    Friggin oil at 117.00!

    scottm, i'm aware it takes alot of energy to produce hydrogen, compress it, etc. The benefit i see, is unlike an electric car, you can still fill up at a station. It takes time to charge batteries, so you can't just stop and fill up, if your batteries run out of life, you're stuck waiting for...

    Friggin oil at 117.00!

    I haven't looked into it much, but the way i read it, Hydrogen is the primary source of fuel in these cars. Although, $600 a mo is pretty steep, i would have to believe this will come down as production increases. I've heard of this technology for awhile, just takes the demand to make it...

    Who Makes the Best Zip Ties?

    Thanks for the response. The High-Temp ties are the ones I will be looking into, desert heat + engine heat = brittle straps. It is always good to know who has the best. BTW I used to use the large ties at work, similar to what the cops use, and found they're also good for strapping to a...

    Gov'mt says how to build hot rods...

    Fabricator, don't get me wrong, it was just for the sake of argument. I am aware that there are by-products of castor and castor curves. Im sure anyone that builds a high performance straight axle street rod knows all about it. In a 4-bar setup as a true parallelogram, how would you obtain...

    Gov'mt says how to build hot rods...

    Imaginative interpretation (like used in our sport) would tell me that without any noted guideline of where distance between centers is measured (since the dimension shown on the diagram would vary with suspension travel anyway) I could build a "four bar" suspension with pivot points spaced 4.5"...

    The Dyno Shop

    Coilover Spacers for Tundra?

    Thanks for the help. I will look into the Donahoe setup and the diff spacer. I wouldnt have known Donahoe sold those if I hadnt of asked here, ive checked the dr website before and didnt see them! Eventually, when I find some money, its getting spent on coilovers and upper arms. Was also...

    Coilover Spacers for Tundra?

    I recently purchased a Tundra and have looked into leveling the front end. Even though the truck is too soft in the front, It rides real nice and it will be kept a street truck. I wanted to know if anyone has experience with the cheap lift spacers. There are some that mount the entire coilover...

    What kind of Delrin Acetal

    The prices I quoted were off a website. K-mac-plastics I would end up buying it locally anyway but I was just getting all my info off the site. I know there are other types/brands of acetals as well, I think Delrin is a Dupont name? Thats why I want input from people who have used it or...

    Radiator Problems.

    I had the same problem on my s10 and fixed it by tightening the flanged nut that sits against the radiator. It is a compression type fitting that becomes loose but if your radiator is cracked, good luck.

    disk brake conv.

    I am swapping out the stock rearend out of my sonoma for one out of a 4wd blazer with factory disk brakes. I am sure both trucks have the same booster and M/C but are the proportioning valves disk/drum specific? I am not sure if one brake setup requires more pressure than the other or if I can...

    ProComp

    Thats probably a bad word but I wanted to know if anybody had any comments on the MX6 shock. They are monotube shocks like the Bilsteins and reb.&comp. are adjusted in parallel. Not interested in building a race truck off them but figure they might be alot better than the Rancho 9000's.?.
