      You still can't get away from "it depends". What's going to work best at a high speed road course (for argument's sake, I will use one near where I live - Mosport a.k.a. Canadian Tire Motorsports...

      That was far from being an "unfortunate victim of circumstances". She, and only she, could have prevented this from happening several times over.

      The problem started probably a minute earlier,...

      I wish drivers training actually placed non-zero emphasis on risk management, as opposed to just training people how to pass the official (easy) driving test.

      We have big problems in this area...

      I believe the organization which performed the test (Teknikens Vaarld) did not actually state that it failed, only that it behaved strangely. As others noted, there are degrees of failure and this...

      The level sensor is a simple switch built into the fuel sending unit. It is not adjustable.

      The Scion brand name doesn't exist in Europe, where the original poster is. It's also substantially bigger than a Yaris.

      I wouldn't touch ANYthing with a CVT. They have a general history of blowing up and only able to be fixed by being tossed out and replaced with a new one.

      OK, this is from someone who has a roadrace license (although for two wheels rather than four).

      As long as the originally-crashed vehicle remains in that potential impact spot, it is a yellow-flag...

      48 - 50 mpg US from a litre sport bike is quite good already.

      Sport bike engines are designed to be revved, not lugged down.

      Take the lazy route ... leave well enough alone.

      And how would that be the responsibility of Formula 1 or race control?



      Certainly it's a common occurrence. And race control took the correct action ... of going waving yellow at the flag stand...

      I do not believe this engine is in production yet - but I will say that the next generation of internal combustion engines will be blending aspects of traditional gasoline and diesel combustion...

      I am confused about what "yellow flag rule" some people are asking about enforcing.

      In motorcycle roadracing (which I am involved with), waving yellow means there is an incident on track or...

      This. But it's even worse; the C3 shared underpinnings with the C2, so that 1982 'Vette was really an almost-20-year-old design. The C2 Vette was awesome in its era, but by 1982, that chassis and...

      Do you want an appliance that gets you there and back as cheaply and fuss-free as possible, or do you actually enjoy driving?

      Most of the early models here that are still on the road, now have large rust holes where the rocker panels used to be.

      The SOHC engines drop valve seats (layman terms: engine go boom)...

      I have no experience with that specific engine but a fair bit on others, and I will say this. If any one of those valves fail, your engine then becomes a lump of scrap metal. You do not want that...

      The calculation of cylinder displacement involves pi, which means either the bore/stroke won't be "nice" numbers, or the displacement won't be a "nice" number. When making up the drawings and...
