  • 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

  • TexasT: Same happened to nascar. When it turns to a cubic money d!c? Measuring contest us commoners loose interest.

  • Steve Wood: not sure what I just watched but the comments were good!

  • nocooler: I was laughing when he was backing up and it kept crab walking. Looked like the rear end had 3-4" of side to side travel under the car. Some people just shouldn't build cars......
    September 01 2021, 09:11:46 AM
  • Steve Wood: Yep, I wondered why the car was wandering all over the place.  Looked like me backing into my carport while ago

  • Forzfed: So, you need a body and suspension lift to go fast? :hmm

  • nocooler: [link] - most know for the leaf spring radial car they run, and "beer money" that they no prep race. Beer money they won on the $10k drag shootout

  • Steve Wood: the Japanese are truly clever.  They designed the air filter on my Suzuki Carry such that it will not start when the filter is clogged so you know when to start it
    October 09 2021, 07:52:16 PM
  • Steve Wood: When to change it...
    October 09 2021, 08:29:40 PM
  • nocooler: That's an awesome feature, as long as the operator is aware of it. Most people would probably crank it until the battery or starter died, or the person that pulls the filter and forgets to replace it.
    October 14 2021, 04:26:17 PM
  • Steve Wood: these little kei trucks are truly awesome but I guess they do need maintenace now and then.  The damn caliche dust does a number on the filters and because you have to take the seats out to see the engine, it is not readily apparent...  Three cylinder hemi with 660 ci.
    October 14 2021, 07:02:59 PM
  • nocooler: They are a great bang for the buck, a used one is a little more expensive than a golf cart but considerably cheaper than a sxs.
    October 15 2021, 12:21:40 PM
  • Steve Wood: A few years ago, you could buy a good one for $2500 but they are more than that now.  Hunters and farmers use them.  Not road legal in Texas but a farmer has some exemptions to that within about 25 miles of home.  You can put it in 4wd and drop it in grandma and it moves at a walking pace with barely any gas.  Golf carts are high around here in comparison for what you get.  Not nearly as useful for most things.  People drive golf carts to the post office and grocery store around here.    They are good for sneaking up on deer and such LOL
    October 15 2021, 01:31:12 PM
  • nocooler: Samurai's, sidekicks and trackers were really popular up here, but the 90's Japanese steel pretty much disintegrates in the elements up here.
    October 15 2021, 05:32:38 PM
  • Steve Wood: Out here in west Texas where it does not rain, that is a lesser problem.  Some of those little "toys" were actually a lot of fun if you stuck to fun.  Every time I see one some place, I want it...LOL  the ones with larger engine swaps are really fun!!
    October 15 2021, 05:38:25 PM
  • Steve Wood: Jeremy, Engine Masters tonight compared Race gas, oxygenated race gas, E85, and Methanol all on the same carbureted engine...prett y interesting

  • daveismissing: QOTD: "Some review data before engine failure. Others review data after engine failure. Which one are you?"
    October 24 2021, 07:29:13 PM
  • Scoobum: Jeremy, do you know of a machine shop in Michigan that's good with these engines. Got a guy from there that needs a bore and hone cuz of ring ridge and an align bore and magnufluxing everything. PM me if you want. TIA
    October 26 2021, 09:32:40 AM
  • nocooler: Honestly Brad - I've been out of the Buick world to long. Used to be the smaller town shops can do the bore/hone, but they'll sub out the line bore to a higher production shops, which could be on the other side of the state.
    October 26 2021, 11:22:04 AM
  • Scoobum: No problem. I understand.
