Carpool Karaoke Has Everyone Singing

We all listen to music and often sing in our cars. James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, realized that driving is a way of life and something that most of us do on a daily basis. James moved to Los Angeles from the UK to host the show and decided to make his commute a segment on his show. The bit was an instant hit and will soon become its own separate TV show as well as its own series via Apple Music. Many of the world's most famous singers are eagerly lining up to be part of the segment which features Corden singing along with them, often to their hit songs.

Experience the Historic Isle of Man TT Races

The Isle of Man TT Races may be the most famous motorcycle event you've never heard of. Held on The Isle of Man (in the Irish Sea between Ireland and England) this single event draws racers and spectators from around the world. It is truly unique in that the 37-plus mile Mountain Course is considered one of the most challenging tracks in the world. From the start, the track seems to be a never-ending series of stone walls, telegraph poles, jumps, bends, bumps, and manhole covers. Extreme concentration and endurance is an absolute necessity for any racer wanting to compete, let alone win, this one-of-a-kind race. The race has a unique and colorful history dating back to 1903 when road racing was made illegal by an Act of parliament which set a 20mph speed limit on all roads. With Isle...

AAA Study Debunks Premium Gasoline

According to a recent study by the American Automobile Association, AAA, there is absolutely no benefit in using premium fuel in a vehicle that only requires regular. Today nearly 16.5 million drivers in the U.S. use premium gasoline in non-performance vehicles, literally wasting their money needlessly. On average a gallon of premium costs 18% more than regular. Multiply that over the course of a year, per driver, per vehicle, and we're talking billions of dollars (nearly $2.1 billion in 2015). The researchers behind the study tested 87 octane and 93 octane fuel in various makes and models of non-performance vehicles. These cars and trucks were graded on performance, emissions, and fuel economy. The results were clear, there was absolutely no benefit in using the higher octane...

When Should You Replace the Serpentine Belt?

While many people regularly take their vehicles in for routine maintenance, one part of the engine is often misunderstood and overlooked.. the Serpentine Belt. In fact, most people don't think about it until it is too late, which can leave you stranded. While you may not perform your own engine maintenance, it is still important to understand how the more critical components work and how to recognize a problem before you find yourself waiting for a tow truck. The serpentine belt "snakes" around several components of the engine, transferring mechanical power to nearly every critical part. Under normal conditions, the belt needs to be replaced every 4 to 6 years. However, those living in areas where the temperature and humidity can vary greatly throughout the year may need to change it...

Lamborghini to Enter the Volume Game

As long as anyone can remember, Lamborghini's business model has been based on extremely high quality, branding, a high price tag, and a generous dash of hype. That appears to no longer be the case as the company recently announced doubling-down on the production of their Urus SUV. The luxury SUV, priced at around $200,000, will have 7,000 units produced within the next year, making up for more than half of all Lamborghinis made. The United States is deemed to be the main target market for the Lamborghini SUV as there is still a high demand for premium SUV's throughout the nation. China comes in at a close second as their economy continues to prosper. The original Urus, debuting at the Beijing Motor Show in 2012, was expected to be powered by the VW 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine....

Supercharger vs. Turbocharger - How and Why?

While there are plenty of differences between superchargers and turbochargers, both types of engine modifications are known as forced inducted engines. The goal of this modification is to compress the airflow going into the engine to give it more power and performance. This also allows the engine to use more fuel, giving it greater horsepower and torque. What Is A Supercharger? There are different types of superchargers on the market today. The thing they have in common is that they are all belt driven. Each variation comes with slight differences in performance. For example, a centrifugal supercharger contains an impeller, which compresses air and forces it into the engine. This is contrasted against a root supercharger, which often sits on top of the engine. The root supercharger...
