot? MotoIQ brings the action to you! And yeah, there's also plenty of photos of flying wheels, fires, and bumper cars.

When deciding the best way to power Daren McNamara's Formula D S14, Team Falken decided to plow into new territory with not just a turbo, but a turbo V8. Not your typical Chevy LS V8 either, but a blast from the past old school Small Block Chevy. In our last edition of building the ultimate Small Bock Chevy, we looked into the developments that had been made to the venerable 60 year old design to update it to modern standards, particularly the bottom end. In short, the improvements were mostly moving the cam upward to allow for more stroke and to shorten the pushrods for less flex, and a general beefing up of the lower end architecture to support today's power levels.

Autocross is rather unique in the motorsports world, in that you can have different drivers competing in the same exact car at the same event. It’s a great test of how good of a driver you are against a real, live benchmark. Competitors can also share cars to save money, warm tires or just have fun. Co-driving an unfamiliar can teach you a lot about the sport and how to learn a new course quickly, but it also can be a great way to take a car for a test drive before you commit your cash to a project. Learn from the experts on how to make the most of your co-drive and learn a new car quickly!

Today we bring you a very special Flashback Friday to Part 1 of Project Miatabusa. Why would we do this you ask? It must be because Part 17 is just around the corner! So for those who aren't familiar with the project here's a chance to start at the beginning. For those who are already familiar here's a chance to stroll down memory lane and get excited for the next installment.
