Andy's Muddy Hole (no homo)
If you like the video, Please click on one of the ads, Thanks!
My buddy Andy gets his '08 Dodge Powerwagon un-stuck from a clay-filled
mud-hole. Ford used as an anchor-point for the Powerwagon's built in winch.
He is Feathering the throttle, NOT BOUNCING OFF THE LIMITER, so don't post
dumb comments about his motor blowing up or "engine damage" because they
will be deleted!
Camaro puts aggressive Acura back in its place
100% stock (right down to the paper air filter) 1993 LT1 powered Camaro automatic, out for a
cruise after a couple base Dyno pulls, and ran into an
Acura Integra with a few bolt-on mods... The Acura fellas started it,
lol... actually chatted with the Teggy fellas after, and they were really
cool guys, so don't bash 'em... The first thing they asked us was, "man,
whatcha got done to that thing?..." and they were a bit shocked when we
replied that it was just a stock Camaro LT1 version and not the
more powerful LS1 model. I don't think they had ever messed around with a
V8 engined Z28 before.
"Surely a Domestic VS Import war will start from this video... but it is
what it is, and mature and true car enthusiasts know this and appreciate
all cars for what they are. Anything can by made FAST if you have the
bucks, but don't race an American Performance car with an economy run-about
and get mad when it loses" and cry about it in the comments... A V8 powered
Camaro is supposed to
beat an economy car, unless of course you don't have a mortgage or kids, or
live in your Mothers basement, or have dropped 10 grand in it...LOL!!!

Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in
