Biggest Automotive Missteps: Jaguar X-Type(Jul 19, 2012)The problem I have with Kias/Hyundais is their cheap components. Their connectors snap if you look at em the wrong way, and the ones that come in just don't seem to hold up well. Maybe they've improved, I hope they have. I won't be buying one
Tug-a-Truck Tragedies(Jul 06, 2012)There are 2 kinds of idler arms on a Chevy front end, brand new and bent. I see just as many come in as any other.
Tug-a-Truck Tragedies(Jul 06, 2012)Personally I find the entire argument idiotic. I work on em all, ford, chevy, dodge, toyota. Each have their strengths and weaknesses. Fords like coil packs and breaking spark plugs. Dodge dadhboards like to crack
Japanese Tuner Icons: Mazda RX-7(Jun 27, 2012)I'm a muscle fan to the core but I like these a lot, mainly because you don't see many that have been butchered by a high school sophmore with underglow and a wide body kit
Japanese Tuner Icons: Mazda RX-7(Jun 27, 2012)On a completely unrelated note, I like the look of this. Not a fan of the hid kit though, would've gone with the white ones instead
Japanese Tuner Icons: Honda Civic(Jun 24, 2012)And before you claim you can upgrade the suspension, you can do the same modifications on any number of classic and late model muscle cars.
Japanese Tuner Icons: Honda Civic(Jun 24, 2012)@DeUahn had you continued reading you'd see the part where the high hp civics are confined to drag racing because their suspension can't handle anything else. And if you think 400hp in a FWD car is going to fare well on a twisty road you are mistaken
Japanese Tuner Icons: Honda Civic(Jun 24, 2012)@Patrick we had a civic come in the other day for an intake manifold gasket. The owner told us to be careful because the motor was "built". Cold air intake, obligitory fart can and a chrome valve cover.
Spectacular Pagani Huayra Reviewed(Jun 22, 2012)The guy named PORSCHE claims Porsche makes the best car. No bias there at all lol. I'm not a big fan of the looks but it's growing on me little by little.
2014 BMW M3 to Pack 480hp Inline-Six(Jun 21, 2012)Superchargers are being fased out simply due to emissions. A turbo uses power the engine already makes, and when used they increase efficiency. SC's draw power from the engine itself, and that cuts mileage
Homologation Icons: Plymouth Superbird(Jun 21, 2012)@Josh that fact is 100% true. These won by such an overwhelming margin the other teams made a fuss because they simply couldn't keep up. I believe it was Richard Petty who was quoted "if you can't outrun em, outlaw em"
Bodacious BMW Pickups(Jun 20, 2012)I fail to see the practicality here. You lose the back seats you would use in a car, and wouldn't be able to haul anything you would use a truck for. If you want a car get a car. Want a truck, get a truck
Bodacious BMW Pickups(Jun 20, 2012)@Nick as a redneck, I could do much better than this. We have actual trucks
Homologation Icons: Lancia Stratos HF(Jun 20, 2012)@Justin the distance from the center of the crank to the rod journal determines the stroke of the engine, you get displacement by multiplying bore and stroke.
Legendary Automotive Clunkers(Jun 09, 2012)What killed Ford with the Pinto is that after learning about the design flaw, Ford decided that instead of spending around $5 I believe to fix the problem on every car, they decided it was more cost-effective to pay the $220K for the occassional
Pony Car Icons, Part 2: Plymouth Barracuda(May 31, 2012)@Brian true, I was thinking more along the lines of the "less ameneties" part. I think it'd be awesome if they'd offer a bare-bones, affordable muscle. I mean the original didn't even have carpets, just give me a V8 and a 6 speed. All I need
Pony Car Icons, Part 3: Chevrolet Camaro(May 31, 2012)No matter what, you can't beat the cool of a classic muscle. If you've never driven one then you don't know. I've had the priveledge to drive a 69 Chevelle with a 496 stroker, definetely an experience like no other
Pony Car Icons, Part 2: Plymouth Barracuda(May 30, 2012)@Chris yeah, needs some Plum Crazy or Hemi Orange. I've seen one like this in gunmetal with a matte black hood and a red stripe on the back, nearly made a mess of my trousers
Pony Car Icons, Part 1: Ford Mustang(May 29, 2012)@Patrick same here, there's loads of em around my neck of the woods but they're half bondo and half corroded paint. And at least 2 smoke like there's not a single ring in the motor
Pony Car Icons, Part 1: Ford Mustang(May 29, 2012)I've seen a few good looking fox-bodies, but a majority of the ones I've seen they tried to improve the looks and it just made it 10x worse. Projectors and a body kit do not work on an LX
