I've never heard anyone argue all seasons are just as good as summer or winters in their designed purpose. What I have heard is that they tend to be good enough for most people most of the time assuming you don't put yourself in stupid situations. If you can't afford or store two sets of dedicated wheels then the next… » 3/03/15 5:57pm 3/03/15 5:57pm

Depends on what you mean. Do you mean remotely controller air superiority drones or do you fully autonomous AI? Both have their challenges. Remotely controlled drones are doable with current technology but can fall prey to countermeasures that can jam or hack the signal, There has been talk before about the… » 1/02/15 6:03pm 1/02/15 6:03pm

They don't have a website up for it but I checked with a BMW service center awhile back and they can order any BMW engine in complete form and sell it direct. Their quoted prices are stupid though, it was 15 grand for an M5 V10. But it is brand new with all the bits and pieces attached. It would be nice if M and AMG… » 1/02/15 11:35am 1/02/15 11:35am

It's a commonly held opinion by those in the know that while the corvette has the potential to be faster than a lot of super cars it is much less forgiving and harder to drive and therefore in the real world with normal drivers tends to be slower. Tsuchiya was pointing that out while at the same time making the apt… » 1/01/15 9:51pm 1/01/15 9:51pm

I doubt we will ever user lasers as all weather ciws. You just cant get around the weather problem. If its directed energy weapons you want then we are probably looking at charged particle weapons and not lasers. In other words if you want it to work in the fog or rain you're better off with phasers instead of lasers. » 12/10/14 4:03pm 12/10/14 4:03pm

Those DB V12s were super high tech for the age. Sodium filled valves, direct injection, meth injection, the list goes on. The work done on those in WW2 translated directly to Mercedes gran prix cars after the war. One cool bit of trivia is that 109's could do negative G's while Spitfires couldn't. This was because… » 11/16/14 3:28pm 11/16/14 3:28pm

The E30 is overrated. It has shit suspension, is slow as hell and a pain to work on. People ask way to much for them now. The 190e is better in every single way, more reliable, more comfortable, safer and as a chassis can take more power without becoming a useless driftfest. The 190e was one of the first really… » 11/11/14 9:04pm 11/11/14 9:04pm

I think you are being too critical of their use of the Lima/Mike 'winders. First off, the L/M versions were a huge upgrade to previous generations and they actually did what they were supposed to. Sure a modern airforce with modern equipment and training can defeat them but anything from the 90's or before is dead… » 11/02/14 12:30am 11/02/14 12:30am

I got to shoot one today. its a great machine. Super accurate and due to its action the recoil is practically nothing. 100 yard standing with iron sights is idiot proof. The gun actually makes you a better shooter and weighs nothing. It is far superior to an AR type, even really nice ones. » 11/01/14 8:56pm 11/01/14 8:56pm

So how bad is Kotaku feeling the heat now that Jalopnik is doing the game reviews? Not that I'm complaining or anything, I've always felt that among the gawker sites Jalopnik has had the best writing and the strongest integrity. » 10/07/14 6:29pm 10/07/14 6:29pm

Fair enough man, that makes total sense and its a shitty situation. My only question is, if what you say is true for the majority of Argentinians then why does your president bring it up every now and then to redirect attention from actual problems in the country? If people were sore over fighting a pointless war over… » 10/02/14 8:08pm 10/02/14 8:08pm

Higher octane fuel is not available in Europe. That's a common misconception due to the difference between AKI and RON octane ratings. Unless you are in Kalifornia where they screw you on octane you get the same they do in Europe. UNleaded is unleaded, plus is plus and premium is premium also race gas, also known as… » 9/10/14 11:50pm 9/10/14 11:50pm
