The RIMAC NEVERA

RIMAC NEVERA IS THE WORLD’S FASTEST ACCELERATING PRODUCTION CAR

While on its way to its American debut at ‘The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering’ in California, the Rimac Nevera made a quick stop at the drag strip at Famoso Raceway. Back in June, it set the unofficial world record for the fastest accelerating production car but now, with Famoso Raceway officials and the experts from DragTimes, it was time to do it again.

Driven by Brooks Weisblat from Dragtimes, with standard Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres – just like every Nevera – the car lined up at Famoso drag strip, with the air temperature at 37oC/98F and track temperature at 65oC/149F.

With its Launch Control engaged – done by simply putting your left foot on the brake and flooring the accelerator – the Nevera prepared to unleash the full force of its 1,914hp powertrain through four separate electric motors. Having lifted a foot off the brake, the Nevera’s advanced control systems, including Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring 2, constantly monitored which wheels had the most grip, portioning out the power to minimize wheelspin and maximize acceleration as it launched down the strip.

And in just a blink of an eye, the Nevera set the ¼-mile in a production car world record time of 8.582 seconds, at a top speed of 167.51mph. The run was the eleventh of the day in quick succession, without any performance degradation between the runs, and can be seen in full on the Dragtimes YouTube channel.

Nevera’s previous unofficial world record quarter-mile time for a production car was set at 8.62 seconds earlier this year during testing in Croatia on an unprepared airstrip. Rimac has now beaten its own record and produced times that can be independently verified by third parties – with lots of performance still to be unlocked through over-the-air software updates.

Miroslav Zrnčević, Test and Development Driver said:

“This was our first test on a VHT (glued) surface, so we did not know what to expect. At first we were hitting less than expected ¼ mile times (8,7 and 8,8 seconds) than we did on a normal, non prepped surface in Europe. The track temperature was 65oC and we had to do some adjustments. Our traction control learns the surface on each run and adjusts the torques on the wheels. After some adjustments and different tire warm up strategies we managed to get better results. Brooks helped with his experience of staging the car and we managed to set the world record for the fastest accelerating production car and also beat our own ¼-mile record. Still, we are confident that the Nevera has much more to give and that we can go even quicker with more experience and testing on this kind of surface. We will be back.”

Mate Rimac, Founder and CEO said:

“Our business started with a BMW 3 Series that I had converted to electric power, which went on to set a number of FIA acceleration records. But what we have produced today is on a completely different level. The Concept_One, back in 2011, was the fastest accelerating EV in the world, running the quarter-mile in 9.9 seconds. We’ve now broken that record with a standard production car by 1.4 seconds. With four independent motors, each individually controlled, we have so much flexibility over how the car accelerates and corners, giving us a huge advantage over any combustion-engined vehicles.

“But Nevera is about so much more than speed. With the largest battery pack ever fitted to a production car, it can travel 340 miles on a single charge. With in-house-developed Rimac All-Wheel-Torque Vectoring 2 it’s as agile as it is fast, and with electrically adjustable dampers and active aerodynamics it’s comfortable and quiet on a cruise, and a performance machine on a track.”

Designed, engineered, tested and manufactured in-house at Rimac Automobili‘s global headquarters in Croatia, Nevera’s name proudly carries its Croatian heritage. A nevera is a mighty Croatian storm, known for its speed, ferocity and energy – a fitting name therefore for both the Nevera’s character and ability. Able to transform in a split second from a supple grand tourer to an all-out force of nature, Nevera is charged by lightning much like its namesake.

Super League Triathlon 2021

The World’s Premier Swim-Bike-Run Series, Super League Triathlon 2021, Will Be In The U.S for the First Time At The Iconic Malibu Triathlon, Offering One Of The Greatest Spectacles In Sports

The World’s Best Athletes Battle It Out For Championship Title

Registration Now Open

Super League Triathlon (SLT), the world’s premier swim-bike-run series, today announced they will debut in the U.S. at the iconic Malibu Triathlon on Sept. 25 & 26, 2021. This exciting new pro race pitches the very best athletes from around the globe against each other offering one of the greatest spectacles in sports for some thrilling racing to battle it out for the championship title.

