      Background

      This all started in 2010 in Brad Hall's(looking4vr) Garage. One of my friends Chunie had a video that "everyone had to watch cause this check was sooooo hot". Turns out his version of hot and my version of disgusting are the same thing (I do not love large women and large booty). Right then and there he coined the phrase "Zack Martin Don't Love it".

      Come to find out this applied to a lot of other things such as food and cars as well.

      You may have seen some of these around H20i last couple years, this has been a local area joke to the SoMD/DC/NoVA area.





      About me

      Most of you have seen this already via Facebook or the Corrado User Group. However in light of so many people asking for opinions lately I thought I'd start a thread. If you are looking for your typical OEM+ vortex guy opinion, this is the place. Feel free to ask away.

      For those of you who don't know me. This is my car.





      And this pretty much sums up the rest.





      I will be reviewing cars, beer, women, food and anything else people post up.

      Excellent, our first taker.....

      BAGS - I believe a wise man once said "Bags are for ugly chicks, canadian milk, and groceries"

      All joking aside, great idea for a show car and those whom don't want to do any sort of racing (other than maybe drag racing). However this leads me to one exception. There are bags that are level sensitive rather then pressure sensitive. With your average air ride you set it up based on PSI = ride height.

      However there are bags that are being used for performance and are set at a level. Meaning when you go hard into a corner and the suspension starts to dip, the controller sees that and raises pressure to compensate for it and keeps the suspension neutral. I would rock the sh!t out of these.

      Aluminum roll cages -

      Stupidest F*cking idea ever. The whole point of a cage it to increase structural support. The reason is two fold, safety and stiffness. An Aluminum cage does not provide nearly the support and is not safe in an accident scenario (defeats the safety aspect). This is the reason approved drag cages and SCCA approved cages have to be out of certain types of steel (chromoly 41XX content steel preferred.)

      Bolt in cages are almost as f*cking useless as you are depending on the sheer strength of a bolt in an accident scenario, rather then a welded joint. My mechanical engineering degree tells me anyone wanting to take that risk needs their head read.

      In both cases they are nothing more than a show piece. ZMDLIT

      +10 Sarcasm points to you sir.

      Rusted hoods - I never understood this fad. "Look at me, I'm different", no you just look like you are too poor to paint your god damn hood. I suppose the look might have worked on mk3's since they are just a giant rusty mess anyway.

      I have to disagree regarding wheel adapters...
      You find a rare set of wheels that you know they'll look awesome on your car but the pcd is all wrong - adapters and issue solved.



      Zack, how about Porsche badges on Corrado???

      I disagree with this. Bolt-in steel cages are perfectly valid for clubman level motorsport as a step above the minimal protection offered by the monocoque. Sure, they're not as strong as a multi-point welded in cage, but that doesn't make them useless.

      I have seen two incidents with bolt-in cages where they did their job perfectly and prevented serious injuries. Both incidents would have had very different outcomes without cages.

      Here's a video of one of them:



      The driver is a friend of mine and was racing in the historic class which only allows a 6-point bolt-in cage.

      There had to have been gusseted mounting plates that the cage was bolted to for that... I can't imagine floor board sheet metal alone supporting what that cage went through.

      Ahh...The dreaded "S" word. The single most harmful thing to the VW scene in the last few years. It is one thing to be low (until your control arms a parallel to the road) it's another thing to do it because "your car looks sick bro". Absolutely 110% can't stand this ****.

      Not only that but look at h20i the last few years. Any idiot with a "Stanced" car shows up. It really has ruined the vw scene.

      I was asked by a few people to let them shoot my car for such online "stance" websites. They said the only condition is that I would have to lower my car some more. I told them to get f*cked.

      Believe it or not I only really like RS's on mk1-3's. I find them to be a period correct look on these cars (and timeless). I however can not stand painted wheels, only BBS silver for this guy. (But thats a whole different rant).

