Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

I might be in the minority here, but I think the JL has more than enough power with the V6. Any more and it would be pretty easy to get into trouble with the suspension and high center of gravity. It's already scary when you're merging on a perpendicular road and have to punch it... adding in tire ...

OT 18: Anti-Social Distancing

Laws are required because the majority of Americans are not even REMOTELY CLOSE to as smart as those of us posting here. The big issue is we didn't actually shut down in round one. If we would have shut down (TRULY shut down) nationally in a robust and appropriate manner and implemented proper mask...

Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough

Back in June in Vegas I had a double pour of Michter's 20, then a single pour, and lastly a double of Glenfiddich 30. The Michter's was un-fucking-believable and I NEED to find a bottle for something reasonable, not $3k for a bottle. It was so tasty, but mellow for a 114+ proof bourbon. I wish I wou...

Home chat 1.0

Locked in all our options besides electrical and flooring today so the build can start.

Next Saturday we pick the flooring and custom electrical, so another trip to Vegas is happening.

I do wonder about first year fraud issues @ :waxer: you got burned by the mustang... this may be worse... as it is quite a complicated and ALL NEW vehicle.

California is shutting everything down again based on testing numbers..... which is flawed IMO. We're testing so many more people now that obviously the numbers are going to increase.... but no, we must all be afraid of the invisible boogeyman. Put that cloth over your face that you can easily brea...

I might reserve/order one though.... Getting kind of tired of the JL after 7 Arizona trips in 4 months.
:ohdang:

I’m kinda liking them too. 2-door tickles some jimmies for me.
From what I just saw, I would 100% go 2 door. It looks massive enough and pretty meaty.

I'd move to Toronto tomorrow but Canada doesn't want us. :thankstrump: Total new COVID cases in Ontario (the second largest cluster in the nation) is 116 people today. We were peaking at 1000 or something in April at its worst. FL in comparison is 16,000 new cases per day which is :ludacris: . Once...

Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

Looks interesting enough... the branding on the grille and the rear tailgate is a bit much for my tastes though. Looks a lot like a Range Rover meets JL features. The body mounted mirrors are a smart move.... but storing the doors in the bach is MEH to me... in that scenario you almost always have s...

However, there is insane amount of wealth in big cities in Canada and likewise shit is also expensive there. I'd love to retire and fuck off to Montana eventually. :eeyore: Montana and ...

My point is that upgrades, in tech, or driver make the gap close. Stock for stock my R would definitely be faster than my C5 was.

Doesn't seem that unreasonable to me, I think you have a C5 IIRC. These cars have a very similar weight and power output. The additional grip of the Haldex system doesn't hurt either.
