@sony1492 The significantly stiffer ride has exacerbated the need for a limited slip diff. If that was an easy mod I'd be doing it right now lol hopefully snow tires and not being super low will work out okay
Yes. This is why midness is goodness. Just dipping my MR2 into a few right-angled corners and roundabouts on the way to the shops is enough. The nimbleness of the light front end is addictive and fun.
Some would say a small 2-seater is an awful car for around town. But it makes it so much fun - how can you do it in a car that isn't fun?
@rallydarkstrike Yeah, when I first saw it I was gobsmacked—it's a very clean and sleek design that I think would have looked good well into the '80s with a few facelifts, especially compared to the dowdy 20/30 and 25 that we got instead. The shape is so unique that I have no doubt it'd be a classic like the CX today if it had been made. Instead we got this:
Sounds good! I gave it a read, but it's thick and my ability to focus is completely gone from being at home all day. It's ironic because I feel like Kinja not being a forum was probably what made it seem so accessible to me back in the day, and now I have to learn my way around a forum after all! I kid, you guys have done a great job considering it's been completely bug-free for me so far! Thanks for all the effort, vive la oppo!
@pip-bip Something about this reminds me of those "new" models Moskvitch came out with in the 90s when they were circling the drain, which were all just either shortened or stretched versions of the Aleko with different grilles tacked on the front.
I'd suggest looking it up on YouTube. It's a very entertaining quiz/discussion show; the title is shorthand for Quite Interesting. For the first several years the host was Stephen Fry, with Sandy Toksvig taking over a few years ago. They ask a number of questions, and one of the main goals is to avoid saying the most obvious/cliched answer. It's simultaneously entertaining and educational.
