I believe that Yamaha helped designed the Zetec engine.

I learn new stuff every day. There is no way anyone can know everything. There are hundreds of older car companies I'm still learning about, and then there's all the keeping up on new stuff.

Funny thing is how many people think I think I know it all, when that couldn't be further from the truth. I just make sure that what I do know, is solidly supported by evidence.

Well it seems you have an answer to almost every question on this forum. I hope I know as much as you someday.

The differences between a base Probe and a GT, for one.

That is true. I have respect for the SHO Taurus. Those are pretty good cars. (I havent driven one in real life, but in Gran Turismo 4 I bought one, great car. Also, I believe that you in fact lectured me on that car before. )

Most retarded statement ive ever heard

Cars dont break down in GT4, they dont have any of the problems a real life car would. Did the game let you feel how comfortable the ride was? How about how the interior looked? How about the real life colors?

No, the discussion was between calling a car an "utter pile of shit" vs merely a lesser performing version of the same car."

Dumbass. But see that's the problem it's black or white to you and a few others: "if it isn't perfect, it's utter crap." THAT'S what the conversation was about. And you would have understood that if you weren't such a f*cking moron.

Get a clue, idiot.

honestly? I would take a Taurus SHO over an Accord any day. but only the newer SHO, with the V8. My dad had an older SHO and he had lots of problems with the transmission - he calls it a beautiful engine mated to a crappy transmission.

Comfort of the ride: suspension or interior seating comfort (Yes on suspension)
Interior: not in the game, and I dont give a shit
Real Colors: the game uses real colors from the cars

I know it isnt the same as a real life drive etc, but I was simply stating that of all the Tauri, the SHOs are the better of the breed.
