Road Peasants
Who here actually traded both testicles for a pickup that literally doesn't see anything but asphalt and a clear payload? As far as I see, if you own a "pickup" and it has never been used to haul so much as a bicycle, you're literally equivalent to someone saying "I'm saving my wife's hymen for her next marriage."

Change my mind.

Automotive nostalgia.
nostalgia intensified
You know why many sports coupes from the 90s have so many fans?

They represent everything that is disappearing in the automotive industry today; brilliant handling, powerful engine, interesting design, excellent workmanship and, most importantly, excitement. This is a souvenir of the times when in the world of 4 wheels everything was going to be great and it was going to be even better. Sometimes when no one cared about ecology, every manufacturer had a coupe for the people. Although it seems strange nowadays, in an era of intense media promotion of healthy lifestyle ideals, for example, in the past there were advertisements for cigarette and alcohol brands on racing and rally cars, and the racing paddock was unthinkable without a host of scantily dressed grid girls.

What has happened to the current car trends, which now seems to focus more and more on ecology and safety, and what seems to be the worst possible trend associated with the growing role of electronics in the automotive industry, the inability to repair certain parts without the use of once unnecessary electronic gaiters and the deliberate reduction of car manufacturers' reliability, and in some cases even deliberate surveillance of users of cars filled with modern electronics, which more and more often act as electronic prostheses, replacing purely mechanical steering devices, instead of pure and unbridled and increasing speed, freedom and feeling of freedom, and arousing strong emotions among future generations of automotive enthusiasts.

Centrifugal Clutch vs Torque Converter
I just watched Garage54's video on a DIY centrifugal clutch and got to thinking about the behavior of a centrifugal clutch vs a torque converter.

They seem to accomplish the same task; allowing slip at idle and "stalling" at a certain rpm to allow the car to takeoff. The centrifugal clutch is a simpler and cheaper technology. So, why for most of history have we been using torque converters? The torque converter is at a disadvantage to power and economy until it fully locks up, which only came about as a standardized technology in the '80s. My understanding of auto transmissions isn't perfected so I would love to learn if it is necessary.

Junker endurance racing
To recap:
>Team originally tried to race a hybrid Toyota on electrons only
>Got rejected because of safety and budget concerns
>Race was delayed because of Kung flu
We're now scrambling to see if a 1kr-fe will fit on the electric transaxle, if anyone has any knowledge about which Toyota engines fit the bolt pattern it'd be greatly appreciated

While testing in electric only with a hacked controller we have horrible 1 tire fires, we're debating whether to try welding the diff or try and source a proper locking one

If you're thinking of doing something like this, don't
Or get a bolt, they have much better transaxles and can passthrough the gas motor's power for high speed stuff, some burgers should definitely try putting an LS on it
Keep ~60% of your budget for batteries, maybe more

Thoughts wanted - new sports car project
Hi anons. Aussie car nut here. Having trouble thinking about my next weekender.

I’ve had skylines and silvias in the past, so lots of experience modding and driving these.

My next project will be a weekend car, mostly for spirited driving some windy mountain roads, will see the occasional track day.

I’m tossing up between another S15 (had one before) and a new Mx5 RF with the latest engine. Either platform will be modified for handling and power.

My thoughts:
Had one before, know that platform very well.
Powerful, turbo, cheap to make faster.
Hydraulic steering rack and real throttle.

20 year old turbo car.
Hard to find one in good condition but not impossible.
McPherson strut suspension is rough as guts. Very harsh ride, not refined at all.
Cops in Australia hate them.
Getting fairly old, will it hold up over time?

New car.
Double wishbone suspension, definitely not as rough as the Silvia.
Can push it harder more frequently without breaking the limit = more full time fun.

Electric steering and throttle.
Might be too small for me as I’m 6’2 and built.
Engine not as tuneable but less likely to have problems.

What do you guys think? What would you choose and why?

>ford fiesta
>ff 14 years
>corrosion stage 2
>several issues lately
>service is due end of 2020
>somehow still kickin it, however

So, I really need a new car fairly soon. During these testing times of coronachans visit, I am curious what everbodys take of the implications on the car market the following weeks and months is. It will be fucked in one or another way, I am pretty sure. Manufacturing came to a hold. But apparantly people arent buying cars rn, which puts dealers in a tough spot. However, I am not sure about the build quality the next weeks and also wonder, how long one would have to wait for a brand new car to be delivered.

Are there any such effects for the used car market? I would possibly like to buy smth from 2015-2017ish.

Anyone else in similar shoes? Thoughts?

tl;dr: Are the coming weeks a good opportunity to buy a car for cheap?

