You’ve been eyeing some bypass shocks for your truck because you heard “they’re good,” but some colorful gif distracts you every time you try to read more. Help is here short-attention spanned friends; I found some neat quick videos that break down how bypass shocks will make you faster off-road.
Anyone can stick a beam axle and some springs on a car. But some automakers try things differently.
This is what a complete strut tower failure looks like. Or, you know, what it would look like if your suspension did its best Alien chest burster impression.
According to Associated Press reporter Jenna Fryer, Kurt Busch has been reinstated by NASCAR and will be eligible to participate in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. The fact that no criminal charges were pressed over the domestic assault allegations against Busch was a key factor in NASCAR's decision.
NBC Sports reports this morning that Kurt Busch has signed NASCAR's terms and conditions for the series' consideration of his reinstatement as a driver following his indefinite suspension.

One of benefits of spending all manner of time and money on older Japanese cars is the often entertaining intersection of Japanese and English.
