Limit Pushing - Hennessey Velociraptor 600 0-60 Test
Usually we stick to testing everyday road cars, but every once in a while we get a hold of something a little more interesting. This was my first ride in a Hennessey tuned vehicle, and it was nothing short of impressive. The 0-60 time is about average for a sports car, but for a truck? Pretty amazing to me.....

Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO Base Line Dyno Test
We're back! Sorry to keep you all waiting, but life has been a bit busy.
Our turbo LS2 GTO has been around for a
while now running on a simple street tune. We will get a more efficient
tune on the Dyno soon,
but until then, we wanted to see what kind of numbers it could put down.
Turns out it makes quite a bit over stock, but there will be more to come.
Our more expert audience will most likely notice the odd power curve. This
is a result of the timing being pulled to promote the longevity of the
engine before a Dyno
tune could be performed.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the
United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia
from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the
most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at
a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on
performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its
attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the
"Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized
Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8.
The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato"
after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by
becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package
had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales
of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package
included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB
four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7
blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with
Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider
wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The
original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a
standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac
pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it
eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's
saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power
increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air
applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds
and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were
down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974
Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as
the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the
compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford
Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the
four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a
quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but
1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept
was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the
Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp
LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a
choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was
sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet
Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling
which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance
(even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's
failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models
were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2
engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing
quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once
again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.
Limit Pushing - 2011 Expedition Top Speed Test
Finally ending Ford's reign over the Limit Pushing Channel is the top speed
of the new Expedition. We have read reports that this thing can top 135
mph...limiter removed...so we knew the limiter must be set low. Please
don't shoot the messenger. This is as fast as it goes with the limiter on.
The Ford Expedition:
The Ford Expedition was introduced in 1997 as a replacement to the Bronco.
It was previously slotted between the smaller Ford Explorer and the larger
Ford Excursion, but as of the 2005, it is Ford's largest SUV. It is the
second Ford to use the Expedition name, as it was part of the Explorer
Sport's trim models in 1995. The Expedition offers up to eight passengers'
seating and a V8 engine, similar to the Lincoln Navigator. Over 1,500,000
Expeditions have been sold since its introduction.
The second generation Ford Expedition was introduced in 2002 for the 2003
model year and featured an all-new 4-wheel independent suspension with
"hydroformed" fully boxed frame that was 70 percent stiffer. The all-new
rear suspension was multi-link independent and reduced rear unsprung weight
by 110 pounds, improving the suspension's wheel travel and its ability to
track uneven terrain or road surfaces for improved control and ride
quality. The Second generation was powered by a 5.4 liter Triton engine
which produced 260 hp and 365 ft-lbs of torque. The Expedition had an
available heavy-duty trailer tow package for a best in class trailer towing
capability of 8,900 lbs.
Limit Pushing - 2003 BMW 330ci Top Speed Test
Before I say anything, I (as well as everyone else) am very aware of the
BMW 155 mph limiter. In the United States, The 2003 330ci was limited to
This was one of our more interesting videos that 1) was not edited well
since it was made when we were just starting out 2) lost a lot of its
popularity over time.
So here is the re-release, I hope everyone enjoys it!
The BMW 330ci:
The BMW E46 330 ci was the highest end 3 series you could buy (that wasnt a
M car). The 330 sported a 3.0 Litre inline 6 (235 Hp) . There are a select
few 330ci that have the smg transmission. The body styles of the 330 were
the coupe, convertible, and sedan. The optional performance package
stiffened up the suspension, lowered the car, added M rims, and whited out
signals and tail lights.
Das BMW 330ci:
Das BMW E46 330 Ci war das höchste Ende 3 Reihe, die Sie kaufen konnten
(das nicht a.m.-Auto war). Die 330 sported einen 3.0 Liter inline 6 (235
Pferdestärken) zusammengepaßt mit einem automatischen Senden mit 5
Geschwindigkeiten mit steptronic oder einem Handsenden mit 6
Geschwindigkeiten. Es gibt wenig 330ci ein auserwähltes, das das
smg-Getriebe haben. Die Körperarten der 330 waren das Kupee, das
Kabriolett und die Limousine. Das wahlweise freigestellte Leistungspaket
versteifte sich herauf die Aufhebung, senkte das Auto, addierte m-Kanten
und whited heraus Signale und Endstücklichter.
Limit Pushing - Ferrari California At The Drag Strip
The driver was definitely going easy on her, as seen in the slightly slower
times, but it really was a cool opportunity to see a Ferrari California in
The Ferrari California:
The Ferrari California was introduced in 2008 reviving the "California"
from the late 1950s Ferrari 250 GT. The California is a two door "2+2" hard
top convertible powered by front-mid mounted 4.3 L V8 which produces 450
hp. This engine propels the California to a top speed of 193 mph and a 0-60
of 3.4 seconds. Rumor has it that the California was originally a concept
for a new Maserati which the Fiat Group badged as a Ferrari in order to
justify the high cost of purchase. The California is the first front engine
V8, folding metal roof, and direct gas injection for Ferrari. Top up, the
California has a drag coefficient of 0.32 which makes it the most
aerodynamic Ferrari ever made.

2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Limited Off-Road Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Limited is not exactly set-up to be the
most off-road worthy truck that Ford builds. In fact with 22 inch wheels
the Limited Model is perhaps one of the less off-road worthy light duty
trucks on the market. But never-the-less we wanted to see how well this
truck would deal with the Colorado Rocky Mountains. In another accurate,
fun and informative review, Nathan and Roman put the 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Limited to the TFLtruck test by
taking it into Colorado mountains to see how well this truck drives when
the going gets tough.
