Motorhome Mashup Part 2: Monster Go-Kart Challenge! - Dirt Every Day Ep. 28
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred picks up the pieces after the
destruction in the last episode. Now, the real chaos begins as Fred
Williams attempts to take the frame of a 1986 Pace Arrow motorhome and
transform it into a giant go-kart. Fred calls on the engineering assistance
of his friend Frank and the Poly Goats Off Road Club to finish this
big-block powered monster go cart. To test whether it stands up against the
regular sized go-kart, they head out to the dirt for a head to head battle
of wits, agility, and power. Tune in to see who comes out on top!
Dirt Every Day appears every fourth Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

want to practice drifting on this car on GT5!

Lexus LFA Clears It's Throat, And Gets BUSTED...
Well you wanted more of the Lexus LFA, I was asked by many if I could get
video of the LFA's launch control, more reving, and faster driving, so that's what we did. Got
it to 168MPH!
We also paid for it also by getting pulled over and slapped with a pretty
hefty ticket. But.. It still turned out to be a fun day. Think the driver
will get the ticket lowered in court?
Elattrache Photography was also there for the filming and he got some
AMAZING photos of the LFA.
I highly recommend you check out his photos at

Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition sets lap time of 7:14
We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it
using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run
production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run
of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a
re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is
powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the
standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs
an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds
and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for
production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe
stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for
man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many
in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach
acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km
Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng
