Also not a professional, but my first guess would be that a connecting rod or maybe a rod bearing failed and the piston isn't connected securely to anything anymore. That type of plug damage could also be caused by something like a screw finding its way into the engine, but that usually doesn't randomly happen while sitting at a stop sign.

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

I always wanted a Mazda RX-8 when I was younger. I just liked the way it looked and I would sometimes check if racing game had that car before getting it. I started reading more about it a year ago and got really turned off by some of its problems such as engine failure, power steering, and other annoying stuff.

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.

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.

But even then, you can still see some of the earlier regulations in effect. If Nissan truly had their way, the 300ZX would have had pop-ups and the Diablo never would have resorted to using the Z32's headlights from the spare parts bin.

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.

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?

I want to rubbertramp throughout the U.S when I move out, but I need something that could go for less than $7500-ish, and it has to be durable enough to go for a few hundred miles on end. I want something to the tune of a hatchback, so that I could convert it into a cozy bedroom on wheels. A pickup could work, too, with one of those RV extension things to be installed on the bed.

A fellow anon helped me out a bit over at /ogc/ on choosing the right tire, but I'm still stumped. I've look at a few review sites and not all tires I've looked at are on all the sites I've been on. I don't just want to blindly buy a tire, I'm trying my best looking up the best possible tire I can buy. I want maximum comfort and handling. If someone can point me in the right way and figure shit out myself that'd be great. If I went to a tire shop they'd know a hell of a lot better than me but I seriously doubt they're experts.
