      The way I see it, if you have an old race car, yeah, race the hell out of it. But if you had a pristine Ferrari 250 road car and gut the interior and flare the fenders to make it a race car, that's...

      The saddest part is that it failed in its mission - to make the warbirds no longer competitive and, therefore, get people to stop chopping them up for racers. Someone like Musk or Branson should put...

      Thanks for the replies. All I read was the press release and as you mentioned, it lumped all the Fiestas together. I had a feeling that it was the base models bringing the score down. Thanks for...

      Hey guys. I just moved back into a major city and I'm looking for a small car that's a lot of fun. From everything I've read, the FiST will fit the bill.

      One thing has me a little concerned,...

      A lot of race cars don't even have a speedo. Not exactly relevant.

      Digital speedometers are an abomination and work best when they're completely ignored.

      As for the tach, tooling around town, no it's not entirely necessary. Driving hard on a track or a back...

      I'm a big fan of real gauges. I don't know why, but it seems easier to track the movements of a real dial in your peripheral vision than a picture on a flat screen.

      But that said, one thing...

      This. If the Alpine roads are open, a couple of days in the Alps is more than a fair trade for a few minutes on the 'Ring. Pictures don't even come close to doing the scenery justice. And even if...

      A bomber as Air Force 1? An E-4 replacement, maybe, but flying a "big stick" weapon like a bomber into foreign countries in peacetime is bad optics at best. And like they say, the 737 doesn't have...

      I don't think that anyone is opposed to technological progress. ABS and ESC have saved a lot of lives and I don't think anyone wants to see them go away. However, there are technologies that are...

      Yeah, we definitely need Alex on this one.

      If you're not dealing with restricted licenses, I agree that the SV650 is pretty much the Miata of motorcycles. I've heard that the TUV is a bitch,...

      I see it as more of a certainty. If these kind of places don't clean up their act on their own, the track owners should stop renting to them. If that doesn't happen, the insurance companies and...

      What I'm saying is that, just maybe, there shouldn't be those kind of companies. Just because you're in Vegas and have a couple of hundred bucks burning a hole in your pocket doesn't mean you're...

      Having driven all of those minus the 240, I think the problem you're having might be the test drive environment. In normal street driving, they're all perfectly competent. Some even a little...

      Yeah. I think they were calling the the B-2C. Basically LO technology has come a long way since those things were built and there a many things like maintenance intensive RAM coatings that can be...

      Sure that radio program used one example, but again, the FAA has cited over-reliance on automation as a problem after reviewing numerous incidents, accidents, and over 9000 monitored flights. It's...

      What did I say that contradicted that? All of those technologies were firmly in place in 2005 from which point the curve has been essentially level.

      By the way, to get an idea of how...

      That's not really the same thing at all. Similar to a backup camera, maybe. But a piece of equipment that makes something that was previously difficult to do easier is much different than...

      Unfortunately, there have been no major changes in the safety landscape in the last 10 years to support that assertion. Sure there are brake and lane assist now, but only on a very small percentage...
