  • nocooler: Fuck the EPA - [link] #rpmact  Look what they are doing to PFI speed
    June 17 2021, 10:29:45 PM
  • Steve Wood: I am surprised that this has not been the "rule" for years now.  It has happened to others...I recall John Spina getting hit years ago but it seems to have come in drips or drabs...I think it will be frequent now.  Sucks

  • TexasT: [link] JH diesel got clipped too. Gotta collect up to pay for all the handouts.
    June 19 2021, 09:10:39 AM
  • nocooler: So today I lashed the valves on my riding lawn mower. First time in 15-16 years. Hell the oils only been changed once! It was turning over hard and seemed down on power in thick grass, yeah the lash on the intake valve was looser than most plug gaps. Reset it to .005 cold and now it starts nice and easy.

  • nocooler: About the EPA, why are they going after the middle men? The responsibility should be on the manufacturers and end users.
    June 19 2021, 12:58:21 PM
  • Steve Wood: aiding and abetting I would guess
    June 19 2021, 04:04:27 PM
  • TexasT: I imagine the EPA is just hitting the low hanging fruit. Easy pickins for some cash generation.
    June 20 2021, 11:13:15 PM
  • TexasT: [link] as if anyone buying these types of vehicles cares about the gas mileage.
    June 21 2021, 12:39:16 PM
  • Forzfed: I'm glad we don't have to put up with the crap the EPA puts on you guys.  I love riding my smokey 2 stroke!
    June 22 2021, 11:34:29 AM
  • Forzfed: It's funny because my cousin live in Cali for years and the state would ticket out of State cars for EPA violations yet there are all these beaters pumping out smoke that never gets pulled over.
    June 22 2021, 11:35:48 AM
  • Forzfed: Because they don't want to target the poor! :hmm
    June 22 2021, 11:36:13 AM
  • nocooler: The sad thing is - Motorsports is such a small percentage of the emissions picture.
    June 22 2021, 11:41:39 PM
  • Steve Wood: Politics demand that one goes after the weak and not the strong.  It's the old search for the guilty and punish the innocent routine.
    June 23 2021, 11:23:42 AM
  • nocooler: Happy 4th of July everyone!
    July 04 2021, 11:49:17 AM
  • Steve Wood: Thanks Jeremy!
    July 04 2021, 11:18:02 PM
  • nocooler: [link] - This a great video breaking down Volumetric efficiency and how it applies to tuning
    July 13 2021, 12:10:59 PM
  • Steve Wood: On Engine Masters last year  Season 5 Episode 4, I believe they did an interesting comparison between iron heads and aluminum heads.  Their results and theories were pretty much opposite from what I read in magazines.

  • daveismissing: Is there a commonly available GNX type rear suspension setup
    July 16 2021, 07:47:29 PM
  • nocooler: For a gbody or in general? 3rd and 4h gen fbodys were torque arm suspension as well

    July 16 2021, 09:04:48 PM
  • Steve Wood: dave, was not the zddp guy selling one?
    July 18 2021, 01:00:59 PM
  • daveismissing: I thought they had done a run of repros but those were no longer on anyone's shelves, I could be wrong. Wonder why that never became a natural progression for car owners that wanted to add performance
    July 21 2021, 09:51:00 PM
  • Steve Wood: too much money for what it provided
    July 21 2021, 10:06:11 PM
  • nocooler: Wow - they are giving a wally to the winner of dig or die, NHRA is seeing the movement.
    July 24 2021, 11:22:17 PM
  • Steve Wood: Jeremy, I think the high end of NHRA has moved out of the dreams and aspiration of the average guy on the street.  It's hard to identify with Top Fuel, Funny, or ProStock anymore.  They have to find something that the average guy can relate tol
    July 27 2021, 01:30:55 PM
  • TexasT: Same happened to nascar. When it turns to a cubic money d!c? Measuring contest us commoners loose interest.
    July 27 2021, 02:29:34 PM
  • daveismissing: I'm with Earl NO "Nattys". Also this whole "brothers" thing doesn't work for for me
    July 27 2021, 05:53:16 PM
