Word of warning bench racers need not reply.
Any anons here have an aggressive locking differential?
How do you like it compared to a lax locking differential? Open Differential? Spool or welded differential?
Does it scare you with how it jerks and locks up? Or have you come to handle it?
Don't currently own one but I've driven with open, locked, loose LSD and tight LSD.
Tight is a little more difficult on the street. Although no where near as bad as a fully locked diff.
Loose always worked well for my in my RX7 (clutch type) back in the day. Mash throttle and it was on when I wanted it.
I'm looking at a 2000 Volvo s70 glt for sale. It's a 2.4l awd with 107k. It's $1750. I'm wondering how reliable they are. I don't want any issues as this will be my sisters winter car who lives out of state. Her bf can do oil changes and that's about it. It has a turbo charged 5 cylinder B5254t engine and I'm not sure what transmission. Do the transmissions or motors grenade before 150k frequently etc. Thanks in advance
Be prepared for possible ETM failure (The Fly-by-wire throttle module) I had a 2000 S70 and when that failed, It was about a $800 fix at the time ( a few years ago)
but if it's been maintained properly and the fluids are kept up, It should be fine. My S70 has over 200k on it and still ran pretty good.
Just remember, it's foreign so parts will be a little more expensive and harder to replace.
Mine wasn't AWD or Turbo, so I can't say.... Maybe the Turbo AWDs used a standard cable throttle... Not sure.
What do you guys think about sc300s?
They seem really good to me, and I can find them cheap in my area.
Not as pretty as its older brother, I don't like the lights. But it looks like a cool coupe and long hood is sexy.
Great engine in it.
Please don't stance it. But do give it some "stance" if you get what I mean.

Original M50 broke before I owned it.
Parking brake was broken, had no radio, most of the interior was apart, and headliner was missing when I got it
Under my ownership the windows stopped working, the drivers side rear window was broken, part of the aftermarket digital dash stopped working, and the fuel pump broke.
Leaked p/s fluid through the cap, but that was a ford problem and not a BMW problem.
Also the battery was the wrong size and started making contact with metal and causing the car to cut out for a second every time it hit.
Post cars that have potential. 240sx obvious start
Honestly, with only 840kg in stock this has a lot of potential if you swap out a bigger engine
Are there any low budget nice looking sport cars?
What is low budget?
>inb4 I need to pick up chicks
OP never said he was gay, don't make assumptions like that.
Look at this absolute fucking BEAST
why are g35s so cheap?
checked online today, these things are dropping into below 6000 range near me. ~100,000 miles usually. my question is what's the deal? is it just because it's a 10-12 year old car now or are they unreliable hunks of shit that have been beaten on their whole lives?
So I'm watching Initial D Legend, with the eurobeat edit that some anon made. It's pretty good, but another complaint I have is the new VAs. Takumi sounds like such a loser holy shit. Does it get any better? Or is Legend just completely inferior to the original?
Porsche 928 as a first car. How bad of a choice would it be, /o/?
Are the 90s models less of a money hole than the originals?
Thanks for even giving this a shot, I appreciate any and all advice although purchasing a new car entirely is out of the question for the next few months to a year.
I drive a 1995 Honda Accord LE with ~170k miles on it. In the last 4k miles and the corresponding 8 months or so I've had a very odd problem with my car.
About 70% of the time the car is running it runs perfectly normally. The power steering pulley assembly is a little loose and so it squeaks but other than that there are no routine issues.
The other 30% of the time, when...

One thing I forgot to mention is that I can get the car out of its borked state by turning the car off and back on. This is useful at stoplights but as soon as I put the car into gear and begin to drive again it reenters borked state.
I'd love to design a car, even if it consists primarily of donor parts and is more a kit car than a bonafide new brand.
Something small, like a miata, maybe a little bigger. 1.5L turbo vtec, room for two midgets in the back.

I sat and watched some guy do this at the parking lot of my school at -32c... I was nice enough to help him call a tow truck
What's up /o/, My turbo blew awhile back and I finally have the cash to get a new one.
I have the choice of spending $400 on a used garrett S14 GT28 with steel braided lines from a known trusted seller, Or I can get the S15 GT28r with about 50 more hp for $830 brand new.
Which one would you go with? Buying used turbos is pretty sketch but he sells quality parts.
>pic related it's the used turbo, he says ''minimal play'' and there's no scrapes on the inside of the housing or anything.
So what's the deal with Sport/Performance Air Filters? Do they improve throttle response or is that bullshit?
I drive a Seat Ibiza 1.4 with 63 kW. Don't get me wrong, I know it's a slow as shitbox but it's my DD and Europoor so no high kW car because of insurance; I don't want to "tUn3" it, I just want a better throttle response.
>So what's the deal with Sport/Performance Air Filters?
They don't restrict the airflow as much as regular filters so there should be an improvement in throttle response. On paper. Depends a lot on the condition of the rest of your car. Don't expect much gain if any at all. What's the point in gaining 1-2% on an 85 hp car?
