Making 280mph Capable Carbon Fiber Wheels - /INSIDE KOENIGSEGG

One of the most disputed topics in the industry: Is it possible to make high performance carbon fiber wheels? Christian von Koenigsegg explains that it's not only possible, but his company has been doing it for a few years now. Take a look at how:

Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE

The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions, built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen.

How To Race Long Beach IndyCar and IMSA - /SHAKEDOWN
How To Race Long Beach IndyCar and IMSA - /SHAKEDOWN

Justin Wilson gives Leo Parente and /ShakeDown the recipe for racing the Long Beach street course, IndyCar, and IMSA. JW mixes 'fried eggs' and 'bread loaves' [found on the track] with more classic ingredients [in-car] of gas, brake, balance, and aggressiveness.

Justin explains what it takes to hustle an IndyCar vs a Daytona Prototype, how the Ford and Honda V6 turbos compare, and why F1 today seems more video game then ever [Justin raced F1 in 2002 and 2003].

Shot the day before the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend began, the action is in the info Justin Wilson shares and the details of the racecars being prepped.

PS - Going for the win, sitting pretty in P2, Justin was taken out by Scott Dixon as the race was winding down. Frustrating, as Dixon's Chevy eventually had to pit for a fuel splash and the Justin / Dale Coyne Racing / Boy Scouts DW12-Honda was good to go to the end with better mileage and strategy.

Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE

If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best.

Muscle Evolved: Modding a Mustang GT
Muscle Evolved: Modding a Mustang GT

When it comes to cornering, the Ford Mustang has always been a bit lack luster. Factory attempts to cure this have been valiant (Boss 302, SVT Cobra R), however sometimes you need to think outside the box to get to the next level. The /BIG MUSCLE garage acquired a 2013 Mustang GT last year and were thrilled, until that is, we took it to the track. There we found Cortex Racing and with that, the understanding that with the right set of legs underneath it, even an over weight pony car can be made into an evil piece of track day weaponry.

Carb'd 461 Big Block - 1965 Oldsmobile - /BIG MUSCLE

Say hello to the first Oldsmobile we've ever featured on /BIG MUSCLE. This 1965 Cutlass F-85 has been cloned into a wicked 442 by it's owner. The goal was simple - take a car that was a bit outside the norm and slowly transform it into a kick-ass cruiser that has the ability to be flogged on the autocross. With a carb'd 461 big block under the hood, it's big, different and one of the most overlooked machines from the muscle car era.

Owner:
• Dennis "Fish" Newman / Dave Schaible

It's got a 5.0L engine out of an old Ford Mustang, the front end off a Pinto and a frame that's almost 100 years old. The Road Race T is the creation of Dennis Newman and Dave Schaible and was constructed to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons, a 24 hour endurance race where the original purchase price of the car can be no more than $500.00. It's small, light and thanks to its amazingly talented builders, has the ability to put the hurt on the majority of its competition.

1966 Nova Wagon: TAPOUT Terror - /BIG MUSCLE

Owner:
• Tim "SkyScrape" Katz

Most people who want to go road racing don't start off in a 48-year old station wagon. However it you're Tim "SkyScrape" Katz, the co-founder of "TAPOUT" you just say "F*CK IT", and build a wagon with the big 'ole V8 engine, a basketball size turbo, a roll cage and four racing seats so the family can come along for the ride. Tim's 1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon was built in his garage and is anything but stock. Sure it's got some trick parts, but if you think it's a high-dollar resto-rod, think again as Tim's not only one helluva wrench, but one of the most die-hard car guys you're ever likely to meet.

Sometimes, as luck would have it, we find vehicles right around the corner from us. In this case the subject is a 1926 Hudson that was hand fabricated into a woody surf wagon by Ben McCloy and Scott Satteria of Jack Dick Custom's in Martinez, CA. This car is about imagination and ingenuity and reminds us why hot-rods and muscle cars are just so damn outstanding.
