How Not to Wash Your Car
We are all guilty of washing our cars with one bucket or bowl with whatever soap we have laying around the house. And some of us are guilty of taking our cars through the drive through car wash. I’m going to tell you to stop doing both, as you are actually causing harm to the finish of your car. Now let me start off by saying, I am guilty of both, before I was a detailer I used a single bucket with whatever soap I could find because I just didn’t care enough, and all of that changed once I started working for a big detail company, which I will leave nameless.
Most Affordable Cars for College Students
What are you looking for in a great college car? Well, if you're commuting, the most important things are going to be reliability and fuel efficiency. You don't want to treat your college car all precious like, you're just looking for an inexpensive way to combine great safety ratings and ample cargo space. Another thing to consider: buy a car that doesn't call attention to itself. A flashy car is not ideal for a college student, with all the debts they're racking up, they are in no position to shell out cash on a pricey ticket. Now, you don't want such an ugly beater that a potential date is afraid to step foot in it, but you know, find a nice middle ground.
My First Car Was Destroyed In a Flood
My first car was a brand new 2010 Subaru Forester X Premium. I loved everything about it: the cloth seats, the huge sunroof, the bright headlights, the killer sound system (after I added a small preamp unit, of course), the shiny black paint, the way it revved when I pressed the gas pedal just beyond that special point. It was a beaut, and it was my beaut.
NASCAR's "Win and You're In" Playoff System Needs to Change
For those who do not follow NASCAR, there has been a "playoffs" system in place since 2004. Since its debut in the 2004 season, it has gone through various different versions. The current iteration, that was put into place for the 2014 season (with a tweak for the 2017 season), mimics a championship system seen in football. Sixteen drivers make the NASCAR playoffs, with a win being an instant pass in. Should sixteen drivers not win a race, then the rest are in on points alone. Once sixteen drivers are in the Playoffs, there is a series of three "rounds" with four races each, with four drivers being knocked out of the Playoffs after each round. The same rules apply: "win, and you're in." After the third round of four races, four drivers advance to the final race of the season, the Ford 400. Whoever of the final four drivers in the Playoffs finishes the highest wins the championship. For the 2017 season, NASCAR added "stages" to all of the races, with all races having three stages (with the exception being the Coca Cola 600, the longest race of the year). These stages award points to the top ten finishers at the end of the stage, ten for first and one for tenth. The first place finisher also receives a "Playoff point." The winner of the race also receives five of these Playoff points. Because all sixteen Playoff drivers' points are reset at the turn of a round, the Playoff points are added onto that reset number, giving a driver more points to start off with.
What Does the New Engine Formula Mean for Formula 1?
The 2017 season has been a far better one than previous years in terms of exciting racing, with the field becoming closer together in terms of performance. We have certainly seen a decline in the number of races in which Mercedes just drive off in to the distance as we saw so often before.
