Cool car... I like those cars as big lazy cruisers

yeah I've got no problem storming right up hills where others fall steadily further behind.. but I think the best I could do in a 1/4 mile run would be maybe a 17.5 at some slow speed. I dunno, I've never run it so I really don't know. One of these days.

It's got a lot of low end torque, but it just doesn't breathe up high at all - still have my stock single exhaust

Once I get some proper exhaust going, things ought to change

Ok looking at Mazda's website, it appears it was a Mazda 5

yep, it was one of these



edit: further googling shows this little lunch box to do the 1/4 in the low 17 second range? hmm.. guess my car isn't quite that slow after all

If you're trying to insinuate that you were using "brake" in a witty fashion, you're wrong.

I bet you think that KE=mv^2 too.

Don't fuck with me.

If he really wants to be anal F = m * d^2x/(dt)^2

d^2x/(dt)^2 = dv/dt = a
