@JDMized just an fyi, to prevent future misuse, the right to free speech applies to speaking out against the government. it does not specifically allow you to slander or libel private individuals, nor does it grant freedom to 'talk smack'.

@Brad_S to be competitive costs alot of money. which is why you don't see grassroots at the top tier of D1.
that royal crown feels like a precursor to the VIP scene. very cool stuff, thanks for the coverage!

@JoeWhaler well, considering that most of the people voting here are petrol-heads, and not really representative of the larger car buying market, I wouldn't be surprised if the percentage was lower than 50%. I know full on grown ass adults who can't even drive a manual transmission, let alone consider buying a car with one.

@Itchys2 well, high end cars aren't really built with the idea that enthusiasts are going to be working on the transmission in their garages. and cheaper isn't really a concern unfortunately. I think it's going to come down to what the market demands. do car new car buyers want fun cars or just faster cars?
having owned a series of resonably quick but VERY fun cars, I can say that a manual transmission makes every car more fun to drive. it's more of an experience. with the new technology, you're basically sitting in the car, aiming it the direction you want to go. the only 'real' sensory experience you get is visual and the feeling of G-forces.but, for example, consider something like a built datsun 510. You can drive the speed limit in those things and it's a blast hahaha. the manual steering is fighting you, the suspension reacts to every mistake you make, the engine cries from abuse, the manual brakes require your full attention, the gear box is unforgiving, it's smells like exhaust inside the car, and the back of the car is coming around sooner than you anticipated. that sort of hyper visceral experience will always be worth more to me than simply aiming a car through a series of straights and turns.
for a sub compact city car it's got a nice profile. would this be on par with japanese kei cars?

@speedhunters_dino although i guess that motor is pretty much operating at a very small RPM range, and the simplicity of properly jetted carbs might outweigh the performance gains of EFI in a race setting, when one considers pitstops and failures.
