What really bothers me are the morons who tailgate me when I'm stuck behind somebody else... Yes I know you want to go faster, so do I and trying to pressure me will get you nowhere. When nobody is in front of me, though, I find people generally don't tailgate me...probably because I drive at a reasonable speed rather… » 2/27/15 1:55pm Friday 1:55pm

Perhaps F1 is finally reaching critical mass? It's no wonder they're trying so hard to reach out to new markets, there simply isn't enough demand in so many of their current markets at their current price points. All the pomp and circumstance in the world isn't worth much if you can't get butts in seats. » 2/26/15 1:19pm Thursday 1:19pm

Both of my cars (Saab 9-3 2.0T and BWM 330xi (E46)) recommend long intervals (~15k miles), but I do it as often as I want to anyway - not quite every 3k but maybe every 5-7k. I've never had any formal analysis done on the oil, but I see no reason not to continue at this interval, even if it is overkill...it's not… » 2/25/15 5:01pm Wednesday 5:01pm

Very informative. Regarding vented rotors, I've always wondered if maybe any cooling they supplied was offset by a reduction in friction since there's obviously less surface area to contact the brake pad. I more or less assumed this was why F1 rotors aren't vented (plus they're carbon so they can handle the… » 2/25/15 3:55pm Wednesday 3:55pm

I'm sorry to say but McLaren just don't get it. We don't want more power, we don't want better aero, we don't want new camshafts/connecting rods/fuel pumps. We want something that is able to turn back the clock and make us feel as if we are children again

Anyway, I digress, back to McLaren and the problem at hand.…

Yeah, actually just had one this morning on my way to work... I think the combination of my screeching tires and me laying on the horn followed by my wild gesticulations at the other driver pretty effectively communicated my feelings of "WHY DID YOU PULL OUT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME YOU UTTER FUCKTARD!?" » 2/24/15 7:04pm Tuesday 7:04pm

Oddly enough I got 2 emails when I completed the survey, one says "Arranger" and the other says "Visualizer", so...I guess I'm like a split personality? I'm an INTP on the Myers-Briggs, so 'Arranger' surprised me a bit as it puts a lot of emphasis on emotional thinking; I guess I am pretty intuitive when it comes to… » 2/24/15 2:02pm Tuesday 2:02pm
