Remember back in the day when us nerdy folks (myself included) used to watch Captain Kirk and his crew of the starship enterprise (We’re talking William Shatner Kirk) and think to ourselves “WOW if only we had those technologies in real life it would make things so much easier”. The most classic example are these handheld gadgets, ridiculously high tech, that can show a live image of another human being from thousands of miles away and that you can talk to, and miraculously they can hear your voice and talk back to you!!!! OMG that’s just insane people. I believe in the show they called these “communicators” today they are known as IPhones, Galaxy Note/S, Android, etc etc. Here is a great link to some other Trekkie Realities that came true, it’s a great read :
When it comes to comparing high powered cars against each other, there are no better YouTube channels than the boys at M5board and dragtimesinfo.
They both perform their races in different ways, to be more specific M5board uses rolling starts from 50 KPH and dragtimes prefers the off the line approach where technology such as launch control and human driving skill greatly effect the outcome of the race.
I myself and a bigger fan of M5baord for the simple fact that it eliminates silly technologies such as launch control and pits car against each other with raw power/weight/transmission determine what car is supreme in straight line performance. We are not just talking 50-150 we are talking 50-300 KPH races! Here are a couple of my favourite M5board races, starting with two of the most modern hyper cars in 2014 the Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador:
I used a 10 megapixel digital camera, duct tape to keep the camera relatively still (you can hear the tape try to hold the camera during accelerations haha!!) and no script. Just a night with a mazdaspeed3 and my love for cars.
So listen up!! If any amateurs out there love to film and make car videos call me!! I think with a bit of script and practice it would be a fun little adventure! Enjoy my passion, and I really appreciate the views. I know it’s kinda lame but so what.
For the Women….I mean car lover….ahhhh whatever just watch this and enjoy.
Ok people, let’s start talking about something that matters. The biggest misconception for the average buyer (even those who think they are well informed) is that the newest vehicle, with the least amount of miles for a specific price range is the most important thing when it comes to getting the best car for their money. That’s the stupidest, biggest bull %&!@ thing I have ever heard and to all those out there who don’t care about the time they wasted at their careers to earn their hard earned income only to be spent on garbage, ignore this post all together and send me hate mail. (seems rhetorical, I think most people care about the time and effort they spent to make money).
To those who actually care, please read on and simply hear me out. Or to make things easier go and read my “You paid 50000$ for your Ford?!?! Should have bought that Porsche” post. Sure I use “50000$” and “Porsche” which may scare people, but that’s far from the point I am trying to make. The point is that cars are the biggest depreciating assets out there and people should be taking advantage of this by getting themselves the best of the best for whatever they have to spend, and for most buyers 10000$ is very reasonable, easy to finance, and also a great dollar figure to work with period.
Motortrend is arguably the leading automotive journalist magazines in all of north america when it comes to their videos. The content is entertaining, the journalists are very well informed and interesting to watch, and the cars they have are among the best. Here are their 3 greatest drag race videos!
I gotta say tho, worst style for journalists I have ever seen haha!! Pardon my obvious observation.
Cheers and enjoy these amazing videos courtesy of Motortrends Team!
I love Tiff in this video, my first Ferrari goal I want to achieve in my life time at some point. Enjoy this video :)
Live to Drive!
