  1. Canadian Reviews Are Live! Throttle House & The Straight Pipes

    Indeed. Any car will break when abused, including your beloved Supra :)
  2. Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept -- Electric Muscle Cars Incoming

    The federal government needs to let the EV industry figure this out on their own without financial backing. If the federal government needs to subsidize or incentivize anything, it's the power grid and infrastructure that needs the help - doesn't matter how many charging stations you have...
  3. Canadian Reviews Are Live! Throttle House & The Straight Pipes

    Question that no one seems to be asking... Why haven't any of the prior reviews had this issue with the gearbox? Hagerty did not, SG did not, among several others with the first wave of reviews where they beat up on these cars in Vegas.
  4. Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept -- Electric Muscle Cars Incoming

    Quite honestly, I believe this concept is profound on several levels. Dodge/SRT has come out with some of the most fun-inspired vehicles in the last decade that bucked trends toward cars becoming "appliances". They have always understood that cars can serve as extensions of the people that...
  5. Savagegeese pits the 2023 Nissan Z vs Supra

    There isn't yet a VR30 build that can reliably, consistently produce over 1000 horsepower. The Infiniti cars haven't been the right cars to push the aftermarket for that. We'll see what happens with the Zs making it into private ownership. His VQ twin turbo did ok, but multiple engine...
  6. Should Nissan make a 300hp base model Z?

    I believe the question is "should Nissan make a 300hp base model" and not "would you buy a 300hp base model." Speak with your wallet as to what you want. A 300hp variant would sell if priced properly. Most if not all of us here want the 400hp, but that doesn't mean there's not merit to Nissan...
  7. Nissan Z Nismo rendering

    Were we short on reasons to dislike Car and Driver to begin with?
  8. VR30DDTT more reliable than B58?

    Don't you dare threaten me with a good time. If a Q50 comes with a stick, it's a day one order for me. Sorry Z. That would be the "have my cake and eat it too" configuration.
  9. Watch the Z get window tint

    Following up on that, imagine a press Z getting borrowed for a day or two at a time and dudes do little things each time it's checked out. The Z comes back to Nissan, it's got window tint, different tires, an off-the-shelf map, it runs e85, makes 500whp after being gone for six months. Car and...
  10. Watch the Z get window tint

    Or they stole a press car long enough to make a video and get some hits. ALWAYS DO IT FOR THE LIKES
  11. VR30DDTT more reliable than B58?

    I didn't watch the above video, but I'll bet that motor blew up because of some over-the-counter bs tune that the Q knobs have been putting on these cars for years. Go to any Infiniti Q facebook group and you'll find a bunch of idiots that bought lease returns from carmax and pushed the cars...
  12. 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    Perfectly logical - the reality is the upgrade gained in the baseline performance and capability getting into a C7 from the C6 is the exact same whether you split it between a 2013 and a 2014 model or a 2005 and a 2019 model. Therefore, that capability upgrade cost a buyer between 2% and 28%...
  13. 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    At the end of the C8's lifecycle. Debut year for C6 Corvette - 2005, MSRP $44,245 Ending year for C6 - 2013, MSRP $51,000, Lifecycle increase of 15% Debut year for C7 Stingray - 2014, MSRP $51,995 Ending year for C7 Stingray - 2019, MSRP $56,590, Lifecycle increase of 8% Debut year for C8...
  14. 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    What's interesting to me is - it's completely ok that it's a brand new car, but the C8 Z06 has achieved extremely similar net performance gains over its predecessor that the Z has gained over the 370Z. Roughly a touch over a half a second 0-60 time gained from C7Z to C8Z. Roughly a touch...
  15. 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    Where are the pricing guys at that say the Corvette is evading inflation? The C8 Z06 is over $25k more than its C7 Z06 predecessor.
  16. INFINITI announces all-new 2017 Q60 Sports Coupe

    They say anything is possible with aftermarket add-ons these days. Wild world we live in.
  17. New 2023 Nissan Z Brochure

    Those Nismo Clubsport wheels have been around for a couple years. They're awesome. Good to see Nissan pushing them with the new Z. Z1 Motorsports has been selling them since before COVID I think.
  18. Anotha One from C&D: Comparison Test: 2022 BMW M240i vs. 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. 2023 Nissan Z vs. 2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0

    I really like this review, especially the part where the BMW scored bonus points in its vehicle rating for having back seats.
  19. Underneath the 2023 Nissan Z Performance -- Undercarriage Underbody Underhood views by Bros FOURR Speed

    FI uses 3" for the downpipe sections on the VR30DDTT and 2.5" afterward. They also option a 3" turbo-back exhaust for their boosted 370Z applications.
