Pretty much except for a few of things - mid to high range torque, the raw feel/feedback of an old sports car, and traction (although sometimes you don't want this :burnrubber:)

Yeah, I bought the Evo X and fourth gen Eclipse right when they were released and they were faultless for all the years I had them (6+). The ones who claim poor reliability are generally those who...

My point was that it is the least important area of weight as it the most centrally located and not a part of unsprung weight or rotational mass. I didn't say it didn't matter though. But to try to...

Maybe they should make a higher end model with stuff like forged wheels, forged aluminum links, and Brembo brakes for those who value that sort of thing. Aftermarket is not always the most reliable...

Within reason... I was responding to those who were saying that they can go much faster by taking a crap or working out a bit. Of course a whole nother body's worth of weight will make a difference.

Even the smallest turbos don't really do much until about 3k rpm. You just have to slip the clutch and throttle a little bit to get the revs up when that happens. Eventually, it'll become second...

With all due respect, you do not want to release the throttle or push in the clutch when you start spinning as that only exacerbates the spin. You actually want to throttle a little to keep traction...

Yeah, that's part of the newly added eject mode. If you press in the emergency lights while locking the brakes, the roof will open and you'll be ejected out. Pretty cool I think. :thumbsup:
