Slipping the clutch is absolutely necessary to start moving from a stop. The engine is spinning and the wheels are not spinning, something has to slip.
just keep it stock and drive it instead of spending any of the few hours there are in a day fucking around with stuff that does not matter. Look up a mountain peak you have never been to before and fucking go there
>adjusted my clutch pedal last week
i felt like a wrenching god
Fun does not also have to include super bad road noise
noise is a part of the feedback. you sound like a pansy.

Turns out all you need to know is basic shit like dont stab the fucking brake midturn and then you can drive irl by just feeling out the car

Trying to maximize speed on some janky 30yo tyre model on some janky 20yo game wont help you any more than playing nfs underground on a pad

Buy the cru2
you can learn a lot since there are many different things and knowledge for inside your mind as well
the control and outcome doesn't transfer 1:1 and when you drive irl you should probably just start at 0 and go through everything if it turns out you have an edge and can quickly learn an aspect great take it and move on to the next etc

How come burgers never got these unlike with the VW vans?
I imagine the VWs were built in the NAFTA region while the Mercs were subject to Chicken Tax.
Probably because Mercedes was positioned way more in the luxury field in Burgerland while in Europe they were also used for taxis and sort of poverty spec family sedans.
They probably didn't want to tarnish their ~~~luxury~~~image over there with transporters.
VW vans were never built in North America. Also the chicken tax is a meme anyway.

>put a single useless seat in the back of a cargo van
>bingo, it's no longer a cargo van and no tax
I used to see one of those in my city, it was like a pea soup green color. It must have been a gray market one from the 80s and it was a panel van, not a passenger one like the OP pic.

Why do cars have handbrakes on the far side from the driver? It's uncomfortable and doesn't give you enough leverage.
The majority of the world is LHD anyway, it just doesn't make sense for this to keep going on.

Because if it's directly behind the shifter there's less space for a storage compartment, something most new car buyers use more than the handbrake.

Never been an issue in my slowbaru. If anything I like it better just a hair further away as it's a pretty skinny center console anyway. It's a more natural motion to have my arm out a little rather than right alongside me, especially with how tall my seat bolstering is.

I'm considering a 4 door upscale sedan. I don't really like where BMW is going, style wise, so I'm leaning towards MB.

Yes I'm a badge whore.

Looking at used C Class vs used CLA.

Open to other stylish 4 door options as well.

I haven't seen alot of brands use the phrase "upscale sedan" to describe their wares. But I have seen it on a CarMax ad.
What defines a sports car?
Being a track-orientend performance vehicle that sacrifices comfort for handling and speed?
If that's the case, Megane is a sports car.

Note that i'm only asking you about this for amusement, considering you're factually wrong with no room to argue.
c class all the way, assuming you go for one with decent options, because the base one looks just terrible

Anyone here own a k10 micra?
Anything to know about it? Looking at a 1l model as a daily/side cheap project car if I like it enough
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
K-series micras were built all over the place and the non jap assembled ones are shit
i had a slightly older model micra, light weight, reliable engine, good visibility all round, very flimsy with no safety features tho
I used to have one, a 1991 facelift UK Model. Bought it as my first car in 2017 (used much newer company and family vehicles until that point so wanted something boxy and older/weirder when I changed jobs). Was a lot of fun in the right acenario and extremely light of course.

I Had the 1l manual transmission auto choke version. In its stock power 25+ year old state it was almost dangerously slow though, trying to deal with other drivers and still move into the fast lane to take the correct turning at a roundabout made me get rid of it pretty much. Only major issue when I owned it was that the fuel pump failed which is very easy to change yourself in this car. It's also rather loud. I recently saw the new owner has further modified it and is still dailying it. They seem pretty bulletproof.

I also never had to top up the oil, but I only drove it 8-10k miles a year.
We used to have two, great little cars. Beware of rust. I really wish to get one just for the nostalgia, but there are none in my country.

okay so I wanted to build an "overlander rig". I wanted it for winter driving, so I wanted a petrol, I wanted a manual, and I wanted something boxy. Found out about old isuzu troopers and loved them, but I only found one in my area. I ended up spending $3k on it despite the rust. Thought I could just take out the fender panels and replace them and it would be okay, but now I'm realizing that fixing the rust will be a never ending project, so I don't want to invest money in building it up (bumper, winch, lift, tires, etc) like I was going to anymore. Or at least before I spend any money, I want to put it back on the market and see if I can get my money back. Engine runs great for its age (except fan clutch is seized), breaks work (except E-brake wire is gone), it's basically a functional vehicle. I'm going to fix the fan by adding an electric fan and fix the e-brake with a wire from another vehicle. What else should I do to make this vehicle desirable enough that I can sell it and get even 60% of my money back? I'll make sure the engine runs perfect, but should I be fixing any of the aesthetic stuff? I can get front fender panels in the same color for $70 each (but maybe $50).

