@turbo BEAMS ae86 @Option13 No, and there are plenty of other people using plenty of other engines with stacks. Changing the oil just gets rid of the dirt after it has already made it past the piston rings and the bore, doing damage along the way. Something fly into your stack? best hope it doesn't get under a valve or between the head and the piston.
If an air filter is that restrictive, you need a bigger air filter. Sealing a box around the velocity stacks and putting a large panel filter in isn't that difficult.

Why oh why can't more feature cars run air filters. It ruins the whole engine bay for me. Sure, it looks great, but I like keeping my engines running in top shape.Do any of these guys showing off stacks have some sort of filter to cover them that they just remove for shows and shoots?

@Rytt Because that's what Speedhunters wanted to cover, apparently. I've read nowhere near as much mention of it elsewhere.

So nice to see a widened car without rivets.
The Starlets overfenders are TRD items, really cool.

@wheatgod @apex_DNA At this point it's clear you're either an absolute idiot or a troll. I mean really, if it's what you're trying to do, you're doing a great job.

@In4theaction The 1996 Corvette Grand Sport had overfenders on the rear from the factory. It's not like the Japanese invented overfenders.
@wheatgod @Option13 @Hotcakes And you call other people trolls? Pot calling the kettle black I see.

@wheatgod @Hotcakes If American Hot Rods got the kind of coverage that LB, RWB, etc received, you bet I'd be complaining about featuring 3 identically modified cars. But literally no other country gets the kind of worship on here that Japan does.

http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/11/not-afraid-to-shock-liberty-walk-458/I'm sorry, what were you saying? That was less than a week ago.
Honest question, and it's going to be offensive. Is he paying y'all for advertising? Because these cars are all the same - all grey, all with bolt on flares with cutouts in front of the front tire, and all with the same stance. The biggest difference is the wing. You say you take pride in bringing us different cars from around the globe but park all of these side by side and most modifications are as visually identical as can be on cars from opposite sides of the globe.There are so many people pumping out new and interesting cars. Why does he get so much coverage?
@Jezza k If reasoned discussion in a negative fashion reeks of butthurt, then I guess the shoe fits. There are by and large two camps on this site, the show haters and the show hater-haters, the people get way too touchy about things and vehemently defend a car as if god himself touched it with his noodly appendage. What reeks of it, may I ask? The "I don't care"? The "I'm dissapointed"? "Doesn't do anything for me"? It's like you can't ever say anything negative without someone coming in and over reacting. I'm tired of people telling me I either love it or hate it. That and "oozes presence" are applied to half the cars on this site. It's like you can't even have a discussion anymore.

I'll say it, I don't like it. This is the same standard treatment we see on a lot of Japanese cars now, bolt on flares and a ducktail. The stock car is curvaceous and some people would call it sexy, but it doesn't really do anything for me. So I'm hardly upset over the "destruction" of a Ferrari. I don't see any new ideas or innovation, just applying the same old trends that they do to a 240SX or any other inexpensive car (or a GTR for that matter) to a much more capable and expensive exotic. It isn't even shocking, rather, the complete opposite. It's utterly predictable. This is exactly what I expect from these guys. The same old ideas on any car, no matter the price or style of the car, and expecting me to be amazed and "love it or hate it". Instead, I just don't care for it. Their money, their tastes, and it's hardly like they are destroying a classic. I find their taste in cars bad, but you won't see me getting butthurt about it. I am disappointed though that so many people are so in love with this thing.
@PaddyMcGrath @alejoush We just want to see him win in a car that isn't utterly dominant. 4 years of gapping the field in a car that other cars occasionally come close to or match. His talent is undeniable, he has incredible pace. He should be a world champion. I just cannot believe 4 world championships have come mostly on his merit. Schumacher too had everything in his favor when he won, but in his admittedly lackluster return, you could see he still had all the racecraft he ever did, if not the outright pace. Vettels wins are almost always delivered without on track battles or significant challenges. At Suzuka this year his form was utterly unremarkable compared to his usual very smooth laps, and that was one of the few times he was under pressure this season. He had off track excursions and didn't look like a 4 time world champ. I'd rather watch Kimi or Alonso charge through the field than Vettel lead every lap. They thrive under pressure, Vettel wavers.

@Mike Garrett A lot of the events you guys do cover are in Japan. It's refreshing to see an American event being covered!

I'm sure Kimi would love to give Vettel some driving lessons if RBR isn't just looking for another #2 driver.

@Big Pooky Saying you like Ferrari's is like saying you like breathing, we all know why. It's a perfectly valid opinion, but perfectly boring as well.
