@wheatgod @varilightThe style sir, the style.
Is it just me or the camber looks more excessive on the first frontal picture then all the others. Also how can you discount an entire suspension setup because of what you assume to be too much negative camber?

@wheatgod Stickers, subjective to taste. I think it fits well with his idea of building an 86 Touge machine. Goofy suspension? Please explain.
It looks pretty sweet except that rear camber/fitment, its just too much.

@Seriously @HachiRocker @NicholasMaher By your definition many other disciplines are not "sports". The whole gymnastics umbrella is pretty much wiped out according to your definition and personally i think your definition is incorrect.

Whilst the copper plating is cool, I'll always associate it with PBM's products first as it is their signature colour (along with gold).

@DJ_Manila As a long time fan of the Equip 03's I agree there is some similarity there however they are MUCH closer to the SSR MK III's. As they are inspired by AME's old line who knows which came first however I still stand by my comment they look terrible.

Those Fatlace F/Zero 2's look like a poor colour choice of SSR MK3's.
So it's no longer 4WD?

For Dino - RWB is primarily a body shop yes? So what preparations are needed for his customers cars when they are already finished? (Unless they've broken some body parts).

Will KW ever offer anything for the old AE86? Or is this not going to happen because of the smaller market share of AE owners and the more expensive development (new stub axles and what not)?
Cool! I just recently bought the same rims in the bronze colour but in 14x9 -22. I can't wait to throw them on as well!

@Ryanfels While possible, what's the point? (I also very much doubt that's what this owner has done) D2's are a rubbish china spec coilover. The people who buy them usually fall into three categories.
1 - Uninformed buyer who thinks they're good.
2 - Cheap people
3 - People looking to slam their car.

@EricJMiller @Mandrino For a regular car, hey why not? But for a sportscar a regular manual transmission should at LEAST be an option. Also drinking a beverage or eating with a manual isn't difficult.

@Johnjusto While you fully entitled to your preference of other disciplines of Motorsport, calling drift B grade is an insult to all the top drivers out there and the skills which they possess.
Looks great as usual, shame about the lack of manual. Guess that's how it's gonna be these days...

@TarikLaaraj I'm not a huge fan of the 370 but you are aware of the huuuuge price disparity between these two cars right?
@andrewhake Oh really? Can I feed in the clutch as I please? Can I dump it? Can I feather it? Can I kick it like its going out of fashion? Sure I understand tech is quicker but for a sportscar there has to be a manual option. You feel part of the car, your controlling it. I like feeling that without me the car could not operate.
No competition the DC2R.

@somebodysb2 @that4AGsound A brilliant car, which I didn't know existed however I doubt the domination.
1 year, 4 months ago on So Fwd Is Boring, Huh?
@somebodysb2 isn't that because the lack of entries of RWD?
@ylee I think a lot of the "haters" are just saying comparatively that FWD is boring compared to the other layouts.
@goon It probably is your driving then because I can't think of any RWD cars which have "terminal oversteer" at low speeds. Also the examples you give are not very relatable as who would compare these rather mundane acts in different drivetrain layouts?
Up to a certain power limit FWD is just as competitive as any other drivetrain layout. However I can't think of many people who would go out of their way and choose a FWD over the others.
I think the world needs video of the S20 and that TC24.

@apex_DNA Well it seems we won't ever agree. Just a few last comments. Maybe I am spoiled I expect better and have certainly seen better from the Speedhunters staff and if this were in a magazine I for one wouldn't buy it.
1 year, 5 months ago on Acura Legend, The Bolsa Coffee Shop Cruiser
@apex_DNA By what you've said then my car is almost worthy of a feature then! Lol. One of my main points of contention is that no where did Charles or Sean mention any restoration of the Legend at all. There's no history. To me it was simply choosing an old car slapping on some old rims and accessories and Bam done. As I've said before not saying the car isn't nice, I'm just stating that compared to the other caliber of builds on SH this just doesn't stack up.
@apex_DNA What does my favourite RWD have anything to do with this discussion at all? I would have said the exact same thing if it was an AE86.
@PatRicK_13 @Acc The AE86 is so deeply entrenched in car culture it's not funny. I admit comparing it to cars like the 959 is stupid however when compared to other affordable performance cars of the 80's (205 Gti,mk 2 gti) it more than holds its own. Also the AE86 didn't suddenly become popular it was a hit from release.

@that4AGsound I would weep if Dino put D2's on his GT-R. Such bad "coilovers".
1 year, 5 months ago on Gt-r Dreams: Dino’s R34 Skyline Gt-r Project
Not really a fair poll at all due to some being unobtainable to but a very few.
Anyways as much as I love the AE86 it has to be the F40.
Sidenote - As much as I respect the Ford Cosworth Sierra RS I just can't stomach the styling.
@sean klingelhoefer @varilight @bigeastbay Which was goes back to what I originally said. Nice enough car i guess but worthy of a feature? No. Maybe a snapshot.
@bigeastbay I respect cars which aren't even my style if there is some reasonable work done to it.
This is essentially a lowered old legend on rare rims. Whoa slow down on the ingenuity there!
Not worthy of a feature at all.

@GeorgeKrapivko I don't know what type of group of Honda people you hang around but as apex_DNA said most Honda owners don't think that, and so what some Honda owners like using BBS rims, does that mean because I've seen some VW cars with Rays/Weds/Work wheels that they're copying Honda? No.
