Brits and Americans use different words for different things, but we're pretty sure "help" isn't one of them. For one, speed cameras can see through plastic wrap, and the idea that they can't is something of a myth (conveniently busted by Mythbustersa few years back). There are other ways of stealthily stopping a speed camera from reading his plate, and while some work better than others, they're all illegal in California and most other states.

Not only does plastic wrap not block out a speed camera, it's also fairly obvious to anyone with eyes. Should a cop drive up behind him and notice his handiwork, he's definitely looking at a ticket for an obscured plate. We can sympathize with Ramsay's desire to put his foot down with a 552-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-8 under the hood of that Ferrari California T, but he'd be better off with a creative defense than these sorts of extralegal measures.

There is one foolproof way to beat a speed camera (aside from stealing it), though we can't officially recommend it either: Mythbusters alsofound many units weren't able to record a car moving faster than 200 mph. Maybe that's what all those Texans were doing last year.

Ranger Raptor gets its big brother's 10-speed gearbox .
In a most fortuitous case of hand-me-down engineering, Ford has bestowed the F-150 Raptor's excellent 10-speed on its scrappy little brother, the Ranger Raptor.This is good news. The big Raptor's transmission is excellent. Ten speeds seems a little weird on paper, but in operation, the shifts aren't noticeable, so you don't feel like the truck is hunting for a gear all the time. It's also able to jump multiple gears, just in case you need to go from freeway cruise to maximum attack at the drop of a hat.
