Say Hi to Your Mother for Me November 17, 2008

Posted by chan in Cars.

So yea, I just finished watching another action packed episode of Top Gear (which for those of you who don’t know what it is, is BAFTA, multi-NTA and International Emmy Award-winning BBC television series about motor vehicles as per Professor Wikipedia) it’s simply insane and outragous this week.

Episode in a nutshell:

  • Richard Hammond goes to Japan to try out Toyota’s i-Real concept “car” the term car is used loosely
  • James May goes to Finland to get racing lessons from two-time Formula 1 champion Mika Häkkinen and then participates in an amateur race in preparation for his first supercar test.
  • Jeremy unveils his Corvette V8 powered food blender… yes children “FOOD” “BLENDER”
  • The guys receive a challenge to modify a normal car to make it beat a Mitsubishi Evo X’s lap time…. yea…

This episode got me thinking I have always wanted to tune a car of my own and priced it out calculated potential performance upgrades and now after watching this I am doubting all the magic in tuning cars… So question is “Is it possible to get racing performance out of a blue collar budget?”
