I've been reading over this, and really, why do you keep on hammering on about the flying miata like its a god. Its not, its got shit handling unless it has been tuned properly, and that costs a shit ton of money.
You could buy a lotus exige for the money and have a much funner and better driving experience.
And even then i can go ahead and go hur durr more HP, and you have the hennessey venom GT (modded exige), which is over fckin 1000 with lower weight than the miata.
Sorry for the /rant
User avatar #127 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I didn't mean Flyin Miata as in the company; I personally think those guys can go fuck themselves because they charge like 28k just to put in the engine transmission and rear axle, you have to buy your own car. I meant any LS swapped Miata.

And why do I talk about it like it's a god? Well A. Because I like it, and B. because it really it a great car. Why do you say it has shit handling? The LS swapped Miata compared to the stock one is less than 200lbs heavier and it only changes the weight distribution by 1%.

No you couldn't buy an Exige for that money because if you do the LS swap yourself without sending it to Flyin Miata it should only cost about 10-12k for the actual swap (not counting the cost of the car). And besides, the selling points of the Exige are god-tier handling and a decent amount of power in a small light car. You get literally the exact same thing in an NSX for cheaper still.

And what's funny is that the LS Miata is like a baby venom GT. Hennessey does the exact same thing that Flyin Miata does, except instead of swapping an LS1 or LS3 into a Miata, he swaps a twin turboed LSX into an elongated Exige.
User avatar #129 - mostlyjunk (04/16/2014) [-]
I know hennessey does the exact same thing, thats why i picked this example.

And you can NOT be serious when you say an NSX handles just as well as an exige... AND an NSX is more expensive...

And if the person is as handy as to do everything himself, a kitcar will be cheaper and still much more fun to drive

There you go. Look miata is kinda over hyped yes but they are a great car. Easy to work on and they are reliable to say the least. Massive amounts of fun with less risk of getting yourself killed.
NSX are really a top performer stock in track racing. They are held up high by motor trend, car and driver, and road and track. Exige is a great car and is on its own level but the suspension is not that different from a miatas; just different spring durations and strengthening. They handle similarly.
User avatar #197 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
And yea sorry, i do love the mx5 / miata as well, but its just a fact that you can pick up a 15K kit car or 25K lotus elise, and it'd much more fun to drive, I know, I have driven both, and own a 111r elise. Sorry for misundersandings

Belgium. Never talked to a person from belgium. I am from texas but my parents are from mexico so i am the first generation hispanic. I have my own build since I am from the U.S.
I was kinda raised with muscle in mind but I like japanese cars too. Here is what I am trying to build. A 1976 chevy 4 door nova. I want to but a ls engine and trans with a stronger chassis, front suspension, and rear diff. I don't want to race it but I don't want to back down from a challenge. Also I want to make it strong enough to handle corners well.
Not the best picture but just an idea of what it looks like.
User avatar #205 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
Last week we actually had a couchsurfer over from the US, really nice guy, he loved Bruges, and that car looks amazing, though I think the weight distribution of the car would be up too high to really take tight corners? still nice one!
#206 - frankbeeflinks (04/23/2014) [-]
Yes! kind of a problem that needs to be fixed but you know what? I can do it and will work well. Now if it would go against your elise no way it could beat it even if it was slightly modded but its all for the fun. How did that guy get there in the first place? Idk how that would even happen.
User avatar #207 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
By plane? hehe, and about that backing down from a challenge, mate, look, that happens to me all the time on the road, and its not smart to indulge in that, even if you are a good driver, someone else can always fuck shit up.
If it happens to me, I actually drive slower and slower, till they get annoyed and take off, on the track though, it is fun to smoke those old guys or rich kids with their porches and whatnot ; )
#208 - frankbeeflinks (04/23/2014) [-]
Yes it's fun and yes the dangers are there. It happens to my friends a good bunch and they keep it on the down low. But here where I live there are some spoiled kids that want to race and will damage your car if you don't and/or if you beat them. They also give bad rep which spreads and can get your car stolen in to or your car kissed by some dumbass because he is too butt hurt to handle your car. They also drive stupidly and don't know their cars well enough to run them because "if its bought fast they can handle it". I am sorry for ranting it just frustrates me that my generation of dumbass car owners don't know limits and mutual honor amongst racers.
Now about that guy I would think he would have enough money for a plain ticket and to go to a public sleep house or hotel or something. I don't live there so I am not sure what are the customs there.

