    If I recall correctly its from Record of Agarest wars

    You don't need to be rich to own an Impreza and an Evo.

    In this day and age I'd say owning a V8 requires you to be richer than owning an Impreza or an Evo

    Hey guys I need to learn how to use a manual transmission for my future muscle car. Anyway since there isn't a single car rental place with cars with a manual transmission; does anyone know a cheap brand of car that would have a manual transmission and is common?

    Most cheap cars can have manual transmissions. Just go to the rental place and ask for a car with a manual.

    Woops I made a typo I mean't to say that there isn't any rental place around here that has cars with a manual. I heard it has to do with rental car palces being afraid of people burning out the clutches or something.

    Have you tried racing sims?

    It would be a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a car just to learn manual.

    For $250-700 for a wheel, pedals, and shifter, it's pretty damn close.

    Been sitting in my truck, trying to figure out where i can squeeze in a tachometer and an analog clock...

    May trim the gauge cluster up some to fit a tach on the right and a clock on the left.
    Want it to look classy, not having a giant tach in my face on the dash like.

    Also may put a clock up on the ceiling if i can find/get one made in the right shape.

    blew my mind, why did i not think of that.

    SO, how easy is it to break a tachometer off of your hood with a tree branch while 4wheeling?

    It depends on what you mean.
    The handling physics on legitimate simulation software is pretty realistic, but the peripherals are never going to feel 100% right.

    People think theyre slick with their little paddle shifting steering wheels hooked up to their computers doing this virtual racing but Id like to see them hop in a racecar with a 6 lb flywheel, twin-disk un-sprung clutch, and dog box transmission.

    I cant believe they wouldnt put a tach in a car/truck from the factory.
    Let me guess, S10?

    Well I'll see. I've seen a few cars going for 700 and less with a manual. After I'm done learning I will just sell it off.

    I'm sure that people who put hundreds down on sim peripherals, like me, would gladly hop in that seat.

    Well you see i drive a 1/2 ton pickup from 1970, so i dont really need a tach, ive got feet and ears.

    But i may put one in.

    Hmm, I still think thats pretty wild.
    I guess if you dont ever need to rev it out then you dont miss it.

    I always thought it was weird with the S10s that the auto had a tach and the manual did not. Seems counter-intuitive.

    I'm sure that people who put hundreds down on sim peripherals, like me, would gladly hop in that seat.
    Good for you, but that doesnt mean your peripherals are anything like the real thing.

    I seriously need to get around getting a new windshield washer pump, it sucks not being able to use washer... But I am so poor, I'll ask my boss to get me some AC Delco OEM one, he told me he had wholesale price at AC Delco

    I think I broke a record for here, usually people get around passing 5-6 gallons by now, I haven't finished my first winter gallon since, September? (Still have left in the gallon, my washer tank is full )

    The only time I ever end up using my washers is to spray shit all over the car behind me. All it ever seems to do is make nasty dirty water marks all over my driver and passenger side windows. It also leaves nastier water stains next to where the wipers stop on my windshield. Most of the time it seems like it would be better to use a gas station squeegee anyways.

    I kinda just want to wire both pumps to my rear window spray nozzle and aim it upwards so it sprays on the cars behind me instead of trickling down the window. Now that would be a fun project!

    You could just wait until you get the car, and have someone teach you in your car, or learn from watching videos and asking here and save that money for a new clutch if you end up needing a replacement.

    The real problem is testing the car before buying it.

    Nah, Oregon gravels the fuck out of their roads instead. So when driving on roads which get snowed on your car gets a hail of red dust/gravel/water/rocks/nasty shit thrown at you and if you're traveling at highway speeds you literally have to give a good 20-30 car lengths between you and the car in front of you to not have rocks thrown all over your car constantly. I nearly cried when I was driving up a highway which had a little snow at the top of a hill in the shade while following with a newer WRX STI since all I could hear was rocks hitting my car every second on the straights. It's so rare to see people drive roads at a moderate pace without coming to a complete stop for the slightest corner. People enter the fucking highway at about 25-30, so fucking annoying, fuck.

    They might salt the city roads around here but snow always melts off by 12pm and dumbass commuters are normally left to put their pitiful 4x4 suvs and camerys into ditches or drive up curbs and hit trees in neighborhoods everywhere while me and my friends go drift our cars everywhere with summer tires.. So many people around here have studded tires when it snows no more than an 1" a day for maybe a couple days with it melting off during the day anyways. Our roads are already torn up enough, why can't we just get them banned.

    I love that we have so many maintained roads which aren't driven by more than the odd forestry or log truck though, Oregon has like thousands of miles of rarely driven single lane roads which are some of the most beautiful and fun drives. These roads in the summer just make living here worth it.

    *re-valved bilsteins

    I agree that the Illuminas are better than stock Bilsteins, but there are much better options than the Illuminas. Theyre pretty much the bottom of the barrel option.
    In fact, for a long time now real enthusiast have been giving FM a lot of flak for bothering with such a mediocre shock in their kits.
    Where are you reading this? I've heard bad reviews from people riding Tokico HP's, but never the Illumina. Everything I've read has been positive. The track days I raced against other NB's with full ground control setups couldn't keep up with me and my Illuminas.

    Do you guys have any tips on waxing? Now I know it should seem straight forward, but mine always seem to come out to a haze almost just as bad as before I put it on. Rub on turtle wax in circular motions, let dry to a haze. Wipe off excess with a rag, then buff with a buffer. Right? Well It never seems to turn out any better. I clean and dry the surface before hand, even put on two layers of wax. No change. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

    For one, you need to do the prep before you can wax. Wash the car, then clay bar it. This prepares the paint by filling in minor inconsistencies (scratches, cracks). Then polish the car. Apply a small amount of polish and apply evenly in a circular motion on the car. Allow it to sit for around a minute, then use a microfiber cloth to buff it off. Do this one or two times depending on how shiny you want the car to be. THEN apply your wax, using the same technique as you did with the polish. The wax will be a little harder to buff off, but it should still come off relatively easy. You don't NEED to use a buffing wheel, a microfiber cloth works just fine; but if you want to use the buffing wheel, DON'T wipe off the wax first, then you're just defeating the whole purpose seeing as you're wiping it off instead of buffing it in.

    Remember, wax isn't what makes your car shiny, it's what protects the paint. Polish makes the car shiny.

    My manual 5-on-the-floor S-10 had no tach (or muffler, for that matter), so I'd shift when it shifted from being deafeningly loud to painfully loud.
