Default 400+, 500+, 600+ etc and 10 sec, 9 sec, 8 sec Username badges?

Thought it would be a neat thing to add to the forum.

I want to brag without having to brag you know. It's exhausting all day having to run around and tell everyone how fast my car has been. Takes up a bunch of my time

Just a thought is all lol

C'mon, we all know that LS Volvos aren't fast.

I know, that's why we need the badges. How will anyone know otherwise?!

You're right. Things have come a long way with the redblocks though and there are people running more than 400hp. It'd be cool if the badges went up far enough to cover both mediocre(600-700) LS swaps and extreme(500-600) redblock cars. Currently I think the highest is 300+ club lol

That's why I was gonna throw out the ET badges too. My car has never been on a dyno but it's been 9's.

Don't think I can't make less than 100 hp with a turbo.

Now that sounds like a challenge.

My VW wagon is 90hp with a turbo.

But it gets almost 50 mpg, so it's got different tricks.

Going 16V turbo took 3 or 4 months, going LS turbo took 2 long afternoons. Easier than putting another damn HG on the 16V, BY FAR!
