I know alot of people on the forum are v8 fans but i also have seen a large number of 4 fans also.
i really think the rotory scene in australia is awsome
the 4 scene has been let down by the 'Rice' factor, which is anly a small part of the 4 scene, imports are becomin more & more popular 2
Can't stand scroataries, possibly stems back to the days when I had an XWGT and couldn't drive past Auburn without dozens of them swooping on me demanding a drag.
Forever going on about 'ancient pushrod technology' yada yada yada. A my technology is better than your dinosaur technology attitude. Could never beat my dinosaur pushrod though!
I have two mates at work that own an RX3 each and they do put out impressive numbers, REAL impressive, would slay my 8 now... but they have also inherited the 'ancient pushrod technology' attitude of their forefathers.
The 4cyl scene.. seems to be the same as the scroats once were, an attitude against V8's. Regularly have 4cyl cars pull up to me at the lights thinking they have to prove something to me, then abuse me at the next set when I don't bother to run them.
Likely I only see the fringe who are small dogs with a big dog attitude, but seeing a 4cyl with whacky body kits, generating more exhaust noise than engine power and pumping out doof doof music that can be heard within a 3 suburb radius only makes me shake my head.
<insert more generalisations I've missed here....> ;P
