Horsepower numbers get thrown around a lot, but when you enter the go-kart game, everything is different. Considering that a tidy 15 hp kart can hum along at 90 kph/55 mph, gives you an understanding of how much of a death trap this is! The ‘500hp’ written on the side of the kart is the owners goal. What a nutter!
Like his idol Greg Plitt, Logan Franklin is ex-army with a physique honed during five years military service. Still only 23, Logan started attracting the attention of the fitness world immediately after leaving the US Army in the summer of 2014. His first photoshoot with Luis Rafael spread his image far and wide. At the Olympia Expo in September, Logan was in demand by dozens of fitness photographers, and was a huge hit with the public. With his first competition coming up this Autumn, surely this is the next superstar of the fitness world.
American car culture has penetrated the Scandinavian countries. From modern-day muscle cars such as the Shelby GT500 to the original heroes like the Shelby Cobra, they’re all present in this movie. Don’t worry though, Europe has a place on the map too. Think Ford Sierra Cosworth, Porsche 911 GT3, Ferrari V8s, the BMW M3 and others. And while Japan’s presence is limited, it looks like a Toyota GT 86, for which “heavily modified” would be an understatement, has a central role in the motion picture. Børning brought its carbon fiber hoods and massive rear wings to Norwegian theaters on August 13 and was apparently a huge hit. Now SF-Film, the company behind the production, wants to take on the rest of the world, with an international release. Would you watch it?
Magpul is only producing 47 Ronin bikes, one for each of the 47 Ronin Warriors from Japanese lore. Additionally, each bike will have one of the warriors’ names engraved on it, and on the bike’s toolkit. The bikes will be released in staggered series pricing out around the $40k USD mark. The earlier releases will be slightly less expensive, as the final five will each be a completely bespoke design. For more information head over to the bike’s official website.
Kimmel sent one of his men to an L.A.-area medical marijuana shop to quiz customers on their way in. Each person was asked two questions — one on current events, another on cannabis culture. So “Who’s the pope right now?” would be followed up with “What’s Pizza Hut’s new crust stuffed with?” “How many electoral votes does California get?” would be followed up with “How many grams in an ounce?” “Who’s the Speaker of the House?” would be followed up with “Who’s the star of ‘Big Momma’s House’?” You get the picture.
When 17-year-old L.A. rapper Jamal Gutierrez (a.k.a. A-F-R-O) released a controversial freestyle on R.A. the Rugged Man’s YouTube channel last month, no one seemed to believe the kid’s multisyllabic rhymes were spontaneous. “This sh*t is not only written but very well rehearsed,” went the top YouTube comment. But whether his previous performance was off the top or not, A-F-R-O came back a week later to clear up any doubt that he can actually freestyle. How do you know it’s legit? Because the Rugged Man just starts throwing objects—and people—at the kid and watches him incorporate them into his lyrics.