Hey bros,
I’m looking at for a good first weekend warrior but unfortunately lack the experience that can’t be learned through catalogues and forums. I have a suitable daily, so fuel economy isn’t an issue at all. My tastes tend to lean towards the older (70s-90s) Japanese kind, but really, I want a light, balanced car that doesn’t have to be loud, fast or flashy. Any thought would be appreciated :)
(Also, pic not related, just really love the ta22.)

Rust update
Alright /o/ so I took a stab at it and it turns out it was only the outer metal that was messed up no major damage to the inner well afaik. When I was cutting out the damaged parts I ran into a substance that looked like solid powder, a kevlar like substance and metal. I have put some naval Jelly on the inner well to try and remove the rust, after I'm putting on primer. Also there is a small section of what appear to be frame rail under the rear number and it has separated from the inner body metal because when I try to remove a piece I have almost cut out it lifts off the inner part, time for some brazing. My next big question is why did I find house spray insulation at the bottom of the area, any guesses if this was from a previous shoddy repair. Car is 1989 Toyota MR2 MK 1 for reference. Pic related

I ordered a pair of super hicas decals from a guy that's reproducing the stripes, but they dont match. Now, what would you guys do? Run super hicas on one side and turbo on the other, or run one side with a non-matching super hicas decal?

Tacoma chads,
I'm going to buy a Tacoma from between 2014-2018, depending on what's available and affordable around me. I'm thinking the 4.0 V6 access cab, not the four door.
Anything that I should be aware of when looking at these cars? I've never owned a Toyota before, never owned a pickup before either. From what I've seen online they're reliable enough that there's nothing you really have to be wary of when buying one aside from the frame issue on the older ones, which was recalled for free anyway.

What happens if I don't return my leased car?
I leased a 2017 Jetta and the lease expires in August. I'll be about 1,000 miles over the lease by that time. I would he OK with buying the car after the lease expires, but the residual value is about $9,000. I think this is a little expensive.

Is it possible to negotiate down the residual value to $7,000? Or would I need to return the car and buy a used one for $7,000?

Since the economy is falling apart and will be worse by August, what happens if I don't return the car? Will that make it more likely they will accept a buyout for $7,000? Will I get arrested for grand theft auto? I'm in Texas but I leased the car in Arizona.

Mystery part
Would anybody have an idea what this could be?
It is about palm size and surprisingly heavy.
The lower part seems to be full metal, and the upper part is rubbery and seems to be glued on top of the metal puck.
The only markings are "mazda" some star symbol and 2-2.

New Sports Cars Are Dying
Everyone here laments the SUV hell the roads have become and want to see more entry level sports cars, but why don't more people here actually buy them new?
After all, the auto manufacturers have no reason to make them if the enthusiasts (you guys) don't actually buy them.

I'm looking at picking up a 370z in the next year or so. From what I understand the stock vlsd isnt that good. If I plan on modding it (wheels, tires, exhaust, maybe suspension) should I just get a base and put a Quaiffe helical diff? I have seen base models for like 10k.

Good compact or mid-size sedan for daily driving
kia forte
I'm looking to purchase a sedan for daily driving. Currently looking at 2019 Kia Forte, Mazda 3/6, and Nissan Altima's. Anyone have any experience/recommendations with these or other sedans that can be purchased with low miles for sub $15k? Mainly looking for a car that will last me a long time, low repair cost, and good gas mileage. Full disclosure I am not very knowledgeable of cars.

Fun car for young people or a waste of time?

Usually i'm really not into small hachbacks like this but the interior looks pretty comfy and it doesn't have a massive touchscreen in it.

I'm actually considering their newest Hybrid model, especially as it doesn't require being charged by socket and it's cheap.

Motorcycle "rear/back exhaust"?
Hey there, I saw this term, "後方排気", lit. rear/back exhaust in Japanese (in the context of motorcycles) and I was wondering if there's any kind of English reading about it. Googling "bike rear exhaust" or "bike back exhaust" doesn't yield any useful results, only the Japanese term does. Is it just a straight pipe exhaust or is it more complex than that? Is there a straightforward English term for this?

From the Japanese site via Google Translate:
>Rear exhaust means intake from the front of a horizontal engine and exhaust from the rear. In the past, it was common to take in air from the rear and exhaust from the front.However, restrictions on the exhaust pipe management have been eliminated and the mounting position of the engine has been lowered, so driving performance can be improved and it is also advantageous for cleaner exhaust gas. Therefore, the number of vehicles adopted has increased.

If I can afford either, which should I get? The Type R is stretching it some, but I honestly can't see too much of a reason to get it over an Si. The Si has plenty of power and fantastic handling at over $10k USD less. Is there something I'm missing here? Is it mainly just extra horses between them?
