  • Awesome! I still look forward to the day I get to meet @aspieRommel in person. And I will cover a day at the races, fully on me. Except for the hookers and beer.
  • That's how I learned to fix cars. I think it is how most people learn. The big advantage now that wasn't available when I was young, is that now you can YouTube about anything and watch it on your tablet as you go.
  • Get my cone honed more often. Mebs, mebs!
  • Mele Kalikimaka.
  • @drasnor said: @Mt_Goat said: @drasnor, Talk to some local machine shops. They could machine one out of most materials of your choice on a Bridgeport. You could save some cost by getting the dimensions and draw it up yourself. If yo…
  • @drasnor, Talk to some local machine shops. They could machine one out of most materials of your choice on a Bridgeport. You could save some cost by getting the dimensions and draw it up yourself. If you really feel inclined you could write a CNC pr…
  • I got the Scout 1.1 and was bad as I ordered a ZYX R-50 Bloom 2 MC to be set up on it upon arrival. Even i am saying ouch on this one. But I feel it will be worth it. All though I spent more than I wanted, this combination still comes in at less tha…
  • My Denon DP2000 bit the dust a couple weeks ago. So I just replaced it with a vintage factory sealed NIB Denon DP62L I found on fleabay. I will be moving the MC104 to it today. I also want to dive into a new TT. So far I want a VPI Classic but they …
  • In addition to what @Kwitko mentioned, no Pink Floyd collection is complete without "Meddle". Yes "Fragile" and Alice Cooper are essential must haves as well.
  • I agree @Cliff_Forster, because by the time the late 70's rolled around anybody who was into quality systems was switching to direct drive.
  • Oooooohhhhh! Just found a real super duper killer deal!!!! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DUER2S6/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1477102051&sr=8-9&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=denon+turntable
  • I personally would go with a Denon DP300F. Denon has been making quality audiophile disk spinners since the beginning of time. Almost everything they produce is high quality. Then add an Ortofon OM5e cartridge. I may sound opinionated but I have bee…
  • I never thought it while looking at the latest batch on my screen but now after seeing them in this thread is making me wonder. Is my head full of helium or are these really pro looking? I'm not petting myself but it just hit me.
  • IMHO, RTO is risky at best. The contracts are generally shady and usually don't favor the lessor/buyer. As has been stated by others so far, I would rent since you haven't been in the housing market so far. First I think you need to get out on your …
  • @Sonorous said: Not sure what it is about your photography of race cars, but you seem to be capable of capturing more color in your photos than I think I have ever seen. Colors really seem to pop out at me. Maybe it's in my head, but it doesn't s…
  • @primesuspect said: I think the "clutter" in this case adds to the ambience and immersion of the photos. I really get a sense of being there; the rumble, the smell, the crowd. You're definitely improving, Larry Some is good and adds as y…
  • @Ryder said: Dem boots! {deeeeeep breath} I love the smell of nitro in the morning! I totally agree! The only thing that makes it better is after it swirls with liquified rubber and brats. Dem boots are on my desktop.
  • Are my efforts getting any better? The biggest problem with taking pics at the drag races is all the clutter. It is next to impossible to get away from. These are from Indy on Labor Day. I know I was going to take @aspieRommel until I had to handle…
  • Well, it appears that you have survived. And more importantly you have not forgotten how to relate.
  • @Linc said: @pigflipper said: I just don't film it and post it all over the internet. Oh yeah? That all but brings a tear to those who have been around that long!
  • @pigflipper said: Tis the season folks .....Here in Tallahassee we are expecting large scale power outages, flooding, and drunk college kids doing stupid shit. Haven't had a direct hit by 74+ mph sustained winds in 31 years; this could be really …
  • Just me, but I have a feeling you would end up smelling like a brewery for a while. Your skin would soak up the beer and retain a certain amount which I don't think would smell very good as old beer just stinks.
  • Where is the entry forms for the shopping spree after the Olympics are over? I would say Redits estimate is way short.
  • @Levex said: Adulting is way less fun than being a kid. I'd take homework and chores over paying bills any day. And that thought was exactly what was my "ah ha" moment of realizing adulthood. It was kind of a weird melecolie kind of momen…
  • @primesuspect said: I seriously cannot wrap my head around how quickly this game has changed my city. No hyperbole: This game is revolutionary. I was out tonight all over downtown Detroit and the riverfront. There were hundreds of people …
