      This. I remember when I first took my bike to the track, I was blown away by how fast a sportbike can stop. The sheer deceleration is unlike anything I've ever felt before. Those braking skills...

      I've been really happy with my E90 since I got it over 5 years ago. It does just about everything right (well except offroading), the only problem I've got with it is that its starting to show wear...

      I f'ing love that garage.

      How does this work? How much more expensive is an agreed value policy? I think it would be a good idea for anyone with a well-maintained older car.

      Weird. Mine only tramlined when the stock Bridgestone RE050 runflats started to wear out. New (non-runflat) tires and an alignment fixed everything. Ah well, sorry for your loss, enjoy the Civic.

      I'm curious, why sell the Bimmer? If I had to do a ton of highway miles, that'd probably be the car that I'd want to do it in. Comfortable, good fuel economy with the 1.8d, decent handling, and...

      When the engine is not at WOT, the limiter to getting enough air to the engine is not whether there's boost or not, the limiter is the throttle blade. No point in pressurizing the intake tract when...

      True, but those are very different than the ones on most production cars. Most cars with an "e-lsd" just use a brake on the slipping wheel to allow the other wheel turn. The McLaren system is...

      Here's a thread from a Cummins forum with a vacuum assisted clutch:

      That's basically what the Porsche has.
    12. Does this exist? Adjustable clutch (hydrolic assist or?)

      Yea yea, I was merely pointing out that the technology is there. A quick google shows that theres something aftermarket for diesel trucks, maybe the op could look into that.

      I'm pretty sure the 991 generation Porsche has a hydraulically assisted clutch.

      But I don't understand, how is it not an intake restriction when it isn't running?

      Here's my new baby, all put together. By the ol' bathroom scale method, she's under 17 lbs with the powertap rear wheel. I haven't weighed it yet with the carbon race wheels.

      The crank is a boat anchor, but over all it isn't too bad. I'd ride it till the BB or the rings wear out, then replace it.

      Otherwise, the bike is solid, and Cannondale is a pretty awesome...

      Haha, I guess I sound lawyer-esque, but in the world of bicycles, there's a ton of people that just won't buy carbon wheels because they "don't trust dem new-fangled thangs". As a result, there's a...

      I've read numerous reviews about the newer generation R1s getting awful MPGs, I think its the thermostat setting and maybe the ECU tune. They tend to run really cold to make up for an undersized...
