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..... From Hennessey Performance's Website: "VelociRaptor 600 Upgrade: • Centrifugal Supercharger System • Air-to-Air Intercooler • High Flow K&N Air Filter • Fuel Injector Upgrade • Stainless Steel Long Tube Headers • High Flow Catalytic Converters • Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust • All Necessary Gaskets & Fluids • HPE Engine Management Calibration"

Limit Pushing - 2011 Ford Expedition 0-60 Test
We're back (finally) for the tail end of the summer, and I am going to try and make sure we get some interesting stuff posted before the end of August. Lets start things off with the revenge of the Expedition which, as some of you may know, was the slowest 0-60 time we had. The 2011 is here with extra gears and more valves. Lets see what it can do. (Top Speed video coming soon!) 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 - 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.

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 135 mph...promise. 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 - 2013 Audi A8 0-60 Test
Even though this is the supercharged V6 version, I've always wanted to see an A8 in action, and I'm sure many of our viewers have too. Our favorite thing about this car is that it dares to ask the question: "who doesn't need a massage on the road?"
