    So I'm in the pretty early stages but I am considering buying a new (used) car. I bought my current car (2011 Camaro 2SS/RS/manual) when I graduated law school and I was 25 at the time. I'm now 30 and I have a 2 year old. So I think its time for something a little more mature, classy, and practical but I don't want to give up having a relatively fast, relatively sporty car. My price range is around $36k. I do my own basic maintenance (oil, tranny/diff fluid, brake pads, spark plugs) and basic bolt on type work (air intake, headers) but on cars that are pretty easy to work on (Trucks, F-body's, my current car). Below are my requirements outside of price and some general thoughts on how I will use the car: 4 doors and a decent backseat (for car seat) and trunk (golf bags, stroller). It can't be slower than my current car (0-60 in around 4.6, low 13's 1/4). I will not modify the car so it must be at least that fast stock. It must be fun to drive. For example: A Charger Hellcat would not be appropriate because although it is fast, its not fun to drive. I want a car that feels a little special. USE: primarily a daily driver but I may occasionally take it to a track. That said, I'm not one of these guys who is obsessed with shaving 100ths of a second off my lap time. I just want to have fun and have a car that I can push without killing it or myself. If tracked, I would probably not take it past 7.5/10ths of its potential. It must be somewhat classy but not super flashy. I want a car that is nice to be in and I would be proud to walk up to and get in on a daily basis. Ideally it would be a car that a normal person wouldn't think twice about but someone like us (abnormal people) would look at and be like "nice." The car is for me to enjoy driving, not to attract attention. It must be reliable and reasonable to fix or have fixed when something does break. It must also be reasonable to maintain. I understand that most "nice" cars will be more expensive to maintain than my Camaro but it has to be within reason. RWD is preferred but I'd be willing to do AWD if the AWD is fun and tossable. Manual is preferred but I would do flappy paddle if it is a great box, a good deal, and not unreliable. Right now my two front runners are a 09-14 CTS-V and an E90 M3. My concern with the Caddy is that although its fast, I worry that its heavy and not that fun to drive. My concern with the M3 is reliability and maintenance. Any feedback or tips on my front runners is welcome as is advice on other options (supported with reasoning).

    Sorry about the slowdown guys, I'm aware of it and working on it. I'll be doing another major upgrade soon. Going to give this place more than enough horsepower to last. I'm liking the growth though so I'm happy about it.

