Went and had a look at a 08 Polo GTI 9N3 as a new daily to replace my V8 which I want to turn into a project car of sorts. No good, could hear that the timing belt was playing up and the seats were surprisingly uncomfortable. Tried out some Lancer hatch after that but it was big hunk of shit with absolutely no guts to it.

Looks like a '10-'12 Mazda 3 is going to be the only option available to me within my price range sub $10k ausfagian. Anything in particular to look out for with them?

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

It seems every car made these days is full of computers and electronic components that cannot be serviced but that can be hacked by evil doers.

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

Yes. I know they are a bitch to register after importing, and I don't know how much of that carries over to ownership transfers and registration renewal.

They are dumb anyway. Unless it's one of the special editions they didn't import officially, it's exactly the same car you can buy normally but with the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car. It's silly.

Sorry, my nerd was showing. Basically its the least good one that is the least resembling of what people like about the MX-5 platform. People who like the NC are on par with people that think Burger King is the best fast food chain and eat their pizza with ranch dressing. They also tuck all their shirts into their pants regardless of if they are at work or not, thinking that it makes them look more gentlemanly than their peers when all it really makes them look like is a huge fucking dork that can only get laid by taking advantage of fat drunk cosplayers with low standards at anime conventions. If you buy an MX-5 NC then you are destined to become that one person in their 40's who refuses to watch any movies over a PG rating even if they don't have any actual children with them because you don't like "inappropriate things".

I have no recommendations to give, aside from just buying 90's cars and realizing that the average consumer buys cheap plastic garbage and doesn't car about satisfying dials or actually having a dashboard instead of a ton of awkward empty space.

Toyota City, Japan, October 6, 2017―Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) is set to unveil the GR HV SPORTS concept car at its worldwide premiere at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017, taking place from October 25 through November 5 at Tokyo Big Sight.

>The GR HV SPORTS concept represents a new way to enjoy cars by integrating the thrill of a sports car with the environmental friendliness of an eco-car. who is tesla for 200 alex

>The design is reminiscent of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's TS050 Hybrid racing car that competes in the World Endurance Championship (WEC). A CANCELLED GROUP S PROTOTYPE WHICH WAS SET TO BE TOYOTA'S EQUIVALENT OF THE DELTA S4 KNOWN AS THE MR2 222D

>Features a targa top that was also used for Toyota's legendary convertible sports cars, the Toyota Sports 800 (a.k.a. Yotahachi) and the Supra just because it can

>Powered by THS-R (Toyota Hybrid System-Racing) that is infused with hybrid technology refined by the TS050 Hybrid but in reality is a completely different system

>While completely embodying functionality as a genuine sports car, the GR HV SPORTS concept features LED headlights, aluminum wheels, and a rear diffuser similar to the TS050 Hybrid MR2 222D prototype. The design evokes - Toyota's bond with motor sports.

>The matte black body color expresses power and aggressiveness and totally does not represent a further connection to the reimagination of the aforementioned rally car.

Cool, so it's like a DCT except your response time is SLOWER from having to take your hand off the wheel, thus making it pointless!


Sadly, there's probably a legitimate marketing reason for it. There are 3 common excuses I see for so called "car enthusiasts" getting a car with an automatic transmission

>the auto will shift faster and therefore ==go faster== than a stick shift!

Only true for paddle-shifter DCTs made in the last 5-10 years and purpose-built aftermarket dog boxes made for drag racing, otherwise this has been proven time and time again to be bullshit. Even if this were true, it proves that they only care about showing off how fast/cool their car is instead of getting it for the actual driving experience.

>I'm too scared to learn clutch so I'm just gonna get this auto car with a "manual mode"

In my experience, the auto cars that let you change gears don't hold a candle to a proper stickshift. Just do what I did and practice a bit in the parking lot where you bought it before driving it home and practicing for about an hour in an empty parking lot (preferably one with a hill). You'll probably stall it a few times during your first couple weeks of owning it even after that practice (ESPECIALLY on steep hills) but stalling the engine is no big deal because it only takes a few seconds to start it back up and put her in gear. After a month or two you'll hardly ever stall her.

