  4. Because they have two more cylinders then we do, that's why.

    And on another note, getting big wheels will hurt you unless you have a decent amount of hp (which without a power adder or stroker kit, we don't). The main purpose of wider wheels/tires is for traction. It's true that you will be able to launch harder with wider tires but you lose accelerating power due to the larger size of the wheels/tires. I think they call it rolling mass or something. I know several people who have gotten larger wheels and they all told me the change was noticeable.
  5. Im pretty sure that was a rhetorical question you answered there. And yes, its called rolling mass. You have to weigh the benefits of traction/vs rolling mass to know whether or not your getting more by each width of tire. Also rim size/weight makes a difference. Even if the tire/rim are the total height as before, the rim still will weigh more and create a larger rolling mass.
  6. rotational inertia :banghead:
  7. Same thing but u messed up the smiley :nonono:
  8. I have never heard it called "rolling mass" i have only heard it called rotational inertia. but as long as were all on the same page.... its good wit me!
  9. Exactly!
  10. yay! the 4.6l forum guys need to take a lesson from this! people can disagree w/o taking it to "lets step out side":banana:
  11. I dont u long as we both are talking about the same thing, it doesnt matter what i call it...(even if it may be right or wrong)
  12. hhmmm, all i was saying was that the 4.6l forums are cramped full of crapy people who turn every disagreement in to a pissin match, if you don't care then we can drop it at that, ok? sounds good to me!
  13. No we can't drop it! i was right damnit! lol. sorry i would have never said anything had u made the extra remark! lol...i need to find something else to do with my time...
