Re: T&T OFFICIAL New Vehicle Prices & Discussion Thread

Thanks for the responses. I was wondering about total cost of ownership of some vehicles as some might think that are saving by purchasing a relatively cheaper vehicle up front, but when parts need replacing (out of warranty) you can end up with very similar costs overall. Colleague had a Hyundai th...

Re: T&T OFFICIAL New Vehicle Prices & Discussion Thread

Could also be due to having to stock parts for the new mill.

So I have a question.
For the people that have purchased their vehicle new, how many keep it pass 100000kms?
And for those that kept it that long, what needed to be fixed/replaced besides oil and filters before the 100k kms mark

Re: PC Tech/Gaming Info Thread

There is such an abundance of power in both CPU and GPU for relatively cheap that I don't really see the need for overclocking as much as I once did. As a hobby... Go nuts; experimental BIOS, core unlocking, overclocking on chipsets that weren't supposed to, etc. However I do not do these things on ...

Re: Toyota AE 111 issues

If you tumbling long enough you can usually smell the fuel coming out the exhaust. Have you checked spark plugs. That will also let you know if fuel is going to the cylinders. I advise taking them out, clean/dry them if they are wet with fuel/oil. Test to see if you are getting spark. Reinsert 3 int...

Not exactly maximum points... One extra point goes towards Leclerc for having the fastest lap in the race and finishing in the top 10. No doubt this was his race to win but this is also Motorsport.

Re: PC Tech/Gaming Info Thread

Is there any benefit to overclocking anymore. The processors themselves seem to do a pretty good job of it and you still keep the power saving features which you lose when you manually turn the dial up yourself.

How is air getting to the radiator to cool this thing.
The engine also appears tilted(clocked) way forward from the original angle that k series engines normally come from the factory. Does this affect lubrication any.

All reputable brands are good. It's the ones that I've never heard about before I'm a bit cautious about. Thick (high viscosity oil) vs Thin (low viscosity oil) is tough to differentiate as you meet in the middle (because of variations of opinion) but easier to identify at the extremes. 10w30 might ...