this does not count. That car would be impossible to drive on the street and it probably gets an engine rebuild every 10 passes. I was talking about a streetable supra that you could drive everyday

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf-wuvx1U74
Look at how the much less powerful GTR kills it with the 4WD and that wheelspin from the supra. They simply cant put the power down.
#81 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
Very true I thought you were speaking in a general sense. And of course man. AWD is damn great.
User avatar #84 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
GT-R all day. Although the new C7 z06 corvette has really started growing on me. That thing is killing records
#90 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
C7's are sexy, loved the look of them since GT5 lol. And I would go 100,000 into debt for a GTR.
User avatar #93 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I was just discussing this with my dad on Saturday because we were driving on the highway and saw both of those cars.

Put one against the other and theyre neck and neck in terms of stats. They just have different personalities; large relatively unsophisticated supercharged V8 in one for that straightline speed, less powerful and very clever electronic aids in a car that can turn corners like no other.

So it's hard to choose.

If someone led me outside and there were parked a GT-R and a C7 z06 and they told me I could have one for free, Id choose the GTR in a heartbeat. But if I had to make the money myself, it would be C7 all day. I dont need to spend 30k extra for the GTR because the C7 does everything so so well.
#99 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
If it was up to me I would take something with AWD. I'm not too crazy about HP but I love seeing how well and how fast I can take a turn without getting scared of losing control. I love Subarus' for that reason. Low boxer motor, good suspension, awesomely light, Plus I love the looks of them. But to each their own. Pleasant conversation swimmingprodigy, most of my car conversations with the internet just turn into a brand war and people talking about something they don't know. Have a picture of my wallpaper.
User avatar #123 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I feel like AWD would be boring, I want something RWD because I love the feeling of taking a corner slightly too fast and the tail end starts to step out just a bit so you have to expertly correct with counter steering and gentle throttle manipulation.

Same to you.

Concerning Supra and the MR2, you are right for the most parts. But like all cars enthusiasts, it usually ends up being tuned to hell anyways.
Subaru: Because 4x4, and even if it's slow, still 4x4.
And for Mazda, i've never really liked the look of their cars. Like for many japanese car models, they tend to look alot like a "hairdressers car".
The RX-7, which was somewhat forgotten, not really a car i would put money on though.
#36 - thetom (04/15/2014) [-]
I believe the Miata is still the most raced car in the world.

also what makes it a hairdressers car, how did that even come about? i can see that its not aggressive or manly but why a hairdressers car?

Buying a miata is like coming out of the closet, and puting a heavy engine in a small car will make it steer like a old Volvo 740, loots of understeer and when you put your foot then the tail will go out and you will spin out
0/10 buy a BMW instead
User avatar #180 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
Are you trying to rassle my jammies?
It's not a heavy engine because the V8 is pushrod so it's physically smaller and it's aluminum so it weighs less. The whole V8 swap makes the whole car less than 200lbs heavier and it only changes the weight distribution by 1%.
User avatar #182 - thascomrad (04/16/2014) [-]
In a car that weighs under a ton? 90 kg does a lot of difference. And dont forget that you need to make the chassi harder. And that adds weight.
You should also stop beliving everything you read on the internet
User avatar #183 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
right because you are the undisputed master of everything and I shouldnt believe what I read posted by someone who actually did the swap, instead i should listen to you.

Stock Miata weighs about 2350 lbs, LS Miata weighs 2540. Neither of those are under a ton. Thats also with the strengthened chassis which doesnt add that much weight at all
User avatar #184 - thascomrad (04/16/2014) [-]
What gen are you talking about?
You also need to count the weight of gearbox and driveline. I dont think a original miata gearbox is bolt-on to a LS1
User avatar #185 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
You heard me right; the entire swap (new engine, transmission, and rear axle) makes the car weigh less than 200 lbs more.

And I'm talking about an NB Miata.
Stock it weighed 2349 lbs with 51.4% of the weight on the front wheels. That's with a naturally aspirated engine, no turbo.
That same car with a big turbo and water injection weighed 2530 lbs and 51.9% front weight.
And that same car yet again with the complete LS swap was 2536 with 52.6% on the front.

