Re: Does everyone get used to power???
I don't know, that's a good question, I'm kinda wondering the same thing as well.
I need an hks ignition amplifier to really turn up the boost on my car, and I have been holding off and holding off getting it cause I'm like why the fuck do you need more moneyto be fast, gurrl?!! And I just don't really have the funds to spend right now, work is slow as fuck and I dropped a ton of money on it already, and i'm like MAN, another 400?? sheeesh. But my 95 vr4 is about 420hp to the wheels, and when I first got it back, I was like this thing is scary FAST, OMG, omg! But after awhile, I sorta gotten used to it like meh. And I never thought I would.
I was like man, I'm settled for life brah!! Iz gots the fastest car on ze planet, but nah, not really, in retro spec it's actually slow as FUCK. To think, there are cars running around with 6, 7, 8, 9, 1000hp! What. the. literal. FUCK.
I cannot imagine.
I got raped on the highway by like a 600hp corvette. Literally, it raped me, it blew my doors off, like I wasn't even moving!
For example, this mazda 3, or something pulled up next to me on the highway today, and I wasn't going to race cause I didn't want to waste the gas, but then I didn't want him thinking I was a pussy, give the vr4 a bad rep, ya know? So I dropped it down in to 4th from 6th, mind you this is a 16g car so it was kinda dumb to drop into 4th, but anyway, it started building and building boost, and it felt like it took foooreverrrr to get going. Really, I was like looking down at my wristwatch at the same time, and making a phone call too, like WTF man? And basically it never really got to that scary fast feeling where it felt like the car was pulling me, instead I was just waiting around, like wtf? But i look in the rear view mirror and dude was wayy the fuck back there, and I was like oh I guess it is kinda fast, and I looked at the speedo and it was like 140. So ya, I guess it's fast, but in retro spec, it's not.
