Turning point..

Hi peeps! Just got back from a short night out..wahaha..well..it was so sudden actually that my future-house-mate Mr Joel came to pay me a visit..what was the reason for a sudden visit? he had just bought a car..what model of car?It's a BMW5..darn it!the car is really well designed..wahaha...not quite right huh..he bought a Satria a.k.a Gti car..not a new one but a second hand..it doesn't matter though..so he just got his car 2 days ago.he was so excited (he should be after all the sacrifices he had made..) so he came to "his" house inviting me for a drink and a ride....we went to town (Church Street pub)..then chatted and drank couple of beers...it was timely as I was so free...on the way home..he gave me the key, asking my favour or advise about his car...I'm no expert or what so ever but I do know couple of stuffs (theory) for maintaining a good car..modifying car..tuning a car....so I guess, it does not hurt to share with him what should he do for a couple of days later or in future time..while checking its exterior, I realised that the car has a new paint on it (red)...exterior looks very nice..catchy huh!...well, if you talking about Satria..then the nearest brother is Satria Gti right..so it has almost the same look with all the skirting and tires...spoiler at the back..and a new paint!

I went in..ignited the engine and listened to its sound..not bad but there seems to be a slight issue when suddenly I heard the miss-fired or what so ever the expert would call it...sound nice but it does have a little "hiccup"...my first suspect in mind was its transition between the engine (combustion) and exhaust..could it be the muffler? I wouldn't know for sure but it does have something to look into...locked at 1st gear, pressed on the gas and lit the clutch slowly..found it! (clutch balance level) and it began to move..2nd then 3rd gear and so on...it runs well..interesting sound as it has a big blow-pipe behind..haha..big sporty exhaust, to be exact! rim is 14" with a 3" width tires..roughly, it could have a spec of 215/60R14 or 215/60/14 tires fitted on it..it was a random observation..need to look onto the tire for further details...As expected, it runs well but it does have a problem with its height..too low!!! I think the gap from the road surface to the car body is less than 5" and the tires' surface to the archers is less than 2"...its good that it doesn't feel so bouncy, I guess the suspension is working perfectly but it needs a little extra height..even a small bump, we can hear the squeaking sound of the tires touching the body..carefully, I drove the car until we reach the Jelutong Express way..its a 3 lanes express way with a speed limit of 80Kph (I went up to 90kph..over 10kph of road limit is considered as speeding! Tips!)...it runs smooth and stable so far but it lost its alignment..not to worry though because it's not that terrible..a little alignment will do....with 1.3 cc engine..it does run very well with a good gears' transition and power boost...it is a relieve for him....I'm always very attracted to any tuned engine and its power but it was not meant to be..the car does not have a tachometer for its RPM....so I can't really see how well the transition of each gears does or how smooth the rotatation is...no worries as it's not that important at this moment juga..as long as the car runs well and safe..that will do...he's moving with us next week..so we have 3 jejaka kegilaan wanita borneo di rumah..wahaha..betul ka tu Mr Jew..anda setuju? He actually asked me for another favour by helping him to send the car for a service but I said..better you go and see for yourself then learn...

For the record..Mr Joel is from Ranau...the house is now full of 3 jejaka Ranau..wahaha...it is his last day tomorrow (26th Sept) at his current company then a week break before he starts at a new company.....which he is required to have a car as part of his new job requirement...after this, you guys might read a lot more about these 3 jejaka kegilaan borneo..Wahaha..Cheers! All damn good drinker especially Mr Joel as he has a big and cute tummy that fits for a twin..

Wel^Beiolman said...

KadusMama..wahahaha..sia tahu theory sja ba..bukan pakar (dulu2 masa selalu d kg byk tanya pekerja untie sia d workshop and baca buku pasal kereta..tinguk tv sal kereta..helps a lot)..tuning? begegar kalu stop?..ahahaa..as far as I'm aware of..its due to the "timing" mama....at least u know what may seems to be the cause/reason and u need to consult ur mechanic..ensure u have u own mechanic not changing place/workshop..stay with one workshop only for anything that has to do with your car...earlier of course la coz we need to survey which of them are good and honest in providing services as well as purchasing stuff...consult ur mechanic on this..I would say they might check ur timing belt/chain...just an opinion..sia bukan mechanic..

3 jejaka pingitan...ahaha..setahu sia..mcm teda la..entah la kalu ada yg berahsia...mcm si......hehe..
