    This is my first time hearing it. I'm out of town until tomorrow when I go to pick it up. I got this teaser video from the tuner.

    I know it's poorly recorded. :bang:

    I'm excited and I'll have better clips later in the week.

    No you just dont get it, the test wasn't the car, it was a jetpack test, they just forgot to turn the camera around.

    Lol, it was so loud the camera's microphone couldn't actually process it. Pretty funny.

    Warning: friend drops f-bomb in video

    My friend drove it home. Said revving the motor at idle shakes the entire car. Better sound of it now here...

    Can the stock rear end and diff handle that much torque? Just curious, as it was a base model you started with.

    Base comes with Z06 clutch. Should be good to 600 but it'll be on borrowed time. As long as I don't launch hard on slicks or something the rear end should be fine. :)

    here's a more proper video

    My friend and I took turns driving the car around town rowing through the gears. It's terrifying from the passenger seat. One of the runs from that seat my head wacked the back part of the targa roof from the torque hit. :nerd:

    I was supposed to have a rallyx on Sunday, but I broke my strut mount ^ ^

    [​IMG]

    So that was supposed to be the last race of the year, well at least the close one. I'm already having rallyx withdrawls. I'm not even sure what I'm going to do until next year except get the car ready before spring races start.

    Since I have the engine running good, now I just have to work on the 22 year old suspension. The plan is to fit used WRX/STI struts by welding new top mounts in. I also need new engine mounts, bushings all around, move radiator and battery to the rear, and racing seat. I'm also going to convert my car into truck, but keeping the C pillars for support.

    My old citroen c4 got changed into a bit newer Honda CR-Z. God I love the car. It does 0-100km/h in around 8s when on sport mode which is cool not the fastest but well hopefully they will bring on cr-z mugen at somepoint or something else :D And it eats only 5l/100km when driving good. Actually I drove a trip with 4.7l/10 which is beyond awesome.

    The chassis is sporty as one would expect from a small sports coupe. Feels tight. Just said to myself that never again will I buy something which is not as fun to drive.

    Hear, hear.

    I bought a Seat Ibiza 1.4 Toca a few weeks back as it's newer and has all the gadgets I wanted. I thought it can't be too different too my 1.9 TDi Leon, which is old and heavy but how wrong I was. While the Ibiza is nice, it's new, got all the gadge, my word it's slow compared to the Leon. It isn't all that different on paper but it's noticeable when driving. Maybe it's the torque and pull that the diesel has? I dunno but long story short, my next one will be beefier and as Ryu5uzaku said, more fun.

    Subaru put these on some of their factory race cars. It won't do that.
