SPOTTED: Gulf Racing Ford GT40 on Highway


Gulf Racing Ford GT40
I was rolling down the highway when suddenly this Gulf Racing Ford GT40 ripped past me. The car is definitely full of genuine Ford GT power, but I think most likely the paint is a replica of the original Gulf Racing Ford GT40. These cars are a real thing of beauty to see in person, especially going flat out on the highway! Check out this story from when we got Really up Close with a Beautiful Ford GT from The Art Collection.

The 700 WHP Mitsubishi Evo that'll Wipe that Smirk Right Off your Face


Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 700 whp Wheel Horse Power
Now here's a prime example of passion driving dedication to produce a build of exquisite caliber and quality. From a story that no doubt, many of you can relate to in your own way of striving to complete a goal in the face of adversity, along with that oh so familiar feeling of wanting, Just a little more power... Take a minute to check out the story behind Jay Dao's Mitsubishi Evo and enjoy while you momentarily live vicariously through the thought of what, 700 wheel horse power really feels like in an all wheel drive car, as light as that.

"I got the car when I came back from deployment back in 06. When I first started modding, I always wanted to wipe the smirk off people's faces thinking their car was fast lol. Now as I get older, its more of a goal in life to finish something I started. To me it's more engine porn than horsepower. Looking at all the welds, time spent planning and building. Once it all comes together it's like a movie that was filmed and now everyone gets to enjoy it."

Jay and his sister were raised by their Mother, in a setting where due to circumstances beyond their control, the father was not supportive and fostered negativity in a bad environment and projected impending doom and failure without him. Needless to say, Jay (now a Software Engineer) and his Sister (a Biochemist) have actually done quite well for themselves! Jay has been saving up and buying parts for the last six years for this build, which he has been patiently awaiting the completion of for a long time coming.

"I did what everyone should never do. I made an excel sheet of what everything cost + the car. I think I'm at around 70k usd or so. Not too bad over 6 years. At one point I debated on selling everything off and just saving money. After some consideration and talking to fellow big build owners, I decided to just finish it up or I would regret it."

This is a bold strategy and one that I can tell you leads to immense happiness upon completion, the classic "All-in" on your dream goals, hard work never leaves you feeling disappointed.

"As much as I would like to say I race competitively, its more of a street car... I will be taking it to events and shows... In a Japanese car, I can't tell you how many times people have egged me on to launch it but don't get very many street races. They just look at the car... but one time I've had a r6 with his group of friends egg me on. I can say that I put about 5 car lengths on him on the free way."

The Power: "The motor is going back in this week with the forward facing manifold. The last car with a smaller turbo made 670whp. I should be over 700. It's going to be a built 2.0L on a Forward facing twin scroll T4 6265. My old turbo manifold was a twin scroll and I had 2 wastegates lol. 30 to 35 psi. Ecu controlled boost controller via gm 3 port."

The All New Record Setting 2015 Subaru WRX STI on the Isle of Man TT Challenge Course Flat Out in a "Stock" Car

Take a look at the all new Subaru 2015 WRX STi in this video where Subaru sets a new production car lap record around the infamous Isle of Man TT Challenge course. Subaru set a previous record at the Isle of Man back in 2011 but this year they're sitting on an all new chassis designed to be 40% stiffer and touted as being the best handling and best performing STi ever made.

The interior looks phenomenal with a very clean fit and finish functionality balance, while on the outside rocking the gold BBS wheels with Direzza tires and stock Brembo brakes but with upgraded pads, which as you can see under heavy braking creates some serious heat, and a new 13:1 hydraulic steering rack. This video from Subaru shows all the exciting details:
There's a hand built 6 speed racing gear box in every STi which delivers power to drive-line, the drive-line itself is pretty awesome, featuring a mechanical helical style front differential, two center differentials, one electronic and one mechanical, and a torsion differential in the rear, all 4 of these diff's are controlled by one smart computer that sends torque and traction to wheels it see's fit to handle them.

In just the warm-up lap the driver's heart rate went from a resting 114 bpm to 130+ bpm, respiratory rate 17 to 27 breaths per minute, as he experienced flat out forces of more than 1G breaking and turning into corners and travelling at speeds in excess of 200+ km/hr.

A mere 13:83 into the course, the "stock" (Except for a few safety improvements) Subaru WRX STi is flying down past the grand stand into one of the most dangerously renowned corners of the track at 161 miles per hour and the wheels are lifting off the ground. This course has a lot of history and if you're even the slightest bit curious for more, it'll be worth your while to watch this Documentary from Al Jazeera about the Isle of Man TT.

On the straightest section of the track it reaches 168 miles per hour while catching air off a small jump, heart rate a steady 150 bpm with 34 breaths a minute. With this TT course he reckons you're on throttle about 80% of the time, it's a very fast course.

He completes the 37 mile course lap in 19:15:88 resetting the new production car lap record with an average speed of 117.510 miles per hour, a heart pounding 160 beats per minute and an overall just under 1% increase in skin temperature.

In this video an American freelance photographer (Jason Thorgalsen) spotted this Lamborghini Huracan prototype driving on the highways around the Gulf Coast of Florida today, unfortunately the Lambo driver did not appreciate the independent press-coverage of being filmed while driving and called in an Audi A8 to aggressively cut-off and block Jason's car from following the Huracan off the highway.
The Lamborghini driver then approaches Jasons car and berates him, yelling at him while reaching inside his car and shoving the camera. The driver returned to the Lambo and took off while again the Audi A8 blocks Jason from following.

This shameful display should remind manufacturers that the people who drive their bleeding egde cars become ambassador's to the brand both negatively and positively - perhaps why Ferrari is so exclusive with their brand, and they should remind these clowns that the public road-ways are no place for race car driver tactics and the highways are public property where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy, if you're driving there, Jason Thorgalsen has every right to film and photograph you - even if you don't want to be filmed.
