RE: Garrett turbo files for bankruptcy

IMHO...screwed by corporate management (that bought them) Investors got one new Garrett share for every 10 Honeywell shares they owned. No one bought them. Looks like it was just done to get out from under the asbestos liability. So will the liability go back to Honeywell if Garrett goes bust?

RE: Garrett turbo files for bankruptcy

Looks like Honeywell used them to dump a bunch of debt and asbestos liabilities. Vulture capitalism. Garrett Files Suit Wonder how Honeywell convinced people to accept shares in this scam.

RE: PRICE DROPS coming on new GM small diesels

Had a read on the GM engine and it looks really interesting. One thing did give me a pause. The belt for the variable flow oil pump has to be changed every 150,000 miles. Changing it requires removing the transmission as well as the transfer case on 4WD's. Might be an issue for high mileage drivers. Thnx for posting that, no way in H Id ever consider buying such loony design. I don't know, 150K is a lot of miles for me. I'd also want to know what changing it would cost. Might not be a deal breaker if I really liked the truck.

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

I use a VPN. The VPN app encrypts your information before it leaves your computer so it doesn't matter who's wifi you are using.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

Tesla stock down 21% today, down 34% this month. Competition is on the way, VW's first MEB platform cars are coming out in the new year and look like they could provide some real competition for the 3 and Y. The looks of the ID3 is kinda cool. I’m not sure why they decided not to sell it on this side of the pond. The ID4 and Audi Q4 e-tron SUV's and e-tron Sportback are due out next year in North America.. The MEB platform has high floor and low floor configurations which allow it to be used for sedans and SUV's. I think the ID4 will find a market. Checks a lot of boxes for the medium sized SUV bunch including a towing capacity. Looking forward to seeing it. As long as you aren't towing very far.

"using both batteries and hydrogen fuel cells..." He's a hybrid, like the Toyota fuel cell powered Kenworth that has been hauling containers out of Long Beach CA for years... Fuel cell vehicles are electric, They convert hydrogen directly into electricity, the only byproduct is water..

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Thank You I wish statistics could be released that provides percentage lethality of the 70-79.5 age group without underlying risks of morbidity. Old age increases the risk of morbidity.

RE: 4 maybe 5 weeks....

Muncho Lake is beautiful if you go that way, but stay away from the logging and mining trucks. Despite the economic positives, seeing that destruction will ruin your trip. As a retired airline pilot who spent a lot of time flying up and down the coast between Vancouver and California, I can assure you that there are lots of clear cuts in Washington and Oregon.

RE: Tesla crash (2 years ago but in news today)

Aircraft autopilots have been around for over seventy years and can be depended on to operate within their design parameters. They have to be certified by the FAA and other national aviation authorities and maintained according to a schedule. Pilots are trained in their use and use established procedures when using them. Vehicle automatic driving is still experimental and drivers receive none of those things when they buy a new car. How many people even read their operating manual when they buy a new car.

RE: Tesla crash (2 years ago but in news today)

Maybe it would be a good idea if Tesla stopped calling it an autopilot. They say it is just driver assist but the name suggests otherwise.

RE: Tailgate

I don't know that I've ever seen a factory lock on a tailgate, but I'm not up on the latest models. Mine came with one.

RE: Tested your LP detector lately?

False alarm or end of life chirp? Mine started chirping just short of the expiration date on the detector. And I replaced it immediately. X2

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Japan is a series of Islands. They wore masks. They have had much better results than North America. So, to protect others, I wear a mask. I worked in Japan for several years during the 90's and mask wearing in public was quite common.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Sitting here watching a Super League rugby match from Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand with 34,000 people in the stands. This happened today. New Zealand is an island so it's a little easier to eradicate an infectious disease and maintain that status. But they took active measures testing, isolating infected individuals and pretty quickly dealt with this disease. It can be done. Ya, I’m just envious.

RE: those with boats

Our grand daughters have been out alone on EZ skis at three years old and on tubes with adults even younger. Keep the speed down and don't scare them and they love it. Tubing isn't a success for our older grand kids unless you can get them off.
