Whether it's modified road cars or fully built track cars, we're all about finding ways to make the machines we love faster and more fun. You'll find a high-performance focus on our website and in our videos, where we test the latest go-fast parts and build a wide range of project cars while documenting the improvements in performance every step of the way. Dyno tests, track tests, DIY installation guides, and big, juicy burnouts are all part of the master plan. Peter Tarach and Dave Pratte, the driving forces behind Speed Academy, have been building, modifying, evaluating and racing cars for over a decade and were the key personnel behind the now shuttered Modified Magazine. Peter, Dave and their core group of contributors including shopmate Ken Wagan are all diehard petrolheads who know a thing or two about testing performance parts and building badass machines.
