IrritatingHatchet : I know I'm late to the party, but I just wanted to say, y'all have won me over. You don't see too many creators on YouTube these days that are here, not because "oooh I wanna be a famous YouTuber!" but because they're legitimately passionate about creating content and bring their passions to others through media. I've learned so much in the course of watching and enjoying your videos, and the passion of each of the hosts is proudly put on display in every video. I might not have been here from the beginning, but I'm here for the long haul. Keep it up y'all.

Joseph Fetz : No, Carroll was NOT a "big believer in horsepower" at all! One of the most famous quotes from Carroll Shelby is this: "Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races". He is absolutely correct. You cannot have horsepower without torque (it is mathematically impossible), but you can have torque without horsepower, and you can't have horsepower without torque. Carroll understood that at the heart of a racing car is torque; and that gearing, weight, aero, tires, suspension, balance, center-of-gravity, brakes, etc--none of this matters without an engine producing torque. You cannot move a car without it!

Andrian Vidano : Hi there James, Donut team, I'm a new subscriber since November or October 2018 and since then, Donut Media has rapidly become my most favorite YouTube channel. I was never a car guy since in Indonesia where I live, people mostly buy Compact SUVs and Station-Wagons. So finding an affordable sport car is almost out of the questions. In mid 2000, something came to my life, it's the PSP version of Gran Turismo. That game changed my style from arcade racer into a more sim-racer. It also got me interested in cars. I recently completed my GT5, GT6, and GT Sport Limited Edition collections and read the heck out of the Apex books inside it. It really opened my eyes to cars. And due to daily playing of GT Sport, I become more and more interested in sports car history. That's when I found you guys! And the rest is history. My sportiest car was a Ford Fiesta S, the 2015 model, I think, which by then has been sold due to Ford leaving Indonesia. I now aiming for an AE92, the only mass produced Corolla with 4A-GE in Indonesia. An old car, I know, but I want to have it and tune the hell out from it. Or maybe an older 70's Corolla, or maybe save up some more and get an RX-8, who knows. Sorry for this long story, all the best for you guys. Up to Speed has been my window to sports car history. You guys really are the best! P.S. Of course I also play (and watch) Initial D & Wangan Midnight, pfft. God, I'm a weeaboo.

Sérgio Paulo Costa : The best channel ever!!!

Artur Okrutniak : This is the BEST Car “story-teller” on the Web! I subbed this channel when it was still under 100k and now it grew to over a Mil within months, congrats guys, well deserved! Bravo!!! This is amazing and I wouldn’t want my car history delivered any other way!!! The story-telling, the humor, the passion, the comedy are like no other out there! This content is original and I love it!!!!

Jack van Dongen : First it got 186 mph and the faster version goes 185 xddddd

Max Levy : RIP Carol shelby

Bartosz Michta : Great video/s , cant stop watching ! Informative and funny as hell :) I had no idea that Carol Shelby was involved in the viper. RIP u freaking legend!

Joe Kurtz : Got to meet him, then a year later ended up working for his Co, during last year of Shelby Dodge production on the Dakota V8. Thnx for your channel and enthusiasm.
