      Direct injection engines (like a diesel) can also use the cam to drive fuel injection equipment, unit pumps and injectors. Putting the cam on top of the head also raises the valve cover a bit which...

      I love this thing and love the Raptor too but it's not really fair comparing the two. They have different purposes. I don't go wheelin' so a Raptor would be a lot of fun for driving quickly on...

      That looks like SLC which isn't very far from Green River and I know how proud they are of their melons in Green River. Maybe he's made his millions in melons? :D

      I was tracking right up until the grill guard and the wrap. Those two are over the top for me but half of racing is marketing (for) your sponsors to justify the money spent.

      Can't wait to hear...

      I think I missed your driving review of the latest GT3 RS. Please give me a link so I can educate myself.

      You seem sensitive about your FR-S. I'm happy for you that you got sticky tires.

      The last 911s that I drove were both air cooled and customer cars so I didn't drive them with any real passion. ...

      I don't work from Porsche and my coworker that drove the hot 911 turbo went into it not liking Porsches "because the engine is in the wrong place" and not liking automatic transmissions for various...

      That's what she said. :laugh:
      And it took 8 minutes, better than average.

      It wasn't just that the PDK was faster but with as fast as the rest of the car is a manual transmission would have been distracting. In a basic 911 C4 a man trans makes sense, in a bleeding edge,...

      I suspect the "close to 900hp" number is crank hp, not wheel hp so maybe not that far off your numbers. That still doesn't change the fact that even it's "only" 600hp it goes through gears too fast...

      Sentence structure? No, try word choice. Maybe this will make more sense to you:

      One of my coworkers got to drive a relatives 997.2 911 Turbo that's been worked over a bit. He says it's making close to 900hp and given his background with racing I believe him and also know that...

      In Europe that's not too far off from the legally required tachograph that's in every commercial truck. :(

      And as I've seen in the case of "former room mate v. person stopped on highway" this is possible. Again, not saying that there isn't some culpability due to the bumper modification, just don't be so...
    17. I don't see a good reason for the Cruze to be...

      I don't see a good reason for the Cruze to be stopped where it was. The Accord stopped in a logical place due to a blockage in front of it. The Jeep failed to recognize a stopped car in a place...

      The way that I read the article, he missed his turn and stopped in a place that didn't make any sense for turning, therefore there is no argument that the Jeep driver should have expected him to be...
    19. It's not clear who is at fault, it's only clear...

      It's not clear who is at fault, it's only clear that the jeep driver was cited. I expect that a good lawyer can get him out of any traffic violations. That said, the aftermarket bumper will likely...

      I'm not arguing that that isn't the prudent way to drive or that it isn't the Jeep drivers fault, only that it isn't clear who is at fault when one car is stopped on a highway without a good cause...
