Yeah it's a stat that's kind of useless for typical driving, but I find it downright interesting from a technical standpoint. Gotta give props to the LS1 for causing a hell of a lot less heartbreak over the years though!

Oh, man. What kind of mods did you have on that MR2 (SW20, I'm guessing?)

Yup SW20. I literally just sold it last week. Here is a copy/paste from my for sale post. To be honest though, my friends LS1 swapped FC was one of the most fun cars I've ever driven. And the FD has to be one of the most beautiful cars to ever come out of Japan.

I need a more mature non-boyracer toy now that I've hit 25. I'm torn between a NSX or Elise. I almost went Porsche 996 but, the car is downright ugly... those headlights!
