Car driver is making a retarded turn blindly with no preparation if there's anyone coming from behind the vehicle he can't see through. Cyclist is riding across a driveway blindly without taking precautions for someone coming behind the vehicle he can't see through into the hole that's being intentionally left. Also he's not wearing a helmet.
This. Perhaps the driver of the POV car could've honked. But no single person is at fault here.
It's not a road, it's a driveway.

Dont fuck with suspension unless you really know what you are doing and understand the tradeoffs that come with more specialized vehicles.

That being said, rebuilding suspension to spec on an older car will restore most of the original performance.

Why does Hollywood and the mainstream media hate Tesla?

Which book says it was the Jews?
this, mostly: >>25930421
It's not so simple though, it also involves "deep-state" stuff; i.e. power struggles over technology.

they used to love Tesla because it was spitting in the face of big auto, proving a long held mantra that building a consumer electric car was always possible, they just didn't want to do it because they're evil greedy fat capitalists.

Guess those weren't the underpinning of their supposed viewpoints after all, since Tesla is basically the most mainstream EV ever at this point, way more than any EV offered by big auto.
>Why does Hollywood and the mainstream media hate Tesla?

Because the democrats and Biden want him to fail for not doing their bidding as well as unionizing all his companies. They also want him to hire using equity and not equality.
No they didn't. Tesla was only offered as a cute alternative system when it had very little chance of success. Once the Model 3 broke grounds, California tried to shutdown the company in the name of covid, while the company was still trying to ramp up Model 3 productions and losing billions during the time. Like shutting down 3-4 months of your only factory while the rest of the world/us's auto factories were still operational, is just plain evil. The 3-4 month factory shutdown led to loss of ~6-8 months of productivity time for Tesla since they have to slowly ramp back up their production rates.

>Why didn't Nissan sell the Skyline in LHD Markets?

Mazda, Toyota, and Honda All released their Halo cars in LHD but why didn't Nissan?

300ZX was alright but it doesn't match the GTRs.

They just HAD to put it in gran turismo 4 and I HAD to like it.

On the other hand I could have gotten a lancer evo 9 and be happy too.
It was your dogshit emission laws and tariffs that kept them away. Also allowing Mercedes USA to rally congress for the 25 year import law so that they could keep making inferior versions of their Kraut counterparts at the same cost.
They're are LHD Syklines. The Z, Supra, RX-7, all stopped being sold in the US due to low sales, the RX-7 started at $38k and the Supra turbo started at $50k. I'd wager that a more expensive vehicle would sell even less.
its honestly insane to me that mercedes usa is allowed to operate. and that people keep buying from them
Z32 was the halo car, they were priced very similar at launch (both ~4.5 million JPY)

At the time american market luxurious GTs were prestigious, if you had one in Japan you must be doing well for yourself. Supra, GTO were very GT cars. Even NSX was kind of GT outside of the Type R. The FD was more GT compared to FC.

GTR is for performance freaks - not the general public it had much smaller target audience.

Over time the GTRs performance (and Z32s age) made it more of the halo car. But by the time of R33 and R34 skyline volumes were much lower and nissan was too busy going bankrupt to launch anything.

Toyota has been testing the G16E-GTS engine from the GR Corolla in the GR86
> 300hp
> 273 lb.-ft. of torque

The price gap between the GR86 Premium Trim
> $30.3k
And the cheapest Supra [the Turbo 2.0 litre]
> $43.5k
That leaves a price gap of
> $30.3k
Meaning the GR86 with the G16E-GTS could be somewhere between $31k & $42k

So if they actually did this

>He thinks FA engines have headgasket issues
Outdated info my guy. Those are EJs. These engines are limited by rods for low end torque, and oil pressure at high rpm. New oem rods should be a *little* better but 350-400whp is where I'd estimate these will sit with forced induction and an unopened engine. Interested to see how the clutch and tranny hold up though.

Only owner I've seen mention their circumstances for engine failure (oil starvation) was a guy tracking a stock engine on a brutal circuit for seriously long periods without even changing the oil once since he bought it. 7000kms oil with heavy track use won't hold up especially without an oil cooler. 5w-30 would have been a better choice too.

If you wanted to make a powerful and reliable fa24 GR86 you'd go forged rods, potentially some sort of oil accumulator system but at least an oil cooler, injectors, e85 + clutch. Can easily see it making 500whp. Transmission might not be reliable though.

If you want a V8 86 definitely go for a GT86/FRS shell instead. Way cheaper and you won't feel bad for chopping it up. Plus there's already plenty of info on those swaps.
Personally I was really into this idea at first but after driving the GR86 I like the low down torque of the 2.4L. flex fuel will round this car out like a F6 rounds out a Porsche. Would definitely put down just as well if not much better than a stock S15. If there was a significant price hike you'd probably be better off with a centrifugal supercharger kit for the 2.4L anyway. Good power delivery everywhere.
Whoops that was the old car's power graph. Here's a deep fried graph on the new car
There's a turbo VR6 Arteon out there with the Mk7 Golf R's rear diff.

Do road pavers and American automakers have some kind of deal going? Pavers do a shit job paving roads so they'll freeze-thaw and generally wear out over time, so that automakers can have a selling point for their cuckovers (higher ground clearance?)
new orleans lousiana has the worst roads i have ever seen.

sections of streets missing, and then you come back years later and the section is still missing. like they started construction and then just stopped halfway through. even stretches of a few main roads were missing for years.

they say you know someone there is drunk when they drive straight
can you not sue them then?

I make 105k a year before taxes. No debt aside from my mortgage which is 1200/month. What car would you buy if you were me? Currently looking at

Mustang Mach1 - new w/handling package is 60k
Camaro SS 1LE - new is about 50k
GR86 - 32k

My fear with the Camaro and Mustang is that the consumables are so highly priced that I'm gonna become a slave to my car if I track them and the Mustang is like twice the price of the GR86

All of these are....horrible choices. Im sorry if this is you. Converting a van or bus? Where do you park? Imagine the smell. Fuck.
Get the mustang. Looks great and it’s fast. Complete car.
your alternatives amount to being a petty criminal/vagabond
>Mach 1 will hold its value the longest.
Why? There's already a new stang generation on the way. The Camaro is the last of its kind. The GR86 is significantly cheaper so I doubt any depreciation will hurt anyway. Not that you'd see any serious depreciation over the next 2 years regardless.
Got any recommendations?

My apologies, “struggles to get to 110 km/h” was the exact term
But it does 110 easy enough, it struggles above 135-140.
I drive an Electric Yellow Jimny on BFG K02's and can say get a Jeep. Its too small, so slow, and a pig to drive. the novelty wears off fast.

Too slow for modern americans. Most people can't cope with doing sub 80+mph on the freeway.
