Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)It'll need to shed 500lbs to feel spiritedly with a turbo 4. The new chassis is 300lbs lighter than the current according to leaked info. If the turbo 4 is about 100lbs lighter than the v6 (doubtful) then it'll come close. 275hp t4, 350hp 6 probably.
Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)Shelby, sounds like your bro has a beastly bullet, my 03 cobra has a few extensive mods and makes 650whp on 5-6psi, and over a k on 24psi. These cars have so much potential and love boost, so easy to get awesome drivability and huge power.
Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)And ss/ws6's were priced and competed with cobras which even the 01 cobras ran 13.3's@106
The 2009 bullets ran 13.3@106 and the Shelby gt's ran 13.3's@107
Mickey thompson Drag radials alone put 2007 gt500's into the 12.20's.
Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)The 2010 gt500's ran 12.40's@117
2011's gt500's ran 12.30's@119
2013's run 11.65@125-127
Even the gt's from 2005 ran 13.5's@103 which was very close to the ss's/ws6's (not z28's) of 2000 which ran a best of 13.3@107
Again cobras ran 12.7's@112
Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)Original corvettes in 53 had a straight six blue-arrow? Blue something anyways.
Regardless, the 05 gto's ran 13.3's@107, a well driven mach1 was right there at 13.2@106, better hook, less top end.
03 cobras ran 12.8's@112
07 gt500's ran 12.8's@114
Turbo Four for Next Camaro(Dec 12, 2012)Eh, t4 is fine for base models, v8's will always stay in the top models
The corvette nearly failed in 53, ford put a v8 in the tbird in 55, then Chevy put a v8 in the vette in 57 and never looked back. Don't quote me there but I remember reading so.
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 10, 2012)persons car and a status symbol. If I was loaded-like 50 mil, if buy one in a heartbeat but not for its performance. For $1,750,000 you can make 10 8 second cars out of lambo's, f430's, 911 turbos etc.
The veyron is awesome but in now way the best.
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 10, 2012)2800lbs. If the ssc was engineered awd it would still probably only be 3100lbs. The veyron is simply far to heavy. With 1000hp, it traps 142mph. A stock lp700 traps 135 with 700hp. Weak. Most 850whp american muscle cars trap 150+.
Veyron is a rich
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 10, 2012)Lloyd's just cranky and off his rocker.
The suspension geometry on the ssc would make his brain hurt, I believe it's transverse a arms at all for corners. That is race car tech.
The veyron would be shit if it wasn't awd. It's 4,500lbs! Ssc is
Fiat Reveals Panda Monster Truck(Dec 10, 2012)If I seemed creepy sorry, I was just asking. I know a couple girls with sick rides like m3's, a 740whp srt8 jeep, and a 10" lifted f350 with 40"s and tons of engine mods for 600whp and 1500wtq.
My bad though, I could see that being an off question.
Fiat Reveals Panda Monster Truck(Dec 10, 2012)Ya I didn't mean anything creepy, I was just saying its badass if she's a chick with a sick truck.
I was half expecting to come back and see it was a guy with his gf's pic as a profile pic. Plenty of guys do that to show off their gf's.
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)4 other ssc's exist, not I these colors but I mean show a few pics of those and one of this sketch, a real world pic is more flattering to this car. Natural sunlight helps its angles greatly.
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)Thanks for the props guys and sorry about the size of my posts, I'll try and trim em up without omitting the facts.
I like the ls mills, when done properly, they make awesome power but its very important to get everything perfect Great power:weight
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)For comparison, al papito racing makes 2200hp from a stock crank 5.4 modular motor that even lined so it only makes 323 ci instead of the 331 it had stock. Very impressive tech in the ford modulars.
So quick answer, no not everything fast is LS
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)Packaging size too, the ls is superior as its ohv heads are tiny and make te motor easy to fit anywhere.
But if your timing is 1-2 degrees off for a few passes....carnage is looming
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)Not hating though, when done especially well, there's nothing like having 12-1500hp from a simple 475lbs wet weight motor. A similar modular with dohc will last longer/be easier to tune but will weigh north of 660Lbs wet.
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)One in block cam, 16 valves, and big boost mean aggressive cam profile, very exact cam/valve/piston measurements, and of course a tune must be perfect.
Every motortrend comparo with high tt vettes and tt ford gt's kinda proves this
SSC Builds the Last Ultimate Aero(Dec 09, 2012)They'd have more reliability with a built 5.4 modular vs the mill they use but they'd also add weight.
