Just the short course. The long course is too bumpy.
Like I said I'd probably rent a track or some large lot out for a day and we could hang out, eat foods, party, sexually experiment with each other, party more, regret it in the morning, and then do whatever after that.
Will probably be this track
It's a big oversized gokart track, would be fun to just do some laps on it.
Might be able to talk the guy into letting us use the 1/4 mile asphalt oval too for some GOOD OL' NASCAR HYUCK laps.
It'd all be for fun, of course. I don't want anyone to get out and get hurt, or tear their ride up.
My brake fluid is right below the minimum line -_-.. So i need new/more fluid, or new brakes(soon), right? Should i just leave it until i change my brake pads, or should i add some fluid? The brake pedal is a bit mushy, but it could just be my imagination. The fluid looks really dirty as well.
I also feel i need new rear drum brakes as well, because my parking brake is very weak, and they make creaking sounds when i fully depress the brake.
Also, threshold braking is kind of tricky. My front right wheel always locks before the left. Hopefully i don't lock them up in case of a real emergency stop.
[sub]I just realized that is the side that shakes under heavy braking.. i hope i don't have an expensive underlying problem here. It felt like my other wheels had more stopping power when that one locks, it's just pushing it harder than the front left.[/sub]
If you lose fluid, you should very well take a look at your brake fluid lines. Important shit right there.
It never drips on the driveway as far as i can tell, i thought it was normal for the level to drop with brake wear.
Mine never dripped on the driveway, yet my dad once lost total brake, and I came back a few time without fluid, happened when I had to apply force on the brake, the leak was in the control units in the rear brake line, it was rotten and the line was too. Good think a foot of brake line only costed me about 0,17$, so I changed the whole thing up to the rear, the front was already done. Now it only has a very small leak due to wear, but it's very minime, hadn't had to put fluid back in since... a few months, well since I changed the line.
Has anyone here had experience with running open headers or Hooker headers? I'm getting ideas
I've run open header on a lot of things. My TE72, my Civic, my CRX, my old chebby racecar, my fucking lawn tractor
what do you even want to know about it? It's loud and obnoxious. That's all you need to know.
We ran open manifolds on one of the cabs today that got totaled. Reason being we salvaged the good tires off of it as well as the expensive as fuck cats and put it back up into the parking lot so we could get a more important vehicle up onto the lift. I got to drive it up and park it and jesus fuck titties was that sucker loud. It's a police interceptor V8 Crown Vic, and if you think those vics with custom exhaust and shit are loud, think again
Wish I still had the startup video of the ole camaro when it had the 383 in it. No it wasn't open header, it was header-less.
Anyone in Albuquerque interested in going to bradley's meetup deal? Obviously it's not even close to being in the planning stages yet but if it ever gets that far I'm interested in going, so i could either give 1 person a ride or we could sort of...Road trip over together i suppose.
But i don't even know if I'm going to be able to go and again, it's still like just an idea everyone is throwing around so bear that in mind, just saying ahead of time.
But trust me, video STILL doesn't do it justice. I mean seriously, just IDLING it was absolutely terrifyingly deafening, let alone BARELY touching the throttle to get it moving and still let alone REVVING it...
I know a thing or two about loud cars
To think I used to drive that thing around everywhere...
Oh yeah, My tank was empty, although my choke is fucked.
Just more excuses for a holley 4 barrel
MegaSquirt > Carb
pulling throttle and hearing carb suck air while yer veeyate shakes the whole truck > anything
Someone mind doing a half ass black out in the rims for my truck in photoshop?And maybe a shiny kind of look.
someone else can try the shiny one though
[video]I think this is the same car .. god how i love the yelling and roaring of that car It makes me horny
I always hate you then i get a bro boner because you love cobra's
Drove a New Beetle today, it was lime green and owned by a girl around my age iirc.
Despite it smelling of... cooties, I did rather like it... It was surprising. And you know, if I was to own a car just to drive, I would definitely consider one.
My girlfriend has a beetle that I drive frequently. It's not a bad car but I hate the transmission and the auto roll up windows do weird shit all the time.
The sound system is pretty impressive for a stock car IMO. It has a lot of range.
God, that was one thing. This had manual crank windows, which I am used to (almost everything I've ever owned has had manual windows), but this one... It was a workout rolling it up. God.
Something had to be wrong with it I'm sure.
But yeah, if the New Beetle was rear engine or mid engine, it would have been a hella sweet ride. Oh well.
Hmm, my car seems to like creating new problems everytime i find a solution for an existing problem. Now driving home from work i noticed my clutch feels different. Before there was just the main biting point which was when the pedal was about half way released. Now i feel the car being pulled forward after releasing the clutch up by about half an inch. Then it stays the same until i reach the main biting point where it usually is at half way.
And also when driving in a straight line i noticed my steering wheel is turned left a little (By about 20 degrees). If i straighten it so its aligned with the dash the car starts turning right.
that's normal, my Civic and CRX both take 5 turns. The problem with the beetle was that it was insanely difficult to turn the handle, not the number of rotations.
New one's expensive, classic is obnoxious. I love old beetles but would not buy one "as a boring DD".
Shit I'm 20 minutes early
Guy comes to look at my truck, doesn't even start it up. Tells me "This truck is clearly overpriced. I saw
one for $2000 on Craigslist posted yesterday but it was already sold by the time I emailed the guy"
Left without even starting the engine. I checked UsedVictoria and Craigslist and a truck with
similar mileage and condition is $4000, I'm asking $3000.
Ass. He didn't even make an offer either.
