WRC puts out some excellent videos. Here is the aerial special from Wales Rally GB.
Trying to arrange shipment for a customer and he sent me an email. In comic sans. Really? Seriously? GTFAC.
It is a very blue and truly excellent thing. A month later and I still giggle when it pops and crackles. Since it needed to be broken in and then the weather turned I haven’t really abused it, nor do I actually intend to. I can tell you that it is fast, pointy, relatively comfortable and completely awesome.
My wife’s Explorer is kind of a mess. After running it through the touchless car wash yesterday I clay barred the bugs off the front of it in preparation for wax. On the hood there is some nastiness that didn’t come off with the clay bar. Looks to be tree sap, bird crap and/or bug crap. There are also tiny specks of…
NFG tire as buffer image to represent the stupidity of the phone call I just had to make.
I was afraid that nail in my wife’s tire was too close to the sidewall to fix the tire, and it turns out it is. Looks like the Explorer needs four new tires since the ones on it are pretty close to worn out. Time to put the winter tires on it for now.
Time lapse videos are awesome. Rally is awesome. Here is an awesome time lapse of Citroen changing their car from gravel spec to tarmac spec. Awesome!
Here is the ATC audio with animation showing AF66 approach, landing and taxi at Goose Bay after the front fell off of their engine. The headline was their request after tower tells them that the safety crew was picking up parts of the cowling off of the runway. For clarification, subtitles in blue are other aircraft,…
It looks to be pretty intense and similar to Dakar. The Silk Way is a 16 day rally from Moscow to Beijing.
Yes, the update temporarily bricked my device. Yes, I backed up my device before attempting to update it. Everything got recovered since I backed up right before attempting the update, but there was a bit of concern.
“Gear down, four green.” Today we learn about landing Concorde, and some more of its unique features.
You may remember the other day when I posted that my local dealer has a Focus RS in the proper color parked in front of it. I’ve got a thing for the RS, so what I want to know is should I see if they’ll give me a test drive? The obvious answer is “yes, you idiot!”, but that leads to problems. The biggest one being…
My local dealer has a Focus RS in front of it. I had to stop and gawk at it today. Just to mess with my wife I texted her about it. Now she’s asking me what the balance would be if I traded in my STi on it. Professional pic of FoRS since my potato cam doesn’t do it justice. Nitrous Blue is glorious in person and…
“None of this poncy glass cockpit rubbish. These are proper instruments, needles and dials.” Have episode 2 of Captain Joe’s look at Concorde.
Of course you do. Here is the first in what will be a three episode series about Concorde from Captain Joe. In related news, I really need to go to the Brooklands Museum.
And ridiculously fast Fords.
So the blower fan on my truck quit working. I managed to get the hateful clips out and remove the panel to begin diagnosis. With the fan speed set to max I get battery voltage on one terminal and ground on the other terminal feeding the motor. From what I’ve read this indicates the problem is with the motor. Do I…
