General Motors’ LS engines have ended up in a lot of cars that the American automaker did not make. It has been a go-to motor for enthusiasts and tuners for years because of its power potential, finding its way into an assortment of makes and models, like the 1991 Nissan 240SX in the Hoonigan video above. It’s facing off against another LS-powered monster – a modified fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. The 2002 Chevrolet Camaro features a juiced 6.0-liter V8 engine. The output with nitrous is between 700 and 800 horsepower (521 and 596 kilowatts). The power glides to the wheels and the 9.0-inch rear end through a two-speed gearbox. Inside, the owner gave the Chevrolet a safety cage. The Nissan’s owner swapped out the 240’s engine for an LS motor with nitrous. The coupe pumps out around 700 hp, which puts it on par with the Camaro. This would seem like a fairly even race looking at the engine specs, but there is a big difference between the two – weight.

Call it the credit crunch, call it the sub-prime crisis, whatever you call it, I call it trouble. It?������s hard to pinpoint exactly what the consequences of the developing global economic downturn will be for Formula 1. But it?������s hard to imagine them being good. And to the pessimists it could look very bad indeed. The car manufacturers When I first began following Formula 1 in 1989 the only manufacturer-run team in the sport was Ferrari. Renault and Honda were both present as engine suppliers. Today the car manufacturers account for six of the ten teams and supply all the engines.

Making up places isn’t easy in Monaco. Even with the unpredictable conditions and drivers dropping back due to collisions, only one driver improved on his starting position by more than four places. That was Pascal Wehrlein , who started on the back row. Up at the sharp end places are even harder to come by, which makes Sergio Perez’s rise to third even more remarkable. The Force India driver made his own call on the timing of his switch to intermediates tyres and it paid off handsomely, lifting him ahead of other drivers who had swapped tyres sooner but become stuck behind those still on full wets. An early change to slicks cemented Perez’s hold on third position, handing him and Force India their first podium appearance of the year. 2016 Monaco Grand Prix lap chart The positions of each driver on every lap.
