today, i was picking up my brother... it was a good day... not too hot, not too cold... had a little race with a civic... the driver was some hot asian chick... so, i pick up my brother and i'm driving down 88th avenue... everything was fine... then the car just lost all power. for no fucking reason, it just died. so, i pulled to the side of the road, checked under the hood, everything looked fine... so, i go to canadian tire... i'm told it's possibly the althernator, which would cost about 500 bucks to replace... they said they'd call a tow truck to tow it there... told me to call them at 3, so i did. They said they haven't recieved it... told me to call the fucking tow truck to bring it, so i did... another 75 bucks. so i'm without a fucking vehicle until tomorrow, i gotta work at 7, so i gotta get picked up, which is just fucking annoying, cause i like doing my own driving... i just hope my car's at canadian tire tomorrow or i'll be fucking pissed off.

people suck.

your alternator dying should not make the car immediately lose power. it's probably something simple like the fusible link or a ground wire came loose. typically with an alternator failure you'll have an indicator for a long time before it actually stops, because its charging capacity will fail incrementally. or if it breaks suddenly, you get an indicator and the car will still run until the battery dies.

did your car have an idiot light on?

My car died, too. But it wasn't in the middle of the street or anything unfortunate like that. I just pulled it into a parking space, went into the store, came out, tried to start it...nothing happend... The battery was just dead. Deader than dead. I never changed the battery before and I've had this car for about 5 years. Ha... It must've slipped my mind. But my car is ok now. Yay! :thumbsup: I heart my Civic. :thumbsup:

Next thing you know, you're going to turn the ignition and CLANK! There goes the transmission, engine block, front and back bumper, battery, side mirrors, hub caps, the am/fm button on the radio, the body in your trunk, and your glove box... not to mention that a spring your passenger seat has been removed and destroyed on by several of your friends on charges of aggravated rape and battery.

what the fuck are you talking about?

a stock delorean has a 2.8L v6 engine. that's roughly 170 cubic inches. it's

a stock delorean produces 130 horsepower AT THE CRANK. my toyota prius four-door hybrid-drivetrain sedan makes 144 hp. remember, you lose 10% of your horsepower just turning the drivetrain. you think my prius goes faster than 102? nope. and it struggles to get there.

a stock delorean produces 153 lbft of torque, also at the crank. that's right on par with a 4 cylinder honda accord.

anything other than a go-cart is not going to reach 160mph with engine output like that.

time for one of these: :bs:

unless, of course, the car is not stock. has it been weight reduced? has it been supercharged? does he have nitrous? etc..

i'm not saying a delorean is condemned to be slow, but i am saying they were slow out of the box. anyone can fix up a car to go fast. :p

check out a turbo supra or 3000gt vr-4 some time. lower, wider, heavier, faster, more comfortable, more creature comforts, and still getting 30mpg out of a 3L 6cyl engine.

my mustang gets 6-8 mpg, but it will reach that 160mph mark you're talking about from zero in 13 seconds flat.

then it's not stock, is it? when talking about cars, we say something is "stock" if it is unchanged from how it was produced. now, we can specify: "that engine's not stock," or we can generalize: "the car is bone stock." i assume what you meant to say was "the engine's not stock but the rest of the car is."

:p i take back my aggression, but i bet you see where i was coming from. i've lost races to people who say "oh my car is stock" when actually there's a 225 shot of NOS in it. i've also lost shows to people who register HIGHLY MODIFIED cars into "stock" categories. man, nothing gets my goat more than that.

i love those cars though. check this one out. that's the same block i have in my 12 second mustang. i dunno if my car is more hyped up, though; i get 408hp / 384 tq at the wheels.