Over the course of the season, the top male and female triathletes from around the world will compete in quick and exciting race formats to be crowned the best all-round triathlete. The Championship Series is equally split between male and female competitors: 20 men and 20 women at the start line hoping to get the better of one another across whichever of Super League’s unique race formats are being employed on that day.

U.S. high-profile athletes include Katie Zaferes–pro-triathlete, former olympian & current SLT Champion, as well as Taylor Spivey–pro-triathlete, from the local community of Redondo Beach. This new pro race will bring in more spectators and media broadcast opportunities for the event as a whole.

Super League Triathlon CEO and co-founder, Michael D’hulst, said, “We handpicked the Malibu Triathlon for this investment due to its incredible history in sprint and Olympic distance racing and its incredible potential for Super League Triathlon.”

“Acquiring the Malibu Triathlon is a perfect opportunity for Super League to move into the USA and build our presence in a region that already has a strong affinity with our exciting and dynamic racing and the content that we offer. It also aligns with our wider strategy to add more major cities and regions to our portfolio,” D’hulst continues.

SLT acquired the Malibu Triathlon last year. The Malibu Triathlon is the most iconic triathlon in the world, taking place in one of the most beautiful locations–Malibu, CA–for 34 years.

The prestigious event has welcomed world-class athletes as well as Hollywood stars such as Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and J.Lo during its long and illustrious history, securing Super League Triathlon a significant entry into the U.S. market.

The Malibu Triathlon has a strong foundation as a media presence. The Malibu Triathlon has hosted celebrities and the top LA Corporations to raise over $1 million each year for pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Over $15 million has been raised for the hospital to date.

5,000 participants and 10,000 spectators will take part in the event weekend on Sept. 25-26, 2021. There are two distances available – Olympic and Classic.

The Olympic Distance (1.5K Swim, 40K Bike, 10K Run) race takes place on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 and the Classic Distance (½ Mile Swim, 17 Mile Bike, 4 Mile Run) takes place on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021. The SLT Pro Race will be the newest addition to the Malibu Triathlon, taking place at noon after the Olympic distance race ends on Saturday.

Registration is now open.

5 Vital Things to Do After a San Francisco Motorcycle Accident

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,985 motorcyclists passed away in motor vehicle accidents in 2018. This statistic sounds scary, but not all crashes are fatal accidents.

Riding a motorcycle is a thrilling experience, and part of that thrill is the perceived danger. You can enjoy the ride more when you’re prepared.

Keep these tips in mind, so you know what to do when involved in a San Francisco motorcycle accident.

  1. Safety First

Before you or anyone else does anything, you should make sure that everyone is safe. If possible, remove yourself from the road and the path of traffic. This helps prevent further danger and accidents.

If your motorcycle and other vehicles are moveable, get them off the road too. Don’t leave the scene of the accident, but take them out of the path of traffic.

  1. Don’t Remove Your Gear

After an accident, you and your body can go into shock. Adrenaline starts pumping through your body and prevents you from feeling any pain. Because of this, you won’t be aware of the injuries you may have suffered.

Do not remove your protective gear. This can make injuries worse. The paramedics that arrive at the scene will help you remove the gear and administer immediate medical care.

  1. Call the Authorities

Call 911 and alert the authorities so that a police officer can come out and make an official report. This will make submitting an insurance claim easier. It’ll also ensure that both parties obtain the correct insurance information from everyone involved.

If there are injuries, paramedics will also come to the scene. This will ensure anyone who’s injured gets the medical care that they require.

  1. Gather Evidence

Take pictures of everything and gather as much evidence as you can while at the accident scene. Motorcycles tend to get the automatic blame for accidents. Having evidence of the vehicle damage, current weather conditions, and the accident location will help you make your case later.

Obtain a copy of the police report. This is the official documentation of the accident, and the insurance companies will require it.

  1. Contact an Attorney

After the accident, reach out to an attorney. Some car accident and personal injury attorneys, like Sweet Lawyers, specialize in motorcycle accidents. They can advise you of your rights and help you make a claim to the insurance company.

