Not only cheaper, but a bit more efficient too.
Racing definitely gives you exercise worth doing. It's difficult to race, even for 30 minutes, let alone the average 2 hours or so. Your mind and body have to endure the draing process of driving, especially the phenomenal G-force experienced behind the wheel. Those G's can seriouslly strain on your brain: it's like being punched in the face by Mike Tyson when he still boxed.
Yeah. I like the snow, I just don't being outside when it happens, especially if there is a blizzard, and I don't like being coped up in my house, basically stuck watching the Packers play football. I like the Pack, but I'm not a big football fan. Winter in Wisconsin: Basically what I just said.
*feels comfortably squished* :Q__
Thankies <3 *hugs*
Yeah, two-stroke is fast and I probobly would have lost control somewhere down the line. I normally say four-stroke works better for car engines than on other vehicles.
Racing is hard work, no matter how much people down racing driver because "all they do is sit in a seat, push some petals, and turn a wheel", which is a drastic understatement. I race virtually all the time, and (especially after you complete a race such as the Grand Valley 300km) it drains you each time, but (especially if you win) it feels like it was worth however much time you spent driving. The only exception is is you retire early.
Florida has been getting some weird weather lately. Mother Nature mustn't be happy with us. Like I stated, snow on the ground is normal in Wisconsin.
I Believe they're four-stroke engines borrowed from motorcycles. Winning for me is more of a bonus, I prioritise the drive, and rush of competitiveness that follows every second. You always learn something, and have something new to try behind the wheel. Winning sometimes adds to the feeling of fun and accomplishment when driving. Driving is something that will never tire you, so long as you have something to try or do for fun.
I'm, surprise, am STILL stuck indoors, because I have to wait for all the snow to melt before any opportunities open up. Though I have something to look forward to, and I always have NASCAR to watch every weekend, can't get tired of that. But all in all, spring is in the air, and the brutal winter is over.
Yes, "Gearhead" has also been used describe people like as well.
I've tried drifting in Gran Turismo 5: I was bad at it., but In real life, I went Karting (100 cc Class) a few times, and passed a non-rookie driver on the outside: I felt so proud of myself. XD
I've also attended a few 1-day events in the locale, but never won. I will one of these days.
Yeah, I want Top Gear Magazine also, but then again, I get both Super Street Magazine (a car magazine that primarily subjects popular things in tuner culture), and Automobile magazine (the title says it all) monthly.
I guess it did just "appear" by itself. Sort of a marvel as to why. :/
Torist"Yeah, knowing the internal mechanics, and electronics can put the words "auto enthusiast", or "motorist" on sombody.
I heard of them when watching a round of the D1 GP (a famous drift competition), and they mentioned some competitors using formulated drift tires. That was also the year that someone driving a 700+ HP Toyota Chaser actuall wore down the rear tires after only 4 runs.
The magazine was established before the show, though they weren't establish that far apart I don't think.
As for the title, not sure as to its lonelyness.
Yes, all that is much true. Hard compound tires usually aren't very grippy, but last longer, making them Ideal for endurance races, drifting, and normal driving. Soft compound tires are very grippy, but aren't as durable, making them useful for test runs, sprints, time attacks, qualifying runs, and any situation where you need/want to push your car to the limit. At least that's the science behind it generally.
In Japan, they have tires in certain tune shops actually called "Drift Tires", so they're formulated to slide around.
Top Gear is (in it many variants) a great motor show, and magazine (I don't own a single issue, I just know it exists).Best Motoring (an automobile magazine and motor show franchise in Japan) is a close second. The Touge Showdown sections of the show, which used to be released monthly, was especially good, and very quirky.
I get that. I'm the kind of person who thinks every part that goes into cars, trucks and other vehicles is vital not only to the the purpose an function, but the styling as well. The tire is just as important as the body, headlight and taillight designs, grill, even the interior. Back to the tires, yes, the right tire is vital, in some more so than others. The only exception being racing slicks. Because the design of the tire is so universal, it's hard to make. It better. The only choice you'd have when deciding what slicks you want to use is the compound ratio: softer intells more rubber, while harder intells more hard material.
Tanner is among one of the worlds best. He is one of those amazing modern drivers that are actually kinda rare to find. I tune in to the US version of Top Gear every now and then, but I'm still more inclined to watch the original UK Verson, with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.
Ah, Get it. Basically a case of worn tires on wet roads: very slippery. Well... well-used would be more suitable, as worn describes the point past not having tread (pretty much down to the cambers). I've seen wet racing tires use on open-wheel cars (mostly on Formula 1 cars), and the grooves, although few, are very wide, and kinda look like sports-grade tires you buy at tire shops and tune shops. They work though, so they are obviously more effective at doing the proper job.
Yeah there aren't very many, but then again, when they are in stock, no one buys them... sorta ironic. Another problem is that Pepboy's, that famous tire shop, has no stores anywhere in the entire state of Wisconsin, but have one in Alaska, Minnesota, and Maine. I am familiar with Tanner Foust. I used to see him drift a few times, and I've also seen him on Supercars Exposed, and Top Gear (US Version) where he is the host/one of the hosts. I also know he drives rallycross, but can't catch it on any channel.
