Lastnight I was driving down a dark mountain road just outside of Denver in a horrible Nissan Sentra rental. I had no idea a car could be so bland and boring... And awful, as the worst thing I had driven for any length of time up until this point was an older Mazda6, but that’s not the point of this post.
According to the Front Page, and sources such as Forza, the Focus RS and like cars fall into the ‘Super Hot Hatch’ category. At what point do we enter the Hyper Hot Hatch? Or even the Mega Hot Hatch?
Exactly one week ago, I got rear ended in my baby. Sexual innuendos aside, the car may be totalled and I’m preparing for the worst. But hopefully I can make the best of an awful situation.
Hey, Oppo! I've recently come up with an idea for an art experiment for one of the walls in my room. I don't know if it's ever been attempted before, but to be fair I haven't looked to find out. Either way, I don't want to give too much away before showing off the process and product.
Have you ever started a conversation or been approached because of a lanyard?
What would cause an engine to slow the car more effectively via engine braking? I know the basics of engine braking -how it works, the causes of it, how to do it more efficiently, etc- and could explain it to someone fairly well. However, I don't know all the complexities. So, what would cause a car to slow more,…
Hey, all! I'm back with an update on the current status of the livery tribute. Put a lot of work into last night. Ended up getting distracted and didn't get off until 4am, had to be up in the morning for work. Don't judge me. But I'm pretty sure I'm nearing the completion of the design, but I'm not entirely sure if…
Put some more work into the Martini design I started yesterday. Decided to rework much of it due to some of the points Jobjoris brought up in my last post, here. I'm getting into some of the more complex curves of the body lines, but it's proving difficult. It's still unfinished, as the rear was completely scrapped…
Hey, all! Recently I got to thinking about my dream car and build, which is a heavily modified Lotus Exige (more on that later). I have been trying to decide what kind of paint job I would have on the car, whether it's a solid color or a design. I'm also a big fan of the Martini livery, and was wondering what a…
Let me begin this post by stating that I work at a Discount Tire in Arlington, TX. I haven't been there long, about a month, but I've already seen some shit. Here's a story from today.
I have a "daily driven." sticker that I'm trying to decide whether it should go on my car (I drive a 04 SRT-4). Should I? Will it make me a douche, more so than I already am? Should I cut it in half and just put the "daily" on? What say you, oppo?
Have a Lotus. I'm gonna go party.
I'm turning 20!
In regards to "The Top 10 Burnout Vehicles". I love this image.
Hey, Oppo! Before I introduce myself I'd like to play a quick game. Rules are simple: guess the car model without looking back at my posts. Every 15 minutes it hasn't been guessed I'll add a hint, but I doubt it'll take very long.
