during the early morning backroad skid sessions with friends, what are some tools i can use to be aware of police activity and additionally check for hidden cameras before conducting mischief. do not suggest waze, it is not useful for this situation. australian friendly suggestions preferred.

i understand no face, no plate, no case but the ramifications for doing so are worse than doing a single pegger

Oh and all speed limits have been dropped significantly
All of those advances in tyre technology, autonomous braking, road design, etc - everything is turning into a 60kmh zone, and everything metro they're pushing for 20kmh (if they allow cars at all)

Don't give up your guns
Yeah, drifting on Forza cuck
Yeah you've summed it up perfectly, it's completely over.
I heard that cops in qld set up a sting near a racetrack and proceeded to pull over and defect cars that were entering and leaving the track.
Yeah, that happens regularly

To be fair, there's usually some cunt that starts doing burn outs - normally in the shittest, cheapest car

I'm just salty that cops target modified cars when in my experience they're generally amongst the better condition cars on the road.
The pod filter rule that was have is obscene, so are adjustable coil overs being illegal. Yeah, my 200k stock struts are a ok, but brand new comfort valved aussie made coil overs are illegal because you can lower the car a bit?
Now that modified cars have been basically going extinct the next target this nanny state is cracking down on are 4wd cucks, I've seen cops patrolling trails and starting to defect them

The 3406 is probably the best choice, those things will do 1 million miles with regular servicing.
The application is a tracked machine of maybe 10-15 tons, hydrostatic transmission. Power would be nice to keep it rolling over rough terrain once it's accelerated.
Probably new. IH came onto the diesel scene, VERY late in the game. Even in the early '60s, instead of going diesel, they modded the 345 gas cylinder thickness and pushed the 392 gasser as a large truck engine and later went to the MV404. When the company finally wound down their light-duty division, in '80, they didn't even have a small diesel to put in the Scout - they had to source a Nissan TD.

Stupid questions that dont deserve their own thread general

Ill start:
I have an e92 335i with n54 engine and its getting to a mileage where im going to have to put a lot of money and work into it to keep it running. My question is if it would be smarter to just spend the money to get it to a point where its reliable again or sell it and get something like an e36 M3 or maybe an e46 M3 and put the money and work into that instead. I do like the N54 engine a lot but I personally just prefer the overall look of the wider fenders of the M3 models.

It's a naturally aspirated 2.5L inline four with a traditional automatic transmission. On god, if mazda knows something it's making inline four engines.
My wife owns a 2022. They are boring though but so is a Camry.
Is the turbo model considerably worse reliability wise?

How many bags of groceries can you fit in the trunk of a soft top ND2 Miata?
earlier today I was working under the steering wheel area on my truck and noticed it looked like 1 of the rear center dome lights (map light) between the front seats was out so I started playing with the buttons but it was really just the viewing angle, they're fine

i came back just now and saw those lights were still on even though i'd closed up and locked the truck a few hours ago, and made sure i reset the "dial" switch thing that you can use to force the interior lights on (truck is on a charger so the battery is fine)

all the other interior lights go out as they should after 15 seconds or whatever, i played with the switches on the light but all they do is adjust between high and low brightness, there is no override switch like in most vehicles where you can set a dome light to not come on etc.

for now i have just pulled the bulbs
there's no door ajar light etc., as i said all the other lights go out as they should when they should
it's E238 on the schematic

what am i not understanding? i looked it up and i'm not seeing anyone else with this exact issue or info on how to force the map light off

You can get htem from cheap dailies with diesels or more powerful inline 6's. For fucks sake you even have the choice between an amazing TT i6 with pretty insane potential or a high revving v8. Im still shocked that people are sleeping on these. The v8's are going up in price already so who knows for how much longer the N54 ones will be available.

145hp (bumps to 190 if you take out the horrible restrictive catalytic converter) and 240 lbs-ft of torque, thank you very much
A Caprice wagon unless it was totally empty and had nothing but the driver inside could hardly even get up a hill with the AC on.
V6 cars used a 200r4 transmission.
it's way weaker than a 700r4.
The 305's problem is a bore size that's small enough to shroud the valves and affects airflow all the way through the rpm range. Yes, the engine responds to mods and may even feel pretty good. Until you drive an equivalent 350 that is.
By that time the 350 in passenger cars was limited to the Corvette and police spec Caprices.

how much hp/liter should an engine be making to not be considered high strung and stressed?

my engine is currently making 70hp / liter NA. Will this be realiable long term or is it too high?
24 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Also B16A, B16B and the Toyota 2ZZ-GE
Air cooled naturally aspirated engines can easily produce 90 hp / liter and be very reliable.
Passing smog regulations is the real problem.
Patrician Tier 20hp/liter reporting in. 85lb-ft/liter can pull a house from its foundation. Cummins STRONK.
I would say at least a horsepower per cubic inch is the bare minimum, you couldn't get that in the Malaise era.
How much power your engine can handle depends on how well it was designed.

Yup I’m thinkin based
how much is it a month for that porsche abomination?

I'm addicted to abusing rental whores--I mean cars.

If the finances make sense, I wouldn't mind driving something for 6 months, not worrying about oil change or tires or anything, and throwing that shit back to Carmax/Carvana/Hertz/Goycorp at the end.

That way I wouldn't have an autistic seizure about rock chips or door dings and can function in society and park at grocery stores and such with the rest of society too.
Apparently when "your" car gets wrecked the leasing company gets money from insurance and you still have to pay all remaining payments

2200 RPM @ 65 mph in 5th gear. It is annoying, I put slightly less gas and the car immediately slows down to 50 mph.
It doesn't need to though, if you have optimal gear ratios.
