I'm a bit late but here's some photos from when I went to the track a couple weeks ago

F40

They invited ferrari owners for the day, this is what it looked like at the VIP lot, there was a couple other lots but this one had the most/better cars
#18060 to #18059 - jorgethemaster (5 hours ago) [-]
1/3 LaFerrari's that were there
#18061 to #18060 - jorgethemaster (5 hours ago) [-]
Way too lazy to rotate, if you want any of these as like a wallpaper or something lemme kno and I can edit them for you

The Enzo waving at me [:
#18063 to #18062 - jorgethemaster (5 hours ago) [-]
I'll end off with this 599xx, easily the loudest ferrari I've ever heard, it made the Laf sound like a tesla

If you wanna use any of my pics for anything go for it but please give me credit, I don't want to start watermarking photos (I'm not gud enough yet anyways) because I think it ruins pics

Is this the most awesome type of car door ever made or not? Discuss
User avatar #18066 to #18045 - ilikethisusername ONLINE (41 minutes ago) [-]
where the fuck does the door disappear to? like what happened to it? how does this even work. does the window glass bend along with the door and go underneath the car? what the fuck?
User avatar #18047 to #18045 - blueboysixnine (10 hours ago) [-]
Fun gimmick but not practical
#18048 to #18047 - lotengo (9 hours ago) [-]
Its great for parking in a narrow spot.
But why are almost all the car doors the same type?
Why are there so few suicide doors?
User avatar #18053 to #18048 - apurpleliger (7 hours ago) [-]
Suicide doors just aren't that useful. Extended cab pickups have them because they're barely longer than single cabs so they don't need to add in that extra support pillar. Same with the RX8. Anything longer than that and you're sacrificing a lot of structural integrity just for style. Also the whole "open at speed and you lost your door" thing. There might be a few specific contexts that a suicide door might be easier to get into, but not enough to justify it for most companies.
User avatar #18052 to #18048 - alicorn (7 hours ago) [-]
they don't fo doors like that much anymore for a reason
User avatar #18051 to #18048 - jorgethemaster (8 hours ago) [-]
I saw a riced truck with suicide doors a week ago at a car meet
It was terrible
Had pink accents too
User avatar #18049 to #18048 - blueboysixnine (9 hours ago) [-]
Yeah but it would increase the weight of the car way too much and probably a structural nightmare

As for the suicide doors, going off your example there if people wanted to get in the front and the back at the same time both doors create a sealed square between it and the car next to it, only one person can get in at once. Even if there is no car next to you, if front goes to shut the door while rear (or vice verca) is still getting in from that position it the door may hit them. Both doors opening the same way acts as a kind of shield from whatever the other is doing.
Not to mention the fact theyre called "suicide doors" and the reason behind the name

So i have a 97' 318i E36
it has plastic headlights
I was wondering if its even possible to open them up and install angel eyes
I know the glass headlights do work, but im wondering about plastic ones
User avatar #18040 to #18038 - lotengo (14 hours ago) [-]
Had to look up what you are talking about.

But why would it not work?
User avatar #18042 to #18040 - mexicandudeinsd (14 hours ago) [-]
idk had a friend talking shit
so i just wanna make sure before i fuck anything up and see if he is just talking random shit or knows his stuff
User avatar #18056 to #18042 - malkovo (6 hours ago) [-]
i think you should just get some used headlights made of glass, looks better than plastic from what i've seen
User avatar #18043 to #18042 - lotengo (14 hours ago) [-]
If it fits you should give it a try. I honestly dont know anything about this stuff, but its not like you are fucking with the engine or the brakes.

Just see how it looks, maybe drive a few blocks close to your house to make sure it all works.
User avatar #18044 to #18043 - lotengo (14 hours ago) [-]

Less idiots driving around sounds good to me. And it'd be nice for long boring road trips.
User avatar #18036 to #18035 - mexicandudeinsd (14 hours ago) [-]

My friend has a 3000GT and it isn't that bad and is relatively fast

If you get that particular one please take off the dumb stripe

It doesn't look that bad on your bimmer but on the 3000gt it just looks weird :|

id love to get a 3000gt vr-4 but nobody is selling one in the area and if they were it be too expensive for me
User avatar #18022 to #18020 - shedinja (08/03/2015) [-]
Never buy a 3000gt that's not 4wd
User avatar #18023 to #18022 - MrMysteriousMagic (08/03/2015) [-]
any reason?

