What I've been doing is just put it on neutral if you aren't going anywhere and once you see traffic start moving shift into first gear.

fe2578 No.15561


That is the correct way to drive… Holding the clutch open for extended periods puts excess wear on the bearing and spring.

ebbfe6 No.15563


What about at a normal stop sign with regular traffic, do you keep it on neutral then? Or put it on neutral before you stop so you can just use the brake without having to use the clutch(what I've been doing)

3e8eee No.15564


What? You just use the engine breaking when you retrogear and switch to first gear when you're on the stop line. No need to get back to neutral.

d53dd6 No.15565


It boils down to personal preference. If i know i will not need to accelerate, i slip it out of gear (no clutch) and brake with regular brakes when necessary.

Then to begin movement again put it in first with clutch and revmatch all the way to the needed speed.

Every other board gets one, so we might as well have an unpopular opinions thread of our own. Some of the ones I have

>I don't understand the appeal of cars/engines that have a "peaky power band" or setups with lots of turbo lag. Why the hell would you want to WAIT until you have gone through 70% of your revs before you get any significant power?

>I think twin charging, when done right, is currently the best way to gain more power out of an engine and that it should be utilized more. twin charging>twin turbo>supercharging>NA>one small turbo>shit>one giant turbo with massive turbo lag. Also, it has dat amazing sound when done right (embed related)

>AWD>RWD, though FWD is still my least favorite and my favorite car is still RWD oddly enough

>the only Ferrari cars I like are the 312t and F40

>my favorite engine configuration is V10

>Despite what I have seen others claim, both inside and outside /o/, the absolute biggest "poser sports car" is the Toyota Celica (and Scion tc since they're basically the same car) with an automatic transmission. At least Civic-fags actually mod their cars even if most of the mods are only aesthetic, and mustangs are still RWD

>even though I'm usually a massive classics-fag when it comes to cars, I unironically think that Lambo has been better during the last 10 years or so than they have at any other point in their history

>I'm not a fan of the Camaro inb4 "muh turd-gens"

>My second favorite car manufacturer is that one that the board owner put a filter on because he's a faggot. Yes they are retarded a lot of the time, but at least they haven't started half-assing the auto enthusiast market like other companies have *cough* Mitsubishi *cough*. The Dart is my dream DD

>LS swaps are supremely overdone, especially on small japanese sports cars. If you want a Corvette C5, then buy a fucking Corvette C5! Please leave the RX7/8, 240sx and 300zx alone, as its already hard enough finding ones with original engines that still work and haven't been fucked with.

You know the meme of how whenever someone asks what car they should get, the immediate response is to tell them to get a used Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic? Well the response on /r/cars 90% of the time is to tell them to lease a brand fucking new Mazda3 because "it's the most fun reliable daily driver you can buy" even though it's a front wheel drive economy subcompact that understeers like everything else on the road. Yes the Mazda3, not the MazdaSPEED3 for some fucking reason. The 2019 version has a crappy torsion beam in the rear for extra lameness. Really the whole board at large is absolutely paranoid about buying used cars because they assume that everything that doesn't have a warranty is a money pit that will cost more in the long run than leasing.

At this point you are just complaining.

Will see you in 20 years, when all the fancy electronic equipment in whatever it was compared to will be broken and rendered the van useless.

Mercedes knows their target audience, and they are all small businesses. That Merc makes a great fleet vehicle with no exotic or hard to replace parts, and in the long run, it's all that matters.

Those vans are not for the same target audience. One is for very well-situated families, other is for practical puposes.

Would i buy that minivan in europe of i had the choice? No, i would get VW Caddy, which can seat the same amout of people AND carry more stuff around.

>That Merc makes a great fleet vehicle with no exotic or hard to replace parts, and in the long run, it's all that matters.

Have you ever worked on a Sprinter van? They're built with nothing but exotic and hard to replace parts. Between the merc, dodge and freightliner variants it's a veritable pain in the ass to get anything sorted on those pieces of shit, your order shit for your model and year and get shit back that is nowhere near fitting on the van. Fuck I replaced the turbo on an OM642 TWO DAYS AGO, it was a horrible experience both sourcing the parts and doing the job. We had to get some shit from Napa, some from merc, some from dodge and some shit was discontinued. Great job idiots.

A fully loaded toyota or honda with power everything stands a much higher chance of still working in 20 years than a merc. The metris won't have the cross-badge problems of the sprinter, but it doesn't stand a chance at being more reliable.

Well, before I could walk, I had a wrench in my hand

I was my Mama's little angel and my Daddy's second chance

He went end over end the first year he went pro

And he lost part of his eyesight, so he couldn't race no more

But he never lost his touch when he got underneath the hood

He knew how to make them run and he knew one day he would

See his name in victory lane and engraved on that cup

Just like all them other crazy fools with racing in their blood

He would put me on his lap when he'd drive and I'd take the wheel

He'd say "What do you think about that son? How does she feel?

You just wait till them little legs get long enough to reach the gas

Once you put her on the floor one time there ain't no turning back"

Every Saturday, he'd take me out to the garage

He'd take an empty bucket and fill it full of engine parts

He's sit me down and pour em out in front of me on the floor

I'd have to tell him what each one was and what each one was for

We'd jump in his old car and go down to the race that night

He'd tell me what each driver was doing wrong and what each one did right

He could always pick the winner before they ever took a curve

#3 might have the car but 43 has got the nerve

But before I turned 18, Daddy said "Now pretty soon

You'll be old enough to race but I'll leave it up to you

I taught you all about it, taught you everything I know

You gotta have a car to do it and you gotta work and buy your own"

The first one I bought was a Mustang #2

Nobody kept 'em any longer than they kept a pair of shoes

The G80 locker seems complex, but it's usually a very good diff, mostly because it's an open diff, and thus not stressed, in most driving conditions.

But this isn't the first time I've seen one break the carrier apart and is most likely due to driver abuse: High load engagement at high differential ratios.

I know I'm a few weeks late but I've been working on an old RAM van that has been poorly maintained. It had a very similar issue to what you describe, and it turned out the ECT for the PCM was rotted by the coolant that was in there for God knows how long (the radiator was badly corroded and the expansion tank was filled with slime). Lots of corroded fittings, currently doing the head gaskets on that.


You mean physical accessibility? Yes it is very easy, especially a push mower. I took apart an average sized one a while ago and it was about soccer ball sized.

Unfortunately with car prices skyrocketing

Even when I was a kid in the early 2000s I would watch these old Clarkson and Rally-related VHS my mother would buy me and they'd often talk about the rally king of the post-quattro era; The Delta HF. This is a car I have wanted for about as long as I can remember, but the ridiculous appreciation means once I finally get to a calm period in my life they'll be far too expensive. An Evo VI is my alternate choice due to Makinen being a part of my earliest racing memories (alongside Hakkinen and Schumacher in F1), but who knows how much they'll be worth in 5 - 10 years time either?

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

Related by a little but someone on kikebook who's allegedly friends with a few famous eurobeat producers and vocalists claimed that Super Eurobeat vol. 250 will be "the last" release, coming in "early" 2018. Please take this with a grain of salt unless there is an official announcement in Japanese. Sauce: http://forum.eurobeat-prime.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3860
