Watch a Diesel Engine Explode Dramatically on the Dyno
I have no problem with trucks or guys hopping up their turbo diesel trucks for performance. I do hate it when they rig the truck to belch black smoke, annoying all the other drivers on the road, and unnecessarily polluting the environment.

Originally, we heard that the ZR1 would pack in 600 lb-ft of torque, but Road & Track is reporting that the beast will make about 715 lb-ft of torque and a 212 mph top speed.

This Russian Truck Has an Appropriately Russian Easter Egg
Russia isn’t exactly known for their cars. Most of the ones I’m aware of are either highly utilitarian, boxy trucks and vans, crazy military style off-roaders, or junky sub-compacts held together with bubble gum and spit.

Remote-Controlled Nissan GT-R Hits 130 mph
The Nissan GT-R is perhaps the most precise and predictable sports car on the market. It’s incredibly responsive, and sharp as a tack going around a road course. I speak from experience. It’s like a precision scalpel that makes anyone behind the driver’s seat look like a pro.

A Devilish Day at the Drag Strip with the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
