What kind of radar detector do you use, /o/?
Bootlickers fuck off
39 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I just recently bought a shitty Whistler one at walmart for like $50. Most of my commute is in the city though. Thing always fucking goes off though but when I cruise by cops sitting in the corner it's always a different frequency like K or KA or some shit. Everything else is X. What the fuck are the frequencies? Do other people's radar detectors throw the detection off? Does K mean "nigger slow the fuck down police are in the area"?
If you're in a rural area then you don't need a radar detector in the first place. Can't detect a cop if there's no cops to detect.
Oooh big strong chad over here with his expensive piece of plastic made in China that he bought from a snake oil salesman
I don’t actually have one yet, I’m just defending the ideology of not being a little submissive bitch.
Maybe you should get rid of your guns too, because people got scared that other people died where guns were not allowed!
You say that, but I'd rather have some warning for the odd speedtrap.

Not really satisfied with my car. Not a car guy. Don't want the hassle of buying a new car and doing payments again

How would you guys suggest I fix my car to look better? 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe. Types of mods. Paints jobs. Interior. Radio (headunit) tires, rim's etc.

Can help me out?

Sell it, buy a mid to late 90s supercharged Buick Regal, slap a high boost pulley and flexfuel kit on, have it tuned, then laugh your ass off as you slap on every brand new mustang and civic driver in your comfy grandpa sleeper.

I have a 2.5 CVT as my daily. Owned it since new in 2008. 160k so far - I have done 2 CVT fluid changes and the valve cover gasket. Super fucking reliable car.

I have it lowered on Eibach springs and on G35s wheels (two sets of rears for square 19x8.5 wheels).

Makes it look way better. Pic related.

Hello all, I got this car cheap because water froze in the block and it has about a 2" crack at the front of the block below the header. Do you think a decent braze would hold until summer?

Get a welder and a grinder and just fill it in like it was a flat position weld

Do you have photos of the Crack?
yes, a braze can join materials together so close to the weld strenght that it might as well be a weld.
You're propably better off engine swapping it since it might've cracked inside as well.

Haven't seen one of those in a while
brakes work I had to drive the car about 90 seconds to where it could be parked.

I can but until I can clean it up it would not be helpful. Dude tried to grey silicon over it. I have JB weld?

I have another motor that can go in but was really trying to just sell it to get my money back out of it. I would have to fab a carb mount for it and get a carb.

I had a dealer legitimately tell me they were jumping the car next to the one I was looking at; that "my car" was fine. They proceeded to jump the car in front of me--2 minutes later they said it had battery issues.

I showed them my OBDII scanner and they flipped. Avoid the center of any town.

1992 C4 Corvette. Don't be fooled by this nice picture, mine was a piece of shit with oxidized paint and 160k miles. On the bright side it was an LT4 with a six speed so it could be worse.

1986 Mercedes 300E. Bought it from a poor woman (first mistake) for $800 who had bought the car in California instead of flying back east. I was too eager to get a cheap first car and I halfassed the test drive, and it turned out every system on the car was breaking, broken, or "repaired" in the most nigger-rigged fashion. Also that it actually had about 360K miles instead of the 160K on the dash. Had it for two months and my shopping list of replacement parts went over $2K. Around that time the sunroof broke in the open position and I cut bait on the turd and sold it for $400.

On the plus side, by dumping that car I got a great Miata I drove for three years with zero problems.
2006 Mazdaspeed6, had 140k miles on it and still ran surprisingly fine. All I really did was get new tires, oil changes, and change the battery once. Fun car to drive.

Is Buick prevented from making cool cars anymore because of GM policy or because of the soulless corporate types that run it?
File: 1511855795577.jpg (73 KB, 800x554)
73 KB
nah, its because Buick is built for the chinks only. the only reason they're even in the states is so they can make a few bucks off the old generation while they're still kicking around
If you google the corporate GM bullshit that killed the GN in the late 80s and changed Buick's identity it's basically the same. Also: China.

And the fact that in 2019 most Buick buyers are middleaged women with that stupid ass cuv being their best seller.
Policy at GM was that nothing could beat the Corvette.

/o/ I am going on a road trip soon. At one point I'll be going through Utah east to west. What's some of the coolest shit I can do off I70 in Utah?

What's the speed limit out there? Can I go 120 in the desert without worrying about cops?
17 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
police state considers going 20 over the speed limit a crime akin to assault, and plenty of cops wanting to flex their badges
Some people takes risks and some don't. Most of the people that consider cars appliances don't go 120 MPH. Or if the person isn't into speed and just cares about MPG. Not everyone likes the same thing. Yes, I've driven fast like most of /o/, but it's so much better to drive fast on a track. There's no holding back on a track but on public roads you have to have some restraint.

For me, it's 5 MPH below the speed limit. Gotta save fuel.
no teenager these days drives anything fast, they’d rather spend the money on an expensive new econobox

Its easier to speed in city highways than out in the middle of nowhere. You've been watching too many movies.

When surrounded by infrastructure and walls there are only so many places a cop can come from, if you also check your rearview you can ensure 100% detection of cops. In the middle of nowhere they could be anywhere, even miles and miles away. x100 if there is trees

They might be japanese but theyre kinda built like a chevy in the sense that all of the seals fail around 200k miles. One anon mentioned the fender harness, which is important if youre looking at a car that's been lowered. But on a stock s chassis you want to look at:

Solder joints in the window motor relay box often fail but are easily fixed, same for the wiper motor timer and TCU.

KAs all lose their timing chain guides

SRs eat their lifters

CA18s are really stout desu, just make sure the timing belt has been serviced or is at least in good condition

The rubber fuel lines like to crack at the fuel tank and at the motor

Vert s13s were built like shit and have lots of bare steel that eventually rusts away

Hello /o/

Today marks the end of my w124 Mercedes experience.

Yesterday i changed the glowplugs and it took me over 7 hours, but my efforts were futile.
My mechanic just called me as he took the car in for the yearly check today, the repairs because of rust, broken bearings, broken steering, wheels and much more are too expensive, and i will sell the car for parts.

my Mercedes was with me for nearly exactly 4 years, i travelled all across europe with it and added about 100000 kilometers to the 300000 which were already on the tach.

I will now post pictures of him as a last tribute, only if people are interested of course.
