In Topic: Funny Rally Video

Funny. I think Sami didn't do too bad of a job under the circumstances. The first thing I would have done, if I was Sami, is to punch the other guy as soon as I stopped car. He should not be guiding anybody in a Road Rally in that manner.

Scott

He is an instructor, and the student seemed fairly terrible.

I agree it should have been a V8. Just because its American, and that's what we do here. Remember, the fastest cars in the world are rear wheel drive and V8 powered(top fuelers, and funny cars). Just my opinion, though. But I have never liked the gt40. I want a Viper.

What do super-specialized one trick pony cars have to do with a production street car? Salt flat cars have jet engines in them, I hear they are fast. It's also funny you defend the v8, but want a car with a v10.

 

When it comes to the new GT, people don't understand what Ford is doing with it. They intend to win class at Le Mans 50 years after the GT40 went 1-2-3. Literally every styling and powertrain element of the car is based around that, it's irrelevant what car nerds say on the internet.

Yeah....a true muscle car needs a V-8....they will impress me when they can get over 400,000. miles from a 4 or 6 cyl.   What is next?...front wheel drive only 1 ton pickups for the farmers to use with a 4 or 6 cyl?...yeah they will sell lots of those to the farmers that haul/tow heavy loads.

Erm...there are lots of non-v8 engines that can go 400k + miles, I'm not sure what you are on about.

600 hp out of a 3.5 V6 is very impressive, but nothing sounds better than a V8. Just my opinion. :)

Wankel 4 rotor, Audi I5, and a nice n/a v12 to name a few, but to each their own.  :D
