TOPIC: Wont do rings
#65902
Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 3
I hav recently bought my first MR2. Which is actually my first RWD car. So of course I was out doing donuts the other night. After about 30 rings it jus wouldnt go around any more. At first I thought it was the clutch but its pullung fine in every gear, Its driving fine and all the rest so I just dont know what it could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to find out what it is before I break down on the side of the road.

This is probably the best worst first post I've ever seen on here.
"Is actually my first RWD car. So of course I was out doing donuts the other night"
This part mainly grinds my gears (pun intended). That's like saying, I got myself my first gun so of course I went on a shooting spree.
If you want your car to remain reliable then you probably shouldn't abuse it i.e. 30 rings of death.
Also you haven't given any details of which model year or revision or mr2 you have.

Lol sorry but ok first the engine is in the back , so think for a second doing donuts will throw all the oil to one side of the oil pan , your oil feed is in the middle of the pan , you could get a race oil pan which has baffles like little square compartment's to stop gravity throwing the oil to one side and thus starving the engine of oil which will end up in your engine going god help me and im not a person that likes being negative towards a person , but I dont think you should own a mr2 you'LL end up hurting yourself or god forbid you'll end up in causing a accident with that stupit shit theres plenty of track days for a bit of fun if you wish or tina karting have drift days for 100 euro .

Perhaps the car is broke now, if not it will be soon. It may be accompanied with a knocking sound from the bottom end. Which to let you know incase you need to ask at a later date is the bottom end shell bearings wearing out due to lack of oil and good sense.

The MR2 does not take fondly to rings / donuts, however if its your intention to blow the engine, this is one of the fastest ways to do it, good luck with it.

Re: Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 3
Lol at all you guys. I said it was my first RWD car, not my first car... assuming I no nothing whatsoever about cars is a pretty heafty leap from all you guys. I just asked a simple question which would require a simple answer, ie: dont know; talk to _______ he knows!!!; Or a series of questions from an experienced member to extract the precise information to give an educated quess/answer/solution!!! Lol lads!!! jus so u guys are clear, the car is running t3, wassners, dry sump set up, smic, kaas dif and a blitz ecu. What a bunch of bloody grandas!!! Wet ones the lot of ye!!!! I was actually intended on bringing up a decent topic here on drifting an mr2 which is rare... which would normally be an enthusiasts holy grail... do it, just because its never done!!! So much for enthusiasts. Its more like the blue rinse brigade, mr2 style!!! What a waist of time, il go and ask some site thats actually interested in helping a fellow petrol head on an issue with an unfamiliar car model!!! Anyway, good luck with the site! :-/

Re: Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 327
Well done Mee, delighted with your list of mods and all that lark. With your level of knowledge I reckon you should know what's wrong with your own car not doing rings for you.

Grandads, perhaps there are some here, but most of the guys are young enough not to have been caught out yet. Drifting MR2's is rare, very rare as they are difficult to drift competitively when the FR setup is better suited to this type of thing. Are you intending drifting the MR2, best of luck with it, but its a step up from doing rings.

But I think the issue with you first post is most people consider the MR2 something to keep and not destroy with rough treatment. With the dry sump you may have protected the bottom ends but the rest of the car will be taking a fair hammering.

Being a petrolheads and enthusiasts site we are interested in all MR2's be it road use, track, racing, drifting and modifying them. If we were all the same the world would be a boring place, however your intro post came across all wrong. Let us know what your plans are for the MR2, any photos, is it a road or track car.

Thanks for wishing us good luck with the site, its been on the go a good while now a will probably continue for a while yet. Perhaps if you looked at the normal posts here you would get a better feel of how this site operates and that may give you an idea on how to tell us about your MR2 rather than a rush of "rings".

Just to let you know we have all types of MR2's here, 400bhp ones, completely standard ones, cosmetically modified ones, rare convertible Mrk II's (only 87 in the world), 2 TRD widebodies being put on the road and many trackcars.

