Oh, yeah, sure... but endless hours of discussion over 1/32nd of an inch of tire tuck or a quarter of a degree of camber? Not a bit. And why not a thread on Latin? Figure out what the Latin motto in my sig tag means for the key to understanding EVERYTHING on this forum.

calebstubstad i've been trying to figure it out the last month or so, i think the hard c sounds weird lol. but I also couldn't find a better alternative, til this.

bile0026 I think you meant soft c? Hard C makes the K sound.

Joeywhat Pronouncing it with a hard C sounds absurd IMO. Not only does it sound weird, but it's not proper English. It's like pronouncing "Focus" as "foh-sus".

bile0026 I think I'll stick with fokai since that's how everyone says it. Just seems like it would sound snooty to say fosci and then have to explain it to everyone lol
