Why don’t more police departments use Dodge Chargers instead of mom ford explorers for their police cruisers?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The media's answer from a lot of police chief interviews around my area are that the Exploders have more space to fit the insane amount of gear cops now have to carry, and are so easy to get in an out of, you know. It's basically a quality of life thing for cops whose main job is getting in and out of the vehicle, and living in the damn thing for half the day. The officers just prefer using an SUV than a sedan.
This anon gets it. Also apparently somr chargers are just in and out of the workshop constantly.
quality of life for how much shit they have like >>23471749 said
and if they can put a turbo in it, they can edge out more power if they needed it to either match the charger or at least get up to similar performance
Two reasons:
The explorers are more liked for their interior space in the front seats. Cops pretty much live in these fuckers for 8 hours a day.
The Chargers are much more maintenance heavy for the department. It's why only highway patrol/staties/rural PDs bother to drive them.
Small town PD here is entirely Chargers and a couple older Tahoes.

its pretty bad in LA where im at as well
from what my friend who moved to LA tells me you probably have it worse.
Very rarely unless something urgent is happening. I only quickly mess with it for music and that's about it.
central LA is horrid

but the upper areas of town arent so bad
Only on long stretches of highway. I feel like 99% of "anti texters" are city slickers and don't know what it's like to drive 2-3 hours straight on a mostly empty mostly straight interstate. It's super easy to multitask. Doing it in the city or in traffic is a bad idea though.

OP generally if you chop resonator you don't want to touch muffler. same thing other way around, if you cut mufflers leave the resonator. mustangs are pretty good at being drone free with a resonator delete into H-pipe idk about challengers. resonator delete is usually at fault for drone.

Yeah so I cut both the resonators and mid mufflers. Setup I'm thinking is

>stock cats
>H-pipe: 2.25"
>Khaos Mid muffler delete kit: 2.25"
>Blastin Bob's glasspack tailpipe: 2.5"

Really hoping the Glasspacks will lessen the drone. Although the opening diameter is the same as the straight pipe/resonator delete pipe

What went wrong?
11 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
It’s the German autism, Seat has always been a burden for VW because they marketed them as low cost Volkswagen with often shit looks (imagine making a worse and more boring Volkswagen clone like the Seat Exeo), the same was true for Skoda but at least in the last years they managed to make Skoda way nicer with good quality while Seat was just edgy and nerfed each time the Golf sales were hurt even a little.

For the Spanish Alfa Romeo bit, well, you need to ask them what they exactly meant with that. Probably the Germans thought that by rebadging the Golf with Seat badge would produce the same result as “rebadging” say a Tipo as an Alfa Romeo 145...despite all the differences and the boxer engines
These are also recent articles, the whole Seat = Alfa Romeo goes way back.

I owned a 2012 Ibiza FR coupe for 4 years, with the 1.2 TSI. It was a brilliant car, I loved it, although the interior was dirt cheap (I was ok with that since the car costed me peanuts for what it packed) the engine and the steering were very good even though not Alfa Romeo Mito good. So at least the Ibiza coupe was a true contender to the Mito, but in an Alfa Romeo optics it was the only contender, because the Giulietta was another thing if compared to the Leon (not talking of the Cupra here) and since they’re the same car even the Golf GTI that was destroyed by the Giulietta QV.
if you look at the B segment, just for reference, in the VAG catalog, you get;
>Skoda Fabia 17.500
>Seat Ibiza 16.300
>VW Polo 17.500
>Audi A2 18.800

That's looking at the lowest of trims. I just don't get how you fuck up so hard.

QA for Seat is way lower too, but the engines are still VW technology. Maybe they could try to make Cupra the "Spanish alfa romeo" but Cupra does not have the same racing history, hell it has no racing history, as Alfa Romeo. It's just such a dumb strategy. I guess you are right about German autism.

>be vag
>buy car brand
>car brand makes money
>get angry and kill them
If you look back you can find things such as the Seat Ibiza Porsche system that tells you VW tried boosting this brand to a Sporty conception by using their top brands without a solid logic, then they resorted rebadging VW models and that infamous ugly A4 when they made a kind of Dacia style operation.
Seat also had some racing heritage with rally and touring cars, but everything goes to the shitter if they keep pushing the whole VW lineup as rebadged Seat models with worse interiors.

