LS Power: Manna for those who understand hot rods

LS Power: Manna for those who understand hot rods

Compliments of Maximum Drive magazine. Transforming the hot rod from the pristine simplicity of a small-block Chevrolet power unit to the sophistication of the LS presented numerous complications. Nonetheless, it was this auspicious backdrop that spurred the dramatic introduction of the SPS LS kits that overcame many of the hurdles that inhibited the hot rodder. When John Tucker’s company, SPS Engines, began offering LS conversion kits for hot rods in 1999, it was a career-changing act. Now in his 67th year, if his life has a theme beyond developing innovative hot-rod kits and simplifying their installation, it is his penchant for problem solving.

First big Historics event at Barber

First big Historics event at Barber

By Freddie Heaney: Birmingham, Alabama: Barber Motorsports Park hosted their first annual Historic motorsports three-day event May 15-17, 2015. And if they do for Historic road racing cars what they did for vintage motorcycles, they’ll have 80,000 attendees in 10 years’ time. To view these rare Historics click here. Though the premiere event weekend, which was organized by the Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA), attracted modest numbers of vintage racecars, around 70, it was an excellent first step. The sights, sounds and speeds, particularly of rare Formula One cars from the nineteen-sixties, -seventies and -eighties were glorious. Like Barber’s annual motorcycle Vintage Festival, held each October, a treasure trove of nostalgia was spread before us, all very accessible, informal and agreeable. Located in Leeds to the east of Birmingham and a short distance off I-20, which is the main thoroughfare from Atlanta to Birmingham, Barber Motorsports Park is situated in a unique 740-acre parkland setting. Surrounding the race track a two-lane asphalt ring-road accommodates a tram service that transports visitors to all areas of interest. The centerpiece of the weekend was the 16-race program and the featured marque was Lotus—well-known to George Barber with over fifty vintage machines of his own residing in the museum, adjacent to the track at Turn Nine. Eddie Lawson, a former 4-time 500cc World motorcycle champion and now driving the 1977 Wolf WR4 of Canadian, Maurice McCaig, set the standard. Fastest in qualifying, he won both of the weekend’s F1 races. On Friday’s qualifying sessions Lawson was followed by James Hagan in a 1983 Tyrrell 001 (in full Benetton livery) and Doc Bundy in...

Opening the car from afar: a neat trick

By Martha Maglone: The wave length of the electronic car key is limited to a certain distance. But here is a remarkable trick if you wanted to expand its range significantly—particularly handy when your car is parked among hundreds of others in a field at a race meet and you cannot find it!
