ya same here, what do you think of RHD though, driving on the right hand side of a car seems challenging, what do you think?

Re: NOS in automatic cars

lol, well rhd is normal. I'm originally Australian adn all skylines there are RHD. but now I'm living in the Emirates and my car is LHD but i have to say getting used to it is easier than one would think. Only hard part was getting used to having the blinkers and wipers on the other side ;p I kept hitting the wipers instead of the blinkers when i first switched to LHD. but its pretty easy once yuo get the hang of it.

Re: NOS in automatic cars

actually....I still stand correct..its alot more stress on the tranny..and as for your friend in the Mirage(it is called a Mirage/Lancer)..what does the Tranny have to dowith anything..you didnt support any Important or base Information to support your arguement on how that 30 shot killed a Manual Tranny..yeah,the Kit is a good deal..and low on the wallet,agreed.But you cannot rely on that for long,specialy with a Nitrous system....so its up to you... canada...you can pick the shifter kit and get the Nittrous upgrade..and just see what happens ..that is all..and as for Zwrangler No such hostility was directed at yah, you can put your hands down now

Re: NOS in automatic cars

Nos in a manual or auto is bad for your car in the long run. it makes no difference whether its a manual or auto, either way you're still stressing the engine and reducing its life span in the long run. I would personally never use Nos unless I was running a serious car with a serious engine that could handle the Nos and the stress it puts on the engine. Oh and about the mirage, You doubted they could blow an engine on a 30hp shot of nitrous, you didn't say that you doubted its coz it was a manual or not. coincidentally it was a manual ;p

Talking Re: NOS in automatic cars

I dont really understand why so many people are so opposed to driving manual. You cant use being 17 as an excuse because I'm 17 and I love driving manual. I hate Automatic. I think its boring and not as fun. Thats just my opinion I guess. I'll always prefer it to automatic. I guess what I dont like about automatic is when you go up a hill and hit the gas to accelerate, it never fails, every single automatic i have ever driven SLAMS into the lower gear to go uphill. It's never been that rough with my car. I'm biased because i had to learn manual. but anyways, i prefer it and dont see why someone would even bother putting nitrous in an automatic either. but whatever i guess. haha. theres my rant..
