Real Street Performance 547 WHP EVO X | DSPORT Magazine Feature Car
We here at DSPORT have always been a big fan of real street performance
cars. Cars that are built to perform both on and off the track. Chris's EVO
X is a testament to that in its street driveability and performance over
stock form. With 547whp, this car is a blast to drive on the street and the
track and with careful parts selection for his intended use this car is now
as reliable as a Nokia 9390. Ohio has delivered plenty of awesome EVO's to
the readers of DSPORT and this one is no different.
10 Reasons Why We Need To Stop Hating On FWD
Some people like RWD. Others like AWD. But some people are addicted to
front-wheel drive shenanigans. Is it a case of #FWDFTW?

"SNAPPY" by Jason Shaw (http://audionautix.com/index.html)
Buschur DSM Shootout 2013 Compilation Fri, Sat, and a lil of Sun
Video I took from my frist trip to the 21st Buschur Shootout in 2013,
unedited coverage from Friday show in Wakeman (missed the Dyno runs) and Friday night,
Saturday, and early Sunday runs. Didn't get to stay all day Sunday and
missed the best part because of the drive home but you can bet your ass I
will be off on Monday next year and not going to miss anything the whole
weekend. Again this is unedited and I just plugged all the footage I had
in and this is the result so parts of it may be boring and have a Honda or
two in it so I apologize in advance. Hopefully the few snips of antilag
being adjusted on one of the Magnus cars will make up for it. We had a
great time at the event and can't wait till next year to bring one of our
DSM's and get more involved in the fun. Thanks to all the new friends we
made and good to see the old KY DSM friends again! See ya next year!!!
BEST BURNOUT EVER! SUMMERNATS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD BURNOUT!
Summernats 26 broke a Guinness World Record for the most amount of cars in
simultaneous burnout on January 4, 2013 in Canberra, Australia. When the
massive blanket of smoke eventually cleared, Chris Sheedy from Guinness
World Records told the 10,000 plus crowd that exactly 69 cars had managed
to complete a 30 second burnout. Sixty nine. That's a 'Nats kind of number.
Drivers came from all across Australia to fry their tyres together in this
historic event, some traveling thousands of kilometres from Western
Australian and Northern Queensland to take part in the rare feat.
138 tyres x 30 seconds x over 35,000 horsepower = 1 world record.
Thank you to the drivers, staff and sponsors for making this incredible
The Burnout World Record, supporting the National Tobacco Campaign's MyQuit
Buddy QUIT SMOKING APP. Burn rubber, not tobacco.
Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
