There are also people that make electric drag cars. And despite what you might think, they're fast. The reason is that gas cars have power curves. The torque and horsepower come in gradually, that's what a dyno curve is for anyone that doesn't know. But with electric cars, pressing the gas is like turning on a light switch. 100% power in an instant. So if you have a 500 hp electric car, you have 500 hp all the time, it never drops below that. This wreaks havoc on the driveshaft though, I saw on discovery channel that electric drag racers break them a lot since they can't handle such a sudden surge of power. They've started making them out of exotic materials so they won't break.

Acura RL...the new one...my fav car. Acura's flagship sedan...AWD. Seductive luxury at a fair price. I'm getting one this summer.

thought you were planning on something...4 cars is just too many...you need to keep them all "polished" and pay the taxes for them

I only have 2. That's all I can handle is 2. That's why I'm trading the Mustang on the Acura. I need a great family car and the Acura is a sedan. My kids have a hard time getting in and out of my Supra and my Mustang.

that's what i call i hard time in a fast car

my familly has a 2001 opel astra caravan...very large trunk...low consumption (around 2 litres/ 100 km) and is a very good sprinting car, though it's a diesel car, to get around this traffic here

and it's also cheap...around 6000 euros and it's one of the new generations of opels which mean the chasis is more resistant to rust than it's older brothers

I'm not the van type. I hasta be kewl,so I own sporty cars. Most Moms my age drive mini vans or SUVs. Driving sporty cars keeps me young.
