Do I really want to know what counts as a non-critical part in an airplane engine?

How the hell do you break a cam shaft? Or would that be simply from a casting flaw?

My Miata did that exact same thing. I changed the camshaft and kept driving it.

When I sold my MSP, at 37,000 miles the LSD was going. I was told by the tech I know at the dealer (I traded it in for a 07 Mazdaspeed3 GT) that it was over $8k in repairs to get my car all back together.

Any other Florida AIers might back me up on this one, but every time it rains here it seems like everyone driving has never actually driven in the rain before.

SPOILERS: It rains every single day here half the year.

So, what was the issue, here? Improper welder settings? Too small of a welder? Not using gas? lovely flux wire?

Poor fit up, improper technique, not enough shielding gas.

I've known people who have had stretched tires for years on their daily and that never happened.

I wonder if casting a thickish little tab in the header where the crack started would've prevented it from cracking ever.

Yes, but that fraction of a cent in material could have been taken out of some CEO's bonus you fool!

Personally, I would drive the poo poo out of that car. It's not hella flush and it has a tasteful bumper and looks clean as gently caress. Just a dumb owner, I'll bet.

Are we looking at the same car here? You mean the Integra with the ugly Skyline front aero, vented side skirts, wangan wing, eBay EURO TAILS, and muffler shop wheels?

You would never in a million years see anything come out of my shop that looks like that. I wish I had a customer spending $250k on a build too.

Good time to post me changing the tires on my 720.



My legs were previously under the frame about a second before the jack tipped over. The truck seemed perfectly fine after though.

With s13's a lot of people jack the car up by the framerails because they are there, and flat, and easily visible, except they dent when you do that, even if they arent rusted. They are notoriously weak.



That is seriously EVERY S13.
