      Listen to Turbowraith. "B" mode only knocks off 5 horsepower and still leaves you with a power to weight ratio similar to a Corvette Z06. Not exactly something you'd just hand over the keys to...

      That's a big ask right there.

      Hey, I said it was a crazy idea. Since I'm stuck outside a major metro area, I've never been to one of these events. But from the threads I read on here, it seems like a bit of a schizophrenic...

      So, here's a crazy idea that would keep it informal, and have a bit of a sense of humor/theatricality: First come, first serve until the lot fills up. After that, if you think you have something...

      Most brands are pretty consistent with their sizing, so you could try on textile jackets from a few brands and use that as a starting point for your online shopping. Also, I found the guys at...

      For what it's worth, I've been through several torrential downpours with that jacket and stayed bone dry above the waist while my Aerostitch Darien pants were leaking like a sieve. Of course it's...

      Name brand Goretex, maybe, but there are plenty of similar materials out there these days. My waterproof jacket is a Firstgear "Kenya" that I got for under $200 (and I, unfortunately, require the...

      I have a Joe Rocket hemp jacket that I wear when it gets warm out. Their "big air" ventilation system works really well. It's basically a big mesh panel that holds the jacket closed when you open...

      Again, show me the data. I'll concede that in your thought experiment, it's difficult to see how your reaction to John's reaction could trump your own reaction to little Timmy diving into the...

      OK, then let me bold some words:


      Again, if you got the "good science", post it up. I may be skeptical, but I'm not closed minded. You make it sound like there were no controls for any of these...

      This is very true. From he study that was shown in the video



      Cliff notes; if your passenger is reacting to the same stimuli you are, there's little effect. If you're talking to anyone who is...

      By the way, this is probably true, but only because of the incredibly small chance that anyone will be involved in a fatal accident to begin with (somewhere around 1 in 100 million miles traveled). ...

      Either you're being blinded by passion here, or you're being deliberately obtuse. If you have more than this one example of "good science", post it up. But as it stands, your article not only gives...

      It's called public outreach. Dr. Strayer who was prominently featured in the video is the author of several peer reviewed papers on the subject:

      Umm. Just two sentences after your quote is this:


      And in the very next paragraph:


      You might want to actually read your sources before trying to use them to taunt others.

      Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy. I didn't think this car was on anyone's radar back when it was new. But I thought maybe it was just because I grew up in Pittsburgh just after most of the...

      I blame the Brits. The only time I've ever been nearly mowed down was in England where I forgot that those guys like to drive on the wrong side of the road. If they would just drive on the right...

      But that doesn't mean much for the value. I'm 38 (perhaps that's considered old in your circles) and I would love to have a series 1 E-type if I could afford it. But it's not like the market for...

      A lot of people of a certain age (i.e. the ones who usually buy $80,000 sedans) still equate a big grille with a big motor, and therefore big power. It's a sort of stylistic shorthand to show that...

      You guys know that there are people who keep track of the "market" right?
