Corvette ZR1 vs Chrysler 300C SRT8 – Ends in a crash

August 14th, 2011 No comments

If you’re going to showoff in your Corvette ZR1, you might want to make sure your traction control is on! This guy tried to show off and do a flyby on this Chrysler 300C SRT8, but ended up losing control and smacking into the side of the car. I’d call this a huge fail.

Not safe for work! Has foul language!

The video is short, but goes to show … c’mon guys, no street racing!

Kanye West and Jay-Z Destroy Maybach in “Otis” Music Video

August 14th, 2011 1 comment

How do two of the top rappers make a statement? Easy! Destroy a $350,000 Maybach in a music video. Kanye West and Jay-Z decided that they were going to try something different, and have the music video focus on the complete destruction of a Mercedes Maybach luxury sedan.

In the video, Kanye West and Jay-Z use cutters and plasma guns to rip through the sheetmetal of the unsuspecting Maybach. What’s funny is that if you take into consideration how much money they made from this music video, the Maybach was simply a $350,000 prop. Once the doors and roof have been cut off, they take a joy ride in the car to finish it off.

They made a wide body kit from extra sheet metal, and some kind of a crazy spoiler using what looks like parts of the doors.

Hey guys… next time you want to throw away $350,000, why not send it to me? I’ll buy a Nissan GT-R, and add $250,000 worth of mods to it. To show my thanks, I’ll make sure to mention where the car came from.

Customer Review: Ford Probe Yonaka Coilovers

May 22nd, 2011 No comments

Since their introduction, the Yonaka Coilovers have been extremely popular amongst enthusiast who are looking for a good suspension at a reasonable price. The Yonaka coilovers are fully height adjustable and offer many features that give your car sharp handling and precision cornering all while maintaining a quality ride that is perfect for the daily driver.

One of our customers, Erik, was very interested in these coilovers, and wanted to try them on his Ford Probe. He sent us a review and a write up to feature on the site. Enjoy!

I was unsure about purchasing this suspension at first. I’ve had coilovers in my Civic for 60,000kms, so I was not worried about the stiff ride. Always wanted ksports, heard good things and bad things, but I just was struggling to find a set for a decent price.

The yonakas seemed to be a good alternative.

Cost – 660.00 USD shipped to my door in Canada (vs well over 1000.00 for new ksports)

-Cheap cost
-Stainless steel adjustment rings
-Limited lifetime warranty
-4″ of drop

-no dampening adjustment
-unable to find someone esle that ran them, so i had to take a chance

I tried to do research for a couple weeks on this suspension but couldn’t find a damn thing on a probe or mx6. I read numerous Honda reviews and a few Toyota etc, which I figured would give me at least a feel for the reliabilty of these coils.

Warranty is limited lifetime VS ksports 1 year.

I received the coils 3 days after ordering and I was very excited!

They looked to be high quality peices.. The thing that really impressed me was first off the stainless adjustment rings, but as well the coil keys that came with it. (little claw looking guys for adjusting the ride height). A normal coil wrench is around maybe 4 inches long, these were twice that, and very thick, so at least they wont strip and you will get some leverage.

Installation was a breeze! No different then any other coilover, aside from the use of stock strut mounts.

This is the only pic I have of them installed, excuse the fender roller, was working on fitting a 18×9.5 in the rear.

Heres a before reference with B&G springs, dropped just over 2 inches.

This was on 19×8.5′s and lowering springs. No near low enough for me.

Here is a few after shots

I am dropped just over 4 inches from stock. The front has all the drop I can get out of them, the rear has another inch and a half or so it can drop. I did 11,000kms on these this past summer and had no issues, no change in ride or feel, they did settle a little lower as the summer went on, but not really any change.

There is no dampening adjustment on these, where they are set is what you get. My car never ever sees a track so it wasnt an issue for me.

The roads are very bad here, and yes they are stiff, but not horrible, less so them ksports I think.


I love them and would recommend them to anyone.


PS: I attached a few other pics from the summer that you may want! Not much or a write-up, but do not know what esle to say but they are great. I would love is they had camber plates and i didnt have to use my stock strut mounts, since my wide wheels required some camber adjustment. I was the first person ever in the world to run a 9.5 wide on a probe and the yonakas let me do it!

Video: BMW M3 GTS Review on Fifth Gear

April 11th, 2011 No comments

The new BMW M3 GTS is a purpose built race car, and nothing says it more than simply taking a look inside. Roll cage, race seats, fire extinguisher and the works. The BMW M3 GTS is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 making 474 horsepower, and BMW will only make 250 of these to complete the limited production run. Power remains at stock levels but due to weight savings there is about 135 kg less weight to throw around.

Most of the performance work is in the suspension where the car is lowered 16mm in the front and 12mm in the rear giving it a lower center of gravity and overall better performance. The suspension and tires are top notch race grade and mean serious business.

190 mph Top Speed and 0-62 in 4.4 seconds for this M3, thanks to BMW removing the top speed limiter. The 7 speed automatic is the only transmission available with paddle shifters.

Fifth Gear did a video test of the new BMW M3 GTS and we included it for you here:

We love the Recaro seats and bright orange color. But can BMW justify that this car costs twice the price of a normal BMW M3? The car is stunning and we are looking forward to seeing how it performs in competition.
