What makes you rage /o/?
For me it's this flat tire in the pic that just fucking happened, and my mom starting the car when its running, as well as people driving cars when they're cold.
I agree, my mom has a light foot, that's why I don't get mad, but when I'm walking home from work in the morning i'll see these idiots flooring it with a cold engine, and fuel damn near spraying out the exhaust and I can smell it.
They've done studies on this. I don't have any citations on it, so I guess it's just a comment, but the amount of difference in wear warming your car vs driving it lightly the first few miles was negligible. As long as you're going easy on the car, the only difference is your comfort.
You're right, they are fucking ugly, I actually want to Hyundai 17 inch alloys from the SE and limited trim for my moms car, It's a crappy GLS trim with the V6 engine redeeming it.
Mentally underdeveloped drivers in cheap piece of shit trashed cars. Chavs, for those who are familiar with the term.

Ill take this bait with open arms. You are that guy who thinks their chevy malibu 4cyl is the american racecar. You are that guy who brags about his 325i torque not knowing what a diff gear ratio is. Go back to your facebook memes and XD posts on how you blew a honda out of the water
I actually wouldn't race a 4cyl car, cause they suck, But man, If I can get behind the wheel of a 250hp car that spins tires on the freeway,I'll go and enjoy myself, especially if all I have to do is look after the maintenance.

Actually, even if you go below 2500RPM it's the torque that kills the bearings that aren't oiled in yet.
idling puts little stress to the engine while pushing your car on low RPM means high stress towards moving parts.
This instead turns to uneven weari bearings instead of full wear.
And no, it's not better. If you wear one side you still need to change both sides.
That hasn't been a problem for years. Modern oiling systems already make up for that, and even if it didn't idling an engine puts the bearings under just as much stress as easy driving. That is to say almost none.
People don't spin their bearings driving easy. It happens from either oil starvation or driving hard.
While synthetic oil ridiculously much better than mineral oil it still takes some time for it to penetrate into the bearings and into the camshaft.
I'm not one of those that say idle 10 minutes, I mean 15-20 seconds before driving away.
That's pretty reasonable. I take ~15 seconds after starting anyway to put my seat belt on and plug my phone in.
I know people who start their car up like, 15 minutes before they leave which I find unnecessary.
Well, I mean... no.
>Actually, even if you go below 2500RPM it's the torque that kills the bearings that aren't oiled in yet.
...which would be an issue if you dismantled your engine and wiped every drop of oil from every surface after every drive
>idling puts little stress to the engine while pushing your car on low RPM means high stress towards moving parts.
negligible in either situation
>This instead turns to uneven weari bearings instead of full wear.
And no, it's not better. If you wear one side you still need to change both sides.
that's not how it works mate
I think someones's a little mad, I have the money to buy a little shitty car, but i don't want to, I enjoy being able to hold onto money and put it towards something better.
driving when cold does nothing unless youre literally redlining the engine.
even then, ive heard of people saying you need to thoroughly warm up 2 strokes, i daily drive a 2 stroke motorbike and have never warmed up and dont really take it easy on her ever, been doing this for a year and it has never seized on me
A warm engine before you leave is nice, but not necessary.
What is necessary however, is allowing enough time from start up to let the oil make a lap around the engine before driving it.
This idiot I knew in highschool ran out to his fwd shit box and fired it up, instantly slammed it into reverse and floored it trying to do a sick jturn out of his parking spot.
He got his Jay turn, but spun a bearing before even leaving the lot.

No problem, he's probably broke down or some shit.

