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

Guys guys guys. This volvo:

 

Super-Amazon-01.jpg

 

is for sale! For ~$41K USD, you too can own this 750HP BMW V8 single turbo Gatebil monster! Donor car is a Volvo Amazon, though most of the body panel is fiberglass and has been gutted for a tube chassis. Power reaches the ground via a GTR R32 AWD system, legendary for it's ability to route power as a RWD or AWD car.

Doubt it's a phone, more like a tablet unless it's a Note or something.

Some aftermarket ECUs have pretty extensive mobile apps, in case you don`t want to pay extra for a Racepak digital unit or aren't using the full Motec system.

 

But yes I agree it does look weird. He could have at least used a Nexus 7 :P

 

Edit: the Amazon uses a "Samsung GALAXY Note II running a MaxxECU digital display"

You guys were talking about police in your area so...

California police - they drive conspicuously in the right lane of the freeway in traffic and pull people over by just popping up on them. So every 15-20 minutes you drive past someone who has been pulled over.

Meanwhile in Calgary, Canada... freeway cops are basically "drive as fast as you want as long as you're not causing wrecks or inconvenience to others, we'll be at Tim Horton's if you need us"

 

This is basically a Sunday drive for us on the Canadian autobahn...

Aaaand there's nothing I really like about it. Not that comfortable for me, power is meh, gas mileage is awful and requires premium... selling it and buying a $500 Corolla that a friend is selling me, and putting the rest of the money in my pocket for other more useful things.

 

@Bubblewhale likes them though so tag him in this nonsense

Also @thekeemo it was only $1000 cheaper then what I sold the Equinox for, which was pretty much negated by the amount of money I put in it to fix the bearings, so yeah, most regretful decision I've made in a while

well damn. Chances are its horrible in winter too.

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

It's probably better tbh, the tires aren't bald like the ones on the Equinox were, and it's also AWD.

would you trade a '99 maxima fully loaded for it? Near new winter tires on it and new brake disks new suspension too.

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

You obviuosly don't have bonds with your cars. You wouldn't know how it would feel if your car that you dumped thousands of dollars were to be stolen, and then worst case scenario, your car would be totally gutted. if it were me, it would totally shatter my heart.

There's a difference between having a bond and learning to let something go because it doesn't fucking matter it's just a car at the end of the day.

What do you guys think about the next NFS?

I honestly just want more customization and louder engine revs, and less cop chases that are way too easy to win

But EA will most probably f**k it up

And the always online is complete s**t
