its a work in progress going to do some fun things to it
Just stay away from the stick-on stuff. IE those fake ass hood scoops that just stick on. For the love of pete at least cut your hood out so they do SOMETHING lol
Can I put pictures up of my scooter when I get it?
I was hoping to pass my driving test and get a punto or a cinquecento, something small, however Im pulling insurance quotes of £2000, and a 50cc scooter will cost £600 ish for the bike + insurance, its a no brainer really.
I'd like to get a bike as they're cheaper than cars and also cheaper to run. They're awesome, wouldn't get a scooter/moped though. My only option on a provisional license though is a Honda CBR125, 125cc engine. It's a small bike and isn't very fast. Not for a fat ass like me who is also 6' 4" lol. I really like the CBR600RR though, amazing looking bike and I bet it goes nice and fast too
Was lookin at RX-8 vids on YouTube, one was turbocharged. Mmm blowoff valve *
*I don't really know much about car mods, parts and all that, but like PCs, I'd like to because I'd most likely be customizing my cars Anyone care to shed light on what parts I'd need for a turbo and blowoff valve? Cos man, I love that hiss and a boost gauge looks awesome lol I wonder can you drift in a stock RX-8 lol, Flat Eric's (Irish drifer) AE86 Corolla is around 250bhp, same as the 6 speed RX-8 lol. Not too sure, but I think the RX-8 comes with a limited slip diff.
That CBR is a sweet bike. Definitely fast lol. Although at 6'4" u'd out-grow that bike in a year. I'm 160lb soaking wet and it's barely fast enough for me lol. My brother is a senior instructor/board member at a pretty big road racing school. Bastard gets a new bike every year to take home and 'get accustomed' to it
All I know about turbo is it gets hooked to the exhaust rather than the intake (supercharger)...and I know less about drifting lol
I drive on 02 Harley F150 with some bolt ons for about 13psi of boost and an 03 TT Cobra with a built stroker and GT35Rs. Theres some more pics of the build up here http://www.fquick.com/Hoss302.
This club needs revival. Time to say goodby to my precious Corsa soon It won't survive the winter with its motor age...
Mazda RX7 88
here is a front end pic
shes a droptop
lowered shes like 2" from the ground
That's a lot of KM. Anyone know what the limit would be for buying a used car KM wise? My mam has 12,000 on her car and it's just over a year old, she's not really happy about the idea of getting a car with like 45,000km on it even though it should be fine, business cars always have over 100k on them, is there any problems if a car has like 100,000km?
She doesn't want to get a car less than 2008 even though there's absolutely no reason not to, she sold a 2006 Skoda Octavia for a 2008 Skoda Octavia, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the 2006, 2008 is pretty much the same except the stereo and alarm aren't as good in the 2006 and probably had fuck all mileage on it.
I'm trying to get her to get a 2008 Lancer because that car is just a beauty.
She's not a big fan of getting a smaller car either like the Opel Astra, all she really needs is 4 door/5 door, a decent boot. Not a bloody huge car like the Octavia, the Lancer is actually bigger than the Octavia but that's a different story, the Lancer is pornographic, art on wheels.
She wanted a Civic but the Lancer is better spec, now she's looking at a Focus. She even called up a dealership about the Focus without consulting me. I had to practically beg her to put air in her tires after explaining to her they were one of the causes for her bad fuel economy.
2006 1.6 Impreza with the WRX body kit on it for around €15,000 and less than 50,000km and she probably won't even think about looking at it. I'm sick of that bloody Octavia, shitty piece of shit Czech car, Skoda to me are right up there with those shitty Korean cars like Hyundai and Kia, give me quality Japanese or European car any day.
That's why I want the Lancer so bad, besides the fact it looks amazing, it's a brand. Everyone knows Mitsubishi and it's a known name, Skoda is a cheapo car manufacturer and isn't going to turn heads.
Not only that, when I get a licence I'll be the one driving, I don't want to be seen driving a fucking Skoda, a Lancer on the other hand yes please.
I bought it with 170k 15 months ago. It was never intended to last longer than two years. I made over 40k km in a year, tell that your mom and her 12k
Anything under 80k is fine imho if you aren't driving that much (I drive minimum two hours a day, thats a lot) and you want your vehicle to last some years.
Dude- Damn nice car man!
I have a 2001 Mustang GT convt. along with several other toys
My Escort ZX2
Lousy American laws allowing kids to drive:shadedshu
