I am pretty sure he is wrong on that one, at least for “...has more power....”.
The higher the rating, the more octane is in the mixture. That particular carbon chain has a great bit of potential energy, but is pretty stable. That is why we have to compress it and ignite it. What can be done with higher octane is this… Read more
I would 10/10 buy the Alexa Car and let her do her thing on Tuesdays from 2-5
Damn. I missed that the first time around.
Well spotted, good sir; take your star.
86 F-150, inline-6, low first ger, triangle vent windows, foot-actuated vents and high beams, stick.
The Stump Puller.
I have to question my truck knowledge that I scrolled waaaay down and did not see this mentioned. If it had been, I apologize.
If not, we all know that the inline-6 is not sexy, but is a think that will… Read more
It seems that no one knows how a tax credit works.
Pardon for the mansplaining, but here goes.
My company withholds money based on my salary and the numbers I put on that form when I was hired. They give that to the IRS.
If they accidentally take too much, I get that back. If they take too little, I pay the difference.
Wit… Read more
I mean, why bother? Doesn’t one of the new Rams have 1k ft-lb?
Maybe I can use my C63 AMG MAGIC BODY MOTION with P3 technology to tow the gates off of Hell?
Er, “good forest management” is actually letting them burn every now and again.
Also, not for SuspiciousTrain69, but...
“...and shows the monumental effort needed to ensure those that continue to live there are afforded some protection.”
Two questions come to mind:
1. Who pays for that protection?
2. Don’t live where fires… Read more
I was just mentioning this to someone on the interwebs today. They were hoping for a Pro-4 X trim on the Pathfinder. I think the NISMO treatment is more likely.
The question is, “What do you get with a NISMO Pathfinder?” Stickers and interior? Actual go-faster bits? Or, steel bumper and winch on Bilsteins with beefier… Read more
The 5th gear popout seemed to affect the classics more than the B14s.
Still, it was in the green that only Mother Nissan could love. Also, no one ever saw it coming. :)
I didn’t have the same experience. I was able to walk from the Marriot (the big one downtown that can hold large conferences) down to Dealey Plaze, over to Elm Street Tattoo, and down to Deep Ellum (for Pecan Lodge’s barbecue; shit, that’s good).
Was I in the wrong part of downtown?
‘96 200 SX SE-R. Fun out of the box. What should I do to it?
Fmax turbo @7psi? Sure. 211 whp and 199.8 wtq
Stronger clutch? Yep.
How strong? Too strong. So strong that it bends the bracket for the clutch cable and that you can change it on the side of the road in less than 12 minutes without burning the sh out of… Read more
Ask Sean Kane. See if we can get some context for what he was asked.
“While the U.S. recall system is flawed, in other countries we see systems that are virtually nonexistent,” says Sean Kane, president of Safety Research and Strategies Inc., a consultant and advocacy organization in Rehoboth, Mass.
I both want and do not want more context here, and for all of the wrong… Read more
I would guess it is “James O Donnel” /s
There is no chance that is a real person, though.
I wasn’t aware that many ads could fit on a page....
I have to ask this, because I don’t know exactly how to couch the google query:
When Toyota got burned last time, were there no case studies in any b-schools or trade rags to show how they were planning against the next one? Are people that lead public companies really that ignorant of what other public companies face?
I… Read more
Ouch. As a Nissan guy, I can appreciate a well-earned Toyota burn.
Well played, sir; well played, indeed.
*goes to get in his now 3-ton Pathfinder with 268/287*
Understood. I am in the SUV and off-roading part of my middle aged-ness.
However, with a long torso, I could only borrow my brother’s Del Sol if it was sunny, because I had to step in and slide down into the seat. There was no way I was getting in, even at 22, with that roof on.
Those days are behind me, also, but it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy being hyper-aware and efficient on a cloverleaf or exit ramp. I don’t pretend that I will ever pilot the streets of Monaco anymore, but this mental exercise is still enjoyable. Since we will all be dust by the heat-death of the universe, what… Read more
Then there were the bHP numbers at a certain RPM, so that insurance companies would not crap themselves over certain muscle cars in the 60's and early 70's.
“This makes 360 horsepower! ...at 2900 RPM”
“What was that bit at the end?”
“Hmm? Oh, nothing.”
