He's a 2m hairy biker nicknamed Wookie. Do you fancy telling him yourself?

If you can do what the urban dictionary defines as wibbling with your hairy biker friend... uh... good for both of you...?

Although I doubt he'd tell his biker friends about it.

I usually take my definitions from the OED.

The urban definition sounds like more fun though.

Autosport has today explained a longtail version of a racecar as a car having "a longer tail, which extends to the back of the car"

This is opposed to the shorttail, where the tail end of the car is not equal to the back of the car.

Probably a stupid question. How many of the more modern games can be bought as hard copy?

I'm old and grumpy. I don't trust download only purchases.

Must confess, I don't really know. I did see a copy of PCars the other day on a rack in a local shop, but I cannot promise it wasn't a ticket to download it?

LOL. Well the actual question is, which of the new games do you think
is worth the disk that it is put on...

...and would you want it?

Welcome back.

The forum seems to be ticking along nicely, fewer active members daily but better content. I prefer quality over quantity anyway. I have less to do as a mod.

Nope, by Yamaha. It has variable valve timing (hauls a$$ from 4000 rpm up to 7000).
Also has 4 valves per cilinder, single-coil per cilinder, variable-air-inlet-length,
sequential iunjection and the whole shazaaammmm. After chipz, 270HP N/A.

I'm gonna stick one of those in the Capri and if that is not deadly I'm boosting it too.

Well according to the manual it does also change the lift, so it is VTEC.
It really kicks in too, upto 3000 rpm it is quite docile and torquey,
after that it is like indeed 'VTEC kicked in yoooo'.

A bit nuts in a car like that but I'm not complaining.

Actually the block is sourced from Ford... but don't tell the Jaguar fans that.
And even the 4.0 and 4.2 V8 have the system.
Except for the ones that have the supercharger, they have no use for it.
This engine

...and it even has good fuel economy. Sweet engine, you donot hear it at all at 100mph...

The difference is the valve lift, or am I wrong?

EDIT: I think you're correct Mally. Something is kicking in but it's not VTEC.

VVT uses a variable cam sproket to change the advance or retard on the cam usually inlet side only and varies throughout the rev range, pretty much what i have on my altezza only the 3sge devolpped by yammaha has it on exhaust side aswell.

Vtec uses a 3rd cam profile to change advance/retard + Lift. Vtec is a mecanical change in lift and timing. then on the more recent engines IE K20 F20C etc they mixed both so you got the electronic variable timing plus the mecanical side too so basicly you cant do much more than that.


If i recal the only company that has somthing similar is Bmw on one of their engines where they use solenoids to open the valves insted of a good old fashioned cam.

Which one can give me ~150 BHP and would be most reliable.
Or easiest/cheapest to purchase.

Depends on what it is in/on. On a motorbike, should be plenty.
Probably faster 0-60 than my Jag.

70HP would be most hilarious in my Fiat 500...

from a honda civic MB6
and yes all B series engines pretty much share the same block and mounts.
I would recomend an S80 type Gearbox with LSD over the Y21 that is standard on the MB6
either that or get a B16A2 from an EG6 or EK4 civic.
Best b Series engine is the Integra type R engine though, 195 bhp from a 1.8, engine code B18C6 or B18C

Agreed but those Integra R blocks are either madly expensive or shot.
Or sometimes both of the above.

Remember it is a Mini. It weighs 600 kg.
150HP will be totally insane. I had 130HP at the max,
and the thing was sort of eating Porkers.

With 150 HP, it will eat Jags that have 500 HP....
