Gentlemen, a short view back to the past. Thirty years ago, Niki Lauda told us ‘take a monkey, place him into the cockpit and he is able to drive the car.’ Thirty years later, Sebastian told us ‘I had to start my car like a computer, it’s very complicated.’ And Nico Rosberg said that during the race – I don’t remember what race - he pressed the wrong button on the wheel. Question for you both: is Formula One driving today too complicated with twenty and more buttons on the wheel, are you too much under effort, under pressure? What are your wishes for the future concerning the technical programme during the race? Less buttons, more? Or less and more communication with your engineers?

GUESS the car based on the quirks and the features. (You think too small!)

>Thermostat-style AC
>Seat Memory
>Heated Seats
>Door relocks after five minutes if unlocked and the car is off
>Trunk button lockout in the glove compartment for some reason
>plastic cover over the cabin air filter. You either cut through it or... remove the entire dash. I cut through it.
>Asymmetrical side mirrors
>One windshield-wiper instead of two
>Small useless sun-visor on top of the rear view mirror
>When you open the door there is a "fasten your seat-belt light" that flashes few times.
>Car has 4 air-vents 2 in the middle and one on each side, cool air only comes from the middle ones and hot air only on the side ones
>There is a button to lower the headrests of rear seats (For what purpose?)
>There is a "missing" tail light bulb in the passenger's side
>You can open the hood all the way up but only if you fuck around with small thinges requiring you to walk around the other side of the car at least once to get both of them in the open position
>Pneumatic central locking system that is guaranteed to fuck up sometimes.

does motorcycle count?
If you've been trying to learn to drive a manual for two years, can't do it and want to know why: It's because you're stupid. A man has to know his limits.

Long haul in MT is virtually no different than AT. It's short but heavy commute traffic that makes the difference.
i can, just dont own one
that will change soon tho
I learned in a car with a fucked up master clutch cylinder, had like 3 cm of play on the clutch. You'll be fine.

>crank engine while adding oil
How low is your car that you need ramps to change your oil?
This. Plus, the mechanic buys his oil in bulk. By the time I pay for my own, it isn't worth jacking up my car to change my oil. I've done it, but after thinking about it a bit; quickly found it pointless
I just leave my car at the dealership and go to work since the dealership is downtown relatively close to my office. Saves me at least $18 in parking.
First decent answer I have seen in an oil thread. But you still face the monkey problem.

I want an oldschool Japanese turbodiesel 4x4 for offroading + camping in. Should I get a 1992 Mitsubishi Delica L300 (next pic) with a 2.6L intercooled 4D56 or a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (pic related) with a 2.4L non-intercooled 2L-T (to which I will probably have to add an intercooler)? I will also be driving in the winter, so in both cases I'd need to worry about a block heater and something to protect against rust. I think I can get such a Delica for around $5-7k and the Cruiser for around $6-8k.

Yeah the point I was getting at is 1HZ's can't reliably make enough power to bother their cranks for the same reason L's don't, ~22:1 with weak pistons mean even making 50% more than standard which is barely more than a 1HD they're well on their way to blowby town. Having said that, sure you can shock a 1HZ crank to death within the first few days of operation before the pistons give up with a tard tune.
I remember the 1HD's as factory built had shit bearings and lots of people got them changed under warranty but they're generally ok once theyve got aftermarket bearings and the FT never really suffered the same problem despite making more power. DESU I can't even remember the last time I dynoed a 1HD-T or FT which had less than 400k on the clock, people that own them have a lot of love for them.

I am from russia so the mileage is not very relevant here as people always mess with odometers. A friend had his kzn185 Surf with real 100k km mileage and drove for 6 or 7 years and somewhere at 250 - 300k the turbine gave up and shitted up everything with oil. And i know damn well he babied his car. Overall buying used 1kz from the man you don't know is a big gamble with chances not looking good.
Same engine yes, same tune, no. The Prado's on average make about 40nm more on the dyno but with not a lot more peak power so they end up with a pretty humpy torque curve.
Same deal with the 1KD, same turbo even but they're rated at least 50nm higher depending on the year and the VNT stop position on the turbo is tighter.
>Yeah the point I was getting at is 1HZ's can't reliably make enough power to bother their cranks
Yeah, that's fair enough. Combustion temperature usually gets in the way before combustion pressure to be an issue.
Isn't that an HZJ77 though? I thought the 3.0 litre Prado would have the same headlights as the 2.4 litre Prado??
