Thread jack, back to cars. Dave and Busters has a Ferrari simulator with everything listed for about a dollar per play. They can change the settings for you. Just eat some acid and pretend you are driving the ultimate race machine... k drunk

I just found out that the Rolex series is coming to Kansas Speedway next August. I know that I'm going for sure.

I love how KC trends posted a picture of a Ferrari 458 with gangster wheels then when people started hating Chad the owner gets on there and starts calling people annoying and telling them to get the **** out and whatever else. I thought I liked Chad and respected him as a business owner but damn how do you own a business and talk to customers like that whether they really customers buying anything or not. Not a fan at all to how he reacted to the situation.

Yeah I just saw that Chad removed a whole bunch of the posts and apologized for how he acted still doesn't matter, he's been a business owner long enough he should know how to act.

Yeah, welcome to the aftermarket car industry. Shop owners can be really weird sometimes. There was a porsche shop in town that went out of business after their owner decided he didn't care too much about doing just normal work. He wanted to do interesting stuff, like build up his personal 996 turbo.

Lol i love Stephen, imagine auto, i know him really well. That 996 was bad ass with a ton of one off parts. From speaking with him about it numerous times apperently his parnter screwed him over.

Yeah, that's the place. I couldn't remember any names. I wasn't too involved since I was really little at the time, but I think I can remember them not being too excited to work on just a little boxster.

Thats for sure. He wanted to do the custom one off stuff and he was damn good at it. Problem was that the market just isnt that strong around here for that type of thing.

Anyone have a RTAB tool I can borrow? I'm looking at replacing these today or tomorrow. I can essentially buy it from you and 'return' it as long as it is returned in the same condition borrowed (I know how borrowing tools go, i've lost a few due to this).

Yeah I think kevin (Slyt1pes or whatever) lends one out.

Mine were so badly worn that apparently the pretty much fell out. (according to Kendel)

I've got a the tool from a buddy but I'm supposed to help him do his RTAB's on his M3 sometime soon. When do you plan on doing yours? Maybe we can knock them both out the same day. I've got to replace the bolt on his because it stripped out when I was using it on my 330.

if someone could loan me one of the MIS RTIB tools for a day it would be much appreciated. i'll buy you some beer, pay a nominal sum, whatever. the tool i borrowed isn't quite the same design and doesn't work unless i chisel away the outer metal ring....which is a PITA. i'll pobably just finish this one and leave the other side until i get the right tool.


EDIT; nevermind....just decided to go at it with pry bars, chisels, and hammers. all done.

If you pause the video at 0:51, you can see two things.

1. The tire marks on the ground are not only from the rear tires. You can see where one mark lines up with the other one. That truck WAS in 4x4 more until...

2. If you look very closely, the front to tires are towed in. Looks like that truck go broken by a just a little VW. Grip wasn't the limiting factor here, drivelines were. And the Chevy's failed.

If you listen at 0:38 you can hear something in the front of the truck break pretty clearly, then the truck starts to be pulled backwards by the VW.

From 0:04-0:06 the driver of the chevy actually says "I'm gonna put it in.... lockin it in...." which if he finished the sentence would probably mean locking it in 4x4 mode.

Seen that video and all the dipshits posting about it.

Tug-o-wars are never decided by anything but traction. Look up duramax truck pulls and you will see they all break the front end due to the IFS and improper lifts. Also, the toureg stands on the brakes till the duraturd broke traction then drove off with it, not rocket science there.

My truck might have more weight and power, but I bet an auto car with sticky race tires could drive off with me (given 2wd vs 2wd).
