Posted by Chris Tropea on June 9, 2021, noon

You don’t need to buy a magical elixir or make a sacrifice to the car gods to get that tire shine to last longer. All you need to do is make sure you wash those tires the right way before you dress them.

Not sure what the right way is? Don’t worry, we got detailing pro Tim McNair of Grand Prix Concours to show us. Presented by CRC Industries.

Can you still have fun even though you are in the slowest car in the race? If team Ollis Garage and its 165-horsepower Dacia Logan is anything to go by, the answer looks to be a resounding yes.

Sure, it may take more than 12 minutes to complete a lap, but racing at the Nürburgring 24 Hours is an experience unlike many others.

Posted by Chris Tropea on June 3, 2021, 7:59 a.m.

Even if you’ve dialed in camber, caster, toe, ride height, spring rates and every other suspension parameter, all that work could become moot if you don’t properly set your tire pressures.

[Learn how we built this V8-powered Nissan 350Z.]

So how do you correctly set those pressures? We’ll let championship driver, race engineer and resident tire tester Andy Hollis explain how, but you should get yourself a timer, a pyrometer and a skidpad. Presented by CRC Industries.

Posted by Chris Tropea on June 1, 2021, 3:46 p.m.

Chances are your project car has rack-and-pinion steering. And, at some point, you might need to rebuild it. We won’t blame you if it sounds intimidating, but it’s easier to do than you might think.

Here’s our guide to rebuilding a steering rack, and it should apply to virtually any car fitted with rack and pinion steering–whether it’s a classic like our 1960 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite or something more recent–since the technology hasn’t really changed since is advent.

When’s the last time you saw a Dodge Viper ACR and a Ford Anglia run in the same event?

That’s what went down at the 2021 Targa Tasmania, an event inspired by the Targa Florio and run every year on the Australian island of Tasmania since 1992.

Check out the highlight reel from this year’s event—what’s your favorite and what car would you run? 

Honda NSX vs. Ferrari Testarossa: The ultimate ‘90s supercar battle? | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on May 26, 2021, 8 a.m.

Although the NSX proved to the world that Japan could make a proper modern supercar, could it outrun one of the fastest of the era, the Ferrari Testarossa?

We won’t spoil the video, but it comes out to be a closer race than you might think.

A Fastback Mustang, a Jaguar XJS and a familiar-looking car chase | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on May 25, 2021, noon

If this chase scene looks familiar, it should. Starring Steve McQueen’s son, Chad McQueen, the 1995 movie "Red Line" is about a man who is forced to steal cars after he steals one to commit a robbery. It also features this scene that pays homage to that iconic chase from Bullitt.

If nothing else, it’s probably one of the few times you’ll see a Jaguar XJS get into a car chase.

Do the Racelogic VBOX Video HD2’s high-tech features give you an advantage on track? | Video
Posted by Chris Tropea on May 24, 2021, 8:20 a.m.

Racelogic’s VBOX Video HD2 logger has a lot going for it: broadcast-quality video streams, real-time synchronized data and self-configuring lap timing that uses GPS data to recognize what track you're driving.

The big question, though: Does all that tech give you an advantage on track? We test the VBOX in our 1991 MR2 project car to find out. Presented by CRC Industries.

There’s something oddly soothing about watching this 14cc engine get built | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on May 23, 2021, 9:01 a.m.

The original Mini first made do with an 848cc engine, but even that has nothing on this 14cc unit.

Even though this tiny four-stroke engine is designed for use in model planes, cars and even ships, it’s a genuine water-cooled engine complete with individual throttle bodies and a radiator. If you ask us, we’d say it even sounds like a miniature Toyota 4A-GE.
