Often, twist beam suspensions are swapped for a DeDion tube when adapted for AWD versions (Honda HR-V, old Chrysler minivans, etc.). Would be great if Mazda found a better solution, but if the cost cutting won on the volume selling FWD version, hard to expect much beyond what their competitors are already doing. Gain… Read more
FWIW, Metallica actively encouraged bootlegging of their live shows. It was the sharing of their studio work (specifically unfinished material) that provoked the Napster situation.
The 1st gen Eclipse and 3000GT were both based on the 6th gen Galant platform- even sharing identical wheelbases, despite the additional half ton of mass over a base Eclipse. The pedigree of the 3000GT is not a prestigious one.
that doesn’t look like the opposite of a Porsche configuration to my eyes. This “Audi” is on VAG’s MQB platform , which is transverse in layout. The Haldex is the other give away.
compression ratio of the 4U-GSE/FA20D is 12.5:1. Ironically, that is lower than (US) Mazda’s 13:1 SkyActive engines which run fine on 87 octane.
This rack is absolute junk. Unless your vehicle is worth less than $1k (as someone else mentioned, the feet damage the paint), your bike less than $100 (the straps to cinch the bikes are not elastic and will not keep them secure) , AND your driving less than 10 miles (the straps securing the rack to vehicle loosen… Read more

spelled SARIS...in case any one would care to google it. Also, most of their racks are USA manufactured (Wisconsin) and they have a lower tier brand as well-Graber

What was the last LeMans entrant ( from any marque) that used a Roots blower? Lowest adiabatic efficiency of any viable method of supercharging, and GM chose to utilize this on their “track” model.
Who would have suspected that utilizing the least efficient method of forced induction on a car intended to be a track weapon would pose issues with thermal management! As soon as the C7 Z06 was revealed, this was a foregone conclusion.
Vigor was sold as a Honda Vigor in Japan since 89, along with 1 or 2 other near identical models-all 5 cylinder longitudinal. Second and third gen Legends (3rd gen was Acura 3.5RL in the US) were also longitudinal engine.
I believe the C&D article referenced the 221mph speed at the redline of 7500 rpm. Without digging into it, the discrepency might be between redline limited (what C&D has always used as upper threshold for top speed) and what the actual rev limiter will allow, as that is usually a few hundred revs above redline . 300… Read more
2007= supercharged 205hp and is what’s described in that ad. Beware, there were “SS” badged 2006 and 2007 Cobalts with 2.4 NA engine :(
There is no EPA (or any government) verification of advertised power/torque. Aside from that, the range in which any engine makes appreciable power is far outside of the EPA testing window. VAG’s fix, however, will likely negatively affect drivability and power output at lower rpm and load levels. Assuming they are… Read more
CAGS has nothing to do with emissions. EPA fuel economy testing is biased against manual transmissions. The testing procedure calls for 1-2 upshift at 15mph. If you have a clue how to operate a stick and have even the slightest interest in fuel economy, you would not wait until 15mph to shift into second. Or you would… Read more
