Anyone know where i can get this front diffuser? Looked on atleast 20 websites nothing comes up

Are engines designed to cut out after an accident? It seems like whenever you see a car crash in fiction the engine turns itself off, even if there isn't any damage to the engine itself.
Cars will usually have a fuel cut system that shuts off the fuel pump in an accident. It's usually so that if the fuel lines come loose in an accident and there's a fire, the gasoline isn't still pumped.
Also, if the vehicle is manual transmission, odds are your foot will end up off the clutch and the revs will drop down to the point (even if the engine isn't damaged) where it just stalls and dies anyway.
Just got 1000$, gonna spend it on a new P.O.S. weekend warrior. Using it for street race purposes. Anything I need to look out for in a super cheap car to make sure its not gonna blow up at the starting line? I'm going to be building it a bit obviously but I don't want to miss some glaring problem in the car that I can't fix.
Make sure the car is cold when you go to start it the first time. Whip it around a little, let it warm up, make sure you aren't overheating and the oil and coolant stay in the places where they are supposed to be.
Otherwise if you're spending $1000 and are totally gonna fuck this thing up, look for one with a decent drivetrain that isn't rusted out. You can save a lot of money buying something with beat up bumpers and seats a little torn. And you can replace that stuff easilt with junkyard parts...

What went wrong?
They didn't make enough crazy shit like the Hellcat back in the 90s and early 2000s. They should've taken every car in their lineup and offered an option with the Snek V10 in it. Even if nobody bought them, at least it would draw interest to the brand.
FCA should sell Jeep to Ford. So we can have Jeeps we can actually drive after the warranty runs out. Thinking about it now, Jeep had to totally keep Chrysler afloat with Wrangler and Cherokee sales for years and years.
Post what you're driving through the winter.

S10 single cab with the 4cyl.
Surprisingly it has some balls with the winter tires I have. On Saturday when it was snowing I went to an empty parking lot and became takumi. No weight in the bed and the snow was halfway up my tires, I was actually surprised I didn't get stuck.
I can't wait until the next snow storm, I'm going to have a lot of fun.

So I found a 1999 M3 convertible for 6k in great shape. But I'm worried I'm too much of a poor fag to afford the upkeep. Any common issues on the E36 M3 I should be aware of before I take the plunge.

Everything. Mainly the cooling system.
Water pump will die
fan will die
thermostat will die
Also if you see a red dot above the odo reading that means the odometer has been tampered with.
>12g for a primer covered base model El camino with flood damage
$50g for a cherry 69 Camaro isn't why we hate boomers
Whit like this is why we hate boomers

What's the fastest you've ever driven on public roads
>no lying on the internet addition
140mph in my wife's 2007 M3 when I was taking it home for the first time
120ish in my Miata on the highway.
The stupidest was probably 90mph one night in my old Malibu on a main road next to my house. Goes right by a school with a police and fire station maybe a mile down the road.
Ask a guy who fixes cars pretty gud anything
How hard is it to make a 10 second car /o/? If you had to whip one up for dirt cheap how would you do it?

They immediately cuddled up in one of my Chevrolet hoodies.
Hey, I want to know what kinds of problems come with converting a Front wheel drive car into a Rear wheel drive car? Other than the fact that converting a ff car to rwd turbo is probably very expensive. Would it be easy to mess up any wiring or anything? Because, I want to have my civic hatch (image is not mine but is same kind) to be able to drift. Thanks for the responses. P.S. Please don't flame me I am young and I am still learning.
Well, you'd need to change the motor and transmission
and cutting, welding
it's not worth it unless you're doing a ridiculous $50,000+ build
infact the only time I've heard of a legit FF to FR conversion was a beefed up Scion xB on Top Gear America as some taxi challenge, and that was a $100,000 build..
