There are always parasitic losses. It may not be the same typical percentage...could even be less, but there are always parasitic losses. It's a mechanical device. There is still rotational...

Here are some more specs on the Tesla...these are actually for the 2013, and I understand the model that is being discussed in this topic is a newer awd model, iirc? This data at least gives us a...

Not just massive torque, but massive torque multiplied about 1.4x from a torque convertor, and then multiplied again 4.7x by the first gear ratio...that's what the driveshaft is really seeing when...

That was my thought as well...it grabs hard on 1st, which causes the initial buckling or ripple in the driveshaft wall. At this point, it has been structurally compromised and can no longer support...

Also make sure the tires you are getting aren't unidirectional, too. If you are putting unidirectional tires on a staggered setup, then you're really frozen on moving tires around.

It may have twisted before it actually snapped, too. Literally, you would need to be watching it underneath the car as it's happening to really know the exact point it actually "failed".

S'just weird that a HC can keep up with a ZO6, let alone outpace it. It just defies reason in the car world. A larger, heavier, blocky Challenger just shouldn't be able to keep up with a smaller,...

Also consider that the actual air going into the engine isn't necessarily going to be the ambient temp of the outside air. On a forced-induction design, the air will inherently and significantly...

Ok, I can buy those numbers... .37 (ZO6) vs .35 (HC). Now, you need to apply the frontal area to those numbers. That will tell you how much actual wind drag will occur (as far as comparing...

I wouldn't describe them as constant solid black marks. It always looked to me like there are darker "blips" along the path of the mark, suggesting a pulsing ABS action. Whether that actually...

Update on the most unique auto RT exhaust on the road :p

I've gotten my fair share of jeers about the direction I went on my exhaust. For those who aren't familiar, I replaced the mid-mufflers with 12" bullet-style glasspacks, and the rear resonators have...

I think this road is still inside the Denver "metro" area. It's not like this guy was out in the boonies (though, it certainly could be relative, considering CO).

As I noted earlier, the problem...
