Simple question, Bryn:


Would you have a Caterham (or any other Lotus Seven-like, maybe with some basic conforts like a hardtop and A/C) as a daily driver?

@Iamthetrollhunter That may be a joke post (no body panels?) but do you realize that would be a true show-stopper? A FR-S with a freight engine would certainly turn some heads...

@kphillips9936 @D1RGE EXE The point is that you can use the airbags to "slam" the car when it's stopped and then go back to a regular height for driving.

"One thing that gets me about the negativity on V8 swaps is the lack of understanding of just how much work it actually takes to get it to work well. Before you even get to the headache that wiring and wiring looms can present, you need to consider chassis modifications to accept the engine, mounts for the motor itself, gearbox choice and the adaptation needed to the driveline to make it all fit and line up."

Maybe you could help with that? Why not have an educational article about the difficulties of doing a V8 swap? Show the readers WHY it's not easy. They get that it's a practical and reliable way to get power, but they may not get that's it's more complicated than

1) take old engine out 

2) put new engine in 

3) connect some tubes 

4) HORSEPOWER YAY!

" Sondre and his dad estimate this set-up to be making around 2000hp-plus. Yes, you read that right!

It’s street legal too, and other than a full cage and Sparco bucket seats, the original Granada Ghia interior is still all intact"

I think we need a new motto. Because Gatebil is not bad, but I think Because Scandinavia or Because Nordics is necessary for things like this. 2000hp street-legal car? Because Scandinavia!

"Which is when Ben happened upon quite possibly the best person in the world at that exact moment. She went by the name of ‘Agent Lillian’ and after a couple of tired English guys did a stupid dance (voluntarily I might add) and made her laugh, she upgraded our hastily reserved booking of a Ford Focus…To a Dodge RT Challenger! Did that just happen? Really? What, that one outside? I scanned my license and we collected the keys."

"I won’t be attending Gatebil Rudskogen next month, because around the same time I will become a father. Which, of course, is just one of the few things more important than hunting speed. So, if I thought my over-shooting was bad while at work, I suspect it’s going to become even more of a problem at home when my baby arrives. More pictures of the kid the better, right?"

I think the "problem" is that the rims are a bit too big.


Also, isn't ironic to modify a part of an automobile (a machine designed to move under it's own power) so the effect is only visible when it's NOT moving at all (air suspension)?

I think you could sum up how crazy-ass Group B was with two pieces of data:

Yep, that's over 750hp from a mildly upgraded 2.1 liter turbo four-pot.

@Max_Ryde And the movie it "inspired", 24 Hours (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0307156/)

 It has a simple plot (good guy in blue cars, very bad guys in red cars), ridiculous scenes (protagonist driving blindfolded and scaring the shit out of the passanger, LeMans prototypes driving on the highway racing against the clock to enter qualifying) and a typical movie-style race finish where the good guys make a comeback and win by inches.
