^ hassle talaga lalo yung mga 18 wheels, fully laden all. minsan kasi they travel in groups din e we also travel in a convoy (mostly  :wink:) kaya ang hirap icoordinate yung mga kotse while we're at it, so last saturday we just gunned it para maiwanan lahat ng truck, bahala na sino maiwan  :lol:

yan talaga ang hassle, mga 18 wheelers. pag medyo mabilis ang patakbo nila, maghihintay ka pa ng bwelo. buti nga hindi nauso 'yung mga roadtrain (3 to 5 trailers) dito eh.  :-o

dibali naman kung iiwanan mo 'yung convoy, kung parehas lang naman kayo ng destination, eh pwede nang iwan. makakahabol at makakahabol naman, pero depende din sa nagmamaneho.  :lol:

@ rockophoria

not sure about double clutch but i got to try out an evo V with racing clutch - para kang sumisipa ng kaban ng bigas everytime, and you can't smoothly ride the clutch - there will always be lurching movements. the owner doesn't daily drive it, he tried, he gave up after two days.

yep alam ko yung racing clutch, what I mean is automatic transmission pero "H" pa rin yung kambyada.. pero wala ng clutch pedal.. mejo curious na kasi ako sa feel ng mga bagong automatic transmission variants ngayon like yung paddle-shifters nga tsaka dual clutch..

sa dual clutch daw eh nakahiwalay yung "odd" gears sa "even" gears kaya wala ng clutch pedal kasi hindi na bibitaw sa drivetrain.. dere deretso na kaya shift kalang ng shift.

1-3-5
2-4-6

kumbaga from neutral pag nagshift ka sa 1st gear eh nakahanda na yung 2nd gear sa drivetrain then pag shift sa 2nd yung 3rd naman so on and so forth..

meron na ba sa inyo nakasubok nun?  :-D

^ Ayos yung paddle shift concept na sinasabi ni sir rock nuh. Semi-automatic. Pero pwede kaya na hindi sequential ang pag-shift dito (engine brake)? Yun ang unang pumasok sa isip ko.

ang sabi sakin nung mga naka top variant na Honda Civic tsaka City hindi daw ganun kabilis ang response nung paddle shifters nila, kumbaga may delay pa rin daw.. unlike sa mga high-end na supercars yung response ng shifters nila eh agad agad.

altho kung titingnan mo mas ok sakin yung twin-clutch na stick-shift "H" pa rin ang [gooey brown stuff] atleast ramdam mo pa rin yung traditional manual transmission without the clutch pedal.

Tiningnan ko yung paddle shifters sa google images. Yun pala yung dalawang parang lever na nakakabit sa tabi ng manibela.

Traditional stick shift talaga ang maganda, 'yun ang nakasanayan eh. Hehe. It will be better pag may twin clutch system. Pero perfect na siguro sinamahan pa ng finger touch feature pa.  :-D

Hindi siguro bagay talaga yung paddle shifters sa malilit na makina kaya matagal ang response?  :?

yep.. hindi na kasi natin mapipigilan na na papunta na sa "smart system" ang automotive industry at soon enough mawawala na ang manual system at lahat ng stick-shift will be either collectibles nalang or sa museum at hindi na road worthy.

so for me kahit na super cool ang paddle shifters I will still love the Twin-Clutch system solely because of the stick shifting system nya.. kumbaga nawala lang talaga yung clutch pedal.

Hello PhilMusic Car Club fellows! Just wanted to seek help and advice as I'm looking to replace the Rims or Mags of my car.

Car is a NISSAN X-Trail 250X 2007.

Questions are:

1. How much for a decent set of rims? 5PCs preferred.
     a. Brandnew
     b. Secondhand

2. Would it be better to get a secondhand set?

3. The Car is currently equipped with 15's. would it be better to increase the size or would that change the ride feel?



Thank you so much guys!
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

1. Brandnew - could be around 30 - 40k ang 5pieces. depende pa kung branded could be higher than 100k
    Secondhand - tyagaan din baka meron ka makuhang around 20k na maayos.

2. It's better kung kilala mo yung nagbebenta, or kung marunong ka tumingin dapat vigilant ka kung walang cracks at bengkong, if you have the moolah, go brandnew, atlis may warranty.

