This guy is an excellent example of why it can be invaluable to choose a good racing school to go to. The only thing worse than his video is his explanation. He says he's been tracking his car for "eight years," but clearly he has learned very little. I'm not ragging on HPDE type education, but it can really vary by… » 3/27/15 5:19pm Friday 5:19pm

A few years ago I knew of an orange one for sale. I wanted it dearly. ORANGE man! It was orange! Bonus, if I am remembering correctly, none of the shooting brakes were made in England, so your safe there. » 3/24/15 3:04pm 3/24/15 3:04pm

This is bullshit put out there by the oil companies that want you to "fund" their business with 10k or once a year oil changes. Seeing is not believing and there is no need to give into this fear mongering and drag your ass to some shop once a year for an oil change. Ice cream, Mandrake, children's ice cream! Good… » 3/21/15 9:09am 3/21/15 9:09am

This things amazing and I want it badly, unfortunately there seems to be a discrepancy between my definition of "stratospheric" and Ablogtowatch's. Apparently price is: 12,673 francs (excluding taxes and shipping) which is roughly $12,751.87

What I find really interesting is this: when we have high level of AI doing our daily tasks, like driving, but also more than that, our whole economy and workforce is going to have to change (possibly revolutionize). Not simply just because computers/machines are going to be doing the jobs of a lot of humans (think… » 3/18/15 12:43pm 3/18/15 12:43pm

This probably the only time this season your going to see the word "awesome" paired with "McLaren Honda" and not including something along the lines of "disaster," "failure" etc. » 3/15/15 6:18pm 3/15/15 6:18pm

The fact that it has been 7 years since the last service means that is MEANINGLESS!!! Your on the hook for about 10K if you're going to do it right. Right means new OEM fluids for everything, timing belt, check valve clearances. Ferrari's are special and I don't think most people really have a grasp on that. » 3/15/15 5:55pm 3/15/15 5:55pm

Not that anyone listens to me, but I've been saying for quite some time now, when I have a sports car on the street I want it to be about driving involvement even if it means shifting five tenths of a second slower. » 3/13/15 3:20pm 3/13/15 3:20pm

Nobody understands until they make that breakthrough, vision is incredibly important to driving well and it has to come first, it has to be there before you can go any further. » 3/04/15 2:47pm 3/04/15 2:47pm

I'm a 32 year old man who always preferred and skewed and bought European (used) and later Japanese, because when your shelling out for a new car, they are hard to beat on price and quality. When I lost my car in Sandy I eventually plunked down for a Focus ST, was great fun on the 3 test drives and there was no new… » 2/20/15 4:28pm 2/20/15 4:28pm

The 1995 WRC car they were cought cheating. That alone forever immortalized the Celica name, and if that's not good enough for you, then because, SEGA Rally. Note I pourposly picked a picture from the Safari Rally because that was one amazing bad-ass WRC event. » 2/20/15 10:29am 2/20/15 10:29am

So without doing any kind of work on my end, does A123 supply products for any non-automotive fields? I'll bet they do, but if they don't, then that tells us this Apple thing is going to be automotive. I HIGHLY doubt it will be a car, it makes far, far FAR more sense for them to supply components and technology to… » 2/19/15 10:10am 2/19/15 10:10am
