Top Fuel Drag Boats are Lightning on Water(Oct 22, 2014)These things have way more spectacular crashes than their land counterparts which can be awesome in their own right. Curious how safe these are that not more folks are killed in them.
Revorix Unveils SEMA-Bound Corvette Stingray(Oct 17, 2014)Looks good to me. Love the color and wheels too. Dunno if those sideskirts do anything for aerodynamics but they do look like they belong on something that should be racing.
Diesel Dragsters Running 140lbs Of Boost(Oct 16, 2014)Hey Ryan, if you don't want to breathe it in then don't attend. There's lots of noxious vapors in the air from regular dragster events that aren't visible. So if you're worried...
Rock Bouncer Fail And Epic Tumble(Oct 10, 2014)That was hardly an "insane" crash in rock bouncing. Those rigs are designed to take a LOT more punishment than that and the driver/passenger walk away injury free.
The New Ford F-150's Redesign Will Make it Last for 15 Years(Oct 10, 2014)What a bunch of baloney. Just market fuel savings (if any truly exist) and cut the "green" crap. Crude oil has fallen to $81/barrel last I checked from well over $100/barrel but the gas pump prices haven't fallen with it. Even though the west's economies have stalled and are using far less energy as in indicator.
The New Ford F-150's Redesign Will Make it Last for 15 Years(Oct 10, 2014)Being lighter doesn't make anything better able to carry/move more weight. It doesn't even necessarily make everything faster or more nimble. The fastest, most nimble player at last night's Colts/Texans football game was a 6'6" 285lb defensive tackle named J.J. Watt.
More Dirt on the Mid-Engined C8 Corvette(Oct 07, 2014)V The current OHV designs have proven to be more reliable, more fuel efficient, and every bit as able to produce horsepower (and better able) torque as ohv/multi-cam engines. The added benefit is less expensive.
Clarkson and Top Gear Crew Forced to Flee Argentina(Oct 05, 2014)So they and apparently think this sort of crap is funny? Especially the Alabama nonsense? Would this prick do the same in some place like Iraq referencing Islam? The answer is NO! Lucky they didn't get their heads cut off in Argentina.
No, Cadillac Won't Drop the Escalade Name(Oct 01, 2014)Most American cars aren't even mostly built in America anymore, much less built by American citizens of parts made in America by American companies and American citizen workers. Escalade is about as close to an truly American automobile and it's a truck! Leave the name alone.
No, Cadillac Won't Drop the Escalade Name(Oct 01, 2014)What if I don't give a crap about what the rest of the world thinks? The rest of the world is generally a toilet bowl full of turds passing for people pissed off that Obama has yet to completely destroy our standard of living.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Captured Chilling on the Street(Sep 30, 2014)Rarely seen in the San Francisco Bay Area just yet. So far have spotted just three (4 if including the one with dealer plates) since the release. For what it's worth all were driven by men only one of which might have been older than mid to late 30s, and he looked perhaps late 40s to early 50s.
Could the Mid-Engined Corvette Zora ZR1 Sell Alongside the C7?(Sep 28, 2014)Zr1/ZO6 were/are supercars like it or not. Facts are facts, they smacked much European supercar ass at a fraction of the cost. So much so they Euro-boys had to invent the term "hypercar" because C6 and C7 were making them look like the overpriced jewelry and trailer queens they are.
Of Course You Want to See the C7 Corvette and BMW i8 Drag Race(Sep 27, 2014)Key words at the end of the video is that these boobs intentionally ran these "races" at high altitude to handicap the Vette's hp by 15%, while noting that battery power isn't affected by altitude. Stupid video and inane comments based on being manipulated by agenda driven "testing".
Lotus is Still Serious About Doing a Sedan and SUV(Sep 21, 2014)The added benefit is stockholders get more profits, the company employs more people and the buying public gets more choices. Lotus would do well following this model. However they will only succeed if people buy what they build.
Lotus is Still Serious About Doing a Sedan and SUV(Sep 21, 2014)Without Porsche building Cayenne there wouldn't exist today the 918. That's why they built Macan to further expand their bottom lines. They needed to do that so that they are able to do the things they WANT to do.
Lotus is Still Serious About Doing a Sedan and SUV(Sep 21, 2014)At least this guy understands Lotus needs to expand their lineup if they want to expand their bottom line so they can keep building the types of cars they're known for. Porsche figured this out, that's why the built Cayenne and Panamera.
It's Happening: Marchionne Will Increase Ferrari Production(Sep 15, 2014)Calm down. Ferrari is a business of making not just cars but profits. Even charging the outrageous prices they already do they can't pay for the R&D, tooling and their racing program on the money coming in on the few sales the make annually. Ferrari has got to piss or get off the pot. Either they charge even more for too expensive cars or they increase production.
First World Problem: Porsche Recalling 918 Spyder(Sep 10, 2014)Reality check: EVERY business is about making money. Customers are only important insofar as to being source of said money. Of course it'd be nice if a biz cared about their customers but for me giving me a good quality product my money paid for is all I demand. The rest is bullcrap.
