I thought the same thing. If I dumped money into a special built car, I better be the only beating the hell out of it... unless I said they could.

All cars sent to the media are done so with customer's permission unless owned by our facility directly. We advise them of the uses of the vehicle and the testing that will be done as well as the opportunity to come with the vehicle during the tests.

and really who wouldn't want someone like Jay Leno to test drive their car?? he is a car guy and knows what goes into these things and isn't likely to really push someone elses car.... unless they are right there with him lol. so its all good plus you could use that as a line someday, Jay Leno drove MY car

Nice looking car.

What's with Leno's hair? Did they wake him up from a nap?

Why is it at 5:08 John said "We've done over 500 Camaro's with 500+ HP" in the last 2 years. Yet at 8:45 he said the most of one car he's built is "couple 300 Vipers" in the last 15 years or so.

Not trying to start a war here or anything like that just curious is all.

I love at 3:16 into the video jay asks which charger are you using is it a eaton like the ZR1? Josh says yeah kind of like the Zr1 it is a eaton its a 2300CC kind of Eaton then he lifts the hood and a magnacharger sits there

600hp @ at crank for that price tag Geeze members on here have more at the wheels for less money.

Did you see when Jay mentioned doing a burnout, John "quickly" leaned over and made the sly move of turning off traction/stability control while Jay was talking.

.
Magnuson Products, Inc. handles service and the aftermarket for Eaton Supercharger Division and provides superchargers to a number of companies that design and manufacture the installation system for specific applications. Magnuson Products, Inc. provides more superchargers for aftermarket applications than any other supercharger manufacturer in the world. Magna Charger, Inc. is the complete supercharger system division of Magnuson Products, Inc.

So what John said was correct.
