I don't know what all that stuff is, but California seems like a bunch of jerks.

Eh, the spirit of the regulation is in the right place.

The implementation leaves something to be desired, but meh. I still pass the sniffer test that's mandated in my locality.

I'm sure it is... the recent coal roller fad is disappointing for sure.

But it's as if CA is on every label nowadays and they come off like a bunch of know it alls. "CA knows X to be Y" and all that. :p

There's a "contains contaminants known to the state of CA" plaque on the outside my parking garage at work.

I drew a thousand tiny wieners on my coworker's whiteboard, since he wasn't in his office all day.

Then I wrote "NICE BOOBS" underneath them.

I may have had two doubles of whiskey when I got home from work today.

You “may have” drank whiskey? You’re not sure?

That made me look up the torque profile for my Fiesta's engine. Yeah the numbers are a tad lower but it still seems a little bonkers. http://www.fiestafaction.com/forums/thre...no-Results

That being said the stock wheels are terrible. I think I'll keep my winter tires mounted on them and get some black spoked rims for my all seasons.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

The torque seems pretty flat to me.

I made a thing! I was asked by a client to create a video which I had not done previously. After some stumbling around in Premier Pro I got a half way decent video assembled from crappy smartphone footage.

Kinda glad I didn't do the S1000R. That woulda been a bit much for me.

because I never had a turbo before, or a car with decent horsepower at low revs.
This think is literally the most powerful car I've ever had. Which is kinda sad, but still true.

A turbo that isn’t liable to pipe up without warning, spin around and wrap itself (and you) around the nearest tree in a split-second, isn’t worthy of the name. I’m talking 930, baby. Rear wheel drive, rear engine, lag like Springfield Gorge.

That's the '80s and '90s turbo experience.

Mine are pretty laggy as compared to modern turbos, too.  Nothin' until 3k, and then poof, you've got no traction.

You two say that like it's a good thing. My torque kicks in at 2k.

2K? I thought our Suby WRX was early at ~2500.
I miss the old WRX, 2004, that kicked in at ~3400. Forced you to keep the RPMs up. It was a riot to drive.
