The power band felt just fine! No dips in power, and when it shifted to a higher gear, it was quick enough to keep the forward momentum with no hiccup. It also sounds awesome when it hits the next...

Diego Corrales VS Jose Luis Castillo May 7, 2005. One of the best fights in my opinion, and the wrong man won. Diego repeatedly spit his mouth piece out to buy more time, and when he went down for...

Yes, and the Boss lost! Supposedly Ford targeted the Boss as the benchmark for the GT. So far it appears they missed, at least in straight line testing. It remains to be seen if it will best the...

What's your point? I just went to the Chevrolet site and built a 1LE 2SS and it was over $46k. The car tested in the article, and supplied by Ford, was likely a heavily optioned car. The GT starts at...

Funniest part of the article to me was the Ferrari engineers crying foul about the Z/28.
