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

Should've grabbed  another pic before I jetted off to work, but new motor is physically in the car and a couple bolts are in. 

 

This photo was take about 2 hours ago. Got busy wrenching and forgot to snap more. 20170827_152314.thumb.jpg.e0f95d4a478325e78789da869a80df79.jpg

@chaozbandit The zonda sounds amazing, the 760 series is a bit stubbier than I expected though xD

The huayra roadster looks amazing in person as well

Totally car related but I might be picking up a 2008 or 2009 Mac Pro soon....... only thing is I'd either have to have it shipped if they have the original box for it, which won't be cheap, or drive down to get it which would be about 200 bucks, but then I know the case feet won't get jacked up, and I could see my aunt and uncle for a day. Three day trip, new toy, and it might even be the 2.8 dual cpu 8 total cores model.... hmmmmmmmmm. I could probably get it cheap too. Ugh. they're so pretty and I could use it as my computer at my grandads. I'm putting a desk there soon too. They go for about 250 on ebay, I could probably talk him to 150. we'll see whats up. Probably even exchange some work for it.

 

Also greetings @JoaoPRSousa

how much are c2s?

 

Here in Portugal, C2 VTS's are about double of the 106's and Saxo's. 6 grand... :|

What kind of E60 did you have? Ours was 265hp...

 

520d. My brother wants to trade it for a 530d or something like that, he just hates the 4 cylinder. My father on the other hand, I don't think he wants to get rid of it...

You need an S4 B5 in your life. Trust me. 5000ish eur gets you a nice stage 2 S4. :D

 

5000€ get me a 1.8T.

S4's are almost inexistent here, and if one does appear, it would probably cost more than 12k...

Like the looks, absolutely hate the wheels.

Corvette engine on a Mustang. Hate when people swap engines from "rival" manufacturers.

Both Mister2010 and JoaoPRsousa do that periodically. All of a sudden the notifications will just go ballistic 

 

Just came back from the usual family vacation down in Algarve. And before that I went camping for 10 days for a summer music festival. Heard some pretty nice bands live. Foals, BadBadNotGood (they are absolutely amazing live), HO99O9 is amazing for the moshpits and such. Pretty neat.

Theyre pretty common here

 

I am moving to the UK in a few years, or at least I hope I get a job offer from up there. I so want to live there because Japan imports, and car scene and car modding is so much better than the Portuguese... :|

Hnng. Random fact about the Regera. What looks like the normal exhaust is just an exhaust for heat management. The actual exhaust is found in the middle of the rear diffuser as two vertical slits, one on either side.

 

Noticed that on Forza Horizon 3. At first I thought the game was bugged or something like that, but then I googled it and saw those fins... Weird.

Just saw the review of this thing

MK2 Twingo

And i'm like this for the entire review

 

I want it real bad. By far the best thing to come out of 2017. The Up! can go to hell. 

 

Rear engine, rear wheel drive hatchback. The short wheel base makes it a bit bad for drifting, but should be plenty fun.

Ryzen 1800x. Yay or Nay?

 

I say 1700.

Why are the grandstands so empty

 

IDK, most people here go straight to the paddocks. 5€ entry is almost nothing.

Yo @JoaoPRSousa where you at

 

On the other side of the freaking globe son.

 

 

Will be posting some pics of the 24h cars and some cars I spotted outside the track (beautiful 2nd gen Eclipse, very well done, not ricy at all) and such.

Sorry about the notification rape. This won't be the last one. I'm going "off the grid" again. Camping on the mountains, and then, another music festival xD
