Ok guys here comes the story. I used to be an admin of mazdaspeed 3 owners group on facebook. I am no longer, but that's a different story for another day. Well one of the members was asking about clutch and flywheel options. I told them that I just bought a Luk clutch kit off of amazon for $181 and a Fidanza Flywheel from Edge autosport for $335 all shipped for free and how this was the best deal. Well XTR nate is an admin at mazdaspeed owners group on facebook (confusing as fuck I know) and a few minutes later I received these PM's from him on facebook ... [Read More]

Corksport Brakes Pads - Mazdaspeed 3
May 11, 2013 - 4:17 PM - by Haltech

For anyone who has owned a Gen 1 or Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3 for any amount of time who enjoys spirited street driving will tell you, the stock brakes can fade quickly and give you an E ticket ride. Although our cars come OEM with top rate Ferodo compound, our floating single piston calipers do not properly apply pad pressure to the rotor. We also see a lot of fade when you push the car hard with increased braking.

Ferodos OEM compound is not as aggressive... [Read More]

JBR Motor Mounts
Mar 04, 2012 - 10:41 PM - by Sacrilicious
Introduction

James Barone Racing is a relatively new name to the Mazda aftermarket. Jamie has been making quality products for the Mazda market since September 2009. Today, we will be reviewing a full set of his 80a durometer motor mounts for the Mazdaspeed 3 (Gen 1 and Gen 2). Since there has already been a MSF review done on the CP-E mounts, this review will only have limited coverage of the installation process. In addition to the installation tutorial in the existing MSF review, very thorough instructions are available here at the JBR... [Read More]

DeLorean DMC-12 illustrates how a good idea goes bad with Xcar
Oct 20, 2014 - 5:10 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, MISC



When John Z. DeLorean set out to build a car, he had good intentions - it'd be small, efficient, sporty, affordable and safe, complete with a rust-free, stainless-steel body. The outcome, though, was a lamentable mess, a coupe whose prestige rests more with its gullwing doors and its star-making role in Back To The Future than in its actual driving character.

Among the many knocks on the DeLorean DMC-12 was its shoddy quality (courtesy of its Northern Ireland factory), its anemic 2.8-liter V6 and an automatic transmission whose shifts registered on the geologic scale. The suspension was overly soft, the steering numb and the brakes left a lot to be desired.

None of that, as Xcar explains, really matters. The DeLorean is still a deeply cool car. Take a look at the latest video from the video outfit to see why.Continue reading DeLorean DMC-12 illustrates how a good idea goes bad with Xcar

What you missed on 10.20.14

2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster

The V12 Vantage S is indeed the shining star in Aston Martin's lineup these days, what with its screaming V12 engine and 565 horsepower on tap. Now, Aston has given its S treatment to the V12 Vantage roadster, making it the most powerful, quickest-accelerating, and fastest production roadster money can buy. Michael Harley takes one for a quick spin in Palm Springs, here.




Translogic: Detroit's bike culture

It may be the Motor City, but there's a huge subculture of two-wheeled enthusiasts living in and around Detroit these days. In the latest episode of Translogic, host Jonathon Buckley takes a look at a few of the cool things happening for bike enthusiasts in The D, including a tour of Detroit Bikes, a ride through the Slow Roll, and a cruise with the East Side Riders.





Man arrested for doing donuts in '68 Camaro

There's the old stereotype that cops love donuts, but that isn't completely true. Doughy treats aside, burning rubber might be a whole lot of fun for drivers and passengers alike, but to law enforcement, it's a big no-no. Take this story, for instance, where a man was arrested for doing donuts in his 1968 Camaro with his son. That said, it all took place in the parking lot next to a town hall and sheriff's office. Watch the video report and let us know what you think.

Video proof that LaFerrari has a pure electric mode
Oct 20, 2014 - 4:00 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Videos, Ferrari, Racing



Typically, a hybrid car, with its gas engine and an electric motor/battery pack is able to run on both forms of propulsion independently of each other. That means you can sip gas, run on pure electricity or some variation there of. The Ferrari LaFerrari is not like other hybrids.

See, the successor to the Enzo has batteries, an electric motor and a great, thumping V12 engine, but unlike its rivals from McLaren and Porsche, it has no standalone electric mode. That's been Ferrari's party line since day one. But have the Italians been exaggerating a bit? Judging by this video, it seems like a real possibility.

The video comes from what we're guessing is a European track day. It shows a black LaFerrari stealthily sailing through a tunnel on pure electric power, which it shouldn't be able to do, before its 789-horsepower V12 fires to life.

So, what does this tell us? Well, it's quite obvious that you can drive a LaFerrari on nothing but electric power. As for why Ferrari doesn't advertise this fact, we're inclined to agree with the folks at Jalopnik, who uncovered the video. It's more than likely that the hypercar's EV range is so pitifully low that Maranello doesn't see it as worth mentioning.

What do you think? Does an EV mode for a 949-horsepower, 205-mph hypercar even matter? Should Ferrari include it as an actual, driver-accessible item, even if the range is low? Have your say in Comments.Continue reading Video proof that LaFerrari has a pure electric mode

Audi reveals new TT spec racer
Oct 20, 2014 - 4:00 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Europe, Audi, Racing



We've seen the coupe. We've seen the convertible. We're still waiting on word of the next variant, but before it arrives, Audi has revealed the racing version of the new TT.

Set to form the backbone of the inaugural Audi Sport TT Cup, the competition-spec sports coupe is closely based on the production version packs the same 2.0-liter turbo four and six-speed dual-clutch transmission as the road-going TTS, delivering the same 310 horsepower, but with a push-to-pass boost of an extra 30 hp.

It's also got an active differential, and while the full specifications have not yet been revealed, it's clear that Audi has also outfitted the TT racer with more aggressive aero, track-spec rolling stock and a stripped-out cockpit (complete with the Audi PS1 Safety Seat from the R8 LMS Ultra) to get weight down to from 2,700 pounds in stock production form to 2,480.

The Audi Sport TT Cup will kick off next season in Germany as a support series to the DTM championship with a grid of 24 cars - including 18 permanent spots and six reserved for a changing roster of guest drivers. Aspiring racers will be coached by former DTM and endurance driver Markus Winkelhock and the trophy winner will get a shot at a GT3 race seat.Continue reading Audi reveals new TT spec racer
