The 370z wasn’t a great enthusiast car from the start, it either needed to lose 500lbs, or gain 75hp. The VQ engine hates to rev out, the chasis wasn’t as nimble as a traditional Japanese sportscar but it didn’t have the power of a pony car. V6 Mustang performance at a GT price. The interior didn’t age well in either Read more

I highly recommend Hankook RS4's, I got 21 trackdays out of my last set and they behave well on track.

Last Saturday my Novice Track student was a 15 year old with a learner’s permit. His dad was one of the other instructors.

As a Texan here’s my take: Houston, Dallas, and Austin are firmly Democratic (and have been for decades). San Antonio has moved Democratic and Fort Worth has gone from deep red to purple. Read more

The original Prius is just about at Jalopy status now, if it’s beat up, you could consider the rougher ones as good hoopties at the very least.

The 5.0 has 20hp on the BRZ, and over 300lbs. The real difference is the torque, and a BRZ can brake and turn. Read more
