Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

I love the Kouki S14's. 

 

That's my top candidate for the engine swap I have planned.. Too bad they're like twice as much as an equally used S13  :(

I'd love it for a first car. But nobody in NI will insure a 17 year old on a S14 cri cri

When i was looking for insurance for cars i found 90 BHP to be the limit before prices skyrocketed. I'm 18 so i imagine it's the same for you. If only young idiots would stop crashing their cars we could have better shit to drive.

McLaren P1, if only i had the money. It's the best looking of all the Hypercars in my opinion.

It is a beautiful car, but this is still my favorite.

Ahh the GTR long tail from Le mans looked and sounded epic. Glorious BMW V12. To be honest i'm a massive fan of any McLaren.

I'm not sure which i prefer. The black down the sides puts me off it a little.

Yeah, they're both really nice

 

I just have a thing for the Gulf racing colors. I want my next build to be light blue and orange. It's just so damn sexy  :wub:  :wub:

My favorite engines are those tiny 3-cyl (either NA or turbo doesn't matter). They're so much fun to push to the limit and you're not even breaking the speed limit most of the time. Some of them even sound mad (almost like a flat 6).

 

Currently own a Mk2 Škoda Fabia - with a 1.4 16V (the dealership convinced us to take it over the 1.2 3-cyl... which was a mistake).

I know what you mean, such a good colour combination. Speaking of good colour combinations, the Brabham BT45. The best looking F1 car in my opinion and the Martini colours really set it off.
