Riding in the rain is risky if you're not well geared up or an experienced rider. But this doesn't mean you should stow your two wheeler away; with caution and practice, you can ride during rain without much struggle. Here are a few tips for getting yourself and your two-wheeler ready for a better riding experience. Ensure Proper Tyre Maintenance Before the monsoon sets in, it is essential to check on the condition of your bike's tyres. Ensure the tyres are in good condition, have a good grip, and have enough tread. A weary tyre will reduce the friction between the tyre and the road, which might force skidding and leading to accidents.

Slot Mods Building Ford GT40-Based 1:32 Scale Slot Car Sets For $150K
Fans of scale model cars and tiny race tracks will soon have a crazy cool slot car track available for purchase, but you better act fast and be ready to spend some money. Michigan-based Slot Mods has announced plans to build a limited number of 1:32-scale tracks nestled into replica Ford GT40 bodies. And this sticker price is $150,000 each. That's about $10,000 shy of an actual Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS , but we're talking about automotive art versus a functional car. And actually, the price is $50,000 less than a custom Porsche 917 track from Slot Mods recently sold for at auction , so one might call the new run a bargain. And with only five planned for this production run, it will be a very rare item. Like the Porsche track, the new GT40 design will feature a highly detailed race track with a distinct Le Mans theme. At Slot Mods, highly detailed translates to authentic-looking track surfaces meandering through landscaped … [Read more...] about Slot Mods Building Ford GT40-Based 1:32 Scale Slot Car Sets For $150K
2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 First Drive Review: Brawnier, Better To Live With
Verdict 8.4 / 10 – Fort Lauderdale, Florida There's a big reason big trucks have become so popular amongst the lifestyle crowd: they're getting much easier to drive, live with, and look at. The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, for example, now has some of the best technology and interior materials of any truck in the class. The arrival of the ZR2 and Bison off-road trims for the first time even means you'll be able to take this monster truck on the trail. So even if you're not regularly towing or hauling, the Silverado 2500 makes a lot of sense as a daily. In terms of all-around usability, the LT model I tested strikes the best balance of luxury and capability for the right price. Tick a few boxes and you get real leather, real wood, a huge touchscreen, and a punchy turbodiesel engine all for around $73,000 as-tested. A vehicle's ratings are relative only to its own segment and not the new-vehicle market as a whole.

Upgraded Ferrari SF90 Spied With Aggressive Aero, Could Be Called LM
It’s impossible to miss the various features that make this Ferrari SF90 different from the one affluent shoppers can buy right now, and we aren’t talking about the white camouflage wrap. This prototype, unofficially known as the Versione Speciale, is awash with aerodynamic changes that go far beyond the massive rear wing. A new set of spy photos give us our best look thus far at the future Ferrari , which our sources now say could officially be called SF90 LM. We've seen other prototypes on video , but the high-resolution images offer a clear view of the larger front fascia with its wide vents and prominent lip out front. We can also identify sections of camouflage on the hood that hide additional vents. Further back, the photos offer a detailed look at the upgraded side intakes for the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 mounted behind the cockpit.
