What a Rip-off

http://www.hpamotorsports.com/r32.htm




Would you pay 30 grand for this car? If you could do the work yourself, sounds like a rip-off to me. 20 thousand for a twin turbo setup and 2,500 for the labor. Even if it was 200 dollars and hour, that still comes out to 12 and a half hours. Oh yeah, and that's for the stage 1 setup.

I'm sure it's the best readily available price-wise tuner car, but doesn't it sound like a 10,000,000,000% markup monopoly?

interesting..i've heard r32 were fast but thats pretty cool. i dunno bout the 30 grand price tag though. 1 question: in the video on the site for the 0-60 it almost appeared like the r32 was rws cuz there was no wheel hop. how do u reduce wheel hop?

Electronic traction control, using the clutch as a limited slip, limited slips, etc. etc.
