It's Monday, so Matt decides to do his two favorite things: drive on empty roads and ride roller coasters without waiting in line. We take the BMW 1M to California's finest empty roads to see what the hype is about. Check out Matt's cover story on Road Lanes Magazine here. www.RoadLanes.com/MattFarah
BMW X6M: Ridiculous fast, and... ridiculous.
The Smoking Tire caps off our Ultimate BMW Road Trip with a private day at
BMW's test track in Spartanburg, SC. Since we've already tested the M3 and
1M, we take the X6M Crossover on the track to see if there is something
it's actually useful for. We are surprised.
What happened when this Evo chased a Porsche?
The Smoking Tire heads out to Willow Springs International Raceway to test
a friend's Mitsubishi Evo X, tuned by Road Race Engineering. Is the Evo
quick enough to keep up with a Porsche 996 Cup Car? We'll see.....
Porsche Cayman R vs. BMW 1 Series M
The Porsche Cayman R is the final hurrah for the current generation of
Cayman's, so it should be the best, right? We pit it against our other
favorite midsized sports car, the BMW 1 Series M to find out how they stack
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.
BMW 1M Coupe Review (M3 Fighters Pt.2) - Everyday Driver
BMWs 1M Coupe was made from the BMW parts bin and only offered for one
year. It was often discussed as even better than the E90 series M3. The
guys love the M3, so they took this 1M to the canyons to see who's the
best. And afterward they debate if this car or the Boss 302 is the better

Art Morrison 3G 1960 Corvette
The Smoking Tire heads to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to test the
Gran Turismo Award-Winning SEMA car: Art Morrison's 1960 3G Corvette. It's
a $400,000 one-off work of art that begs to be driven hard.
Dodge Challenger SRT 392 Review
The Smoking Tire hits the canyons in the new and mostly improved Dodge
Challenger SRT 392. Are the recent updates to the Challenger enough to make
it a true sports car? Or is it still just a luxury cruiser?
Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for
trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it
possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the
limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys
from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.
How far can a diesel Audi go?
The Smoking Tire attempts to drive 550 miles from the Redondo Beach pier to
the Grand Canyon on a single tank of fuel in the Audi A3 TDI. We also
compare the A3 TDI's lap times at Adams Motorsports Park to our other hot
2011 Jaguar XKR 175 - The Best GT Car On Earth?
The Smoking Tire takes the Jaguar XKR 175 to a closed road in the middle of
the desert to test its performance capabilities when pushed to the limit.
Is this the best value in supercars ever? That's what we're going to find
Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI Review
We hold an open casting call for any driver wanting to test the new Audi R8
V10 5.2 FSI due to Matt Farah's busted knee. Many failed auditions later,
we found a temporary replacement, and were going to watch him try and keep
this Audi supercar on the road.
