This is my first time posting in here, but i would like to get some help.
I need to do a project so i can get my degree in car engineering, but i have no ideas of what to do.
Can you help me with ideas guys?
Thanks a lot.
(Sorry about my english, i am from Mexico)
Lets bring this shit back to life. Show me your 100+HP/L engines
What does /o/ think of mk4 golfs?
Junkyard tool finds
do you offer to pay for tools you find at the wreckers or just throw them in your box?
just found this kit in with the spare of a Jetta, its a cheap kit but good enough to use in a pinch.
I have a similar bargain-bin (HF probably) tool kit that i bought about ten years ago, and lives in my truck. it satisfies probably 90% of my wrenching needs. The screwdrivers are shit now (the phillips is looking more and more like an ice pick every day) but the rest of it is exactly what i need.
with respect to your question, i've never found anything more than a random socket on the ground at a junkyard, and i just put it in my pocket
Whenever I buy junk cars I love luxury vehicles because they always have medkits, nice road signs and flares, and decent spare tool sets in the trunk.
But most of the time, unless it's a repo car there's not much in it.
Hi guys, I'm sure threads like this pop up all the time, but I'm mildly-interested in buying a DeLorean. How rare are these cars in actuality? The only way I've been able to find some for sale is on craigslist and some Facebook groups. I know less than 10k were manufactured (ish?) and I do have the money to buy one, but I've seen prices go from $10k-$50k. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Also I don't post/lurk much here so if you're going to come thru and destroy me then...please refrain I suppose
If Wheeler Dealers has taught me anything, then $15K is a good price for a decent-condition one with some minor issues and dings.
Note that fixing dings in a DeLorean is a bit more difficult than fixing them on an ordinary car. With an ordinary car, you might be able to get away with paint and polish with the more minor imperfections. But with the DeLorean, it isn't painted - the body is raw exposed stainless steel. So that don't work.
Does your car have a turbo, /o/?
>join thread just to shitpost about underage faggots bitching about boomers
Ok, $3000 is pretty fucking ridiculous.
New HONDA CR-Z
2L four-cylinder engine turbo charger.
What do you think?
I like it. But I think the rear would be better if they had put more or less the same design than the rear of the european Civic VIII, with the long rear light. Just like the old CRX actually.
That's just a facelifted old CR-Z.
The new CR-Z hasn't been released yet. It's rumored to get the Civic chassis instead of the Fit one currently, and it's RUMORED to get the 2.0L Turbo.
But nothing's been released and there are no confirmations
Is there any way to buff out or get rid of the outline left by the "POLICE" decal on the trunk ?
Anybody own this car? How viable would this be as a daily driver in Europe? They're just so affordable, it's really tempting.
Actually if I get a 1990 or earlier model I'd only have to pay €25 a year in tax, insurance would be half price as well.
I'm more concerned about the size as it's the same length as a Range Rover with a huge bonnet, and just the general reliability situation in all weathers.
>watch young couple get in the car
>the woman's driving
what kind of cûck allows this to happen?
Also, you should allow your woman to drive sometimes so that you can teach her to be a better driver. That way she isn't a danger to the rest of us when she's on the roads.
Men driving the car by default is probably a large part of the reason women are terrible drivers.
>mfw you feel the idea of a woman driving their partner around somehow compromises the partner's masculinity
For the first year or so of my relationship with my current partner, she drove me around everywhere partly because I didn't have a full driver licence yet. But she gave me driving lessons, helped me overcome my nerves and encouraged me to go for the driving test (after I had failed several times before and gotten disheartened).
Where my father's teaching methods had failed, hers succeeded. I passed the test almost perfectly.
Nowadays, she's about as good of a driver as I am. Still better at handling corners than me, but on the other hand, I'm better at reversing maneuvers. So when we go out on a date, there's no strong pressure for either one of us to be -the- driver. We're both comfortable with one-another's driving skills (the fact that she drives a 6-speed manual certainly helps).
We also roughly alternate picking up the bill when going out to dinner or lunch, because we both think the idea of the man having to pay on a date all the time is bullshit, and she has a decent-paying job so she has no issue with paying for stuff some of the time.
You are a secret agent like James Bond. What car would you drive?
Something that suits the circumstance but isn't flashy. Some fancy occasion where I have to rub elbows with millionaires? I'd probably just go for an S63 AMG, instead of a one of a kind Aston.
What's the difference between MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3?
Motogp: 1000cc 4 cylinder, prototype engines, high state of tune. Highest weight.
Moto2: 600cc 4 cylinder, control engines made by honda, medium/average state of tune. Similar weight to motoGP.
Moto3: 250cc 1 cylinder, prototype engines, high state of tune, ridiculously light weight, tiny tyres.
Moto3 is 250cc, NA single-cylinder bikes, making around 50hp
Moto2 is 600cc, NA inline-four bikes (engines all identical, produced by honda), making approximately 140hp
MotoGP is 1000cc, NA four-cylinder bikes, making approximately 240-260hp. These bikes must be complete prototypes, which is why MotoGP is often compared to F1 in terms of status. For reference, MotoGP bikes are the fastest accelerating land-based race machines anywhere in the world outside of dedicated drag weapons. However, due to the natural disadvantages of two-wheels compared to four, many car-racing...
