      Depends on what you call "strictly legal". There's no law that expressly states that it's allowed, but also no law that says you can't. That goes for a whole lot of things, so California (rightly,...

      I'm not a Ducati expert, but I believe you should be able to pull the head without dropping the motor. If that's the case, labor should be minimal - a couple hours tops. If you've got to the...

      Despite what Silicon Valley would have you believe, information isn't everything. You could give me the plans for a Steinway, the sheet music to the complete works of Chopin, and a "How to Play the...

      Wow. I'm amazed that people can turn friggin' headlights into some kind of moral question. If you think about it for a second (instead of just saying "turn on your lights, idiot"), it's not hard to...

      The info is pretty widely available. But just physically constructing a modern jet engine is exceedingly difficult. You're operating pretty close to the limits of the materials and any impurity or...

      Watch out for skitchers and hop-ons. You're gonna get some hop-ons.

      Great car, though. In amazing shape, too.

      Well, I guess I didn't phrase that properly. I wasn't trying to directly compare the two. What I meant is that adding a fourth wheel to the Slingshot would make it a much better vehicle that would...

      There's nothing new about these vehicles. Morgan started making a 3 wheeler in 1911:

      As a fan of graphic design and the brother of a designer, I just wanted to say great job with the Union Jack shirt. Could do without the Top Gear logo, but that was probably part of the deal. I'm...

      Wow. That first car even seems to know how pathetic it is

      I gotta say, I don't quite get the idea of this thread. Don't 99.99% of live action movies or TV shows have at least one drivable version of their "hero car"? For something purely fictional that...

      I think the problem (as hinted at by a few previous posters) is that most auto companies have lost sight of what made sports cars take off to begin with - small, lightweight, and low to moderate...

      Good point about the welds. It's obviously something that was determined to be safety critical. Is it possible it was for some kind of lift device for a handicapped person? Looks way too beefy for...

      I sort of conflated the two conditions, but they're closely related. At any rate, the idea is that you're sharing the vertical load between two wings to reduce rotor loading. Whether the second is...

      Was it a 300? My best guess is that it was the beginning of a stretch job that was abandoned. I can't find better pictures easily, but they usually bolt/weld in a structure like this before cutting...

      If you're eventually looking to go off-roading with the offspring, how about something like a KLR? Good for the commute, decent on a trail.

      Used a GPS lately? Watched a live broadcast of an event more than 100 miles away? There's a lot more to the "spin offs" than just Tang and Velcro. If it wasn't for manned spaceflight, there would...

      While I agree that this thing is a collection of problems posing as a solution, I think you'd be surprised at how many flights can be completed much more quickly in a piston engined aircraft. ...
