No hate going on and yes, buy the best you can afford. However, my point, and which you guys are missing, is that without you being that good, is that every little bit of performance on a part is purely academic or hypothetical if you cannot realize that performance.
That is, I can argue all day long about buying a tuned 1911 for $10k because it theoretically can shoot better than a $500 Glock. But can I shoot that well? Nope.
But if I want it because I want it and it is what I can afford, then nothing wrong with that too. But to nitpick and denigrate other things which are not super tuned to the top level because of something that is not going to be realized, and say that is why you bought it, is what sounds silly.
So... yeah, I am buying that super tuned R&D wing with a few less drag points for more downforce points over the cheaper one that is not tuned so well or drags more for the given downforce... okay... that's great... what difference does it make in your driving? None, but it makes me feel better and I can benchrace that much faster... okay... thanks.
completely agree with you
but also very subjective to those that may think they "need" it
coming from tracking miata and e46 m3, im relatively new to MR plateform but indeed no newcomer in terms of tracking
id like to add for myself (unsure about others here) having going through cars and wasting lots of time and money, ive finally landed on the exige as my track / weekend car
this time around, im pretty satisfied with what im doing to my car as to the past
more footwork (nitron doubles, canards, custom splitter, diffuser) before power!
but after doing research and needing to balance the car in terms of the added aero i needed the wing to balance out the front splitter + canards
keyword for me here is balance
others may like to modify power first before anything, but what track time + time + wasted money taught me my priority goes to tires, brakes, suspension, then aero. i can worry about power later
pretty damn excited for next track season as I never had aero on a car before, so i cant wait for the end result
