NOTHING beats my baby. I'm not even kidding either. I won't let my daddy buy me a new one.

what mods?

A 5.0 with bolt-ons isn't fast. I beat 5.0s with bolt-ons and mine is stock.

wasn't there a episode where the inertal damers malfunctioned and the crew slatted against the hull when then went to warp?

The warp engine is an Alcubierre drive. Spacetime is warped in the front and back of the ship, allowing it to basically "ride" a subspace wave at superlight speeds without experiencing the time dilation of superlight travel. Inertia dampeners on the ships prevent the crew from getting liquefied through the acceleration. WIthout the dampeners, ships can't warp. Period.

BTW Alcubierre is a real thing. Wikipedia it.

Thats because exhaust, and fuel intake need to be upgraded along side headers...otherwise your creating a bottleneck in pressure...and killing performance. With upgrading HP with bolt ons..you gotta consider several other things, vehicle wieght, gear shifting, tire spin, wind resistence etc...

Prelude has:

-weight reduction (many parts upgraded to the light wieght performance version. didn't upgrade hood to Carbon fibre yet though, cause i want it to look stock)
-larger cylinders, to increase fuel injection and combustion. Preludes run 2.2 stock, mine is 3liter
-upgraded fuel injectors
-cold air intake (with forced air intake)
-headers (ceramic)
-4-2-1 exhaust
-upgraded CPU
-upgraded the entire transmission
-performance suspension
-low profile racing tires
-turbo'd
-strut bar
-and a bunch of other things i'm sure i'm forgetting off the top of my head....

she runs about 300hp, but has a LOT faster accelleration then most stock, or racing cars i go up against. Plus its got AMAZING handling...

I do street race with her, so i'm not just talking out my ass lmao