      I do not like these wheels on MKV+ especially. It's exactly the same feeling I have about the reproduce larger teardrops people put on the new cars, its just out of place.

      Also 99% of cars with RS's are slow, I use it as camouflage

      I don't like crispy bacon, I don't like soggy either. Little crunch, little chewy. Takes a skilled professional to master this type of bacon. I suggest you up your game.

      Tires have come a long way, there really isn't any safety issue these days with slight stretching. However recognize it is a form over function concept to make your wheels fit.

      I still wouldn't personally go very stretched with a tire, I value performance to much, even on my "show wheels" (The RS's)

      That all depends. It is one of three things;

      1. A VW/Audi enthusiast group on facebook, that seems addicted to "stanced" cars and questionably hot women.

      2. When a woman is so hot you would eat the corn pieces out of her crap.

      3. Or after a red neck has its way with a sheep and declares it has achieved "corn hole status"

      No need to step up my game. Crispy bacon assumes it is not a brittle piece of cardboard

      Definitely. The foot plates have to be a minimum of 120 square cm & 3mm thick. They would be welded to the cage and would be bolted through the floor to a matching plate on the outside. Surprisingly the MSA regs only demand three 8.8 grade M8 bolts per foot, but I've never seen one like that. Most people use at least four M10s instead.

      205/45 on a 16 x 9 - Wouldn't ever catch me dead doing it. But again I can understand for a "show car", since thats the "look".

      Syncro/Haldex - This will be my next upgrade. The hybrid of the two.

      Plasti Dip - Great for reconditioning old plastic parts, nothing else.

      Wheel adapters - Just another thing to worry about. It always amazed me that people who have adapters aren't more careful and actually use a damn torque wrench on them. Defiantly never race on them. I had a set of D90's on my car 2 years ago..



      Carbon fiber vinyl - Hell no, vinyl anything looks cheap.

      Carbon fiber - I'm not a fan of carbon fiber anywhere. I think it looks ricey. It can be done well, but 99% of the time its way overdone. However it does make a good intake material.

      I hate this sh!t. It's one thing to leave them on the wheels. It's another thing to add them to you car. Personally I loved the shaved look, as you can see (that goes for cares and women btw). Most people don't know what the hell they are looking at when they look at my car anyway.

      I have seen two incidents with bolt-in cages where they did their job perfectly and prevented serious injuries. Both incidents would have had very different outcomes without cages.

      Here's a video of one of them:



      The driver is a friend of mine and was racing in the historic class which only allows a 6-point bolt-in cage.

      Interesting.... I'd be interested in learning why they only allow bolt-ins, I've never heard of such a thing.

      Shaved Front Bumpers - Can't stand the look, kills the front end of the car for me. ZMDLIT

      280mm steering wheels - What is this? Baby Gap? Get an appropriate size wheel! ZMDLIT

      AWIC/FMIC - Either or, really depends on your setup and your goals. I went with FMIC, but AWIC can produce more consistent intake temps. Also depends what you have room for. Either or on this one.

      This is probably the fastest moving thread I have seen in years. I don't have much to contribute other than I second your taste on RS's. I hate color matched or painted centers. Polish em, chrome em, or silver.. done. I am done for now. Good thread Zack, hope you're ready to see your post count sky rocket!!

      I didn't expect it to move this fast, but fun none the less. Glad you agree on the RS's. Good sanity check.

      Been here since 2004, pretty low post count for being here that long.

      G60? Do your maintenance, make sure the charger is healthy (I'd recommend kompressorkanada do your rebuild). Stage 4 kit, with an SNS chip, enjoy it. When the Gladder blows, I have a list I can post that you can build a decent turbo kit out of junk yard parts and be up around 190whp for less than 1k.

      Unless its 100% stock and that's what your going for. Pictures? Miles? Let's see this thing.

      Either way you don't have to molest anything, do the work tastefully and it should turn out fine.
