ABS is practically standard on every vehicle. It acts as more of a safety device rather than a sports innovation, but it's there nonetheless. Very few vehicles today don't have ABS, but it is usually an option for it anyway.
V12s are more awsom than they are made out to be sometimes. Yeah, their big and heavy, with 6 rows of cylinders, but those things push some power. Though, finding a car that uses one is scare, and probably not sold in the U.S.. Now transplanting a V12 into a Toyota pick-up is gonna take some work. V12s, like I6s are long powerplants, and need adequate hood space to fit inside. Depending on the displacement, it may or may not fit... nothing a little body and chassis work won't fix.
A Camaro with boggers... I'll think of the image one of these times.
I just got a mag ad of DAY Motor Sports in the newest issue of Circle Track Magazine. It has dampers for sale starting at $250-300. I thinks theirs racing shocks, though.
Yeah. It's a cycle in production and marketing; one has something appealing and effective, the others will have it eventually down the line. Once they introduced ABS, they were scarce at first, but now, virtually every car has it. Same with transversly mounted engines FFs.
It's commonly praised in reviews for this very fact, which I thinks make the M3 special in terms of sports cars. In terms of engines, BMW makes an array of engines, ranging from turbocharged I4s, to massive V12s that you can use in small airplanes. I've driven stick a few times... it's not a strongsuit of mine but it's a work in progress. I'll leave it at that.
Suspension set-ups go anywhere from $500-700 for stabilizers/anti-roll bars, to $12,000-16,000 for an entire customisable set. $3000 for 3 shock is $1000 per shock. Although a bit pricy, It's fairly reasonable depending on the size of the four-wheeler. That's as much though I can give at the moment.
Yeah, options would help, wouldn't they. But alas, that day has yet to come. I suppose it would have the same innovative touch that the Limited-Slip Differential had when it was first implemented. Same with when they introduced Active Yaw Control.
When you're used to driving stick, or auto, transitioning from that to a pedal-shifter (also known as a Clutchless Sequential Manual), and back again is pretty difficult. I guess that's why certain people have trouble driving Ferraris from late times, because they use pedal-shifters. Off-hand, the BMW M3 is the only car I know that offers all three transmission types. Which is impressive, because most other cars offer only automatics, or manuals. In the case of the M3's market competitors, automatics, or Semi-autos.
You know... the usual "couldn't-pay-the-bill-on-time" type thing. It's quite a pain the ass to get it back too.
Correct. Not every transmission will work every modification you make. And even if it does, simply equipping it isn't enough. The right parts and adjustment need to be mended according to several perameters. Some don't think enough about this, and [literally] end up ruining a car.
Hence why automatics can only do so much. The only reason people buy automatics are because they're simple to operate... also part of the reason people are turned away from car only offered with a manual other than not knowing how to drive stick. But luckely, there exist semi-automatics that provide the best of both worlds.
Sorry for the late reply. I had no internet service for awhile.
Last time I saw any dragons was around Chinese New Year. Next month is Dragon Boat festival so there may be more then.
How'd I get here? Almost by accident. Two years ago I applied for a teaching job through Teach For America, which would station you someplace in the US that really needed teachers. I didn't get in, but then offers from similar companies popped up. One of them was this Disney English thing. I applied, didn't hear any thing for almost 6 months, then had an interview April 2012 and was hired on the spot.
Did I? Whoops.
Let's see..if you're a shopper there's loads of shopping in the big cities, and where I live there's also a couple of zoos, a couple theme parks, and of course the West Lake is a big attraction. People also line dance in parks or fly kites and they'll let pretty much anyone join in. The bar scene here's pretty hot too, if you're into that.
10) Swedish Fish. Have not been able to find them over here at all. 9) Being able to actually flush TP. Their septic systems here are horrible, you throw away when you're done. In a large office space like mine, that's disgusting. Make it easier to find OTC drugs. Many stores here don't have a health and beauty section, it's just beauty. They have separate stores for OTC stuff, but they're horribly weak drugs and unless you can read Chinese or know the drug names, you're stuck. 7) Internet that doesn't cop out on you every other day, and didn't require a VPN so you can actually do anything. 6) Queue systems that actually were considered queues, and not just bullpen rushing
5) The lack of 'red taping' 4) Being able to return something that didn't work or was broken without being read the riot act
3) Public transport that was reliable(ish) 2) Law enforcement that was reliable(ish) 1) Traffic laws that were actually enforced. Especially that last one. People here drive like madmen.
It might be. I know there's English tests that are mandatory to pass in many Chinese schools, while many other parents treat it like a must-have luxury item to go with their Mercedes cars and Prada handbags.
Yeah, he owns a chain of English training schools all across China over here, and I work at one of them. He's pretty much the same here as he is back in the States. He's been extra busy as he plans on opening a new Disneyland in Shanghai in another year or two.
I take it that's why a lot of sports car manufacturers develop their own trans to implement on high-power cars. The McLaren F1 (at a time, the world's fastest production car) had a custom transmission, because no existing transmission could handle the torque of the BMW V12 mounted to it. However, doing this not only takes time, but it also cost a lot of money, and can shoot the consumer price way up in the world of production vehicles. Yeah, you could go with a automatic, but it can only do so much. The gears, as far as I know, are part of the transmission. The Gear Ratios I can't exactly put into words, but I know what it is. Adjusting them is the difference of an acceleration, or top speed bias, as long as you keep it within the power band.
