Now is the time to buy if you’re in the market for a GT3. The flippers are holding but not a lot of cars are moving. Turns out the GT3 is rather populate and Porsche made a lot of them. Save the manuals!
Yep, Mk6 3 door checking in! This is my favourite angle of my car.
Needs more City Chevrolet
I like McMike’s addition
Rob has said on some other podcasts and videos (The Smoking Tire I heard him on originally) that 100% of the manual cars they have rented before were crashed in some form. Not even like 9 / 10 but 100%.
Shameless self promotion of the photos I took going to the rally back in 2015.
I have two memories: once, when I was probably around 13, my dad suggested I try to pull our 16ft fiberglass boat out of the water in our Pontiac Transport (FWD!). I smoked those front tires because my throttle control was subpar.
The 2.5 really takes it for me though.
Neutral: My Golf is 8 years old and recently crossed 200k km, with about 140k of those mine (5 years). I finished paying it off a few months ago and the maintenance has stabilized, with a cost of about $0.10 CAD / km (thank you, HPDE events). I want a Golf R, but in Canada they are so pricey that I have to wait.…
Driver mod, best mod! This guy probably mobs on those tourist days
Is anyone interested in doing the math to try to find the equivalent fill rate of a gas pump? My research suggests a standard pump flows at 30 L/min but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.
I am part of an Ottawa area driving club called 1morelap. Its primary goal is to provide affordable track time for intermediate and advanced drivers at Calabogie Motorsports Park, one of the top tracks in Ontario. Since that only accounts for 10-12 days a year, we generally connect online, or go karts in the winter.…
Are you me?? I’m 30, look much younger, drive a slow-ass 2.5L Golf and am this close to getting into an R. Hopefully I can buy from the same dealership I have about 8 years of service history with and they don’t give me any grief.
Wow I forgot that the 407 is actually that pricey: Tanton Road in the East to the QEW in the West is all of $55 without a transponder.
My numbers came up, so to speak. It was shortly after I parked, and I suspect electrical or plumbing (VW never told me). All things considered it was handled well. I liked the car enough I bought a better trim and it’s been great.
In exchange for the favourite racetrack, I also like a smaller map of every track that specific car has driven.
The machine learning aspect of this is interesting. When building a learning model for a system, you provide as much training data as possible, but in the case of the cars, why wouldn’t a company have their own drivers drive around in different situations while the computer records everything? It seems backwards to…
I’m still of the thought that manuals won’t disappear completely, but are going to be relegated to specific segments of the market. 911? Sure! VW Golf/GTI/R? You bet! Luxury sport sedan? Mmmm, probably not.
I’m going with the Dodge Journey. I see new ones everywhere and yet nothing has been done to improve it.
