World's Greatest Drag Race 2!
It's back! The World's Greatest Drag Race returns with nine of the world's
best supercars, sports cars, and muscle cars for 2012 facing off in an epic
quarter-mile sprint for glory... and ultimate bragging rights! This year's
field includes all nine contenders from Motor Trend's 2012 Best Driver's
Car competition. We have the Lamborghini Aventador, Nissan GT-R Black
Edition, Ford Shelby GT500, McLaren MP4-12C, Jaguar XKR-S, Porsche 911
Carrera S, Subaru BRZ, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 -- all gathered
together on an abandoned airstrip at El Toro Marine Base to find out which
car is the fastest. Obviously these nine competitors display a wide range
of power and performance, not to mention price tags. So why are we lining
them all up again for one gigantic, over-the-top drag race? It's simple...
Because We Can!

Giant Turbo LS1 IS300 Burnout! (and more)
After a little cruise and some racing we decided it was time to finish off
some tires before the weather gets cold and we put our cars away for the
winter. Parish's 5.7L IS300 did quite the burnout followed by a few other
decent burnouts. Just havin fun! :)
LS1 Swapped Lexus IS300
Skip to about 0:23 to avoid my super boring intro. I was going to put a mod
list up but got impatient and wanted to see what the video looked like on
YouTube after being uploaded.
This is my LS6 swapped Lexus. All work done by myself with some help from
Dedicatedmotorsports.com. They supplied my headers, motor and transmission
mounts, clutch hydraulics, solid diff bushings, modified oil pan and
driveshaft. Everything was great and fit perfect. First I had a 5.3 liter
iron block in it with a cam and LS6 intake manifold but I pulled that out
and installed the LS6 with a FAST intake and throttle body as well as LS7
lifters, Texas Speed pushrods, g5x3 cam from LG, and that's pretty much it.
Planning on selling this engine for a iron block 6.0 and a Supercharger after I paint it, so It'll probably
be another year or two before the car is completely done.
The car is slightly lighter than a stock 2JZ car but currently has over
double the power. I need paint I know. This is actually the first video
I've ever shot or edited ever so its not that great and I just wanted to
get familiar with both aspects.
Shot with a Canon T4i and edited poorly with Vegas Pro. No lights like I
needed inside the vehicle and I don't have any sliders or anything yet.
Pretty amateur but gear is expensive so it'll take me a little while to get
everything I want to make nicer looking videos... Plus some practice and
Lexus IS300 Vinyl Wrap Time Lapse
My buddies and I wrapped a Silver Lexus IS300 with a heavy metallic root
beer color. Turned out great, but had some issues with the time lapse. But
it worked out!
Keep watching after the first black out for the completed product!

Lexus LFA Clears It's Throat, And Gets BUSTED...
Well you wanted more of the Lexus LFA, I was asked by many if I could get
video of the LFA's launch control, more reving, and faster driving, so that's what we did. Got
it to 168MPH!
We also paid for it also by getting pulled over and slapped with a pretty
hefty ticket. But.. It still turned out to be a fun day. Think the driver
will get the ticket lowered in court?
Elattrache Photography was also there for the filming and he got some
AMAZING photos of the LFA.
I highly recommend you check out his photos at

2001 Lexus IS300 Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
The original first attempt at a true RWD sport sedan from Lexus, the IS300.
We think it was a great first effort and the brand has done a good job with
the succeeding generations. If you are in the market for a used sport sedan
and don't mind a cramped interior, this vehicle should be at the top of
your list. Those of you seeking more power and space should check out the
Acura TL and Infiniti G35.
