    MCM (might car mods) added a new show - well worth watching.

    Those guys build some cool stuff! I have a thing for their weird MIrra awd turbo build.

            way cool, I'm still digesting how he made those exhaust manifolds - I like the strength they would have.

              That's not the first time I've seen them made that way but I too was impressed with the strength. It was around 2012 I think that I first saw a manifold made that way.

              Another thing that a different part of the world tackles differently!

                    Not sure on how they set the pinion angle, what about the difference in weight between the two third members?

                      why would the pinion weight difference matter? a bit better shock to control the unsprung weight and life is good. Pinion angle is easy, put the car back on the ground without the saddles welded on, check the angle of the transmission and set the angle of the differential to mirror it...

                      why do they love porn music?

                            I like it. I REALLY like the lack of fake drama/deadline BS. The "porn music" is a small price to pay.

                              SBG, I'll see your BangSail and raise you a Skid Factory!

                              "Porn Music" I don't pay that much attention to the music they put with it, just sounds like a guitar to me!
