Great story above about a Northeastern family team with his daughter driving a Harley VTwin total 100% USA bike and going for the speed record^^


These are always good if you are a gearhead, Leno and crew always have many cool projects

Claire B Lang never quit non stopped yapping the whole time. Looked like Truex hit terminal B.S. and just started ignoring her..way too much info for Truex Jr to deal with. Can't blame him. :D

I was looking for this thread:

Here are some clips from Rallylegend '17. Group A, B, S. Group 1 and 2 all for a run of nostalgia.

For all engine lovers, I recommend to watch VisioRacer and subscribe to him on YT. He's a young guy, about my age, but man I'm guessing he's an engineer and posts videos on different engine configurations from racing engines, trains, motorcycles, street applications, naturally aspirated, turbocharged, unique and failed layouts. He does it all and is quite informative with his information, his English is improving but his knowledge is there. Here is his latest video:

Anyone else from the salt belt have experience undercoating their car? I've got a really low mileage sedan but it's nearly 10 years old now and rust doesn't seem to give a crap how much or little I drive. Seems like a relatively straight-forward process just knock the rust off then go at it with a bunch of spray paint. Wondering if anyone has done it and if so were there any unexpected problems and did it work?

I've only had new vehicles undercoated but a buddy of mine swears by something called Fluid Film for vehicles past that new stage. It's very inexpensive in comparison to regular undercoating and easy to self apply. They say that it stops existing rust on contact.

Just make sure you park it outside for a while after applying. You don't want it on your garage floor. Or driveway for that matter.

This is car porn from YouTuber Mustie1. He has a super cheap and simple DIY undercoating process that starts a bit after the 10:00 mark. Over the years I have watched him use the technique on many cars and his personal Toyota trucks and VW's. He lives in New Hampshire where the salt flie. BTW this VW was nothing but rust when he started so this is a super drastic rust repair /rust proofing

Some of you guys, me included, no doubt have a few Diecasts laying around. Some a whole lot more than a few. Some of you who are pretty handy might want to try this or if you like diecasts in general will find this interesting. BTW his channel is full of diecast how to customizing /restorations : (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnsnjDFdtULQ4ILpABYb9UQ
