    1. Mk2 Golf - SCCA HP, 1 step forward, 2 steps back...

      Had some decent initial outings with the Golf at Gateway and Blackhawk.

      Didn't break, didn't crash, and made the car faster each time, but was constantly fighting a soft top end power problem -...

      Update -
      As I expected I had to replace the clutch at 55k miles. I was getting clutch slip in 3rd-4th-5th gears if I ever asked for high torque on the highway. I went with the South Bend stage 2...

      1. That's like saying that Honda is a Jet company. Tesla is most certainly a car company. And a battery company. And a solar roof company.
      2. Batteries don't equal renewable energy.
      3. Tesla does...

      Apparently not. It seems it was some sort of resonance with the dual mass flywheel. I just replaced the clutch with a South Bend Stage 2 Daily, which includes a single mass flywheel. The dual mass...

      I don't know about a strong case regarding AP.
      Definitely a biased article, that uses some real data to make a point about repair costs, and then a lot of speculation and opinion (much of which...

      Some basics, which you may already know, but just getting them out there first.

      Don't over lower the front. The roll center will move below the track surface and you will get terrible...

      Woah.
      So rational.

      Thanks fellas.

      I punted and bought one at the dealer.

      If what they wanted was a "Tesla" based on a Model S expectation, they won't be getting anything in the target price range.
      If they wanted a real world functional EV with >200mi range, they may well...

      The very simple version -

      Higher car prices have made sales volumes increasingly dependent on leasing.
      Leasing affordability is very dependent on used car values.
      The combination of a stagnant...

      Sorry - I didn't explicitly state my point. Both articles are PR spin.
      I would not consider either source to be a provider of balanced, factual journalism.

      OK. Here is a published counterpoint.

      Isn't the UAW trying to organize this facility?
      It does not take much imagination to connect the publishing of this article with that effort.

      Great point about available resources, but with TaaS the fleet can also shrink dramatically.
    16. Freeze plug on the front side of the motor (cam pully side)

      Anyone know what size the freeze plug behind the cam belt tensioner is?

      Never seen one not there, but its not there on my new head, and I need a replacement.

      thanks

      Its not a deduction. Its a tax credit. It is taken off the bottom line "what you owe" on your tax form.
      If you already paid more into the system than "what you owe" you get the difference refunded....

      Right - you can see it clearly in the photos I posted. The barb on top of the pump is smaller than the one on the VW assembly. I used a hose that is slightly large for the pump, and over-stretched it...
