Induce cope and butt hurt with only a single image.
>>26107715put adjustable shocks and lowering springs on my golden era honda last week, finally turned them to max stiff and hit some backroads today. now i know why this is a meme, shit is so hard to unsettle it just turns where you want with no complaint. i usually have to carefully manage weight transfer to do what this does effortlessly
>>26107732It sounds like you have never driven a good car and are ranting and raving about how not shit your shit car is.Shameful.
>what tire pressure are you running?>whatever's in there
>>26107735roasted & truthpilled
>>26107715>Rubber gaiterIs this British for ball joint?I can understand rotor but idk about that one
>>26107740It's the rubber bit that prevents dirt and water from getting in there. See also shift boot/gaiter.
>>26107725The ls is still much larger, just the intake manifold of the ls is the size of the miata's header/valve cover and it weigh 170lbs more than the 1.8l. Only retards fall for this.
>>2610773590s civics and integras are light and have double wishbone front and back
>>26107735>under 2500lbs>double wishbone front and rearaside from miata and lotus elise, what other cars fit this category
>>26107763There's the butthurt and cope.
>>26107788>3200lbs>not lightYeah, it's not a featherweight like a Miata but it also makes more than 100hp.
>>26107778>high curb appeal that girls will respectnigga no woman - or man for that matter - is going to "respect" you for driving a Barbie car. They'll go "aww! how cute anon I like your car!"
>>261077953200lbs is really heavy anon
>>26107803cope and sneed
>>26107803Compared to what Anon, something not in it's class?
>>26107779>U madthis is peak /o/ busrider posting.
>>26107715>no adjustable torsion rod springDo you even commercial load carrying double wishbone?
>>26107803C5 has about double the power/weight ratio thoughMiata (113HP/2094lbs)= 0.054C5 (339HP/3245lbs)= 0.1045According to ultimatespecs.com
>>26107803Damn dude your right. Id much rather have a 2400lb Miata rather than a PIGFAT 3260lb GT2RS. Don't even get me started on the 3700lb zl1 1le, such a shit overweight car that gets stomped on by your Miata. The Tesla model 3 performance gets stomped even harder, even on short courses with no straights. Damn wtf why are all these pigfatty cars so bad compared to your actual TRUE sportscar.Now continue to inform us about how all the record setting sportscars are in fact really heavy, then give us some examples of light sportscars that exist in your imagination.
>>26107803Nah, it's a good balance for power application without dire expense. You want a 2600lb 400+hp machine you're gonna need to look at aero and serious susp., or all it's good for is drag races.Because you're basically asking for a GT3.c5 vette is nothing less than a good all rounder
>>26107821>thread is "post things that make people mad">post thing that is sure to make people mad>people get madYes, u mad.
>>26107914I felt that would've been the obvious low-hanging fruit.
>>26107914Idk why people fall for this bait. The Nissan cost $40k more than the corvette.
>>26107941>on grip spray with blowtorched tires and 5 foot rolloutI believe EE had btfo this (and basically every) 0-60 claim last year.
>>26107947>2.5 mins to prove my pointThanks :^)
>>26107736actual seething of same car by some onlookers (contains shit music)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFwPXEeJ3aI
>>26107833C5 Z06 have 385 or 405 horsepower.Even base c5s have 350+ horsepower.Around 360hp for post 2001 models.GM LS1 and LS6 ratings were mostly bullshit.
>>26107917kek the Corvette is lighter and has more hp>still slowergtfo with your farm equipment "race car"
How the fuck did this thread go from a vague post about double wishbone suspension to this stupid argument again. Everyone here is an unhinged mental.
>>26108546The thread literally worked flawlessly.
>>26108546>thread is about pissing people off>people employ tried and true tactics to piss people offShocker.
>>26107941Massive 992 WGod i love Porsche
>>261077953200 isn't light. under 2000 is light.
>>26107725LS's are indeed incredibly light and compact and it's funny to see delusional weebs use "muh weight distribution" as an argument, but proper LS swaps into cars that were never meant for a powerful V8 are really costly because you have to upgrade lots of shit to handle the power-from brakes to the rear end. That's why a complete LS swap by Flyin' Miata is around 60k. Cheaper to get a Corvette at this point really
>>26107715It's harder to service, therefore I don't like it.
