Clutch starting this car

Clutch starting this car since I got it in January. Any car that I owned over the past 20 years that had a manual transmission I also clutch started. Mainly the 85 HF and the 90 teg.

yup i saw my mechanical

yup i saw my mechanical teacher today. Boy he still looks the same and still loving to teach even after 20 years later. I told him about bump starting and he said, "nope can't harm the car." I even asked about dumping raw fuel into the catatlic converter and he said, "Nah don't worry about it. What you doing will not kill the car."

COAST OFF ~~~~~~~~~~~ art of bump starting.

hmm! i just discovered that my tires were/are actually classified as LRR after doing a quick web search.

i've seen them on a number of EV conversions. that's what prompted me to do the search.

that would explain their high sidewall max pressure and their general lack of traction (i've understeered them in the wet in a moderately quick turn, and they're absolutely utterly useless in snow).

mine pumps up to 51 psi, and its been rumored that my tires were LRR, but finding out the potenzas SP20 were not after all. If they were I'd be pretty dissapointed! As for snow its all right, but not the greatest I guess, I go much slower anyway when its snowing.

snow tires

Low traction in snow is why I have a full set of snow tires, I know they are going to use more gas, but the fuel savings in needing the driveway plowed less, and the energy saved in not crashing the car in to something on a slipery road, and the time saved not getting stuck, I think it's worth it.
