Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

I can see where you are coming from but personally I think the Austin A90 Atlantic looks more like the Saab 96 (at the front).

that'd be one of my worst fears... sitting on track around a big group on a fast section where it's hard to avoid hitting you. 

Glad everyone was alright.

Hey guys, finally decided to pop in here and announce myself and my car. 

Had her for a little over 3 weeks now, but the last time I came into this thread I hadn't got any good pictures of her. 

 

She's a 2001 Mazda MX-5, second gen and basically entirely stock. I definitely intend on getting better looking wheels, I don't like the look of them at all. 

Also a new head unit is on it's way, the FM radio is dodgy (have yet to fiddle with the antenna though) and there's not even an AUX in the standard head unit. 

 

Haven't got any interior pics, but it's the black and red leather combo. 

 

And yes that picture is unedited, I've disabled the master AI feature on my P20 Pro.

Cheers mate, as far as I'm aware it's its factory match, there's like 2 marks on the very back of it on the left, and chip just above the rear window, not sure how I'll flatten them out and make it look nice but right now it looks perfect from 2 metres or so.  

I assume from your profile pic you've got an SE? Was very much planning on getting one myself, but just ended up getting a stock NB8B.

I wouldn't even worry about it... no one notices those little things, the rest of your car is really clean.

I have an SE that was specific to the US I think... though you guys got stuff pretty close to it. it's a 2002 SE in Titanium Grey(they made about 1000 of these in that color, another 1000 in yellow). Pretty much had all options except the Bilstein shocks, though it came with the Hard-S springs which is a bit weird.

 

Had it for almost 3 years now, and I've almost put 40k miles on it since(just crossed 131k!). Mine has quite the story... it's on it's third (and best) engine. The first one died under the PO's ownership, supposedly an oil change accident. It was replaced with a crappy rebuilt one that died about a year after I bought it, I got a used JDM motor and ECU from that 160 edition they had in Japan, and swapped that in... I think I might be the only one in the US to have figured out how to make that work without a custom ECU lol...

Fun car :) Love it. It's in need of some serious suspension overhaul tho.

Quite an interesting history, TEIN Flex Z (and then above that MCA Blues, though they're an Aussie business) coilovers is what I see a lot of people suggesting when it comes to upgrading suspension. 

 

Bought mine a couple months ago from a dealership in South Australia, which is over 2,500km from me, sight unseen, only went off pictures from carsales. 

As such, I didn't get much of it's history, dealership didn't care even though they run a fairly niche JDM dealership, so don't know about anything that's been replaced that isn't regularly replaced, or obvious. It has got an engine dampener, and a K&N air filter, and once I get my open license in less than a years time the plan is to pop a supercharger on top.

At least you don't have to worry about finding ethanol free gas. My 07 is Flex fuel but my other two trucks don't like it. 

 

I've started using 100LL av gas in my TRX, ATC350X, lawn mower and old pulling tractor.

Are those even legal lol? Aren’t turn signals supposed to be amber or red... that’s the only two I’ve seen... from an OEM anyway
