Spun out again at the track today in my miata taking a turn too fast. It was my fault for not braking properly since the speed broke the rear loose far too much than it should have.

What should I upgrade on my stock miata to avoid this or at least to better my handling in general? I need a forgiving car for an idiot driver like me who almost slammed into the guard rail today. I have decent track tires already. It handles great already, but I would like the suspension and handling upgraded now.

I had no idea Nakazato owned a Miata at one point. Please tell me it's black.

Putting shit on your car won't make up for your driving, this is real life anon not forza
It's the driver that needs an upgrade,not the car.

Lmao. Just buy a fuckin ls1

you retards need to learn about power to weight ratios

150 horsepower in a car weighing <1700 pounds is objectively better than some 300 horsepower machine weighing double.
>what is torque
>what is torque to weight ratio
>what is drag coefficient
I'm hype as fuck for the development of these engines.
>presumably equal torque
>near 40mpg in a 3000lb~ vehicle with top rated crash tests
Its pretty incredible. Shitboxes have truly been elevated to art. I'm really excited to see what they'll be able to do with SCCI in the 2.5L, the new turbo model is already fairly impressive at 250hp and 310ft/lbs.
I have to wonder just how much efficiency they'll be able to extract by 2025 with the far future Skyactiv system.
Torque is also realistically only a preferable measure of performance for Drag-racing and towing.

drag coefficient is not a problem for any car built after the 2000's

Hello kind people of /o/
I just bought a 2001 Solara. It's in great condition. Wondering how I can spruce this up to race it through the mountains like Dagoomee.

I've got my bike stored for winter but not on stands. How important is it to rotate my tires? And how often? Once a month?

I just moved and have not a lot of spare cash to buy stands, though I'm planning on getting them for next winter once I'm more established here. Would one season of not rotating them make enough of a flat spot to really fuck them?

Just put it on anything if you're worried about it: logs, cinder blocks...
Didn't really consider doing that, seems like it'd be hard to balance, though I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult. Only shitty thing is the bike is wedged between a wall and an AC unit, so there's not a lot of room to work.

Nice! Get the heads torqued down and make sure you keep her cool. The 7M does not tolerate overheating.
The c26 can handle a lot more boost than the shoddy factory gauge shows.
Replace the bushing in the shifter, changing gears will feel much better.
Before anyone asks, yes, I bought it off of a Mexican. Gonna raise it up and get rid of that stupid fucking spoiler and repaint it at some point.

That's a pretty good looking vehicle for 300

My stepdads friend owned a Kübelwagen. We'd visit his place in London and he
Would take us out. It was very loud.
Oh man and I didn't even get into cost of ownership. It can get nasty, with routine stuff like replacing the shocks running at $400-$700 per corner for parts alone, to horrible shit like the clutch blowing due to the slave cylinder dying (I think it's $3K unless you do your own labor), the AWD system grenading ($3K-$5K), and the paper thin engine cylinder walls cracking (dunno what the costs are but the solution is to put the 2.3 or 2.4l engine in and boost the fuck out of it). I averaged around 16mpg on mine once it started being a DD, although towards the end my MAF sensor was going bad and making me run rich.

The V70R is something of a classic, though, and if you get an 06-07 (don't touch the 04-05 because stuff like the AWD system was a much bigger problem in those years), keep it to highway duty, and understand what the costs are, it's a great car.
Volt, because of this control panel.

Nah not at all, goes in and out riding the threads fine. I thought the plastic bit on the clamp that the screw sits in might have broken and been pressed through, but it's fine too.

Help me out /o/

>Want a sporty conpact

Should it be a new wrx(non sti) with limited trim

Or a low milage (less than 20k on the clock)? used Golf R?

2016 Rs tend to run less than a new WRX although they are much more rare to find. Also both will be manual.
What year is the WRX?
New so 2018
Assuming you're paying for the price of a base model WRX limited, with no added options, your budget is about 30k. So what we're comparing is probably a 2016/17 Golf R vs 2018 WRX limited with no options.

What you'll get on the Golf R which you won't get on the WRX:
>Premium sound system - Fender 9 speaker 400 watt amp with an unintrusive subwoofer in the trunk
>Leather bucket seats
>Selectable chassis and suspension settings (Comfort, Normal, Race)
>Active safety features (front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keep)

The Golf R is also a much less flashy car and has the practicality of a hatchback. The Golf also weighs about 100-200 pounds less and gets slightly better gas mileage. Besides for the sound system, you cannot get any of those features even if the WRX limited was optioned out.

The WRX has all-time AWD which is superior to the R's AWD which doesn't use the rear wheels until they're needed. The WRX has a bigger aftermarket but both cars are very easy to tune and can get huge power out. The WRX also has much cheaper repair and maintenance bills. It is also much more flashy and aggressive if that's your thing.
The GTi/R is cheaper to self wrench
apr tune/other sets both in the 280-360 bhp range for less then 700

the wrx will suffer more maintenance at 45k+ millage and cost much more to increase bhp compared to either GTi/R

WRX has way better handling/awd system
ride is worse however

WRX for track use Golf for daily car thats fun

The Golf will also have more features just about any way you slice it

Golf is better on insurance as well WRX is "flagged" model and suffers from more speeding tickets
Does it have to be only those 2 cars? There are significantly better cars out there for the money.
