Even worse, he didn’t even get a cool death...he was killed off screen.

Wow, talk about a trip down memory lane! I actually liked the sequel (The Wyvern’s Spur) much more...or at least I really liked it when I read it in middle school. However, I vaguely remember not liking the last book in the trilogy. Read more

Not a fan of the wheels (too large, not enough sidewall, and more expensive tires), and I’m neutral on the lowering and exhaust mods since I would have to experience it first hand. Read more

This is a really good point since I don’t think as many people would complain about the power in the 86 twins IF the powerband was completely linear. Read more

An AWD 86 would add at least 200 pounds and the sublime handling/steering feel would definitely be negatively affected. Read more

I switched my kids to front facing child seats around 2.5 years and my son to a booster when he hit 4.5. I’ve had sedans (Mazda 3, and two WRXs), and there is no way for the kid to fit in a rear facing seat after a certain size. Besides, I also like the fact that the kids were able to climb into their own seats around Read more

Kind of. The 91-92 models had a tendency to toe out when the rear suspension became unloaded when you lifted throttle. The 93+ models changed this so they were less prone to snap oversteer. Read more

I’m not an expert, but I’ve always heard that it was a...less than stellar rust proofing treatment used during the early 2000s to about 2009-2010. It seems that later cars have held up much better (or it could just be that they’re too new to show the advanced rust that will come in a few years).

Great write up, but just one little note: you mentioned jacking up the rear of the bike and running the engine in 1st gear...I would highly advise not doing this. Read more

I saw this mentioned in one of the comments, but I can’t seem to reply directly to it (thanks, Kinja!). Malcom Gladwell’s Revisionist History podcast actually tackled this issue. They tested a mid 90s Camry, and an early 00s Cobra: even at WOT, the brakes will stop the car. Read more
