Yes of course there are, which is why my comments were directed at the one guy...

Not sure if you've ever driven a Tesla M3 Performance, but they are incredibly docile compared to an F8x when being pushed to street limits. I have not had track time in them both to compare

You have no sense of context or a sense of humor. All bent out of shape for what? There is nothing on the road that touches the Model 3 Performance at it's price point. A Tesla makes more sense for my current commute so I bought one instead of the G80 M3. Calling people an idiot because you don't like Tesla's is also weak and childish. For the record, I have always loved M3's from the E30's to the current G80. The guy who tried to race me was really cool and we both gave each other a thumbs up. I was hoping he was a member of this forum but I knew that was a long shot. I'll post anywhere I want at anytime. If that makes you all ruffled then fantastic.

Funny. Tuning via software update is a real thing with these cars. Hopefully Musk will add another 5-10% output in the near future.

Dells are also very effective at tuning ICE cars like M3's don't you think? When the day comes that one can stand outside of their car and race another you will have made your point.

I am a hater of anything modern i admit so yes EV's are cancer for actual driving.

Sure they are fantastic appliances, but i could care less how fast they can go.

More importantly can they make noise? Can they slide? How fast can they go around a super technical circuit? Will little kids point and go omg that's so cool?

Let's face it if your kid is pointing and saying omg sick Tesla, Hes got bad taste and is objectively a nerd.

I test drove a model 3 performance and was actually a bit taken aback at how fast it accelerates, definitely much quicker than an F8X from 0-60.

Can't imagine what a model S plaid is like lol.

I really could care less about tracking my car but if you are into that then great. The fact that I no longer have to pay nearly $5/gal of dino juice is more important for me. I don't mind being called a nerd.

E85 burns faster. How much mileage do you get on 1/2 a tank vs premium?

I don't recall but I did the math. I'm still coming out ahead running on full E85 vs premium unleaded. I recall was pretty substantial as well - I think I'm benefiting around 20% in terms of overall fuel savings even with the reduced fuel economy.

Hate to be a grammar checker. But the expression is “ I couldn’t care less.” If you “could care less” then you care…but could could care less depending on whatever you care about.

Literally everything tries to race me now since being a little 'modified' looking. I had a C250 (lol) try to get me to go from a roll, and then tried to go from a dig? A 200hp 4-cyl? Why?

Also had a stock G35 pacing me and trying to get me to run. What's the deal here? It's always these 14-15s cars for some reason.

I spend $6 per day to charge from 54% to 90% after my daily commute. I used to spend over $400 per month with my Merc E350 which was a NA V6. I believe E85 burns faster than premium gas so how much does a full tank get you in mileage?

Sure. I guess I should have said "I have no interest in tracking my car...." Then I wouldn't have set off the grammar checkers. .

Now that E85 has become more expensive, it is essentially break even compared to running pump gas. When E85 was cheaper, i saved roughly 30% compared to running pump gas even though I had less MPG on ethanol.

But the fuel savings is really wiped out by more frequent oil changes since ethanol kills even the best motor oils rather quickly due to fuel dilution.

People have recommended using 5w-50 when running ethanol to combat the decrease in viscosity.

Recently have had a few 392 Scat Packs being instigators and harassing me on the highway.

Finally had a little room to play with one the other night. Sitting on basic stage 2 93 with the stock downpipes right now after I had to pass emissions the other day.

Waved him on to give him the hit, while I sat on a 4th gear rolling anti-lag and.. quickly walked on by through part of 4th. Had a solid couple cars within all of 30-40mph so he didn't shoot for a round two.

I got to line up with a new C8 a couple weeks back. Did a 55 roll and I stomped it pretty hard. A solid 3-4 cars by shifting to 5th. Dude was super cool, asked if "that thing has 700HP or something". Nope just a tune! Fun times.
