and sure let's just throw a bunch of timing at my car with crappy fuel
ABS is amazing though, the ABS in my Integra has potentially saved my life and car many times especially in the rain.
All I need to adjust my engine's fuel mix and ignition timing, and I don't have to worry about water damage or burglars if I leave 'em in the seat.
Huh? I still don't know why you're saying you use an E85 map without using E85. The curves aren't set for gasoline, may very well be damaging something.
The idiots will slide off the road, hit trees, and either learn to fucking drive or take themselves off the roads. I don't want the roads safer because the cars do everything, I want the roads safer because the drivers know what the fuck they're doing. A good driver can put 200,000 miles on a '57 Chevy and not hit anything. A bad driver can't go 20 miles without hitting anything despite the driver's aids. I want to share the roadways with the former, fuck the latter.
UR AFRAID OF DA FUTURE
Please don't start trying to riot the moment smart prosthetics come out (Deus Ex reference)
theres a difference between being afraid of the future and not wanting to be a lazy ass pansy
See also: power folding mirrors, heated seats etc
I'm not afraid of the future at all. I'm afraid of dumb-fuck bimbos that don't know how to fucking drive exceeding the limits of their stability management and hitting me six times harder than they would have without the stability management.
nyah, just sit your wallet on the stove in the morning, then place the nice warm square into your back pocket.
insta warm seat.
If an E85 station ever opens near here I'm going to put together a boosted E85 D setup, but for now I'll stick to 93 unleaded. :(
Used to be able to get 104-110 octane from a local at the track by the barrel. But the track closed down. I'm not set up for that kind of go juice anyways, 93 is plenty bang for how little boost I run.
Drive By Wire is a really cool thing. In my dad's G8 GXP, if you drove in sport mode and downshifted, it would increase the throttle so it wouldn't jerk the rear wheels, whether or not you had your foot on the throttle. My mom's 06 silverado crew cab also has drive by wire, since it has an LS-1 in it. My dad also flashed the control unit so it has instant response. Still has too little power for the bigass truck, but atleast it's instant power.
it's not like the lack of computerized intervention will somehow grant people the skills they need to NOT SUCK AT DRIVING
watching an old u-haul rental truck lock it's tires in your rear view isn't fun, thankfully I was first at the stoplight
hey teste how bout dem teslaz
yes we get it cars are faster nowadays
go complain about how the speed limit isn't 55 anymore
SO HOW BOUT DEM LAGGY THROTTLES
Fuck laggy throttles
Man testesface is getting pretty butthurt about our opinions.
I drive old shit why am I even in this thread
also wait I never posted an opinion in here
I'm not going to say anything more than A: I'm not butthurt, and B: I'm not going to argue with people like you any further. Don't like my opinion? Ignore it, as I'm doing with you from this point further.
>dumb on every post disagreeing/arguing
I was actually saying that because of the off-topic-ness.
I honestly couldn't care less about laggy throttles. I don't try to be a redlight racer.
