Drone is a resonance phenomenon. Resonance occurs when something has very little damping. In the case of exhaust systems, it means very little restrictive damping is present (good for performance,...

There may be some resolution issues with that technique, as well. ;) Resolving position down to tenths of a second on a speeding car might be a tall order even for GPS.

Yes, that is exactly what I have in the rear now...255/50r18. I have to say, it has turned my handling undesirably over to the understeer side (or stubbornly neutral, to be more precise). They...

I wondered if there would be difference between a WRX and STI. Thanks for clearing that up, BigDaddyWiz! Sounds like DR's are an effective avenue to level the playing field with awd cars.

I figured about the 350Z. Those other v6 coupes are getting down to the 5 sec range for 0-60? I did not know that. Cadillac one is pretty interesting. I wouldn't expect it, but I suppose it is...

stiff sidewalls on Nitto 420s?

Marketing material claims stiffer sidewalls than the average tire. Is there any truth to it, or is it just bunk?

What other cars are very close to the RT, as far as acceleration?

For example, can you race an RT against a Nissan Z? Does it matter if it is a 350z vs a 370z?

Can you race an awd WRX or Evo?

How about personal experiences racing against other cars where you...
