d3o is the latest in action sports protective body armor. Their unique material is specially engineered with intelligent molecules. They flow with you as you move but on shock they lock together to absorb impact energy. The material is used by several different companies in tons of different products. I am keeping an eye out for Gore-Tex Pro Shell Leather (the first leather moto jacket using d3o). Another brand using d3o for motorcyclists is Racer gloves. Most products with d3o are for sports (soccer, ski, etc) but more and more motorcycle companies are adopting the material. See more pictures and videos.

We all knew it was comin and now is finally here, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8. The SRT8 Challenger will feature a 6.1-Liter Hemi V8 that pumps out 425hp and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. The SRT8 is expected to reach 0-60 in the low fives as well as a impressive quarter mile time of under 14 seconds. This monster will weigh in at 4,140lb but will sit on forged aluminum 20-inch wheels as well as a set of four-piston Brembo brakes at all four corners. Unfortunately it seems the first run of Challenger SRT8′s will be controlled by Dodge’s five-speed AutoStick transmission but with a Hemi under the hood it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
