        The ultimate sleeper WRX STi turbo

        Inspired from the minds of Subaru enthusiasts and performance gurus alike, the Turbobay performance FTW-GT30 turbocharger is what most would call a "god". Running a wolf in sheep's clothing, the FTW-GT30 turbocharger started as a blown Force Performance Green, aka "FP Green" and has since then been converted into what most would consider a GT30R.

        Video content: The Blown FP Green from 06 STi

        When you blow what most would consider to be the best turbocharger on the market, what else is left? The FTW-GT30 is a billet compressor wheel and shaft with a journal bearing. Perfect for longevity and ease of repair, the overall design basics of this turbo is big CFM, short spool time, and utmost reliability. Starting as a life-long enthusiast's theory, refined by an engineer, and finally produced by an experienced turbo builder; the FTW-GT30 was born by Turbobay Performance.

        • Ported 3" FP Green compressor housing
        • GT30 billet compressor wheel
        • Ported 3" inlet
        • Extended compressor wheel
        • Oil/water cooled
        • Plus much more!

        What will this turbo do? Intended for both WRX and STi, this is a new generation style of turbocharger that is built to do one thing; allow you to win races. Small on the outside and big on the inside, this quick spooling turbocharger will literally rape, pillage, and plunder! The one you see in the video was built especially for SubyPAL.com from the aforementioned blown FP green. Still appearing to be a standard FP green on the outside, this particular FTW-GT30 allows for mistaken horsepower identity and victory for the owner.

        World's biggest golf cart?

        Some of mankind's greatest achievements were merely stumbled upon and totally unintentional. Could the world's biggest golf cart be the next of mankind's seven greatest achievements? The eighth wonder of the world, this custom fabricated golf cart built by Josh Wallentin of J&N Customs in New Port Richey, Florida is totally astounding! Standing a verified twelve feet tall, I have yet to find a bigger golf cart.

        As always, great achievements are surrounded by controversy. A leading topic at supporting forum "Buggies Gone Wild" questions whether or not this even qualifies as a golf cart. What do you think? Join the conversation by visiting the active thread "World record for lifted golf cart?"

        By definition, "A golf cart or golf buggy (called golf car in ANSI standard Z130.1, since "carts" are not self-propelled)[1] is a small vehicle designed originally to carry two golfers and their golf clubs around a golf course or on desert trails with less effort than walking." - Wikipedia

        Is this a golf cart or simply a steel rack with wheels and a golf cart sitting up top? According to CarDomain's Autoholics blog entry "World Record? Biggest Lifted Golf Cart", this may just be a world record. Since that original post, some very funny comments have arisen. Whether you think it is or isn't a golf cart, one must at least admire the creativity and ingenuity it takes to accomplish such a task.

        "I must have missed it, HOW do you get in it? Think it's lifted so high to avoid the gators?" - Autoholics

        As of now, this is the world's biggest golf cart at twelve feet tall. Until another one emerges from the depths of the web, this is the biggest one around. Go ahead and Google your brains out and see if you can find one taller! I've tried and tried but can't find anything. If you do find something, please post it in the comment space below.
