Add Lightness: A wild Softail street tracker from SMCO

Suicide Machine Company build machines that go fast and turn well. Brothers Aaron and Shaun Guardado have a taste for speed, and it’s right there in their company slogan: “Fast Loud Deathproof.” So when they were invited to build a custom Harley for this year’s Born Free show in Southern California, it wasn’t likely to be a chopper. Instead, SMCO took a Softail Standard, shaved 160 pounds [72 kilos] off it, and built a rapid street tracker that’s borderline insane. “The first step was to p...

Acura SH-AWD Explained: What Is It & How Does It Work?

Like other all-wheel-drive systems, Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) distributes engine power to the front and rear wheels. Four spinning wheels instead of two means having increased traction in all road conditions, including wet tarmac, loose surfaces, and snow-covered pavement. However, the similarity between SH-AWD a conventional all-wheel drive (AWD) system ends there. The ‘Super Handling’ part adds torque vectoring between the left and rear wheels.
