2004 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG , 2004 mercedes E55 drag racing at racelegal.com 11-18-2011 qualcom stadium on the four lane drag strip on the 1.8 mile the day before the aztec game. This mercedes makes many passes up and down the strip. 37 plymouth vs mereceds, plymouth duster vs mercedes.
What makes this an "AMG" is the hand-crafted, supercharged V-8 under the hood. That incredible engine produces a mind-blowing 469 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. It's enough to rocket the E55 from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds! It's enough to run a quarter-mile in mid-12s. It's so fierce that full-bore acceleration from a standstill gave me a headache. Felt like I'd bitten into an ice cream cone. Zowee! And if you're cruising at 75 on the interstate, you have that same rush of power just a toe-tap away. This car passes with fervor possessed by few. A magazine recently tested the fastest production cars and the E55 AMG was one of the top eight. Fastest was a race car, so throw that one out. The rest were 2-seat sports cars, some with near-zero practicality. None could carry five in comfort. No, the E55 is unique. It is the world's fastest, finest sports sedan. Flip on cruise control and a radar beam measures distance to vehicles ahead. The car accelerates and brakes as needed in traffic. Even in fast, heavy traffic, it was superb; an electronic stability program is working all the time to keep you out of an accident by adjusting engine power and braking as needed. And the brakes are the biggest, strongest I've yet encountered
Volkswagen beetle drag racing Racelegal.com 11-18-2011

drag racing at qualcom stadium.
In 1971, alongside continued production of the "standard" Beetle, a Type 1
variant which featured MacPherson strut front suspension and a redesigned
front end. Officially known (and marketed in Europe) as the VW 1302 from
1971 to 1972, and VW 1303 from 1973 onwards, but commonly called Super
Beetle, the new stretched nose design replaced the dual parallel torsion
bar beams which had compromised trunk space and relocated the spare tire
from a near vertical to a low horizontal position. The redesign resulted in
a tighter turning radius despite a 20 mm (0.79 in) longer wheelbase, and a
doubling of the front compartment's cargo volume. As with previous models,
air pressure from the spare tire pressurized the windshield washer
canister, in lieu of an electric pump.
1972 Super Beetles had an 11% larger rear window (4 mm (0.16 in) taller),
larger front brakes, four rows of vents (versus two rows previously) on the
engine deck lid, tail lights incorporating reverse lights, a four-spoke
energy-absorbing steering wheel and steering column, and an engine
compartment socket for a proprietary VW Diagnosis system.
In 1973, the VW 1303 introduced a curved windscreen, pushed forward and
away from the passengers, allowing a redesigned, padded dashboard to
replace the pre-1973 vertical dash. A 2-speed heater fan, higher rear
mudguards, and larger tail lights were added. The changes to the
heater/windshield wiper housing and curved windshield resulted in slight
redesign of the front hood, making the 1971 and 1972 Super Beetle hoods
For 1974, the previous flat steel bumper mounting brackets were replaced
with tubular "self restoring energy absorbing" attachments, effectively
shock absorbers for the bumpers, on North American market Beetles. These
cars also got stronger "5 mph" bumpers that added an inch to the length of
the car. The steering knuckle and consequently the lower attachment point
of the strut was redesigned to improve handling and stability in the event
of a tire blowout. This means struts from pre-1974 Super Beetles are not
interchangeable with 1974--79s.
1975 models featured Air Flow Control (AFC) Fuel Injection on U.S.,
Canadian, and Japanese Beetles, a derivative of the more complex Bosch fuel
injection system used in the Volkswagen Type III -- and equivalent to Bosch
L-jetronic. The fuel injected engine also received a new muffler and the
option of an upstream catalytic converter required on some models (e.g.
California), necessitating a bulge in the rear apron sheet metal directly
under the rear bumper, and replacing the distinctive dual "pea shooter"
pipes with a single offset tailpipe -- making fuel injected models
identifiable at a glance. Other changes were rack and pinion steering
replacing the traditional worm and roller gearbox on Super Beetles, and a
larger license plate lamp housing below the engine lid. The front turn
indicators were moved from the top of the fenders into the bumper bars on
In 1976, the optional "Auto-stick" transmission and the Super Beetle sedan
were discontinued, with VW continuing to market the standard sedan and VW
1303 convertible. 1976-on convertibles received no significant engineering
changes, only a few cosmetic touches and new paint options, including the
"Champagne Edition" models (white on white was one example) to the final
1979 "Epilogue Edition" black on black, in salute to the first Beetles
produced in the 1930s. 1977 model sedans received front seats with separate

