TCS is just sad. It is what it is
If Trump wins, the cucks in the EPA stay under control and I get to keep on hot rodding. If your cuck Biden wins, well goodbye V-8's and performance aftermarket, the rule the EPA tried to sneak through is still waiting.

Never said I was a Biden fan, but can’t vote for this dumbshit self-centered moron with a pea brain. As far as hot rodding I can keep the GT350 running for long enough to buy the 1400 HP Mach E. It is what it is.

Yeah, cos the market won’t ever adapt to new technologies.
That’s why you see so many shops selling upgrades for the cart you sit in whilst being dragged around by a horse.
Can you imagine what the world would even look like right now if ultra-conservatives had stopped progress at every single turn?
You’re more than welcome to return to the Stone Age, but please don’t try and tell us that this moment in time is the absolute pinnacle of what humans can possibly achieve.

Bucky, running your mouth again, the EPA rule would have put EVERY manufacturer of any part used that would possibly affect emissions of any car produced regulated by the EPA for ANY REASON INCLUDING RACING out of business. Shops can't sell you a part that doesn't exist because THEY AREN"T FUCKING IN BUSINESS ANYMORE! You may ask yourself, would the greenies really shut down the entire multi-billion dollar aftermarket parts industry?????? Does Green New Deal ring a bell?

So you better have money to buy the horsepower you like in factory new condition because the only thing you will be installing is different wheels.

So just a driver, not a hot rodder.

That ain’t happening and you know it, so stop with the alarmist rant.

I assume “running your mouth” is a synonym for “presenting an argument that uses historical evidence to provoke thought”. Thanks. I’ll keep doing it whenever you need it.
The point I was making (that you appear to have entirely missed) was that when these electric cars become the norm, instead of buying headers, you’ll be buying a more efficient battery or a more powerful motor or motors to drive it etc etc.
Your speed shop will adapt or go extinct.
Are you crying tears for all the jobs and trades that have dwindled into obscurity as a result of progress?
How many blacksmiths do you know?
Candlemakers?
Milkmen?
Robots were going to put us all out of jobs too but somehow an entire industry sprung up around them, everything from programming to R&D to simple servicing.
100 years ago nobody was employed in IT.
Maybe think about it a little bit before clinging to the past with a sense of nostalgia.
Personally, I’ll miss the sound of a V8 but the appeal of a completely abundant and linear torque curve, coupled with a perfectly linear throttle and a driveline that can produce all kinds of interesting and complex arrangements is kind of appealing as a driver and modder.
Imagine not needing a differential anymore because you can drive the outside wheels at a different speed to the inside wheels...or being able to make the wheels counter-rotate for some truly interesting drifting/burnout fun...or being able to relocate the batteries to alter the weight distribution...
Imagine being able to achieve ground clearance in a 4wd that was previously unthinkable...or not needing a snorkel for water-crossings cos you no longer need oxygen to feed it...no fan-belt to remove or any of those other things that currently place limitations on use.

Yeah, it all sounds absolutely horrific in the long run.

Now, if you could tell me more about “the EPA rule” that will seek to prevent people from racing these electric vehicles, I’d really like to see the proposal. Again, historically speaking, racing has been precisely what has driven most of the increases in efficiency and technology that we see in our cars today, so I think it’s somewhat unlikely that they’d seek to prevent that from taking place, but I’m not privy to the specifics of what you’re referring to. So please, link me to the document.

so having your government kill 156k (and rising fast) of its own people is ok as long as it allows modifications to your car? That being said, unless the US changes it's health policies it wont need the EPA to reduce emissions because most of the emissions will be coming from the corpses from this current outbreak who lets be honest can't help but decompose and emit.

It already happened once and was only barely reversed. If Biden wins and the D's take the house and senate, hope people have an AEM or other engine computer.

Yeah, I'm going to trust corporations (cough Volkswagon) to do the right thing, rather than an agency that has hundreds of professionals in their field with hundreds of years of experience. I'll give up some of my toys for brand new technologies that aren't out to destroy our planet for short term growth. Because in the long term I'd rather have future generations be able to live in a better environment than I did.

Do I need to start providing charts on how our land, water, and air are dramatically cleaner now than when compared to the pre-EPA ear? Just ask yourself, when was the last time the Cuyahoga River caught fire.

Seriously, it's like these guys have never taken a history or science class. They seriously believe it is the EPA who is out to stop polluting corporations from saving the earth once and for all, lmao.
