Back in March of last year I had a fantastic experience at my parents local Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealership. My moms 07 Santa Fe finally kicked the bucket at 265,000ish miles (she bought it brand new in 06). There was knocking coming from the engine and glitter in the oil and filter.
Her requirements were that she… Read more
This is a really well done video. Sounds like overall for N/A the 6.2L aluminum engine from the Escalade/Denali is the engine to have. Same packaging as the others but the biggest displacement.
machining that metal plate is likely more expensive. PLUS they cant make a thick bulky shifter lever that carries a ton of mass to make shifts feel more compliant and less mechanical. Oh, and to reduce NVH.
Probably cannibalized Dakota axles just like the Viper
If I recall correctly from when South Dakota raised their limits to 80 MPH speed limit they decided strict enforcement was a MUST. Sure you were driving 80 before but youre still only going to do 80. They had HEAVY patrolling for at least a year after and from what I hear they only have about a 5mph variance now. 85… Read more
My dream livery for a camper would look like a log cabin. Seems pretty obvious and simple.
This was actually good though.
I explained this to a guy at the bar a couple months ago. He said its all computer signals now blah blah (referring t0 CAN-BUS). I illustrated how square wave signals work and how you can diagnose a bad signal pretty easily with an oscilloscope, cheap ones of which can be had. He actually seemed to be coming around on… Read more
Kid Rock was excellent in Joe Dirt
But will they fill it at my local brewery?
We should all be on the Kodak calendar
High speed damping is usually softer, or increases at a much lower rate, than low speed damping. Take a look at a typical shock absorber damping plot of damper velocity on the x and damper force on the y. There is typically a “knee” where internal valving opens at a certain damper velocity allowing the damper to… Read more
I couldnt even take time to process his shitty attempt at a scientific experiment because I was too focused on what youre saying.
I would agree with the aesthetics over all else with a note, its the exact opposite. Its like the Prius and many of the other “green” cars, they’re deliberately ugly so smug environmentally pious people can go “look, I care about the environment so much that I’m willing to drive this ugly thing!”
Something I praised… Read more
