That's strange. I wonder if they will March to DC to help stop mass stabbings?

 

Well no because knives are not scary, like those mean evil guns!

That motor was built by McLaren. It is an engineering work of art. Maybe more like a Jackson Polluck work of art, but a work of art.

A  1 hp/cid small block shebby is a "work of art"?   Another acid trip??  lol   Man, I'm the only person in my family to own a small block that's not OVER 1 hp/cid.


Almost edit:  Jackson Pollock's art....more acid trips, so I see what you did there. ;)  lol

Heck no, doesnt fit the agenda.  Its NOT about student safety, its about guns .

The poor student protesters arent even aware that they are nothing more than pawns in this mess and even if they get what they are out for...it WONT change a thing.  Those who dont believe that the lack of accountability, parenting and morals that led the kids to use the guns in the way they did is just as important in the fight against violence are naive at best or are all about pushing the party agenda despite the fact that it wont fix a damned thing.

Exactly, but the second you start speaking logically about the issue, you then become a racist, and an "NRA Pawn".

Well actually for a 1992 motor it isn't too bad, come on I know you know motors better than that. 390lb/ft of torque on that thing, it had to meet the emissions standards of 1992 and still have electronic controls.

For what it is, that's pretty decent.

However the 89 TTA was a way better car.

Truth, and Im not either one.  I literally just want my kid to not be an ass, and to be safe.  Common sense.

Yes, he may or may not be a good shot but it wont be for lack of trying.  He will learn about firearms and will be around them all his childhood life.  Same with tools, knives, cars, dogs...other generally accepted yet dangerous inanimate objects that are only dangerous when in the wrong hands or incorrectly/inappropriately used.

^ We recently filled out an EXHAUSTIVE survey regarding our oldest for a "survivor of chemo" study.  One question was "does he start fires", Yes or No.   Yes. ...my wife added "because we live in the country and burn brush piles".  :)

Odd, but never missed my Mustang GT when I was away from it.

But I miss my Camaro SS.

I think the LSx/LTx bug has bitten me deep!

It’s not a 15” conversion problem.  It’s a drag radial problem.  Don’t dyno on drag radials, they come apart.

I don't get why a dyno is any worse than the tire contacting the street. Enlighten me?

Had heads, cam, converter, full exhaust and some fuel system upgrades done at Disneyland. Now it's in the Toonerz hands. :yes:

This is all I've seen of it since it left my possession:

Two reasons.  One because you are putting a round surface on a round surface, the contact patch is very small.  This causes a lot of heat to build in the tire.

Two, because the roller, bends the belts backwards.  Normally rolling down a flat road, the section of tire touching the pavement doesn't go past flat.  On the dyno, it goes from the normal bend inside the tire, to bent backwards and it does that once every revolution.  Think about bending a paperclip back and forth.  Do that a few hundred rotations on each dyno pull all while putting big hp to the tire. 

If you ever go to a chassis dyno, pay attention to how much rubber is slung off your tire.  It's hard on tires.  I've seen ridials and bias ply slick leave piles of rubber on the dyno just from a few pulls.

M/T actually voids your tire warranty when you put any of their tires on a chassis dyno.

What he said.

I am really surprised they had it on the dyno with them on. Most of the shop owners I know won't allow that...

Ahh. OK. Good to know! :up:

You'd think the shop owner would have known this. The dyno manufacturer should've include that as part of the warnings, too.

Anyone know a good catfish rod? 

 

Something maybe for a 7-8lb tuxedo, calicos or marmalades maybe a good comparison.  :lol:
