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

Another thing about the Ford Focus stuff I was talking about the other day, honestly I looked into it and frankly. It doesn't seem insurance would be earth shatteringly more expensive on a V6 Dodge Charger and I'm seeing some 2015 and 2016 Chargers only going for like $2,000-$3,000 more than a Focus Titanium.

So I mean, if I can't find a focus titanium. I might be able to find a SXT Charger for just a touch more

He talks soooooooooooooo much shit about it. Tomorrow I'm just going to say dude 0-60 in 7.2 seconds and a 15.2 1/4 mile your not even worth the premium gas in my car to run. Watch out for modded Civic si's they will pull you hard. Not sure where you beat a stage 2 wrx anything it a 300hp Corvette. XD 

I can't race with my Peugeot unfortunately. It is a 100Kw turbo-diesel, still runs well and pulls hard with 340nm torque, but its around 9s 0-60. Well, at least no premium gas lol. Thinking when I get the money might buy an old civic or accord, or whatever the sports one is, integra I think? They are going on me, either that or an Impreza.

Nah I'd keep it I could use a daily beater car for the winter that's better then my Civic.

yeah .. people like him is why i want a big wagon that looks way heavier than it is and with decent power and handling 

 

My 1st taste of that was when my dad in an 1989 audi 100 with an NA 2.3 i5 (like 135hp iirc ) and the quattro awd just walk away from a e46 320i ? (i just remember that it was a new ish at the time 320i) who was revving at the lights  .... i need to add that it was the middle of winter and the audi also had studded tires on what basically was snow and ice :D 

it happened when my age was in singe digits ... so all i remember was what cars were involved and the fact that i was just getting pushed into the seat and heard the redline of a sweet bmw i6 getting more distant by the second 

 

god i wish we still had that audi ... thing was amazing in the winter

Idk all I know is it's not worth the fuel to even bother racing him.

It's going to suck for a lot of people once I get my K04 installed. Hell it sucks for a lot of people now just being stage 2+ on my GTI. Why he thinks it's faster then his fox body mustang with the carb'd 5.0 with full bolt ons and gears idk.?

TBH I'd approach it from a different standpoint and let him know what sets your car apart from his, in terms of aftermarket parts. His car probably is faster if your golf / civic was stock, he'd probably look into it himself. Being a proud car owner as he is is what kicks it all off really, and a healthy competition always leads to cool things.

Nah stock GTI/Civic si is a 14 second car his is a 15 second car. He'd still lose. He knows my mods still thinks he's faster then my GTI and my mustang.
