Apparently, Dodge can't spell

  1. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    i dunno where the WRX rapes (keyword rapes) the GT anywhere, besides 0-60, but the WRX is all wheel drive and the GT is Front engine rear wheel drive. that is a big difference. and american auto manufacturers dont need 8.3 liter V10 to produce 500 horse. they are interested in tourque, unlike many companies, and they like their tourque at lower rpms, not way up by the redline. And they dont use twin turbos and then brag about their cars's HP/Litre. take almost any car and put the same turbo boost on it and see where it is compared to your foreign cars.

    And just for the record, i have little respect for jap anesse companies whatsoever exept a select few (tommykaira, subaru (somewhat))


    oh, one last thing i forgot, where does subaru get the idea to compare an outback's gas mileage to an explorer in their commercials when they are not even the same type of vehicle? Wagon vs. SUV, i dont get it. i dont care if its AWD a wagon is a wagon.
     
  2. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Since were on the topic of Subaru. I like Subarus alot. My favorite auto manufacturers are:

    1.Toyota
    2.Subaru
    3.Honda
    4.Mazda
    5.Nissan
    6.Mitsubishi has no place on this list

    If Subaru came out with AWD compact and fullsize trucks with competitive performance to that of the Tacoma and Tundra trucks and if they looked half as good doing it... then Subaru would be my new favorite company. I want a competitor for the Tacoma because the Ranger has nothin doin.

    hmmm. This car is a PICK-UP.
    What's wrong with GM???

    Seriously, what's the point in putting a 505cid in a pick-up?

    I heard that pick-ups and such bypass all the pollution regulations. is this right?
     
  4. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Im not here to argue, im just here to reply to a entry earlier on in this subject. Somebody said they should come back with the cuda. Well they are actually considering it. A prototype has been made looking quite similar to the 2005 charger. It will or course be substansially smaller than the charger but like the charger the redesigned 426 hemi will be an option. New handling and even more power will bring this "fossil" car back to the top. (Not that it ever left). Just more to choose from.

  7. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    All these idiots in here who bash American engines for being "big" as you like to say are ignorant. It should be noted that the Corvette's LS1/LS6 is lighter than the BMW M5's S62 4.9L V8, the Nissan Skyline's RB26DETT and many other motors out there. In fact, I think it's even lighter than the M3's S54 inline 6, as well as the 911's flat-6. So all of these people who are talking about American engines being "too big" need to read before they type. If however you're referring to large displacement, it should be noted that often times less hp/l means less stress on the engine. 240hp from a 2.0L inline 4 sounded good at introduction, but many S2000's ended up in the shop with cracked blocks. The same thing happened with BMW's M3 (problems regarding the 5th cylinder, one guy had an intake or exhaust valve snap and leak sodium into the cylinder), and while it isn't too well known, many Rex's in Oz have ended up in the shop with engine failure issues.

    Honestly, hp/l is a bullshit excuse people use when their small displacement motor can't run with the big boys. It works both ways though. Remember how the Mustang guys used to cry that the SS and WS6 guys had an extra 1.1L of displacement, now the GM guys whine about how the Cobra uses forced induction. If it's not one thing, it;s another. It's amusing to watch people ***** about their car not being able to compete because the guy next to him has and extra liter of displacement, or a pair of turbos. Hey, you don't like it, tune what you got... OR BUY SOMETHING ELSE.

    SRT stand for Street and racing techonology not street road and track
     
  9. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Actually, just for fun, Dodge did make a Caravan with a Viper engine.
     
  10. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    It' called the 2003 Dodge ACP Grand Caravan Extreme.
     
  11. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    camaroking396 - You're a moron, first of all I can post a link to a videoclip in which a STOCK WRX lays waste to a Stock Camaro SS, if you like.

    Second, if you're gonna compare cars, then compare right. How about the Cobra R vs. the Impreza WRX STI? STI is cheaper, has considerably less power, yet the acceleration is just as fast, and the handling of the STI far surpasses the Cobra R.
     
  12. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Did you know that Dodge also put a Viper engine in a motorcycle?
     
  13. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Yeah, the Tomahawk. Ihear its supposed to go 400 MPH.
     
  14. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    I was at the Barret Jackson Auto Show - Scottsdale, AZ, and there i saw a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, and guess what engine was in it?? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Yup, lol u guessed it. The speedo went to 220... hood was open, i was at the rear, as i approached the front... my eyes got bigger, and bigger, until i couldnt believe it. It was wonderful.
     
  15. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    Dude, you need to do your homework before you start writing crap where everyone can see it. I was actually hoping the SRT stood for Super Road & Track, but everyone's saying 'Street', so I guess it's street. Anyway, this truck looks awesome, and for it to go 0-60mph in 5.0sec is even better. Why would one want their truck to go fast? Why would one want their car to go fast or their motorcycle for that matter... idiot.
     
  16. Re: Apparently, Dodge can't spell

    SRT stands for Street Racing Technology, and why are we comparing a pick up truck to a 4 or 6 cylinder, i dont know cuz i hate jap cars mostly, then we got totally off the subject with the mustang against the wrx when this is a Dodge SRT 10 concept forum? i mean really, stick to the subject. Supercars does mess up some things obviously for the SRT mess up but you should study your cars more into like maybe magazines like motor trend, car and driver or w/e will talk about it.

    hmmmm......interesting........
     
  19. Re:

    They had a concept with a viper engin in a neon... Unorigional as it may seem I think it was the SRT-10 Neon
     
  20. i think the rims on this concept are better than the ugly 22's they put on the production vehicle
     
  21. Actually, its Street & Racing Technology


    Why are we comparing a Ford Lightning and a WRX.

    The Ford Lightning and Dodge Ram SRT-10 are pointless, they are just an oversized car with a bed. You can't tow anything with them, you can't race with them unless its straight line stuff, and you can't get more than 20MPG with them.

    I'm more of an Evo person but to drive daily, a WRX would beat the hell out of an SRT-10 ram or Lightning.
