im trying to sell a truck with de-laminating 14in tires
they dont make that size so a set of four new tires is $400
could i buy a set of four used 15in tires on 15in rims for cheaper?
pick n pull tires are $20ea, how much would a ghetto tire shop charge to install, how do i dispose of old tires?
or knock $400 off the price and tell them lets not go on the highway during the test drive....

backlash, my bad

Pinion teeth condition, very deeply pitted, however barely broken in. I would expect way more damage considering how badly these bearings were installed.
gb2reddit, this is car board
you need a new gearset to go with your master overhaul kit. sorry.
Rust issues? On a bronco? Nonsense!

I got an 88. Kick panels rotted, floor on drivers ide, and two spots in the rear by the tail gait which was also rotted... Also the inner fenders were fucked as well as where they get spot welded.

Over covid I've been slamming away at it though. All fixed just gotta hang the quarters and inner fender wells. I can't wait for it to be over man

100+hp is pretty easy out of 96 and 103. The 88 takes more work and the 110 is over that from factory. That doesn't include the M8 line and all the potential it has.

>implying I'm not riding between shitposting sessions

Hell, half the reason I took a day or two hiatus was because I was ripping up a new local road I found.

I'm just tired of new riders being misinformed and putting the supersports on a pedestal when all experienced riders know they're just not that good for the street and most of the things better about them only matter when trying to race in a very specific rule set. The non-homologated street sport bikes are actually designed for the situations you encounter on the street.
Nah both are commuter shit and both are slow. Why do you consider faster to be better anyway if you have such a seething hatred for people having fun on their supersports?
I think I'd be more put off by riding if I jumped on a 600 and had to fight it every step of the way to get it moving with my wrists on fire and my dick turned inside out from the rock hard seat and suspension. I'm not saying other bikes don't have their place, I've said 1000 times a supersport is what you want on the track no question if it's a dedicated track bike, but for a catch-all does-everything-well-bike, the 650 is not just some lame "le beginner bike", it's just a damn good bike. I can't ride anything else without quickly being annoyed by the ergos (supersports or cruisers for opposite reasons), lack of power (actual beginner bikes, though 400~500 can still be fun because they're usually so light and you don't need any reserve when ripping the throttle), too heavy (most non-supersport liter bikes), etc. Like Ryan from Fortnine perfectly put it, it's the Goldilocks engine: just enough power to almost pull the front tire off the ground but not quite so much you have to walk a line between going fast and flipping it, but also dead reliable, economical, and the powerband is so wide you don't have to row the box to keep it moving. It may not be a "passionate" choice as some people like bikes that "scare" them or are just hard parker LARPers that NEED to have the big cc bike or whatever to feel special, but if you just want to ride and want to be able to ride pretty much everywhere doing just about anything, it's the bike to do it with. I think I'd sooner go for a street oriented ADV bike before I'd go into a more purpose-built supersport for street use, there's just too many compromises for advantages that don't exist on the street. I think 650s are just getting that "I hate it because it's too perfect and everyone gets one" problem like the Ninja 400 is in the beginner bike class, but fuck it man, when it's right, it's right, there's really nothing I want more where the tradeoffs wouldn't be enormous.
Faster accelerating, dumbass, not top speed. Acceleration is fun, top speed runs are dumb and boring.

You can go sit in your corner and seethe and have an inferiority complex, but I'm not budging an inch on the FACT that the 650 twin is a damn good engine and the Ninja 650 is a damn good bike and far better for street riding than a SS 600 and in terms of not just being a bucking bronco it's better than a liter peter, too.
No doubt people that have no motorsport or motorcycle experience and hop on a 600 are going to suffer and ride like shit. It really is a passion choice to ride them.
They're good bikes and you're right about everything. It's funny though how the middleweight class for non superbikes is the most well-rounded where as the 600 class is the complete opposite and getting a 1000 is typically the better choice of the two

I see them regularly go for $10k+
$12k is a little on the more expensive side but if it's nice I'd say it's worth it.
Some even sell in the $15-20k range.
Maybe you can talk him down a little bit or just sell the wheels and seats to make some money back.
Can you find anything with the same lug pattern that can fit on it? I mean it’s toyota I’m sure it shares a disk with at least one other model
I found a bunch, what year are you looking for etc
Yeah hell he can keep that stuff, I’ll see what I can do

Real hyped to even find one
Dude the seats are probably worth a pretty penny, get it all if it's included in the price

which one? the diesel i6's seem really fucking good. the s63, particularly before the most recent technical update, was hot fucking garbage. consider watching savagegeese's video on the f10 m5 for the interior and shit
Great engines except the N63 or S63, where all the early ones guzzled oil and blew up. My personal favorites are the diesels.

