Ok this is new thought i had as nearly everyone has one a car that is, some are small some are big some slow some powerful, remember be honest no lying it's pointless it's no compition ok, basically we'll chat about anything weather it be modding painting, brands etc ok.

So i guess i'll go first

Myself and my fiancee have a tuned VRX Mitsibishi Magna 2002 model.

It has straight 3.5 litre engine as for rest it's modded.
It has Wide body VRX kit on it .
Colour is Dimond coated Metallic Dark Blue, look's purple at night.
It's sitting on custem lowered suspension witch is adjustable.
The tyer's are 18 inch low profile Yokihamma's
with 18 inch AMG chrome mag's
Under the hood mod's include Large K'N air filter.
also we have large illegal extractor's.
The computer chip is MOTEC M80 racing computer, which supplies nearly 25% increase in torque and kilowatts at the wheel's.
The engine has also been port and polished to add torque and give better performance.
All engine part's were specially custom built for our car, again to add power and allow better performance.
Ther are alot more however i am not to understanding of mechanics of engine.

Moving on our car run's on Quad cam shift instead of normal because car to powerful now for normal.
Our brakes are ventilated caliper racing brakes, think they by Brembo, need to look.
The exhaust has no brand name as it was built from scratch by the workshop however it contain's some part's by HKS this i know.It's size is only 3.5inches in diameter but it is this size to balence power with rest of car.

our Gear box was originally a straight 5speed manual.
However to compensate for added torque and thrust we had the gear box modified by this i mean it was grided so the gear chage spaces are smaller alowing us to get into gear faster.As before it was stalling on us.

Meaning now when we drag someone off by the time they reach second were in fourth.get the picture.

Finally our interrior is leather black, also suede, with Clarion soudsystem because ya gotta have ya tunes when ya cruze yea.

Some times we travel with the laptop in car to adjust the rev's through the Motec it's way cool man.
Well that's it without me looking at my specs sheet's.

So Now who's got a car :clap2: :clap2:here's some pics taken wit my phone

Hey cool, you're using a Motec M800 too.. My husband uses one too.. So it's not mine.. Anyways, it an old Honda CRX.. Completely stripped off.. 4th engine! He's blown it a couple of times.. *haha* I don't really know his specs for the drag car.. I'll check it out and keep you posted..

He's got a 'saturday-night' car in waiting too.. Its a Nissan Stagea.. But that car's been in an accident so it's being done from practically scratch..

Mine is just a normal VW Beetle.. :P Nothing special about it, except that it's mine..

Nice car, I like the rims. My dad has a new Citroen C5, and hopefully I'll get a Citroen Xsara, which I want to modify in the fast&furious style. I'll post the pictures when I'm done with it, thats a promise.

ah yes the rim's for some reason only thing anyone allway's comment on about any car, wierd but cool you want mod car however it's not cheap my car now is worth about 100thousand aussie dollers, plus it run's on premium unleaded performance fuel also costing a fortune, still if u just want it to look pretty that's cheaper buy decent body kit, give new pearlesent paint job, wack on some rim's these will cost abit though, also you'll need good tyers to give good traction or you ain't going anywhere.As for your chice of car is not my taste it's to small and not enough power imo, but it's your's and it could look good let us see those pics when ya have something cool :byebye:

Real nice looking badboy! And we share brand at least.. I've got a Carisma from -97.. Not styled at all but there is at least a kick-ass stereo, leather, acc and all that. I'm more of a comfort kinda guy. We've (wife and me) also got a Chevy Blazer -95 which I rather drive.

And for speed I've got a Kawasaki ZZR1100. That's a cheap way of blasting past Porsches and Ferraris..

@PhayzedButterfly

Your parents have a good reason to watch out for you.

It IS dangerous to ride bikes! I have been close to quitting so many times. And I take it a lot easier these days. Getting old, I guess..

Three years ago my best friend got killed in a single-accident. And last year was no hit either. One of my best friends brother also got killed (head-on collision).. Also last year, my brother's friend got bumped from behind by a truck and pushed over to oncoming traffic and was run-over and killed..

Sorry for glooming this thread.. :1:

Tell me about it :(

I came off mine last year at about 90mph and was very lucky indeed.
I couldnt walk for 2 weeks,caused over £1000 worth of damage and still havent repaired it due to not wanting it to happen again. :(
