    Ugh. Why? That's rhetorical -- there is no logical reason to put that on your car. It isn't "cool", it is stupid, and you WILL get laughed at. Maybe not to your face, but it will happen.

    A thousand times, no.
    Nah everyone does it on my area.

    Oh dear.

    My brother's friend has put a 2.0L Redtop engine in his Corsa. He is 18. Not only is he too young and stupid to handle a vehicle of that power to weight ratio but I can tell he is going to kill someone with it. The modification, from what I have been told, has been done very poorly in such a way that the power steering system has been modified beyond all recognition.

    I've told my brother that I will be telling this guy's insurance company. I am pretty certain that they think it's just a standard corsa because no company with a shred of sense would let him on the road with that death trap. At least my brother has the sense not to get in it.

    No wonder we pay through the nose for insurance, fucking idiots. Heh, maybe I can get a reduction on my insurance for the tip off.

    His next project? Camber.

    Anyone know an alternative to craigslist for selling vehicles/other things?
    I haven't liked CL for a while, but today one of my ads got flagged and I'm unsure exactly why.
    I asked on the forum thing and a bunch of people started arguing with me.
    They said something about since it doesn't run, it should be in auto parts rather than cars/trucks, despite how I'm selling the whole vehicle along with the title.
    They also said I can't have links to a photobucket gallery in it, which seems odd because as of now I have ~12 ads running with links to photobucket galleries in them, and have had dozens of others and this is the only one that has ever been flagged.
    I reposted the ad before asking on the forum. When I clicked the ? by the thing that said it was flagged, it brought me to a page with all the top reasons posts get flagged and mine didn't fit in any of it

    Sometimes I wonder why the hell my foot has this tendency to floor it when I do something wrong. Maybe it's due to how aggressively I tend to drive.

    Cut someone at some stop signs yesterday, couldn't see jack shit in my passenger side window, thought it was my turn, there was nobody when I stopped, so when I engaged, someone was midway, cut them in front, as usual they tend to really stick to you, closely, and then my first reflex was instantly de-activating traction control, and flooring it, all I saw in my back window was dirty sand and snow flying in his windshield, him trying to keep up with me, but failing

    not really related to your post but i thought my friend was behind me so before i peeled out from the last stop before my house I turned on my 4way flashers, Blared on the horn on and off, slammed on and off of the brakes, and then mashed the throttle out of the turn.

    Then looked in my rear view while grinning and realized the crv behind me was red. (my friends crv is green)

    No, He's going to kill someone because he's an idiot. I went to college with him, he has no sense whatsoever.

    Case in point, he got it up to 70 in the college car park.

    I don't want him on the same roads anywhere NEAR me.

    Most insurers will invalidate the policy even if the car has been slightly lowered. I think that should (when) he crashes that Corsa, his insurers will invalidate his policy, which will lead to him being done for having no insurance too! That guy is a fool.

    Hmm, I'm not really sure how 'top speeds' are defined on cars. Mine is supposed to be 94mph, but i was going 80 the other day and still had at least another 3000 revs left until i red-lined, surely it could go faster then?

    Just curious, would probably never attempt it.
