Howdy! I've been into cars my whole life. Been a member of a national car club since I was 11. Prefer and own JDM, but love all vehicles from lifted trucks to lowered sports cars and motorcycles.

There's a defect in the yellow paint, so they are recalling all the yellow stingers, repainting them, and giving the owners a lifetime warranty on the paint job. Seems like Kia is doing the right thing here. Good for them. https://drivetribe.com/p/theres-a-big-problem-with-the-kia-L1fbwzyiS4OGmcC31eD5SQ?iid=Im9Nx0CpSvq_vx30I1wA8A&utm_campaign=main+&utm_medium=fb&utm_source=organic

I remember this happening with Honda too at one point, I forget which car, I think certain color Civic maybe? They had a bad batch where the paint would start lifting. They would warranty sending it to a body shop for repaint.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Impressive. They are not messing around with taking a shot at the sports sedan market place!

[]Maggie Johnson

This really surprises me but I’m glad they’re doing something about it the right way

[]Ernie Szots

Kia and recalls are like peanut butter and jelly. You expect one with the other. Paint though? Jeez. Ball breaking aside, I think the Stinger is interesting. I was tickled to see Injen have a lightly modified one at their SpoCom booth last weekend.

Good to hear that they're standing by what they make.

So, i've been having this internal dilemma for a while now. On one hand, I want to represent my local car clubs, wheelwell, and my favorite brands on my car. But on the other hand, I feel that with my car in particular there's isn't a great way to have decals and also keep the car looking clean. I just can't help but feel like decals will take away from the car. To make matters worse, I have rear

[]Tom Armstrong

Are you the type that goes to car shows and opens the hood? If so how about putting all of the decals under the hood?

I used to have several under my hood until the car went full race mode. If you get a bolt-in roll bar one day you can put decals on that too, but aside from those options I dont know man. Your care looks great and I personally dont like a ton of fan-boy decals.

[]Jon Dagata

THIS! I've been thinking about this! I think i'm going to do the inside of my hood. It's the one place that gets a lot of views at meets when it matters, but doesn't take away from the exterior in my opinion! Thanks for the idea!

[]Tom Armstrong

No problem buddy, happy to help

[]Hayden Baker

Yeah I like that idea. I love under hood art (even when it's a little weird. Some people go hard on a theme). I'm a big fan of Rising Sun hoods inside or out. I was going to do something for mine until I decided to make it a lift off hood

I always keep my eye on Prime day for a variety of deals. Leading up to it, I've been opening the app each day and entering the giveaways. No expectation of winning anything, but it would be cool if I did and you have no chance if you don't enter, right lol?

So nice. Why o why do we not have those loose but good car meets here? All so planned, insurance hassle.

Yeah, this meet was just a little gathering. They get together on Monday evenings. There's a handful of meets that meet weekly around here. I'm part of the Facebook messenger chat of all the leaders of the groups and they all have a different day of the week. It's nice.

I do wish we would be able to pull a larger number of attendees though.

Just got my quickshifter for my FZ09 installed. I have to say, this thing is super cool. It's actually an OEM option that comes installed on all of the FZ09's in Europe, but i'm thinking they cut costs in the US and didn't include them. So I picked it up , installed it, and now I can upshift without using the clutch. It's basically just an electronic solenoid that is triggered when my foot pulls up on the shift

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Justin Andreotti

That’s interesting that they took them out. Maybe it didn’t reach some kind of safety regulation in the US. Super cool you were able to pick one up and install it though

[]Randy Gross

Mostly cost is the reason why. The 1000cc sportbikes (which are some of the priciest) come with quickshifters. The BMW S1000RR came with it standard, I think the R1's and GSX R-1000s do as well now. The one on the BMW S1000RR is trick it lets you do downshifts AND upshifts.

[]Justin Andreotti

How much modification was required to get your shifter to work? How much more expensive is it to buy the quick shifter?

[]Randy Gross

Myself, I got the Bazazz QS4 and it costs me ~$400. But it was a part of the Bazazz electronics setup for the CBR1000RR I ordered. Installation wasn't that hard. Hardest part for me was having to remove the plastics to run the electrical connections to the tail section, but that is mostly down to Honda making the '08 bodywork like a complex origami puzzle!

[]Justin Andreotti

That’s not too bad but I could see. Although I can see 400 bucks for every motorcycle production adding up and could see them cutting that for costs. And if I’ve learned anything from working on vehicles it’s the easiest looking shit can be the most pain in the ass

[]Randy Gross

LOL yup! Thankfully the kit I ordered had extra long rods and all the electrical connectors so I didn't need to make any parts store runs. But it still was a few hours to install and get the shift points right.

[]Jon Dagata

Yeah, they were on backorder for months. I finally was able to get one for a decent price and it was totally worth it. haha

I've never understood why every motorcycle doesn't come from the factory with small metal hooks under the seat to lock a helmet to. It just seems like a no brainer to me. Since my FZ09 didn't have one, I decided to make one. (All while grilling some chicken on the grill!) I took some leftover metal strapping from when I installed my garage door openers. Cut a piece off with a band saw. Then I used channel locks, pliers, and a

Any of you see this? This wing actually turns and pivots in line with the steering to help with cornering downforce. Adjustable spoilers is nothing new, but this thing just looks so goofy in action. https://www.carthrottle.com/post/heres-the-mad-rear-wing-of-the-zenvo-tsr-s-in-action/

What's the longest trip you've ever taken my car? How many hours and how many miles was it? My longest was 3 full days going from Arizona to Ohio helping a friend move across the country.

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Wilson Oberholzer

The longest trip I've ever taken was over 1100 miles one way to go stay with some friends in Florida. It took about 19 hours to get there just because the people riding with me wanted to keep stopping. I made it to within like 30 minutes of my friends place before I had to stop driving because I felt like I was going to fall asleep at the wheel. It's a much better trip if you're well rested before you start out.

[]Timothy Markworth

I did a round trip that was apparently 440mi (thought it was way longer) in a single day to help someone do some network repairs at a hotel. I drove roughly 3/4 of it myself. Technically got "lost" on the way back, but that's because I was following road signs and forgot which way we exactly took to get there. It cost less than 10 miles as I was still on course.

As a kid, we drove from SoCal to Guatemala in an RV. Was over 5k miles round trip. The most I've personally driven is between 300-400 miles. SoCal to Vegas, or SoCal to Flagstaff, AZ.

Anyone else have different size tires on the front and back?

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Craig Crall

Tire stagger can be a very useful tool for balancing handling traits, especially when weight bias favors one end of the car. I've run staggered wheel and tire combo's ever since I had my first car.

There is a substantial amount science behind staggered tire fitments and over the years I've tried to grasp a bit of it, My take away is that it is that it should be used in conjunction with other other chassis tuning methods to make it worthwhile and it won't always result in faster cornering or acceleration; lot of factors at play.

[]Ernie Szots

My bro-in-law, who's getting more into tracking his full bolt-on and tuned Civic SI, just went to a staggered fitment. The guys on the 8th Gen forum guided him on going wider up front and a bit more narrow in the rear. He paired that with a track alignment that included a little camber. He was just telling me yesterday about how it's completely changed the handling.
