Learned today you don't go 60mph in a low laying area when it has recently rained. Silly Audi just kept going straight like it has a rudder or some other magical device. (At least 3 inches of water was on the road for a good 150 yard's.)

Make sure you get some roders for it. [editline]4th February 2012[/editline] [t]http://atomic.uirpg.com/files/roders.PNG[/t]
what are roders
Wee, 2 of 3 packages came [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/286964/SDC11319.jpg[/img] Prime example of royal mail package handling.
Yeah, well at least we have decent shipping over here in the states..... [IMG]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_OlXLXpnNGNg/SvaLlc5LnAI/AAAAAAAAA_4/lcVQ_QospzM/s400/DSC07204.jpg[/IMG]
Should have seen the "Box" my brake pads came in, I don't think it even qualified as a "Box" anymore. That is terrible. I hope it wasn't anything fragile D: I just hooked the new radio to a 12V test supply, screen is so pretty with its 35,000 colour chocies, I'll be at it all day getting it to perfectly match the dash colour :p
The above was from Google, however I did order a small engine once that arrived looking like it had been drug behind the truck with corners of cast aluminum ground away from the gear case.
Makes me kinda worried about ordering steel parts from LMC, i dont really wanna pay out the ass for parts then have them come dented to shit.
I feel sorry for you guys. I've literally never had a damaged package. Even my 23 inch monitor arrived safely. They're always wrapped in packing peanuts that fly all over the place one you cut into the box.
Shat brix Car is limited to 105 Good to know
So I think I've finally found my car! I've decided on a 2005 1.2 Volkswagen Polo (3 Door). Insurance is £1447 under my dads. Done some digging into the car, and found out it was Category C write off. Going to test drive it next week. [T]http://static.automotex.co.uk/images/compupix/vw-polo-hatchback-petrol_4247758.jpg[/T] (This colour and model) Fingers crossed!
My car takes long enough to get to 100mph that i don't even want to be going that fast anymore.

[QUOTE]Category C: Vehicle extensively damaged and insurer has decided not to repair.

Not to mention the safety in the event of a wreck.
My car pulls kinda nice to 100 from 60 :v
[QUOTE=Second-gear-of-mgear;34545149] If it has frame damage, don't get it. It will never go back to normal. Not to mention the safety in the event of a wreck.[/QUOTE] Yeah- I'm aware of the the problems of a category C write off, my dad's friend is mechanic and he's going to have him go over the car, I'd rather take loads of precautions and find that there is something wrong sooner rather than later.
My last setup in the civic topped 2nd gear at 80 mph, top of 3rd was 130 iirc. Early shakedown run on ~8 psi, something like a 35 roll to 140 [video=youtube;hh0sNf8jMpM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh0sNf8jMpM&feature=plcp&context=C3f7ec87UDOEgsToPDskIWkwV592tMFSO0LTTh3rN9[/video] No video but on 18 psi the thing barely kept traction going downhill.
On one hand I'm proud of my Rex for being...Well, a rotary, but on the other hand I'm sad at the lack of power and tuning capabilities...

I'd imagine various parts of the car have been damaged due to extreme stress from the impact. Seat belt, steering column, sensitive electronics etc... Also, as many have previously said, there is the safety issue. That car would never re-achieve a four star NCAP rating and driving a car with knackered frame from the last crash means that frame will not be able to take another impact so well. You could instead be driving a 2 star car...
Got my city car back from maintenance, it was a bent rim. Fuck. Curbs.

[QUOTE=Concur;34545162]My car pulls kinda nice to 100 from 60 :v[/QUOTE] My car pulls decently from 0-60, and then the power vanishes.
I've got tons of power bouncing off redline from 0-10 and then it dies

Found some old memory card earlier today and it had pictures from when I was at the Nürburgring in 2008 on it. Ah... the memories. I just uploaded all the pics, so there are a lot of shitty ones, you can see them here: [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/36841978@N03/sets/72157629175676243/[/url] A few of the not so shitty ones: [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7149/6819422209_019cd206a4_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7141/6819421025_d3c1d2cbcf_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7170/6819406585_a8817e4841_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7027/6819372245_440802be49_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7035/6819412943_dff7eda2cf_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7162/6819383491_8c0f63d514_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7160/6819366465_72d65aeff0_b.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7152/6819376579_87f1438155_b.jpg[/img] [b]Look at that widebody kit![/b] [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7155/6819380169_64f8fc68a6_b.jpg[/img] And a video of my dad's lap around the track, this was on winter tires and it was his first lap on a racetrack ever, so nothing special.
