Top speed doesn't mean crap, it's all about handling. If you've gone 100MPH on a straight, boring highway, whoopie doo. But going 50MPH in a twisty mountain pass (if that's even possible) is a different story.....

I've had my Kawasaki up to about 125 MPH or so. Fastest I've ever gone in a car is 210, but I wasn't driving. I was in the BMW/McLaren F1 at the Car & Driver 50th anniversary celebration at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Here's a pic of me getting in the car:



The driver sits in the center of the car and the passenger seats are on either side to the rear.

There's a couple cool vids of the car if you search for 'em. They were giving rides called Hot Laps in some race cars and some really expensive cars. One of the cars was a Subaru race car driven by Petter Solberg. He started drifting around the entire course and even was sitting in the driver's window while doing donuts. Here's a vid of Petter (you can see the donut marks):

Then once he started doing it the BMW drivers decided they would do it too, and this was all with passengers! It was a freaking riot:

EDITED TO ADD:

here's a really good compilation of the fun at Indy, and it shows Petter doing his donuts!

180-230hp turbo. tons of potential.


I wish, unfortunately my days with 323 are over!! . couldn't keep up with the maintance and repair cost let alone tuning it! . Most of the money goes to petrol, insurance and repairs(had an accident and lost count on how many things went wrong after a driver side door repair).


indeed. maintenance hurt me as well.

but, when it comes to a car that's a great high-hp-potential platform that no one would ever guess it's fast, it's gotta be the BP-Ts and the Galant VR4's lol.


Galant VR is a nice car with the multi link susp and good engine

i'm only a fan of the 91-92 models though. AWD, turbo 4G63 later put into the first evo series in '92... throw in the leather interior made by AMG before AMG was contracted by Mercedes and you have yourself an all-around nice car.
