All-New Hyundai Genesis Coming in 2013(Mar 21, 2012)@devin
Those that complain about a badge are usually young and uneducated of automotives. It's the same mentality of if it has a BMW badge on it it's made
2013 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Revealed Ahead of New York Debut(Mar 20, 2012)The targeted market is rarely going to go over 130mph so why design you motor to do another 80-90mph that will never be used/achieved? And there is much more to performance then just 0-60. This will pull like no other at almost any rpm/speed your at
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 19, 2012)@luke
Thats a load of BS. Did you ever talk to Jeff(mazdamanic and works with BHR) and Kevin are your guys to go to for tuning. And turblown, Mazdatrix, emreil racing would beg to differ with your statement. Great job with 20b though, did you use a..
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 19, 2012)@kevin
They have the msp running on hydrogen, I can promise you Mazda has already thought of and tested whatever it is your thinking lol
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 18, 2012)But just a quick comparison. Stock FD 250hp. A stock 8 is 220hp, now a stock 8 except with a turblown turbo set up with proper tune (to match FI vs FI) and your at over 300hp and under 11lbs of boost.
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 18, 2012)That's why the MSP is side ported as well. In terms of tech, efficiency, powerband and overall motor power, the 8 is leaps and bounds from the 7(along with a lot of other tech talk I'll save you guys from lol) it's emission standards that killed what
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 18, 2012)The 8 is the most powerful NA rotary. the FD is nothing without its turbos along with the seq Ts being full trouble to deal with. We have one thing to blame for the rx8s lack of power to the FD, very tight emissions not giving Mazda much to work with
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 17, 2012)Love the fds3 and with a few tweaks it can run with the vette no problem. But playboy? Wouldnt really take them as credible auto reviewers lol
Unearthed: 1984 Mazda RX-7(Mar 17, 2012)Sigh I'm tired of debating with people who have no knowledge of the wankel and only know what their friends tell them and the friend complaining usually doesn't understand proper care in the first place.
An American Nurburgring in Nevada?(Mar 14, 2012)Earlier stated. IMHO more cons then pros UNLESS they do their own spin to it or open it up to National/regional racing with SCCA, NASA, Etc. I would have a blast doing a ITR or EP race with the rx8 around it along with all the formulas going around
An American Nurburgring in Nevada?(Mar 14, 2012)@aaron
What part? I'm in southern highlands, by southpoint.
Ya it would take business away from the original as well. My driver side is hell ya but then realization sets in that it's only a test track and can strip business away from the original as
An American Nurburgring in Nevada?(Mar 14, 2012)The weather along can make or break the experience along with how accurate they replicate it (money is sole factor in this). And its only a test track, no racing :( idk if we are aloud to take our cars out and do laps either
An American Nurburgring in Nevada?(Mar 14, 2012)I hope it's built in northern Nevada (much colder) or at least close to it or else engine failures left and right due to heat. Disappoint we can't come up with our own track, we have to replicate it and even that is a problem, there's over 1,000ft in
Unearthed: 1994 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R(Mar 10, 2012)And what evidence do you have to prove its more reliable then an LS? Do keep in mind the RB is quite weak without its turbo(s) whereas the ls isn't. Have to compare NA to NA and FI to FI to remain relevant.
Unearthed: 1994 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R(Mar 10, 2012)Personally I like to keep the motor make with make. Rotary with Mazda, RB and VQ with Nissan, ls with chevy etc Unless your building a specific race car then whatever regulations allow. Beautiful motor by the way sadly my hands wouldn't fit anywhere
Corvette Evolution, Part 6: C5 - The Corvette that Came from Space(Mar 06, 2012)For 24 straight hours, 1960 finished 8th in the french classic, etc so yes back then with only SCRAPING the surface of its history it's obvious to see its always been able to "turn" and keep up/beat the euros. Btw the C5-R won every single race in 04
Corvette Evolution, Part 6: C5 - The Corvette that Came from Space(Mar 06, 2012)Somebody doesn't know what they are talking about, deep breath and here we go
For starters it won the grand am champ in 75,78,79, and 81. The GTP claimed 7 poles in the IMSA camel GT in 1990 it set the most reliable endurance motor maintaining 176mph
Corvette Evolution, Part 6: C5 - The Corvette that Came from Space(Mar 06, 2012)Brady's ignorance is showing, you might want to put your flame suit on. And really complaining about how many of these there are? History of the vette we are currently on the c6 must mean there will be at least 6 of these! Was anyone complaining on..
