I want to know who is providing their used condoms for recycling. Who thinks that goes anywhere other than the trash can?

I want to know what gloves the Toyota mechanics use that allow them to grab the headers and turbo out of a race car that just came off the track. Those things have to be made of magic.

The house I grew up in was about 100 yards through a tree line to the Mass Pike. You actually end up noticing it more when it goes quiet. It took me a couple weeks after I moved to get used to sleeping without the noise. It’s kind of an odd thing how you just get used to noises like that.

The CVT used in the Corolla actually has a physical fixed ratio first gear. It's effectively a two speed automatic transmission were second gear is a CVT. It eliminates the weird slippy feeling that CVTs have on take off.

Well, my Corolla scores 8 points. It’s neutral for basically everything, scores points for the 6 speed and bright blue color, misses the points for curb weight by 60 lbs, then gets murdered for having 6 cup holders for 5 seats, fake exhaust tips, and piano black trim all over the interior.

I will always have a soft spot for this generation of Legacy Wagon. My first car was a 2001 Outback with the automatic and it was a true battle wagon. You could not get that thing stuck.

I don’t think minimum speed was ever a thing in NASCAR until their new damage rules and even now I don’t think you get kicked off the track for being slow unless you have had a wreck first to start the repair rules BS.

This doesn't seem like a viable option, straight line speed isn't a Mini's strong suit, it needs corners to keep up with more powerful cars.

Its a 5.3L LS4, and yes, it's still FWD. I can't imagine how bad it is to drive when you get on the power.

Yes Ferrari is held back by designing a car for a higher output engine but there's more to it than that. Haas and Alfa Romeo also designed their cars for the same engine Ferrari designed theirs for and they both managed to build cars that are faster than what they had last year, unlike Ferrari.

It’s more than just the engine for Ferrari. Every other car on the grid including the Ferrari powered Haas and Alfa Romeo are faster than the 2019 versions with the exception of the Ferrari. The Ferrari engine got pegged back but they also built a turd of a race car.
