      That's what I planned on doing. I bought a 5 liter bottle of transmission fluid, should be plenty for a drain and refill type of job. The "kits" that you can buy only include 3 liters.

      Ha, I was definitely not planning on doing multiple fluid changes. I was going to do it like an oil change. Wait for the car to cool enough to crawl under it, drain the fluid, drop the pan, change...

      Very much so! That's awesome. Thanks! Fluid dynamics is something I know absolutely nothing about. However polar interactions are more my style :)

      As for someone saying something about heat......

      There is still an atmosphere between those water droplets, which will, in fact, reflect the lower wavelength light much more so than the yellow light. Yes, the water reflects all wavelengths, but if...

      I'm a chemist, please enlighten me, I honestly want to know now. I know that clutches aren't simply metal plates. Another analogy I think of is this. Drag a paper towel across a surface. Now wet it...

      I'm confused by this picture. Are you superimposing the "before" picture above the "after" picture? Is that why we see 4 different headlights? Or is it an artifact of the camera?

      If you are, then...

      I'll agree with you here, but it doesn't provide "friction" in a way that most people would think. I would think of the fluid more as a "glue". Think of two glass sheets with water between them, kind...

      I'm well aware TCL is not VWVortex. I posted it here for a reason. Most VW fanboys would just say "Replace it with a manual!" As for Optimus. You may have had a bad experience, but there are quite a...

      Thank you for this!

      Look at this picture.


      You can obviously see the bottom picture (after) is very much overexposed as compared to the top (before) picture.

      As for the comparison? It's not...

      Yeah that was another issue I thought of, but I couldn't think of anything else in the transmission that would require friction, so I used it more as a "collective" term.
    12. You guys are great. Thanks for the info.

    13. Automatic Transmission Flush "Old Wives Tales"

      I know we have an AT forum, it doesn't get a lot of action, for somewhat obvious reasons.

      Anyway, I have an old 95 A6 Quatto (although this could apply to most "old" AT cars). I'm sure everyone...

      I think both parties are in the wrong here. The customer is stupid for being power greedy. He should have settled for his stage one build and made it work instead of throwing money in their...

      Side impact looks fine, but for the frontal impact the head hit the steering wheel THROUGH the airbag? Seems like an awful design. Isn't that what... you know... the seat belt AND airbag are designed...

      Read it again, his opinion is that lowering a car in Detroit is pointless because of potholes and hazards brought about by having a lower car. It is also pointless because of the lack of fun roads....

      I deem your choice of suspension acceptable. I lived in PA for most of my life, potholes suck. MT=better roads and lots of straights to stretch the legs and curves to test the tires.

      Meh, looks very nicely done but... Rados are old cars, the green went with that look, bright as hell LEDs throw it off. I could understand MAYBE if you're replacing all of the interior lighting in...

      Bone Stock? No. If anyone put OEM suspension back on a corrado it'd be a crime. (They rode REALLY high back when they were new.) They look exponentially better with a 1-1.75 inch drop from stock....

      I may still go through this process. It's not that big of a deal, all of those things are easy to get to. I've had the interior of that car apart so many times I can pretty much strip the entire...
