Small block v. big block is based on the block, not the displacement. Chevy at one point made a 400ci small block and a 396ci big block. The bore spacing on the big blocks is larger since the blocks were designed to support larger displacement engines. » 10/24/14 3:39pm Yesterday 3:39pm

Looks like its been a while since you've done a BOTC, but I stumbled upon a possibility for you. Wicked Game, originally by Chris Isaak has been covered by Parra for Cuva and it has been getting a lot of air time on BBC1. » 10/24/14 8:56am Yesterday 8:56am

The Star Wars blaster bolt IRL

Your article is disingenuous and misleading, as is the Tesla response to HB5606. Michigan already had franchise laws in place that prevent manufacturers from selling directly to customers. Prior to the passage of this law Tesla could not sell cars directly in Michigan and this law did nothing to change that. E… » 10/21/14 2:33pm Tuesday 2:33pm
