I get confused silences and more questions than i care to answer when i talk about why I want lowend power.
especailly by Ronnie (Imran).
The reason you probably hear it so much from me is because i have had a major impression left on me from cars that have huge lowend power and carry it through to the top end. i LOVE that feelin of being able to not have the transmission shift and it feels like you're being rocketed forward without delay.
Another thing is when my mom drove my car, she was like "WHY is this so slow?!?!" i told her "stop poosie-footin the throttle" about five minutes later she finally did dig into it further and found out it had gobs of power (mrore than the car she drove at the current time) down low (she didn't take it past 3500rpm
....next thing out her mouth was "you dont need this car...it's too fast"
this is the nature im looking for.
With most centrifugal superchargers you have that nasty whistle/whine all the time (a no go for me). with roots superchargers (if it was that easy to install in teh first place) they are instant on and often loose power as the spin up higher because of over heating air. Lysholm was the only supercharger i would really consider, but again, that's instant on and i want the car to be able to creep around off boost and still be pretty darn quick.
for one, i've driven VR4s, 1.8t's, and several big engine oldschooler american iron types of vehicles. torque i love
and if you're not a dumbass trying to spin your tires all the time you can actually put it down pretty well.
"RPM=Rapidly Pulverizes Motors"
-i cant remember who i heard that by
Im not an RPM fanatic...im a lowend yank me to 120 in 8 seconds fanatic. it's just more fun when you feel like your car has more in reserve
but i DO agree...top end hp is needed in some applications.
