I agree, would have been the best choice. You wont see him hate on many things (may be nature of his program), but he still gets the point across. Like when he reviewed the 3 seriers hardtop convertable, made mention a few times it was like +350lbs, but loved it for what it was - a coastal cruiser he wouldnt trade for much of anything for that role.

Very nice, never heard of this guy before. Great review, great video work, great sound work, love the car, love the road (he never said what road it was! I thought it was Cerro Noroeste at first, but Cerro Noroeste doesn't have that many 1-lane sections).

Check out some of his other reviews, you'd be surprised hot legit some of his stuff is.
Also, looks like the Audi he talks about and possibly that lambo use my TVS blower design.

TVS is definitely becoming the standard in superchargers...way more efficient.

+1 on Matt Farrah being a cast member of Top Gear USA.

If he replaced Tanner I wouldn't cry about it.

He's a good host, and his manner is really awesome. He keeps his cool but gets 'giddy' enough when it's called for, but it's not like he's some wowwy host. I don't know how much TG USA sucks, but this guy is just a slightly above average host imo.
I do like his videos though. They are well put together!

Your kidding right.... Tanner is the only host on that show that can actually drive a car. I enjoyed Rutledge more and more as the season progressed. I think this guy would be a great replacement for Adam Ferrara who I think quite frankly, sucks.

That was his point; this guy is a better host/driver combo than Tanner, by far.
clarkma5
Tanner's my favorite one on that cast :/

I'm still in the "replace Rutledge" camp, though he did grow on me through the season too. Just not enough for me to think he deserves to be there.

I find Adam Ferrararara the most ordinary of the 3. There is almost nothing that stands out about him or his character. :shrug:

I absolutely disagree.

Tanner can drive, but he always sounds like he's reading his script or doing an advertisement.

Plus, I sense he's the ricer of the group.

Looks like Matt Farrah will already be on a car show.

Oh no. sad.gif

Hosted by Adam Corolla and featuring Dan Neil?

Even if it is good, no car enthusiasts will watch it because Ray Wert will jizz one of his dirty smear campaigns against it. He HATES those guys.

I have no idea who/what you're talking about, razor.

The guys from the Axis of Oversteer blog should host a show. From the looks of it though, they all have cushy day jobs.

Okay, maybe not Adam Corolla, but Dan Neil. Ray Wert ran one of Jalopnik's famous "This is the [NOUN] who [VERB PHRASE]ed [OPTIONAL INDIRECT and/or DIRECT OBJECT]" smear campaigns complete with a very unflattering picture. Specifically, they targeted Dan Neil for his pro-PDK comments when reviewing the Boxster Spyder. Even most of DS was on the Ray Wert "TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS FOR DAN NEIL" bandwagon when that happened; I could find the thread if necessary.
clarkma5
I don't know/care who Ray Wert is and I imagine few people do...

He's the Editor-in-Chief of Jalopnik, and he gets butthurt really, really easily.

Take a look at the Underground Racing TT Gallardo's... those are the most insane cars in the world in my opinion.

This.

Honestly you guys like Matt Farah? He's the butt of a lot of jokes amongst automotive journalists lol.

Even... the way... he speaks... annoys the shit out of me. /farah speech pattern.

Matt has a lot of pauses... i don't like that lol.

Yes, it sounds like he's talking in bullet points, but not like he's talking from a script. I'd rather have the former.
