Now that was funny, the Arab showed every body.

This next guy shows the Arab how's it really done, notice the red hot glowing exhaust.


My first car was not like this one but it was a 1972 corolla, that's where the similarities end.

Aussie hooners equalize the output in the Southern hemisphere too!



There goes my gas tank quota for the next month.

I wonder how many times those guys in the open buggies get smacked in the head with rocks and other flying debris? None of them even had glasses/goggles on!

Anyone can do a burnout, but this guy makes it interesting. Yes it's a commercial, but I will hazard a guess that he has done this a few times.

Ken Block is sooooo last Tuesday.

Drift economically. Drift diesel.


Better yet, it's a stock motor with simple bolt-ons.

Best bits at 1:34 and 2:30.

This video has long been my favorite. After you get tired of watching/listening, fast forward to 2:38.
I won't spoil it for you, but it's awesome.

I measure mine in gallons per hour. Its easier to figure out how much gas I'm going to use when we know a trail is going to take 2-3 hours.

If you look closely many of the rigs there were propane powered.
