    1. I have no experience with that specific engine...

      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...
    2. The calculation of cylinder displacement involves...

      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...

      Very difficult situation.

      "Less back pressure" is not necessarily what you want to achieve.

      What you want to achieve, is to have low pressure right at the exhaust port at the end of the exhaust...

      That approach leads to something very close to the Ridgeline. It wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to have both a Ridgeline, and a slightly-smaller-than-Ridgeline, in the lineup at the same time....

      Update. I'm in the midst of the first big trip - did a little over 1200 km today with just a bit more to do tomorrow.

      Comfort on long trips is pretty good! Might not have fancy looking leather...

      I suspect that U-turn laws (i.e. whether they are permitted or not) vary significantly.

      In Ontario, you are allowed to do a U-turn anywhere unless a sign says you can't, provided that the U-turn...

      Those criticising the absolute nature of the Vienna-convention priority rules would do well to consider the screwed-up inconsistent hodgepodge of traffic laws in North America, not to mention the...

      Wrong. As atomicalex has been pointing out. by Vienna convention traffic rules, priority ("right of way") takes precedence. A driver must yield to any other vehicle that has priority. It doesn't...

      Interesting thread on another forum showing Kawasaki's patent documents from a few years ago. Right now, it's speculation about what type of bike this will be; my guess is that it is a ZX-14...
    10. The motor vehicle standards (FMVSS/CMVSS 108)...

      The motor vehicle standards (FMVSS/CMVSS 108) specify colours, brightness, and location of all of the required lights. The location requirements include minimum and maximum heights from ground level....

      The three rental Focuses (Foci?) that I've had over the last couple of years, all of which were Powershift-equipped, did nothing unusual. And yes, I got stuck in traffic, and I used the A/C. No...

      Really expensive if you buy new ... or potentially a lot less expensive if you buy used ... but the concept of a "toy hauler" might not be old enough to be able to get something cheap. Go to an RV...

      Topic is unclear whether they are talking about a trailer, or a complete self-powered RV motorhome, or just the tow vehicle.

      My motorcycle roadracing hobby means I know lots of people who do any...

      Not going to happen. VW is hedging their bets by making lots of choices available: conventional gasoline, full electric, hybrid, hybrid plug-in, and diesel. The diesel engine in the MQB cars is newly...

      No insurance to pay for, no license plate to pay for, and more importantly (for them), no license plate for cops or residents to see in order to identify the rider.

      Awesome video. I have the one they didn't test ... a Ram ProMaster a.k.a. Fiat Ducato. I'd love to see how a Ducato compared.

      I'm guessing, probably pretty comparable. There's not much body roll...

      Ohhh boy. I've been doing this for 20 years on and off.

      Small-displacement class is the way to go. The learning curve should be better that way, and tires will cost less (you will go through fewer...
