I've seen plenty of turbo cars and etc. throw flames, but the F430 from MV was a pretty short constant flow of blue flame.. pretty cool looking. Not a flamethrower coming out the back.

Oh, I'm not questioning it, just a blanket statement that it's not the same backfire as from turbo cars etc. that some people were eluding to. I might youtube that just to see more..

I've seen an S2K doing it. I was following learnerspermit down the dragon a couple of years ago and he was still struggling with tuning after installing his ITB's. He was poppin' and shootin' flame as he went. Stunk too but I think the lack of cat and the state of tune had something to do with that. I think it didn't like the change in altitude from Paducah. Nice car, though. Somebody needs to buy it.

Cut the cat off of any car and it'll shoot flame if you drive it hard enough. Stock RX-8 all shoot flames. Good trick to scare the ricers.

Yeah he left it with me and my room mate one weekend and let us take it out while he was gone, it was spitting some flames when I was driving it too.