The insurance company will make an initial offer, but it’s often the lowest amount possible. Hiring an attorney as soon as possible means you have an experienced representative on your side looking out for your best interests. Let the lawyer negotiate with the insurance company for you.

Be Prepared For a San Francisco Motorcycle Accident

You drive as safely as possible and practice defensive driving on your morning commute. However, you can’t totally prevent an accident from happening. Should you become involved in a San Francisco motorcycle accident, these five tips will help you stay prepared.

New Openings in Orange County, CA

RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO Announces Opening of Second Orange County, CA Location 

Tokyo-trained Chef Toshimasa Sano is Excited with the Resurgence of Restaurants and Tourism in Orange County 

WHO: RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO restaurant

WHAT: Announces Grand Opening of Its Second Location. Date: April 12, 2021

WHERE: 2143 N Tustin St Ste 1, Orange, CA 92865

WHEN: Monday, April 12, 2021

Japanese Chef Toshimasa Sano opened his second ramen restaurant at 2143 N Tustin St Ste 1 in the City of Orange on Monday, April 12. Chef Sano was trained at the famed Tsujita ramen restaurant in Tokyo and opened his first restaurant RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO in Buena Park in August 2019, which the Orange County Register named second on the top 10 Japanese ramen restaurants in Orange County in 2020.

Chef Sano is especially excited to open this second location in Orange County, which can safely serve twice as many customers as the Buena Park location. A new menu will feature vegetarian ramen options as well as ramen dishes made with miso broth, the specialty of Tsujita, which has become an artisan ramen brand that was selected one of the best 10 ramen shops in Tokyo by the readers of Japan Times in 2019.

“Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting soybeans with salt and koji mold. It’s full of probiotics and linked to a variety of health benefits, including a stronger immune system,” Sano said. “I hope to serve this umami-packed miso-based ramen to residents of the City of Orange.”

The new location also has a bigger selection of appetizers and other dishes as well as alcoholic beverages.

Sano’s menu includes five kinds of ramen noodles: His signature miso-based Tsukemen dipping noodle, White Miso Ramen, Red Miso Ramen, Vegetarian Ramen and Savory Chicken Ramen, along with toppings such as Pork Chashu (roasted pork), Soft-Boiled Eggs, Menma (marinated bamboo shoots), Bean Sprouts, Corn, and Spicy Tao (a spicy paste made with garlic and hot chilli paper).

Sano extended non-ramen and appetizer options at this Orange location. They include three types of rice bowls (Chashu, Spicy Tuna, and Takana vegetables), four types of Buns (Pork, Spicy Pork, Chicken and Spicy Chicken) and Japanese favorite Curry Rice. Among the appetizers are Chicken Karaage (Japanese fried chicken), Takoyaki, Agedashi Tofu, Gyoza, Shumai, Seaweed Salad and Tofu Salad. Also new is a Kids Plate.

Responding to numerous customer requests, Sano decided to include Vegetarian Ramen with miso broth and eggless noodles for vegan diners. Another addition to the menu is Savory Chicken Ramen made with chicken broth.

A native of Tokyo’s historical district called Asakusa, Sano moved to California in 2019 to manage the first Ramen & Tsukemen TAO location in Buena Park. He was trained in Tsujita by its founder for 10 years prior to his dream-come-true adventure of owning his own restaurant in the U.S.  

The restaurant has 42 seats and will be open for indoor and outdoor dining Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. -9 p.m. The restaurant is complying with all local guidelines and precautions regarding Covid-19.

Ramen & Tsukemen TAO is on Instagram and Facebook.

SK8 – CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE

TAYLOR GANG SINGER HERALDS UPCOMING PROJECT WITH SECOND ALT-ROCK JAM ARRIVING TODAY ALONGSIDE DANIEL KELLY-DIRECTED VISUAL

Fast-rising Taylor Gang singer, SK8, is continuing his musical evolution into alternative rock with his new single, “Caught In The Middle” – LISTEN HERE.

Over an infectious guitar riff and trap-like drums, SK8 uses a nostalgia-tinged pop/punk chorus to describe feeling caught between wanting a relationship and wanting to pursue his dreams.

