Ferrari Race & Play R/C Racers

Our brother from another mother Bburago has been kicking it up a notch with some bitchin new Ferrari product if you haven’t noticed. Bburago is coming out swinging (or cruisin) with the new Ferrari Race & Play R/C Racers with wrist controller. This thing is so cool! Since they’ve come in we haven’t stopped playing with them in the CAPD office. (Oh crap, I forgot the bosses read this blog) I mean… we tested them to ensure quality control, while still focusing on productivity, yadda, yadda, yadda. =)

Anyhow here is a quick video of said awesome wrist controlled R/C. Now understand Jon and I had to shoot this very quickly and I took a few moments to edit it, pick some music (that I will probably have to hear about from El Señor on Monday), and post it up on the blog! Friday’s blog post DONE! NEXT!!!!!!!!

458 Challenge debuts at Maranello (Race and Play Not Too Far Behind?)

Maranello, July 14th 2010 – The 458 Challenge has made its world premiere debut in Maranello during the Annual Dealer Meeting, a traditional event that brings together the representatives of Ferrari’s international sales network.

The new berlinetta, which will flank the F430 Challenge in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli in the 2011 season, is the fifth model used by Ferrari in its one-make championship which, next year, will be extended to include a new Asia-Pacific series. Coming just a few months after the Frankfurt Motor Show unveiling of the 458 Italia on which it is based, the 458 Challenge introduces a number of important modifications to adapt it for competition use.

The direct injection 4497 cc V8 remains strictly in production tune, with an output of 570 hp at 9,000 rpm. That said, modifications have been made to the gear ratios and calibration of its dual-clutch F1 gearbox to guarantee higher torque at lower revs. The 458 Challenge is also equipped with the E-Diff electronic differential already employed on the road-going version, a first for Ferrari’s track-only cars.
