Shirley Muldowney and Michel Mouton. All that needs to be said about female empowerment!


That being said, we need to break girls of the superficial lifestyle they are raised on nowadays.

@jcali No he didn't. It wasn't even close. Aasbo worked his A$$ off all season long to come from behind. He fell JUST short. Nobody got robbed, jobbed or screwed.

But from the cheer in the stands, you'd think he DID win it all when he beat Forsberg. Unfortunately, Saito was still waiting.

@AbdHadieHR Because on SH, they would even feature a TRA/Kyoto Vespa and send a video crew, 2 photogs and write 5 articles on it. I know I am tired of it because I "got" where they were coming from/going to after their first car, and saw how they could apply that style to almost anything. Lo! and behold, we were treated to each and every LB/TRA car like it was the birth of a new era. Its feeling rammed down our throats now.

@speedhunters_dino @D1RGE EXE I disagree Dino. You guys have jumped completely in bed with Kato and Miura and if you tally how many features you've done on them, its vastly more than any other body kit maker anywhere. And its just a bodykit maker. 


Please don't get me wrong, I do like the style, but I would rather see progression from them instead of same-old, same-old. Arches, Aero, paint, wheels, done.  Other than putting the same kit on a bunch of different cars, where is the progression? And I'm not talking going from reverse-swan-neck wing stays to duckbill spoilers. I mean, when will they team up with a real motorsports powerhouse and do a FIA GT kit? Team with AMG or M/// or something and run a car at the green hell....ANYTHING!?!?!

Speedhunters, can we take like, a 3 month break from Liberty Walk/TRA Kyoto?Rocket Bunny overfenders on everything? Its been 3 years of oversaturation now. Just because they keep doing different cars the exact same way doesn't mean we need a "Groundbreaking!" article and subsequent articles trumpeting it each and every week. It's jumped the shark and headed for meme territory.

Lin, I am extremely jealous. As I opened speedhunters and saw the cover shot, the hair on my arms stood up and my wife could hear "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh....." from my corner desk. I love my modern cars, JDM, muscle, rods, all of it. Been to more car meets than I can remember. But this tent. THIS tent....*gasp*


More pure beauty and art in one supple flank of that Porsche than in all the cars from 1980 on! Of course, what else would Ralph Lauren collect? I could drool over these few cars forever, and just keep getting drawn to just how PERFECT the panels were formed. Just......so. good.

@Brett Allen And the cars that got so many into the scene....Hondas....four-wheel steering Preludes that outhandled 911's, ITR/CTRs that punched out cars WAY above their weight, NSeX's and S2000s that today are incomparable bang for the buck performance, and above all FUN. 90's are only now being truly missed as we get disappointed again and again year after year by the new options of cars to buy.

Awesome to hear from you Mr Horner! My questions:

How do you mediate between two superstar drivers when something happens like Seb and Webber coming together a few years ago?

What kind of offer is thrown on the table when you court someone like Vettel?

How early do you step into a young driver's career and start to offer assistance?

What era/model of F1 car is, to you, the ultimate? And if you were to become the head of the FIA, would you try to bring some of the aural glory of F1 back, of are you all about moving forward to more exotic systems a la Le Mans?

Is the future of F1, in your eyes, heading towards electric motors or where?


Thank you!

  What was your first car? Current daily driver? Dream car? Was there a defining moment that got you into motorsports? Would you ever race tin tops, or are single-seaters the way for you? What was your progression to Formula 1?

@Dimitri A @D1RGE EXE  Tried the BMW steering. Felt OK, but you still feel the road better through rack & pinion. How many race cars have changed over to drive-by-wire? EXACTLY

Every time someone says "drive by wire" I want to die inside. I can live with flappy-paddle shifters but please god don't ever try to tell me that you will feel the road better with a steering wheel that's not even connected to the actual steering. I know its a free car for the weekend so you can't really talk about any shortcomings (or it'll be the last free ride you get), but c'mon Larry. Electric steering.

@Paddy McGrath @apex_DNA I'm with Apex on this. How many major car manufacturers are from Japan? I'd say 3 now. Now count the features SH has done on Nissans (Countless), Toyotas (about half the Nissans) and Hondas (maybe 10 in SH history)


There's your double standard. You barely feature the absolute uber cream of the crop for Honda, yet damn near anything with a sparkly paint job and TE37SLs  from Nissan is like HOLD THE FRONT PAGE ZOMG!!! Look at the size of the scenes. Yet you overlook arguably the largest.


I know the VW kids are just as butthurt. Except for the last 2 years, they got plenty before the new crew joined and axed the dub meet coverage.

@Kevski Style @D1RGE EXE @robzor I download torrents of all the races the day after and sometimes can find them live streamed. Normally they only broadcast Monaco and the USGP.

I would assume that if they take out the play in the sidewall, there must be more allowed in the suspension to retain grip. As now, I know there is more in the sidewall than in the suspension travel. Take that away and how will the cars stay on the track? I guess what I am saying is, I doubt they would just throw 18s at the teams and say, "deal with it". But then again, these are the best engineers in the world....i have no problem seeing what the engineers could come up with to compensate for the more rigid tires.
