why live
just tell it that it's actually a wheel in options. Also try restarting the game.
You still can, just go to results on live racers, then choose any session you want the chat from, then go to download the result, you should get a HTML file where you can see the chat if you look through it all, and you can see all the aids everyone is using along with their fuel
>someone else here played Hard Truck 2
Damn, didn't expect that.
It's still a pretty fun game but the collision detection is so god awful that it ruins the game, you get stuck inside other trucks so often. Either I dont remember it from back then or the game cant deal properly with modern CPUs and shit which causes the physics to go crazy, who knows

buy or lease?

>0% interest loan
Add zero down as well and I agree with you. But you usually need good credit to pull that off.
Its 2018, credit card companies are literally giving you money to sign up for 0% interest credit cards, you have to be a goddamn idiot to have anything less than perfect credit.
Lease if new
Buy if used

A 3 year used 4Runner goes for $32k, monthly payments of like $550. I can lease a brand new one for $349/month and buy it "used" at the end of my term for $25k. No reason to buy new or used in this situation.
This isn't good advice.
People love to toss it out, as if it were actually helpful, or even sage wisdom. When you buy new, you pay more for a handful of factors you simply don't get with an older car.
>Used cars require repairs and maintenance irregularly, meaning one month all you've got to pay for is gas, while another you've got to replace a clutch plate and flywheel.
>New cars provide modern features, and engineering which has improved incrementally on that which came before
>Having a fresh machine means that its performance will remain constant for longer, rather than being erratic.
You can save a lot of money on bread by buying the discount stuff that expires the next day, and you can save some money over time by buying used cell phones, but I know you fags don't do that shit.
Leasing ain't bad, in that if you buy new, you're eating the depreciation cost for the first few years. Whereas, with the lease, you're paying less money for that same period. You can still buy the car at its depreciated price afterwards, or just get something else, not unlike the folks who trade in their car every few years, except you lose less money by leasing.

Buying new only makes sense if you're going to keep the thing for 10 years. Most used cars will cost 4 or 5 times their purchase price over that same period. Neither option is truly cheap, but the latter is a lot easier to get into for people who have a habit of not paying their fucking bills on time, and thereby have horrible credit scores.
>goddamn idiot to have anything less than perfect credit
haha then this world is filled with idiots then. A lot of people have no idea how to manage credit.

Why do people with tight budget buy 20 year old bmws and mercedes s-classes wich will barely work and will need expensive repairs constantly instead of a new Suzuki or Dacia?

Am I retarded?

Too much oil will cause the crankcase to beat it all over the inside of the block and whip air into it. The oil will actually look light and frothy, as well as killing horsepower. What do you think happens when low viscosity oil that is 80% air gets pushed through an oil gallery into a main bearing?
Gonna push out the rear main seal and have a slow oil leak
No u

I put too much oil in my Subaru and on the highway my gas pedal lost throttle (but not pressure).

There was smoke but my engine still able to turn on but would turn off shortly.

Do you think I have a blown engine or a gasket/seal issue?
19 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
So I could give you advice, but you asked if you could hide a headgasket failure in order to dump it on someone else. You can go fuck yourself.

This is kind of funny for me, because I know what probably went wrong. Hope you sleep well tonight. Douchebag.
You probably just fouled the plugs. Look at them first before you go condemn the head gasket.
From your response I can deduce its not a head gasket issue.

From my research I've realized it's a small issue

Tomorrow it'll be fixed =)

Check the coolant and look for oil

I'm gonna check if the all connections are okay, anything else that I should check?
it's definitely a turn-of-the-millenium FnF-inspired look, but I have to wonder who thought it looked good with all that random blue leather. The seats (suede inserts!) and carpet are fine but the shift boot and wheel make it ricey. Aside from that it's not any more garish than the black/red NA Special Edition.
Yeah maybe, maybe even us or japan, who knows. Theres a nice reputable japan importer a city over but it just didnt make any sense why there are literally less 1.8 miata NAs for sale than there are oddball cars like rr wraiths or fisker karmas
Rally style is my jam. Seriously considering a lightpod for my NB since I drive in the mountains at night, and I've got no fogs so I can legally run an extra pair of high-intensity lights. Dunno how a set of Rallyarmors would look on it though, even with a bumper cut. Some speed holes would probably be sufficient.

