Why do people want upgrades if the car straight out of the box is performing very well?

Everything can always be improved, even if it ls 1% improvement in speed/reliability or even comfort or driver preference.

The problem with most drivers (excuse me if I do offence someone ) is that they can not use the 1% improvement to drive better. Looks and personality is mostly the reason for those who haven't driven the car yet.

i do understand factory drivers but some non fac. drivers give there findings here and never go to major events where it really shows against more seasoned competition at sedan worlds some drivers put on some parts for testing but then the majority of them took the parts off when it came to quals. because it didnt improve there peformance i look at that as something i dont want if it dont work for them why would i risk it but like YB said its preference they bought the car they can do what they like with 1 cup of the kool-aide some parts are needed just to make some chassis work at all

agreed.............if you cannot run 20 laps in a row withina tenth or two then their is no need to modify anything for results.

However alot of people in the hobby actualy like the "hobby" or modifying part of the hobby. It is like putting 24's on your Escalade or a billet grill or painting flames on your sportbike or chroming out your Harley. It is mostly about having fun.
