Much of the Midwest and Great Plains freeways (that I remember) are 75. Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Nebraska, etc. Utah, I believe, is 80, as is much of Texas, which also has an 85 mph toll road.

No, what it shows is that cars going slower than traffic cause more accidents than those going faster. Even the cars going 10 mph over have fewer accidents than the cars going 10 mph under. That granny in the Buick that you swerved to avoid because they were going 15 under? The primary cause of "speed" accidents.

That is an equal length, parallel arm suspension, which is HORRIBLE for handling. There is no camber curve, so for every degree of body roll there is 1 degree of positive camber. Any good IRS will have negative camber gain in roll, which also means camber gain in bump, so the uneven road surface comparison is moot Read more

Explain. I want a fully detailed explanation of why I'm wrong. Until then, I will give a fully detailed explanation of why I'm right. Good handling IRS systems change camber in bump and droop, so as it hits bumps and undulations, camber changes, reducing grip, especially over crests. Camber goes positive, grip goes Read more

Imagine: Inboard, planetary-gear driven, clutch activated disc brakes! 'Scuse me while I whip up a prototype...

The FR500 concept was one of my favorites. The extended nose really brought the proportions together, it brought back the idea of using an SLA suspension, and those WHEELS! MMFFFF!

As long as camber is under 1.5 degrees, there is room for at least 2" of wheel travel total (1" up, 1" down, with steering at full lock), and ground clearance is at least 4", I'm ok with it. With specs like that, you can actually use your car on the street while still getting performance and looks.

The ramjet is outside of the turbojet. The air flows around the turbojet, pressurized by the sheer airflow from high Mach speeds, then fuel is dumped into the afterburner, giving the effect of a ramjet.

Glad to see another classic Mustang modder here! I'm gonna be reading your build thread as I get the time. Much of my recent mods have been detailed here in Oppo under the tag Project GR350.

Not to mention that the comments are closed, and most are by her. I'm positive that she deleted all comments that were critical of her position and actually made sense.

Stretch the nose 4-6 inches between the wheels and firewall, and I would be tempted to not drive anything else.

Where I am, I find disused gravel pits and logged clearings. Places like that are pretty common in Washington state, but elsewhere, you'd end up on someone else's property who probably would mind you being there.

Having told someone that I liked having a gun to protect myself, my family, and my friends, I was told I was "fucking insane." I know what I need to do to protect myself and that which I care about, and I won't be swayed by those that are simply paranoid. Good on you for sticking by what you know to be right. Read more

Probably because they're crazy, sorta like us. I mean, 2000 hp cars built for the sole purpose of frying tires? That sounds pretty 'Murican to me.

One of the main reasons why I like my M&P so much is the ludicrous ammo capacity. 17 in the mag and one in the chamber, so I could potentially fend off 2-4 attackers. It's also dead reliable and easy to shoot. Hard to go wrong with a revolver in .357 Magnum, though.

This is what I keep in the gunsafe next to my bed, and occasionally carry. Smith and Wesson M&P9. I'd like to keep my AR bedside as well, but at the same time, I don't like not having it locked up, especially with how deep I sleep.
