Dodging the Trend: Ram 1500 to Maintain Steel Body(Aug 26, 2014)Guns don't kill. But they can be used for killing. So can fists. Or, even cars. Cars kill more people each year than guns. It's people that kill, Mitchell. I know you don't understand and sadly that's because you've not grown up around them. But don't drink that kool-aid so quickly.
Dodging the Trend: Ram 1500 to Maintain Steel Body(Aug 26, 2014)Ford's smaller tt V6 will rival the economy diesel and undercut it's price. But it won't make as much torque and won't haul as well. The diesel is the best of all world's for a truck owner. Great city milage and great, albeit not as high as the more potent gas engines, towing. But no gasser will ever return milage like a diesel. And probably never touch it's reliability.
Dodging the Trend: Ram 1500 to Maintain Steel Body(Aug 26, 2014)Ram arguably offers more for your money than the other two. Air suspension, or coil rear Springs. 8 speed transmissions, a v8 a v6 and a diesel, more than just long and short bed. The tech in them is great and they look good. Yes the styling is getting a little old compared to the new f150
Ram Boosts 2015 Truck Lineup to 865 lb-ft of Torque(Aug 25, 2014)Mitchell is not fact is your opinion. I've owned a ram 2500. It dad a great truck. The Cummins is a superb engine. And the new ram (ram is its own company now, under fiat same as Dodge and jeep are separate) is a very very good truck. Stick to your knowledge base.
How Much Does the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Cost?(Aug 25, 2014)I actually like the hell cat (engine bay) more. You can see the valve covers and whatnot else of the engine. But then I may not have seen the production engine so far. As only one I've seen is the engine with the bare aluminum super on top.
How Much Does the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Cost?(Aug 24, 2014)Aluminum or not it is visually very unimpressive. Which it could have been at least good looking. But even with the cover I certainly wouldn't mind opening the hood to see this if it were in my garage.
Chevrolet Reveals New Silverado Rally Editions(Aug 22, 2014)If an object is high enough to hit that, then it hits it. If it is high enough to hit the bumper it will hit the bumper no matter what about the valence. It is there to help manage airflow around and under the truck and on cars.
Chevrolet Reveals New Silverado Rally Editions(Aug 22, 2014)Ugh, I'm sorry but it is not a bumper guard. It isn't there to protect anything. In many cases these aren't even attached to the bumper but rather the radiator support. Do you think a 1/8 inch piece of plastic would do anything? It isn't strong enough to move a bumper up and over a parking curb. It certainly isn't moving a steel bumper over a large rock
Chevrolet Reveals New Silverado Rally Editions(Aug 22, 2014)On a side note to that. It's a design aspect not many other manufactures go for. I'm not convinced it is as effective as it should be to be on cars such as the corvette which has had this little lip for a long time. But this is GM, they will do things there way even when it isn't necessarily the best idea. See recalls as source material to back that up.
Chevrolet Reveals New Silverado Rally Editions(Aug 22, 2014)It's not there for curbs. It's there for air. It helps the aerodynamic profile of the truck. It is after all a truck and a lot of air makes it under them. Air under a vehicle is bad. Produces a turbulence that reduces fuel economy and can affect ride comfort and high-speed handling. You won't see these on off road oriented trucks because of the refocus of capabilities.
Yes! Lamborghini is Planning a RWD Huracan(Aug 22, 2014)It's really not even that dangerous. If you respect it. Any car even a 170 hp camry can be dangerous know your limits, know your car. Don't try things that belong in a track on the street and you won't really have to worry about it. It's not like rwd automatically means it wants to kill you.
Vettel Pilots Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge at Spa(Aug 22, 2014)Impressive car. But the Q50 has not been well reviewed. I wonder what all the car has had changed in its transformation into this. I do really like this car looks wise more than its competitors.
Yes! Lamborghini is Planning a RWD Huracan(Aug 21, 2014)And "might as well be in a '60s mustsng" is ignorant at best. None of these cars are putting power down to 185 section bias plied tires. Tires and suspension can and do, in most cases, completely nullify that comment.
Yes! Lamborghini is Planning a RWD Huracan(Aug 21, 2014)You realize that racing almost exclusively uses rwd? How about the P1 and laferrari, all McLaren actually. And all but one Ferrari? The best possible build is this from a physics aspect. Also they're mid engined. Not rear. That layout isn't used by any sportsman besides the 911.
Reason #1 to Get Rich: Hennessey Venom GT Vs Pagani Huayra(Aug 21, 2014)Hmm I'm mistaken? Ok so pagani who has pioneered their own special kind of carbon fiber and who machines every piece of metal in the interior and on the trim from solid aluminum. Even the wheels is inferior. Whereas Hennessy, who just modifies an existing chassis, builds a motor and slaps it all together is superior quality? No, I'm not mistaken.
Reason #1 to Get Rich: Hennessey Venom GT Vs Pagani Huayra(Aug 20, 2014)Whereas the pagani is approached differently. Not only is it powerful but it is beautiful. They have a passion for craftsmanship and for building more than just speed. I'd say more than any company out there they sweat the small details more.
Reason #1 to Get Rich: Hennessey Venom GT Vs Pagani Huayra(Aug 20, 2014)I don't know. I think having eyes and a functioning brain make for a unique ability to see things and form an opinion. It's clear by looking at just pictures of these two cars that they are in many ways similar but in most ways completely different. I'm not saying the venom isn't a good car. I'm saying you can tell the passion and knowledge base of that car caters to speed, to engines and power.
