everything is compressible, the steel blade is compressible, that is in fact how strain gauges work, but yes it doesn’t compress very much and as a result the athletes body takes abuse. That’s why I was suggesting designing some compressibility in, though I realize there is a balance to be struck since adding Read more

if your tv has a dynamic output you could get powered studio monitors. Those would sound great and meet your price point if you bought cheap or used

I have a Polk PSW 110 (100watt, 10inch woofer) that I got on sale for like 150$ a best buy. It works really well for me in my 750sqft apartment and it sounds great. Read more

you can get gearsets a couple hundred dollars, this system should cost less than 100$ to fit to an existing system. Yes there's margin, so call it 200, but there's no reason they can't offer it on a 500$ package.

That price is crazy, charging an order of magnitude more for a couple of servos, a small battery, and a microcontroller with a switch

platform base with a smaller cabin full of tinder built inside a bigger cabin to get things started. Later in the night that turns in to sort of a lean-to with a big log of ugly wood with reasonable size split logs leaning on it and a coal bed underneath. Makes for a nice fire to look at and sit around.

Of course! I grew up with a huge garden on a farm, a suburban apartment wasn’t going to keep be from having at least a few fresh veggies! Read more

I do all of my gardening is the finest "homer" buckets on my balcony. It's a classy operation.

You could throw it in a back lot till you’ve got the time to fix it. At this point if you sell it this year or next year it won’t change the value much.

yeah, they hold their value obnoxiously well. That’s bad when you buy, but great when you sell.

my alma mater’s team faced a similarly tragic fate. Car tested fine for a month prior, but developed a phantom fueling issue through all the dynamic events that ultimately made it get black flagged from enduro for being too slow

I’ve ridden both, the UJM was well cared for and the suspension, the brakes and overall steering/handling were still not good. If all you’re going to do is blast down straight roads, yes UJM’s have twice the power, yes they are much faster, but if you ride on a nice curvy road in the mountains, which in my opinion is Read more

It'll not sound great until you get a glasspack "cherry bomb" or a flowmaster for like a 100$. Then go to a muffler shop and weld it on enough pipe to get it behind the cab and a turn down for good measure.

That’s too bad. Every bike is a bit different. We had the same bike mix when I did my course. Moving to my ninja 250 was a revelation in handling. You realize now why many caution against the old Japanese bikes for first timers.

You are very correct, the drivers position also effects Cg. However, there are template rules, and the cars have super short wheelbases, the drivers feet are already in front of the front wheels, so there is only so far you can go.

After my course the instructors told us that we were more than welcome to and they in fact highly recommended that we come back and use the course, which they typically just leave set up on weekends, on our own bikes later once we had them.

the lack of helmet doesn't bother me, the lack of fire protection does and given the horrible burns he got from one of his previous jet engine builds you would think it would be a greater concern for him too, but clearly not

that's for the leafblower that starts the jet. Check out the previous two build videos if you're curious
