NSRA Appreciation Day 2 10 2018
37spiker


Published on Feb 11, 2018
Wow what a turnout. I overheard that there were over 270 cars in attendance. They ran out of room in the main parking area and had to start parking around the backsides of the buildings. NSRA Florida state rep. Greg Saunders and Streetside Classics did an outstanding job putting on the event, with the help of Gregs wife, Ed and Diane Miller, the safety inspection team, as well as others. I can't wait to see how next years turnout will be.

When I was doing that lake job I shared pics of in the Workin Man thread one of the condo owners was outside messing with this. I was enamored. Turns out there's a super cult following to the suckers and this guy has vids drag racing the thing!

RAM Making Its Move - Autoline This Week 2207
Autoline Network


Published on Feb 15, 2018
Despite the fact that it has six different brands, last year the two that made the most money for FCA were Jeep and RAM. And this year both brands are debuting new product. However, today there seems to be nothing more important to the public than a truck, and RAM has a dynamite light-duty version, which it unveiled recently at the North American International Auto Show. This week’s Autoline talks to the two men responsible for the interior design and marketing of the truck. Join us for a deep dive into the 2019 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup.

802hp MTM Supercharged R8 V10 - Hold on Tight! | TEST DRIVE
Shmee150


Published on Feb 17, 2018
What if you want your Audi R8 V10 Plus to be even crazier? Well, this particular R8 is not just any regular car because thanks to the team at MTM it now comes with 802 horsepower after the installation of a supercharger! Let's explore how that power delivery feels with a few opportunities to stretch the legs on the Autobahn, and believe me when I tell you that this car is fast!

With some small modifications to the exterior and parts that have been added for downforce, the biggest conversion by MTM is that supercharger bolted into the top of the 5.2 litre V10. Giving a driving sensation of fantastic speed but with linear power delivery, there's no sense of a shove in the back but the rate at which the speedo increases leaves one rather impressed. On the interior the car is fitted with a snug bucket seat, probably needed with the way this car can be driven!

Thanks for watching, Tim

Audi S1 Gets Audi S3 POWER! 310hp ABT Tune!
Mr JWW


Published on Feb 17, 2018
The highlight of every ABT Sportsline program is the engine upgrade the tuner provides. In the case of the S1, the aftermarket company used its ABT POWER New Generation system, bringing the output of the S1’s 2.0-liter inline-four TFSI engine from 231 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque all the way up to 310 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque. An impressive 34% improvement from the standard output of the S1.

►Thanks to Richter Sport for the awesome work on the Audi S1 tune!
Check them out here: http://www.richtersport.co.uk

► @richtersport_abt_uk ►@abt_sportsline

The upgrade is the ABT Power AEC (ABT engine controller)
It is a new engine controller with ABT Software (no other hardware is required) Plus an NSA warranty package for the remainder of the manufacturers warranty.

A full set of ABT Lowering Springs which offer approx 30mm lowering of both front and rear ride height. Finally a full Geometry setup to adjust the suspension to the new springs.

This is the new Audi A7 Sportback and everything you want to know about it! From a full in-depth walkaround to driving and explain on some stunning roads near to Cape Town in South Africa. With the new A7 incorporating Audi's latest technology and styling design cues, let's find out what it's all about!

The global launch event for the new A7 Sportback was hosted by Audi in Cape Town, offering some incredible weather and roads on which to spend some time with the luxury car that crosses between various categories. First is a walkaround exploration of the car, seeing the ins and outs. Then it's time for a first drive to experience it in a regular environment as a grand tourer before delving more into the latest Audi MMI Touch Response infotainment system.

Aspark Owl Electric Hypercar Just Did 0-60 In 1.9 Seconds

Aspark Owl.jpg
Jalopnik

Until today, the idea of a sub-2-second 0-60 time in a street-legal hypercar seemed the impossible barrier to break, but with the recent accomplishments of the Aspark Owl, announced yesterday, it is starting to seem like it could happen.

The Aspark Owl is a surprisingly sexy electric sports car, was launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year. Back then the car was claimed to theoretically make 430 horsepower, 563 all-wheel lb-ft of torque, weigh under 1900 pounds, and sprint to sixty in just two seconds flat.

Aspark says the OWL will enter a production run of 50 units soon, and will be priced at about $4.4 million. If you absolutely have to show your Tesla-owning middle-management neighbor who is the boss of the electric car commute, buy yourself an Aspark.

Who the hell has heard of these guys? A fifty car production run? And FOUR AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS?? A little to pricey for me to think about being the fastest kid on the block.

Heh, its a little tough to keep up with the searcher...
BF

Video of the run:

We hear about it every winter - people take their trucks (or cars or snowmobiles) out onto frozen lakes and then the trucks crash through the ice and sink. What do you do then? What will insurance cover (or not cover)? And how do you avoid this in the first place?
