Virtual Pimp My Ride
We found a little page on the Sport Compact Car website that allows you to virtually pimp your ride, provided you own a Nissan 350Z, Mitsubishi Evo, Honda Civic Si, Mazda6, Acura RSX or the perennial tuner favorite, the, uh… Volvo S40. The Car Configurator allows you to choose wheels from five different manufacturers in three sizes, the suspension (as long as it's made by Tein), brakes (as long as they're the Wilwood Big Brake kit), and tires (as long as they're either Nitto's NeoGen or NT555). Okay, maybe it's not so much a Car Configurator as a way to see what your ride will look if you only buy products from Sport Compact Car's advertisers. When your ride is ready to descend from the virtual lift you can even view it from three different angles to see how silly it looks. Is it just us, or do the wheels on our ride not seem to line up very well with the hubs? That's gotta make for some highway ride.
