as long as we are speculating, what do you think the options are going to be on initial release, and what do you expect the price for these options will be?
You may not be too far off in price. Mazda offers thier hardtop for $1500 unpainted. Never understood why they didn't just offer the top painted white. White goes with every color, and those that want body color can easily paint it over. It was probably just as hard to put the primer on as it would be to paint it white. Many people would probably be just fine with a white top, but their way makes everyone go to the painters.DreamerDave said:Maybe the long delay in showing it with the top up is that their working on the details of an optional removable hard top for less than $1500? Yeah, I know, dream on... :cool
The options I need for sure arecdb said:there's the difference between asking a question and finding the answers- nice work brentil!
which options would you choose given the list of probable options you worked up?
LSD stands for Limited Slip Differential.GreatWhiteNorth said:Why would I want an LSD on a car with a five speed tranny?
I thought an LSD was for an automatic tranny to prevent the torque converter from shifting in and out of the highest gear @ cruising speed.
Is this incorrect, or is there another advantage to a LSD?
A good traction control system or a torsen type LSD is ideal for snow and ice. Depending on the situation, the clutch-type could be a good thing or a bad thing. You're less likely to get stuck with a clutch type or even posi-trac, when compared to an open differential. But you're more likely to have problems turning with either since your rear wheels will be trying to push you straight while your fronts are fighting to turn the car.DreamerDave said:GreatWhiteNorth, most of us Yanks down here wouldn't use a LSD near as much as you. We just want it so we can go faster without spinning the tires on warm, dry pavement. I'd think you actually could use it more than us in all the snow and ice of the Great White North. But, as my driving in frozen conditions is very limited, it seems like I heard that a LSD was a disadvantage on frozen roads. Something about having both rear wheels spinning instead of one being more likely to cause drifting. Any of you know if this rumor's true?
