What can you guys tell me about ST184 Celica? Considering it
13 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
>It can't turn
Neither can any FWD
Thanks. There's also a 1988 Corolla GT-S coupe with the 4age that I was considering because it seems special. But it's in slightly worse condition, not as well cared for and doesn't have as many new parts for the same price as the Celica
. But it seemed need too.
The owner of the Celica is a mechanic and it's parked in his garage in those pictures so I feel like I trust it more, and for some reason it feels more reliable despite only being two years older. I guess I trust 1990 more than 1988 for some reason
Does it even have independent suspension

Hold on I'm retarded. I meant Mark Warner's Street Turbocharging. Maximum Boost is corky bell's book which while great for the year is old enough that he's suspicious about EFI. We got computahs and shit now yo.
I haven't read it, but I have read this and its bretty gud:
Forced Induction Performance Tuning by A.G. Bell
NOS heat always kills cast prisons.
just a turbo would have been fine and not too much for a LS3 to handle.
depends on CFM NOT psi you damn casuals.

Some action needs to be taken place, there is so much arguing going on here, everyone keeps fighting. Now there has been some agreement on a couple of things which is a good sign that we are slowly going away from the bitterness of the last threads.

A mini conference meet is happening at Main Event around 3:00PM on the 31st. More details on this post: >>15471220

The Galveston timing and I believe the date have not yet been finalized so more on that later.

With all that's going, please try to be respectful to each other and have an open discussion. Never forget about our beginnings. Regardless of that, THE NEWS:

- Hard to find news when scrolling through the thread because everyone is yelling, please don't do it this thread :3

- Night Wave the song and music video: >>15461003

- There are a few voting systems that have been proposed

When do you want do it? Also as GS said, it's possible to yank them out with a suction cup or depending on the where the dent is you can also use a heat gun to make it easier to do.

Why does /o/ get their feelings hurt about FWD cars so much?

There are those of us owners that dont want make it into a retarded supreme ricer experience.

I'm sort of excited to make a Celica into something nice because you don't see them well done too often. Not sure what's it gonna be.
Because everyone on /o/ seems to be a benchracer: only worrying about stats and track times, rather than practicality vs. application and quality for money spent.

Not every car is meant for racing. There are plenty of cars that are great at what they were designed for.
it'll get stolen eventually if you're parking it in a city

>Why does /o/ get their feelings hurt about FWD cars so much?

Fwd owners are frustrated because they're the majority but serious car enthusiasts mock and disrespect them.

It's easier to lash out at the smaller group than admit to themselves that they're a casual sheep with shit taste and no skills.

What does /o/ think about the Kia Soul? I never see it talked about here. Not looking at one, just curious.

>inb4 It's a Kia/It's Korean
yes we know that. Thank you for your invaluable input.

2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It's a decent little hatchback, but its unexpected popularity has caused Kia some problems.

The factory that makes them has been running at full capacity for years now. Every single car gets sold almost before it leaves Korea. Kia seems to think it's a fad and won't build a new plant to make more to meet demand. Because of this, Kia can't add any new models to the Soul range. Kia's been wanting to add a performance model to the Soul range for a few years now, but the popularity of the car and the fact the factory is already running at full capacity keeps them from putting it into production. Kia even previewed what a Soul performance model would be like with the Kia Soul Trackster concept, which had AWD and a 250 HP 2.0L Turbo. Would make for an interesting Focus ST, VW GTI, Civic Si and Subaru WRX competitor.

It's a Kia/It's Korean
yes we know that. Thank you for your invaluable input.
Kia has become the Scion of Korea except they're doing a bang-up job of it. The cars are actually affordable and make sense.

Power-to-weight. And the Corvette was built with people (wealthy boomers specifically) driving these about in mind.

The Radical is "street legal" but without any comforts found in the Corvette. Purely for "go fast, no one is going to be dumb enough to daily one of these." Pic related would be its bane.
are you retarded? can you read? it's 1000 pounds lighter
Wow let's see how fast a gutted 530hp Elise is. Wow it's faster than the 650hp street car.
Hey guys i put this 500hp turbo busa engine on a go kart, why is it fast?

I bet the suspension of the Radical is ultra hard.

Hey /o/ I was cleaning up some junk and I found a oil filter.
It's a fram extra guard PH25.
I think it's between 25 and 30 years old.
You guys think it's still good or should I toss it?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
No bro the oil filterium has decomposed into radioactive heavy metals and you're probably getting cancer just by holding it
>You guys think it's still good or should I toss it?

Age causes weakening of cellulose fibers or the glue on the end caps inside. Toss it. You don't need something falling apart and putting all sorts of floating bits in your engine oil. Normally, you'd say the filter gets rid of particles, but in that case, your filter had a critical failure.
Yeah. By 0.00001% or something like that maybe.
What complete bullshit
Yeah, paper, glue, rubber, these things don't degrade, especially when this was likely stored in a garage where temperatures and humidity fluctuate on the daily.

But, you keep spouting how it's complete bullshit, fucking mong.

Except he's parents are completely Italian, and he has lived in Italy since the 70's. That doesn't mean he is the same as the subhuman shitskins who live in Argentina, he is actually white.
His father is of italian heritage like a huge proportion of Argentinians. Try again faggot.

>Anyone else intentionally look for clean/nice cars to park next to?

Yes, I play the statistics game. They probably will not ding my car or hit me as they back out. People with old cars can swing wide as they back out and swipe me with the front corner of their bumper. There's also the door ding problem. But my main worry is not door dings but the "don't care cuz I have a beater" attitude. Heck, many people in /o/ have seen past posts where people basically say they don't care because they have a beater.
I just double park my car away from everyone else.
As an old truck owner in an area full of vintage pickups,it's easy to blend in.Nobody's messed with it,even if it's a paint scratch it's nothing.Such is polished patina life.
I drive my C6 corvette on the weekends when I want to go out and more often than naught I come back to my car to find more corvettes parked next to me. One time I had 4 corvettes and a mustang decided to park in the middle. I had a pleasant chuckle at that.
