thinking about getting into karting...
few things though,
i'm 6'3/6'4, is that going to be a problem?
what kinda budget would i be looking at? ausfag here, so buy a cheapish kart for 2 or 3k, plus another 500 or so for gear? just trying to gauge how plausible this is for me at this point in time.
Height isn't an issue
IDK about price in Australia but consider along with the cost of the kart you need to pay for storing or transporting it, track time, lots of tires, engine rebuilds, and a ton of small things that add up fast. Whatever you think it will cost multiply it by 3 and you'll have a good estimate.
Height is a non issue and it depends on what class you're running
2 strokes and 4 strokes, clones, anything where you can fuck with the engine is a money pit to be competetive, and dirt racing in murrica is awful because of tire treatments
Idk if Margay is in Ozland but they do the IGNITE series where it's a spec chassis and a sealed motor, you control tire pressures oil levels and gearing and some other stuff but nobody can tune or buy better engines, which keeps it cheap
ongoing costs is fine.
i'm tossing up between fixing my current car up a tiny bit and getting a kart (race track is 20mins drive away) or buying a supercharged version of my current car, then using my current one for parts.
or thirdly, saving the money to buy a really nice car in 10 years time.
in short; kart, 4agze aw11 or honda nsx
So guys, I've been shown to a well kept 1989 E30 325i touring, 189k km on it, owner is a 65yo looking to get rid of it cause he's going blind. Should I pull the trigger? Pic semi unrelated but car is in same color and has them bbs wheels
He wants €2500 but I think I can go lower. Also I'd use it as a daily and to be honest, I'd rather keep the car than sell it to some stancefag even if it's that amount of money. I just couldn't bear knowing he'd ruin it.
What is the most efficient way to damage this vehicle? (financial/function/etc)
Please leave your weeb shitboxes outside this thread, this is only for cars that don't sound like weed wackers.
Pic related was one of my favs.
Maserati GranTurismo sounds awesome. And LaFerrari was bretty gud. Ferraris just have that special sound.
Anyone got experience with those solar panel (car)battery chargers? Specifically, charging through the cigarette outlet. I mostly drive short distances, so my battery needs a little help keeping the charge, especially with cold weather comming. If I could just leave the panel on top of the dashboard, plugged into the cigarette outlet it would be perfect.
I don't park anywhere near an electrical outlet so a normal charger isn't gonna work. And since I park in a lot someone could just steal anything not locked into the car.
Mate, I suspect that you live in Scandinavia like me, and have experienced our winters... just think a few minutes on how much sunlight we get per day for the coming monts
The best bet would be to buy a cheap charger and bring the battery inside and give it a good charge once a week or something at most. If your battery flatlines within that short of a timespan without it being below -20c or something constantly and you're not struggling to start it then I'd consider replacing my battery, as yours may be of shit quality or too old
I've got this charger...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Yes, fellow scandi indeed. However
1. Needs some extra in the summer months as well to not wear out by being low charge all the time.
2. My battery is bolted in the boot, taking it out and back in regularly isn't really viable. Also alarm won't work
All that does it make it take twice as long before loosing charge.
Someone just told me they don't believe in spending money on cars. What do?
Why do people say hondas sound so bad? Just listen
I'm getting the Nova instead of the Skyline.
Alright /o/, what car do you think will shoot up in value over the next 5-10 years?
I have a 2004 ford Mustang and I need your help. How the fuck do you take these screws off? They are made of plastic and I've been trying to take them off.
