Bio not provided
Are you a "driver", or a "winner"? For those who like to drive, and enjoy the sensation, the choice is obviously the older car. For those who wear their Porsche as a penis extension (most), to make them feel powerful and successful - their choice is just as obvious. Most newer Porsches have speed and power to win races, but they will never be driven above 6/10's their ability. Their only taste of rev limiter will happen from a stoplight in 1st gear, when cutting in front of SUV's on the way to Starbucks. New Porsches are simply too powerful and refined to be of use on the street, and their owners too cowardly to track them properly. So yeah. The classic one.

Perfect car, and perfect build. Nothing is more mental than steering a fwd around a track by sliding the rear, and I've never had more fun than I had at Laguna Seca, passing many expensive rwd sports cars in a little $5k Honda hatchback.

I don't know you, and therefore my words can't possibly be personal to you. I hope you will understand the damage that comes from doing good work for free?
Companies will just outsource work when they get the chance, and "downsize" or "rightsize" their teams - meaning good people get fired so you can build a rep. You get ripped off. Experts go broke. Companies look for more stupid spec monkeys to rip off.
happens every day.

Good Job Matt & Ivan! Glad to see the real builders get credit on this one, even if Bieber still gets the headlines.

"no need for fancy aero on the street" - Don't you even realize your conformist fascism? Do you really want everybody to drive a Prius?
There's NO need for ANY sports car on the street either. Most truck owners don't need a truck. A Prius would get better gas mileage, would be more quiet - why not take your fool logic one step further, and just say "everybody in the whole world should drive X" ?.
In Nazi Germany, you would've goose-stepped right along with all the other robots, and whoever you are, I truly despise your tiny mind.
I love seeing wacky cars with giant wings, bright graphics and funny doors! WHY NOT!? What does it hurt??? Fast&Furious? OK!!! Do you think you're somehow better? Keep telling yourself that.
So called 'rice-bashing' is just a group of cowards and bullies pretending to be car enthusiasts, and hoping their vain attempts at diminishing others will somehow raise their status.
Anyone dressing up their car with aero on the street has more balls than you.
If you want to put someone else down, use your fists, and leave cars out of it.

Almost every successful paid person, feels that anybody who offers to work for free (for someone else) simply isn't any good. If you'll work for free anyway, and think you're good, then start your own blog! If your blog gets noticed - well then you are good!
How would YOU feel as a paid photog, if some kid said "I want your job so bad, I'll work for no money"? You'd be like "man, eff this mo+h3rfuck€r!"
I work in design, and lots of kids try to get in with promises of 'free work', but there's no bigger turn off, than someone who's willing to devalue my hard earned position by whoring themselves out without pay!
Face the fact that if your work was truly great, you would've been called by someone.
I won't even look at a resume from anybody willing to work for free, and my first job as a paid intern, was to throw away the 3000 resumes that weren't me.
Stop giving out your loser advice, and work for whatever you want until you're too good to be missed.

Fantastic kit. Brilliant wheels. Every BR-Z/86 should come with these flares and the turbo motor. Spray the taillights red, put in copper head gaskets, equal length manifold and cat delete, fmic, and you've got the perfect track daily.

Still a couple more years til we can import Cossies into the U.S.... Truly despise Mercedes Benz for buying off legislators on the gray import ban fascism.
Hipster kids just want to sound smart, and look for something to pick on. Lots of very strong structures are held together with bolts. The bolt-in in my Miata was strong enough to pick up the entire car with it. I've seen a bolt-in cage save a guy's life at Laguna seca too.

@reginald_reginald "That car is messed up, because it's not as good as it could be!!". blah blah blah. "Even though my car isn't on SH, I'm the super-ultimate excellence-guru, and the car in my head is better than that car!" blah blah. there. I feel more clever now, that I told that guy who built a car, how much better the car is in my head - that I never built.

Subaru & Mitsubishi tried very hard to give ACTUAL rally cars to enthusiasts. Unfortunately, Ford, Peugeot & Citroen forced rules changes, turning WRC into NASCAR, with fake kit cars built by small racing firms. True rally fans have Subaru and/or DSM in their driveway, even those cheering for Loeb.

The Audi is an amazing car, but if the voters ever heard & felt a Lancia Rally 037 rumble by, they'd know it's something different. A Kevlar hand grenade - Dangerous beyond measure. The Lancia was the demon of Gruppe B, that needed to be killed.

You honestly think poor people don't work hard!? I dare you to pick lettuce for a week. I bet you couldn't. You couldn't do construction either. The poor lady working nights at Jack in the Box? Poor people work MUCH harder than wealthy people. Your world would come to a screeching halt if all the nice folks you call "losers" actually stopped working. Janitors, food workers, factory workers. 99% of poor people work damn hard. You focusing on the 1% who are actually lazy, shows just how naive, ignorant, and immature you are. And yes, a punk like you has NO right telling anybody to 'get a job'.

What we can certainly 'comprende', from your egomaniacal rant, is profound elitism, and self aggrandizement at the expense of others. Also proof of the terribly narcissistic view of many online trolls, exemplifying the shameful nature of the term 'ricer'. Thinking you are somehow helping the world become more tasteful by trying to shame others is delusional, and a fascist notion. Poor people are neither dysfunctional nor stupid, and you have no place trying to shame anyone. If you were honest about it, you'd admit that you just like feeling "right".
"ricer" is just poor-shaming using cars. Every kid buying wings and mufflers just wanted a cool car, but Americans hate poor people. Poor white guy with a truck = inbred hillbilly goat f#ck3r. Poor while black = n!gg3r. Poor with race car = ricer. Shameful phrases that show the true face of capitalism.
People try to challenge the logic of "dumping" $10k on an old car, but don't bat an eyelash at squandering $50k on a new car. Personally, I don't understand spending lots of money on a new, stock auto.

Your vain attempts at wealth work against the beautiful feeling of earning it. No purchased glory comes close to the sensation of a machine you can't afford - dumping your last dollar into an unattainable goal, and getting away with it. Kurumania belongs to the poor. To the true wanters and believers. Like buying sex, rich kids will always wonder if they would be fast without money. Speedhunters, like every other beautiful thing, has become 'property' of the rich. But... You'll never know the beauty of having spent your last dollar to make the track. The rush that only honest love for speed can produce when at your last. The feeling of scrubbing a wheel when you can't afford another. Limits provide their own exuberance. Fakery runs out. Someday, there's gonna be reconciliation.

Bakayorou ! Thinking that car-love only applies to the wealthy, is the bane of true kurumania. I hope you die of a painful cancer.
People love cars, or they don't. Anybody who loves a car enough to bolt on over fenders, widen the tires, and race it around a track is good by me. Anybody who gives flack to those true enthusiasts is my sworn enemy.
