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

It's a mostly stock 2000 Celica GTS *cough cough* automatic. It's still fun, there's little shifty buttons so I've got that going for me which is nice. It's got some bits and baubles on it.

Thank you, it's just painted with Duplicolor Metalcast red over the original plastic chrome, but it fades in the sun after a few years. I just pull it off, chemically strip it, and re-paint it as needed.

I just don't get the trend of having the headlights go so far up the fender/hood, says the guy who's headlights go so far up the fender/hood. I mean if there were functional reasons for it, sure. On the Prius that projector does not require that much mounting depth, I've seen the bare units and they're the same size as must projectors, they'll fit into the area of a softball roughly, often even smaller than that, a little longer than tall or wide. All that plastic facing right up at the sun is going to haze up extra fast and make the car look super aged after only a few years if it's parked outside, maybe it's a conspiracy!

This looks fantastic, maybe my next car. Its electric too so you can't drive it long enough for it to break. 

I like it, but the steering wheel being a rectangle isn't going to be fun


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Its a concept, so I don't imagine it will make it. Maybe its meant to give the feel of a formula one car. 

I'm sure the target audience is the retired F1 drivers.

so you are telling me that this is only a tiny bit worse than the Lexus?

quite interesting at how high you rate the looks of the Prius :ph34r:

More like how low I rate the CT200h. It also feels smaller than a prius, I don't know how Toyota managed that.

I use larger oil filters too, but I use ones that are the same diameter, just longer.

couldnt find a longer XG7317 so I went for a XG3593A.. which was behind a bunch of filters on the shelf lol.

So I doubt i'll be able to use that every time. dont think those are used much.. some older (90's) hondas I think

 

I don't get why a huge 5.6L engine has such a small oil filter from the factory... I use 7317's on my miata as a tall size for peat sakes

I know what you mean, I sometimes have trouble finding 3600s too, seems like smaller and smaller filters are becoming the norm.
