They “just don’t want to” because it’d cost a bunch to certify, crash test, calibrate, and assemble. The technical limitation is not that the trans can’t hold the power.

I think it was the statement that he would be letting go of one of his Teslas and replacing it was a gas car, as well as the insinuation that maybe there are certain applications that they are not as well suited for that did it, along with the idea that he’d be doing more non-EV content.

They aren’t being petty, there is a chance the Tracing Point is illegal. Tracing Point is REQUIRED by the rules to design and build the brake ducts themselves or get them from a non competing supplier. They can copy Merc as long as it’s just looking at pics and designing their own version. If those brake ducts are Read more

If anyone doesn’t buy a Bronco because the 400 ft/lb of torque in the 2.7 TT V6 isn’t enough power they are wack. In my mind, the engines in the Bronco are one of the upsides compared to Wrangler. The 2.3 offers more torque than the Pentastar V6, and if you read or watch any reviews of the Ranger with that engine, Read more

I just saw the Throttlehouse race between the GT500 and the c8 (Z51).
While the C8 edged out ahead, the ZL1 tops their leader board (so far anyways.)

Agree 100%. But the Mustang just looks so much better. They nailed the retro/modern mosh-up. GM, however blew it with the latest iteration of the Camaro, the front is rental car ugly and it would be great to be able to see out of the damn thing.

Honestly, muscle cars are as much about style as they are performance, and all the performance in the world can’t make up for this front bumper:

I’ve said for a long time that if I won the lottery, I’d buy one of the new Camaros in a heartbeat. Who wouldn’t want basically a Matchbox Car you can drive around every few weeks? It wouldn’t be anything more than a comparatively expensive toy. Read more