>>26108595Get a corvette and remove all the gay stuff
>>26108595Weird how all those moron engineers ever took a pushrod v8 group b rallying. I guess you know something they don't
>>26107927As a Europoor, I'd never choose a hideous BMW over the beauty that is the Corvette. Anyone who would, doesn't really like cars.
>>26108636In 1985-6-7, an Audi Quattro fitted with a pushrod Rover V8 ran at the Dakar because the Turbo 5 couldn't handle the temperatures.LOL
>>26107803Compared to my car, its not heavy, yeah but its ultralight weight compared to your mom
>>26107870i still see no advantage whatsoever to making the doors gull-wing doorswe have yet to see any significant innovation in changes to traditional doorsthe fact that this new Delorean concept vehicle has these shitty lame gull-wings only highlights the fact that they have gotten nowhere in the last 50 yearsjust putting a new coat of paint on an old turd
>>26107763Akshually the N/A Mazda is 280 pounds.With the turbo, piping, intercooler etc it's heavier than the 403 pounds of an aluminum LS.A full Iron big block FE is about 510 pounds.Iron intake is 76 pounds, aluminum intake is 24 pounds, so that brings it down to about 458.Aluminum heads, water pump, brackets and now a fucking big block weighs less than the Mazda.
>>26108636Engineers aren't morons, but you sure are, and an ignorant one too. Rally cars were supposed to be based off regular production vehicles and you see, it just happens those don't get v8s that often. What's more, racing classes also have engine capacity limitations, and in rallying they happen to be really restrictive. Racing also happens to be very expensive so lesser engine configurations are often used to minimize running costs. Go outside read a book, etc.
>>26107774this belongs in a YLYL thread
>>26107715>loses to a McDonalds front, torsion beam rear Renault Megane RS at the Burgerking
>>26108696I'm trying to find any source on this and can't find anything besides them using detuned 10vt cars for dakar in 1985. I can't see any reason why that specific engine would be used considering it wouldn't fit the rest of the drivetrain at all.
>>26107774>Earn 50000 a year>Max I can afford is a scooterACKKKK
>>26108863weird how pushrod v8's never won wrc or f1 since they're so light, compact and reliable.
>>26108940OK I found somethinghttps://www.woowmotors.com/car/1986-audi-quattro-proto-dakarNot a factory car, essentially a silhouette car, only partook in dakar once in 1987 although apparently there were 5 built? It's hard making it through what seems to be a poor translation
>>26108948Read this month's Octane magazine issue #235. Full story there.Basically it's a V8 Range Rover with a lot of Audi spliced into it by a mad frenchman who got into Rally Raid and loved his Quattro but found it unsuited to the desert.It's tenuous, but it's a Group B Audi, during the Group B era, racing with a pushrod V8 and doing quite well.
>>26108961yeah doing so well that nobody has ever heard of it
>>26108963(((they))) don't want you to.Pushrods Pushgods
>>26108966((they)) would have us all driving pushrod caveman-mobiles I'm dohc master race.

>>26109041this but unironically
>>26109041302 or nothing
>>26109041The old mustang was faster than the V8 at the time and didn't explode
>>26107802if thats not enough of an in to get a girl in the sack then you have no game
>>26109079The ae86 was faster than the v8 mustang in the 80's it's a low bar.
>>26109245How much APR on forklift operator's loans?
>>26109028Lopey cams are a thing for OHC engines too, you could even toss a 260° cam in a Twingo (which sounds like a pretty funny thing to do).
