bloated pig?!? at least his was imported. i drove a 2-door convertible endeavor. the insurance company called it a sports car. it had the same turning radius as a suburban. weighed almost as much too.

I guess not parking under oak trees is the answer.

Bought it in 09. Upgraded the turbos to 15g sized turbos, had Emanage ultimate, upgraded struts and Trim lowering springs with every upgraded bushing I could find. 275/35r18 Fallen Azenis tires, the car was a monster.

After it spun it's second bearing, I abandoned it and just stayed with my trusty E36. The turn in response and handling of the VR4 at higher speeds was insane, but for autocross it was too much work for a low speed technical course. The engines are garbage to work on and you need race pads even with stock power.



Sorry for thread jack.

a friend of mine bought a new '18 silverado, first camping trip, the squirrels rained walnuts onto all the vehicles every morning for 3 days. they just had 12 dents PDR'd for $1200. i could just barely see 3. i never saw the other 9 dents, even after they pointed them out.

I don't park under trees here in FL, not just the acorns but because the bird shit and tree sap as well.

It is pretty simple to remove the dings with a PDR kit, and it looks a lot better today.
I agree it's a great car, but disagree about the fastest handling. My Mazdaspeed Miata was about 200 pounds lighter and far nimbler. No contest when it came to tossability, at least for me. The 86 unavoidably carries weight higher over the rear suspension for one thing.

Yes, I meant to include Miata.

Outside of the Elise & Miata, this is the fastest handling car made in the last 30 years due to the weight.
