RE: Gas 11 years ago from a Forum memeber

I just paid $4.22 per gallon for gasoline, in San Antonio. If you insist, I'll give credit where credit is due.

RE: Camping Safety

I'm 82, and I've almost always felt like I lived in danger. BUT I do NOT live in fear. Today I feel like there is more danger than previously. If I say more, it'll be political,....sorry.

RE: The man who invented the Motorhome

Sometimes I just wish I could grab him by the neck and shake him. (the same for the person who invented the bassboat,....etc) humor

RE: Nascar Follies

Dirt tracking (Sprint Cars) is my true love. Tomorrow (Sat) the Camping World Trucks (NASCAR) are racing at Knoxville Raceway, and some of my favorite drivers will compete. I will be checking it out. Go Kyle Busch

RE: Don't let your guard down, Covid is still out there...

In any of these hobby forums,...there needs to be an element of entertainment,...IMO. The problem is that many people enjoy being argumentative.

RE: Don't let your guard down, Covid is still out there...

Science gave us the atom bomb. And, science played a big part in the production of lots of Toyotas. Believing it is optional. Personally, I prefer to error on the side that makes the most sense. That's why I like vector analysis. Periodically replacing the air filter on my engines, and on my face, makes sense.

RE: The price of fuel is not nearly high enough

There's a bizillion people like myself,....who have always wanted more than they can afford. I've always worked hard, and had money in my pocket,...but never enough to buy everything I wanted. And now, it's worst. It looks like the number of poor people will keep outnumbering the others. IMO the rest of the discussion is political, and religious, Sorry My RVing plan is to keep maintaining/fixing my diesel-motorhome, boat, SUV, etc, AND take shorter and fewer trips.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

I've made several mistakes in the last 72 years. It hurts.

RE: RV retail sales drop 31% April year over year.

IMO Whenever people have a need to choose the truth, and there's too many of them who do NOT choose wisely,,........??? All you need to realize is ",,,,,,and divided we fall".

RE: The price of fuel is not nearly high enough

The gouging is a very ugly part of it IMO. It hurts the people on the lower part of the pay scale in a very harsh way.

RE: What's up with CGs?

I have my mind made up on pitbulls. My mind. my conclusions. Their campground, their rules. However, I don't like their "rv over 10 years old rule".....

RE: Nascar Follies

The top 3 odds-on favorites to win at Gateway Saint Louis Raceway are Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, and Marten Truex Jr. Of course we all know that all 3 are excellent drivers, but anymore there are too many other variables that enter into the outcome. The track itself is kinda tricky, and it will require a lot of gear shifting. I hope some good racing will develop. I'll watch the first 30 minutes, and probably the last hour.
Cloud Dancer 06/03/22 08:49am Around the Campfire
RE: Nascar Follies

I saw the last hour of the race, and got treated to some good racing. My man Kyle Busch didn't have a winning car, but darn near "stole" another win (came in a very close second). Was happy for Chip Ganasi, at INdy.

RE: Nascar Follies

NASCAR has made more millionaires out of drivers than any other USA racing organization. IMO smart drivers are careful to measure their words whenever they say anything critical about NASCAR. I'm sure NASCAR will find the solution to the nut problem. (I get to watch for free....)

RE: Nascar Follies

* The heat build-up is significantly much higher in NASCAR racecars vs F-1. PLUS, it's much easier to get rid of the heat in F-1 brakes, and wheels. So the wheel nuts heat up and expand at a greater rate than the spindles so they loosen up? I wasn't sure if it was an issue with the wheels not seating fully before the wheel nut is tightened or a failure of the nut/spindle or something else. * Be aware that what I do is look at the brake energy, vector analysis, thermal dynamics, my years of experience with steel, aluminum, and magnesium wheels (with "knock-off wing or hex single nuts}. THEN, I take a WAG as to what might solve THEIR problem. I believe it's a metal GALLING problem. If you look at all the elements of the problem, what they have is a "perfect storm" for metal galling,.....especially if they overtighten the nut when everything is unevenly hot. AND, if they're using left-hand threads on half of the hubs,...who knows if the impact air gun is set on the proper mode? For all we know they might first erroneously tighten a hot-hot system ,...and THEN attempt to loosen the nut???? I wish I was Penske. I would buy me spanking new $$$90K Ranger bass boat and go fishing. Years, ago when I bought mine, it came with stainless steel engine mounting bolts WITH brass self-lock nuts.

RE: Nascar Follies

Let me preface my question with the fact I don't watch much car racing in general, but I do stop for a few minutes when channel surfing if a race is on. I ask out of ignorance. Don't F1 cars use a single central nut on their wheels? Why don't they have similar issues with wheels coming off? Are there design differences between the wheels (other than the obvious size/width) that make F1 wheels easier to install/secure? * The heat build-up is significantly much higher in NASCAR racecars vs F-1.

RE: Nascar Follies

Remember those wheels and attachments are made in Germany. You know anything Europe puts out is better than anything made in the good old USA. * Thanks for the tip. I'll get Penski, Gibbs, and Hendrick to call Germany, and order 40 brass and 40 titanium nuts apiece. They can afford to experiment a bit (they get a tax break).

RE: Nascar Follies

New wheel was suppose to stop all of the old problems, seems it’s causing more problems I would try a brass nut.

RE: Nascar Follies

Kansas race was good for the Busch brothers. Kyle is now 3rd in points standings and Kurt moved up to 18th.
Cloud Dancer 05/16/22 01:55pm Around the Campfire
RE: Nascar Follies

Kyle Busch is 5th in Nascar points. As a driver, he's one of the top five. However, this sport is not like boxing. In auto racing, how well the car performs is more important than the driver. On any given race, any of the top five drivers could've won the race IF they had driven the winning car. (all IMHO)
