      I think the point is that the inventory system should be a lot simpler for a dealership than it is for Pep Boys, and yet the same exact DENSO plugs I can buy for $7/ea at Pep Boys are usually double...

      Neither business model is inherently superior to the other. Look at restaurants and all kinds of small businesses. There are places that do 100% company owned stores, places that do 100%...

      Yeah, since going faster and pulling more G's is all there is to life. All auto racing should be abolished except for shifter karts and open wheel racers with full aero downforce packages.

      :laugh::laugh::laugh: You're so funny!!

      Do you really think the laws of supply and demand don't apply to cars? Pricing will continue to be set by marketplace demand, not manufacturers or...

      Yeah I was about to say you're well into the 95th percentile if you're 6'3" and over. Porsche made a rollover bar that fits 90% of the population, or thereabouts, as the bottom 5% are probably too...

      The first time I saw such drag racing was at what used to be known as Firebird Lake, at the south end of the Phoenix area. They're pretty crazy quick, but even more mind-boggling to me were the oval...

      OK, so right in the link it says Ion thrusters are not even very good for actual space travel. The article says it is used for positional maintenance and orientation of satellites, which is a lot...

      Maybe if it had a motor swap for something reliable. Even an old carbureted Honda Accord engine or something. I'd still expect other stuff to randomly fail on a regular basis though.

      Help me out here, nerds. If the whole point of a fusion reactor is to make electricity, how does that help space travel at all? Seriously, it's being developed by a military contractor to provide...

      Yeah sounds about right. I'm sure he was this guy asking to be moved up to the fastest run group too:

      Oh man, you're gonna be pissed when you find out that we have dozens of ships sailing in and out of major populated harbor cities with nuclear fission (about 1000x more dangerous than fusion)...

      Yeah this part is a little weird to me. Instead of 10 different performance classes from slow to fast (E350 to X999 or whatever) now there are 10 classes based on type, such as hypercars, supercars,...

      My comparison is:

      ST : Fiesta
      Performance Pack : Mustang

      Each is a higher level option or trim that is designed exclusively for the more sporting drivers. You make a good point that they can...

      That would explain the Mustang being soft if they tested it on the stock suspension, but they didn't. They tested it with the Performance Pack. We know Ford is perfectly happy to put rock-hard...

      You can modify any car to be whatever you want. Too much power? Just switch it back to stock. Hate the car completely? Sell it and buy something else. I can't imagine a scenario where I deleted...

      I had an NB Miata and loved it, but I could not do HPDE due to the lack of rollbar, and many organizations are real sticklers for the rules when it comes to rollbars. If you're tall and running the...

      I would say the same thing, but only if you can put up with that engine sound. IMHO, the Ecoboost sounded like a great option when I thought it was going to sound like an Evo or Golf R or something....

      Actually I think you just nailed part of the problem:

      Audi is a real brand, and exists world-wide.
      Acura is a fake brand, and is just existing Hondas with a different badge for the American...

      So as the father of a son who has been old enough to get a learners permit for a couple months now, I can lend my own perspective. My son was old enough to get his learner's permit on the day...
