@Adam Ismael, we have essentially the exact same story. I bought the FiST the day I went to check it out, the test drive was done by the salesperson. I had to have my dad drive it home then he taught me how to stick in a quiet part of town. It took a bit, but it’s been ages since I’ve stalled it. Love this machine.

Of course the only Ford is a FiST. Right on! I have one as well, and love it! Smiles for miles!

More evidence that, “they don’t make them like they used to” is a good thing.

I have a theory about the curious symbol. In 1988 there was the Italdesign Aztec,

The Volt absolutely babies its battery. Rick mentioned with his Leafs never letting it charge over 80% or deplete under 20%; the first gen Volt does exactly that. A “full charge” still has a lot of headroom, and “depleted” to start running on ICE is around 20%. The 2nd gen, in addition to its larger battery, decreases Read more

I leased an eGolf for several years, and it was so impressive that I bought a Bolt when the lease ran out. Because I get free charging at work, my biggest expense was literally running it through the car wash. (Ignoring the obvious expenses of the lease and insurance.)

The most predictable thing about F1 at the moment is that Alpine will remain a solid mid-field team and Alonso will complain about it. Read more

So, if anyone is interested, the way they can do the trick AWD system splits is combination common and clever. Its the exact same PTU/RDU single clutch configuration on demand awd system as pretty much anything Toyota these days, including a real rear diff instead of a twin clutch RDU. In most of these systems your

Personally, no car on sale anywhere in the world matters to me more at this moment than the GR Yaris. I’d love nothing more than to blow an irresponsible proportion of my savings on one, but Toyota won’t give us that privilege.

Its very interesting, eager to see how reliability is with this one. In the past, DD1/2s have had a lot of issues when they initially came out and the same can be said with CSL-level equipment.

But I’m all for cheaper equipment and more people joining up the hobby.

Might see the CSW finally die-off, its been a good Read more

I’ve been seriously contemplating getting a wheel and pedal setup and going off the deep end on sims, but the price point of entry was a big barrier when I already have a couple of grand in the PC that will push the pixels to begin with.

My favorite thing about Sega Rally was that even when you lost, it still felt like you won.

It makes me weirdly content that I wasn’t the only one for whom the “story” part of TDU2 was a huge distraction. It’s not even the theme they were going for, it’s how amateur their implementation was. Read more

Nothing in the genre tops TDU’s replication of Oahu. Not accurate, but totally committed to making you feel like you’re taking a road trip every time you do something. An hour to loop the entire map at 200mph? Buggy as fuck when it was new, but developers should be able to handle all the online gaming aspect nowadays, Read more