Well I'm gonna need a new car in about 6 months. I've got no money right now and I can't sell the P71 It's literally wortless
Probably gonna put away some extra money with each paycheck and have about 5k by the time I'll need it
What should I get? I need something good on gas and with enough legroom. I was thinking a SHO or Fusion
User avatar #18014 to #18012 - fukkentyranitar (08/02/2015) [-]
Don't bother with the SHO. They're reliability is questionable at best. Just get a Fusion V6 or camry. Only thing you really have to worry about is oil changes and gas. Most midsize V6 sedans after 2006 deceptively quick and still pretty good on gas.
User avatar #18015 to #18014 - nigalthornberry (08/03/2015) [-]
I've driven a camry before and it just doesn't fit right. Feels too cheap.
Think I can get a newer body fusion for about 8k?
User avatar #18016 to #18015 - fukkentyranitar (08/03/2015) [-]
With high mileage, sure. But you might as well get an 07-09 with the v6 for the same cash and less milleage. You'd probably get a 4 cyl for less than 10k if its the newer one you want.
User avatar #18017 to #18016 - nigalthornberry (08/03/2015) [-]
I like the styling of both but I feel like the front end of the 2013 looks better (08 rear end looks nice as fuck tho)
After doing a little searching I found a 2013 1.8l manual for 8k. Has heated sweats which is nice for the winter, just won't be putting down too much power
User avatar #18007 to #18006 - firehippie (08/02/2015) [-]
never thought I'd see one of these for sale. less then 6000 two door fastback century's were made in 41. even less with the dual carbs. I wonder how much that car is really worth.
User avatar #18010 to #18007 - shedinja (08/02/2015) [-]
Keep an eye on it, 4 days left. On the last day the price is probably gonna quadruple
#18000 - multiplegermans (08/02/2015) [-]
So I went to my first car meet today. It was pretty cool although I got there late and missed a bunch of other cars.
User avatar #18003 to #18000 - jorgethemaster (08/02/2015) [-]
Gt3 or Aero package?
#18004 to #18003 - multiplegermans (08/02/2015) [-]
Just the aero package
#18001 to #18000 - multiplegermans (08/02/2015) [-]
Lost the front picture of the r33 but it's one of the few fully legal ones in Houston
User avatar #18009 to #18001 - shedinja (08/02/2015) [-]
If i'm not mistaken before the crack down you could import non butchered r33s into merica depending on what year it is, this might be one of them

99 murc cougar
v6 durtech motor
front wheel drfve
Not much to it but room to improve
this is a car you can turn into a great track car.
no room for a super charger so you'll either have to cut the hood or put a small turbo but with the v6 exhaust there's room to improve the bore and some larger cams would go a long ways for this.
and maybe a drive train swap to a AWD but that's a massive long shot.
trans is automatic but i can drop that real quick and replace it with a old 95 camaro or mustang manual with a simple convet setup.
then just some body work and she'll float on the track.

whatcha think?
User avatar #17993 to #17948 - fukkentyranitar (08/01/2015) [-]
Duratec V6's sound absolutely disgusting (in a good way) with a straight pipe kit.

Buick regal is faster.

As a daily driver, it would suck. It's a perfect track toy.

I'd put a 4.6 in if possible just cause v8
Cougars are good projects but you gotta make a good plan before going in
Does it have the 4r70w?
User avatar #17955 to #17951 - insaneflame (07/31/2015) [-]
not its a front wheel drive so it doesn't have the drive train needed but i plan on putting one in inorder to convert to manual and it'll be useful for the drive train swap. so basically if i do one i have to do the other.
#17997 to #17955 - lastone (08/01/2015) [-]
use the 4.6 from a lincoln continental

what should i do about this squeaky muffler bearing?

what about my headlight fluid i dont see a refill opening anywhere
User avatar #17971 to #17970 - mechanicexplain (08/01/2015) [-]
Through the turn signal. Make sure to ask for an applicator, or it's a pain.
#17973 to #17971 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (08/01/2015) [-]
engine for reference
User avatar #17972 to #17971 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (08/01/2015) [-]
ok but for real lets see if your actually good
my engine started sounding like a tractor after doin a small burnout like it was dead on a couple cylinders wat do

Actual hard misfire, or timing issue?

Recent build, or broken in?

built in 83 and its lived a 1/4mile at a time since
User avatar #17979 to #17978 - mechanicexplain (08/01/2015) [-]
Pop the valve covers off and give the rocker arms and push rods a look over to make sure everything is still in place. Loud, diesel-like noise without catastrophic failure is usually a valve train issue.
User avatar #17981 to #17979 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (08/01/2015) [-]
come on keep goin buddy youve almost arrived at the right answer

Diagnosis is not something I can do over the internet. The best I can do without eyes on is guess.

I need to know how to empty the fuel tank on a 2008 Yaris, or how to siphon it.
User avatar #17918 to #17917 - nigalthornberry (07/31/2015) [-]
2 ways
Cut hole in tank
Stick tube down hole and create sucking pressure on other end
User avatar #17919 to #17918 - theplanetearth (07/31/2015) [-]
I can't get the siphon into the tank. Something's blocking it.
User avatar #17920 to #17919 - nigalthornberry (07/31/2015) [-]
I'm assuming here but it's probably capless and has a little piece of metal in place. Just get a screw driver and push it down while you slip the hose in
User avatar #17923 to #17920 - theplanetearth (07/31/2015) [-]
Can you find out if there is some kind of release valve or some other way of getting the fuel out of a yaris?
User avatar #17933 to #17923 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/31/2015) [-]
just go in through the vent tube it should be right next to the fill tube just disconnect it from the body side and siphon away but youll need a smaller hose and park the car where you can get a couple feet below the gas tank
User avatar #17927 to #17923 - songemot (07/31/2015) [-]
Even my car, a 93, can't be siphoned through the fill port. I had to disconnect the hose from the port to the tank, and go directly into the tank through there.

If your fuel pump is accessible from inside the vehicle, you might be able to remove it and siphon the gas through there.
