checked, if you can find a decent, non-warped pair of aluminum for under $600, then go that way. The GT40s would still be nice to play around with and learn hand porting, though.

sup /o/, quick question: it's been 6 years since I last changed my engine coolant, but less than 30K miles (I average about 4K/year). Should I go ahead and replace it even though the manufacturer only recommends every 60K miles, or is the amount of time passed enough to justify a flush?

>my ‘18frontier says to replace at 110k miles
Is this just retarded or is it safe to leave until then? The truck is only at 80k miles and I take gud care of it.
but it's a closed system, usually
>only at 80k miles
that seems like a lot of miles for only 3 years
Oh no no. Coolant expands and contracts with temperature, which is why there's an overflow tank that's vented to atmosphere. Yes, the radiator cap won't blow off below a specific pressure, but the system is meant to tolerate slow and normal changes.
Sometimes true - on my car the overflow tank is pressurized, on my truck it is not (vents to atmosphere).

But in reality nothing is really a "closed" system over a long enough period.

Get one of these, at least it has acceleration.

This is correct. Quattro is vastly superior and LSD is optional and the supercharged V6 is reliable and easy to tune.

And the build quality is vastly better.
It has Audi software and it’s literally better at TCU, ABS, torque vectoring. Sedans are naturally more aero friendly

Need a redpill on these. Considering one over an NA Miata and don't know if I'm making a mistake

Based. Got any vids of your RX8?
if you have other cars, take the plunge, they're extremely fun
but if someone is selling with more than 60k miles, red flag and prepare for maintenance costs
NC Miata>RX-8
NC has the benefit of sharing the RX-8 chassis without being an RX-8.
No vids sorry. I plan to sell the car so I haven't done much spirited driving with it. Turns out having multiple cars costs alot of money which is why both cars are stock.
I can tell these are getting more popular, having owned one for over half a decade I'll give you some thoughts.

Personally, my 8 has been extremely reliable. I have had precisely 0 issues with my car. My advice to you is as follows.

1. If you live in a rust-belt state and this is your only car, immediately get it corrosion treated. Krown, Corrosion FREE, whatever--just spend the money to have it properly sprayed or get a sprayer and thoroughly do it yourself. These cars can and WILL rust rapidly like other Mazdas of their years.

2. Be prepared to change your oil every 3,000 miles and to top off every ~1,000 miles. These cars burn oil via a stepper motor which injects engine oil into the rotor housing to keep the apex and face seals lubricated. Oil choice is a huge subject of debate and is quite tribal. As long as you keep up with it, most maintain the oil type and brand don't matter but I personally only use Royal Purple due to their history with racing rotaries.

3. Buy Idemitsu premix. Every time you go the pump measure out the proper titration for how much gasoline you're putting in the car. For a full tank I usually add 6 ounces of Idemitsu premix. YMMV.

4. If you want this car to last you need to get rid of the stock cat. Immediately mid pipe the car if you can get away with it, or if you live in a strict emissions area you can purchase a high-flow cat like the HJS 0182. It pretty much needs to be the HJS 0182 though as these are pretty much the only tried and tested catalysts that don't build backpressure under the heat of the rennie.

Good luck, I hope you decide to get one, they are great cars for car people. If you aren't an enthusiast and just want something that looks sporty go elsewhere.

What's the least powerful production car that can do 250km/h (155mp/h)?

>it's not powerfull, 300 something hp
look at low drag coefficients like the opel calabria, which got ~245 km/h from ~200hp apparently
the 330d only does 242 km/h with 204hp
the 330i does 250 km/h with 231hp

an FD has 236hp and does 250 km/h
a z31 turbo has 228hp and does 250 km/h

you probably need at least 230hp to break 250km/h as drag increases with speed
something modern and slippery like an A4 or a C-class can do 240 km/h with 190hp
I swear it's an American thing to care about top speed. Who cares?

They make a 2 piece pipe to replace the old transfer pipe, only requires you to pull the intake manifold.
Looks good but used German cars are very unreliable.

Explorer ST and X3 M40i both run high 12s in the 1/4

they're so unreliable even those who buy unreliable german trash think they're unreliable.

>use force to jam in the gear
>revmatch perfectly because syncros are almost dead
>enjoy the sound of a supercharger when driving in 5th gear which is probably just transmission noise
driving 70 km/h feels like 120 at least due to destroyed mufflers
but other than that the car ia unkillable. I cant count the amount of street holes ive taken at way too high speeds.
I can take every terrain i want (excluding 4x4 domains ofc) and i am not afraid of breaking anything because NOTHING BREAKS
take the shitbox pill bros
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
yeah i've been thinking about this.
Whar care possible reasons for a dead cylinder? My grandpas friend used pc software to determine the compression in that particular cylinder and 2 cylinders were good, one was at 80 % compression and the 4th was at only 40 %.
The new ones have simulated shifts where you can bang on the IVT lmao.
Well you need spark, fuel, and compression, so usually one of those things is missing. Modern cars usually don't need new spark plugs and a new distributor cap every year, but that's still a possible point of failure. Ironically, fuel can be a per-cylinder probably on modern cars because of port or direct injection rather than having a carb or using silly old throttle body injection.

So that leaves compression as a likely suspect. Maybe your rings on that piston are just all fucking shot, but it's always possible some other weird thing is amiss, like maybe one of your valves gunked to fuck or isn't closing all the way. The sad part about compression is that it's often a mechanical problem that might cost a lot to fix.
the lesser weight and ability to rev the piss out of it without breaking speed limits (but tho that's also true with most german cars since they are also ungodly slow, slower than brz, the slowest car in existance)
and the good connection with road they don't try to hide with luxury, it feels good to drive them.

Suspension is hit or miss, some are understeery, others break the ass out when you break, others are perfectly balanced in corner, shit that you'd expect from the aforementioned "sports sedan" but don't get.
the soft suspension and lack of filters between feedback and you teaches you weight management, which is 99% of fast driving.

unironically that's why all the racing drivers reccomend you start with a poverty spec shitbox. cause you can't drive those fast without learning the real technique.

Mashallah don't talk shit about ultimate driving machine
Even though the spend billions of dollars and 10+ years to make it as light and fast as possible- It still weighs 1600KG which is exactly how much the R34 GTR weighs, and that one has 2 More seats and doesn't have a single spec of Carbon and limited use of Alluminium, too. So they didn't even try to make it light. Granted, I assume the LFA 10 times stiffer but yeah. For someone who prides itself for How light the Engine is, how much carbon fiber was used for weight saving etc etc, 1620KG isn't Light by any means for that.
Also, it's got less torque than an IS-F. And by now, there are many Family Sedans that have a faster Nürburgring Lap time than the Supercar Track Focused LFA. The Stearing wheel is also Electronic btw.
With that being said. I have never driven one and probably never will, so I just speak out of my ass and just point at the Spec-Sheet. Cars aren't just the numbers, I do understand that. But if you want a fast and rare Exotic, the LFA '''objectively''' (apologies) should be your very last option. UNLESS you really, REALLY like the Sound, because it is indeed the best sounding car of all time.

When I asked car toys a couple of years ago, they could add remote start to my 1996 model year cars. I think basically any car with power locks and obd2 can have it added aftermarket. But cool you already had it
My '92 obd1 Blazer S10 had a remote starter. I would imagine they need a million bullshit ass safety interlocks these days hence the need for obd2. My Blazer definitely didn't have any of that and would remote start in drive or reverse lol.
