So it was a crash then hmm?
What are you replacing it with?


That's always good to hear friend

Yeah, I rolled it. Not my finest hour, especially seeing as it was entirely my fault (no-one else involved apart from my passengers).

Replacing it with a Skoda Fabia, covered on insurance. I know Skoda don't have a good reputation, but I quite like them. And it's made of cake

Thanks btw

So how did you manage to roll it?
Sharp turn or quick turn at an angle?


Hmm, never heard of Skoda....Euro based company?
Pic?

Was going too fast for a bend and hit into a bank, which flipped it 270 degrees. I was aiming for 360 It was kind of fun, but I feel bad for my friends. However, we all walked away from it and didn't have to go to hospital or anything.



is the cake version



is the metal version

New skodas are amazing. If you're looking for a cheaper Volkswagon passat, get the Octavia- amazing. And what do you say for a first cat to be an old austin mini?

Good luck with the insurance, especially since you're a young male driver. Looking at your profile you've still got a while to go before you can start driving anyway. My dad considered getting me a classic car, but after looking into it further it wasn't such a good idea. I can't get classic car insurance because of my age (17) It can be quite expensive to find a running one too, unless of course money isn't an object. if you're lucky you could be able to pick up one cheap that doesn't need much work to get running. But insurance will be your biggest foe.

So I now have a Seat Arosa 1.0 as my first car
It still has the Wolfrace alloys from when it was first purchased, 2 previous owners and full service history. Left wing mirror has had a bit of a scrape adn there's quite a few small scratches, but they aren't noticeable. Right headlight has a 2 inch crack in it. But altogether its in quite good shape. Dad is replacing the cambelt and it's currently sitting in the garage.
We thought that the cambelt hadn't been changed as there was no mention of it in the service history but upon inspection it's not aligned properly, so clearly it must've been changed at some point. Dad will sort that out, he just assumed it wasn't very powerful due to the fact it's only a 1l engine.
Currently declared as of the road, uninsured. Will need to be MOTed in May. But I've got the registration certificate from the DVLA saying I own the car I can't wait to start driving it, can't wait to pass my test either. Had a driving lesson this morning, worked on clutch control (only stalled 3 times, which is a record for me ) and it will be reversing round corners next week. I generally kick arse at turns in the road and parallell parking though

I've always loved the Mini, so yeah. But they're not particularly safe, so I'm not sure how you feel about that. But the coolness makes up for the slowness

What does everyone think of the new Fiat 500? I loved the old one, but I'm not sure about the new one: doesn't have the cheap and cheerfulness of the original.

mmmm. flat 6. splooge.

haha I used to have a black car. not only are they hard to clean, but even minor scratches are like, "HEY! LOOK AT ME! I'M A SCRAAAATCH!"

But if you think black is hard to keep clean, try getting a white car!

Anybody a racer here?
I'm looking to get a few personal opinions on mods to put on the car i'm getting
that'll fit circuit, drag, and drift racing all in one.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder of course


you'd probably want to choose circuit racing for something like an eclipse

I doubt they could haul any real power out considering I'm pretty sure they've only got a small 4 cylinder, and they're not particularly small or light

And don't even TRY to drift it (FWD )

I'd say get some coilovers, maybe some light tuning on the engine, intake, exhaust, tyres, strip it out if you're comfortable with that

If it can't drift, it fails....already....I MUST have a car with drifting capabilities.

There any Mitsubishi Eclipse models that CAN drift and still look sexy?

all eclipses are FWD, so no. look into getting a mazda miata or a toyota mr2 if you wanna drift and still stay within the price range of an eclipse.

...which is something you should look into because RWD cars are an absolute blast to drive.

+1 'cept for the first part. Some 1st and 2nd gen Eclipses/Talons/Lasers were AWD...they were basically like cheap evos. Pro drifting is a RWD only sport, though. It's physcally impossible for any other drive type to drift like that.

When did you get that and for how much?



haha.

it was my parents actually. my old car was on its last legs, and they were getting a new Volvo, so i took the Honda. i dont know how much it cost when they got it. that was like in 2000. im fairly sure it was somewhere around $17,000-$20,000 at that point. but i might be wrong. it could have been a little less. maybe a little more.

is it a mid to late 1980's Nissan 300zx? thats what it looks like. except they came with t-tops standard, and that doesnt have t-tops, so im not sure. its definitely similar though.

I just had a thought...I've seen this done before. If you can find an AWD drivetrain from an Eclipse GSX or a Talon TSi, you can disconnect the front axles and have a RWD car to drift with. Good luck finding that though...and if you do, it'll cost you. I'm not so sure the Spyder is a good version to do that with though. More weight + less rigidity = bad for you.

Also, if your car is a 3rd or 4th generation (2000 or newer), that stuff won't fit.

Actually these were available with T-tops as well...not a Nissan though...or even japanese for that matter. Good guess though the body style is definitely similar. The big giveaway, I think, is the rear windows...they're the car's most defining feature.

So I have a problem. I own a 1994 Honda Accord DX and I replaced the rack and pinion on it. Upon further inspection, I decided I needed new Tie End Rods.

Anyways, I finished it up and my dad drove it in to get it aligned while I was at work and he said they couldn't do it because I was missing 2 Inner Tie Rods. Now, I was under the impression that the Inner Tie Rods came on the Rack and Pinion.

None the less, there isn't a piece missing. Each piece I took out is accounted for and I put things back the way they were with new parts. Me misplacing something is not an issue.

Do you think they're trying to rip me off by doing extra work to it? Can somebody clarify with me what exactly the Inner Tie Rods are?

Thanks.
