Bio not provided
I have to say for me this is tough. I really have a soft spot for the early cars now and have been very lucky to drive quite a few different models. I love the old mechanical feel and the soul that older cars have. With the newer stuff it is at a point where things are to refined and dare I say maybe to fast. To me it seems there is more enjoyment to be had with the older cars. Have driven some newer models but never a GT3 so not sure what it is actually like but it is hands down my favorite of any super car out there. It just ticks all the right box's.
For me if money was not a decider I would have to go with a Singer 911. It just has all the correct things I want with the ability to chase a GT3 around. Now add some RWB into the mix and I am all in lol. Great article.

@Speedhunters_Bryn @BradLord @zackspeed333 Having owned a few FB chassis myself I have to say they are one heck of a machine. Growing up seeing the cars race in IMSA and the Camel series makes this story really hit home. Always wanted a RX3 and almost had a SP version but was not to be I guess.

Very good article and hope more is found out. There was a all red RX3 in JTCC in 72. It was a small fender car but that would line up with the pics of the silver one. Have a feeling the fat flares where put on the car after it was brought to the states. I would also think the four link was done once it was here as well. I really hope you have a story coming for the SA22.

Awesome stuff. The GTR is such a beast and they sound so good when they have been tinkered with.

I am going with other for the Ferrari 288gto which was intended for Group B and its road racing variant class. It was also the car the spawned the super car era, To be honest though all of these cars should get a vote as they all brought something to the game. That has greatly fueled our car world over the years.

I love the concept but to me it still needs some work. Rather than 510 I think they should look more towards the original Silvia for inspiration. This concept with a more flowing design would be a home run.

@DOHC_LOL The push-rod engine is the most non efficient engine ever produced. Funny thing is at one point most Nascar qualifying engines had Honda rods and pistons lol. I for one am sick of seeing LS engines in everything just because its the cheapest thing out there. If you want to talk V8's then what about the Hyabusa derived one. At half the size it makes 500hp and quite a bit of torque. The best part its efficient and revs to the moon.

I love my Ferrari's to be pure but you fools are crazy not to like this thing. This car is full of win from every angle. Very few tuners have done a Ferrari correctly and this is for sure one of them.

Waist of resource. The Sesto was awesome but this is just some ugly Hot Wheels car.

@Turbo BEAMS ae86 @MattJaz The rotary is not gone folks. Mazda came out and said that a few months back and are supposed to show it soon. I would expect it to show up around the end of the year. Emissions have not been Mazda's issue but rather fuel consumption and reliability.
WOW WOW WOW This is sick.! I really like the Rocket Bunny style but man he out did himself this time. Simply amazing.

Well for one Alonso is still under contract for three more seasons. So who ever he went to would have to pay out a large sum and quite frankly no team can do it and stay in budget. Secondly I would not put allot into the whole Ferrari engine being that far off. Ferrari are known for spreading false rumors about stuff like this.
My question is what will happen when team orders are called?? Neither Kimi nor Alfonso like to listen and I can see those two really going at each other at some point.
As for the rules change next season while being significant is still not that big of a change. Allot of the chassis and aero will stay much the same only producing less down force initially I bet. One hot topic has been the increase in weight and reduction in ballast. The taller drivers are saying its a instant disadvantage to them. Those drivers cant reach the same weight as a Vettel or Massa and not risk their health. One thing for sure is it should be the most competitive field since the end of the 70's. Quite a few strong teams these days. Red Bull, Mercedes, Sauber, Ferrari, Mclaren, and Lotus look very strong. Anyone of these teams can win races next year.
I want to know who will end up at Sauber next year. It looks like Hulk will go to Lotus and I am betting Massa goes back to Sauber.

Looks really good. It is funny how small the world is sometimes and for you to run into a old owner who built stuff for it is pretty awesome.

Man that is just amazing. Will be nice to see how it turns out. On a side note whats up with a feature on the old Yamoto Civic. There is some old footage from the 80's on youtube and it was killing the Sunny's and Starlet's at Fuji.
Volvo 850R wagon. Volvo won every big touring car series with that thing and it was a wagon lol.
