It's one thing to meet Larry Chen, but to meet another certified legend, THE Dino Dalle Carbonare, I can't pass that up. See you guys Sunday! (PS, I hope you don't take that the wrong way Larry, lol.)

Larry, I see you really appreciate a smoking bowl... at Wall Speedway. Me too! Okay, back to my other "smoking bowl." :D

"Would you like to see a spotlight on it?" WTF Dino, like, YES. Is it fun having your girlfriend scream your name in bed even when you're not doing anything to her, and she's doing it all herself? YES.

 @Can_Domo_Drift Dry ice for removing sound deadening and such. Yes, Sean's beard might look rock 'n roll, but I'm sure he's more than sensible to not have to smoke up his car a'la rock show. That's why we close the windows and chamber. :)

Everything looks so great, but something about that clean, mid-2000's, one color clean body drift car look that still has a spot in my heart. DRIFT FOCUSED POST THIS YEAR, PLEASE. (And thank you, lol.)

 @Glubags I must say, I also have I-Type-Like-A-God-When-I'm-Drunk-itis.

 

My friends are always impressed I can type well when I'm drunk, but it's really a curse. I can't call someone a "dirty c-word" when I'm drunk cause they always think I'm serious about it. Sad life.

 

Anyway, cheers, that was really well written for being drunk, lol.

Actually, if you look behind the PanSpeed RX8, (the yellow one,) you can see the PanSpeed RX7 parked right behind it, lol.

 

I know, I really had to look for one, haha.

 @speedhunters_dino  @Absolution  @HighPerformanceTrucks.com So theoretically, the BR-Z and other cars can also go paddles if they do whatever the SLS does?Meh, Politics.

 @HighPerformanceTrucks.com That's what I thought. Touching back into the BR-Z article you did, Dino, you did state the reason why the it had the big stick in the middle was because it wasn't allowed to have electronically shifted transmissions, which is what the SLS here has. Any insight as to why this car might have been given an exemption?

Funny, I sat around with my friends tonight talking about this. While we talked about engine swaps, the pattern seemed to be RB26/13B/SR20/2JZ + anything was instant win, but an LSx into anything, (which, sorry guys, is pretty good) is ridiculous. We all know the parameters, the benefits, but this is the "religious"-style debate among cars where the rules of religion apply here; "do what you do, but stay out of my business" kind-of-deals.

 

Honestly, if it makes sense to you, do so with the means that you have to do it and don't let anyone tell you different. I'd like to see anyone walk up to Matt Powers or Joon Maeng and tell them how bad their cars perform or how little sense dropping the lightweight V8 into a lightweight chassis is. But no, we drop in a "bulletproof" iron-block xJZ motor, throw off the weight balance and blow it with 900 hp, suddenly we've got a higher quality build than the LS.

 

If this seems like it's running off on random tangents, my bad, lol. I'm just still really hyped that my friends wouldn't listen to reason.
