Do you find that you're addicted to the thrill and speed of driving fast, but don't know the first thing about what's actually going on under the hood? Do you want to know more about what's happening without having to attend Auto Shop 101? Are you intimidated by the tech at your local performance shop because he's always trying to sell you blinker fluid, muffler bearings and other parts that you're not sure even exist? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this is where you need to start. We'll tell you all about the noisy chunk of metal connected to your wheels and a little bit about the things that make it go forward.
Last week we gave you a behind the scenes look at the magic SLVA was conjuring up with the creation of the wide-body for our BRZ. In this installment, we change our focus to the drivetrain build as we’ve had lots of inquiries into what will motivate this beast.
And we’re back! Though Mother Nature didn’t cooperate for TX2K14, it didn’t dampen our spirits because we knew back home some good things were happening with Project BRZ. We’re back into the mix with our weekly documentary of the progress. To bring you up to speed, the engine is off to the machine shop where they can work their magic and we’re waiting on the remainder of the build’s components to arrive, including the widebody parts that we just finished up sourcing.
In this installment we crack open the box of our new Air Lift Performance Digital Combo Kit suspension and let you know what we found, compare and contrast to the stock suspension, and provide an initial assessment.
Budget performance cars are a critical part of the mod life. They’re an affordable option for young enthusiasts just entering the market—and many times, drivers develop lifetime allegiances to the makes or models that they start with. Luckily for you, many automakers are focusing on affordable performance in 2015. So Revvolution decided to put together a list of this model year’s fastest entry-level performance cars. The criteria were simple: under $35,000, over 200 horsepower, zero to 60 times under 6 seconds and quarter-mile times under 14 seconds.
If you're anything like me, you've looked up at multistory garages with their corkscrew ramps and thought about what they might be like echoing with the sound of horsepower and choked with tire smoke. If you're anything like the guy in this video, you thought that, remembered you had a hot-rodded little BMW 3-Series, some cameras, a buddy with a chase car and a couple of free minutes to drift it... without bothering to close it down.
