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

Stroll is fine. Watch the race highlight if you want a good laugh. I don't think they're coming back to Mugello anytime soon...

 

I like Mugello so much

The race was an absolute shitshow tho :megaLUL:

Almost freaking done with this stupid trans cooler. Didn't have two odd size standard wrenches at home over the weekend for the fittings at the cooler.

Random question, but I figured some car guys might know. 

 

Any suggestings for good spray paint that doesn't chip on Metal? I need a paint a power supply that will be frequently moved around and scuffed up, and the generic Home depot stuff ain't working too well. Any ideas?

Rustoleum enamel works good BUT it takes a long time to fully dry before it gets hard. I accelerate that with some oven time so if you're comfortable stripping the PSU from the case (it's still deadly when unplugged) then that'll work well. I do around 250 for an hour then like 200 for a couple hours, let it cool, then thumbnail test it for hardness. When it's dried fully thumbnail should not leave a mark in it. If you're painting galvanized steel you'll need to prep it with a light scuff and a wipe with vinegar to etch the zinc a little so the paint will stick.

I cannot open up the power supply. I can however wait several days, so time shouldn't be a problem.

 

I'll pick up some Enamel then. Thanks for the suggestion!

If you're not accelerating it with heat plan on like a week. Setting it out in the sun or under a heat lamp will help. When I painted a decorative windmill that wouldn't fit in the oven I stuck it under a heat lamp for about 48 hours for each section front and back of the blades. Took about 2 weeks for the paint to fully harden.

A very short trip home in the TransAm.  Recently got a new power steering pump so I've been driving it.  But it turns out this pump is bad out of the box, you can hear it whine around 30-40 seconds.

 

Thats also when you hear me wind the engine out to 6800rpm for 2nd and almost in 3rd too.

 

Basically its got some of all its engine noises.  Some cold start in the car, some warm idle, mild throttle just cruising around, and two pulls, a 50-80mph pull in 2nd, and a 80-120 pull in 3rd.

 

Its hard to hold the camera and not have the vibrations destroy the image lol.  The vibrations come through the steering wheel pretty bad at times.  But man does it move out.

I just ordered a downpipe, a flange adapter, and a catalyst for my Baja. We'll see if I can fix my boost problem now...


Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? Yes? Then have you tried downloading more RAM?

Difference is now you can get compact SUV’s that can get 30 mpg on the highway so idk if that’ll still happen? Compact SUV’s are like economy cars now 

 

I mean yes you can get 40 mpg in a basic Jetta but who wants a basic Jetta? 

Hey, the new Jettas are nice looking, comfortable cars. I installed a JB4 tuner in my silk blue 2019 which increases the boost pressure. +35 hp and  +45 ft/lbs torque. It's no GLI or WRX, but it has some nice mid range pull now between 2500-4000 rpm. Still only around 180 hp, but has about 230 ft lbs of torque now for a car that weighs 2800lbs and cost $17k USD. I don't drag race anymore, but I'm sure I could give some of the new turbo civics and si's a run for their money. If I have the need to go fast, I hop on my Indian Scout 😃

The RS200 is one of the cars that I would give just about anything to drive, much less own.

 

Then again, I feel the same way about the Ferrari F40... I want a black one. :D

No this is a completely different car. Painted and modified in Japan where it lived since 1998.

Check it out dudes, managed to snag a hard top for my 92 Miata, and for a "decent" price as well. Probably doubled the value of the car. But, shes come a long way since when I bought it back in April or March!

So my mom just recently paid off her Toyota Corolla and this early morning some idiot rear ended it because he fell asleep at the wheel. I woke up at the crack of dawn to pick her up and drive her to work. Corolla is obviously fixable but now salvaged. It makes me wish I had leased my car like my brother did with his Optima. And makes me want a dash cam for the back window too.


 

:(

I decided to sell or trade in my Subaru. If it wasn't a complete pile, and I was going to keep it, this would have been my plan. Dashcam up front, dashcam in the rear, and possibly a third pointing at the driver's seat (in case it got stolen or broken into).

 

Since I'm getting rid of it, I don't really care that much about it anymore.

I feel a lot safer with my dashcam, not because I'm going to catch someone doing something bad, but because in a He-said, She-said if a cop looks at the person with a normal car, and then they look at my Focus ST and see that's its decently modified, I'm worried the Cop will find me the one at fault.
