The 500 AWHP, AWD, Hillclimbing, Psycho Syclone - /TUNED

The 500 AWHP, AWD, Hillclimbing, Psycho Syclone - /TUNED

Check out Adam's insane, manual transmission, all wheel drive, all aluminum V-6 Syclone.

This thing gets it.




We end our fourth season with probably our favorite subject car of all time, Adam Auerbach's GMC Syclone Hillclimber. This truck is what "Tuned" is all about; customized in every way possible, 100% function with form following suit. It's nasty, dirty, evil, and perfect.

World's Fastest All Wheel Drive GMC Syclone

Roberts GMC Syclone is the world's fastest still all wheel drive. There are some faster rear wheel drive trucks, but at that point, they little resemble a V-6, all wheel drive Syclone. Glad to see him still running, and building.

8.76@161 mph.

SpeedHunters Features the Syborg - GMC Syclone



SpeedHunters just posted an article on Adam's Syborg GMC Syclone. This Syclone has lots of unique features that allow Adam to use the truck for a ton of automotive events.  Everything from Autocross to the Mohave Mile.

Turbonetics turbocharger

The truck is still powered by a turbocharged V6, but instead of the factory 4.3 Adam is running a 283 cubic inch aluminum “Bowtie” V6 from GM Performance. The motor work also includes a custom sheetmetal intake manifold, a Canton Racing Accusump system, and Big Stuff 3 engine management.
Great to see Adam get this project on the road, and using it the way he intended. Head over to SpeedHunters for the full article and pictures.

7.59@185 mph GMC Syclone

Jamie Hackings GMC Syclone


Its not all wheel drive anymore, but it still runs a V6. From what I can gather, its a Bowtie block, large 88 mm turbo, and runs in the 275x tire class. Its nasty fast with a 7.59@185 mph 1/4 mile pass.

Jamie Hacking's Syclone runs a new personal best at the 2011 World Cup, ends up having a problem in Eliminations and has to hit the brakes.

-Congrats to Jamie on a new best and an amazing truck, we got to take a look up close and personal at the truck and it is super clean. Jamie was also a nice guy and took a few minutes to talk to us, especially the trucks biggest fan, seen in the pictures.
