I can drive like that! I just cannot afford to anymore.

Our budget has been significantly cut since the economy hit the toilet and my "car/tire destruction budget" had to get nixed.

Man, great skill, but that is just down right annoying to listen to.....sounds like a friggin pissed off bee. The extreme pussification of America is losing the sound of power :smiley_depressive:

I usually agree but that is not pussification power. 650 hp 660 ft/lbs of torque (850hp without the restricter plate) is nothing to blink at... that is Hennessey Viper HP!

That thing reminds me of driving a good R/C car. The hp to wieght ratio is crazy.

What do you mean Flute? You can't do that? Get out there in the snow and learn something.. Dang.. lol .....I miss my Z :(....
I miss my RX-7 (huge single turbo, intercooler, custom headers, dual rotors, etc....) with 483 BHP and my 1999 Mustang Cobra SVT (actually a GT that Lee Howie put in a custom turbo, headers, computer, fuel injectors, etc...) 578 BHP with 22lbs of boost. There are a couple of others in there also that are missed.

If I were to purchase a new "go fast" car it would be the four door Pontiac G8 GXP. I can still haul the kids around and it comes with 415 hp but can easilly be made to get 600+ hp.

Been, no arguement of awesome power....it's just the sound! Nice builds on both of those past cars, they had to be fun to drive!

It's all about high speed low drag, just prefer to hear a NASCAR over an Indy car all day long

I agree about a low sound. The RX sounded like a Stihl on steriods. The Mustang was a nice mix of alto and tenor. The 3 inch catbacks sounded nice with the high pitch whistle of the turbo.

For those of you who have played Grand Turismo and heard the turbos whine and chuck...they really do that on the big ones.

Been that gxp is rediculous. On a tight budget that car can smoke most anything on the road. I drove the gto and thought it was fast. The g8 is crazy.

Holden makes awesome cars. I was pretty happy to see their designs come to america.
