Well I already know how to do it, I'd just have to learn where the redlines are I guess
well you don't need to rev it to the redline haha.
I didn't want to, but I'm just sayin I gotta figure out when to shift gears
Since all cars are different
Don't just go to the redline that's stupid, go all the way past it
downshift that ho
redline in 4th shift to first
no thank you I'd like to keep the engine intact
Oh no I don't know how to shift gears! When the car sounds like it's lumpy and bogging, or high pitched and screaming!!
you should get a "normal" car
a civic seems pretty normal
"Normal" cars are boring
Get a Volvo c:
Honestly dude, you're better off just looking and testing cars yourself.
Everyone here has super strong opinions and will argue at nothing.
I completely understand about not wanting to buy a car that already needs repairs. Like Second Gear said, just try some cars on and see what fits you.
I wouldn't mind having a bit of repairs done, like on that Honda. I do have a buddy that can do all that for pretty damn cheap. I don't give a shit about moddability or easy access to the parts inside the engine block, because unless in case of emergency I don't really want to take a wrench to it.
If I want to work on a car, I want to do like a complete rebuild of a classic or something.
that white civic you were looking at is pretty bad ass
All he says is wrong is the alarm circuit is fucked, the ride is kinda bouncy and the exhaust leaks.
So it's not like a tranny replacement or anything else major. I think it'd be a good thing to invest in.
What about this guy?
Seems like a lot less work.
Looks a lot more icky though
That's personal taste there, almost identical cars. But that hood is silly.
I could live with it, but like I said, it's a taste thing. If the hood doesn't bother you it's still a good deal. And it's a true Si.
You don't know where I live
I just assumed you lived in Denver
"Proof of driving license permit" (AMA1ABE)
So now I can get a license for moped (AM), light motorbike (A1)(limited effect, no more than 25 kw and a ratio between efficacy and curb weight not more than 0:16 kw / kg), motorbike (A) and passenger car (B) with a heavy trailer (+E).
Gotto book some driving practice lessons next week!
Came across a diesel motorbike last night. Pulled up next to a guy at the lights and could hear it clattering, had to ask him whether it was a diesel or a bit rough which I thought could have pissed him off a bit but turns out it was a diesel. Then the lights changed and he disappeared in a huge cloud of smoke.
Surely a diesel kinda defeats the point of a motorbike? But he must be getting some crazy high mpg.
There was a lot of experimentation and conversions during periods of war, to make it easy to supply fuel for all the vehicles (as tanks and such are diesel)
Also, referring to earlier in the thread. Who the hell needs a tachometer to know when to shift. My car doesn't even have one
Even if I'm driving a car with a tachometer I never look at it - I never looked at it while learning. Surely you can shift just by the feel of the power output and also the sound?
should've bought a miata
should've swapped ls
should've had dropped and stretched (a bit, not mexicanflush style)
should've bought a hard top for it
should've made a cage
should've track dat car
Doesn't sound bad at all
