which one and why
>tfw wheelbase of 103.2 inches
Anyone else here have /toobig/ feels?
not bad but
>193.8 in overall length
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE. Where does it all go
>i guess dat ass
How do I git gud?
How do I learn to "see" the line and pick the best one
How do I git gud at braking and weight transfer
It kinda feels like I'm just winging it whenever I go for spirited driving
buy aftermarket air vent cupholder
fill a Styrofoam cup to the brim with water
never let it spill while you drive
This is pretty spot on.
Karting is truly the best way to improve.
You could probably just rent a car at your local circuit
so everyone on /o/ with a small Japanese Nippon mobile seems to hate any American cars, and vice versa.
my question is who else actually doesn't give a shit? they both have their obvious benefits.
which leads to my point, of why don't people have both. A muscle car, and an "import" for a DD.
nip cars get better gas mileage, good traction in all scenarios (FWD), are cheap to own and are reliable, drive nicely, handle good etc.
(good) American cars are usually much more powerful, much faster, better acceleration, better handling at speed, better braking, more stability, comfortable, better for highways, etc
anyone with a job can easily afford a muscle car and an economy car. so why the hate between the two
>i personally own an LS1 T/A and a 1.5l Civic DX hatch
why not you?
>Gonna debate you on better braking stock for stock though.
well my 4th gen TA out-brakes the fuck out any eco car i've driven
my civic has fucking drums on the rear. and tiny single piston fronts. it's only good enough because the car is light and not going very fast
I feel lucky not to be part of the nationalistic shit flinging that comes with car culture. I only rank brands and cars on their own merits, not by the country they come from. I'd gladly have a high displacement Foxbody and a high boost S-Chassis in my garage.
Do you text and drive? Be honest
Do you think it makes you a shitty driver?
>what's that it has only two doors? insurance hike!
>what's that it displaces more than a liter? insurance hike!
fine i can give you tha-
>REAR WHEEL DRIVE? LOL HIKE
>MANUAL? THAT'S SPORTY! INSURANCE HIKE TOO
Does your auto maker offer free brand name candies?
how can the Toyobaru expect to compete with these?
What ever happened to the utility coupe?
I know the Aussie's still make them, but the ranchero and the el camino are both part of American automotive legend. Why did they just stop existing?
Should I get?
Aight, so these are my first two cars that I've owned, both of which I still have.
Subaru Impreza SportWagon and Mk2 Golf GTI, which I restored with my dad as a project, and was my first car.
What does /o/ think?
>inb4 "Why didn't you buy a WRX"
I'm 18 and couldn't get insurance on one.
And before you ask, I prefer the Wagon to the Sedan and I need the space to fit a drum kit in the back.
im on my 6th car and still havent been able to acquire a mk2 gti so cheers to you for that one
im partial to subarus so i also like the impreza
on a side note:
i think you shouldnt have blacked out the emblem
What do you wear while driving? Shoes, clothes, sunglasses, etc.
Pic related are ARD-336 Progear-MT, developed by Asics and promoted by the FIA. Keiichi Tsuchiya (Drift King) and the rest of the Best Motoring drivers are commonly seen wearing these in the pedal cams, but they cost about $300.
Hey guys, I want to buy a Ferrari 348. I like the look of the car and I want to be able to tell people I drive a Ferrari. Its a shitty reason I know, but its what I would like to do.
I would like to find a used/abused 348 and "restore" it if possible. I did this to a 987 Boxster and it went well. I understand that the 348 is an entirely different animal though, so using ferrari parts would be expensive (Porsche parts can be found online and in junkyards, especially boxsters). I am wondering
1) can I LS swap a 348 or another ferrari?
2) would doing so...

348 is timing belt + interference, needs an engine out service every 3 years. You won't be able to do it yourself. Yes going to an American V8 will make it easier to deal with but there's 0 chance you are going to be able to do the swap if you're asking here. You can find wrecked Ferraris on Copart. Major service on a 348 is ~$8k, plus whatever else you need to keep it going I would estimate $10-15k every 3 years to keep it in good shape.
So you don't give a shit about resale value, right?
You should keep an eye out for one with a dirty title. The place down the street from me had 2 512's a few months ago. One was $75k and one was $150k. They were almost identical years, miles, condition. The one for $75k had been stolen a couple years ago and written off, so it had a rebuilt title.
And definitely search outside your local area for a good deal. Don't be afraid to drive a few hours for a good deal.
But as far as...

I was curious about this too, but I'd rather find a 308 for the same exact affect.
All of them are expensive for what you end up getting: a go kart with a prancing horse logo.
Good luck finding a rusted snowflake for cheap, though. I want a high revving LS1 dumped into one of these, and 180 degree headers.
Honestly, go for a fiero with a bodykit and drop that FWD 5.3 liter in the bay.
why haven't more car manufacturers gone this route with taking away the camshaft via solenoids? wouldn't this lead to greater performance?

Why are you sat at home a lone on a friday nite?
Why aren't you out dam gym with ur bros of >gf trying to lose all the weight you gained over the holidays?
What is your car related new years resolution?
>tfw I have to work tomorrow
I'm ready for these holidays to be over. They fuck with my work schedule so much since I get the holiday off but normally have to make it up on Saturday.
I probably could've gotten today off. But if you don't work the days before and after the holiday, you don't get paid for it. I'm taking off Monday anyway. And called off last Monday. Also the last like 5 holidays including thanksgiving, I got that Saturday off.