If you haven't been on track before, your more than welcome to come out with me, I normally hold back for the "faster" cars so I can play with them in my slow little MR2

I agree with Slip. Mee your first post just makes you come across as someone who is out lashing the car out of it in the middle of the night waking up the neighbours. Maybe you are a competitive drifter on a race track, but that's a whole different story and sorry but that is not what you wrote.

There are a few MR2 drivers on this site that are in to racing and do it safely in the correct way.

I agree with Slips and Quandry, a proper introduction would have would let us know where you are coming from. Your symptoms for your problem are also very vague.

30 Donuts is hard on any rwd car.

Your probably better looking drift forums, they would have better experience with problems caused by drifting.

We are generally light hearted on this site, we will do our best to help genuine car enthusiast.

Best of luck with your future pursuits.

Re: Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 35
Ok well I agree for a first post it might not be the greatest, always good to give an introduction and say who you are! Its a bit like a stranger coming up and asking a random questions can seem a bit odd

On the "dont do donuts" its bad for the car your gonna kill it etc etc. While yes donuts ins't exactly the most amazing thing for the diff and a bit pointless overall I dislike how everyone on here has automatically jumped to the conclusion that its dreadful behavior and chastised the lad!Sure the abuse that a car gets at a track day is not much different e..g high revs, lots of stress on the chassis and components including the diff. Its all about how a car is maintained and not bouncing the damn thing off the limiter.

Best motoring often end up doing donuts in cars, as do race car drivers with multi million dollars cars its a bit of fun and can be done in good spirit. Its the lads that hop the car of the limiter constantly for 10minutes going round and not giving the car a break and or not maintaining it outside these times of madness that causes the issue.

So I have to say I am a bit disappointed in the knee jerk reaction to the user here, saying that it would have been good to have an introductory post first to get to know you lad

I would love to see that dry sump setup as that is a rare item on any 3SGTE.

Any chance you would post some photos of it here ?

lads i dont care what anyone says doing rings is stupid and pointless see how different the reactions are on other enthusiast forums i doubht he would get a warm welcome if he used the same intro anywhere else, 30 rings why what benefit is that, real drifting is on a track with a car propraly built from the ground up, not a few bolt on bits

Re: Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 35
I think that the problem was the way people went about telling him the issue with his post.... plus its people opinion on whether rings are the worst thing in the world for all intensive purposes the same mechanics govern rings as they do drifting e.g. wheel slip/diff engagement on so on. So mechanical wear and tear is going to eb similair. (Ok rings done in one direction will cause mroe wear to one side of a diff potentially)

Now I agree rings are pointless but so if drifting (most of the time) as its not quicker than driving with the perfect line.

So ya I am a bit miffed at the responses..... from both sides really.

Re: Wont do rings 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 3
Holy crap lads. I had no idea this thread was going to raise such an opinionated battle from all sides of the enthusiasts forum!!! Epic!!! I have a confession to make though as this is getting out of hand and I would like to keep some small bit of respect from you guys before you totally destroy me lol! The car Is standard, and I was just out having a bit of fun. I might hav exaggerated a little with 30 rings as it was prob more like 5 lol but it was still good fun. I didnt break the car it seems, It just doesnt like going round in circles!!! I shouldnt have bullshitted you with the extras but I just hate when know it alls try to bully people by way if their knowledge. I was just trying to prove a point that I do actually know quite a bit about building fast road cars! And to be honest i knew i shouldnt hav been doing that with a mid engined rear whrel drive car but I said fk it ya only live once. So I will start with an introduction now haha!!!
Im andy and have built 2 cars to date and modified everything ive owned!!!. My first was an MGZR with t16 turbo engine, fully forged and bored out ti 2.1, gas flowed polished ported head, stand alone, high lift cams, coil pack conversion, t3, scorpion turbo back, fmic, kaz gold fully adjustable coil overs, fully polybushed, and sitting on 15s with 888's. It was a little monster. Next was my tomcat 220 wich has more or less the same setup but still on a dizzy and standard ecu. I leave myself open to your taking the piss of me as I know I do deserve it lads. Hit me!!! Lol!!! I surrender my dignity to the forum for its conclusion!!!!
