first to RETARTED moderator. THANK YOU FOR MOVING MY DAMN THREAD. THATS FINE. BUT DON't CHANGE THE TITLE TO ASK IF IT WOULD INCREASE THE HORSEPOWER TO MAKE ME LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT.
I WAS NOT ASKING ABOUT THE HORSEPOWER. SEAT OF THE PANTS FEEL.
AND ALSO, TO WHOEVER SAID THE HCI COMBO sucked. read the damn description, i already know that. im sorry, retarted people **** me off.
If you shed 200lbs from your car (plus the light weight rims) plus alum. drive shaft plus batt, in back. You really think it won't feel faster?
thanks everyone for the non retarted posts. idk im in a bad mood. mainly the mod pissed me off changing the intent of my thread title...
Ok, the mod fk's with everyone's post when there in the wrong section.
Organization is key to life.
If you want a real life example - go put a 200lb person in your passenger seat. Drive around for an hour, take turns, accelerate, brake.
Take said person out of your car. Drive around some more, the amount of 'performance difference' you notice, is your gain.
Also, the passenger is a legit example. Weight distribution doesn't matter at this moment.
Lowering your car an inch will have a better 'distribution' factor then moving weight around.
I will go into hardcore physics and explain center of mass and weight distribution for you - if needed.
What you did is somethings that people generally do, just to have it off the check list.
If your going to reduce weight, or move it, then reduce all of it.
Im not saying start removing everything, im just saying thats the theory.
Id also like to point this out.
You spelled retarded wrong three times in your' angry' post.
Im not one for grammar, but this was very ironic.
