The TTAC Racing Shirts Are Finally Here! So We're Going To Give More Of Them Away

What a long, strange trip it’s been for the TTAC Racing shirts! To begin with, they never made it to MSR Houston for the actual race, being left in a storage area by the folks who were prepping the car. The car itself never made it on track for the race. So this commemorates a race effort that, strictly speaking, never happened. It’s like having a shirt for the 1983 Corvette.

Which makes them either worthless or highly valuable. If the latter were the case, they’d be on eBay like, right freaking now. Since it’s the former, we’re raising the stakes.


We initially announced that we would be giving five shirts away. Due to the delay, we’re going to make that ten, and we’ll announce the winners from that thread on Monday. We’ll also give away another five to readers who post in this thread.

Sizes available will be Men’s L, XL, and 2XL, as well as Women’s “S” as modeled above by recurring TTAC imaginary character and improbably-constructed child of the Sixties, Julie Hyde. She would like to complain for the record that she received no chance to do any makeup or prepare for the photos. Complaint noted and ignored, Jules. No prizes for guessing what her nickname is.

    I'd take an L size. I just wish I was as good of a mechanic as I am a fan of TTAC.

    I like the thong idea. Since I'm a 2xl kind of guy, there would be PLENTY of room to work with material-wise. Picture this: A row of overly bright sequentially flashing LEDs down the backside terminating in a flashing stop sign strategically placed at just the wrong entrance. On the front, a picture of just Jack's hair embroidered over the crotch. Then screen the Merc racecar below the hair. I'd suggest a few prototypes before committing to production. 2xl. Anyone seen my Dewers?

  • Douglas I have a 2018 BMW 740e PHEV, and love it. It has a modest electric only range compared to newer PHEV's (about 18 miles), but that gets me to the office and back each day. It has a small gas tank to make room for the battery, so only holds about 11 gallons. I easily go 600 or more miles per tank. I love it, and being able to take long road trips without having to plug in (it just operates like a regular Hybrid if you never plug it in). It charges in 75 minutes in my garage from a Level 2 charger I bought on Amazon for $350. Had an electrician add a dryer outlet beside the breaker box. It's the best of both worlds and I would definitely want a PHEV for my next car. 104,000 miles and ZERO problems with the powertrain components (so far).
  • Panther Platform I had a 98 Lincoln Mark VIII so I have a soft spot for this. The Mark VIII styling was not appreciated by all.
  • Grant P Farrell Oh no the dealership kept the car for hours on two occasions before giving me a loaner for two months while they supposedly replaced the ECU. I hate cords so I've only connected it wirelessly. Next I'm gonna try using the usb-c in the center console and leaving the phone plugged in in there, not as convenient but it might lower my blood pressure.
  • Jeff Tiny electrical parts are ruining today's cars! What can they ...
  • CEastwood From zero there is nowhere to go but up . BYD isn't sold in the U.S. and most Teslas are ugly azz 90s looking plain jane drone mobiles . I've only seen one Rivian on the road and it 's not looking good for them . I live out in the sticks of NW NJ and EVs just aren't practical here , but the local drag strip thrives in the warmer months with most cars making the trip from New York .
