The 1660 (including super and ti variants) would definitely make for an excellent cost-effective upgrade to add a few more years of life to your setup since the rest of those specs are still pretty good by 2020 standards. I just stuck one of these in my recently-completed racing sim setup and my initial Forza 7 Read more

Good choice in rubber, and those wheels look great. Best of luck eliminating the rub as well.

Dassai (39 or 50 Junmai Daiginjo) has been one of our regular go-tos, though it might not quite fit here, being a not-quite-budget ($40-60 / 720ml) option that is semi-sweet.

Foolish me for thinking in this day and age of being able to pull off a proper Tony Hawk remaster that EA was going to put some effort in to reviving one of the PS1 or PS2 Hot Pursuit titles. EA’s racing franchises have felt phoned-in for years, so I guess this is nothing new.

Thanks, though the credit for the stripe at least goes to the other guy, which I have to agree was a very nice addition. Read more

This year has had very little driving going on, so here’s a quick one from last fall:

More channel nuts and M6/M8 bolts than you can shake an allen wrench at.

On the question of power, I feel somewhat strongly that there are rapidly diminishing returns past the 250-300HP mark in most average-sized vehicles, with 200-250 being plenty of fun on a day-to-day basis (or less as the weight goes down). To me, high horsepower vehicles, while entertaining for a moment, start to blow Read more

+1 on the Nikka. Love the citrus notes and absurdly loooooong aftertaste. It’s one of the very few I’ll skip the lime on in a G&T or just drink on its own.

Looks like the Exocet is up one group over the original system now with a 207... and that’s even playing it somewhat conservatively (by not calling it a monocoque or convertible, or adopting the original kit design’s U.K. origins).

For sure points should still be awarded, maybe just slightly fewer. Might also need to consider an exclusion for recently new cars with digital dashes as well.

That too could work, perhaps with at least 7-7.5k being the minimum. I’m also wondering if it might also be in the spirit of this rating system to award points for anything with an abnormally low rev limit as well.

Wow, I completely forgot about this... Anyway, if I’m doing the math right here, it looks like the Exocet scores around 163 under the old system, using the donor for age and just averaging manufacturer location between U.S. and Japan to account for the mixed body+drivetrain origins. Read more

How about a sliding scale based on how high the NA motor revs?

Just flare the rear arches a bit and I’m 100% on board with this.
