#Focus ST wears #Goodyear #Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2s. Good grip and turn-in response. The rims? I'm not crazy about them.

#Ford #Focus ST screams above 3000 rpm, controllable torque steer, direct steering, stiff over bumps, but has body roll

The #Kia #Optima is one of my fav midsize sedans with sharp looks, nice interior, turbo power and confident handling.

The #Kia #Optima is one if my favorite midsize sedans. What's your pick in the crowded and competitive category?

But I'm in Italy to drive the Audi R8 V10 Plus with a new dual-clutch trans, 550-hp and lighter curb weight. It's good.

Went for a ride in the #Audi #R8 LMS race car around the Misano World Circuit in Italy. The car is rather fast.

What's one reason we got a #diesel in our long-term #Volkswagen #Passat? Range, baby. Range.

Is the spoiler on the #Nissan #NISMO #370Z garish or cool? I don't think it's too bad.

Great time. Can't wait to do it again with a better kart. The blur in the attached photo is you. Honest.

Gas stop in Brooks, Kentucky. Averaged 22.8 mpg and over 400 miles range on the tank in the long-term #Infiniti #JX35.

The long-term #Infiniti #JX35 at the lunch stop in Findley, Ohio. Culver's makes some mighty fine food.

You won't have a problem finding the door handles on the #Cadillac #ATS at night. Those suckers are bright!

Like drive options? The #BMW #M6 convertible has options for steering, engine mapping, damping and gearbox shifts.

I long for the days when #Honda built the #Integra, #S2000 and #Prelude. Bro's Type R just got detailed and looks good.

Another shot of the #Subaru #BRZ. Responsive steering, tight chassis and just plain fun. Do I want? Yes, very much...
