    Alright, so I've been addicted to Project CARS. Basically its the best racing game to ever be made so far, it will triumph over Gran Turismo. And since you can actually give track data to developers, it influences them to want and make that track for the game. Right now, I'm collecting data for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, so that it can be accurately represented in the game. And since they have both current and historic tracks, I am going to be painstakingly mapping what it is now, for the new data. And then gather old race info on Pikes Peak back in 1985, when the Audi Quattro broke the world record. Which may also put the car in the game.

    When my car is complete, I am going to be making multiple videos up and down while calculating speed and milage between turns and stuff like that. I will also be pulling over a lot to measure track widths and things like that in the turns. Will be a fun summer for sure.

    Edited:

    Gotta pageking it with some bullshit.

    Is it strange to name your car? Is it even more stranger to name it after a video game character?

    for a average monte carlo that isn't rare nor fast? fuck no. unless its like your dream car and this is the best deal ever


    i rambled a lot
    Dale Earnhardt was my favorite racer, His style was I win you loose. No one is better then him and if he doesn't get in first he lost just like the person in last place.

    There were three made in 2001 before he died in the accident in which they were going to produce them for 2002. They made only 3333 of the Dale Editions in 2002 (Referencing his number 3)

    Not really, He just had a true racing mentality. If you race and have doubt about winning then you arn't racing your just driving. He didn't race to try to get to first. He raced to be number one. He was still one of the nicest people to be around.

    Every time I fill up.. I've never had enough money to fill up my car. The most i have ever put in was $20, but it's usually $5-$10 at a time.

    My friend named his 240 fastbutt, Delilah. Why? I have no idea.

    He went ahead and Photoshopped 'Delilah' on a picture of it and put it as his FB timeline picture. I don't know what to call mine. A car?

    I had a car like that for about 24 hours.

    It was an 88 Oldsmoblile Regency Brougham. Shit was like a couch on wheels. Was a complete piece of shit under the hood though - suspension was dead and the engine was smoking.

    Fucking Ad for the Monte Carlo Dale Edition was surpose to be taken down but the poster forgot, So now I have to move to the last one publically I can find for sale which is in Washington. I'd have to pay nearly 1,000 to get it shipped from there to my house. Other option is do the cost of a plane ticket and gas for coast to coast literally. (Coast line of WA to westchester county). Tipped the dealer an Email saying hey I'm in new york, Whats the status on that car and if its for sale I want it.

    Road trip sounds fun but is it worth it.
    why? it's an FF monte carlo, the car meant to be FR

    Yeah I know you like it and that's fine, that's what matters, but after looking it up the SS has a 3.8 V6 doing 0-60 in 8.6 seconds and it's FWD. that's awful

    Not a minivan...

    One of those big vans, or better yet, a station wagon.

    Clarkson put a waterbed in the back of a volvo SW in the teenage car challange.

    Is vtec any good? Keep seeing a bunch of Civics on CL with vtec and I'm wondering if I should even bother, but having something like that with good gas mileage and a little extra oomph never hurts

    I've been feeling this for the past 2-3 months, any ways I can determine if it's off? Maybe with a gps?
    GPS is accurate enough, give it a shot.

    :( Since you don't want my opinion I guess I'll keep it to myself that the extra oomph isn't worth the loss in low end power or fuel economy. (VTEC engines have a higher range power band and always get at least a few MPG worse than the non-VTEC Civics)

    But, you know, whatever. You don't want the resident AA Honda Guy's opinion

    My opinion on VTEC for performance is that it's retarded.

    My opinion on VTEC for fuel economy is that it's useless.

    ...Unless you get something with i-VTEC or VTEC-E. They get crazy mileage for the output they have.
