Know what's bull shit? [rant]

My 10 mile commute took 40 minutes to drive home tonight, thanks so much to my city and their stop light fetish. Know what's also stupid? Being told to drive to Indy for a very time sensitive matter and as you're walking out the door being told the car is completely out of gas and that there is a nail in the tire.… » 7/08/14 6:20pm 7/08/14 6:20pm

What's Messed Up With Sports and Why America Can Spearhead a Change.

This is not a well researched article. I will probably be wrong at several points because this is all a strong generalization. But it's a a heart felt generalization, so bear with me. It'll probably not make the front page. But I have to empty my mind or I won't be able to wake up for my 8am practice. I wrote this on… » 7/07/14 11:37pm 7/07/14 11:37pm

West Michigan Oppos - AutoX tomorrow!

Just found out about an autocross at grand valley university out in Allendale, MI. Apparently it's a 20$ sign up and walk-ups are accepted. It is an SCCA sanctioned event too so anyone racing for points can clock up another event. I've been in a pissy mood since last week and spent most of today and yesterday figuring… » 7/05/14 10:56pm 7/05/14 10:56pm

Snakes and Sparklers: Bernie's F1

Bernie Ecclestone failed as a driver in F1, so he became a manager, he got money and became a team owner. Then, with his money, he bought the media rights to F1 and through numerous contracts and agreements, he became Formula One's de facto ruler. For a while, he was a champion for safety, but now he only represents… » 7/02/14 7:10pm 7/02/14 7:10pm

Brands Hatch Track Invader Gets Thumbs Up From Tabloid

So hey, remember that video the other day of three people in a VW who snuck onto the Brands Hatch circuit during a Fun Cup endurance race and got it red-flagged with 20 minutes to go? Well, awful UK tabloid The Sun has decided to give them extra publicity, because they're scumbags who celebrate other scumbags for the… » 6/18/14 6:38am 6/18/14 6:38am

Dear People Who Think That F1 Should Return To It's "Roots,"

SHUT THE FUCK UP! Grand prix racing has always been about innovation of the cars. All of the hybrid systems and electronics on the cars today are only there to make the cars faster, more efficient, and safer. If you think that F1 should abandon all of the modern systems, then you are loosing the plot. » 6/05/14 8:52am 6/05/14 8:52am

Never invite Initial D/MCM/Ken Block super fanboys at racing events.…

I like Initial D, Mighty Car Mods, Ken Block and all the likes of it, but there's a limit to how much you like it IMO. Let's take my friend as an example who is a super fanboy of these. I went to F1 with him last year. I just wanted to enjoy the race. He would talk non stop about the racing lines of the drivers , how… » 6/03/14 10:43am 6/03/14 10:43am

Knew the second it was posted it would happen

This condescension towards any new car that isn't a assist-free RWD manual is annoying as shit. It was in the FP not Oppo but the attitude is pretty prevalent. "Ugh the decline of supercars", "F40 should be in front by itself". I love older cars as much as the next person, hell my favorite car of all time is probably… » 6/01/14 6:25pm 6/01/14 6:25pm

Stealerships; I'm Pretty Angry Right Now /Rant

Went to go look at a Genesis and found myself in the deal room. The car had and internet price and a sticker price. I asked for something lower than the internet price out the door. The sales team added 3k to the sticker price, mostly for "Aftermarket" or something, and wouldn't budge even a little after I went higher… » 5/31/14 7:21pm 5/31/14 7:21pm
