    it's all getting automated. people are either stupid, lazy, or both. look at key fobs. hell, you don't even need to start your car anymore. a proximity sensor knows when you are close, unlocks the door and you just get in. you push start the car without even inserting the key. then you drive off.

    somewhere down the road the only "driving" will be on race tracks.

    Only if it's diamondplate.

    E, I already do my best to rev match in my civic. I want a 370z cause it's a better car, not because it will rev match for me. :p

    Exactly.

    '91 B18 swapped CRX. Fuck everything. Its a driver's car. Hell, mine has no heat, no A/C, no sunroof, no power anything, no interior except for 2 seats. .. Nothing more. And I love it.

    Nope, this is the B18.. Sold off the zc and have been tooling with the b18 for a while, it is currently a nightmare of a motor. All but one sensor is smashed. Everything on it was messed up, mis routed, wired wrong, etc.. I think they messed with it, tossed it in a car, couldn't get it running, and pulled it out. I ordered eleventy billion parts for it, should be up and running in a week or 2. That is when I'll find out It has spun a bearing or something.. Blar.

    Fuck used honda motors, unless you buy from someone you know isn't a dickbag. If I ever buy a motor for a swap, it's coming from hmotors. I don't care if there's one for $1000 cheaper locally, chances are there's gonna be $1000 worth of shit wrong with it.

    You don't need to double clutch if you've got enough nos in there to blow yourself apart. Period.

    Hmmmm....I've got ABS and power steering. I'd be out an S2k without the abs. everyone says it about the state they live in, but texas has some WAYYYYY fucked up drivers. and i love driving my car since it has PS. I don't know if even current s2k's have TCS.

    As for double clutching, i've never done it in the s2k. not even once. I rev match when i feel like having a bit of fun, and as far as i could tell calesta always rev matches on up shifts.
