Could the Mazda RX-8 Return as a Rotary Hybrid?(Sep 25, 2013)bring 6 and 4 rotors back, they didn't go anywhere? first off PPRE has built the first proper 6 rotor recently, Mazda engineers said it wasn't possible. the 4 rotor was never offered in a production car but could be bought from mazda back in the day at a RIDICULOUS price.
Could the Mazda RX-8 Return as a Rotary Hybrid?(Sep 25, 2013)hmm from what I understand they are going forward with the 16x motor which is 1.6L and improved stroke for torque. NA 300hp along with sky active design incorporated. 2016 is apparently the date for a new rotary powered car.
Mazda Wants to Expand Lineup After Recent Successes(Sep 14, 2013)16x will be the motor powering the new rx7(9) around 300hp NA is the assumption. the motor is 1.6L with a bit of a longer stroke. Engine wise rx8 was the most powerful NA rotary the FD was faster only due to being FI
Porsche 918 Spyder Smashes Nurburgring Record(Sep 11, 2013)p1 has to shave 7 seconds from unofficial time to match this. that is a LOT in the racing world. My prediction is ferrari will beat this SLIGHTLY (it's areo is god tier) and P1 will be a sec behind it.
That Subaru BRZ STI Teaser Was a Load of Crap(Aug 06, 2013)and that isn't a fair comparison because an m3 new is around 60-80k when and frs new is only 27k and been given time for development. its like ridiculing a guy for sucking at bball when it's his first time playing it
That Subaru BRZ STI Teaser Was a Load of Crap(Aug 06, 2013)@troy
I will admit I believe it's a bit overpriced. but some cars in it's price range aren't a cut and dry comparison. for example rwd coupe vs awd sedan or fwd hatchback. those are 3 different driving characteristics. straight price vs numbers yes its beat and beat bad but if that's all we should look at then everyone should just have an nb miata with a ls1 swap. obviously that's not the case
That Subaru BRZ STI Teaser Was a Load of Crap(Aug 06, 2013)its not all one is after but it is a factor that can NOT be disregarded regardless of it being quantifiable or not. look at the miata, no power and the new ones I've seen with a sticker price of 30k, why would someone buy one?
That Subaru BRZ STI Teaser Was a Load of Crap(Aug 06, 2013)take something like the rx8 or s2k and look at ONLY numbers then read track/driving reviews. those previously stated numbers cannot quantify a very important factor in the automotive world and that is "feel" or the cars "personality" which both those cars are highly praised for
That Subaru BRZ STI Teaser Was a Load of Crap(Aug 06, 2013)at the end of the day, are you smiling behind the wheel? If yes then I can give two shits about numbers, it's doing what it was built for, fun. little sheets of paper are not the end all be all of a car. If it takes numbers or strictly winning to enjoy a car then your missing a big part of automotives. In a daily driving world your not racing, "GTI is faster". ok do you have to race one to work? I would assume not so what the hell does it matter (if your happy behind the wheel).
Next Mitsubishi Evo Will be a 500HP Hybrid(Jul 22, 2013)gtr here is a bit over $90k. price is relative to location but none the less one of the cheapest supercars you can get with the zr1. holy hell an evo is 80k there!!?!? they go for 35k in the states
Next Mitsubishi Evo Will be a 500HP Hybrid(Jul 22, 2013)gtr is one of the cheapest supercars you can buy. not surprised with price, everything coming out is in the mid 40k range now. what is truly upsetting is mitsu (and I know subaru is following foot) are no longer rally bred cars, awd is being used for tarmac not dirt snow mudd etc. you won't be able to take this off roading and im sure it will be the same for the new wrx
Next Mazda MX-5 Details Coming to Light(Jul 20, 2013)idk if it will be turbo'd only because the owner of mazda prefers NA and linear power delivery. that would be AWESOME but I think depending on the success of the new mazda 3 motor we will se a variant of that in it
Meet the Sin R1, a Corvette V8-Powered Mystery(Jul 19, 2013)awesome numbers but I do agree with too many ls powered cars. I like variety and differing engine notes, not pick the body style of your vette. Not hating the motor just its over abundances
Corvette Stingray Prepares For Battle in Europe(Jul 17, 2013)I would take the f12 over the vette. its simply more car (Obviously because of a MUCH higher price tag) zo6 will keep up with f12 but it won't beat it, ferrari simply has more motor. 0-100 1.6 seconds faster then z06
CarBuzz's First Ever Reader's Rides: Patrick Schalk(Jul 17, 2013)could give a rats ass about what you have, its the fact your all talk and no show that people get on your case. It's the very fact you have to brag about what you have that is a good indicator that your BSing. idc what you say, this isn't about you anyways. This is about someone's love for automotives and is sharing his baby with us, he is a gearhead like all of us. Show some respect twerp.
Car Mod Atrocities That Will Make You Sick(Jun 06, 2013)Believing your own opinions as fact and try to pass them off as such. That is why everyone gets on your case kid, not because you love the vette, it's because you try and sell your love/opinion of it as proof of its superiority over all else.
Car Mod Atrocities That Will Make You Sick(Jun 06, 2013)Hahahahaha. You went off on a kid who said his friend liked the viper more then the vette. I don't even have to dig into anything else. Your knowledgable of the vette which is good but your obsession for them has become so much you fall victim to..
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 10, 2013)Good job for hen but look at what it is taking to compete with a luxury car. A 2700lb race car to challenge a 4000lb car that your mom could drive on a rainy day. In terms of sheer speed ya the venom has it but nothing else. The veyron is "more car"
SRT Viper Due for a Refresh in 2015(Jan 31, 2013)Viper has had 18 series championships from 2000-2009 this isnt including 24 Rolex, nurb, Daytona class wins and series wins prior to that. They have beat out the corvette squad multiple times. Viper Does match up to the vette and ACR still holds a
Honda Reveals Lineup for Tokyo(Dec 30, 2012)Is that the case for everybody? No, a m5 better fucking be nicer then a entry level accord for what your paying. But there isnt really a define reason that states a entry 3 series is ALWAYS better then a higher model accord. I use higher model
Honda Reveals Lineup for Tokyo(Dec 30, 2012)Club paradise here in las Vegas. They had a 2008 5 series fresh off the lot when it came out, 2 years later they traded it in for a Camry due to everything breaking on the 5 series. To their surprise couldn't be more happy with the quality of Camry
Honda Reveals Lineup for Tokyo(Dec 30, 2012)I facedesked sooo hard........I'm afraid to saying anything due to getting an aneurism reading whatever your reply might be. I'm not even going to bother with the falsehoods,incomplete premises, and broken logic used. Family friend is the owner of
The Racecars of Champions(Dec 16, 2012)Grand am, continental, koni challenge, American le mans, all forms under SCCA and NASA etc. We do have more then just Indy or NASCAR racing here in the states
Japanese Tuning Icons Part 2: Toyota Celica(Dec 13, 2012)@brandon
Haha wow that was a sad attempt. I'm out of your league child don't be swinging at the big dogs. I'll call it whatever I want, still going to do the same thing regardless of the title I choose to assign it.
Japanese Tuning Icons Part 2: Toyota Celica(Dec 12, 2012)It's called a job. You can afford nice things if you bust your ass. Anyone with performance in mind wouldnt put in a touch screen, oversized heavy rims, lambo doors, and a hideous body kit. Even if it had 500hp I would still call it rice
