Jaguar confirms small saloon – and gets the thumbs up from Number 10

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Jaguar will launch a small saloon beneath the XF in 2015, the company confirmed on the eve of the Frankfurt motor show. The baby Jag (seen testing as a disguised evaluation mule in our spy shots gallery) will be constructed from aluminium and built in the West  Midlands, creating around 1700 jobs. The news prompted a call to Jaguar from the office of Prime Minister David Cameron, offering Number 10's congratulations and support with the company's product expansion.

Art Center College of Design - Next Lunar Rover

Fri, 27 Jun 2008 00:00:00 -0700

Students in their fifth and sixth terms at Art Center College of Design created their visions for the 'Next Lunar Rovers' in a project sponsored by NASA. The design brief, which tasked students with designing the optimal lunar rover for the next moon mission, called for the designs to support the unique functional challenges of such a vehicle while inspiring everyone that sees it to want to go for a drive on the moon. The designs were also meant to serve as an icon to jumpstart interest of the public in lunar expeditions.

Honda Civic saloon, coupe at the 2011 Detroit show

Mon, 10 Jan 2011 00:00:00 -0800

Honda showed off two new Civics at the NAIAS 2011: the Civic Si Concept Coupe and the Civic Concept Saloon. They're sadly US-market only, rather than related to the European spec models, themselves up for replacement at the end of 2011. Although 'concepts', these two effectively show what will roll into US showrooms in spring 2011.  The blurb is pretty strict on the difference between the American and Euro Civics: 'The Civic Si coupe and saloon Concepts are US-only design and will not be sold in the UK.


In my continuing quest to improve my 1988 Yamaha Warrior I made two modifications.

Banshee shocks compared to a Warrior Shock
The first major change was adding two Yamaha Banshee front shocks.

As you can see in this picture, the Banshee shocks are longer than the stock Warrior shocks.

I purchased both of these of ebay after a significant amount of research into the best/easiest modification to make. Paid around $100 for both, not a bad deal when a good set of aftermarket shocks are AT LEAST 3 times that. This picture is of the bike with one shock installed.

It was a bit tricky putting these on by myself. Had to compress them down an inch or so, and that’s quite a chore by hand.

The shocks turned out to be a GREAT upgrade. The weekend before I put them on we made a trip to Red Feather, and the Warrior suspension really wore me out. Jason has an LT250R, Jeff has a Wolverine, and Jed has a Banshee. I was always well behind these guys, not just because I’m slower (actually my Warrior keeps up really well with the Wolverine), but because the bike just didn’t handle well.

Shortly after putting these one we went up the Poudre to the Green Mountain trail. Rode in the snow and had a blast. The Warrior was like a different machine, much more manageable. Worked great, right until Jeff broke a tie rod, but that’s another story…

You might also notice the new handlebars. These are YZ High bend I ordered from Rocky Mountain ATV. Nothing special, just steel bars. Figured I’d use them until I bent them, since I wasn’t sure how they would work. I’m pretty happy with them, make the bike much more comfortable to ride. I

will probably get the same bend in some aluminum bars sometime down the road.

A blast from the past By the staff of Dirt Wheels


In our minds, one of the best upgrades you can add to your Banshee is the 5.6-gallon tank from IMS. We had hours of fun without refueling.


You can’t live in sport ATV land without hearing, seeing or knowing what the infamous Yamaha Banshee is. The Banshee blasted onto the scene in 1987 and blew everyone’s mind with its two-stroke street -bike twin-cylinder engine and that signature sound that everyone loves.

It was a dominant force racing with the best quads on the track, in the dunes or across the desert. Banshees were produced from 1987 to 2006 here in the states, and some countries continued sales until 2010. One of the coolest attributes of the Banshee was that it remained largely unchanged during those years, aside from small changes like going from upper J-arm suspension to a regular upper A-arm. That consistency allowed for a raft of aftermarket parts that made the Banshee one of the most versatile ATVs ever built.

Lucky for us, we rebuilt a co-worker’s 1990 J-arm Yamaha Banshee with the help of some great aftermarket companies. It needed a lot of love after being ridden hard for many years. We were stoked for the opportunity to revive this bad machine, and here is how we did it.


Luckily, we had Streamline brakes to slow us down after this sweet wall ride. It may or may not have gotten a little sketchy on this attempt.



Like we mentioned, this ol’ girl needed a lot of attention. It was a full tear down, starting with cleaning the frame and engine. We then handed the engine to legendary Banshee engine builder Teddy Boyko of Boyko Racing. Boyko and his trusty sidekick Casey went to work rehabbing the twin cylinder. Boyko bored the cylinders and ported them to make it run better. We went with a Wiseco piston kit and ProX connecting rods. Conpetive Crank Shafts then welded and balanced the crank, which creates a truer crank and better performance. Boyko also sandblasted the engine cases and right side case. They added a fresh coat of high-temp paint to the cylinders and right side case cover. A Pro Design Cool Head with 16cc domes was added to keep the engine cooler, and the polished look is killer. Another cool product from Pro Design, the EZ-Drain, was added in case we ever wanted to drain the coolant easily. Primary Drive offers a great all-in-one sprocket and X-ring chain kit that we installed as well.


