That just looks rediculious.

Go home mercedes you're not a rally car.

lol, because of lipoly batteries and the ridiculous power systems in just about everyone's robot, things like steam or fog cause huge amounts of panic. We've used dry ice in the past and it's caused worry from arena wranglers, and we usually bring an electric hot water pot for making tea and instant noodles and without fail somebody thinks its smoke.

Lol. Welcome to years back, when I constantly did the same thing when it was HPF and some other forum sponsor who was banned. HPF is the main forum sponsor, and gets all the goodies.

HPF is actually a sack of sh!t, and everyone who constantly, and on a daily basis, rides their balls and defends their bullcrap can be places in a similar category.

How are you going to make money once you're out of college? And even if you did have the money, that doesn't change the fact that you have a short attention span and would sell the car, engine swap or not, in about a year.

Add that to the part that you would never get a euro S50 legalized in california and it's a guaranteed plan of failure or <2 year car for you.

According to the rules stickied at the top of the forum, if you make a thread about street racing it's a ban. They made a thread about creating a hood for 2 purposes

1. asthetic
2. retaining it's shape "at high speed"

then they show a video of them "testing" during an illegal street race with a pirate car.

So they've made this hood to take your finely tuned German "ultimate driving machine" into a ricey import looking street racer that won't fall apart when going up against superior car in an illegal street race.


That GTR literally blew his pannels off

I know the rules. But the $$$ might talk louder than the rule book.

Of course, and I don't blame them. This site is a business that people invest time into for a return on their investment. I really don't want to get banned. I've never had any infractions...
