Cars and Coffee Boston July Meet(9 hours ago)Ya, very fun. no power steering, manual 5 spd, wouldn't break 185kph but you can have all the fun you can handle below that speed on public roads anyway. Luckily I survived my teenage wreckless driving years lol.
Cars and Coffee Boston July Meet(12 hours ago)Carlos - it was difficult to keep up with repairs. Between coolant leaks, starter problems, fuel tank leaks, and pesky electrical problems (cruise stuck on full acceleration was a little scary) it was a burden for a 17 yr old payin his own bills
Audi and Porsche Arguing Over Technology(19 hours ago)I wouldn't mind owning one of these. It looks odd for sure but that's the beauty of ownership; most of the time you'll be behind the wheel surrounded by a fantastic interior.
Cars and Coffee Boston July Meet(19 hours ago)this was my first car. Black with Red interior. Sure do miss it, it was very fun although not too reliable or fuel efficient.
Riding Shotgun in the Koenigsegg One:1(Jul 22, 2014)And how is a 7:16 respectable when cars with a lot less hp are running below 7mins? There is a lot of mechanical grip I'm sure but somehow it doesn't translate into usable performance on track. It's a bit mind boggling to me actually.
Riding Shotgun in the Koenigsegg One:1(Jul 22, 2014)The fastest official time for a ksegg on the ring was for the 900+hp CCX at over 7.5 mins. Quoting the driver the lap time was "not that good". Especially considering its hp and weight.
Riding Shotgun in the Koenigsegg One:1(Jul 22, 2014)Only seeing it being developed on a runway would be a bit concerning except that's the only place they get used lol. until I see a ring time it's a "one" trick pony imo.
The New Challenger SRT Hell-Capped in 2015?(Jul 21, 2014)why all the dodge hate? You guys should be happy they came up with the hellcat. They are keeping the hp war alive so it's a win win no matter which brand you favour.
The New Challenger SRT Hell-Capped in 2015?(Jul 20, 2014)Yeah, this is nonsense. No manufacturer is going to offer up a limited production for a low msrp. They are just shooting themselves in the foot. This sounds like a "buy'em while you can" pitch to me.
Dodge Releases Pricing for the 2015 Challenger(Jul 17, 2014)I'm not sure who would buy a hellcat and not drive the shit out of it. Old men who literally shit their pants the first time they floor it maybe?
Check for seat stains. Otherwise it's safe to say it's been beat on.
Dodge Releases Pricing for the 2015 Challenger(Jul 17, 2014)v ya. If I were looking for a musclecar, my search just ended. That's one heck of a bargain and probably another nail in the Vipers coffin. It just makes the Viper seem unreasonably expensive now imo.
Pirelli Previews 18-Inch Tire Concept(Jul 15, 2014)properly. This basically turns into vicious circle degrading performance.
With less sidewall, that illiminates many variables and will make it easier on the teams to create a competitive car.
Pirelli Previews 18-Inch Tire Concept(Jul 15, 2014)actually act as part of the suspension and aerodynamics components, the handling of the cars depends very much on the tires. If they can't build enough heat in them then the internal pressures don't get high enough to allow the aerodynamics to work
Pirelli Previews 18-Inch Tire Concept(Jul 15, 2014)Cool! Looks more modern. And if it translates into better street tires I'm all for it. The cars suspension will have to be redesigned but I think this will be very good for F1 and it's spectators. Right now, because the sidewalls are so big and
Check Out This $101,000 Chevy Camaro Saleen 620 Black Label(Jul 14, 2014) This will appeal to the hardcore camaro aficionado only. As a complete package I can appreciate what they did. Regular joes will fail to see the value in it though, not that I would blame them. I would sooner buy a ZL1 and save a hefty bundle.
Rod Stewart’s Ferrari F40 Heads to Auction(Jul 14, 2014)It does actually. It smashed records with the best of them, records that still stand. It's just nitwits like you that choose not to acknowledge those accomplishments because lil Wayne sang a song about it.
Standard Bearers: BMW M4 Vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray(Jul 13, 2014)Carlos - It was a regular C6 but was upgraded to a Z06, including pfat suspension, 441ci LS7, wide body full leather interior from an 08 model. It was a beast of a car. I can post a link to my YouTube page if anyone wants to see it rip the 1/4 mile.
Standard Bearers: BMW M4 Vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray(Jul 13, 2014)I gotta say, as a vette guy, this looks better. It's a much cleaner design.
Given the choice I'm not sure which I would take honestly. I'm not really a fan of the C7, even if it's so much better than the C6. Z06 is a different story though.
Standard Bearers: BMW M4 Vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray(Jul 13, 2014)a heavy foot and lacked feel.
For just everyday fun the corvette is the best car I've ever driven. It doesn't have the solid build quality feel of the Porsche but it puts a bigger smile on your face regardless.
Standard Bearers: BMW M4 Vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray(Jul 13, 2014)understand why. The Corvette is simply more accessible and therefore more fun. There's no waiting for boost, it's just immediate thrust at any rpm, in any gear. The 911's steering was so immediate it was unnerving, also the brakes required quite
Standard Bearers: BMW M4 Vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray(Jul 13, 2014)My brother recently sold his NA 600hp C6 Corvette and bought a nicely modded '03 911 turbo. I encouraged him to do this. After a few days with the Porsche he was really regretting his decision. I was really surprised but after driving the 911 I
What We Know About the New Audi R8(Jul 13, 2014)A diesel supercar from Audi. Cool!
Very interested to see that. More evidence that we are witnessing the process of extinction of the manual transmission. American manufacturers will follow suit eventually in order to compete.
Listen to the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Roar!(Jul 12, 2014)It's a muscle car Ken. Lap times are as relevant to it as burnouts are to a 911 turbo. Two completely different cars, both totally awesome in their own way.
This hellcat will be a collectors item nearly as much as the Z28 I think.
Could the Bugatti Veyron Successor Be a Hybrid?(Jul 10, 2014)I doubt it will handle any better than the Veyron. If they plan on keeping the same motor plus adding another electric motor/charger/batteries/copper cabling, all of which add significant weight, it will most certainly be heavier than the old model
How Much Oil is There Left, Really?(Jul 07, 2014)Mike - typically, we only dispose of salt water into dried up oil wells. When they pressure up we have to find a new hole to inject to. With seismic technology we know exactly how big a cavern is so this rarely happens. At least that's how we
