so you're one of them that loves straight line performance.

Me, I need high speed twisties and 1/2 my cars weight worth of downforce keeping me stuck to the ground.

I used to be a little FWD honda nut until I learned the error of my ways. Honda makes great engines but it's a pity they are FWD...fwd cars can be quick, but once you start competing against RWD cars there's just no competition unless you're on a very low speed track like auto-x or something.

have you ever heard of an 800hp lingenfelter escalade... they run 12.5 in the 1/4... craziness for an SUV..... HEY KIDS.. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO TO SCHOOL WITH A 0-60 IN 4 SECONDS!!!

yup of course I've heard of Lingenfelter

If i could have 3 cars it would probably be a custom Ford GT, a R34 Skyline GTR, and a supercharged k20a lotus exige.

hmm....wouldn't mind a E36 turbo m3 either.

ooh i hope i make lots of money

Well i'm not a fanboy by any means, but i hope the new ATI cards really contend with the 8800ultra, even smash them i dont care, because that will drive competition. If ATI can smash the 8 series, nvidia will want to smash the 3800 series with its 9 series cards. Win Win for the consumer. With ATI out of the picture, nvdia will dominate the card industry and we will suffer as a result.

ATI & AMD aren't dead, but I do feel they're a bit behind at the moment.
