people always ask me what's the shortest field I can get into. I always say I can land anywhere once.
Eh, this vehicle weighs 5600 lbs which works out to a little over 11 lb/hp which is similar to a Golf R. Quick, sure, but I wouldn’t say over powered..
*sigh* theres no real consensus on what levels of NOx are dangerous... there have been studies that show people exposed to higher concentrations of NOx have had shorter lifespans, however, along with NOx - there were lots of other environmental factors and emissions (such as high PM or generally shit air conditions…
The extra 100 hp of the Aviator is from the Hybrid system added onto the turbo V6 that sits in the base model. The extra power is literally there because it's a more fuel efficient powertrain. Also, you're not feeding 500 HP all the time, only when you're getting on it.
You dont have much experience in old school luxury do you.... theres a difference between being fun to drive and being really nice to drive.. no one is going to want to take this canyon carving, but it will still be a wonderfully comfortable and quiet ride with plenty on tap to effortlessly pass.
For a 7 passenger vehicle with 4WD that’s not a diesel and can tow 5,600 lbs as a unibody with IRS... yes, it is impressive. Also, 26 MPG is the rating for the non-hybrid base model rig, would expect better out of the hybrid.
Don’t you have an AOC or Elizabeth Warren rally to go to or “evil” corporations to protest?
Who sucked the jam out off your donut?
Then stop sucking on diesel tailpipes. The determination of harmful levels and concentration of NOx emissions by the WHO is fuzzy at best and based on a lot of assumptions and certainly not concrete. The fact remains that running a gas stove in your house exposes you to a greater concentration of NOx then if you sat…
Our highway mpg went up a tic after the fix, from about 45 to 49. The biggest difference I’ve noticed is that when the car is not fully warmed up it is a bit of a dog, almost as though it’s not allowing full boost or fueling until its been driven about 5 to 10 minutes.
This thing has nothing on the retroencabulator’s ability to use inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors while also synchronizing cardinal grammeters.
The manual corvette died as soon as they made the commitment to mid-engine and saw the cost for a bespoke manual transmission development as well as their decision very early on to maximize structural ridgidity at the expense of having a pass through tunnel.
The canopies of trees are surprisingly forgiving. There was a gentlemen a decade or so back who ditched in the trees and after several hours of waiting for rescue he decided to climb down. The climb down is when he broke his ankle. Emergency services showed up 15 minutes later..
Ditto. I would consider a Golf R competitor with a manual and some quirky personality.
This car is never going to be about setting ‘Ring times, it’s about fun, that’s what Mini’s have always been. Snoooooze.
The F-150 only has 3000+lbs of pay load when optioned correctly - meaning regular cab, 8 ft bed, 2WD, and heavy duty payload package. If you are going to haul the family comfortably, that means stepping up to a crew cab and the payload is significantly lower.
I split the difference and went with an extended cab 4WD, my…
Most, if not all, the people I know personally that drive loaded up 3/4T or 1T trucks use them, hands down. These people range from millwrights who use them to haul their campers 10s of thousands of miles each year to sleep in while they’re working 7/12's rather than shelling out for a hotel room and hot-cotting with…
Time is relative my friend. Why not go for something tried and true as a getaway car
2013 GT500. I expected to be scared. I expected it to be ferocious with 662 HP, but the gearing is so tall it is just civilized. At anything below going to jail speeds it just cruises and is borderline boring.
I bet even if you could get a piston engine to run on powder, it would coke up the rings and valves in far less than 5 minutes
That’s a lot of heat to pack right next to rubber coolant hoses and accessory belts, not to mention all the heat rejection from the radiator coming through there.
Look at the end of the day, superchargers aren’t all that less fuel efficient then a turbocharged engine - both are gonna suck fuel when your foot is in it.…
