not calling anyone a cuck, but if these guys are fine with giving Tesla all their ride share profits there’s no telling what they’d do.
This is insanity level fanboi. I bet this guy would let Elon come to his house and fuck his wife as well :)
it was fine, thankfully all the rocks were under the car :) But I do have a nice chip on my driver’s side fender from something - I didn’t notice it or I’d have paid the shop to fix it while they were replacing my front bumper after a lady backed into it a year ago
I took my ND to Deal’s Gap last week - the airbnb we stayed at was down a 2 mile gravel road. When we were leaving Waze had be go the opposite way that we came in - did not realize Waze was only looping me around to come back past our cabin, but it was some hairy off-roading for about a mile and it took about 1/2 hour…
I have friends who say “If you have haters, you must be doing something right!”
If they offered them with motorcycle engines, I’d be interested.
20 years in STL, originally from NY.
For the Miata person - I’d say keep the NB, and buy a cheapish normal car to DD. You can update the NB nicely for a lot less than a ND2 will cost you.
Yeah that’s why I’d want the ST. Still impressive to see what they make from a little 1.0
Even though I was going to get something else after selling my ‘15 FiST, I was really curious to try the new version with the 3 cyl.
I would be interested in trying one. I’m in STL - I wish they had a list of locations where it’s available.
The sad thing is that for what you pay for a sandwich and chips from Jimmy Johns, you can get a decent sandwich at a normal sandwich shops with better ingredients. But still there are times I go “Fuck it - Jimmy John’s it is” because of convenience.
Yeah the FiST’s torque down low, especially with a tune is really nice. It’s not really a high revving motor, but still a blast to drive.
I didn’t go right from the Fit to the FiST, though I did test drive a 2014 FiST while i had the Fit. I only kept the Fit about 8 months and replaced it with a ‘06 Miata Grand Touring.
I had a 2013 Base Fit - stick of course - and really liked the way it handled and hauled things. It was sadly hampered by the engine though - it had 117hp but it felt really gutless and very detached from the gas pedal. It’s not an issue with the total power - I’ve owned 110hp ‘92 Sentra and a 110hp ‘09 Accent hatch…
I figured I’d check STL-PHX since my wife hates flying - $640 one way for one of the 2 bed rooms, and a 50 hr trip. Grayhound is only $250 cheaper - and only takes 34 hrs. Either way, I think I’d rather lose a limb than take the train or a bus for a trip that takes 3 1/2 hours by plane
I DD my ND, but I run Pirelli Snowcontrols in the winter. Never been an issue - I don’t want a heavier, slower Miata.
My 2nd car was a ‘81 Accord hatch- my 1st stick car, with the little 5Speed emblem on the back. I got it in ‘92 for $600 - it was maroon with the same interior color as this car.
That’s a horrible situation - you would think they would see all of these failures happening so soon after the recalls as a sign - especially when the cars showed no evidence of this prior to the recall. But instead they put the blame on the owner. Love the Toyobarus - hoping they get your sorted, and I would…
I have a tune on my ‘17 ND1 - the “bigger” gains (but still way short of what you can do with a turbo obviously - my former car was a ‘15 FiST) are in the upper end of the rev range (rev limit also raised from 6750 to 7250) but it also sharpens up the throttle a bit. I paid $400 for my used OFT tuner - the off the…
