What do
If the accident wasn’t the driver of my car’s fault, can I get compensation from the crash, or is that fraud?

did you not release the title with the DMV?
Why the fuck do you want an accident on your record retard.

Fucking this. Always file a report of sale immediately after you sell any car. You can do it for free online in most if not all states.
I had a similar situation where I sold an old shitbox that was on its way out. The new owner crashed it into a telephone pole the day after buying it and the power company tried to come after us because the title hadn't been transferred. Pointed them to the Report of Sale I had filed and they fucked right off.

I figured out something weird about premium gas, tell me if my idea is right.
>Tune car so that it required 93
>Use 93
>Massive HP boost (66 poni, 99 tork)
>When I drive around even not gunning it it's ultra smooth
So I had a Merc 300SE and Passat Turbo too, both require "premium"
>Use 93 in them sometimes
>Very smooth cars
I had a MKZ and CTS-V, do not require "premium"
>Use 93 sometimes
>No difference in the smoothness of engine
>Decide to use 86 more often then not

SO: If the car IS TUNED up so that it will be knocking on heaven's door if "premium" isn't used, it it much smoother when premium is used. That's because it has higher compression to begin with which == smoother ride. SO, IF THE CAR ISN'T TUNED UP 93 DOESN'T MAKE IT SMOOTHER?!?!

Thanks. I'm just shocked how freaking smooth it is. Got me thinking if it's made for 93 it'll be smooth on it. I have no idea why it's like that all of a sudden.

where have you guys been in the best enthusiast states?
11 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.

I'd be down for a meet-up if /o/ coordinated. I lived in NC for a few years, and moved to Ohio as part of an office transfer with my employer. Always did enjoy the roads down there.

Although I think I spent more time on the mountain roads in VA/WV than I did in NC since I'd often drive up to the midwest and back to visit family etc.

Tried taking the Blue Ridge Parkway from Roanoke VA to Ashville NC a couple years back. That day started cold wet and rainy, with lots of wet leaves on the road. Pretty sketchy. Then I hit a suicidal deer which smashed my headlight. Then it got so foggy that I had to bail. Fog was so thick that I could barely see ten feet in front of me. That stupid deer had me shook too. All in all a bad time so I definitely need to try it again with better weather...and not when the deer are rutting
I've noticed a lot of nice cars in Huntsville, Alabama. Went to a car meet there not too long ago and it was pretty sweet. Some guy had a Viper that sounded great. Good roads here too. I have a shitbox, but I'd be down for a meet.
I live here in coastal/eastern NC and I can't agree to it being the "best enthusiast state" since learning there are other states that don't require annual equipment inspections and allow less than 35% window tint.
sc dosent have inspections, hence why i said carolinas
i dont have it in me to host something like that but i would absolutely attend
also yes the roads are great, but not as scenic

What’s the least jewish car insurance company? I read progressive was good. Going to buy a used car from a private owner.
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Define Jewish. I've been enjoying root. They track you for about a month to see how you drive (I hear its largely based on how much you drive) and charge insurance based on how risky that data makes them think you are. So, they track ya and that's weird but it's cheap af. 2 duis on my record (although no car accidents) and I paid 70 bucks a month for my 98 explorer. Think I'm around 110 a month now with an 08 civic, 96 f150, and 88 bronco (all minimumish coverage). It's like half what most want from me Sept progressive? Maybe nationwide was pretty competitive but ultimately more. Never had an accident so no idea how that goes with them.

On the tracking shit though, you're supposed to let em track you 100% of the time but I've since got a new phone a year or so ago never downloaded the app again they ain't said shit.
Why does this thread get posted every day? And why are there geico and progressive shills every damned time? These are universally understood to be the worst insurance companies in the marketplace
a big gecko cock? jeez. stories anon?
Yeah, I don't believe everyone loves these companies. Progressive kept jacking my rates every year even though they had no reason to and I could barely afford minimum coverage after a while. To get them to drop it is a huge ordeal where they bounce you around to different reps yo try selling you home or renters coverage before "finding some discounts" and lowering the cost just to start raising it again. I finally switched to farmers for slightly better coverage and a lower premium. Its still a huge ripoff but the rates have been consistent if nothing else.
I've >>23894519 had good experiences with progressive personally. Can't remember if I had nationwide first or progressive but they're affiliated somehow cause after my dui my agent said to switch saved me 30 bucks a month. One of them penalizes that more than the other I guess idk how that works.

