Fanatec has been successfully pivoting to the midgrade+ realm of sim hardware for a while now, introducing higher-end components at much more budget friendly prices. When I bought my GT2 wheel from them around 8 years ago, the higher end sim rig stuff was many thousands of dollars and required serious tinkering to get Read more

The other thing about these tests that I do not think people know is that they are done at GVWR.

The 2.4L was very underwhelming when I drove one as well, feels like you had to wind it out to go anywhere. I wonder if the 1.3L is any better with more low-end torque.

Having had to work with the Italians on products at work, they are very proud of what they make, especially when it’s relatively good. I would imagine this is tied to that mindset a bit.

Most OEMs that I know of will not run EVAP tests in colder environments, especially far below freezing, as there are CARB alleviations for this region as it poses a high risk for reliably diagnosing the system. There are also provisions to set EVAP readiness in theses conditions as to not fail a OBD port emissions Read more

Looking at the comments, its really staggering that a mojority of car people don’t know that the check engine light is only for emissions relavent diagnostics, and has very strict usage limits on when and how it can be turned on/off.

The check engine light is only for emissions relevent systems anyways, at least by regulation.

It’s not new to the C8, I know at least the C7 Z06 and ZR1 both had it as well.

Theres like 16 bolts that have to be removed and draining the coolant to go from driveable car to the picture above, do you really think that takes 3 hours? First time was maybe an hour for me, and after the second or third time I had it below 30 minutes.

There are about a dozen different configurations, but because of commonalities and how the certification process works, only about half of that needs to be emissions tested

Does this mean there is some kind of jackknife control with the auto braking?

Looking over the press schedule for the show, GM has nothing besides a Cadillac event 1/13/19 at 6pm before the show even starts

Chevy Monza, Cavalier, Cobalt, and Cruze, over the last 40 years. Lordstown has been a high capacity, large tolerance production facility, I don’t think that’s where they’d build EVs.

This hits so close to home. Its overwhelming to think about all vehicles I have, and that two or three are even roadworthy. I am working on consolidation, but this is my current list: Read more
