I was driving on the highway in my minivan when I noticed that the steering wheel felt as though it was pulling toward the right side. Tires don't appear to be damaged. I think it might be an alignment issue with the axle but I wanted to have a better understanding before going in to the shop to get it checked out. I recently moved from out of state and I don't want to get screwed over by the mechanic. Anything I should do/look out for before going?

You could lower the global injection amounts and install something like a multi-point propane injection to make up for the lost power, but I don't think a diesel engine can run on pure propane.

That's nothing a little fischer-tropsch can't take care of. I think the future is in hydrogen generation from biomass. We can then run vehicles either on pure hydrogen, hydrogen enhanced combustion of simpler fuels like pyrolysis oil, hydrogen fuel cells, or use the syngas to synthesize hydrocarbons as a drop in replacement for gasoline and diesel and JP5. One field of something like Miscanthus giganteum could be turned into all sorts of fuels.

Anyone else thinks Hydrogen cells would be as effective and clean as electricity if they had the same amount of R&D put into it as Elon did into EV?

IMO the only reason hydrogen cells aren't currently an equal to ev is because people waved it off prematurely to chase the pipe dream that is electricity.

Also I just noticed the Mirai is a looker.

Movie about a Škoda that is fueled by blood, through the accelerator pedal.

Škoda in question was a very cool early 70's sports prototype that never went into production because communist economy, the Škoda Super Sport 110. Probably the only sporty car that Škoda developed other than the 130RS, R5 and other competition models.

Since this is an obscure socialist czechoslovak movie, I'll link the movie and subs here, cause it would be annoying to try and find. It's mediocre. That's what kino means, no?

This one's called "The Wraith", similar concept in that the star car of the movie is a prototype that never went into production (or maybe wasn't intended to, I don't remember).

The car in question is the Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor.

Handling in GTA V as a whole is godawful regardless of vehicle class. But yes, the speed limit in accordance with the rudimentary handling killed any hope for a balanced supercar/hypercar class. I agree with you on the Heists update. Before it released, the only "immersion breaking" DLC vehicle was the Liberator from the Independence Day Special. A typical DLC consists of misinterpreted nostalgia cash-ins, movie/TV reference cars, military surplus vehicles, and the one passable design. It's a depressing sight to see the level of talent and creativity fall so low, but as long as single player is still compatible with mods and Rockstar won't pull any more stunts regarding the validity of said mods, I won't be too upset. It'll be interesting what will happen concerning the next installment of GTA and what path it will take regarding automotive lore.

Your theory on the ZR380 is most likely correct. With the shift of developer focus onto RDR2, I wouldn't doubt that the modelling team hastily dug files out of the archives in order to hold people over. The rest of the DLC consisted of reskinned/modified V cars sans a few muscle cars. And for all we know, the muscle cars could also share some assets from cut Midnight Club LA cars. What confuses me is that Rockstar stopped porting and releasing cars from GTA IV, given that those are relatively easy conversions.

Vanillaworks recently released the ZR150 – their interpretation of the FB Mazda RX7. It somewhat resembles the Insurrection from GTA Vice City.

6f01db  No.17550


They didn't just port over or slightly modify cars, a lot of assets from V come from R*'s games all over the 7th generation f.e. the yacht from Max Payne 3, FN handgun from L.A. Noire and double-action revolver from Red Dead Redemption.

New season, new thread. First episode goes up on the 18th but what I found more interesting was that they've made a video game that will release a few days before. It sounds awful, and for $15 they don't seem to be very confident in it themselves. I'm considering buying it just out of morbid curiosity.

Oh neat, was wondering when it came back for a while now.

I've never seen a program or other piece of media remotely as shilled against as The Grand Tour, especially by the MSM. Granted there was some discontent after the second episode aired, but most critics use that one episode as a crutch to base their entire opinion of the show on. People seem to forget that Top Gear was not at its best prior to the cancellation.

The show was at its absolute zenith between S11 and S14, then it slowly started dropping in quality, or at least consistency. By S20 they could still knock it out the park every once in a while, but it was clear the shark had been jumped a long time ago (in TG's case, it was the bridge being burned at the end of the Indian Special) yet we continued to tune in each week out of tradition.

