Point BRAKE

28 02 2011

All work no play, the best of the best.  Going fast in racing is only half the battle, just as import is how fast you can stop.  Loving the beauty in the function of this up close shot of a Ferrari 599XX wheel and brake setup.

Purple Haze

28 02 2011

I dunno, maybe it’s just me…but I think the owner of this car went a little too overboard with Matte Purple.  Sure the SLS is a performance car, but in my opinion, it’s a little too classy of a car to paint/wrap an obnoxious color.

RETRO 13 Playoffs

If you’re up on your shoe game then you’ll know the Air Jordan Retro 13 Playoffs will be dropping this weekend.  I still haven’t decided if I’m going to get a pair or not…

B Nasty

24 02 2011

While many Honda tuners have opted to the more modern K swaps now days, it’s refreshing to see guys still building up the workhorse B series engines.  This one looks especially juicy thanks to a pet snail.

Black Ops

24 02 2011

There’s a saying, there’s no replacement for displacement.  Some would argue you can in fact replace displacement with forced induction.  What do you get when you force induct a large displacement engine?  Answer, the AMG SL65 Black Series…there truly is no replacement for the V12 twin turbo engine at the heart of this monster.

Fun fact: The V12 twin turbo makes 661hp.  Engineers at Mercedes Benz had to detune the engine down to 661hp because they couldn’t build a transmission strong enough to handle a higher output.
