    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    i just found one of the largest 6 cylinder engines i have heard of, and it was made in 1948. it's a 589CI (that's 9.65 liters!) flat 6 designed for the 1948 tucker sedan. it wasnt used for lack of funds and development. it was meant to drive 2 torque converters in lieu of a trans. idle was supposed to be 100 rpm and cruse speed of 250-1200 rpm. i would hate to know what it'd cost to fuel that behemoth.


    interesting tidbit, i started out reading about the sturgis motorcycle rally on wiki and somehow got to looking at this and, even weirder, the Vanderbilt family...
    HELP! IM STUCK ON AN ESCALATOR!

    Yeah, not that you would want to drive that on the street, but it is indeed DOT approved... [X(]

    Yeah, those are basically slicks... (has 2 grooves, that's it..) (Kumho V710)

    Nice rims anyway. I have been wanting to get new rims for the Hyundai. 14" ones. For two reasons... to get rid of the steelies, and have more tire options lol. Not interested in those big "donk" rims. It's a hyundai, not a Caddy. I do like BBS rism, but I will never have the mind to fork out the money for those. I tried 14" honda rims, but the bolt pattern was off

    Yeah, bigger is not always better, yo!!

    Performance cars often time need larger rims because they need the clearance for the larger brakes.. it is out of necessity...

    A set of Brembos would be hot as hell on the Hyundai, but way too much stopping power for the 2400lb car. I would never need all the power to stop it lol. One of these days, I'll own a car with 4-wheel disc brakes adn some actual rims instead of steelies.

    Heck yes! I wonder if they make like, some cheap caliper covers that I can paint the Brembo logo and work on lol.

    2001 Hyundai Accent brake specs:
    Front: Brembo 6 piston drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic pads
    Rear: Duralast Gold drums and pads

    Only partial ricer. It would be the only thing on the car I am displaying that I actually don't have. I have the K&N sticker as well as the filter. Now if I had a Spoon Racing sticker and nothing Spoon related, I would then have to crash with myself in the car. You can't say Brembo caliper covers would not be cool!

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    I don't think I can find a Brembo caliper cover to fit my Brembo's.


    Could be some generic pad covers, or you can paint or powder coat your calipers instead of ricer Brembo ones when you don't have brembos. Plus the tiny calipers would be obvious that it's not Brembo so that would scream riceroni also.

    I don't think Brembo makes a caliper cover anyway.. it is all done aftermarket, no doubt.. ha..

    Would be funny if Brembo actually sells a cover.. ha!

    It is kind of funny that they have custom cover and the example they used was "Hennessey".. sort of want to see a real Hennessey run one of those covers.. !

    Maybe if the caliper covers are made of metal and you can let that act as heatsink.. that's performance enhancing right there...
