It’s hot garbage alright, even for selling. When I had my NC listed earlier this year, the only transmission option FB had was a checkbox for automatic. Regardless of whether or not I checked said box, it would appear on the ad as an automatic. They eventually fixed it a few weeks after I reported it, but one wonders Read more

No doubt, LA is on another level. I just find this one remarkable for how quickly a few dozen extra cars and some subpar decision-making can drastically over-stress this little bit of road. It’s not like we don’t have the space to fix some of these problems either lol.

I have a working hypothesis that there’s something causing most drivers around here to regress into the worst parts of their teenage selves whenever they come into contact with a steering wheel. It’s just a whole lot of confusion, hesitation, and misguided aggression.

I’m a big fan of these as well. I usually have a slightly older one at work (currently a G500s) and run it until it starts to wear out, at which point I’ll buy a new one for home and cycle what I had there out to work.

Would absolutely recommend. Driving a ‘93 Birkin replica was a significant influence on my going on to buy an Exocet. They’re kinda weird for a minute, with (usually) older rear end designs and the center of rotation being somewhere around your shins, but once you get past those things and learn to trust it, they’re Read more

Hard to justify either one even in KC when local places like Burrito Bros and Panchos stomp both. The former is a similar format to Chipotle, trading some variety for MUCH better quality. The later is legitimately close to being SoCal good.

I had a similar thought as well, but the lack of damage and a more conveniently accessible parking lot just out of frame to the left were cause for doubt.

One of many things in this particular area.

As far as rabbit holes go, that’s a pretty good one to fall down. This has been one of my favorite finds so far if you haven’t run across it yet:

Agreed w/ Nick. Mid-ish teens is the general ballpark for completed, street legal, and fully (or at least close to fully) sorted naturally aspirated examples. Add or subtract a bit depending on chassis type, donor age/year, additions above and beyond what comes with the kit, any remaining issues to be resolved, etc.. Read more

Hence the madman moniker. My husband was working the course during those runs said that he was was going a bit sideways at the rev limiter through those two gates on the back stretch (0:16-0:18) more often than not.

I have a hard time walking out of those without purchasing one or more fried chicken skewers.

Hard to say, but something along those lines would likely work. That said, I’d probably want to shoot for controlled air in rather than out since lower pressure areas on the inside tend to exacerbate exhaust gas intrusion issues.

They’re not the most refined kit out there (with awful aerodynamics and a a few other minor design shortcomings) and require a little more care and attention than a normal vehicle, but it’s definitely a unique and inexpensive to get into a very fun, lightweight, and generally reliable performance vehicle.

FWIW, $9k was the starting point for my ‘07 Sport PRHT with 110k miles, up to date maintenance with records, no accident/damage/title problems, and full STR mods with all original parts included. I ultimately let it go for $7900 at the start of this year (somehow in spite of a misfire that *just* started happening Read more

For sure. Most everyone that we talked to in the class has been finding the 615K+ to be a very strange, bordering on confusing tire to work with even after two years. The more I drive on it, the more I’m inclined to agree. I caught some glimpses of driving “right” with them where their performance felt genuinely good, Read more

Damn, after listening to this and their NPR Tiny Desk Concert, I now thoroughly regret my disregard of their appearances in my youtube recommendations over the last few months.

Watched most of it so far and I’m finding it to be enjoyable. The diversity of drivers and cars is great, as is the generally positive attitude of everyone involved. Interpersonal drama, backstory fluff, and commentators/editors trying to artificially play things up are *just* within my (very low) tolerances for that Read more

I really do wish Suzuki would have been able to stick it out here, because they were actually starting to look really good once they got away from the rebadged Daewoo crap. I almost went for a brand new AWD, manual SX4 hatchback in 2012, but the limited seats-up cargo space, the brand’s imminent departure from the Read more
