So why hydraulic brakes instead of mechanical ones?
What kind of mechanism do you propose? The only one I can think of that works with suspension is a cable (like many parking brakes), cables stretch, hydraulics can transmit a lot of force very consistently, and are easy to maintain.
Village Idiot I thought you weren't a shitposter.
Anyway not entirely surprised, the FA20 was a new engine and needed some kinks worked out, as well as some bits on the rest of the car like the tail light seals.
Hey /o/ what are your thoughts on the Dodge Hellcat lineup? Are they worth?
just the engine itself 2bh
you could prob buy a restoration body like an old cuda and drop a hellcat engine for less than a 2015 model because of thhat dealership mark up
I think they will make interesting engine swaps when someone with more money than sense decides to get curious.
>mfw someday there will be a hellcat nd miata

>WASHINGTON — U.S. regulators are overhauling the process of assigning safety ratings to new vehicles by proposing requiring more crash-avoidance technologies to achieve a perfect score and adopting new crash-test dummies to assess performance.
>NHTSA on Tuesday proposed revising the current ratings system from a single overall score of 1 to 5 into a multifaceted scorecard that would include the score on crash-avoidance systems and a mark for pedestrian safety.
>The overhaul, which is now open to a public comment period, would go into effect for the 2019 model year barring bureaucratic delays or political hurdles. The changes include:
• A new rating to gauge a vehicle's use of nine advanced technologies such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. That's significant for the automotive industry because it could prod manufacturers to turn often-optional but highly profitable safety systems into standard technology. It could also increase the average price tag of a new vehicle.
• New advanced test dummies with improved sensors to better predict injuries.
• A new frontal oblique crash test to address what NHTSA described as a type of angled crash "that continues to result in deaths and serious injuries despite seat-belt use, air bags and crash-worthy structures of late-model vehicles."
>Currently, NHTSA ranks cars simply based on crash-worthiness. Five stars is a perfect rating. The new system will retain an overall score, based on three sub-ratings: pedestrian safety, crash worthiness and crash-avoidance systems.
>Regulators have not yet determined how much weight they will assign each category when determining the overall score. One thing they've settled on is allowing half-star ratings.
Looks like auto makers are going to have to find new ways to shill higher trims soon.
Also I bet Volvo is pretty happy right now.
Recently, when I start my car, generally when it's kinda cold outside, it does this (what's in the webm)
Revs drop super low, it makes this awful noise, and when I rev it, it drops to near 0 before slowly and really unresponsively climbing back up to 1k.
Is this just cause of the cold? Is there any way to remedy this? Could it be anything else? Any help is appreciated, thank you
webm originally has sound but can't post in /o/
>Hey dude! Nice WAT sticker!
/o/, just how does one go about negotiating over a new car? I will gladly admit that at no point in my life have I had to negotiate beyond merely asking for a toy in return for some chores that I already did. I guess it's just strange for me to imagine saying fuck you LPG, knock off two thousand.
Basically, I guess what I want to know is
>Are all cars open to negotiating in a general view, not counting dumbass instances like buying the last Evo ever or some shit
>How much is it acceptable to ask off
>How do you know how much to ask off
>How far will agression get you
>What vehicle types are less negotiable (Hotcake mid trim sedan versus barebone single cab truck versus mid-size RWD SUV)
>Will extended warranty be worth it
tl;dr How to not sperg out at the dealer
never extended warranty. 100% scam.
you can haggle anything. Generally, the longer a car has been sitting on the lot, the more money off the dealer will be willing to give. Generally they will NEVER take a loss though. It does happen sometimes, but it's rare.
I went and looked at a truck. They were asking $28,000 for it. I left with the truck and paid $18,000.
Aggression won't get you far. What will get you far is acting/threatening/etc to take your money to another dealership. They want your money until they realize you are an incompetent moron...

Hey, that's one way to do it. Let me see if I still have my tl:dr haggling guide around OP
>I'm shit when it comes to reading people and emotions.
You'll be fine. negotiation is business. You don't need to read someone to BUY a car.
>that guy with a lifted bro truck he uses only for commuting back and forth to work
That's what a brotruck is, any actual offroad truck doesn't look like a brotruck, whether it's for mud or rock crawling or blasting around in the desert.
>that guy who straightpipes his shitbox DD in high school
Gets blow by when ran hard for long periods but still doesn't smoke out of the exhaust. Only component replaced so far is timing chain.

I would rather have a drivers car, not a numbers car.
