>put AT tires on my gmt400 5000lb suburban
>drive on logging roads occasionally

Am I a super cool pro off-roader yet?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I've driven up rocky mountain logging roads on bald potenzas and a stock ride height civic si because I plainly don't give a fuck and bottomed out in the ruts at least twice but kept momentum.
You're cool as fuck, I approve.
True, before I'm a real off road master I need to perfect my Suburban inertia drift skills
i can smell the clutch from here
at least i had the decency to do it in an automatic accord. 2 range all the way
Sorry, but no. Until it has sustained major body damage and you have broken out a side window, by bouncing your head off of it, you're just larping.
Suburban shouldn't inertia drift it would probably roll in many cases. Just floor it on gravel/mud corners

Garmins do, I don't know about Tom Toms. I'm updating the maps in my Garmin right now. If you get one I recommend getting one of these little clip on ball mounts for it. You can screw them onto your AC vents and they give you a good viewing angle.
As if tomtom doesn't sell all the user gps data
Do you think the device just magically knows where to go? That it isn't in constant communication with a satellite?

My Garmin has an option not to share that data. Not sure I believe it; but I opted out of data collection.

How do I stop having anxiety attacks when driving on the freeway? Driving anywhere else is fine.
19 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Your advice is fucking retarded. It doesn't even address the issue. Broo just listen to eurobeat! What an absolutely pleb response. Also you originally said only driving shit cars could cause anxiety due to your own (lack) of experience and now you're saying nice cars can too when people say they're still anxious driving in their own nice cars, or whatever they feel comfortable in. Not once did they say the car was the issue you just started saying retarded ass shit.
>Your advice is fucking retarded.
Im not the one with anxiety
> It doesn't even address the issue.
But it does
>Broo just listen to eurobeat!
You missed the other steps - gotta drive fast.
>What an absolutely pleb response.
Plebs arent anxious when driving around
>Also you originally said only driving shit cars could cause anxiety due to your own (lack) of experience
No, I said that shitty cars give you anxiety, and you cant listen to eurobeat and thread traffic if the stereo and everything else is broken and shitty, so your always going to feel anxious driving them.
Other suggestions are grab a sippy - cant be anxious if you're sippin a good drink

You're the retard.
Drive faster than traffic
driving on the highway/freeway is statistically safer. Intersections are where you should have extreme anxiety.
Highways are the safest place.

>old cars are unsafe
>look at this crash test of an old car with a new car. The driver of the old car would have died
>see, that's why you can't sell a sub-1000kg shitbox anymore. you just can't
Meanwhile, this is what happens when any morcycle collides with a car.

How can anyone justify safety regulations while motorcycles are road legal? If I want to drive a deathtrap, why can't it have 4 wheels?
29 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because domestic car corporations want to keep superior foreign vehicles out of our markets. They lobby to bloat vehicles because they can sell them at a higher profit point when there's more shit added.
>>no one does this for some reason
too much effort for 99.999% of people. they just want a car that works and doesn't need to be fucked with and has all the modern amenities like bluetooth and heated seats and AC
not true, they all lobbied as hard as possible against making airbags mandatory
because the big nose clan would sell you the most unsafe deathtrap possible (like they did before crash regs came in).

many companies were still using 70s designs when the regs came in late 90s early 2000s and the crash tests from the period really show the difference. You can look up Rover 100 crash test to see this.

the other thing is that its completely possible to build a modern car that weighs little.

A modern MX5 weighs the same as the original 80s model. The original Toyota aygo from 2005 weighed only 890kg. Even the much more usable MK3 MX5 was only 1150kg with the power hard top.
Why is that an invalid argument?

4/20 was the birthday of Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the national-socialist German workers party. A fellow went by the name Adolf Hitler.But this guy.. there's a picture of him... Adolf Hitler..very compelling kind of a figure.. odd looking duck.. there's something about his eyes..hypnotic.His eyes are almost entirely black. He was a decorated veteran of WWI and he joined the...hold the fort..he hated Jews!

The piece of skull that's been sitting in a museum and was supposedly from the burnt corpse recently had a DNA test performed on it.
Its was from a female.

Need help on diagnosis and repair of my mom mobile 2012 automatic rav4. 120k miles and generally well maintained so far. Do all the basic maintenance myself.
The behavior is a a loud and tactile rumbling while in low (1500) rpms in 3rd gear or so, around the 35 to 45 mph range. Accelerating beyond this rpm, or simply releasing the accelerator will stop this behavior.
When this occurred I changed transmission fluid. Didn't work, so I added Lube guard and there was still no change. Didn't appear to be excessive wear or metal when changing fluid.
Some research leads me to believe this may be the torque converter. Ironically, the next few years after 2012 had a recall for this issue but not mine.
Called a tranny shop but the guy wasn't really willing to do much consultation on the phone and merely suggested a whole new tranny.
Any ideas on what else this could be? Any potentially fixes or bandaids? Can I just keep running it? Probably not worth a new tranny given the age and value of the car.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Yes, it appears that this is a similar, if not the same issue. This is the first I'm hearing that it may in fact be the rear differential instead of the transmission itself. My primary concern is whether or not I can keep driving this thing safely for a few more years or not. The audible and tactile "feel" of the problem would lead anyone with common sense to believe that it's a pretty major mechanical issue with some excessive wear occurring somewhere.
I have changed my driving habits while operating in the speed and gear this occurs in already, but maybe the change from D to 3 is easier.
>The behavior is a a loud and tactile rumbling while in low (1500) rpms in 3rd gear or so, around the 35 to 45 mph range. Accelerating beyond this rpm, or simply releasing the accelerator will stop this behavior.

Probably engine noise. Known as lugging. Just manually shift to keep the rpm over 2000. Also change the oil
Yes, I have been changing my driving behavior to avoid the issue.
I'm curious why the supposed engine lugging would occur only in the past couple thousand miles of the car's life. Obviously it's getting old, but the actual wear on the components is seemingly low given it's relatively low mileage my grandma like driving style. Is this a common issue?

I recently changed the oil too. Throughout the cars life it has had the recommended 0w20 full synthetic, and I don't think I've ever waited more than 7500 miles at max between changes.
How long ago did you change the tranny fluid? I've had a transmission clunking noise issue that didn't go away immediately upon changing the fluid, it tool a few thousand miles with the new fluid to go away.
It's been between one and two thousand miles. I went on a trip right after I changed the tranny fluid. Still no difference from before the change.

My catalytic converter was stolen while parked at a mechanics
They cut behind the flange and the guy repaired my shit for free but he just welded on a universal
Now I'm going to have to find a way to cut the pipe and clamp some connectors on that i picked up at vatozone
That sounds nice. How much is it going for?
1k obo. My options are that, 2k for a 222k mile k20a2 with trans, or hope this shortblock can be rebuilt. Car was never overheated, but low comp cyl 1 and 3. Assuming pistons are shot.

Americans are sadly to self-entitled and self-centered to have an autobahn.

They drive with their ego and pride in one hand and a cell phone in the other.

90% of them can't even do something simple as merge on the freeway correctly and none of them have any lane discipline.
