We keep talking about overloading the clutch/engine etc ... I thought overloading referred to the amount of carrying load capacity as in how much weight you put in the car.

Eh, stock clutch is up to par with the stock power. Upgraded clutches that will probably wear faster than the OEM clutch are one of the biggest wastes of money that could go to other mods in my...

I actually kinda like that green with the black accents on the bumper, mirrors and the unpainted roof. My favorite color on the E92 is Alpine White though.

Yes, and I love it. I'm not really missing out on the FR-S's sports car handling here in Vegas. I mean, this city is a flat grid of streets for the most part, and I rarely ever explored its...

Now, I will agree with you on there. It's not entry level in that respect. Certainly not the first car I'd give a teenager who's into motorsports that's for sure.
