    They had the 350Z that had a hodgepodge roots supercharger setup on it. Dan still has that car here in ABQ and it's a hilariously fun shitbox.

    This was surprisingly tricky to do, I couldn't capture exact measurements on the camera with only one hand to hold everything in place, but hopefully this does the trick.

    Interesting!

    Measuring the loose barrel from the extractor cut, my factory TAC-14's original barrel is just barely under 14 1/16" Total length. The AIM Surplus sourced barrel is 14 1/16" on the...

    I ordered one as well, looks just like Lon's. Scuffs on the finish but the bore is clean and bright. Some minor dings on the leading edge of the crown that are consistent with being rested on the...

    Good riddance.



    That's classified for some pretty obvious reasons.

    I fear the fallout from a ban like this would make us wish for problems so simple as closing businesses, and people unemployed.

    Yeah most of the SC's I pulled out of Previas had neglected SC oil. In the early-mid 00's it wasn't quite so bad but the rotors were pretty much toast by the time I gave that game up in ~2010 or so. ...

    IME the fees for swapping the lease will exceed any savings for MPG in all but the most extreme cases. If she's only commuting one week a month and she's already got a solid reliable 37mpg vehicle,...

    Yes, I have! I made a decent side hustle in the 2000's at pick-a-part and u-pull style junkyards by pulling the superchargers off of the '95-97 models that were so equipped. Turns out the Ogura SC14...

    Moved the 300ZX TT out of the way to do some organization and cleanup. Celica All-Trac is a '90 that needs a rebuilt turbo and other sat-around-too-long stuff. 3000GT is getting a timing belt (fun...

    Based on my own mixed experience between Colt and FN contract military guns (M4's, M4A1's, M16A2's, and a handful of A4's) and the civilian market guns they offer (LE6920's, FN-15's SRP's etc) I'd...

    Seeing as the whole thing is an anachronism of sorts, I'd happily run a TA11 on a BAR if the mounting options worked for it. It'd be interesting to see how it does with really good glass at long...

    Fair point about Glock mags.

    I've been wondering as well if a quick spot weld would just solve that problem forever. I don't anticipate I'd ever use the takedown feature anyway.

    Depends on the model year. For something in the 2014 and earlier range, I'd go CR-V all day every day. But Honda's early implementations of the CVT transmissions starting with the 2015 or so in those...
