I just spent 6 hours in a Mk6 GTI over the weekend and have been looking at a Mk7 S with Performance pack and manual trans as my next car. I am excited to see how you like yours. I love the engine in the GTI. It is amazing how quick the boost comes on and the car takes off, even without shifting down a gear… » 4/14/15 4:38pm 4/14/15 4:38pm

I like this show. It is blatantly obvious that it is scripted BS but I don't care. They do a good job of setting the stage, do goofy gearhead stuff on the side and have some bad cars. I too wish they would drop the street racing pretense and just call out folks from around the country to come and race the Okies at… » 2/27/15 6:47pm 2/27/15 6:47pm

I have driven a 12c and a couple 458s and ridden in a 650s. I am still no expert. I do say that if you are interested in performance and engineering, the McLaren is a better car. They are continually improving it and making it better. They have many models that are very similar but all based on the same chassis… » 2/25/15 9:12am 2/25/15 9:12am

It isn't that hard to get into reverse. You may need to have your linkage adjusted. I had the short shifter and it went in fine with one hand. I found it best to give the knob a good smack toward you. The real problem with the rear diffuser is it works really, really well and will suck gravel off the road and… » 1/26/15 6:21pm 1/26/15 6:21pm

The beauty of the 05-06 GT was that it came from the factory with 550hp but it was EASY to add an extra 100hp and and had a boatload of low end torque. It made it a unique driving experience compared to any of its European contemporaries. You could lug around in 4th gear and just give it the stick from 1000rpm and… » 1/12/15 1:38pm 1/12/15 1:38pm

So you pussed out DeMuro and didn't include any pics of those hideous headlights? Scared it would turn people away from your story because they are so awful? Not cute like a poorly drawn puppy or even just off-putting like a bottom 50%er. Those headlights are hideous and you know it. » 12/02/14 6:38pm 12/02/14 6:38pm