Reason #1 to Get Rich: Hennessey Venom GT Vs Pagani Huayra(Aug 20, 2014)The venom is fast. I really like it. But pagani is a totally different animal. They're leaps and bounds better quality wise. And have much more, "special" to their cars. Pagani all day. Every day. They are proof that a ture passion and care for their product and the refusal to cut corners makes for one truly epic car.
Yes! Lamborghini is Planning a RWD Huracan(Aug 20, 2014)Rwd is so much more fun. Coming from a mildly modded 04 gto to my current 14 wrx I miss the rwd all the time. But sometimes you gotta let things go and the WRX isn't a bad replacement. Please offer this Lamborghini, the existence of a badass Lamborghini and rwd is automotive bliss.
How Much Does the 2015 Corvette Z06 Weigh?(Aug 20, 2014)Also, cars are going to get lighter. They simply have too. Emissions and fuel requirement regs are pushing this very quickly. Automakers will have to find out how to incorporate the required crash and safety requirements in a car that can actually meet those other aspects too. Only current way to do that is weight loss. So don't be surprised to see them lose quote a bit here soon.
How Much Does the 2015 Corvette Z06 Weigh?(Aug 20, 2014)Well considering the mustang weighs just over 3700, and the potential to step on corvettes toes if it gets too light I would imagine Chevy will almost literally sandbag the car to stay with the Mustang weight wise and off the corvettes turf.
How Much Does the 2015 Corvette Z06 Weigh?(Aug 19, 2014)Well hang on here let's take a look. The curb weight of the Cadillac ATS coupe is 3696 lbs. That's the awd premium with the V6. The camaro will have less plush niceties, but a larger motor and no awd. I would not be surprised to see the camaro come in at 3600 to maybe 3700 tops considering they are on the same platform.
Bling Backorder: There Aren't Enough Cadillac Escalades(Aug 19, 2014)I'm half Irish I certainly don't a have anything against where you're from I just don't like you. You're a sniveling little punk bitch who can't contribute a damn bit of actual car banter. All you do is spew useless bias around and call it banter.
How Much Does the 2015 Corvette Z06 Weigh?(Aug 19, 2014)This is why the corvette may go mid engine... The next camaro will likely only weigh in around 3600 lbs. Factor in the High performance variants and you have an internal competitor to the vette.
Bling Backorder: There Aren't Enough Cadillac Escalades(Aug 19, 2014)Haha you know nothing dipshit I make 140k a year. This is and was my style purpose. To get your dumb as fuck send a bit riled up. Isn't that why you comment? You've yet to provide an iota of anything meaningful on this website. You waste of oxygen and resources.
Bling Backorder: There Aren't Enough Cadillac Escalades(Aug 19, 2014)Ion or whatever his dad excise of patents named him can suck it. No one cares. This all has been me having a few beers and being bored watching the sun rise (I work nights). Though I honestly would not have minded if they had tossed him off a cliff the minutet his patents beheld such idiocy.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 19, 2014)Ehh even laferrari is still a road car. Though power disparity and the Ferrari's level of performance it would be a close call. The fxx and new p1 are non road legal race cars without a race series to compete in. Those would probably hurt the feelings of quite a few GT3 class cars. But the road versions shouldn't.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)But outright speed isn't the only measure of a car. And lastly, I do, wholeheartedly believe, that if GM steps into this game, they'll be making a car that can not only compete but raise the bar.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)They have the chassis design and needed knowledge. Third the 911 has in many ways out done the corvette at that very game you mentioned Hugh, it is more practical, has been redefined and tweaked and improved for quite a bit longer than the corvette has ever been a contender. It may not always be as fast
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)First, the458 isn't the end all be all. It's good but it isn't a complete categorical leader in its food chain. Too many other cars get close or out do it in different criteria. Second, it would take a redesign but GM has been playing with the idea of a mid engine corvette for ages. The C7 was designed as a possible Mid engine rwd car...
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)So the next one, like I mentioned earlier will be better for sure but to solidify it's Chevy supremacy they may build and sell a model of corvette higher that's mid engined and priced higher with more tech and a further improved cabin.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)The current vette was designed from the start with mid engine in mind but as usual bean counting pushed it into it's direction now. Which as it is in incredibly capable. If the camaro comes too close it would cannibalize the vette sales as a whole. Itll never out do a vette but if it is too close why pay?
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)Gary, the reason this is being considered is the camaro will be redesigned soon. With the new architecture, the alpha platform. We can expect a large drop in weight. Somewhere around 3400 to 3500 and power to be 450+ ish. This will be putting it too close to the corvette as a whole performance wise. So the vette needs to get better.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)Based on the rumor mill I've been reading lately at least. The plan is to push the corvette into its own brand in a way. Not like SRT but a sub brand of Chevy so that the corvette can encompass two models. A "base" or entry level front engine rwd car we have now and a top of the line mid engine car like the rumors.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 18, 2014)The LS and LT motors might be "large" displacement wise but it's actually a very compact engine. Its not too big. Which is why there are LS motors in boutique supercars around the world. This will slot in above the front engine corvette and be a 150k+ car at its minimum. If it happens.
The Next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Will be Mid-Engined(Aug 17, 2014)As it stands, the structure that's being rumored is to turn corvette into something of its own. With a fme style corvette as an entry level car. Then have a "Zora" corvette which is rme to top the performance totem pole. By doing this they will essentially make their current customer base happy while pushing the brand up the line.
