Youtube didn't work, so here's one from my google video account. She's just playing around a bit. I love how the wheel winds up rolling so that the -R- on the center cap is exactly vertical. I had no idea, I swear.



Also, I'm not trying to be 'ghetto' or 'gangsta,' I just don't like tight jeans because I have a 5'11", 210lb build, and happened to be wearing my Burress jersey.

lol, I think you meant horizontal. Funny how the Series I's always sound different. Your car doesn't make near the noise out the back mine does when I rev it. Not to thread jack, but here is the link to compare.

No problem. AA told me that the supercharger I have on the '95 spins a lot faster than the one's on the '96-'99, so it sounds like a whipple and is a lot louder. I love how the '95 is an oddball.

I guess it's also perfectly horizontal, but I mean it's rightside-up when I say it's vertical.

Yeah, it is odd how they chose to put the Series I's on them instead of just offering the first year with no S/C which is what most companies would probably do. I guess they thought they'd use the Series I longer than they did.

Oh, no. I would never rev it cold, it would stall out if I did that. I just came back from driving mom to the supermarket, around town, and back, and she had left to go pick up my sister, so I threw this video together. Also, if it were cold, you'd hear a lot of backfiring and popping from the back.

I park my car on the side of the house on a little extension of the driveway, so when there's a video of my car starting anywhere else in the driveway, assume it's been nicely warmed up.

It was also 53* today, as it will be tomorrow, then it's back to low 40's. I drove with the windows down all day to celebrate. Can't wait for it to be warm enough to open up the sunroof for the first time!






By the way, that wasn't high revving. Just up to about 4,000rpm. The SI S/C at 4,000 sounds like the SII S/C at higher rpm because of the different blower, so it goes much higher than that.

mine hits the rev limiter at 4,000 rpms when in park

Yup. I don't rev it in neutral, only in park. My rev limiter is at 3,500, but sometimes lets it creep up a bit higher before cutting the gas if I hit the gas enough. Not flooring the pedal, that'd stall the engine.

When I saw your movie, I had to take the camera outside and make my own. The red light on the exhaust plumes looks like it's straight out of a Scorsese film. Watch at 27 sec for the cat crossing the road - right before I launch the demon-possessed Riv.

Go on now girl, fetch the stick... Fetch the stick...
