How do I drive like Dagumi Tofuboy?
Buy a 2016 JDM MX-5 with i-DM. It tells you when you drive like shit from excessive steering or throttle inputs without splashing freezing water all over your dick. You know the saying: smooth is fast and sideways is smooth. Or, you know, something like that.
Why is it that transmissions do not need to have their own dedicated cooling system? They get hot too, don't they?
race cars and some extremely high performance street cars have transmission coolers. they're not usually necessary because no combustion is taking place in the transmission obviously. friction is pretty much the only major source of heat. that and heat transferred from the engine.
Why does driving late at night help me feel like I'm something?
(Also, nighttime pics thread)
Happy Pearl Harbour
Can we get a Mercedes appreciation thread going?
New Mercs are ugly, because some idiot thought that swapping front from commercial van will be a good idea for a luxury brand.
what a suprise. this happens every fucking time someone starts a thread about something that is not:
have a C111
What car is this?
Has it ever crossed your mind to have an intimate relationship with your car?
How come Initial D doesn't have a grind pillow? Or do they?
I own a ford fiesta (basic 1.6L one).
Long story short: I shifted to 1st going 40mph like an idiot.
If you have to askwhy, it's because I'm an idiot. I honestly don't know what happened.
The car seems fine, and from what I have read, if the car didn't catch smoke or instantly blew something, then nothing happened. I should just be careful not to do it again.
Am I in the clear /o/? I'll wade through the shitposting and trolling, I just hope one of you can give me a straight (and hopefully positive) answer.
I just want to either put my mind at ease or act immediately if something needs to be addressed.
for the record. The car runs fine. The clutch and shifter work perfectly. It idles fine and the tranny makes no abnormal noise. Car is as fine as it was before I fucked up.
but would it actually do that? I read that if I was going at highway speeds (60-70). The rev limiter would surpass the redline (~7000) and pop.. so did I narrowly miss snap city?
Is Ferd the best Amerifat automaker of the 21st century?
Are 1967-1972 Chebby trucks quite expensive? There's a few for sale in my area and all of them are around 15-20k.
Let's hear it /o/
So I want a Mustang.
Without actually owning a Mustang, because I need to cover up my faggotness.
Are the Lincoln Mark Coupes any good? Panthers are an option but I'm striving for 2 door.
If I find a Mercury Capri, should I dump for that? Over the other options?
Are there any fox platforms I should also look out for?
Basically any car with the 2.3 Turbo, 5.0, 4.6, and preferably late 80s and 2 door.
Autotragic won't honestly be an issue, I have Foxbody parts, and 3 tremec T-5s available for a a good price if I ever feel like it.
late 90s mark IX is good, look for an LSC model (the grill is body-colored) which i think had a tuned up mustang engine?
i've heard they fucking eat ignition coils alive though, like you have to change them once a year
Hey /o/ I'm searching for a new shift knob for my 06 wrx. I'm not so much a fan of the knobs I'd prefer a stick/pole? shaped one I think. Not looking for anything fucking gay like those pink crystal ones or whatever but I'd prefer something either black or gold or aluminum. Heavy weight as well even though I'm new to standard and unsure what the difference is. Budget is around 90 used more or less, thanks. Pic related is the shape I sort of have in mind.
I have a Razo shift knob I found at an UpGarage, the box said it was 462g but I can't find it online anywhere and I threw away the box. They do have the RA 66 which is 400g but it has carbon fibre on it. Or if you can find one the RA 120 which has a 375g model.
Great shift knob though, would recommend.
how much would it cost to repaint a mr2
probably the first one, its looking a little rough
