  1. Random thought thread

    When do guys break the rears? Is it launch, on gear shifts, with what kinda power/ETs?

    I'm your Huckleberry. I think, cool down, ice down, sticky mickeys, good air, right time...manual trans, driver mod, I think 10.9, MAYBE.... Maybe 10.8. MPH definitely 145. Edit: forget all those changes..just turning the AC off and not dripping condensate in front of the rear tires, 11.4, no MPH change.

    Well, if they're trusses I don't know why the beam was needed/wanted. If only to stiffen the trusses only one glulam would do it, but there are two side by side (instead of sandwiched like recommended.) Or maybe they wanted to store massive amount of weight in the middle of the "attic" If they're trusses, and you get some time, do some research on their specs to see if the beam and center posts could come out. But, that's a lot of effort and MONEY (glulam $6 per foot) to put in for no reason...
  5. I'm impressed by every aspect, especially the guts of the entire drivetrain at those TORQUE levels. Monster torque. Supercharged. Converter multiplication. 4:1 first gear. And the inertia of 4500 lbs. WOW.

    But....if the glulam beam is in the middle....what's the span from your back bumper to wall (door opening) near the camera? Are those trusses or rafters??

    What are the issues w/electric, doors, "where" it's built? I'd like more pics of the building....just curious. Trusses on 2' centers, right? Good and strong there, too.

    ^ Glulams in a post barn....hmmmm. See the way the glulams are bolted to the side of the 8x8(?) post and have a supporting 2x underneath? It's stronger to notch the post and set the beam on that notch.....sorry, I've got carpentry on the brain. It's plenty strong as it is... NIce car, good barn too.

    Stairs, well, at least 10 of 16 risers.

    Oh, a couple days ago I stopped and helped a semi driver climb out of his door after he'd parked it on it's side in a ditch. He was fine, I found out later it was a load of frozen chicken. I'm thinking about an opportunity. I think I'll take my family to clean up every food truck crash. Company name: "8Ps Food Abatement" .

    I was shown pics from yesterday of a 1968 R/T Hemi Charger on a trailer. Dust covered barn find. Bought out of...Paducah KY. Still had a 70s KY inspection sticker. Poor thing was an automatic car.
  12. When does property become "home"?

    lol I was telling someone the other day that the biggest accomplishment during my "remodel" was getting the wax ring and toilet installed after about 3 months with no "facilities" on site.
