On the face of it, by the time the event took place in February, the bitter and divisive affair had achieved little more than illustrating what happens when the sporting co operation that’s so often taken for granted breaks down. To the cynical views of Alinghi and SNG supporters, Ellison had finally gained an entrance to the America’s Cup match proper, something that had eluded him when faced with a multichallenger selection series. By challenging the rules in the courts he now had the defender all to himself.
Overall fit and finish While most Chinese cabinets are touting dovetailed drawer boxes, you generally need to assemble the drawer boxes yourself. This often results in rough, unfilled dovetails and out of square drawer boxes as well as a huge increase in your assembly time. Slides are often marketed as full extension soft close, but the manufacturer is typically another Chinese low bidder, and the quality is quite suspect. Hinges are generally fully concealed, but the hinges themselves are of a cheap stamped metal variety and do not have longevity in mind.
I don’t know perhaps this is OK in the states.I think the person who gave the keys can’t have a proper grasp on reality. Here that would be child endangerment, without question and if repeated the vehicle would be removed.The main point I wanted to make, which is why I began by saying I’m not a parent but I have been the unruly child, is you may not be able to stop the desire to drive so you may be better trying to steer it.
And on a roadtrip? You have to go to the bathroom, maybe buy some more water, possibly a snack. If you have young kids it more involved, there are diaper changes involved, cleaning the car of trash and disposing of it properly, and so forth. By the time that is done, you received the “you may incur idle fees” message on your phone.
They would never get away with it, the area is too built up. I see you are in Canada and I know how quiet some parts of it are, especially compared to England, I used to work for a Canadian specialist tour operator and they taught us that the whole of England can fit into the biggest lakes.
I think your bigger issue is going to be liability insurance. Obviously I don know for sure what that will cost, but motorsports are very dangerous and death or debilitating injury are both possible and occur with some frequency. It not insurmountable, but could be expensive for the school to hold insurance like that (as in they may want, like, $5M liability insurance in the event a student is killed during a race).
He launched the first official White House website, ushering in a new era during his time there. Clinton won a second term in 1996, and with Ted Kennedy, Orrin Hatch, and Hillary, passed the State’s Children’s Health Insurance Program, (CHIP), the largest success in health care reform in his presidency. Hillary also helped usher the Adoption and Safe Families Act and Foster Care Independence Act through Congress.
I make that trip a few times a year for racing. it doesn make financial sense to take an additional two days off for travel, just do it in one long bfakn.club haul. Most of the guys I race with are doing the same thing. Of course, that only 20 ish people so it sure is an edge case but there are also plenty of people in the US doing similar travel.
People making dream car posts about Mustangs and Challengers and Corvettes are generally celebrating finally getting the car they dreamed of after saving up for a significant amount of time. If they just buy one on a whim with cash they had lying around then I agree, calling it an attainable dream car is just as pointless as calling a Fiesta or a Transit one. The point of an attainable dream car IMO is that it a stretch for you to get it, you have to make sacrifices, but you get the car anyway because it the car you been dreaming of for ages. For one person that might be saving up for years to buy a new sports car. For another it might be buying a cheap ratty version of the car they want and spending their own time building it into exactly what they want. But the point is that they put time and effort into it, because it their dream.
If essentially the same opinion gets reposted it automatically mean it not an unpopular opinion (within the context of the sub). It WILL get removed. If your opinion is about a ongoing event, there will usually be a mega thread where you can discuss there. Attempting to evade this rule may result in a temp or perma ban.
Bridging the GT only and LMP/GT series is the fan favourite Japanese Super GT series. Super GT features the aforementioned GT3 category (known as GT300), with some custom cars thrown in the mix, such as the infamous Toyota Prius Racer. Super GT also has the draw of GT500, spec chassis prototype GT cars with turbocharged 4 cylinder engines. They are very fast and very exciting to watch, and feature cars from Nissan, Honda and Toyota/Lexus.
They are released now because politics are slow. The law will always be behind the tech in general. As self driving or even driver assistance like AP or AEB systems advance, the politics realize that they should make some regulations to protect the costumer and make sure that the systems can be trusted (from the politician point of view). I don agree with everything they decide but all the regulations will hit every OEM in the coming years.
It irks me that I get pulled over for something like that while the cops break every traffic law in the books. For example, going the wrong way up a highway exit ramp, so they can get into position to chase speeders. Aren’t they worried that someone might be coming onto the ramp, and hit them head on?
