What the fuck can they even do for a type R?
the racing version of the NSX uses a 4 pot turbo with no hybrid shit
no way any one would be willing to pay MORE than the V6TT Hybrid for that
Plus the 2020 racing version is basically a Civic Type R with a NSX body (FWD 4pot turbo)

What kind of drone is so hung up about arbitrary rules like this that they'd sit behind some retard for miles solely because "DURRR NEVER PASS ON RITE!!"? What do you do, just sit in the left lane in a giant line of a million cars with the other lanes totally empty? And what if someone comes along in the right lane just minding his own business doing the speed limit? Does he have to slam on the brakes to match the idiot's speed?

No they're not retard, they ditched Opel and so anything with the GM badge on it isn't a simple carryover from Opel, but a brand new Chevy-derived piece of shit.

How so? They've been pretty consistently showing that GM ranks in the bottom half year after year, while the Koreans tend to be at the top.

kek, stupendous amounts of cope
Once in 2011
Once in 2019, still below Hyundai and Genesis
Other than that, they've been consistently in the bottom tier for the past decade.
>cucksumer report is shit
Kek, I've posted several reliability assessments that aren't CR and they all still rank GM as being bottom-tier trash. The only counter you have is a one-year assessment of cars people drove over 200k miles in that one year, from the same site that declared Korean cars as lasting longer than burgershit >>22016355

You're almost as hopeless as GM itself.

It depends on the tire, but for everyday street riding most people about 90 percent of the tires rating into them. Just about every tire has it's maximum PSI labeled somewhere on the sidewall.

Will solid state batteries be a game changer for electric cars in the future? By that I mean will they be better than the lithium ion batteries that are currently powering most if not all our electric cars?

Future? Rare earth element consumption for electronics is going to peak before oil.
Switched reluctance motors, such as Tesla is using, don't require rare earth elements.
Sure, if they can figure out the mass production part.
This is actually a more serious problem. We need to get off this rock ASAP.
lmao EVs are fucking garbage and will remain garbage no matter how much money you throw at them.
enjoy the battery fire.
Nope. Solid state batteries will be a game changer for electric planes. Battery tech is already close enough to being good, solid state will certainly push it well above the threshold for worry, but it wont be a game changer. It will however be a gamechanger for electric planes that need that breakthrough.

It won't happen for another 5-10 years though. The real change happening this year or next year is dry electrode manufacturing process that will further increase battery life cycle and reduce cost to manufacture for Tesla.

Thought about a monte carlo
>The downside is the block is pretty weak, and has the tendency to split in half if you make too much power.

A misconception.
It's not the block splits because 'its weak', its the crankshaft that is the cause.

Ford lightened the cranks and blocks.
Biggest issue is the crankshafts lost their middle counterweights when Ford started changing the 302 to be lighter.
302 has a 28oz imbalance
5.0 has a 50oz imbalance
So although the cranks are lighter, which allows the engine to rev a bit quicker, the external imbalance is now greater.
What this does with a cast/nodular crank is it is not that stiff, and will start to whip.
Take a rope or chain and the faster you spin it around the greater the middle of the chain and ends of the chain pull away from the centerline of rotation.
Same thing with the crank.
This pulls on the mains of the block, since the block is just grey cast iron it is not made to flex at all, it is just a casing for the internal components.

>swap them out for aftermarket T5's
I've dealt with a few of the 'aftermarket' T5 upgrades, they are all pretty brutal and don't actually last any longer. One trans in particular actually blew up after a weekend at the track, it was supposed to be able to withstand 400HP, it was used behind a 330HP engine. It didn't make it through Saturday before it shit the bed.

Third gear power shift problem is because the shafts deflect from each other and third gear is in the middle of the cluster, more power/rpm the gears climb each other and then the teeth strip off third.
This is why you never power shift third in a stock T5. Still wouldn't do it in a properly built T5.

This is compounded by the counter shaft clusters rear bearing is retained by a stamped sheetmetal plate. It deflects and allows excessive movement of the geartrain which allows for third gear failure.
Using https://www.5speeds.com/cart/index.php?route=product/product&path=75_18_68&product_id=61
Takes care of that slop, and now your only real problem is actually from too much power through the box and not simply a design flaw.
Using the 2.95 1st gearset is the most durable, using a 4banger gear ratios will strip and be over geared for most applications anyway.
The best Ford T5Z was rated for 330lb/ft, but with simply replacing the above bearing retainer and making sure clearances are proper(blueprinting), the T5 can take 350HP with spirited driving.

Most T5s I've seen blown up are guys who G.I.Joe Kung-Fu grip the shifter all the time and tend to birds nest the clutch anyway.
Course they always blame the T5 as being the weak point and not themselves.
The Mustang T5 is actually a lot stronger than the Camaro T5, FYI. It's a "World Class" T5 instead of regular. Still not SUPER strong, but better than the GM version.
Meh, all that Amerilard shit has been superseded by the influx of Japanese/Yuropoor cars in the 00s.

Buy a E90 335i for 4k, spend a grand fixing the inherent issues with the engines, and you've got a sub 5 second car.

Why are turbos so expensive? I don't mean turbocharging your car. I mean the turbo itself. Shit's like 1 to 2 thousand. It's just a big chunk of metal. Shouldn't that shit be the price of an alternator or something

>Le big chunk of metal
Take a machining class or something and learn about how difficult it is to shape metal into a weird ass turbine tube shape with very low tolerances.
Do tolerances in metal machining work differently in Australia? Is it like how your toilets spin backwards? (wrong) I'm just trying to understand your dumbass perspective
As a matter of fact machining has a different engineering affect depending on what part of the world you do it in. America in winter will make a different metallurgical strength than Australia in summer because of environmental factors, and on average this is why no one wants parts from China there is something really wrong with their weather which produces a hideos affect on metalworking and engineering in general

But I digress, you're an idiot and a larp, I'm right you're wrong stop replying.
