RE: Nascar Follies

Anyone watching eNASCAR? I watch a few shows last year and it was kind of interesting.

RE: Insanity in the grocery stores...

Our Walmart has signs stating only 1 purchase of toilet paper and sanitizer will be allowed for refund. Only to complicate matters while there all the items in their coolers were covered with tarps because their coolers were shutting down. You had to lift the tarps to find what your looking for.

RE: How many times can you torque bolts on a hitch?

Most bolts in an engine are torqued. The engine heats and cools thousands of times. How often do you re-torque those bolts?

RE: Idler and Tensioner Pulleys Ram 6.7

Had an idler pulley on my Duramax let go and went threw the radiator at 120,000 miles. Expensive! Then I find out that GM suggests replacing them all at 100,000 miles. I sure wouldn’t wait for 200,000.

RE: Tesla's stock surge adds $15 billion to Elon Musk's fortune

Such is life. The rich get richer and the average person struggles along. These billionaires own more money than most people could possibly spend in a lifetime, and they always want more. i'm sure they could afford to send a million my way if they were feeling generous. Dream on.... If it wasn’t for a lot of those rich folks we’d still be hunting with a bow and arrow.

RE: Your Favorite Browser?

Safari on iOS. It’s a real pleasure getting out of the Microsoft mess. Just turn it on and it works. Now, isn’t that a great idea?

RE: 2017 F350 6.7. Inspection?

I’m at a loss of how they can inspect anything in the drive train with out a partial tear down. Sounds expensive to me.

RE: Would you plug in here.

They have power like that everywhere in Mexico. No one seemed concerned there.

The drama of who will get the first win has ended. Byron, Johnson, 1-2

RE: Nascar Follies

^ Nascar is no longer about the racing. It's all about the crash and whoever is lucky enough to be running out front at the end gets the trophy. I enjoy it less but am inexplicably compelled to continue watching. ^This

Grand Designs are breeding like rabbits. Something must be good.

RE: how do dey do dat ?

Don't really know exactly how it is done, but there still idiots out there that will try backing one up without a spotter, and will run all over something or someone. Drove a truck for more years than i want to count. Backed up a trailer literally thousands of times (PER YEAR). I can count on one hand the number of times there was a spotter. Have a friend that was helping a guy hook up. Latched hitch. Driver ask if he was sure. He said “hell yes, get going. Yep, destroyed his bed.

RE: F350 Super Duty vs 3500 Denali vs The Ike Pulling 30k lbs

If it can average 42 mph it would reach the top of the hill in 10 minutes 50 seconds. According to the drag formula it would require 89 HP tp overcome drag and rolling resistance at 42 mph. 320 minus 89 leaves 231 HP which is the required HP to raise the 39000 lbs 2120 feet in 6 minutes and 50 seconds. Edit: I guess I should have quoted the definition of HP: 1 horsepower is the power required to raise 550 lbs 1 ft in 1 second So 39000 lbs x 2120 ft / (620 seconds x 550) is 242.46 HP I think I spot the error now - when I crunch the following: 39000x2120/550/231hp I get 650 seconds, not 6:50s. 650 seconds translates to 10:50s, which is a more reasonable time for the Ram. If the Ram did do it in 6:50s, then its average speed would be significantly higher, and we'd have to start the iterative process all over again... It takes a whole sack of flour to make a big biscuit.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

Guess I just assumed they paid by the pound. You know the same way as you sell your junk.

RE: Electronic Device Addiction

Use to remove your hat when entering a restaurant. Now the whole family wears them. Tank tops with hairy arm pits are my new turn off.

RE: Getting harder to aim Slimline SWM

When the roofers screws my DirecTv dish up I went up and found It wasn’t leveled I fixed that. It would show 95 but would quit when it got a not too heavy rain. Seeing how I fell off my roof on the last voyage to adjust it I called the pro. Took him quite awhile to get all adjustments correct. Had no outages, even in a snowstorm, sense then.

RE: When does a Pickup become a " Historical Vehicle"?

I have historical vehicle plates on my 1964 Thunderbird. You can get them when the vehicle is a certain age and falls under the usage rules required by the state (non DD, etc.). Their great, no more yearly tabs or any other fee's what so ever. https://i.imgur.com/V2YUNXf.jpg?1 One can even use old original plates: https://i.imgur.com/bXP7jzT.jpg?1 Won’t be long until your new neighbors coming from the state a little south of you put a stop to that.
