I've had Audis and VWs for the last 20 years. Recommended interval has always been 10K - on dino-juice! I tend to use synthetic in turbocharged engines due to my belief that it resists thermal breakdown better than conventional oil. I'm not sure that's true, but if you happen to be driving a V6 Biturbo Audi...… » 2/25/15 4:34pm Wednesday 4:34pm

The 930 "widowmaker" had to come up. Although... it really wasn't that much power, it was just savage how it was delivered and completely unforgiving of being mishandled.

The 1100 (yes, that was one-thousand, one hundred) HP primary trainer I learned to fly in would like to have a word with you about "Mind-Bending" HP.

BTW... that was 1100, derated from 1400.

As a point of comparison: I later flew the Beech King Air 90 - an 8 passenger mini-airliner. It has 2 550HP PT-6 engines. Same… » 1/23/15 5:22pm 1/23/15 5:22pm

There have already been ton of replies, so I expect I'll be lost in the noise, but I'd like to nominate 3 cars (and I've owned or driven all of them)

'68 VW Beetle autostick (scary as hell, couldn't do 50)
'78 VW Bus with 3sp automatic
'81 VW Westfalia. 67hp in a 5000lb+ vehicle. it was REALLY SLOW. » 12/19/14 5:19pm 12/19/14 5:19pm
