It's time for us to discuss the TQ,
Tacoma's having inflated resale value isn't a meme, it's ludicrous how much people ask for them. But the real question, who is buying these to sustain these prices?
I see dealer inventories with tacos a few years old with 90 thousand miles for fucking $32000, there is a 2015 with 220k on the clock and they want $18k. Meanwhile they have some maybe a year newer with barely 10k miles and they are only $2k more than the one with 90000 miles.
Then on craigslist you got people asking $2k for ones that need a new frame, or 10 grand for a early 2000's one with 250k on them.
Who actually buys these fucking things at those prices?

Dumb question, but can you use a torque wrench to also loosen bolts, or should it only be used to fasten them?
23 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Alternatively, a telescoping/extendable 1/2 inch ratchet. Similar like this but it doesnt have to be harbor freight tool, this just an example:
Not 3/8, 1/4, 3/4 because these break quite easily.
If you exceed the torque spec of the torque wrench you will fuck up the calibration. Which is why they tell you not to use a torque wrench to loosen bolts.

As others have said you should use a breaker bar but in a pinch I have used a normal ratchet and a dead blow hammer. Make sure you put pressure on the head of the ratchet so it doesn't slip.
if you shouldn’t loosen a bolt with a torque wrench then why does it allow you to loosen it?
I can't imagine a Digital Torque Wrench getting thrown out of calibration since it uses a strain gauge vs a spring/detent combo like the micrometer/mechanical wrenches if you use it as a breaker bar.

As long as you use it within its range.
>CAN you

Of course.


Not unless it's your only ratchet and/or wrench, and if it is then you've already fucked up so hard you might as well go all in.

Counterclockwise/left-hand threaded fasteners my dude.

Tell me about car covers.
I recently moved in a neighborhood that has a lot of construction sites and trucks passing by and the car gets covered in dirt pretty quickly. Are those covers are good enough solution? Are they easy to steal (do they have some locking option below or something)?

>easy to steal
If somebody wants it, they will take it no matter how well you secure it. Chances are it'll just be ruined or your car more damage if you somehow secure it more

If it sits inside then pretty much all covers work fine. If outside and in place its windy I would suggest one made from soft, stretchy fabric as it'll sit still and not rub your paint, plus not move with the wind
They'll soon enough be filthy enough on the outside that they're not worth stealing. Can't re-sell a dirty car cover, they're too cheap new and clean.
Frankly I would just recommend not having a car you care about. It sounds like you're parking on the street so forget about ever having anything nice. If it is in the driveway and this is your problem, then sure, a car cover will keep it clean but you're going to get really sick and tired of putting it on and off every time you drive it. It's a huge pain in the ass. If it's not the daily then that's fine, but you might even just consider storing it somewhere. It'll cost a lot more for sure but you won't have to worry about it getting dirty or fucked with or anything.
also car covers trap the dirt and shit between the cover and the paint, so it leads to lots of scratches.

OP you'd be better off putting a shit ton of wax on the car so it's easy to rinse off
Yes they are beneficial. You just have to clean and wax your car. The cover should be washed maybe 1-4 times in a year to keep it from getting too dirty from inner side so it wont scratch your car. The attachments of the cover should be made from plastic, not metal because metal cover attachments will scratch your car. I have been using car cover for few years, through now without issues. Removing the car for every drive and putting the car cover back on the car after every drive isnt a problem to me because its so easy and fairly quick. I got 2 car covers, the second is stored in a clean plastic box just in case if:
1.I have to wash the cover that currently is on the car.
2The cover that is on the car breaks for some reason.
3The cover that is on the car gets stolen.

The cover can be washed in a large 9-10kg laundy washing machine with, 3 rinses, slowest possible spinning cycle setting, under 30c water temperature, mild/ color sensitive laundry detergent. No bleach, no ammonia.
Yes, the cover is often quite easy to steal. Unless you add a small wire(covered with plastic) keylock, but then the car cover most likely will be ripped to pieces during stealing process.

Expect things to go wrong. Stripped bolts, threads ruined. Don't have the right tool because it's your first time. waiting for parts. Possible short circuit.

There is no minimal. You go maximum all the way or never get it done.

Just a place for the open discussion of the platform and it's future. Feel free to post your car as well, might be the photo for the next thread.

I wish I could have a lifted BRZ and an 86 lowered by an inch
The BRZ's Gen2 face is growing on me a bit, I like it for the reason I don't like the rear. It looks unique to the platform instead of being any other car.

While I prefer the concepts face, it does look to be inspired by other cars. but maybe I'm blind
I feel the front wheel fender line that kinda goes nowhere is a bit awkward.
Anyone running an E85/flex tune?

I heard it eats away at the fuel lines and also is not as fuel efficient as 98 octane. Any tips?

So here is what I know.

You can run E85 without changing any components in the car, but this is probably the riskiest thing to do. Firstly it's really a hassle because you will have to flash a new tune every time you want to change fuel type. This can be flashed with an open-source tuning system like the OFT V2 or Tactrix. Don't recommend this at all, especially if you have problems with the ethanol content being consistent as that can negatively affect performance.

Flex Fuel kits, like Delicious Tuning's Flex Fuel kit, replace some lines that are prone to failure when using E85. These kits will also be able to actively monitor the ethanol content as well. FlexFuel is also a dynamic tune, so you can easily switch between E85 and your normal fuel of choice with no problems with performance or reliability. This is the move if you want E85, the kits are worth the money.

E85 is really just good for better performance, it is not as fuel-efficient as your pump gas. You will go through E85 a lot faster than pump gas. Here are the benefits of E85:

-E85 is less prone to premature combustion when compressed within your engine
-E85 is more thermally efficient, so less heat is generated

With the right tune, more aggressive timings will result in more power.

Is it a bad/stupid idea to attempt to tackle a 1980 Triumph Spitfire that needs basically a full restoration, as someone who’s never done anything more serious or involved than a brake job? It’s basically being given to me as-is, I just haven’t brought it home yet as I have to clear out some garage space.

It doesn’t run and it hasn’t been started in 30-35 years so I know that I’d have to test for compression.

Of course it's easier to get asian or domestic parts. However, if your vehicle has a following, you can get parts.
I get my weird italian motorcycle parts from a couple stores in the U.S, or go and order from england.

You can. Most don't because they either lived through those eras, or just find a nice one.

The first rule to finding a resto project is knowing exactly how rusty the body and frame are. It's really not worth putting your energy into something that's not feasibly fixable. Next, you've got to know what you're working with and whether or not components can be refreshed or need to be rebuilt / replaced. If it's little or no cost to you, I'd take it and try to get it to run again and then make a plan from there.
