Sleepers Turbo Regal Dyno Yo FireHippie. This is my buddy Nick Sho. he had a Taurus SHO like mine that he used to street race with. Then he got a regal GS, went turbo, and yeeeeeah. 500 ponies. Dude's a bit of a douche but holy fuck his car is fast.
User avatar #10840 to #10837 - firehippie (11 hours ago) [-]
That's your friend? Holy shit. I've seen his videos. Thats one badass car
User avatar #10841 to #10840 - chewythewolftwo ONLINE (11 hours ago) [-]
Yuuuuup, he used to streetrace at my local haunts over the summer. The original "Sleepers" video he made has a few of my friend's cars in it, and soon, I'll be out there hustlin' too lol. In both the Galaxie AND the SHO. And possibly a 302 powered Volvo 240... *cough*
User avatar #10842 to #10841 - firehippie (11 hours ago) [-]
That sleeper video is what got me interested in the supercharged 3800. That's why I bought the park avenue ultra. I haven't done anything to it yet but I'm hoping to eventually. Shit I wish I could have that much fun as you do.
User avatar #10843 to #10842 - chewythewolftwo ONLINE (11 hours ago) [-]
Hah! I didn't know that. My old man found a Park Avenue Ultra for $3900 that he was looking at for my little sister (lolno) and it made me go look at his car again, haha.
Street races on the pike where we hang out are almost dead now though, cops everywhere and we get kicked out of locations a lot, lol. Mostly because antilag civics and RX7's causing hell, lol.

I post updates on what I do to my Jeep periodically, but I haven't lately because I haven't done much to it lately, because the only things left require taking apart the entire front end, and I don't have the time for it.

Outside of the Honda/JDM culture the EG hatch doesn't seem to be appreciated very much. In my opinion it's one of the best looking 2-door hatches ever made.
User avatar #10838 to #10817 - chewythewolftwo ONLINE (11 hours ago) [-]
Holy fuck agreed.
I want one, or any older early/mid nineties honda coupe, and yeah. I'd want to go huge power, because I'm stupid
#10853 to #10838 - apurpleliger (2 hours ago) [-]
The EG hatch is the only one I really want to have. Preludes can be cool, but FWD is only really acceptable to me if it's a hatch. Coupes and sedans waste the added potential space a FWD setup provides.

Bugatti Veyron.
User avatar #10812 to #10809 - jewishcommunazi (01/23/2015) [-]
I thought people liked this one too. Let alone the fact that it has about 1000 hp and can go over 400 km/h.

#10816 to #10812 - apurpleliger (01/23/2015) [-]
I don't like that it's made to go super fast but not anything else. The Koenigseggeggisg that competes with it is much more impressive from a performance standpoint in my opinion, both it and the Hennessey Venom, really.
#10844 to #10816 - sylaz (7 hours ago) [-]
Dafuq you on about. The Veyron is a much more impressive piece of kit then both the Koenigsegg and Venom GT.
Just look at the engine which is a Quad turbo W16, compared to the V8s in the Venom and Koenigsegg.. Or the interior which has great seats for touring, hell it even decent trunk for such a car. Also just for the record im not stating that the Koenigsegg and Venom GT arn't impressive, cause they sure as hell are.
#10851 to #10844 - apurpleliger (2 hours ago) [-]
From a comfort standpoint, the Veyron outclasses the other two, no doubt about it. But the only thing it has going for it performance wise is speed, which is what I was talking about, and even then it's numbers aren't that great.

The Veyron SS only holds 1.00 g on the skidpad, while the Koenigsegg Agera R holds 1.6 g and the 1:one holds 2.00 g, double what the best Veyron can do.

The normal Veyron pushes 1000hp out of that 8.0L W16 that weighs approximately 400kg, or 1200hp out of the SS which has approximately the same engine weight. Top speed of 270mph.
The Agera R pushes the same hp out of a 5.0L V8 that weighs only 200kg. Top speed around 270mph.
The Venom GT pushes 1250hp out of a 7.0L V8. I can't find the weight of this engine. Top speed 266mph.

The Veyron has a unique engine setup, but Koenigsegg and Hennessey are able to get similar or better power and speed out of less complex, smaller, and lighter engines. So to that extent the Veyron is not very impressive from a performance standpoint, in my opinion.

