You have to chill and give people a reasonable chance to move over. For instance, if they're blocked from merging into the slower lane by another vehicle, what do you expect them to do? A lot of times the retard in the middle lane is on auto-pilot subconsciously matching the speed of traffic, and loves to cruise right in other people's blind spots. Gotta admit, people who are cruising in the fast lane, but aren't passing and aren't the fastest vehicle, yet do not move over are dipshits who cause crashes when assholes like you show up. Protip: use your damn turn signal if you pass on the right, dummy. If you don't, and that guy you're tailgating tries to get over, it's your fault if you crash. It's not your road.

hahaha I used to work for an Infiniti dealer and it's so true.

They always end up so neglected when the cheap-ass owners have to pay for a repair upfront and can't take out a high interest loan to cover it like they did on the truck itself. Or, stacy the soccer mom neglects the shit out of it until it's catastrophically damaged

Good to know the actual name of it. My buddy has a box of distributor parts that had like three shafts all fully intact but I couldn't get mine taken apart without fucking the screws up.

I'll see how this one does. I still have my old one sitting around. If I can get the screws sorted out I can probably piece it back together.

>>18355446
They need to get back into the rear wheel steering thing. That's what put the Prelude on the map back with the third gen. ATTS was cool too but it broke so much people went for the base model instead. Maybe they can make a more reliable one now? Other brands use some weird torque vectoring that use the brakes but I heard from a Fiesta ST owner that it eats brake pads like crazy.

>>18355509
As far as I know, Honda has the most models available with a manual. The Si being manual only has also been a tradition since the badge became a thing as well. I'm not sure if they'll do any DCT stuff, but they do have a ten speed auto they've introduced recently.

I only remember this by the guy's name because I did a paper on it in high school.

The first self-propelled vehicle was created by Nicolas Cugnot for the French army in 1765, with the intention of moving cannons around the battlefield. Powered by steam, it was total shit all around, mainly due to weight distribution (lol), but Napoleon and everyone of the time still acknowledged it for a great military achievement / engineering advancement etc.

This was of course many years before Karl Benz's advanced development with internal combustion in the late 1800s. Yet still, you never really hear about Cugnot at all. Mercedes has been very good at marketing since their start I suppose.

IMO Group A is better than B. because although lacks the thrill and fun of Group B, it is much more reasonable and safe.

On top of that, Group A cars are actual production cars sold on the market, unlike $500k beast machines shaped like production cars and named after production cars that is Group B and WRC

What is the GOAT way to get the absolute most money out of your dollar when buying a car and what type and year car will also be cheapest

Im guessing a used 2011 crown victoria. $2000 for a car with 50k miles and only minor shit will break for the next 10 years.

Anybody got anything better?

Buy a crown vic with 50k miles on it for 1500-2000, save heaps on car insurance and maintenance because the goddamn thing has half a million cubic inches under the hood.

People won't cut you off in traffic or want to park next to you, but those 8 cylinders can really haul ass if you feel like stamping the gas. Also you have a humongous trunk and passenger compartment.

Lol guess again angry internet dude. I live and daily drive in Chicago - I short shift because otherwise I'll never make it past 2nd gear when there are other cars on the road. Do you want to show me where the WRX touched you?

>>18355182

It's not a matter of AWD vs RWD or FWD, it comes down to the drivetrain specific to a particular car. Yeah I've drive stick in an STI and an Eclipse GSX as well, doesn't mean they feel the same as the stick in the 15+ WRX's.

Find the smallest incline you can and just focus on an even back and forth between and gas and clutch. Learn to be able to control the initial contact of the clutch and you wont have to worry about stalling out anymore

Since muh inishuldee, I would eventually like an Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, preferably an EVO 3, but for sure a EVO 4 or prior.

How well do these cars actually hold up? Would it end up being a money pit of unobtainable parts, or are they still decent cars 20+ years later?
>>
>>18354963
I'm no expert but I'll bump your thread and tell you that Mitsubishis are usually reliable unless they're beaten on. They're pushed harder than an equivalent Subaru to make the sameish power. If you drive it like a Subaru it will not last as long.
Here is where the problem comes in, because your standard vape naysh yall dude bro drives his Evo like a WRX. If you import it and it was only driven by grandma nip to the store on Sunday then expect it to last as long as you take care of it. If it was used for dorifto back in the motherland then it's future is uncertain.
If I'm wrong somebody tell me, this is just what I know about Mitsubishi.

Im going to be short and sweet with you OP given the fact that you are most likely (honestly no offense intended) 17 and don't know what you're even saying, given you selected this car because of an anime you watched.

You will literally consider wrapping your car around a tree for insurance money. That is how much you will hate your life. You will almost no doubt get a lemon and even if you don't, you can't expect an older rally car like that to be in good condition as the previous owner was most likely also under the age of 25 and beat the living fuck out of it.

Mitsubishi is a second world country type of carmaker. Best to leave their cars there too. Then again, you sound like you have your mind made up.

TLDR Buyer beware, it will be a money pit and you should consider something else

as long as it isn't your DD you'd be fine. parts are probably hard to find Also try this: Researching and not asking people on 4chan
or contacting somone selling one state side like pic/link related and ask him how hard it is to find parts for it

where do you go and what do you usually do? Are they pretty consistent?

I have a handful of places that I usually end up. Overall it feels like long, aimless driving, which it is. regardless, you go on solo night drives often /o/?
