Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Go to solution Solved by techswede,

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

so here's something i wanna ask.

 

what's final drive? i have no clue what it is.

it's also called the axle ratio I believe. It's what the ratio of the differential is outputting to the rear(or front!) wheels. Im sure you know what a differential is, but all of them have gears and gears have ratio's.

 

That is a very very down to earth explanation off the top of my head. 

 

 

 

 

protege actually doesn't actually that tall of gears.

 

first to fifth and final drive.

3.416:1
1.842:1
1.290:1
0.972:1
0.775:1
3.850:1

 

My car with the manual (5 speed) is:

 

3.166:1

1.904:1

1.310:1

0.885:1

0.725:1

Final: 3.722

 

Interesting. First, fourth, and fifth are longer in the corolla, the final drive is also a bit longer. Still think yours wins. 

 

I honestly like the protege more in almost every way. Just isn't as reliable and the motor isn't as strong. But look at us comparing economy cars lol

wait, how is it not reliable? ours is still running strong after 250k of commuting. and yeah, i know the motor isn't as strong, i heard it can only handle like 180 before it can start throwing rods and shit. i already knew that. but it's not unreliable.

I believe yours is shorter rather than longer. I thought short was a smaller ratio, like 2.6:1 and tall would be in this case, 3.7. I've got 3.55s in my axel so it would be a bit (shorter?) than yours? Is this terminology correct?

Lower number = longer

 

notice how the ratio's DECREASE as you go up the gears. This means lower number is a longer gear.

I always have to stop and think when I talk about ratio's lol

well if the motor isn't as strong and I drive it like I drive my car, it will likely be the first to blow up. That is what turns me away from it. 

For most people it's probably fine, but I put quite a bit of demand on my cars.

 

I mean im at redline minimum twice a week. Sometimes multiple times a day every day. Don't hold it there but still.. that is killer on rods lol

Well, I've decided it's about time I leave the forum, and in turn that means I won't be around this thread anymore. As someone who had a helping hand in making this thread ( :P), and who's been here since @techswede made it almost a year ago (less than one more week until the one year anniversary!), it's been crazy seeing this thing grow. It's pretty cool seeing how cars can pull so many different people together, and especially on a forum dedicated to computers. I don't wanna write a super long goodbye letter/sob story thing or whatever, so I'll leave it at that. I had fun talking to you all about cars. As a final parting gift, here are some for all of you. Sorry if I didn't get everyone, it's been a while since I've been really into this thread, and it's still growing, so there are a few new faces I don't really know..

Wow that is a huge jump between first and second. Should of been a 6 speed :P

But still better than my Corolla lol. I haven't seen a single thing that is worse from the same period yet, except the A131L, which was the base 3 speed AT. Makes me want to throw up thinking about it

yeah lol... 1ZZ-FE 125hp/125ft-lbs torque and here are the gear ratios:

 

1st: 3.643:1

2nd: 2.008:1

3rd: 1.296:1

4th: 0.892:1

Final: 2.655

 

 

Super LOOOOONG. You would need like 300 hp to have fun with that gearing lol.. But that would blow up the transmission lel (probably, I could be wrong). 

 

Not to mention it had 165K miles at the time of the video. Well taken care of and literally outputting as much as it possibly can since I've done everything under the sun to give it the best chance, but still im sure it's missing at least a couple horses.

 

If your curious about my tires, Im running 185/65R14 General Altimax RT43's pahahaha. aka the worst tire for this I think anyone has tried. Maybe not. 

 

@vinyldash303 there's your gearing lol

 

yeah I guess the wheelspin doesnt mean much, perhaps that is why no one told me anything about it while I was there. But I'll try to be more gentle so as not to destroy the tires too much anyway. I also think my tire pressure was a little too high that day. Going to try something a bit lower next time. But I doubt that will make too much of a difference. I have till March (maybe even April if I decide to just go with my friend in the mustang again) to do whatever so I guess ill see. Don't want to invest too much into the car like I said. It was really only a cheap car for me to daily and learn how to drive with lol, next time ill get something better. At the least a manual transmission with shorter gearing...

