Where are the old faggits at? We need to round them up and make them answer for their crimes

Ok guys, thinking about buying a Prostar Maxxforce and deleting DPF , DEF and even the fucking EGR.
Then run that fucker REaver style with an uncontained core and see how much money I can make before the DOT gets me.
Whats the worst that could happen?
At least my odds would be better than lease purchase

I find it to be really fun when I'm a passenger and watch people drive but it also seems really dangerous and a single mistake can be fatal. I don't want to simply get a driving license but to actually be a good driver which seems quite subjective because many people get butt hurt when you don't drive over the speed limit or wait for people to cross.

Lots of bullshit happens. Deer are unpredictable. Squids are squids. Keep looking ahead and adjust your mirrors properly so you can also see behind, and just move accordingly. If someone is trying an overtake, slow down to help them by. Bikes are almost invisible due to the nature of peripheral vision, keep an eye out for one solitary light and just make sure you don't run into them.
Idk where you love but the only time people around me overtake aggressively is if you're going significantly before the speed limit.
It depends. But at the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with pulling off to the side or into a parking lot if you notice there's a huge line of traffic stuck behind you. I've done this from time to time when towing, driving a slow truck through windy roads, during engine trouble, etc. Some roads have pull-offs every so often for this and other related purposes where there aren't proper shoulders.
Thanks for the information but I'm still unsure. Another major problem is vision. Where I live the streets are narrow and most lanes become one sided because there are that many parked cars. I simply have no idea how people do it considering you can't hear the car nor you can see anything through the window considering how short cars are.
Many people love to show off or are exceptionally impulsive.

I catch myself doing this in my Countryman when I looking at lights or to the left or right.
I like the F54. Sadly the interiors will always be ugly as fuck.
How small are they? I want a countryman but I'm 6'5" and I worry that I wont even fit.

so recently I bought a 695 low current probe from amazon and a osciliscope multimeter and am having trouble getting a reading. I have my oscilloscope set on mV and my amp probe clamped to the negative battery output with the fuel injectors disabled but my osciliscope shows no wave forms other than the initial crank, anyone know what Im doing wrong here? Also sorry if this doesnt belong here I'm not sure who else to ask, I'm also not sure which setting to put it on since it didnt come with a manual and I'm not familiar with electronic diagnostics

What part of RTFM and fix your shit isn't helpful? As best as anyone is able to tell without sitting down next to your dumb ass and holding your hand, you have an incorrect setting on your equipment.
You'd have better luck on /g/ desu.
Does it run TempleOS? If not, /g/ is just going to call you the blackest gorilla nigger. So same as here, really.
They have several threads on general electronic equipment, there's a even oscilloscope recommendation thread. /g/ isn't just computers.
I don't know how your oscilloscope is build and if the mV setting is right, but sounds odd.

Anyways, if 80A is the maximum your probe can measure, its way too little for measuring starter current.
Depending on engine, the starter can draw peak ~800A and constant ~250-300A.
At work, I use a 1000A probe for measuring that current.

I wonder if Toyota is actually gonna make a turbo 86 or if they just let subaru go first cos of a contract or something. Iirc the original 86 brz were announced and showcased at similar times but apparently the Toyota reveal isn't till later next year

Still that's $540 per year, way less than $1500

Why do lifted trucks send normies into rants about penises?

Is there something inherently sexual about them?
109 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.
Sports cars have a purpose they are not fashion statements
What is touring?
Trucks have a lot of tradeoffs making them a poor choice for most (rational) people. Fuel economy, size, safety and so on are compromised for the benefit of largely work related features - cargo, and hauling. They're also comparatively uneconomical in the dollar sense, the difference from consumer to commercial, kin to a Quadro vs. RTX/GTX or Snap-on vs. Craftsman.

So what drives the irrational selection becomes the question. In most cases, for trucks that are kept stock, I'd assume that they were at some point under the impression that it'd be used with the added functionality. But with lifts? It's either hedonistic irrationality from manchildren that never grew out of their monster truck lust, or some form of insecurity. There are, I'm sure, some BRODOZER bois that actually use their equipment, but they're few and far between.

How many lifted trucks have you seen that don't also have wheel spacers and incompetent and inconsiderate drivers installed? I'd say it's about 50/50 on either category in my locale, so there's a 25% chance to catch a lifted truck with spacers and a shit driver in that population.

Yeah, you get it.

Yes. Positive feedback loop. The conformity bias would seriously amplify something that came naturally, though, which might be why it's such a commonplace assumption.

Except a higher center of gravity increases rollover risk. Rollovers are the most deadly type of accident. And that's without factoring the increased angular momentum in the case of a rollover and force vectors that safety implements weren't designed for.

This is now a C4 corvette board

Post and discuss C4 corvettes
I want one but only because of the reddit dash. If I drive it in the winter is it going to disintegrate?

Then why don't you lower a suburban/expedition if you want a body on frame v8 wagon? That's the closest you're going to get without going to something ancient.
I hate modern cars. I just want a plain-looking station wagon.
You're retarded, that is all, not even worth arguing with.

Obtain the OBD2 software for it so you can diagnose and fix issues.

If it's the model with air suspension, you should sell it immediately.

These prices were taken from that leaked magazine that's been going around for a while. Japs always have higher pricing because of tax and other things. Always have been cheaper in the U.S, at least recently. A base 370 costs 30k here while in nippon land, it costs 37k usd.
This. The jap's design horrifies my Old World eyes and sensibility.

Why yes, my car has no clear coat, so I can clean/dry it in a minute with a window wash squeegee and sponge and not worry about getting scratches all over it.

discontinued so people sell them for absurd prices on the used market like the volkswagen beetle

Also, most of Africa drives wherever the fuck they want anyway.

>UK’s shitty idea
No, you retarded sugar-peddler. Driving on the left is the default. Drive-on-right was started because Napoleon was a lefty and wanted to use HIS dominant hand to behead oncoming peasants, and forced the rest of europe to follow suit. America copied because they're just as weak-willed, and due to being a french proxy to try and defeat the british empire.
It didn't fucking work, but all the frog-influenced retards stuck with drive-on-right because they're retarded frog-guzzlers.

In Australia at least some European imports have the stalks on the other way around, I've driven a Volkswagen transporter and a Holden (imported Opel) Astra. So the indicater stalk is on the same side as your gear stick, it's pretty annoying at first but you get used it.

Maybe all the euro imports are like that I don't actually know, Asian cars have it the normal way though.
