Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test
This is one of the original crash test videos for the Pontiac Fiero. In this video, dummies were restrained with the factory seatbelts. "Fieros are deathtraps!" Not hardly...... Many people think that the Pontiac Fiero is an unsafe vehicle due to its small size. It turns out that the Fiero was the safest vehicle ever tested by the NHTSA without airbags. It was the second safest vehicle on the road in 1985, second to the Volvo DL Wagon. The DL had airbags. Even by today's standards, the Fiero still rivals many newer vehicles on the road today. The methods of testing are exactly the same in 2010 as they were back in 1979 when NHTSA began testing cars. Cars are tested by impacting a solid barrier at 35 MPH. The Fiero received a 5 star crash rating for both driver and passenger. A 5-star rating means a 10% or lower chance of serious injury. So 5-star means the same now as it meant 25 years ago. Here are a few comparisons: 1984 Pontiac Fiero Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover***** Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6 Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9 Femur Load 840/800 800/740 2003 Cadillac Deville Driver * Passenger *** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 826/507 Chest Deceleration (G): 75/58 Femur Load: 825/1297 875/848 2007 Buick Lacrosse Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 374/259 Chest Deceleration (G): 43/42 Femur Load: 1099/1112 909/405 2009 Ford Focus Driver ***** Passenger ***** Rollover **** Head Injury Criterion: 521/389 Chest Deceleration (G): 40/40 Femur Load: 1133/1652 1138/968 As you can see, the 1980s Pontiac is still one of the safer cars on the road today. The Fiero is as good as or better than many of today's vehicles that have airbags. The Fiero is also very stable. The Fiero received a Static Stability Factor, or Rollover Resistance rating, of 1.47. This equates to a 5-star rollover rating. Even if you are unfortunate enough to get into a rollover accident, the Fiero excels in safety once again with its incredibly strong roof structure. According to the NHTSA, the Fiero was tested by inverted drop and roof crush testing. In the inverted drop test, the Fiero, along with cars like the Ford F150 and Plymouth Laser were turned over and dropped on their roofs. The Fiero scored best with 8.3 cm crush on the a-pillar and 3.8 cm on the B-pillar. The Ford F-150 had the worst rating with 42.5cm crush on a-pillar and 40.6cm on the B-pillar. The Plymouth Laser actually had a slightly better rating than Fiero for B pillar with 3.2cm crush. In another publication, NHTSA tested cars roofs by crushing them with a steel plate and hydraulic ram. In the example given, the Chevrolet S10 had the worst rating with 5320 lbs roof strength, while the Fiero has the highest rating with 9909 lbs of roof strength. This equates to 3.53 roof strength to weight ratio, complying with even the most recent roof strength requirement of 3.00:1 strength ratio. It is kind of funny how the Pontiac Fiero is still meeting many of the most modern crash test requirements without even frontal airbags..... Now for Death rate. Death rate is a number given to cars to reflect the likelihood of death in any particular vehicle. The Fiero, along with Camaros and Firebirds, happen to have a very high death rate. A high death rate doesn't mean the car is unsafe, it just means that this type of car is going to be driven faster and more recklessly, increasing the chance of an accident, which in turn, increases the chance of serious injury or death. If you hit a concrete wall at 80MPH with no seatbelts on, I don't care what car you are in, you will be killed. The human body just simply cannot take that kind of G load and people need to stop driving like idiots. Please comment. I would like to see your reaction to this and hear some of your crash stories. Please drive responsibly. Thanks GammaRays134 SOURCES Video courtesy of NHTSA, NCAP and Calspan Crash Testing Center.

First 1/4 mile pass on my Turbo VMax
This was my first 1/4 mile run at Cordova Dragway last night. I was running against an 8.5 second bike, so I looked quite a bit slower (and I was) but I ended up running a 10.319 second pass at 136.34 mph. I made another run and lowered the tire pressure to 9 lbs and it HOOKED... a little too well. I wheelied it and the bike slammed down putting a hairline crack in the oil pan. Not too much damage, but it put me out for the night. I guess I should have put the wheelie bars on... maybe next time!





DUBSTEP Racing - 500hp Evo vs 505hp Corvette C6 Z06 - Skrillex Equinox
Version without music - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asNC2w2kjTk Silvertool Racing - Evo 8 2.3L 400whp vs Corvette C6 Z06 427 LS7 505hp 400whp on 93 octane pump gas, very conservative tune (it needs to be reliable since its a track toy/daily and my only car). This Evo is daily driven in all weather. It has full interior A/C P/S. This video shot on street tires (Dunlop Star Spec Z1's) I don't know who the driver of the Z06 was or what mods or tires he was running. Most likely stock power, track pads and maybe tires. If you were the driver of the Z thumbs up to you sir. Music (had to get creative do block out terrible windnoise) apologies to those who don't like the music: First of the Year (Equinox) - Skrillex (Dubstep) Video Description: For speed reference 135mph in the main straight before entry to turn 1. Slowest place on the track is turn 7 sharp right hander about 50mph. Most turns are taken between 65-90mph on street tires. For reference during these 3 chase laps laptimes were 1.5-2.0 seconds slower than my normal pace.

11 second DSM at the track inside cam & outside. 1992 Plymouth Laser RS-T AWD
my 92 plymouth laser, first time at the track with it. Been rushing fixing little things here and there, still realllllly needs a re-tune. First run, I spun all through 1st and got out of it and back into it. Second run was earlier in the night before it was so cold and the track was dewy, only a 1.8 60ft. Trap speeds are good for low-mid 11's for sure.. and the car has a ton more potential with a better tune, and a few changes here and there.





STL DSM Cruise, Firebird Roll Races Turbo Imports
Went on an Fbody Cruise back in February of 2008. Finally put these videos together. It was a fun cruise, had a lot of good races. My car seems to be even with everyone from those speeds since it just bogs down to 3rd gear right away.

AWD DSM GOING SIDEWAYS
Video by: eclipz http://www.youtube.com/user/eclipz Car has welded center diff so it doesn't like to turn very much as you can see. I built it to drag race but this track runs every Wednesday night for street cars and I just threw some crap wheels and tires on and go for fun.