3. Kung papogi ang habol, pogi yan sa 17's or higher na mags yun lang you need low profile tires kung san magiging matagtag na  ang riding comfort. Kung personal use, and you can take the "tagtag" go with the looks, pero kung may mga kids ka, misis mo, pampamilyang sasakyan. Eh sa comfort tayo. :)

Maraming salamat po sir Spadettie! Just a couple of followup questions,

anong brands po yung nasa range ng 30-40k? reliable naman po pa yung brands? :D

nako, tama nga, mukhang stick to 15s muna at gustong gusto ko yung feel ng sasakyan eh :D

Guys pa suggest naman, I'm looking for 2nd hand car ( my first ) I'm 23 yrs old freelancer, so gagamitin ko siya most of the time for meetings around the metro and every weekend sa Kawit, Cavite. Ano ba ma-suggest niyo?

My budget right now is 150k I can stretch up to 200k pero kasi I left 50k for possible repairs sa bibilin kong sasakyan.

You may suggest a good second hand car dealer as well financing company na tatanggap ng financing with low interest siyempre at yung insurance na kasama.

Currently I'm eyeing for a Lancer, Vios, Sentra, yung 1998+ model.

BTW di pa kao marunong mag-drive  :eek: mag-aaral pa lang once maka-purchase so siguro dapat maconsider din yung pagka-newbie ko.

mitsu or toyota na brad.. maraming pyesa nyan kung saan saan para madali ang maintenance.. and yep I suggest wag mo isagad ang budget mo.. dapat may extra ka for repairs or upgrades.. usually kasi pag 2nd hand na oto ang binili pakakuha mo eh drain/palit lahat ng fluids and filters para sure ka na sayo nagsimula yung countdown ng mileage before ka mag maintenance ulit.

atleast may panggastos ka pa.. and syempre depede pa pag pudpud na ang gulong eh mas maganda may extra ka pa to buy a new set.. tapos astig na rims na rin to go with it..

goodluck!  :)

diba sir pwede na i-swap 'yung current rim or mags ng sasakyan sa mga tire shop para maka-menos gastos sa bibilhing bagong rims? ganoon kasi ginawa ni papa ko sa corolla namin. sumasadsad kasi 'yung gulong sa body pag dumadaan sa lubak. kaya pina-swap na lang sa stock, tapos bumili na lang ng new set of wheels. di ko alam kung magkano pero medyo malaki din 'yung na-menos sa gastos.

sa dagupan 'yun sir. medyo malapit sa CSI Mall. nag out-of-town kami noon at the same time, naghanap na rin kami bagong set ng gulong. hindi kasi appropriate 'yung rim nung sasakyan noon, lalo na pag maraming load, kaya nagpa-palit kami ng stock na rim. sana every tire shops may ganoon bargain. malaking bagay din kasi 'yun.

way back I looked into "repo-vehicles" offered by Banks.. try to check P.S Bank if they have recent repo vehicles for sale.. pero mind you dude most of the repo cars are really beaten up or kinarne na internally since alam mo naman ang mga may ari nun kung makakaganti sa bank dahil kukunin na yung kotse nila dahil di makabayad eh tatanggalin yung stereo, sisrain yung speakers.. bubutasin yung mga upholstery or kukunin yung spare tyres and others stuffs..

so make sure to check thoroughly with a trusted mechanic yung oto pag titingin ka sa repo.

Well yun nga din sabi ng Tito ko kaya I stay away from the Bank though I check there listing (BDO) may mga tempting na cars.

I have a Trusted Mechanic that I need to pay lang if ever maghahanap my problem is the right model for me and places to look for.

@ME30maniac - halos lahat ng nagbebenta ng mags/rims eh tumatanggap ng trade in, yun nga lang don't expect na hindi nila babaratin yung presyo ng itetrade in mo. sa blumentrit ako huling bumili ng mags e, tinrade in ko yung dati ko.

@ralph - try mo muna canvas sa blumentrit, west ave, or evangelista kung san ka malapit para atlis may idea ka sa mapipili mo at kung magkano presyo nila sa current mags mo incase itrade in.

@crazyvoice - malaki na yang budget mong 150k para sa decent na 2nd hand na tsikot, pwedeng magtaong ka muna sa mga tropa mong mahilig sa auto baka may suggestion sila na makukunan, dapat yung tropa mo talga para medyo kampante ka.
