There's a complete turbo kit on eBay for $600. Can I run 20 PSI with it? I'm aiming for 375 WHP. I'm hoping that's enough power for easy drifting, right now I can't break my rear 17's loose AT ALL. But it sure looks good slammed on my Stance coilovers.

Holy crap. Sarcasm and a complete grasp of why newbs get hammered. Could have been the best 44th post ever if you'd used Raceland instead of Stance!

On a loca forum here, he do a thing called "Ban Fridays. This is where the mods put up a poll with several members that they think are worth of getting a weekend vacation from the forum, then all the members vote who gets the boot for the weekend.

I think we should do this

Needs more self-righteousness and Sportmaxx, but you're on the right track.

Thanks for the advice, but I'm going to disregard what you've said and just go with my own plan anyway.

I would like to know where I can buy a JDM style bar for street racing application.

If this becomes tradition I will gladly pay $4.00/month.

I'd race you but my boost controller isn't working. I'm only on low boost.

interesting.

mandatory 3 bans per friday? you can volunteer or do it democratically? this could shape up nicely. maybe only paid members and people with over 2500 posts get to vote to keep it elitist?

btw, mgeoffriau... you're still a n00b.

Would this require a dedicated section, or a sticky thread? 3 a week sounds good. I can imagine a lot of us probably need a break from time to time. What would the rules about how often you can be banned? Once per month, or every 8 or 12 weeks, or something. Or maybe there should be a competition for the bans. Some kind of game or along that line.
