The Mighty Max comes with an engine that makes 290 horsepower in the Evo. Unfortunately the transmission is garbage, but the early Mazda B2600 has a transmission that's known to hold 600+ horsepower in the RX-7, and came with an earlier Mitsubishi engine, so you can bolt a Mighty Max engine right into it and make gobs of power.

When will these faggot cyclists learn that they shouldn't be on the road? Every single faggot that rides a bicycle on the streets has mental problems that just puts everybody else in danger. They're either always blocking traffic and trying to start shit thinking they are above everyone else, or they think the laws don't apply to them and then wonder why everyone hates them. Why hasn't congress been more active in keeping these retards off the roads?

Looking for compact pickups like the '11 ranger pictured. Lotsa bigass pickups out there but I have a big dick so I don't need a pickup to compensate.

What else is out there in the compact pickup world?

If so maybe one day someone could make a RWD LS swapped version. Finally it will be as fast as it looks and as reliable as it should be.

Hi /o/,

I really hope you can help me with this. I was in Scotland on holiday in January. On the way back, my clutch failed. I got this replaced at an autoshop, but as I left the shop and started driving again, after about 10 minues the ABS light on the dashboard came on, and I could hear a weird whirring sound under the right wheel. Called them to take it back, but as I returned and came off the motorway, shifting into lower gears, the gearbox stopped working altogether. Car just slowed right down, and I couldn't get the gears to work at all. Anyway, managed to limp back, they said they'd fucked up, apologised, said something had shorn off a ball bearing (hence the ABS light coming on), and replaced the clutch again.

I then left again, and because it was late booked into a motel halfway through the journey. When I came off the motorway again, though, the same thing happened. Clutch pedal was completely loose and went straight to the floor, and the gearbox wouldn't work again. Again, in a blind panic, I got it moving, but this terrifies me. I have autoclub membership so called out a guy but he couldn't find anything wrong. Managed to get back to London the next day. Didn't happen again but as I was back in town and in the lower gears, I could feel the gearbox was a bit stiff.

Anyway, I haven't driven it since, and it's now gone into an approved repair centre. They've come back and said there's an issue with the wishbones in the suspension so those are being replaced. They can't find anything wrong with the gearbox, but I'm scared to drive this car until I know what happened here. They've suggested dissembling it, but I figured I would ask you guys first as you would know.

Car is a Vauxhaul Corsa, 6 years old, 50,000 miles, manual transmission, diesel. I know it's a shitty box but it's my starter car and it's been a very good and reliable drive up until now. Any ideas what happened here?

thanks for the story anon not gonna help though

Could have just not have reinstalled the axle fully after reinstalling the transmission. I have done it myself.
>>
I'd stop fretting and just drive it. You sound like the kinda person every shop dreads, doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about but insists on doing his own research when he doesn't know a ball joint from his fully erect penis. The slave, master, clutch, or transmission are not the issue. Slave, master, or pressure plate would not allow the clutch to disengage. Clutch issue would not engage period. Transmission you'd feel it through the shifter or you'd lose a gear completely through a bent fork or bad synchro. Have Vauxhall replace the fluid with oem spec, make sure the axles are installed correctly. Next time take the car to a better shop to have this shit felt right the first time, and if it's too expensive ride the fucking bus.
>>
>>21000836
I know. Sorry.

>>21000840
Yeah, maybe that's what it was. I dunno what linkage is, but the shop owner said to me if the linkage was done wrong, that would explain the whirring noise. Anyway, I'll mention this to them, too, thanks.

>>21000852
This actually made me laugh out loud. You're right - I am that kind of arsehole, I know. It's actually pathetic. I can tell on the phone to them already they're like fuck, shut the fuck up. Thanks for the advice, anyway. I'll sage this one just for you.
>>
is it the floor shifter? they've taken the linkage down with the subframe and put it back a tiny bit differently aligned lmao you melon head

Any other older people who have never bought their own car? I’m 35 years old and because I’m an only child, I’ve never had to buy my own car in my entire life. Since I turned 16, my parents have given me 5 different hand-me-down cars. It’s kinda strange when I think about it that someone my age has never had the car buying experience themselves.

It's not that weird.
I live in a poorer eu country where people only change their car every 20 years, usually giving it to their children.
So it's not weird for said children to keep said car for another 20 years.

n1 style catback if possible. straight piped. UEL headers if possible.

I'm gonna buy an MR2 Spyder later on in the summer and I definitely plan on getting a hard top for it. I looked online and the ones that I found that seemed fairly affordable were Duraflex ones, but I am well aware of the garbage build quality. Car forums (besides this one) are really weird to understand for me at least, and many posts on this topic are over a decade old. Does /o/ know any good hard tops out there that are at least decent and won't empty my bank account for a few months? Or should I just deal with the convertible top for a bit more than I want to and buy an OEM top?

Just save up and get OEM, there’s a ton of additional parts that are covered in the overall purchase like weather stripping, etc. I had mine sitting around for a little bit before I got it, but you get what you pay for.

Also it’s worth the extra for the ‘03 and after, they tend to be better taken care of.

"this car is a piece of junk, got tons of common problems" is true for every 15 y/o car, it's all luck of the draw when cars get that old, and you never hear of the success stories of someone never having issues, so confirmation bias is a big thing

When I was in highschool I knew a drug dealer who was a few years older and drove a Corolla, he smoked Newport cigarettes and blasted rap all day in it and it smelled like cheap cologne, weed, and Newports. Very comfy to ride around in while he visited trap houses and bought coke from the Asian Crips.
