Sell my e30 cage, buy another headache [car] to drive and complain about how m50s have no power for the next year

Re: DIY radiator/intercooler sprayer, ON DA CHEEP

No idea, a quick google search only came up with aftermarket stuff and a used washer bottle for the system (which was $100) Regardless, I think the STI one is really meant for intermittent use too, for an intermittent setup I'd probably go with just the "misting kit" and some tubing. I'm gonna work ...

DIY radiator/intercooler sprayer, ON DA CHEEP

So while moping about my broken ass car yesterday I noticed something interesting that Dave had setup on his car - a radiator sprayer to help it cool down after runs. Using some sort of washer sprayers off of a Sienna or something to spray washer fluid onto the rad. I thought it was a pretty slick i...

Re: Dexter build thread

My only advice is make sure everything's good'n'tight. I had a problem with one of those autozone/wherever fuse blocks not having the best of internal connections. Every time I'd hit a bump with a fair amount/alot of throttle my ignition would cut out... so I got another box. Probably unnecessary, b...

Re: Dexter build thread

Lol yeah, well I did fix cars professionally for a while. Also, they work incredibly well when you're trying to strip wires on the car/under the dash... would've been perfect for what you were doing. But yeah, when I bought mine they were something like $35, $20 or so after the student discount. Now...

Re: Dexter build thread

You seem to be doing just fine. Do yourself a favor though... if the stripper I saw you use at the track last weekend is your regular one, you could seriously use an upgrade. I've got one of these: http://store.snapon.com/Strippers-Cutters-Crimpers-Blue-Point-174--Wire-Stripper-Stripmaster-174-Autom...

Re: DN 2014 rules discussion

not the hood, i meant fenders - no need for my hood to come off, that shit just looks ghetto. granted, so does a lack of fenders, but when you can't turn your wheels further than half lock without making full contact with the fenders, you gotta do what you gotta do. but like i said, i think i'll hav...

Re: DN 2014 rules discussion

You just have to HAVE the panels ON your car. I feel like I'm getting a lot of air quotes and winks from that statement. Is this a 'well what if they conveniently "fall off" after tech' kinda thing? lol. Actually, made a lot of progress, might have the [front] fenders done in time. I heard what hap...
