ITT we prove that we actually drive cars outside of video games

I'll start:

FWD is good
>>
>>14172927
Tires make a huge fucking difference
>>
I'm an average skill driver
>>
>>14172948
This. I still make mistakes like everyone else.
>>
>>14172927
I have received tickets.
>>
>>14172927

>OP trying so hard to justify his shitbox.
>>
>>14172927
FF is nowhere near as fun as RR

(note: this is NOT a performance claim)
>>
>>14172927
low revving high displacement v8 engines should only be used in trucks, let alone performance applications.
>>
DDing a bmw in the winter rain on bald summer tyres is genuinely scary, especially at speeds above 70.
>>
>>14172971
What RR do you own?
>>
>>14172927

driving an 01 z28 in heavy rain is fucking terrifying
>>
FWD: "COME ON, GO!"

RWD: "GO ON, GET!"

Choose what you want your ride to say.
>>
>>14173080
Beetle, vastly better experience than a ford fiesta (not ST, RS, whatever), for comparison to another econobox.
>>
I'm an 18 year old who's only been driving for a year and I admit I'm not very good
>>
I got into an accident once and it's because I did some things wrong.
>>
>>14173099
LET'S GO, COME ON
DON'T FORGET THAT I LIKE YOU
>>
I don't know how to drift my MR2 turbo.
>>
Generalizing reliability by brand is retarded.
2009 Honda Civics have the worst interiors in existence.
>>
>>14173146
your dumb

>>14173166
>generalizing reliability by brand
Holy fuck agreed, bad idea.
Toyota is generally pretty reliable but most manufacturers have a wide spread on model reliability.
>>
>>14173107
lmao you have got to be kidding me, get a load of this fag
>>
>>14173005
Tfw have 32 valve Holy power plant
>>
>>14173166

>>
>>14173216
>model reliability.
I'll go even further and say reliability is mostly a question of maintenance, a LOT more so than of model.
>>
Nationalistic shitflinging is silly, because each country has good and bad automakers with varying reliable.
>>
>>14173251
>holy
What would Jesus drive?
>>
ITT people who don't drive in real life try to make out as if they do by saying stupid shit
>>
>>14173269
Muscle truck.
>>
>>14173238
Sure, the fiesta has more power and better suspension design, but numb electric power steering and FWD make it feel the same all the time, just point and go even when pulling something a little crazy. You know where you stand more with the beetle, when you do something right it goes well, and vice versa. It feels like you're really driving something rather than the getting-towed-around-the-road feeling of the Fiesta.

I once got pulled over by the police for driving with my brights on. He then ticketed me for that and for not wearing my seatbelt.
>>
>>14172927
>I've been pulled over once
>I still stall my 5 speed on occasion
>I still don't shift perfectly smoothly
>I also own an automatic
>>14173238
slow car fast.
>>
I yanked my e brake hard enough that I stretched the damn cable
Fake carbon fiber doesn't make you go fast
I'm worried when turning left in an intersection
BMW shitboxes sound like trucks
RWD isn't fun uphill in the snow
I drive 8-10kph over the limit
I always check if I park perfectly, could be OCD
I drive an autotragic
Driving while looking at your phone for a sec isn't fun
>>14173076
ASC and ABS gets confused when you rip a skid
>>
>>14172927

You have these switches on the side of your steering wheel which indicate the direction you wish to turn.

An accord.

True but even good civics have shit for interiors.
>>
>>14172927
Oh great, /hg/ escaped their containment thread again. It's good for econobox DDs, not performance/feelsy cars. Your Civic is not a racecar.

This entire thread is mostly just HERE'S WHAT I BELIEVE AND YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO ARGUE AGAINST IT anyway.
>>
>>14173764
You know if you go up a snowy hill in reverse physics will get you there
>>
>>14173764
>RWD isn't fun uphill in the snow
If you paid for decent tires you'd have no problem
>>
>>14173166
Except 2015 Buicks because there are literally five in America, and they're on par with Toyota

Also my fr layout experience is a second gen ls400, and I suck at skids, and I've never had the chance to drive manual, but I pretended to have a clutch in a 2012 accord when I drove it alone.
>>
>>14173076
me and my mate were on a 70km road trip late at night during some pretty heavy snow. The car was a fully stripped BMW e46 330ci drift missle, hadlow clearance, locked diff and fucking 1-2mm summer tyres on the rear. Constantly going 40-50mph (80kph), passing slower going SUVs sideways as well as taking every corner sideways. Most terrifying ride of my life
sadly he totalled the car 2 days ago, took some brutal beating really well for the last 4 years though.

Only the stupid ones. I head into portland weekly and rarely have an issue with bicyclists. Occasionally there's the one fuckwad in the middle of a lane while there is a bike lane available, but that doesn't seem to happen too often.
>>
>>14173307
You have no idea what you're talking about and you can't make broad statements like that based on that dumb shit
>>
>>14172938
This is what pisses me off about lap times, especially regarding shit like the top gear board.
>hurr [x] is quicker than [x]
Meanwhile one of them has bald economy tyres and the other has brand new semi slicks

Tyres make so much goddamn difference

>Generalizing reliability by brand is retarded.
Feel free to name that unreliable lexus model.

Protip: You can't
>>
>>14173307
You've never driven either.

As someone who has driven a few different beetles and a FiST, only a complete retard would call the beetle more fun let alone better.
They are rolly heaps of slow shit that only feel fun for first 5 minutes, after which you realize you're getting overtaken by minivans and are uncomfortable as hell.

We don't speak of that on this board, sir.
It's like going on /tv/ and talking about the matrix sequels.

>>14175810
Since when has the LS400 ever been unreliable?

Define "low revving". 4000RPM redline? Sure. 6500 or 7000+? That's not really low revving at all.

well, we're not off to a good start. the correct answer is "FWD has it's advantages" I would have also accepted "FWD is okay" please try again.

Personal transportation meaning the car is a way of getting from A to B in one piece and within the legal speed limit.

You don't have to know, just go drive in the rain it'll drift itself.

Like I said, define "low revving".

I fucking HATE driving anywhere near big trucks. Besides the dirt making my car filthy I don't trust them to not run me over.
Though I'm probably paranoid after being rear-ended by two different lifted trucks in two weeks.
