Modified Feature - 8/25/12 - Fairbury Speedway
On-board camera on the G73 of Scott McMichael during the UMP Modified feature at Fairbury American Legion Speedway. Several cautions at the beginning resulted in the move to single-file restarts. I spun in turn 4 when I got into the dusty middle groove, myself. Red flag for Jared Cagley's flip in the 99. Then I spun again in turn 4 on the restart. Started 15th, credited with a 13th place finish.
Modified Heat #1 - 8/25/12 - Fairbury Speedway
On-board camera from the G73 of Scott McMichael during UMP modified heat race #1 at Fairbury American Legion Speedway. I started 6th and finished 8th. The camera got pretty muddy early, though I was able to wipe much of it off under caution. It then got muddied up right away again.

Driving Lessons & Tire Care : How to Drive a Car With Manual Transmission
Driving a car with manual transmission requires a good balance between engine power and the throttle, as the clutch is pressed to disengage the engine power during gear shifts, and it is gently released while the gas pedal is pressed. Drive a manual transmission vehicle with instructions from an ASE-certified technician in this free video on driving.
POV Drive: Lamborghini Murcielago (6 Speed Gated Manual)

Well, now that you've "driven" my TT Gallardo, Superleggera, R8, and Amy's Audi R8 I thought it'd be fun to let you get behind the wheel of the Lamborghini Murcielago as well! The car is much heavier and bulkier to drive than the Gallardo, but still loads of fun. Personally, I'd prefer it if I could only choose one. Simply Put: The Gallardo is a great daily driver. The Murcielago is a weekend car. You could get in the Gallardo and drive across the country no problem, the Murcielago, well, you might be a bit worn after an hour or two ;) At the end of the day though, nothing touches my heart like the Murcie. The Lambo doors, V12 roar, and overall presence put it in a league of its own. I thought it'd be funny to include the Walgreens stop in there. Gives you a better illusion of going for a drive and running errands, right? Haha. Mainly just wanted to show what it's like to get in and out with the scissor doors as a lot of people ask.

Volvo Cars Starts Production of New Efficient Four-Cylinder Engine Family
Volvo has begun production on a new class of four-cylinder gasoline to increase driving pleasure and fuel efficiency in Volvo's suite of luxury cars. The development and production take place in-house at Volvo Car Group and form a vital part of our strategy for independence. The new engines were developed by a Swedish team of engineers. These smaller engines are optimized and deliver higher performance than today's six-cylinder units, while offering lower fuel consumption than the current generation of four-cylinder units
The strategy of four-cylinder petrol engines and driveline electrification is the path that Volvo Cars has chosen for the future. With total control over the development and production of engines and drivelines and by reducing the number of engine variants, the result is greater ability to influence quality.
This is just the beginning of a new wave of technology and flexibility for Volvo Cars. Stay tuned for more.
