AWD and that of the competition. The leader in All-Wheel Drive technology,
there are no other vehicles quite like Subaru. See for yourself right now!
"The Eagle Test Drive" featuring the 1996 Eagle Vision and Talon
Michael Brockman of Motor Trend fame explains how you the car shopper can
inspect and test drive a new car. Surprisingly it's not really about
plugging Eagle's cars, but rather what you should check for and test when
looking at new cars. Of course, all the things he mentions a good new car
should do and have are all things his Eagle Vision test car has and does...
Buschur Racing 350 EVO VS Eagle Talon TSI AWD
The last race of the night ended up being the best and what a way to end
This car is a Mitsubishi EVO. This car is no regular EVO, it has been
equipped with the Buschur Racing 350 package. Here is a little break down
from BR's website.
Power hungry? Then you're going to love this. Introducing the BR350
Evolution 8, brought to you by Buschur Racing and Medina Mitsubishi. Here
is a sedan that can blast to 60 mph in less that 4 seconds. If you think
the stock Evo 9 is impressive, you haven't seen anything yet—350 hp and
355 ftlb of torque. If you crave raw power, then the BR350 is for YOU!
Engine Type: Inline four cylinder
Displacement 122 cm3
hp at 6500 rpm
Torque: 355 ft lb at 3500 rpm
Speed 0-60 mph: 3.9 seconds
Speed 1/4 mile: 12.6 at 110 mph
Starting with an already impressive sedan the BR350 package propels the Evo
9 into super car status. This optional performance package will not only
drop your 0-60 mph times from 4.7 seconds to 3.9 seconds it will also drop
your ¼ mile times from 13.4 at 104 mph to an amazing 12.6 seconds at 110
mph! You will also lose some weight, taking an additional 55 pounds from
the cars already lightweight design. Impressed with the cars stock horsepower and torque
levels? How about an additional 74 horsepower and 74 foot
pounds of torque bringing the Evo 9 to 350 horsepower and 355 foot
pounds of torque! You'll find this is more than enough to take yourself and
4 of your friends to dinner......very quickly.
With the BR350 being the big brother to the BR330, of course means more
modifications and more bang for your buck. The following is a complete list
of the modifications done to the BR350.

All night I was having great success with my reaction times BUT I jumped
the gun on this one. Even though I red lighted, this was the closest and
most joyful run of the night.
I started out by jumping the gun :( Even though I got the jump on the BR
350 he quickly regained that ground and more. Looking at the time slip, the
EVO had me beat from the start by three tenths. I left the line 3 tenths
before the EVO and he caught up to me by the 60 foot!!!! This was a great
run and I only started making up ground on the top end but it was not
I hope that you enjoy this video and if the Owner of this car would like to
come back out to VMP, I would love a friendly rematch without a red light
on my behalf :)
SUPER POWERFUL Russian military off road 4WD Trucks
Russian military unveils new off road four wheel drive trucks. A truck
(United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, also called a lorry in
the United Kingdom and Ireland) is a motor vehicle designed to transport
cargo. Trucks vary greatly in size, power, and configuration, with the
smallest being mechanically similar to an automobile. Commercial trucks can
be very large and powerful, and may be configured to mount specialized
equipment, such as in the case of fire trucks and concrete mixers and
Modern trucks are largely powered by diesel engines exclusively, although
small to medium size trucks with gasoline engines exist in the US. In the
European Union, vehicles with a gross combination mass of up to 3,500
kilograms (7,716 lb) are known as light commercial vehicles, and those over
as large goods vehicles.
The oldest truck was built in 1896 by Gottlieb Daimler. The first truck
in the United States was built by Autocar in 1899 and was available with
optional 5 or 8 horsepower motors.
The word "truck" might come from a back-formation of "truckle" with the
meaning "small wheel", "pulley", from Middle English trokell, in turn from
Latin trochlea. Another explanation is that it comes from Latin trochus
with the meaning of "iron hoop". In turn, both go back to Greek trokhos
(τροχός) meaning "wheel" from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").
The first known usage of "truck" was in 1611 when it referred to the small
strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. In its extended usage it came to
refer to carts for carrying heavy loads, a meaning known since 1771. With
the meaning of "motor-powered load carrier", it has been in usage since
1930, shortened from "motor truck", which dates back to 1916.
"Lorry" has a more uncertain origin, but probably has its roots in the rail
transport industry, where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to
refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage, not a bogie as
in the American), specifically a large flat wagon. It probably derives from
the verb lurry (to pull, tug) of uncertain origin. With the meaning of
"self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods" it has been in usage since
Before that, the word "lorry" was used for a sort of big horse-drawn goods
In the United States, Canada, and the Philippines "truck" is usually
reserved for commercial vehicles larger than normal cars, and includes
pickups and other vehicles having an open load bed. In Australia, New
Zealand and South Africa, the word "truck" is mostly reserved for larger
vehicles; in Australia and New Zealand, a pickup truck is usually called a
ute (short for "utility"), while in South Africa it is called a bakkie
(Afrikaans: "small open container"). In the United Kingdom, India,
Malaysia, Singapore, Ireland and Hong Kong lorry is used instead of truck,
but only for the medium and heavy types.
In American English, the word "truck" is often preceded by a word
describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British
English these would be referred to as a "tanker" or "petrol tanker".
In Australia and New Zealand, the term ute (short for coupé utility) is
used to describe a pickup truck with an open cargo carrying space but a
front similar to a passenger car, and which requires only a passenger car
licence to drive. The concept was developed in 1933 by Lewis Bandt of the
Ford Motor Company in Geelong following a request from a Gippsland farmer's
wife for a vehicle that they could go to church in on Sunday without
getting wet and also use to take the pigs to market on Monday.
In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The
requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.
In Australia, a truck driver's license is required for any motor vehicle
with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) exceeding 4,500 kilograms (9,921 lb). The
motor vehicles classes are further expanded as:
LR: Light rigid: a rigid vehicle with a GVM of more than 4,500 kilograms
(9,921 lb) but not more than 8,000 kilograms (17,637 lb). Any towed trailer
must not weigh more than 9,000 kilograms (19,842 lb) GVM.
MR: Medium rigid: a rigid vehicle with 2 axles and a GVM of more than 8,000
kilograms (17,637 lb). Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9,000
kilograms (19,842 lb) GVM. Also includes vehicles in class LR.
HR: Heavy Rigid: a rigid vehicle with three or more axles and a GVM of more
than 8,000 kilograms (17,637 lb)). Any towed trailer must not weigh more
than 9,000 kilograms (19,842 lb)) GVM. Also includes articulated buses and
vehicles in class MR.
HC: Heavy Combination, a typical prime mover plus semi-trailer combination.
MC: Multi Combination e.g., B Doubles/road trains.
