My AC pulley is shit. Can't afford to drop cash on a new compressor or clutch. Debating on whether to pick up a bypass pulley or if it's possible to go around it with a shorter belt... Little help?
Can the WP pulley be reversed? The only 2 other belt arrangements I can think of... A and B

Do suspension first
CAI's are fucking useless, get better plugs, injectors and a tune. If it's manual get a stage 2 clutch and short throw shifter. If you actually race it get better tires and lighter wheels.
What's your budget? If you have 3-5k get a big ass turbo.
CAI's are proven 15whp on the this platform, but agree with coil-overs and sway bars.
I do race it, had a couple track days this summer and it was a blast. The car was almost perfect minus the understeer in tight corners.
probably drives a 99 mustang lmao
What are /o/ thoughts about the Colt/Summit/Mirage, specially from 89 to 91.
There is one laying around in a pretty fair shape, it have manual everything and the only comfort is standard a/c, It's the base model 1.5l(12valves I think) and 4sp manual.
I'm tempted to getting and striping the shit out of it, put some bucket seats, a rollcage, racing steering wheel and harness and start tuning it to a better track day toy.
They are pretty uncommon around here, and I've seen some awd builds and 4g63 swaps. I can't find any info on their rear...

There is also the 92-96 generation available. In the Gti configuration (1.8l, 16v, 140hp 5sp manual) But none around my area.
Are non turbo imprezas fun ? there are plenty of 1st gens here for dirt cheap, all 2.0 4wd
rs25 dot com is the bible for these cars.
Get the manual one, it has true 50-50 power to the front and rear. Auto is slightly more fwd based, and waaay more boring than the manual one.
Try to get the 2.2L its the most bulletproof one of the bunch.
Also look out for rust in the bottom of the dogleg, where the rocker meets the quarter panel, shit gets packed in there and in the rubber vanity lip on the edge of the rear wells and it causes premature rust.
>put brand new front grille emblem on my 1971 C10 last month
>last night someone ripped it off of my truck and broke my grille doing so - egg carton style grille, it's plastic
>$300 in parts destroyed and insurance deductible is $500
What the fuck /o/. Is this a normal thing? I'm struggling to make ends meet so now I can't even afford to fix it. I'm really rustled right now.
What do ya think? 04 Used Ford Explorer with 112,000 for 4 grand. Just something I need to get around, haul geal. Also I make 35K an year. Am I do a good?
Hey /o/, first time posting here.
I wanted to know what you guys thought of a 2005 chevy blazer 4WD?
I just moved from California to Calgary, AB and I wanted to get a big SUV with 4WD to help deal with the winter.
I don't really want to spend all that much on one at the moment, maybe about $5000-$6000CAD give or take.
Also accepting suggestions, never really owned an SUV nor do I know what to look for although I do have plenty experience driving big trucks/vans in the past & I can also drive manual if it matters much.
Stop meming. SUVs are great to have in winter, especially if you ever have to park outside or start from a full stop at a light. Better 4wd than having to put blankets under your tires to get going on ice.
You dont need a big suv. However, you dont have to need something to own it. If you just want an suv, thats cool, but unless you want to pull shit or go four wheeling, a car would probably be capable of everything you need it to do.
But anyways. Suggestions. The s10 blazer is actually pretty small for an suv. It would get you a to b, but dont expect anything special from it stock. Take a look at the car chart in the sticky. Good suggestions there.
Has anyone ever beat a case
Not me. I'd recommend getting a lawyer. Ask the court house for an earlier court date. If denied argue that it was your right to be given a fair and speedy trial at the hands of your peers...If goven earlier date, you better go in there and take the punishments like a man. You fucked up.
i sort of beat a 25 over the limit charge (6 points on insurance and $500) by going to court. The judge knocked it down to 2 points and $150. I was 18, clean record and my mom went with me, so it was a sympathy thing, i think.
Never had one against me. At least for vehicles.
I did have one against me for assault back when I was like 16. Punched some cunt who called my mother a whore.
It was dropped immediately after the cops questioned me.
I'm looking to buy a 2013 WRX hatchback here soon; however, I want to know your opinions.
I like the idea of the hot hatch, functionality without forfeiting something that's fun. My budget is $20k, so keep that in mind when you are going to suggest a different car
There's one of these for sale near me. Looks to be near mint, has 232k miles (which really isn't much for the OM617). He's asking $4800
Is this too high a price? I already DD an '85 300D with the same engine, no major problems but it's in much rougher shape. I want to get this car as a nice "upgrade" to my current one.
When is the ZR1 coming?
