Nah. We don’t complain about Porsche not fucking with what already looks good and performs better, but we will certainly complain about a 350z in a retro body kit with an ugly front fascia being presented as a new car that’s supposed to excite us for the future of Nissan’s offerings. Those two are not the same.

Up until a few years ago, I was pretty set on not liking Hamilton because he didn’t get across the best impression when he came into F1. I saw him as a bit of a bratty whiner that could drive the wheels off of the car but couldn’t handle things not quite going his way. Read more

I thought it was from lucha libre or Japan. I guess I just associate those with high-flying moves.

The wheels are named after famous wrestling moves. Goldberg's Jackhammer, DDP's Diamond Cutter, and...well, lots of people do a moonsault nowadays, it's a backflip body splash, generally from the top turnbuckle. I don't know who popularized it.

Are you not aware that Indycars run road courses too? Covid-shortened current season aside, they generally run more road courses than ovals. in 2019, 11 of 16 races had both left and right turns. That’s a large part of the series’ appeal: The different types of circuits test different skillsets, so different drivers Read more

Maybe some sort of consistent, thorough weekly list of all televised/streamed racing events on tap for the coming weekend. Not just Nascar and Indy and F1, but AFT, WSBK, MotoGP, NHRA, IMSA, MotoAmerica, et cetera. All in one weekly post so instead of having to check a bunch of different apps and maybe forget one, it Read more

To keep it from dissolving. He loves football (played at Miami and then in the CFL) and has the means (with his other investors) to save a promising-looking league from oblivion, at least for a while.

I wss just thinking it's gonna have to be a big fucking car. Wonder how they'll fit 12 seats in it.

I’ll agree that “turbo” is a stupid choice for an electric car, but they used it because it’s a recognized trim level, not really a model unto itself. That would be like Chevy offering a Z06 or ZR1 package on the Volt. Yeah, it’s associated with Corvette, but it’s a trim level and not a model so it’s not quite as Read more

The big difference here, to me, is that Porsche knew better than to call their SUV models 911.

Sounds like Mr. Foley had a rough go of it. I wonder if he ever managed to get his life back on the right track. If so, I imagine that others may benefit from first-hand accounts of his trials and tribulations. Troubled suburban teens, possibly.

My retired parents use their 2018 Wrangler Unlimited to pull a Sea Hunt Ultra 186 (18 1/2-foot center console with a Yamaha 115hp outboard motor) on a near-weekly basis for most of the year. They also have a Little Guy teadrop camper trailer they hauled to every SC state park over the course of a year. Neither of Read more
