video://www.metacafe.com/watch/1780616/diy_rusted_nuts_and_bolts_come_loose_easily/

I am sure many of you encounter situations where your nuts or bolts stay on the rim, causing you to accidently break it off.  Now, if you ever get those hard-to-remove nuts whether from rust or whatnot, you can use this method of heating wax with propane gas near the nuts and bolts to get them totally loosened.

I’ve personally broken a rim stud before, and needless to say, I wish I had known how to do this back then.

I have a trick that has been around for a long time. This is a t

DIY Ariel Atom made from Junk!

Here’s a really cool lookin’ car made from junk parts while it does 4.5 seconds 0 to 60MPH and gets 35+MPG!

This is the final result of 15 months and at least 800 hours of work in the garage. This is not counting time spent designing, ordering parts, negotiating prices, etc.

The car was built from scratch. The engine is an Acura k20a3 from an RSX. It sounds awesome.

Special thanks for the Make community for inspiring the maker spirit in me. Building stuff yourself is a much better way to be a citizen than senseless consump

Here’s a cool way you can make your car smell better while not having to spend more money.

It’s a DIY on how to make your own natural car air freshener out of old clothing and smelly perfumes you have.

Great idea, isn’t it?  At times like this where U.S. economy is failing miserably (probably mostly due to miserable failure), we need to save every dollar we can or at least learn to re-use or re-make.

First you need some old fabric. Think about th

Rice Rocket – Fancied Up Hyundai Genesis!

Hyundai hasn’t been known in the States for their awesome performance cars, mostly due to the fact that only “cheap” Hyundai cars have been exported.

As of lately, they have started shipping higher performance cars like the Hyundai Genesis, boasting up to 375 horsepower on factory engine.

Above is a fixed up version of the Hyundai Genesis with air intake, Brembo brakes, and 19-inch rims.

I do like it a lot except I would much prefer a turbo and a front cool-air intercooler instead

Audi and Germany’s Travolution System lets you Predict when the Light will turn Green!

Presumably using RFID, sensors, and other neat things, these test Audi cars in Germany will be able to count down every stoplight they encounter.

I think this is a really great idea so people can rest their eyes a little bit more at stoplights.

On the other hand, I think it could also cause more accidents since people “know” when the light will turn green.

It’s a good thing this will be implemented in Germany and when the

Mercedes-Benz S400 BlueHYBRID gets 29MPG!

Mercedes unveils their new S400 BlueHybrid, which sports a V6 engine and supposedly would get 29MPG.

It’s not a great feat for a hybrid car, I think they have to at least get somewhere around 35MPG otherwise it’s not worth going “hybrid” here.

The V6 produces 279 horsepower and can be aided by the electric motor during acceleration with an additional 20 horsepower and 88 lb-ft of torque, giving the drivetrain a combined torque output of 285 lb-ft and what MB calls an electric “boost” effect. Like most hybr
