Re: (dmc)

The engines displacement needs to be increased to help this car out.
It needs more torque to make it more 'practical' during city driving.
the high revving 1.8L engine might have worked on the light Celica, but not
in the Matrix. Specially since this car is meant to carry more than two occupants
(unlike the Celica, but more like the corolla). Why couldn't they have used the
2L from the RAV4? Which reminds me, the RAV4 is underpowered, it's another
car which I believe needs a help in torque (why not stuff the 2.4L from the Previa?)
Besides its high revving, torque-less monster
the car is great http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
