Bench Tuning

Random post tonight.  If I’m not working, I’m polishing my rims so I’m having trouble finding quality things to blog about.

I love forums.  It’s incredible how everyone becomes an expert behind a screen name.   The car in debate on our local forum is if a recently finished Zenki S14 with an RB25det is rice or not.  I said yes.  GT-R badges when the car is not a GT-R, nor the engine from a GT-R, the Extreme Dimensions body kit and huge wing all point to someone living back in 2001 when The Fast And The Furious first came out.

TCFesS13:  not digging those gt-r badges & the wing is ricey, but sick two-tone

SlipperyDoodoo:  ricey for having a fully functional wing? stfu (non-personally) because if it does have a properly tuned RB its Anything BUT showy rice and probably actually needs that wing. (funny all of those pictures are of this “check out my RB” with the bonet down)

its kinda retarted that people can’t even have a little downforce on cars that actually need it without being labeled because of movies and un-nessesarily installed wings on every make and model of hondas and other FFs in the past.. they DO have a purpose you know. not just “oh… fast and the furious”

come to the marine base and look on the first right of craigstreet, THATS rice (01 altima w/ dual 3″ mufflers and similar adjustable wing).

TCFesS13:  the car has a goddamn RB25DET probably pulling about 450 hp on an island where you can’t even do 70 without breaking the speed limit. now tell me how a “fully functional wing” even matters when it MAYBE gives you 3-4 hp but nearly ruins the entire look of the otherwise very sleek car. but hey, if he wants to put the diamond back in the rough with a couple skyline badges, foot high wing & tinted lights, that’s all up to him – but you can’t tell me it doesn’t scream fast and furious because you’d be lying.

defunctxillusion:  lolololol last time i checked a wing doesnt give you any hp at all. its not even connected to any part of the drive train.

TCFesS13:  what i originally meant was that the amount of speed gained from a wing like that would be equivalent to less than 5hp – otherwise unnoticeable

but then i lold and realized downforce doesn’t increase speed, it creates drag. drag decreases speed. my bad.

SlipperyDoodoo:  wow dude… wings don’t add horsepower they add downforce which really helps to keep you from lifting off the ground and loosing traction in turns / prevents your car from catching wind lift and spinning out or rolling your car. and at any speed that makes this possible you will likely die.

you wanna mod your car to have 450hp you can’t be always planning to do the speed limit so that statement makes no sense and you know it.

fast and furious is just a movie. and if you THINK about it, those movies are a big reason that there even is a big aftermarket for racing parts etc. in the USA. otherwise more than half of you guys wouldn’t even be tuning your cars at all and the last few of you would be doing it the old school way and fabricating and innovating to try and make your cars faster.

Moofia:  not exactly a NACA wing selection..  kid you must be high to think that wing is anything but F&TF its just as cheap$hiT as the rest of the kit..  (lotsa work tho to paint it evenly)

reintr0ducing (ME!):  HOORAY WE GET TO BENCH TUNE/RACE AGAIN!

i like the fact that the cars pearl blue because it has been scientifically proven that the pearl color helps wind resistance and lower the overall drag coefficiency that in the long run help to lower your times on the touge and give you a better top end speed on the the nimitz highway dragstrip.

the color blue was a good choice because it’s the color of water which helps to keep the engine vitals cooler. it’s equivalent to running an extra radiator.

i just hope to god you didn’t weld diamond plate floorboards into your car because the slightest danger to the intake manifold will cause the rivets to come undone and your floor will drop out.

I was born to be a smartass.  It’s just not my cup of tea.  Can’t hate on his motor though, that’s for sure.

VOM! That’s awful. Calling that rice is insulting real honda ricers. I can’t give it love for the RB25 cause I have no proof. Just another lame wanna be GT-R.

It really all depends on whether the car will be used on the track.

no track on oahu. there’s only an autocross course in our stadium parking lot.

Then yeah ditch the blacked out tails, the spoiler,and gtr badges.

Comment by enoezam

haha. that thread is classic. such a rice bucket

Comment by eseer

This car can be turned around to my standards. Taller gt wing with the brackets set wide not narrow like it is now and remove those gay ass GTR badges. I can over look the two tone and the smoked out tails and headlights, but those are straight facepalm.
