SRT Viper ACR Coming in 2014(Feb 25, 2013)Didn't mean vettes are "boring", so to speak, but the fact of the matter is there is a 74 year old retiree in town with a blue Grand Sport. And when I see a grandfather driving a car, it kinda loses its edge for me.
Top 5 1000-HP Supercars(Jan 25, 2013)Personally I think a guy building the world's fastest car in a shed in his backyard is cool as hell, a lot more interesting than some global company building with computer models and hundreds of simulations.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)They didn't have access to generations of small blocks like we did, they never really got the good stuff. You can kind of understand why they think ALL domestic autos are cheap and flimsy when the only "US"cars they have access to are Ka's and Aveos
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)Well said Kwasi. Another reason I think they hold that reputation is all, if not most cars sold in England under a domestic name are specifically catered to the European market, small wheezy motor and cheap materials for a cheap sticker price.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)@Matt lol that is an excellent point. Personally, I don't get the whole argument in the first place. I'm a car guy first an foremost, I let the car itself dictate if I like it, not where it's from or who made it. By just relegating your choices to
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)@Tim you can't reason with a crazy person. From what I've seen from most Euro fans, they watch a few episodes of Top Gear, think "hey, I'll go along with that!" but when pressed for facts to back up their claims they'll usually respond
All-New BMW M3 Leaked Online(Jan 22, 2013)BMW was using the I6 for years before they even considered the V8, it's not downsizing it's returning to the car's roots. I6s are torquey little jokers, no complaints here
Top 5 Alternative European Supercars(Jan 19, 2013)Anything past 150mph is just for bragging rights, I'd rather have something that can shoot off the line and do 2nd and 3rd gear rolling burnouts than worry about trying to reach 200
Ram HD Can Tow 30,000 Pounds(Jan 11, 2013)To get to the engine on the newer SuperDutys, you have to jack the cab off the frame. In my experience, GM and Dodge are a little better about giving you some room to work, the Cummins having the obvious advantage there, inline motor
Ram HD Can Tow 30,000 Pounds(Jan 11, 2013)@Jack as the owner of a 93 F250 I respectfully disagree. I can barely fit my hand down either side of the motor. And not to mention the 3V 5.4s are a nightmare to change plugs in, if you don't snap one off in the head you're a friggin wizard
Ram HD Can Tow 30,000 Pounds(Jan 10, 2013)@Patrick doubt that would happen. Cummins has already renewed their contract with Dodge once, and has proven to be a valuable partnership. That, and ford's making their own engines now
SeriousHP Turbocharges 360 Modena to 791HP(Jan 09, 2013)@Jack well no surprise there, they cost twice as much. And as far as engine longevity is concerned, the higher the revs go the shorter the shelf life. To get a motor to sustain extreme revs without exploding the tolerances have to be extremely tight
The Best-Handling Camaro Ever?(Jan 09, 2013)@Carl I think I'd be tempted to do the same. I'd love to see a T/A Chally, or that Challenger ACR concept a few years back
Rare Hemi Challenger on the Auction Block(Jan 03, 2013)That's why you can find old 67 Camaros and 70 Chevelles with decent bodies that have been sitting for decades, and 5 year old Focuses and Kias are falling apart at the seams
