    May 19 2021, 09:05:57 AM
  • Steve Wood: Interesting. It ran everything else off

  • nocooler: Do you need a full floater?
    May 21 2021, 12:19:19 PM
  • TexasT: Just need a rear. I have a car too many and one is the odd man/car out without a rear. Was looking at the 9" or maybe a s60 or an 8.5 if I could locate. But if I'm buying anyway the nine inch I'd pretty indestructible at my power level.
    May 21 2021, 04:53:22 PM
  • TexasT: Full float would kinda keep the wheel in the wheel well in the event of axle breakage.
    May 21 2021, 04:54:42 PM
  • TexasT: [link]   I'm looking at a big pump to run the e85 and this pwm  controller for this dw440 looks like it would support plenty at 750hp on e85 . Thinking I could control it with a holley or ecugn but not sure
    May 21 2021, 07:09:15 PM
  • nocooler: It’s your money, but either of those ecu’s should be able to Pwm a pump without the controller.
    May 21 2021, 07:42:24 PM
  • TexasT: So an aftermkt ecu could run a pwm circuit? That is good info. I'm not all up on this so just trying to read up and learn. I know I will need a lot of fuel delivery when using e85 . Just not sure I need all that when idling or just cruising around.
    May 23 2021, 11:26:51 AM
  • nocooler: Yes to pwm you’ll need a solid state relay. I’d only worry about to much pump if you start over heating the fuel. But a single pump should be fine without the pwm, unless it’s like a 5gpm brushless

  • xpander343: dumb question, oil idiot light comes on when you turn the key on correct? I don't think I have the connector on very well, mine doesn't come on with ignition
    May 23 2021, 11:37:09 PM
  • Steve Wood: should come on until the oil pressure hits 4 psi so either bad connector or sensor, I would think
    May 24 2021, 11:50:53 AM
  • Steve Wood: believe there is a tan wire going to the ound that with key on and the oil light in the dash should come on.
    May 24 2021, 01:46:04 PM
  • xpander343: thank you Steve, that's how i figured it should work.  I had the car pretty pulled apart, so couldn't remember if that was how it was or not.
    May 24 2021, 11:50:56 PM
  • TexasT: [link] shill my a$$, doing what his constituents elected him to do, which is more than I can say for a lot of senators
    May 27 2021, 01:49:58 PM

  • Steve Wood: I am happy for Helio!  He has still got it!
    May 31 2021, 12:01:05 AM
  • Just a Six?: I watched a bit of both races & so much better with fans in the stands! Hendrick cars are all possible winners each race this year & almost pulled off the 1, 2, 3, 4 again.
    May 31 2021, 01:10:33 PM
  • Steve Wood: Hendrick is back with a vengeance this year....I like #9 (Chase Elliot) just because his father was a great racer but Larsen #5 had the field well in hand.  He was really fast.
    May 31 2021, 05:57:18 PM
  • Steve Wood: this was about as close as you can cut it and keep going...might have been some problems in the Busch family that night  [link]

    June 06 2021, 04:33:20 PM
  • Just a Six?: Wow they were $60 cheaper than website price so nice surprise plus I didn't go over the invoice but that's tax included.
    June 07 2021, 05:28:31 PM
  • daveismissing: A Ford Maverick is now a li'l truck. I'm having a hard time getting past that...
    June 08 2021, 10:01:55 PM
  • Steve Wood: well, Maverick is a mis-use of the word anyway.  Dogie would have been a more apt term for a lil truck.  For the more interested, Sam Maverick, from whence the term maverick is derived was an actual person here in Texas
