      Glad you enjoyed the video. A couple of things:

      1. While I did write the video, that was Travis driving it. Here's what I look like:

    2. Thanks! We're getting better with each video.

      Slightly more than slightly modified. Stripped inside and a roll cage and racing seats/harness. Less like putting a leash on a seagull and more like break dancing on a tilt-a-whirl. It was great for...

      It's not raw power, so if what you want is BLAM FAST ZOMG it'll be a disappointment. What's great about it is the feel. It's like your fingers are on the steering knuckles. You feel everything.
    5. The E30 M3 Is Exactly As Hyped As It Should Be

      I've driven a lot of cars, this one is unique:

      Yeah, we switched it around a few times in terms of blocking but we actually have other takes where they're with one another. I think we'll end up with something in between next time.

      What do you think?

    10. We drove an Acura race car on a track and didn't crash! - [Jalopnik TV]

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLsgqwTEPG-_26_avlC7n-Y42Y5SrnoPj_&v=EcNtE6B5Yvs

      Thoughts? Is a video where we don't crash something still interesting?

      The Quail is like nouveau riche Pebble, which is to say I like it better. If you go to Pebble you need to go even earlier when they start driving the cars on the lawn, it's the best part. But go to...

      No worries. I've been here longer than most of the people making jokes and Jalopnik gives people **** all the time so we'd be hypocrites to take too much umbrage. Here's a new video we put up, which...

      Thanks, sort of! We've tried to differentiate it from After/DRIVE with the format and the inclusion of the commenter/used car section. However, /DRIVE didn't invent the format (MotorTrend has a...

      This was our first episode so we learned a lot (especially about microphones). Glad you guys caught the VW Vortex shoutout.

      You'd find a lot of people who work here who have a similar complaint. There's a big push in our tech dept, I hear, to clean up a lot of the code so it'll load faster.

      It's hard to benchmark that on the auto side because there's less of lately, but R&T is definitely getting closer to it. Here's a good example from 0-60Mag that blends just good reporting on some...

      It depends on what the adventure is, but I'm generally for a wide interpretation of journalism. I'm a big fan of narrative journalism, which you see in the auto space sometimes (was popular in the...

      This is where I think, surprisingly, we agree (and then quickly disagree). There are people who do accurately report on the happenings of the auto industry and go to press drives and give first...
