  1. Random thought thread

    Same road as above. Trucker caused accident and drove off.

    How much money did it take?? A guy down the road has a Vette that runs 4.8/150, wants <$30k for it...
  3. Fishing

    Tino, free weekend is approaching. My son loves fishing our pond, bass seemed to get used to the spinner bait, so he tried little rubber minnows....started catching crappie. ??? I don't like the flavor of catfish or bass, but crappie is GOOD. Today he pulled several out of the water the 15 minutes I was mowing nearby. One was about 10" long...we're gonna have to actually get a fillet knife soon.

    A search here turned up nothing for Niki Lauda, which is a shame. He died Monday.

    Do you get enough "bite" on the street to see some of that rapid rear body squat like that slo mo?

    IMO things like a pinion snubber or any material to eliminate downward body travel (stiff shocks) is not correcting the root cause of the problem. And a risk with a snubber is possible damage to the body when all that force is concentrated on one point, especially repeated clutch dumps.

    Moral: when you have a diesel using a Bosch CP4 high pressure pump and have codes or driveability concerns indicating the possibility of low rail pressure, investigate the return fuel for metal. Chevy and Ford diagnostics are very long and complicated, but if you find metal in the return line you know right where to go.

    Got any vid of the GT launch?

    Hey, you've had some pretty good numbers considering how "backward" the rear end is acting.
  12. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    The pinion angle can remain as factory if either the control arm length changes (longer), or if the lower holes are closer to the front of the car. Right? (When speaking of the lower control arms, that is.)

    After posting above I see the Dodge van getting the win! I might have to load up the 15 passenger van and go get me all of us a win! BIG thanks to Mike for getting that news out! lol

    Great vid. Geometry error is evident (at least IMO). On the axle housing, moving the upper control arm mount up, or the lower control arm mount down would be the needed change. IMO. Been there/done that on a Chevelle (top up) and Fox body (lower down). Actually the Fox had a home built 9" that unknown to us already had it's top mount raised, and we also installed Southside lift lower arms. On a dump, the rear body shot upward, planting the tires brutally for a split second, then unload and spin. After taking those bars off, wheelies on the street. (HUGE tires sticking out of cut quarter panels take all the impressiveness out of that.. 31/13.5s )

    Can he convert that to 35mm slides? I'll get out the projector and move the Vietnam pics out.....
