      How about some love for Indycar?

      After last week's tragedy, I was really glad to see the Indycar season end on a high note with Scott Dixon edging out Juan Pablo Montoya on a tie-breaker in the last race. Aside from the obvious,...

      React to what? That debris was coming down from a pretty high angle. There's a good chance he never saw it at all.

      Don't disagree on the insurance, though. Perhaps all the teams could pay...

      What reliability problems have you had? My S3 has been nothing but solid over 10 years and I don't know how many miles (got stolen a few years ago and they broke the odo). If I were to guess, I'd...

      Just curious, why is ABS and traction control high on your priority list when you live in an area not really known for getting a lot of rain? Personally, I would keep the Triple (I have an '05 I'm...

      It would be great if that could solve it. Unfortunately, hitting several pounds of debris at triple digit speeds can cause traumatic brain injury even if nothing punctures the shell of the helmet.

      Not sure why that article would talk about the "blade" concept and not have a photo or a link to it, but here's the pic:

    8. Sorry if I misinterpreted anyone's position, but...

      Sorry if I misinterpreted anyone's position, but the implication I got from the "F1 has fewer fatalities" comments was that there was something that F1 is doing right that Indycar won't. As you...

      I'm not actually disagreeing, just saying that even though the fatality rate is higher than F1, it's not like they just don't give a **** about the drivers. If there was a way to improve safety...

      That's not exactly a fair comparison, though. F1 has fewer cars on the grid and races almost exclusively on road courses specifically designed for high speed racing in cars of varying capability...

      One could easily say the same thing about someone who buys a car other than the one they really want because of a free hat, some window tint, or a $200 discount. Yes, I know that there are lots of...

      My advice is don't wait. The lowliest $600 craigslist special is more fun than 75% of the cars on the road. Take the MSF course and budget for at least $500 worth of decent gear and you can easily...

      I beg to differ on Count A. The only time you really notice is when you're parking. Once you're rolling, there's very little effort at all.

      I've owned a Boxster and I currently own an Elise (about the closest thing to a 4C out there). I would agree that the Porsche is a better car by every conceivable measure. However, the Lotus is way...

      Weirdest one that happened to me was when I broke down in a old Beetle and had to leave it overnight. Had a radio, spare change, and few tools in there. But the only thing they took was a tube of...

      Almost happened. Bell was close to selling the Army a nearly C-130 sized Quad Tilt Rotor.

      I'm really surprised that anyone does business with India. They don't even try to hide the fact that they're buying stuff to reverse engineer and jump start their own programs. Rumour has it that...
