Alright br/o/s, laredo guy here. Getting time off from work st the end of January so I'm probably gonna be driving a Subaru to Screwston. Let's meet up, eat, talk shit, and fucking DRIVE.
ITT: discuss our driving route and what yall fagits wanna eat
texas weather was a bit fucked yesterday mate.
I think northwestern places of texas got snow, and we got cold rain. I was standing outside when you could feel the temperature change from 70s to 50s. pretty cool
Lel. When I was still up north at school, this chick from New Orleans was talking about the one time it ever snowed there (like 1/2") and every school and shop was shut down for a couple days. She was not ready for Chicago winters.
I don't miss it, not gonna lie.
Let's try to get a head count going, post your slab.
I'll be taking one of these, or maybe the outback I just got. Haven't decided.
removed along with wheels for weight saving
Black s2k anon reporting in.
This meet needs to happen allready...
Also, tfw new wheels in tires in the morning
Ford fuckus reporting in,I suggest we have it inside the loop
Good car but it's gonna be dealer marked up as fuck when it goes on sale
Idk, there's inner loop meet that used to happen every Friday night at the best buy on richmond but idk if that happens anymore. Maybe we could meet up at the autozone by Scott killers house or something
save half of it for RS fund. and buy the second model year once dealers are not gouging non pre order prices
for now get something used around 20k
You could pick up a focus st or mustang for that
944 Anon reporting in, need a date and place finalized so I can take off work for this shit
I don't think it's going to be a very good car desu.
Ford cars all feel incredibly cheaply made to me. I wouldn't want one at all.
If you must have AWD and turbo, then your looking at STI, EVO Golf R.
Of those chooses I would buy the EVO (IX), Golf R, then STI.
But hey man if you like it and it turns out to be nice then go for it. Your money.
I can't wait to see this baby in person.
Looks very very clean.
This is old old pic. I'll take some new ones in a few hours with my wheels on.
Are Austinfags allowed? There never seems to be a meet here.
>tfw got front lower control arms replaced, rear bushings replaced, rear tie-rods, and giubo coupler replaced ( did this last one myself )
>Car STILL feels off, still 1/2" of play in the wheel
I don't now what the fuck to do at this point. Pray for my e46.
Sweet. I finally heard back from USPS today, they said they'll give me $50 when I asked for $165 to get a set off ebay in the same condition as yours were. I'm definitely going to appeal it to see if I can get more, even if I could get just the right side foglight by itself $50 wouldn't be enough.
For any curious onlookers to this conversation, this guy is based as fuck and sent me JDM fogs for my car for free, but USPS fucked up and broke one of them in transit. Luckily it had insurance, but nobody's selling just one of them, only in pairs.
I'll check em out. Maybe just ask em for an inspection on my suspension and then I'll handle the rest elsewhere / on my own.
It's fucking kingwood, of course it's white only.
Has anyone ever gotten pulled over for not having a front license plate? I recently got a BRZ that didn't come with one installed and I've never had a car without one so I'm not sure about it.
My BRZ doesn't have a front plate, neither does my RS, nor did my Legacy wagon when I had it. Only been pulled over once in the Legacy, no ticket, I just showed him the bracket I got from the junkyard and said "yeah I just got this..."
Ready whenever here.
Im down. My car's been having all sorts of bad luck lately. It got hit N run first, then the wastegate broke. So I'm making probably 160 @ 0psi rather than 275 @ 12psi.... I'll bring the stupid hooptie anyways.
*c-clip. I'll likely get a fender used on the low too. Man I love having an older model for the abundance of free and cheap parts and parts cars.
I fucking did you nigger, calm down. I'm not from Houston so I had no idea what fairview and montrose was so it didn't register as a street to me. Still didn't see a time other than "the 16th", I need more specific than that since I'm driving in from out of town.
see you at the meet or whenever the ban ends
where the fuck are some good hooning roads on the south side of town ie between Houston and Galveston
is this meet the kind of thing thats worth coming up from dallas for?
By the way, if this Houston Meet goes through, there is a driving road West of Katy.
Why do all the surface roads in Houston appear to be made from sidewalk concrete instead of asphalt? Your roads have lines going across them like on a sidewalk and the material is lighter than most roads. Is the city just cheap or is there another reason? Do they get overly slippery when it rains? I work for FDOT in Florida and heard that we test new types of road surfaces for their ability to be porus and let rain soak through the asphalt into the ground, that concrete looking stuff yall got looks like water would just sit there and pool up, is this accurate?
>Why do all the surface roads in Houston appear to be made from sidewalk concrete instead of asphalt?
Concrete resists vehicle fluids, water, and heat better then asphalt and can go without maintenance longer.
>Your roads have lines going across them like on a sidewalk
>Is the city just cheap
Concrete costs more but is cheaper in the long run
>Do they get overly slippery when it rains?
>that concrete looking stuff yall got looks like water would just sit there and pool up
It does in older/ghetto parts of town but modern drainage design prevents this now
He would be in it for the shock value.
Cruise Route: Ride north from Gay Town, hit 59 and go east, towards 288. Hit 288 north and hit i45 North to ride thru downtown skyscrapers, hit i10 east and go down it till we hit 59/69 south, and go down 288 south all the way till we hit 610. We can eat somewhere near the stadiums, or keep going down until Pearland to eat. Basically a lasso loop thru downtown and finally ending south bound.
Lol dude the downtown part of Houston is garbage. Why do you faggots insist on meeting there? Katy, cypress, spring, the woodlands are all 100x better and not ghetto trash. This is why Houston meets died and secret meets were formed on the north side where it's open. Anything East, south, or inside the loop is garbage tier.
How are the roads?
Im up in the dfw, and I've been considering taking a road trip down to Houston for a bit. Ill probably drive my e46 down, but the old beat up farm roads up here in justin are hell on it already
Anyone go to the Spring Conn's or 24hr Fitness meets on Friday/Saturday nights? I drove through once in my E30 and got the strangest looks from the dozens of bro truck and Mustang drivers.
It was for a road rally. I don't have them on anymore.
Red E30 Vert here. Good to see someone else was enjoying the rain as much as me.
I just got back from sliding around a parking lot on Spring Cypress in this shit. I am also thoroughly moistened because convertible life.
Well fuck. Ive got family down in the Houston/Livingston area that I've been meaning to suprise with a visit, but I've got a buddy who wants to go on down to the Saint Arnold brewery, and the shiner brewery soon. Its a hell of a drive down there, and i have to plan for something like this trip. Hopefully there will be another ride in march.
You XT225 anon in /dbt/? I'd be down for some small displacement shitbiking any day
Using webm for retards, before that I used to type everything out kek
Yep it's fucking hailing, escap d to a parking garage we me to come later
I'll meet when y'all do something on the west side lol
fuck people already suck at driving, hail made it worse
no just long curves that you can take at high speeds and lots of freeways.
So the meet is set for the Autozone on Montrose, on the 16th?
Didn't see anyone mention a time of day tho.
Hopefully new front tire get here in time
I vote NikoNikos, right up th road from the vatozone and might not actually be packed full at 2PM
Get some gyros and spanktopitas(?)
If in Katy (this makes more sense, since we'll have to get off the touge when it gets shit up by rush hour traffic), I don't know, chik-fil-a or Sonic or something
