    Compared to the two A340 trans I have laying around, theres quite a bit more play with the yoke inserted. Theres also tons of metal in the fluid. I'm ready to call time of death.

    I'm surprised none of these trans have a roller bearing for that application from the factory... There could have been some imperfections on the yoke that I hadn't noticed. I also do jizz a good amount of gear lube on the yoke before installing it usually. Could a poorly balanced driveshaft have influenced this failure? Though it might just be a combination of age and abuse -- there has to be over 200k miles on this box at this point. Aside from whatever I do for a trans, I'll get a new yoke and u-joints and have the balance checked at a different shop

    Yeah pretty sure I killed my slip yoke bushing. You can see here the chunks smeared out the end of it: Probably the only bearing in the trans that I never replaced lol

    My shaft was also originally an XM that I had lengthened 2 inches by a local place. It felt fine until yesterday when I went fast. Vibration came out of nowhere and didn't go away when I slowed down so this leaves me to believe it's the trans. Shits bad enough that it vibrates the steering wheel.

    Close to 100%. Mainly ES300/Camry or late 90s Accord or Acura TL. Or if they notice the right hand drive they jump right to sKyLiNe. While driving, either the car is so unassuming or people are so tuned out now that they barely notice I'm on the wrong side of the car. This day probably came yesterday. Took the car somewhere north of 180kph (digidash max) and the driveline turned into a Dualshock 2. Here's some sub-500 mile MT90 and some slip yoke bushing material deposited onto my driveshaft:

    Actually it was Muammar Gaddafi's pistol I was thinking of that had the engraving

    Definitely looks like something you'd see on Saddam Hussein's AK47

    Do you remember Gran Turismo 2? I Remember Gran Turismo 2. Had to raise the front suspension a bit. I was getting the classic upper control arms-hitting-unibody. Currently have a mismatch of old crap on it until I break down and buy new suspension and stuffer springs. For now, on the front I have Tein Type Flex dampers, HKS strut tops and the BC 12k springs from my X8. Rears are Tein with HKS 7k.

    Thats good tho, nothing crazy like the motor boats in the street. Last one that made it up here a couple weeks back I was able to save my fridge and run one of the ACs with the generator. By the time the storm makes it up here its pussy shit compared to the gulf coast, but people still lose their minds when a tornado actually touches down. I had always thought the thermal properties of stone/masonry would be bad for winter, but the materials based on region does make more sense. Up here its nothing but trees so it's all wood houses, boring colonial style shit, faux log cabins etc. They say part of the "rustic charm" of New England is the endless trees lining the sides of, and often times overhanging, the roads. But that also means the fucking power lines, so if a hurricane makes its way up here like it did a couple weeks ago you're losing power

    Hell yeah dude, I'd seen the wastegate on top of the stock manifold done before, but never with the original heat shield still in tact. But then I saw it done on a couple S-chassis with low-effort hood dumps and thought I could do it better. I made it so the wastegate and recirc pipe can still be removed straight out the top without even touching the heat shield, and the rest easily drops down underneath.

    God I love brick/stone houses. Wish there were more up here but probably not great for winters. I was in Houston last year and went to the bayou area where my gramps lived, there were a ton of houses being jacked up 5 feet on concrete pylons as a result of Harvey. You surviving down there?

    It will be once I set some money aside for somehow getting a new windshield to my door in one piece. Other than that and the typical front bumper chipping, it's pretty straight. Even for being an Okinawa car, the only rust on it is what you see on the fasteners in the rear subframe. Polar opposite of my Cressida

    No shit those are XT7s, I obviously meant the fucking gramlights that were on the car before. Normally that bronze would've went great with either of the two tone colors. But I get it's hard to match painted wheels to the combination of them The car of the people. Beige 1998 Corolla with 250k miles, first gen Mazda3 with tirerack.com winter tire and wheel package in the middle of the summer, Mitsubishi Montero with exactly one side step and two fender flares missing, all mud flaps still attached, etc
