@AndyEineichner how does a performance version of a hot hatch lend itself to be a sleeper? On top of the fact that they are not exactly fast.
I would say any of the Audi wagons new or old- e63 AMG wagon, CTSV wagon- basically anything wagon related. B5 s4s as well, most people see an 4 door luxury car- but with an exhaust and tune you see 300awhp/tq and have a cruise missle of a car

Take chances is one thing- continually trying to shoot gaps where the only real pass was forcing the other driver not to wreck is another, and he pays the price, Kimi said not today and toasted perez's car. Kimi on the other hand has to repair his car and lose championship points because someone wants to be a badass. Senna would make amazing passes in clean spaces, whereas Perez was saying lets both wreck if you try to defend. The real clean great passes IMO of the GP were from Satil in the Force India car. Going into the Fairmont hairpin he was making some great clean dives down the inside.

Fantastic KOH coverage. I like KOH because it takes the best of rock-crawling, and mixes it with the best of off-road racing, into one big event. You get to see them haul ass across the desert, as well as climb some real technical routes. As a die hard speed freak I also enjoy spending a day in the woods with friends in their rigs and jeeps. The most fun you can have under 20mph thats for sure.

watching drive yesterday discuss should you buy a new toyaburu or a low mileage e46 m3, easy answer for me, but another car they brought up is the elise, which used you can get for much cheaper than a toyaburu, and is a much better handling/looking car with a better power to weight ratio, and the motor is built like a tank and cheap to fix.

@TomHoward @ComJive @Hanma Oh yeah, lets compare a motor that costs well over 15k and is hand-built, with a LT1, which one can find for under 3k easily, and is mass produced. Based on your logic lets take a typical sprint car motor, all motor and over 800 hp using OHV, yeah its over $25k but who cares because the origonal comparison is one of the dumbest things I have ever witnessed. Comparing a motor that is used in tahoes with a $200k supercar motor

@ToneDiez Started 43rd and finished 5th? in its second race ever, against cars with double the horsepower, and had the 2nd fastest lap, behind a rebellion racing monster with 640hp. Id say thats a pretty good start to a program if you ask me.

This is an easy answer, Deltawing all day. The fact that it can hold its own with cars that have 2 times the power, and in its first year of competition. Give it a bump to even 400 and it would be blowing away some of the best P1 cars out there. It represents the cutting edge. The R18 is a close second for me, the turbocharger setup represents the future of lag free massive power in vehicles.
I dont know if it was in the article but this r8 is stassis supercharged as well, over 700 hp

What people don't realize about the box is that he really does use the thing. He put 18,000 miles on his gallardo drving back and forth between events in 11 months. He also has a GTR and a Ultima GTR with a twin turbo v8 that is his track toy, this guy is living the dream, super cars, homes all over europe, and he is one of my heros in newschool skiing. Jon is the fucking man
The picture of forsbergs 370 is amazing. Normally people say the car spit flames, that looks more like afterburners to me.
