      I had a 2006 Taco for 10 years and never changed the brake pads even once, so I’m not going to say you need discs on the back. The VVT gives excellent engine braking, so unless you’re carrying...

      Sorry I can’t remember the ratio of back:front replacements but it was at least once a year, and this compared to my 2006 Tacoma that I had for more than ten years and never changed the brakes once! ...

      But what influence will the upcoming US election have on “his” decision? We know from the past that there’s nothing quite like the threat of a war to help raise the fear factor of the electorate in...

      I think they’ll get a rude awakening when they try to recover from this game the way they could in the past—with the global economy slowing, alternate energy improving etc., plus Vlad the Impaler is...

      You can’t just look at the price...you need to know the real volume x real cost of production to know the revenue they need as a government...and there’s no way of knowing either of those things.

      You’re dreaming if you think the Saudis are losing money at $20/bbl. They’re not making as much as they could be but their costs are about 10% of ours despite what you read. Pumping? They don’t...

      I agree...keep the pictures coming!

      BTW, if you have a Caterpillar or John Deere construction dealer nearby, you can see if they have an inclinometer for you. They usually have them for the motor...

      Stories like this confirm my belief that buying a Tesla or any other BEV would be like buying a Motorola brick phone...technology changes so fast the car makers are struggling to pawn off their old...

      I can’t elaborate, but I will just say it will be the height of irony if they drop the show to protect their image—you have no idea how dirty their hands are.
      Speaking of dirty, I think diesels will...

      I prefer the look of a 15” wheel with some meat to the tires. Mistakes? Like nobody moves, nobody gets hurt? Guess you better go automatic too because you wouldn’t want to screw up a double clutch...

      Some of us just like the old steel wheels...I’m not a fan of the supposed sophistication that moves things away from skill and more toward button pushing.

      Pretty cool! I see two turbos per side on it but maybe he has an exhaust splitter so he run through two or four if he wants. Reminds me of some of the military Detroit diesels where they had two...

      My earlier comments still stand. In addition, during braking your design forces all braking energy from all four wheels to be transferred through the rear suspension connections, whereas with the...

      Of course there is push pull on the suspension, what do you think the rear axle is attached to? You’re missing my point I think. Draw yourself a picture from the side with the receiver end higher...

      I think I Understand what you’re trying to do, but I think you’d be creating some geometry issues with the rear suspension unless it was designed with your hitch in mind in the first place. As the...