Hydraulic steering M-Sports are better to drive than the E60, EPS ones are not.

What exactly caused this?

Only the most delusional idiots couldn't see Tesla won around the launch of the model 3 but this was years ago, what has caused the recent increase?
81 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Hamburg to Nuremberg distance is only 600 km. Thats 1 stop charge in between for Tesla. Maybe 2 for competitors. Between LA to New York is 4500 km. That's ~15 stops atleast with 300 km drive per charge.
>But poor people have smartphones and 60” flatscreen TVs.
Both of which now cost a fraction of what they did ten years ago even adjusted for inflation. Same is true for electric cars. Model 3 is less than half the cost of what the Roadster was for the same battery size.
Model 2 (or whatever Tesla call it) won't be as massive a price drop, but it will continue the downward trend of battery size relative to the price of the car.

So you're fairly close with your estimate at least for normal highway speeds. Though given that trip most people are likely to fly, or spend more than one night in a hotel where they can get topped up. Most driving even in the US is less than 50 miles a day on average, and the outliers where people drive farther are still often within the daily range of even a 300 mile EV especially given charging stops for meals.
State to state driving also exists. Seattle to LA is thousand miles or 1800 km. It's much more common travel in the us. Range anxiety is real for non tesla evs, even tesla cars have some range anxiety in common state to state travels.

Even that is 18 hours of driving with two hours of charging. Most people given a drive that long even in a gas car are going to be stopped longer than that anyway. Especially if they make it two days of nine hours each day, which if you stop at a place with an L2 charger you can use reduces the time you need to spend fast charging.

Tesla really has solved long distance driving at least as long as you're not talking cannonball times that can beat ICE. The weakness really is less cross country driving, and more getting around within a region on a day trip. I live in the midwest and its easier for me to plan a trip to California than it is for me to plan a trip to the little town where my wife's parents live.

There is one other exception to that which is peak demand times, and Tesla has worked on some solutions for that like mobile Superchargers, but other brands are way behind on that.

No you didn't you lying fuck the car locks the charger in place until it's done charging, but keep LARPing you internet tough guy I'm sure someone will believe your drivel
Just make sure you put an “eat the rich” sticker on it. People below the poverty line can’t afford EVs. The true car of the proletariat is the rusty ancient shitbox.
Yes, they will continue to be a meme until they can either make batteries that have longer range, charge faster, and don't undo all environmental advantages of electric.
The electric motor will still be the future, not so much the battery.

Why do some countries drive on the left and some countries drive on the right? For those of you who have driven both, do you have a preference?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Do some right hand drive cars have their manual transmission reversed so the first gear is pull in and up?
Do they have reversed radio controls so the volume knob is closer to the driver?
Do they have reversed wipers?
Is the turn signal stalk on the right side of the wheel?
Is the hood/bonnet opener lever at the driver's side?
Do the backseats split at the other side when folding?
I kinda wanna know.
JDM cars have wipers and lights opposite of LHD cars. For the same model if you get a UK market RHD Japanese car the wipers and light controls will be the same as LHD cars you find in the us and Europe. Here in RHD Cyprus there are uk market and a ton of JDM shitboxes so you have to be mindful with rentals/unfamiliar cars as the lights and wiper controls vary a lot. The gas cap and hood lever are always mirrored from LHD.

Shifting and clutch are the same direction, no mirroring there. Seats are the same. They often have market specific radios and infotainment, so I'm not sure.
I like LHD for auto and manual. I like Rhd for column shifters.
Stalks are reversed on RHD to LHD. Everything else is almost the same, cars with more driver focused dashes like Supra for example will face towards driver position. For JDM front seats if you want them to be in your LHD car, you essentially have to swap the seat rails so your seat controls are not hitting the center console. Transmissions are identical except for ones on automatic that have buttons on the sides. Wipers are the same, hoods the same,

>t. Accidentally bought a JDM stalk and now my wipers are my high beams
Interesting. You have sated my curiosity. Thanks.

Its more "look at how trendy I am" but it's nice. I got the wood dash. The seats are fantastic. The idrive and radio are bmw for sure. Doors are nice but made of leather and recycled materials woven together. Clam doors are nice too if you need the little bit of extra room.
Can you put motorcycle tires on it?
Probably. Would handle like shit though.
we had 2 at work, used it a few times. pretty nice for what it is. i only have one question: how can you live with the seats? last trip i had in one i barely made it home and had to take 2 days sick leave because my back got fucked up again. the lumbar support is completely wrong and makes people with existing back problems get worse. im not the only one at work who couldnt drive them.
