      I've got a 2011 S4 with manual transmission. It's my daily driver and I've had to drive in tons of traffic. With the amount of torque in the engine, I don't have to shift all the time. Even if I did,...

      I've done the CSS 2 day course at VIR as well as a one day CSS course. There definitely is a tangible difference in the instructor-to-student ratio between the two. On the 2-day course I felt that I...

      I'm going through the same thing - unlimited VZW data, but very spotty coverage at work. When I do get LTE, it's not very fast. I've gotta wonder if Verizon are throttling unlimited customers in an...
    5. Anyone tried smartauto24.com or oemcargps.com?

      I've just purchased a 2002 Passat GLS 4Motion wagon as a beater car. It does NOT have the monsson sound, but does have the premium double-DIN system.

      I want to rip that out and replace it with an...

      Depends on the race. If the race is overly technical, expect crashes. I was less worried about crashes in cat 5 races than I was in cat 4 races, because every new young cat 4 racer thinks the only...

      Why do you want to do that? They're not comfortable and it takes a while to get used to them. Most group rides won't let you use aero bars either.

      Only if you don't maintain them properly. Keep the o-ring lubed and it keeps water out.

      Not sure I agree with that. I've used my powertap for something like 10,000 miles in all kinds of weather, including thunderstorms. I've had no problems with it at all.

      I'll definitely second the thought about training with power not being for everyone. I'll put in a plug for a PowerTap simply because it's easily portable from bike to bike.

      Here's my cautionary...

      You forget that cyclists who race are cheap. I know a number of photographers who tried to sell their pics and failed miserably because racers are cheap.

      It's really not that bad - we did it in July 2011 and had a blast. It was cold and raining, but that didn't detract from the fun.

      Did you get the "new" ones that are tubeless ready and have the panaracer compound? If they really went that quickly, I'd contact Schwalbe and whine at them.

      Yeah, me too :). The bike setup is basically the equivalent of an $8500 rig (I paid about $4,000 total for everything, with the main cost savings being the frame and the wheels). From what I could...
