The BMW went for 6k.

I didn't bid on it cause it was smoking big time and it had 204k miles on it.

I got out bid on a 2000 GMC single cab.

What did the gmc go for?

@Disney can you tune an explorer engine and ecu?

I got a coworker that is putting a 1997 explorer engine in a 1991 ranger. We are thinking of installing a b303 cam in it

I thought you had a ms3 on your car?

I don't think my coworker wants to spend extra money on one.

Did you know some youtube vids can be moved frame by frame?  After pausing press the period or comma to move forward or reverse.

That's why you don't drive fast on a dual sport bike(2nd vid).

Dog vid:

first guy was mostly screwed. front brakes may have played a part in the flip but tough to say.

The guy behind him didn't even try. he just laid it over....and dual sport bike..

Probably. Depends on the ECU code.

Well I am losing more respect for big rig drivers around here.

They have the least amount of regard for safety.

 

A big rig hit my wifes car yesterday morning, and the ass hat took off. Pretty much the police said that since no one chased him down or got a license plate there is nothing that can be done.

Every day I drive to work I just about void an accident because truckers don't look before changing lanes. AZ, CO, CA, MD, and TX are states I have been in and driven around and never have a I seen truckers drive this reckless.

Drivers around here are not that much worse either, yeah there are some idiots, but not nearly that bad.

We now get to have our insurance cover it because that douche nozzle took off.

Hate to hear it.  Shouldnt make your rates go up tho seeing that it wasnt her fault.  At least thats how State Farm did me both times.  So long as she's ok then its all good.

My best friend is a truck driver and I give him an ear full every time we go anywhere about how terrible some truck drivers seem to be around here.  He agrees and says he can name a few personally LOL

Yeah I really do have respect for truckers, but around here and driving i65 every day. I do not respect them along that corridor.

So many times I have gone onto the shoulder because they put their signal on and move right over.

Now don't get me started on the lazy drivers too, a turn signal is a requirement, otherwise it's an unsafe lane change without signalling properly. Or at least in CA it is technically an unsafe lane change.

Also the drivers typically with Alabama plates that play lane nazi, or lane police in the left lane and are not passing. Instead they are just going on a Sunday cruise in the left lane.