I forgot to mention,
it's a 1989 Isuzu Trooper with a 2.8L V6 chevy engine and 5speed manual transmission. It's super fun to drive, but it's loud as fuck and revs pretty high.
Is it like just annoying rusty or like "going to fall in half in the desert somewhere" rusty?

I wouldn't give a shit about fixing aesthetic issues personally. Overlanders get beat up anyway.

If you put a winch and tires and whatever else you want on it and the truck rusts to death you can always take the parts off and use them on something else.

>they can build a competitive FWD car then nobody can. The Audi A3 is FWD architecture and its still a brilliant little car.
Honda's good FWD cars are light. Acura hasn't had a light car since 2006.
The A3 is not a brilliant car compared to an Integra.
>Acura hasn't had a light car since 2006.
It's not really that they won't, it's more that regulation and "muh luxury" doesn't allow them to. They have to have the same features Lexus, BMW and Mercedes have because they want to be in the same playing field... so there's added weight and safety that the average luxury purchaser would expect.
The one thing that does piss me off is that Honda is still stuck in its ways in never giving any car more than 300-odd hp despite obviously being capable of doing it. There are turbo'd J-series cars on the internet, that are turbo'd without much fuss or risk. What's stopping Honda? I wish I knew.
Pre 00s Hondas were good looking. Early 00s Acuras were ok. I have nothing against them mechanically wise. It's just that I have yet to see a Honda or an Acura that makes me think "wow, that's a nice looking car".
You don't need 300hp ffs.
I've had 2 cars over 300hp and my 110 hp car was my favorite.
Lightweight > all.
This actually happened to me. About four months after buying a CL type S I finally saw another one driving past me on the other side of the road. I caught up to it, honked a bit then rolled up next to it.
I was met with two stone-cold-ass black motherfuckers who don't look like they've said a word since they were twelve. I complimented their car, made a jesture that I too owned one and they just kept staring at me.

Two months later I caught one driving into a small local grocery store we have in the city. I drove up next to him and was met with a jolly old boomer bloke who I spoke with for about an hour about our cars. Took eachother's phone number and he asked if I could track him down a spoiler because he didn't have one.

Yeah but the turbo ones don't have those issues. Only when they're poorly modded.
They especially have those problems
Not true at all.
I've been a NASIOC poster since 2006, had an STi for 6 years (zero issues even though I turned boost up 50%).
The N/A ones are the ones prone to those issues.
The early 5-speed WRXs had shitty transmissions.
No they don't because they didn't use the old composite head gasket material in the ej25 SOHC naturally aspirated model.

It's only rated for 9mm or some shit if i remember the reveal correctly.
We carry service weapons to shoot out the windows and enter the crushed vehicle. If you have bulletproof windows that's when we have to hit your car really hard with the ambulance and hope it breaks open sk we can get to you.

Yes, they do. Have you been living under a rock since 1961?
it's not going to be "rated" for anything. there will never be a NIJ test done to certify the cyber truck's body panels for protection against any firearm.

MRR F6180 forged. The oe wheels are pig heavy, I'm just storing them in my garage. If I sell the car they will be crisp with good rubber.

Don't know anyone with one and meeting them in the wild I assume they are cops as all dodge guys seem mod towards looking more like cops. Would love to race one or a regular hellcat though
>MRR F6180 forged
neat, square stance or staggered?

i'll probably end up using the pp1 rims for winter tires since that still means 4-5 months of usage here.
My ranger was the same. Just ram it in there
Yeah if I didn't have another set with extreme contact dws6 for winter I'd do the same.
Wanted square but they are 10s with 275 up front and 11in with 295 rears. Slightly wider than stock but shorter. Got them new with ps4's for less than a lot of flow form sets so it was a deal I couldn't pass on.
