Everything changed in 2014 when the current hybrid engine regulations came into effect. Renault had nailed the V8 formula, but seemed to completely botch the hybrid V6 setup which is much, much more complicated. Read more

It seems as though the latest version of the 2021 rule proposals have the MGU-H staying, with engine regulations remaining essentially unchanged from where they are now.

They should also Google BLUE WAFFLE to see if there are any Smurf-related breakfast tie-ins going on.

Are most of their videos hosted on YouTube? Could you open the videos you DO want to watch in a new tab direct on YouTube and bypass the muting of the Jalopnik domain? Just a thought... Read more

I have to wonder though, if the structure is made of “thinner, lighter material” does this mean whatever impacts still occur will cause more significant damage?  The bridge in its current configuration seems to be able to withstand a beating pretty well, but if fewer accidents end up with larger repairs to the bridge Read more

In Chrome, right-click on the Jalopnik tab and you should have the option to “Mute Site” so that it automatically mutes any videos on Jalopnik. You’ll have to do this for every site you visit that you have this problem with, but it stays muted until you manually undo it.

I voted Nice Price because it wouldn’t be a huge investment for an automotive design school to buy it and use it as an example of what NOT to do. There are so many lessons here, it would really be an incredible value for many years to come. (They could even share it with automotive marketing students as well to make Read more

My point about them earning minimum wage is both a comment on their own ambition/ability and the company that employs them. Maybe it’s different where you are but in my area the major chains (Zone, O’Reilly, Advance) have “assistant managers” making $.50 over minimum wage. Read more

It shouldn’t be a shock that the big parts-chain clerk making minimum wage didn’t want to put the effort into figuring out your battery, or didn’t have the experience/knowledge to figure it out even if he wanted to. Read more

That’s the piece of perspective that’s missing from this article! We are talking about traveling to the opposite side of the globe, non-stop, inside of a day. A journey that 100 years ago would likely take months and carried with it a significant chance of death or disease. 10 years ago it was possible but with Read more

GM’s Tier-2 “in progression” line workers make about $18/hour base pay, which works out to about $38k/year before overtime, bonuses or profit sharing. They also have 97% of their health care premiums paid for by GM, which is a significant value by itself. Read more

The person probably wasn’t being a jerk or playing games, it sounds like they just wanted to make sure you got what you wanted. The size below Venti is “Grande”, which means large in a few languages. They probably just didn’t want to guess and give you the wrong size. Starbucks isn’t alone in this btw, plenty of Read more

My wife would probably buy them. She bleeds maize & blue! Usually as soon as all of our M Den purchases are paid off, a new catalog shows up and the cycle starts again...

FYI if it makes your next Starbucks experience a little calmer, “Venti” is the Italian word for “twenty”, and the Starbucks Venti (hot) is 20 oz. So, it’s not a word they made up, it’s just a fancy way of describing the actual size of the drink.

21 for me just on this page as I’m reading it. And to be honest, I don’t mind regular banner ads and such, even the targeted ones. I don’t begrudge them needing to make money off of us and I’d turn off my adblocker if those were the only types of ads they used. Read more

Is “Who Moved $50,000 Worth of Stolen Cheese?” a modern white-collar-crime sequel to the famous business book?
