This week’s installment of #SundayCarHumor features a quick but painful drift video where a Kiwi (that’s a person from New Zealand) loses control and smashes his S15 right into a wall.Extra painful since we can’t get a Silvia here but we can do our best to tune what we have with http://www.rvinyl.com/Nissan-Accessories.html.
There’s no denying that Audi makes some beautiful machines and the R8 is no exception. I mean, just take a look at the photo above and tell me you wouldn’t give up a week’s pay to drive an R8 for a day. But, anyway, I digress. It’s #Racing Friday again and this week the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is looking for some redemption. Last week, if you recall, we featured a video that (apparently) showed a Hellcat getting served by a Tesla S. This, understandably, really got under a lot of your guys’ skins and even I thought it was just a tad strange.
This week the Challenger gets some redemption as it annihilates the Audi R8 on time trial straight away. It’s a petty impressive feat and the engine sounds are amazing too. So, without further ado, here it is:

The big brake look is big business and has really taken off as more and more custom wheels and rims have come onto the market. In the past, you really never saw the brake assembly and calipers because thy were obscured by the wheels and hubcaps but today’s restylers have done away with smaller tires and ugly, factory hubcaps meaning that you need to do something about your brakes if you want a true, custom look.
There are tons of options for you to choose from such as MGP or ABS Caliper Covers as well as brake pad caliper plates from custom manufacturers like American Car Craft bu for the purist there’s really nothing better than caliper paint. Sure, you may end up spending a little more time to do it well but, as you can see in the picture above, the results are beyond compare if you’re the type who likes to keep things as close to factory as possible.
Now, we could spend a lot of time talking about the merits of G2 Paint especially as it compares to VHT and Duplicolor but we won’t, at least not today. Instead, we’re presenting this application video so you can see what it takes and make the smart decision when it comes to brake and caliper cosmetic modification. Let us know what you think and happy Thursday!
You might have realized that this week we’re showcasing wheel accessories. One of my all time favorite, as I think I even said yesterday, are Wheel Bands. In today’s One Minute Install (which runs over one minute per usual) shows a Silver track with a Red insert being installed on a Charger. Protection. Styling. Really doesn’t get any better than this for under $100.
So, it turns out the Winter Storm Juno was a bust but it still meant that about 8 million people in NYC couldn’t go to work today. As a result we found ourselves at home with the kids trying to figure out what to do with our time. Naturally, it occurred to us to look to see what cool gadgets there are to winterize your tires precisely for his kind of inclement weather. What we found is pretty cool: Spike Spiders
Made in Switzerland and sold here in the US, this product is a great alternative to chains and a lot cooler looking. Check out the video above and visit their website here: http://www.spikes-spider.ch/
