step one is fix the contradiction between engine max RPM capability and max RPM due to fuel flow rate. It sucks that 15K RPM engines are not even hitting 12K RPM because of the fuel flow restriction. Maybe they didn't know when they established the current regulations, but now they know. I bet that would make the… » 10/24/14 2:42pm Yesterday 2:42pm

I test drove a WRX some time around 2003. I remember it coming across as a simple car and I remember the turbo lag. I think prior to that the only turbo'd car I had driven was an RX-7, which was just OMG in comparison, so the lag and lack of much excitement left me meh. While in the showroom I asked about the brand… » 10/16/14 2:23pm 10/16/14 2:23pm

I see this limited visibility multiple lane change stunt often. Since John Q Law can't be everywhere all the time to educate these clowns, it's one of the many reasons I fantasize about having a paintball gun and some digital signage on my car to communicate. » 10/15/14 1:59pm 10/15/14 1:59pm

my mom bought one of these new when it was time to move on from her 280zx and the 300zx was a bit out of her price range. It turned out to be the most lemon of lemons. my parents escalated their complaints all the way up to the president of Subaru USA but got nowhere. As a result Neither of them will never own a… » 10/11/14 3:50pm 10/11/14 3:50pm

this would be a shocker. Even if relations are strained at Mercedes, why give up a seat and contract in what is by far the fastest car on track? So fast that I doubt the gap will be completely closed by next year. But it is fun to speculate on how that would change other moves. I wonder if Red Bull could change their… » 10/08/14 3:06pm 10/08/14 3:06pm

you want to hit the track with an abundance of power, grip, and intensity, maximizing your time spent at triple digit speeds and the impression you make on your lady friends. You have a choice between a Miata, a GT-R, and an SLS AMG. Which do you choose.? » 10/07/14 11:57am 10/07/14 11:57am

he said very clearly in an interview this weekend that he wants to be WDC, so his decisions will reflect that as his top objective. I suspect that Vettels announcement and Horner revealing that he is going to Ferrari and Kyvat is replacing him may not have been in Alonsos master plan. There is a better chance Red Bull… » 10/05/14 3:06pm 10/05/14 3:06pm

what we have here is probably a laundry list of bad decisions leading up to this point. That sucks but most of us in some facet of our lives will do the same so it's not something to feel shame about. But it is time to get really wise because nine out of ten options here are going to send you into a deeper hole. I… » 10/03/14 2:18pm 10/03/14 2:18pm

I don't think they could have known that it was a huge mistake to make it a rule that during the first season with the new hybrid power plants they could not make any meaningful changes. Most of the teams lost the championship before it even started with no chance of recovering no matter what resources they had at… » 10/02/14 8:45pm 10/02/14 8:45pm

it's still the same lightweight balanced-everything ubiquitous roadster. I have the first gen version of this motor in my Mazda 3.I have to wring the s&^t out of it to feel the sensation of acceleration and sure slow-car-fast whatever old man I want a little more. Adding twenty horsepower would have excited a lot more… » 10/01/14 5:53pm 10/01/14 5:53pm
