I am, but that's not why
HOAs are power hungry faggots with just enough control over people to get their dicks and clits hard.
they're irl jannies
I worked plowing snow for an HOA and the board was silent generation and baby boomers who were retired/disability who spent their time locked in a legal battle with the last board of directors over back dues. 10+ years of back and forth lawsuits over what I later found out was maybe $1,200. One of the former board members ran me off the road while I was driving a 5500 dump truck and I had to be a witness for the state police. Really dumb shit and anyone who puts up with it is probably a commuter who isn't home most of the week. These were all italian people and jews from NYC.
How come snow doesn't rhyme with plow?

I like CVTs. I prefer manuals for adequately powered cars but for a grocery getter with a narrow powerband, CVT is the only option.
If you account for inflation on older cars, prices haven't even increased that much. Yet you get a much safer, more fuel efficient, more powerful, and better built car with a modern vehicle
only if your idea of "better" is less fun.

Can any mechanic autists chime in?
My driveway is quite steep and I've been parking on it for a couple years now, I can only use the normal brakes because my emergency brake is loose or seized.

I heard this fucks up your car because all the force is suspended on some tiny part in the brake.
Am I doing damage to my car doing this??

>How is the Sienna at the bottom supposed to get out?
Like they do in Seattle and New York when cars are parked tightly. The cars back up until they touch the car in back, and then go forward until they touch the car in front. Back and forth until they can get out. This is why some people buy those bumper pads to reduce the amount of bumper scratches.
>Your parking pawl is designed to hold the full weight of the vehicle but you still got several thousand pounds of weight sitting on a metal french fry

The other complication occurs if a different car hits the car using only a parking pawl. During the impact, there is the additional force of the impact upon the parking pawl. That impact from another car trying to parallel park might be enough to make it slip out of the locked position.
Fix your emergency brake.
P only makes the tiny and weak linkage to lock the transmission gearing so it wont rotate. It often snaps if you ever make the mistake and put P on while is car moving. It doesnt use your normal brakes or emergency brake at all.

Park is not a brake. It is a metal pawl that engages with the output shaft. Engaging the parking brake before shifting into park (engaging the pawl) minimizes wear and strain on the pawl, which with abuse could break. This is why it's hard to shift out of park when you park on a hill without using the parking brake first. You should get your parking brake fixed. Saying it is "Loose or seized" shows you do not have a handle on the issue and need to take it to a mechanic.

stupid questions that dont deserve their own thread:

i always buy used tires for 30bucks each. are they supposed to balance them before they put them on? do they just do that really quick while i dont notice? do they need to be on my car to be balanced and aligned?

afaik they have always just pulled my old tire off, slap the new one on the rim and then dunk it in water to see if it leaks.

ive had a thud thud thud forever, i changed my wheel bearings and got four new (used) tires

The ones on mine are 220nm, and usually they range from 200 to 250, all depending on the weight of whats lifted

I dunno, where are you and what are you looking for? A "driving" beam, a spotlight, pure flood? Do they need to be legal for road-use in Europe?

I deal with vehicle lighting A LOT and have my own company selling & mounting lights so this is one of the things I know a good deal about

Oil burning is never really fixable with chemicals or cleaning, its a common sign of worn piston rings that will need to be replaced to rectify the issue. You could try running a thicker oil, but for straight up burning its usually not effective

Yeah, if those things are easily replaceable and you find parts that fit and are rated for the load & RPM you're going for

Why hasnt there been development into a solenoid v8 for a car rather than using electric motors? Motors need continuous power and large battery banks for range, but a solenoid engine might only need half the battery capacity and just run from capacitor banks instead. Not to mention its easier to retrofit an older car with a conventional styled solenoid engine than to adapt motorhubs

okay faggot just put a shoe on one of the damn wheels
whats stopping me from converting a two stroke single cylinder into a big ass solenoid with an equivalent 'piston' size and run the crank that way to test the concept.
Because solenoids are bulky, relatively complicated to control and inefficient as fuck. Any chinesium 3-phase motor will be smaller, cheaper, better and more efficient.
That's wrong though. Total energy input will be the same for a given output, adjusted for the drive train efficiency. You can run any electric device off capacitors if you want, you'll just run out of juice from only capacitor banks due to low energy density. Even faster with the inefficient motor you're suggr0ppw

Also why are 996 Turbos so cheap? I thought it was some kind of classic and they're sold for less than a niggered R32 GT-R. I didn't want one originally because it looks too fast and too expensive but should I buy it as an investment?

