I can tell you we put a 19t in a guys 103GT car with TC foams on it for carpet. It was too fast. The car got light on the straight if you didn't watch it and it would spin

No truer truth has ever been more true in all of truey truerland. What the hell is F1 thinking? They look completely silly now. They wouldn't look so bad if the rear wing was a little wider and the front a little narrower.

Is it just me or does the front arms on the 15th Anniversary look like they're carbon reinforced?

maybe honda just thought the cars were too ugly. on top of max wielding his whip, paddle, and SS duds and forcing them all to bend over and take his big ole bernie up the ........................... medal of honour lol.

sidebar, any1 make a truer for these wheels? old days it was cool that there wasnt 1 and the foam was so hard that it didnt help. that and they looked real.
