Front Wheel Drive

This was a great advertising campaign by BMW, explaining why they don’t build front wheel drive cars.

Rhys Millen Record

"Rhys Millen"

You saw the 5th consecutive World Record for 2010 by Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima here.

Here is Rhys Millen’s 2009 Attack 2WD Record run up Pike’s Peak from the driver’s perspective, in it’s entirety. Enjoy the ride! 

 

Buying Your First Car

This is a wonderful Volkswagen commercial from The Netherlands. The text says: “Not every old woman is trustable, but a Golf is.” 

Last Minute Shopping… Hurry!

"Quick stop"

“I just had one thing to pick up, it was only for a minute”. 

Sure, In a Car…

"Sure, in a Car"

Can you do that on foot?

"Wonders"

Small Car?

"Geico"

Why yes, we do have a “Small Car Discount” on insurance at Geico.

Awesome Test Drive!

What great acceleration!

Green Flash

This isn’t exactly what we had in mind on “Going Green or the Green Flash” in September… I don’t recall a car being involved.

Missiles Chase Truck Down The 405!

 

This is one of the funniest ideas I have ever seen.

Ride Up Pike’s Peak With The World Record Holder.

On June 27, 2010, Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima won Pikes Peak for the fifth consecutive year. He is the current record holder.

The car is a Suzuki Twin TurboSX4, 900 hp, 150 mph screamer.

This is the entire winning run on June 27, 2010, with five onboard cameras. After the video, I’ll tell you my observations.

Enjoy the ride.

This is awesome video. If you have ever driven Pike’s Peak, it is mind boggling.

He is smooth as silk. He takes out a rock protruding a couple of inches from an embankment, and misses the embankment. Later, an orange highway cone knocks out the side video cam, but the car missed the cone. Even at this speeed, he is within two inches of where he wants to be. Oh, and sorry hay bale you’re in my line.

Even more remarkably, there is never a rooster tail, even when he is drifting.  He is using all of that power for forward progress, not wasting it throwing dirt in the air.

This is just awesome. I still get goose bumps watching this video.
