I have made some sketches of a streamlined three-wheeler. Main focus: affordability and economy. Three-wheeled format has three key functions:
-allows for extremely aerodynamic shape
-allows for cost and weight reduction (notably traction system is simplified - just single rear driven wheel)
-in most jurisdictions three-wheelers are subject to very lax laws; allowing for more design freedom and lower costs (basically dodging all the bullshit laws mainstream manufacturers have lobbied for to prohibit any small manufacturer from entering the regular car market).

It shall provide a comfort and versatility of a car for 2 people and their luggage while being much cheaper to buy than a car and costing a fraction to drive.

As for now, this is just a concept in form of sketches. I have some drawings and proposals for actual internal design but for now I just wanted to mostly share “the looks” and general concept.

Pic rel long wheelbase version, focused more on inter-city driving.

I was thinking mostly K-car engines - should be best for fuel economy and relatively cheap, while reasonably reliable. Something similar from chinks or pajeets could be sourced if one wanted to trade some reliability for price reduction. If it would take off, some dedicated engine could be built.
For electric variant - generic shit from China.

What is this grade actually for?
41 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>26480054
Blending low and high to get mid is "common" in the U.S.
There's only 2 tanks at my neighborhood gas station. Mid grade is blended through the pump.
I'm honestly not sure if this is a new phenomenon with modern gas pumps or if it's locale based. When I was younger in a major city there were 3 inground storage tanks.

very interesting info.
in a 90s ecu-controlled ignition with a distributor wouldnt an engine where the manual calls for 87 just advance the timing until ping is detected when filled with 91?
>>
>>26482027
No.
If it's designed for 87 then it will run at 87 parameters and retard spark If there's a fault (like a carbon deposit causing a hotspot/premature detonation).
And a knock sensor is needed.
Fox body mustangs as an example do not have a knock sensor, even though the EEC-IV architecture they run on has the capability to run a knock sensor.
If it's designed for 93 and has a knock sensor it will retard spark to compensate for 87. But it has to knock first which is not good for the engine.

I did, of course
honestly Ford's parts site is one of the worst websites I have ever used
I finally after hours found a Ford "Field Service Action" bulletin from 1999 about this issue and found the part number since this document contains the advised inspection/repair procedure and lists all the parts and even the torque specs
so I searched that part number and Ford's OWN WEBSITE says it doesn't fit my truck
there are so many versions and numbers for this bullshit retarded part, water oil cooler, stupidest idea and design I've ever heard of
I've run into similar issues before with my other Ford, where the part numbers change every few years and you get lucky on some site that lists part number supercessions

>>26464697
No, first of all if I drive at night I don't go out because I feel "down" because I'm not a faggot. I usually go out because theres not a lot of cars on the motorway and I can really push my car to the limits. But here in the UK it usually sucks to go out driving just for the sake of driving because theres no scenery its just fields or buildings, its really shit here.

I've always thought they were cool but the reveal tonight gassed me up a bit. There are a fair few 2008-2015 Challengers up for not a whole lot of money ($10k-15k, sometimes below). Are they actually worth it/good cars? I've never driven them before since most of my interest is in older stuff.

>harmon/kardon sound system
>4c nav display
Final total with taxes 68,193$ CDN
It’s still cheaper than the widebody with no options whatsoever which comes up to 84,204$ CDN, and I haven’t even started fueling it yet. Flared fenders aren’t worth 12,000$ more, no matter how cool they look (and the standard challenger looks sleek on its own too).

I would love to have been able to afford it but that’s too much for me. I am happy with my R/T. I hope it’s true that it’s easier to mod and tweak.

We've been here before with seatbelt interlocks and after a few rapes and murders that women might have been able to escape from except their car wouldn't start because of the interlock the rule was rescinded. This will fail the same way except that somebody will have to die first, as usual.

Fatal accidents happen even when people are sober. Congress should make a law that all cars can't hit things. You know, with imaginary technology. This solves everything forever.

I have a hyundai elantra 2014 with around 27000 miles on it. Worth around 10-12k. Is it worth it to upgrade to something like a Lexus es350 from 2013 or 2014 with around 100k miles for 20k? Or is it a brainlet move to pay more for an older car with more miles
>>
>>26481781
why not a toyota camry for like 18k from a few years ago?
>>
>>26481783
Prices for those are pretty similar to the Lexus. 2015-2017 camries maybe like 20-30k less miles and better fuel economy. Other than that the Lexus is better in like all ways. Looks better, much quieter, and interior is way better
>>
>>26481781
Can't go wrong either way they are better than a Hyundai
>>
>>26481781
The 2012 ES350 and Avalon were much more reliable than 2013/2014 models.

As the other anom said I would go for a V6 Camry with the lowest mileage your budget can take you.

If you're looking at Lexus' you'll want an XLE Camry. Avoid SE/XSE models as they will have a harsher ride for no real gain in sport/soul.

Stopped right there. Giant SUVs are a status symbol, showing that you give no shits about how wasteful you are because you are successful enough to afford it. It’s also safer all things equal to drive a bigger car, which is how their rational minds justify it. Your suburban woman example is completely retarded. She could choose to drive a used minivan from 10 years ago that is only perhaps slightly less safe because it is not as big. But this person DOES care about appearances. And giant SUV is not her only option, are you actually retarded?

It’s the rare person who does not think about whether or not others regard them as “doing well.”

When are we going to start mandating everyone to carry torque wrenches?

It’s clear that full grown men don’t have the capacity to be responsible when modifying their vehicles, so why not force these people to be adults? some of us have children.

Other than powertrain internals you don't need a torque wrench. And for most powertrain internals you can use a cordless impact. The only time you'll get fucked is transmission internals. Those bitches need to be torqued correctly.

You're probably trolling but you're right. Some modifications need to be made illegal. Cat delete is no big deal for safety, but a big no no. Why shouldn't backyard shit heap builds be treated the same way? Lifted trucks are a complete fucking hazard and should get your truck towed and license suspended though.
