  1. Fab it yourself, like the series was built on
  2. Didn't know not allowing aftermarket performance upgrades for free in a budget series meant you're in cahoots with someone.
  3. That's exactly what they're supposed to do. Sometimes you end up with happy accidents from unintended consequences, but VGs are definitely not designed to "kick the air up and off the car".
  4. Thunk-thunk thunk-thunk thunk-thunk just on and on and on. That road is flat and straight with no crazy weather to contend with. I don't understand how it's that bad.
  5. As always, wait for tech's official answer, but IIRC it's anything vertical is an airdam and anything horizontal is then a splitter.
  6. If you DQ for anything over OEM capacity, I don't know if there will be a car left in the field. Filling until it runs out the filler is already more than the factory spec, and that's without modifying vents.
  7. Like ETR said, 225s on 9s is a very common setup. That's what we ran on the MR2 and what a ton of Miata teams run. Just a tiny bit of stretch makes the tires perform really well.
  8. I'd just like to request that no one tries the second part of this statement. It's a very bad gun safety practice.
  9. One more: A couple months after buying his new bull, the darn thing went cross-eyed and was having a hard time seeing the cows. So, Ole called up the vet and had him come out to the ranch. The vet took one look at the bull and knew what to do. He went back to his pickup and grabbed a piece of hose. "Okay Ole, I'm going to put this hose up the bull's rear, and when I blow into it, his eyes will straighten. I need you to go up front and tell me when they're straight so we don't go too far." This sounded pretty weird to Ole, but sure enough the vet gave a mighty blow and it worked. He paid the vet and all was good. A couple months later, the bull went cross-eyed again. The bill last time was pretty high for something so simple, so Ole decided to call up Sven and do it himself. "Okay Sven. I'm going to do just vhat the vet did. I'll put this hose up da bull's rear, and vhen I blow his eyes will go straight. Go up front and watch so I know when to stop." So Sven went up front to watch, but no matter how hard Ole tried, he just couldn't blow hard enough to get the bull's eyes completely straight. "Vell Sven, I just can't seem to do it. Vhy don't we switch spots and see if that vorks better." So they swap spots, but before Sven goes to blow, he takes the hose and flips it around. "Sven, vhat da hell are you doin?", asked Ole. Sven replied, "Vell jeez Ole, you can't expect me to blow on that end after you just had it in your mouth!"
  10. Growing up in North Dakota, Ole and Lena jokes were really common because of all the German and Norwegian ancestry. That an the Vikings/Packers joke are making me feel at home. Ole was in need of a new bull for his cows, so he grabbed the local paper and started looking through the classified ads. Pretty soon he came across an ad for a nice Hereford bull for $4999, and the same man was selling a stock trailer for $1000! The only problem was that Ole was a little short on money and only had $5000. He thought maybe he could negotiate the amount down for a package deal. Ole yelled to his wife, Lena, "Yeahh Lena, Sven and I are going to run into town to buy a bull and trailer, but if I can't get both, den I'll need you to come and get us with da old trailer. I'll send you a telegram and letchu know how it goes." So Ole picks up Sven and they head into town to meet the farmer with his bull and trailer. The old farmer was a tough negotiator, and Ole couldn't get him to drop the prices at all. So he bought the bull and headed to the telegram office to send for Lena. Ole asked the telegram operator, "Hey dere, I need to send my vife a telegram to let her know ve need to be picked up, but I've only got a dollar left in my pocket. Is dat enough?" The operator replied, "It's enough to send one, but we charge a dollar a word, so it has to be pretty short." Ole agreed, and then sat in silence for a few minutes thinking what word he could send. Finally, he came up with his solution. "Okay, I vant you to send her da word 'comfortable.'" "Comfortable? Are you sure she's going to know what you need her to do?" "Oh yeah. She'll know. She reads real slow."
  11. Not my car, just a video posted on the forum a while back.
  12. That reminded me of this one from RA a few years ago. Same type of target fixation, though in my video the trailing driver at least braked.
  13. I'm all for specific rules. I also love backyard engineering. It's hard to tread the line of allowing clever modifications that anyone can do and still disallowing specialized machine work. This used to be done via the "can you do this by hand in your garage" rule, but that's not very specific and ripe for exploitation.
