I'll lay out the fundamental problem with EVs:
>it's the batteries, stupid!
Batteries are about 16x less dense than gasoline. Even when you take into account the superior efficiency of electric motors (70-90ish % vs 40% for ICEs) that only makes batteries about 1/10th as good as gasoline. Fuel cells are the only realistic answer in the near-term, and that tech hasn't gone anywhere in decades. So until the battery problem is solved, failures like Ford's F-150 electric shitbox are going to worsen as consumers figure out that EVs suck.
And no, battery research is never going to solve the problem (at least not for hundreds of years). Battery tech is very slow to advance, it has always been slow to advance, and there are no "breakthrough" technologies that will change that.

How do I stop driving so recklessly? If a cop isn't around I will blatantly ignore rules of the road. It's going to get me in trouble sooner or later.

I'll floor it on back roads, run stop signs, run red lights and all sorts of little shit because frankly, I know when I can/can't get away with it. How do I stop?
Took me killing 2 people in a nissan rogue on accident. Tbf they lived the accident part.
Define reckless? Running a stop sign with no cars around isn't reckless. How often do you get the horn blasted at you?

Yeah when speeding in a shitbox, this is an issue. I had a Suzuki swift that could do 180km/h but sounded like angry hornets raping your ears.
Honestly the way I speed, it feels more like croozing fast.
Maybe you have issues with aggression and not speed, just need a different outlet for it, like beating your wife.

My car’s shocks seem to be blown (very stiff, even on softest setting, very bouncy no matter the setting) and I’d like to replace them with something decent. Usually I get Ohlins DFV and am happy, but I’m on a budget and am honestly considering Teins for the first time in my life.
Tein Flex Z coilovers are $600 here vs $1540 for Ohlins. Should I just get the teins or something similar? Probably won’t be spending much time on the track, just mountain roads and daily driving. So for my purposes, the negatives of the teins seem to only be extra weight and a slight hit to comfort.

They don't make them for the FD yet, but I just got a set of Koni special actives (their trick is frequency selective damping, basically a Koni STR-T that can automatically adjust itself based on how fast or slow it compresses or extends) on my shitbox and I love them. They're comfortable on shit roads while also having the ability to stiffen up when you drive it hard. The catch is you can't run springs that lower the car with them or the bypass valve will never shut (it'll be soft all the time), and they don't handle massively stiff spring rates well either, so if you want those things and/or don't daily drive it so comfort isn't something you care about, go for the yellows instead.
teins are made in china, hence why they are so cheap. all coilovers are shit for longevity, their threads for spring adjusters rust and seize and their shocks dont last long. theres a reason why no street car ever came with them from the factory. get sporty shocks instead of larping as a racer
Yellows and GCs.

Social media to women is what porn is to men. You know you're shamelessly getting off on tranny porn and fully aware that it's wrong and disgusting, yet you do it anyway so you can blow a load.

Is it advisable to use E85 if your engine supports it?
Just got a '16 Ford Focus which is newer than anything I've ever owned before and this flexfuel thing is new to me.

It seems too good to be true that I can fill my tank with something that costs 30-40 cents less per gallon than standard gas. So what is the catch? Will it hurt MPG? Make my engine explode? Increase wear?

Expect a 50% reduction in fuel mileage.
race gas isn't leaded, some aircraft fuel is
your engine and fuel system were designed for it, it's the best case scenario since all materials are compatible. you will lose about 30% MPG because the combusion reaction for ethanol has a different stoichiometric point. >>27838973 is a retard for spreading FUD about wear but he's partially right. ethanol is only worth it if you drive it a lot or drive it hard. since there's more fuel there's more fuel dilution, which means more ethanol ends up in your oil sump and you need to get the oil temps high enough to evaporate the fuel out. if it were me, I would change my oil every 3k. but ethanol has a lot of benefits, like running a lot cooler and resisting knock and cleaning your combustion chamber. on some flex cars like the caprice police cruiser, you also get more power on ethanol. if you get it tuned you can definitely make more power.