>>26108947You're just retarded, seek help
>>26109245>tfw I'm about to sell my Series.Blue
>>26107715Don't know what that is>>26107725Are you saying that there's no excuse not to upgrade to an LS engine because it's the same size anyway? Ok>>26107736The image is stretched. The wheel ellipses are off.>>26107774I make 61k a year. To I drive a 2015 luxury sedan. 3 to 5 years would have been too expensive I think. >>26107777Based digits, Tesla is gay and it's failing. Just look at the stock over the course of the year. >>26107778I unfortunately want a c4 Corvette. I think they're great cars.>>26107829Yea that's annoying. These manufacturers will do anything to make people stop buying cars and start buying SUVs. They claim it's all based on consumer demand but it's bullshit. They manufacturer demand and then eventually just stop giving you alternative options. No different from stick shift. They act like no one wants it. No it's just that most cars don't offer it. And over time of less cars have it then less people learn to use it. >>26107870It's just a cartoon. Don't get upset about it. Delorean had been dead for like 40 years. The only reason anyone liked it was the stainless steel, flat boxy sheet metal and wedge front end. There's no point in calling something a delorean without those things. It's as bad as Ford calling that tiny little pick up a maverick. That tells entirely on younger generation not being familiar with Mavericks but with good knowing that the name sold well. Sad.>>26107914Looks like it would hurt if it was put in your butt if that's what you mean.>>26107917Japanese cars are drained to corner, Americans are designed for straight lines. Always has been that way.>>26107923Porsche rules. If I had lots of money the first thing I would do is buy a 997. For my mom.>>26107927Can't you just see the shape of a Corvette and understand that it's not built to corner quickly? Why is this surprising to people?>>26107931Alright that one stings. Would still prefer a first gen though.
>>26108844SEETHE You're right though...
>>26107941Teslas are great when they're not exploring into flames or licking you or because of necessary software updates>>26107957More information needed>>26108484I support this.>>26108536What's the problem? I don't even get it.>>26108612Depends what it's being used for.>>26108696Your design will never improve if you don't admit your mistakes and learn from them. >>26108774I tried my first grown up go carts last week. It was so fun. My 325i already has a welded diff from the p.o. now I want to use it. Where is a race track near NYC? Closest I can find is Englishtown NJ, 2 hours away>>26108836No idea what that means>>26108842This is obviously true. That's why the maverick is good. Most people just like how trucks look and are afraid of snow. That's the reason they but these huge engines that they don't need. I don't really believe global warming but I do think they are wasting their on money off gas they don't need. >>26108844If you're doing enough to pay for it then you deserve to be taxed for it. We need the money.>>26108847What's touge? >>26109041Would happily have either. Would always prefer v8.>>26109245Always I don't understand the third panel
>>26108636>muh group b ultimate racing carEmbarrassing>Weight restrictions were applied on a scale in relation to the engine cylinder capacity. The minimum weight was 580 kg for engine below 1000 cc, to 1,300 kg for engines over 5,000 ccA 305 small block powered car would have had to run 900lbs heavier than a 205 T16 or Delta S4 as a handicap.
>>26108774Now actually race and you can really not be a faggot.
>>26108961>>26108696the Rover V8 is a licensed copy of the Buick Nailhead btwvalves are a bit small (hence the nickname) but still a great engine nonetheless
>>26108998No this is a salesman myth. I have an ITR, it's not double wishbones on the rear. It's some kind of semi-trailing arm setup, made to flex under braking load to change the toe angle of the rear train. If I'm not wrong Porsche was doing something similar on old 911.
>>26109895Correction, the Rover V8 started as the Buick 215 smallblock design which was intended as the Nailhead's successor.
>>26107803a lot of supercars are over that weight, but yeah i get the point...cars that weight less are fun too
>>26109372>>26109408mass reply fags get the rope
>>26107735Sounds like you've never driven a well set up Honda to know how amazing they are.
The future of our little hobby is performance EVs. ICE appliances are on their way out.
>>26107715God's suspension. Simple, elegant, and effective
>>26110075supercars are made for the autobahn and car shows. they are not made for low speed turns and they are not made to be modified or wrenched on to suit a specific drivers preferences. soulless '1 size fits all' moneypits for rich people who don't know about cars.
>>26107715It's 4 AM and I'm tired as fuck, but OP's pic was blurry in my eyes for a second and I thought it was Pepe doing yoga or something from the thumbnailGod I need to quit this fucking site
>>26109364Is this loss?

>>26107774this is actually pretty good advice for normie retards who are up to their eyeballs in debt because they're financing a car that costs more than their annual salary
>>26107774>mfw daily a 25 year old midrange and a 22 year old roadster
>>26107725Wow, 2 banks of 4 cylinders is only slightly longer than 1 bank! They're basically the same size!The LS even got a more-advantageous angle, if the BP was at the same angle the box would be even smaller.