Yesterday, “central locking system” button doesn’t work. Neither does the hazard button next to it. I checked all three fuses and they’re fine. WTF?! UPDATE: Not exactly sure how to explain what it is still, but apparently a little latch that is activated when you push the lock/hazard buttons is broken. My husband jerry rigged it with tape, but that’s only temporary. So now the little button casing just sits outside of its cubbyhole, and I use it that way. And why don’t the doors lock when you begin to drive anyway? Even my old Fords did that!
I am often asked “How could you improve the BMW?” and I say “Why mess with perfection?” But if I was going to change it I’d take the boot out and replace it with a rotisserie oven. ‘Cos driving this baby makes you hungry! Although when you can go from 0 to 60 in six seconds Nando’s is only a foot to the floor away!
The public had also become disenchanted with an event that had become more of an arms race than a yacht race, and the legal bickering had scared off many potential commercial partners. And to sum up just how bitter and twisted the America’s Cup had become, allegations surfaced that a representative of Alinghi’s yacht club had tried to put pressure on the principal race officer to prevent the start of the second race by refusing to operate the starting signals.
My take on it? “Productive” to me simply means that everyone can do whatever they want to do, and that with that freedom ideally overall society will be more productive. Maybe there are less engineers than we want, but the ones that choose to be engineers are inspired and creative. Maybe there are more artists than we need and we can really understand their contribution, but hopefully they can contribute in their own way.
Yes, I know the warning that cars like Mercedes and BMW can cost a lot to maintain, but we’re not talking regular maintenance here. I was rear ended on the 285 a few weeks ago, and the guy at the shop asked me how I liked the car. I subconsciously hesitated in my response, and he called me on it. He then told me his boss had the same car and had multiple complaints, including the sunroof and electronic glitches that required him to enter from the passenger side. I’ve heard a few other tales as well.
I am glad I don have monthly payments now but looking back, buying a BMW was a great decision because I was 24 and I could afford it. Now, after marriage I don see myself buying a German car. I want peace of mind and that something that a German car does not give you. When I look at my wife Camry and her maintenance costs, I wonder is it worth it?
Maybe that where we went wrong. We haven looked at those, just the german ones. That makes sense though, we both drive Japanese cars now and we LOVE them. SO reliable, SO cheap to service, and the luxury features are on par with the 2013 BMW she had (but probably not what they offer now).We also started to rethink how we spend our money too, now that we a little older.
I would like to thank Michael Cotton for his reporting in motorsport for decades since the Ford GT first won Le Mans (that far!). Without his reporting, the huge bulk of the inital Group C research in this post will most likely be lost or hidden in magazines that we still can find. I remember the difficulties of tracking down a certain issue of Autosport magazine for accounts on what happened/announced durring the meeting in 1989. Only to find out that I got Autocar magazine instead. Yeah.
Depending on the features included (upgraded infotainment, leather, etc,) that either “a good price” or “a steal.” Find out which “package” it has. (Mega, Giga, Tera.) And if it BMW Certified Preowned. That gets some extra factory warranty.It comes with a portable “occasional use cable” that is slow, but it works in a pinch.
Is your 5y and 2.5y rearfacing or forward facing? I wouldn’t buy a radian for a ff child. I would buy a combination seat. There are a few narrow combination seats that will last you years longer then the radian. The radian is great for extended rf for heavier kids and okay for ff harness. But the harness and the booster are outgrown at about the same time and the booster has a 50 minimum so she might never weigh enough to fit in the booster mode.
“This statement is the problem. The idea that there is one definition of a car guy.” As you yourself said, not all enthusiasts are the same. I prefer to buy well built, well sorted packages that are OEM tier: Ohlins, Bilstein, etc. It why I bought an R35 GT R. And a 991 GT3. I know I know. It would be “easy” to build something faster if I were a “real” car guy right? Maybe with some Googling I could figure it out and show Porsche and Nissan engineers how it’s done? Perhaps. But suspension engineering isn my thing. And if I were to go aftermarket, I like to buy OEM grade parts with strong company backing. So far that doesn’t exist for Tesla.
But there was that word that got it all done for me. Deserve. It was the one word that I was trying to get at all along. It just never made it past my tongue, and certainly never made it past my keyboard and onto the screen in any of my hubs. In reality, looking back, I kind of feel like an idiot actually. God, it’s so simple. And I didn’t think of it. Carolina Muscle did. Another hubber. Not me. In a word he got it done. In a word he had summed up everything I had been trying to get across. After I read it, I thought with some exaggeration of course that I had quite literally found the Holy Grail in all of Its glory.

So we have NOS, Engine and Body as the top three, Tires and Trans are almost useless, and a time gap of 0.203s between NOS and Trans. Overall, not very impressive numbers from these S6 parts but this is expected as a fully max’d LB M3 GTS has a max evo tune that is just over.6s quicker than S5 with full fusions.
