    Bonus: OG build from 5 years ago
     
     
     
    But also I've shot the other car, which is from Canada. Unfortunately that iteration is no longer with us but the full rebuild is underway. For reference, many of these are full competition vehicles hence their classification in Unlimited class. Lightly modified cars that compete in Street or Street Modified are in most cases still legal for street use or double duty as HPDE.

    1. makes sense but even here in California if it is old enough that doesn't matter.
    2. odd restriction they are a safety feature 
    3. wtf the better safety system isn't allowed? I know I'm putting in 4 or 5 points in my modded civic
    4. daytime legal
    5. you don't need those if you had a 5 point oh wait
    6. ticket
    7. I thought that was Germany only no?
    Na J type 10/10 is the way to go. you can drop them into a late 90s to early 2000s civic. there are kitted out J types in odessys that make 1400hp+ but I don't know the civics have enough space under the hood to go that far.

    It's "playable", but not enjoyable with 3500u.
    Yeah that Predator is more than enough for Assetto Corsa, even good enough for Assetto Corsa Competizione or any sim racing games available.

    Stirling isn’t either.  There are some two cycle diesels around.  They’re famously dangerous though, and quite rare.  They produce so much power per litre though that the temptation remains around.  Not sure there are any rotary engines at all currently being made.  A lot of old Mazda rx-7s still about though.

    There's also Miller and Aktinson cycle as well, and there's also hit or miss engines but I don't think those are used much if at all anymore.

    There’s two cycle, 4 cycle (most engines), but there’s also diesel, turbines, rotary, and sterling.
     
    if you are talking about two cycle it only takes in fuel on cycle 1 so every other cycle, and a four cycle engine only takes in fuel on cycle 3 or something.

    Ordinarily_Greater got a reaction from Bombastinator in 3 Days of Impressions, Realme 5 Pro   
    to this community
     
    Hello. To start this I live in Asia, to be more specific I am Indonesian. As you've known this market is crowded with these chinese brands. They're aggressive with many phone releases and doesn't innovate that much as they try to combine what's on the shelf then plays on software and price.
     
    So I am here to bring you my temporary thoughts on this Chinese phone, its a Realme 5 Pro. Got this second handed, $170 USD converted, physically brand new just been rarely used. Because it was announced August this year anyway and probably begun selling in October. Also since Realme is on India and Europe I will try not to be biased as if Realme is only here.
     
    On paper this phone does get you far, running a Snapdragon 712, 4/128 (UFS 2.1) Memory config, 6.3 inch dew-drop 1080p 60hz IPS display, 4035 mAh with 20W charger in box. And a total anti deal-breaker it has a USB 2.0 type-C port with the 3.5mm jack on the phone. Yes, these things are the reason I picked it over anything at this price.
     
    On software, Android 9 out of the box with Color OS 6 which is quite near stock for me and you can take a look here
     

     

     
    Performance is smooth overall without lags or breaks that's meaningful. Gaming is stomped with ease as it's a SD 712. And I meant ease on CODM and those other big multiplayer games, this is truly a beast in games.
    On the feature set, this iteration of Color OS does bring you features that ease things like long screenshot, usual 3 finger screenshot, raise to wake up, stock screen recorder and for bloatware it breaks down to 5 unerasable, usefuln't apps as you can guess from the image above. The gripes are the settings, it's quite hard to get what you want (moving from Stock android ? without going to "Search".
     
    I haven't got to the camera before and GSMArena is the way to go for the results of it, click here
    Looking at the spec, it's a 4 camera setup with a main 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor @ f/1.8, 8MP Ultrawide @ f/2.2, two 2MP units one for depth and one for macro.
     
    As in GSMArena the camera setup reliable with short processing overall, the front camera can grab face details at the "honest and clear" level and can turn off beautification entirely. Portraits are able to diminish object from background in the "Great" just a tick behind "Amazing" level with the recap from the website "Ultrawide and Macro needs software work".
     
