Matt Farah Gives us a Tip on how to Powerslide

Powersliding is one of those very fun and cool looking things to do in a car. After all what would half the car videos be without it.

Of course doing this on a public road is not a good idea as there is a good chance that it could lead to an accident. However, if you get on a track or other private road (with no traffic) then you can get the car to powerslide in a much safer environment.

We asked a few folks for tips on how to powerslide and automotive personality, Matt Farah was one that gave us a tip.

Click past the jump (or scroll down if you came directly to the full article) to read the tip the Matt gave us on power sliding as well as the steps of how to do a powerslide .

Porsche 911 GT3 Driving On Canyon Road

The Porsche 911 GT3 (991) is quite a good car. It may be perfect for the track, but how is it on a nice back road?

Well, our friend Matt Farah was able to see just how good it is on a nice canyon road. The car’s owner Shaun goes along for the ride and talks a bit about the 991 GT3.

Hit the jump to see a video of the GT3 and see the general spec.

Video: A Canyon Run in A $10K Porsche 911 (996)

Currently, the Porsche 911 (996) is a very good value. You can often find early examples for around $20,000 in good condition.

But sometimes you can find even better deals. The above pictured 996 cost under $10,000. Yes, you read that correctly.

The rear-engined sports car does have 150,000 miles on it but other than a clutch replacement and upgraded Intermediate Shaft (IMS) bearing (a smart thing to do on any 996 or 986), the maintenance on the car hasn’t been very much.

In this video Matt Farah drives a 2001 Porsche 911 on some nice canyon roads. He gives his take on the inexpensive Porsche during the drive. Is it in good condition after all those miles or was it $10K for a very good reason?

Matt Farah Drives A Modified Porsche 911 Turbo (930)

The Porsche 911 Turbo (930) is one of the all time greatest cars made by the German performance car maker. The 930 was incredibly fast for its time, but it was a tricky machine to drive. It received a reputation as a widow maker thanks to its combination of the rear-engine layout and the noticeable turbo lag.

The 930 is a very different car than the modern 911 Turbos. Sure the newer cars are much faster, but they don’t quite have the drama of the air-cooled cars. That isn’t to say they aren’t fun, but these older cars are just more raw and that makes them very special.

This video features Matt Farah driving a modified Porsche 930. The car puts out a very good 400 horsepower and thanks to its relatively low weight it makes for quite a quick ride. The boost may not kick in until 4,000 RPMs, but that simply adds to the drama.

Video: Matt Farah Gets Sideways In The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Matt Farah Drives the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

About a month ago we went to drive the 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup, including the SRT Hellcat, in Portland Oregon. We drove the cars on both the road and track to see just what they could do. At that same trip were some notable people including Matt Farah and Goldberg.

It was forecast to rain heavily at Portland International Raceway the day of the event (shocker, I know) and we got to talk a bit with Matt about the drive the night before. In talking to him he was hoping for a dry track to fully test the Hellcat, but he also thought some sliding in a 707 horsepower car could be fun.

Of the two he got the latter and this video shows his time in what may be the best American GT car currently on the market. The powerful machine provides a comfortable ride and yet can take corners very well. While it won’t out handle a Porsche, it gets around corners in a way that your father’s Challenger never could.

Check out what Matt thought about the American Muscle car and then let us know your thoughts on it in the comments.
