Nerd Alert Part 2! SKYACTIV-X: Were Our Predictions Correct?

by Karla Pestotnik

When Mazda first announced its infamous, new SKYACTIV-X engine, we made some preliminary guesses about its workings before any information was released. Guesses are guesses, but now that Mazda has released more official information about the all-new and exciting Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine, it seems that we weren’t too far off. We recently got to poke around and even test drive their ten million dollar prototypes!


 

We Visit the 2018 Tierra Del Sol Annual Safari! Or, the Experienced Idiot’s Guide on How to go Off-Roading

by Steve Rockwood

When the guys went on their rookie tour of the 2018 King of the Hammers race, I was supposed to be their tour guide. Unfortunately, due to a complete lack of comms in the valley and differing arrival times, this never panned out. When Jeff Naeyaert mentioned he was going to the Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari, I jumped at the chance to show him around my home turf.

MotoIQ Video

Last fall, we took a long look at Fredric Aasbo's Formula DRIFT Toyota Corolla iM, but he's back for the 2018 season with a brand new late model Corolla hatchback. With a new car we had to make another trip to Papadakis Racing to take a deep look inside. Once again, Mike Kojima walks around the new Corolla Hatchback with builder and team owner Stephan Papadakis. We also take a peek at Steph's shop and some of the genius stuff going on inside one of the smallest, lightest, and most powerful pound per pound powerplants in all of Formula DRIFT, the Toyota 2AR.  Come with us and see the details up close of one of the most well thought-out Formula DRIFT machines.

by MotoIQ Video

Join us on our multi-part journey to improving what is arguably the best car ever made.

In Part 3 of our series we install Whiteline bushings and SPL Parts arms, links and spherical bearings!

Basic Drift Car Chassis Setup: The S-Chassis Tension Rod

by Nikita Rushmanov

The rear tension rod is probably the most overlooked suspension arm on an s-chassis. A lot of people don’t understand how it works, and there is a lot of conflicting information on the internet to add to the confusion. Because of this, when most people get adjustable arms for the rear of their car, they just set their tension rod to the same length as factory and leave it.

Project SC300 Road Racer: Part 15 - Lay it all out

by Erik Jacobs

With the engine bay wiring all neatly tucked in, it was time to move on to the rest of the car. We bounced around here and there as it made sense. There’s quite a lot of harness in the cabin, and it should also be neatly tucked away. A large portion of the cabin wiring would be hidden behind the dashboard, but that doesn’t mean that it should not be neatly routed and secured.


 

Racewars 2018- Top Speed Racing Done the Australian Way!

by Blake Parry

Nestled in the Western Australian town of Albany, lies a runway – normally used for a quick transit to avoid the 5 hour drive from capital city Perth, or for handful of crop dusters and the local flying doctor service. Once a year, with the support of the local government and townsfolk, this airport is shut down, and transformed into what is now Australia’s only 1000m (3280ft) V-max event. This is Racewars.

Originally conceived by a group of WA locals over maybe one too many beers, Racewars is now in its 5th year, showing that a dedicated bunch of people, supported by a strong car community can achieve great things. Welcoming all comers – irrespective of vehicle type as long as it’s fast, to put man and machine to the test over 1000m of prime tarmac.

by David Zipf

It’s been five months since we got to talk Formula 1...and quite frankly, that’s five months too long. With Easter nearly on us, it’s finally time to polish up those new paint jobs, warm up the 1.6L hybrid V6s, and get racing once again. Formula 1 is back!
