YEAH, I just love it when I hear Torch’s nasal jump all over my music.

There is no point in putting it on a production car, but having Vantablack on a development vehicle instead of the zebra camo would be optimal. It 100% hides all design cues.

Lithium ion fires are extremely dangerous compared to fuel related fires. You need specialized equipment to put out a battery fire since they are a Class-D fire. A copper powder extinguisher is required. If the firefighters aren’t trained and equipped properly, they will likely try to hit the fire with water. Lithium Read more

A typical diesel tractor for highway use is around 20,000 lbs. If the Tesla weighs 27k, it’s going to be a huge problem for fleets. They will lose 7k payload capacity. That being said, I’m pretty confident it doesn’t weigh that much.

That is absolutely not true. The amount of air coming out of those thrusters would be frightening. 50kg of air is about 10,000 gallons once decompressed. If we use Scott Manley’s 10 second estimate from above, that is about 1000 gallons of air rushing out from underneath the car every second, not to mention the Read more

My coworker told me a story where his friend “stoled” a car. I was like, “wait, wait, hold on just a second...”

I’m right there with you. I always read the entire manual of any car I have ever purchased or have been interested in. Any car you buy since 2000 or so has a whole host of ridiculous features THAT YOU PAID FOR, so you might as well know how to use them. Read more

I dropped my E39 M5 off the jack stands and cracked the front bumper in half. I’m lucky that was the only damage. The brake rotors held up the bulk of the weight of the car so nothing else got blown up. The worst part is that I was jacking up the rear to do the sway bar end links and I could have just lowered the Read more

As and Aerodynamics engineer who works with Computational Fluid Dynamics every day, I can’t cringe at these simulations hard enough.

The Cascadia is much bigger and heavier than the M2. Weight matters.

I was considering buying it so I could show up to all the Ford GT meets. It will be the ultimate trailer queen. Never driven, just love the look of it.

This was my first assumption as well. Heating fuel is not uncommon at all in industrial settings. Back then, every engine was basically an industrial installment mounted to wheels so I’m not surprised they would use some of the same techniques.

I think this is indicative of Toyota’s disconnect with enthusiasts. They don’t understand that only interesting cars need teasers. Furthermore they don’t understand what an interesting car is. Read more

Dodge Colt Vista. Can’t remember the year for the life of me since I was 12. Ours looked almost exactly like this one, dents and all.

My wife and I were out on weekend vacation on the Oregon Coast a few years back. We headed out to one of the State Parks to go for a quick hike, and I must not have been paying attention to the fuel gauge as we drove out on the access road. When we got back into the Mazdaspeed3 we had at the time, the range said “2 Read more

Those small cars are fun and all, but how about the best selling commercial truck on the market?
