“Are you sure you’d like to start the engine? (Y/N)”
Hm. I need to go to the market. Let’s go for a ride!
When will the Dacia Carrera 4S with Clutchomatic be available?
I think this would be a good idea for things like off-roading or hill descending. It would be nice to have for engine breaking and locking the input and output together.
You are thinking too bigly. The space occupied by a single V8 is of a higher concentration than any area with cars wrapped around them. To increase the concentration further, one must go smaller. This is a youtube clip showing what claims to be the world’s smallest running V8.
The Scion xB is an amazingly useful transporter of people and things. My old company had one, and I had to drive it from SoCal to Vegas and back for work. While it wasn’t as fun to drive as my Integra or Golf, it wasn’t bad. It had a comfortable seating position and there was just SO MUCH SPACE. Seriously, you and…
The strippes !
For those of you bagging on Torch for his “Cars” articles, let me first say, Welcome to Jalopnik, you must be new.
Late night insanity is good.
Right there with you. This was the perfect punctuation mark to an emotionally laden day.
Seeing as how most of the comments are people complaining, thank you for this Torch. It was a bright spot in my otherwise shit day. Kudos.
I’m afraid Torch may be a finite resource. I wake up in sweats from my midday nap fearing we have reached peak Torch. I hope it never happens.
Someone turn this yellow and make it Torchinskys bug
The world needs more Torchinsky hours.
A 1000 dollars bet that the Chinese knockoff version of the sclass will look like Jason’s render next year.
Also, a George Foreman Grill is not shaped like George Foreman. When you want to grill something, you don’t grab George Foreman by the sternum, pull his rib cage apart, and shove some meat in. You don’t start grilling by pushing the xiphoid process.
I’m trying to think of what I’d do to my car with $5000 of Torchinsky dollars.
That second picture got me thinking, why is nobody making an air unit that adapts to your vehicle to transform your car into an aerial vehicle.
You could say rent these out at major cities so instead of taking the highway you transform your car into a plane and fly there.
Maybe there are too many problems with this…
Inefficient sure, but as long as you don’t get hung up on the provably optimal result you can come up with reasonable results using heuristics. UPS manages to do something similar solving the problem of which truck to deliver which package.
