Was looking around for a torrent and found this on youtube. Funimation also has Second Stage on their channel, but nothing later than that. Here's the playlist for First Stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVG7zusJ1t8&list=ELLBPz0QR3ebI

Third, Fifth and Final Stages are readily available on nyaa, but I can't find Fourth Stage anywhere. If anyone has it or knows where to find it, please post it.

I also came across an "Initial D Legend" trilogy, never heard of it but it looks like it was released last year? Also available on nyaa.

Also, here is the complete manga that an anon posted a while ago: https://mega.nz/#F!cQUFHJJa!MFUJaCq-RJ1ry1EAUGOU5w

Your post did not 404, I can still see it.

Anyways I heard good reports on those with the prices being very low and the diesel engine coming from BMW, reliable and sweet enough. I was searching for one myself, but there's only gas 75 for sale here or high mileage diesel. Go for it, 17k is nothing for a diesel ride this good.

Downside is maintenance: if you can't do it yourself it´s gonna be a pain since parts are to be found in surplus or junkyards.

I was exaggerating somewhat. It seems to me that

you might want to use more than the normally recommended ratio since it's been so long since the oil has been changed, and I would definitely do it multiple times.


It depends heavily on the engine. Wherever you find the weight you should use, you should also find a recommendation for organic (mineral) vs synthetic. AFAIK, most engines are designed to work best with one or the other, and I know that some really, really don't like running organic (like my Saab). Again, look up what is best for your car.

Why exactly safety regulations dislike pop-up headlights?

IIRC, same reason as to why you don't see that many badges above the grille anymore aside from Mercedes and Rolls Royce; due to the propensity of them impaling whoever you might hit when at speed.

Also unnecessary costs + labor if the motor in them dies and you need to prop them up.

No where in that article is there the phrase "assault car". What the commentator (read: not politician) is advocating, is restriction on vehicular traffic in areas with heavy foot traffic. This wouldn't do anything unless there were permanent physical barriers preventing vehicles from entering, which it doesn't sound like she is advocating because she permits vehicle traffic during night time hours or for certified delivery companies. She isn't wrong in that some recent terror attacks have been perpetrated with cars (though the one she highlights happened "14 years ago"). However, the argument against this is even greater than the argument against gun restrictions because crimes are committed with guns, because hundreds of millions more people own cars than own guns, and perhaps even fewer murders happen with cars than with guns.

I disagree with the commentator's idea of simply restricting vehicle traffic by law, because that would not do anything to stop criminals. What she is proposing would essentially be yet another tax. Protecting mainly pedestrian areas with pic related wouldn't be a terrible idea. The "old town" kind of areas in old, European cities like Stockholm usually have tiny roads anyway and they are a bitch to drive on. Even some American cities have this problem - my family once went on a roadtrip to Philadelphia and some of the streets there are still cobblestone, which is a bitch to drive on regardless of the fact that the road was originally designed for horse traffic only and is very narrow. Basically the roads in the areas in question are shit to drive on so I don't know why anyone would want to anyway.

The main issue I see with physically restricting vehicle traffic to these areas is that stores would have a harder time getting deliveries. I assume most of them don't have rear entrances on other streets so deliveries would have to be on foot or bike. This could be a big problem for large stores.

>In order to protect people in the future, cars simply have to be removed from assembly points and city cores.

Right on Västerlånggatan

>It has been fourteen years since a man drove right into Västerlånggatan in the Old Town. He killed a woman and injured another 18 people. There were several reasons to protect the medieval city center, but security in the narrow alleys should have been a heavy argument. It is actually remarkable that car traffic can still roll through the Old Town.

>Stockholm is an international city, a tourist city with 13.5 million guest nights last year. Of the four people killed on Drottninggatan were three visitors, a woman from Belgium, a woman from Uddevalla and a British man. Shopping street is a popular destination for our visitors and should of course be a safe environment. Many tourists continue the street down to the Old Town, but it is really only around Rosenbad and Parliament House. There is a stop for unwelcome cars that can also be folded down if any important transport has to be carried out. The technology is thus, but it's not for everyone.

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

Those two things may be mutually exclusive. Super grippy tires tend to not ride as comfortably afaik.

It is their job to know… Depending on where you go, you may get pushed to get the most expensive one just because, but they will still know more than most of us probably do. I would stay away from Les Schwab.

Sounds to my novice mind that the friction plate things could be worn down to the metal. Don't know though. Could also be a loose bolt or something.

If the threads rip out of the head, the idea is, you overbore the hole and thread it for a special insert, screw the insert in and hit it with a special tool to expand the top section so it grips in the aluminum.

Then you can just screw a new plug into the insert as the inside is the same thread as what ripped out of the head.

I was SUPER lucky in that it was just very badly installed and the insert just unscrewed out of the head, the overbore threads were fine and I was able to install a new insert. If that hadn't been the case the head would have needed to be over-overbored and an oversized insert, and it would have needed to be done in one of the worst possible spots on the engine.

How many episodes of GT did you watch? It felt quite a bit less scripted toward the second half of the season.

>new Top Gear


Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz are the only ones who actually belong on the show. Rory Reid is a token black guy, Chris Evans is a fucking cunt, and Matt LeBlanc is American - he in particular doesn't belong. It's no wonder viewership dropped.

American Top Gear didn't catch on, not necessarily because the content wasn't as good, but because it wasn't Hammond, May and Clarkson presenting it. Those three have chemistry and experience that no other team of presenters have, and it's the reason they are so much more successful.

>Genuinely expecting an unrefined, brand new show with a veteran cast to be better than an almost perfected formula with expendable crew

Grand Tour only just finished its first season. I don't know if you were watching the original show back when it first started but a fucking shitton changed between S1 and say, S5. Jason Dawe went, the focus on normal, everyday cars was gradually supplanted by performance vehicles, the skits and sequences became more comedic and the initially clean show as a whole began to push the boundaries in terms of controversy. Watch an episode of S1 TG sometime, you'll immediately notice the jarring difference in comparison to the majority of its run.

What BBC is doing is protecting its IP until it fades into obscurity, where it can sit on it until a successful revival is augmented. The critical ratings may have improved from S23, but you cannot engineer a bond between a group of people like the Old New TG did. They will keep changing cast, just like the 1977 series did. More people watched the show for the banter and stunts than the cars, and it definitely shows as the viewer ratings continue to fall down the tubes.

On a second, more controversial thought, I didn't think BBC's Robot Wars revival was that good either. The new series of Battlebots was a lot better IMHO. All the good robots fucking broke after lightly tapping the wall once, and the boring flippers which got the shit kicked out of them ending up winning.

aef87c No.13012


I must live under a rock that I didn't know Robot Wars and BattleBots came back. I loved BattleBots when I was younger.

TG is dead and never coming back.I'd watch more TGT, I do hope they stop that celebrity bit, but I felt they beat it into the ground. I do think it's just them venting how much they hated doing it on TG though.

Interesting, I never thought about it this way. I always thought they wanted to do it but avoided it to not give more lawsuit ammo to the BBC. Your theory makes a little more sense.

I thought it was the BBC that wanted them to stop doing the celeb interviews during the show.
