Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 150k! ¯\_(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

almost sounds like the entire company was a cash grab to get SpaceX up and running.

I don't think so, Tesla was operating at too much of a loss for too long of a time to get a space program running. The Model 3 was supposed to be the car that makes Tesla money. With how much R&D that has gone into meeting the absurd production milestones set by Musk, it'll likely be sold at a loss as well initially. I really want Tesla to succeed. However, it seems like the walls are coming in on it. I was curious and looked up service centers for Tesla, the nearest is in sodo Seattle in a tiny shop. I'd like to talk to some of their techs about some things, but I imagine they're restrained by chain and ball like apple store techs are.

 

Shitty thing is, even the "safest" car on the road today would of likely killed the driver in the exact accident the tesla suffered. Hit an uncushioned jersey barrier.... thats gonna split any car in half.

that said... some of this is down to just the stock market not doing so hot anyway.

But Tesla has been overbought and overpriced for a long time now....They really are much smaller than they appear to be.

Yeah, extremely overbought. Tesla had a larger market cap than GM, making them the largest American automaker....

so I'm an idiot and I bought another NC :D 

basically didn't listen to any of my own advice... car doesn't start (although previous owner claims he had it started 2 times)... it was flooded, previous owner showed up about how high it went (assuming I believe him), it was about 4-5" up from the floor inside the car.  all the basic electrics work, windows, locks, blower motors and vents change...  the general condition of the car is better than mine... and its black interior and top :D 

right now the plan is to swap a 2.5 into it and swap over the mods from my car over to this.  if it turns out to have electrical issues, I'll swap over the black top and interior bits over to my current car and then sell that one as is again

pics are from the for sale ad, it parked at a friends house for now.  I just bought a duplex, gonna be moving in next month, gonna start working on it after that.

Broken engine? Electrical issues? 

THE SOLUTION IS HERE!

an ls will fix all your issues, heck with a turbo or blower it might even salvage a broken marriage.

I have been drooling over the new retractible fastback miatas, if im shoveling out cash for a car it'd have to be one of those in graphite gray. It would be super illegal but id love to turbo lsx with manual swap it too.

I mean its cool and all, but personally I'd rather just have something that already comes with an LS in it.  my miata is mostly a track car, so I don't really want anymore than about 230whp (even that might be pushing it).  but for a street car, bring on the power :D

True... Too much power is too much.

 

 

I mean, the ae86 is the perfect car, perfect amount of power, perfect engine, perfect gearbox, perfect suspension, etc.. like why did the automotive industry not just stick to that? :P

McCrap strut in the front and live axel in the back?  thats about as far away from a perfect suspension as you can get... engine isn't all the great either, most of them make like 120hp... but crazy built ones make like maybe 160...  it does have light weight though, it really has that going for it, and it's not a convertible...  (sorry to crap all over your perfect car... :ph34r:)

 

I wish there was a coupe version of the miata...

Your plan isn’t horrible at all tho... I don’t think it’ll cost you much over what the 2.5 swap will cost you in the first place.

 

In fact I think it’s a genius idea...

Hi! I had no idea you were still around.... that’s horrid news. I legitimately would cry  and probably be depressed for a while just because i couldnt drive a manual if that happened to me...I’m so sorry :(