THIS FUCKING CUNT NIGGER OLD MAN PARKED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD IN A 40MPH LIMIT JUST SO HE COULD USE HIS FUCKING PHONE WHAT A FUCKING RETARD SERIOUSLY WHAT KIND OF SHITMUNCHER THINKS THIS IS ACCEPTABLE
>transmission getting warmed up
>drives an old shitty hyundai
That's exactly the correct way.
Waiting just some seconds for oil pressure and then driving away. An engine is a concoction of piece and it doesn't warm up all over if it isn't driven. Warming up stationary takes longer and doesn't warm the engine equally.
It's not too bad if you don't go full out race car before it has a chance to warm up. I usually drive gently at 2k RPMs or under until the oil is warm. That gives the oil and transmission time to warm up properly.
When it gets cold, I let my car warm up for 5-15 minutes. Depends on how much time I have to spare in my morning routine.
I don't do it for the engine, or the transmission. In fact, I actually just wait for the heater inside my cabin to bring the temps to a toasty temperature. Fuck driving in a cold car. Also, the heated seats take a little while to heat up as well.
I know, right? It's not like it's in a enclosed space, connected to a combustion engine that's giving off high amounts of heat.
No i'm not a neet, I explained that I work and I am saving money for a nicer vehicle, I just paid 86 fucking dollars for a new tire for it that I would have loved to spend on something else.
That just takes longer since the heater also takes heat from the engine.
Easiest and fastest way to get heat is to drive, with the heater off, and in a couple miles youll already have heat and the engine will get to temp much faster.
A suggestion from a fellow wagekek: consider a second part time job. Especially in a tire shop at this time of the year, failing that, something car related in general. Get your foot in the door and double your pay, get some car experiance while you are at it,
No. Just no. Get seurity+ and Cisco networking certs. A+ is geeksquad tier shit. Buy the training books for security and networking, take the free practice exams online until you memorize that shit, then pay for the tests and take them at your local college. I'm working on my BAS in networking and getting an AS in security alongside it. Security is where you want to be if you plan on making any money
>geeksquad tier shit
You're actually right, I torrented an a+ book and I noticed all the shit in there was stuff I already knew when it came to hardware and windows, I'll definitely consider the other certs.
About tow times this has happened, Sometimes my mom will forget that the car is running, and she'll turn the key as the motor is running, It makes the most horifying sound, and is not healthy for the starter, or flywheel.
no i mean i didn't know it was possible to be such a retard as to forget your car is running, what situation would you be in when that even happens, a drive thru?
you got some bad genes, anon
The times is happened were when my mom parked the car and left it running, she saw me leave the store and tried to crank it, making the terrible noise. I try my best to look after this vehicle, my mom's destroyed cars in the past by not maintaining it or overheating the shit out of it. White women, what can you do?
I work at a parts store. I hate colloquial names for obscure parts. Like instead of just using the proper nomenclature for shit like saying a tie rod end or spark plug harness people ask for all kinds of outrageous shit.
>let me get a turtle for an 83 Honda Accord and also some virgins fingers for a 97 F150.
>I'm pretty sure we don't sell pets or body parts here dude
Bonus points for when it's Mexicans asking for parts using random terms in Spanish like orejas de burro (donkey ears lol u wot m8) and then get pissy when u don't immediately know what the fuck their asking for
This. I start the car first thing, then do everything else like seat belts, getting my music ready, figuring out where the fuck I put my driving glasses on the cup holder like I always do god damn I'm dumb, and by then it's been a minute or so and the car is pretty much ready to go.

Cars, burn fuel more efficiently when warmed up, It's also good to warm the engine up, because the oil's lubricity is better at a higher temp.
10-15 seconds before driving.
In winter I give it a minute or two if the temps are in the negative (Celsius). Car oil is pennzoil platinum synthetic. The piston slap from the cold temps is annoying though, common problem on Subaru's.

As for rage thread:
> ignorant dad insisting on anything I like is bad, anything German is good
> being poor and not managing to enjoy anything
That's not a lie anon, If it's at an rpm where it's making alot of torque, and I punch the gas, the wheels will break loose and make the front of the car wave back and forth, it's kinda scary. desu,
Back when I didn't have a car I borrowed my mom's 2014 cruze. I used the remote start, by the time I got in the car I forgot I already started it. I went to crank it over but nothing happened.
>tfw engineers thought ahead and put in a system for idiots like me who try to start a car that's already running
Fucker was so quiet I forgot it was on. No harm done tho
I just got back in, Here's the car, I don't have a dyno sheet though, So you'll have to take my word.
I'm normally a very placid driver. There was this one time though.
>be driving on motorway
>passing some people in middle lane

the person in the SUV was clearly just like "hurrrrr, I cannot bear the fact that someone is more successful than me, so I must find some other way to assert my dominance". Or at least, that's the mindset I projected onto them. Regardless, it was some unbelievably cunty driving.
people who don't check their oil when they know their car burns oil.
had a friend call me up "why is there an oil light on when the car was idling"
he had less than half a quart inside his entire engine... proceeded to mix different weight oils and conventional/synthetic.
It's more than that I hope.
>dual front donuts
I never claimed it does a fucking smokeshow while i'm speeding down the highway. I can just feel the front tires spinning a little faster than the back at WOT.
>somebody leaves a massive door ding on my drivers side

I always park from people too. Both times I go dinged were in places where I had no choice and had to park next to people.

