September Petrolbox Unboxing!

We are super excited to have landed a partnership with the guys from Petrolbox. Not only do they have a really cool product, but they also have become huge fans of the show, which is so humbling. We really like not only the idea of an automotive subscription box, but the really cool and quality products that come in them. Be sure to watch the video and don't forget to use our code when you order your own! 

We Finally Do Real YouTube Things!!

We have been threatening to do some YouTube features for a while now. What better car to start with then the car that has been a non stop project since before the show even started? Without further ado, it is Robbie's 240sx!

Saturday Morning CARtoons

The race season is fast approaching and I for one can't wait! What better way to get into the racing mood then in car video of one of the most advanced and fastest autocross rigs on the planet? For those of you that don't know, this is what happens when autocrossers get a hold of a 1970 Camaro and a blank canvas. The result is a true marvel of racing technology. The car was designed around a GT1 car, but with a focus on a more rigid chassis. They have recorded cornering Gs of nearly 2G sustained and over 1.5G in accel and decel. The best part is its local to us, being based out of a small town just South Des Moines. It is a short video this week, but it is incredible! Watch the video below, then follow the link to a detailed story from the folks over at GRM.

Saturday Morning CARtoons

Who's ready for week 2! Week 1 is a hard video to follow after, but I think this week's video is up to the task. This week's video is also a bit of an oldie but a goodie. It is about a little Lotus Elise that has been modded to beyond insane levels. It is dripping with carbon fiber, runs full slicks, and is twincharged. You read that right, twincharged, not twin-turboed! That means that this little beast has a supercharger and a turbo setup. Imagine having over 600hp in a car that weighs so little; it's insanity! Everything about this car is Ten Tenths approved! Check out the video below. 

Saturday Morning CARtoons

This is something we are going to try out called Saturday Morning CARtoons. This is where we are going to share a car related video that we think is cool every week. It could be anything from racing videos, to car reviews, to documentaries. It may relate to what is happening in the automotive world, or in our podcast, or it could just be a random video we like that week. 

This week is Ken Block's first Gymkhana video. This was brought back into my mind by this week's release of Gymkhana 8. Of all his videos, I have always liked this one best. There is no huge budgets, no insane exotic locations, just a man and his car. It has a very grassroots feel that I just like more. It is almost like any of us could make this video if you had an overpowered car, lots of car control skill, and a few friends with GoPros. 

Let us know what you think of this video, or even the idea of Saturday Morning CARtoons, in the comments below or on any of our social media sites. Keep an eye on this Blog space, because we have a lot more coming for you guys. Enjoy!
