When did you realize that these two represent everything that's wrong with modern car culture?
How realistically possible is it to keep a car forever?
Rest in peace alfredo's BRZ
He couldn't brake in time bc some faggot got in an accident ahead of him. He's fine though. Love. Its what makes a subaru, catch on fire. AND NOT ONLY CATCH ON FIRE BUT FUCKING EXPLODE.
i'm thinking of making an electric supercar that uses a HTS materials-based drive-train. stuff like HTS magnets for braking, accelerating, and so forth.
i even thought about using a fluid that changes viscosity when a voltage is applied to it, and build a suspension system around it so that you can stiffen and loosen your vehicle using simple voltage adjustments rather than tooling the actual coils or shocks.
the HTS magnets would be cooled by liquid nitrogen, which would then be cooled through magnetic refrigeration. all of this is sort of meant to be a...

oh yeah i forgot to mention that maybe nitrogen as a gear lubricant is plausible due to its chemical inertness, physical volatility and low viscosity, but i haven't really worked out how gears in cryogenic conditions would handle the shock. i mean we heat treat them but can the reverse be done? to treat alloys so that they are insulated enough to avoid shock induced heat transfer?
the liquid nitrogen cools the HTS which means a smaller motor is needed. less weight less materials, ergo it's more efficient, even if it does use liquid nitrogen which requires more power to keep cold. It's easier to cope with using more power but having more materials is a fixed expense you can't mitigate, therefore it deserves more attention.
Can a base 6th gen civic compete?
I'm looking at buying a 2010 Toyota Yaris with 45k on the odometer for 7 thousand. I've taken it to my mechanic to get checked out, and it looks good. Insuring it will be pretty cheap too. Anything I'm missing?
Kind of faggy little cars, but fairly reliable. The RS had transmission issues with both the auto and the manual, so be wary of that. Also, the exhaust system is prone to rotting out if you live in a snowy area.
Other than that, fairly good as a basic DD. The non-RS models are slow and boring as fuck, keep that in mind. Like, to the point that it will annoy you.
Why do you want that vehicle?
Do you think an auto enthusiast board would have extensive knowledge of the 'Toyota Yaris'?
What does Yaris mean?
Do you have children, and/or a vagina?
Do i dare to buy a 97 2.5 td with the vm motori engine, 242 transfer case that had its headgasket and tops renovated some 3000 km ago?
It seems like a very decent, fairly economic suv. I just like to commute in comfort, handle snow and occasionally do a bit of lightweight offroading.
Boxy cars can be beautiful and handsome. What are they.

Hi /o/, i'm seeking a bit of mechanical help. I can't find out what wrong on my moms car.
She drives a Kia Rio 5 2006 and after having changed the battery and the windshield washer pump, and by mistake leaving the key in overnight (thus completly draining the battery), the car wouldn't start. It cranks, but it doesn't start.
Therefore, I checked the ignition coils but there aren't any voltage between the two connector connected to the top of the coil when the motor was cranking.
I was wondering what could cause this problem.
I've seen on other cars sometimes after the battery is disconnected and reconnected the ECM won't pick up the crankshaft position sensor, you can try to unplug it and plug it back in, or disconnect the battery and and reconnect it after a bit, then crank it again.
