Mk2 will always be sexier.

The Mk1 and 2 are both beautiful cars, the Mk3 is shitbag ugly.
Besides, isn't the MK2 the fastest?


And if I were to get a 944, it would be an N/A as it's better to insure and a decent Turbo is litterally almost as expensve as a 968.

 

no, the mk3 is by far the fastest, and the car with the highest potential.

everyone likes the mk2 becuase the turbo had the magic 200 hp ... not realising the mk2 is a fat pig.


The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

What the fuck happened while I was gone?  :blink: 

Anyways, I got an exhaust leak on the Audi, didn't use exhaust paste when putting on the aftermnarket exhaust.
Guess I'll have to take it off again and redo it.

The MK3 has all of the wrong lines and proportions - The design cues are all wrong. The mk2 was a much better looking vehicle for it's time, and actually became a cult classic in a sense, nobody I know really gives a shit about the mk3 for that reason. It is simply just not very good looking to go along with how a sports car should drive and feel. Nobody goes "wow" a third gen Mr2.... lol

Stock for stock, the mk2 was much better.

9468023773_2f76557599_o_zpsa9234c31.jpg

 

 

for actual driving, the mk3 is by far the best. the mk1 is next, and the mk2 mr2s are the worst. mk2s are for JDM bros to ruin.

I am the very definition of German bias, and I still love the mk2 Mr2. Poor mans Japanese Ferrari of the day. Like I said, nobody cares about the third gen, looks matter, or we wouldn't have design philosophy of what makes a good sports car being carried over today. Reality is reality.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

I'm sure you could actually use the bed of that. You probably wouldn't be able to put like a ton of bricks but its still useable. Or you could put air shocks in the back and put as much weight as you like.

They handle better than most other cars when driven by the right driver. But if you lose control of a Porsche, you're gonna have a really bad time, especially when driving fast on public roads and you hit a pole.

On a side note... theres this kid I go to school with who used to own an audi  a4. He literally went through 2 engines and 2 trannys before he got rid of it. The kid would push the thing so hard in 1st and 2nd.

As a person who has tried both and someone who personally know people who have done a lot of both.
AWD is much faster and much, much more controlable.

faster due to added control? A awd system adds weight but is worth it especialy driving up this for work
