Just got my new pin hauler. Only issue is that it can't actually haul pins.
Quoted from robertmee:
Not really.....that Honda is one of the Jap utility vehicles....You can find them all over ebay/CL, but in most states they are not registerable. Some states allow for limited use, like 35mph and under. Most states, not at all. I looked at them a few months ago, but in my county/state it was a near impossibility to register so I gave up.
I mean as far as that general look, like the pic I attached.
Quoted from littlecammi:
but even I would take the latest 10-speed auto over a 6-speed manual if I were ordering a new Camaro ZL1. Ten speeds should always keep the engine in its powerband and pre-loading the next gear should make for quick shifts in these modern automatics.
I drive a 2018 ZL1 with the 10 speed auto, that transmission is brilliant not only for shifting fast always at the perfect time and keeping the engine near peak power, but it even auto downshifts when it senses you entering a turn. It will even sense (in Sport and Track modes) when you are driving aggressively and automatically switch to a shifting mode that keeps it in high rpm. If you settle down your driving the auto with automatically switch back to normally lower rpm gear selections. Even pro drivers pick it over the manual, and I think even Hennessy said the same.
Thing is, auto's have been faster than manuals for a very long time now. I used to drive a 1997 Camaro LT1 with an auto, paired with a 3200 stall torque converter, 3:73 gears and a reprogrammed auto set to shift faster. I would regularly beat manual cars that had more power than me because the converter helped keep it in the power band even though it didn't have many gears, along with the fast and perfect shifts. That was over two decades ago! Although nowadays you don't have to mod anything and the auto will still be faster.