Cloth seats. Think about farting.
Think about it. It just goes right into the fucking seat and presumably stays there. Absolutely disgusting. Buy a 140k shitmobile with cloth seats and enjoy 140k worth of farts.
Speaking of people running motors cold....
You hear some shockers around trawler berths. These guys have big diesels with lots of torque and they use it. Slam them into full ahead, back into full astern, clouds of black billowing out etc etc.
But often you can hear a trawler skipper fire up a dead cold motor and throw it into gear with plenty of beans and off they go. You can dead set hear the rattle and exhaust note change as oil finally reaches the rockers standing on the wharf.
CLATTER CLATTER CLATTER CLATter clatter clatter
There is one in particular that I'm thinking of that has a wet exhaust where the exhaust gas is mixed with the raw sea water after it has been used to cool the motor and transmission before discharge overboard. This shithole of a boat leaves a dirty big oil slick behind it every time until it's warm as they hammer the shit out of it with some sort of lube problem (maybe stem seals, turbo seals, who knows).
You know what makes me rage?
You. You fucking lazy piece of shit. Look at all that fucking break dust. Its fucking filthy and usually a sign of a woman driver. Also your fucking tire is fucking dirty as fuck too. Fucking wash your shit you lazy nigger.
Other then you:
New Mexican Drivers (they don't turn right on reds)
Holy shit. The car culture in my area has been polluted recently by fake farm boys who buy pickups with Realtree AP stickers, wear camouflage and Chevy hats, and vape constantly. Their trucks are always spotless and they will ALWAYS try to race anybody and everybody.
>I used to go down to the loop (where we meet) in my first car, a 2001 Dodge Neon
>tfw I raced many Chevy and ford half tons and won
>driving more than 5% under the speed limit on highways
If you live in America, where almost all cars are at least 100hp it's really annoying. But in europoor it's sometimes obvious. Too many flip -prone (at higher speeds) miniboxes with super small engines.
BTW, how should I call myself if I'm interested in cars etc but not own o approved (RWD, fast etc) car bruh?
I hear some say its better to just start driving strait away to get the oil to temperature quicker than just idling
mind that it does not get very cold here aside from near the mountains
>people driving cars when they're cold
It takes literally two minutes to warm up once I start driving. That's literally out of the driveway and halfway out the village I live in.
Or out of the car park at work and partway down the road.
Of course, every morning is driving the car while I'm cold. It takes a few minutes more for the heater to kick in, but oh god when it does it's so warm.
I just crank it all the way up, fuck the thermal shock to my system when I get out into subzero cold.
What makes me rage, though?
The concepts of giving way, letting people out of junctions, and three lane motorways are foreign there.
My sat-nav. She speaks up at the worst moments, or lights up with full brightness at night sometimes, wiping out my nightvision.
> Badly-maintained cars
Why did you let it RUST? Don't you KNOW how much smoke's spewing out your exhaust? Can't you smell it? Can't you see the cloud? Fuck, I can see it AND smell it, go get your turbo fixed.
Followed a car for a few miles once, wincing every time it went over a bump, because the exhaust was literally hanging off it. It seemed to be going to a mechanic, though.
Even when they work, they stink. Especially the biofuel ones. They have dedicated lanes, fuck up light timings, delay me, and stop the whole damn town when they stop to let old people off.
WATER SHOULD STAY ON THE FUCKING GROUND. Not suspended in the air like this. And clouds should be higher up.
> Temporary flooding due to bad drainage
Waves higher than my fucking car sometimes. Just clear the fucking drains, and shape the road so the water flows off instead of staying!
>I have the money to buy a little shitty car, but i don't want to, I enjoy being able to hold onto money and put it towards something better.
Good. However, you should drive a cheap falling apart little shitbox sometime. Everybody should, if only to value how good a newer car is.
It IS an investment, considering how much less I'm paying to finance and maintain it versus fixing a shitbox that ran over a rust monster once.
And it's more an investment in my well-being anyway, because the heater works and doesn't reek of burning oil, the brakes don't strain my knee, and the clutch isn't heavy as fuck.
And I don't have to keep squirting WD-40 onto the gas pedal to make it move properly.
Once you get a Real Job, save up a grand or so, and buy an old hot hatch. Power steering, but nothing else. Drive it until it dies, bring it back from the dead with cheap parts, and kill it again. Then go back to your regular, newer, nicer car and love it even more.
But you'll never forget that shitbox you just didn't care about breaking.
Aw yeah man I know how to appreciate a newer car, the sonata I do get to drive isn't perfect either, it needs alot of work, Rotors n pads, a new cv axle, and one of the valve covers is leaking a tiny bit. Hell, I might even throw on a new accessory belt since it's 6 years old.
