1 week, 2 days ago on Introducing Project EcoBoost
modification? A new handbrake. My God, it's hideous with the weird angle and
short stick. For the rest, new (coloured, but nothing to flashy) rims and bigger
exhaust pipes. For the performance, something you fancy yourself, the old man
that you are. I've seen on Youtube 600 hp packages for the EcoBoost, which
sound pretty awesome. Reliability is probably out of the question. So maybe a
nice catback, slightly bigger turbo's etc. The exterior is good how it comes
factory, apart from the earlier mentioned rims and exhaust pipes, so I would
leave that stock.
Can't wait to see how it turns out. So many options!
I believe there are a lot of women or younger girls who are interested in cars or the automotive culture. But maybe there is a psychological barrier most of them have to break trough. When I look around my own environment I notice most girls don't talk about it, but keep staring at a picture or a car passing by. So it looks they are interested, but it doesn't come up in a conversation.
Maybe it's because of the difference when growing up. Girls get a lot of girly toys like Barbie or even make-up these days. That won't trigger their automotive interests. I don't have a solid explanation for it, but that's why I think most of the people in the industry are men. Which is a shame, because women and girls who are into cars make a welcome change in the scene in my opinion.

To be honest, I don't like it. 18 inch is way to big for a F1 car, it doesn't look right. They say it will improve road tires, but how expensive are those going to be? I'm sceptical about it.

Great story Matt. I feel like the atmosphere is captured and told, just as it is on a friday evening. I just wish we would drag race more in The Netherlands...

@AxelFoley Probably a engine from a later model. They are 2,5 litres.

I think horsepower is the most usefull at de bankings of Irwindale and Seattle, just as Conrad said. For the other tracks you need to have grip. It sounds cool when everybody has a 1000 ponys under the hood, but that won't bring you the championship...
Restrictors are good, it's pushes the teams to innovate for many horsepowers. But then privateers will be out of the game because it will become a money game.

PS. The Impreza is a blobleye, (2003-2005), a hawkeye is the facelict model.

The ismart E30 Wagon and the XJ are the two best in this post if you ask me. No demon camber, just tastfully adjusted while maintaining the awesome stanced look. The Jag looks like a maffia car, yet there is English classyness.

Great location! Downloaded a lot, and I mean a lót, of new backgrounds. The 300SL is fantasic to look at. I agree on the steering wheel of the SLS, it looks cheap for a car of a couple grand.
Jonathan, well done on the writing. Enjoyed reading this article.

One of my favorite articles on Speedhunters, the M3 E30 is also one of them. Maybe it's the light? Maybe because I admire these cars for a few years now...
Job well done, Mr. Klingelhoefer.

Adn well done Larry,solid story, also with a few shots of the plane. It gets me the feeling how it was instead of only looking at nice pictures!

@Steve EDGE It's a great car. Credit to you Sir!
Why would you do an engine swap when the enginebay looks this clean already? Obviously for more power, but it's not what I would do. I'm looking forward to the new paint, the body is good as it's right now!

Does the links work? Otherwise I'll send an email.
@funky29 Explain why so they can fix it.
I use Google Chrome and on top of the page there is a massive white block after loading the site (while the store page just loads normally). I have to scroll down to see the site, which I quite like by the way. Especially that all photo's are desktops now! It looks very clean and new. My parents use Internet Explorer on their laptop and they don't have this problem, maybe it's something with the browser? Keep up the good work!
You made me curious, it will be worth waiting if I look at the top image!

Great post. That's a perfect week in my book. Can't wait for the posts of the Brabus factory and the Südschleife. Nothing but respect for the C-Type Jag driver, all the way from England to the Ring in that car.
Now I wan't to go to the Ring again... Lets see when I have a gap in my agenda.

Selling the large prints is an great way to expand Speedhunters to the people that aren't familiar with it yet. When you see a photograph hanging on a wall by friends, it gets your attention.
I would had buyed one if I was there, what a shame I wasn't. Maybe an idea for other events as well?

If they make a Supra or Celica/MR2, I hope they are drivers cars, just like the GT86. Not to much gadgets, that makes it to expensive. And they have to look good!

I always had a weak spot for the Supra. It's a very goodlooking car and nice to see that the interior is still there! The engine bay looks really clean with all the carbon fiber.

The TVR conversion is badass, but I prefer the stock look. It's is beatiful as it came out of the factory.

I hope Kimi won't join RBR, Lotus is a good team, so why change? The person who takes Webbers his seat will be the #2 driver at RBR, no question. Vettel is one of the best drivers on the grid in this car. Don't expect that they put him as the second driver.

Great job Stephen!
Any chance there will be more video's in the future of the events you guys cover? Not too much, just a few a year. 3, maybe 4. It puts Speedhunters up a step in the 'this-is-a-awesome-automotive-site'-ladder.
1 year, 7 months ago on In The Hunt
What a car! Clean exterior with a beautiful interior. With the painted small bumpers and the black logo it's a goodlooking Jetta. Add the classic BBS and you got yourself a beauty! I like the BBS rims, some call it lame, I think on almost every old VW it looks good. The interior is a place I could spend hundreds of hours while driving. Maybe the car doesn't have sport car performance, but it's about the looks. When you pass a large window and see the reflection. That's something I could get used to. And then, when you're at your destination you step out of the car. But just before you walk inside you turn around and look at this thing.
About the budget bags, the satisfaction when you get it right has te be a great feeling.
Good article, both writing and photo's!

When I read the title and saw the opening photo the article immediately got my attetion. I recognised it! I have been there 6 years ago. It was my first car museum, and I still have two model cars on my desk from there. A Carrera GT and a 911 police car.
I definitely have to go there again. Great article Ben and Paddy!

@NickTE What I mean is that these cars were used in rally. You don't see many people tuning their car to make it look like a rally version. I think thats to bad.

It's a shame to see a lot of Impreza's and Evo's being slammed lately. Why not make it look like a rally car? Isn't that much cooler?
@GeraRodriguez Kimi closed the door, but Perez still went for it. That's why he was upset. He went for a gap that wasn't there anymore which evolved into Perez crashing into Kimi his car.
1 year, 8 months ago on DISCUSSION: PEREZ - HERO OR VILLAIN?
@CarpeDeez Senna used the 'crash or get overtaken' tactic as well
It's good to see a young driver trying, but somethimes he was too far away. He would never make it. It's better to wait another lap when you have a better drive out of the corner and make sure you're next to the car in front of you.
When he hit Kimi he was still behind him when he made the move. That was after Kimi had closed the door already, so there was no chance he could overtake him at that moment. Yet, he decided to make the move even when there was no room. That was a mistake.
For the rest, good racing. At Monaco you have to take chances if you want to overtake. Everybody knows that and should remind that when he makes these moves.