The ls is great in na and light boost boost settings but its temper mental at higher boost setting because its hard to perfect the tune
Fiat Reveals Panda Monster Truck(Dec 09, 2012)This is a proper panda. It's gallons per pound per mile ratio is exactly aligned with its turning radius; that is to say both are huge numbers and should be.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)I've heard of a Switzer catching fire on a forum but its likely not even switzer's fault. Anyways, needless to say the car is incredibly clean.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)Maybe when I'm 30 I'll like a super clean look more than a modernized flash bomb. Hope so anyways, it'll be awkward if I don't haha
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)Properly clean. I'm still so young though that I halfway wish it had some crazy side to it like the whole left having black/red/white flag or something. I like when super cars have ridiculous vinyl like sticker bomb, camo, etc.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)Gtr's are sick. My buddy just snow camo'd his at our other buddy's vinyl shop. Wing delete, black factory 7 spokes, green calipers and an ecutech with full exhaust.... It's pretty damn well ridiculous as fuq
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)finite and understandable. " after 12 tearsdowns, the weakest components are these rocker arms that always show premature wear, let's develop a better set..."
Just a simple example.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)If you're going to pay say $750,000 in taxes ver a season, or can show say $750,000 in labor and maintenance (put crew) as an expense, your much better off doing so. It also bumps up your odds of winning or finishing races plus data logging is more
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)and maintenance. If you can also limit damages and breakage why not? It's not like a NASCAR v8 can't go 3-4,000 miles of 8500rpm abuse, it's just that statistically/fiscally/realistically, it's much smarter to rebuild it after each race.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)Even if the engine tests perfectly fine, it's best to do a full tear down after high rpm racing like NASCAR/Indy because too much is on the line winnings wise to just be lazy. They have either high taxes on winnings or an easy tax write off as labor
SRT Viper Gets its Own Music Video(Dec 08, 2012)That's a a proper viper, the gen 3 wasn't un-agressive but I think at this angle the gen 3 almost looked like a Sebring convertible with huge tires
SRT Viper Gets its Own Music Video(Dec 08, 2012)The headlights are growing on me, I hope in a refresh that the revert to a horizontal design like the gen 2's... Sooooooo sexy. These aren't bad by any means but imagining the gen 2 lights with proper modern internals, hid's and the like... Awesome
SRT Viper Gets its Own Music Video(Dec 08, 2012)These cars are awesome. The videography was good, I was hoping for more though but the cars really do enough just being on camera.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)These guys build a quality build, very good value in the turn key tuner segment.
This mill will last a great while, easily 25,000 miles with a more so aggressive driver. All new internals and dohc tuning advantages.
Switzer's Thousand-HP GT-R for Sale(Dec 08, 2012)Somebody said nothing on the road will touch this and another person said no manual can beat this. Obviously both statements are false. Carry on.
(There are 8 second rwd stick shifted cars in this world, deal with it.)
This gtr is sick as fuck FYI
Audi Unleashes New RS6 Avant(Dec 05, 2012)Probably not all that down on torque either considering direct injunction and variable cam timing. I bet it isn't even that laggy at all considering Audi gets full boost in most turbo applications by about 2,000 rpms these days.
Audi Unleashes New RS6 Avant(Dec 05, 2012)Gotta love tt v8's. 560hp, 24mpg in a wagon with awd, no prob.
I love when people are uninformed and act like v8's are sacredly sworn to be na or sc'd, while anything else can be turbo.
I think a 4.0 tt v8 is awesome and easier than the tt v10.
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)Sideburns aren't the sexiest thing, she'd look great without them and at more of a forward facing pic vs oddly sideways and squished against that
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)Downward lighting and an odd angle aren't working here. She's a pretty girl but the photographer made an odd call, I'm guessing she kinda new the pics were at odd angles but was too shy to say "buddy get it right, these angles are bad"
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)I've seen small girls that are 0's and 2's that are like 4'10 with some curves but I mean a girls that's like 5'2-5'6 isn't usually very curvy if she's a 0, they don't look like prepubescent boys but I mean girls are nicely curvy around size 4-6+
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)Haha, ya I'm definitely a fan of this girl. Usually Asian women don't pull my heart onto my sleeve but she's incredible.
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)Shit, that was dark. She reminds me of a girl I knew who killed herself, my bad for that dark tone, can't delete a post or I would. Sorry guys.
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)She's an 11/10. Her eyes...I love when a girls eyes have that promiscuous, fun seeking/ can you handle this/rally this look. Her body is so sexy and her face is beautiful.
Easily one of the top 10 hottest Asian women I've ever seen.
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)The few*
This model is a beautiful girl. The skinny thing gets at me cause some girls only eat 2-300 calories a day to keep that look and it's messy/sad how some girls commit suicide over this stuff. It's sad when it happens to girls you know.
Girls of Thailand Motor Expo(Dec 04, 2012)The fee models I know looked hotter to me before they went for the industry standard look and lost 10-20lbs to be skinny. I'm not saying a girl should be huge, but I'll take a girl that's a size 4-6 vs a girl that's a size 0-2 with no hips or curves.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta by Oakley Design(Dec 04, 2012)I like how at least in this pic all the blacks match, It takes away from a clean look when the blacks are slightly different shades of really dark gray that don't all match, like tint being lighter than moldings etc.
