RE: How old is too old?

IMO it's 90,....(I'm 81)

RE: Nascar Follies

Whenever the clutch is 'fried' it usually causes the clutch to fail to engage. I took it to mean that the transmission was first stuck in 4th gear, and he deliberately had to 'slip' the clutch in order to get going during the restart. And, this caused the overheating of the clutch. but it held long enough to finish the race. I agree that Kyle Busch is one of the great Nascar drivers, but sometimes great drivers run into some good luck. GO KYLE BUSCH!

RE: Nascar Follies

On any given race, any of the top 5 drivers will win the race if he's driving the winning car. We're not really trying to see who is the best driver, but we sure will see the winning car.

RE: Looks like electric trucks and RVs may be delayed...

IMO we're all paying for the field testing of EVs. It seems like we're adding more problems, and fewer solutions. No wonder my grand daughter wants to graduate from Harvard.

RE: Chicken Before Egg?

Huevos Rancheros,......two eggs

Someone said it means "Fake a Laff". Like if at a party someone tells a joke and you don't get the punch line, but you laugh anyway. LOL
Cloud Dancer 06/16/21 07:22pm Around the Campfire

Everyone knows the meaning of LOL,...right? BUT, what is the meaning of FAL?

RE: Nascar Follies

Lots of money, lots of sponsors, lots of racing/management experience and knowledge, and Chet Knaus, AND Chevrolet, and very good crewchiefs, and four(4) winning drivers, and at least four raceteams. I'll put my $$$$$$$ on Rick Hendrick,....for the Championship

Helio Castroneves and Roger Penske

I enjoyed the irony of it.

RE: Cost of RVing

Just another expensive pleasure. I'm just glad I didn't borrow money to pay for it. I'm still willing to pay some more cash for it.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

I owned, and used, five(5) pre-owned gas-engined motorhomes PRIOR to special-ordering my diesel-pusher Dutch Star. BUT, I knew from the start that there was NO gas motorhome that would satisfy my basic knowledge of RV design. The problem was, and still is, that I always insisted on paying cash for any motorized vehicle that I bought (including aircraft). This simply means that I've never bought a top shelf vehicle. I always bought a compromise vehicle. I have a lot of experience and education, both of which have significantly enhanced my intuition. Yes, I believe you can enhance your initial intuition (requires explanation, I know). Back to the subject: The Spartan chassis under my Dutch Star has some excellent design features, such as big tires, a 276 inch long wheelbase, a big rear-mounted torky engine with a big side radiator and big hydraulic-motored fan, a great IFS suspension with excellent steering system (with dampers), and a trick-design suspension with OPTIMUM spring rate RATIO whether empty or loaded. I could go on and on, but I'll just say that while the comfort, the directional stability, and the handling are GREAT,....my Dutch Star is far from perfect. HOWEVER, there is no gas-engine motorhome that'll match it.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

Mondooker, Sorry I'm late. It's good to hear we might be BOF's (birds of a feather). I started racing at age 13-1/2, in a 1952 650cc Triumph (my Dad had Harleys). I also seriously got into Enduro Go Karts (won 2 National titles and got inducted into the IKF Hall of Fame). Then, got into dirt Sprint cars (with and without wings). I won several track championships in Sprints. There's a lot more to my racing story, but I want to say more about motorhomes.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

I lived through the development of the Country Coach products when Bob Lee was in charge. And, I've done the research on the Eugene Prevost history. I built street rods during my high school years and got into oval track racing during my college years. I studied and practiced the technical elements of chassis dynamics. I became seriously interested in motorhome chassis dynamics due to the fact that I owned several during my auto racing involvement. BUT, I never puffed on a "piece" pipe nor a peace pipe.

RE: Gas Vs Diesel Yah-Yah-Yah!

So many of these opinions come from lack of knowledge. If you want to know exactly how to achieve the performance features you prefer, you first need to acquire a whole lot of knowledge in the field of motor vehicle chassis dynamics. With the knowledge that I have on this subject, I will say that the only person that I know of who actually knew how to build a great motorhome (and did it) is the person who designed and built the COUNTRY COACH.

RE: Obesity in America

I eat for the pleasure, NOT for the nutrition. Yet, I only weigh 166 lbs. Smaller potions of food, and staying active, is the answer. Actually, I'm not an expert.

RE: Nascar Follies

Regarding rules for Texas All Star. Kyle Busch loves re-starts and inverted starts.

RE: Nascar Follies

In my experience, many years of racing THEN designing, financing, constructing, operating a racetrack,.....some of the safety rules are dictated by the insurance company. FWIW I agree with this one, afterall; Dega is home of the big one. OK, so what about JJC's resume disqualifies her? She's turned a lot of laps at Daga. * I don't know her resume. IMO she's the one who is willing to do it. But the rule, and the rulebook, are there for a reason. The rules are for all drivers,....even Kyle Busch. When in doubt, I apply vector analysis.

RE: Nascar Follies

Shades of Clyde Beatty cracking a whip and shooting his .38 Special, with gorgeous blondes on the flying trapeze overhead. And 2 years later watching the the mighty midget race cars on dirt (Evans Oval). THEN, came the P-51 Mustang! There sure was a lot going on, for my bucket list.

RE: Nascar Follies

Yeah, we're going to re-invent the wheel. It took 50 years for the evolution of the NASCAR Cup stock car on pavement. And, for the Late Model Dirt stock car to evolve into a very efficient dirt oval racecar. But, at least NASCAR knows they're in survival mode. I'll be watching to see what they try next.
