    Rate TGA Season 1 vs your pre-show expectations.

    We have a poll for everything else, and i think this would be a good indication of our feelings on the show. This is not a thread to tell me how much you hate Rutlege Wood, or why the show isnt as good as top gear UK. Simply rate season 1 against what you expected before the show. Were you...

    There seriously need to be some women driving in f1... Up and comers?

    I was just sitting here at my desk reading Bruno Sennas wikipedia article, and saw that his manager is his sister (Bianca Senna). I wondered why she may have been relegated to mere administrative duties while her brother gets to race in f1 this year. In a whiskey-fueled sudden rage (This was...

    Power steering and A/C removal? Any real performance gains?

    Thread title says it all, will removal of the power steering and air conditioning systems do anything besides free up under-hood space? I assume with a properly working A/C clutch the gains would be minimal, but what the hell, right? Side note: Relocating alternator to the bottom of the engine...

    Something that women rarely understand about men, or at least Kevin Smith and I.

    I was listening to SModcast the other day and kevin smith was talking about something that really resonated with me, that women seem to be baffled by. As we all know women almost always desire neat and clean men, dont smell bad, brush your teeth, get a haircut, wear matching colors, facial hair...

    Hey!! Great british public!!

    Damn it, watch fifth gear! How can a quality review show like this be falling on its ass, in the last 2 seasons they have outshone topgear in my personal opinion, watch their commercials, buy their products. We should do something to prevent their cancellation! We need to rally the fanbase and...

    Honest question: Overhead cams

    This is not a troll, this is an honest question, What is the point of overhead cams, as opposed to a cam-in-block design. I honestly can not see, or imagine (after serious thought), what they add to a car. Other than being "More modern". They sure as hell make simple maintenance more difficult...

    Im sorry, f1 has lost something... (tl;dr: Its baseless confidence)

    I dont mean to create a thread for a rant, but i just needed to say something after reading "Force india targets fifth place" on GPupdate... Does anyone else see something wrong with this "I don't know who will win/ Of course McFerrari will win/too early to tell" attitude from everyone in f1...
