    2012 F1 Season Talk

    I have to go with Alonso...his massive salary has purchased the favors of the universe. Everything goes their way. The last lap will be like Brazil 2008 except the track will open up to consume his opponents.

    2013 SRT Viper - First Drive

    I've been in a 2013, it's night and day how much nicer it is. It actually looks like it's worth $100K, really nice. Plus, 630 hp is lots for me. I drive a GTI :lol:

    London - Planning a Trip with the Dudes

    London is pretty kickass....for nerdy/sweet stuff to do during the day, I really liked touring the HMS Belfast. You can just roam around it self guided and it's pretty sweet: The Tower of London and British Museum are awesome too, though the British...

    Adam's Rotors?

    Searched and couldn't find much info... They look awesome, worth it as far as quality? OEM rotors are pretty cheap and I am looking to do pads/rotors/lines. Anybody with feedback would be appreciated. I am thinking of maybe the slotted rotors with black hubs but don't want to do it just for...

    2013 SRT Viper Revealed

    I like it a lot...they had to walk a fine line between making an F12 and making a Viper to be honest. If they came out with a Ferrari with a Viper logo, people would have ripped them a new one. I think it will be killer in person, especially since all of the details like the mask on the tail...

    Calling engineers (Fluids Question)

    I think you're over-thinking this question. The incoming air is not a jet blasting against the side of the fan - that is how you're thinking of it. A centrifugal fan is actually drawing air in radially...the air is being pulled into the fan and 'shot out' perpendicular to the axis of...

    Glass Products

    Hi All, Does anyone have any recommendations for glass products? By glass products I mean not so much for the inside like Windex but for exterior detailing/cleaning/water repelling? Thanks

    Get your car indoors, they are reporting 1.8" hail in Ann Arbor...I ran across north campus at U of M to get it back in the garage.

    Pull the trigger on Stage II without clutch upgrade?

    Hi All, I have been building slowly toward Stage II...this is the first car I have ever modded and have been doing it a step at a time, partly to not drop loads of cash at once and partly to do the work myself and enjoy the process. My car has a DP, O2 spacer, Carbonio intake, noise pipe...

    1996-1999 Toyota Tacoma

    Does anybody in this region have or know anyone with a 1996-1999 Toyota Tacoma? We need to put a person into one of these and take some measurements for an accident reconstruction and would be willing to pay a decent amount for the person to drive to our facility in Farmington Hills, MI. We...

    Future of the GTI

    Thought I'd throw out where I think the GTI will be in 2025 with the new CAFE standards and assuming Europe clamps down on CO2 more...I know the fleet average is 54.4 mpg but the CAFE system is pretty goofy and there's a lot of credits for hybrids. So realistically, most cars will probably be...

    Intercooler upgrade effectiveness?

    Hi Guys, I searched but didn't find anything on the topic of intercooler upgrades as far as the effectiveness...We are at 101 F here in Michigan today and it has been high 90's the whole week. The car definitely feels like a pig, I actually thought something was wrong when I went to pass...

    Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 Review

    Hi All, Thought I'd share my impression of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. I am coming off of a set of Dunlop SP Sport 01 summer tires that were pretty much slicks. Here are the tires: From Tire Rack...
