[QUOTE=Concur;34342483]picspicspics[/QUOTE] It's a pebble beige right now. After I move it to work on it I'll take some pictures of it.
Hmm, I'm not really sure how 'top speeds' are defined on cars. Mine is supposed to be 94mph, but i was going 80 the other day and still had at least another 3000 revs left until i red-lined, surely it could go faster then? Just curious, would probably never attempt it.
It's a speed limiter usually that is set up on the PCM/ECU.
Ohh i see. So once i hit that speed, it will sort of not allow the revs to go any higher, even down a steep hill?

it'd be better if a super asian girl driver stepped out
[QUOTE=rampageturke 2;34342895]they are all MR[/QUOTE] I think what he meant was that they're not MR-2s, the MR-S ones.

I love getting new wiper blades. That first spray-n-wipe is always heavenly

Yes automatic is better than manual when it comes to drag racing.

Well it is. Unless you really know how to shift automatic would be better.
[QUOTE=.FLAP.JACK.DAN.;34345093]Yes automatic is better than manual when it comes to drag racing.[/QUOTE] in theory
Dual clutch automatic with a ratchet shifter is the way to go. You can smoke the manual guys off the line and up to the eighth mile but after that they have a little advantage on you.
Going to call that man about the explorer tomorrow. Hopefully it isnt a POS

um, if you paint right you can get a nice look with a rattle can
[QUOTE=Second-gear-of-mgear;34327963]Speaking of noises and shit with steering parts. Our Lancer has been doing this for a while, while on a rough road it makes metal clinking noises. The noises sound like they're originating from the steering column. It doesn't feel any different from before, no play or anything. It's like this, but more of a metallic sound than a plastic one. [video=youtube;hYyrCNmKi-k]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYyrCNmKi-k&feature=related[/video][/QUOTE] My truck was doing this when I first bought it - it's actually incredibly common in my truck though (05 Silverado 2500). In my truck, the steering shaft goes from the steering wheel down to a universal joint type deal and then out through the firewall horizontally, I guess so that the steering column can collapse in an accident so that the energy can transfer that way instead of back through your body. Anyways, in the 2500 and 3500 Chevys, it is awful common that play develops in the universal joint (and in a bushing nearby, as well). GM's fix has been releasing "new designs" that work for a while, or alternatively injecting some really tacky lube into the joint to take up the space so that it can't rattle, which, again, fixes it for a short time. I can't say for sure that it's the same issue, but it was the intermediate steering shaft and that bushing in the steering column making a clunk noise when i hit bumps in my truck. There's no safety concern, play or anything else in the wheel, it's just an annoying noise.
I got my license back today after my parents called the school and cleared the bullshittery. yay. Also i let dad drive my truck today and he fucked up my trans. His fat ass burnt out 3rd. Atleast it was his fault this time.
[QUOTE=Watevaman;34347096]um, if you paint right you can get a nice look with a rattle can[/QUOTE] Yes except the average person doesn't paint right. I wouldn't trust myself with a spray can. I don't have a drive-way to work with, I need my vehicle regularly, and I don't have very steady hands. Not to mention, the quality of Spray Can paint is awfully low.
