​Sling TV Review: Holy Crap, We've Figured Out Internet Television

At some point, TV became complicated. It used to be this thing I would plop down in front of after school and mindlessly flip through. Then, in 2009, everything changed: analog signals were outlawed, and the new digital TV signals failed me in every way: my old television wasn't compatible, my house was too far from… » 1/26/15 8:41am Monday 8:41am

Toyota AE86 Twin Battle: Part I

The long wait is over. The AE86 battle is finally here, and it will be a fierce one. Both are 1/24, customisable, and deserve a top spot on any car collector's shelf. On the left, a panda white Trueno (Initial D limited edition) by Hotworks Racing, and on the right, a red Levin by Aoshima. This review will consist of… » 1/02/15 2:41pm 1/02/15 2:41pm

VIdeo: The Dodge Viper T/A is Analog Speed, Perfected.

The Dodge Viper T/A is an absolute animal: 640 HP, 600 lb/ft, 3,300 lbs, and 355-section rear tires with an old-fashioned 6-speed manual gearbox. And now that it has a new, lower base price, it's analog speed worth revisiting. Let's do a quick first-light Snake Run to find out. » 11/25/14 12:12pm 11/25/14 12:12pm

2014 Porsche 911 GT3 - Classic Car Club Review

The Porsche GT3 has long been regarded as a driver's car. While the results are always staggering, the recipe for GT3 pie is very simple – take a normal 911, ratchet up the cc's and revs, strip out the weight while exaggerating the width and wheelbase, give it cup-car stiff suspension, strap on a huge wing and use… » 10/09/14 1:21pm 10/09/14 1:21pm

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is The Battleship That Screams

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is a big, heavy car. In fact, at 4,420 lbs, the RS5 is 60 lbs heavier than my Honda Odyssey Minivan, which combined with this particular shade of "Nardo Gray," has led me to lovingly refer to the car as "The Battleship." Thing is with 450 hp and a redline half-past-eight, this battleship hauls… » 10/07/14 10:06am 10/07/14 10:06am

My Day on a Gas-Powered Drift Trike: Like Being a Kid Again, But Better

No grown-up vehicle can match the thrill you felt as a kid on your Big Wheel. Cars and motorcycles are fun, but at day's end they're serious machines. Recapturing that unbridled euphoria requires a dedicated device. And the SFD Industries Drift Trike is the three-wheeled, gas-powered tool for the job. » 10/02/14 3:16pm 10/02/14 3:16pm

How Does a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Handle a Hot Track Day?

I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks and 4,000 miles on Rally North America in one of the greatest vehicles to ever come out of the US of A: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. It's comfortable, fast, and full of practicality. But how does it handle a road course, at 4,500 feet of elevation, when it's 95… » 9/05/14 12:31pm 9/05/14 12:31pm

2011 Z4 sDrive30i M Sport: The Oppositelock Review

The N52-powered E89 with the M Sport package and manual transmission is an interesting combination of new and old in a rather often overlooked roadster: the second generation of BMW's sports car. It has electric steering, an electric parking brake, a ridiculous name, and drive-by-wire. It's also RWD, has defeatable… » 8/30/14 12:29pm 8/30/14 12:29pm
