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

first of, sorry if i interrupt a topic that is going on at the moment.

 

hey everybody. I am curious about the car you guys drove during your drivings lessons. Every country probably has different cars they use for drivings lessons. here in The Netherlands the VW polo is a very popular one and the Opel Astra is also one. But then there are some other kinds, let say more expensive ones. Such as the car i am driving for my drivers license. it is a Mercedes Benz Cla-amg. my drivingschool has 2 of those, as shown in the pictures. So i am curious what the populair drivings lessons cars are in your country and what the rare ones are. I am NOT meaning to brag about the car, just curious about the other ones. btw, we also have a ferarri in the north xD

I didn't take drivers Ed. But I learned on a 2003 Accord and my 2000 S10. Still drive the s10 and hope I keep it for a while. Time will tell.

Not CLA 45 AMG.

They probably are CLA 200s or some shit like that with the so called AMG PACK THAT GIVES IT 200 STYLE POINTS AND 200 EXTRA HORSEPOWER YO (AMG badge alone, 150hp+) xD

Believe me, they aren't 45 AMG's, unless the one you're driving isn't the one in this picture:

The exhaust tip alone gives it away ;)

We had Civics, I still maintain that they have one of the worst dashboards in history. It's utter shit.

like how bad? in the sentra, it's plastic all around. the only upside is that it had a touchscreen plus wheel mounted controls.

I don't care what the hell the interior is made of, I couldn't find the front of the freaking car with the dashboard.

 

THIS, is one of the dumbest designs ever if you're sitting in the seat like a normal person and not putting a couple phonebooks down to look over the top of the dash.

And the way everything slopes down immediately, useless.

 

I'm used to not being able to see the front of a vehicle (believe me I would know every day) but that was horrible, I always left too huge of a gap when parking because I couldn't even guess where the front bumper was.

 

Plus it just looks tacky tbh.

Good news again! Travis Pastrona is making the trip north with SRTUSA to compete in the Rally Tall Pines in two weeks time. 

 

@MEC-777

 

 

Also! Help me decide which diecast I'll add to my collection next! These are autoart 1:18 models.

He's been doing GRC with VW the past few years. For 2016 he committed to the full season of Rally America with SRT USA. He's was competing last year as well but commitments with nitro circus and whatnot. 

 

Roman Atwood was recently at his house too. 

 

So yes, things are still being did.

The overall design of the dash looks very similar to my Mazda 3. However, as mine is the base model, I've dramatically fewer buttons, and the designers were smart enough to keep the (much smaller)  clock/radio display off to the center instead of blocking your view. 

 

Still lots of plastic though.

Why?

Because racecar.

I would take the aston as well. Even though the 260z is a gorgeous car. 

Funnily enough 05-07 Astons usually go for about the same as a top condition S30 chassis car. 

 

On a sidenote. I may have decided on the Aston i'll get when i'm able

The V8 Vantage roadster

(Used astons can be had for as much as a specced out mini paceman over here)
