    The issues and obstacles that stand before mankind will continue to be what they are, until every single person on Earth makes an inner decision to change their perspective of reality, instead of trying change reality to their perspective.

    A cop, a lawyer, and a politician are all out playing golf one day, and trying to figure out how many people they should put in prison. The cop says, "Let's make pot illegal, and anywhere it grows, everyone nearby goes to prison." The lawyer says, "No. We'll make giving away food illegal, and...

    Back in good ol' Oregon! Home sweet home! averaged about 27 mpg this time, and rolls MUCH smoother. Got a fresh pair of shoes up front, and the fronts moved back, and the bald rears off and gone. New Denso radiator coming in today from Rock! She's begun to develop a slight leak at a couple of...

    Daves is awesome! As well as ADA Racing, O'Neill Bros, Gizmo, and many others! So many thanks to all the guys who helped me with the build specs I was looking for! Hats off to the pros! [headbang] I only wanted one R/C, and I wanted a 2wd gasoline 5th scale specifically for it's size, handling...

    Checking in from Texas! [cheers] Just about finished with the trailer, and doing a few more little things to the car before we take off again. The Focus (Now dubbed 'Consuela') is getting some Timken hubs & bearings, a pair of Proforged outer rod ends, and a set of Proforged ball joints. along...

    Its a loooong shopping list, indeed. I believe about the only parts left still stock, is the radio box and the main chassis channel. I'm looking at driveshaft options again too, as her 10mm CVD shafts have been taking brutal punishment for a long while now. The last tranny rebuild was...

    Thank you! It has been a long 8 years of getting it together the way I like. Her $1k engine I built four years ago has stood out among all the other engines I have built. It took me about four months to slowly and meticulously prepare and assemble all the parts. The cylinder head and the...

    Thanks! It has been a blast so far! I was using it in the passenger seat off the inverter connected to the car battery while driving here, and just got the solar set up and running about a week ago [thumb] I have two 6amp panels feeding through a 20amp charge controller, and keeping my 850amp...

    Checking in from Colorado! It is gorgeous here! I camped out in the desert in Arizona, while on my way to the family ranch in colorado to see my brother and my 5yo nephew. I picked up a solar power system from Home Depot, and set it up on the cargo box lid facing south, so I now have all the...

    Pennies apiece, balance is the obvious issue. And yes there is a "lower rotating assembly", the crank, rods, pistons, and pins. Just as there is an upper rotating assembly, the camshaft and valvetrain...I have been building engines for 3 decades...you? ๐Ÿค”

    Well, the ol hag is ready to go! Pulled the trailer to here in socal from central Oregon, about 800mi, and averaged 33mpg. Been here visiting family, and found an old busted up dresser in the desert that I decided to repurpose as a cargo box. Worked fabulous! Pulls like a dream, and even looks...

    Sounds like a lower rotating assembly issue. Possibly worn out of balance? Did you replace crank & rod bearings, and/or check crank journals for wear? May have a bad crank. 150k is a short life for a good crank, but may have had an issue from the Frod factory that never got noticed. Just my $.02

    Game much? With well over 100,000 games for over 30 emulated consoles, I can play a different game every single day, for nearly 300 years, and never play the same game twice. The 1981 8-bit NES is my finest collection, with exactly 16,385 games. Every game ever released, from every country, in...

    The Durango is my Momma's, and the door belongs to my Daddyo's Jeep. The Durango is worn out, but the Jeep has too much cool stuff to list ๐Ÿ˜‰ And that's my kikin boo on the roof, Tinker, soaking up some of those SoCal ray's โค๏ธ So very true! It really doesn't matter what it is. If you take...
