READ: This is the 'skateboard car' that Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Rob Dyrdek set world records for the longest rail slide, 50-50 grind, etc in. Link to that episode - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn-nGl5u7ZY
It is equipped with a skid plate on the bottom and various other modifications to that it could slide along the rail. If you haven't seen the episode of Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, I highly recommend watching it! I will try to put up a video link for it.

Larini Exhaust on Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera Rev and Acceleration
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera sounds amazing, but it sounds
even better when fitted with a Larini Exhaust like this one! This was filmed at the
2013 St. Louis European Autoshow. I apologize for my lack of posting
recently; I have been incredibly busy. More new content soon! Thanks for
watching! Please comment / like / subscribe and be sure to watch in HD!
Porsche 991 GT3 Acceleration
Finally saw the brand new Porsche 991 GT3 today at Cars & Coffee Irvine..I
really like it. It looks great and sounds amazing too; this is coming from
a guy who does not much like Porsches. Thoughts?
Flowmaster and K&N Modified 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L Hemi
2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L Hemi V8 modified with a Flowmaster Super 44
Muffler and a K&N 63 Series Cold Air Intake. I love the muffler, sounds
great inside and awesome outside (sets off car alarms!). The interior drone
isn't horrid, but is pretty loud on the highway between 1700-2300 RPM. The
CAI sounds awesome and made a noticeable performance improvement, as well
as increased my fuel economy. I highly suggest them both! Let me know if
you have any questions.
Lethal Performance - Vaughn Gittin, Jr. drifts our new 2012 Boss 302 Mustang
We headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway here in West Palm Beach,
FL to meet up with Steve Turner of 5.0 Magazine at Round 3 of the Formula
Drift series. While we were there, we decided to hand the keys to our new
2012 Boss 302 Mustang over
to 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. We've only had the car
for 1 week and are just shy of the 1000-mile mark, so what better way to
break it in than to have the powerhouse drifter take it around the course a
Lethal Performance sends a HUGE thank you to Steve Turner of 5.0 Magazine,
Susan Pollack of Palm Beach International Raceway, Satcher Motor Company,
Monster Energy drinks and, of course, Vaughn Gittin, Jr.
When we purchased our Boss a lot of our fans wanted to see something out of
the car other than 1/4 mile runs. Although we're going to have to take the
car down the track I was definitely open for a change. Some mentioned the
road course and a few mentioned drifting.
Well this afternoon we broke our car in the way it should be done. We
headed up to Palm Beach International Raceway in Palm Beach Gardens FL to
meet up with 5.0 Mustang &
Super Ford Magazine editor Steve Turner. He was there covering the Formula
Drift event that's going to take place at the track this weekend. Not only
was he there to cover the event but he was also there for a photoshoot with
none other than 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr.
Funny thing is that on the way up there I noticed a black Ford Fusion
behind us in my rear view mirror. The guy driving was wearing a Monster
Energy hat. It crossed my mind that it was Vaughn but I didn't think any
further of it. As we're on the Bee Line Hwy not far from the track the
Fusion passes us and Christy says to me that she thought that it was Vaughn
that just passed us. So I pulled up aside them and sure enough it was him
and his fiance Abigail on the way to the track. They looked over and gave
the thumbs up to us in the Boss and we did the same to them. We get to the
track and make our way to the pits. We finally get to the area where
Vaughn's trailer and car was and parked the Boss. Within a minute of us
getting out Vaughn came over to us, introduced himself and we hit it off
right away. Abigail came over too and we all stared chatting. Steve Turner
then shows up and we all start talking cars and having a great time.
Rewind a bit...Before going up there I had this crazy idea that I ran by
Steve which was to see if we could get Vaughn to take our Boss for a drift.
Being that I've never met Vaughn before and the fact they were just setting
up for the event I had no idea if something like that was even possible. So
I called our good friend Susan Pollack who's the director of communications
at PBIR and asked her if she could arrange for us to use a section of the
track. She said as long as Vaughn was cool with it why not.
So as we're standing there chatting I asked Vaughn if he wanted to thrash
on our new Boss for a few. Without hesitation he said sure. He asked me
what we wanted him to do with it and I told him to drive it like it was
his. He replied with something to the effect of " You sure you want me to
do that" and laughed.
It's on!! He goes and grabs his helmet and asks me if I want to ride with
him. Without him needing to twist my arm I said yes and he grabbed another
helmet for me. Now I'm in the Boss with Vaughn driving and we're following
Susan, Christy and Steve in their car around the road course to the area of
the track that she cleared for us.
At this point I've got a shit eating grin from ear to ear. I couldn't
believe this was happening. We take off and enter the turn at 60mph and
we're drifting. The tires are spinning, smoke is everywhere and the G's are
pulling me. He's feathering the throttle to keep the car aligned as it
swings around the turn. I'm on another planet at this point. The grin is
still there. Turn around and head back to the turn. This time at 80mph..
Same thing. Smoke, sliding, tire spinning and we're having a blast. All the
time Vaughn was super cool and I felt like I was hanging with one of my
good friends. He made it seem so easy. After my ride was done he took
Christy for a spin as well and she was even more excited then me as she's a
HUGE fan of his.
We wrap the drifting up and head back to the pits. Vaughn has to get to a
drivers meeting so we said our good bye's and made plans to see each other
at the event this weekend.
All I can say is WOW!!! What an amazing afternoon. The Boss handled and
performed great. Vaughn Gittin Jr. is an awesome dude and I'm so stoked
that I not only for to meet him but drift with him in my own car. For this
I am thankful. Major thanks to Vaughn Gittin Jr. his fiance Abigail, Steve
Turner of 5.0 Mustang &
Super Fords Magazine, Palm Beach International Raceway, Susan Pollack,
Christy High for being such an awesome and enthusiastic employee and Ford
for blessing us with the Boss!!

DC SHOES: Ken Block's Gymkhana THREE, Part 2; Ultimate Playground; l'Autodrome, France
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l'Autodrome de Linas
--Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as
steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most
NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking
proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the
stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers
