I'm not attacking Peter as a person. I'm just saying his tastes in automotive styling are "semi-retarded."

I will give Peter credit for just doing what he wants.

When I first heard of the carb, it made me think of the old school Rat Rods, and I give him credit for taking an old school approach to a newer school car. The carb idea was ok in my book, I wasn't a fan of the rusted trunk. I did like that he did something different with his car, but not my cup of tea and I am kinda sick of everyone over at CR doing the rusted look.

I am not a big fan of his new car, but I do like the wire tuck and would like to in the end do the same with my miata. I started doing one on my Talon. It just cleans up the look of the engine bay, but to go so far as to lose function is retarded. When people relocate things such as the overflow to under a bumper, I give them credit for keeping function while adding style but to remove something as functional as the wipers. That is just asking for it.

In the end, his car, his style he can do what he wants, whether I like or don't like it shouldn't matter to him. Just like what I do to my car is what I want, it doesn't matter what others thing as long as I enjoy my car.

No, you're possibly the biggest ------ of all on that board. You're just sad honestly. Go back to CR.net and impress your highschool SoCal buddies.

that car doesn't bug me. it's all one color (I'll forgive the hardtop) and ... oh wait a minute. parts of it are either not green or have been repainted. that right front fender doesn't match the door.

and those wheels are heavy. and the eyelids are... eyelids.

I think the real reason it's NA is because of CARB.

Wheels must weigh like 30 pounds a corner, but hey who cares if it takes a 1/4 mile to stop that bitch. Can you imagine hitting a bump in that thing? You would be all over the ******* road.

Chameleon paint on portions, and carbon fiber trunk and fenders... Make up your mind.
Obvious reasons have already been pointed out for the wheels.
Could have been a good looking car...

One of the main reasons I came to this forum....
If I wanted to "Hardpark", I'd stay in the garage.
Don't want to sound like an M.netter, but destroying the steering and handling of the Miata for just pure "looks" is redonkalus.
Improvements are a given, but when it outweighs the functionality, it is just obscene.

1. what is an "artard"?

2. I googled "hardpark" and ran across a flickr site of neat looking VDubs. I started browzing the pics and WAT do I see on page number 2?



purple wheels.

and later? does not compute?



also I think these cars share wheels.

When that car looks like one color it does look good for what it is. The color shift looks like crap. Sure everyone is free to do what spins their top. It's their car and their money. Doesn't mean anyone else will like it. Doesn't mean other people can't crap on it in internet forums.

Personally I thought this was the best pic from the Kinod pic site.

That red car missing the fenders and hood just needs a set of Frog Arms to really look good. The bright green would set that off nicely.

Damn, you guys are pretty critical. It's really all about what people like. A lot of those KINOD guys don't track their cars, and just like making them look nice; So things like wheel weight and camber really don't play a huge role in their decisions. A lot of those kinod guys are really cool and knowleadgable, granted...some are not, but they are all learning. And with urban, the green car is his daily, he also has a red turbo na that he tracks...and he's a damn good driver.

Peter likes to make his car's look "clean", by tucking wires, tires, and such. So what if he likes the Hood Ride look, on some cars it looks really ******* cool and unique. Everyone likes their own type of shiz, I really don't think they need to be ripped apart on an internet forum about it. I would not even come close to refering to the kinod guys' cars as rice, because they are far from that.