    *iPhone not included ;) Links: Link to VBOX Sport info Link to purchase VBOX Sport on our site Group Buy Info: The group buy will go like this: The VBOX Sport MSRP is $429 The windshield suction mount MSRP is $40 (We highly recommend you get this and don't understand why they offer it without it!) :rolleyes2 We have released the code for 10% off and free USPS Priority shipping within the CONUS. Enter the code: VBOXGB at checkout for your discount. International Customers: Your orders will ship USPS Priority mail for $20 or USPS Priority Express for $40.00. You will be able to place your order on the website and choose your shipping method before placing the item in your cart. Rather than make people wait, once 5 people have paid, we will order the first 5 units and ship them out as soon as they are received (approximately 5 business days). For every 5 people that order after that, we will repeat the process. The group buy is valid until Midnight (PT) February 28th and we will place the final order for the remaining units at that time. After the group buy has expired, they will return to the suggested retail price and we will keep them in stock for immediate shipment. The group buy list will be kept updated so that everyone knows how many have ordered, paid, and when their order ships. Edit: We are keeping an accurate list of the participants and ship dates in the following post to make it easier to follow. Intro and Overview: Over the last few months there have been a lot of new developments on our platforms. Many of these developments have been debated and dynos have been presented only to spark more debate. As many are aware a short time ago we decided we were going to do another development vehicle (2011 E90 335i) for which we would be starting from scratch. We did a preliminary dyno but wanted to track our gains as we made the various modifications to see what affect they had on real world driving and performance. Was the car faster or not? That's what we really care about, right? So to track those gains we got in touch with Racelogic who makes the VBOX to see what options we had. As some may be aware they offer the VBOX Sport which is a completely wireless and fairly inexpensive solution that tracks your performance via multiple GPS satellites tracking your movements at a rate of 20hz. (The older, bulkier, and more expensive Vbox with the display is 10Hz) So far we've been pretty impressed with how easy it is to use and given all the hoopla lately we contacted VBOX to see if we could offer a group buy as there MAP pricing is pretty strict. They gave us permission to do so, so here we are. ;) Rather than go on about it, here are some of the features, specs, and pictures of the product and it's capabilities: 20Hz GPS Engine Bluetooth interface to iPhone or iPad Over 6hr battery life Internal rechargeable battery Internal or external GPS antenna Free Performance Test and Laptimer iPhone App available from the Apple App Store Robust, waterproof, lightweight enclosure USB Charging SD card logging Herbert Richter mounting system (optional) Free data analysis software Compatible with Harry's Lap Timer app, which is available for iOS and Android So in short, lets put an end to these dyno debates and here is the perfect way to do it! You can use the 60-130mph standard if you wish, but you can also set up your own testing intervals. In our case we wanted to remove the shift point as a variable, so we monitor our 40-90mph times. I'm sure many of you can also see why this standard might be a bit more practical. ;) Either way, that is for all of you to discuss and you can monitor multiple intervals in a single run be it speed, distance, braking...etc. In addition you can enter multiple vehicles in to your setup so you can keep track of each vehicles performance individually. Also, for those that do utilize the iOS interface, there is one criteria that I wish they'd change and supposedly they are going to address it. When doing a log on an iOS device, you have to press "Start" while at a stop and then your log won't start until you reach the specified speed for your first interval. However, once you have turned the unit on, it starts recording all your movements regardless if you're logging with an iOS device and when you return to the computer, you can download your data via the 4GB memory card that is included. Consequently an iOS device isn't necessary, but it sure is nice for immediate results. When running lap timers you have the option to use an iOS or Android device although we have not played with this feature yet. Stock images: A few of our images from our E90 testing: Stock 40-90 times on 91 octane Stock misc. times with 60-130 :lol Current best 40-90 time with intake, CP, and tune on 91 octane P.S. Thanks to Sticky for getting our IP issue fixed so we have better access again! :music-rockout:

    While no GT or new C63 has been yet delivered to a customer, RENNtech has been obviously busy with the pre-development of even Sage 3 (tune+exhaust+mod.turbos) for the M177/178 engine already! On the attached pic a 4.0L mod. turbocharger that is wearing a RENNtech badge on it with a "190" in the number, which could be for the GT.

