  1. One of my friends also has a Corolla and the wheel gap looks just like when mine was stock. According to my dad, the car's never had the springs replaced, but I've always thought it was odd that the Corolla had such strange wheel fitment. Nearly every new car I see on the road today has the same wheel fitment as mine, even though I have 2 inch lowering springs with enough room to drop it another inch...
  2. Was looking through some old photos, and I realized just how ridiculous the wheel gap on the Corolla was before I got lowering springs, almost looked like the thing was ready for offroading! Before: After:
  3. I was out collecting data with the Corolla today and as I was adjusting tire pressures, I noticed that the engine would start making a knocking sound for about 2 seconds before the radiator fan turned on. I'd say it sounded similar to the shuddering noise an engine makes when it's about to stall at low rpms. Does anybody know what might be causing this, or if it's a sign of something going bad? I'll try to post a video of it tomorrow if I have time.
  4. I've always thought it would be awesome to turbocharge the Corolla, but I'll have nowhere near enough money to do it until after I finish college. What parts of the engine break when you give it too much boost? The main parts I think of are the con rods from higher cylinder pressure and pistons melting or having detonation due to a possibly leaned-out AFR. Is there anything else I'm forgetting?
  5. In my experience, having an unactivated copy of Windows 10 doesn't affect the functionality at all. What customization options are you looking for? You can still change the desktop background by right clicking on an image file, and there's not much else I've seen in the way of customization.
  6. I would just get a single 256GB M.2 drive, since the speed benefits offered by Raid 0 don't have as much of a noticeable impact when used with SSDs that are already very fast. The RAM looks good, but are you sure you need 32GB? You'd be able to reduce costs a bit if you decide to go with 16GB instead.
  7. No, only one operating system will load. If you try to access files from the hard drive then it should act like any regular storage device.
  8. Just picked up Assetto Corsa and Dirt Rally 2.0 on Steam as part of their Autumn sale, they're 5 and 18 dollars respectively if anybody else is interested in them. I've been eyeing them for a while but they've always been a bit too expensive when not on sale, so I'm pretty excited to try them out!
  9. Picked up a Logitech G29 from Best Buy on their Black Friday sale, and I absolutely love it. I've been playing Project Cars 2 with it for a couple days and it's so addicting; does anybody else on here play PC2?
  10. I'm finally getting around to fixing the paint on the Corolla, just sticking to redoing some of the clear coat for now as a (sort of) quick fix. I've been playing around with the idea of doing a vinyl wrap though... that would probably look pretty cool.
  11. I'm doing a physics investigation for school on how different tire pressures affect the amount of frictional forces generated inside the tires, and I'll be driving on a short, straight road with very little traffic to record my data. I was wondering though, what tire pressures would be considered "safe" to drive on for these short tests? Maybe 15 to 40psi?
  12. Saw a Ford GT irl for the first time today, and right in front of me no less
  13. I drive a 2004 Toyota Corolla with a manual transmission, and I love it. Stop and start traffic, which is one of the most common reasons I hear for people not liking to use manuals, isn't bothersome to me at all. My first car had an auto trans, but I started learning to drive stick about a month after I got my learner's permit. I live in the USA if that makes any difference.
  14. I was looking through some of the photos I took at some car meets over the summer, and I saw that the NSX in this pic had what looked like a welded metal front splitter. I'm just curious, how would having such a thick and heavy splitter affect it's functionality, compared to one made of carbon fiber?