This is properly clean, 10/10
Cars That Attract Women: Nissan Leaf(Dec 04, 2012)I could be wrong but I just never hear people say they're attracted to a car. I hear people say its a sexy car or beautiful classic but I don't hear "this attracts me.." You hear like "damn that thing is so sexy"
dont hear "I'm attracted to bowling"
Cars That Attract Women: Nissan Leaf(Dec 04, 2012)The wording of the series is just poor. Ladies top picks or Cars women like or something like else would have made much more sense.
Women can like things without it being a sexual thing. It's not like guys go around saying "I'm attracted to beer"
Bugatti Reveals Unique Veyron Grand Sport Venet(Dec 04, 2012)if their throwing it around, I just don't do so unless its aimed at me. I don't have the time or desire to police people's lives.
On that card, if I had an easy time getting a masters in douche'n, why wouldn't I also have a minor in passive
Bugatti Reveals Unique Veyron Grand Sport Venet(Dec 04, 2012)I don't go around looking to throw around negatives and bad vibes, when people throw em at me I'm just apathetic and bored to it but that doesn't mean I'll just cower off and shy away from the event. I'm not stressed to tear down someone's ego
Bugatti Reveals Unique Veyron Grand Sport Venet(Dec 04, 2012)Dul'e, no worries, didn't grief me the slightest.
Byakka, I mean I coulda been more cordial but its not like I was foaming at the mouth with expletives and corrupted logic. I don't know many other ways to assert apathy while standing ground. :-/
Bugatti Reveals Unique Veyron Grand Sport Venet(Dec 04, 2012)Haha, Dul'e dude you crack me up. I'd take the time to brag and bolster myself after that post but I don't care enough about your opinion to do so. Sorry man, try harder next time because I'd have fun schooling ya if you press my buttons much more.
Mustang to Remain Ford's Top Gun(Dec 03, 2012)mpg as well.
If you get around to reading up on the heat soak complaints on zl1's don't worry about apologizing for saying I was wrong, just look stuff up next time before "correcting" someone. Cheers and good times.
Mustang to Remain Ford's Top Gun(Dec 03, 2012)bolt on mods help them out a lot but its hard to escape the weight. The gt500 feels heavy but the zl1 feels even heavier. When you push both cars hard, the zl1 also drifts more, I think Chevy should have ran a 3.55 or 3.27 rear, it would have helped
Mustang to Remain Ford's Top Gun(Dec 03, 2012)lot more than gt500 guys. The problem with the gt500 is in its brake system. Once addressed they run well. Sticky nt05 nittos make them run like champs as well, very impressive car with tires and brake mods. I like the zl1 a lot, simple cooling and
Mustang to Remain Ford's Top Gun(Dec 03, 2012)Tyler, I have buddy's that track these and I stay up on svtp camaro5, the zl1 gets heats oak easier because its a smaller blower on a bigger motor in a heavier car. It's not theory, research it and you'll see zl1 guys are buying cooling upgrades a
Forza Horizon Gets More Cars(Dec 03, 2012)Surround sound, 1080p and turtle beaches through a dongle... I can't wait.
Now I need to buy a used fanatic wheel off eBay but I don't really care to spend $200 that way.
Forza Horizon Gets More Cars(Dec 03, 2012)My penis is tiny so I'll be buying one of these soon. Nothing works better as a prosthetic penis than an 8,000 lbs h1.
By tiny I mean 10"... around, (American pie might be before most people's time here, it's from a movie)
Bugatti Reveals Unique Veyron Grand Sport Venet(Dec 03, 2012)I mean I love math and physics but I've never considered math equations as art but ya it's something new; I guess you could call it outsider art, the mechanical wonder has been favorably appointed with the very equations of its essence? Works I gues
Forza Horizon Gets More Cars(Dec 03, 2012)Eww, awd Ferrari is like sex with a duffle bag over your dick. No thanks.
If you need that much protection: a telepathic chassis and awd, there's no hope
BMW MH5 S Biturbo by Manhart(Dec 03, 2012)It still has air silencers! There's at least 30hp still remaining in that intake system alone. This is a properly efficient mill considering its making 650hp in this trim with modest boost/small frame turbos. Impressive.
BMW MH5 S Biturbo by Manhart(Dec 03, 2012)I'm trying to imagine if b6 rs4 style ovals would work on this car but I jus can't quite give it the ya. I think it could look properly clean if done right though but it'd need a slightly reworked fascia
BMW MH5 S Biturbo by Manhart(Dec 03, 2012)Love this design language relative to the last body style. The rims are the only thing I'm not 100% sold on but they're still very good.
BMW to Drop V12 from next 7 Series?(Dec 03, 2012)Sneak peak of the 2020, the economy got so bad, and the government so big that everything fell back to 1984 like George orwells book hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahha
I thought that was funny anyways.
