Car Talk 5: The Juice is Loose!

Or I have two timing chains ready to pop and make my day a bad day.
E30 is immune for sure. #timingbeltgang

The trucks seem to be immune.

Struck with a horrendous migraine yesterday afternoon that lasted all night. I can't recall pain that bad in a while. Ibprofen didn't work, ganja did thankfully. Still dealing with a bit this morning. :disgust: I went to the field yesterday, (Didn't work out before) and had to go take measurements ...

Been working my way through Black Mesa, the HL remake on the Source 2 engine.
It's fantastic.

I just don't want to deal with 40 phone calls, 22 faxes, 17 emails, and 300 hours of bullshit to get that $5 out and close the account.

Finally thawed out here, was icy Monday-Wednesday.
No ill affects, never lost power, and dripped a faucet, zero water issues.

Why :triggered: Fed? :lolol: You don't remember the great :poorvette: loan crisis of :melon: circa 2015? I still have $5 open in that account, I never closed it. I still get mail from them for loan offers, got one for a home finance offer. I toss them with great prejudice to this day. Fuck them.

Do you even invest?

I'll ride the BTC wave for a few more days, and I'll pull back out, and await the inevitable drop. I've made about 30% so far, so I'm happy. That's a great return. It'll ride high in the Tesla hype for a while, but I wouldn't count on it going much higher. That's my thought, and even if I miss the ...

The best part about that :truk: is the engine. It fixes the issue with every Mid sizer on the market, short of the Ranger. Colordo/Canyon have the same NA V6 with the same output and same 8-speed (I know Nissan is 9) transmissions. JT isn't far behind with the 3.6 and ZF 8-speed. What am I missing ...

New Frontier seems to be "just another truck" The engine is relatively the same as the 3.6L in the GM trucks. It looks like a Tacoma. It tows a hair under 6,800 lbs. The GM trucks are best at on-road towing. The Tacoma is best off road. The Ranger is a decent all rounder. I'm glad Nissan u...

One dude was his second time out, he's done bracket racing, but never AutoX and has been killing it right out of the gate.

I'd like to get into more track events myself.

Yeah, I never really dive to deep into academic exercise of the whole thing. I set the RE's at 30-28psi and try to git gud.