User avatar #186 - thascomrad (04/16/2014) [-]
Well then you win that argument, I'll give you that. But Miatas are still a hairdressers car.
If I were to put an new engine in a Miata I would put a Volvo T5 in it and tune it to about 800+ horsepower
User avatar #187 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
You know I kind of like the look of the Miata, especially the NB. I know people say only gay men drive it but I can see the appeal. I've wathced many people review it and they say that it's a fun little car to drive.

However I will never be that poor to have to resort to buying a Miata as my fun car, so if I want a relatively cheap weekend car to drive I'd just buy a C5 Corvette. They go for as low as 15k at this point.

Although one of my dream cars is an E46 M3 in Laguna Seca Blue. The corvette is only 2 seats but I ever need more space then I'd definitely buy the BMW

And I love the Volvo T5, I almost bought a T-5R but the guy wanted too much for it.
User avatar #188 - thascomrad (04/16/2014) [-]
Small cars are always funny, I woudnt want to own a Miata but I would enjoy driving one.

Id rather have any BMW with a straight six or bigger engine then the Corvette C5. Im not that much in love with 'Merican cars.

I want to buy a E46 328i as my first car, but I need to start saving money...

Get an 850 T5, same engine but cheaper. Just change the ECU so the turbo boosts more, and it will go better then a 850R Or put the T5 in a 940/740 for RWD, just change some fittings on the engine and it will fit, I think the gearbox is bolt on aswell
#71 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
Sorry but I hate the idea of dropping an American motor into foreign cars. Keep it in your cars manufacturer. I don't like the people dropping 2JZ's into their Nissans. But i don't know to each their own. I don't like bashing people's ideas of cars. They like what they like.
#176 - awesomechardey (04/16/2014) [-]
Why would you even want to do that? There are so much really powerful german engines, that fit into this car. I mean over here american motors are also known to be powerful but not really to be efficient. Take the engine from the golf-2-gti and you have like 200hp if I'm not that wrong. That's a 2liter engine and takes about 8 liters on 100km.

But I also can be wrong and there are some smaller american Motors which also have plenty of power and don't take too much fuell. Iluminate me.
User avatar #181 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
You know what's funny? The V8 engine in the 5th gen corvette gets the same if not better gas milesage than the honda s2000, both highway AND city.
#191 - awesomechardey (04/17/2014) [-]
Thats interesting? Do you have any number about liters per kilometer? Or at least gallons per mile?
#192 - swimmingprodigy (04/18/2014) [-]
Ok I lied, the V8 gets slightly worse MPG. But it's still really impressive considering the engine is twice as big and the Corvette is a heavier car
User avatar #79 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
But the thing about the LS Miata's are that it's a ridiculous amount of power in a tiny car.
Nothing Japan ever made is close to this because japan was always about small light cars with not a lot of power but great handling. And because of the 112mph gentlman's agreement, there was simply no need for fast cars.

But I understand why 2JZ in a Nissan is just....bad. That would be like dropping an LS9 into a Ford GT
#103 - btsharpshot (04/16/2014) [-]
I understand your point about small cars with great handling and mediocre hp/tq coming out of japan (gt86, nsx, 350/370z), but I believe these cars are the best to boost or heavymod just because it is a lot more expensive and time consuming to change a cars center of gravity, swap out perfectly fine stock parts for lower weight parts, and aerodynamics in general (minus simple body kits). with boosting, swapping out larger turbos, replacing intakes, and modifying stock internals is much cheaper still expensive as fuck and more newbie friendly due to the high demand in Japanese parts cause of the new generation of "Honda kids". And don't you dare forget all models of this amazing machine straight outta japan.

TL,DR jap cars are preferable because cheaper, easier, and a lot more customizations than german or domestic market cars.
User avatar #120 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
none of the engines in the cars you listed handle power mods very well. The only ones I can think of that are good for big power are the RB serious and the 1UZ and 2JZ.

