      The goal is to have the electric car prices come down over time, so they don't need to be subsidized. I'm a little skeptical, but electric cars have advanced at a much faster pace over the last 10...

      You're in Raleigh, and he's already got a Civic for delivering pizza, why not a Wrangler?

      I almost want to see how a Prius does with some R-Comps or something with a stiff sidewall. Maybe some of the numbness is due to poor tire choice.

      Aw c'mon guys. Going too fast on a bicycle is one of the most amazing things in the world. I hit 55 mph on Orchard's Gap, coming off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was awesome. Faith in the brakes...

      It's funny that you say that, I had one as a loaner too...I didn't hypermile it at all to say the least. I also pushed it on some on ramps, and I was pleasantly surprised. It under steered pretty...

      I've got these on my BMW. Thoroughly "meh" tires, but they're freaking wearing like iron and I can't get rid of tires that aren't worn out. And my stupid AWD Bimmer won't do burnouts.

      They're not...

      Its a N/A inline 6 with hydraulic steering. What're you talking about?

      It didn't happen overnight though, it was a gradual slide, just like BMW is starting.

      For now. Cheapening their bread and butter worked pretty well for VW with the MK6 Jetta, right?

      For a couple more examples:

      -Cadillac in the 60's vs Cadillac in the '00s
      -Ponitac in the 60's...

      You're not wrong, however, the two factors are interrelated. If you have a steering setup that naturally has high effort/friction, you're going to require a lot of assist, and that assist muffles...

      Not often, but my bike is in the back of it 2-3 times per week. I can get any of my bikes in without taking the front tire off. I'd hate to have less length than I have now.

      Not that I'm...

      A lot of polymers use what is called a "plasticizer" to make the particular polymer more pliable. It lower the glass transition temperature, which is basically the temperature range at which a...

      Your rides in the wilderness

      I didn't get stuck, and I probably would have if not for the AWD. The spot where we had to park had these sandholes about 10x10 that were covered in tall grass, but the AWD just kinda tractored...

      Gah, that's a bummer. We had my E91 packed to the gills last week for vacation and while everything went in, I wouldn't want to give up any more space.

      So the girlfriend and I (and our dog) took a little road trip last weekend through Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee. Arkansas was pretty awesome and I think it might qualify as wilderness. (the...

      I've got a tough time paying for a really expensive bike, but I think new is worth it. I've cracked two frames now, and I got warranty replacements on both. Cannondale replaced my 8-year old CAAD8...
