Swear, can’t believe anyone would pay mustang GT money for a fuckin Miata.

To top it off he wants to spend a shit load of money on boosting it ????

Why not just buy a mazdaspeed Miata used ????

I mean guys, I get it , muh small light weight car but 181 hp ain’t gonna cut it. Too many cars now will iterally outrun you from a stoplight. Enjoy flooring it to pass.

Don’t ever try to flex on anyone with power unless you want to be shit on.

My friends crappy 2011 fusion sport would give you trouble, that’s a problem friend.
I mean at least it beats a GT86 in autocross memery but that's all it has going for it

The mustang is a jack of all trades DD/mid-level track car that will frustrate advanced drivers and kill newbies, the GT86 is a DD/entry level track car that will keep even good drivers entertained, and the miata is just an autocross machine you take cruising down canyon roads at 15mph over the speed limit.
>enjoy flooring it to pass

i think that's the point. remember these cars are designed by the japs, who don't get into childish highway races over who gets to be in front. they get into gangster (literally) backroad races over who gets to cut his guts out for dishonoring the yakuza.
>Enjoy flooring it to pass.
i own a miata and there is no greater pleasure in my life than dropping a gear for overtake. but then again, i have no power-related complexes, so i might be a different kind of customer

>While the new MKV A90 Supra may not compare to the some of those tuned Mark IV Supras with their watermelon-size turbochargers and lag for days, it isn't lacking in shove. What it is lacking, however, is noise. The cars we tested were on the quiet side, despite some digital injection of engine notes through the car's speakers. Yes, like many BMWs the car makes fake engine noises, sounds that get louder in Sport mode and cannot be disabled. Even still, when pushed hard the Supra doesn't exactly roar.

>The prototypes I drove all had heavily clad interiors, cloaked in black felt to hide seats, panels and other components. Even so, the BMW-ness shone through like a Bavarian beacon. To select drive you squeeze a button on the side of the upright shifter and pull it back, like most modern BMWs. An iDrive rotary controller sat exposed just to the side. I was able to spend more time experimenting with the transmission, an eight-speed automatic that always did what I requested via the wheel-mounted paddle shifters, but often took its time.

It's shit. What the fuck man?

Because that RWD coupe hasn't had any major updates in effectively a decade
If the average Z4 driver sits in the back it will have 50/50 weight balance.
Hard to figure out how the Supra will weigh 400kg more, I mean the engine probably weighs another 50kg and the respective upgrades are another 100kg and thats it
This car is why the GT86/BRZ can not have
even 250hp.

This is the car it could not compete with. This is the car it could not outsell. This was supposed to be their cash cow, their car that cost about as much as the GT86 to make but priced for twice as much with identical sales numbers.. And it's a BMW without it's only redeeming quality - the fucking badge.

No, it's literally a toyota badged BMW Z4 without a manual option (that the actual Z4 has, lol)
it costs toyota nothing to make because they just buy 90% of it from BMW and add their own bodykit

My old car is getting really old and dated. Considering buying a new one.

Dad (literal boomer, but quite experienced with cars) is telling me to buy a BMW 1er or Audi A1 if I want to have fun driving.

Do you think he's right? Co-workers and friends warned me that Audis are not realiable and BMW's are money pits. They told me to buy a Ford Focus instead. Someone even told me to buy a '07-'10 Civic 1.8.

Which one would you buy and why?
I'm in need of a reliable, sporty car. Actually considering buying the Civic.

If you can find a 135i (n54) go for it

sounds like a dumbass

Go for the Civic.
What budget and where are you?
As much as it gets slated, you can get a good FN2 Type R for not very much at all. Same with the Mk2 Focus ST

Guy right by me is selling a 1995 Lexus LS400 (8 cylinder) with 200k miles for $2,000. Should I get it?

Problem is, although he claims he's been taking good care of the car, he has no maintenance records for it and will only let me bring my mechanic to check on it. Might be a real sink if this guy is a flipper and/or retard or a pretty good deal, I'm not sure. Here's the car.

What the fuck is that? A firewall?
I think the idea is that it allows higher rpm due to eliminating valve float.
Just look up rotary valves
the contrary, it spin faster because it doesn't have reciprocating weight, its a chamber that while spinning opens and closes the passage of gases to the cylinder.

What the 30 year old boomer doesn't get is how modern cars use vortex generation to achieve better aerodynamic efficiency, I really like Group C/GT1 cars, but they are outdated in aero design.
If the full length Mulsanne returned then certain design changes would be given to LMP's for higher top speeds, but it isn't.
They don't need the top speed.
Tires and suspension like I said a few times now. Also you dumb Euros are confusing fender skirts with side skirts.
Correct, and to most by saying skirts we didn't assume fender skirts.
However, the point still stands that a modernised pre-2000 prototype with modern tyres and suspension tech wouldn't be as fast as an LMP1-H around Le Mans.
God thats hot
I'll admit that it is growing on me, though the launch car still isn't great.

Late 80s/90s era of BTCC was amazing. It got completely out of control, with teams turning up like they it was an F1 event. Even Nigel Mansell ended up in BTCC for a while. If memory serves correctly, he was a driver for Ford and fielded the first gen Mondeo.

Hey /o/ I'm tryin to wrench but this fucker won't come off. It's both rear wheels on a 2004 grand jeep cherokee. Tried some wd-40 around rotors and bolts and rocked it but they still won't pop. Even tried original iron . Any suggestions?

>180 ft lbs
>more than enough
you've never had your car worked on by a green mechanic with a brand new air gun, have you?
First off, WD-40 is a terrible penetrating oil, it does a ton of stuff but all mediocre. Get oil thats specifically formulated for penetrating

The best trick it get a tube, put it over the end of your breaker bar to essentially extend it's length, go slow and pray you don't break any of them. Chrysler lug nuts are the worst thing on this planet
you always need a breaker bar for lugs
Penetrating oil, blow torch, breaker bar, muscles.
I have an XJ that had those shitty 2-part lug nuts when I bought it. Impact wrenches fucking destroy the outer caps. When you do finally get those off, be sure to replace them with good solid steel chromed 13/16" acorn lugs. The original ones are absolute trash.

Anyway, get some decent penetrant on there (like PB Blaster) and let it soak in for a day. Use a six point socket, a breaker bar, and a 4' steel pipe extension. Do not use a 12-point socket. Do not use a ratchet. I can't remember off the top of my head, but those inner nuts have a weird size. They're smaller. Maybe 17mm? Remember to turn the lugs counter-clockwise to loosen. Basically, you stand at the end of your long ass pipe extension and do a deadlift. You should get a lot more force this way than you would with body weight. If that doesn't work, just take it to a shop before you round out the nuts.

Of course, it still ticks all the concept car buzzwords: "autonomous", "connected", etc. But unlike the vast majority of concepts it doesn't look bad at all. I hope manufactures follow in Peugeot's footsteps and stop making their EVs look like shit so they don't sell. Let's just hope it reaches production and doesn't cost $50K+.

Also shout-out to the Anon who let me know about this car a week before revealing (in the electric sports car thread about a week ago).

Lovely. I wasn't expectng this at all.

It isn't a 505 but I'm well pleased by the design. Pity it's electric and all, a turbo 4 banger plus RWD could do well in the market.
