Mustang 5.0 Engine BayThe combustion engine is a remarkable device, in some cases a living contradiction. It’s capable of producing staggering amounts of power. Yet, if certain tolerances are exceeded by the smallest of margins, what follows usually includes a loud bang, colorful language and a particularly interesting insurance claim. One of the keys to knowing how far to push your engine is the compression ratio. New to the term or could use a refresher? We have you covered here…. (more…)

Mustang Explosion - Fox SportsThe tricky thing about car advice is knowing whether or not it’s actually helpful. Many of us have friends who are well-versed in all things on four wheels and provide indispensable knowledge. Then there are those who aren’t exactly experts but still offer sound feedback when they can. Finally, we have ‘enthusiasts’ who know substantially less, yet are convinced of their expertise. You’ll find them at every car meet, forum, etc., offering unsolicited advise so bad it’s good. Here are a few of our favorite examples: (more…)

Focus RSIt’s finally happening. After a long, long wait, U.S. auto journalists are getting a crack at the America-bound Focus RS.

Now that the first test drives and initial reviews are coming in, does the hottest Focus ever deserve the prolific build up? Let’s find out… (more…)

IMG_1835For most of us, having dream cars dates back to an age we can barely remember. No matter from what country or region, they probably all had a few things in common: insane horsepower figures, six-figure price tags, low production runs and incredibly desirable shapes. As we age, the autos we fantasize about seem to move from million-dollar exotics to sports cars we could potentially afford. For some, that means the dream becomes reality. (more…)

jonibal-dodge-challenger-5The phrase “Stance Nation” always seems to elicit one of three reactions: never heard of it, love it or hate it. Most trends in the automotive world typically have some middle ground, but stance is incredibly not one of them. Even more surprising is how quickly stance has become a common practice and regular guest at nearly any major car show. Exactly how good or bad is this scrape-on-anything approach for car culture in general? Here’s our take… (more…)

Dodge DartEven for the most cynical, hipster-of-cardom types, it’s nigh impossible to dislike the Challenger Hellcat. Prefer your 700+ hp cars with four doors? No problem, Charger Hellcat has you covered. They’re straight-line ballistic missiles that can take corners surprisingly well. This week, we received amazing news: the Jeep Grand Cherokee will be getting the Hellcat treatment. To try and contain our excitement, we’ve put together a list of other FCA rides we (desperately) hope will eventually have a 707 hp edition. (more…)

Tokyo Auto Salon MX-5Every year, there is a massive automotive party known as the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Mercedes-Benz-S65_AMG_2014_1600x1200_wallpaper_01It’s still hard to believe the shocking news that was released this morning: At only 69 years of age, beloved actor Alan Rickman has passed away. He’s known for playing truly prolific characters, such as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. We’ll always remember him for his performance as the greatest bad guy of all time: Hans Gruber. As our way of remembering and paying tribute to him, we’ve put together a list of cars we think Mr. Gruber would find fitting. (more…)

Camaro Build HotRod.comFor those who love cars, building a project from the ground up is akin to a spiritual experience. As you plan, create, experiment, tune and develop your ride, it becomes far more than the sum of its parts. Unfortunately, starting from scratch tends to be a massive expense over time. One viable solution is to purchase an in-progress build and continue the work yourself. Since that has the potential to be a mine field of problems, we’ve put together a few guidelines for such a buy…. (more…)

Turbo Mustang 5.0 Car and DriverHaving a turbocharged performance car is an incredible thing. While nothing is wrong with natural aspiration, there’s something utterly addictive about letting off the throttle and hearing turbo flutter loud enough to wake the neighbors. Even turbo lag, often considered the enemy of blown cars, can be enjoyable in its own right. However, adjusting boost is an under-appreciated art form. To make life easier, we’ve put together a few tips…. (more…)