And in the case of the LS1 Miata, it's a relatively simple process and the entire swap complete with new transmission real axle and engine makes the Miata only about 150lbs heavier than the original components, AND weight distribution stays exactly the same. So it's a win/win anyway you look at it

SR20, VR38 and maybe 13b (turbos galore) and up but yeah thats it.. Rotary's are questionable though, because apex seals

#147 - wobblesbeatbox (04/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, I agree. It's a racing engine, not very torquey. That's where the LS shines. Most Jap engines just don't give enough. Formula Drift is dominated by them now, apart from a few drivers. But the real power house is VTEC yo.
#194 - pinkfloyd (04/22/2014) [-]
I bought a 2008 Kawasaki ninja 650r. I spent 7,500 for everything including gear and my insurance is 700$ a year for a 18 year old. I can beat ricers and moderately fast muscle or sports car, like a 2008 V8 Mustang with super chargers. It's funny when I am at a red light and a civic rolls up with a fart can and revs there engine trying to show off and I just stand them up with my Akrapovic exhaust[spoiler]www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi5wNp-fnLY [/spoiler I am also 7-0 racing against civics, lancers, corollas and eclipses.

I laugh at honda bois spewing their "Muh VTECs make me go faster" crap.

Do they not realize that almost every company uses VTEC they just name it something else?

Go these kiddies make me laugh. I own a completely stock nissan altima 3.5L and that VQ35 makes 275HP stock. I beat nearly every other car in a race (especially Ek/EJ hatch Civics) and the honda boys get mad that their shitbox got beaten by a 4 door family sedan
#153 - wobblesbeatbox (04/16/2014) [-]
The look on their faces is priceless. Some antsy kid is a 98 civic thought he and his rice burner with the leaf blower exhaust were hot shit. My sister beat the dude in a Diesel Suv.
I'm still a few years off owning a car (16 from Canada) but I'm looking for a project car as we speak. Of course I could go with an 240, but the thought of a KA makes me shiver. SR is the ticket, but most cars that swapped one want 10 grand or more, which for me isn't doable.

Japan has the RB and 2JZ. A proper build on these motors are quite powerful.
User avatar #89 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
yes I know the motors exist and can be modded easily for big numbers, but in their stock configurations theyre slow as shit. Like I said japan never felt the need to build ridiculously powerful cars. On the touge their cars were quick even though not very powerful.

It's not like American companies which thought "Lets put our biggest motor into our smallest car and make it go as fast as possible in a straight line".
#94 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
Very true.
User avatar #55 - brytonn (04/16/2014) [-]
LS1 swaps in Miatas get ridiculous.
If you're willing to spend that much time and energy into customizing nearly everything in your car, you deserve the 50+hp more than the turbo.
If it were me though, the turbo costs less and creates just enough hp for the tiny little car.
User avatar #72 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
Depends on the boost, but it's really hard to get a lot of power out of the Miat engine. With a turbo and a LOT of boost you'd be lucky to get 250. More like 200 in an everyday setup. LS1 gives 350 right off the bat and LS3 gives 430 which is ridiculous. That's way more than 50hp difference.

I think that a turbo miata is the cheapest fun quick car you can buy. A good condition MIata is like 4 or 5k and a turbo even from flying miata is like 3k. But you could fabricate a lot of your own stuff for cheaper

User avatar #33 - swimmingprodigy (04/15/2014) [-]
A properly set up LS1 Miata could wreck all of those except maybe the evo.

Lets be honest, the Supra sucks and the only reason it's popular is because of F&F. The dyno queens make 1000 HP and still cant go lower than 10 sec quarter miles because they cant put the power down.

The MR2 is slow and fuck, the only reason it's popular is because "muh racecar MR setup".

Legacy's arent even meant to be fast, Subaru's fast cars are the impreza STis.

You can't hate on Mazda at all, they're made ridiculously good cars. Stock miata is slow as shit, but very fun to drive. Even turboed MIata with 250HP is really quick. LS1 or 3 is just pants on head retarded in terms of power to weight. And how the fuck do u ignore the RX-7?
User avatar #124 - mostlyjunk (04/16/2014) [-]
I've been reading over this, and really, why do you keep on hammering on about the flying miata like its a god. Its not, its got shit handling unless it has been tuned properly, and that costs a shit ton of money.
You could buy a lotus exige for the money and have a much funner and better driving experience.
And even then i can go ahead and go hur durr more HP, and you have the hennessey venom GT (modded exige), which is over fckin 1000 with lower weight than the miata.
Sorry for the /rant
User avatar #127 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I didn't mean Flyin Miata as in the company; I personally think those guys can go fuck themselves because they charge like 28k just to put in the engine transmission and rear axle, you have to buy your own car. I meant any LS swapped Miata.