 

So I know you said you don't wanna spend money on this car, but if you can swing it I'd recommend wheels/tires. While tires are a consumable, wheels typically have great resale value (or you might be able to use them on your next car too), especially if you buy used in the first place. And you don't have to go with anything crazy sticky either, mainly something with a lower profile so you don't get as much tire roll over. In fact I wouldn't recommend really sticky for a new driver, it masks mistakes and slows down your learning curve. I'm willing to bet a lot of your understeer is coming from tire roll over since your sidewall is so tall.

 

well if the motor isn't as strong and I drive it like I drive my car, it will likely be the first to blow up. That is what turns me away from it. 

For most people it's probably fine, but I put quite a bit of demand on my cars.

 

I mean im at redline minimum twice a week. Sometimes multiple times a day every day. Don't hold it there but still.. that is killer on rods lol

Hahaha, twice a week??? For me it's like minimum twice every time I drive... Doesn't even matter what I'm driving... Except if the car is really slow and takes forever to get to redline... I get bored a give up

Sorry, you don't post in the Car Thread enough for me to know what kind of cars you like :P That V8 swapped E46 will be sweet when you do it though. And keep on posting your pics to flickr, they're dope.

Have fun with your bagged M5 when you get it. You may get some hate for it, but just do you. You'll love it :)

Take care y'all. PM me if you wanna exchange contacts or whatever. Have fun and drive safe. And no more Wagon or Stance Wars, please.. We're all car people. Respect other's opinions. And be nicer to Terry, he can be okay sometimes :D Anyways, I'm rambling now. Peace.

*takes off hat*

Have fun where you'll be at next...

Wow that is a huge jump between first and second. Should of been a 6 speed :P

But still better than my Corolla lol. I haven't seen a single thing that is worse from the same period yet, except the A131L, which was the base 3 speed AT. Makes me want to throw up thinking about it

I got distracted last night after looking at the ratios and found out these cars have a common issue with blowing up clutches. Part of me thinks its the stock motor mounts that makes people ride the clutch too much. I only had my stock motor mount for like 4.5k miles. Its easy to ride the clutch too much with the stock mounts otherwise the start will be really jerky. 

 

Of course I take that with a grain of salt... because everybody that said they blew up a clutch always had to have the addendum of "I've been driving manual for 50 years!" and proceeded to list off every manual car they've owned and how they were on OEM clutches for 175k miles each. Lots of posters on mazda forums say its a really difficult car to drive. This is my first manual and I'd agree... its easy to give it too much gas and have it "jump" at a start.

 

However maybe its a sign to trade up to a non ford mazda.

All its going to do is get you ready for more mods and maybe increase throttle response a tad. Have you done the throttle blade mod yet? Also how long has it been sense you've done plugs and cap/rotor?

The throttle blade mod would make a LOT bigger difference than a CAI. I used to be a big fan of CAI's and K&N filters. Back in school my instructor said they kill engines and I thought he was crazy... until I saw some in the trade. They let gritty pieces of dirt through. Seen some that you pull off the intake tube and run your finger around it and its like oily sand in there. All that crap going into your engine...

Well, I've decided it's about time I leave the forum, and in turn that means I won't be around this thread anymore. As someone who had a helping hand in making this thread ( :P), and who's been here since @techswede made it almost a year ago (less than one more week until the one year anniversary!), it's been crazy seeing this thing grow. It's pretty cool seeing how cars can pull so many different people together, and especially on a forum dedicated to computers. I don't wanna write a super long goodbye letter/sob story thing or whatever, so I'll leave it at that. I had fun talking to you all about cars. As a final parting gift, here are some for all of you. Sorry if I didn't get everyone, it's been a while since I've been really into this thread, and it's still growing, so there are a few new faces I don't really know..

Take care y'all. PM me if you wanna exchange contacts or whatever. Have fun and drive safe. And no more Wagon or Stance Wars, please.. We're all car people. Respect other's opinions. And be nicer to Terry, he can be okay sometimes :D Anyways, I'm rambling now. Peace.

 

You're making me all sad now. Tell me who I'm suppose to insult everyday via PM's ? :D I never imagined that I could call somebody I never met my friend. :)
