Tank Smashes Prius! Toyota Prius Battles AMC Gremlin & Suffers Crushing Defeat - Roadkill Ep. 17
On this episode of Roadkill, a tank squashes a Prius to smithereens! It
runs over that junk without even noticing. That's all you really need to
know about this episode of Roadkill, but if you jump straight to the tank
carnage you'll miss a bunch of cool stuff. Like when Freiburger and
Finnegan attempt a shootout between a Toyota Prius hybrid and a '75 AMC
Gremlin, trying to prove that the Gremmie is more of a greenie. It was all
fun and games until the Prius engine let go on the race track in a ball of
flame. Because Roadkill. After that, you've gotta see the guys once again
embrace their own Kryptonite: flat-towing. Yup, as it turns out, dragging a
dead Prius with a lighter, smaller Gremlin ends real badly. But in the end,
the Prius is wafer thin and the Gremlin's still on the road. Still want to
jump right to the tank smash? Don't be that guy.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

2004 Toyota Matrix Radio Upgrade
Matrix Radio Install.wmv - uploaded 123013 - As a favor to a long time
friend of MACS, I offered to help retrieve some CDs that were "stuck" in
the stock radio's 6 disc changer. Sure, no problem, I thought. Actually,
it was pretty easy to get the CDs out of the old radio. Since it was
broken anyway, finesse was not required. But, as it usually goes with jobs
like these, the statement was made "I wish there was some way to get that
fixed so the CD would work". As you could imagine, those few innocent
words opened a can of Radio Upgrade Worms that lead to two full days of
work, two trips to Best Buy (one to the big box store by the mall, the
other to their website) and a few wrong parts that still need to be
returned at the store. Ultimately, things worked out great. The
replacement radio works like a charm, and will hopefully provide many miles
of audio entertainment. Plus, it all lead to the best part of all... THIS
YOUTUBE VIDEO!!!!! 2 Hour job, played for you in Fast Forward. Mostly at
4x speed, some parts at 8x speed.

Matrix XRS Hushpower dBx Exhaust REVS
Toyota Matrix XRS with Flowmaster Hushpower dBx muffler. 2" pipe exiting
out a 4" double wall stainless tip. No drone, barely makes a sound at idle
but when ya open her up nothing but deep goodness w/o the tinny rice sound.
Would recommend muffler on ANY import. Goes to show Flowmaster knows what
they are doing!