And why do I talk about it like it's a god? Well A. Because I like it, and B. because it really it a great car. Why do you say it has shit handling? The LS swapped Miata compared to the stock one is less than 200lbs heavier and it only changes the weight distribution by 1%.

No you couldn't buy an Exige for that money because if you do the LS swap yourself without sending it to Flyin Miata it should only cost about 10-12k for the actual swap (not counting the cost of the car). And besides, the selling points of the Exige are god-tier handling and a decent amount of power in a small light car. You get literally the exact same thing in an NSX for cheaper still.

And what's funny is that the LS Miata is like a baby venom GT. Hennessey does the exact same thing that Flyin Miata does, except instead of swapping an LS1 or LS3 into a Miata, he swaps a twin turboed LSX into an elongated Exige.
User avatar #129 - mostlyjunk (04/16/2014) [-]
I know hennessey does the exact same thing, thats why i picked this example.

And you can NOT be serious when you say an NSX handles just as well as an exige... AND an NSX is more expensive...

And if the person is as handy as to do everything himself, a kitcar will be cheaper and still much more fun to drive

There you go. Look miata is kinda over hyped yes but they are a great car. Easy to work on and they are reliable to say the least. Massive amounts of fun with less risk of getting yourself killed.
NSX are really a top performer stock in track racing. They are held up high by motor trend, car and driver, and road and track. Exige is a great car and is on its own level but the suspension is not that different from a miatas; just different spring durations and strengthening. They handle similarly.
User avatar #197 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
And yea sorry, i do love the mx5 / miata as well, but its just a fact that you can pick up a 15K kit car or 25K lotus elise, and it'd much more fun to drive, I know, I have driven both, and own a 111r elise. Sorry for misundersandings

Belgium. Never talked to a person from belgium. I am from texas but my parents are from mexico so i am the first generation hispanic. I have my own build since I am from the U.S.
I was kinda raised with muscle in mind but I like japanese cars too. Here is what I am trying to build. A 1976 chevy 4 door nova. I want to but a ls engine and trans with a stronger chassis, front suspension, and rear diff. I don't want to race it but I don't want to back down from a challenge. Also I want to make it strong enough to handle corners well.
Not the best picture but just an idea of what it looks like.
User avatar #205 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
Last week we actually had a couchsurfer over from the US, really nice guy, he loved Bruges, and that car looks amazing, though I think the weight distribution of the car would be up too high to really take tight corners? still nice one!
#206 - frankbeeflinks (04/23/2014) [-]
Yes! kind of a problem that needs to be fixed but you know what? I can do it and will work well. Now if it would go against your elise no way it could beat it even if it was slightly modded but its all for the fun. How did that guy get there in the first place? Idk how that would even happen.
User avatar #207 - mostlyjunk (04/23/2014) [-]
By plane? hehe, and about that backing down from a challenge, mate, look, that happens to me all the time on the road, and its not smart to indulge in that, even if you are a good driver, someone else can always fuck shit up.
If it happens to me, I actually drive slower and slower, till they get annoyed and take off, on the track though, it is fun to smoke those old guys or rich kids with their porches and whatnot ; )
#208 - frankbeeflinks (04/23/2014) [-]
Yes it's fun and yes the dangers are there. It happens to my friends a good bunch and they keep it on the down low. But here where I live there are some spoiled kids that want to race and will damage your car if you don't and/or if you beat them. They also give bad rep which spreads and can get your car stolen in to or your car kissed by some dumbass because he is too butt hurt to handle your car. They also drive stupidly and don't know their cars well enough to run them because "if its bought fast they can handle it". I am sorry for ranting it just frustrates me that my generation of dumbass car owners don't know limits and mutual honor amongst racers.
Now about that guy I would think he would have enough money for a plain ticket and to go to a public sleep house or hotel or something. I don't live there so I am not sure what are the customs there.

this does not count. That car would be impossible to drive on the street and it probably gets an engine rebuild every 10 passes. I was talking about a streetable supra that you could drive everyday

User avatar #93 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I was just discussing this with my dad on Saturday because we were driving on the highway and saw both of those cars.

Put one against the other and theyre neck and neck in terms of stats. They just have different personalities; large relatively unsophisticated supercharged V8 in one for that straightline speed, less powerful and very clever electronic aids in a car that can turn corners like no other.

