    Trailer broken into twice in a week

    Sorry to hear this. One reason to scribe tools with identifying markers... a 130db siren would work wired to a battery triggered when it opens without selecting/hitting the disable. or glitter bomb them with some glue sprayed first. Then follow the trail of glitter. Last option, put a tracker into one of the tools as bait and track it with the wps notified.

    FS: 17 x 7.5” Alloy wheels 5x120 et 41

    +41 it turns out.Nothing crazy, enough to make it sit right as you can see.
  9. TThanks. There price on hawk convinced me to buy a set. Not much really convincing me to spend otherwise on auto stuff. BMW owners.... if these fit there a hell of a deal (Thinking if you Noel) https://www.apexraceparts.com/wheels/bmw-wheels/19x10-et25-apex-ps-7-wheel.html

    Sports car recommendations

    Big hail auction was last Saturday. Matrix xrs - 1k. Lots of potentially good buys, some stupid over priced ones too.

    Sports car recommendations

    To do this reliably as been said before “the answer is always miata”. The bmw may have more power and options, but will be much more to maintain and less reliable in the long run. Also the consumables on the miata will be much cheaper (tires and pads) 15k won’t get you the s2000 unless it’s been poorly modded or has a history.
  13. I have to try making this day. Here’s to hoping stars align....
  14. I was updating chris as I kept hitting refresh on the live results! Great tight battle, looking forward to monitoring your progress tomorrow. Great job Mark and Bridget, best result yet. Glad everyone had fun, hope everyone bought or had rain gear.
  15. As long as they post up some videos of top drivers..... It never will be identical but still a definite advantage. Did you attend?
  16. With an annual membership you could have still held it I can’t believe it’s been that long, I’m feeling old.

    Event 10 at Gimil

    Is that just a Subaru thing? Every modded Subaru north of 400 hp I know has blown up. Hope the bill can be kept reasonable. Otherwise just swap a LS in.

    Custom alignment shop thread?

    Curtis works kitty corner from this location. May just be closing the Selkirk shop perhaps.
  19. With the corvette it may be tougher to strap over the wheels. But if you do consider going that way I have a set of straps you can borrow for nationals. There are rail clips I’ve seen that work nice for adjusting the tie distance on trailers equipped with the track. @Jim Eh. May know where to get the tie downs you speak of, but I’d assume any trailer store, maybe even princess auto.
  20. Well the gaskets on the oil filter housing are notorious on the BMW’s. But that would show as milky oil and/or discolored coolant only. I think your looking at a head gasket. A compression and leakdown test can tell for sure.
  21. There’s vacuum/negative pressure in the cylinder when lifting out to shift. It’s probably pulling the coolant in then. You will probably be getting bubbles in the coolant under load.
  22. Oil from the head gasket leak wouldn’t present with a compression tester unless the leak was from oil passage to the combustion chamber. Since it’s visible it’s external which is a pain. Usually it’s the high pressure oil passage that runs up the side of the block (many motors) into the head that leaks between the passage and external world. It’s a leak that is dreadful but not that common. I’d check seals and other sources as testing this is impossible. I’d thoroughly clean the area and use dye and a UV light to trace it. Did you put in a high volume oil pump or shim/regear the stock one? I have a compression tester your welcome to borrow

    Seeking Tire Advice

    Having several gauges to cross check and a pyrometer would help greatly. I agree with Corey about the tire folding over on itself due to under inflation. When the tire is loaded the outside comes in, the inside may roll far enough for the sidewall to roll up/ pinch and ripple/rub causing the irregular wear? I’ve only see that sort of symptom on under inflated implement tires (lawn tractor tires at 10psi while horsing around) a gopro in slowmo under there could perhaps catch this... I was not there tim, no body damage I hope.
  24. Odd that carts get counted seperate. My bad, I figured a few cancellations already went through. If you want to bring your "a game" you stay away from the parties, just go downtown and get a nice dinner and turn in. Nothing nicer then a 6:30am course walk in a cool summer breeze.
