Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Just make them dirt roads, like true dirt, not gravel. Just needs to be graded every once in a while.

 

Gravel can go die, that stuff basically says "I'm gonna f you up" to paint and tires.

I like dirt more than than gravel. Though wet gravel > dry dirt.

Three hour ride on the bike to get to my summer home, back is dead because I had a huge backpack but its great to be here.

 

Weather was awful, cold, rainy and windy as hell all the way but it was fun anyway.

 

A bird hit my face while I was going 120km/h though so I probably need a new helmet 😔 poor bird too, at least it probably died a fairly quick death


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

You know, I just realized that I probably am overestimating fuel costs for what it's worth, even in a car like a Crown Vic.

how many miles a day you expect to drive?

9-40 miles, depending on if I only go to work on a specific day (that’s the 9 miles) or if I decide to do something on an off-day (probably 20-40 miles especially if I’m driving all around Huntsville and Madison).

Spoiler is just a tad too tall for me, but damn, that's clean. The MX-6 never really got my eye, but that one's damn nice. Good stuff

Does anyone have experience with different foam guns? I scored a new pressure washer last weekend and would like to give a foam gun a try, but I hear there's a lot of difference between the different ones.

yeah there is. I don't have personal experience tho.... Maybe AmmoNYC has a video on it? I'd trust anything he recommends... it's just always expensive

Thanks for the idea, I should look through his vids and see if he says anything about a particular option.

Nice. If they made a coupe MK3 MR2 I'd sell my soul for it. The bolt on hard top isn't the same as a real roof.

I have the fasmov foam cannon. Got it on amazon for less than $20 but I need to keep adjusting the foam mixture I think it is because they get blocked up after a while so keep them clean whichever one you get. Also a good starting dilution is 1:10 parts water to soap.
