Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

It's all about want vs. need, tank. I'm the same way - my F150 is pretty much the best vehicle for me. It offers the right amount of sheer power combined with excellent versatility/utility as well as excellent room and ergonomics. The only thing it's not is a raw car with no holds barred attitude to...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I sat in a Camaro SS over the weekend. There were three impressions I came away with; I now know what it's like to sit in a womb as an adult (I'm 5'9" 220 pounds and could barely fit - let alone with enough space for a human with legs to sit behind me); my leg would be broken in trying to use ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Heading out to CO and UT Wednesday of this week. We're going to spend a couple of weeks mountain biking, backpacking and hiking around. The weather is still looking to be on the cool site up in the mountains, but this is good; won't get warm until we get to Moab. This is when the truck is going to s...

Re: Does this unicorn exist?

I don't know if I mentioned this. So I drove a 2018 Camaro SS with the 1LE package - the handling package with the trick diff, 305 summer tires out back, killer suspension and a bunch of other goodies. Man, that was a fine ride! If it were my second car, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. It's probably the ...

Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

My GTO came with a feature when I shifted into first, it changed radio stations for me.

That's what I call awesome design!

Re: Does this unicorn exist?

I looked into a Camaro SS 1LE(the track pack essentially). Man, those things are sweet. There's a guy that regularly rides the local MTB trailhead and he's got a hitch rack setup on his amazing Z/28 Camaro - the new one. My god, I get a hard on when he starts that cammed beast. But, I basically can'...

Re: Dodge Dart Manuel Woes

Interesting... UConnect is by far the most user-friendly infotainment system on the market. Yeah, I agree with this. I had a few FCA rentals when traveling and Uconnect is good. The only issue I have is having to go through it to use heated seats in the current gen Durango. I'd much rather have a p...

Re: I hate this car

I remember my 08 Rabbit I bought new and had for a few years. I also had a bit of a love and hate relationship with it. Man, that seems like such a long time ago that I had it. i remember your grey rabbit getting hit and dented every time you turned around. my grey '12 jetta was also a dent and din...

Re: Do I need a Turbo Boost Gauge?

That's a nice, clean solution, both on the adapter and the general integration into the steering column cover.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

After days of searching, I think I finally found that annoying creak/click on my MTB. My preliminary tests suggest that it was the lower main suspension pivot bolt. I checked it for tightness during earlier searches and while it was plenty tight, I didn't think to check it for lube earlier. As soon ...

Re: Does this unicorn exist?

Going back to the Jeep, I hear they went with a cable actuated shifter compared to the mechanical on in the JK. Wonder how it/if it would impact shift feel. I'm not all too sure how the 6 speed felt in the JK. Just curious is all. For OP. I feel an even more Unicorn would be anything with an I6 and...

Re: Does this unicorn exist?

I actually like the mechanical old school linkage for the manual tranny. I like to see the shifter move a little when you goose it. Anyhow - good guess Rob. I'm 34. Joined this place almost 10 years ago, when internet forums were probably at their highest popularity before facebook groups replaced t...
