  1. or not
     
  2. that really sounds awesome, have fun with it!
     
  3. Superformance daytona coupe
    Porsche Cayman
    Porsche 930
    Corvette C5
     
  4. No.
     
  5. +1 mother#$%#er. Minus the C5, that's my list...
     
  6. I get rediculous discounts on all GM parts. it'd be stupid of me not to have a vette on a possible barely street legal/track toy list. I'm also thinking of adding Superformances GT40 on there. it looks so fun.
     
  7. And of course there's no reason whatsoever why Lotus chose the Toyota engine over the Honda one.
     
  8. awesome car, a little loud for how fast you are really going...but awesome handling. couldnt get the back end to come out on my friends in a parking lot!
     
  9. I agree. But a stage2 sports exhaust and an lsd (only when you know very well how the car handles) are always welcome <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  10. The main problem with the Toyota engine is the violent increase of torque and power when passing 6000rpms, though I think this can be fixed with some aftermarket modifications. The honda also has this problem (vtec kicked in y0 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>) but the torque increase is less violent than the toyota one.


    The best choice would be to put a wankel engine, lightweight and most importantly very smooth; something that such lightweight cars need. But it's expensive, not to mention that there might be overheating problems and reliability issues
