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.

Curly's Corner: A Nerd's Eye on Formula 1 - Australian Grand Prix

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!

by Mike Kojima

So most of you probably thought that the Team America GT-R was dead, long abandoned to the scrap heap or maybe left in a pile somewhere in Australia. Not so! After a humiliating first appearance at the 2014 running of WTAC down under, the car has been under reconstruction.

Improving Dai Yoshihara's Formula Drift Engine Wear With WPC Treatment!

by Mike Kojima

The world of Pro Drifting is a brutal place for machinery. Since I started my involvement with Pro Drifting 10 years ago, I have been amazed by the appetite for parts a pro car possesses. In all of my engineering career, I have yet to be involved with a motorsport that eats more expensive stuff on a regular basis.


 

We Visit the Nitto King of The Hammers Powered by Optima Batteries! Or, the Idiot's Guide on How Not To Go Off-roading

by Mike Kojima

So we were ecstatic when Nitto Tires and Hellwig Products, makers of cool suspension stuff and supplier for several of MotoIQ's truck project suspension goodies, invited us out to the desert to spectate the Nitto King of The Hammers Powered by Optima Batteries off-road race.  Although we are newbs to the whole off-road truck thing, we know enough to have heard of the event and know that it is an extremely tough test of man and machine combining the rigors of both off-road desert racing and bolder crawling together in one event.

MotoIQ Video

We recently installed an OS Giken Super Lock limited slip differential on our Project DC2 Integra! Watch as Mike Kojima explains everything you ever wanted to know about LSD but were afraid to ask! The OS Giken Super Lock 1-way differential completely transformed our Integra, and even at a price point around $1500, it's one of the biggest bang for the buck performance modifications you can do on a front wheel drive car- especially if you take it to the track!


 

GridLife IceBattle 2018

by Connor Harrison

Are you slowly going insane from sitting in your garage staring at your car? Wishing for warmer weather so you can actually go out and do car stuff with your car friends? Just go ice racing instead; it's essentially an autocross on a frozen lake and is a nice way to keep your sanity while shredding fresh powder with your buds. Just like an autocross, these events happen all over the place, and odds are good that a local club near you is doing something pretty similar. I decided to take a break from my thoroughly half-assed attempts at getting my Sentra off of jack stands for the first time in two years to go see what GridLife IceBattle was all about.
