I see people use the term "Daily Driver". WHat do you mean? When do you consider the car to be "Race"? I am rebuilding, and going for 400rwhp, but I drive the car a couple times a week and twice a month at the track, 1/4 and 1/8. Of course I am thinking about 40 over pistons, I would like to go 25 or 30 over if I can find them in the odd size. The machinist said I can probabley get off sizes, but I have to wait for the pistons.

if you rely on the car for your transportation needs, it is your daily driver. if you take it out somewhat regularly, it's a weekend/good weather car. if you use it solely for racing purposes, then it's a race car.

If this is true the why do people use this term "If it is going to be a daily driver"? I was thinking that they are referring to a power rating.

because the more power you have, the more potential problems you will encounter. when its a daily driver, some people dont want to push too much power because they dont want to encounter those potential problems due to the fact that they want their car to be running 100% of the time.

exactly. You will soon realize if not already. More shit you do to your everyday car, more chances there are for it to break. Start adding more power and that adds more stress on things. I dont think I would ever mod a DD anymore after having something for once I never touched. I have a vehicle that I finally dont have to worry about at all. lol

Well, some things for a dd are ok, but I guess it seems that way for me cuz I'm NA. Intake and exhaust to help the engine breathe, small little tweaks to keep under the hood heat down. Maintenence is #1 for me since my supra is a daily driver.

Don't forget that modding can also relieve engine stress and get better gas mileage. It's when u jack up the boost and drive it hard that starts to decrease the life of the engine. It all depends on the engine though also... :stickpoke

I think when people say its there DD, they mean its there only car. I drive my supra almost every day, but I always have a second car as my beater. Also, I would never race my car at the track if I did'nt have a second car. Its just too risky with all the pounding on the car, especially when you start having lots of HP and use dragradials.
