My 125cc shifter kart fit in the back of my X5 with the side pods and rear wheels removed... So yes a kart definitely can fit in the back of an SUV. And my friend just picked up a shifter with tons of gear, suit, helmet, tools, wheels, spares for $1600. But if you want to autocross a miata, have at it! » 7/21/14 7:33pm 7/21/14 7:33pm

Why the Nürburgring is so difficult to learn

The Nürburgring is different than other racetracks. It was built when safety and motorsport where opposites. There are jumps and a straight so long you have time to ask yourself "How fast am I really going?" There are 73 official corners on the Nordshliefe plus another 11 on the GP course, but that's not what makes… » 6/20/14 1:16pm 6/20/14 1:16pm

I saw one testing at the Nurburgring last month. I think this one had wider fenders at some point in its life because of the weird tape covering what I think were spot welds for the VLN fenders. Maybe a M2 Xdrive with wider fenders is coming? » 5/13/14 12:56pm 5/13/14 12:56pm

So it's simply a cash issue for you? That's too bad. The cash is the easiest part actually. Learning to build your own Racecar and weld your own roll cage, tow 3,000 mikes into Mexico and become the first amatuer to run a full wrc rally with no fia license or legal car, and to do on the longest rally of the wrc with… » 4/09/14 10:05am 4/09/14 10:05am

A lot of the launches were done that way. 5 down and 5 back, 5 down and 5 back. To show all of that footage for all the launches makes the video like 20 minutes. but yes, I would barely get to a sport and fire it off again. I was abusive. promise. » 3/11/14 3:29pm 3/11/14 3:29pm

I COULDNT AGREE MORE! I have three quotes to rent a real WRC car for next Monte Carlo. Real deal, WRC R4 class. Looking into slightly cheaper options like an R2 but Im planning on going next January! I cant stop thinking about it after driving the Col de Turini last spring! » 2/04/14 2:09pm 2/04/14 2:09pm

I went to the dealer in San Deigo that had this car on its lot. They said it was near impossible for them to sell and sat forever. We purchased a 4dr F30 320i for my wife that day and I never once asked to drive it after we bought it. why? no steering feel, slower than our 1999 toyota camry XLE with V6 (just barely,… » 2/03/14 4:28pm 2/03/14 4:28pm

Audi TT RS Pitstop - 25hrs of Thunderhill

I stopped by the 25hrs of Thunderhill last month to see Robb Holland race the Audi TT RS and catch up with friends running a wild E36. At 2am while chasing down the leaders, the Audi came in for a driver change. I wish I had a tripod or a camera I haven't dropped 10,000 times(replaced with a D800 last week) but this… » 1/16/14 9:26am 1/16/14 9:26am

Actually no they use mechanical center diffs. The handbrake has two master cylinders on it. One for the brakes and one to release the center diff. The handle of the handbrake was the center diff reservoir in the car I was in. Crazy cool simple tech. » 1/01/14 6:03pm 1/01/14 6:03pm

You might think you dislike the M3 but really just learned that you like street cars. The M3 was built for racing, for racetracks. Take it to a real track and you will own your SC all day long. Back when these cars were out they would eat 911s at the Nurburgring.

So it sounds like you bought it for the boy racer look… » 12/18/13 4:09pm 12/18/13 4:09pm
