GM Expects Self-Driving Vehicles to Be Reality V8TV
[08-Jan-2008] During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, General Motors (GM) will showcase one of its latest projects -- a vehicle that can operate without a driver. GM indicates vehicles that can park and drive themselves will give passengers the ability to multi-task and will also help reduce traffic congestion, save energy and reduce emissions. Currently, several outlets including GM, technology companies, university engineers and others are working on various self-driving options. GM's self-driving Chevrolet Tahoe, nicknamed the "Boss," was developed by the Carnegie Mellon University Tarton Racing Team, and was initially unveiled during the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Urban Challenge in November 2007. During a Jan. 8 address at CES by CEO Rick Wagoner, GM will also debut the petroleum-free Cadillac Provoq concept vehicle.





1971 Olds "S71" Chassis Clean-Up V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the chassis was media blasted, the guys took the welders, grinders, and sanders to the frame to clean-up what the factory left behind. They welded up unfinished factory seams, ground off excess welding slag and started measuring to add additional steel to "box" the original frame for strength. They also try out the new HTP micro belt sander to clean tight areas.

Rare OverDrive Unit found for the '37 School Bus
A friend of ours had this right down the street from us, and gave us a real good deal on it.. He bought it brand new in 1982, put it on his truck, drove it for about 40 miles, and sold the truck.. He took the overdrive unit out though before selling the truck, intending on using it in another truck later on, but never did.. We bought it from him still new in the box, with all the manuals and paper work.. It's a "Double Torque 2XT" , and was made by Power Torque Industries, Inc. Company, in Arlington, Texas.. It was made to bolt onto this SM465 G.M. four speed truck transmission that we are using.. We understand this company sold out to "Advanced Adaptors" and they continued building this same unit with very little changes.. They are now called the "Ranger Torque Splitter". . They no longer have the Eaton electric solenoid though, as the earlier units did, and have gone to strickly manual shift.. Although we have the electric solenoid, we decided to manual shift ours also.. These units are basically like having an additional transmission, one in front of the other.. Instead of the standard 4 forward speed and reverse, we now have the option of having 8 forward speeds, and 2 speed reverse.. According to the manual, this unit is actually better than a standard 5 speed transmission in fuel economy.. You only get a 17 % increase in economy with the 5 speed, and a 33 % with this unit.. "A typical 4-speed driven at 55 MPH in 4th gear would have an engine RPM of 2450. That same transmission with the 2XT added, driven at 55 MPH in 8th gear would have an engine RPM of 1830, a drop of 33 % in engine RPM.. Another good thing about this unit, over the "Gear Vendors" overdrive unit, is that It is a better design being mounted on the engine, instead of the rear of the transmission, as it never sees the multiplied torque, like the Gear Vendors units, which see 6 to 7 times the torque. We were glad to get this over drive unit, as with our 410 rear end gear ratio, it was going to be bad on gas.

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The Dyno/Tune was performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a Mustang Dyno). This car has an LS7 engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!





1968 Charger with Gearvendors
Just driving around in the 68 Charger using the gear vendors overdrive. Nothing to overly exciting. Just something to watch when winter cabin car fever starts kicking in. :) For whatever reason it sounds like the microphone on the iphone was distorting at the cursing rpm range. Pity. I really wish I could capture the low rumbling.
