Lol, it has bent hinges, the shop that first built this car 5 years ago did that.

The bent hinges do vent the hood however if you look at the engine bay shots you can see a 1" tall foam rubber strip sealing the rear and both sides.

The guy who owns it like the lights up. a little.

And yes radiator ducts yes, almost forgot.... or not.

I would hate a car with no traction. I never understood that as a badge of honor (usually by FWD guys).

It determined the cars that could break traction on crappy all season tires.
Which was fast.

yep, and it's not slow either. I guess I don't drive like a douche, so I wouldn't know what it's like to be stupid. Only when I'm drifting into your mom's booty.

If you plug the other two spark wires in it might work.
<- spins 275 A6s at the start with 90hp.

You're lucky that 100-shot of NOS didn't blow the welds on the intake.

Ill post dyno sheets and try to do one where we run it under low load at 3000rpm and punch it so you can see boost response.

sorry but that's a terrible analogy.
a 1000whp supra is one of the most traction limited cars you can imagine.

A lot more traction than a 1000whp blown big block supra when it comes to stabbing the throttle in 4th.

Compare this to a 1000hp supra,



The above car breaks traction INSTANTLY on every throttle application.

Who knows, maybe Im full of ****. Seems that way to me anyhow.
