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

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

That actually looks like a decent deal. I'd recommend picking up an extra grit guard and another bucket though, so you can use the two bucket method. Also maybe consider extra microfiber towels and some interior cleaner as well, a clean interior seems to get overlooked by a lot of people. 

 

I've never used most of those specific products, but Chemical Guys does have a pretty good reputation, so I wouldn't hesitate to try it. 

 

I really like that this kit includes the post wash (quick wax) spray, this is an awesome little trick to help protect the car with fairly low extra effort.

Seems like an acceptable deal, go for it.

Was also thinking about picking up the Foam gun but I'm not sure if it's worth the $42; if anything it's the best deal right now of the "quality" looking foam sprayers

I actually do have a second bucket already and some cleaning stuff, but my microfiber towels are relatively small. 

 

Do you use a foam sprayer at all?

I haven't taken the foam gun plunge yet, but plan to now that I have a pressure washer, and everything I've read basically says don't buy a foam gun that doesn't have brass fittings. The plastic ones just don't hold up very well. 

 

Again, I haven't had any personal experience with this yet, but just what I've been reading.

@TVwazhere

 

Now that I'm looking, if you want to spend $55 on a cleaning kit, and $42 on a foam gun, I'd just spring for the $100 kit with the brass foam cannon:

They have the $70 kit that has the plastic foam gun but it does seem to have brass fittings between the connection points. I'm not sure my pressure gun will take the brass version, but it looks like it already comes with a bottle.

That might work, unfortunately I haven't taken the foam gun plunge yet so I cant really talk from experience on this. 

 

Give it a go and report back so I can get more feedback before I buy one! ;)

Looks to me that the professional gun uses a standard quick release adapter, something my electric pressure washer does not have. 

 

I'm buying the Prime deal discounted one with the Garden hose foam gun. I probably wont wash my car as much as you (or as much as you tel me to ;) ) It doesn't come with the same products as the other deal, but they look close enough to me.

The wheel brush is a super useful addition in that kit. I use my wheel brush all the time for wheels, tires and wheel wells.

Well yeah, rotary project cars make sense. You'll never not be working on it. It's like owning a British classic.

Lol. Saw that. They wanted it to be dramatic but it wasn’t. 

 

Really I agree built to go fast miatas aren’t. They stick to the road like glue and are relatively easy to drive quickly 

 

unless you up the power. Power = drama lol

this 4Runner looks pretty decent, it was owned in PA until 2014.

imo as far as 3rd gen 4runners go, you should only spring for a limited model. and it's pretty fuckin hard just to find one under 200k; i mean i've seen one for sale that had 480k miles on original everything, and it was surprisingly clean. usually you can get by with a 2wd model too since those run a bit cheaper.

well I kinda want 4WD because one of these days I might supercharge it. I found out that Toyota made a supercharger for its engine so welp kek

apparently it's based off an Eaton M62.


I wanna stay under $5k so really, SR5 seems to be my only option.

335k on that limited o.o 

 

i think it's safe to say you probably won't find a 4runner with under 200k miles, if any.

Having driven a 2wd truck for most of the time i've been driving- yes you can get by in a 2wd. 

 

That being said- fuck having a 2wd. I almost got stuck on wet grass.