    This sums up my feelings on the topic very well. The education system has convinced people that a degree means they are educated or successful. I've done more learning outside the classroom than I have ever done inside one: Kyle Smith writes... Howard Dean recently criticized Gov Scott Walker for never finishing college, stating that he was "unknowledgeable." What would your response be on college as a requirement for elected office? Hi Kyle Back in 1990, The QVC Cable Shopping Channel was conducting a national talent search. I had no qualifications to speak of, but I needed a job, and thought TV might be a fun way to pay the bills. So I showed up at The Marriott in downtown Baltimore with a few hundred other hopefuls, and waited for a chance to audition. When it was my turn, the elevator took me to the top floor, where a man no expression led me into a suite and asked me to take a seat behind a large desk. Across from the desk, there was a camera on a tripod. On the desk was a digital timer with an LED display. I took a seat as the man clipped a microphone on my shirt and explained the situation. “The purpose of this audition is to see if you can talk for eight minutes without stuttering, blathering, passing out, or throwing up. Any questions?” “What would you like me to talk about,” I asked. The man pulled a pencil from behind his ear and rolled it across the desk. “Talk to me about that pencil. Sell it. Make me want it. But be yourself. If you can do that for eight minutes, the job is yours. Ok?” I looked at the pencil. It was yellow. It had a point on one end, and an eraser on the other. On the side were the words, Dixon Ticonderoga Number 2 SOFT. “Ok,” I said. The man set the timer to 8:00, and walked behind the tripod. He pressed a button and a red light appeared on the camera. He pressed another button and the timer began to count backwards. “Action,” he said. I picked up the pencil and started talking. “Hi there. My name’s Mike Rowe, and I only have eight minutes to tell you why this is finest pencil on Planet Earth. So let’s get right to it.” I opened the desk drawer and found a piece of hotel stationary, right where I hoped it would be. I picked up the pencil and wrote the word, QUALITY in capital letters. I held the paper toward the camera. “As you can plainly see, The #2 Dixon Ticonderoga leaves a bold, unmistakable line, far superior to the thin and wispy wake left by the #3 , or the fat, sloppy skid mark of the unwieldy #1 . Best of all, the Ticonderoga is not filled with actual lead, but “madagascar graphite,” a far safer alternative for anyone who likes to chew on their writing implements.” To underscore the claim, I licked the point. I then discussed the many advantages of the Ticonderoga’s color. “A vibrant yellow, perfectly suited for an object that needs to stand out from the clutter of a desk drawer.” I commented on the comfort of it’s design. “Unlike those completely round pencils that press hard into the web of your hand, the Ticonderoga’s circumference is comprised of eight, gently planed surfaces, which dramatically reduce fatigue, and make writing for extended periods an absolute delight.” I pointed out the “enhanced eraser,” which was “guaranteed to still be there - even when the pencil was sharpened down to an unusable nub.” I opined about handmade craftsmanship and American made quality. I talked about the feel of real wood. “In a world overrun with plastic and high tech gadgets, isn’t it comforting to know that some things haven’t evolved into something shiny and gleaming and completely unrecognizable?’” After all that, there was still five minutes on the timer. So I shifted gears and considered the pencil’s impact on Western Civilization. I spoke of Picasso and Van Gogh, and their hundreds of priceless drawings - all done in pencil. I talked about Einstein and Hawking, and their many complicated theories and theorems - all done in pencil. “Pen and ink are fine for memorializing contracts,” I said, “but real progress relies on the ability to erase and start anew. Archimedes said he could move the world with a lever long enough, but when it came to proving it, he needed a pencil to make the point.” With three minutes remaining, I moved on to some personal recollections about the role of pencils in my own life. My first legible signature, my first book report, my first crossword puzzle, and of course, my first love letter. I may have even worked up a tear as I recalled the innocence of my youth, scribbled out on a piece of looseleaf with all the hope and passion a desperate 6th grader could muster...courtesy of a #2 pencil. With :30 seconds left on the timer, I looked fondly at the Dixon Ticonderoga, and sat silently for five seconds. Then I wrapped it up. “We call it a pencil, because all things need a name. But today, let’s call it what it really is. A time machine. A match maker. A magic wand. And let’s say it can all be yours...for just .99 cents.” The timer read 0:00. The man walked back to the desk. He took the pencil and wrote “YOU’RE HIRED” on the stationary, and few days later, I moved to West Chester, PA. And a few days after that, I was on live television, face to face with the never-ending parade of trinkets and chochkes that comprise QVC’s overnight inventory. I spent three months on the graveyard shift, five nights a week. Technically, this was my training period, which was curious, given the conspicuous absence of supervision, or anything that could be confused with actual instruction. Every few minutes a stagehand would bring me another mysterious “must have item,” which I’d blather about nonsensically until it was whisked away and replaced with something no less baffling. In this way, I slowly uncovered the mysteries of my job, and forged a tenuous relationship with an audience of chronic insomniacs and narcoleptic lonely-hearts. It was a crucible of confusion and ambiguity, and in hindsight, the best training I ever had. Which brings me to the point of your question, Kyle. I don’t agree with Howard Dean - not at all. Here’s what I didn’t understand 25 years ago. QVC had a serious recruiting problem. Qualified candidates were applying in droves, but failing miserably on the air. Polished salespeople with proven track records were awkward on TV. Professional actors with extensive credits couldn’t be themselves on camera. And seasoned hosts who understood live television had no experience hawking products. So eventually, QVC hit the reset button. They stopped looking for “qualified” people, and started looking for anyone who could talk about a pencil for eight minutes. QVC had confused qualifications with competency. Perhaps America has done something similar? Look at how we hire help - it’s no so different than how we elect leaders. We search for work ethic on resumes. We look for intelligence in test scores. We search for character in references. And of course, we look at a four-year diploma as though it might actually tell us something about common-sense and leadership. Obviously, we need a bit more from our elected officials than the instincts of a home shopping host, but the business of determining what those “qualifications” are is completely up to us. We get to decide what matters most. We get to decide if a college degree or military service is somehow determinative. We get to decide if Howard Dean is correct. Anyone familiar with my foundation knows my position. I think a trillion dollars of student loans and a massive skills gap are precisely what happens to a society that actively promotes one form of education as the best course for the most people. I think the stigmas and stereotypes that keep so many people from pursuing a truly useful skill, begin with the mistaken belief that a four-year degree is somehow superior to all other forms of learning. And I think that making elected office contingent on a college degree is maybe the worst idea I’ve ever heard. But of course, Howard Dean is not the real problem. He’s just one guy. And he’s absolutely right when he says that many others will judge Scott Walker for not finishing college. That's the real problem. However - when Howard Dean called the Governor “unknowledgeable,” he rolled out more than a stereotype. He rolled a pencil across the desk, and gave Scott Walker eight minutes to knock it out of the park. It’ll be fun to see if he does. Mike

