Yes and no. They are thinking a lot more about aero like F1, but must do so knowing they don’t get DRS on straights. That’s why these cars are topping out like 15-20MPH lower than F1 cars after T11. They also have some interesting cornering; T19 had its limits removed to allow drivers to go off tarmac to avoid Read more

I love it. It’s great seeing a gap bridged between the higher GT4 cars and the MX-5 Cup cars and TC.

Thank you! And I didn’t need the live stream myself, but I also heard it was amazing for the drivers who wanted to just rest and catch it from inside their trailers. Read more

99% of those systems, often called via the brand name OPTICOM, don’t work JUST based on a flash frequency. It’s usually not infrared in most cases, but rather a visible white light. And it’s a changing frequency, meaning it’s not constant so that the system knows the vehicle is programmed to do this function safely Read more

I HIGHLY recommend that people don’t follow your rule about waiting for the oil light to come on before they do anything. Read more

They usually don’t have the time or effort to do so. They just edit the original and send it to all social media channels, their TV broadcast and any affiliates. Plus, even though they wouldn’t get fined from Twitter, it wouldn’t be in good journalistic taste compared to an online-only blog where it has no reputation Read more

If a broadcast station uses the same assets on TV as they do on the web, it’ll be regulated. They’re not going to bother editing two videos. So they censor one.

I don’t know, there is a police report about it, so I think it’s true. You fail to realize the amount of stupid people in the world.

Yup. One of my favorite things to do to visiting friends/family for the first time is hand them a map and ask them to pronounce town names.

I know people have tried sprays but they don’t really work. Frames/filters in front work better, but they really obscure your plate and that’s a nice ticket waiting if a cop sees you.

Doesn’t really work too well though. The camera needs the flash to properly expose and read the plate. So it won’t always capture a plate. It’s set up with a fast shutter speed to capture a fast moving car, so it needs a lot of light.
