Newbie (1/14)



  1. What I've gathered from Camaro6.com is that the Camaro will follow a 4-6-8 cylinder hierarchy instead of a 6-4-8 one like the Mustang, and that there shouldn't be many restricted options based on engine choice. I've seen that MRC will be an option only for the SS but no other restrictions to date. Also saw a quote from Oppenheiser stating that the 4 cylinder car will run 0-60 in "well under 6 seconds."
  2. New look is much nicer than the one it replaces, though I still see that floating-header thing (Safari 8.0.5, OS X 10.10.3) that has a tendency to cover up posts and it doesn't disappear like it used to with the previous skin.
  3. I've been lurking on Camaro6 and have seen some information pointing to a reveal this year but nothing confirming NY.
  4. Emptied the cache but the "sticky header" still shows up when reading unread posts. If I then refresh the page the sticky header appears then immediately goes away.
  5. With the new skin I've noticed that when using the "go to first unread post" feature the page loads and scrolls to the correct post but the header/banner also loads and covers that post. If I scroll the page the header/banner 'pop-up' goes away (it's still at the top of the page). Not sure if this is an issue with the new skin itself, but it's not something that happens with the old skin. I'm using a Mac running OSX and Safari.
  6. A couple people on Camaro5/6 are pointing out that the edges of the windshield, and maybe the side windows, are taped to make their surface areas appear smaller. Those people are also saying that the front end of the new car is probably covered by a current generation nose and that the rear is extended with tacked on stuff, which is why the front looks unchanged and the car looks big in general.
  7. I was under the impression that the WRX and/or STI had a "normal" mode in which the CVT operated continuously and a sport mode in which the CVT acted like an 8-speed. Am I incorrect?
  8. Both versions have bad front-ends so aside from the generic/copycat front-end of the Chinese version I think the Chinese version wins. It gets new details along the side, and Impala-like rear-quarters and rear-end that look much better than the leftover bits we get. Why couldn't they just make ours a mini-Impala?
  9. I know this is only anectodal evidence but I see quite a few people on Camaro5.com saying how well their current generation Camaro (mainly the V6) does in the snow with winter tires. I don't think it's as bad as you all make it out to be.
  10. I'm a bit disappointed only because I was hoping for a departure from retro, I was even hoping the Mustang would be revolutionary for that same reason. Regardless, I'm definitely excited to see how the car will evolve!
  11. What I have: Harbor Freight 1/2" drive corded electric impact wrench (probably the same one Drew has), worked great to remove front axle nuts on my 9-2x Black & Decker corded drill What I want: a corded electric ratcheting wrench (essentially an electric version of the 90-degree pneumatic wrenches that are common) in 3/8" or 1/4" drive, which turns out are pretty hard to find, so I'll probably look for a cordless version
  12. A bit over a year ago Ford dealers got a bad batch of fuel pumps for the 2001 (and related) Mustang GT that we had. Two of those pumps, one purchased in CA and the other a warranty replacement from NM, made it into the car and failed within weeks. Moral of the story... don't rule out the possibility of a bad fuel pump.
  13. Scroll down to the end of this post to see dyno results for a C7 with the new LT1, the torque curve looks pretty good to me.
  14. Going on 14 years for the Camaro! Also: 2010 Subaru Forester, 4 years on 12/31/13 2005 Saab 9-2x Aero, 1 year on 10/27/13
