Default HOW TO VOTE (ESPECIALLY SUBZERO)

Guys, now that the results are online, you should agree that we definitely have too many subzero cars (and it all started a couple of days ago)! Seriously, try to think about TG, how many subzero cars they have after a couple of seasons (or even three, can't remember)?

Of course it's up to personal preferences, but only a VERY limited amount of cars can be considered subzero and deserve to be there. I won't tell you the Miura deserves it , but well, a subzero car is something totally out of this world on every single aspect.
An F430 might be as cool as you want, but it's a car that every football player of this world bought or will buy. We aren't saying only rare supercars deserve to be there, but definitely we will need to pull several Jeremys to remove some of the cars and put them back in the "cool" section.
Please, try to be as conservative as possible when voting, and do not put "subzero" to every car you like

Thanks!

I agree that theres probably too many Sub-Zero rated cars. Theres probably only the TVR Sagaris which is in that catagory for me at the momment. Seriously if you lick that car, your tongue will get stuck to is.

My dumb voted SZ on the first cars cause my thought subzero is "just under zero" so it is between cool and uncool ops:

There isn't any middle ground on TG, so don't expect any here!

On a side-note... this guy seems a little trigger-happy with his sub-zeros

Im just thinking that if sub zero is for the most extreem examples then lets say that a 355 is cool but is a 308 uncool

Cool is as wide as you want... if a 355 is cool, a 308 can still fit in there too

The voting is fatally flawed anyway. Everyone is just voting on how good of a car it is. I mean not being a sports car or not costing 100K doesnt make something uncool.

I totally agree. For some people the graph represesnts not how ool the car is but by how fast it goes. Look at the sub zero section...we have basically all the supercars in there. Pagani Zonda, Enzo, Macca, Carrera GT, F50.

Try to think of a few cars that really deserve that spot and wait till it's time to vote for them.
