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

Well there is that too. Once anything wet, especially gloves and boot, start freezing. No es bueno.

I agree to that. Wet is bad in general for humans. Even if it's hot, you'll still be miserable.

I once spent like 4 days with wet combat boots. Didn't take them off even when I went sleeping.

 My feet were completely white and fucking disgusting in general.

But enough about that.

It's really fun in corners though :ph34r:

 

 

Today i'll agree with you. There wasn't a ton of snow today and i actually had to start the slides myself xD 

Trollhättan was a nightmare though. No snow had been cleared and it hadn't snowed for most of the day.. 

Oh and this had happened

Evasive-FRS-Limited-RWD.jpgMan. . .  The lust for a serious ZC chassis track car continues to grow, and if anyone has a vision of what that would be if would be evasive motorsports . Their ZN6 in time attack form packs a HKS GT supercharger and HKS 2.1L internals among others and it's rated for a modest 430hp to the wheels. The car mostly does standard time attack but it has been converted to a Pikes Peak setup meaning it packs some serious, albeit bespoke, aero work - my word I've never wanted anything more badly in my life . 

 

Forget rocketbunny , this is what a form follows function kit zhould look like. It also happens to be the closest thing to STIs GT300 kit as you can get whilst still retaining some street ability. 

 

@MEC-777 it's amazing when you consider how large a part aerodynamics plays into a lap time. Consider back in 2010 the Mines R34 GTR was rocking 600+ hp from a lightened RB26 , and managed to set a 59 sec lap time at Tsukuba - an unheard of feat for a street car and one of the first to do it. Fast forward a couple of years and Evasive are able to match that time with 25% less power and 600kg less weight. 

 

Amazing stuff . 

 I believe they are at super lap battle this weekend as well to defend there limited RWD title . Speaking of, so is PZ Tuning ! I'll be cheering them on as they attempt to beat the buttonwillow unlimited FWD record of 1:45 set by Spoon Sports last year. FYI the Spoon civic was the first car to beat the record set by Rado in the front winged tC back in 2011, a time of 1:46.

 

The current unlimited awd record is 1:42.

I believe curb weight is wet, but without luggage or occupants. GVWR is the max loaded limit with luggage/cargo and occupants. 

 

So technically if you have one or two people in the Model X, you can cross the bridge. 3 or more and you can't. lol

is there anyone else who likes the smell of gasoline other than me? i think i might be addicted to the smell. it just smells so sweet, and if it didn't kill brain cells, i would sniff it for hours on end, and call me crazy, but i'd actually have a gasoline scented air freshener. that's how much i love the smell.

Love it before and after being burned. Can't wait to have a true straight piped project someday
