Lots of people just don't know about Mini. Super fun little cars! I had a JCW (think Shelby but not quite as awesome) and modified the crap out of it. Sold it to a friend and raced him when I got the mustang. He stayed on my bumper to about 130 when we shut it down. I swear he's spent about the same in these last 2 years keeping it running than I have in car payments though haha!

Not a mini but...whole hell of a lot of fun. Although I was wrenching on it what seemed like every other week, lmao. She never actually broke down on me once though.

Chose auto as I wanted straight line fast. The A10 gearing keeps it in the power band well, holds up to quite a bit of abuse (1/4 mile type racing), can shift faster and more consistent than me, and if I want to choose gears I can. I understand the fun of a manual, but I also find the acceleration more fun when I stomp on the pedal and it just goes. I do like the A10 and how it drives, maybe I got a good one. Just my opinion and you get what you paid for it.

Oh I’m sure it’s super fun! It’s almost go kart status. Haha.

The person that said that to me is always crying if he doesn’t get all the attention.

And he is Mister Foreign... I refuse to drive anything American...

So hence the snarky response he got from me :crackup:

Driving into and around LA all day every day, you see some crazy shit.
I lived in Cali before and drove to LA to rescue a dog, traffic was insane but I had a Acura TL back then so wasn't that bad.

I’ve owned a manual on every sports car I’ve ever owned since ‘88. This is the first automatic I bought mostly because of how many great things I heard about the A10. I have not been disappointed and in the traffic in California it’s nice to have a transmission that holds the revs as long as it does with my tune. And then you could just get right back on it.

Yeah the autos are nice, I just went a different route so I can have some fun. Autos definitely pull quicker at a light than manual. My previous gt was an auto.

So will there be spectators at the upcoming Olympics?
People still care about the Olympics? I find the Marble League to be more entertaining and engaging.

after the recent disrespect for the flag at the podium I'll find lots of other things to watch.

Bob, this wasn’t meant to be a serious/political comment. But if you’re going to allow a one single person to prevent you from watching a worldwide sporting event maybe you should stick to transmissions.

You know what I find disrespectful? Truck flags. They don't follow proper etiquette for display.

NOW this thread will get locked :giggle:
