The Blackbird: A Shape-shifting Chameleon car from The Mill

GIF Blackbird by The Mill VFX Technology Car

Imagine a car with chameleon like abilities - this is it. A visual effects solution for automotive advertising, for a problem most manufacturers likely didn't even realize existed. This is very clever idea that frankly, we all should've thought up sooner! The technology required to do this has been around, it just took someone thinking side-ways to put it all together into something useful.

The Lemon Jeep Grand Cherokee Song

So this guy named Teg, from Australia, bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2013 for $60K, and since purchase has had a plethora of issues and had to be towed a number of times. He no longer trusts it to transport his family, and has basically been given the shaft from Fiat Chrysler Australia, so he does what any angry person would reasonably do when given a lemon - make lemonade!

A few of the lyrics from the song:
"I had a master plan I spent 60 grand on a grand cherokee to transport the fam, I thought a new car would be safe with a baby on the way and it just wasn't the case, after 15 faults 3 times it was towed... I made a mistake I bought a Jeep... Chrysler makes money out of bullying the consumer..."

6 Months ago I predicted Furious 7 would be the 4th Highest Grossing Movie of All Time, 5 Months before it's release date and Today, it's true.

6 Months ago, I wrote down an open prediction about how I thought the future success of the movie 'Furious 7' would go, titled: Furious 7 Will be Lucky # 7 as The Highest Grossing Movie Release in the Franchise Series - Because: Paul Walker. At the time, we were still 5 months before the release of the movie, which only just premiered in theaters April 3, 2015. After the article was posted here on The SkyLife news blog I posted a link to the article on a public forum site, partially to provide verifiable proof of my claim through an independent third party site, and partly because I was curious to know what other fans of the movie franchise would think of my wild prediction. 

Furious 7 Will be Lucky # 7 as The Highest Grossing Movie Release in the Franchise Series - Because: Paul Walker

Furious 7
Just as promised, by one of the longest running and most successful action-car-movie franchises in history, we have seen the release of the official trailer for Furious 7 today, slated to hit theaters and IMAX everywhere on April 3rd 2015. This will be one of the highest grossing releases of all time for the Fast & Furious franchise, and may possibly even smash several other records. Everyone can already "feel" that it's going to be a hit, but we can show you through recent Search Trend Analysis that there is a tsunami approaching, and the swell is starting to build a Synergy Effect - This will be, Lucky Number Seven.

Lamborghini Driving Experience at the Race Track

Lamborghini Driving Experience
This video clip comes from a local Volvo fan who had the chance recently, to have the real deal Lamborghini driving experience at the race track, Autodrome st. Eustache. Taking the car up to speeds in excess of 180 km/hr, it was his first time driving the All Wheel Drive Lambo doing 3 laps around the track.
The drivers were given the choice between an Audi R8, a Ferrari or this Lamborghini, once the drivers selected their car, they were given a brief introduction to the track and safety guidelines, as well as shifting using the paddle system.

Nissan Oil Pump Replacement Solution for Skyline GTR Engine RB26DETT

Here is a novel solution to the Nissan Skyline Oil Pump Problem from Supertec Racing, based on the Spline drive oil pump from the Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE motor, these guys have built a set of gears that will work with pretty much any RB oil pump out there. Including the Tomei, Jun, N1 77mm and OE Nissan 81mm oil pumps.
Spline Drive N1 Stock Jun and Tomei RB Oil Pumps
Supertec mentioned having supplied seven sets of these gears so far to customers that have been running them now for a few months, using them in drag racing engines like the RB26 and RB30 where some engines are producing in excess of 900 BHP and revving to 10k RPM as well as using launch control - zero issues have been reported yet.
Damaged Stock Nissan Oil Pump Drive
You'll recall the big killer of the stock oil pump on the Skyline is precisely hard rev limiter slams on the narrow contact patch - it's easy to see how a spline drive would solve this problem very effectively when considering, that with the splines you pretty much get contact of all splines equally distributing the force and you have the oil film between the splines as a damper as well. In most cases there are no issues with alignment during installation, you fit the pump to the block just like you would with an oem pump.