So it's hard to choose.

If someone led me outside and there were parked a GT-R and a C7 z06 and they told me I could have one for free, Id choose the GTR in a heartbeat. But if I had to make the money myself, it would be C7 all day. I dont need to spend 30k extra for the GTR because the C7 does everything so so well.
#99 - ramnarainy (04/16/2014) [-]
If it was up to me I would take something with AWD. I'm not too crazy about HP but I love seeing how well and how fast I can take a turn without getting scared of losing control. I love Subarus' for that reason. Low boxer motor, good suspension, awesomely light, Plus I love the looks of them. But to each their own. Pleasant conversation swimmingprodigy, most of my car conversations with the internet just turn into a brand war and people talking about something they don't know. Have a picture of my wallpaper.
User avatar #123 - swimmingprodigy (04/16/2014) [-]
I feel like AWD would be boring, I want something RWD because I love the feeling of taking a corner slightly too fast and the tail end starts to step out just a bit so you have to expertly correct with counter steering and gentle throttle manipulation.

Same to you.

Concerning Supra and the MR2, you are right for the most parts. But like all cars enthusiasts, it usually ends up being tuned to hell anyways.
Subaru: Because 4x4, and even if it's slow, still 4x4.
And for Mazda, i've never really liked the look of their cars. Like for many japanese car models, they tend to look alot like a "hairdressers car".
The RX-7, which was somewhat forgotten, not really a car i would put money on though.
#36 - thetom (04/15/2014) [-]
I believe the Miata is still the most raced car in the world.

also what makes it a hairdressers car, how did that even come about? i can see that its not aggressive or manly but why a hairdressers car?

User avatar #215 - fuzzysixx (04/11/2014) [-]
Mines a 750 V-4. 1997 Honda magna. I can hit 55 in first at 11,000. I red line at 9,800
User avatar #216 - swimmingprodigy (04/11/2014) [-]
lol that's not healthy for your engine. I hit 32 at the top of 1st gear which is 13,500 red line. Hit 60 at the top of 2nd.

And nice bike; my dad's buying a 2003 Honda Shadow 750 on Monday
User avatar #217 - fuzzysixx (04/11/2014) [-]
I've only done it twice, just to see. It really kicks in at 5500. Shadows are really nice, basically the same as mine, but a V-twin.

Ya my dad wanted a Harley because he wants a cruiser and "muh Murikan lifestyle" but I convinced him to stick with Japanese bikes because of build quality.
User avatar #219 - fuzzysixx (04/11/2014) [-]
Yea, harleys are fun, but they cost like 50% more and are less reliable. Honda all day erryday. I also have a 1975 XL 175, and my Dad has a Valkyrie with the same paint job as my Magna.
User avatar #220 - swimmingprodigy (04/11/2014) [-]
Valkyrie? Man that is one hell of a bike.

I'm more partial to Kawasakis (simply because I have one so I researched that particular brand more) but if I had to choose a Honda it would definitely be the CBX. This thing sounds like a damn F1 car!

User avatar #221 - fuzzysixx (04/11/2014) [-]
Yea, the Valkyrie is awesome. My dad had me ride it after I was riding the XL. 500 lb difference.... Fucking CBX man. Inline 4 is cool...let's make an inline 6!!
User avatar #222 - swimmingprodigy (04/11/2014) [-]
Hell fucking yes.

But I think V-4 engines are so cool. I really really want a Honda VFR400 but they're grey imports in the US so I can't have one. I want a VFR800 though, they're really like the best all around bikes possible

They haven't brought them over here because of the Chicken Tax, fucking LBJ.
User avatar #101 - swimmingprodigy (04/11/2014) [-]
But that's stupid.........the chicken tax is to protect US companies from foreign competition.......Holden and Chevy both belong to GM which is a US......
#202 - pxthreezerothree (04/11/2014) [-]
Ford is a US company but they'd be taxed if they didn't ship the Transit Connect over here as a passenger vehicle. That means they put seats in the thing that are immediately ripped out when they get to the US. The whole thing makes no sense. It's been called "a policy in search of a rationale" because there is no reason to be doing it anymore.

