Wow, where to begin.  That duck tail spoiler is 909 enough, but the cheesy aftermarket wing?  Eesh.  I hate to use this word, but the whole car just screams CORNY

@speedhunters_dino @SeanStott You got to see it first hand, so I believe my impression could be wrong.  I've been swayed before by how pictures look vs. reality ('14 Corvette comes to mind).

Never realized how lame TE37s look on a 911.  


That 458 is awesome.

How does widening the rear to such an extent affect handling?  There's got to be a ton of compromises.  ?

Is it racing?  Absolutely not.


Is it a competition?  Just as much as car show trophies are.


Is it fun?  Absolutely.

@mbretschneider @SeanStott I feel like factory cores are usually thinner.  


I'm in the same boat as you though.  I have a front mount intercooler, and the inlet/outlet exit in the front of it.  This means I have to fit a radiator between the inlet/outlet, and severely narrowed my options.  I had to go with something around 18" square, but it's a double row aluminum unit.  Should be adequate for how I use my car. 


The first thing you want to optimize is core and tube/fin design, which usually means choosing aluminum over copper (even though copper is better heat conductor).  From there, you want to get as big of a surface area as possible for maximum efficiency.  Then, go thicker as needed.  The problem with going too thick is that you start to have too much thickness for higher speed ram-air cooling.  Figure you might have as much as an air-to-air intercooler, A/C condenser, oil cooler, and radiator all in a row.

is a SLA setup completely superior to macpherson?  how do Porsche and the FR-S get by with it, while cars like the Dodge Charger that have a true SLA setup aren't touted as excellent-handling cars?

 @RBO please, get over it.

 

you can get a full set of rota grids for less than the price of 1 volk wheel.  the quality is comparable in 99% of situations.  there are tons of instances of bent volks, it's not like they are indestructible compared to the knockoffs.  

 

many people aren't in a position to drop $3500 for wheels when a near identical product can be had for something like $600.

honestly TE37s have jumped the shark.

 

the embossing between each spoke on the lip is way overkill, and so is the engraved logo on the spokes.  i always kind of laughed at people who kept the decals on the spokes, it's mad corny, but now they have no choice!

i like mixing styles.  i have an 84 mustang svo, with some jdm touches and products.  there are unique pros to each scene, and the best part is taking your own unique interpretation and melding them together.

i don't have a problem with them simply buying the car, or questioned whether or not they're an enthusiast (if you can't wrench on your own car, you're not an enthusiast by the way)

 

the issue is that these brand new cars crowd all the car shows.  that's my gripe - i go to ford shows and see hundreds of 2005+ mustangs.  or nissan/datsun shows and there are nothing but new GT-Rs.  i see three on the way to work everyday.  i know it's a cool car, but what's the difference between that and a new Altima?  i'd rather see customized 90s Altimas than a brand new GT-R.  at Cars&Coffee in irvine, it's nothing but new 911s, new lamborghinis, and new GT-Rs.  

 

maybe it's becuse i work for an automotive related firm and get to drive many of those cars, but they bore me to death compared to other stuff that's out there.

it's like when you go to a ford or mustang show and all you see is rows upon rows of 2005+ new mustangs.  cool story bro, you opened your checkbook and bought a car.  not really interesting when i can go see your car at any nissan dealer.
