Really, guy?

As for the problems of the piston ringlands, if they've started cropping up again, then that's truly unfortunate.
the 11s dont have nearly that problem. there are guys with 450+whp and not having problems. our cars are better than that. but they cheaped out on intercoolers, the plastic endtanks break easily.

Plus with correct suspension upgrades it will also corner better.
this is correct