    Ferrari is really shaking up their lineup and the character of their cars. We have experienced just over two decades from the time of the Ferrari F40 to today where mid-engine Ferrari's were all about high revs, finesse, and response. With the launch of the Ferrari 488 GTB that era is over. It is not all bad as the Ferrari F40 reminds us. Twin turbo mid-engine V8 Ferrari vehicles are nothing new and the F40 is arguably the greatest example. What's not to love? 478 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque from a twin turbocharged 2.9 liter V8. All that power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox in a package weighing only 3018 pounds. Nobody in Europe had a serious answer for the Ferrari F40 but there was another group of Italians who was not about to let Ferrari have all the glory. The Lamborghini Diablo offered looks just as exotic and very similar power and torque. Its naturally aspirated 5.7 liter V12 produces 485 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque. This is also routed to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission although the Diablo is much heavier at 3520 pounds. The Ferrari F40 is simply the leaner and meaner car. It is the true driver's car here and it shows on the roadcourse where it outlaps the Diablo by almost 5.5 seconds. It pulls more on the skidpad and accelerates faster. The Diablo does brake a bit better but over 5 seconds on a roadcourse is a lifetime. The F40 is on another performance level. They do not quite make them like this any more. The original Car and Driver article points out parts were falling off the Lamborghini and that the F40 is basically a race car for the street. Both companies are not quite as hardcore as they used to be and they certainly have much better build quality these days. Still, this was a time where these exotics were truly exotic in their performance, price, and pedigree. The complete enthusiast garage would feature both. Source

    BMW's mission has become outselling its rivals and using sales figures to flaunt superiority. Raw numbers do not show who is building the better car but BMW is mostly concerned with profit above all else now. As that is the goal the executives must be shocked that Audi and Mercedes are both outselling BMW in 2015. Obviously we are working with a small sample size but these figures could denote consumers are experiencing BMW fatigue. Audi is in the top spot right now with a 10% increase in January 2015 over the previous year selling 137,700 cars. Mercedes experienced a 14% jump in the same period with sales of 125,865. This just beats out BMW which experienced a 6.3% sales increase to 124,561 cars. So what is going here? Well, this could just be an abnormality or it could be that Audi has a chance to take the overall luxury sales crown that BMW has held since 2005. At this point nobody knows what will happen and China's figures alone can sway each of these brands. Perhaps BMW should focus more on making better cars like Audi and Mercedes are than just pumping out more models? Source

