Hey Br/os.

Just wanted to say, I’m really loving my 370z lately. I’ve had some interesting rides in the past, and it took a while, but it’s really grown on me.

1996 R33 Skyline S2 5sp: Was so cool when I was 18, started my Nissan love. Ran it up to 260,000km from 60,000km in 5 years and then sold it for $2000 (2008 prices). Came across it in a car yard a few weeks later with a fake GTR badge and a haircut down to 60,000km. Never missed a beat in the 200,000km I drove it for, and the long wheelbase and LSD was so predictable and easy to handle in a slide. A nightmare with bald tyres though.

2002 S15 200sx Spec S GT Turbo:
Was my favourite. I loved that car. It was so wild, rode like absolute shit on crappy Australian roads but was just such a joy to rev out on a mountain touge. I wanted to keep it forever but a Chinese man in a Volvo crashed the front in, it wasn’t the same so I sold it and bought my current daily IS350 F Sport.

BMW Z4M: Bought this at the start of the Corona bullshit after being locked in a house for fucking ages. Did some mountain runs in it, engine was good, not great but the car needed 15 grand to really see it’s potential, if I’d kept it I would have done wheels, tyres, suspension, exhaust, intake, hard top. Unfortunately because of BMW, I just didn’t trust that I wasn’t going to also owe it $10k in rod bearings, lifters, and other stupid BMW shit. I’d rather spend money on mods than preventative maintenance. Sold it to a boomer looking for his retirement toy after only about 4 months. Handling felt unpredictable, not sorted. I couldn’t trust this car despite it being in A1 condition.
>>
370Z: Decided to go final year 2021 6 Speed manual. I wanted that S15 feeling, but I wasn’t going to pay new 370Z prices for a 20 year old S chassis which wouldn’t have been as good as my old one. Took me a while to really embrace it because it’s not as wild as the Silvia, it’s way more composed, the ride quality is much better. Recently I’ve really started loving it though, the solid build quality is on par with my Lexus. The gearbox and engine feel so strong, like you could just beat on it for 300,000km. It’s a weekender so it only gets driven for fun. So far, just tint and ceramic coating. Got a GReddy dual catback arriving this week though. Will probably also do wheels and suspension, maybe some poly bushings, but it really doesn’t need much. The handling is not as tail happy as the Skyline or Silvia, but the mechanical grip gives a lot of confidence in fast cornering. Way better handling than the Z4M. Akebono brakes are top notch. Viscous LSD seems good so far.

The Z feels unbreakable. There is something to be said for a sports car that can really handle the revs reliably. It’s not supercar fast, it’s not miata light, but it’s so damn solid and just loves to be driven hard. So far I’ve chopped:
- Heaps of BMWs
- Audi S3
- Modified S14
- Porsche Boxster
- Golf R

Not bad for a NA V6. I live at the bottom of a mountain touge range area, and I am loving mountain blasting in this car.

Future plans: Add a GR86 to the shed around final model year when they come out with a final edition hopefully with factory brembos and recaros.

So /O, what are your sports car histories?

Hey br/o/s

i recently bought a Civic gen 8 (with 3 doors). Test drive was a blast, car worked perfectly and everything ws fine until i tried to play a cd.
I inserted the CD and the car just straight refused to play it.
It always said "CD reading error"
I suppose the laser is ded since i riedd it with different mint condition CDs.
What can i do? Replace the laser or the whole CD reader? There is no easy access, is it better to let the professionals handle it (my 1st car)

Definitely don't drill a whole or remove the exhaust. That is a guaranteed way to make it sound like shit.
>>
>>24757464
yeah, no, it does sound like shit i agree, but a few days ago i was sitting at a redlight when a tuned BMW launched from the right. It had the anti-lag everything. A bunch of kids were sitting on the nearby bus stop and they paid it no mind.

I had my exhaust off so i decided it's my turn now. I floored it from 2nd next to the bus stop from the left lane and all the kiddos went "WOAHHH", while some old dude grumbled disapprovingly

Idk about you, but i know which car got more of a reaction from the audience :)

In some cases it may cause your MAF sensor to throw check engine light if you don't flash new tune

>>24757380
>If you're feeling a power increase from temperature fluctuation you need a mechanic, not an air cone.
Every car I've driven at least a handful of times has a slight increase in pep on a cool morning (50-60 °F) vs the heat of the afternoon (80-100 °F), especially turbo cars. Cooler air is denser and any engine will be happier being able to fit more air into the cylinder, raising the volumetric efficiency. It's the same as elevation changes.

That said, fuck hot air intakes. No point in them on basically any car with EFI and they demonstrably make cars like my DD (90s scoob) run like dogshit as the stock intake "snorkus" is tuned to remove an oscillation in the MAF hot wire at low RPM that makes it run absolutely pig rich.

All I have is my car and around 8k in the bank. Just the clothes off my back. I left an abusive situation with nothing but my vehicle. I have literally nothing, but I can't the constant abuse and fighting. I haven't been called a single time in over 14 hours, not one text. They'll likely notice I'm gone tomorrow.

Is there any advice anyone can give me on how to start off and where to go? I had a job I left without notice, and I sent a long, sweet letter to multiple bosses trying to explain that I need to escape the area and leave the toxicity of my family far away from me. One already wrote me a letter of recommendation. This has all happened over the past day and I'm freaking out. I may live some days in my car if I can't find immediate work. It's a 2010 rav4 I'd rather not have to sell.

In Reno by the way.