Anyway as for geico that's easy.

Depends who you are. Bro works for government gets crazy cheap insurance.

(no it's not a conspiracy that's actually simply why they're called that)

Yolo for sure bro, tell her to live it up. When my grandfather passed away my grandmother decided to bite the bullet and buy a last gen 99 Firebird with a 5 speed, she's had it the last 20 years and I just recently bought it off her since she's getting too old to be comfortable in it.

So grandmas Firebird is now my lifelong project and I'm replacing it with a nice little Lexus SUV for her and my mother to scoot around in until I find a decent Challenger for them to cruise in style with and doesn't require a fucking crane to help their old asses in and out of...

the Firebird and Stratus both require you to literally fall into the seats as they both sit so fucking low to the ground, not good for a 75 and 48 year old women. A tiny SUV for the winter and a sexy purple Challenger will keep them occupied while I turn the Firebird into a fucking Auto Cross road racing monster and keep the Stratus R/T tucked away and looking pretty for years to come.

Thanks! she's a great little car, nothing in comparison to its real deal Trans Am WS6 brother but that's nothing some suspension components and a V8 swap cant change. Once I'm done it will be a bit more potent than a factory WS6 at least when it comes to suspension and brakes for starters.

gotta get a set of seats for it for my first mod. Stock seat is blown out from 20 years of a hefty woman daily driving it so I'm cruising the junkyard every weekend to try to find a nice sporty set of seats out of something like an Audi or the like. Car came with semi-power buckets but they leave so much to be desired and even when new weren't too comfortable by any means. The V6 models had a less supportive version of the full power WS6 seats and I'm not gonna bother dropping almost a grand on a set when I can pull some gorgeous leather seats out of a luxury car for practically nothing and weld them/wire them into the Bird.


rode into Atlanta, stolen tags and almost out of gas...
I’m okay with that. Also, doesn’t the Chrysler300 classify as a barge?

Here are some specs of the Emrax 268 electric motor (not used in pic related).
>Length: 91 mm (3.6 in)
>Diameter: 268 mm (10.6 in)
>Dry weight: 19.9 kg (43.9 lb)

>Voltage: 250 V nominal
>Best efficiency: 98%
>Power-to-weight ratio: 11.6 kW/kg

Would Emrax 268 make for a Based electric car?

could make a mean gokart.
what, no love for the zombie 222? though as for production evs, yeah, they are all pretty boring, like the taycan is sorta cool, but its pretty much the only one so far. But I will say, the spark ev, despite its fuckin abysmal range, does have an absolute metric assload of torque for its size, which is pretty hilarious. Also the upcoming ev pickups are pretty interesting, between the r1t with its stupid amount of cargo space and tank turn, then the hummer ev is just a new hummer, which is pretty cool, and the cybertruck (while I have a shitload of problems with it) has a pretty cool design and the simplicity and durability of the body is pretty cool, I hope they end up making an even more basic and practical version, because if they could even just have removable sail panels and a flat roof I would buy one, also an option for no rear air suspension would nice.
they're heavy AF and drain way too hard under spirited driving, I just can't like them.
Why not replace the steel parts with aluminum ones? That will cut down on weight, for sure.
Are you talking about the Zombie specifically or EVs more generally?

Because EVs get lighter as batteries improve, and they're still way more efficient when driven in a spirited fashion than gas cars. They're just let down by only having 1/4 the stored energy, but that's increasing soon to 1/2 which will make a big difference.

The AX4S liked to shit the bed, I think by 2004 they were all AX4N, which while similar wasn't as bad.

The previous gen 3.8 + AX4S was a recipe for sorrow. The 3.0 Vulcan didn't have enough power to break much.

The Vulcan has a tendency to pop head gaskets around 200k, but if you just replace them you're good for another 150k.

Any car you pay under $2000 dollars for is going to be shit.
These cars are a nightmare to work on and you're better off getting a escort. But if the car has been well maintained and everything replaced semi recently its not a awful deal.

Not him but I've dailied a P71 before. They have stiffer suspension and sit a little higher. The interior is very comfortable just like all panther bodies, but it's definitely shittier. I'd recommend a P71 if you want a really cheap car or a hoon project. If you want something that's enjoyable to daily, I'd go with a Grand Marquis or Town Car
