People you should know: Matt Dennison

On thing I’ve been meaning to do for a long time is feature people from the motorsports world who I arbitrarily decide deserve extra attention. Matt Dennison, who I’ve known for a couple years now, is one such person. Matt has a pretty cool evo that he uses to drive the kids to school and […]

The GST L is back. And it’s BAD

Mike from GST just posted a photoshoot of the new 2011 car. Highlights include a chopped top, some revised aero, weight loss, and a slight drivetrain relocation. To top it off, rumors have it this L is taking the trip to Australia later this year to compete at the World Time Attack, and in the […]

FXMD NSX at Superlap

Here’s the Factor X Motorsports Development NSX running an 1:41.9 at Buttonwillow CW13: They’d go much faster on their usual Yokohama slicks, and perhaps also quicker on Hankook C91s. They made an attempt later in the day when the track was slower on the C91s and said they were on a faster pace when a […]

FXMD NSX up close and personal

I’ve gotten to know the Factor X guys this year, and I can’t help but be impressed. FXMD consists of about 5 guys working in a glorified storage unit while teams like Sierra Sierra have professional racing backgrounds and multi-million dollar budgets, yet the Factor X NSX manages to be the fastest Time Attack car […]


The guys over at Factor X Motorsports in Las Vegas have made some big changes to the car for this season. I was out there at the last time attack and they were all very great to hang out with and incredibly hospitable, as they allowed us the use of their shop to fix out […]

Robispec Time Attack EVO part 2

A few weeks ago I posted about a nearly complete evo race car. Well, here’s the rest of it. Installing the body kit: Giant wing: dash ready to go in the car: We also removed the ignition switch and a pile of wiring from the car, so I made a nifty little remote start button […]

Robispec Time Attack EVO IX

Wow it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. Partially because I was out of town for a few weeks. And then after that I was pretty busy working on some race cars. One is this evo 9 that is soon to be a modified class time attack car: On the power side the […]

Mode Racing Genesis

If you haven’t heard of Billy Brooks, then you don’t get out much. He’s practically a celebrity, and even owns the domain iknowbillybrooks.com. Anyway, he happens to have a hyundai genesis time attack car that makes it out to the shop fairly often. Tonight we put some stickers on it: As you can see it […]

Turn in Concepts STi

The guys over at Turn in Concepts are sponsoring a few redline time attack street class cars this year. One of them happens to have placed first at both Chicago and Tennessee (although they don’t get quite as many street class entries as we do out here), and I came to noticeĀ  a very cool […]

RobiSpec 08 STi

The other day I was doing a little work on Robi’s 08 STi. By a little work I mostly mean driving everyone to lunch and standing around, but hey, I built some of the rest of the car and kept the shop open until 2:30am so we could finish it. The basics of the car […]
