GroupB Car Racing Video! [MUST SEE]

If you like hot girls and fast cars, (well just the fast cars part) and have about 11 minutes to watch a brain-chillin’ video of GroupB car racing, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK!

You know, there’s a reason people talk about Group B racing – and the drivers who participated in it – in practically hushed tones. After all, we’re currently in an era where motorsports news is just as likely to be about ever-more-restrictive regulatory efforts or the deranged hooker fantasies of the F1 illuminati as it is about, you know, racing. But during Group B’s brief, crazy tenur

Prius Hack – How to Add Exhaust Sound to a Prius!

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1CzoqEyACQ

Here’s a rather exciting Prius hack that involves adding “fake” exhaust sounds to a Prius.   Mind you, Prius may suck at going uphill but with the addition of this sound mod, you can still “fake” having a big, fat engine under the hood.  Perhaps this might be a new mod that could potentially be game-changing for those of you who pick up chics in your Prius. (or not?)

There’s many sounds available including a V8 or V12 engine, I would have to go with the roaring V12 if I ever get a Prius.

Best DC to AC Pocket Inverter Car Charger Review!

Duracell DC to AC inverter car charger is probably the best $30 I have spent plus it comes with a USB port for charging your USB gadgets such as an iPod.

I’ve done a road test a bunch of times, taking it with me on road trips to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and even now, I am actually blogging from my Eee PC netbook while its being charged via the Duracell inverter.

These inverters are the

Radar/Laser Detector DIY – How to Make a LIDAR Gun Simulator!

With advances in radar/laser detectors that can detect cops from miles away, police officers have been using radar/laser guns that are more sophisticated so they cannot be detected with some of the older radar/laser detectors.

By learning how to make a LIDAR gun simulator, you will be able to actually test whether your current radar/laser detector can detect them all, perhaps saving you some money in the future from getting tickets.

Of course, my advice is

Check out the Spirit of Berlin Autonomous iPhone-controlled van!  The van itself is controlled via an iPhone and through its WiFi connection to the van.  I think this touches upon the future of driving, perhaps moms and dads will be able to take their kids to school without actually driving.  Yey!

“Spirit of Berlin” is a project of the Artificial Intelligence Group, directed by Prof. Raul Rojas, at Freie Universitaet Berlin.

Subaru Trax Si – Fastest DIY Snow Car in the World?

Check out this awesome custom-built snowcar that goes practically faster than anything on snow I have ever seen.  Based one a Subaru, the Subaru Trax Si sports a funky wheel system (or cat tracks), this is the “ultimate” snowmobile of the year.  I am sure just driving this thing around the mountain is as fun as snowboarding.

It combines a two of my favorite things in life: driving a rally car in the snow and snowboarding in the powder in the backcountry. It’s incredibly fun having the ability to push the high-power Subaru on the slopes and to backcountry s

Autonomous Self Parking Car!

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVuG7HAt-r4

I’ve always been fond of new technology such as the self parking cars which have been around now for couple years.  I have to say though, I don’t think they can actually park the cars in super-tight spots like some here in San Francisco where sometimes it requires you to actually “bump” cars.

Do I really need to spend another $2000 on self parking car feature when I have learned how to do it myself over the 15+ years of driving in metropolitan cities?  No thanks robots, I will still park my big, fat SUV with