    The results here from MotorTrend in their Head 2 Head comparison test of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the 2015 Nissan GTR Nismo model are going to spark a lot of debate. One would expect the Z06 to easily mop up the GT-R in every performance area but what happens is the GTR actually is the one that comes out on top. It is of course important to note the the Z06 is the manual model and not the 8L90 automatic model that GM is apparently still struggling to get into people's hands. The GT-R of course has a dual clutch transmission that is not as susceptible to driver variables as the computer is going to shift consistently every single time. Still, with significantly less weight as well as more power and torque the Z06 should have no trouble here. So why does it? The Z06 is carrying roughly 350 pounds less weight at 3,527 pounds and offers perfect 50/50 weight balance. The GT-R carries 3881 pounds and offers a 55/45 front to rear split. The Z06 brakes in a shorter distance at 91 feet with its trick carbon ceramic rotors from 60 whereas the GTR takes 97 feet and features standard steel rotors. The skidpad figures are also way in the Z06's favor at 1.17g to 1.03g for the GTR. The figure eight test figure reinforces the grip and transition difference further with a 22.3 seconds @ 1.06g for the Z06 to 23.1 seconds @ 0.99g for the GT-R. So how in the world is the Z06 losing around the track? How is it losing in a straightline as well? The Z06 gets an unimpressive (by 650 horsepower standards) 11.4 @ 124.4 in the 1/4 mile. The GTR having the better elapsed time at 11.0 thanks to its all wheel drive and dual clutch transmission is not surprising but its better 126.6 trap speed is. What is up with the C7 Z06 straightline speed? Ok, you may argue the Z06 is not about the straightline and you would be correct. It is supposed to wreck everything that dares challenge it on the track and according to the figures on paper it should make easy work of the GTR around the 2.42 mile Willow Springs course. It does not though. Actually, it gets spanked. It is not a difference of a tenth here or there but the GTR is 1.4 seconds faster. That is a big difference and you would think it should be the other way around: The lighter car with more power and with more torque that is better balanced and offers better braking performance and greater lateral agility laps 1.4 seconds slower. What is going on? The GT-R's muscle clearly helps it on the last straightaway sprint ahead to the finish line but it is also cornering harder and at a higher mile per hour at several areas on the track. The all wheel drive also helps it get on the gas out of the tight stuff more quickly as the final turn shows. Making sense of this is difficult as for some reason the GTR is defying the laws of physics. It is said to be all business offering no emotion and that describes a Japanese robot quite well. The Z06 is much more fun to drive and more rewarding but why isn't it crushing the GTR? If you thought the fanboys were pissed off because the Z06 lost some straightline races expect a full on riot for a track loss and a significant one at that. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (Z07 Package) 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo POWERTRAIN/CHASSIS DRIVETRAIN LAYOUT Front-engine, RWD Front-engine, AWD ENGINE TYPE Supercharged 90-deg V-8, aluminum block/heads Twin-turbo 60-deg V-6, aluminum block/heads VALVETRAIN OHV, 2 valves/cyl DOHC, 4 valves/cyl DISPLACEMENT 376.0 cu in/6,162 cc 231.8 cu in/3,799 cc COMPRESSION RATIO 10.0:1 9.0:1 POWER (SAE NET) 650 hp @ 6,400 rpm* 600 hp @ 6,800 rpm TORQUE (SAE NET) 650 lb-ft @ 3,600 rpm* 481 lb-ft @ 3,200 rpm REDLINE 6,500 rpm 7,000 rpm WEIGHT TO POWER 5.4 lb/hp 6.5 lb/hp TRANSMISSION 7-speed manual 6-speed twin-clutch auto AXLE/FINAL-DRIVE RATIO 3.42:1/1.54:1 3.70:1/2.95:1 SUSPENSION, FRONT; REAR Control arms, transverse leaf spring, adj shocks, anti-roll bar; multilink, transverse leaf spring, adj shocks, anti-roll bar Control arms, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar; multilink, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar STEERING RATIO 12.0-16.4:1 15.0:1 TURNS LOCK-TO-LOCK 2.5 2.5 BRAKES, F;R 15.5-in vented, drilled carbon-ceramic disc; 15.3-in vented, drilled carbon- ceramic disc, ABS 15.4-in vented, drilled disc; 15.0-in vented, drilled disc, ABS WHEELS, F;R 10.0 x 19-in; 12.0 x 20-in, forged aluminum 10.0 x 20 in; 10.5 x 20 in, forged aluminum TIRES, F;R 285/30R19 94Y; 335/25R20 99Y Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 255/40R20 97Y; 285/35R20 100Y Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 DSST DIMENSIONS WHEELBASE 106.7 in 109.4 in TRACK, F/R 63.5/62.5 in 63.0/63.0 in LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT 177.9 x 77.4 x 48.6 in 184.3 x 74.6 x 54.2 in TURNING CIRCLE 37.7 ft 36.6 ft CURB WEIGHT 3,527 lb 3,881 lb WEIGHT DIST., F/R 50/50% 55/45% SEATING CAPACITY 2 4 HEADROOM, F/R 37.9/- in 38.1/33.5 in LEGROOM, F/R 43.0/- in 44.6/26.4 in SHOULDER ROOM, F/R 55.0/- in 54.3/50.0 in CARGO VOLUME 15.0 cu ft 8.8 cu ft TEST DATA ACCELERATION TO MPH 0-30 1.6 sec 1.1 sec 0-40 2.1 1.6 0-50 2.7 2.2 0-60 3.3 2.9 0-70 4.2 3.7 0-80 5.0 4.6 0-90 6.0 5.6 0-100 7.4 6.8 PASSING, 45-65 MPH 1.4 1.4 QUARTER MILE 11.4 sec @ 124.4 mph 11.0 sec @ 126.6 mph BRAKING, 60-0 MPH 91 ft 97 ft LATERAL ACCELERATION 1.17 g (avg) 1.03 g (avg) MT FIGURE EIGHT 22.3 sec @ 1.06 g (avg) 23.1 sec @ 0.99 g (avg) 2.42-MI ROAD COURSE LAP 87.1 sec 85.7 sec TOP-GEAR REVS @ 60 MPH 1,200 rpm 2,100 rpm CONSUMER INFO BASE PRICE $89,985 $151,585 PRICE AS TESTED $105,210 $151,880 STABILITY/TRACTION CONTROL Yes/yes Yes/yes AIRBAGS Dual front, front side/head Dual front, front side, front curtain BASIC WARRANTY 3 yrs/36,000 miles 3 yrs/36,000 miles POWERTRAIN WARRANTY 5 yrs/100,000 miles 5 yrs/60,000 miles ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE 5 yrs/100,000 miles 3 yrs/36,000 miles FUEL CAPACITY 18.5 gal 19.5 gal EPA CITY/HWY/COMB ECON 15/22/18 mpg 16/23/19 mpg ENERGY CONS., CITY/HWY 225/153 kW-hrs/100 miles 211/147 kW-hrs/100 miles CO2 EMISSIONS, COMB 1.11 lb/mile 1.05 lb/mile RECOMMENDED FUEL Unleaded premium Unleaded premium

    I'm considering going to Vegas for this. However, I don't think Manny will win. Floyd will just run around and doge and counter until the final bell. Manny hasn't exactly been on a hot streak. If this fight was three years ago, sure, Manny could overpower Floyd and he was quick enough to catch him. Now? I don't think so.

    Ok men, this is the big question. I'm in the market for a new grill. I have always used propane. Mostly out of convenience. My burgers, steaks, etc., all taste great especially when I used my infrared grill. I'm wondering if I should consider charcoal? It's less convenient though, dirtier, takes longer, etc. Thoughts?

    Now this is a drag race!

    Is anyone on Wheelwell.com? I just heard about it on my new addiction (The Smoking Tire Podcast) and I thought I would check it out. Its basically a social network for car enthusiasts with everything you would expect (pictures, miles, etc...). The best feature is that you can put in your exact modifications and tuning setups, time slips, and service records.
