    in australia its not exactly rare, the fact that its manual is moreso.

    a lot of people have a hard time with the squareness...

    and i need bigger offsets!

    as for rims, with the car painted a darker color, imagine some white 'drifteks' on it... mmmmmmmm

    dude, what the fuck are you trying to pull here, seriously. you drive a fucking clapped out R31. its such a fucking piece of shit that all you can do is make some sort of VL comment to prop it up.

    so you restored it. nice 1 champ. doesnt change the fact that its still sucks arse. have a look at some of the other rides in this forum...maybe then you will understand...or maybe you will remain a dumbarse dreamer.

    so your that type that buys power in a pretty little box?

    well done. yay for you. i bet you look at it with pride, knowing your hard work has gone into it. or not.

    so you own an s15. why pick on my r31? did you need an ego boost?

    your a cockhead man. stay the fuck outta my thread.

    Looks like a fun project car. It woulda been nice if they'd ever sold 'em in the USA.

    The formula you're looking for is energy = mass * velocity ^ 2. In other words, the corner of your car had 4x as much kinetic energy at 160km/h as it had at 80km/h (or 9x as much energy compared to 53km/h), making it much more capable of pushing your roadkill out of the way without collapsing.

    It's the same principle that makes it possible to shatter a cinderblock with your fist if you hit it fast enough, versus shattering your fist instead if you don't hit it fast enough.

    wow....

    i never knew that, but it makes sense.

    a mate of mine drilled one at about 80-90km/h and it made a mess of his car.

    in that split second between it jumping on the road and me hitting it, i thought i was a dead man.

    it literally landed on the road about 3 metres in front of me. i didnt even get to back off the accelerator before hitting it.

    it did 160 on lpg (84kw)

    it did 210 on lpg (84kw)

    vl comments, slight bit of rivalry. we share the same motor.

    im pretty sure ours have more power from factory though. (n/a)

    and the skyline handles a tad nicer and has a nicer feeling steering box (ive owned both)
