i think at 6'5 the 350-370z might not be your best car for daily.
LOL @ all the ugly ass ricers.
My engines are in my legs, powering this:
Got some new shots of my Z over the weekend.
Doesn't your cooler get scraped a lot? Seems unavoidable no matter how much you maneuver the steeps. Nice though. Cant beat fat tires in the rear!
Actually if I'm real careful on entrances and exits and cut the wheels right, its alright. I do need to raise it up a bit though. Thanks.
These were my averages (evo 9, 6 speed), stock, pump-to-pump :
Summer : 21 mpg
Winter : 18 mpg
Tuned, mpg usually gets a little better if you behave yourself. Worse when you get on it (essentially, the range spreads out).
Note : That's presuming you don't get 'silly huge' injectors that suck at low flow.
Citroen Saxo VTS 16v
120bhp as standard, mine had +/- 125-130 bhp after mods
0-60 in about 6,5-7 seconds on a good day. Top speed of 235km/h on speedo.
Sounded like a proper rally car, raspy with pops and bangs
Oreca Motorsports Group N, stainless exhaust system
200CPI Race cat
Modded airbox, CAI feature
Yes I actually do.
So, I am in the market for a "New" car. Not brand new, but new to me. I have narrowed it down to a few choices. Let me know what you think.
Right now I am leaning for the LaCrosse.
Charger cause its charger
Yea.... but it's the new-age crap Charger, not the classic balls-to-the-wall Charger.
2006 C6 Corvette
My new ride
The HUD is sweeeeeeeeet
How just some headers, exhaust, cams, and a tune, and you're gonna make some good power
MMMhhhhMMM!!! I love me some Corvettes! Good stuff!
.... two things.
a) what's showing on that HUD makes me glad i don't live anywhere near Texas.
b) I'm more of a fan of the classic Vette's.... like the old Corvette Stingray's and stuff like that, with the big bubble rear fender. The new ones just look too much like someone liked the look of a Lotus, but not the size, and stretched it a bit to get the new Corvette.
I don't see lotus in the vette.
I see an american 599 or California.
The LaCrosse would be a decent choice, not the most stylish but the 3.8 is pretty bulletproof.
The Sebring is a giant POS
I'm sure that's km/h
That better be a stick.
350z=yes, sans sunroof
sunroof-less RX-8s have some room
nm+: no.... i don't think that's any form of kilometers per hour. And it wouldn't surprise me if it's automatic. The majority of Porsche's that are sold are supposedly automatic, just because either people don't know how to drive a car with a manual transmission, or don't want to be bothered with shifting. You know.... that leaves them a bit more open to text while they're driving.
I think that most people buy cars like that with an auto transmission is because the supposedly faster shifts will make them 0.0002s faster around some circuit that they will never go to anyway.