The real question is why they didn’t at this point merge Seat and Skoda but my guess is that once the EV bullshit goes fully on stage we will see both Seat and Skoda cars with even more character.

With that said, the Cupra brand is even worse and makes less sense than DS.

STi and Golf R as they actually put power to the rear wheels. Also
Type R doesn't sound like it should. Veloster N sounds like a rowdy motherfucker and it will make you grin with its pops and bangs
The most fun is probably the Fiesta St or Focus RS if you can afford them. I also really enjoy my Abarth, but it's not fast by any means, so if you're definition of fun is straight line performance you should stay away from it.

and this moose test test's the "great traction control dumbo
I was taught to "Stay in your lane, don't swerve." Why? Because there's no guarantee that there's no on coming car. Pair that with insurance where crashing into an animal while staying in your lane is considered an act of God (and won't raise my insurance), while swerving is legally considered reckless driving, I'm better of staying in my lane
poorfags in 30 year old shitboxes know that staying in your lane and driving into a Moose is certain death
True, I grew up in a rural area and I was taught to always stay in your lane and hit the deer or whatever animal is in front of you because if you swerve you will end up in the freezing cold river on one side or crash into the mountain on the other side
When they let the NA team have way more input than they should, it's the reason why it failed the moose test just like the Jeep Grand Cherokee did

Hey /o/rators, I have always bought beaters that I kept them limping along till they stopped moving (I can do a lot of basic preventative maintenance stuff and body panel replacement, self taught) but I want to treat myself to something fun that has 4 doors, preferably AWD but I could take or leave that

from everything I looked through, the BMW M340i looks like a winner (I have never driven/owned a BMW), would you get that for 65k with some options and the color you want? or what would you get with 65k as a budget?

I've put a lot of thought into getting a Type R or an SI and tricking it out, my current DD is a honda (first one) and it has been rock solid, but it has a lot of miles on the auto tranny so I am expecting it to have problems in the future that I can't fix that wouldn't be worth the cost of the repair. If I were to start throwing mods on something I would want a second car to get around, thankfully I work remotely so I don't need to drive for work

the Type R with the front LSD is really tempting even if it is "loud" with its styling
Just dropping it here.
Stinger Gt/ G70 for half the price.
I have a current gen 1.5t and it's great bang for buck but IDK if I'd go for a Type R, maybe for a trackday experience or something. But to be fair it's over 42k euros here and that's kinda steep for a Fwd car IMO even if the Type-R has the dark magic diff

Personally I'm banking on the RWD Mazda 6 right now. IF I were to get a BMW I'd probably get the e92 M3, but I'm worried about maintenance costs. 1M would be a dream but that's too pricey
G70 msrp $47k
M340i msrp $54k

From what I understand, clutch type LSD's are prone to overheating and basically turn into open diffs when they get too hot. So if you're drifting that's a big no no. Quaife, Wavetrac, and Cusco all make solid diffs. A lot of Honda guys use KAAZ LSD's but I'd be weary of use one if you're putting down good power.
Good stuff. Also good call on double and triple checking... I've read a lot about people who had to take apart and put back together their out of box diff because it comes packaged with things upside down
A clutch type LSD is going to perform much better in a performance application because it's more sensitive towards throttle and brake inputs, and you can determine the locking characteristics by changing the ramp angle for acceleration/deceleration, set preload and locking percentage. If you use good quality clutchplates and keep up on oil changes it's also going to last even under heavy usage. If temps become a problem you can still use an external oil cooler.

I know that video, it's pretty good.
I'm right between that, I don't intend to quote on quote drift but my last car was set up so loose that under load it was sideways (in a extremely shallow angle of attack thou) all the time. I liked that a lot because it just never understeered and I prefer fun to the competitive edge where you'd want a more neutral setup. viscous sounds spongy and less easily predictable to me so I'm leaning more towards geared units.
I'd strongly recommend doing some more research on how different LSD types can effect a cars handling before putting so much money into it.

I know it's from a BMW forum but the infos there apply across the board and are extremely insightful.
