post the most original thing you have done to your car
Say something about it.

I don't have much, but I put the Mirrors Edge logo on my miatas headlight a few years back and I haven't seen it anywhere else before.
The old paint sheme has fallen way out of favour for me, but if I'd ever get an NB again, I'd make sure it was white and had the flying Mirrors Edge bird and it sure as hell is cooler than all the generic anime stickers I see around here.

Not reading the thread. I have a 2016 Canyon and it's delightful. Perfect size for haulan' shit without being retardedly huge. Comfy interior, leather seats, all the modern features you could want, no yota tax. Plus I have yet to see a single other Canyon on the road so you get to feel unique.

Yes, but one is well-crafted and pristine like a luxury car and also comes with a nice uniform you can kill the sub-human slavs in style

The other has literal gaps in the armour plates that were probably cut to shape with an angle grinder and you don’t get to purge slavs in the name of the Furher

At least neither of them are british
>>
>>23889679
The whole point of the thread is one is expensive but reliable, and the other is unreliable but cheap. The Tiger was expensive, hard to maintain and unreliable. The worst combo. At least you didn't pick the Panther D.
>British Tanks
Sigh this meme. The early Churchill, the covenenter and crusader weren't that reliable. Yeah the Church mk1 was a dog. The Mk III was far better by the time they were rolling out later marks problems were resolved. The Covenenter and Crusader's issues were their American liberty engines which the filters were dog shit and not really ideal for the Desert. Rest of the tank was fine. The Matilda's were reliable units, the only issue with the Cromwell was because of the speed it could travel at and lack of track runners, track slap was the main issue. Since the Merit Brown transmissions and RR Meteor engines were immensely reliable. The Comet was reliable and the Centurion which arrived after was immensely good. Thanks to that L60 Leyland multifuel engine pushed by NATO the Chieftain was dogged by issues because of the refusal to ditch that completely wank engine. Rest of the Chieftain was fantastic, just that 1960's Leyland piece of shit ruined it.

Super reliable
That is, or should be, the first priority of any vehicle. It should be more reliable than the bus schedule. If it's unreliable might as well take the bus.

Alright 3s chads, I recently made a thread about my white 3000gt sl with a transmission issue.
Upon further research and testing here's what I have to update you guys with.

When I turn on the car, the transmission shifts between all gears, reverse, neutral, D, 2, and L. Overdrive activates too.
The tachometer isn't working, it doesn't show RPMS.
The car runs well for only like three minutes at a time and sometimes it randomly engages the transmission and runs.

But then after a while it loses all gears including reverse. This has been consistent every single time I start it up. It activates all the gears and then suddenly loses all of them. The car was running perfectly at start up and it felt fast and smooth, shifted smooth and then slowed down when the transmission stopped putting power out to the wheels. It got more responsive when I filled it with Transmission fluid, and yes it does stink.
It is automatic.
It has made some weird loose disc noises.
I will most likely get the transmission performance rebuilt anyways but for right now I want to know what the potential issue is.

>>23890376
Thanks anon.
Anyways, yeah I don't really care about the O2 sensors, they're unimportant.

I just want to know whether I could maintenance this issue myself by draining the transmission fluid, and putting in better transmission fluid.
If that's the case I'll do it soon but If not I won't waste my time and I'll just go ahead and take it to a rebuild shop and ask them to bulletproof my transmission.
>>
>>23890389
I am just going to say there is very little chance that a transmission fluid change will fix it, and if it does it won't be for long.
>>
>>23890389
My bet is something is just worn to pieces, it's possible your fluid could be degraded or there is a blockage of shavings but I doubt it.
>>
>>23890348
Further information, these transmissions were made by getrag, according to some posts in the 3s forums, these trannies were purposely fucked from the start to allow getrag to get more sales on transmissions and mitsubishi themselves omitted information on the transmissions. Apparently better rated transmission fluid allows the transmission to last significantly longer and work better.

It's not that these Transmissions suck. It's that they were purposely stabbed in the back from the very beginning.
>>
>>23890393
>>23890396
Yeah my thoughts exactly.
I want to just be able to drive it far enough to get it to proper maintenance areas such as tire shops and a transmission shop.

But I've also heard these transmissions are unknown to work on, so I don't even know if that'll cut it.
Should I just take it to any transmission shop or should I bite the bullet and sell the car?
Or option C
Get a proper transmission shop to work it for me.

Idk for sure, I never played with the FA to hard, but I could see when switching to E85 you'd have issues with the HPFP, the gasoline lubricates it as well as being pumped, with E you loose that lube. I might pull it down and see how it died.

That was one of my other options, I don't really want to go with the wingless trunk though because I actually track the car and idk how that would play in. Duckbill seems like the best option.

>>

>>
>>23890042
You're not wrong. My car is set up for dirt, so I don't have to deal with the problems of no ride height and hard suspension, but it's still pretty retarded. It's fully gutted, so conversation means shouting unless it's raining or I'm sending it, in which case communication is only possible through punches and hand signals. The ashtray in the dashboard has been removed and the place it used to reside now holds a box of earplugs, which are necessary for longer drives if you don't want your ears to tickle afterwards. Been meaning to get a muffler that actually muffles a bit for a while now, but since my current setup is fine aside from causing hearing damage, the odds of that actually happening instead of more gofast bullshit are... slim.

The cam chop shakes the whole car. No AC. No radio. No cruise, no power windows, no power seats, no power door locks. It's a completely retarded thing to do and only those with the specific flavor of retardation to be fine with all that just to for racecar feels and racecar shenanigans would find it at all enjoyable. Only one normalfag has ever agreed to ride in this car more than once, the rest all swore to never get in it again.
>>
>>23890042
No you're not missing anything. Modding in general reduces drivability and most roads in the US are utter dog shit. At 20 years old, that was fun. In my early 40's, I'd rather buy an M5 and stage 1 or 2 the ECU and be done with it. Take that as you will.

I had a 1997 Integra Type-R that I DD. I used to be in close contact with Geoff at Full Race in the early 2000's who offered to sell me a stage 3, non-AC turbo kit for a super price, so I decided to take the plunge. Ended up going full tilt on the build, with pulling the engine, had the block bored to a 2.0L, closed deck, sleeved, forged internals, head work...everything. T3/T67 turbo with the biggest intercooler I could fit without ruining the stock front bumper and lip or cutting into the radiator support. I gutted the whole rear interior to accommodate a full welded cage. For a time I even used Takata harnesses but for DD those really are not practical at all, but mmmm sure look nice laying over red Recaro seats. The entire suspension was redone with more aggressive bushings and Buddy Club fully adjustable coilovers. The car was an absolute gas hog, I had to wait forever for the engine to warm up everywhere I went, had to run a turbo timer to run the engine cool after getting somewhere, the ride with the coilovers was harsh.

The car pulled like a freight train and made way too much power for its own good, was fun to build but ultimately a huge waste of money and I sort of bastardized a perfectly functional Type R depending on your opinion. A few years later I ended up modifying the cage to get the full rear interior back in the car, sold the gram lights and bought 16" JDM Type-R wheels, would only install the harnesses for track/auto-x days, sold the entire turbo system and parts and put a near full list of Spoon parts in the engine to go full NA to get the drivability back.

I disagree, the late tail lights are too tall. The early models have the same amount of body above and below them, they look much more proportional.
I swapped my front end to plastic but I am going to leave the rear (and paint the shrouds) because it's a very handy footrest when sitting on the trunk.
