Easter Jeep Safari 2010

27 03 2010

By the time many of you read this, I’ll be on the road to Moab, Utah for the annual Easter Jeep Safari for another off road excursion.  Terrain in Moab much different from the terrain encountered previously at Tierra Del Sol.  Tierra Del Sol is an open desert, with some challenging crevices, while Moab has much more actual rock which will require different styles and and techniques in order to navigate the trails.  It should be another eye opening experience being immersed in the world of off road for the next 7 days!  I’ll try to update whenever I get a chance from the road.

Strength & Honor,

Hennessey Venom GT

26 03 2010

My friend Nate just sent me a link with the leaked photo of the new Hennessey Venom GT.  Previous pictures on the internet all involved heavy shadowing  and photoshop work to mask the lines and true look of the car.

The Hennessey Venom GT is largely based off of the Lotus Elise chassis but will feature a whopping 1200hp twin turbo Dodge Viper V10.  Insanity.

**EDIT**

After doing a little more research, I found the original reports were wrong.  The Venom GT will in fact come with a LS9 powerplant superchaged and tuned to 725hp.  1,000 hp, and 1200hp variations will be available as LS9tt options.  Below is a shot of the LS9 baring all.

RAUH-Welt can literally do no wrong.

Could you ever imagine liking a flat purple widebody mid 90’s Porsche?  No?  Me either…but RAUH-Welt has done it again, check out one of his latest customer rides, a highly modified Porsche 993.

>>Flashback Friday<< Digital Underground – Same Song

26 03 2010

It’s that time again, the week is coming to an end, and to celebrate…another edition of Flashback Friiiiiday!

This week’s  song is Digital Underground’s jam “Same Song.”  Notice the young Tupac in the vide0, a time early in his career when he was still part of the Digital Underground crew.

Do Work!

25 03 2010

I came across this pictures on JDM Ego, of wind tunnel testing by Voltex.  Wind tunnel testing is often paid by the hour, and can be an extraordinary cost to the overall R&D of product.  I’m glad to see that there are still companies in the aftermarket industry willing to take the extra step to create a high quality product with real world function.  Do your part, and support authentic parts manufacturers!

World’s First 9sec. R35 GTR!

24 03 2010

The guys at AMS Performance are no strangers to building high horsepower cars.  With extensive Mistsubishi Evo builds that put them on the map, AMS as of late has focused it’s tuning abilities on the R35 GTR.  With multiple companies and tuners literally racing against the clock on the quarter mile, AMS has built the first 9 second R35 GTR.  Below are some pictures, and a video of both a dyno pass and the actual 9 second run.  Enjoy!

Congrats to the guys at AMS Performance!