    What I can say for the battery, is it charges from 15% to 92% with the in box charger in 1 hour 12 minutes and I am not a usage tracker but there's the data in my phone. 9 hours 44 minutes of usage with screen on time of 4 hours 17 minutes in this day of posting. And I was able to get through the day to afternoon comfortably. I would categorize this lightly used though, with internet browsing being the main usage.
     
    So that's what I have for now, and Realme on it's credit is approaching a stock android experience with out of stock features and that each phone is going to get 2 years of support from them, so there will be many to be covered.
     
    Thanks community

    Most, if not all phones have this. However. Its good practice to not let your phone charge overnight, Or let it charge past 90 really. You'll get more battery life.

    When battery is full, trickle charging is method is used. That overcharge protection does sound like a marketing bullshit. You can read more about charging here

    Ordinarily_Greater reacted to Eigenvektor in Overcharge protection?   
    Pretty much every modern battery powered device has this. I don't think the average person cares and/or knows what it is, so companies generally don't advertise it.
     
    I think its one of those things were one company advertises something in the hopes of confusing consumers by making it appear as if they're the only ones that have it or as if that was something special.

    Of course
    We plan to stay at bukit bintang in Kuala Lumpur, and I believe that Kuala Lumpur is in Selangor.
    Can you recommended some store for me. It is great to buy online, but we can't handle with shipping time that can got delayed.
     
    The last time, I got my friend buy it for me. And when they come back to Indonesia, I instructed them to sent the box and other thing via post, while he bring the laptop and charger via hand carry. With this the laptop will become like his personal laptop so it will be devoid any tax and custom

    For legal reasons e-bikes are limited to 25 km/h where I life but basic principles apply also to higher speed: the more motor power you use (what you do at higher speed, hills or the stop and go in the city) the lower your range is. The 100km is normal conditions like biking next to a river. If you decide to go up hill range can dramatically drop another 50%. 
     
    With good quality battery's it is fine. With low end battery packs which might not even reach there rated capacity one year would be a good guess if you use it daily before you need to lower the support level in order to get the needed range.

    Ah well, They're both normal bikes, just saying that i would be very surprised if the welds wouldnt hold up to 40km/h (MTB is a Calibre bossnut evo, Road bike is a Specialized tarmac disc expert)

    132WH isn't much energy.and the range they advertis is often ideal condition: depending on how you use it half the range could be realistic. Like I sad if you just want the bike for 12 km per day it should be fine. If you want to use it for different things the range will annoy you.
    For reference other ebikes have 600 WH and get around 100 km under realistic conditions.

    I converted a pretty decent mountain bike ( to electric last year but was a bigger pain in the ass than I had expected it to be. I got one of those 1000W kits from Amazon and got lucky with the batteries because hobbyking was having a sale (3 x 4s 16AH for a total of around 700wH for $150 USD). It was front wheel drive, because I figured it would be easier to deal with than the rear sprocket etc, but the front dropouts on the fork ended up breaking off, because it was some brittle aluminum alloy and was not designed for that much torque in the front. I ended up having to get a cheap chinese steel fork but the mounting holes for the front disk brakes were slightly off, coupled with the motor being too wide, so I had to replace the front brake caliper, and even then it didn't ever line up properly. I designed a 3d printed enclosure for the batteries, and that was the only part of the bike that went well. I built it because I wanted to use it to get around my large and hilly college campus, but it ended up being so big, heavy, and cumbersome that I only used it maybe 15 times in a year and ended up walking/taking the bus.

    It would honestly be much easier to strap on a little 1cyl 2 stroke motor with ~$80 worth of hardware off Ebay. Another option to keep in mind.

    Not good. If battery's are cheap and you are fine with swapping it during the rides it is fine. For daily 12 km it will work.

    im not familiar with that bike, but its not just about the speed.  its not about the torque that the motor puts on the hub.
    low quality components will get destroyed by putting a motor on it.

    Uh, it's not as simple as plugging some things in and having it work...
    It's going to cost hundreds of dollars, months of planning and design, fabrication tools and experience, and that's assuming you already have some engineering experience in both mechanical and electrical.
