The stickers on the tires remind me of the people who would buy silver spray paint and paint their tires to appear as though their wheels where larger. Yah, I have seen this more than a few times. Stories of a parts store employee.
Front engine RWD
NA Toyota I4 with 240hp - maybe with a cool feature like ITBs
Under 2800 lbs
Stripped out base model for enthusiasts - like the 2013 JDM only RC version
Traction control button that turns it all the way off
I had a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder when I was 20 for a winter beater. I bought it for $500. I used to go snow sliding with it pretty often. The locking 4wd system actually made it pretty easy. We had just got 12-16 inches of fresh snow so I picked up my friend and hit the parking lots. A few minutes into it I spotted a…
The civic looks SO MUCH BETTER with smaller diameter wheels. Still hilariously ugly though.
Cars flip way to easily in the movies. It seems like every time a car gets a little sideways it rolls. (Cough cough Casino Royal cough). That Aston rolled on wet pavement!!! It is sad to admit but because of this action in the movies, a large majority of people think that cars flip super easily.
When I was 17, I decided to flag an illegal street race between two friends. I parked my car behind the two race cars on the shoulder. No sooner than I got out of my car, red and blue lights turned on behind me. My two “friends” took off and I was stranded outside my car with nothing but a dumb look on my face. The…
NJMP Lighting configuration is always worth a giggle. lol. [img]
That’s a shame. I own a 2008 and its a lot of fun to drive. I can’t be the only one to think that BC Gridlife is starting a time attack SpecFit class.
Mini trucks. More specifically my D21. I never cared for them until I bought one.
Nissan d21 FTW. I currently own one as a 3-season daily driver. Its perfect for the car guy that needs a truck.
Oh yes, just what I wanted. Why would I ever need Tsukuba, Suzuka or a 2nd gen RX7 when I can race a semi!?
Funny how GM will says “This is a car-like truck because people don’t need all the space in a truck.” And then in the same breath won’t give us a truck-like car “because it won’t sell well.” Example: Holden UTE
Came here to post something similar. Great article
Hard body lego wheels are one of my favorites
Expensive? I bought a 2001 Tundra sr5 V8 with 98,000 miles and a brand new frame for $1800. All I have done is replace the ball joints, brakes and starter. The outside it rusty and the exhaust is a little loud but who cares. Great truck.
You are 100% correct. I own a FRS and just with a brake pad/rotor upgrade I have gotten rid of most brake fade around a track notorious for brake fade. However, for a serious track day car with a serious driver, some sort of upgraded braking will be needed on this platform. I am not saying the calipers on this…
If you are a decent driver and you track the car at all you will.
lol...thats my favorite part of this car aside from the seats.
Lame. You can modify a frs/brz to be better than that one for far less. Just a full exhaust and tune will get you +20hp ish. The car is very capable of being what everyone wants. And if you modify it yourself you don’t have to live with that awful rear bumper and carbon fiber hood that is probably heavier than the…
Track day gift certificate. NASA pro racing has them. Thats what I tell everyone to get me when they tell me I am too hard to buy for.
