The Smoking Tire heads out to Willow Springs International Raceway to test a friend's Mitsubishi Evo X, tuned by Road Race Engineering. Is the Evo quick enough to keep up with a Porsche 996 Cup Car? We'll see.....
BMW X6M: Ridiculous fast, and... ridiculous.
The Smoking Tire caps off our Ultimate BMW Road Trip with a private day at
BMW's test track in Spartanburg, SC. Since we've already tested the M3 and
1M, we take the X6M Crossover on the track to see if there is something
it's actually useful for. We are surprised.
Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for
trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it
possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the
limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys
from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.
What does a 1500HP Porsche Turbo feel like?
Matt is handed the keys to the Evolution Motorsport "Mayhem" 997 turbo and offered a single pull down the runway.
This is what it's like to make that pull with zero practice.

How good is a Supercharged Lamborghini Gallardo?
The Smoking Tire finds the best driving road in California and the best car
we've ever driven to tackle it: VF Engineering's all new Supercharged
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. With 760HP and 600 lb/ft of torque going
through all 4 wheels, this car redefines fast.
"The Myth" of Panama's 900 HP Evo - /TUNED
It's the rainy season in Panama, and that means if we want to go fast,
we're gonna need some AWD performance. Fortunately, we've got the keys to
Race Lab's 900 HP Mitsubishi Evolution 7. Now if we can just find somewhere
to run it....
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch

Wanna see more of this Evo? Check it out on the Dyno!-https://www.youtube.com/wa
Tuned by Chris Carbee of SloPoke Racing, I get the chance to drive and
shoot the Evo X of Virginia Beach known as "Nessa." Belonging to my good
friend Sean Khadaran, this Evo currently makes 530 WHP and will make 600+
by this weekend. The setup is good for 1000 WHP! After driving the evil Evo
8 Jasmine the day before, this was a much more laid back shoot. Thanks to
Sean so much for letting me drive his beautiful Evo X, and thank all of you

Mitsubishi EVO X - Tuned - Road Test with Great Sound
This 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X was tuned by Mike Welch at Road
Race Engineering and I was lucky enough to get the keys and have at it for
a day of canyon carving.
I have never driven an all wheel drive car on the street and this
experience has completely changed my perception of this type of vehicle.
The perfect balance of the chassis combined with just enough power to make
the scenery turn into a blur made me an absolute believer in the turbo AWD platform.
Check out the video and enjoy the sights and great sounds of this vehicle
in the scenic mountains north of Los Angeles.
Don't forget to subscribe and share this video and ... Thanks for watching!
Evo X vs. BMW M3 Street Race

even keep up. We hit about 130 MPH.
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Ryan Gates's 311RS - or - How to Make a Better Evo -- /TUNED
The Mitsubishi Evo X is a great performer for the enthusiast on a budget,
thanks to its very smart drivetrain. On top of that drivetrain sits an
utterly terrible tin can of a body and an interior that seems to come with
the chassis for free. Enter racer Ryan Gates. He's been competing in Evo's
for years, and decided that he wants to build a better Evo. So he's
improved just about everything on the car. We try to do a full test of it
at Monticello Motor Club, but it doesn't exactly go as planned. Is the
311RS the best Evo money can buy? We try to find out.
Hennessey Venom GT: The World's Fastest Tuned Car - /TUNED
