  1. Ooh yeah those are fun. Took a tumble off my first bike back in 2007 and got an AC separation and a broken shoulder for good measure. Finding a comfortable sleep position was definitely a challenge. Really, though, the best part of the whole thing was my mom's reaction when I started talking about fixing the bike so I could get back to riding...
  2. You even picked the best color! The 17" square setup is the hot ticket for this car. Way better balanced, and tires are much, much cheaper. I've been really happy with the performance of my 335.
  3. Yeah, I mean, I looked at the video and didn't feel like it looked like 100MPH. But nothing else passed the sniff test for me - like what are the chances that @strengthrehab has never noticed the ridiculous inaccuracy of the speed, or that it worked fine before but just happened to go awry for this video? I sure as hell wouldn't start a crusade on those grounds...

    Well there's an idea I'll be stealing...not that I have that many cordless tools, but I definitely haven't figured a good place to store them. Putting them on a shelf in a cabinet just doesn't rub me the right way.
  5. 5 minutes? That's a pretty shitty pit stop time right there...

    The potentially-wasted space caused by those wall girts definitely annoys my OCD. I've just finished up building a Big Ass Shelving Unit in our hangar, and one of the reasons I built it custom instead of just buying pallet racks was so I could butt the shelves right against the wall, rather than having that 8" gap. Previously there were some short prefab steel shelves in this spot, short enough to go under the girt, but that annoyed me even more due to the wasted vertical space. This gives me at least twice as much storage, which matters since we don't have an attic for rarely-used stuff.
  7. You joke, but a friend of mine actually did that one time:
  8. ^ Same. I've run both MPSS and RE71Rs in Texas "winter" with no issues, back when the 335 was still on DD duty.

    NICE I'm of the opinion that shop lighting is like horsepower: the amount you need will always be about 110% of the current value.

    Bolt: "challenge accepted" I was working on my plane a while back, removing some control surfaces. Among the fasteners was a bolt that also had two carefully-hand-fitted spacers on it. When I removed the bolt, I marked each spacer, put them back on the bolt, and added the washer and nut to hold it all together. Then went back to the other series of bolts. It could not have been more than 15 minutes later that I went to collect that bolt with its spacers to group with the other bolts for storage. I couldn't find it. Searched all the workbenches multiple times, looked under everything,
  11. I don't have a lot to add here, other than being interested in the answers as well. On the topic of gut check, I suspect I can take it flat out, I just haven't grown the necessary balls yet. I've never braked there, but have definitely been a serial lifter. I've been working on making those lifts smaller and smaller.
  12. Your co-driver definitely didn't seem to have any problems with the throttle. Pretty sure I have some solid footage of him drifting the hell out of that thing under power right after passing me on more than one occasion. And 1:40s certainly sounds reasonable given the insane speed differential, he was cooking.
