I probably wouldn’t hesitate to get one over the CTR or GTI...
That's what a Faraday bag is for. I keep my keys in them at all times so it would be impossible to get the signal.
I completely disagree. Classic Mustangs were available with a straight 6 so it is a prefect and fitting swap. I think that constant gnashing of teeth and hate over the RB swap is plain silly
I’ll still never forgive them for putting an RB26 in a classic mustang.
My favourite F&F is Tokyo Drift and I’ve maintained that line since its release.
It’s weird to see people start to say this because NOBODY liked it when it came out. I agree though Tokyo Drift is the best FF, and I honestly think it’s just a good movie in general. A Tokyo Drift sequel would be a good ‘return to roots’ for the FF franchise if they ever went that route.
The only decent F&F is Tokyo Drift. And even that’s being generous.
Exactly! Super car vs muscle car. I love them both, and both are impressive
And that’s why the F1 is valued at 20+ MILLION dollars, and the GT500 will be like $80k. I’m not sure how much the F1 was when it was new, but I’m sure it’s over 1 million in today’s money - getting million dollar car performance from a relatively affordable mustang is pretty cool!
And one was a hyper car the other is a suped up pony car.
I think it’s a pretty cool and telling metric. Maybe it’s just me, but when you take into account that it’s being done sharing a base platform with models that retail for under $30k it’s impressive (before you respond, I obviously recognize that there are huge differences between a GT500 and it’s 4 cylinder…
I want to see a test thats 60mph-____ in 3 seconds. As in, 3 seconds of wide open throttle, what speed will you be traveling.
0-100-0 is a better metric to use than 0-60 or even 1/4 mile. It is 2 (TWO) metrics in one!
0 - 100 - 0 is a way better test than 0-60. No reason to hate on it just because it’s not common....if only more people cared about braking as much as they do accelerating.
Ah, so in other words it’s a typical VAG product, is it? Engineering defects, high maintenance requirements, pricey up front and the service/support/warranty employees will lie to you and treat you like an idiot who is to blame for everything because you didn’t drive their miracle of German engineering in an approved…
You’ve just put a damper on my ‘maybe one day’ scenario in which I get an R8 as they are rather reasonably priced and don’t appear to be moving much lower. Guess I’ll have to swap that thought with C8 instead.
different color covering the road surface in alpine France, causing havoc just the same.
Many modern turbochargers operate at pressure ratios very close to 1:1, unlike older units that operated at 2:1 or even 3:1 (3x the exhaust pressure as intake pressure). At 1:1 ratios, the engine doesn’t have to “work” to push the exhaust out any harder than a n/a engine because the boost pressure is “pushing” it out…