I can respect that, but really I don't see it as shorteror longer. When I cut I do it for 12 weeks, regardless. Personally i'd rather have the 8 months of daily cheat meals than an extra 2 weeks of a six pack, when I know i'm going to have them exactly when I want them anyway.

No, but why bother going strict with a bulk when you're going to have to cut fat later anyway? Live a little, and when you can get away with it go for it. Cutting is when a cheat meal can fuck you up.
User avatar #35 - swimmingprodigy (04/06/2014) [-]
well I mean the less fat you eat now, the less you're gonna have to cut. So your cut will be shorter and you can start it later, thereby spending more time now bulking so when you DO cut you're even more swole than you would be, because you've been bulking.

Trying to ask everyone I encounter on here, haha.
I started a creative writing channel, to share and provide criticism on stories.
You write? Would love some contributors.
User avatar #120 to #119 - swimmingprodigy (09/20/2013) [-]
Well I''ve been told by many people that I'm an awesome writer, but I guess that's only when I have to be; in all honesty I hate writing with a burning passion. I'm not creative at all, I have no imagination, and I'm more of a science person.
User avatar #121 to #120 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
I've been told the same.
I'm creative, but my problem is my ideas sounding cool to all my friends (My current project is a source mod, but I'm writing it first.) Friends fucking ate up the concept and said I pitched it very well, but the things I think of are in my head just developing in there, so I've got soo much detail when I finally explain it to someone. I felt like I sounded high (My pills don't count as high, that shit's just there to calm me down. don't change my thoughts and I'm more concentrated so if anything it helps.)

Do you also have this problem with conveying your concepts after they've just been festering in your head? It's a really frustrating thing to happen and by the time I have it ready to write I don't know where to start, but I still remember every last little detail that I think of.
Sorry for getting fucking off-topic, sheesh, I'm a rambler, skipped the pill this morning.
Sorry if a waste of time.



By the way, depending on what kind of science you're into, (Aeronautics for me, especially, and weapon-science) I could tell you about my story concept.
It involves a space program, but it's action/horror-ish.
Also, main character sports a Mercury spaceuit (best spacesuit) and the MBA GyroJet as signature weapon (because it can fire in space).
If you'd bare with me, I could find you the one I'd written down previously.
Just warning you now though, it's a fucking run on sentence, I was in no way in the mood to tackle the entire story or oragnize my thoughts, so I just jotted down main ideas basically.
#122 to #121 - swimmingprodigy (09/20/2013) [-]
I find when I'm writing essays for school I'll think of an epic line that I want to use in like a minute or two, and then I forget it and I'm so pissed at myself because nothing else sounds a good as what I originally planned. But I'm never written anything nearly as long as what you're describing, so I can't relate. Longest thing I've ever written was a 22-paged technical description of the longboard I made from scratch last summer.

As for the science I'm into; Im mainly into cars (that's my hobby) but when I was little I was really interested in military aircraft because I always wanted to be an Air Force Pilot. Now my major in college is civil engineering so I focus mainly on buildings. But I do know a lot about space because that interested me too when I was a kid. I used to read fucktons of books when I was little; my friends say I'm like a walking encyclopedia. I just know tons of facts about everything. I would kick ass at Jeopardy
#123 to #122 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
10/10 seems like a pretty cool dude. We could definitely get along.

And that was a very frustrating thing for me, too, but doesn't even happen very often anymore, so I am glad I am able to remember so that I am not pressured to write it right on the spot.

I am planning on taking a creative-writing class once I go to college.
Kinda bothers me that they have stuff like Japanese, but they can't have a creative-writing class.

And I assume then that you know of the Mercury Space Project?
User avatar #124 to #123 - swimmingprodigy (09/20/2013) [-]
You're most likely going to have to; everyone freshman is required to take a writing class. Mine was called Freshman Inquiry Question-based Writing Seminar (FIQWS for short). It was a pain in my asshole. And yes, Inquiry Question is redundant. Idk why they chose that name lol.

If you're referring to the early Space Race and NASA trying to put at guy into orbit around space before the Russians, then yes I know
User avatar #126 to #124 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
and yes that is the space program of which I am referencing.

