Mighty Car Mods Nationals 2016 - Motorkhana

MOTORKHANA The Motorkhana at the MCM Nationals is designed for anyone and everyone to have a go, try some grass roots motorsports and have some fun. It's a race around a set course against the clock, if you get the fastest time on the day, you win. We'll be using a designated area at Sydney Dragway with a course laid out for maximum car shenanigans. You can do it in any car and don't need any special equipment. A Motorkhana is a great way to test the all round performance of your car because good power, brakes, handling and driving..  - Read More

Auto Headlight Off Diagram

The basic idea? Intercept the wire that activates the headlights. Most modern cars have relays closer to the battery that send the power directly from the battery to the lights, and the signal wire comes down from the switch. The little white rectangle with the strike through it is important, thats the coil. Its the circuit that you can activate with a small current, which magnetically pulls the switch for the large current. Once you get your head around the way that works, there are a number of ways you can use relays. Another good tip is, if you have..  - Read More

Big skids are better skids.. especially in Supergramps

Mechanical Stig and I were discussing Subaru's on Saturday morning and he mentioned the WRX club were doing a skid pan event the following day. I checked my calendar and after confirming i had no important jobs that required a practical wagon, I signed up. Like most motorsport, it started early - so i dragged myself out of bed and headed down to Sydney Motorsport Park. It's spring in the southern hemisphere so it's sunny but the air is cold, and after half an hour or so, the concrete surface is wet and ready to go. Drivers briefing involves handing..  - Read More

Dissecting Supergramps

The Gramps and Supergramps builds have been an epic journey, one that now feels a bit more finished as the car is painted, looks mad, drives well and is an awesome all rounder daily. For me this has definitely been a car that's used the best of what i've learned over the years about Subaru's. It seems to be a common theme that people, for whatever reason, find a make or model of car that suits what they do and who they are. For me, a wagon was the best compromise of a car I could live with but also..  - Read More

Changing to stay the same

Some people have said that MCM has changed over the years. Thank goodness for that! It’s been almost 8 years of doing this crazy YouTube car thing. If you’re 28 years old now, think back to what you were doing when you were 20 years old. If you’re 20, try and remember what you were doing when you were 12. If you’re 12, try and think back to when you were 4. If you’re not changing in 8 years then there’s something wrong… But here’s the funny thing with change - sometimes you bring about the change yourself, other times..  - Read More


  We got an awesome response to our video of racing Super gramps and Mod Max at Sydney Speedway recently. It happened by luck that a friend of MOOG's invited us down the day before they were due to resurface their track for the upcoming race season. We knew MOD MAX would be a lot of fun on dirt and clay so loaded up a trailer and took it down there. We got so busy running down mannequins in the finale to our Build Series of MOD MAX, that we decided a proper car review of the V8 Silvia was..  - Read More
