At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the
width of your index finger across each tire.
Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles
often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next
to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little
The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes
a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so
slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that
nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin.
Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into!
No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!

Cadillac XLR & XLR-V Fusion Exhaust by Billy Boat Performance Exhaust
Call to Order (888) 228-7435 or Order Online - http://www.bbExhaust.com/car/corvette/fusion/
(XLR page coming in April/May '13)
The luxury of a Cadillac, the performance of a Corvette and accurately
described by Harvey Schwartz on LACar.com as "A Corvette in Cadillac
Obviously, the XLR has settled into its own distinct niche (see forums like
xlr-net.com, where our Billy Boat XLR Fusion system is very well spoken
of--and this among the car's real enthusiasts).
Equipped with either the SC 4.4L (XLR-V) or the 4.6L (XLR) DOHC 32-Valve
Northstar V8 alum-alloy block & heads w VVT, the XLR exemplifies a
hard-charging, performance-bred, front-engine, transaxle-transferred, RWD
It's got swagger, style and stunning good looks.
It's like the Great Gatsby of Cadillacs.
It's so "have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too" American that the "Hemingway of
High-Performance Highway Horses" (Billy Boat) immediately identified with
it. It's a car for those who like to work hard for their luxury. And we've
developed a high-performance, hand-fabricated, stainless-steel Exhaust system that fits your XLR like a glove.
We've already perfected the FUSION Exhaust on all NPP (and have kits for non-NPP
vehicles) cars with our bi-modal Exhaust systems. Seriously, Google it. We strive
to maintain the best group of distributors and dealers all over the world.
You can call to order directly from us, or to clarify any questions you
have about our XLR system by using our toll-free number (888) 228-7435.
As an acclaimed U.S. manufacturer of performance Exhaust systems for Corvettes, it was
second-nature for Billy Boat to embrace an Exhaust mod for the LS6-inspired XLR Exhaust system. The XLR is based on the
Corvette's Y Platform, the XLR blazed onto the scene in 2004, immediately
nominated for North American Car of the Year. B&B has an Exhaust to fit your 2004-2009 Cadillac XLR.
The Billy Boat Fusion is a bi-modal Exhaust system, meaning it has two passages, or
modes, that the Exhaust can travel
through the muffler. Each of the mufflers has two outlets, with one side
having a butterfly-type valve which allows the Exhaust flow to be shut off, regulating which
side of the muffler the Exhaust flows
out of. One side of the muffler is the "quiet" side, and one side is the
"loud" side. The "quiet" side is a smaller, muffled and chambered tube,
while the "loud" side is 3" tubing straight through.
3000+hp TT Cadillac XLR vs 3000+hp TT Nova - Best 2 out of 3
Scott Lowery and 007 Cadillac are back, this time testing on 315 Radial
Tires for the first time, during the Radial Revenge Tour from Tulsa Raceway
Park. The Caddy features a Moran Racing Engines BIG Block with Twins that
makes well over 3000 horse power. In the other lane is Justin Martin in his
bad ass Twin turbo Nova from Oklahoma.
1909 Cadillac First Drive First Start in 79 Years
This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at