Keep on saving, 997 has flattened in price if not declined a bit.
If they're cast they're probably all the same. Casting moulds are stupid expensive

None. If you're not going to use it outside of the track, any road car is a bad choice both financially and performance wise.
Get a purpose built track car like a Rush SR or something cheap from Factory Five. Maybe a Superlite if you plan to save extra cash for more performance.

How soon before charging stations accept EBT? Between government credits for EVs and brown peoples affinity for welfare, I suspect charging stations will become a lot more diversified (and that's a good thing).
By the next infrastructure bill after the current one fails to help the economy.

Enjoy your useless batteries
This was the concern when fast charging was new. Now 10 years alter studies of cars that fast charged frequently vs didn't fast charge doesn't show any significant difference after the same number of miles.

What is the final solution to the tailgater question?
303 replies and 39 images omitted. Click here to view.
They wouldn't have to tailgate you if you just moved the fuck over. It's not about you. It's about getting past you. But you like the attention or something.
Your final solution isn't a solution because it's not going to work you fucking piece of shit retard holy shit suck a tailpipe.
Two people before have pulled to the side and let me get ahead because they know they're going slow as fuck.

I always at least thank them by flashing my hazards
alright, real story time. I didn't do it on purpose either but coming home from work some 12 years ago I had a tailgater and it kind of happened.
it's not that I "jerked" to the left or whatever, but I saw the whole thing in my rear view mirror and yes, carnage was present.
I'm driving a merc 190E at max legal speed and this fucker comes up to me from a far away, no idea what type of car but he brakes at the last moment. I just keep driving as I was. fucker obviously gets bored and starts messing with his radio.
then (pic related) he hits the cars parked on the right. pretty sure the yellow pillars weren't there at the time.
all I remember is seeing a whole lot of car debris flying in my rear view mirror.
and yes that is the inspiration for the post.

I'll have another story coming right up, because it was tried on me once when I was tailgating...
my country is retarded an pulls this shit for a cycling lane.
fucker in front of me nearly avoids a cyclist, and so did I.

On the contrary. Usually all you need to make an otherwise unmodified vehicle look better are different wheels and tires. What else would you do in terms of visual mods anyway? Are you gonna drive around with a racing wing on an otherwise stock car? Are you gonna drive around with a primered bodykit for a year until you can afford the paintjob?

Just saw a video about load cell pedals where the guy compared two pedals and as a negative point for one he said that the pedal bottoms out and you have to brake by pressure. Isn't that the whole point? If you just want a harder time pressing the pedal, why not just put in a heavier spring and call it a day?

Brits and Scandis will
i never used a brake cell, but it seems logical that if you want to emulate the behavior of a hydraulic system, using a device that directly measures hydraulic pressure (generated by your foot) in some small device sounds more reasonable than using a potentiometer pulled out of old radio to measure pedal position and then hope that position at the given moment is directly 100% tied to pressure you generate. i'm as much against gearfaggotry as the next guy, but i can see the logic here

get a shitbox daily, then buy an SA22 instead
Behold, the $16,800 50k mile FD!

The RX-8 chassis is very well designed and if you bought a blown one and put a single turbo REW in it, you'll have something pretty crazy.

Also much better interior than the FD if you care about that kind of stuff and much more livable.
All rusted away around here
Decent condition chasis with a grenaded or low compression renesis can be had for peanuts, I've even heard of people getting them free.
Renesis rebuild and porting plus top-shelf corner and apex seals is actually not expensive to do, at least where I live.
LPG kits are a tried-and-tested way to fix the horrible gas mileage and actually deals with many of it's issues.
For under 5-6k euros it's a god-tier chasis with decent power that can actually be driven daily, my brother in law did exactly that and I'm jealous and currently looking for one to do the same.