When they left, the show became shit, and is slowly starting to stink so much that BBC may have no choice but to drop it entirely. All it is nowadays is a Redditor's wet fantasy with their favorite mystery meat sandnigger Chris Harris and a bunch of no-name losers. Never saw his performance but it's quite frankly a fucking joke they got Joey from Friends as a main presenter, someone with zero automotive journalism experience.

Remember that for a good 25 years the show was literally the UK's version of Motorweek until they cancelled and rebooted it with Clarkson at the helm, with everyone who presented it in its final years going to Fifth Gear. They should do that again, except without the whole "reboot" part. Just end its suffering once and for all.

I'm glad that a fourth season's in the pipeline, but disappointed that all signs point to it being the last we'll ever see of the trio. Best case scenario we get one final season after that, followed by a Special or two every year for the next 5 or so years. Worst case scenario they cut S4 short and that's the end of CHM as we know them.

I just want to see them present Top Gear one last time. Fire (((Danny Cohen))) and have them switch the show off for good.

Matt LeBlanc was however in the "star in a reasonably priced car" segment. IIRC top scorer also. That does give him some credence, though it wouldn't do him any good either way, since he had been set to replace people that were long-time friends with eachother, had good chemistry and were the face of the show for like 15 years.

Even if he was a supreme actor and journalist, he wouldn't be able to pull it off.

Though I didn't watch any episodes from the new series, I bet they are also afraid to pull off hot opinions. CHM did that because they could get away with it, it was their persona, but the newfag presenters probably had a reputation to uphold. The media would ridicule and crucify them if they said anything racist or controversial, ending their careers in an instant.

And half the fun of CHM is smokin' hot opinions and banter.

Took my 89 golf for it's annual* MOT test this morning, it passed with only one advisory note about a minor oil leak which I was already aware of. Imaginemysurprise.jpg

Half an hour later, turned the key… nothing. The ignition barrel is kerfucked.

A bit of wire, some sparks and smoke later, and I managed to start it up and make it home. Somehow, replacement parts are still available, despite the VW parts guy telling me they're not.

Tomorrow i'll be figuring out how to fit the new one…

Any other anons have a classic car as their daily driver, and how much of a pain in the colon is it?

*14 months, because I am absent-minded. Got away with it, again.

P.S., not my golf in pic, I don't have any… mine's a 1.6CL 4+E with electric, er, nothing, faded paint and some rough bits. Yes, it's a rat, but hasn't been modded (molested) by a teenager.

Hell even my car is older than 2002.


>Driving and taking your car into Paris

oh no you don't. This is the most stupid thing you can do. You can, but you shoudn't. Most of the Parisians never use their car or don't even have one. See: New-York city.

>Exemptions until 2020 isn't the equivalent of saving

no. That's not that at all. There are laws that allows you to keep your old car and even pay less on yearly mandatory expenses on them. Classic car owners in France are quite a big lobby.




all uk newspapers. Nothing French. Also all your articles are from 2016, but the law hasn't been applied at all. Do you know there is a law that bans all female to dress with trousers in Paris? It's the same case. Existing, but not applied. French law is more complicated than you're willing to admit.

Lol using the subway in Paris isn't defeatist. You go faster by subway than car over there. The rest of France? That's where you wanna drive. You've never been to Paris have you?

Seconding this. Read the law carefully, not the news articles about how bad it is.

In Latvia you now have a clusterfuck of not understandable tables of what category of cars has to pay how much road tax and by what measure. Like "registered before 2004" (followed by a massive table) or "Engine displacement on cars registered after 2017"(followeed by another massive table) or the bonus of 300 euros you have to pay just because your engine displacement is above 3.5L. Most of those car categories can be described as "Baaaw, they are putting more tax on this and that to get old cars of the roads", but if you drive an average 90s-early 2000s car with statistical average 1.8 gasoline engine, nothing changes. Though everyone driving SUVs gets fucked.

It is funny how law everywhere else seems shit until you get to live there. Like how the fuck can you cross the road in a non-inspection US state without thinking about what kind of wrecks could be driving around.
