I have no knowledge of Basch superchargers. I'm just under the impression that a NSX could use more power and it looks to be easier to add a supercharger then one or two turbo(s) b/c of the way the engine is set up in the engine bay.

Does it for me.


About eight months ago a friend was selling his high mile '04 Z06. He traveled 120 miles round trip everyday to and from work so most was highway driven. Think it was 158,xxx or something pretty close. Tells me his friend price was $14k. I drove it. Committed blasphemy off every red light for 2 miles. Offered to trade my Mazdaspeed6 jokingly and he said yes. I got cold feet and bitched out, told him I didn't like the color. Come on, it WAS ******* yellow..... Yes, I'm an idiot for turning it down. Seriously though, I didn't have a garage to keep it in and between the bird **** and tree sap shitting all over it, would've been a pretty sad sight.

He sold it to some genius dumbfuck rich ---- who gave it to his son. Totaled in 3 weeks.




NSX doesn't do it for me. Have you ever worked on a midship TRANSVERSE MOUNTED engine car? **** that. Blow the engine, then what? They're awful cool looking for a [H]omocar, but as usual I think they're way overrated. Course I'm a little bias- Only honda I'd ever drive would be a 5th gen Prelude if it were built the way they should have. Front engine, Rear Wheel Drive, IRS, 6 speed manual gearbox, weigh no more than 2000 pounds, and come factory with 200hp/200tq @ rear wheels. No. I said PRELUDE, NOT S2000.



Does this Scratch your Itch?
:: C5 Z06 Corvette Twin Turbo Halltech stats ::
Horsepower 1000 hp / 745.7 kw @ 6300 rpm
Torque 1458 ft/lbs 1976.78 N @ 4800 rpm
Redline 7000 rpm




I don't know what to tell you. Can't really find much for body modifications on C5's that I care for. Kind of hard to improve perfection.

Believe it or not, I also have the same Prelude argument with my homeboys and it always goes the same way:

Pusha: Man, they should have made the Prelude RWD.
bro: ni66a you crazy, everyone knows the h22 makes mad torque
Pusha: But at what cost?
bro: the cost of not being able to drift but you can snap axles like a mo *****
Pusha: ...
bro: homeboy you just jealous with your inefficient RWD crap

My car is immaculate. ~32k miles and it's PRISTINE. I've had it listed for sale twice but I can never bring myself to let it go. I fluff my chest hair, jump in it and use both feet to push in the clutch. Haters will hate and one day I'll finish my Miata and boost my C5.

Even the ugly-*** shift **** grew on me:

Lots of hondas make peak torque at low RPM... like 90% of them
all the good ones dont though, since peak torque is a meaningless number used by retarded domestic owners who listen to Carroll Shelby too much

I hate "Choppers" in the "Orange County Chopper" definition. Every one of their ******* bikes looks the same and if I see one more spider web bike I'm going to ******* puke. Saw an episode the other day where OCC celebrated 10 years and started to carry Ducatis. They put ******* spider webs in paint on a Ducati Monster.

This bike which you've posted a picture to.. ******* sick. I'd ride it. Would MUCH prefer the front wheel be where it belongs and not all faggged out like that.. but still sick!
I can't agree more.

Are those GoPRO video cameras really shitty as everyone says? Was going to buy one for the longest time but have been put off by the negative reviews. Hell, noticed Mythbusters started using them for helmet and gun cams..
I've used my brother's gopro and I think it works great. I figured if there's competition maybe price would go down or features would increase, competition is always good. My big problem with them however is that I cannot edit the video files. My computers suck and I don't have good software. boohoo.

Wow, Really?? Are you that ignorant??

Horsepower means ****. Its nothing more than a mathematical calculation of TORQUE and engine RPM. There mere dictionary definition of the word "horsepower" pretty much speaks it all:

horse·pow·er   [hawrs-pou-er]
noun
1. a foot-pound-second unit of power, equivalent to 550 foot-pounds per second, or 745.7 watts.


The formula is something along the lines of 2π(force * radius)(RPM)/33,000 ft-lb/min = HP

Without mechanical torque and James Watt your precious horsepower would simply not exist so GTFO with your "Listen to Carol Shelby too much" bullshit. By the way, how many professional race series have you won? How many cars have you designed and built from the ground up? Yeah, none.



Without torque, that retard would only be a retard instead of a tire smoking retard.

I could use a little dish on the wheels.. The ZR1 is kind of a take it or leave it with dished wheels to me, though. Admittedly, the Six ZR1's I've seen all had stock wheels so I've no idea what it would look like really. Have pl0x? My department's VP's company car is a TL-S.. lol.

All of the complaints I can recall were audio related on the GoPro's in relation to motion. Guess the sound gets pretty bad with wind noise? I had the impression the cameras were designed to not have wind noise?

Seems there are a few personal sports HD cameras on the market which I just found via google search. Only one I've ever heard of is the GoPro, though. Some true competition in that market wouldn't be a bad thing honestly.



Just noticed when I want to search for something mid post (or anytime, really) I'll just open a new Chrome Tab and don't seem to bother ever closing them. Current count is 43 open tabs and performance hasn't suffered a bit!




What makes math fun?

*********** at youtube terminated the account of the last video. So here is another upload...

I don't care if you love him or hate him. I want this kids ******* dayjob:



Edit: Thought I'd comment after posting this. That is a $30,000 machine gun and the ammo it fires is about $3.00 a round. At that price a 500 round tin would run you about $1500.00.. Just food for thought considering he fired off an entire tin of ammo.

I know everyone has seen the "I'm on a boat" video.. Found some pretty interesting remixes of the video.. Think this is one of the better ones I've seen:



Don't forget about dick in a box:








On that note, **** you bitches. I'm going to the golf course!!
