I could add 17' of intercooler pipes and my throttle repsonse would not be negated.

I hate to see all the bashing, but it's not completely unfounded. You can still redeem yourself by building a nice solid track car that works and performs. If its got function and form I can dig, although I must say the gold isn't too good looking so far. You need a ***** shift **** to go with it,

I'm sure this thread will be entertaining either way, but I hope OP delivers. Who is garagestar? From reading this thread it sounds like some kind of hipster hardparking company.

I can't help myself. No rollbar, ITB dreams, glue on ironic gold embellishments and "sponsorships". I await the 86 page thread on CR, where photos taken of GSXR throttle bodies using PBR cans and fixies as a backdrop are "updates".

How did you get 244 posts and learn nothing?

Keep on driving, hopefully someday you'll look back on this self promotion with a little awareness and laugh.

So, how do you plan on actually doing this? Do you know how to weld aluminium or $xxxx laying around?

All im hearing is a whole bunch of meh. Its a work in progress and is far from complete. Keep hating all you want. I'm not one to be upset by something so petty. I appreciate any positive comments received

Sweetie, you have nothing to back up your claims, most your parts do almost nothing and ITB's are not going to do much for your car. Now provide proof that you are this holy grail of auto-x or modifications or I'll stick it in your pooper.

You're arguing with people here that have done those mods that you dream of. Many of the more that once and more than twice. Listen to them, rather than flapping your mouth about with silly coming out of it.

^u mad bro? It seems that everyone posting has a throbbing prostate that needs stimulating while I'm just chillaxing. Why everyone so mad?

I never claimed to be an autox god but you can always check out dixiescca.com for event results.

I thought build threads were supposed to be about a build...? I'm really just getting into my buildup and that's why I just started a build thread. I didn't realize build were supposed to start and end with the first post

This isn't CR. Skinny wheels + shitty suspension + gold interior + performance oil cap =/= build thread. Just about everything you've done to your car is counter productive from a "price to performance" standpoint. Also having sponsorship from a company that, apparently, doesn't actually make any parts that we can't make ourselves is not going to impress us.

Take some time and look around here. You'll be surprised what most of us can do.

When did I ever say I doubted any of you? I've been lurking this site for over a year and seen a lot of great cars that made me super jealous. Like i said, I'm really just starting my build.

We all have to start somewhere. Sorry for misinterpreting the point of a build thread.

I hope to have a car like that one day. At 22 years old, paying my way through college, and working a part time job; I think I'm doing pretty well for myself

I gotta say, you are taking the heat pretty well. Most noobs won't even post again after that.

Now we have to make you understand that you NEED to turbo your car and that you don't spend $3,000 for a 145whp ITB setup unless you enjoy phallic shaped foods more than you should.

We all start from somewhere.
