    Army Lt. traffic stop

    I've been pulled over many times in my time, having a right led foot. Every time the LEO's first sentence was, do you know why I pulled you over for? Pretty simple isn't it. My answer always was, I have no clue officer, haha. They always told me what I was pulled over for!

    Army Lt. traffic stop

    Moral of this story, don't wear seatbelts while getting pulled over. it could cause death if trying to unbuckle when cops ordering you to get out of the car 🤔 . No seatbelt could cost a few bucks in fines but make it easier to comply and get out of the car when asked by the cops. With all...

    Amazon stiffed me when tried to cancel an order

    ^^^ I had another order prior to this with Amazon. It showed they had the part in stock. Placed the order and got charged on my Visa, pronto. Few days later, they said it was back ordered and there will be a delay. Two weeks later, got the memo, we're very sorry it may take even longer to get...

    Amazon stiffed me when tried to cancel an order

    I'm a prime member with Amazon. Never had an issue canceling an order before this Covid BS. I've ordered set of coils for my car last month. Waited two weeks and decided to get the part locally, which I did. When trying to cancel the order with Amazon, they re-directed me to tech support that I...

    Old Stereo Speakers

    In the 70, friend and me built and sold speakers using Marsland Linear speakers with or without crossovers. Marsland speakers were built in Toronto Canada, Undoubtedly, one of the best speakers at the time, unfortunately Japanese manufacturers killed them and the factory closed for good. Friend...

    Old Stereo Speakers

    Grundig made some high quality product. Grundig radio receivers were the most popular in Europe ahead of Siemens and others. I still keep looking to find their portable shortwave radios. They were the highest quality back in the 70's. There was a specialty shop in Vancouver selling them. Top...

    Question about ceramic coating turning dull on headers.

    High there. Thanks for all the replies. Compression good across all four cylinders. We're going out to the track again today and I'll have the infrared checker with us. We'll have sensors installed in the bungs for EGT once the car dialed in. Car pulls great all the way the powerband. Like said...

    Question about ceramic coating turning dull on headers.

    I first thought lean condition but all plugs show tan color. The engine runs on a two barrel Weber, simplest carburator ever to set up. Car was jetted for sea level originally to run Mission Raceway. We are about 1200 feet above sea level so it would run richer rather than lean. Like...

    Question about ceramic coating turning dull on headers.

    My son had his Formula 2000 exhaust header ceramic coated and it seems only #1 pipe discolored .Are they all going to turn dull after a short while? I've seen ceramic coated headers before, they looked like satin finish, Trying to attach picture. Resized to 718kb already but doesn't upload...

    Tony Kart G0-Karting at Kartplex Oliver BC

    Just came home from the track. First time this year. My wrists needed break in between runs. Both mine and my son's kart ran fantastic. On to try fixing the starter now. hopefully epoxy will hold the solenoid contacts intact. The bakelite part is cracked and the post is a bit loose. It's a Ford...
