For anyone who's featured, how did you start on the long road of learning to fabricate?
I'm about to buy my first welder and give it a crack.
Also: Got sound of the 8-1 headers?

I would give a lot to be able to sit in the driver's chair with the nose pointed down a drag strip. This is great

Shaved bolts are becoming a thing! Yes! Now make them out of metal and you're on a winner

I haven't researched this at all, but is there a way to run antilag without it eating turbos all the time?

Mate that looks the absolute tits. Hats off to you.
Now it needs bigger turbos and more skids :)

1 month, 1 week ago on Nostalgic Attack: A 20B Turbo S30Z
@Speedhunters Yeah, people obviously do want to see it, I know that.
But that's just my point of view, for what it's worth. I figured it'd be better to actually write up something that explains why, rather than just LOL LIBERTY WALK SUX and whatever other drivel some people post.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on The Craziest Sounding Street Car Ever?
@Taryn Croucher That is true, but I know what he means.
If I wanted to see Liberty Walk stuff I'd go to other mainstream sites that have some pretty pictures.
I come to Speedhunters because you guys seem to have a talent that nobody else does for finding the batshit insane backyard builds. The guys that spend a decade refining a car in their shed to be absolutely insane.
That's the sort of stuff that I want features on.
I absolutely do realise that you can't find enough of that sort of thing to fill the pages, and so other interesting enthusiast type things like race reports and the like are totally appreciated.
But as stupid as it seems to type this, this kind of thing where they take a car, do something for the sake of being polarising and then proclaim to the world that they're pushing the boundaries, does not appeal to me at all.
Now bear in mind that it is nearly 1am and I'm sleep deprived so this might not make sense.
This is awesome. Thanks for letting us see this stuff.
What's the Top 10 website, by the way? Just out of interest

It's amazing seeing how much the Gallardo changed between its first release models and the last special editions in terms of aesthetics.
I, for one, can't wait to see what it looks like with the customary wings and diffusers that they'll add further on into its lifespan.
It already looks great, and judging by the video that shows it's about as fast to 300km/h as the Aventador, it performs very well as well.

That Evo VI is gorgeous.
The laws seem pretty close to what we have here, though.

That's an awesome build.

@Larry Chen @aussieANON Did you guys get the Defender at all?
If not, the S1 Discovery is a great base to start. Coil springs and live axle are a recipe for success.
All you would really have to do would be lift it, some good tyres, then lockers (although I'm not sure how much abuse the stock axles will withstand, I'm not a big offroad nut).

They're wonderful cars.
Our family car is a Discovery 4, the turbo diesel. Costs a lot of money here due to taxes etc
Damn it's nice though. Tows all the broken down cars we can find on the highway with no problems, fits camping gear for a week with no problems, and absolutely monsters bad terrain.
Now if they could only make them more reliable...
Black, it'll go much better with the blue exterior

@Coyote_ar @Budd19 There was a lot of stuff that was different between M3 and DTM, and to replicate all that would cost a hell of a lot. Now a DTM car isn't exactly cheap to start with, but still.

There's a classic motorsport thing happening in August there as well. I think Shannons is sponsoring it so it should be good.
Every time there's something posted about historic racing I start searching how much the cars cost. One day.....

I have to say, my love of cars was definitely inherited from dad.
My older brother doesn't seem to have quite the same passion, but then he's more concerned with useless things like an education.
I can only hope that if I have kids they can be gifted with the same love of things that go broom.
800hp in a car that small and light... He's going to have a hell of a time trying to pilot that around. Do like
