Oh, I have worked with Cisco Aironet hardware, so this modern newfangled gear doesn't faze me.

Yes and no. Yes, you can put in a splitter and hang a second cable modem off of it, but that will most likely require a second interwebs service account with your ISP. Instead, I’d run a solid-core plenum-rated Cat-5e or Cat-6a cable from the router to a small eight- or 16-port switch at the shop. If the run has Read more

This is exactly it.  Performance numbers are so incredible these days that they’re almost meaningless.  The real key to a ‘drivers car’ - which is what I’d consider a hot hatch to, first and foremost, be.  Is the experience.  Is it well balanced.  Is it communicative.  Is it engaging.  All subjective elements - and, Read more

If there’s no manual, it’s not a hot hatch. Look at all the “competition” listed here. Clutches down the line. A hot hatch is supposed to provide a certain experience. The car is probably fine and fast and whatever, but it’s not in the same category as the others.

It’s part of what’s called the Dakota Formation, but I wasn’t a geology major for long enough to remember how to read geologic maps. That was also back in 1985, so I’m sure I’ve forgotten just about everything I might have learned. But yes, the sudden high ground is cool, and affords a great view. We had stayed in Lind

Neat! We stopped by Coronado Heights on our drive from Austin to South Dakota back in 2018. Great view from up there, and I took way too many pictures of that castle thing.

I quite like them as well, I think the problem with the early cars was poor interior quality. I test drove a 2009 C63 back in early 2016 and the air vent basically came apart in my hand. Unfortunately, they lost the stick when they did the face-lift for the 2012 MY. That said, I’d still want one, but they’re pretty Read more

Rule #1: Never post a video when an article will suffice. Most people don’t have the time (or an appropriate setting) to watch a video, but all of us have 60 seconds to read a condensed list of tips. Read more

Nice vid. My SAAB has a somewhat similar lower control arm arrangement. I just replaced them all as the (permanent) ball joints were quite loose. I think it might have a similar problem as you describe moving fore and aft. It clunks a bit if you brake heavily then hit the gas. Oddly it’s exactly the same with the new Read more