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

1998 Dodge Ram Cummins Drag Racing Racelegal.com 11-18-2011
Always a fun truck to watch all the black smoke and four wheel drive going
down the 1/8 mile drag strip
The Ram line was redesigned for 1994. The exterior styling was the result
of design concepts by chief designer Phillip E. Payne, plus extensive
customer research that revealed that full-sized pickup buyers were enamored
of a strong exterior design that suggested the "look of a big rig
truck". Dodge Truck Product Planners recognized that while some
customers would not identify with the unique design, it would mandate
instant recognition for the new Dodge full-sized pickup. It featured a big
rig-looking front end and a large grille and was nothing like the current
Ford or Chevy/GMC pickup in design. Engine offerings continued over from
the first-generation Ram and were the 3.9 L V6, 5.2 L V8, 5.9 L V8, and 5.9
L I6 Cummins turbo diesel. Added to the
line up was a new 488 cubic inch 8.0L V10 engine designed as an alternative
for those who wanted superior pulling power but didn't want a diesel. The
new V10 and Cummins turbo diesel could
only be had in the 2500 and higher designation models. Models were now the
1500 half-ton, 2500 three quarter-ton, and 3500 dual rear wheel one-ton in
both 2 and 4 wheel drive. 1500 Rams offered both 6 and 8-foot (1.8 x 2.4 m)
boxes. 2500 Rams offered 6-foot (1.8 m) boxes only with quad cabs. 3500
Rams were only made with 8-foot (2.4 m) boxes.
Dodge offered the 2500 series in two different gross-vehicle weight ratings
for the first few years but this was dropped in the late 1990s. The purpose
of the light duty and heavy duty 2500 trucks were for the heavy duty 2500
to take the place of the discontinued one ton single rear wheel trucks.
On the inside, special attention was paid to in-cab storage features, with
a large glovebox, a center armrest storage area, and extra storage space
behind the seat. The dash and gauge cluster were a far cry from the
previous model Ram and was far more modern as well. A redesign of the
dashboard and instrument cluster was made in 1998 along with the
introduction of the quad cab, and rounded black plastic side-view mirrors
replaced the previous rectangular design. The 2000 models saw the
introduction of heated leather seats.
In 1998, Dodge introduced the "Quad Cab", which used smaller suicide doors
in the back for a door opening. This was offered as an option on the "Club
Cab" for the model year. Other changes for 1998 included rounded mirrors
replacing the classic square ones, a revised interior, dual depowered
airbags, and a chime replacing the buzzer for seat belts/door
In 1999, Dodge revised the front end for the Sport models with a restyled
bumper, quad-beam clear-lens headlamps, and body-color grille.
The redesigned 1994 Ram was a sales success, with sales rocketing from
100,000 units in 1993 to 240,000 in 1994, 280,000 in 1995, and nearly
400,000 in 1996. That year, it was prominently featured as the hero vehicle
in the film Twister. Sales of this generation peaked at just over 400,000
in 1999 before declining against the redesigned Ford and GM trucks. By
2001, Ram sales figures were below those of Ford and Chevy trucks.
Although Dodge introduced a new Ram 1500 for 2002, the old second
generation style Ram was carried over for the 2002 model year heavy-duty
2500 and 3500 trucks. The new third generation Ram would not appear in the
2500/3500 variants until 2003. Part of this delay was due to the then new
5.7 L Hemi engine not being ready for production.
