The result is a car that feels just a tick less...

From Our Friends

Ed Jacklitch of San Jose, California, wrote to say There's one more thing that Joseph Korte August 2010 needs for his Audi a smart battery charger. If he leaves his Audi untouched for a month or more, the onboard electronics will suck the battery dry. The charger can be permanently connected to the battery, and plugged in when the car is asleep. All very true, and a favorite topic of ours after spending a king's ransom in batteries before buying a series of automated battery chargers...

East Meets West

Great news that a new Infiniti M may be built on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class platform CMercedes-Benz-Powered Nissan Z, Ampersand, September 2010 . A perfect combination a German chassis with Japanese electronics. The electronics and navigation system in my 2009 Nissan GT-R are infinitely superior to the clunky and out-of-date system in my 2010 Mercedes GLK350. Perhaps we could have the direct-injection V-6 as well Volkswagen, BMW, Ford and GM have had direct-injection V-6 engines for some time...

I had a good year with Anderson and learned a lot racing against a lot of good guys, Daly recalled. It was the right move going to Juncos Racing. It all came together with my experience in the series and driving for Juncos. It's been a little surprising, there are still a lot of really good guys we're racing against. But I'm not really surprised after I look back at how hard we're working to win. Daly's victories this season include flag- to-flag wins at O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis...

Our Month With A Prius Phev

Toyota shared one of its prototype Prius Plug-In Hybrids for an entire month, sufficient for its novelty to wear off. Like a traditional Prius and how quaint this may sound to older readers , our Prius PHEV uses its gasoline engine both for added kick as well as for charging its battery pack en route.
