>>20027731 >fake noise >not a noise generator
the i8 has a noise generator as one of the ''''''''''''''exhausts''''''''''''''''
savagegeese confirms it is the fake engine noise. The worst part of it is that you can't turn it off. It explains why RCF is a pure shit and won't fly off dealer lots.

No no, I meant, it has in-cabin fake noise but it's not like one of the seperate outer appearance exhausts is one to appease people who look at your car. Needing fake noise for other people, ones outside the car, is on a whole other level imho
>rcf >4k lbs
It's pretty interesting how that one GT3 team had to cut well over 1k lbs to get it to be somewhat competitive
I recently purchased a 350Z from 2003 and a friend suggested to use Muriatic acid as a budget friendly engine flush. I poured a small bottle in and I drove a few places. How long should I leave it in for? Or how far should I drive it for? My friend said he forgot how long to do it for ,but that he saw it on 4chan. Hopefully the original poster is here and can tell me.
You seem like a good guy, don't let people abuse your kindness.
>>20027264 >asian cars are nothing but trouble
dude how can you do something as fucking stupid as putting muratic acid in your car because your friend said you should do it after he saw a vague post on it from 4chan, and then just turn around and say that
China is like if that Final Destination movie were a country, fuck
Should've used caustic soda.
>>20027264 >I'm about to prove my parents right. They never liked asian cars and they said it was going to give me nothing but trouble.
It's not proving them right: you gave yourself this trouble by following second-hand advice from the internet (4chan, no less) without doing any research of your own to verify it or clarify all the stuff you didn't understand. The car is innocent.
Are most Toyotas these days just simply rebadged Corollas?
Yes. There is nothing wrong with it.

>How do I join the collage? How does it work?
Post proof via food on hood, time stamp, or /osg/ stickers and upload a photo you would like to use (may use proof pic for collage)
Include year and model
Photos will be removed after a year unless you update it with new pics (do not need proof to update)
New columns will be made for models not yet in the collage
There is no limit how many cars you enter
If your car is no longer with you, let us know! It will be immortalized on the collage and it will not expire.

what ford are you about to get?
The glove box in my foxbody is stuck shut. How can I get it open? I tried unscrewing the two screws on the bottom but it's still stuck at the latch. Is there an option that doesn't include breaking anything?
How much harder is it to drive in the UK if you've only driven in the US before?
>>20027717 >but you do sometimes forget when driving on autopilot and try to change gear with the wrong hand.
I did that all of once and grabbed the door handle. It never happened again
the test is seperate for manual and auto (though manual license lets you drive an auto too).
there are some seriously fucking narrow roads here that fit 2 cars (which are going to be doing 30mph) with 5 inches on either side, so coming from driving in the US, it will probably be a bit of a culture shock. petrol is more expensive, emissions tax, insurance, yearly MOTs, etc. cars are some of the cheapest in the world here though so there's that.
If you are out in the countryside you'll encounter a lot of minor roads that are a single car wide but have speed limits of up to 60mph. In such a case your speed should be governed by visibility, slowing down substantially for corners or hill crests where you can't see oncoming traffic.
get ready for
>narrow roads >giving way at parked cars >multi lane roundabouts >pedestrian islands (always keep a lookout, any dumb twat could just step off the island located in the middle of the road and start walking in front of your car) >hill starts >congestion charges if londonistan, know how to avoid routes with those
everyone says that my car has uprated brakes for the speeds it can achieve but i still feel like they are lacking.
how bad of an idea is it to upgrade to pic related, with better pads, lines and fluid?
ty that matches with what i read before, realoem just listed them under abs and not abs thats what got me thinking.

i recently bough a battery charger for my car that is in winter storage but i only have a socket a few feet away from the garage. would it be dangerous to run an extension cable to the garage and leave it plugged in? or would it be better to only plug the charger in for half an houer a day when im around? thanks for the help
You'd have to sell it to an idiot.
Why don't you just plug it in for a day or two (continuous) once a month? If the charger says it's full, no need to keep it plugged in. Another option is to remove the battery from the car and have the whole setup in your basement.
Yet another option is to just remove the negative battery cable so the car isn't connected to the battery. If your battery is in good condition, you might need to throw the charger on it once during the entire winter.
thanks, i thought i had to leave it on there because most chargers have a conservation mode.
I want a car that has an insane amount of body roll. Would are some cheap, easy to find sedans that will offer me this?
how is that even physically possible
Springs and bumpstops.
A 70's land yacht.
the formula for body roll is atan(2 x suspension travel/track width), keeping in mind that you also count the tire deformation as suspension travel.
So the ingreadients for body roll is a narrow car, with plenty of suspension travel and soft springing, and preferably a lot of tire sidewall. So it's no surprise old french cars are known for it.
I've never had any problems starting my jeep, but its been super cold (-22f) and now the engine is making some weird electric noise and not turning over
ive been told its the starter solenoid or the alternator, but I really need to learn basic auto maintenance. Anyways I got it started by popping the clutch and drove it around for a bit.
After an hour of driving it was starting and stopping on its own, even after being left for a while. When I got home its back doing the same thing, making that weird electrical sound.
Any idea on whats likely broken, since I will obviously have my noob ass raped if I take it to the stealer-ship off warranty
seriously guys five years ago you told me to buy this thing in a thread and I havent bothered you since
not to feel entitled but can I at least get a little help
Your battery is getting old
The battery is bad you goddamn imbecile.
Sup /o/, are you fine folks planning on doing any car-related Black Friday shopping this year? I'm on the lookout for some new summer wheels, myself.
Is a PC steering wheel car related?
Sure, why not. Speaking of, I saw a pretty good deal on Newegg yesterday for the Logitech G29 wheel/pedal set, only 200 bucks.
I'm waiting to see if the Thrustmaster TMX Pro gets any cheaper. Also I have a few headphones I'm interested in, maybe I'll come across a really good deal on one of those.
How come we don't have gas station attendants in the U.S., if they are normal in Europe, Japan, China, Colombia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Russia, SEA, basically everywhere else in the world? (though I don't know if they have them in Turkey)
Also apparently in other countries you pay after you receive the fuel, whereas in the U.S. you must always pay first for the gas unless it is a very old station.
here in the Philippines, a gas attendant will also wash the front and back windshield, check your engine oil/coolant levels, tire pressure upon request for free. Then will say "thank you sir/ma'am" as you ride off, most of the time.
Every time, fuck
>>20025392 >no longer arrest people of color for minor crimes
Even SF has to cancel that programs after upstanding youths would skateboard down a block busting every car window for kicks.
Let's not beat around the bush
no matter how shitty the economy is, no one wants to work for 3 dollars an hour and no insurance at some soulless corporate franchise, get shot in the face for 2.34 worth of gas on an EBT card, and then still somehow having your family get sued by the head office of your employer
imagine being this naive
