Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

As did the JL. Most seem to still go aftermarket. lIfT KiTz The moran OEM engineers can't do anything right. Actually, it's the cost that drives people away from OEM. The OEM accessories development cost is way higher than some dudes in a pole barn in Idaho. There are plenty of big aftermarket, lik...

Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

Yea quite curious myself. It is essentially a modern less quirky FJ cruiser. Should ride and accelerate much better than a :wrangler: but I don't see it being as off road capable. Also 0 aftermarket which is kind of a big selling point for the jeeps. It'll take at least 3 years for aftermarket to b...

Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

If there was as "vast majority" of people who don't modify this entire aftermarket wouldn't exist. I think Jeep has proven over and over again that it isn't a "normal" vehicle, people do modify them constantly spending billions, not millions, that's really unlike most other vehicles. Well, there's ...

I don't see why it wouldn't be as capable OUT OF THE BOX. It will be immensely more difficult to modify for extreme wheeling, whereas a :jeep: can take a 2" lift for $1k and stuff 37's ZFG.

Camaros are much faster than an M2 in the correct trims. Only thing is, they’re hideous.

It’s also much easier to drive an R. Which is also Nearly as fast or as fast as a C5 out of the box. Deadly combo. :iono: the R lap times don’t seem all that :impressive: The Throttle House bros did a track comparison and the Veloster N/Hype R mopped the floor with the R. Kind of irrelevant the poi...

It is what it is... you pay the M "tax" and get the M2, and it is just as good or better than any slowmaro or challenger. At around the upper end of their mid range models. Except for making fuel stops all the time and not having any room for wine, women and shotguns. Trunk in m2 is better than slo...

Did someone say BMW's??? Speaking of, I absolutely despise their current direction. First off, the 2 series gran coupe that's FWD (or fwd based x-drive for that matter or whatever bullshit) and call the 4 banger a M car called "M235i"? get the fuck outta here. Without the kidneys replaced with a tr...

Dunno... my 2019 R drives great, but refined??? hmmm, the fact that 75% of the "oh shit" handles on the headliner have failed in the first 6 months and were never used doesn't scream refinement. :lol: Seriously, 3 of the 4 handles have dropped the pin and spring that keep them suspended, so now the...

I did 1100 miles on the R on Monday night-Tuesday night driving to and from Vegas and had a great time. Even pulling about 14 hours of driving time in 24 hours I really wasn't too tired.

STIFF :mindblown: maybe because I had there DCC or whatever those useless shocks were on the 335i, but they were certainly not stiff... Is your M sport on 18"s or 19s? Yessir. The car rides worse than the C6 with DRM Bilsteins. Even with 18 inch PS4S not runcraps. They are not the adjustable damper...
