    Rough last week on track, went for a little slide. Whoops. Still a good time at least.

    I don't get it, why do you hate internal combustion so much? What's gotten into you?
    Those political figureheads only care about themself, they claim what they do is best for us, what they actually do is to satisfy their greed. Their(Big Brother and Big Tech) goal is to dominate us, not to make us live better.

    And no, I'm not an ICE simp.

    Some people are just like that. I'd probably get banned if I went into the reasons, because that's how this place works, but suffice it to say, there are a lot of those people out there on "car enthusiast" forums.

    I'm actually neutral towards ICEV/EV. In terms of car enthusiasts some may prefer one over the other, that's OK since it's a personal preference.
    Hatred, however, is not OK. For example, someone prefer apples over oranges, he/she shouldn't feel ":cool:" when he/she heard that an orange farm was destroyed by tornado.
    Also I'm not going to discuss politics since it's not allowed on this forum, I only want to say that anything, if politicized, will become shady.

    And also that literally everything is politicized anymore, which is why I've come to despise "no politics" rules on forums no matter how well-intentioned. No one's going to bother reporting someone they agree with, so it just becomes a tool of opinion policing by default, even if the mods don't have biases of their own (which they almost always do).

    Always good posts from you on this forum. What keeps you coming back here?
    The other day I was riding my old Honda CRF80. For years this bike has had drivability problems. It would intermittently run dead rich to the point it floods, fowls the spark plug, then won't run.
    Recently I took the carb apart, made some adjustments to the needle and float. Runs much better now, really rips in the top end. Still has some problems with high idle/rev hang.
    Then while standing still I dropped it and myself into the ditch. That caused it to flood and it wouldn't run for a bit.

    Right, my bad. I momentarily forgot that everything is supposed to be happy sunshine and lollipops.

    Except ICE, speed, and fun. Those you may despise freely.

    Who don't you mind making angry?

    early ones only went as low as 24hp (which is 18 KW), but by 1970 as far as i know the 1200 was the smallest offered option, which made something like 36 hp (27 KW).
    so unless it's in some weird unit like CV, i'm not sure what's going on there.

    VAG cars depend some models can be rather good and last a long time the diffrence between a VAG car and a Toyota is that you have to maintain them more but if you look after them they look after you.

    Just put my rebuilt transmission into my car and it doesn't work at all. Now my car is stranded in the road.
    Yeah...I think I'm gonna get drunk instead.
