Lana. We learn the importance of having your street car tuned by a company
that goes out and wins races every weekend, and that on the track, horsepower is far from

Baja Trophy Truck vs. Boss 302 and Raptor: HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 17
Ever see an 800hp off-road race truck on the drag strip and road-race
course? Neither had we, which is why we set that up on this episode of HOT
ROD Unlimited. Join Mike Finnegan as he takes a look at the fabrication and
the power behind Cameron Steele's Desert Assassin Trophy Truck that runs in
the SCORE off-road race series, sponsored by Monster Energy and Yokohama
tires. You may also know Steele from hosting action-sports shows on TV, but
in this video he's at the wheel of his desert truck on the quarter mile of
Auto Club Famoso Raceway and the big track at Willow Springs International
Raceway, right alongside us in a new Mustang Boss 302 and a Raptor 4x4.

Maserati Hot Laps On And Around The Race Track - /SHAKEDOWN
Leo Parente and ShakeDown visit with Maserati while at Sonoma Raceway [aka
Infineon] during the WTCC [World Touring Car Championship] event. The
Italian brand brought over its Trofeo World Series racing program and
brought us a test drive in their Gran Turismo GT Sport roadcar, the
foundation car for its World Series racecars. Leo is joined by JF Musial

Le Mans and The Kink curve.wmv
Le Mans had from the beginning the longest straight of all, the Mulsanne
straight, and near the end of it, a flat-out curve, The Kink. But since
1990 no longer was the same, and the Mercedes C9 -winner of 1989- were the
last to pass it at 400 Km/h, day and night.

and establish a new benchmark for luxury sedans: must be able to do
burnouts while moving at highway speeds.
