QS 500hp or Bust (again...)
After our appearance in Truckin Magazine and the saga of the blown motor,
we decided to come back stronger than ever and build something most people
had never even dreamed of.
Project: Quickshift is now, to my knowledge, the worlds first vehicle to
have forged internals for the GM Atlas 5cyl motor. It made 350rwhp in this
video and we are currently working to get that figure to over 400hp, which
roughly translates to over 500hp at the motor. In the coming weeks Motor
Machine Super Shop will be working to finish the motor build out and show
that 500hp in a reg. cab mid size truck, is plenty for anyone.

AutoX-ing the Canyon
Took the Canyon to the Good Guys AutoX on 5/31/14 and had some fun. My
buddy Jeff is riding shotgun while I try to go around without make it look
like I know what I'm doing.
Was running Nitto 420S tires 255/55/18 so times could greatly improve with
better tires and if I knew what the hell I was doing...
As always, thanks to Jay's Hot Rods, STS turbo, Nitto Tire, and XS Power for their support.
Proton Savvy, 1149cc, with semi-auto Renault Quickshift G'box (2009 vid).flv
This video was uploaded in 2009 on my previous YT account. I have received
several inquiries on the condenser unit and am now keen on manufacturing
this to sell due to popular demand. Most cars with Automated Manual
Transmission (which is basically a manual gearbox with a single clutch
plate utilizing hydraulic actuators to control the shifter and clutch,
freeing the user from having to engage gears via the stick and depressing a
clutch pedal) suffer from premature gearbox failure and rough gearshifts
due to transient pressure loss in the hydraulic system. Such gearboxes
include the Quickshift (Renault), Selespeed (Alfa Romeo) and many others.
This is a test drive of my 4 year old Proton Savvy compact car - 1149cc
Renault D4F, 75BHP @ 5500rpm, 105nm @ 4250rpm, Galvanized high tensile
steel monocoque chassis, front wheel drive, sequential gearbox (manual
gearbox anatomy, no torque-converter), bore x stroke 69mm x 76mm, in-line
4, drive-by-wire throttle body, multiport fuel injected, SOHC 16 valves.
Front suspension is McPherson struts with lower control arm mounted on a
square type subframe. Rear suspension is programmed deflection torsion
This gearbox is basically anatomically similar to a manual transmission,
having a single clutch plate and 5 forward ratios with reverse. The shifter
in the gearbox is controlled by a hydraulic shifter actuator (aka a
"robotic arm") and the clutch is controlled a hydraulic pump actuator.
Pressure for the hydraulic system is built by a main electrical pump. The
control valves for both hydraulic actuators are controlled by high current
solenoids running from the car's line voltage.
There are some issues with the gearbox's hydraulic system due to
insufficient electrical reservoir resulting in undervoltage during shifts
which causes overheating, jamming and premature failure. Critical failure
is observed at 36,000 km mileage. The dimming of headlamps during gear
shifts is an obvious indication of a voltage dip, during which the
alternator is unable to compensate for a transient drain of high current by
the control solenoids of the hydraulic actuators. The undervoltage results
in a transient loss of pressure for both the hydraulic shifter actuator and
the hydraulic clutch actuator, due to improper activation of the solenoids.
This results in rough gear shifts where the actuators have to actuate
multiple times for a single action due to an undervoltage operation of the
solenoids. Clunky shifts with violent recoils, jerky ride and loud noise is
commonplace. Manufacturer refuses to admit design fault. Basically the
current ratings between hydraulic system and the car's electrical reservoir
were mismatched. After expensive repairs to replace the main electrical
pump and hydraulic pressure accumulator (worth RM 4,600/ 1,800 USD due to
the 150% import tax imposed by the Malaysian gov. on foreign auto parts),
the same symptoms of rough and jerky gear changes still prevail and
occasional overheating and jamming still occurs. Pressure loss of the
hydraulic system and undervoltage operation of solenoids still result in
rough, loud and clunky gear shifts.
The problem is then rectified using a DIY 0.5 farad voltage condenser as an
intermediate electrical reservoir with low electrical impedance to account
for the large current draw during gear shifts. The problem is then
completely solved. There is no more rough shifts and the clutching action
as surprisingly smooth and not jerky. Large current draw no longer affect
the headlamps as well as sensitive electronic equipment. Frequent, rapid
and arbitrary gearshifts are now permissible.
Other than that, this is a excellent car. High tensile steel compact
chassis provides an extremely rigid platform which offers virtually no flex
during threshold cornering. The rear torsion axle is surprisingly stable on
the straights and gives a 'passive rear wheel steering effect' that allows
extremely sharp cornering in which the car literally sticks like a leech
with minimum understeer. Recovery from understeer and oversteer is
surprisingly easy. Lotus tuned handling evident. Low drag coefficient
results in less fuel consumption on highways, and good stability at high
speeds. Effective cruising speed is at 140-160 km/h, (90-100 mph).
Surprisingly stable and agile at high speeds. Very easy to yaw (low yaw
angular inertia) into corners making it an excellent lane changing car (and
lane splitting if you are driving in Malaysia). Understeer is minor due to
lightweight engine and gearbox at the front as well as due to compensatory
effects of the rear torsion axle.
This is a test drive to show the effect of the voltage condenser here on
the shifting dynamics of the gearbox. Suburban test-drive is for increased
shifts. Car is four years old and there is virtually no problem with the
well built engine and chassis even after few years of very hard riding. The
driving in this video is more subtle and does not include threshold
cornering and full revving.
Chevy Colorado layed out on 24s/22s
Found this guy at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Car Show 4/25/09 in Half
Moon Bay, CA. Its originally an S10 that has Colorado skin on it. Not sure
on any more details but listen as he explains what all he's done.
2005 GMC Canyon Hertz/Audison system overview
2005 GMC Canyon with full Hertz/Audison stereo system. Was at one time, the
loudest regular cab Colorado/Canyon in the world w/o a blow-thru. System
has been measured at over 140dB and sports some of the best equipment
available to ensure high sound quality as well.
All fab and design work done by Auto Radio Stereo in Sacramento, CA.
Special thanks to Adam DeFazio and Flint Skupic for their hard work on this
4x4 z71 silverado 2007 7" lifted
this a other walk around my 2007 silverado with a 7" mcgaughys lift in my
other vid this thruck had a tahoe font which i took off cuz i relly didnt
like how it look lifted i traded to some guy in h-town its now on a singal
cab silverado they both were black so it was good for both of us.tires i
know there not to big but i wanted something i could drive on my oem rims
and still look good still needs some fog lamps on top and lol it doesnt
rain much here : ( but as soon it rains ill get you guys a vid of it full
of mudd hehe.
