Nice, I thought those came with an LSD stock?

 

Mk7 didn't, but you could get a warranty friendly Quaife unit fitted by a Mountune garage.

 

I have a Wavetrac in mine which is a bit more track focused.

 

How's the Lexus project?

Temporarily abandoned. I don't have anywhere warm to work on it, plus I the rear seat backrest has a bolt that's stuck, it turns but it doesn't come out so I need to pry it out somehow. I've also been busy basically all of summer. I did get some wheels for it so I have a better tyre choice, but they don't fit over the brakes without spacers and with spacers, they stick out an illegal amount so I have to get rid of those wheels now. I think I'll just stick to stock.

Nothing fancy but treats me well so I treat it well. Sorry for glare. Pic is from when I bought a new set of wheels for it and put on the winter tires. May just be a CUV but I love driving this thing. Mazda really knows how to make it feel raw for what it is.

Lots of familiar faces in here!!!

Since I haven't been active in some time, here's what I've been driving for the last year.  Still a lot of stuff to do to it, as usual.  At least now, I live in a better place so my stuff is usually left alone now. :)

Well I thought I got a descent deal last summer when I bought a 2003 Nissan Frontier. I brought my mechanic and paid him to inspect it before I closed the deal. "Looks great," as he took my money. FFS that truck has been sitting at his shop or dead in my driveway since. Pretty much everything you can think of is wrong with it. I can fix nuclear reactors, or computers, or PLCs, but I am clueless about cars. Always have been. Got it back last night after they "unclogged the cats". I drove it about halfway home and every light in the dash came on, even ABS, seatbelts, and parking brake light. Now this morning it won't turn over. Just Clcckckckckckckckck. Sounds like relay chatter to me so maybe solenoid or something. Battery read 12v on my meter. I tried push starting it since it's a stick and it still wouldn't turn over. I'm about to set fire to it I swear.

Oh no. no. You don't unclog catalytic converters without replacing them. The best you can do is use the bottled temporary bandaid solutions to keep it going for a little bit.

 

As for the battery you have a parasitic draw somewhere more than likely. Or your battery just had high internal self discharge and needs to be replaced. Depends. Most car batteries are lucky to make it 3 or 4 years so if it's old replacing it can be considered preventative maintenance. Better to do it now than stuck in a parking lot somewhere.

Well the 4 new cats are probably worth more than the truck at this point lol.
