Yeah, for future reference if you view the bottom left corner of this screen, it shows you what your posting rights are and if IMG code and HTML is turned on or off. This applies on any vBulletin message board by the way

Peak horsepower numbers means nothing. I bet the difference is quite higher if you compare the entire powerband.

When you get nostalgic and wish you still had the kat, just head out for a ride on the Daytona and you'll forget that crap.
Of course, you should have bought a Honda!!! :banana