Sounds like my thing, unless if the professor is a pretentious left-wing douchebag who'll shit on you if your work reflects anything but a positive portrayal of complete government control and Totolitarianism/Dystopian societies (Many times I have heard tales of these types of guys treating students they didn't agree with politically like shit.)
User avatar #127 to #125 - swimmingprodigy (09/20/2013) [-]
Nah that's mainly a movies thing. Most professors have to be tolerant. Mine was pretty cool. I had to write an essay about classifying things that usually people never put into categories. For example, my essay was "the three types of guitar players" (I play guitar so I have a sort of inside knowledge). The entire essay was hilarious and my professor loved it. Here's my intro paragraph:

All guitar players seem to have an air of arrogance and think that they're better than everyone else, whether they're just starting out or have been playing for years. All three believe that their guitar playing will make them popular, in one way or another. This is why I don't like guitar players even though I am one myself. Guitar players can be classified into three major categories according to how well they play and how highly they think of themselves: the attention whores, the "I'm gonna be a rock star", and the snobby musicians.
User avatar #128 to #127 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
I agree with that opening 101%

Snobby musicians- Do the douchebags that bring their guitars to bonfires fall under this one?

Also, I wasn't trying to make a jab at all left-wing-ists. I have common ground with many liberal topics, even though I believe in free enterprise, capitalism, and the second ammendment.

I'd kinda put myself under liberitarian, maybe, that's as close I can think of, fiscally conservative, (Gotta admit, liberals=not the best with money Most jews are liberal, but I mean liberals in power don't spend on the right stuff )
but socially liberal i.e gay rights, ( I disagree with a lot of their other social points, but there are a good handful I completely agree with.)
What are you when it comes to politics?

Before I asked all this, I should've found out what country you're in, though, aha
User avatar #129 to #128 - swimmingprodigy (09/20/2013) [-]
Im in New York, US of A.

BTW here's my paragraph about the snobby musicians. I think it's pretty funny:

Lastly we come to the snobby 'professional' musicians. You know these too. Especially living in New York City and going to school in Manhattan, you've seen them. Their parents are artists, but at the tender age of six they had an epiphany (meaning their parents decided for them) that they're going to be professional musicians. They can be easily spotted walking out of Starbucks with a venti-sized caffe vanilla frappuccino light, 1 shot of espresso, 2 sugars, a metric ounce of soy milk, 3 drops of unicorn blood, and a sprinkle of edible gold foil no foam while on their way to the Julliard School. If you say you play guitar around them, they will quiz you. They will judge you. And if you can't repeat the D-flat-7 augmented 5th pentatonic scale in 6th position off the top of your head, they will shun you. The snobby musicians practice guitar for 19 hours a day, or until they get blisters on their blistered blisters. They are more finicky and more anal at getting a piece right than NASA is about landing a Rover on Mars. It is true that they are great musicians; I just don't think they have to be so conceited about it.


As for politics, I try not to involve myself too much in that. It's not that I'm completely ignorant; I know what each party is and what they stand for; I just don't really tend to agree with any one group and it just doesn't interest me enough.

I was one of 4 maintenance guys. 2 of the others had mothers that worked there and the other one had special needs, so in turn, I was the only one my boss was able to express his anger towards without getting problems. Plus, one of the other guys there became a massive douche and started ignoring me after I yelled at him (He was eating ice cream during the hours we still had to work, forcing me to finish up one of the jobs that he didn't do even though I had my two cousins waiting in the parking lot with no airconditioning, [plus one is severely autistic, so he basically made my autistic cousin wait in a hot car for a while because he wanted to eat ice cream]). So after he started being a dick to me, even though he used to be one of my best friends, I decided that the pay (which was far under minimum wage) wasn't good enough, and I left. My boss was also a major douche to me on the way out, claiming I needed my hand held for everything I did, even though he always was the one interfering with what I was doing without me asking for his help.

What makes me laugh though is that I was out for one day, and when I came back the next day, my boss was complaining about how the day's job was done terribly, and that we needed to make sure we never fucked up that badly again. Or, in other words, when I'm not there, things get fucked up.

you dont need constant work. ur 16 that means ur gonna be a junior right?

User avatar #99 to #98 - seniorpokeman (08/09/2012) [-]
yeah, i guess that's true. but being a lifeguard also seems like a job that needs aLOT of fucos, which I do not have :I

Youre SUPPOSED to be focused, but most of the time i zone out. Actually a lot of the time i zone out. No one gives a fuck. Dont worry. I highly recommend it, easiest job on the planet