Good for you OP

I lived out of a car for 3 years for the same reasons.. done with the life-sucking family. First year was 100days in a row of highs at least 100F, then that winter was “snowmageddon” then next year was “icepocalypse”. Already Having a marketable skill, you’re in a much better position than I was and I don’t see you living out of your car very long at all. Get comfortable lying if it persist and you can write a PO Box number so it looks like an apartment and the mail will still deliver to it. Most will not take a chance on hiring a homeless individual because it’s interpreted as being inconsistent and unreliable. leaving employer without notice was a shitty thing to do just bc you got fed up living under the same roof with the loud dysfunctional family. When I finally landed my dream job, one of their hiring policies was never hire an applicant that quit their last position without notice.

There is a retarded chink flu that made everyone go nuts because its killing fatties, boomers (and Olympians for some reason?) and governments+corperations all over the world are taking advantage of it for power and profit. There are a ton of shady vax manufacturers that are trying to push their untested science-juiceTM onto the workforce via paying off politicians and doctors so they can turn your immune system into a subscription service and make perpetual profit with no liability (btw the federal government has declared no liability to any vax manufacturer for any side effects including disability and death. Using marketing campaigns that prey on retards hysteria a good chunk of the gen pop believes that if you aren't getting a covid vax in your arm every 6 months then you will get their family killed.

As for why employers want it, its an easy way to manipulate and control a vulnerable workforce. Basically everything is hell now, the umbrella corporation from resident evil controls our lives while we hurdle towards a global great depression and you missed it all because you weren't paying attention. Have fun!

I drive at the speed limit and never over. I always use the passing lane when there is someone in front of me because I don't want to disengage cruise control. So I pass them. Then merge back in. If there is a line of traffic I can't merge back into, then bad luck if you're stuck behind me, I'm not going to speed. We will go at the speed I want to drive, not at the speed you want to drive, you do not get a choice if you're behind someone.

your are not legally allowed to break the speed limit at any time for any reason, even during a passing maneuver,
however de facto is to exceed the speed limit by 30% during normal driving on the open road.
to pass cars the speed limit is exceeded by 50 or 70%,
exceeding the speed limit by 100% or more is for rude showboats who doesn't care about the crash.

This. I once embarrassed a BMW X5 a hilly, winding road with my puny 1.6l Mazda because i was throwing it at the corners goin 90, whereas he was shitting his pants, catching up only on the straight parts. I was embarrassing him all the way into town where he finally smoked me on a long straight stretch of road.

A few days ago i was driving on the same road with 4 mates in the car. It was climbing the hills in top gear going 50.
I once filled it up with premium and it started roaring like a hotrod
That car is brutal.

The problem with Mazda is they're just another normie FWD 4 cylinder plain car, but they try to market themselves as being of distinct luxury and off the charts performance like Great Value Lexus or some shit. If they just stopped being so pretentious and realized they're no better than Nissan, Honda or Toyota they would be better off, just a bunch of meh sedans and S/M/L crossovers for retards who think they've got elite styling and mad performance like some Audi, Volvo or Lexus for 50% off. Don't fool yourself there was some old Japanese craftsman guy sewing the leather onto the steering by hand and sanding the wood for the center dash for your CX-5R2D2 like the ad shows

How do I replace the shoe breaks for my 2018 Chevy Sonic? Asking mechanics or anyone that’s experienced in replacing those fuckers, is there an order to follow? Do I need certain types of tools?

More info, I can’t get the last small spring to hold the bottom two breaks, I gave up when I couldn’t lock up the two, I’m not sure if I’m sequencing the springs correctly, I hooked the large spring in place securely, it’s that last small spring in the bottom that’s fucking things up.

Automotive engineer here - not quality assurance or some other fake discipline, not a fresh grad, not an intern, not a youtuber reading wikipedia articles out loud, an actual design engineer. I make your car impossible to work on for good reason, though you think it's because I just didn't consider that anything could possibly break. Ask me anything about the industry (I won't say who I work for but it's for a manufacturer of passenger vehicles, not a supplier, and not American).

>>
>>24757590
>When you are considering where to put something, everything is balanced between performance, manufacturing cost, manufacturing speed, and serviceability (both cost and speed), and obviously everything on a car competes for space. Let's take a part that is a carryover from some other previous model, and let's just pretend in this case that the conditions like heat, weather, etc. will not change, imagine the starter in the pic on a Northstar. If the part is super reliable, you can concede repair time for payoffs in packaging, manufacturing, etc.

tl;dr you cut corners to save money. You would fit in great working for Tesla
>>
>>24757647
Yeah, if you can imagine how safety systems work, you have your vehicle which is traveling through space, you have an IMU, wheel speeds, sometimes you may use GPS info, steering angle, you have to figure out the speed the vehicle is traveling, yaw rate, etc. Then you have a radar and/or camera, passing you information with positions and relative velocities of objects, and you are taking control from the driver in certain cases to prevent accidents with all this information. I mostly just copypaste stuff from Stackexchange or from open source college robot projects on github and adjust it from robot speeds to car speeds, so mostly multiplication.

Yes, it would be trivially easy to engineer a $100k Corolla with abysmal performance that nobody would buy, but would be easy to work on. Engineering is meeting specs under constraints. That's the entire job.

you save a fuckton on gas, 21mpg vs 14mpg AND the v6 uses regular gas while the v8 takes premium only.

I drove around DC once and there were signs at every intersection that said when you're allowed to right turn on red (there were different rules for different days of the week as well as different hours of the day). Weird for someone who came from a right turn on red is always legal place.

They had the same signs that said what time you had to stop at pedestrian crossings. I slowed down for a guy on the side of the road once and the car behind me honked at me.