I was just about to complain on /cars/ that i havent spotted anything better than a Lexus NX this year.
But i figured i would go to the supermarket first.
In that 10 minute bikeride i spotted a CLS V8 compressor, a Masserati GranTurismo and topped that off with a Jaguar from the 80's. dont know the type or year but it looked like pic

Any BRZ or FRS owners in here? In about a year I'll have 20k to play with and I'm considering one. Thoughts? Opinions?
#10818 to #10782 - apurpleliger (01/23/2015) [-]
They're great cars from what I've read, but definitely look into testing out the performance capabilities because a lot of people seem to find it's power a little lacking
#10797 to #10782 - anonymous (01/23/2015) [-]
Since it's extremely popular it is almost guaranteed to get an even bigger aftermarket in the near future so if you plan to modify your car this one definitely has a lot of options.
Unfortunately I've never driven one so I can't provide any info on how it drives but I checked one out that was standing at a Toyota dealers room and the seating position is very nice even if you're on the taller side (I'm 6ft 4" / 194cm)
Maybe just some general advice to buying a car is to do the math beforehand. Calculate if you can pay taxes/insurance/gas/whatever else you need out of your own pocket and if you'll be able to afford repairs if something breaks Check with FRS/BRZ/GT86 forums to find out what are known weak spots
But no matter what car you end up choosing have fun.

BMW 540i, MazdaSpeed 6,Lexus LS430. Just to name a few

The Lexus's are reliable as fuck, same goes for the Phaeton and MazdaSpeed6.
The rest will be expensive on maintance, but if you willing to learn to do stuff yourself. Then they are fairly cheap

User avatar #10801 to #10775 - nazo (01/23/2015) [-]
I have a GT Force Pro

its like the G27 but without a clutch and the gear shifter is rally like and not in H, pretty good if you dont want to spend too much money

User avatar #10778 to #10777 - hourlyb (01/23/2015) [-]
Yeah. I've heard the wheel is good, but the h-shifter is weak.
I'm probably gonna buy a G27 and get a thrustmaster H-shifter.

I'm starting to look into getting my first car, do any of you have any experience with subaru impreza's?
User avatar #10765 to #10714 - hourlyb (01/22/2015) [-]
My mom bought a Subaru Legacy in 1997. It lasted 17 years.
They are tanks, trust me. Only thing that broke on it was the clutch, and that was after 140K miles of hard work. pulling a camper for about 20K of that
User avatar #10739 to #10714 - highkey (01/22/2015) [-]
Awesome. Basically what apurpleliger said.
If you have 10k, you should get a hawkeye or bugeye wrx depending on your budget and such.
If you're not looking for a fun fast car and looking into something more practical, an outback is a nice car.
#10727 to #10714 - apurpleliger (01/22/2015) [-]
Subaru in general is a terrific brand as far as quality goes. A normal Impreza that isn't a WRX is going to possibly be a little slow depending on your definition of slow and what year you get, but it's still going to be a great first car as it is capable, controllable, and fast enough to get you places. The only real issue with them is that, being AWD, they consume more gas than an equivalent FWD or RWD would. With the WRX you're looking at a huge insurance premium, though, as they tend to be driven by younger drivers who go fast and crash a lot.

If you can find a decent one in your price range I'd say definitely look into it.
#10716 to #10714 - Rei ONLINE (01/21/2015) [-]

I gotta say, I aint surprise, those things have a lot of litre for a small engine, I mean pop the hood on one, it's got parts just overwhelming it, but I heard 2 to current gen have been better on fuel.

I think Mitsubishi and Subaru agreed that for their lan-evo and sti model to only reach up to 280 bhp as well. which they both did withing there 2nd gen.

What exactly causes that? Also do you know if it handles well in the snow?
User avatar #10729 to #10722 - jorgethemaster ONLINE (01/22/2015) [-]
All Subies kick snows ass.
User avatar #10723 to #10722 - freakyorange (01/22/2015) [-]
Usually the cause is the driver overestimating what it can do with no real experience. They're very capable cars, but only in the hands of a pro. Imprezas do handle well in the snow. They're built as consumer-grade rally cars.

I'm looking for a used car (around $5k) thats a little sporty but reliable and something I can work on and customize myself, any suggestions?
User avatar #10725 to #10724 - freakyorange (01/22/2015) [-]
RX8. I say this assuming you have the money to do the work you want. RX8s can be really fun but also really expensive, depending on what you do, however, they're not good in snow because they're RWD.

It's hard to find anything FWD or 4WD that is sporty for under $5k.
User avatar #10726 to #10725 - bananaforlife (01/22/2015) [-]
Do you have any recommendations for a good start out car, if we are to ignore the previous criteria? Something cheap but dependable that would handle well in winter? It doesn't necessarily have to look sporty, I've just always been a fan of cars and would like something that looks alright.
User avatar #10728 to #10726 - freakyorange (01/22/2015) [-]
I'd say a late 90s to early 2000s honda. They run forever and are pretty dependable. If you don't like that, I would say a ford focus (the newer the better, the old ones are pretty ugly), if you're not worried about gas mileage, I would say a 90s-early 2000s jeep wrangler or cherokee. jeeps can be difficult to work on if they're old, because jeep has this bad tendency to over-tighten everything, making them hard to work on, but if you wouldn't be modifying it, it wouldn't be an issue. I would recommend the cherokee over the wrangler, but that's my personal taste.

If you want fuel economy, I would say basically any common midrange sedan. There's no perfect car because everyone has their own taste.
