Over the course of Team Hybrid’s 22+ years in existence, President James Lin and his team have built an empire that shows no signs of stopping. Based on a foundation of passion, loyalty and a serious knack for building first-class vehicles, Team Hybrid is still turning heads and sweeping awards everywhere they go.
There are a few different reasons your engine might make a knocking, ticking or pinging noise. Let’s break each down and talk about what might be happening.
Memorial Day weekend is upon us, signaling the unofficial launch of summer and drawing out the masses in search of ways to enjoy it. While camping and traveling are staples, car shows are also near the top of the list as ways of bringing nostalgic fun for all ages no matter the locale.
We here at AMSOIL are all about increased power and performance in any vehicle, and diesels offer one of the best proving grounds to meet this goal. Enthusiasts in this realm stop at nothing to generate maximum horsepower and torque, and the Diesel Power Challenge is one event where they can flex their diesel-fueled muscles
Be prepared to be schooled, race fans. I have a little lesson in technology for you. In today’s age, we all rely heavily on technology in our daily lives. I, for one, would be dead in the water if I didn’t have my phone, iPad and GPS watch (or maybe just lost without the last one).
Have you ever seen a turbodiesel pickup roll onto a dyno and put down 3,311 ft-lbs of torque? Yeah, right. Impossible. Au contraire, my friend. Shawn Baca did just that at this year’s Ultimate Callout Challenge, which took place last month outside Indianapolis. How about an 8.63-second ¼-mile rip down the drag strip? No way!
Back in March, news hit that the Trump administration was considering reevaluating the corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards that mandate fleet-wide fuel economy of 54.5 mpg by 2025.
When the GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda rig rolls into Las Vegas this weekend for the Monster Energy Supercross finale, desert heat will be in true form, with temperatures projected to be near 100ºF (good thing the team uses AMSOIL!).
As engine operating conditions grow more severe, so do the demands placed on your motor oil. New engine hardware such as turbochargers, direct injection and variable valve timing (VVT) place increased stress on your engine oil.
Motorcycles occupy a prominent place in our national lore. The V-twin engine, one can argue, belongs in our menagerie of quintessentially “American” items, right next to the bald eagle, the Liberty Bell and Abe Lincoln’s stovepipe hat.
