Hello me! I'm the exact same in my teg. That thing handles beautifully 99 percent of the time and is so fun to whip through corners, but that once in a blue moon moment where it does understeer does happen. The good news is I've never fully lost it

Yeah, a lot. But that's how you learn how to control it while sliding
A few times on roundabouts, I had a massive shitbox with completely bald tires but I was too poor to replace them so every time it rained I would have to be ridiculously careful on understeer.
If you came onto the accelerator at all on a roundabout you'd just understeer like a motherfucker.

Also one time when I was going hard down a mountain pass, I left it too long to brake for a turn and my wheels starting skidding, I got it back again in time for the turn though.
I'll never forget the smell

A chevy cargo van has been parked infront of my house for 3 days.

Two dudes never got out and it's been sitting there.

What should I do?

park your car right infront or behind it and see if anything happens
Sounds like urban campers or homeless people.
Its a nuisance but probably nothing to worry about.
>It's an older ford econoline so I doubt it's anything else.
>cops wouldn't mount the plate like a faggot
Call the cops.
What are your street parking restrictions? Most places have a restriction on how long a car can be consistently parked on the street within an X hour period within Y distance of the last place it parked. Check your bylaws, call bylaw accordingly. If the van doesn't move, isn't told to move, etc, then it's likely a government or otherwise authorized vehicle.

Report as anonymously as you can (payphone, friend's phone who doesn't live near you) so that if it is a surveillance van, they don't know who it is, would have to assume it's the person they're surveillance-ing, and leave anyways.
We had a guy parked in front of my house for hours. Very unusual so we asked the cops to check it out. He was a private investigator watching the house across the street as part of a divorce case.

You have two choices. First, call the cops and have them check it out. Second, go up to the van and offer to empty their piss jugs for them.

2 seconds is roughly a car length and a half. That's too close to be safe.
I can honestly understand the other side of this. You see someone far as fuck in the roundabout and it appears they're going slow, and as soon as you get into the intersection they're right on your ass. Personally I never have that problem because I always floor it through roundabouts but I can see the complaint

I think I want a C5 Z06.

Any reason not to? Aside from it being financially irresponsible.

3k civic and a sportbike.
>Not buying a C6
Id go with a c6 corvette. its everything the c5 corvette is and more for about the same price
>big boy job
Dude that's McJob. And you want to buy a C5 Z06 as your first car?

Just STFU and get a Civic. Save your money to invest in a house or something
do you have 20k laying around to buy a c5 z06? If so.. well then, can't say its a horrible idea.

If you will be using your 'big boy job' to finance a c5 z06.. well then.. hahaha. oh hahahah.

Buy what you have the cash for.

and how isn't the back roller not skipping out when they are going forward?

>>all i care about is speed
Who said anything about speed? The SS has performance numbers identical to the M4. There's no winner either way specs-wise.
It's all the subjective things that the Camaro does well. BMW used to be great for all those things. The pinnacle of fun BMWs has long been said to be the E39 and E46 for their subjective feels like steering feel, steering wheel feedback, suspension feel, etc.
The GM engineers who worked on the GM Alpha and Zeta platforms were big fans of the E46 and E39. And it SHOWS.

BMW dropped the ball.
GM of all people picked it up.

Get over it.
>are there better options
No this fat electronics bloated piece of ugly shit is definitely the best car
Not for a rebadged Nissan
The 1LE might be fast and fun to drive, but not as fun as a M2, dont push it. I dont know, it might be faster but i also dont care, the BMW is a better product, a quality product. Well built and very well engineered.
The Camaro is just a cheap way to get a fast car, and edges were cut to make it cheap. And thats ok for most americans, but for me, i wouldnt buy a new sports car with worst build quality than my 10 years old DD shitbox.

My friend said the fastest way to stop a car is to press both brake and clutch at the same time. I think that's wrong as you want your engine to help with braking, so you should only press the brake for maximum efficiency. Who is correct?

It's the only MR car from GM to make it to production. The chassis is a hyper-advanced and overbuilt steel spaceframe with plastic body panels. The body panels are not load-bearing or structural, so you can remove them and drive around with no detriment to safety. Pic very fucking related.
It's also the second safest car of the 1980s, second only to the Volvo 700 series.
The 2.8L V6 was potent for the time, and the 2.5L 4 cylinder, while slow, achieved over 40 MPG. It also had enough luggage capacity that you could use it every day.

Guy Fined $500 For Criticizing Government Without A Permit Sues Oregon Licensing Board
from the with-a-special-appearance-by-[STATE-REVENUE-GENERATOR-A] dept

Government entities tend to dislike people who criticize red light cameras. There's little evidence supporting the theory they make driving safer, but there's plenty of data out there showing just how profitable they can be, especially with a little fine tuning.

When someone takes it upon themselves to dig into traffic cameras, they make few friends at city hall. Oregon resident Mats Jarlstrom's interest in red light cameras was piqued like so many others: by receiving a ticket. Unlike some others, Jarlstrom has a background in electronic engineering and the inherent inquisitiveness to follow through on a thorough examination of yellow light timing. He did some math and came to the conclusion the timing was off.

“In his view, the leading mathematical formula for calculating the proper length of yellow lights (dating back to 1959) is incomplete, because it fails to account for how drivers decelerate before making a right-hand turn. Mats’s revised theory addresses that issue; his formula is based on the 1959 model but also factors in the time needed for turning drivers to clear the intersection.”

Jarlstrom's apparent mistake was not keeping these findings to himself. He spoke to local news stations about his research and presented his conclusions to a national conference of transportation engineers. The only entity that didn't want to hear anything about his yellow light research was his local government. He tried to present his findings to the state traffic engineering body but found it less than receptive to new ideas.

Genuinely curious, is this the second coming of Fuck You're Supra? Because I'm a fan.
>wear shoes inside
I hope he takes this fucking counter suit as far as he can and the law gets changed. That's fucking ridiculous.
Some people do, some people don't.
>You can call yourself an engineer all you want to your buddies, but when you start representing yourself as one to the public things get tricky. You can't call yourself a doctor or a lawyer without the proper accreditation, and engineers are no different.

At the same time, the politicians who fined this guy said he was breaking the law. Under these same guidelines, anyone saying that is talking about law and may not be a lawyer. Hence, then should also be fined.
