      Civic Si will get near 40 mpg highway on 87 and comes in a 4 door, that would likely be my pick. I almost bought one over my 86 last year.

      It's hard to imagine a scenario where I would buy any new motorcycle, not when so many awesome ones already exist for a fraction of the cost.

      Since there's no other comparable car on the market, yes that was the point. If you want to play with boost in a nice new little manual roadster, start with a boosted one with a strong transmission....

    6. Poll: I haven't looked in a long time, but I thought...

      I haven't looked in a long time, but I thought the tuned Abarth guys were getting close to 200 hp at the wheels vs like 160 in a stock miata?

      RX8 is nothing like a miata anyway. It's closer in driving experience to a Corvette. 15 inch longer wheelbase, more rigid chassis, center of mass further back, and a lot more car out in front of you....
    8. Poll: The point was that you can actually buy a turbo...

      The point was that you can actually buy a turbo miata from the factory. A 5 minute ECU tune on that gets you into pretty cool territory without much hit to resale, vs thousands of dollars in an...

      The contis have similarly low limits in the dry and wet FWIW. You can almost pretend that you're always driving on a dirt road. The massive torque from my stock 86 can light them up.

      Fiata 124...
    11. The contis still feel like marshmallows in the...

      The contis still feel like marshmallows in the dry on my 86, but 245s on a 4000 lb car should probably feel a bit sharper than the 205s on my 2700 lb car. I plan to try more pressure in them this...
    12. Poll: I don't know if there's a car on the planet that...

      I don't know if there's a car on the planet that is set up exactly how I would want it from the factory. Even a GT3RS with all the right options would be going straight to a shop for shorter gearing...

      The technical achievements are impressive, and that does seem to be what sells so I can't fault companies for chasing numbers... but they're generally not making the cars better to me since I'm not...

      More like the 997, but yeah basically.

      I know that "winning" street races is more important to most people than how a car actually feels/sounds/looks though so whatever. I'm OK with being a loser...

      More power just means more weight, size, and cost. Speed limits haven't changed. I still want an E90/92 M3 personally.

      Exactly. It's not a race car. If you can put rubber bushings all over, then you can put a hatch in the back.

      I guess hatches add a little weight and noise too, but the utility is worth it....

      Hatches make cars soooo much easier to use. I hate that the 86/mustang/camaro all have tiny little trunk mail slots while their ancestors had huge hatches.

      Corvettes are like that, or at least they were in the C5/C6 era.
