2010: Official Post Your Ride Topic

Recommended Posts

Holy f-word. I saw that Queenz had posted and was pretty sure of seeing a nice Infinity, but this... this is simply amazing. That's one awesome ride. What engine you have on it? Is it all wheel drive? :thumbsup:

Thanks!

 

Yep it's all wheel drive. But runs in rear wheel during regular driving and sends power to all four wheels when needed. The engine is the 3.5L VQ35VHR engine putting out 306 HP.

 

Here's some more pictures back during April:

306 HP for a 3.5L is quite nice. Forgot to ask earlier if it makes a nice sound when you rev it up, especially in tunnels?

Can any of you beat a 2000 Cavalier Turbo? haha... not really. It's just a boring Cavalier with 20,000 some miles on it. The only thing new this year to her is a fake Turbo badge stuck right below the Cavalier badge. It was on the clearance rack, I thought it'd at least be good laughs. :)

I have a 2000 Chevrolet S10 Pickup. It's very basic as far as features go. It's a 5 speed manual tranny with a 2.2L I4. It has 205K miles lol so it's definitely getting up there. I'm in desperate need of new u-joints and new plugs/wires. Just replaced the alternator (i blame high mileage and subwoofer.. lol) and the starter. Other than that it's running great, not burning a drop of oil. I have a JVC KD-HDR20 head unit powering my 4 speakers and a Rockford Fosgate P300-1 424Watt RMS 1200Watt Max Mono Amp powering an MTX Thunder Thin 65 12" 400Watt RMS subwoofer. It sounds pretty great and I hit 130dB at the shop that put it in. Here's some pics after a wash (and a 20mile HWY drive back home.. lol) These pics were taken with my phone so they aren't upmost quality lol

Here's some new pics of my ride:

I sold the old wheels and bought these instead not for the looks (these are pretty good, but the old ones were cooler), but for performance. I had 215/40 R18's in front and 245/35 R18's at the back on the old rims, which made for understeer beyond belief, as well as rubbish fuel economy. Now I have 225/40 R18 on all four, which makes for excellent handling and better fuel economy. The understeer is practically eradicated! I might have to adjust the camber a tiny bit to get rid of the last bit of understeer, but I'm not yet sure if I want to do that!

King, what the hell were you doing with tires that fat on the rear? :lol: Its good you went to a normal size on everything. Save the fat rear tires for when you hit up a drag strip. :P New ones look good though, I like that design.

 

Btw, I still want your Beemer.

That's the stock combination BMW sells with the car, so I just got that thinking it was all well... It wasn't lol! Last night I finally fitted the sports seats I bought last week, it's so much better!
