you guys are just big instigators.. you just find any reasons to start with each other.. this should be a flaming forum not a car forum.. theres practicly not one thread without someone saying something bad.

yea, but cliffy get's confused alot, so that's a moot point.

honestly though, i said "why are we beating up on enthusiast?". you telling him that what he said isn't normal isn't "beating up" on him...

sorry i wasn't clear, but while yes, it's not like what he said was some alien tongue, i was more talking about the flame bait "you sound like a redneck" comment.

To enthusiast:
Just becuase your rings say something doesnt make it so...its like when nissan says to me "get a real car like an altima, not that POS neon you got" and we all laugh about it, becuase we know an altima isnt all that great from performance perspectives. You need to relax and listen to what people are telling you. Some of us here actually know what we are talking about.

I am going to slam her and maybe put a 5.0 in and supercharge it (maybe) and put tons of suspension mods on it so I CAN achieve it

Because the TT gets 19-20mpg city, and 28-29 highway...But a 1978 Porsche would be a helluva lot funner IMO lol

In my circle we just say MTX or ATX, its usually understood how many gears are in the car based on the type of vehicle and the year.

I actually know what they means...MTX = manual transaxle and ATX is automatic transaxle
He still hasnt proven for shit that he has a TT, so I will call BS on this one.
