The modern crossover SUV is just the current thing in the line of Americans buying a bigger car than we really need. It was the wagon, then the minivan, now it's the crossover. People like them...

I heard about this happening over the weekend, and both my cars needed gas so I went ahead and filled them up expecting a bit of a price increase, and just wanted to beat it. Didn't think it would...

I think the CT-4 V will likely be above my price range, and I'd likely go used anyhow. Something below 30ish thousand, or a $4-500 lease if I was to go new. I like to go through cars every couple of...

I would put the new Supra performance up next to an SS rather than a V6. Unless you're talking about the 2.0T Supra, which I would match to the V6 or 2.0T Camaro.

Honestly the need to have a fast car kind of drives me nuts on here, and the internet as a whole. If I wanted the fastest thing per dollar, I'd have bought the best Corvette I could. There are many...

You can absolutely push it to the redline without doing damage. That's why it's there, as an "if you go further you could risk damaging things, but below here you're fine." That's where the power in...

I will say that setting my camber at -2.5 F -2.0 R I haven't seen dramatic extra tire wear over 8k miles or so on my street wheels/tires. Maybe 1 mm from the inside to the outside of the tire. We'll...

The only way you'll be up with how the market is would be if you don't overpay on the Camaro's replacement, or if you can just sell the Camaro and not replace it with anything. There's also the...

Someone had posted an interesting angle of the running from yesterday. Kinda cool to see how close I was to the cones, at least through the one slalom.

I don't think the camber wear will be super dramatic at -3.2. I stick with -2.5 for autox and street, and when I checked my street tires with a depth gauge, the camber wear was marginal. Camber...

I find that in the cold my Michelin a/s 3+ has more grip that the Rivals, until they get hot. The real difference is in the launch though. I never have issues with the Michelins, but on the Rivals,...

That's a real big CAM-C class. That 02 Mustang should be in CAM-T, but whatever.



Don't think I've ever been a part of an event that CAM ran first heat. Mostly because the noise and cold tires...

I think that should be fine. They will be slightly taller than the stock 275s but shouldn't be enough to cause an issue.

As far as width/offset, you'll be good. I run a 19x10.5 et 22 all around...

Seems like you mostly came away without damage. These things happen, you just hope it's not an expensive fix. Autox is relatively safe, but no devoid of risk.

The Veloster N would likely be my choice. When I looked a few weeks ago at the market they were mid-20s used, which doesn't seem bad. They'll only continue to drop. The Type R is tempting, but more...

Mag ride would be my only real concern, as I imagine it's expensive to replace. I haven't heard of problems with it, but 96k miles is enough miles for suspension parts to wear out. If the car doesn't...

Also, if you can fit a 305, you can also go with either a 295 or 315, if not both. If the tire is good enough, we'll deal with the minor compromises of moving up or down 10mm.

Conti seems to be marketing them towards endurance racing, so I'd imagine the rt660 will have the outright pace over a single lap, but the Conti may be better for a 20-30 minute lapping session.
