underpowered? i dont knoiw man. i would change that to perfectly balanced unless u got a 4acSteve-AE86 said:i have clinical depression.
after the demise of my life, my first marriage, my business, my bank account, having to sell both my 86's (tho keeping them both in the family, thanks Arch for taking the Trueno, and thanks Damon's for taking my project Levin), I am now a man relegated to driving a VL Commodore station wagon.
but hey, things are looking on the up. I have a beautiful new wife, and a 3 month old son. I've sold my 250rwkw Silvia. I am feeling the need for a new toy. I miss the feeling of the underpowered, gokart handling, rawness of the ae86.
my new years resolution:
steve hows it going? last time a saw u it was like 7.30 in the morning at Bp. Save ur cash and work ur magic on another 86 u know u want to!Steve-AE86 said:ok, maybe i was a bit hasty in my typings
have to say, the 16v in the trueno was always a better powerplant than the blacktop20v... quicker off the line, better torque range, etc., but neither really compared to the SR in my silvia.
balance does play a big part. i had no problem pushing an FD up Belair Rd, just with the stock Bigport, but would have had no problem overtaking him in the sil.
Hey man, i feel what your saying with the cash situation, ive been saving for a while and its taking ages. Still, you should come out to the meets, when they happen, coz its a good way to catch up with people and get motivated to make things happenAxentrik Ae86 said:I'm here. In dire need of a real job with an actual salary as opposed to commission, so don't expect much progress on my car or my social interaction at meets.
