After looking around in Google augmented reality (neat to no end that we can now revisit the location of an accident to this degree?), there actually is a 30 mph curve sign up by the T-intersection,...

I knew how to drive stick since first being licensed to drive. It's not a big deal. It was no issue at all to depart from it. If a car has the chops, you'll find ways to do exciting things in...

The popular figure touted as unemployment rate is otherwise known as u3...meaning a 3 month window. Once you fall out of that window, you become a statistic that "no longer counts". That's why the...

Any "heads-up" you give the computer will be effectively faster than trying to get it to do something quickly just merely with throttle actuation, imo...even if it means manually pre-staging in 3rd,...

One little enhancement that could substantially improve the utility of the EVIC, is if it let you enter in a parameter for tire OD roll-out down to say, a 16th of an inch or something. That would be...

Digging even further, how does the "timer" start, anyway? What is the trigger? Does it look for motion to register in the rear wheels (which is obviously prone to faultiness from launch slip)? ...
