  1. Officially a "Thell Hinganna now" My petrol tank is seeing all time lows. What about you guys.

    1. Rumesh88


      Same here. For a time I can remember manged  for 10 days with only Rs.1000 worth of petrol. Somehow last afternoon I could get a tank full. Going  by the above calculation that should last a whole month now! :D.

      After much research, I ordered a limited edition Tamiya TT-02 '99 Subaru Impreza Monte Carlo.

      It's a kit, so I'm waiting for the hours and hours of building it before I can finally run it! :)

      They're not classified as passenger cars, thus they won't be allowed on the highway. Get ready for lots more darwin award nominations.

  10. Does CVT feels constant acceleration ?

    2. hrm


      Yes. Kick down happen as normal. How the car accelerate and shift gears is some what vague I must say. It might feel awkward at first.

    3. terrabytetango


      not constant acceleration, but there's no gear shifts so th engine RPM stays more or less in the same place while the car speeds up. It won't feel any different, just smoother. If you've ever ridden in one of the new 8 speed bmws, the experience is very similar.

    4. terrabytetango


      Also there is no kickdown, the engine RPMs increase that's all.

    Peugeot 206/207 Vs Toyota Starlet/carat

    Oh man my starlet Ep91 clocks 230000+ km and still going strong. There was a Oil burn issue due to bad value seals, I personally saw the engine cylinders they've not worn. ( we can touch the cylinder and feel the piston ring worn out gap if its worn)
  12. Have you recently checked the CV boots. One of myne have come off. A simple fix costs me a Full CV joint.

    1. terrabytetango


      Yeah you can't get them separately. I was lucky in getting CV joints with CV boots intact.