Only in the Middle East Does a $260K Nissan GT-R Make Sense(Feb 29, 2012)Haha ok what constitutes as "blows"? And please provide evidence/links. I doubt you have even looked at a Dyno let alone the SAE documents for the GTR. Oh and do remember your definition has to be objective and unarguable for it to be valid
Only in the Middle East Does a $260K Nissan GT-R Make Sense(Feb 29, 2012)Love how those that are hating only have subjective material or what they have heard from a friend, no factual evidence at all of why it's a horrible car.
You dont like it I respect that but don't try to pass your opinion as fact.
Only in the Middle East Does a $260K Nissan GT-R Make Sense(Feb 29, 2012)@Fordfan
You can continue hating all you want The GTR is going to continue kicking many cars asses winning races and awards at half the price. Say what you want, facts and numbers don't lie. One day you will get over yourself :)
What Lurks in Bugatti’s Crystal Ball?(Feb 26, 2012)Personally I find them hideous in looks. Sure you can make anything faster with money but it's the fact you still have a high luxury interior and so easy to drive your grandma could drive it (yes it's a top gear reference lol)
Video: Viper ACR-X Laps the Nurburgring in 7:03(Feb 23, 2012)Ya Zonda R Isn't from this planet but hot damn a little over 20 seconds from the fastest time!? Way to go viper, always wonder what a driver like vettel would do in this and see if he(or someone like him) can squeeze out another second or so
Blow Mind Video: 40+ Nissan GTRs Revving(Feb 21, 2012)@pat
Out off all the rotaries I've rebuilt, turbo kits ive helped install, etc I DO NOT touch wiring! Haha I don't even touch audio with friends cars or mine for that matter lol
Video: 2012 BMW M5 and 2012 Nissan GT-R Reviewed in the Rain(Feb 17, 2012)Car not just cut the driver out. It all is about feel and really and hard to explain, I guess the best way to state it is with the 458 you really dont know about the comps correcting your mistakes but with the GTR you do. Very vague I know lol
Video: 2012 BMW M5 and 2012 Nissan GT-R Reviewed in the Rain(Feb 17, 2012)@pablo
From my experience of driving the cars, (only done 4 laps in 458) with the GTR it feels like the comps are aiding the car and on at all times, it's not subtle with the systems. The 458 feel like the aids are there to help you to control the..
Video: 2012 BMW M5 and 2012 Nissan GT-R Reviewed in the Rain(Feb 16, 2012)Driving is your goal then why in the world are you throwing a fit about it not doing anything after 60mph (which obviously it does) or its power band? It's not like If it's good on a track it becomes horrible on the street, it's still the same car
Video: 2012 BMW M5 and 2012 Nissan GT-R Reviewed in the Rain(Feb 16, 2012)That really doesn't make any sense. Your complaining about its performance, I provided counter points. You accuse me not driving one, which I have. You buy a performance car for its PERFORMANCE! Where do you think sports cars are tested? If daily..
Video: 2012 BMW M5 and 2012 Nissan GT-R Reviewed in the Rain(Feb 16, 2012)20 awards from 2007 to present. A half a second slower then a gallardo do to rev limiter at isle of man yet faster then the r8, faster then a 911, M3, and r8 at rockingram(spelt the track wrong) and a second faster then an M3 and 911 at autodome..
