funny really....

Discussion in '2000 Lingenfelter 650 Corvette' started by Scooby and TVR man, Sep 26, 2002.

  1. If you look in the vette and viper fourums you find people slagging off jap cars and comparing the vettes and vipers to supras and skylines etc, someone tell me why these cars are compared.
    another funny thing is that if u look in the high performance jap fourums the will e topics there started by americans comparing the vette/viper to supras etc.

    what do you think the point of the forums is? its to talk about cars and compare them to other cars
     
  5. Re: funny really....

    yeah but the point im trying to make is y americans insist on comparing their cars with big engines to the jap cars with half the engine and half the price.

    y do you never compare cars that are alike like comparing the vette with something like a noble m12 gto or a few tvr cars
     
  6. Re: funny really....

    Good point, however the jap cars that we compare vettes and vipers to aren't half the price, and using 30psi of boost makes up for that other 2 liters they are missing, but i dont compare cars to tvr and lotus and shit because i just dont really like them, maybe i will look into that tho.

    well at least you are open to suggestions

    "!and using 30psi of boost makes up for that other 2 liters they are missing"

    Actually, if you look in the Viper and TVR forums, it is almost invariably the TVR fans that have started the comparisons. The Z06 vs. Tuscan thread certainly wasn't started by an American car fan.

    What's really funny is when the anti-American car fans say the Viper or Z06 can't handle.

    who let that weirdo out?

    and im not bothered about vipers and Vettes being compared to TVR as that is about the best comparison u could make (same performance, same price bracket etc) it when they get compared to half price jap cars with half the engine that it gets annoying.
     
  12. Re: funny really....

    The only reason they are "half" the price is because all decent Japanese sports cars are used and 7 years old now and if you want to import a new one then the American cars are half the price. $80,000 to import a stock Skyline R34! Then spend a few extra grand on mods to keep up with a Z06. What is a good deal then? Don't get me wrong, Skylines are one of my fave cars, I just wish these cars were actually sold in America so we could have a solid basis for comparison.
     
  13. Re: funny really....

    same problem, its hard to get hold ofa vette/viper in this country and when they are they are (new) more expensive than skylines
     
  14. Re: funny really....

    Impreza might have a point if you think about it,put a stock Skyline R34 up to a stock Vette'(no ZO6,that would just be stupid)the Vette would actually have a challange in that race,but Vette's and Vipers aren't all that USA has in there line up,you could resort Vector if you really wanted to...But it all matters on the driver.
     
  15. Re: funny really....

    you could resort to the vector or saleen but then we are into the wrong market
