Re: Being Perma Banned

I bolted out of bed this morning, foregoing my usual routine of..local news...CBC news and the latest photo op of Justin Trudeau, then CNN and the latest in the Trump Show..thundering to my computer to make sure I was ON. It took a few seconds to wake my computer up from it's dream of light speed ch...

Re: missed message

That's funny, as I was at Specialty yesterday and they said it was likely the TOYOTA guys!

We had a battle for some years with our Nissan's VS Toyota.

We like you U.S. guys so no worries there!

Re: L20 turbo

But...the kits sold here came with NO boost control and as most guys opened up the exhaust...it was "to the moon Ralph!" That was at least my experience with guys I ran into, plus, you mention water injection, no one did that that I was aware of. In most cases here, guys were hitting 20 PSI, so it d...

Re: missed message

Well, it works for me!!! Thanks guys!

Are all you who were banned ok? I'm ok now!

24 hours with no REALM, that was crazy, I lost interest in the rest of the World, lost a day wandering aimlessly in my house, did not even want to watch the other World news.

The proven shot gun defense.... I load my shotgun with: first shot SSG, then a rifled slug, then SSG, then rifled slug, then THREE SSG. You are right about being calm....hope I'm never surprised in the bush, but, I try to be ready when we have to transit through some thicker sections of trail. In al...

Monday Ramblings

Morning World! In June coming up, I will be heading back into the land of grizzly bears. As Saturday was a horrible rainy day, I thought that would be a good time to grab a couple of things from our local BIG box outdoor store. One of the things was to update my bear spray, as they do have a bit of ...

Re: L20 turbo

I could write for hours on this one. Problem with early 510 turbo kits was mainly NO boost control, and, by the 80's 98 octane fuel was gone. Stock head gaskets never survived much boost PERIOD! "O" ringing the block is the only solution. The Crown Mfg/Rajay turbo kits was one of the worst, it came ...

Re: FORT CASEY REDUX 2019

I remember you fueled up in Oak Harbour on the way back.. Dean did also. What I cannot believe is that it is 2 years since we did that run! We went to Bromley Rock last year!

FORT CASEY REDUX 2019

Morning World! Time to plan our first drive of the season. I am thinking the weekend of June 8/9th. That weekend has nothing going on for the most part, so Border traffic in the afternoon should not be too bad, cross back at Aldergrove again. It is also free parking day at the park. Bring some U.S. ...

Re: #4G63510 Suspension

We use that trick on our mountain bike shocks. It is only good if you know or can see the zap and if it has hit the final bump rubber.

I'm with Duke, tires first.....then see what is going on.

Re: #4G63510 Suspension

I have 2 3/4" of front travel, with 300 lbs/inch springs. Lack of suspension travel and/or hitting the bump rubber or stop is one of the worst evils for handling.