E85 on the city is a gaz guzzler. On the highway, on the other hand... i make about as much mpg as gasoline.
empty your tank and fill er up with e85. save your mileage. watch your odometer when the tank empties out. calculate your mpg and do the same with gasoline. divide by fuel cost and you will get the smartest choice. by experience its all about your driving habits. i use my car almost exclusively for highway
yeah 30% is under equal conditions in a lab but irl it depends on the way the engine is tuned and what specific load and rpm you spend time at. best thing for OP is to just try it out and do the math to see if he's really saving anything.

woah so many numbers, so many european lauguage, many gears, much metal, very analogue, wow, it's like having a giant rolex watch in front of your face while driving your computerized hybrid V16 hypercar that requires mandatory 20000 dollar maintenances every month or else your car gets confiscated and you get sued for disrespecting the manufacturer
Generic slot radios were actually peak, you can take that touchscreen out for a single slot radio or gages if they really bothered you or upgrade your touchscreen once it's outdated
points for modularity and upgradeability for sure
but also they look like shit, i much prefer the look of integrated radios on older cars. in order to preserve the looks, ill happily pay to install a hidden bluetooth module, wired inside the console somewhere.
I can easily forsee a future where quantum-computer based LLM's could fairly easily decrypt and analyze your ECU and even tune it for you. You'll still need electrical skills, but the future is coming where you can have your own code monkey in your pocket.
there's no need for LLMs
the problem isn't editing the code, the problem is the legal protections around the code (copyright/anti-tampering shit) and how to even interface with the system (proprietary connectors/DRM stuff)
if you can connect to the ECU and read and edit the code (without going to jail over it), the rest is ezpz

I'm looking for a used car that I could buy with a $1,000 down payment and that can be used for work (like food deliveries)

My credit is not great but not terrible (that's what the bank tells me), I don't really have any family/friends that can help me get one. I would get an Ebike but it's been raining a lot these summer months (south east USA), plus doing food deliveries on a ebike is kinda dangerous in my area due to the lack of bike infrastructure.

Does anyone know a decent make/model for that? Or am I doomed to keep taking the nasty ass public bus?

A real job is like an office, store or a factory where you show up, work your shift and earn hourly wages or salary. You shouldn't need to make major investments into work. The biggest investment I've made was buying clothes and shoes that were appropriate for the job. But I could drive my $500 shitbox, ride a bike, vanpool, or bus over there. But usually i drove my fancy $2500 luxury SUV
they mislead people pretty badly, but any finance manager or sales guy at a dealership can tell you that.
credit scores are really most useful if you buy a new car and the manufacturer has promotional financing, since it's based on if you get approved, then the threshold for promo financing is by score (which score? fuck off, it changes every time)
financing is for broke niggers with impulse control issues
buy a $1000 car, drive it while saving up for something better. when it kicks the bucket, sell it for $500 and get something better
>durr you can no get $1000 car
literally 10 - 15 cars in my city on marketplace that run and drive for $1000 or less. you can find $1000 runners all day long. go for rusty, deer damage, flood damage, salvage title, etc.
if you go the marketplace route and see a car with any leaks in person, ALWAYS be ready to walk away. a lot of sellers are scummy and hide issues til you show up and coincidentally remember the car is pissing oil everywhere from one of the main seals. you don’t sound like the type to wrench or want to wrench but regardless, ALWAYS be ready to walk away. it’s almost impossible to find a good used car nowadays that can reliably to you from A to B without blowing up or falling to pieces on the highway. lots of neglectful shitheads out there just looking to make a quick buck at your own expense. INB4
>cheap cars come with problems! wow!
yeah. but those problems should be along the lines of
>anon! don’t roll the windows down because they don’t come back up.
>the door card is loose/missing.
>the mirrors are missing.
>the seats are torn to shit.
>the paint is faded/rattlecanned/scratched.
you know, minor things that don’t make the car ACTUALLY unreliable.
Get rid of the bank, join a credit. Should be able to get an auto loan or worst case a personal loan. You now have that $1000 in case of problems. Being down south you should be able to get something decent for 4-7 grand, I wouldn't go over 8k.
