Travis Langness

Travis Langness, Reviews Editor

I drive new cars every week by putting them through the crucible that is Los Angeles traffic. Then I write about it. Not bad for a lifelong car nut.

My job is to conduct research, drive and write the vehicle reviews you see here every day. Occasionally they make me drive McLarens.

Ryan ZumMallen

Mike Schmidt

I'm involved with performance testing, vehicle evaluation and writing reviews. Fourteen-year-old me would be pretty stoked — current me is pretty stoked, too.

"Modify every car you own." That seems to be my motto. Equally obsessed with cars, motorsports, Subarus, Transformers G1 and photography.
