Twin Turbo Diesel AWD Motorcycle (Bike & Builder episode 2)
Twin turbo Diesel AWD Motorcycle (Bike & Builder episode 2) Thanks to Sam for the interview and clips of his build! More bike films at http://www.choppertown.com/motorcycle-movie-downloads/ My name is Sam Turner, I am from Atlanta, Georgia. I currently am a Diesel Technician for the United States Postal Service. When I was about 12 years old my father taught me how to use a welder, and ever since then I have been building whatever has popped in my mind. My first motorcycle was when I was 8, my father fixed up an old 70ish model Honda 50cc minibike. from there I worked my way up to a Honda 110, then a Yamaha RT180. I knew I wanted to use the 840cc V-twin diesel engine for my power plant, and figured that to keep it symmetrical looking, the only way to go was Twin-turbo. I tossed around the idea of double CVT’s, and a Hossack front suspension. but it seemed still too mild. then the idea of Diesel electric popped up, similar to a Diesel locomotive where my engine powered a generator, then the generator could use electricity to spin a wheel motor. This is where the idea of AWD became possible. After researching the generator and wheel motors that would be capable of moving this bike, I decided against it because the costs were insanely high. Even though the diesel electric part of the build was shot down, I still wanted to try to do anything I could to keep the AWD aspect. That is when I stumbled across the idea of using hydrostatic drive. It would act basically the same way as a diesel electric, but at a fraction of the cost. I picked out a hydraulic pump and 2 hub motors, and because the hub motors are designed to only be supported on one side, I needed to design a single sided suspension for the bike. Once I drew up the idea for the suspension I saw that it would be very easy to install air bags so that the bike did not need a kick stand. At this point I began to lay all the pieces out in my garage, and once the engine, air bags, suspension and tires were lined up, the bike was over 11ft long. At 11ft long I did not want to have goofy looking long handle bars, or have to awkwardly have to stretch out over the backbone of the bike to reach the bars so I ended up building Double push pull cables that would connect the front spindle all the way to the back of the bike where the pivot point of the handle bars were. I ended up using the same setup for my hydraulic reservoir, as Triumph used for oil in the TR650. the backbone of the bike is a 4in hollow tube that stores 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid, thus eliminating the need for a bulky storage tank. Hydrostatic systems generate a lot of heat, so I installed two oil coolers on the side of the bike and fabricated two hood scoops to help re-direct the air through the cooler. I installed two 2.5 gallon air tanks on the side of the bike, and welded cones and fins on them to give them the appearance of bombs. At this point the bike started to look like some type of military experiment, so I decided to run with that theme. I installed 31x10.5 off-road tires, a heat shield down the reservoir that looked like a gun heat shied, Cross hairs on the backbone. a 2.5 gallon jerry can for a fuel tank, a 5.56 ammo can for a battery box, and painted the bike frame truck bed liner black, and the body panels Olive Drab Green.

TWIN TURBO MUSTANG VS THE WORLD
Twin turbo Mustang goes out for a night of fun on low Boost. Found an Infiniti G37 , c5 Z06 Corvette , Nitrous Camaro and a 350z. Going back to Mexico to find some higher HP cars ;) need to lose one so we have a reason to turn it up! Follow / add on Facebook ! https://www.facebook.com/Neverstoppulling
2400hp Unicorn Vette!
If you haven’t seen pictures or videos of this CRAZY corvette, you must have been living under a rock! We finally had the chance to see what it’s all about at this fall’s Texas Invitational, and we were NOT disappointed! Equipped with two MONSTER 88mm turbos that both stick out of the hood, and an additional 400 shot of Nitrous..it’s easy to understand this car’s biggest problem is TRACTION. Since the car was originally built and set-up for drag racing, it had some inevitable traction problems that will likely be sorted out once they have an opportunity to adjust the suspension for roll-racing. Maybe then, we will see the 200 mph pass we were looking for!!
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs. 2016 Dodge Viper ACR - Head 2 Head Ep. 72
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack, take a ride along with Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman as our two hosts try to figure out which absolutely bonkers supercar is the best. Both the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the Dodge Viper ACR make more horsepower than almost any other cars on earth. The two also feature levels of grip only seen on racecars. Speaking of racing, Jason and Jonny bring along a friend – racing pro and SCCA Hall of Famer Randy Pobst – to see how these two handle on the famous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Records will fall, tires will smoke, and ears will bleed, as these two monsters are completely unleashed. Which one is best? You’ll have to watch and find out!
