I dunno, there comes a point when more power actually decreases the driving experience. Take a look at the ultra limited production Shelby Cobra Super Snake with 750hp from the factory. Because that thing can't hook up, it is barely faster than the 540hp Shelby Cobra GT500. I believe C&D tested it a few months ago and said that going WOT would do nothing but spin tires until you get to 4th gear. That is pretty much useless power to me as it is also dangerous.

I suppose if you can afford that ultra limited production Shelby Cobra SS(didn't they run for nearly $90k?), you can afford to put a new set of rear tires on every 1000 miles or so. I like power, but I also like that power being translated into foward motion and not just smoke. Can you just imagine having a 750hp Mustang and losing a street race to a fart muffler ricer because you couldn't hook up from a dig?

nobody races from a dig these days.

its all about that 60-130 times.

Fastest right now is the UG TT Lambo which does it in 3.5 seconds

Those aren't really my style, but I am looking to change the wheels eventually. Probally going to start with a mild drop (about 1" on Eibach springs) and then go with some Volk TE37s or Advan RS.

Volks:



Advan:

I'm definitely leaning towards the Advans at this point. I think I prefer the look and they would be about $1k cheaper. The only problem is finding a set in the correct offset for an S2K.

Yeah, this car is tuned to perfection. 4 banger naturally aspirated putting out that much power is quiet amazing. I have part of an S2000 in my car. I put in S2000 seats into my 1974 Datsun Z. Looks very cool.
