Corvette or a GT-R? Hmmm... tough choices I will never have the opportunity to make...
M5 is $83K for 500hp. I guess in your world, that's a loss too.enthennd said:70k + 450 hp = for the lose.
Don't sweat it. It's a instinctive reaction for alot of people that like cars. HP #'s mean everything to them. All wheel turning systems frighten them. Heck, heated seats frighten them. :chuckles:enthennd said:Eh, in my world I couldn't afford any of them. :shrugs:Beast said:M5 is $83K for 500hp. I guess in your world, that's a loss too.
Oh well, I guess I didn't think it through, I retract that statement.
I know. It's so terrible now. Civic EX is much better b/c we get to jam in the synchronizers ourselves.Red Falcon said:WHY THE **** DIDN'T THEY MAKE A MANUAL! I now hate this car.
Damn straight! skyline owners will have to watch the Dodge Caliber w/ binoculars yo!lVlemphizStylez said:The big bad SS Vette will be b!tch slapping this across the 1/4 ....Hell the current Zo6 can tango with this "super car"
Are we still paper-racing here? Power to weight ratio...1/4 mile times? I'd drive all three cars and see which one did it for me. Unlike some people in this thread, I might even take a turn. You know, see what that steering wheel thing can do.2000 XYR said:I'd take the Vette or Viper.marc said:Drivetrain: 3.8-liter, 473-hp, 433-lb-ft twin turbocharged V6; awd, six-speed automatic

All the same price - pick one.
Who said that? I'm saying you should probably judge a car after driving it, instead of straight numbers and 1/4 mile time. Seriuosly, some people here would pick a car that looked like a used refridgerator box as long as it was .1 seconds faster than a comparible car in the 1/4 mile, or had 2 more hp.lVlemphizStylez said:yea because both the Zo6 and the Viper suck at handling....it's American and fast...so it can't turn
Exactly.marc said:When I spend that kind of money, its not about the performance - you can get that level of performance for much less (Lotus anyone?) - its also about the image and the feel of the car.
I saw this Honda (of course) the other day on the highway. It nearly sideswiped some other car. Then I noticed the whole side of the Honda was covered in bondo. Perhaps war wounds from a previous sideswipe adventure? :chuckles:marc said:I might be somewhat hesitant about driving an $80,000 car daily though - not out of worry for my skill, but because I've seen other driver's skill, and I see how people function in parking lots.
I just realized that JDM kids will shell out thousands for the Japense buttons. :chuckles:Beast said:
This display is sweet! :thumbup:
I don't understand how different cars being driven by different drivers w/ different setups isn't scientific? .... :chuckles:That test isn't exactly scientific.
Drive the car yourself.So how the hell do you test cars fairly to satisfy everyone?
I'm sorry, but you're a fcuking idiot. Grow some balls, and enjoy a car that can actually take turns without sending you into a ditch:
No wonder you paid money for a SRT-4 instead of a 240SX or something...