check ground points if everything else is wired properly

Yeah and after your 10 grand LS swap you're still stuck there because you're out of money. $40k car and it's just a dragster because you put a boat anchor in the front. Nice. You could have done that with a $4000 foxbody and had less weight to pull, and money left over for more power.

I'm looking into getting a new car and I came across a 2009 C63 Sedan with 71,000 miles for about $21,000. A W204 C63 Sedan is one of my dream cars and they're just now starting to be affordable.

Should I get it? What kind of reliability issues will I have going forward? What do you think about the car itself?
>open diff on a 500hp car
also head bolts.

Not too worried about the open diff, but I heard the head bolt problem wasn't that common and was kind of blown out of proportion.
it was just as common as the older BMW M5 rod bearing issue.
and when a head bolt broke you got $60k engine repair bills.

And how common is that? I haven't heard about it much.

This POS. it's small, not reliable, cheap and slow, very slow.
My buddy had one of these as his first car and said once: "watch how slow this thing is, i'm about to go all out." Then once he went "all out" i asked him if he's going to push it or nah, he said "that's what i just did!"

I laughed for 20 minutes straight and found out it had a whopping 45hp from a 1.0 4cylinder FedEx box filled with hamsters.

Why are you even masturbating over a vehicle you cant even afford? You start the thread jerking off over tiny shitboxes that cant tow, then you shift the narrative to towing prowess of your favorite pigfat 4x4. It's really reaching and strains any shred of your credibility. I;m super happy you like your $80k toyota, it better tow twice as a jeep for over twice the price.
Neon is not a small car. I'm 191cm and I drive a Peugeot 206. I'm comfortabke in it, size wise.
Sorry for not buying furniture on daily bases.
You're either bullshiting, taller than you say, or fat as fuck. I'm 6'3, I've owned a Neon and currently have a 7th gen Civic and both are perfectly fine. The only car I've driven that I felt was way too small was a Kia Rio.

I'll happily concede the Wranglers make excellent point to point forest crawlers and their 4 point f/r suspension setup helps immensely in this, along with an incredibly low range and reasonably stout drivetrain for its coarse, but they're a good point to point vehicle at the cost of payload, functionality and fuel range... unless your idea of an offroad adventure is a day trip for a picnic. But remember, you were the one suggesting a Rubicon was a viable alternative to a J70 Landcruiser.
I'll also concede Wranglers are more suited to coastal drives with Stacy and the girls

Ok, so i have a trial at a mechanics for an apprenticeship but i dont feel i know enough as i should.What are the main things i need to know about cars/being a mechanic?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
No it needs to be tighter. Better to be too tight than too loose, the torque setting is a minimum not a maximum and you'll get better performance when you over torque everything including things like your oil drain plug and oil filter. You do not want to have it come out in the middle of driving
This, I deal with students from a local school a lot.
Asking me a million questions bothers me less than a trickle of an oil leak from a mildly loose oil plug. Let alone the massive leak of double gasketing the oil filter.
you're a moron.
You're a moron that likes to have oil leaks.
one thing i forgot to say

It's this true?

Yes except you sometimes want slight oversteer especially in rally driving.
Funnily enough, I got nostalgia baited into playing Forza 4 yesterday and had to tune a hatchback to A Class. Ended up with a 300hp Mini with catastrophic understeer that spun its wheels all the way to third gear. Pretty accurate.
its not necessarily bad technique, its a completely different technique, fwd and awd racing lines are different to the rwd racing line. With fwd cars you are supposed to slam the brakes hard and turn it at the apex. Then once you're pointing towards the exit you slam your accelerator.
Yes. Follow your dreams.