>I don't want one because I live in a big city with a lot of stop-and-go traffic

The only valid excuse IMHO other than being disabled. Constant traffic lights aren't that bad but rush hour traffic is an absolute killer for you mentally when you are in a car with a clutch pedal. I sometimes see people suggest you get a second "fun" car with a proper manual when you're not commuting but chances are good that if you live somewhere that the traffic gets that bad then you don't really have the space/money for another car anyways.

>is it trying to appear as a 6-spped manual?

It, apparently, gives you the option of changing between automatic and full manual. How they intend to make it work I have no idea it's not going to work and it'll be a glorified automatic sports shifter that denies changes it doesn't like.

3d664b No.14366


There is only one way I can see this being "feasible". The transmission is an automatic with a clutch instead of a torque converter. Using the buttons on the dash? then there's your regular automatic as the clutch is actuated by the car. Want a manual? Press the button to FIRE ZE MISSLES override the computer, and have 100% control of the transmission.

I'm assuming there's going to be a third pedal for this situation.

The entire midsize division needs a complete overhaul on an international scale:

>Need to transport a group of people and occasionally large luggage while still being able to fit inside a standard garage?

Kei vans worked perfectly fine in the 80s, there's absolutely no reason as to why they won't now other than safety standards

>Live in an awkward spot, out in the sticks or a place that has particularly bad winters?

Only the best, proper 4x4s with actual muscle behind them would continue to be sold. Landcruisers, Wranglers, Pajeros, Nivas, G-Wagens as they were made back in the 80s, Defenders put back into production and Range Rovers once sent back to their farmland roots would be among your available options.

>Need something with some offroad ability, but also the versatility of a van, dirt cheap and as durable as a motherfucker, not to mention new?

Get a compact truck, with marques like Toyota and Ford supplying true successors to models such as the Hilux and Ranger, not the fattened up overstuffed fragile "crew cab" widebody duallies they sell in their place nowadays.

>Want to be a wasteful, tasteless spic or nigger?

Do what your parents did in the 90s and get a cheap malaise-era pseudo muscle coupe like the Aero Monte Carlo, Thunderbird Turbo or L-Body Dodge. Keep your filthy subhuman hands away from the "six-deuces/treys/fo's", there's more than enough that have been ruined over the years.

76988a No.14318


>international scale

Then you shouldn't forget the small cars made for city strolling. The small cars are now, ironically, getting bigger and bigger, with more and more ugly crossovers with no practical use (Nissan Juke, Toyota CH-R, Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008, Dodge Caliber, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA etc…). They are just a merging between SUVs and city small cars. That category should be nuked for new small cars made to be driven in the city, like the old Peugeot 106, 1st gen Renault Clio, first gen Fiat Panda, all japanese kei cars or even, plymouth Horizon or Renault 5 ( Le Car in the US). The everyday "small" hatchbacks that are sold today are even too big for small hostorical streets, a 2017 Toyota Yaris, or same year Renault Clio are way too big compared to their uses, thanks to all the new safety laws and tasteless design choices.

Also, midsize hatchbacks are getting so big they look like regular breaks nowadays (a Honda fit looks like a van and a Honda Civic is finally a regular sedan) and people don't buy family vans anymore because it's not cool anymore, choosing large crossovers (or SUVs if the buyers wallet allows it) like the infamous Nissan Qashqai or Rogue or the defunct Dodge Nitro. Make family vans great again.

For context, I live in one of the most sub/urban place possible. There is no "I go offroading" excuse except for people who have it as an explicit hobby and are willing to drive hours out to do it.

>useless unless offroaders

I'm not sure cube cars have the power to offroad. My friend bought a Honda Element and it's just absolute trash. Inside is cheap plastic and feels unfinished/barren. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of the forgotten, crumb-encrusted hallways in the back of a sports stadium, except those have concrete so they feel more solid.

