call me an asshole for this little rant im about to go on, i really dont care, ive been on c4ag long enough to go ahead and spill this.......
if this is were the ae86 scene is heading, were doomed. its about to be an inflated market filled with teenage honda hipsters, overpriced buckets of shits............... oh wait, thats already happening:viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4740
ok dont get me wrong, i love a slammed car, especially an ae86, but dont be scared of it. the coupe in my sig was WAAAY lower than that, and Actually got driven.....Daily 88miles....swapped....tracked....circuit.....drifted legal and not so much. congrats...you did a burn out and popped the clutch in first around a corner....thats it? you can afford work meisters, but not actual jdm corner lenses for the bumper, or let alone fasten the bumper in the proper fasion? whats the point of taking an iconic sport compact car, that is truly a drivers car, and making it an all looks hard parker, that every theif in 100 miles is eyeballing? dont get me wrong, there are some clean aspects of the car, but there are also some aspects that scream, "im in it for the attention, look at me im bawlin' on mom and dads dime" which please, i mean no offence to the owner here, just saying, as me.....a person thats owned 5 ae86 from stock to radical, to magazine cover, to missle status, this is how this looks to your average ae86 true enthusiest.
now, set that car sideways in the top of 3rd, with smoke rolling, and a "finished" bumper at least, and id raise an eyebrow, but this video does nothing but make me wanna shake my head. dont wanna hear bull about a stock 4ag, weak oem engine, blah, blah, blah......and yes i know this car is now swapped with a v6......whatever. but if its gonna look the part, shouldnt it be the part? ive watched guys with 30hp 4ac's lay it down in the mountains..... i was let down by this lack of "hoonage" portrayed here.
if im stepping on toes here, im sorry, but im sure i speak for more than just myself here. maybe im just being an old cantankerous dick head......
but in the end to each his own, clean car......sorta.
