I just wanna say Tsuchiya's 86 would destroy 99% of any Zilvia member's cars. Within reason of course.

Road race cars are cars in which participate in road racing which makes it a race car. I don't give a fuck if you drive it to 7/11 or daily it, it's literally by definition a race car. So yes - you did call it a race car even if your microscopic brain capacity couldn't fathom you may or may not have call it that indirectly.
Have you heard of copy and paste? Even my microscopic brain could have figured that out lol.

and this is probably what you were referring to?

"My point was that you can totally have a fun and competitive road racing car and still drive it on the street."

you CAN (not mine) CAN/it's possible to have a fun and competitive road racing car that can be street driven.

..and I'll just leave this here, again. Skip down to TOURING CLASS and remember your yellow book from Hooked on Phonics. Sound it out and try and understand that there are classes to road racing.

https://www.scca.com/pages/on-track

But SCCA is gay or something, right? Ok here's another one:


Some of these cars are driven on the street. There are very competitive s14's, FR-Z's, 370z's, 350z's, GT-R's, etc. that are all street driven.

But I know you don't care about the rules..or any kind of rules that disprove your argument. Only the made up rules in your fantasy world where only one-seater fiberglass body over full tube chassis can participate in road racing.

Definitely looks like a ton of cars that go shredding on the street when they aren't on the track they were built for. Great example.

I will not talk any shit as I do not know the SD chapter. I race W2W with NASA and occasionally see SCCA guys. For the most part they seem cool. With that said I would like to think they are also talented as a SCCA racing license is valid to enter many other sanctions of racing.

  • Full interior
  • A/C & heat
  • Strong focus on handling and balance
  • Can have "fun" doing spirited street driving, track days, drifting and of course Touge Battles... lol

The above almost seems like a foreign concept to most S-Chassis these days.
Have you seen how this car was built? It has like $70,000+ worth of work in it. They basically took it down to the bare chassis, reinforced the entire thing, and put it back together with new everything.

Any s-chassis with coilovers, sway bars, and decently sticky tires will tear itself apart after a few years of being driven hard. These are wet-noodle chassis', they need help.

Agreed. Everyone is arguing semantics. Call your car whatever you want, just have fun driving it. Fuck.

The fact we even had that argument just goes to show how fucking stupid SCCA or whatever the fuck they call their swingers group. When they're done getting sweaty by driving their cars around, they slip out of their race suits into their birthday suits so they can yank and suck each other.

Can we talk about what type of meat people prefer in their burgers? Christ.

..because building tire smoke machines with Sailor Moon on the side and comparing ride heights is a much serious type of motorsport..
