ARMYTRIX recently shared a video that's about as far away from those digital baby steps as possible. (As an aside, their website is insanely good: the intro vid is of a stanced-out Aventador spitting fire through its valvetronic exhaust, then screaming off toward SEMA. I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me.)
Whether he is drifting up the Crown Range in New Zealand, competing in professional drift events all over the world, running his own graphic design/signage business or building top notch drift cars, Mike “Mad Mike” Whiddett is always up to something crazy. Well, he is at it again with this latest drift build. Those of you familiar with Mad Mike’s cars may know his Mazda RX-7 fitted with a quad-rotor 26b called “Madbul,” or his Mazda RX-8 with a tri-rotor 20b called “Badbul.” Both Madbul and Badbul are highly competitive professional drift cars that make 534 hp and 813 hp, respectively. While many people would be more than happy with numbers like those, Mad Mike wasn’t. He wanted more.
Ever have one of those days? You know, when work sucks, people are pissy and nothing seems to go right? Mr. Hillclimber here doesn’t want to hear it, because this vid shows you what a truly crappy day really looks like.
This Leaselocatorsracing.com Evo 8 dyno clip is a quick preview of the in depth feature that Revvolution.com will bring to you early this week. It’s also a not so subtle reminder that no matter how bad you think your ride is, there are unassuming, thousand-horsepower sleepers out there that will happily half-throttle your simple behind into the rear view.
A 4,000-rpm pull turns sooty when the engine out powers the dyno.
