2009: Post Your Ride Thread

Recommended Posts

add me to the ranks of people who are not fans of timing belts. I know chains can eventually slip but they don't tend to have the catastrophic failure like belts do. The best idea, Anyone seen a big block chevy built up with timing gears? Not only is it a strong way of running but it sounds awesome, more mechanical whine!

haha my AWESOME RIDE! lol

 

1991 dodge dakota 114,000miles... was at my dads business as a garbage truck just to carry junk to the giant burn container. With employees driving it they beat the **** out of it. then when it quit running it sat in the parking lot for 3 months. worked on it there and redid the timing and it fired up, drove it home and have been working on it every week since. Started overheating so i replaced the thermostat, and it would turn off after 15minutes of driving cause the sensor in the distributor was bad, went to the junkyard and got a nice one now it runs great. Just came back from the junkyard and got me 2 doors, tailgate, grill. Now i just need tires and a muffler cause the other one peeled off and i had to cut it off with a sawzall lol. hey its a piece of crap but it isn't two slow i just wish it wasn't stinking 2wd that doesnt work on a farm in pennsylvania. i got the truck for free so heck if i get it legal with 500 bucks into it that will be awesome.

Of course mate, does about 210km/h according to the Speedometer, which is a realisic 201 or 202 maybe...

 

After only 320km of driving, I now have a massive nail/screw sticking out the right back tyre... which is not cool at all!

There is for technical errors, but not if you drive into a screw... or at least I doubt it...

I swore for the longest time that someone was pounding nails into my tires, because everyother month I would have one in it. I just got a nail in my new car as well, the dealer patched it up for me, It is likely repairable if it is on the treads.

i hear that `good year ` tires are good , when a screw goes in it you can still drive your car and reach about 60km/h

N.E.A, those are special run-flat tyres, exactly the ones I've got on my car. I've got them from Continental though. The run-flat feature makes them ridiculously expensive though :(
