Black Current – Electric Dragster under 10secs 1/4 Mile

Posted in Classic, Dragster, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Two brothers from Hungerford, Sam & Olly Young,  have not only managed to piece together a fully working electric car from a 1965 VW Beetle shell and an old milk float but they have by some amazing feat managed to make it go from 0-60 in 1.6 secs, it can eat a 1/4 mile in less than 10 secs (9.51 to be exact) and it crossed the finish line doing 135mph!!

Now I don’t know about you but I think there would be a rather large queue at the dairy when they advertised a vacancy as a float driver if these boys where the mechanics there!! I know I’d love to have a go, the acceleration must be amazing and the whole experience quite surreal as I associate fast-moving motor vehicles (dragsters being at the top of this thought pile) to be loud but this Black Tarmac eating Machine has a very quaint hum about it.

The long and short of it is I want a Morris Minor version please LOL

Flat/Matte or Chrome Effects

Posted in Supercar with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Right or not I’m loving Flat/Matte and also Chrome effects whether it’s paints or wraps it makes cars look slicker than slick or tougher than Bruce Willis in a blood and oils soaking white vest 🙂

Some cars really look gaudy with top to toe Chrome but others look slick and definitely gives them a look of traveling at a 100mph while still standing still but the Flat/Matte would have to be my first choice, there just aren’t words descriptive enough to say how tough it instantly transforms any car man enough to don this stealthy, kevlar bullet proof vest of an outfit.
