Is there something wrong with the 225/45-16 Direzza ZII Star Spec? I autocross my Fiesta ST on those and they work great on track and on street. » 4/01/15 10:10am Today 10:10am

It’s not just drifting, a friend of mine who is in a similar situation autocrosses a late-model Shelby Mustang (stick shift of course) and does it well enough he’s taken home trophies at National-level events! » 3/31/15 12:49am Yesterday 12:49am

I think these results probably have little to do with Mitsubishi and more to do with Ford. Why spend $27k or more for a GTI when Ford is selling the Focus ST and it's little brother the Fiesta ST for much less after discounts? Sure the GTI is awesome to drive but it's also heavy and frankly VW/Audi doesn't have a… » 3/23/15 10:18am 3/23/15 10:18am

My roommate back in the ‘80s ran ProRally and had this happen mid-stage. They ran bailing wire through the firewall and his navigator operated the throttle while my roommate drove. Got them to the end of the stage where we could craft a more permanent solution. » 3/20/15 2:09am 3/20/15 2:09am

Where the hell is gasoline $2.30 a gallon? Here in Seattle we are lucky to see $3/gallon outside the city and $3.25 inside. But electricity is $0.09 a kWh so I guess that explains why there are so many Teslas, Volts and Leafs around... » 3/13/15 11:13am 3/13/15 11:13am

I bet the new Miata has standard a/c too while that was optional in 1994 (though the '94 cars all had the condenser already installed unlike the '90-93 and '96-'97 models). » 3/13/15 11:00am 3/13/15 11:00am
