Reverse and go!

The previous owner decided to cut the seat belts, because he was too fat or some shit. And me and my father nigger rigged the seatbelt from another car, but there was no bracket to hold the locking mechanism in place so we got the one from the back seat and I need to pull it out every time.

Start car than w8 20-30s and slowly drive off.

Also noticed a lot of you fags reverse out, why not park the vehicle so it's facing the road? That way less cold and badly lubricated shifts will be made. The absolute state of Veeky Forums

K04s are actually very cheap, and moreover very strong. Mine runs 19 psi all day every day with 140k miles under its belt. Anyway my morning ritual is

Had a speed 3 for a few years. Full boltons and a freektune. Loved the car torque monster and has to be one of the best sounding 4cyl out there. But after 125k miles everything started to break. First pmm and tmm wore out, then leak detection pump, then clutch. All wera items which i was fine with replacing, then 1k later 5th gear went... so i traded it in on a 17' FOST. Have all the boltons in my garage, waiting for the weather to clear up.

Out of time, actually. Starter won't start it 85% of the time because the CKPS is reading wrong. Jumping it forces it to start.

Runs fine though, just holds the exhaust valves open a millionth second longer.

Woops looks like I forgot to put on my seatbelt fucking before I even start the engine again, for the 15,000th time. Seriously who the fuck puts the seatbelt on BEFORE EVEN STARTING THE ENGINE?!

I just do it so the sound quality will go up, if I don't everything I do will affect it
like hitting the breaks will make a gigafuck ton of static, when the clutch plate opens, same thing, but if I put it in neutral and don't move the steering wheel it will get loud and clear
there's some other stuff too like the head lights will make the sound quality drop, no doubt it's from my shity bluetooth tape thing, but stalling it helps it allot for some reason
