      So it's easier to impress you with more engine than engineering. Got it.

      Hmmmmm. Come to think of it, I don't know if I've ever seen you disagree with someone without being condescending.

      Sure, but how reliable* is it like that? It's tough to do consistent 10 second runs with a 20 lb. magnesium box of an engine case! Of course, if you want a Pauter big block or some-such that would...

      They shouldn't tone it down one bit, but they will. :(

      It's sad that they likely don't have the cojones to build one that looks like this, as I think that would really make a splash without being...

      Hmmm. I love the RCZ coupe. Did they ever produce it? Something like that would be absolutely amazing. What a gorgeous car!

      Hey, being grown up is fine! it's losing childlike enthusiasm that's a bummer. I've been able to retain a lot of mine, even though I'm pushing 50! :) it's the childish parts we all need to lose. ...

      Bader racing in Germany. That's who you're looking for.
    7. You can do as you wish, but the problem doesn't...

      You can do as you wish, but the problem doesn't seem to be one of "geometry" as much as the interface between flexible and non-flexible parts. There's a highly stressed area where the two meet and if...

      That is a huge issue for many modern cars. It's not like 25 years ago when my brother and I built a new custom main harness for my '62 Beetle... In the lesser part of an afternoon. :laugh:

      Not...

      Gotcha. Yeah, I knew you didn't need the money, but I could see where it would be fun to tinker, learn, research and spend other people's money, too. :)

      The limo isn't a comprehensive project...

      I wouldn't think so, as the main points are assembly line ease/cost, reliability (no gasket to fail) and retaining as much of that heat as practical/possible to cram it into the turbo. I would think...

      If by "well" you mean not filling the odd niche that is the modern coupe SUV thing, then yeah. Just a few years ago (well, to we older folks, anyway) Porsche just made a handful of sports cars and...

      True, but if he's like me, problem solving is fun! :beer:
    13. Nice! I like things more unusual, myself. I do...

      Nice! I like things more unusual, myself. I do find it kind of funny that you're detailing the engine compartment and it's going to hit the track later, but I can imagine myself doing the exact same...
    14. In how much time? Look for cars that are...

      In how much time? Look for cars that are compelling to buy, but are unobtainable to a lot of their target market. If 10 year olds are lusting after the FRS, 20 years from now that could be one. There...

      That would be an amazing gig. How quickly would you learn the right way to do this kind of thing working for a guy that skilled? :) :thumbup:




      Sounds good! Let's see... The engine is coming...

      there's no place I've ever seen or even heard of for more comprehensive oil and oil-related information. It was my go-to research site for figuring out what oil to run in my old cars, as modern oil...

      Update your thinking. If a Fram HP1 fits on a car I run hard or want to keep forever, I'd probably run that, though since they're now $14.00 from Summit, not everyone will use (or can justify) using...

      Those wheels! :eek:

      I love something that out-of-the-ordinary. Hmmmmm. Now I wonder if there's something like that in the "wide 5" pattern... :thumbup:
    19. Because...? Why stick with a brand of anything...

      Because...?

      Why stick with a brand of anything that is questionable and available from multiple sources, especially if it could lead to catastrophic failure? Research it from several sources and...

      Definitely the first one, that is badass. :thumbup: To me the car doesn't lent itself to a more rounded top, the proportions are off and the photoshop pic puts the bottom of the windshield in an...