The STI tires laid down some great traction and helped avoid the wheelspin. FMF Turbinecore 2 silencers put out a great exhaust note even with spark arrestors installed.


Other performance parts we added were FMF Fatty pipes, FMF Turbinecore 2 silencers, an FMF jet kit, a full Hinson clutch kit, and a Uni Dual Stage air filter. The front end had a lot of play in the bushing, so we changed every bushings and bearing on the quad with new All Balls Racing products. The Banshee had old, beat-up shocks on it, so we added some modern Elka Stage 3 shocks to the front and a Stage 4 shock to the rear. Flexx handlebars were also added, along with Streamline lock-on grips and a Works Connection Elite clutch perch setup. The stock axle was bent and so rusted that we needed a giant hammer to remove it. We were happy to install a new DuraBlue heavy-duty axle. STI tires and polished wheels give this baby a classic look and modern traction. The front and rear brake calipers and master cylinders needed a complete rebuild, and we did that with All Balls Racing parts. Streamline wave brake rotors and pads were a much-needed upgrade. The Banshee also had an outdated stick stabilizer. We installed an 11-way stick stabilizer from Streamline. For the body parts, we went with Maier plastics, a Jettrim seat cover, TM Designworks poly skid plate, TM Designworks Slide-N-Guide chain slider kit, Alba front bumper, Alba nerf bars, a Fuel Star petcock and a 5.6-gallon IMS fuel tank for those long rides.


Boyko Racing completely overhauled the engine with Wiseco pistons and ProX connecting rods. Is there anything sweeter than a Cool Head and chrome FMF pipes?



The Banshee was finally finished, and it was time to put it through its paces. We tested it at high-desert altitudes with the FMF jet kit installed, and it ran like a top! The Boyko-tuned engine sounded very crisp and ran amazingly on the top end. It had decent bottom-to-mid power as well, but just like any Banshee, it liked to be ridden on the pipe. The FMF exhaust system sang through the mountains, and of course we had to stay on the gas to keep our adrenaline rushing. The STI tires created great traction coming out of the corners, enough to pick the front end up if we weren’t careful. The modern Streamline brakes gave this Banshee a new and improved brake feel that made it easy to slow down, apex a corner, and ride out in a hurry.


We believe the best Banshee upgrade is modern suspension. These Elka Stage 3 front shocks and an Elka Stage 4 rear made a huge difference in comfort and handling.



We can tell you from experience that the stock Banshee shocks were terrible. The biggest upgrade we made to this already stellar machine was the Elka Shocks. With the Stage 3 front shocks having preload and compression adjustment and the rear Stage 4 having compression, rebound, and preload adjustment, it made a world of difference in the plushness of the suspension. It went through the rough chop and whoops like a dream and made us wish the Banshees of yesteryear had the same setup. The most fun we had was carving around the switchback mountain road, where the quad shines.

The only gripe we had with this Banshee was turning the beast. It took a lot of body language and arm strength to turn it, even when we had the Streamline stabilizer completely turned off. We’re sure that once we put more time on it the new bearings will break in and it will get better. The Alba foot pegs worked well and gave good traction for our boots to stay planted. We recommend going with the more modern Jettrim gripper seat cover, because your butt will need traction when riding a Banshee.


Boyko Racing made a great-running engine that is a rocket-ship thrill ride. Riding controlled wheelies like this made us confident of the rideability of this legendary quad.



Reviving this 26-year-old Banshee was fun. It brought us back to when two-stroke quads were still being produced and smoking everything they came across. There’s nothing like throwing a leg over a Banshee like this and hitting the trails with your buddies. We’re all jealous that our co-worker has such an awesome machine to take home. But, we’re proud that we could build it for her, just like her father did so many years ago. The great thing about the Banshee is that anyone could pick up a decent one for cheap these days, and there are more Banshee parts being made than for any other quad on the market. If you’re looking for the biggest thrill ride of your life, you may want to consider purchasing this legendary ATV.


The Jettrim gripper seat isn’t just sick looking, it also keeps your butt planted very well. Maier provided some great-looking plastic, and it mounted up like a dream.

Shocks stock banshee

Yamaha Banshee YFZ350 Elka STAGE 4 Fr Shocks Pr

Elka's front-end shock absorbers for sport and competition vehicles are available in a non-reservoir, a piggyback version or equipped with a remote reservoir. Both reservoir types are adjustable in rebound and compression or in compression alone.

Elka shock absorbers are assembled with high-quality springs manufactured from high-tensile chrome silicon. They are available with the "Self-Sagging Device"(SSD). The SSD gives the suspension maximum traction and stability at the beginning of the stroke while ensuring excellent impact resistance at the end of it. This feature lowers the height - and therefore the centre of gravity - of the ATV, resulting in easier turns and better weight transfer.

Every Elka shock absorber is custom-designed for rider weight and vehicle use (cross-country, motocross or recreational, and is compatible with any type of after-market frame or A-arm).
