    Here are the specs:
    horsepower: 300@6000 rpm
    torque: 300 lb/ft@4000 rpm
    weight ~3250lbs (your Magnum weighs ~4100lbs)
    0-60mph; 4.7 sec
    1/4 mile ~13.0/1@99-102mph

    The center differential is adjustable too. I can set it on auto and let the computer distribute traction or I can adjust the torque split percentage between the front/rear axles from 50/50 to 35/65.

    As far as handling, it has so much grip, it's not even funny. Slow entry speed on curves but phenomenal exit speed. It will also handle on a wet/gravel/dirt road about as well as it will on dry tarmac.

    Sounds like a fun car.
    I'd love to race you!

    It's not so bad in Finland. Unless you got to or from the center at times when the freaks gather there.

    I thought in Finland they just carried their wives around? They don't need buses, anyway.

    they don't need them, but the silly principle of the social welfare state dictates that you must have efficient public transport for all.

    what can you do? Bomb the shit out of them if you love freedom.

    Lotus Elise

    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

    What I like about these cars:

    Both of these cars are inexpensive and cheap, but these cars have other things about them that make them interesting and different from your regular sports car.

    The Lotus Elise Exige here is a pure sports car. It's tiny, has a high-revving engine (and it's under 200 hp) and yet manages to do 0-60 in under 4 seconds. The car itself has a curb weight of a scant 2,015 lbs. Drivers say it's uncomfortable, loud and is nimble as hell. It drives like a street-legal go-kart, basically. The car gets 30 mpg on the highway too.

    The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X shown here has something like 300 hp, is pretty small in size, has sophisticated AWD, is a four-door sedan that can pack a family and beat virtually any car on the road in a drag race. Does 0-60 in about 4 seconds. It also handles extremely well and has tremendous grip because of its AWD system. Man, I'd like to have an Evolution.

    Finns appear retarded. We've established on another thread that this is of no consequence. So it's just an observation.

    it's weird to have a discussion broken up by car pics.

    Yes, that's a bit retarded too. Makes a nice change though, in a way, rather than just pages and pages and pages and of boring writing.

    Maybe. It's nippy though. You could get back from the shops in that 10 minutes before you left.
