What's the puddle clutch position in UK cars? and which foot do they use ?

We keep it in the glovebox so it doesn’t frighten Americans
On the left in sea
Low effort troll posts all around so I’m going to kill this thread:

The gas, brake, and clutch are in the same positions whether it’s right or left hand drive. Clutch on the left (not to be confused with an occasional parking brake), brake in the middle, gas on the right. Gear shift patterns are the same as well with low gears left most and high gears right most.

Now everyone shut up and stop being a faggot.
>low gears are away from me and high gears are near me
Total mind fuck actually. It makes sense from a design perspective but it would take me a bit to retrain my muscle memory.
It'd be so weird to hit my own leg every time I shift into reverse rather than my passengers leg.

Whats with the people on this board who act like 300+ HP isn't a decent amount of power? Is the term "slow" just the new catch-all buzzword meme for anything less than 500 HP? Just because a car isn't the fastest car doesn't make it a slow car. 300 HP is more than enough to have fun and get in trouble with, even in a heavier car.

300hp is a meaningless number. Power to weight ratio is all that matters. Put 300hp in a 4,000lb barge and you're going to get rekt, put 300hp in a 2,200lb car and you're going to be the fastest thing on the road 99.9% of the time
Extremely rare, extremely expensive trucks are that fast. I’m so tired of people pulling out rare vehicles that barely exist and acting like it makes a sports car that costs 1/4 as much a bad buy or unacceptable. Go lap the Nurburgring in a BRZ and some fucking truck and tell me which one feels better.
Who is “I”, what car?

And furthermore, why do you faggots only evaluate cars by what they do on perfectly straight roads? Real race drivers use straights to take a break from the real work, if there’s no corners you’re not racing.
>Real race drivers use straights to take a break from the real work
Not him but the Mulsanne and Blanchimont are some of the most stressful, dangerous parts of any circuit. Going fast in a straight line is just as important as going fast in corners, and all successful race cars can do both

Better in every way
Only if youre a turbo manlet
in that case,make sure you also check for the Steyr/Puch variant.It is basically a workhorse variant (no luxury stuff inside).
They have been used by many organizations in Europe.
Its already old enough to import i think.And I guess they are manual.

The G is a true offroader that eats SUV's for breakfast.
The Federal government can decide whether you are or aren't allowed to import a vehicle, but once it's allowed in, they can't force you to mod it for US specs unless it's sold over state lines or used on Federal land like the District of Columbia.
whats so special about these cars?

Force is still only being applied at the vertices, like the other anon said the only potential for damage comes from using an inappropriately sized socket.

thats an idealized socket drawing though
most sockets have little holes at the vertex of the hexagon. the sockets end up grabbing the bolt/nut moreso on the flats

Still a great game though, probably my most favorite NFS release along with High Stakes. Back when EA still poured a lot of soul and hard work into their games.
One my top favorites but might be nostalgia talking. My full version copy was included with a graphics card but I don't remember what the actual graphics card was. For a time I had a bunch of hacks and reskinned cars installed but all was lost to a virus around 2007.

What happened to the 20 dollar oil change??

>service book, maintained by owner, is somehow infallible

Okay, so diy the oil changes and just write down that it was serviced wherever+whenever.

>but no receipts

Okay, so diy the oil changes and hoard the receipts for oil+filter each time.

>but that doesn't prove you actually used the oil+filter on the car

Yeah, I just like to go around buying gallons of oil and spare filters and then not use them in my car all in a bid to get a few extra bucks at resale without actually saving any money on maintenance costs along the way. What gave it away? Was it the fort that doesn't exist built out of full oil jugs in the backyard? Truly by your guile my ruse is exposed and I am bested! Now fuck off and stop wasting my time.
I've never sold a car I've owned for more than a month or so.
But in my experience people don't ask those types of questions anyway.
It's assumed you had the oil done when the sticker in the windshield told you to.
If someone were to ask I would simply tell them the truth and convey my competence and honesty between the lines.
If they're above 80iq they'd pick up that I too am above 80iq and not a nigger.
Synthetic oil costs more, but also lasts twice as long.
This. Half of buying a used car private is checking out the owner and the owner history and not the car itself. If I look at you and your house and all and then the car is pretty clean then I'm good.
Synthetic oil costs 25% more, but also lasts twice as long.*

>*depending upon fuel trims, vehicle condition, total capacity, climate, age, and driving habits

Also I'm team synthetic. I don't understand buying conventional.

I know a lot of people on /o/ hate EVs but I was recently talking to a buddy of mine who's into RC cars and honestly electric cars could be pretty good for car guys. Electric RC guys have a surprisingly extensive modding community (more than I was aware of), so I can see the same happening with full size EV projects. There's a lot less components to an EV overall, and a lot of the electric conversion guys will tell you building an electric car is simpler than building a gas car. It's literally just scaled-up RC in a lot of ways. Obviously cars like Teslas are complicated, but for ground-up purpose built projects (tube frame cars, buggies, karts, etc), conversions, and kit cars, electric could be the way to go in the future. Anybody feel the same?
Practically I know where you're coming from. Emotionally I'm in love with ICE engines and culture the sound the smell all of it. I realize the direction things are going and it makes me sad.
I wouldn't worry too much. Even if all future cars become EVs ICEs will still be a hobbyist thing as long as there are people like you to support the hobby. I don't want to see ICEs die, but I am certainly ready for EVs. Plus road cars are getting less and less appealing anyway. These days all the fun is in off road, kit cars, race cars, and DIY creations.

>There's a lot less components to an EV overall
Not true per se, and the complication of said components is much higher than ICE components. Also less workable.
>and a lot of the electric conversion guys will tell you building an electric car is simpler than building a gas car.
I'm going to tell you it is not.
t. worked on building an EV FSAE car
>It's literally just scaled-up RC in a lot of ways.
When an EV RC car runs away, it crashed and you lose a cheap toy. When your EV car runs away, the occupants die, especially when you're in a god damn Mini. If the wiring on your EV car fails, you die. If the batteries malfunction in the wrong way, you die. If the charging goes completely wrong, you die. Apart from a Pinto-style gas tank, there are few components in an ICE vehicle that can kill you in the way EV components can.

For a fun exercise: go read the FSAE rulebook. Look up the safety rules for EV, and compare the sheer amount of them to the rules for ICE. I wouldn't go so far as to say that an EV FSAE car would be safe on the road, but it's pretty damn safe and as far as I know, nobody has died in one (yet). The amount of rules to make them so safe, however, is staggering.
I've honestly wondered if it would be possible to build an electric, driveable full scale version that looks similar to one of those buggies. Offset drivers seat with the motor next to the driver. That would be sick as shit.
