It's all good man. We are all friendly here, at least until we start talking to each other...LOL

Post some pics of your cars, let's see what you've done with them.

As for how the rest of the world percieves us.......we aren't adults, we are boys with really fast toys. We live our lives in our cars, so we don't really care what others think of us. It's more of what they think of our cars And if that excuse isn't good enough for you, most of us are Americans(and you know how we can be when we get on a rant......just look at President Bush).

I never doubted what you know about cars because I don't know you yet.

Welcome to AF

Exclamation American Inefficiency

Torque is the name of the game. Thats's where acceleration begins. To get lots of torque, you need lots of stroke and large combustion area both of which makes the engine bigger. Japanese and Euro sports cars make good Peak horsepower but their torque output, especially low - midrange RPM can't match the V8's or the V10. For the money it would take to make the 6's compete, you could put the V8's well out of their reach. Don't get me wrong, I like the Japanese sports cars, the Impreza WRX and Supra TT especially, but call a spade a spade before you call the Viper's V-10 inefficient.

I'm kind of scared to go see the 2nd movie, the first one scarred me for life.

The scene is going to be off the hinges though; I'll prolly show up just because I know there'll be a big turnout, just like the first one.

Heh, I'll probably go opening night with a friend... for the sole purpose of racing all the ricers after the movie...

It will be a safe night of racing, because I'm willing to bet all the people with fast civics/accords/etc won't be at the movie

Who knows tho, maybe I'll lose horribly to every single one

Arrow FaF2

lets get back on track now:

someone made a stupid comment about efficiency, not about which car is better than the best.

Based on engine efficiency, the V-10 natural loses. That was proven a long time ago.
Do not bring up torque and acceleration because yes they are needed yet acceleration does not happen if too much torque is applied and there is no AWD to the least. You will slide on the corner and experience imperfect steer. That was already stated as well.
Japanese and Euro cars can and do make good peak horse power in comparison to American, torque is mostly generated at low to mid RPM, and for many cars Japanese and Euro, they make plenty more torque than horsepower, and within the same low to mid RPM range as an American. The torque can and most likely does match between 6's and 8's. Remember that you can use torque to find horsepower in equation. You also need to push a weight far enough in a faster time.

Sure, with the same amount of money to compete a 6 cyl., lets slap on a supercharger or two to the viper and do a job well done. That would probably be over a hundred thousand american dollars.
An R34 having work done to the same budget or less could make the same or more power than the viper, and yet still be more advanced with it's Electronic torque splitting AWD and four wheel steering.
That's an expected gain of a second every lap for the R34 compared to the RWD Viper.

Remember, reach to acheive as much of 100% or more of an engines POTENTIAL. R34 meets and beats that. The Viper breathes through one and only one nostril. Just say it's inefficient.

Both cars are great and can beat the average jo(k)e on the street. They are STRONG. But I see that many like I hate the new body of the Viper and think it looks better the way it was before.

The movie: wait and watch it. race that car you take pride in. and recieve a ticket. We see nice pics here; some hate some cars, and love the others. After all, the pictures are what this thread is all about. And somebody must have spent a lot of money on those horrible stickers obviously to get your attention, and it works.



Someone chose to speak of inefficiency, not about which car can run over a cow in the worst possible way.
Spade. V-10 natural is inefficient.

Back to critiquing the FaF2 car photos.............

Yeah Grendel, you're probably right. There was a really good turnout at the first one, but no one had any idea how horrible the movie was gonna be. I'll probably end up riding through the parking lot to see if there are any cool cars, then leave.

Stop bullshitting. You will go see the movie like everyone else. I know you will, because if you don't then you won't know anything about the movie to complain about its errors.

the skylines kind fo remind me of the blitz skyline, with the grey paint and stripes, except they r most likely slower.

and the back of the viper still looks like a chrysler sebring to me.

and i hope that they have more asians in the movie, im not trying to be racist or anything, but asians make up a large part of the import tuner population, and they were scarce in faf1
