Im a young kid and i've been meaning to do a cafe racer project for a while, im interested in the old 80s Yamaha FS1s, but i wanted something with a little more grunt so i got the bigger brother (the YB100) Im looking for any suggestions you think could make this bike look good, thanks
Co worker bought Civic EX Coupe CVT, doesn't work for shit in snow. Is she doing something wrong or do light fwd CVT cars just suck ass in snow?
Best or cheapest way to achieve a 3" lift on an AE86?
I have one in my posession and im just going to beat the piss out of it. Think rally beater.
Going to rip both bumpers off and weld up the metal bumper supports into mini-pushbars. Mount a lightbar on front and a cb radio with antenna on it.
Cant find any info besides lowering it, fuck that.

Will it ever come in a hatch again?
thinking about getting this for about $400, i get get a new Fel-Pro head gaskets for about $40. My father in-law has a fullshop at his place and is willing to help me replace it. do you think this is a good idea /o/? i just into offroad
I'd say get it if $400 isn't a big investment to you, and you're also aware that it may have large issues with the gearbox, and the engine may have been damaged from the overheating... also be ready for the fact that it might end up being an oversized paperweight quicker than you'd like it to
Thats nearly more of best-case scenario in my humble opinion.
First of; gearbox issue is unidentified. No mention of how it performs otherwise, if it has happened before or what he had to do to get it out.
Second; very few pictures, but from what I can see it either has a bent door, or the doorframe itself has suffered structural damage. Headlights are glazed as fuck and in dire need of a polish, and from the shitty photo the tires look bald. Combined they make me think that this has been a beater,...

I really want an enthusiast driving car. Problem is, I haven't driven manual but like twice.
If I got a Fiesta ST and had my brother get it home for me, would I be able to get up to manual driving prowess pretty quickly?
The only other things I've considered (and tested) are a 228i (probably too expensive) and both the FRS/BRZ, which obviously all come in automatic.
Should I risk learning manual for one of the highest rated enthusiast cars or just go automatic?
>should i risk learning manual

I fucking hate cars that have everything so crammed up in the engine bay. Right now my Nissan Maxima took a shit on me and I have to replace the alternator. There's no way I can reach it so I have to take it to a fucking shop so they can rape me.
South Carolina, reporting in.
Last November, Bugatti announced that the Veyron replacement would be known as Chiron. Named after the dominating driver of the 20’s and 30’s, Louis Chiron, the car is expected to utilize a variation on the Veyron’s immensely powerful W16 quad-turbo heart. Now, a new report has surfaced alleging the car will continue the modern Bugatti tradition of setting insanely high top seeds.
According to Magazin ProDriver CZ, technical specs have been shared at a recent customer presentation prior to the car’s unveiling at Geneva this upcoming March. The numbers play out...

Reminder that Koenigsegg are still better and always will be. Regera > Chiron.
Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread

>Also, look through the thread for questions that can be answered by you.
what info do you need to do an engine/tranny swap into a car.
I never did anything more complex than rotor/pad swaps but I finally have a garage to work in.
My aunt has an old 83 subaru brat thats been garaged for the last 20 years. The body looks great but it has no engine.
the wiring loom is important as you will want the dash board and ignition barrel working I suppose
also there are problems like the shift linkage and throttle linkage
that is the complex part
the rest is just knowing what parts will fit in the space available
you have a subaru leone yes ?
that being the case an ea 71 or 81 may fit the bill
Whats a good movie for car lovers?
Most are directed at 13 year olds which I guess says something about us, but
>gone in 30 seconds
>fast and furios
>dukes of hazard
you'd be better pressed to ask this on /tv/ but they're all cunts
also, just ask google
Alright so I'm in the market for a cheap jeep that I can dd in. Is the Cherokee a good option? Are there any problems that I should look out for? What do I need to know? Also general Jeep thread.
check rear main seal oil leaks, check the rear driveshaft for fucked ujoints, check the axle shafts for fucked ujoints, check if it overheats. they are pretty bulletproof for the most part though as long as you keep fluids in it
Absolutely unkillable if you keep coolant in them.
Even then, they need to get pretty hot to eat themselves.
Keep in mind they run hotter than most, this is normal. If it goes above 210 I would start to wonder about the cooling system though.
My dad has gone through several, he has a toolbox he bolts down in the back with about a thousand pounds of tools in them + overload springs.
Get the |6 ONLY.
What makes you rage /o/?
For me it's this flat tire in the pic that just fucking happened, and my mom starting the car when its running, as well as people driving cars when they're cold.
Why is Toyota not producing any good sports car since 2000?
I like the Gt86 but it's more Subaru than Toyota with that boxer engine. Why are they doing that instead of developing with Yamaha a great L4/6 engine that normal people can afford, like they used to do
This new supra isnt going to be an affordable daily sports car, its going to cost like 150k+ and will be some kind of hybrid with more computer power than a google server to compete with at least the new NSX
>its going to cost like 150k+
I thought it was going to cost like $70,000-90,000?
Disappointed its going to be another AWD Twin turbo six cylinder with semi-auto transmission only though.. The vette offers Manual, Automatic, and semi-auto clutch.
Snek also still comes with Manual only (even though it ultimately hurts its sales)
Maybe Honda and Toyota are hoping they strike gold like the R35.
