SOMETHING SPECIAL - ARYTON SENNA

2018-04-06 | Jeremy Tedes | 0 | 37

I was doing my usual before bed Youtube surfing and came across a Top Gear video I had very surprisingly never seen. Surprising because I have seen every Top Gear episode until the Original Crew parted ways with the BBC. Also surprising as I have seen most content on my favourite driver - of any......

Car and Driver has been conducting extensive testing, including a full mile run - where (as of this writing) - the car topped out at 191+ MPH. This is impressive......

The Passion - Part Three - Phoenix Risen

2018-01-27 | Jeremy Tedes | 0 | 264

With my Father's passing, I had a certain amount of intense confusion and pain that can only come from losing someone who, at an incredibly deep level,  was a core stabilizing force throughout my life. My Dad and I have had some serious ups and downs, but he was always THERE. We could be in......

The Passion - Part Two - With the Car, so goes my Life

2018-01-25 | Jeremy Tedes | 0 | 68

As can be seen from part one of my blog, the Ford Mustang played quite a pivotal role in my car enthusiast life. It was literally everywhere. Before getting my own car, my friend Roger who I have known my entire life, bought both a four cylinder hatchback and then a 5.0L V8 GT convertible, drivin......

The Passion - Part One

2018-01-24 | Jeremy Tedes | 2 | 52

I do remember my first fascination with cars. My Father had, for a very brief time, a used blue 1972 Ford Mustang. Not a Mach 1/extreme version, just the regular Mustang. But for me, the car and especially the seats made me feel like I was in a rocket ship. And it is that feeling that I never......

Ontario Street Outlaws - Grudge - The Quickest Growing Racing League

2018-01-20 | Jeremy Tedes | 0 | 93

Ontatio Street Outlaws (OSO) is the brainchild of Paul and Marisa Norris. A legal way to race, as if you were on the street. Unlike traditional bracket racing, and like an arm drop, the starting "tree" at the track uses a random instant green to start the race. Both cars stage and at a random......

Apex Motoring Alpha 12x 2018 Build Tuned by IveyTune Technologies!

When I heard that Sean Ivey would be exclusively tuning Apex Motoring GTR's, I was happy. To say the least. I was fortunate to meet Sean in person a few years ago at Bushurs DSM Shootout event, through Nathan Samuels (Head Engineer at Apex). I could see why Nathan liked him right away, down to......

Race Ready Garage 2015 C7 Z06 - 178 MPH 1/2 Mile Record for Manual F1A Procharger Setup

2018-01-02 | Jeremy Tedes | 0 | 51

Sometimes you just have to be thankful when you find a Shop that can turn around a sub-par situation. Dave Rempel from Race Ready Garage was that person and that Shop. The earlier F1A Procharger build was hit and miss; the top end was breaking up and our runs were inconsistent (to say the least).......

Race Ready Garage 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 Track Duty

Almost touching into the 9's (a 10.04 pass)...the car was still not running right. Really. Not. Right. But now that we have the right Shop behind us (Race Ready Garage) some tuning changes and engine tweaks later and we added 7-8+ MPH in the 1/4 over the pass in this video (but unfortunately......

Canada's First 2018 BMW M550ix - Maranello BMW

Ah...Life. How ironic and humourous you can be. I had just come to the end of my 2014 E63S AMG lease and was certain, CERTAIN, I would jump into another Mercedes Benz - specifically the new E Class - at least the E43, and maybe even the new E63S if it would be released by the time my lease ended......

Toronto Downtown Mercedes: 2014 Mercedes Benz E63S Full Review

2016-11-02 | Jeremy Tedes | 1 | 4742

The Mercedes Benz marquee was always a car make I thought I would NEVER get. They were for old people I thought. Clunky, heavy and with zero personality. Funny enough, I was a BMW guy - although I had never owned one personally (my Father had a 1990 325i Vert, which I was allowed to drive; once).......

Apex Motoring Alpha 16 Results and Full Review

The Apex Motoring Alpha 16 was the most challenging and rewarding build I have personally ever been a part of. It was also the most difficult, mentally. On many fronts. I have now been a part of "uncharted" builds many times, when no one knows what to expect with a platform and/or technology that......
