Plus crossovers are a way to print money, just ask Jeep. I can't imagine a bolt crossover not selling well for an electric, however it is 2019
Yeah, the Camaro is so good right now from a performance standpoint and the ZR1 isn't getting much faster with each generation. I think the right move is to let the Corvette make a move to be faster rather than limit the Camaro.
On the flip side, most of the people I see driving new Corvettes are in the same age as people buying Harley Davidson motorcycles. I think there is a contingent of traditionalists that want a front engine Corvette that are dying off, and then a different group that the Corvette appeals to because if performance for…
I was thinking the same thing. I also get the feeling watching formula drift is about understanding three way the car rotates through the corners, race cars traveling fast have much more subtle movements because if you are driving them like a formula drift car you are probably setting seriously slow lap times. It…
I have not, but I did watch Ben Hur, the concept seems the same. The crowning touch has to be that they also do that to the spare tire.
I’m glad I haven’t seen outrageous wheel spacers on the road yet. It is profoundly dangerous but when has that stopped someone with a welder and a dream? Even smaller half inch spacers put extra stress on wheel studs and suspension.
My only regret is that I have but one star to give for that comment
Who the heck makes a GTO inspired wagon with a 2.56 to 1 rear end? I understand the need to highway cruise, but it's never the real deal so put an overdrive automatic in it with a minimum 3.55 ring gear and a positrac so the thing can leave it's mark. This just screams I had all these parts laying around so I bolted…
A couple years ago I got teched by a guy who was rebuilding his mustang because he became airborne when a tire flew off. He commented that with my closed like nuts and short studs it could happen on my MGB too. It made sense so I got longer studs and open lugs, I may never know if it made a difference but it is much…
No, because today's Nascar involves one rule change with unintended consequences, then instead of backpedaling they make another rule, often the next week.
I despise flying, my anxiety level raises the day before the trip but my wife is from New York and we live in my homestate of Montana. I rode from whitefish to St cloud once, 24 hours. I say this because despite the three fights with my wife, security, my bodies reaction to stress it’s still better than a trip on the…
I don’t know if the morons should autocross the most. I had to work the course while a guy in a tuned Evo with terrible aftermarket suspension, cheap toyos and the, made the throttle and the and will work it out. Scary as hell, you saw the car twitch and then lurch in a direction. It was satisfing whopping him in…
I get there same thing in my Honda sport hatch, I honestly think people assume it’s a type r or something. One time was some guy in a WRX while I was with my wife and had my daughter in a car seat.
I imagine if you run a pump off the driveshaft and use a filter and coolers it should run pretty cool
I do wonder if there disadvantage of removing the heat of multiple clutches is offset by them not being used as frequently.
Yeah, it doesn't seem that strange, if people could handle it and manipulate it I think they would see it's not that complex. Really I see this as a more elegant solution than the dual clutch design
I think it's more that instead of transferring the torque through dogs or syncros it's transferred through a clutch. Gears in either design are constantly engaged and spin freely in the shaft unless engaged.
It looks like they used three shafts to offer more combination of ratios with less gears and instead of using syncros or dogs to engage the gears use a clutch. It's clever, but I think if people had a 3d model to manipulate they would see it's not as complicated as it initially appears.
I’m just mad, because when I bought my Silverado the terrible dealer lied and told me it was a Ram.
Right, I know two people who had always bought used cars that were in the market for a used Toyota and bought a new one.