I’ve always known that I wanted to be a recording artist. I wanted the life that I’d seen my favorite musicians and bands live. I moved all the way from Omaha, Nebraska to achieve that dream and sometimes that dream pulls you in a direction that separates you from another thing you want in your life. ‘Caught In The Middle’ is about that constant push and pull and trying to find the balance in my personal life and music career.” –SK8

“Caught In The Middle” arrives today alongside a dramatic visual directed by SK8’s frequent collaborator, Daniel Kelly – WATCH HERE.

The new single and video from the Omaha, NE born, LA-based singer arrives after his first foray into alt-rock with “Famous” featuring fellow ascending recording artist Tyla Yaweh, which also received an accompanying Daniel Kelly-directed visual. American Songwriter praised “Famous,” noting that, “SK8 effortlessly blends hip-hop and punk into some newly evolved sound.” Additionally, Hot New Hip Hop hailed the song as a, “genre-melting experience.”

ABOUT SK8:

At 15, you could find SK8 in his room writing lyrics, and by his sophomore year, you could find him handing out CDs in high school. The 23-year-old moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska and linked with the venerable Taylor Gang, first breaking into the mainstream with his gold-certified single, “Like That,” with Jack & Jack and opening for revered rap icons like Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd. SK8 began building a dedicated fanbase of dreamers who related to his message of seizing every moment long before his eventual move to LA. Shortly after founding his own imprint, Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan’s ART@WAR, SK8 released his major label debut EP, sk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles “Omme (Feat. Wiz Khalifa),” “XXX” and “Mood (Feat. YK Osiris).” Over a year later, SK8 turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” and its associated forthcoming project which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest, but not last, development in SK8’s rapidly evolving artistry.

The Best Cities to Get Stoned

It’s been a busy year so far for the cannabis industry: In recent weeks, New York, Virginia, and New Jersey legalized recreational marijuana for adults — with four other states, and even the federal government, possibly joining soon.

In light of these rapid changes — and 4/20 around the corner — the most important question to ask right now is: Which of America’s weed meccas promise to enhance your cannabis experience?

LawnStarter ranked 2021’s Best Cities to Get Stoned by comparing 94 U.S. cities (where recreational marijuana is currently legal) based on 12 key indicators of a smoking good time. Among them: The volume of Google searches for “marijuana” and “weed,” access to dispensaries and head shops, and availability of 420-friendly lodging and smoking lounges.

Check out the top 20 stoner cities below, followed by some highlights and lowlights from Lawnstarter’s report.

Highlights and Lowlights

Denver: The Mile High City 

Denver takes the weed cake in our ranking as America’s pot capital. With Colorado leading the nation’s recreational cannabis reform movement in 2012, it’s safe to say being a first mover really has its advantages.

Denver dominates the social environment category, with more 420-friendly lodging establishments and social consumption lounges. Where Denver falls short: the number of dispensaries and head shops and Google search popularity.

Colorado Springs and Lakewood also finished on a high note, at Nos. 7 and 18 overall, respectively. Only Fort Collins, in 63rd place, didn’t fare as well.

California: The State of High

Five Golden State cities landed in the top 10, a dozen in the top 20, and 20 in the top 30, and … you get the point: California is the “it” place for stoners, with the Los Angeles metro sweeping the popularity and supply access categories.

Among the top 10 overall are Fullerton, Garden Grove, and Glendale — all earning the highest grades in popularity and supply access — plus San Francisco at No. 3.

While no California city won every single metric, chances are you can find anything and everything cannabis-related in the state. It is, after all, the true reform pioneer: The state was first to legalize medical marijuana, in 1996.

Doobie Newbies

Cities in the newest states to join the league of fun-weed states — Arizona, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York — for the most part placed in the bottom third of our ranking. For example, Tucson, Arizona, landed at No. 85; Rockford, Illinois, at No. 91; Newark, New Jersey, at No. 90; and New York City at No. 77.

But two cities are riding on their recent high: Chicago — propelled by an abundance of marijuana tours and events — at No. 28, and Paterson, New Jersey — with the most residents searching for weed online — at No 46. Apparently, stoners here have waited long enough and aren’t wasting any more time.
