FP Black Evo IX (Testing GoPro before track event)
I decided to test out my friends GoPro before my private track rental.
Mods are basic boltons with FP Black turbo and FP4R cams tuned to 34psi (E85)on stock
block/stock head. There are many things to nit pick in the video but it
was a test shoot for placement of the camera so it is what it is. Sorry
for the lack of editing as well. Enjoy

Gramps the 11 Second Car - Build Part 1
The Gramps build begins - NEW EPISODE EVERY DAY THIS WEEK!
Got a question about the build? The forum has a dedicated thread here:
Get behind MCM and show the world that you DIY with mad stuff from the MCM
Facebook for daily updates!
Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

Motorcycle Hits Deer @ 85 mph | Helmet Cam
ANALYSIS & Damage Assessment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQRv1H9_v4A
I hit a buck (had 2+ in. antlers) on my 04 GSXR 1000 on June 28, 2009.
I did not crash, but the bike was totaled. It literally jumped right in
front of me and I had no time to react! In the analysis (link above), you
can see the deer was only on cam for 6 frames which is 6/30 or 1/5 of a
sec! Therefore, speed had nothing to do with impact.
Factors to consider (in debatable order of importance):
1. Speed: a) at speed limit would only have had .5 sec to react b) going faster *I* would have evaded... could
have hit someone else
2. Momentum: a) accelerating out of the corner b) not enough time to let
3. Angle: Bike was almost all the way leaned over
4. Deer mid-air: a) less resistance b) not high enough to knock me off and
kill me instantly
5. Deer impact location: Only hit neck, not body
6. Deer angle: Jumped from -right- side while I was leaning -right- into it
7. Deer weight: a) approx. 100 lbs (45 kg) b) not fully
grown buck yet
8. Ride position: Usually hang off bike, but was taking it easy
9. Frame sliders: Protected leg from tearing off
10. Exhaust: OEM (not shorty)
prevented carcass from hitting rear wheel
11. Post impact: No car in oncoming lane
12. Wobbles: Violent steering caused front wheel to lift off ground
13. Bars: a) throttle hand came off b) if left hand came off... whiiiskey
14. Corner: Caught bars and dropped front just in time to turn, avoiding
15. Full gear: Deer brushed knee- no injury
16. Camera angle: a) cam tilted too low b) if normal, impact wouldn't be
17. Rider behind: a) avoided spinning deer in approx 1 second
b) didn't swerve
18. # of riders: 10 approx 1-10 secs ahead and 5 approx 1-10 secs behind
19. Following distance: Deer jumped in between 2 riders
20. TIME UNPREDICTABLE: a) time the deer jumped b) time i was there that
I rode the bike for another 45 mins until I had to shut it off to prevent
engine damage because the radiator was busted. I survived without a
scratch. The deer was still in mid air as it's neck/shoulder was sliced by
my right fork and brake rotor. Then it busted my frame slider all the way
back, brushed my knee (leaving fur in the velcro), and flung off the Exhaust, when it made like a top and spun
to the other side of the road, leaving a blood trail over 50 ft. The 2
lines of blood keep intersecting, which show how much the deer spun.
Lastly, I want to mention that my right is a wide open field. There's 1/4
mile before woods. Deer heard us coming at least 10-20 secs before the
first rider passed. If it did not hear us coming from miles away, then it
had to have seen the other bikes go by. It tried to go between us... This
stray deer ignored all instincts! Freak accident and nothing else! If you
think slower speed would have avoided impact, then watch the analysis. If I
was going faster, I would have
avoided it entirely and the guy behind me could have hit it too.
Am I lucky I didn't die or am I unlucky this shit happened? Many things in
life cannot be controlled...like cancer. If you try to figure out why it
happened, you'll never get anywhere. Don't ask why, don't let it affect
your outlook on life, just try to keep calm and carry on!

Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! - Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six
speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on
Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet
gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take,
as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this
latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a
2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT
ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the
breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest
Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova"
Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear
The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and
a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass.
It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from
High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim
Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup
with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction
Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like
stock VW Bug tires.
The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With
a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers
from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI
controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of
torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country
trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The
key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive
trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car
uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a
Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
