4 cylinder 370Z.
So, a new 240SX?

The current supply is pretty dried up since all of the drift bros keep slamming them into walls.
I keep wondering why they haven’t started drifting C5s yet.

Yeah
Fled can give insight but I think the DI motors are fairly robust. A base 2014 era cayman would be rad as hell. Drives better than almost anything out there.
:dat: and they're actually pretty reliable from what I understand.

Man... a lot of people seem to love the Cayenne, I guess it must drive well for an SUV, but just does nothing for me personally. Since Macan is like a "sporty" CUV, I wouldn't doubt for Cayenne either. But definitely better than his 2013 Q7 3.0 TDI. It's the only car in his household and his wife w...

DYELB: The Gainz Train

Well, Wendler's BBB program suggests doing volume work for higher reps at like 60% 1 RM... that's what I normally do but my strength gainz have been pretty :pussy: so :notsure: if I would recommend the same. I really need to mix it up and try something new. Wendler is on the juice though so that an...

well I'm doing my thing over here. I think maybe I am making progress but just having trouble adjusting to program. Might need to go lighter on volume lifts or do a second back off set. yesterday was press and deadlift day. hit my 1x5 at 145 on press, and the 130 4x5 volume work. that's a solid PR ...

Miata is great but it's a light weight, simple sports car at $30K... if you want to step up to something with more powah, the Supra makes sense at $40K... at $60K, most will go Corvette or mid-engine Porsche. the 4 pot in the Supra will be about 230 or 240 hp, and with the extra weight will be same...

I vote fun car. Camaro was awesome. Get one of those. Sell later when baby pops out. Or get a Charger RT and just keep it. Tons of room for making babies in the back.

Yes, it's coming. No, the pricing isn't released. I agree on the price/spec.

If I got a 987.2 or whatever number vomit the older caymans are i would dump the fucking awful navi radio and get a pioneer or alpine stereo.
