Detroit's White Castle Days Reunion 2010
http://www.castledays.com/ The white castle reunion is a get together
for all the back in the day and todays racers. The white castle in Detroit
at Livernois & Warren Ave. I'm the host of the reunion, but the castle Is
much bigger than just some cars getting together. A lot of racing history
started down at the white castle, this goes back to the 60's. My first time
down to the late night event was in 1972. I was only 10 years old and it
was after midnight on a friday night. after that night I was hot rod
hooked. Detroit's City Council needs to take part in this.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
Project 383 Stroker
Street legal, through the mufflers, on Mickey Thompson ET Street radials.

ECS Project ZR1 hits the Dragstip
ECS' Project ZR1 Heads to Englishtown NJs Raceway Park to lay down a couple
of baseline passes. The car is 100% stock with the exception of the rear
We didnt want to destroy a new set of factory tires, nor did we really
expect them to be able to hold the 560rwhp (stock) or the 590rwhp (tuned)
going down the track. So we opted to pull the factory carbon rotors and
giant calipers and swaped in a set of standard Corvette rear brakes so we
could utilize a 26/11.50/17 Mickey Thompson Et Street Radial.
This car put down a healthy 564 rwhp / 564 rwtq completely stock and once
tuned, 590 rwhp / 593 rwtq on our DynaPack. Stock the car went as low as
11.02 @ 127, and with a tune 10.78 @ 128.9!!!!
Not bad for a factory stock car!!!
Over the next few weeks this car will getting a number of upgrades... More
cooling, more Boost, and more
power.... this car will be featured in at least one magazine.... and
hopefully even more, so subscribe to my vids to see what develops!!!
