Q: tom lawrence wrote those dynos still measure the engines torque inertial dynos dynojet for example dont... they measure power be it hp or kw and interpret torque based on engine rpm. this is why a lot of times diesel guys only get hp ratings from their dyno runs - becuase they dont feel like setting up the cumbersome little optical sensor to read rpm from the engine. the dynojet measures horsepower but it has no idea what the rpm is please explain how you can tell the hosepower without knowing the rpm. i saw your dyno sheets. quite impressive. what happened at 2650 rpm on sheet 2 im not ignoring the other questions i just dont have time to answer them right now. -- ken .

snowing like hell about a inch a hour. supposed to stop late this afternoon. you must have gotten this yesterday or was it south of you roy fur face sheeesch. i shaved last week.. it started snowing a little after noon and i started in last night at 11pm and just got finished. got about 5-6 inches with a bit of wind to make it interesting. was a nice snow to push if it hadnt been in foot and a half ridges along the down-wind side of every building. we had a weird storm. snow about an inch a hour went to sleet back to snow then thunder lightning and snow in excess of 3 a hour for a total of about 12-14. heavy wet stuff that froze up during the night. put in about 16 hours then out for 6 more this morning. have i mentioned how much i like those revos yup ya did!! i gotta get something going with tire and weight. im useing the bfg rugged trail tas that came with the truck. they seem to bite pretty well self clean good too. im going to form and pour some concrete that will fit behind the wheel wells and extend back to the tailgate probably 12 high. hopefully that weight will take care of the few traction problems ive run into. i do miss the blizzaks though they were the best imho. but if the weight works ill stay with what i have. are the revos a dedicated tire or can ya run them in the summer year round tire and not very noisey either. okay how much did they wear in the summer have fun!! i did nothing but cash this morning. tired sleepy and grouchy fur face but ill bet well fed! g damned straight!! big plateful of made-from-scratch sausage gravy over a real spud fried on a grill. several cups of coffee to wash it down and then went to work and got a blueberry pie out of the snack machine. came home and had the remnants of the wc crave case for lunch. doesnt get much better than that. you must be a joy to be around after eating those things.bfg well knowing the springfield got paid for overnight helps too. yup the sig 226 got paid for as well. i might take a ride and see if i can find a sig 239 for a ccw. christmas is coming. what really sucks is that in ma even after the ban has been lifted our politicans have limited what you can buy in this state. go here www.fsgun.com find the box entitled guns you cant buy in ma it is a real good and informative site. roy denny .

save yourself alot of time and money and stay away from drilling it out. you will break the bit and be pissed off. i was changing my wheels from the oversize ones that came with my truck bought it used to normal size wheels. ive changed 3 tires but 1 i cant get off because one of the 8 lug nuts is stuck on the lug. the oversize tires lug nuts use a special adapter that goes inside the lug nut american racing wheels to turn it off the lug. the problem is worse because it is not only stuck but now the lug nut has cracked so the adapter turns freely inside. what are my options can i drill it out anything to watch out for would a tap help also can i drill all the way through the bolt then what this is on the driver side rear wheel will i damage the brakes maybe i need an arc welder to just burn the lug and bolt off sorry for all the questions but i going crazy over this. please post reply. 6 pipe wrench with a cheater always works. coasty .

as an installer i would never recommend that you do this yourself. you are looking at about a 3 hour job and they are not easy. you will have to cut the starter wire for it to split the relay as an example of part of the installation the first thing i have to ask is what type of tranny do you have in most places there are legal aspects you must consider before you install a remote start on a manual tranny. it is against the law in some states to do this. as for brands i would not recommend anything from dei. we have used them in the past and had less then a 50/50 satisfaction rate. @localhost.talkaboutautos.com partsandmore@alltel.net says... anyone have a great experience with a remote start kit and self installation please advise brand #s and details 05 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with factory keyless entry gas 5.7 hemi i wouldnt do it myself. let someone who has done tons of them do it. my 03 ram has a viper starter in it the third vehicle done at the same local place by the same guy. he never even opened the installation stuff he just did it. this time of year they really do a ton of them. if you havent dealt with the place before check them out at the bbb website. if they have been around for a while they will probably be ok anyway as word gets out quick. bdk doesnt dei make most of them i know clifford viper and a couple more are made by dei. never really had much of a problem with any of the three except this one needed the brains replaced when the blower quit when in remote start. took a half hour and was free under warranty. bdk .

i agree with you on the newbie folks pulling large rv rigs. ive seen some scary stuff. in most states would someone pulling an rv or a non commercial pickup pulling an equipment trailer be required to go through weigh stations bill depends on the state. most dont bother with rvs unless they have obvious problems. all commercial vehicles are supposed to go over them including p/us but i have seen them ignore p/us more than once. in my otr driving i have seen some very scary things as well. ----== posted via feeds.com - unlimited-unrestricted-secure usenet ==---- http//www.feeds.com the #1 group service in the world! 120000+ groups ----= east and west-coast server farms - total privacy via encryption =---- .
