How Travis Pastrana Uses iRacing For Real Racing: Video

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Pro drivers, despite living the dream, don’t always get that much track time on a given race weekend. So what do they do to get an edge–or even just to get familiar with a trak they haven’t raced on before? They use simulators–and some of them use familiar, retail sims that us regular folks can use, too. One of them is iRacing. This video shows…

We’ve seen the near-production Porsche 918 Spyder in several different forms, including its most recent Martini Racing livery, for months now. The official releases have all but given away what the production version of the car will look like, but in this video, we see what purports to be the real deal, dressed in simple silver rather obfuscating…

Porsche Panamera Diesel by McChip-dkr

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

With 250 HP, the Panamera Diesel isn’t the most powerful model in the line-up by a long shot. By comparison, the Panamera Turbo doubles this output (500 HP) and the Turbo S goes to 550 HP. Lucky for us, McChip DKR has revealed an impressive upgrade package to help the diesel engine out just a little bit.

The engine modifications prepared for the Panamera Diesel increase its 3.0 L V6 engine’s output to a total of 285 HP and 442 lbs-ft of torque. As a result, the sports sedan’s top speed can now go up to 152 mph with an undoubtedly faster 0-60 mph sprint time (no official time provided).

Next to the engine update, McChip-DKR is also offering a new set of performance springs from H&R which lowers the big Porsche by about 30 millimeters, as well as a new set of 22″ wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT high-performance tires.

It may not be the power and performance provided by the Turbo and Turbo S models, but this extra little boost to the Panamera Diesel may just be enough to make some Porsche customers happy.

BMW Sends an Armed Repo Team and Helicopter to Get Back a Loaner Car, but Ultimately Fails

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

There are some pretty shady repossession companies in the world and ?reality? shows like Lizard Lick Towing and Operation Repo dramatize some of the shady actions. Well, apparently in South Africa, they take repossessing a car to a whole new level.

A customer took his brand new BMW 320d to a dealership due to defective air conditioning. The dealer never fixed the car to the customer’s liking, so the customer left the 320d at the dealership until either the issue was fixed or he was issued a replacement car. In the meantime, BMW gave him a loaner 325.

There was some kind of misunderstanding between the customer and BMW about how long he was allowed to use the loaner car for, as BMW had tried multiple times to recover said loaner. Well, this last time, BMW sent Netstar to his house armed with guns and a helicopter hovering overhead and allegedly forced the customer to turn over the keys.

After turning over the keys, the customer got a court order forcing the BMW dealer to give him back the loaner car and both sides will have to present their case in front of the High Court within 30 days for a final judgment. The customer claims that BMW said that he could keep the loaner car until the situation is resolved, but the BMW dealer is claiming that the case may take up to three years and they would never loan a car for that long.

In all, this is a messy situation for the dealership and BMW as a whole. We think it might be time for BMW’s corporate offices to step in and just handle this situation and give the customer a new car with correctly operating A/C. It’ll be a small price to pay to keep negative press from spreading too far.

Video: 2012 Camaro ZL1 vs. 1969 Camaro "Red Devil"

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

We all know the Camaro ZL1 rather well by now. If not, crawl out from under that rock you’ve been sleeping under and we will let you know that it’s the biggest and baddest new Camaro available. It pumps out a monstrous 580 ponies at 6,000 rpm and 556 pound-feet of torque at 4,200 rpm. This all adds up to roughly a 4.4-second sprint to 60 mph.

The car you may not have heard of is the 1969 Camaro ?Red Devil.? The name ?Red Devil? says it all, as this Camaro is by far one of the baddest classic Camaros out there. This `69 Camaro boats a 7.0-liter V-8 engine from a Corvette Z06 with a ZR1’s cylinder heads, valve train, and supercharger installed, which gets it to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.

The question is, can this modernized `69 Camaro beat the technology-packed 2012 ZL1? The video above lets us know who’s boss, and you might be surprised to find out just how closely matched these two cars are, despite the 2012 ZL1 giving up 176 horsepower and the ?Red Devil? coming up a little short in the technology department.

Check out the above video to see these two duke it out on the track, as Mark Stielow whips them both around GingerMan Raceway.

Toyota says no to bringing the Scion FR-S Convertible to the US market

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

One would think that living in America would have its advantages. Don’t get us wrong; we love the merits of the good ’ol U-S-of-A, but sometimes, this country doesn’t always get what it wants.

Take the recent news about the Scion FR-S Convertible as an example. The new Japanese sports coupe is available in the US as a coupe model, but according to AutoNews, that’s as far as it gets.

Due to “pricing issues,” Toyota has announced that the convertible model of the FR-S will not be made available in the US. You read that right: not available in the US.

We don’t know about you, but this news is pretty devastating, especially for those who have been waiting for a topless version of the FR-S. As if to rub salt on our wounds, Toyota has given the green light to bring a convertible model of the Toyota GT86 in a number of other markets all over the world.

As for the third sister in this trifecta, the Subaru BRZ Convertible, there’s been no confirmation on whether one will come in the future.

But no Scion FR-S Convertible in the US? Bummer. Bummer, indeed.
