    That video's fantastic but it makes me feel stupid for knowing so little about European history :sigh:

    A paltry 312 last time it was dynoed. There's more to a car than it's power :) I know which sounds better :) Muscle cars aren't about cornering on rails, and as for power, I can get 700bhp from it by spending an extra £6k. How much is that Jap hairdresser's car? :)

    Thing is, though, by all reports; The Mustang from the series Pook cruises about in apparently don't handle that badly for the kind of power they can be made to chew up the rear tyres with, Still not exactly a four wheel drive Lambo on rails, but still not godawful from what I've heard.

    Then again; I don't even drive yet, so I'm one to talk. I can only repeat what I've heard before.

    It doesn't no... but it's still ****! compared to that Celica! LOL.. I'll be the first to admit. That's the fun of a Muscle car. Noise, theatre, drama, smoke... hellfire and brimstone.... all on a shoestring budget. It ain't no track weapon though.

    ..but the noise. It's now on straight pipes.. no silencers.. just the catalysts. New induction system on order.. waiting for delivery from the US. Then it should sound like this

    Indeed there is a lot more to a car than power. It's all a matter of taste! Some people like a good V8, some like a NA screamer and some love the sound of a turbo whine and the screamer pipes singing to them :D I love muscle cars and have a great amount of respect for them as well as NA engines, but as I've said before, I never wanted any of them as much as I want the Celica ;) I laughed at the hairdresser comment - my hairdresser actually used to drive a gen 7! :hehe: She sold it and bought a McMerc though!

    To answer your question, I think the GT4-X cost them at least £60K to build. There might be 10 grand in the engine alone, and with all the WRC parts they used on the chassis and drivetrain plus the custom gearbox etc, it's a big bill.

    And that's what I intend on building it to be, a track weapon. Not that I don't like the idea of having a car like yours that's just fun to drive and sounds great, but I just cannot wait for the day that I get the GT4 to a track for the first time! :)

    With all due respect, piss off.

    I'll chat with someone about something that was posted if I want to. If you don't like it, keep scrolling.

    Manners, Unicorn. Use them. An apology might be a nice idea too.

    We all nice and calm now? Good.

    Do as you will folks, but just remember that this thread is here until we close it, and sooner or later, we will close it, just like the last one (assuming a previous videos thread existed and it's closed), and then there's no more VIDEO ( < < < THIS ALWAYS SAID VIDEOS) thread for a good long while - so don't crap the thread up, and keep the quality high.