Do any of you guys own a memey new car with collision avoidance? Does it work? Has it ever prevented you getting in an accident? I see so many ads where they manufacturers pass it off as a holy grail, like it's the next airbag, I think they put it in to inflate the price of shitboxes even more. I prefer the idiots in the ads pay attention to the fucking road, can't believe they show people driving so carelessly and pass it off ass normal behavior.
I'd consider it if I was looking for a brand new automatic car to daily drive. I'd probably get no use out of it but it'll help resale value a fair amount and if it prevents one fender bender, that'd be cool too. I never would be distracted enough to hit a fucking kid like some commercials like to show it preventing, and I learned how to properly drive in heavy higher speed city traffic after my first and only at fault fender bender.
I think it's nice (if it works), but i think it's really bad for millennial drivers my age, I drive an 04 accord my grandmother gave me because she's getting dementia, and that thing takes some concentration to drive, it's super rigid and vibrates down the road like a bitch, and I love it, but these damn kids can't depend on these systems when they're shitposting on the road.
How do I learn more "advanced" driving techniques?
I daily drive manual, but it's in a city with gridlock traffic and stop-and-go on the streets. I feel like I have no idea how to actually take corners quickly, etc. What is there to learn, and how do I do it?
Watch in car racing, read about racing, read about the physics of cars, read about car control.
Then go out at 3am and drive some twisty roads. If no twisty roads then just drive whatever you can
We post 4 songs that we have listened to today and others guess what we drive.
You now have an empty single car garage and $USD 2000 to spend on tools/equipment.
What do you get and why?
How screwed is my chinese scooter why is oil dripping from clutch area
Black and oily everywhere the black grit could be belt but it looks ok to me
Bridgestone has a stupid naming system. What's the differences between these tires? They are all in the Ultra/Max/Extreme summer categories (which are arbitrary and useless designations that blend together anyway)
So I've been looking through sites for an S15 but came across an S12 selling for £3,500 and have fallen in love.
They're extremely rare in Britbong land so i've never read much on them and don't know if there are any quirks to look out for or if 3.5k is a rip off. Engine has a few marks but the rest of the car looks decent and it's only 60k miles.
Is it a worthy motor or just a AE86 looking meme?
I owned one with a v6 and even it was slow as shit. not particularly fun to drive imo but it felt dank anyways regardless of driving character. and eh its not that it was piss bad it just didnt jive with me as well as some of the other sporty stuff ive driven. make sure yours was well taken care of, mine broke down a lot and i had to sell it after hardly putting any miles on it even though i hear theyre supposed to be decently reliable.
Fuck man this is why I love this board, always learning. Thanks man
i'm also guessing the fact you pick up a similar year/condition Honda for half the price confirms 3.4k is way too much
Today is the anniversary of the death of the Wankel engine, 4 years ago today June 22, 2012 at 4:30pm the Wankel engine assembly plant at Mazda Ujina #2 produced their very last Wankel engine and shut down, shortly there after it was dismantled to make way for a brand new engine assembly facility at Ujina #2 specifically designed to manufacture Mazda's successful new signature Skyactiv-G ® line of reciprocating Otto type engines
How much will this depreciate by January/February?
please recommend me a car that fits my progressive upper middle-class lifestyle.
Rules: No more than 30.000 dollar, my parents won't support me with more.
Additonal info: I'm a well educated handsome-in-an-average-kind-of-way college senior.
Recently ive noticed that this gen Mustang is starting to become more and more numerous in junkyards.
Theres actually more of these than Foxbodies now.
What other cars are we going to start seeing more and more of in junkyards in the next 5 years?
Might be a good time to make space for a future project.
>What other cars are we going to start seeing more and more of in junkyards in the next 5 years?
Solely owned by kids who don't know how to drive and end up crashing them trying to drift.
Whats the point of a RWD car that doesn't have an LSD?
So fags like you who can't keep a Mustang straight don't plow into people racing to the YMCA to blow dudes.
Also, they make annoying sounds that scare faggy people when they turn.
Anyone know anything about an aftermarket lumbar support for car seats?
Are there any that can be heated or cooled down?
My back is pretty fucked and i dont want to buy new seats.
Also feel free to post any aftermarket interior pieces to make a car more comfy in general.
keep an eye on a company called Tempronics, they are a start up that is really taking off, active cooling much better than the ventilated seats that are out now.
I mean he seems like a nice guy, like I would kick back and have a beer with him and talk about why Mustang drivers have such bad rep. But yeah, sometimes his jokes in his videos are generally stale at most. Half the time you can't even hear his commentary because the video's audio that he commentates over obscures his voice.
>Flywheel makes a lot of noise from time to time
>A new clutch kit was put in a few months ago after i broke apart a throwout bearing
>Flywheel was supposedly re-surfaced and a new clutch kit was put in.
>Car runs fine, but this fucking noise from the flywheel though
I am officially back in the game
