…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Brute by American Expedition Vehicles?

American Expedition Vehicles Brute

If you want to turn your Jeep Wrangler into the ultimate off-road vehicle, then hand it over to American Expedition Vehicles and let them give it the full Brute conversion.

Designed to be stylish, bold and bruteiful, the Brute kit turns your TJ into a truck with more headroom thanks to a hardtop with skylights, increased storage space thanks to an all-steel bed, and a longer wheelbase thanks to frame extensions that are also designed to mount a winch.

Best of all, the kit can be installed in your garage in about 60 hours, giving you plenty of time to hit the trails after a long weekend of wrenching away.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: BeFaster Ducati 999S?

BeFaster Ducati 999S

The Ducati 999S is already a rare breed, but if you want to take the rarity of your bike to the limit, then give BeFaster a call and tell them you want the full treatment.

What you’ll end up with is the carbon fiber and titanium beauty you see before you. Weighing in at just 143 kg (315 lbs), the entire body, frame, and even the wheels have been replaced with carbon fiber versions of their former selves, and anything that couldn’t be carbon-ized has been made of titanium.

In addition to the reduction of weight, the bike’s power has also been given a bump, and now sits at 170 hp, giving the bike a 0-100 km time of less than 3 seconds, a 0-200 km time of less than 7 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 300 km/h.

All this power and lightness doesn’t come cheap however, as you’ll need to be willing to fork over $165,000 for the privilege, but if you’re looking for the ultimate motorcycle experience, then look no further than the BeFaster Ducati 999S.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Baseball Boss?

Baseball Boss

Baseball Boss is like a Fantasy Baseballer’s dream come true.

Designed to be the ultimate interactive baseball game, users can create teams using real major league players from 1907 or 2007, and then test and tweak those teams until they’re the best that they can be.

Once a team has been assembled, players can then challenge other players in real games, and using a combination of chance and statistics, a computer determines the winner.

New features are constantly being added, and it’s made by Challenge Games, who also developed Duels, so you know it’s going to have some great support behind it.

Are you ready to step up to the plate?
