Overdrive = a gearratio that is less than 1 to 1. So, 0.738:1 is overdrive. That happens to be your fifth gear. Therefore, you have an overdriven transmission.

Fourth gear is 0.972:1, making it overdriven as well. Some cars have a 1:1 fourth gear, making it a direct drive.

For once, a salesperson knew what they were yammering on about.

1.lets see, i was around a few guys at work and this truck driver has been talkin bout cars..this is next..
driver: man i drove one of them talons years ago. it was one of them twin turbo ones, and i thought this thing had to be a 6 cylinder because of how fast it was..but nope jus a lil 4 banger twin turbo.
me: huh..really..

..i never corrected him jus chuckled and walked away.

2. been asked a lot recently if my car was twin turboed. then their response is " really man coulda swore these were dual turboed" haha...its gettin old though.

not funny but when i last was home i did some work to my car and my old car(98 eclipse, stock not riced out ) and while lookin at my engine bay my dad pointed to my IC and said
" thats the intercooler for the turbo, right?"
i was...haha and replied with a yes, i think hes actually been listening to me during my car rambles

So I was in this skreet race in a school zone in my STi and I jumped this bridge and flew over some guy in front of me because I hit both nawwwwwz buttons right before the jump and I landed and done a MAD TYTE drift and stoped while the other guy hit a billboard and totaled his car...lawlz

Anyways Ludacris came out of nowhere and handed me a big stack of money I won so I showed him some "mutual respect" and gave him some of my winnings...I then went to holla at some fine girl and she went to take off and I was like "where ya goin" and she said "its time to get outa here" and then all i heard was police sirens and everyone took off...I jumped back in my STi and took off...I was out running the cops until one shot this electric spear into my door and my car quit..they ran up to my door with guns drawn and arrested me...later they wanted me to drive undercover for them and gave me this nerd for a partner so I ask what was a better engine for my STi..a gallo 12 or a gallo 24....he replies "24"..I was like "I didnt know pizza companys made motors"

TRUE STORY BRO'S...not a rip off of a movie

This is probably one of the few that's not turbo related

Have had a lot people give me the "WTF is that" look when I'm out cruisin' in
my BRAT.

I've gotten the classic, "Dude, is that an El Camino?"

Now that I've got the canopy on it, nobody knows what it is

Yes this thread is old, but hilarious. I've spent hours at work reading many of these and finally I have some to add.

So i was chatting with my gf about the drive home from work the other day, goes something like this.

Her: yeah it took me forever to get home on wednesday cuz of the car crash on 28.
Me: that sucks, i got home the earlier than i ever did on wednesdays drive home from work. some wrx was on my a$$ so i decided to drive fast. We were doing 130 mph and before I knew it i was home.
Her: SHUT UP! your car doesn't do 130mph!!! its a 4 cylinder!
Me: hahahahaha
Her: there is no way..my car shuts off at 110mph
Me: hahahaha
-----------------------------------------

Grandma: Have fun with your new toy!
Me: thanks!
-----------------------------------------

Yesterday i got laughed at by a guy driving a beat up acura with a fart can when i stalled my car on a hill, god i hate that hill assist program. If i forget about it and proceed to drive, it doesn't seem to disengage fast enough sometimes, then i'll stall.

Also, concerning the safety of your lovely girlfriend. That should be investigated in case Tyrese pulls up in a purple eclipse and eggs her on for a street race.