>if it carries stuff

Only the Mexicans and contractors need big trucks. You can identify them because the back is always loaded up, they usually spring for lockable storage containers, and even the ones who load them down never go for something huge like an F250 when they could get away with a mid-sized truck. Most of the gardeners just run with older or smaller trucks and then toss their tools in the back. The people driving the really big ones are people who "need to move furniture occasionally", and it's only because they're "that friend with the truck I can call when I need to move stuff".

>World needs them

But it's only old Vietnamese men driving them. I'm not sure why they find them so appealing but they can't get enough of crappy 90's minivans. Never see them with any family or carrying much. Nobody has a perfect family, and no man would be caught dead driving a minivan. It's exclusively for older Vietnamese men or single moms who want to be able to toss stuff way in the back and not have to clean it for years at a time.

>If they can offroad

Still tremendously wasteful, oversized vehicles for that purpose. The only reason to buy one of those is if you're incredibly rich and can get escorted/driven places and want an overly-large place to hang out during drives. Politicians ride in them for a reason but basically nobody else needs one. Even then, it's a ridiculous luxury thing.

I forgot I was in Europe for a moment. There are a few old V8 to find here, but not under 10k€ if you want it in a decent state (about those you mentioned). For 10k€, there also is the 2004 mustang V6 in pristine state. Why take the beaten ones or the costly ones?

because literally the only good thing about the Mustang and Challenger (and arguably the Camaro/F-body) is straight-line performance. Once you take away the V8 option you're left with other cars, that are nearly as cheap or cheaper, that offer similar or better straight line performance with better handling to boot.

The looks man. Not everyone is a mech enthusiast and likes a car mostly for its looks. Most of the drivers actually.

Though I agree with you and personnally, I'd never buy a non V8 muscle.

What's yours and why?
Or, what brand do you want to see come back from the dead? And explain why you think it deserves a second chance.

Alpine is alive !!!

>3 yo post

Nevertheless If I had 55k€, I would strongly hesitate between this and a Cayman. The Alpine has a cuter design but a 4 banger… I also wanted a Camaro/Mustang/Challenger… For this amount of money, the Alpine is worth it somehow.

Not completely defunct but Lancia needs to be set loose.

I have always revered the Tucker, myself. Such an amazing car, it's tragic how cronyism and crooked officials destroyed such a promising company

New Tesla Model S revealed.

And fuck, it's worse than the original, and the original has some seriously ugly design points.

It's the car of the future, so why does it look so ugly. Literally, Elon Musk is framing the look of the future, and instead chose to make it a horrible pastiche of a new Aston, Mustang and a hatchback with autism. It's just profound how ugly this car has become.

I am not sure what your post is trying to tell me in this case besides "ur dum" I still stand not corrected.

My arguments were

>electrical engines produce heat under stress

>electrical engines produce less heat undel low stress, thus waste less power (input to engine remains the same, output goes to waste because the wheels are not spinning)

>so future electric trucks could use a gearbox

Did you provide any arguments? No, you did not.

You seem to have trouble wrapping your head around this. I'll try to make it more simple for you.

62c7a4 posts this:

>Someone has to make electric kits that let us replace drivetrains from engine to electric. Think of the potential.

>Of course, it would be quite complicated, and it must leave the regular engine as generator while forgetting the gearbox completely (electric engines+gearboxes will not happen on road cars, maybe only specialised towing vehicles).

>No, it has to replace the gearbox (direct acces to engine power for max generation), and handle the power to wheels the same way gearbox did (axles)

To which I (4c37af) reply:

>electric engines+gearboxes will not happen on road cars

>What is the original Honda Insight

Since it technically does have an electric motor (although coupled to a combustion engine) in line with a manual transmission.

To this, you (62c7a4) reply with a lecture on how electric motors work, which completely misses the point of my post you're replying to, and on top of that you tell me "ur dum" by implying that I don't know fucking middle school physics.

Do you understand now, or do I need to use some other language?
