well a lot of people on here will not like it because of the kit, fenders, spoiler, tach, floormats etc, stuff like that, so be prepared for some heat.

 

its not really my taste, but i respect the work done to the car. theres a lot of cosmetic stuff and a decent amount of motor work as well to go along with it. what kind of numbers are you putting down with the boosted set-up? also i didnt see anything you tuned it with, have you done that yet?

this guy is already ok in my book. I gave him some crap about his car after his first post and he took it very well.

 

You already know my opinion: I think it would be cheaper to start over then to try and remedy the problems this car has.

 

The three things that are an immediate negative to me are the stickers on the doors, the absurdly large spoiler and the altezza tails. All three I think you could rework a little and the appeal of the car would go up immensely. Do some nice smoke tinted tails to fit your red/black theme, put on a more subtly sized spoiler - something a bit lower to the deck would look excellent, and save the stickers for applying to the side of your tool boxes.

 

Aside from these three I mentioned above I won't further knock it. It does look well crafted.

 

edit: I just had a thought! His ride is about the perfect one for an Ameripol (sp?) glasstop - don't do a carbon skin, get the glass one.

All del sols should get the Ameripol top. It's just so ded secksay.

 

Good points on how to improve his ride. I think that would help a lot but different front/rear bumpers would have to be added to the list for my tastes.

Thanks for all the information.

 

I havent ran a Dyno or anything yet, but the estimated HP is 190hp but we think its running closer to 200hp. But I havent had the time or money to run a drag strip or dyno.

 

and to busted is 1- I think ill pass on more of a drop. The race suspension I put into it put an 1 1/2 inch drop, and I have already ripped off or busted the front bumper multiple times, and have even busted the back bumper once.

 

And Wannabstuntn- Me personally have somewhere between $9,000 & $9,500 dollors in it, plus my brother has given me parts.

change the front bumper, its the cheesiest and worst front bumper there is for a del sol, get something a bit cleaner and with less vents. also change the rear bumper, the two just dont suit the Sol at all. the spoiler i aint keen on, not cos its a whopping big one, ive got one myself n i love it, just get one that is a bit more stylised n doesnt look like its just stuck on there...other than that, its all lookin good!

In all fairness, I don't see his kit or his wing as any worse than yours, sebby.

 

He seems pretty cool. Hope he sticks around. We need a rather intelligent member who has a flashy car to increase the diversity on this site.

Well thanks I apreciate that, but im no where near being as smart about cars as people on here. I can install stuff and modify it, but Im not good at telling specs and what parts are good, and actually naming off parts. But im working on making myself smarter.

 

And to seb..- Our cars are like really close in looking the same. You wings the same hieghth as mine and alot of stuff is the same.

lol dude is cool by me.

 

he didn't get butthurt when i instigated.

 

thats what I said.

 

looks like he passed the HF flame test - hes fireproof!

 

look into the Ameripol top instead of the one you have with the roof scoop on it. A glasstop would be sweet!

Well thanks, but I think its kindof stupid to get mad over the internet. Plus I respect other peoples opinions. If we had all the same opinions this would be a boring world to live on.

 

Is this glass top tinted or what, and how much does it run in cost.

 

and by the way, Right now I only have 35 dollors to my name. I had a $250 speeding ticket I had to pay for.
