My girlfriend noticed this truck this morning. She figured I would probably get the reference better than her. She was right and this sticker is perfect and the owner is my new hero.
Getting power from your car’s engine—which is fixed to the body, naturally!—to your wheels, which move up and down and, in some cases, side to side—requires an intricate system of shafts with special joints built in. In the latest episode of David Dissects, I’ll show you how they work.
Cruising through car videos on YouTube tonight and came across a whole bunch on pretty well done videos on the Salem Roadster Show that I just gone done showing at (my coverage here) and in the part 2 recap noticed i had my 15 seconds of fame as I was pulling the car out to the trailer, lol. Seriously though check out…
...but new MCM!
In a quest to witness and explain the magic that lies inside the air-squeezing contraption called a turbocharger, I headed to my local junkyard to grab those slimy snails and tear them apart. Here’s what I found in the first installment of our new video series, David Dissects.
I must do this swap to mine. It needs a V8. It does. I know it. I will do it. I don’t know when, but it will be mine. Oh yes.
Let the sweet sound of a wonderful Porsche H6 lull you to sleep.
Most times when you ask someone ‘in-the-know’ what their ideal Porsche 911 year and spec would be, you’ll get an answer somewhere between 1970s RS and 991 GT3. It seems that folks so often pine for the most hardcore and most ‘track-focused’ versions of this rear-engined German anomaly. But that’s not really what they…
The US gets more power, optional Recaros, optional 3.73:1 rear end, slimmer mirrors, fancy DRLs, sequential turn signals, and the GT350/R.
...at like, 20mph. But whatever. Cool turbo noises.
Reposting because it got lost in the drama earlier today and DAMMIT I WORKED HARD ON THIS
I always had a bit of a weird bucket list, and one item on it was to do a road trip in a garbage car I bought cheap. Soon a likely candidate emerged in the form of a 1993 Nissan Sentra SE-R. I grabbed some friends and began the first half of the trip in my 1997 Buick Riviera, bought the car, and drove it back home…
I made this video while learning to use DaVinci Resolve over the weekend.
Finally shot an automotive video last week, here is the result...
While it doesn’t get the spotlight or have the big names that MotoGP has, the FIM Superbike World Championship are certainly not the JV leagues. This weekends wet second race, albeit slow, was one of the best motorcycles races I’ve ever seen.
If you asked me to name five MotoGP riders who sent it proper on a supermoto, Dani Pedrosa likely wouldn’t have even come to my mind. Being wrong sometimes isn’t always the worst thing.
Topher Ingalls is a motocross racer turned real estate agent who just isn’t quite ready to let the moto bug go. And, when you can ride like this, who can blame him?
